Reading the Bible and killing animals

    Posted on December 26, 2014

You can read also Bible. That is nice. We do not say that don't read Bible. Read something, but learn something. Jesus Christ said, "Thou shall not kill." You learn this art. But you read Bible and kill animals, then what is your benefit? First of all try to understand that you read Christ and you violate his order, then what is the use of reading? You follow. Then that is reading.

(Srila Prabhupada, speaking on Bhagavad-gita 13.4 -- February 27, 1975, Miami)
