On the way to the metro in Baltimore last night there was a pigeon who had been struck by a car lying in the gutter. The bird was not crushed although it couldn't fly so a wing had probably been injured and there were feathers in the street. It had curled up into a ball and was nestled against the curb but still in the street. With some difficulty I moved the bird to a nearby box on the sidewalk under an awning so it wouldn't be crushed by a bus or a car. I also blew mantras on the bird as I put it in the box. I have no doubt that the bird was going to die but I have been surprised before. Unfortunately I have no resources now to take the bird to a vet should it have survived the night.

So please pray for the bird so that it will encounter the Dharma in it's next life.

Thanks!

Kirt

Bless you and thank you for your kindness! It is a true act of Bodhicitta to save those of the animal realm who have been injured by our Samsaric inventions. :twothumbsup: :bow:
