Rudraksha and Ahimsa


Today we include two short answers to questions relating to ahimsa, nonhurtfulness. The first is from an admitted meat eater who wonders if it is alright for him to wear rudraksha beads. The second is from a remorseful e-devotee who killed a spider. He would like to know how to atone.

The Gods of Hinduism create, preserve and protect mankind. It is through their sanction that all things continue, and through their will that they cease. It is through their grace that all good things happen, and all things that happen are for the good.
