The London Vegetarian Society sends warmest greetings to the many millions of vegetarians in India and greatly hopes that the forthcoming XVth International Vegetarian Congress to be held in Bombay will strengthen the ties between us and between vegetarians in all parts of the world. 

Our own Society already has many personal links with India and we are proud to have had the honour of having numbered your great leader Mahatma Gandhi among our members, as well as at the present time Mrs. Rukmini Devi Arundale, whose humanitarian work we so greatly admire.

May India be saved from the delusion of regarding all Western ways as being those of true progress, for undoubtedly the habit of flesh-eating has brought to the West a terrible toll of disease and misery to the human and sub-human kingdoms.

Let us stand strongly together in our testimony of that way of life which aims to ultimately eliminate all slaughter and exploitation of animals,, the general adoption of which would also make it possible for all people of the earth to be properly fed.

RONALD LIGHTOWLER (Secretary, The London Vegetarian Society)

Let us stand strongly together in our testimony of that way of life which aims ultimately to eliminate all slaughter and exploitation of animals, the general adoption of which would also make it possible for all people of the earth to be properly fed.
