“No Faith In War”

Saturday, 07 September 2019 / Published in Recent Media / 470 views




Parasurama das: Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Quaker, Sikh, Hare Krishna, yogis, people of all faiths and none have been gathering at The Arms Fair at London’s Excel Centre all week to call for an end to the DSEI arms fair and all profiting from war. “We will use our faith traditions, practices and rituals to express our sorrow and horror at the arms fair, standing in solidarity with each other and those affected by weapons sales. We will stand against the opponents of peace using our prayers, words and action with a day of non-violent protest.” was the theme, so we wrote a song for it:

Many young people now see the parallels between war and the meat industry. Thus there is an urgent need to distribute Bhagavad Gita, and an excellent opportunity to distribute Prasad.

For the month of October, we will be cooking and distributing 20,000 plates of delicious Prasad daily to the Eco Activists in London. These young people are passionate about seeking solutions to the problems of the world, just as in the sixties and seventies the hippie generation were looking outside of the box.

Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and
who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to
destroy the world.

PURPORT

Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world. PURPORT The demoniac are engaged in activities that will lead the world to destruction. The Lord states here that they are less intelligent. The materialists, who have no concept of God, think that they are advancing. But, according to Bhagavad-gita, they are unintelligent and devoid of all sense. They try to enjoy this material world to the utmost limit and therefore always engage in inventing something for sense gratification. Such materialistic inventions are considered to be advancement of human civilization, but the result is that people grow more and more violent and more and more cruel, cruel to animals and cruel to other human beings. They have no idea how to behave toward one another. Animal killing is very prominent amongst demoniac people. Such people are considered the enemies of the world because ultimately they will invent or create something which will bring destruction to all. Indirectly, this verse anticipates the invention of nuclear weapons, of which the whole world is today very proud. At any moment war may take place, and these atomic weapons may create havoc. Such things are created solely for the destruction of the world, and this is indicated here. Due to godlessness, such weapons are invented in human society; they are not meant for the peace and prosperity of the world
