DEDICATED

To

Acharya Sushilkumarji

Gurudev Chitrabhanuji

This book is especially dedicated to Acharya Sushil Muniji and Gurudev Shree Chitrabhanuji who have devoted their entire life in spreading the message of Ahimsa, Compassion, and Reverence for All Life.

With their gentle and loving approach, they have transformed millions of hearts and made a significant difference in their lives and in turn to the lives of voiceless animal kingdom. Masters like these inspire awareness of compassionate living for the betterment of Humanity, Environment, Ecology, and Mother Earth.

'The purpose of living beings is to assist each other.'

Tattvarth-Sutra (Chapter 5, Sutra 21)
