selfless love in the animal kingdom

1. Heart Warming Reunion and Affection

In 1969 John Rendall and Ace Berg saw a lion cub for sale in Harrods. Cramped and lonely in a small cage, they decided to bring it home. They raised this lion cub who they named Christian, and sadly he got too big for them to take care of so they decided to release him to live as a wild lion.

Well, in this footage, a year has passed and it looks like Christian's adapted to living with a pride of lions when his old friends come back to visit him. Watch closely and you can see the look of pure disbelief that dawns on his muzzle- it's awesome. Next thing you know, we have a heart warming reunion.

One of the most amazing display of animal affection ever captured on video. This is footage of Ana Julia Torres affectionately kissed and hugged by Jupiter, a large African lion who's gratefulness is poured out beautifully. Ana fed and nursed Jupiter back to health years ago after it was found abused in a traveling circus. Torres said ‘This hug is the most sincere one that I have received in my life’.

Often times its the animals, be it man's faithful companions, the dogs or house cats or even animal in the wild can remind us the flow of love that is inherent in every sentient beings. The human race, the most conscious being on this planet earth and the most evolved has this pure and selfless love as his or her birth-right as well. Yet the cloud of attached selfishness so much cover that selfless loving compassionate nature of our original humanness. Its greatly humbling to see the beasts reminding us of true nature of being.

And in the creation of yourselves and all the animals that are scattered throughout creation, there are Signs for people of certainty.
- The Quran 45:4

In the heart of all sentient beings Buddha nature (of loving compassion) naturally manifest.
- Buddhist Zen tradition

The greatest achievement is selflessness. The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.
- Attisha, the great buddhist saint of Bengal

You, no less than all beings have Buddha Nature within.
- Dhammavadaka

And there is no animal that walks upon the earth nor a bird that flies with its two wings but (forms part of) communities like yourselves; We have neglected nothing in the Book (of Our decrees). Then unto their Lord they will be gathered.
- The Quran 6:38

There is no moving creature on earth but its sustenance depends on Allah: He knoweth the time and place of its definite abode and its temporary deposit: All is in a manifest Record.
- The Quran 11:6

And how many a living creature that does not carry its sustenance: Allah sustains it and yourselves; and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
- The Quran 29:60
