Episode Description:

What is Universal Compassion? - PSA (2:38)

Universal Compassion brings awareness and engagement in compassionate practices towards those beings who cannot speak of their right to live in peace.

Compassion is not the exclusive right of human beings. Just as we humans prefer to experience loving kindness and compassion, so too do the animals we consume as food or abuse and sometimes even kill for ''sport'', even though they cannot express this basic right.

The main focus as a movement is to ease the suffering of those helpless animals who are slaughtered for meat, ritual sacrifice, the cruel sport of hunting, or are abused in farms and industries and wherever they may suffer.

The long-range goals are global concerns, such as promoting world peace, interfaith harmony, protection and conservation of the environment, ''the mother earth'' giving a helping hand to destitute children in their education and programs of essential assistance, who would otherwise be left facing great difficulties to survive.
