I am determined not to kill, not to let others kill, and not to support any act of killing in the world…
– Renowned Vegan Monk, Thich Nhat Hanh
Our greatest evil currently is that every day we are involved in a feud with animals, such as killing and consuming fish, shrimp, crab, etc…on a daily basis. It is only when we fall ill one day or when we are grieving for our own ill or dying child do we realize the pain that animals endure.
—Venerable Master Hai Tao of Taiwan, renowned Buddhist monk, worldwide vegan advocate, and strong supporter of DVA
