Insightful Films on the Afterlife: “Astral City: A Spiritual Journey” and “The Mothers of Chico Xavier”

Chico Xavier was a well-known Brazilian philanthropist and medium in Spiritism. The first film, “Astral City: A Spiritual Journey,” is based on one of his best-selling books with the same name. Through the book, the spirit of Dr. André Luiz tells of his experiences, lessons, and spiritual awakening in the astral city that he stays in after leaving Earth. Our second film is the 2011 drama, “The Mothers of Chico Xavier,” inspired by the true stories from Marcel Souto Maior's book. The thought-provoking film reminds us of the ephemeral nature of life, while illustrating that there is life after death and that our every action has a consequence.

Aviral Pokhrel: The Boy Who Can “See” Using Touch and Smell

Twelve-year-old Aviral Pokhrel of Nepal has an unusual ability. He can see colors and objects through his senses of touch and smell. I try to feel using my hands, and if I’m unable to identify things clearly with my hands, then I try to smell them. And based on their smell, I can tell what they are. Sometimes it just comes to me, then based on that I say what it is and it matches, too. And when we practice even more and more deeply, and go even deeper, we may be able to just hold a book in our hands, just shake it to even figure out what’s there on which page number of the book.

Filled with adventure, happiness, and love, “Ratatouille” and “Stuart Little” are delightful movies that remind us to cherish the wonderful, unique qualities of every being, small or big, human or non-human.

Learning to Communicate with Plants: Interview with Mr. Alexandre Ferran, Part 1 of 3

On today’s program we’ll speak with accomplished actor, director, and author - Mr. Alexandre Ferran, of Paris, France. Through his thorough research, he has also become a renowned expert in understanding the ability of plants to communicate through music and words. “At the beginning of the 20th century there was an Indian called Mr. Bose who created a device called the crescograph, which made it possible to read in an accelerated way the movements of plants.” “In fact, in science, what we notice is that all the people who are plant lovers are able to demonstrate that they have a conscience, and emotions, and the capacity for understanding, of intelligence, etc.” Plants can also understand and respond to what people say. As Mr. Ferran shows us how plants can use the communication device to communicate through the language of music.

His Holiness Marpa Lotsawa (vegetarian): Remarkable Tibetan Buddhist Master, Part 2 of 4

While following Mahasiddha Sri Naropa, Marpa Lotsawa received permission to study with Naropa’s disciple, the great Mahasiddha Maitripa, who became Marpa’s second main Guru. At the Radiant Flower Monastery on Blazing Fire Mountain, Marpa received two important traditions from Maitripa. The first is the Vajrayana practice of singing spontaneous songs of experience and realization, known as dohas. The teachings of Mahamudra is the second tradition that Marpa received from Maitripa. Afterwards, Marpa travelled home to Lhotrak, where He was greeted by the locals with respect. Meanwhile, He continued to work to support His family as well as His growing followers. After his son Tarma Dode was born, Marpa Lotsawa went to India a second time, and for the next six years, He continued to study with Masters Naropa and Maitripa. As He was preparing to leave, Naropa instructed Him to return to India for a third time to complete His training.

“Bee” Caring and Sharing

00:16:24
Kids' Wonderland

“Bee” Caring and Sharing

In our bee family, we share what we are good at with one another, because it feels great when we give and receive. We may be tiny compared to the rest of the animal kingdom, but we surely have a big job to do: pollination. We pollinate the flowers of crops and fruit trees so they can bear fruit. Without us, there wouldn’t be any fruits and seeds, the plants wouldn’t be able to reproduce, animals wouldn’t have any food, and many people would go hungry. Because of this decline, harvests have been smaller in recent years, meaning less food for both animals and humans. The good news is that there are ways to help bolster the population of bees. For example, you can grow a garden that’s bee-friendly, right in your own backyard. Plant-based foods are the healthiest for the human body. Best of all, fruit and vegetables have seeds, and each seed can grow into a whole new plant if given the chance. You can share or swap extra seeds with friends and neighbors and enjoy the fruit of one another’s labor later on.

Cultural Traces Around the World

The Open House Culture of Malaysia

Fully embracing their multi-culture identity, Malaysians have a unique custom called, “open house,” which means during important cultural and religious festivals, they would open their houses to welcome not only friends and families, but also strangers. Through feasting and chatting together, cultural barriers are broken and new friendships are formed. Though 60% of the population are Muslims, national holidays such as Christmas, Chinese New Year, Deepavali, and native harvesting festivals are also celebrated, alongside various Islamic holidays such as the holy month of Ramadan, Eid-ul Fitr, and Eid-ul Adha. Now let’s take a look at how Malaysians celebrate some of their other holidays. His Excellency, Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, actively promotes harmonious existence among citizens of different races and backgrounds. “Malaysia was built on the foundations of tolerance, goodwill, mutual respect, the readiness of giving and sharing, selflessness, and a desire to make sacrifices for the sake of the country.” “Without such traits, Malaysia would not have grown into a developed country, which is capable of giving its people all the comforts and progress it has today.”

The Winter Sleep of Animals

Animal World: Our Co-inhabitants

The Winter Sleep of Animals

Winter is the coldest time of the year, when the days are shorter and the nights are longer. It is a season of rest, and a period to conserve, rather than expend, energy. So, what is hibernation? It is like a long, deep sleep for animals and a time. Animals prepare to enter this state by eating a lot during the summer and autumn seasons to store fat to last them throughout the winter. Did you know that a pregnant American black bear could give birth during hibernation? She does not even need to wake herself to take care of her cubs. Instead, she can nurse her babies for months from the stored fat she has on reserve. Did you know that some animals in hot climates also undergo a form of hibernation? This is called estivation. Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke about the spiritual purpose of hibernation for animals during an August 23, 2009 lecture given in France. “There are some spiritual reasons. You see, because every day, animals, they’re also busy looking for food and taking care of their family, and so during wintertime, they take advantage of the natural cycle and they go into hibernation; they sleep in winter to recover their spiritual strength, apart from other things.”

Moeraki Boulders: Giants' Bowling Balls

One of my favorite spots is Koekohe Beach, where we may see its magically impressive Moeraki Boulders. These outstanding boulders are an unusual geological phenomenon that have been millions and millions of years in the making. Now famous, they have entertained countless travelers and have been playfully dubbed the “Bowling Balls of the Giants,” “Alien’s Brains,” “Dinosaur Eggs,” and the “Stonehenge of New Zealand.” The biggest of the boulders at Koekohe Beach, New Zealand, weigh up to seven tonnes. The Moeraki Boulders of New Zealand reach up to two meters in diameter. Each boulder is adorned with unique geometrical patterns like the reptilian scales of a dragon. For hundreds of years, they have ignited the imaginations of many sightseers who have come to this otherwise solitary stretch of New Zealand coastline. There are 50 boulders remaining in Koekohe Beach, which are now protected by New Zealand law. Since 1971, laws in New Zealand were passed to ensure that the unique Moeraki Boulders be protected, just like other national treasures including us Hooker’s sea lions.

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 1 of 2

IPCC is the body established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide policymakers with regular scientific assessments concerning climate change. It was the recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for its work on climate change. The newly released second Special Report on Climate Change and Land brings revitalized hope with its wise, clear policy suggestions. The key message of the report is that in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, better land use, halting deforestation, and cutting down on food waste must be the priorities. In a 2009 conference, the world-renowned humanitarian and spiritual Master, Supreme Master Ching Hai, shared with attendees, “So, to cool the planet most quickly, we have to stop consuming meat in order to stop the livestock-raising industry, and thus stop greenhouse gases, methane and other toxic gases from the animal industry.”

Angels in the Operating Room: Tricia Barker's Near Death Experience, Part 4 of 4

On today’s program, we’ll learn more about Ms. Tricia Barker’s lessons from Heaven. Ms. Barker believes that overcoming fear is one of life’s greatest challenges. In the classroom, she teaches students one technique for doing so. “And it’s generally fear that prevents us from being in that flow of God. And I just began to show them, ‘You have other options.’ So, I could teach them how to be different, how to look at this world differently.” Through her near-death experience, Ms. Barker came to understand the inter-connectedness of all beings on Earth. She shares how, in each moment, we can help make the world a better place. “And I think that’s maybe one of the most important things we can do is to spread that love and that light across this planet. You can help in more situations than you think you're capable of helping.” “I think near-death experiences help people have greater faith in god. But I wish everybody could every day feel the love of God, feel the energetic experience of God, because there's nothing better.”

Planting Benevolent Seeds in Children's Hearts – Nepal's Shree Lho Basic School, Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue to discover additional attributes of this institution and the great works of the teachers who look after youngsters. The Reverend Sonam Chhiling Lama shared with us the importance of daily prayers in student life. “We always do our morning prayers and worship. The main purpose of morning prayers and rites is to make our students wiser and to pay attention to the righteous teachings that guide us.” One joyful result of the school’s establishment is that it has brought local villages closer together. “We sometimes organize community service events. During these events, some people come from the upper hills, while some from the lower villages and they gather together and peacefully socialize during these programs, and cooperate with each other. This is how this school has contributed to our community.” Currently, the Shree Lho Basic School teaches through the 7th grade. However, it will soon expand and eventually serve students through the 10th grade.

Extraordinary African Ostriches

Today, you will see what makes us ostriches such a unique and exquisite bird, and one to be treasured here on our loving planet. Our incredible eyesight is a great advantage for detecting anything suspicious. Although we can’t fly, we can sustain a running speed of over 50 kilometers or 30 miles per hour for more than an hour. We are the fastest bird on land and the speediest animal on two feet. We use our wings like a rudder, adjusting them to help us turn at high speeds, giving us a dainty running style that any ballerina would envy. Oregon State University, USA, has also seen the potential of our superior leg design and developed a stable, all-terrain bipedal robot. We lay the largest eggs in the world! In the Guinness Book of Records, the biggest recorded egg weighed 5 pounds and 11.36 ounces, or 2.6 kilograms. We can live for over 40 years, and are very adaptable, eating many types of seeds and plants, with the ability to travel long distances to forage for food.

While in Heaven, Ms. Barker learned many lessons, including a very important one: “See people’s hearts, know their goodness and be different in that way.” Next, Ms. Barker shares her incredible experience communicating with God as she learned about her life’s purpose. “I saw that I had to be a teacher. And I had to return, and I had to teach others to live and love, and not in fear.”
