Dharma - Belvan

It was one of those days where nothing goes right. I got whacked on the nose with a stick by the vegetable vendor and when I turned to flee from his angry attack, I ran into a speeding car and was knocked against a bill board post and injured my leg. As I laid there the angry vendor shook his stick at me shouting that the injury was the karmic reaction for stealing vegetables from his cart. Of course I didn't believe him but I was shaken from the unexpected impact and injury. It took me an hour of so before I could get up and stand. My leg was stained with blood down to my hoof. I limped over to the feeder to see if there was any grass in it and one of the larger meandering bulls shoved me into the feeder and I could not get out. I remained there helpless until a nice lady saw me and took the time to arrange for some men to pull me out and dress my wound. She then had me taken to Care for Cows where I have been treated with great respect. It is such a contrast to life in the street. They even put my photo in the gallery.

I have no doubt that it is part of the destiny of the human race in its gradual improvement to leave off eating animals.
