Animal Liberation Project
No sentient being wants to experience pain or suffering. Unfortunately, billions of animals and insects are killed for human consumption, used as live bait or food for other animals, and killed for their skins or fur, among many other terrible fates. Liberating animals and insects from death or harm is a way to help alleviate their suffering and extend their precious life. Special spiritual practices can also be done during a liberation to create the cause for their good rebirth.
In the summer months, Anye supports ongoing, monthly animal liberations, which include extensive prayers and dedications to the long life of others. Supporting animal liberations creates the cause for long life, for the animals, for those participating in or funding the liberations, and for those to whom the prayers are dedicated. According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, “for the person who liberates animals, or whoever wants to dedicate the merit to those with life obstacles, this practice helps them to obtain a long life. Even if you do not expect it, the karma will result in one having a long life.”
Our next animal liberation will take place on May 20th, 2016 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

“Where there is a mind, there are feelings such as pain, pleasure, and joy. No sentient being wants pain; instead all want happiness. Since we all share these feelings at some basic level, we as rational human beings have an obligation to contribute in whatever way we can to the happiness of other species and try our best to relieve their fears and sufferings.”
His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama
“The value of a sentient life is not measured in its utility to others, but in its immense, irreplaceable value to the being whose life it is.”
