Tirukkural 256: Abstinence from Flesh

If the world does not destroy life for the purpose of eating, then no one would sell flesh for the sake of money.

Become a spiritual being. That is your goal, your liberation, for as the years go by you can live in heaven, or you can live in your own self-created hell, and you don't want to do that. Think about it and create a heaven right now by living with Siva.
