This yoga master, Swami Satchidananda is one yogi that my father studied with before I was born, and why he and my mother shifted to be vegetarian. This is on reason why I never ate fish, chicken or meat in my life, because of these teachings and my parents shift, due to these reasons which is the yogic diet philosophy, for health and the animals.
*Both are my parents are still vegetarian or vegan, over 46 years later and I am too, 45 years later. (As of Ot 2020) My father's dog (standard poodle) is also a vegan! (: Yes! Davinchi the dog is vegan too, and thriving with perfect health.
