WVA: True evolution - Spoon revolution

At the WVA managerial meeting, the WVA General Secretary Swami B.A. Paramadvaiti introduced to the assembled acharyas, WVA secretaries and sannyasis the concept of preaching through the Spoon Revolution. Swami said that in the western world more people are taking to vegetarianism and also becoming open to hear the message of Lord Chaitanya. The Internet page and project spoonrevolution.org is developing an increased awareness and enthusiasm in people to become vegetarians and to find out about karma-free food, which is nothing other than prasadam, food offered to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He also mentioned that unfortunately in India today vegetarianism is in decline. Young Indians think it is more modern to follow the degraded ways of the West and eat all kinds of meat. Their conception of vegetarianism is without scientific basis. They think it is the custom of antiquated grandmothers that one should eat only vegetarian food, and they have no idea about the health and environmental hazards factory farming is producing in the world. Shanti Ranjan Prabhu from the Gaudiya mission argued that if we spread pure bhakti, people will automatically become vegetarians. A similar concern was made by the president of Srila Bhakti Kumud Shanta Maharaja's new Math in Mayapur. Nevertheless, the overall opinion was that an increase in vegetarianism would be very good for the world.
