Roles of Animals

If we are the Universe, expressing itself as a human, who and what are animals are? What are the here for? Animals are very important beings walking alongside humans as messengers and teachers. They help us understand the world around us better. They are teachers and masters of utmost value and their lessons for us are precious.

Animals are Sentient Beings

The situation of animals in today’s day and time is worse than can be put in words. Animals are conscious and sentient beings and we ought to treat every living being with consideration and respect. However, we violate our rights of speech and power to its superlative degree, treating animals in sub-brackets of pet, wild, domestic help, FOOD, so forth and so on.

Ancients Treated Animals with Respect

Ancient people were much sorted than evolved human race. We have achieved milestones in terms of science and technology, however, we have gone backwards in terms of compassion, respecting other beings and humane. Ancient people were quite depended on animals because they knew that their behaviour and mother nature were always in tune.
