Verse from the Veda on Virtuous Actions

Popular among a certain group of people are banners, t-shirts, and other items with the words “God, Guns, Trump” printed on them, but it leads people astray. It leads people astray because the last two words do not lead to the first.

God supports all breathing creatures, supports the birds of the air and the animals of land and water. God supports the beef cattle, pigs, chickens, and all the other lovely creatures people like to eat. God supports you, me, and even people as ungodly as Trump. God supports all creatures on livable planets throughout the universe, but important to understand, the amount of support is dependent upon the person.

Anyway, to connect Trump with God is misleading. If you consider the Holy Teaching then Trump is anti.

The Holy Way is compassion for all creatures that grasp for the breath and cry, and since guns have a single purpose of killing, you cannot associate guns with God. Holy people are not gun owners. Holy people speak against the killing of people and animals and the eating of flesh. They are peaceful and caring and if they see a creature suffering, they care for them. Holy people are not racist or sexist and treat all kindly, no matter what.

To enjoy the heavenly state takes virtue, and one gains virtue by engaging in virtuous activities such as caring for people and creatures. Such is the doctrine of peace for the whole of the universe, and here is a mantra to consider.

To become beautiful in light, ten virtues are set to abide with and to and from conform to five; virtuous activities purify the body and mind and bring about happiness in yourself and others. A guide to others on the earth in no way worships where a creature that grasps for the breath and cries is sacrificed, to a ray of light the hide is the same and to be present with the Lord the light decorates the victorious.
