Everyone.

Absolutely everyone.

Wants to live.

Wants to experience happiness.

Wants to experience luxury.

Wants to be protected.

Wants to be loved.

Wants to be free from fear.

Wants to be free from danger.

 

Just like the way you value your own life

so do all beings in this world.

Put down your greed,

put down your desire,

put down your knife,

put down that slaughter.

 

Just like the way you value your own life

so should you give the right

to other beings in this world.

 

Do not take away their right

to live, to experience happiness.

It is wrong.

It is selfish.

It is disastrous.

It is inhumane.

 

If you harm others,

there is a guarantee that

you will be harmed.

 

That is simply,

the law of this world.

Cause and effect.

 

When one takes

a bad action,

a bad consequence

arises from it.

 

When one takes

a good action,

a good consequence

arises from it.

 

For the benefit of beings

and yourself,

do not harm others

nor allow others

to harm others.
