A new feature of the Global Dharma pages is coverage of a famous vegetarian or vegan in each issue. The July issue briefly shares the life and times of Jane Goodall, famous for her early research on chimpanzees. Late in her career she discovered the horrors of factory farming and became a vegetarian. At the age of 78, she is going strong as the leader in a movement to teach and engage youth in fixing earth’s environmental problems. She shows it’s never too late to keep on working for dharma.
One Response to “Jane Goodall Works for the Planet”
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
