Dear Sri Venkatesh
With all due respect, it is deceptive and disingenous for you to characterize the individuals involved in this discussion as a "beef appreciation group".
If anything I find the discussion to be one of Vedic appreciation vs (Selfstyled) morality appreciation as the deterministic compass for dharmic action.
This topic then extends to domains far beyond the rigid parameters that frame the issue of animal - specifically bovine in this instance - sacrifice.
I hope your seeming inability to imbibe this appreciation regarding the basic framework of the issue being debated is not intentional.

I feel good Sri Sastri has given the opinion 'Cow cannot be killed'.
It will silence the Beef Appreciation Group we have here. What is he
saying about Sankara Bhashya 6-4-18 on Uksha and Rishabha? It is
definitely relevant for this list because it is for discussing Sankara
Bhashyas. The moderators can take a decision.
