"Your body belongs to the earth. In modern life, people tend to think their bodies belong to them, that they can do anything they want to themselves. But your body is NOT only yours. Your body belongs to your ancestors, your parents, and future generations. It also belongs to society and to all other living beings. The trees, the clouds, the soil, and everything brought about the presence of your body. We can eat with care knowing we are CARETAKERS of our body, rather than their owners"
