TOPLearn from Lord Mahavira Dec. 7, 2019

On Saturday, December 7, 2019, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly spent precious time with our fellow Quan Yin practitioners at the New Land Ashram in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. Master finished reading the story of Chandana from the book about the Venerated Lord Mahavira and expounded on the hardships the Great Saints and Enlightened Masters must endure in this world, and how, as spiritual practitioners, it’s best for us to live simpler lives. In Heaven’s wisdom, may we heed and learn from these valuable lessons as we continue to meditate diligently to truly know we are purely God’s children.

TOPMaya is gone! Nov. 24, 2019

On Sunday, November 24, 2019, at the New Land in Taiwan, also known as Formosa, our Most Compassionate Supreme Master Ching Hai shared the greatest news of all eons, for all the worlds and universes! “Maya is gone!” “The force of karma is gone!” “The negative force is also gone!” “I am just the commander in chief. Thanks all the Godses, all the Universal Beings, Who put all Their power together; otherwise, it won’t work.” “You will see. It takes a few more weeks to really feel the effect. You will see the change, bigger changes, better changes, and you will feel more light in yourself, easier to meditate, calmer.” We are in awe and forever grateful to our Ultimate Master, Lord of All Worlds, and the Universal Beings for delivering us from the clutches of maya, the negative force and the force of karma. May our joyous praises, our bountiful appreciation resound throughout the universes as all beings celebrate this epoch-making victory!

The Fry Family – Crafting Food for Change Since 1991, Part 2 of 3

In almost 30 years of running a business, Mr. Fry’s role has changed and evolved over time. He generously shared these changes with us. What is the future of food? Mr. Fry explains that there will be many changes concerning the marketing of foods and its consumption in the future. “There’s a couple of bad things going on with food and that’s plastic. And of course, you know, meat and animal products. So, consciousness is growing in the world. And I think that as we get deeper and deeper into this movement or evolution of humankind, supermarkets will change. We will become more natural with everything. We will have less packaging, things will not be able to be transported long distances and therefore have to be in plastic. Things will change and people will stop buying bottled water. I think those things are gonna change without any doubt. There’s no doubt at all, in my mind.”

The Essence of a Buddha, Part 4 of 5 Feb. 28, 2005

All the qualities that you pointed out from all the different brothers, they are good qualities. They are excellent qualities. So I do hope that they keep them, and I do hope that you imitate them. First, you imitate by outward repetition, later, it will become your nature. And the Buddha will not feel that he’s a Buddha. Sometimes he does, but sometimes not. The ones who become Buddhas, they had already been practicing before. And they… like not from a very low level, so it’s easier. And some of the persons had been my disciples before, but they had not reached the Fifth Level. And this guy had been a disciple of somebody else before. And I just continue to push him up a little bit. I mean not this life, but other lifetimes. He came from like Third Level. He came down here to advance his spiritual grade. That’s their special purpose. They come here just for that. So you can see they’re very devoted. Just one way to go.

Love of Eternal Summer: Exploring the Spiritual Treasures in Shakespeare’s Works, Part 2 of 2

In today's program, we'll continue to explore the spiritual wisdom in Shakespeare's timeless masterpieces. By drawing on the pastoral, Shakespeare reminds city-dwelling audiences of the richly edifying realizations that are born out of being in the great outdoors. "And this our life, exempt from public haunt, Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, Sermons in stones, and good in everything." Shakespeare also applied his unparalleled linguistic talent to enshrine timeless values such as cherishing life, acting with high moral principle, reflecting inwardly, showing clemency, and never losing hope. In his history and tragedy plays, Shakespeare wrote about wars not only to illustrate the ramifications of killing karma, but also to propagate his ideal for a peaceful world.

Love of Eternal Summer: Exploring the Spiritual Treasures in Shakespeare’s Works, Part 1 of 2

Known as Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare was one of the world’s greatest poets, playwrights, actors, and directors in the Renaissance era. Shakespeare’s lines have the magical effect of enlightening our minds to the truth that we know in our hearts. His beautiful and imaginative expressions give us insights into human life and its ephemeral nature. “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. …Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.” More crucially, he shows us how with love, wisdom,, and humility, these obstacles can be prevailed over.

Where Does Supreme Master Ching Hai Live? Part 2 of 6

Today, we’ll visit more of Her early homes in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. After being invited to give lectures throughout Taiwan (Formosa), Supreme Master Ching Hai sometimes traveled to Pingtung, staying in Hao Cha Village. There, Master stayed in a tent and cave, imparting to initiates Her extensive knowledge of living in the wilderness. At the Laiyi Center, Supreme Master Ching Hai lived in a small cabin that was expanded and had a terrace added after Master left. The size of the whole house is only 7.4 by 9.6 meters. In Miaoli, perhaps the living quarters that Supreme Master Ching Hai likes the most is Her cave, two by two-two meters by two meters. Supreme Master Ching Hai often reminds us about the benefits of a modest lifestyle, and how residing in a small house is one of the best ways to simplify our lives….

I want to tell you there's another Buddha who sits among you. (Wow!) This time you guess, OK? Whomever you pointed before, I want to ask you why, OK? Why? (He is very patient and tolerant.) But that is not the only requirement. I'm teaching you by explaining to you the quality you admired, whether it's enough or not to have it as a mark of a Buddha. Just qualities, just character. But we need more than that. Lots of points. When we say one level... It's not a number. It's a vast dimension of spiritual attainment. I'm telling. This guy. (Wow!) I knew it before he came already. I asked for a special ID. But he needed a little push, you know, afterward. There! We celebrate again!

Bribris-indigenous of Costa Rica

The proud Bribri cultural legacy passes from one generation to the next through an oral tradition. This indigenous group has a strong bond with Mother Earth. Their language is called Bribri, which approximately 60% of the residents of the Talamanca Bribri Indigenous Reserve speak. Within the Bribri, people belong to different clans, and membership is based on the clan affiliation of one’s mother. Today, the Bribri remain an agricultural group, and besides corn, raise tubers, cacao, bananas, pejibaye, yucca, rice, and beans. Their belief regarding their origin as a people has agricultural roots. There is a belief among the Bribri that all are equal and that humans are not above the trees or water in the forest in terms of importance. As a result, nature is treated in a reverential manner.

Prayers and Meditations by Bahá’u’lláh: Sections VIII to XV, Part 2 of 2

All praise be to Thee, O my God! Thou behold my helplessness and poverty, and bear witness unto my woes and trials. How long wilt Thou abandon me among Thy servants? Suffer me to ascend into Thy presence. The power of Thy might bears me witness! …I beseech Thee, O Thou Who art my Companion in my lowliness, to rain down upon Thy loved ones from the clouds of Thy mercy that which will cause them to be satisfied with Thy pleasure, and will enable them to turn unto Thee and to be detached from all else except Thee. …From everlasting Thou hast been clothed with transcendent greatness and power, with unspeakable majesty and glory. There is no God beside Thee, the Almighty, the All-Glorious, the Ever-Forgiving.

Another UK-based group called Surge. Surge started “The Official Animal Rights March” in 2016 that has since become an annual event held not just in London, UK, but also around our world.

The Bahá’i Faith rests on three core principles: unity of God, unity of religion, and unity of humankind. Prayers and Meditations by Bahá’u’lláh. "Magnified be Thy name, O Lord my God! I know not what the water is with which Thou hast created me, or what the fire Thou hast kindled within me, or the clay by which Thou hast kneaded me. The restlessness of every sea hath been stilled, but not the restlessness of this Ocean which moves at the bidding of the winds of Thy will. The flame of every fire hath been extinguished except the Flame which the hands of Thine omnipotence have kindled, and whose radiance Thou hast, by the power of Thy name, shed abroad before all that are in Thy heaven and all that are on Thy earth. As the tribulations deepen, it waxes hotter and hotter. Behold, then, O my God, how Thy Light hath been compassed with the onrushing winds of Thy decree, how the tempests that blow and beat upon it from every side have added to its brightness and increased its splendor. For all this let Thee be praised."

Where Does Supreme Master Ching Hai Live? Part 1 of 6

Over several decades, while tirelessly travelling around the world to spread the Truth and elevate the planet, Supreme Master Ching Hai has stayed in simple abodes known only to a handful of people. You may be as curious as we were to know what these homes are like. With Master's gracious permission, we are privileged to present some glimpses into Her private living quarters in various countries, where She resided during different periods. Along the way, we'll also share related touching stories, which may give us insights into Master's caring and harmonious way of life. In the 1980s, after returning from Her quest to find the Truth in India, Supreme Master Ching Hai officially began Her mission in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. Not having a place to stay at first, Supreme Master Ching Hai and Her renunciates lived in tents with few belongings, camped by riversides, and moved from place to place….

Building A Peaceful Planet for All Beings –– with Animal Justice Champion “Animal Rebellion,” Part 1 of 2

Animal Rebellion was established in June 2019 by eighteen leading social justice groups in the UK, broadly known as the Rebellion Alliance. Both groups, Animal Rebellion and Extinction Rebellion, plead with the government to declare climate change as an emergency, to act with urgency to slash emissions to “net-zero” by 2025, and to set up a citizens’ assembly with legislative power. "Animal Rebellion’s goal is a world where all animals, all beings are free from exploitation and oppression.… We all need a stable climate to survive. And Animal agriculture is the leading cause. …So, the only way we can address the climate emergency is by first addressing the animal emergency, and the strategy that we’ll be using will be non-violent direct-action civil disobedience. When we do these actions, we really force the public to listen, and to hear this narrative that we are telling."

Maybe I was born a Hungarian some other day, because I love (vegan) goulash very much. When I was alone, that was what I cooked. Well, I didn’t think it was goulash per se, but I cooked like that, similar, all the time. It’s a normal Chinese restaurant. And I just told her: “Cook whatever. All of us are vegetarian (vegan). We don’t even taste fish or sauce, meat sauce or anything; so please just bring anything that’s pure vegetarian (vegan). Please wash the cooking utensils.” And they did exactly. It tasted so good! It didn’t stink. And it tasted really good! They cooked with love! I was so pleased, I gave them double the price. I always love the Chinese. When they are abroad, they have a lot of hardship. Strange land, strange language. So I always, whenever I can buy things from the Chinese shop, I always buy.
