Musing on the etymology of carpe diem decided it is related to carpaccio. Eat your day raw and thinly sliced- it’s delicious already.
Today a though struck me, which I suppose could be posited as a moral dilemma.
It came to me, ironically perhaps, as I was meditating:
Would a true Buddhist save an animal species from extinction, if they were the only one who could, given the Buddhist belief in Nirvana (the end of the cycle of birth, death and rebirth) as the ultimate attainment and goal of being?
A Buddhist should also believe in the application of right thought and of right action. Is it right to let an animal species die out when it could be prevented?
