"TO LIVE------------------------------------------TO EAT-------"

1.When man, of his own accord, refuses the blessings of his powers of discrimination, which his intellect is capable of, he is deliberately flouting his privileges as man.



2. And when one has thus, of his own free will, chosen to be an animal, certainly nature shall bless him with the sorrows and limitations of the animal beings!!


3. Man alone is the glorious heir to the supreme joy arising out of the knowledge achieved, and therefore, of the lived-Perfections.


4. It is the lot of animals "to live to eat"suffer meekly the gruesome burden of voiceless sorrows and live a life of delusions and empty joys.


5. The Sruti ( Rishies words, passed on to generation after generation) here clearly points out that  the men of no self-control, not only fail to reach the Supreme State of Joy and Peace, 


6. but also fall back into the sorrow-pit at the very center of the whirl of birth and death ( Samsaram ca adhigacchati).
