The Meat-Guzzler

HG Gauranga Kishore Prabhu, preacher extraordinare, is taking Krsna, progressive outreach style, to the hearts and minds of the students of Stanford University, and you can check out the website for Conscious SF ( for all the latest and greatest.

From their website, also check out this article from the New York Times called "Rethinking the Meat-Guzzler", which details the immense environmental and economic footprint resulting from the livestock industry.

It's actually not a secret that the livestock industry has as much, if not more, of a negative effect on the delicate balance of our ecosystems than does the oil industry. When will the big guns like Al Gore and the Sierra Club put vegetarianism on the list of practical and positive things anyone can do to help ease the burden on Mother Earth?

The clock continues to tick, and we're not just talking about the microwave timers for the TV dinners. This is a big chance for ISKCON and all spiritually-minded vegetarians to get ahead of the curve and show a ready-and-waiting world that we have big solutions for the big problems of our time.
