WHAT IS SAVING LIVES AND HOW TO PARTICIPATE


 

Saving Lives is a practice in which we rescue animals that would be used for sacrifice, slaughter, or any other activity that would take their lives, and release them into their natural environment. The ceremonies include the recitation of prayers and mantras, and conclude with dedications.

As it is considered supreme among longevity practices, it is commonly dedicated to beings who have faced obstacles to their longevity, such as risk of death or serious health problems. It can also be directed to beings whose lives have profound value to you.

We pray that the animals themselves, after escaping suffering, find rebirth in the form of human beings with a spiritual connection.

During Chötrul Düchen, the effects of our actions, both virtuous and non-virtuous, are multiplied millions of times, so as Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo states in the sadhana Increasing Life and Vitality: A Practice for Freeing Lives, this is an excellent time to generate virtue by saving lives, and to generate interdependence for a longer life for ourselves and those to whom we dedicate the practice.

Offerings may be made until Feb 24 at 6pm (UTC-3). For further information, please send a message to [email protected]
