Animals are Conscious

While attending a 2012 world-class event, many "big gun” scientists such as Christof Koch and Stephen Hawking attested to an extensive research's conclusion that animals have consciousness.

From Scientific American:

This privileged state of subjective awareness in fact goes well beyond Homo sapiens, according to the new Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness (pdf), which was signed last month by a group of cognitive neuroscientists, computational neuroscientists, neuroanatomists, neuropharmacologists, neurophysiologists who attended the Francis Crick Memorial Conference on Consciousness in Human and non-Human Animals at Cambridge University in the U.K.

The attached file, if read carefully, will clear up any uncertainty.

Pass on to all others!

Thank You!

Dear Devotees.

The new “Church Law” in Hungary will take away ISKCON Hungary’s church status as of January 1st requiring us to reapply for the same nextyear. However the government has not provided any legal stipulation for the society’s continued ownership of Krsna Valley’s lands in the interim perioduntil we are again reregistered. In short we risk losing Krsna Valley with no pasture for our cows or land to grow our food. I therefore request thatyou sign the online petition—link below — and forward this message to as many people as possible who would also petition against this injustice.

Thank you.
Sivarama Swami.
