WHY VEGAN?

Want to know the truth and be given the Red Pill? If you've seen The Matrix you know at the beginning of the movie the main character is presented with two pills, one Blue, one Red. He has to make a choice. If he chooses the Blue Pill he'll fall asleep, and when he wakes up everything will be exactly the same as it's always been. If he chooses the Red Pill he'll finally learn the truth.

Everything makes perfect sense as you learn the truth. Becoming vegan you will be doing a great favor to your body. You will be eating everything that naturally grows from the Earth, and at the same time you won't be contributing to animal cruelty and world contamination. It's a three-way win!

~

Quieres aprender la verdad y obtener la Pastilla Roja? Si has visto El Matrix el personaje principal se le presentan dos pastillas, una azul y una roja. Él tiene que hacer una decisión. Si él elige la Pastilla Azul él se dormirá, y cuando se despierte todo será exactamente igual como siempre ha sido. Si él elige la Pastilla Roja finalmente aprenderá la verdad.

Todo tiene perfecto sentido cuando aprendes la verdad. Hacerse vegano le haras un gran favor a tu cuerpo. Estarás comiendo todo naturalmente que crece de la Tierra, y al mismo tiempo no estarás contribuyendo a la crueldad de animales y la contaminación al planeta. ¡Los tres salen ganando!

Favorite Quotes

Never believe that animals suffer less than humans. Pain is the same for them that it is for us. Even worse, because they cannot help themselves. ~ Dr. Louis J.

The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men. ~Alice Walker

A morgue is used for the storage of human corpses. In modern times they have customarily been refrigerated to delay decomposition. If you store animal corpses (or parts of their corpses) in your refrigerator to delay decomposition, then your fridge is their morgue. Dinner is their funeral. And your body becomes their coffin where they slowly rot... ~ Anita Vegan-Mahdessian

A mother's love is universal; it's not species specific.

If I would not want it done to me, I will not allow it to be done to others. "Others" includes animals. ~Andrew Kirschner

We look to the heavens and search for life on other planets, but have such a utter disregard for life on our own planet. ~Dhara Meehra

I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being. ~Abraham Lincoln

I will not eat anything that walks, runs, skips, hops or crawls. God knows that I've crawled on occasion, and I'm glad that no one ate me. ~Alex Poulos

One meal, soon forgotten, in exchange for a whole life. ~Author Unknown

Animals are my friends, and I don’t eat my friends. ~George Bernard Shaw

If you love animals called pets, why do you eat animals called dinner?  ~As seen on a shirt at veganstore.com

All beings tremble before violence. All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do? ~Buddha

God loved the birds and invented trees.  Man loved the birds and invented cages.  ~Jacques Deval

Why should man expect his prayer for mercy to be heard by What is above him when he shows no mercy to what is under him?  ~Pierre Troubetzkoy

Hunting is not a sport. In a sport, both sides should know they're in the game.  ~Paul Rodriguez

When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when the tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity.  ~George Bernard Shaw

Animals can communicate quite well. And they do. And generally speaking, they are ignored.  ~Alice Walker

Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar.  ~Bradley Millar

If anyone wants to save the planet, all they have to do is just stop eating meat. ~Sir Paul McCartney

An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language.  ~Martin Buber

Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. ~Albert Einstein

The greatness of a nation … can be judged by the way its animals are treated. ~Mahatma Gandhi

When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need. ~Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb


To become vegetarian is to step into the stream which leads to nirvana. ~Buddha


From the Bible

Genesis 1:29-30 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

Romans 14:21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother or sister to fall.

Proverbs 15:17 Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred.

Ecclesiastes 3:19 Every species of animals are a race and nation of their own that we share this planet Earth with, we are no better and no more superior.

Isaiah 11:6-9 The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, and their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper's nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

"When someone becomes a monk, they need to reestablish their relationship with the animals. Animals are God's creatures that need to be loved and cherished. Compassion towards God's animals is one of the spiritual practices a monk must exercise to honor the name of God".
