To Be Truly All-Embracing

To Be Truly All-Embracing

He presented himself to be free,
free even to eat anything,
open in an all-embracing way.

But doesn’t he see the animals to be not free,
to not be killed and eaten,
such that they all struggle to embrace life?

To be truly free,
to be truly all-embracing,
is to respect the wish of all beings to be free.
