Buying and Releasing Live Crabs


One of the joys of my life is going to the local wharf every week to buy and release live crabs. Before I let them go, I talk to them and explain where we are and that I am releasing them into the ocean.


In Buddhism, there is a belief that an animal may have the opportunity for a human rebirth, so I always hope that for them as well.

When I am done, I take a walk and meditate on my connection to other living beings, including the crab. I feel so happy to have found this outlet and simple way to save a life.
