May all that have life be delivered from suffering. -Buddha

The Buddha’s statement speaks to the fundamental truth that all living beings, regardless of species, nationality, or any other quality, deserve to live a life free from suffering. In the Buddhist tradition, the term ‘suffering’ (dukkha) is used to describe the universal experience of physical and mental distress, which can manifest in a variety of forms, including physical pain, mental anguish, and feelings of emptiness. To be delivered from suffering is to be freed from this distress, and to live a life of peace and joy. This is a goal that all of us should strive for, both for ourselves and for those around us. We can take steps to reduce suffering in the world by being mindful of our own actions and by actively working to alleviate the distress of others. By doing this, we can create a world where all living beings are free from suffering and can experience true peace and joy.
