In the company of the Jain dewans, the rulers of Rajasthan also respected the practice of the Jain religion to show mercy and kindness towards the animals they also used to undertake renovation of...Posted on 02.11.2012 by John DavisJuly 27, 2011 The Truth Tester was first published in England in 1845, as a temperance (anti-alcohol) journal. In August 1846 a new editor, William Horsell, based near London, took over and incorporated 'The Healthian', first published in 1842 by the strictly vegan Alcott House Academy. In his first introduction to the combined journal the new editor stated it would advocate "...entire abandonment of alcoholic...Posted on 01.11.2012 by Dr. Kumarpal DesaiSonal There are four steps to practise tru e religion: daan (charity), tap (penance), sheel (purity of character) and bhaav (good intention). Out of these, sheel is considered an ornament of soul. Jainism stresses the importance of sheel not only for Sadhus but even for the householders. It is said that Emperor Akbar was impressed by the impeccable character (sheel) of Sonal, the wife of one of his courtiers...Posted on 01.11.2012 by John DavisApril 20, 2011 In a poll of British doctors in 2003 John Snow was voted as the greatest physician of all time. Though probably few of them would have known he was what we now call vegan. He grew up in the North-East of England, always a tough area of the country, and still not the easiest place to be vegan today. But Snow was born almost 200 years ago, and at the age of 17, in 1830, with no apparent support from...Posted on 31.10.2012 by Dr. Kumarpal DesaiChampa People of the country were extremely terrified by the oppression of the emperors of Delhi during the last three hundred years. But as the emperor Akbar occupied the throne of Delhi, there was a great sigh of relief and there was a new ray of hope among the people. Akbar was keen to know about various religions. Knowing their fundamental principles, he respected and honored all the religions. He tried to...Posted on 31.10.2012 by John DavisMarch 30, 2011 Oh no, not another -ism... Well, everyone else is inventing words... by plantism I mean eating only plants - and ideally wearing plants, growing your own plants for food and conserving plant habitats for other species - vegan self-sufficient environmentalism if you like. And plantists do have roots - in the historical sense that is. There have probably always been some people doing all this, but...Posted on 30.10.2012 by Dr. Kumarpal DesaiBalashamata Balasha was a young, devout man who lived in a hamlet near Ujjain, the city known for valour, scholarship and religious devotion of its people. Balasha was devoted to his mother. He used to help his mother in the household work and would also accompany her on pilgrimages. Once he went to Ujjain. He saw many big shops selling a variety of goods. He knew that his mother slept on floor and therefore he...Posted on 30.10.2012 by John DavisMarch 22, 2011 Amos Bronson Alcott was an abolitionist vegan in a way that few today are emulating - in the 1830s he was taking a stand against human slavery in the USA. In some parts of the world human slavery is still very much with us of course, and I'd hope that modern day 'abolitionist vegans' are just as active in campaigning against that too. Bronson also argued for women's rights even, for a while at...Posted on 29.10.2012 by Dr. Kumarpal DesaiAnupamadevi Anupama was Tejpal’s wife. Her complexion was dark and even her body was not that beautiful but she possessed extraordinary intelligence. She showed uncommon common-sense in solving complicated problems not only of the family but those of others as well. Tejpal and Anupamadevi both were devoted to religion and as such, the ascetics were ever worshipped w ith great respect by them. Once Anupamadevi...Posted on 29.10.2012 by John DavisJuly 7, 2010 The first people who called themselves 'vegetarian' were in fact vegan. This has now been established conclusively with resources not previously available. We have now shown that until 1847 *all* uses the word 'vegetarian' came from people associated with Alcott House School, on Ham Common, south west of London. And they used it to mean a 100% plant food diet - a 'vegetarian' was simply someone who...P osted on 28.10.2012 by Dr. Kumarpal DesaiChaampalde Bhimdev was the king of Gujarat. He was so kind that people often cheated him. Very often some people would poison his ears against others and get their work done. Abhad Vasa lived in Patan. He sacked his accountant as he was very dishonest and used to temper with the accounts and misappropriate money. The accountant wanted to avenge his dismissal and thought of a plan. He went to the king and said:...Posted on 28.10.2012 by John DavisMarch 7, 2012 We now know that the people closely con nected with the Alcott House Academy, near London, were the first to call themselves 'vegetarian'. This is how the school began. James Pierrepont Greaves (right) was born in 1777, and for his first 40 years he did nothing of any great interest to us. He ran the family drapery business in London, but in 1815 it was bankrupted by trading problems during the...Posted on 27.10.2012 by Dr. Kumarpal DesaiLacchidevi Bhakti (devotion) is something which is more valuable than any other possession one will like to have. The five kartavya (commandments) of Paryushan and the annual eleven kartavya of a shravak also emphasise the importance of bhakti. Lacchidevi is a shining example of devotion to religi on. Lacchi Chhipan (Laxmi Bhavsar), wife of Tribhuvansinh of Karnavati, was on her way to the temple, attended by...Posted on 27.10.2012 by John DavisApril 5, 2011 Dr. William Lambe FRCP (1765-1847) Back in 1815, in London, Dr William Lambe, Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP), published his Water and Vegetable Diet' in which he stated: "My reason for objecting to every species of matter to be used as food, except the direct produce of the earth, is founded on the broad ground that no other matter is suited to the organs of man. This applies...Posted on 26.10.2012 by Dr. Kumarpal DesaiBakuladevi Bakuladevi! An exceptional woman whose name shines like a bright star in the history of Gujarat. Like a lotus, which remains unaffected by the mud around, she grew up, in the midst of luxuries and lust, to be a highly pious, virtuous and righteous woman. Blessed with incomparable beauty, she was the daughter of a courtesan. It was not that she was blessed only with external beauty, but her inner...Posted on 26.10.2012 by John DavisDecember 20,2011 Lewis Gompertz (1783/4-1861) appears on the scene in 1824, at the age of 40, as the author of a significant book promoting an early prototype of what we now call animal rights and veganism; and in the same year he was a co-founder of the world's first Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA, later RSPCA). His 1824 book 'Moral Inquiries: on the situation of man and of brutes' was...Posted on 26.10.2012 by John DavisFebruary 29, 2012 In 1850 a British vegetarian, living in India, wrote to a journal in England mentioning that his diet included 'Graham bread'. Such was the worldwide fame that the American Sylvester Graham had achieved in his promotion of whole-wheat brown flour, to replace the refined white flour that had become common by the early 19th century. Most Americans today are familiar with 'Graham crackers',...
