The legend of ancient mythical tales of gods and demons,
Believe the sacrificial of animals' lives as merits making,
The ritual merciless killing of innocent animals,
Is nothing more than a dark and sad tunnel to hell.
I composed these verses during the Nepal festival of Dasain where tens of thousands animals are being killed in the name of gods and prosperity of oneself. I appreciate and admire there are many of Nepalese who are also Hindu but do not believe in sacrificing animals. Instead, they visit temples and make offerings of flowers and fruits. They make good wishes to their family as well as peace of country and the world at large. I really respect them and I too make good wishes to them on Vijya Dashmi. I feel very sad for those who still believe that killing can bring luck and merits for them. I think its just misleading and not really told in a pure teaching of hindu religion. They could have misinterpreted the words of the teachings. Happy vijya dashmi and may all of you be well and prosper. May our beautiful land of Nepal remain peaceful and proper.
