Activists join hands for compassionate living – The Times of India

His Holiness, the XIV Dalai Lama, launched the first-ever World Compassion Day at an event in Mumbai on Wednesday. The programme was organized by the animal rights group Humane Society International (HSI) and Pritish Nandy Communications.

Urging the packed audience that comprised filmstars, animal activists and industrialists to try their best to shun meat and other non-vegetarian foods, Dalai Lama said: “A vegetarian diet is the most healthy one for you. We must respect all forms of life.”
