Get Up With Determination And Fight


Just like metals and minerals lying deep inside the Earth, there are vast resources lying untapped within each of us.
In man’s struggles at achieving any desired object, there is in reality no necessity for him to go in quest of external
forces to aid him. He has within himself vast resources and powers lying untapped, or else only partially utilized. If he
applies his faculties properly and intelligently, he can easily attain his desired goal.

One of the most precious of these resources is determination. That’s the unmined gold waiting to be tapped. Great
personalities who perform uncommon feats, tap into these latent resources. Purpose of this book is to help you do
that and light up your soul.

Scientists estimate that the average person has conscious control of about 10% of his mental powers, while the rest
lie hidden like the bulk of an iceberg floating beneath the surface.

Without firm determination, your life is like a rudderless ship, tossing and turning in the ocean of material existence.
So many people just drift aimlessly in their lives not knowing what they want or where they want to be. They can learn
from a postage stamp whose usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing till it gets there.

Life in this material world is not a carefree, happy-go-lucky, all-expenses-paid luxurious romp. You have to stick on
and fight. A gigantic oak you see today was in fact just a little acorn that held its ground.

This book will inspire you to never give up, no matter what.

Tsunami of Diseases Headed Our Way - Know Your Food


Before Time Runs Out
Ask any child where their food comes from, and the chances are he or she will say the supermarket.

And most adults don’t know a lot more about how food ends up on their plate either.

We have taken food for granted. It’s a mistake for which we are paying dearly. Food doesn’t grow on supermarket
shelves.

According to United Nations, a disease tsunami is sweeping the world. Humanity is dying out. This is the result of our
deep ignorance about our food.

Food processing and health care are now multi-trillion dollar industries. Profit-seeking leeches have realized there is
lot of money in making people sick and then selling them fancy healthcare plans. We have taken these merchants of
death as our well-wishing friends.

Eating has become a very complicated affair. It is not supposed to be a rocket science. Even the birds, beasts and
insects know what to eat. They have no scientific institutions or research organizations.

Time to be enlightened about what we put in our mouth is now. We are digging our grave with our teeth, day in and
day out. When will we pull our heads out of the sand and see the reality we face?

If you don’t have good health, the other things like food, housing, transportation, education and recreation don’t mean
much.

At least a dozen studies a day are being rolled out to further confuse the already confused public. This book may
have some definitive answers to our dinnertime dilemmas.

Capitalism Communism & Cowism - A New Economics For


The 21st Century

If humanity and the planet have to survive, we have to replace our present day economic model. It’s a fossil fuel
based, car-centred, energy inefficient model and promotes over exploitation of natural resources, encourages a
throwaway society, creates social injustice and is not viable any longer.

This book presents an alternative economic system for the 21st Century, which works for the people and the Planet.

Corporatocracy - You Are A Corporate Citizen, A Slave of


Invisible And Ruthless Masters
A government is the system by which a state or community is governed. This usage is analogous to what is called an
‘administration’. A form of government refers to the set of political systems and institutions that make up the
organisation of a specific government.

Government of any kind affects every human activity in many important ways. For this reason, political scientists
generally argue that government should not be studied by itself; but should be studied along with anthropology,
economics, history, philosophy, and sociology.

Over the centuries, the world has seen different types of governments. The Classical Greek philosopher Plato
discusses five types of regimes - aristocracy, timocracy, oligarchy, democracy and tyranny. These five regimes
progressively degenerate starting with aristocracy at the top and tyranny at the bottom.

Then there are many other forms of government like monarchy, geniocracy, kratocracy, meritocracy, autocracy,
dictatorship, fascism, diarchy, nepotocracy, kleptocracy, ochlocracy, netocracy, theocracy, stratocracy, plutocracy,
maoism, anocracy, anarchy, bureaucracy, feudalism, magocracy and technocracy.

History has witnessed each of these regimes at one point in time or the other.

But today the world is ruled by one homogenous system of government called corporatocracy. Today irrespective of
the country you live in, you are living under the rule of big business corporations. No matter who your president is,
business corporations run your government. They control or greatly influence what you eat and drink, where you live,
what you wear and even what you’re taught in schools up to the highest levels. Through advertising, public relations,
and mass media, they shape your views of the world and your views of each other.

They even now own patents on our genetic code, the most basic elements of human life, and are likely planning to
manipulate and control them as just another commodity to exploit for profit. Corporations stand as the dominant
institutions in our society. They provide the products and services upon which most of us have come to depend.

In this greed-propelled growth of human society, this institution stands tall over others, working silently in the
background, casting its dark shadows all over. Parliaments are only meant to endorse what is already decided in the
boardrooms.

It’s high time you got acquainted with your invisible masters.

Cow Killing And Beef Export - The Great Plan To Turn India
Into A Desert By 2050

India, homeland of the sacred cow has become the world’s leading beef exporter.

International community is shocked that a nation in which cow slaughter is officially prohibited and is an utter
anathema to the majority of the population, will overtake three icons of cattle ranching (Australia, Brazil and US) and
become the world’s leading beef exporter.

Present Indian government came to power 10 years ago. After assuming office, their first move was to modernize
existing slaughterhouses and grant licenses for establishing new slaughterhouses. A lucrative subsidy ranging from
50-90% was offered to lure entrepreneurs in this area. Contacts were established with slaughterhouse machinery
suppliers in Europe and China. The whole government machinery was mobilized to usher in a new era of increased
meat consumption and export. It was a significant policy shift in last several centuries. Even the British in their 200
years of rule could not accomplish what the present Indian government has accomplished in just 10 years.

This team has fulfilled the dream of India’s founders who can finally rest in peace now. It was their cherished desire to
see Indians eat, drink and have sex like Westerners. These founders must be reveling in their graves, having fulfilled
their long pending dreams. After independence, it took Indian leaders 65 long years to accomplish this ‘feat’.

But this accomplishment has come with a big price tag. Soil of India, deprived of farmyard manure, is in revolt.
Scorched with chemicals, topsoil is getting destroyed and land is turning into a desert.
Indian agriculture is a fragile system which has withstood the test of time. India supports approximately 16% of the
world’s human population and 20% of the world’s livestock population on merely 2.5% of the world’s geographical
area. Meddling in this sensitive area is having disastrous impact on the nation’s food security.

Consequently, there is a genocide in progress in India. The food supply of 1.2 billion people is being systematically
destroyed. Gradual handing over of food sector to unscrupulous corporations is a bold step in that direction.

Soil is the Earth’s fragile skin that anchors all life. Soil is the most important national asset and its conservation
deserves the highest national priority. Any civilization is founded on topsoil and soil erosion destroys it. Policy makers
are blissfully unaware of this fact and national policies are being made in boardrooms as parliament takes a
backseat.

To Save Time Is To Lengthen Life

Time is our most precious resource. All we have in life is time. Often, we realize the importance of time only when
there is little of it left. Our greatest capital asset is our unexpired years of productive life.

We can not influence the supply of this resource. C.S. Lewis says, “The future is something which everyone reaches
at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.”
This realization is not very easy to come by. It is said that a wise person does at once, what a fool does at last. Both
do the same thing; only at different times. Henry Twells laments the passing away of time, “When as a child I laughed
and wept, time crept. When as a youth I waxed more bold, time strolled. When I became a full-grown man, time RAN.
When older still I daily grew, time FLEW. Soon I shall find, in passing on, time gone.”

So the bad news is time flies. But the good news is you’re the pilot. If you want, you can steer the plane of your life.
Fortunate are the ones who stand forewarned. Because forewarned is forearmed.

To Kill Cow Means To End Human Civilization

The term sacred cow finds its origin in the ancient Vedic tradition, dating back to thousands of years. What really
prompted these folks to revere and worship the cows? Were they really so stupid as to worship an animal? Are we
really that smart now to ridicule their idea? Why didn’t they propose to worship any other animal like tiger, dog or
monkey.

This book delineates various aspects of cow sciences as presented by the timeless voice of an old civilization.

Spare Us Some Carcasses - An Appeal From The Vultures

A majority of the world’s biologists are convinced that a “mass extinction” of plants and animals is underway that
poses a major threat to humans in this century. Yet most of us are only dimly aware of the problem.

Among all these species, extinction of vultures might be the last straw that could break our planet’s back. Vultures are
highly specialized to rapidly dispose of large carcasses, thus playing a critical role in nutrient cycling, leading other
scavengers to carcasses and reducing the risk of contamination by pathogens by quickly consuming decomposing
carcasses.

No other species is as efficient or well equipped to clean our atmosphere and keep us safe. These vultures are dying
because we have encroached upon their food supply. We can survive in myriad of ways but vultures can only survive
on one thing - decomposing carcasses.

It’s time we seriously think of sparing some carcasses to these poor cousins of ours.

Cow And Humanity - Made For Each Other

We're finally going to get the bill for the Industrial Age. If the projections are right, it's going to be a big one: the
ecological collapse of the planet, says Jeremy Rifkin. At the dawn of the industrial age two hundred years ago, we
took a wrong turn when we started living on nature’s capital instead of nature’s incomes. We started gorging upon
resources that took nature millions of years to create. These resources were saved up by nature according to its own
plan of functioning.

Nature has her own way; she better understands her own affairs than we. We have one planet to live on and all our
needs have to be satisfied with whatever is in here. We can not import a thing from other planets for our survival, no
matter how much we advertise our dubious moon missions. All we can do is blow up billions and console the
taxpayers with few rocks.

This senseless exploitation of resources can not go on forever. This cradle to grave economics in which we turn
every natural resource into a toxic waste is inherently unsustainable. In nature, there is no such thing as waste. So
called waste generated by one living being is effectively utilized by another and so on until nothing is left. This is
called the cycle of life. But today our linear system of living has replaced this natural cyclical system.

This is where cow comes into picture. Living with cow is living on nature’s incomes without depleting its capital
resources.

In the natural plan of Vedic living, human society depends on cows for its requirements of economic prosperity, food
production, soil fertility, nutrition, healthcare, fuel supply, transport, spiritual wellbeing, sustainable development,
individual and social peace, higher consciousness, development of human qualities, performance of religious duties,
environmental protection, ecological preservation, advancement of art & culture, cottage industry etc. Many of the
maladies staring in our face today can be traced to this factor – humanity distancing itself from the timeless culture of
cow protection.

Life Is Nothing But Time


Time Is Life, Life Is Time

Time is the stuff life is made of. Time equals life, and wasting your time is wasting your life. If you spend one hour on
someone or something, you are giving away a piece of your life to that someone or something. Therefore you have to
be careful to whom or where you give away your life. If you are not careful with time, time slips away like sand in your
fist. Letting time slip away is letting life slip away. Like time and tide, life too waits for none. Life is precious, therefore
time is precious.

“Lost wealth may be replaced by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance or medicine, but lost
time is gone forever”, says Samuel Smiles. The same minute never strikes twice on the clock of fate. Time and words
can’t be recalled, even if it was only yesterday. You may delay, but time will not.
In this age of rampant consumerism, Thoreau warns us, “The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is
required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.” Time is turned into money with which we pay for
goods and services. Therefore we pay for things with our life. We don’t own things, things own us.

Cows Are Cool - Love 'Em

This book deals with the internal lives of the cows and contains true stories from around the world. Cow is a very
sober animal and does not wag its tail as often as a dog. This does not mean dog is good and cow is food. All
animals including the dog should be shown love and care. But cow especially has a serious significance for human
existence in this world. Talk about cows’ feelings is often brushed off as fluffy and sentimental but this book proves it

We Feel Just Like You Do

How egocentric of humans to think we are the only beings who can think, feel, bond with others, etc. As the
“dominating” species, we have a responsibility to care for and protect the entire planet, including the other animals.

Those who describe animals as not having any thoughts or feelings come closer to the description they’re trying to
give.

Its enormously puzzling that extreme suffering only gets widely questioned if it is the suffering of members of the
human species. It is extraordinary how many people just accept the appalling treatment of such a vast number of
animals.

Animals have souls and we have a duty to respect them! Anything less is to deny one’s humanity and one’s own soul!

Numerous stories outlined in this book prove this point, beyond the shadow of a doubt.

Career Women - The Violence of Modern Jobs And The Lost
Art of Home Making

A civilization, in order to survive, must be successfully transmitted from one generation to the next. Woman plays a
very important role in this transmission. She is the first teacher of the child. In that sense, women have always
provided the foundational support for civilization. The edifice of our modern society would never have existed if not for
the civilizing influence of women upon men.

According to Alpin MacLaren, Women cause men to settle down, and to look to family and security. Women inspire
men to achieve in the business world by their moral support and yes, their need to be provided for. Women have
trained the boys of each generation to behave in a civilized society. The traditional role women have had in
civilization is critical and provides the foundation for everything else.

Now, remove that influence and what happens? Look around you and there you will see the answer. According to
MacLaren, feminism has pulled the foundation out from under our civilization, by convincing women that in the
workforce lies their destiny instead of being wives and mothers. Men are now forced to compete with women at work
instead of joining with them in a family. The house where couples live is no longer a home, where children are always
cared for and supervised. Men are no longer in a position of sole bread winner and therefore do not have a known
and well defined role in the family. They are leaving their families in record numbers every day. Civilization is
beginning to crumble rapidly, as crime increases and neighborhoods become nothing but a collection of strangers
who do not take care of each other. Children are raising themselves and learning many things from their friends,
television, movies and even the internet, that parents should be appalled at. But since the foundation of our society
has been removed, the trend of the “work-orphaned” children continues and accelerates.

Gita warned us about this long ago: When irreligion is prominent in the family, O Krsna, the women of the family
become polluted, and from the degradation of womanhood, O descendant of Vrsni, comes unwanted progeny (Bg
1.40). By the evil deeds of those who destroy the family tradition and thus give rise to unwanted children, all kinds of
community projects and family welfare activities are devastated (Bg 1.42).

Noble Cow - Munching Grass, Looking Curious And Just


Hanging Around

This book deals with the ability of animals to feel, perceive or be conscious, and to have subjective experiences.

In Taiwan, a cow separated from owner, goes on hunger strike. In rural Cambodia, a motherless child finds mother in
a cow as he suckles her. Down in Australia a flood heroine, after rescuing her owner, is leading a pampered
existence. In Brazil’s Pantanal swamps, a cow was seen wandering among the crocodiles while in India, the land of
holy cows, a bull hero is booked out for two years. Up in Alps, the Swiss are combating stress by renting out the
mountain cows while in Germany, the nation’s focus has been on Yvonne, the runaway cow. There are numerous
such stories here. Cows rule and cow rock!

The great blind spot of our modern Civilization is the mistreatment and disregard for non-human life in nearly every

Where does all the war, racism, terrorism, violence, and cruelty that's so endemic to human civilization come from?
Why do humans exploit and massacre each other so regularly? Why is our species so violence-prone? To answer

An Inch of Time Can Not Be Bought With A Mile of Gold


Managing time is important but there is something even more important. That is, where you invest your time. There is
no use of saving time when your time expenditure is in the wrong direction.

What comes first, the compass or the clock? Before one can truly manage time (the clock), it is important to know
where you are going, what your priorities and goals are, in which direction you are headed (the compass). Where you
are headed is more important than how fast you are going.

After you have set your priorities, then you can set out to find time for it. This is where time management comes into
picture. There is time, hidden in the nooks and crevices of your day. If you have the will, you will find it. A person
learned 3 languages by reading vocabulary cards while peeing. Normally a person spends 10-15 minutes a day doing
this duty. There is nothing much that can be done in the loo anyway.

Another person learned 2 new skills while waiting for his phone to be answered. Average time is close to 10 seconds
before a call gets answered. Several minutes a day can be saved by keeping some information cards in the pocket
which can be leafed through during this period.

While taking shower, you can listen to an audio book. One person read over 50 books in 3 years while waiting for
websites to load in his computer. Of course this was way back when internet was slow. But still it is slow in many
countries.

With the available technology, you can carry your office and library in your notebook computer or Ipad. A whole world
has moved inside these electronic devices. Technology can be a great time waster or great time saver, it depends on
you.

Cow Dung - A Down-To-Earth Solution To Global Warming


And Climate Change
Environmental crisis is for real and it’s coming around faster than you think. It’s not a brainchild of some conspiracy
theorist but a tangible, perceivable fact, proven by the catastrophic events all over the world.

But for most of us, caught up in the daily grind, it’s hardly a subject worth pondering over. Common man in the streets
of London, New York or Delhi has very little time to worry about some ozone layer up there or some damn iceberg in
the North Pole. At best, it is a snow bear’s problem.

But the scientific fraternity and many political leaders don’t think so. They are waking up to the horrors of global
warming and climatic change. Hectic efforts are on to contain the damage but with very little success.

This book provides a simple solution to this grave crisis which has the potential to wipe out life altogether. This is a
calamity of unprecedented proportions coming our way and a point of no return for the industrial civilization.

One of the arguments sceptics throw back at you is that the climate has always changed, and that is absolutely right.
It’s the rate of change that is the problem right now. It’s changing so quickly that it exceeds our adaptive capacity.

We are in a hole and it’s time to stop digging.

As Long As We Have Slaughterhouses, We'll Have Wars


Savagery, much attributed to the ‘old world’ is not entirely absent in the ‘new world’ but rather it is more prevalent
than ever before. Modern civilization has made the 20th century the bloodiest century in human history.
Industrialization of wars and violence in the 20th century led to killing of more than 350 million people, directly or
indirectly. Science and technology led to discovery and mass usage of lethal weapons. Usage of petroleum
expanded the war zone to include several continents. Localized battles of ‘old world’ turned into global World wars.

But world wars haven’t stopped for a moment. World has not seen respite from war. Right at this moment there are
several countries fighting wars with one another. There is internal war going on in almost half of the countries in the
world. All these wars are being fuelled and sustained by billions of tonnes of weapons produced by the Military-
industrial complex every year. An impressive array of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons are waiting to be
dropped on our heads. What has been produced at great cost and is being stored with great care, is certainly meant
for use and will be used one day.

But why are we so hell-bent on killing each other? Why is our species so violence-prone? To answer these questions
we would do well to think about our exploitation and slaughter of animals and its effect on human civilization. Could it
be that we oppress and kill each other so readily because our abuse and slaughter of animals has desensitized us to
the suffering and death of others? An ancient Chinese verse so rightly puts it, “For hundreds of thousands of years
the stew in the pot has brewed hatred and resentment that is difficult to stop. If you wish to know why there are
disasters of armies and weapons in the world, listen to the piteous cries from the slaughterhouse at midnight.” Agnes
Ryan concurs, “Wars will never cease while men still kill other animals for food, for to turn any living creature into a
roast, a steak, a chop, or any other type of ‘meat’ takes the same kind of violence, the same kind of bloodshed, and
the same kind of mental processes required to change a living man into a dead soldier.”

Peace will be possible only if we live and let others live.

World Through The Eyes of Scriptures

Mahabharata says, Ordinary men see through their eyes, Cows see by smell, kings by spies and the learned men
see through the scriptural knowledge. We think of the world as we are. In fact the world is different than the way we
see it. Most of our paradigms are inaccurate because we do not have all of the information. We think we do but we
don’t. When we receive additional or new information it often causes us to rethink and change our paradigm.

Challenge your assumptions about yourself, others, situations, and things. The world transforms as you transform
yourself. The key to personal effectiveness is to change our paradigms, our assumptions, the way we see the world.

A young couple moved into the house next to a church compound. A few days later, the pastor’s wife called the
pastor into the kitchen. She was peering out the window. “Look at our neighbor hanging the wash out on the line.
That laundry is still dirty! She must be a newlywed who doesn’t know how to wash clothes properly. Maybe she’s not
using enough laundry soap.”

The pastor urged his wife not to say anything, but the next week, sure enough, the neighbor’s dirty laundry hung on
the line again. And again the following week. Every time the pastor’s wife peered out the window, she saw her
neighbor’s dirty laundry hanging on the clothesline.

Then, one morning as she scurried around getting breakfast, the pastor’s wife exclaimed, “Look! She finally got the
clothes clean! I wonder who helped her?” The pastor smiled and said, “Honey, no one helped her. I just got up early
this morning and cleaned our windows!”
This famous story has a profound message. We need to rinse our mind and intellect in the light of transcendental
knowledge. In Vedic terminology this is known as ‘cheto darpana marjanam’, cleansing the mirror of heart and soul.

India - A World Leader In Cow Killing And Beef Export - An


Italian Did It In 10 Years
What The British Could Not Do In 200 Years And The Muslims In 800 Years

May 2004 marked a significant moment in Indian history when a newly elected government decided to accord highest
priority to beef consumption and export, making it ‘truly a national initiative’.

India is known all over the world as a peace loving country. It is a historical fact that India has never attacked any
other nation and has always believed in peaceful coexistence.

It is also probably the only country that provides for animal care in its constitution. Animals are mentioned as
something more than just food. Each citizen is enjoined to care for and preserve nature and its creatures.

Compassion and non-violence formed the core belief of all the religions that originated from this great land.

Traditional Indian or Vedic way of life teaches respect for all life forms. In their view, all living beings are born of
mother nature and have an equal right to life. Indeed, in Vedic conception, animals are treated like innocent children
and are meant to be given all protection.

But suddenly India’s national policy took a U-turn when a particular political party came to power. It was a significant
moment in the history of this great nation.

Website of the Ministry of Food Processing Industries stated:

“There is an urgent need to frame a right strategy for the development of meat and poultry production in the country.
This will certainly bring prosperity to millions of our rural citizens and create employment in rural India. Having
achieved the Green Revolution, the White Revolution and the Blue Revolution, it is time to ask the question “can the
Pink Revolution be far behind?” Certainly this will require large investment in infrastructure, mainly in cold storages,
and modern meat processing plants. Without a strong and dependable cold chain, a vital sector like meat industry,
which is based mostly on perishable products, cannot survive and grow.”

They relentlessly pursued their agenda for a decade and the crowning success came when India became the top
seller of beef in 2013.

Lost Time Is Never Found


Time needs your tender loving care because it is a unique, irreplaceable resource. Taking it for granted would be
your undoing.

Time is not found on supermarkets shelves in case you need an extra supply. There are no vending machines even.
There is no place where you can buy or hire extra time. Neither you can pull it out from the last year’s stock. As the
Sun sets on the horizon, your day is gone and as the Sun rises in the east, your night is gone. Gone means gone for
ever, never to return. There are many things in life which go and come back but time is not one of those.

When something is in short supply, you look for a substitute. Everything in the world has a substitute except time.
Nothing can

replace time or take its place. Time is a universal ingredient. Everything requires time. Here again there are no
exceptions, no shortcuts. Everything is produced in time, stays in time and perishes in time.

Time is cruel. It shows no mercy. When time is up, it’s up.

A poet says,

This thing all things devours

Birds, beasts, trees, flowers

Gnaws iron, bites steel,

Grinds hard stones to meal,

Slays king, ruins town,

And beats high mountain down!

Respect the sheer power of time. And do it before your time’s up.

If Violence Has To Stop - Slaughterhouses Must Close Down


A Manifesto For A Slaughter-free Civilization
We are living in violent times and there is no disputing this fact. Wars are raging around the globe. There is war within
the family, in the form of discontent, arguments, separation, and divorce; war in the community in the form of gang
wars, crime, robberies, murders, and rape; there is internal war going on in almost half of the countries in the world.
Then there are industrial and economic rivalries as well as international wars on terrorism.

This era of war is entering a new phase, in which the great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of
international conflict will be cultural. Divisions between civilizations are deepening and increasing in importance. From
Yugoslavia to the Middle East to Central Asia, the fault lines of civilizations are the battle lines of the future. Then
there are weapons of mass destruction that can wipe out life in a matter of hours.

If you believe in the principle of cause and effect, there must be a cause for this senseless violence. We are
becoming victims of war because we are raging a war on non-human life forms. What goes around comes around. As
you sow so shall you reap. We are being slaughtered by sophisticated weaponry as we slaughter animals in state of
the art slaughterhouses.

Plutarch offers an insight into the evolution of wars, “At the beginning it was some wild and harmful animal that was
eaten, then a bird or fish that had its flesh torn. And so when our murderous instincts had tasted blood and grew
practised on wild animals, they advanced to the labouri`ng ox and the well-behaved sheep and the housewarding
cock; thus, little by little giving a hard edge to our insatiable appetite, we have advanced to wars and the slaughter
and murder of human beings.”

According to author Cynthia Hodges, cruelty to animals and violence towards people have something in common:
both types of victims are living beings, feel pain, experience distress, and may die from their injuries. Until recently,
however, violence towards animals had been considered to be unrelated to violence towards children and the elderly,
and other forms of violence. A correlation has now been established between animal abuse, family violence, and
other forms of community violence. A growing body of research indicates that people who commit acts of cruelty
towards animals rarely stop there.

It’s time we realize this if we at all want a world which is safe for us and our families.

Glories of Thy Wondrous Name

Since time immemorial, in every continent and in every major organized and pagan religion, followers have used a
string of beads to chant repetitive, uplifting sonic phrases to help create a sense of calm and purpose in life. Most
common among these phrases are the ones that refer to names of God and chanting of these names is probably the
single most important religious practice that cuts across all religion, culture and civilization lines.

Names of God, known as Holy Names, is a form of addressing God present in liturgy or prayer of various world
religions. This has been established as most common spiritual practice in Western and Eastern spiritual practices. A
number of traditions have lists of many names of God which enumerate His various qualities. The Qur’an contains the
Ninety-nine Names of Allah. Judaism refers to 72 Divine Names and Mahabharata text contains a thousand names of
Vishnu.

There are scriptural references for that in all religions because every genuine religious tradition in the world teaches
that God’s names are holy and meant to be glorified.

Cow Dung - For Food Security And Survival of Human Race

We have taken our food for granted and most of us have no idea where it comes from. Jennifer Hill from Bristol
recalls, “Several years ago I took my daughter and her friend to our allotments. As we left I dug up a couple of
bunches of my prized organic carrots and offered one of them to my daughter’s friend.With a look of absolute disgust
the young girl said, ‘My mommy doesn’t get food from the dirt! She goes to Tescos!’ Still, at least she knew what a
carrot was.”

Ask any child where their food comes from, and the chances are he or she will say the supermarket.

And most adults don’t know a lot more about how food ends up on their plate either.

Civilization survives on an ample supply of food and all previous civilizations developed near a food source. When
farm productivity declined, usually as a result of soil mismanagement, civilizations also declined - and occasionally
vanished entirely.

Today, all over the world, more than seven and a half million acres of soil has been degraded. That’s larger than the
U.S. and Canada combined. What remains is ailing as a result of compaction, erosion and salination making it near
impossible to plant and adding to greenhouse gases and air pollution. Soil degradation is putting the future of the
global population is at risk according to a National Geographic article by Charles Mann. Civil unrest in Latin America,
Asia and Africa have been attributed to a lack of food and affordable food as a result of poor soil.
Any layman can understand the vital importance of topsoil as a rare and non-renewable resource which sustains all
life on the planet. It is considered non-renewable because it takes centuries, if not millenniums to form one centimeter
of top soil whereas it can be squandered in a matter of few decades.

We are trying to fool nature, forgetting that nature can not be fooled. Willian Lines warns, “For, although people can
be fooled, tricked, and beguiled, nature can not. Material reality resists importuning, finessing, or re-negotiation.
Nature’s machinery is invariant, not subject to legislation or cultural conditioning. It can not be compromised.”

We need to heed the warning and solutions presented in this book if we are at all serious about turning these trends
around and building a safer, sustainable future.

A Heart Beats In Us - The Same As In You

Human society is becoming increasingly heartless. Apathy and desensitization are growing and compassion is
decreasing all over the world. People simply do not care about one another the way they used to. Today, we are
more self-absorbed and self-centered than ever. When people see some one dying or getting killed right in front of
them, they don’t even so much as wink an eye.
In 2011 a security camera video caught a terrible scene in China. A toddler was wandering in a narrow street and
was hit by a van. The van stopped, then moved on while the rear tires slowly rolled over the young girl’s legs. She lay
there screaming, but many people just walked by.
Minutes later, another van ran over the toddler without slowing down. People continued to walk by unfazed, and
motorcyclists rode around her barely moving body.
Finally, some 10 minutes later, a woman came to her aid and got help.
In another case, a school girl was sexually assaulted in a New York alley by a group of young students. The passers
by, instead of helping or calling the police, joined in and the assault went on for hours.
In another instance, a woman who had been raped pleaded for help from a passer-by, only to be told: “I’m going to do
the same thing to you.”
Many accident victims die on the roads as no one helps out or even calls for help.
When human heart can grow so cold to fellow human beings, what concern it could possibly show to other living
creatures. No wonder, the planet has turned into a giant meat grinder and the animals are being treated in the most
horrific ways you can imagine.
Robert Tizon says, “I would rather have eyes that cannot see; ears that cannot hear; lips that cannot speak, than a
heart that cannot love”
The world has lost its heart and it needs to search it out.

Working Moms And The Rise of A Lost Generation

An article in The Economist, Female Power: Women in the Workforce, states, “The economic empowerment of
women across the rich world is one of the most remarkable revolutions of the past 50 years.” Women all over the
world have entered the workforce in record numbers.
Despite women’s greater participation in the workforce, most men have yet to increase their share of domestic duties.
This means that the majority of working mothers are also responsible for housework and looking after their children.
Being a ‘devoted mother’ is not easy. It is more than a full-time job. A full-time job lasts only for 8 or 9 hours whereas
a mother’s job lasts 24 hours, 7 days a week. There are no holidays or leaves. But of late, this most important job is
becoming the least valued job.
In a new book, The Price of Motherhood: Why the Most Important Job in the World is Still the Least Valued, author
Ann Crittenden looks at how a lack of social supports for modern moms forces them to make bitter choices
Crittenden’s research shows that despite the overall advancement of women, mothers’ work remains unappreciated
in an economic sense, even though moms are cultivating “human capital.” Raising productive citizens directly
contributes to the overall health of the economy and wealth of the society.
But in our modern culture, “mothering” is substantially, but not uniquely, a woman’s role.
According to Prof Kerryn Phelps, the traditional notion of the family has been expanded beyond the restricted
definition of a nuclear biological family to include step-families, blended families, single parents, gay parents,
international adoption and surrogacy.
It is not a rocket science. What children need in order to flourish is a safe, loving home environment. And central to
that is the mother of all roles: mothering.
When this role is neglected, even to the slightest degree, you end up with a ‘feral generation’, a generation of violent,
illiterate young men who live outside the boundaries of civilised society and who pose a threat to the established
social order. Even the government has no idea how to deal with them. The world’s cities are overun by this class, jails
are bursting at the seams and nobody has any clue on how to fix this problem.
A good place to start would be home.

Animals Have A Soul - Just As Humans Do

Some one asked a question on Catholic.com, “Do animals have souls like human beings?”
Their answer is as follows. “The soul is the principle of life. Since animals and plants are living things, they have
souls, but not in the sense in which human beings have souls. Our souls are rational--theirs aren’t--and ours are
rational because they’re spiritual, not material. Animals and plants also lack a moral sense. Animal and vegetable
souls are dependent entirely on matter for their operation and being. They cease to exist at death. We know human
souls are spiritual since humans can know and love.”
Srila Prabhupada, the founder of the Hare Krishna movement clarifies this flawed contention in the following
discussion with a disciple:
Prabhupada: Animals are also rational. If a dog enters my room, and I say, “Out!” the dog immediately understands
and goes away. How can we say that there is no rationality at work? If I place my finger before an ant, that ant will
turn away immediately. If you give a cow meat, the cow will not touch it. The cow understands that its food consists of
grasses and grains. Animals have rationality, but one aspect of rationality is lacking: an animal cannot think of God.
This is the main difference between animals and men. A man’s rationality is so developed that he can think of God,
whereas an animal cannot. But we should not think that the souls of animals are not immortal. This theory has given
the Christians a basis for killing animals, but they cannot prove that an animal’s soul is irrational or mortal. A man
eats, sleeps, defends, and mates, and an animal does the same. So what is the difference?”
Disciple: Perhaps the difference is one of mental activity. A man has the capacity to think in a more complicated way.
Prabhupada: But mental activity means accepting and rejecting. Animals also accept and reject; therefore they have
mental activity.
It is also the Vedic conclusion [sarva-yonisu] that the living soul, which is part and parcel of God, is present in all
different life species. Those who are foolish think the animal has no soul, but there is no rational basis for this belief.
An animal may be less intelligent than a man, just as a child may be less intelligent than his father, but this does not
mean that no soul is present. This type of mentality is ruining civilization. People have become so degraded that they
even think that an embryo has no soul. (Dialectic Spiritualism)
Thus we see that religion plays an important role in shaping our attitude towards the natural world. In general,
Christianity, and Western civilization as a whole, according to Professor Lynn White, Jr., held a view of nature that
separated humans from the rest of the natural world, and encouraged exploitation of it for our own ends.

Cow Ghee - The Food of The Gods


According to a study published in The Lancet, we are living in a sick world. Over 95% of the world population has
health problems, with over a third having more than five ailments. Just one in 20 people worldwide (4·3%) had no
health problems in 2013.
The findings come from the largest and most detailed analysis to quantify levels, patterns, and trends in ill health and
disability around the world between 1990 and 2013.
Happiness lies first of all in good health. Failing on health front means we fail on every other front.
Here is the cause of our downfall. We think we are too smart and so we have thrown the traditional knowledge out the
window. But if we are so smart, why do we find ourselves in such a terrible predicament today? Our species is facing
a barrage of extraordinary and complex problems for which we have no feasible solutions.
The irony is that these problems exist because our cleverness, our being so smart, created them. Our activities,
clever as we have thought them to be, are the causes of the problems, which, collectively, threaten the very existence
of humanity! Irony is, we are only smart enough to create the problems, but we’re not smart enough to fix them.
Some one has rightly said, “In the end, cockroaches would prove to be more intelligent than humans if humans
destroy themselves. Intelligence is really a survival skill for the entire species and that which survives proves
intelligent on a species level.”
Our greatest failings have been in the area of food and health. This is because, out of arrogance, we have chosen to
ignore the collective wisdom of countless generations. Instead, we have chosen to follow the fallible wisdom of
modern doctors and unscrupulous food companies. We have reposed our trust in nutritionists, supplement makers
and celebrities, rather than our moms and grandmoms.
This book discusses the vital role of ghee or clarified butter in maintaining the health and vitality of the human race.
Only recently we have ‘discovered’ that dairy fats are bad for us. But for thousands of years, countless civilizations
have survived on them. Civilizations tends to get rid of foods that are harmful, and that the dairy fats made it through
these civilizations, conveys some truth in the matter.

Farmers Are A Dying Breed

Every 5 years the United States Department of Agriculture sends all the farmers a survey called the Agricultural
Census. And every five years once all the results are tallied and without fail, an alarm bell goes off. The national
average age in farming keeps climbing up and the trend is ever upward. Farmers around the world are getting old.
Where have all the young farmers gone? Why the youngsters are leaving the family farms and showing no interest in
what’s supposed to be the oldest and the ‘noblest’ profession?
This is because small scale agriculture is being deliberately stifled. Pro-corporate policies are making farming non-
viable and farmers are left with no other choice but to quit. Farmers are a dying breed and family farming will become
history soon.
Writing in the Newsweek magazine (April 10, 2014), Max Kutner says:”For decades, farmers across the country have
been dying by suicide at higher rates than the general population. The exact numbers are hard to determine, mainly
because suicide by farmers are under-reported (they may get mislabeled as hunting or tractor accidents, advocates
for prevention say) and because the exact definition of a farmer is elusive.”
A society disconnected from its food source can never know peace, prosperity and good health. Aldo Leopold warns,
“There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the
grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.”

Food Fascism - Corporate Control of Our Food Supply

Henry Kissinger, the former US national security adviser and secretary of state says, “Control oil and you control
nations; control food and you control the people.”
Food fascism is all about controlling the food supply and thereby controlling the people. The vested interests get to
decide who eats and who starves.
US strategy in last few decades has deliberately destroyed family farming in the US and abroad and led to 95% of all
grain reserves in the world coming under the control of six multinational agribusiness corporations.
As the family farms drop off the radar, these agribusiness corporations have come to control our food supply. The
family farms are associated with the values of conservation, independence, self-reliance, family, and community and
these agribusinesses are here to destroy these values. They exist for sheer profiteering and nothing else matters to
them.
Before the first supermarket appeared on the American landscape in 1946, our food was in our homes, gardens, local
fields, and forests. Now this is all a history. Growing your own food or preserving your own seeds is becoming a
criminal offense. Most US cities are making it illegal to hand out food to the homeless. In Florida, a 90 year old
veteran was arrested for feeding the homeless.
This isn’t normal. For a healthier and a better world, we need to get back to the land, back to our freedom. Our
freedom begins with food freedom. As Fukuoka says, “The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but
the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

You Are What You Grow - Produce Your Own Food

We are Humans. We Grow Food. Growing food is a sign of civilized life. Development of agriculture closely follows
the development of civilization. Agriculture is our first big step toward a civilized life. Therefore Daniel Webster says,
“When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.”
Eating is an agricultural act. No factory can ever produce a blade of grass. Farming is not just another job, it’s a way
of life. And it’s been that way since the beginning of time. All the previous civilizations were connected to their food
source.
Two centuries ago we took the wrong turn. The onset of industrial revolution fundamentally altered the way we lived,
worked, and related to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation was unlike anything
humankind had experienced before. Today the world is a big fat stinking mess, ready to go down any time.
All this ‘progress’ of last two centuries has dramatically changed our food choices and eating habits. We graze our
way through the day, that too often on the run. And what we eat is actually killing us. Industrial food is a poison on the
platter. And GMO is the icing on the cake.
It’s time to grow what you can, with what you have, wherever you are.
Live. Laugh. Farm. Here lies your and the planet’s destiny.

Just Like Children - Innocent, Helpless And Defenseless

Ancient Indian view on animals is succinctly presented in Srimad Bhagavatam, an ancient Vedic text. It is said
therein:
mrgostra-khara-markakhu-
sarisrp khaga-maksikah
atmanah putravat pasyet
tair esam antaram kiyat
One should treat animals such as deer, camels, asses, monkeys, mice, snakes, birds and flies exactly like one’s own
son. How little difference there actually is between children and these innocent animals. (Srimad Bhagavatam -
7.14.9)
By this statement, one can imagine how broad minded the Vedic civilization was and how much it was concerned
with the well-being of all living entities. This is the Vedic world view, commonly known as the peaceable kingdom. If
we have dominion over animals, surely it is to protect them, not to abuse them for our own ends. Our dominion over
animals is exactly like the loving parents’ dominion over their children.
“The baby is an animal,” wrote one mid-nineteenth-century author, “and the child’s devotion on the whole is to its
body.” It is normal for children to want to run, scream, and pay, and in the words of the parenting manual author
George Ackerly, “every effort to restrain them in their youthful gambols is as unnatural as it would be to confine the
deer in the midst of the forest.”
This association of animals with children (and children with animals) is not new. Throughout the history, children were
regarded as not culpable for crimes, a position later adopted by one and all. Today, in many countries like Canada
and the United States, children below twelve are not held responsible for their actions. Only children twelve and older
may be sent to special correctional institutions, such as juvenile hall. Children enjoy this privilege because they
possess innocence. Animals also possess this very same attribute and it reflects in their eyes.
Today, animals are innocent sufferers in a hell of our making.

Have Mercy - We Have Feelings Too


Lack of empathy, guilt or remorse are the hallmark traits of the common man today. It means that they can do
practically anything, and then act as if nothing as happened. Lack of empathy is the most telling narcissistic trait you
can easily find in the people around you. According to a new research, young people today are significantly more
narcissistic than during the 1980s and 1990s. We are in the middle of a narcissism epidemic.
The narcissist lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others. “Narcissists
do not consider the pain they inflict on others; nor do they give any credence to others’ perceptions,” says Dr. Les
Carter in the book Enough of You, Let’s Talk About Me. “They simply do not care about thoughts and feelings that
conflict with their own.” Do not expect them to listen, validate, understand, or support you.
Professor Twenge and Campbell analysed data from 15,000 American college students who responded to the
Narcissistic Personality survey in 2006. They found that there was a relationship between the birth year of the people
filling out the scale and their narcissism score, and those narcissism scores were significantly higher in the 2000s
than they were in the 1980s and 1990s.
This state of mind gets reflected in our dealings, not only with each other, but with our natural world as well. We are
we living in an increasingly violent society and violence against animals is on the rise. Animal abusers don’t always
stop there — they hurt people too
Horrific examples of cruelty to animals include a rabbit dying in agony after being microwaved and a cat who had
been run over die after being kicked like a football by a passer-by instead of being helped.
Our society is headed for self destruction if we don’t work on preserving its moral and ethical foundation.

Cow Milk - Nature's Most Perfect Food

Milk is one of our most ancient foods. It is also one of the most controversial ones. This controversy is a recent
phenomenon. It stems from our disregard for animal rights and the impact of processed milk on human health.
Opponents of milk are right when they point out the abuse of dairy cows and the extreme processing the milk
undergoes.
At one time, milk was one of the more natural processes in farming. A bull would impregnate a cow — an actual bull,
before the age of artificial insemination . She was pregnant for nine months and then a baby cow was born.
Afterwards, from the calf’s birth, the farmer would milk the excess dairy by hand, for drinking, butter and maybe
cheese. That’s it. But with the rise of factory farming, milk is now a most unnatural operation. Today’s average dairy
cow produces six to seven times as much milk as she did a century ago.
Should we blame the milk or ourselves for this mess?
And our mishandling of food is not confined to milk alone. Most of our food now is industrially farmed and processed.
Industrialization has destroyed our food.
And the result is not very difficult to perceive. According to a study published in The Lancet, we are living in a sick
world. More than 95% of us are ill. Over 95% of us have health problems, with over a third having more than five
ailments. Just one in 20 people worldwide (4·3%) had no health problems in 2013.
The findings come from the largest and most detailed analysis to quantify levels, patterns, and trends in ill health and
disability around the world between 1990 and 2013.
Happiness lies first of all in health. Failing on health front means we fail on every other front. A thing is judged by the
result. All our technological, scientific advancement and all the talk of development is hogwash. Because it’s killing us
and it’s killing the planet.
We have no idea what we’re doing. Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. Life is only as
complicated as we make it and it’s so easy to make life complicated.
What has worked for countless generations will work for us also. There is hardly any need to reinvent the wheel.
Let us get back to good ol’ milk. Milk has always stood for motherhood and for life.

Peak Soil - Industrial Civilization on The Verge of Eating Itself

The foundation of any civilization is adequate availability of food and water. So anyone with common sense would
think the top priority of nations throughout history would be taking good care of the land.
Apparently not — the decline of most civilizations is due in large part to soil degradation and erosion. Common sense
is very uncommon. In his book, Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations, David R. Montgomery discusses past civilizations
around the globe, which typically last a few centuries before ruining their soil.
Our present-day civilization is following in the footsteps of it’s predecessors. Only difference is here everything is
global. All the previous calamities were local in nature. The world today shares a common fate, thanks to
interdependence and interconnectivity. Earlier we suffered in isolation and now we go down, all together.
Soil is a finite and non-renewable resource, meaning its loss and degradation is not recoverable within a human
lifespan. Despite the fact that soil can be formed by weathering it is considered a non-renewable resource because
the process of formation of soil is a very slow process. The estimated global average rate of soil formation is about
400 years for each centimeter of soil. But for us, it takes only a couple of decades to ruin a landscape completely.
UN FAO estimates that ‘today, 33 percent of land is moderately to highly degraded due to the erosion, salinization,
compaction, acidification and chemical pollution of soils.’
Foundation of our civilization is eroding while we are caught-up in the non-essentials. The leaders are also too busy
putting out proverbial fires, to see the point.

Forget Climate Change - It's Time To Worry About Soil


Change

Two millenniums ago, a great fire ravaged Rome for six days, destroying 70 percent of the city and leaving half its
population homeless. Rome’s emperor at the time, Nero ‘fiddled while Rome burned’.
Today the world is on fire and we, the modern day Neros, are busy fiddling. We are too caught up in frivolity to see
the existential challenges staring us in the face. For example, climate change is for real and it’s coming around faster
than you think, as proven by the catastrophic events all over the world. But it has become a cliche before it has even
been understood.
While we are busy merrymaking, another silent global crisis is creeping up on us. It is called soil degradation. In the
past 40 years alone, 30 percent of the planet’s arable land has become unproductive due to erosion. At current
estimates, nearly all of the remaining 11 billion acres of cropland and grazing land suffer from some degree of
erosion.
“We are overlooking soil as the foundation of all life on Earth,” says Andres Arnalds, assistant director of the Icelandic
Soil Conservation Service.
Essentially, all life depends upon the soil. Some one has rightly put it, “Despite all our achievements we owe our
existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Soul Killing Jobs of Modern Civilization

Keynes, the father of modern economics predicted in 1930, “In the future, working hours would be short and
vacations long. Our grandchildren would work around three hours a day—and probably only by choice.” Economic
progress and technological advances had already shrunk working hours considerably by his day, and there was no
reason to believe this trend would not continue. Faster cars and planes were taking us places and modern appliances
were reducing drudgery in the home and the office. Concern was being raised in social circles: what are we going to
do with all the free time in the future?
And here we are, in the 21st century, afflicted with a ‘perennial time-scarcity problem’. And the matter is growing
more acute with every passing day. We have never worked so hard, for so long and for so little. Technology hasn’t
made life any easier at all. Workers are finding themselves under more pressure than ever before. People are living
to work and not working to live.
Masanobu Fukuoka has raised this concern in his book ‘The One-Straw Revolution’, “I do not particularly like the
word ‘work.’ Human beings are the only animals who have to work, and I think that is the most ridiculous thing in the
world. Other animals make their livings by living, but people work like crazy, thinking that they have to in order to stay
alive. The bigger the job, the greater the challenge, the more wonderful they think it is. It would be good to give up
that way of thinking and live an easy, comfortable life with plenty of free time. I think that the way animals live in the
tropics, stepping outside in the morning and evening to see if there is something to eat, and taking a long nap in the
afternoon, must be a wonderful life. For human beings, a life of such simplicity would be possible if one worked to
produce directly his daily necessities. In such a life, work is not work as people generally think of it, but simply doing
what needs to be done.”

True Equality, Fraternity And Universal Love


M

odern nations are founded on the principles of justice, fairness, equality, and individual freedom of religion and
speech, among others. According to the founding fathers of America, unalienable rights are those which God gave to
man at the Creation, once and for all. By definition, since God granted such rights, governments could not take them
away. In America, this fundamental truth is recognized and enshrined in the nation’s birth certificate, the Declaration
of Independence:
“All men are created equal...[and] are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
According to the Founders, unalienable rights belong to each person by virtue of the fact that man is made in God’s
image, and is therefore endowed with certain attributes, powers, freedoms, and legal protections as part of his
essence. These rights are thus inseparable -- or unalienable -- from each person individually and from the human
race in general. They are a gift from the Creator and it is impossible for government to alter or nullify mankind’s divine
inheritance.
The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson, a slaveholder, and what he really meant was that
all rich, white, land owning males are created equal, and guaranteed to the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness.
To the slave, in America, the celebration of freedom was absent. There was no liberation. There was no release from
the oppression that they were dealt with. There was no reason to celebrate the Fourth of July like any other white
American would, because it meant nothing to them. Frederick Douglass wrote about this in his What to the Slave Is
the Fourth of July?
Of all the contradictions in America’s history, none surpasses its toleration first of slavery and then of segregation.
Meting out of this injustice came to be known as racism which is the belief that a particular race is superior or inferior
to another. Speciesism, an offshoot of racism, is a prejudice or bias in favour of the interests of members of one’s
own species and against those of members of other species. Speciesism is the idea that being human is a good
enough reason for human animals to have greater moral rights than non-human animals.
According to Peter Singer, If we were to compare attitudes about speciesism today with past racist attitudes, we
would have to say that we are back in the days in which the slave trade was still legal.
Our struggle for freedom is not complete until we recognize the unalienable rights of non-human animals in our
constitution. Srila Prabhupada, the founder of the Hare Krishna movement says:
A cow is born in America, and a gentleman is born in America, but the state takes care of the gentleman, not of the
cows. They say “national,” “nationality.” Why nationality is refused to the animals? Just like few days or few years ago
the nationality was also awarded to the black man. This is nice. Why one section of humanity should be denied
nationality? That was very nice. National means the living entity born in that land... That is natural. If a child, even of
an Indian, is born in your country he immediately gets the citizenship. That is the law. So the conclusion is that
anyone who is born in this land, he gets nationality. But why we should refuse nationality to the poor
animals? (Lecture -- July 16, 1971, Detroit)
