Satva is a state of mind in which the mind is steady, calm and peaceful, and a satvik person works with no attachment to the result. A vegan is one who, as far as practicable and possible, shuns all forms of violence & exploitation and also lives without using any animal products or services. A satvik vegan is one who practices both satvik and vegan principles. Here 'satvik' refers to the character of a person, and not about the person's diet. A person who uses onions/garlics can still be a satvik vegan if he/she exhibits satvik nature.
In other words,
Veganism: Practicing the principle of ahimsa (non-violence) in regard to all beings, in all aspects of life including diet, as far as possible and practicable.
Satvik Veganism: Practicing the principle of ahimsa (non-violence) in regard to all beings, in all aspects of life including diet, along with other important principles, such as truthfulness, simplicity, non-accumulation of wealth, not longing to have something belonging to others, polite behaviour and respectful language, as far as possible and practicable.
Practising veganism greatly reduces cruelty to animals, protects the environment and helps in attaining better health for us.
What We Do?
With our various activities, we provide an identity and voice for vegans, help vegans be better vegans and disseminate information to those who want to be vegans or want to know more about veganism.
