  36. Hi Lijiun, thanks for liking our blog The Arahant. We live in a Buddhist monastery high in the mountains of Sri Lanka. The water is so pure, you can drink out of the steams. We are surrounded by organic farmers. I’ve been vegetarian since I was 16. Nice to come across your blog, hope you can visit us again soon. There’s lot of cool stuff in the pipe line!

  37. Thank you for stopping by my blog so I could find yours. I agree with everything. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, both my kids have been vegetarians their whole lives (18 and 15 years old). We do not buy or wear leather or any other animal products. We are against animal testing and abuse of animals in any way! So we are kindred spirits! I am excited to follow your blog. 😉
    Are you aware of PCRM(Physicians for Responsible Medicine http://www.pcrm.org/) and Navs (National Anti- Vivisection Society http://www.navs.org/)? Both great groups!

    You have some really gorgeous ones here too and I love the idea of your blog…” spread the seeds of kindness and compassion”. I think you will help make the world a better place.

    Peace, Love, Abundance.
