Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
June 6, 2016

Our prayers for all animals continue to circle the earth, to uplift humanity's consciousness, and to bless the animals themselves. Thank you for joining people around the world who are praying this prayer in many different languages but all with the same love:


Greetings of love and gratitude from Judy Carman

HARAMBE, A GORILLA IMPRISONED AT THE CININNATI ZOO HAS BEEN KILLED. Harambe’s name in Swahili ironically means “come together in unity for a common cause.” As you no doubt have heard, a small boy fell into the moat in Harambe’s cage due to inadequate fencing. Harambe dragged the child at one point, but he also stood him up and pulled his pants up gently. The child was not seriously injured. We will never know what Harambe wanted to do. And there was no “unity” being demonstrated when he was killed by zoo employees. Controversy is raging over this heart breaking event. Harambe died due to human failure on multiple levels. The inadequate fencing allowed the child access to the moat. The AZA should have demanded better fencing years ago. The chaos in the watching crowd, the panic among zoo employees who had to do something, the fact that zoo animals are emotionally disturbed because of their confinement making them unpredictable—all these things contributed. But the root cause of this, like that of all animal suffering, is the human mindset of domination. We are taught that we are the dominators of all nature and all animals, and therefore it is ok to imprison animals in zoos; experiment on them; kill them for meat; steal their milk, eggs, and fur; force them to perform in circuses; and the list goes on.

THIS WEEK, WITH THE SPIRIT OF HARAMBE, LET US “COME TOGETHER IN UNITY FOR A COMMON CAUSE.” Our common cause is clear. As vegans, as activists, as vision holders, our mission is to help bring a new humanity into being. Let us use Harambe’s tragic death to talk to people about the barbaric cruelty of zoos. Let us talk and envision and pray for “Homo Ahimsa” to arise out of the ashes of our violent past. “Homo Ahimsa” (described in Peace to All Beings), is the True Human Being, the nonviolent, gentle and compassionate one who is here (as we all are) to bring more Love to earth. Let us pray and help people understand that dominating others and nature leads only to violence and misery for us and all life. This week let us come together in unity with the spirit of Harambe. Harambe, we are trying so hard to teach people that all zoos should be abolished. Along with your gorilla family, we mourn your death. We vow to you that we will continue our prayers and our actions to bring an end to zoos everywhere and to teach human beings that we are not here to dominate but rather to live in harmony and peace with all beings. We join with you and the spirits of all animals who have been immorally and violently used and killed. We join with you in Unity for The Common Cause of liberating humanity from the chains of ignorance and liberating all beings from human domination. Harambe, you have not died in vain. Your story is being told around the world. It is awakening people. Can you feel it? We are with you. Our common cause binds us together in love, peace, and gratitude. We see you, we bless you, we love you.

As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you, dear Prayer Circle members, for joining this circle of compassion and shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all beings will live in peace together.

May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings everywhere. 
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from Will, Madeleine, Tara and the Circle of Compassion team
