Do you use leather products?
Do you buy leather jacket, fur coat, leather shoes, leather bag, belt or any accessories made from animals?
Have you ever think about where is the leather come from?
Some of the people, will only focus on the beauty, the luxuries, the latest fashion, the fame, the famous, they are totally ignore the process of how to get the leather?
Some even not knowing that animals need to be killed in order to get their skin.
In the past, I bought leather products too as there was no awareness in my mind.
Once I found out and I read about how animals are going through the suffering in order to provide their skin to us and lost their life. I felt the pain, agony and suffering…
I stopped my purchasing habit and repent on all my past action.
Recently, I read a few articles on the rabbit being pull off their hair every 3 months, imagine the agony, the helpless scream of the rabbit when they start the process…. If you are one of them, how do you feel?
The another article on how people kill the fox in order to get the fur… Why are we bring so much pain and suffering to other beings?
You can be the change agent, say NO to leather products. How many life you can save?
How wonderful if we can relieve suffering of all beings! What is more happy than doing this?
Some might say, “They are only animals, not human….”
Don’t you think so, we should use our intelligent to save other beings instead of bring suffering to them?
This evening, I had a walk in my lovely garden, I saw….
Before you make any decision in buying any products made from animals, imagine if you are one of them, HOW DO YOU FEEL?
Be silence & Contemplate about it!
One of the basic points is kindness. With kindness, with love and compassion, with his feeling that is the essence of brotherhood, sisterhood, one will have inner peace. This compassionate feeling is the basis of inner peace.
