Drinking unfiltered water causes not only the killing of countless lives but it is also bad for health.
Even modern scientists have found that one drop of unfiltered water contains 36450 lives. Therefore everyone should always drink filtered water.

Filtered water is without livingbeings (pure) for 48 minutes only. Again Tras Jeevas are born in the filtered water therefore it should be filtered again.
