Why should you be a Vegetarian?

By Satyanarayana Dasa: Twenty five years ago, while living in America, I once visited a friend for a few days. His son, who was about 11 years old, had a pet parrot.

    I have observed two paradoxes about love:
    1. If you love someone intensely that person becomes afraid of losing his/her independence.
