hi steve,
In my opinion it  is important  to not to think about  ourselves too much or giving too much importance as security  and survival  etc.
In this process GOD also helps. Earlier  in my life I killed a few snakes for security  when they entered  my  house . recently a snake entered a house  of my nearby  relative. I was being called as none of the  parents of the kids was there and they were afraid. I have tried to hit the snake  five times with a log of wood but missed.  the snake finally sneaked away. All the time  my wife was praying  for the safety of snake.
I still killed mosquitos when the pester me.Don't know what to do ?
prabhat

Pranams to all

What i admire about India (among other things) is the novel way the Indian people dealt with violence. When they 'fought' for independence they used ahimsa (literally: the avoidance of violence – himsa) to gain it.

Well we were talking about shooting for game and letting others do the dirty work so we can eat flesh. Now we r talking about reptiles that enter your house. Yet when we bury the hatchet into flesh or penetrate it with bullets and a knife to cut the meat; there is an act of violence perpetrated.

It seems to me that we quite often think of killing something first that intrudes into our space. i remember  spending  time with a woman who loved reptiles. It gave me a totally different perspective. i often have used a live trap to catch rodents and then let them go in the neighbors front yard. Just kidding, But the live trap  part is true. When things have got out of control i will admit using poison. Yet i do remember a time when the ants got out of control when i was younger and staying in my aunts guest house.  Aunt Tulin would have nothing to do with killing all the aunts. She demanded that we pray for them and tell them that they had come to the wrong place to live. Miraculously they did leave. So maybe there is something to your wife's prayers Prabhad.

Mosquitoes? They r repelled by tea tree oil, lavender oil  and other herbs. Sometimes its hard to get to sleep with their constant buzzing and intermittent blood rites. Meditation, equanimity and the human body seem more important then a little mosquito. It is best if we can avoid them. If not we can prey for their evolution as we eliminate them in their vampirious exercises. That is, until we become like Sri Yukteswar who was insulated from them as told by PY in the autobiography of a yogi.

I've seen dogs and animals that r a lot more affectionate and loving then humans. They curled up, slept with me and often follow me around. It seemed to tell me that when affection and warmth from others are not forthcoming;  God can still come in other mysterious ways. There is often a little piece of God  that manifests when we r at a loss to find it in humans. i suppose the most important thing is that we love others and try to do our actions in love. If we cannot we need to modify our actions.
