Today, Iet’s travel to Kathmandu, Nepal, to meet a saintly social worker, Mr. Ram Bahadur Neupane. Gentle and kind, he has dedicated nearly a decade of his life to rescue distressed and neglected cows wandering the streets of Nepal.

Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, upon learning of Mr. Neupane’s noble efforts, gratefully offered: “US$30,000 and the Shining World Compassion Award.” “I believe the Earth is a common home for everyone. Everyone should be allowed to live. We want to provide shelter and protection for everyone, from the elderly fathers, mothers, mentally challenged people, from our brothers and sisters living in the streets, to street dogs and to all the beings. This is our broader vision.”

Veg Philosophy: A Rational Quest for Peaceful Existence

Today, in celebrating November 1, World Vegan Day, we invite you to hear what the great philosophers and ethicists have to say about the life choices concerning food, animal rights, and the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. "To affirm life is to deepen, to make more inward, and to exalt the will-to-live. At the same time, the man who has become a thinking being feels a compulsion to give to every will-to-live the same reverence for life that he gives to his own." "That a man was not born a carnivorous animal but born to live on the fruits and herbs that the earth grows…. The basis of my vegetarianism is not physical, but moral."
