What we're about

This is a group for those who are interested in both Buddhism/Dharma, spreading/practicing compassion for all beings, and a vegan diet (as a way to help do that).

The mission of this group is parallel to the larger organization, Dharma Voices for Animals (DVA). To learn more about this topic, please explore the DVA website at: www.dharmavoicesforanimals.org (http://www.dharmavoicesforanimals.org/)

And please consider becoming a member of DVA. It is free and helps spread the message. The website to learn more is: http://www.dharmavoicesforanimals.org/join-dva

I will send announcements about events related to Buddhism/Dharma and spreading compassion for animals periodically.

Thank you for your interest in this topic!

Blessings,

Ali (Alexandra Arbogast)
