Every year around the world, millions of animals die or suffer needlessly. In countries like Nepal, the care and management of animals is particularly poor and in addition, Nepal still supports a number of festivals in which animals are violently and brutally ritually slaughtered.
Animals neither live pleasantly nor die peacefully. The vast majority of people are completely ignorant about animal welfare and laws and penalties to protect animals from abuse are insufficient.
Their Animal Liberation Sanctuary benefits rescued animal,s not only because they are freed from impending death but also because they are exposed to Dharma teachings, regularly hear mantras and are led around holy objects. This means they create merit and gain the opportunity to escape the lower realms. It also gives people the chance to create merit and purify life-obstacles.
When animals are ill or dying there are a number of practices that you can do, and mantras that you can recite.
