In light of the violence in milk production, please try giving up dairy this Paryushan

During Paryushan, Jains reflect on the harm they may have caused other living beings and fast in some way.  For many Jains, fasting typically involves avoiding foods which are traditionally thought to cause more harm than others, such as root vegetables.

We’d like to invite Jains to reflect on the violence in milk production, and to consider giving up dairy over Paryushan and beyond.
