When you search your soul for your DEEPEST desires you may find that you want to be peaceful like a Buddhist, you will want to be a warrior like St. Paul, Kind and compassionate like Mother Theresa. You desire the best of health for your loved ones. Then you will want something to eat...

WILL SOMETHING DIE FOR YOUR LUNCH???? Your deepest desires are VEGAN. Paul McDonald 2EDEN Vegetarian

Ahimsa love to all living beings.


         11th November 2011
I have today attended the annual Christmas event given by the young Indian Ahimsa group led by their tireless international spokesperson Nitin Mehta MBE, very accomplished in supporting animal rights and always promoting vegetarianism, Nitin may just save the planet, he knows what it takes to turn things round.       But is the planet listening???

        Ahimsa is a Sanskrit term which is often translated meaning to non-injury to living beings or dynamic harmlessness.

        Ahimsa a word that has several opinions like a picture does.

Remove the “a” in front of Ahimsa and you get “himsa” which is to harm.

So let us celebrate Ahimsa as a living love for all things from the smallest of tiny, tiny insects to the biggest whale in the sea. God created all of these so who are we to destroy.

When God said in the Bible Genesis_1:26  “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”     That dominion did not mean to kill and hurt and harm and destroy and test on, not to pull and push and punish poor creatures that are weaker than ourselves just because we can dominate them.

Dominion is to love, to cherish, to protect, to nourish, to flourish, to encourage. why? because we can.

The event was great we had a full vegetarian curry with bread and Jellabies and all sorts of fine food, as well as meeting Nitin,  I sat with an MP a once mayor of Croydon, on the same table as the present Mayor as well as painter Pat Mears and Helen Buckland from Croydon vegetarians and my very own dear wife Linn.
