Even the smallest creature also loves his soul as much as a human being. Then what right anybody has that he may knowingly tread upon the weaker creatures than himself inattentively? When milk, butter, ghee and nuts, dry fruits as well as fruits and other energetic substances which are pure and tasteful as well as simple food stuffs are available but avoiding them to eat poor dump animals and their flesh having killed them is what type of humanity?
It may be possible that some persons may feel this argument bad but when then cruelly cut throats of birds and animals by daggers then what those poor creatures would have felt? Do they feel that their victims are made of stones? If not, then whether for some days being powerful to tread others and kill them for food is not an injustice?
Being unkind to them to use daggers against them is not only injustice, but dangerous cruelty and if thought upon deeply, it is also a deception which challenges our right to be called as human being.
On the basis of this just factual and true argument, Jainism tells with force – ‘O Man! the excess of knowledge and power bestowed upon you in comparison to other creatures must be used for good purpose and should protect others right and freedom like that of your own self. If this can not be done then at least you must not become their eater.
In this way, the Tirthankaras have inspired every man to behave every creature with proper equity, freedom and kindness, though however befallen and poor he may cause him to sit under the cold shadow of religion and made him holy and even claim to make even a God from Soul. Actually, if the religion would not be the protective and up-lifter of the weak and the benefactor of the worldly creatures then what is its importance and need?
Some persons somewhere and sometimes show sole right on religion only of themselves or particular caste or class can be seen to be trying to avoid other persons from hearing holy words of religious scriptures or acting as per religion or from the right of praying, bowing low to lords. Possibly they may not have the understanding that every creature has right to bathe in the religious Ganges and to make their lives holy.
Hence, having left religious blindness and mean mentality, it is the holy duty of religious performance of others and as far as possible they should help and co-operate them in it.
As per religious scripts one frog due to his feelings of devotion and pledge of worship only received heaven and the Acharyas have taught religious lessons to the elephant, monkey, lion and other animals and showed right path of living and this made them Lord from animals. Then what to talk of human beings?
Even a religious chandal(person of low caste) having observed Ahimsa Vrat has become worthy to be worshiped not only by human beings but even the devas. Even the prostitutes having left their tradition and adopted religious characters and reaches heaven and even hunters, person of loose characters and meat eaters having left their sinful acts have achieved liberation and enjoyed heavily comforts.
Hence, it is proved that any person who may belong to any caste, creed or class can not be disallowed from observing a holy thing like religion. No. caste is bad. The qualities are the basis of their being high or low.
If a chandal also has his acts according to religion and observes rules and has achieved Samyak Darshan (right thinking) and right knowledge, then surely he is to be worshiped like a Deva but a noble man if he is violent, dishonest, meat eater, loose character, drunkered and cruel then surely he is a low person.
The difference appearing in the human race due to their feelings and color differences or country or race is not for having hatred to suppress or oppress anyone. By this much only the affection and friendly behavior is set aside and hatred and envy takes its place. Actually they are blaming human race and humanity is far away from them.
