RASTA Sanctuary: A Lifelong Safe Haven for Animals, Part 1 of 2 (INT)

RASTA stands for “Rescue And Sanctuary for Threatened Animals” and focuses on aiding abandoned and abused farm animals as well as inspiring compassion for all our animal friends through advocacy and public outreach. For almost 20 years, RASTA has taken beings of all shapes and sizes who need a home. If you ever visit this place of love, you get more than just a chance to meet the cute denizens. The kind volunteers also provide all visitors with a 30-minute presentation on the sanctuary and veganism. “Because in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter how much land or how much money you have, you can’t rescue them all but you can make a much larger impact by educating people about veganism and about, just making kinder choices in life and things like that.”

Monty Roberts – Trust-Based Horse Trainer, Part 2 of 4 (INT)

Monty Roberts – Trust-Based Horse Trainer, Part 2 of 4 (INT)

Today, we will see how Mr. Roberts approaches a horse that he has never previously trained. The moment he calls “Join-Up” is a wonder, with the horse voluntarily choosing Mr. Roberts as his or her leader and companion. Mr. Roberts has used his Join-Up techniques successfully with thousands of horses. Join-Up is also humane, unlike the traditional method of “breaking” horses to the rider’s will, and a much faster way to gain a horse’s cooperation by comparison.

Monty Roberts – Trust-Based Horse Trainer, Part 3 of 4 (INT)

The other thing I would like to say about gaining trust is that no matter what you do, or learn to do with your anatomy, when you strike, when you cause pain, in any way to that animal, you’re breaking that trust. They were racing horses with whips. And the horse actually runs slower when the are whipped. And if you think about it, if you took the Olympic foot runner, human, and whipped him, you would take his mind off of his job of running, and he would run slower. Why can’t we figure that out? If we can just try to give the horse those things that encourage them to go.

Monty Roberts – Trust-Based Horse Trainer, Part 4 of 4 (INT)

And we are receiving as much as 175% improvement in their psychological outlook in 3 days. Mr. Roberts has worked with hundreds of people to help them heal.

Winchester Lemen: Robust Reuse of Plastic Refuse

Mr. Winchester Lemen has a vision for the plastic we may use just once and then dump. This innovator has created adorable and sturdy chairs, school desks, and tables out of plastic refuse. For 6 years, he worked on developing a way to make a product out of soft plastics, particularly plastic wrappers, such as detergent and shampoo sachets. This material always ended up in landfills as no one else in the recycling industry wanted it. Not only did Mr. Lemen succeed, what he perfected is considered a major step forward in plastic recycling technology.

Brave Protector of Marine Life: Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Part 3 of 3 (INT)

Back in 1979, if you said the word “vegan,” nobody even knew what you were talking about - from the planet Vega or something. Nobody knew what you were talking about. So, now, that’s pretty much universal. And the amazing thing about veganism is the incredible surge, about a 600% increase in the last couple of years in people choosing veganism as an alternative. And I think that’s going to grow because one of the things I’ve discovered over the years from social movements is that it doesn’t take a majority to carry out anything.

RASTA Sanctuary: A Lifelong Safe Haven for Animals, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

In January 2001, this amazing charity was founded by a benevolent, vegan woman named Lucie Cerny. Team RASTA finds that the most important aspect of rescue work is information-sharing and advocacy. On the RASTA website, you can find a blog that covers topics ranging from how to start an animal sanctuary to veganism. “I would love to see a day when animals are not used for their body parts and that we could just live in harmony with other species on this planet, and stop destroying our planet and the animals, and human health also. Be Vegan, Make Peace.”

Planting Benevolent Seeds in Children's Hearts – Nepal's Shree Lho Basic School, Part 1 of 2

Planting Benevolent Seeds in Children's Hearts – Nepal's Shree Lho Basic School, Part 1 of 2

The Reverend Acharya Sonam Dorje Rinpoche built the Shree Lho Basic School to take care of orphans as well as underprivileged and marginalized children by providing food and board while they receive an education. He also wished to incorporate the fundamental teachings of Buddhism into the courses so the children could receive moral guidance through this ancient wisdom to cultivate love and compassion. As it is a spiritual boarding school, teachers play an influential role in making Buddhism’s teachings close to the children’s hearts, along with providing attentive care to them and encouraging healthy lifestyle habits. "This is a very rural area, here almost 80-90% of the local population is uneducated. As these people here have their own hardships, and didn’t get a chance to be educated in their time. They wish to have hope for their coming generations to get a good education and do better in life." "The people residing in this school, located in a Buddhist area, do not slaughter animals for food, and hence everybody eats vegetarian food in this school. Conservation of animals, such as these is also emphasized in the books."

Hillside Animal Sanctuary: A Countryside Paradise

00:13:29

Hillside Animal Sanctuary: A Countryside Paradise

In 1995, Wendy Valentine established the Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Frettenham, Norwich, UK, after seeing the enormous suffering of egg-laying hens in the poultry industry. From the beginning, Ms. Valentine has campaigned against factory farms and done her utmost to help the victims of their heartless operations. In addition to rescuing animals, she works to raise awareness of the constant agony of the animals on the farms. Her selfless love and concern for animals was already well known. Hillside’s growth over the years was made possible by the generosity of a sympathetic public. We have good hearts and instinctively know how to treat animals with love and respect. When this translates into adopting a vegan diet, we benefit our animal co-inhabitants, ourselves, and the whole planet.

The Humble Company: Dr. Noel Abdayem's Compassionate Heart

Dr. Noel Abdayem is a dentist in Sweden. When he was still a dental student, he went to Jamaica to work as a volunteer to treat cavities in children. He found that many kids did not have toothbrushes.

The Toothbrush handles are made from 100% biodegradable, sustainably-grown bamboo. In addition to toothbrushes, the Humble Company also produces an all-vegan lineup of products. Touched by his volunteer experience in Jamaica, Dr. Abdayem longed to further help the disadvantaged children of the world, particularly in realm of improving their oral health. Initially, he donated toothbrushes to various charity organizations working with kids. Subsequently, he met Dr. Darren Weiss. Out of a common vision, they established the Humble Smile Foundation.

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.

We will further highlight how disciples commemorate Supreme Master Ching Hai Day today and every day. “Supreme Master Ching Hai Day reminds me to be grateful for the Supreme Master within. And to be of service to others, especially giving to those in need - like being there for loved ones, visiting and contributing to animal shelters, etc., and recognizing Master in every being to whom I am blessed to offer love and support.” “Supreme Master Ching Hai Day to me, is a day of gratitude to Supreme Master Ching Hai for imparting such a wonderful method that takes care of every situation in my life, and makes me feel like I’m walking on air with daily miracles and wonders. I do my best to treat everyone as if they are Master, to remind them that they are worthy and noble, regardless of their situation and stature, which will hopefully awaken their true purpose of searching for the Kingdom of God within themselves - which is Supreme Master Ching Hai’s wish for all of us.”

Prison Animal Programs: Transforming Lives through Love

Prison Animal Programs: Transforming Lives through Love

Some correctional facilities offer animal-assisted therapy as a form of treatment to selected inmates who demonstrate good behavior. Today, we find out about the benefits of these programs, how they work, and why they have been proven effective. In Australia, the Queensland Corrective Services runs the minimum-security Palen Creek Correctional Centre. The Centre works with a program that finds homes for greyhounds. Liam the greyhound was fostered by an inmate so he would become accustomed to life as an animal companion. Let’s now hear from Liam’s foster father at the Centre regarding his experiences as a program participant. “He’s also never judgmental; he’s happy no matter what your mood is and what you’re doing. So he’s happy to cruise around and smile and be with you. I think also having an animal involved in this program helps with the communication between officers and inmates.” Animals love us for who we are. Some animals even can touch individuals who do not show emotion, including the inmates sometimes referred to as the “tough guys” in incarceration facilities. Dogs and cats can help to teach prisoners about care and gentleness. Correctional facility-based animal programs save the lives of animals and aid inmates in growing in humanity and expanding their personal development.

Master Ayub's Park School: Change Starts from Within

In Pakistan’s capital of Islamabad, there is a unique school where disadvantaged students attend classes while sitting on the ground in a park. This is an open-air place of learning established by Master Ayub. Today, the open-air classroom has grown into an institution with more than 250 students. The school has the motto “Change Starts from Within.” Master Ayub believes that youngsters should not be forced to drop out of school to work. He is also concerned that street children can fall under bad influences and be led astray. His classes fill a need for those children who have no opportunity to attend school otherwise. In addition, the educator feels that we should give aid without expecting or wanting anything in return. He received a civil honor called the Pride of Performance Award from the government of Pakistan to acknowledge his extraordinary public service and contributions to education.
