What is Ahimsa? Yoga. Step 1. Compassion. Connection. Ahimsa.

Many people in the USA view yoga as a bunch of postures and breathing methods. So, this is Hatha Yoga – created to invite the human league to lean in closer and discover the yogas to enlightenment: Raja, Bhakti, Karma and Jnana Yoga.

Actually, all yoga has the common ground of knowledge/philosophy. All yoga incorporates the Yamas and the Niyamas. All Yoga starts with Ahimsa.

Ahimsa is

But Chicken is Ok, Right?

Generally Chickens enter the world on a metal shelf at a hatchery surrounded by thousands of other chicks. So, On their 1st day of life they are unable to see the sunlight or feel the earth beneath their tiny feet. Naturally, they open their eyes and all they are able to see is darkness. On their second day of life baby chicks are shuttled along a conveyor belt of death where they are quickly sorted in a way that is completely devoid of any kind of emotion. Treated as commodities rather than living creatures, the female chicks are placed on one belt and the male chicks are placed on another, each leading to their own deaths – one, a relatively quick death, and the other, long and drawn out. All while chirping for their mothers.

Milk Comes From A Grieving Mother.....

Still, there is no other species on the face of this planet that drinks milk past infancy from an animal of a different species than their own. Generally, Cows produce milk for the same reasons humans produce milk. Therefore, Cows must give birth in order to produce milk.
But in order to give birth a cow must first be pregnant, and in order for a cow to become pregnant, she must be impregnated by a device known as a rape rack.
The first time I witnessed the sound of the mother cow grieving for her babies (males are dumped in a trash pile and females are immediately removed so they don't drink "your milk") I literally fell to the ground and started grieving too.
