This event provides an opportunity for us to consider how anthropocentrism has played a destructive role in our world, and how we can regain our sense of Cosmo-Ubuntu with all beings and existence. Through retelling stories told by Daoist Master Zhuangzi and stories about the Buddha giving his life to save animals, the talk hopes to stimulate discussions on these questions: What has led us to the current state of ecological crises? Can we treat other species as our equals with great compassion? Are all beings intelligently and divinely playing a unique and vital role in the cosmos supporting and enhancing each other? How can we forego anthropocentrism and construct a sense of Cosmo-Ubuntu and interbeing? Painfully witnessing the great species extinction happening in our world, what types of learning do we need to promote in order to embrace Love as the universal energy and consciousness for a World for All?
