It is sad, but deeply thoughtful and lovely. This gives a glimpse of the Buddhist belief system as it interplays with animals of all sorts. Though animals that are turned into food products are prominently featured, there is also careful mention of any animal needing a home and care and nourishment. This brings to my mind the lost pet, the pet displaced by disaster, the poorly cared-for or abandoned pet. I find it interesting that most major religions do not feature mention of nonhuman life and the care due thereof. It's part of my job as a good curator to bring as many different views to you as I may.
May no animal be afraid or depressed.
May their bodies be free of injuries, disease and illness.
May those who need homes, or who have been driven from them find shelter, plentiful food & water.
May there be liberation for those tortured for fur, entertainment or who are hunted.
