Synopsis:

Hinduism is an extremely complex and interesting religion with a belief system rooted in respect for the environment and all living things. Reverence of certain species can lead to changes in their behaviour, however, these changes may not always be positive. Ahimsa reveals the unique relationships between hindu people and animals that exist because of the spiritual connotations they hold. It explores whether the spiritual worship of animals can offer insight in how humans and animals might coexist in a modern world and help salvage the connection between humans and nature which seems to be disappearing.
