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….

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….

Heavenly Messenger: How One Small Siberian Crane Transformed Taiwan (Formosa), Part 2 of 4

The little crane is really intelligent. When I met him at the farm, he stood on the ridge and called "jiu jiu-jiu," "jiu jiu-jiu." One "Jiu" and then two more. He would call like that. How strange! He's very intelligent and sensitive. When the lotus flowers are blossoming, there are many tourists. The little crane wanted to peck at people all the time. But when I went to him and scolded him, he did somewhere else. It's true. This little crane is like a person and understands people.

Today, please join us as we visit Her special places of residence in Europe. First, we'll go to Hungary, in early 2005, Supreme Master Ching Hai lived at the Hungary Center while holding a retreat for our European Association members. Although there were two larger mobile homes on the property, Master allocated these to retreat attendees, and purchased an old mobile home for Herself. It was only 3-by-2-by-1.9-meters big and the asking price was only 1,800 euros. Next, we’ll go to Italy. In this enchanting country, Supreme Master Ching Hai lived in a cozy, 2.4-by-2.4-meter house surrounded by trees. Inside was a bed with a several storage drawers beneath it, and a small cabinet. When adding a small kitchen extension to the back of the hut, Master took great care about how the color and style of the paint should be, in order to blend with the existing structure of the hut. We can see this authentic look that gives the hut the nostalgic feel of an Italian country cabin.

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

Today, we’ll visit Her homes in France, as well as Her current residence in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. Near Menton, Supreme Master Ching Hai lived on a mountain, in a small but beautifully detailed and tidy cave, built of stone and cement. The inner section, where Master meditated, is about 1.9 square meters. The middle section holds a simple kitchen, while the outer section, which is 1.9 by about 3 meters, was where Her adopted dog rested. Master once expressed Her fondness for living in a cave. Thus, in late 2018, a very large acreage was purchased in a mountainous area of Taiwan (Formosa). The densely wooded new land has a full-sized house where Master could stay, but she eventually stayed in a tiny 3.2-by-3-meter tent on the roof, according to Heaven’s will. “If I know a place is spiritual, no matter what, even if doesn’t have anything there, even no house even, I would bring a tent there. Everything in my life is just for that category, for spiritual practice only. For myself and for everyone as well.”

Where Does Supreme Master Ching Hai Live? Part 4 of 6 (Note: houses in Asia, many SM quotes)

Today, we'll return to Asia and visit Master's houses in several of the countries where She has stayed. In Japan, Supreme Master Ching Hai once lived in a cabin nestled in a secluded forest in Gunma. At this time, Master drew the painting, "Japanese Apple Garden." In Thailand, Supreme Master Ching Hai has a tiny mobile home, just under 3 by 2 meters. During Her stay there, Master adopted some homeless puppies. We'll now visit captivating Hong Kong. In this bustling region, Supreme Master Ching Hai found a quiet place, high on a mountain. Master was happy with its natural setting. It's said that She was once looking at the sky full of stars, feeling so romantic that She was reluctant to go back to Her house for the whole night. While in Hong Kong, Master converted an abandoned cave, a former cow pen, into a fairyland-like living room overnight with Her ingenious and artistic hands.

Tiny Houses: An Eco-friendly Way of Living

Many eco-conscious people choose to live in tiny houses. They require fewer materials to build than traditional houses and so are highly economical. They also use less energy to run, require fewer resources to maintain, and help minimize household clutter, which in turn reduces the time needed for cleaning and organizing. Therefore, tiny homes offer owners more time and freedom to relax, travel, or partake in other beneficial activities. What’s more, some tiny houses are small and light enough to tow, having wheels rather than foundations, and others can float.

Today, we’ll visit Her creative homes in the Americas. For a period of time in 1994, Supreme Master Ching Hai lived in San Jose, California on a mountain property. Master first stayed in an old second-hand trailer, and later in a 3-by-3-meter wooden hut. Between 2001 and 2003, Supreme Master Ching Hai lived in a small two-story hut on “Blessed Island” at the Florida Center. Each floor is 2.4 by 2.4 meters. Supreme Master Ching Hai personally searched for and purchased a mountain-top meditation center for our Association members in Costa Rica. "It’s a 12 acres, beautiful land on top of a mountain. A mountain, but very bright and very, very nice and grassy and green." The gentle slopes of the Costa Rica Center are often covered with tiny violet wildflowers called Saint Lucia. This is where Supreme Master Ching Hai created Her paintings “Harmony” and “The Beauty.”

Due to global warming and climate change, the water level gets too high or too low in the habitat, so the White Cranes can’t find enough eelgrass to eat. Then they move out of their habitat center to look for food, causing conflict between humans and the cranes. This might be the reason their appearance has been newly recorded in the last two years in Japan, Taiwan (Formosa), and Hong Kong. In Spring, the cranes start to fly to the north, leaving Poyang Lake as their winter habitat and flying for 2,000 km towards the northeast to Momege Nature Reserve in Jilin Province of Northeast China.

Melati and Isabel Wijsen: Making Bali Plastic Bag Free

In 2013 the sisters Melati and Isabel Wijsen, aged 12 and 10, started the Bye Bye Plastic Bags movement to minimize plastic waste on Bali and around the world. After gathering volunteer teams from schools all over the island, they started signature petitions, offered educational presentations at schools, met with people at markets and festivals, and organized beach clean-ups to raise awareness, and distributed reusable bags. This is our vision. We want Bali to be a free-of-plastic-bags island. We can do it, definitely. Yes!

When I look back at this story again today, I realize it's not just about the little crane's amazing journey, but about mine as well. It was a turning point in my life. Because of this little crane, I had the chance to see through his eyes. I went to his habitat, the place to spend the winter, and the place where he was born. I visited Siberia, Poyang Lake, and Momoge. I learned about the harsh environment of his habitat. It's very difficult.

Nations Declare Climate Change as a Global Emergency Part 2 of 3: Interview with Mr. Wouter Veening

Governments, especially the leaders of the Government, the prime ministers or the presidents should really speak out and add their face to the cause of climate change. And They should speak up and stand up for climate change, which by definition is an international issue; it’s a global issue, international issue. And you have to plant trees and protect the tropical rainforest, protect the mangroves; plant more mangroves. They all suck the CO2 out of the atmosphere. Meat from animals is one of the major factors which causes global warming and climate change, etcetera. For the individual citizens, just be vegetarian (vegan), then everything else will become clear and the planet will be saved. That is the most effective and fastest way to save our planet.

The Joys and Benefits of Organic Farming: Interview with Mr. Helmut Butolen, Part 1 of 2

The greatest challenge for an organic farmer is always the climate. We live here in a cold temperate climate. But has changed a lot in the last 20 years and it comes again and again to bigger dry periods and then to strong rain again. It’s not as it was 20 years ago. You have to cope with it. You have to make sure that you select your plants correctly and choose what you grow correctly. The second big challenge is of course that we have no plant growth in winter. But the customers also want to be supplied in winter. This means that you always have to make sure you have good storage facilities and a sufficient variety even in winter.

Save Our Amazon Rainforest: Be Vegan

Where we’ll learn about why areas of the Amazon basin in Brazil have been burning at an unprecedented rate, and how we can help stop it on an individual level. Earth’s largest tropical rainforest, the Amazon plays an important role in stabilizing the planet’s climate by slowing down the pace of global warming. Unfortunately, however, severe wildfires are currently spreading across this precious region due to the clearing of land for cattle ranching. According to the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, cattle ranching is the single greatest driver of Amazon deforestation, accounting for approximately 80% of the total. The way to solve the deforestation crisis and save the planet is simple: end meat consumption. Stopping meat consumption is a crucial action to take in order to save planet Earth.

Creative Transformations of Plastic Waste

Plastic is very inexpensive, easy to produce, light, and can be used in an incredible amount of ways. However, with all these benefits, there are enormous costs. About half of all plastic is used just one time and then discarded. Our beautiful seas are now an immense rubbish bin that no one empties. To degrade and the pervasive plastic shopping bag can take 10 to 1000 years to decompose. Many brilliant individuals, organizations, and companies around the world care deeply about this issue and are working to take a portion of the unending flow of plastic waste and give it new life.

Conservation Agriculture - Growing into a Brighter Future: Interview with Dr. Amir Kassam, Part 1 of 2 (INT)

No soil erosion should be taking place. And now we can achieve that with conservation agriculture, the new paradigm of agriculture about which farmers are beginning to learn and are adopting more and more, which is a no-till agriculture. It is farming which basically emulates as closely as possible what happens in the natural world, how nature takes care of the land. In nature there is no plowing. In nature soil health is being looked after through biomass, a return of biomass. And also, the third aspect of conservation agriculture is diversification.
