Dear Divine Souls, This book on vegetarianism has beenprepared as an offering, an offering to the values of peace,non-violence, compassion and environmental preservation.In today’s day and age, we are faced daily with vivid anddisturbing news reports of starvation, of environmentaldestruction, of global warming, of irreversible pollution andof the untold suffering of billions of our brothers and sis-ters around the world.In 1996, the United Nations prepared a report titled“Livestock’s Long Shadow” in which it made a clear andconvincing case that in order to minimize global warming  we should focus less on our minimal contributions throughour cars and water usage and more on our enormous contri-bution through the food we eat.It is becoming clearer that vegetarianism is one of the mainand irrefutable aspects of living a dharmic life -- regardlessof our religious or cultural backgrounds.

I believe, fervently, that the human race is made up of goodpeople who want to lead good lives. The mistakes we makeare usually made due to ignorance and confusion. If thatignorance and confusion can be eliminated, I believe that --in general -- humans will make choices for the betterment of not only themselves but of the planet and their fellow broth-ers and sisters.I pray that this book may serve as a guide for eliminating any ignorance and confusion regarding the truly crucial role ourfood choices play in the preservation of our species and ourplanet. With love and blessings to you all.In the service of God and humanity,Swami Chidanand Saraswati
