IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 2 of 2

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 2 of 2

In view of such daunting challenges, the IPCC Climate Change and Land Special Report could represent our last hope for a sustainable future. It is also a solution that can be carried out on both the individual and the governing front. The first of these themes involves the preservation of our world’s forests, as well as other land-based carbon-absorbing “sinks,” such as wetlands and grasslands. The second theme focuses on putting an end to our grossly inefficient food system. The Report concludes that transitioning to a plant-strong diet can free up hundreds of millions of acres of land, which will help to curb deforestation and climate change. Upon hearing of the IPCC Special Report’s suggestion for the world to transition to a plant-strong diet, our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai was overcome with joy. “We had good news: the United Nations and all the countries in the world signed the less meat protocol. So it’s becoming official now. I hope they just go forward. Become meatless. Not less meat, but meatless. No meat at all. That’s why I came to celebrate with you.”

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 1 of 2

IPCC is the body established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide policymakers with regular scientific assessments concerning climate change. It was the recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for its work on climate change. The newly released second Special Report on Climate Change and Land brings revitalized hope with its wise, clear policy suggestions. The key message of the report is that in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, better land use, halting deforestation, and cutting down on food waste must be the priorities. In a 2009 conference, the world-renowned humanitarian and spiritual Master, Supreme Master Ching Hai, shared with attendees, “So, to cool the planet most quickly, we have to stop consuming meat in order to stop the livestock-raising industry, and thus stop greenhouse gases, methane and other toxic gases from the animal industry.”

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.”

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

Matthew Podolsky: Conserving Wildlife through Film, Part 2 of 3

On today’s show, we’ll learn about his third award-winning conservation documentary about the Vaquita, an endangered species of porpoise. “And at the time we began the project it was considered the world’s most endangered marine mammal. And at that time, the population estimate was about 100 individuals but it was declining at a very rapid rate.” “And we premiered it at Sundance this past January where it won the Audience Award in the international documentary category. And then it got picked up for distribution by National Geographic at the end of the festival. So, now we’re on this whirlwind tour and the film is getting a ton of exposure, which means the issue is getting a ton of exposure.”
