Dear all, Namaskarams. >Those who oppose the use of silk for bhagavatharadhanai >on Ahimsa grounds, would they also oppose the use of >allopathic medicine and treatment, and cosmetic products >such as after-shave lotion? > >-- Dileepan Yes. adiyEn will definitely stand the same ground with regard to use of modern medicines, cosmetic pdts., leather goods etc. As a weak soul I have not so far shunned whole heartedly the allopathic medicines which I think is my immaturity. And adiyEn used to avoid milk when in US since I came to know that for meeting a Government standard on percentage of Vit.D in milk, milk-producers add fish products to milk. And adiyEn never use silk. [ I read in a magazine how badly animals like monkeys, mice are tortured for the sake of human beauty. Throughout the world many cosmetics product manufacturers perform various mind-rending experiments on these innocent creatures. All for just the external beauty of the humans. Pathetic state of affair! ] adiyEn, chandrasekaran.
