Buddhists pray before releasing lobsters back into the ocean during "Chokhor Duchen" in Gloucester
Buddhists pray before releasing lobsters back into the ocean during "Chokhor Duchen", or the anniversary of Buddha's turning of the Dharma Wheel, in Gloucester, Massachusetts August 3, 2011. The group of Buddhists released about 500 lobsters that were caught by commercial lobstermen, after buying the lobsters from a wholesaler who would otherwise have sold the crustaceans to restaurants. Buddhists practice liberation of animals due for slaughter as an expression of compassion for the welfare of all beings and to accumulate karmic merit. It is believed the merits of such acts are multiplied if they are performed on Chokhor Duchen. REUTERS/Brian Snyder (UNITED STATES - Tags: ANIMALS ANNIVERSARY RELIGION)
