Viable solutions or action steps

The entire world is on a most dangerous course that is creating hellish

For example, everyone can and should boycott the use milk produced from
non-protected cows. That milk is murder. That means that, unless we can get
raw milk from your local goshala where mother cow will be protected until
the end of her natural life, we should adopt a Vegan diet. And to think that
we can continue to indulge in the by-products of murderous activities
without consequences is fooling ourselves. If you question that last
statement, I invite you to watch the documentary "Earthlings" at the

We can also work on forming devotional self-sufficient communities one
function of which is to teach the world about the abundantly satisfying life
founded on cow protection.
