World Spiritual Leaders Gather for COP16
“The deeper understanding of interconnection is to know that all that is comes from a single source. To harm one part is to harm the whole. By knowing this we will naturally create a more conscious and caring way of living on the earth.”
As a part of our Environment Initiative, the Brahma Kumaris are exploring the connection between the consciousness of the individual and the collective effect on the state of the planet. Our consciousness determines the values by which we live. Our values form the basis of our actions which in turn determine whether or not they contribute to the protection and sustainability of the environment.
Vegetarian Food & Environment
There are many reasons that people decide vegetarianism is the best lifestyle choice for them. Some people do not eat meat because of religious, spiritual or ethical reasons, others adopt vegetarianism for health related concerns and still others choose vegetarianism as a means of supporting the environment.
