Love animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy untroubled. Don't harass them, don't deprive them of their happiness, don't work against God's intent. Man, do not pride yourself on superiority to animals; they are without sin, and you, with your greatness, defile the earth by your appearance on it, and leave the traces of your foulness after you-alas, it is true of almost every one of us!

People think that detachment and loving kindness or compassion do not live in the same consciousness. But in reality, a detached person has deeper love and higher commitments than an attached person. In attachment there is always self-interest, ego, and personality; and love cannot exist in its essence with self-interest, ego, and personality concerns.
