Trata-se de um projecto mundial, denominado "FOOD FOR LIFE"! (clica para saberes mais)
Este projecto tem como base a preocupação com o flagelo mundial da FOME e, desta forma, tenta angariar fundos para poder ajudar aqueles que não têm o que comer!
Numa época em que metade do mundo vive com uma dieta hipercalórica e, grande parte, com excesso de peso, enquanto que a outra metade vai definhando com a sua deficiência nutricional, é certo que se os alimentos que uns têm a mais fossem distribuidos por quem deles necessita, a realidade poderia ser outra!
"Food for Life Global represents the world’s largest vegetarian food relief. With roots in India’s Vedic food culture, projects in 50 countries, a strong heritage of respect for the environment, and a current distribution of more than 1,000,000 meals daily, the charity is beginning to make a significant impact on world consciousness.
How so? The mission of Food for Life is to bring about peace and prosperity in the world through the liberal distribution of pure vegetarian meals. Food for Life strongly believes that the reason there is so much violence in the world is because of man’s inability to see the equality of all beings. The pure vegetarian meals we serve, therefore, are a statement of respect for other species and a call to a more humane way of life.
Just like us, animals feel pain. Granted, they may not have the intelligence of man, but they do have emotions and are living, breathing conscious beings just like humans. Recognizing this fact is the basis of a truly humane society.
Since food is so central to everyone’s life. It is only natural that it is the most effective medium to initiate change in consciousness. All of us have had the experience of sitting down to a meal cooked with love and felt an immediate transformation of consciousness and reciprocal love for the person that cooked the meal. The fact is, when prepared with love, food can speak any language. Such food has the ability to break down barriers, turn anger into love, fear into trust and ignorance into enlightenment.
When a person is living consciously, they will do so in all their thoughts and actions. Their life will be consistent and in harmony with their environment. They will compliment their surrounding and not disturb them. Living consciously begins with conscious eating. (...)" ver mais aqui
