Read from Petfinder.my that Dr. Chan Kah Yein, our Dhamma speaker, a true animal lover and a pet rescuer leads the I-SAW (INTI Society for Animal Welfare), INTI College at Subang Jaya. That is great news.
Please do try to get your hands on her book, "Pawprints on my heart" It is about seven little stories about kindness to animals. Also do keep a box of tissue next to you while reading her experiences with her pets and those who were discarded. She will show you how we can make our lives richer and more meaningful as we live together harmoniously as one big family.
Now this is what I call "See the Bigger Picture" and "Think Out of the Box". I sincerely believe that those who read this book, will get to fully understand and love animals even though you do not have a pet.
Educate, that's right, teach the young.
Prayer of Gentleness to All Creatures
To all the humble beasts there be,
To all the birds on land and sea,
Great Spirit, sweet protection give
That free and happy they may live!
And to our hearts the rapture bring
Of love for every living thing;
Make us all one kin, and bless
Our ways with Nature's gentleness!
