Buy captive animals and give them freedom.
How commendable is abstinence, that dispenses with the butcher!
While walking be mindful of worms and ants.
Be cautious with fire and do not set mountain woods or forests ablaze.
Do not go into the mountain to catch birds in nets,
nor to the water to poison fishes and minnows.
Do not butcher the ox that ploughs your field.

From “The Tract Of The Quiet Way”.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.
