Tirukkural 256: Abstinence from Flesh

If the world does not destroy life for the purpose of eating, then no one would sell flesh for the sake of money.

The good-and-bad concept should be thrown out with a lot of other things, including the up-and-down concept. There is no good; there is no bad. You don't raise your consciousness, nor do you lower it.
—Gurudeva
