During our daily conversation with others, we can do our part to share on meat free diet, not using leather products, no animal testing, no shark fin…..
Whenever, I’ve a chance and the audience is ready, I’ll share on how much suffering that animals need to go through due to our desire.
Normally, half way of my verbal sharing, people already saying, “Please stop it, it’s unbearable!”
Whenever, I want to borrow them the DVD on ” how suffering are animals?”
The chances people want to pick up the DVD is so slim.
Its mean that most of us understood the suffering from our animal friends but we just can’t control our desire…
Whenever, people talk about nice meat cuisine, they are just focus on their own desire, own happiness and to satisfy their senses. They called this as “Enjoyment in life”
People just can’t imagine what type of “Hell” that we are creating for our animal friends.
e.g. How is the killing process of chicken? How is the living environment in a farm?
Whenever, people talk about fashionable leather handbag, leather jacket, they can’t imagine how is the killing process or they might totally forgot that there is life in animals.
They just focus on the praise, compliment from others on their “new fashion”, “great fashion taste”, “modern”….
Imagine how painful when you cut your finger, how painful when you get burn from fire, how painful when you get hot water burn…. put yourself in the animal shoes.
Sit quietly and contemplate the total killing process, the fear, the pain, the tension, the stress, the suffering, the separation with family, the anger…….
“All tremble at violence, all fear death.
Comparing oneself with others do not harm, do not kill.
All are frightened of being hurt or any threat to one’s life. To all life is dear.
Seeing that others feel the same way as oneself, equating others to oneself, refrain from harming or killing.”
By Buddha, Dhammapada
Let’s spend your precious time to think about it…
May all beings be well and happy! May you bring happiness to our animal friends!
