Ahimsa: A personal journey, via an animal sanctuary in India, to veganism

If you enjoyed following this blog, you might be interested to know that I have written a book. It is called Ahimsa which, in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, means respect for all living things and avoidance of violence towards others.

This is what it’s all about:

On a 32,000 km journey through six Asian countries over six months, Caroline, a journalist, and her husband become increasingly aware of animal welfare, poverty and what we aredoing to the planet. 

They had no idea when they set off that they were going to end up vegan. Ahimsa is the story of their journey, meeting colourful characters and exploring many philosophical themes along the way. It is topical and questioning, in parts funny, sad and increasingly angry.

Part travel, part memoir, it is an uplifting, thought-provoking account of the route to compassion, not least through the simple act of cuddling a cow in India.

One of the undoubted stars of the book is Zippy, a rescue dog with his own message to convey about the meaning of life.

I hope you will consider buying a copy. It is available on Amazon here.

For international readers and those who prefer ebooks, I’ll let you know here when it will be available in that format.
