Rudraksha and Ahimsa

Today we include two short answers to questions relating to ahimsa, nonhurtfulness. The first is from an admitted meat eater who wonders if it is alright for him to wear rudraksha beads. The second is from a remorseful e-devotee who killed a spider. He would like to know how to atone.

Having hurt another through wrongdoing, one has to pay back in proportion to the injury, not a rupee less and not a rupee more. The moment the healing is complete, the scar will mysteriously vanish. This is the law. It is a mystical law.
