dear friends

the basic problem here is the following.

ahimsa is a feeling of heart. if a person feels that he is
hurting a plant or an animal, it is his heart that is speaking
and not his brain. no amount of reference to shasthras and 
evidence from scriptures can give a convincing arguement against
a heart felt sympathy for plants and animals. 

thus, if i have no such (heart felt) feeling for plants or animals,
all i should do is to pray god to give me that kind heart so that
here after i will love them more. 

with regards
narasimha
