In Shining World Compassion Award News from Canada …
Dr. Cliff Redford is a remarkable veterinarian based in Markham, Ontario, who offers medical care to animals through his local practice and travels abroad. With a focus on areas of greatest need, Dr. Redford has volunteered his expertise globally, including in Egypt, Greece, India, and Jamaica, as well as in a wildlife refuge near Markham. He shares some of these inspiring interventions for animals via the YouTube documentary series, “Dr. Cliff Worldwide Vet” that is made with the assistance of his daughter Emily. In speaking of his passion of working on behalf of animals, Dr. Redford stated, “We share this world with them, and we need to do what we can to help them out.” “It’s not really difficult treating those different animals but it’s definitely more exciting and it’s a fun challenge. And let’s be honest. I’m working with veterinarians there in India as well, and while they may not have the same surgical skills as I do, they understand those wild animals better than I do. So, we’re able to work together and do some pretty amazing things. It’s been very exciting.” Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai thankfully offered the Shining World Compassion Award to Dr. Cliff Redford, “with gratitude, love and a humble contribution of US$15,000 to support this noble work. May Heaven bless you and all involved richly.”
Our Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association members in Toronto, Canada, were pleased to present the Award letter, crystalline plaque, Master’s monetary gift and Her publications and DVDs to Dr. Redford. “For over two decades, you have lived the life of a noble saint as an extraordinary vet who cares. You have also provided free animal care in Jamaica, Greece and Canada, saying, ‘Veterinary services are desperately needed in a lot of under-serviced areas around the world. Any vacation time I get, I do volunteering as a vet.’” “From the bottom of my heart to the Supreme Master Ching Hai, I want to say thank You for this recognition. It’s an amazing honor. And all the work that She does and that entire [Supreme Master Ching Hai International] Association does is a true inspiration. And I greatly, greatly appreciate it. The donation that She made to the organization is going to allow us to help even more animals worldwide. And it is just an extreme inspiration that She has given me, without a doubt. Thank You very much.”
Our heartfelt congratulations, Dr. Cliff Redford. May all animals flourish through the continued gentle care bestowed by you and your staff, in the healing comfort of the Divine. For the full presentation of the Shining World Compassion Award to Dr. Cliff Redford, please tune in to our Shining World Award program at a later date.
France assists Palestine in responding to COVID-19.
The French Development Agency, the French government’s public development bank that promotes sustainable projects globally, is granting €1.3 million to help protect and enhance the Palestinian people’s health following a second wave of the coronavirus. Specifically, the funds will be used to improve medical institutions’ capacity to treat COVID-19 patients in the short-term, while the medium-term goal is to make the Palestinian health system more resilient. The initiative, part of France’s COVID-19 – Health in Common plan, will also provide emergency financing for equipment and medicine. Our esteemed thanks, France, for your generosity and consideration. May our soulful Palestinian brothers and sisters enjoy wellness and greet increasingly peaceful, secure and joyous tomorrows, in Allah’s infinite blessing.
Up next, young Afghan women design low-cost ventilator for COVID-19 patients. We’ll just take a little time to thank the knowledgeable endocrinologists, who specialize in restoring hormonal balance, which is important for our metabolism and many other physical functions. Will return with more excellent news after these messages here on Supreme Master Television.
Hi, joyful friends, I’m Akino the vegan Takin. People ask me what products I use to have such glowing fur. I say, “a vegan diet!” Try it yourself. Here’s a gardening tip: add wood ash to improve the soil of alkaline-loving plants such as kale, rosemary, peas, broccoli and lavender. This substance is commonly used to increase soil pH levels, and contains large amounts of calcium, potassium, magnesium and other trace minerals, which are essential for plant health. Not only that, this material can help repel pests and eliminate disease. You can mix wood ash thoroughly into soil before planting, blend it into your compost pile, or lightly sprinkle it on a garden bed after heavy rain. Thank you for your attention, and much love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. Here’s the weather around our beautiful globe.
Young Afghan women build ventilator to treat COVID-19 patients.
The all-female Afghan Robotics Team, with seven teenage members, has developed a low-tech medical ventilator from used parts, including a car windshield wiper motor, motorcycle chains and various sensors. Built in less than four months, the device is partially based on a design from the United States’ Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with guidance from Harvard University experts. The lightweight, battery-operated instrument costs about US$700 a unit to produce, compared to US$20,000 for a traditional ventilator, and is being tested by health authorities. If approved, it will be used in Afghan hospitals and the design will be shared with the World Health Organization. The team has previously won a number of international awards. Our applause and appreciation, Afghan Robotics Team, for your amazing achievement. May your innovative tool soon be available to help to save many lives, in Allah’s mercy.
Portugal to close last coal-fired power plant.
Portugal’s electrical utility company EDP recently announced its only coal power facility will be closed next year, two years earlier than originally planned as “part of EDP group’s decarbonization strategy.” The European Union’s carbon market played a role in the early closure as the cost of CO2 emissions permits has been rising, while the price of renewables has been declining. Portugal, a Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion recipient, is the third European nation to become coal-free earlier than scheduled, after Austria and Sweden this year. Thank you, EDP, for ending your coal power production and way to go, Portugal, on your environmentally- kind advancements. May your nation’s carbon-neutral goals be realized soon for your bright citizens to enjoy cleaner air and clearer skies, in Heaven’s radiant gaze.
Equitable global distribution of future COVID-19 vaccine supported.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a Shining World Compassion Award recipient, has provided US$150 million to vaccine manufacturer Serum Institute of India to distribute a COVID-19 vaccine after regulatory approval. The donation, made through the financing organization Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, will help make 100 million doses of a potential vaccine available to at least 92 countries at less than US$3 per dose, ensuring people in developing nations will have easier access to the life-protecting immunization. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has now contributed US$500 million towards the development of public health measures and treatments in response to the pandemic. Bill and Melinda Gates are both Shining World Compassion Award recipients. Our sincere appreciation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Gavi and Serum Institute of India, for your noble contributions. May Heaven’s forever grace bring humanity health and soundness.
Coming up, new vegan protein line launches in China. We’ll spend a few moments to pray to God for forgiveness and our spiritual deliverance. Supreme Master Television will return in just a moment with more comforting news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Uplifting News for a Gentler World.
United States agricultural company rolls out vegan protein items in China.
Agri-giant Cargill has launched the PlantEver range in China, starting with plant-based chicken nuggets and burger patties. Manufactured locally in Chuzhou, Anhui Province, they are available online at leading e-commerce platform Tmall and will soon be sold by other online and physical stores. The company also released a plant-based scallop sandwich and chicken-alternative tender in over 600 Lawson convenience stores across Shanghai, Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces. Wonderful news, Cargill, on the release of your vegan products in China. May your worldwide plant-based expansion continue as the vegan protein supplier market grows to serve an ever-increasing demand for animal-free foods, in God’s peace.
Southeastern Spanish town to protect stray animals.
San Fulgencio in Alicante province has contracted with the company Anquimar to oversee the rescue and adoption of the municipality’s homeless and stray animals. Anquimar will take them in and provide veterinary care, vaccinations, neutering and more. The animals’ pictures will be available on a website and social media to facilitate checking if a lost companion has been located, or finding a future new best friend who is available for adoption. San Fulgencio’s policy is that all shelters must preserve the lives of animal residents, and citizens are encouraged to adopt rather than buying from breeders. Kindhearted San Fulgencio, thank you for ensuring your town’s loving cats and dogs will have a better chance to find homes. We pray that all regions of the world will implement similar measures to ensure unsheltered companion animals are safe and cared for, in the nurturing embrace of the Providence.
Let's have a hearty laugh together with the joke of the day. It’s called “Lucky.”

“John will be lucky, as it is Bill who will marry you.”
And now we have a heartline from Thiên An in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam:
Dear Master, Supreme Master TV team and all the viewers, I thank Heartline on Supreme Master Television for being a means for me to express my feelings to our Beloved Master. I would like to thank You for coming into my life. Knowing You was a miracle for me. Thanks to You, I changed a lot regarding realization as well as my outlook on life. My life is full of miracles and blessings. Every joy and suffering has its own life’s lesson. When facing loneliness, loss, and desires, I think I did not meditate deeply enough to understand everything thoroughly. But due to meditation, I have become calmer than before. I hope to achieve the level of tranquility that I have always wanted. I am very grateful to Master for Your presence here on Earth because of Your Love for this suffering world. The Quan Yin Method is a good medicine for my mentality to help it calm down, to help me control my anger and a lot of other things. Having You, my life is as if it was blossoming. Now, I am happier and loving this life more than before. Thank You, Master. I am infinitely grateful to You. I am living in bliss and enjoying blessings, and I no longer feel resentment anymore because of my bitterness before. Because of this reason, I cherish my present life and feel satisfied. Dear Master, I love You and Your Supreme Master Television. I love Your teachings; because of it, my temperament has become more harmonious than before. With love, Thiên An from Âu Lạc (Vietnam)
Gentle Thiên An, Thank you for sharing your touching heartline with us. We hope that you continue to progress and flourish on your spiritual journey ahead. Like many, we, too, are deeply grateful to have Master’s presence here on Earth and feel extremely lucky to live in this special time on the planet. So happy to hear that your life is expanding in a positive direction and you are living in bliss and blessings. May you and the fine people of Âu Lạc (Vietnam) continue to grow in tranquility and harmony, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. Master says: “Peaceful Thiên An, it is good to hear that you are becoming more placid day by day. Please diligently keep up with your meditation as taught at the time of initiation. Lots of love to you and beautiful Âu Lạc (Vietnam).”
