HOLY COW: The Hare Krishna contribution to Vegetarianism and Animal Rights

Steven J. Rosen Interviewed by Claudette Vaughan

We heard him speak passionately on the often neglected subject of a veggie diet through the Canadian animal advocacy radio show Animal Voices. The greatest success story over the past 25 years for the Hare Krishna’s has been their ‘Food For Life’ program. It has served hot, nutritious vegetarian meals throughout America, Asia, Africa, Australia and Europe. Lately there’s been some controversy though. Here Steve Rosen speaks to us about his book ‘Holy Cow: The Hare Krishna Contribution to Vegetarianism and Animal Rights’ and their ‘Food for Life’ program in India.
