In the afternoon, beside Panshan Reservoir of Tianjin, Master Yanpei led all beings to free captive animals while praying for them. Thousands of aquatic lives were released into the river while being back to nature and getting free. Freeing captive animals is a kind of benevolence which the Buddha teaches us to devote ourselves to. It is also the supreme dharma-gate to remove obstacle, cultivating a compassionate mind and collecting merits and virtues.  ( Writing by Zouxiang / Photos by Master Yanwan )
