What's a Vegan?


"Much more than a diet, veganism is a way of being, an ethical commitment,
which recognizes the equality and interconnectedness of all life."
- Doug Hines


Veganism is one thing, and one thing only.
[It is] a way of living which avoids exploitation,
whether it be of our fellow man, of the animal population,
or of the soil upon which we all rely for our very existence." 
- Eva Batt


"The contemporary vegan movement is founded on loving-kindness and mindfulness of our effects on others. It is revolutionary because it transcends and renounces the violent core of the herding culture in which we live. It is founded on living the truth of interconnectedness and thereby consciously minimizing the suffering we impose on animals, humans, and biosystems; it frees us all from the slavery of becoming mere commodities. It signifies the birth of  new consciousness, the resurrection of intelligence and compassion, and the basic reject of crulelty and domination. It is our only real hope for the future of our species because it addresses the cause rather than being concerned merely with effects. From this new consciousness we can accomplish virtually anything; it represents the fundamental positive personal and cultural transformation that we yearn for, and it requires that we change something basic: our eating habits." - Will Tuttle, Ph.D.  The World Peace Diet

"...'man's inhumanity to man' is rooted in our inhumanity to animals." - Will Tuttle, Ph.D.  The World Peace Diet

The very symbol of
human ignorance.
Being a Vegan is so much more than a diet.  It's a way of being.
Find out more below.







How can you possibly love a dog, cat, parakeet or goldfish, etc.,
and then go out and eat a chicken, egg, turkey, cow, pig, sheep, goat or fish etc.?

Just where, in your mind, do you make the distinction
between these living animals and why?






Contemplate what it would take to manifest a quantum-leap
forward in our development as human beings.

How do we define our relationship with other life forms?
Do we define other life forms as property or as partners?
Do we have any inherent 'right' to assign such a definition at all?

The way in which we interact with non-humans is
vitally important to our ultimate success as humans.
Embracing a partnered way-of-being with animals
is the very key to human transformation.

Please reconsider your relationship with animals.

- Doug Hines




- The Moment -

"The moment that we stop shaking our heads in denial
that we have been complicit in the suffering and deaths
of other sentient beings is the moment when we will
enter a new era of living in a fundamentally ethical world.
Begin today to live without killing animals."
- Doug Hines




Become a humane being.

Animals Have A Deep Capacity For Love
A true story about a lion expressing love and affection:


Christian the Lion shows his to love to his owners John Rendall and Ace Bourke.
They had to let go of the Lion into the wild to Nairobi, Kenya. After many years, 
they went to visit Christian to see if he still remembers them. The reunion was so 
touching, Christian still gave them the same lion hugs ever before! This video was 
created for the benefit of the BORN FREE FOUNDATION.

Animals Have A Deep Capacity For Love
A true story about a gorilla expressing love and affection:


    The Aspinall Foundation is a charity that promotes wildlife conservation and 
    reintroduces captive gorillas back into the wild in West Africa. Five years ago, 
    conservationist Damian Aspinall released a gorilla, Kwibi, into the jungles of 
    Gabon. Aspinall returned recently to reunite with a now ten-year-old Kwibi.

IT'S WORTH REPEATING:

The companies which perpetrate abuse on animals only do so because you buy their products. Your actions, therefore, are the ultimate underlying cause of this situation.


"Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery,
I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally."
-Abraham Lincoln
