Dear Bhagavathas,
In view of Sri K. Srinivasan's recent nice posting enumerating
"a thousand reasons for being a vegetarian", may i please note
a sloka from Srimad Bhagavad Geeta, wherein Sri Krishna Paramatma says:-
  "Bhoktaram yajna tapasAm,
    Sarva lOka Maheshvaram,
    **Suhrdam sarva bhootAnAm**
    jnatva mAm Santim rchhati"
(hope the words are OK). The implication is that ALL CREATURES, not
just human beings, are the objects of His Friendship. 

                       OM NAMO NARAYANA
Thank you,
Srikanth
