hariH Om !!
While you can read others' answers, here is what I
heard reacently from some source.
"Do you know how you acquired the deer/tiger skins ?
How and why do you assume that they were killed by
some one ? Is it not possible that for the saints of
the old times who lived in forests, to get a skin from
a naturally dead animal ?"
Does this reply help you ?
Om Namo Narayanaya !!
