Circles of Life

《生生不息》by 张静初

很多很多年以前,在森林里、河流边、高山或平原上,我们人类与地球上的其他生命同吃同住,一起生长,一起奔跑,一起玩耍。

Many years ago, in the forest, at the riverside and across high mountains and vast plains, humans and other animals lived and grew together, running and playing around as companions.

有时,我们会吃掉一些动物,有时,也会被一些动物吃掉,但,我们和它们,都是自由的。Sometimes we ate animals, and sometimes we got eaten by them, yet both were free.

后来,人发明了工具和武器,统治了地球。

Then, people invented tools and weapons and ruled the earth ever since.

我们想减轻自己劳动的负担,就让牛帮我们耕地,让马帮我们驼东西,让狗帮我们看门;

To reduce heavy workload, we raised the cattle to help us plow, tamed horses for transportation, and trained dogs into gatekeepers;

我们想随时吃到美味的鸡蛋、鸭蛋、鹅蛋,想每天能喝到牛奶,我们还想要熊的胆汁、梅花鹿的角、狐狸的皮毛……

Once we were able to eat delicious eggs and drink fresh milk every day, we began to crave the bile of the bear, the horn of the deer and the fur of the fox …

我们人,想要的太多了,欲望,永远没有满足。

we just want too much, and our appetite is insatiable.

我们把这些动物抓起来,圈起来,给它们食物,然后就觉得可以随意决定它们何时为我们而死。

We catch these animals, keep them in leash, feed them, and also feel free to arrange their death for our own sake.

我们傲慢地认为,动物有什么情感?它们哪会感知痛苦?

We are too arrogant to look inside the animal minds: Do they have any emotions? Can they perceive pain?

在一个屠宰场里,曾有一只马上要被屠杀的大肚子羊妈妈。

There was a pregnant ewe to be slaughtered in the knacker's yard.

在屠刀下,它用两只前脚跪下来,跪在地上,磨的骨头都露出来了,滴着血,眼泪直流。

Under the butcher's knife, she knelt down with her front feet on the ground, bones exposed, dripping with blood and tears.

屠宰场的工作人员心软了,暂时把它放在一边,过了一会儿,两三只小羊羔就生出来了。

Touched by the scene, the butcher put her aside for a while, and several lambs were delivered.

小羊的妈妈会因为感觉到死亡的来临而流泪,会为了想让自己的孩子生下来而下跪,它们,跟我们的妈妈有什么不一样呢?

As a mother she shed tears for the looming reaper and begged for mercy for her children. Is there any difference from what our mothers do?

人类自以为是地认为,这些海龟、鱼虾、泥鳅,这些鸟和蝴蝶,这些猪马牛羊,这些蚊蝇昆虫没有感觉、没有疼痛、没有抱怨;

Human beings take it for granted that aquatics, livestocks, birds and insects would neither pain nor complain;

我们残忍地划开它们的肚子,就像切一根黄瓜那样轻松。

As a result, we cruelly cut out their belly as easy as chopping a cucumber.

可是,当我们抓住它们的时候,分明能看见它们的挣扎,它们的恐惧,它们的哀求,那和我们面临疼痛与死亡时的面容,有什么不一样呢?

But when you seize them, you can spot their struggle, fear and plea at first sight, and who can distinguish such expressions from ours when faced with pain and death?

我们人类,是否可以换一个角度来想,假如是我们自己被捕抓,被关进笼子,被切成块、剁成末,放在火上烤,放在锅里炸,那时的我们,是什么感受?

As human beings we many take another perspective: suppose if you get arrested, caged, cut into pieces and roasted on the fire, what do you feel at the moment?

那时候我们会不会因疼痛而流泪?会不会因与家人分离而心碎?会不会因无端降临的死亡而仇恨?

Will you cry out of pain? Will it be a heartbreak losing your family? Will you be occupied with hatred due to the unexpected fatal destiny?

那时候,我们会不会也希望有一个更强大的力量来拯救我们?帮助我们逃离死亡,重获自由?

At that time, will you pray for a mighty power to save you out and help you escape from death and regain freedom?

很多动物出生在养殖场里,但这儿不是它们的家。它们出生,它们长大,唯一的下场就是被利用或被屠杀。

Many animals are born in the farm, but this is not their home. Their birth and growth only leads to slavery or slaughter.

它们的尸体,躺在每个菜市场里。它们不会说我们的语言,它们无力反抗,它们无处可逃,可它们的眼泪和我们的眼泪是一样的;

Their bodies will be lying in the market. They cannot speak our language, they are unable to resist, and they have nowhere to escape. Yet their tears and ours are the same;

它们渴望团聚、渴望自由、渴望远离痛苦和死亡的心,和我们是一样的。

Similar to us, they long for freedom, look forward to reunion, and dream of staying away from sorrow and death.

它们没有威胁谁或伤害谁,它们只有一个目的:活着。

They do not present a threat or damage, and they have a sole mission to live on.

科学的实验数据证明,我们人,不过分属于众多动物种类中灵长类的人科,我们,与黑猩猩99%的基因相同。

Scientists have countless proven experimental data defining human as hominidae in the family of primates, where we share 99% of our DNA with chimpanzees.

几百万年前,我们有着共同的祖先。

Dating back to some million years ago, we had a common ancestor.

人,也是动物,为什么要去伤害别的动物?

Being both human and animal, we have no ground to hurt other animals.

人,比很多动物强大,那我们为什么不用这些智慧和力量去保护那些比自己弱小的生命?

It is undeniable that we are stronger than many,Since we have the power to change nature based on our unparalleled intelligence.

What can we do for them?

我们,是时候做点什么了

当我把一条小鱼放回水里,它竟蹦出水面,像在跳舞,像在感谢我给了它又一次生命的机会。我也很开心。

When I put a small fish back into the water, it jumped out of the surface as if it was dancing and grateful to me for giving it another chance of living. I was also very happy hearing her words.

我想,如果我们每个人,哪怕只能救护一个生命,那么一定会有很多很多生命因得救而开心。

I think if each of us can save even only one life, there must be many more happy lives celebrating their rebirth.

哪怕只能帮助一个生命减少痛苦,我们的努力都不会白费,都是有意义的。

If we make even only a single living creature less suffering, our efforts will prove meaningful and never end in vain.

地球,是一个大大的家,缺少谁都不完整。

Our planet is a big home, and each family member is indispensable.

我们要知道,无论哪一种生命灭绝,对地球都是伤害。

Remember that the extinction of any species will cause damage to the earth.

我们要知道,一旦生态被人类自己破坏,所有的恶果最后也将由人类自己承担。

Remember that all the consequences of ecological destruction, which we’ll definitely be held accountable, will eventually be borne by ourselves.

“民为同胞,物与也。”意思是,所有的人类都是一母所生的同胞,万物与人都是同类。

“All the people are my brothers while all the creatures are my friends.” As described in the ancient poem, all human beings are siblings and we find everything our counterpart.

太阳每天升起,我们每天一起呼吸,一起成长,我们的生命彼此连接,生生不息。

The sun rises every day, and we live with other lives on the earth bathing in the sunlight, breathing and growing together, with our lives connected to each other now and ever.

我们希望活下去,活到寿终正寝,它们也是;

We want to live and die a natural death, so do they;

我们希望在痛苦无助的时候,有人可以保护和拯救我们,它们也是;

We hope that someone can save us and protect us from pain and helplessness, so do they;

我们希望能够自由自在地生活,没有伤害、没有恐惧,它们也是;

We expect to live freely: no harm, so do they;

所以,如果你遇到受伤的它们,请帮帮忙,给它们所需的呵护和治疗;

Therefore,if you find them injured, please help them, giving the necessary care and treatment;

如果你遇到在牢笼中、在屠刀下的它们,请帮帮忙,解救并还它们以自由,能活到命终自然死亡的痛苦会远远小于被生生屠宰的痛苦;

If you see them caged to be slaughtered, please save them, setting them free to live until nature’s bell tolls, which is far less scary than the terror of massacre;

如果你遇到擦肩而过的它们,请不要打扰,不要伤害,我们各有各的路可以走。

If you meet them passing by, please do not bother and hurt them, as we have our own way to go.

远离,是对它们最好的保护。

Keeping at a distance is the best protection.

还给它们自由吧,让它们留在大自然中,按照本来的样子去生存和生活。

Set them free and let them stay in nature, surviving and living in a natural way. With so many options。

人可以拥有的选择这么多,我们短暂的快乐,不必建立在其他生命的痛苦之上。

humans do not have to build our temporary ecstasy on the suffering of other lives.

给生命一个活下去的机会,这,就是我们能为这个星球付出的最大的善意。

Give life a chance to continue, and this will be our greatest goodwill for the planet.

因为我们为它们所做的一切,也终将回馈在我们自己的身上。

Because everything we do for them will eventually be fed back to ourselves.

“我们短暂的快乐,不必建立在其他生命的痛苦之上。——希阿荣博堪布”

Humans do not have to build our temporary ecstasy on the suffering of other lives. — Khenpo Sherab Sangpo

我们生活在这个星球上

每一种生命,都遵循着自己的运行轨迹

在这辈子死之前,生的机会或长或短,只有一次

我们人类,也是一样

求生,是每个生命基因的原始欲望

但,生命与生命并不平等

在漫长的进化中

我们人类逐渐踏过动物的尸体

站在食物链的最顶层

并自以为是地控制着整个世界的运行

以这个星球的主人自居

可是,其它的生命

难道不也是这个星球的主人吗?
