With diverse flora and fauna, magnificent natural landscapes, and an ecological biosphere that supports life,this wondrous planet is our earthly home.
From our animal co-inhabitants to the lush rainforests and life-giving soil,we cherish all these as gifts from the Creator. It is a common theme in the world’s major faiths that during our temporary stay here,we should be good stewards of Mother Earth.
Throughout the years, Supreme Master Ching Hai has shared the message of leading a balanced life while following a spiritual path.Not only must we nourish our spirits,but we share the responsibility to care for nature and our fellow beings.
In light of recent scientific evidence stressing the grave state of our planet caused by climate change, Supreme Master Ching Hai affirms the important message she has noted for over the past two decades:
we must be vegetarian,meaning an animal-free diet,and practice sustainable living.Today we present to you Supreme Master Ching Hai’s discussion on climate change with our Association members titled, “Be Veg to Save Ourselves and the Planet,” delivered during an international gathering on February 21, 2009.
