Swami Vivekananda – Service to Humanity is Service to God, Part 2 of 2

During His meditation, Swami Vivekananda concluded that only with the renewal and restoration of the people’s highest spiritual consciousness could India rise again. He reminded them: “Religion is not in books, nor in theories, nor in dogmas, nor in talking, not even in reasoning. It is being and becoming.” “You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.”

The venerated Saint Francis of Assisi is greatly admired for His love of peace and for all of God’s creations, a true champion of the Earth. His dedication and faith towards God was expressed through His reverence for all living creatures as brothers and sisters.

Saint Francis of Assisi (vegetarian) : Paving a Path of Love, Part 2 of 4 (INT)

“Praised be You, my Lord, for those who give pardon for Your love, and who sustain Your infirmities and tribulations, as in so doing, blessed are those who endure in peace, who by You, Most High, will be crowned.” It is true; He called the animals His brothers, perhaps the first person in history who called the animals brothers. And this is a very strong thing that makes you understand the soul of Francis. There was a connection with the Creator of everything, the Father of everything, who wants all His creatures to live together.

Saint Francis of Assisi (vegetarian) : Paving a Path of Love, Part 3 of 4 (INT)

From His stripping on, Francis will not put a penny in His pocket and will ask the friars to do the same. And so in this place, it remains clear that it is not true that what makes the world turn is money, but it is love. It must be so. We have not been created for the good of this world, but the good of this world is at the service of the human being, especially those who need it most. And so, Francis will help us to rediscover the joy of being children of God and brothers of all. Peace and love.

Saint Francis of Assisi (vegetarian) : Paving a Path of Love, Part 4 of 4 (INT)

We had the honor of visiting the Sanctuary of the Stripping and learning more about Saint Francis from Brother Carlos, the vice parish priest of Santa Maria Maggiore. So, we want our shrine, with the grace of God and the help of Saint Francis, to become a door, to help us move on in a new way. Because we also need today’s stripped, freed people, as long as you can clothe yourself with Christ. It is a stripping. Undress yourself. It is an opportunity to bring the poor into the heart, the last ones, the sick, the wife, the daughters, the husband, and sometimes, you will find God.

The Venerated Dazu Huike (vegan): Zen Dharma Lineage Protector, Part 1 of 3

The Venerated Dazu Huike, the Second Chinese Patriarch of Buddhism, was born in the city of Hulao. He became a monk at the age of 30, received the name Shenguang, meaning “God’s Light.” Let’s continue our story about Master Huike and His encounter with Bodhidharma. While Dazu Huike was teaching under name of Shenguang, He noticed that Bodhidharma sometimes nodded His head, and sometimes shook His head. Shenguang asked, “Have I said anything wrong?” “Although it is well said, what use is it?” It was December of 528 AD, and there was heavy snowfall on Mount Song. Seeking the Dharma, Shenguang trekked through the wind and snow with no regard to the freezing weather. Shenguang dared not disturb His meditation and stood amidst the heavy snow for the whole night. …Shenguang immediately used His knife to cut off His left arm, to show His determination to seek the Truth. Patriarch Bodhidharma was touched by Shenguang’s determination and accepted Him as a disciple.

The Venerated Dazu Huike (vegan): Zen Dharma Lineage Protector, Part 2 of 3

Seeing that Shenguang was determined to seek the Truth, Bodhidharma accepted Him as a disciple and changed His name to Huike. Huike studied for six years under Bodhidharma. On the day Bodhidharma prepared to pass on the mantle to His successor, He had His four main disciples report their understandings of the practice. After Dazu Huike answered the Patriarch’s question with silence, Bodhidharma earnestly told Him, “In the past, Shakyamuni Buddha passed down the Supreme Method to Mahākāśyapa. It has then gone through many generations before it was passed down to me. Now, I pass it to you.” Having received the mantle, Dazu Huike became the second Patriarch of Chinese Zen. As per the Venerated Patriarch Bodhidharma’s instructions, Dazu Huike practiced for 40 years in Seclusion before He risked His safety and went out. He first gave discourses at Shaolin Temple. In 582 A.D., Dazu Huike passed down the mantle, robe, bowl, and sutras to Jianzhi Sengcan in Sikong Mountain.
