Veganism – One more step towards Jainism?

Jainism believes in Ahimsa (non-violence). The Jain concept of ahimsa is not only subjected to humans but also to animals, micro-organisms, plants and all beings having life or life potential. Every act by which a person directly or indirectly supports killing any life is seen as act of violence, which creates harmful reaction karma. The aim of ahimsa is to prevent the accumulation of such karmas.
