Kindness to Animals and Respect for the Earth series.
“Look at the mess that tiger is making,” said the foolish tree spirit. “The air is no longer fresh and clean. I’m getting rid of that beast!”
“Please don’t!” cried the wise tree spirit. “The life of the forest depends on the tiger.”
In this Jataka tale, the Buddha appears as a wise tree spirit to teach that all beings are a living part of the earth. Only by developing empathy with each other and all of earth’s creatures, can we protect the environment.
