People often talk about human & humanity when we hear them saying "I do
not want to believe in any religion, I do not want any religion, I do not want
any God. I just want to be human and I believe in humanity". They talk like
this out of their mere ignorance in mind.
Who is Human and What constitutes Human?
Human is a person having opposable thumbs and ability to make and use
specialised tools, articulate speech, possess highly developed brain with the
ability of abstract thought, a rational self-conscious being possessing both
good and bad qualities with the ability to recognize both rights and
What is Humanity?
Humanity for the upper said human is being only confined to kindness,
respect and sympathy in their social interaction while living in a group or
society. If this is limit the of a Human then these people who are keeping
these views are not much better than the animals, birds and insects, because
activities like eating, sleeping, mating, excreting, breathing, drinking, feeling
and moving are common in humans, animals, birds and insects. Humans live
in society, these animals, birds and inspects also live in their herds and
Animals, birds and insects all the three categories are further divided into 2
a) vegetarian b) non-vegetarian. Man is much closer to the vegetarian
There are five different points on which vegetarian and non-vegetarian
1) Teeth: Teeth of cows, deers and buffalos are more closer to human being
than those of Lion's, Tiger's and Dog's. Non-vegetarian animals have sharp
2) Nails: Nails of cows, deers and buffalos are more closer to human being
than those of Lions' Tiger's and Dog's. Non-vegetarian animals posses
pointed sharp nails which help them in hunting, for holding their prey.
3) Vision: Cows, Deers and buffalos along with human loose much of their
visibility in the darkness of night while the visibility of non-vegetarian animals
increases in the darkness of night.
4) Drinking: Human being along with cows, deers and buffalos drink water
my sucking while lions, tigers and dogs drink by licking.
5) Body Temperature: Human being along with cows, deers and buffalos
have lower body temperature then those of non-vegetarian animals.
Vegetarian animals and humans need protection from cold in winter that's
why they need shelters. Non-vegetarian animals have much higher body
temperatures. They need no protection from cold they can survive in any
These five points of difference between vegetarian and non-vegetarian prove
human being as solely created vegetarian by God.
Thus human being divided in groups under the conception of their own
definition of humanity over power by their animal instincts (instincts like
greed, ego, anger, cruelty), first fight between themselves in groups in their
own country and then between different countries of the world. And this war
in humanity never ends unless human are ready to accept deeper meaning
for the conceptions of human and humanity.
Actually human is most beautiful and precious creation of God in this
universe. God himself appears in this form at some times in His incarnation
in this universe, to preach the world religion. Here religion does not mean a
specific religion rather it means knowledge what is right and what is wrong.
That what a man should do and he should not do. Purpose of human life in
this world and how the human life is the most precious chance of liberate one
self from the cycle of repeated births and deaths and all pain associated with
this unending process and to attain final oneness with God or Hari.
Thus even then if some one determine to ignore the path shown by God or
Hari in different religious scriptures on the name of humanity he or she is
that unfortunate who want to plunge him or herself in the dark deep ditch of
ignorance by closing his or her intellect eyes while living in this world.
On the other hand for understanding broad meaning of humanity one has to
recognize himself or herself as the original vegetarian creator not indented for
indulging in performing acts involving cruelty. One has to understand that
this universe is the creation of God or Hari and He is the father of us all. All
beings animals, birds, insects along with human has equal right to live in it.
