WHY DO BUDDHISTS RELEASE ANIMALS?

Fangsheng 放生 refers to releasing lives and Buddhists are encouraged to do that during the course of their practice. What is the truth behind this action?

When we release a life, we save a life. In return, it will lengthen our lifespan.

It is a meritorious deed and will accumulate merits.

It stresses the importance of compassion and kindness. We cannot bear to see them die or getting harmed. We want them out of life-threatening situations.

If one is sick and goes to release lives, it will bring benefits to one’s health.

All living beings are equal. Whenever they are in danger, we will rescue them.

Fangsheng promotes compassion, kindness, equality, and harmony.
