Perhaps the most delightful element of this film is not the film itself, but the story behind its creation–just a few guys who were interested in the idea of "oneness," and never thought in a million years it would become a documentary of interviews with people like Thich Nhat Hanh, Deepak Chopra, Robert Thurman, Ram Dass, and others.

That's Why We Don't Eat Animals by Ruby Roth

  Spiritual Book: That's Why We Don't Eat Animals

That's Why We Don't Eat Animals is a timely reminder to look inside our hearts and reconsider the choices we make – and their impact on our fellow creatures and the well-being of the planet.
