Will you take this *Pledge:*? Please comment!
While we all move forward on the path of Ahimsa this Paryushan and Daslakshan, let us take a moment to introspect the impact of our actions in day-to-day life. Today, when innumerable animals are suffering in unimaginable ways for dairy products and other animal products, Jain values urge us to intervene. While we take all measures to reduce all forms of Hinsa by refusing to eat and hurt animals, our consumption – for example, that of dairy and dairy products – is inherently full of suffering. Let us take a pledge this time to not participate in this suffering. Let us take a pledge to give veganism a try this Paryushan/ Daslakshan, and take a pledge to refuse the consumption of any animal products and using the animals in any capacity.
This Paryushan and Dashalakshan, I decide to move forward on the path of Ahimsa. I refuse to participate in causing immense suffering to innumerable innocent animals suffer due to milk or use any other animal products. In face of this immense suffering, I vow to give veganism an honest try this Paryushan and Daslakshan.
So hard to be positive and constructive at a time of terrible war in Europe! And yet we must try to avoid the all devouring vortex of despair …
