To better understand why the QI Group practices vegetarianism and promotes it as a way of life, watch this video.

“Spiritual progress does demand at some stage that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.” –Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi, the corporate icon of the QI Group propagated the concept of ahimsa, a Sanskrit term which in the simpler sense means non-violence but in the broader, more succinct sense means – all life is sacred. This translated into the practice of vegetarianism, which he lived by, and propagated vehemently.Of all the Lord’s living creatures, Man has the greatest aptitude for compassion. What better way can he exhibit this than by what he chooses to eat.

Vegetarianism is not a food choice nor is it a lifestyle statement or even a health preference; it is our statement that all Life is Sacred. Hence, the QI Group from its very inception has abided by this fundamental rule and has remained vegetarian in all of its events, be it a corporate lunch, press events or feeding thousands at a convention.
