A Prayer For Compassion, Part 2 of 2

12:30

A Prayer For Compassion, Part 2 of 2

“A Prayer For Compassion” also explores how the state of our planet is intrinsically linked with humankind’s spirituality, which in turn is affected by our daily decisions. “The environmental crisis is not a crisis of the bees and the birds or the trees and the toads, it's a crisis of how we live as spiritual beings in a physical reality. Therefore, in order to address this crisis, we're going to need to address the spiritual roots.” “So, the most important step that an individual can do today to address environmental destruction is to adopt a plant-based diet, which is as local as possible, which is as organic as possible. So it's Local Organic Vegan Eating - that’s L.O.V.E.” As Mr. Thomas Wade Jackson speaks to sincere devotees of different faiths, it is clear that the holy scriptures of the various religions share a common theme: we must treat all beings with respect and compassion. “Veganism is just a result of your own compassion towards all beings. And compassion is just a realization of your connectivity to nature. When you connect with your nature, with all the beings or with the whole of existence, you spontaneously become compassionate with everyone.” “To honor God is to honor the holy breath of every being and to see that the world needs each of us.” “The Book of Psalms teaches that the world is built through kindness. We bring Heaven down to Earth by perpetuating kindness.” “So the most central question we can ask ourselves every day is how can I increase compassion in the world today, through my every choice?” “Jesus' earliest followers, many of them were vegan because they got it. They got that Jesus was about mercy, compassion and love, and life. Choose life, give life, stop killing, show kindness to everything.” “My prayer is that each of us will challenge ourselves to be more kind and compassionate with our thoughts, words and actions, to vote wisely with our dollars and to take better care of all of creation including our body temples, and to take the time each day to go within and ask some version of what can I do to make the world better for those yet to come and then listen carefully for that still quiet voice to answer.”

A Prayer For Compassion, Part 1 of 2

In this series, we are privileged to introduce an extraordinary, vegan-focused documentary called “A Prayer For Compassion,” produced and directed by Mr. Thomas Wade Jackson, an award-winning American filmmaker, photographer, musician, and Shining World Compassion Award Recipient. In July 2020, Supreme Master Ching Hai provided him with a humble gift of US$10,000 “to lovingly support his promotion of veganism.” By drawing a line between our spirituality and what we eat, the film brings attention to the pain and suffering of the animals who are turned into meat that people consume. It also examines the connection between our faith and responsibility to be the stewards of our planet. Jerome Flynn presents: “How can we expect ourselves to have lives of joy and freedom and spiritual clarity when we are sowing the seeds of the opposite of that?” “There's another passage in the Qur’an that says that because of the wrongs of humanity, there has been much corruption seen in the oceans and on land.” “So, for a few moments in which we're enjoying what is really just a palate preference, we're taking what is most essential to animals: their very lives. And that's the opposite of compassion, it seems to me.” A Prayer for Compassion. “♪ This little light of mine ♪ ♪ I'm gonna let it shine ♪” “This is my daughter, Melody. She's the reason I'm making this documentary. It's for her and it's for all the children who will inherit whatever world we choose to leave them.” “And during that meditation this question popped into my mind: ‘How is it possible that a compassionate, spiritual or religious person could support an industry that is responsible for the unnecessary suffering of billions of people, trillions of land and sea animals, and the devastation of the very planet we live on?’” “The first thing you can do, and the most important thing to do in saving this world and to living in the Heavenly world of God, starts on your dinner plate.”

PreetiRang Animal Sanctuary: The Color of Love Part 4 of 4

PreetiRang Animal Sanctuary: The Color of Love Part 4 of 4

In the PreetiRang documentary, Madhulika refers to her Indian cultural background as being the major influence in leading her to start the sanctuary. “In Sanskrit there is a saying ‘Vasudaiva kutumbakam,’ all people on this Vasudaiva, on this Earth, are one family, so we hope that in the future, more and more people will realize that and that this world will actually start becoming one. We would like people to come here, visit our animals, get to experience animals other than cats and dogs and realize that we are really all related. We feel the same way, pain and love and joy, so we want to bring this realization to the world.” “And if you truly believe that we are the highest, we have the highest evolved form on this Earth, if you truly believe that we are moral, spiritual, then we have no choice but to enlarge our circle of compassion, include everybody and treat all life with respect because every life deserves a chance to express itself. No life should be forcefully taken.” “And my wish is that we are in a more compassionate world, that we study how by ignoring or killing or hurting other animals, how we hurt ourselves or how by helping other living beings prosper, how we benefit ourselves, we learn all those things, we raise the awareness for that. And as you know veganism is not restricted only to animal rights and taking care of animals. Veganism is an extended fight against sexism, against abuse of children. So, we want no segment of society to suffer. We want to help.” Supreme Master Ching Hai along with all of our Association members has been praying every day for a vegan world because it is the only answer to all the challenges we are facing. “Because it’s all only one answer: the VEGAN DIET, the VEGAN WORLD, that will rescue our planet and secure lasting peace for all beings on Earth. Do be vegan. THAT’S THE RIGHT THING and that’s all you have to do. Everything else will fall into place. It will be all benevolence, merciful, compassion, happiness all over our planet if you do that.”

PreetiRang Animal Sanctuary: The Color of Love Part 3 of 4

PreetiRang Animal Sanctuary: The Color of Love Part 3 of 4

In today’s program, we’ll learn about how PreetiRang has transformed people’s thoughts and feelings and convinced them to go vegan. “I first came to PreetiRang Sanctuary around my 16th birthday. Prior to that, I’d never met a cow, I’d never met a chicken or goat. So getting to hold one the first time or getting to hug one was really nice and it really just motivated me to stay vegan for the rest of my life because these are the animals that I’m saving. It’s still just as magical as the first time I came here, just getting to hug the cow it’s like just the most amazing experience ever and I really hope that everyone gets to experience this too one time in their life or another.” “I think the moral bankruptcy that we are facing can be addressed mainly by a vegan lifestyle, right? Including every living being in our circle of compassion, we need to see beyond ourselves. We need to see even beyond the human race. Greenhouse effects are huge. They are using up land. They're using up water that could be used more fruitfully to produce more food for animals. It could end global hunger.” “There was a gentleman who came here because his girlfriend brought him on her birthday, and just to keep her happy, he brought her here. She was very excited to be with the animals. So she would tell him to pose with the animals and he would put two fingers on a cow and one finger on a goat. You could see, he was not very comfortable when he started. Two, three hours later when the tour was over the only sentence he spoke with us, ‘All I eat is animals; how can I give them up?’ So we were laughing about that, but in like two or three weeks, the girlfriend wrote to us saying that he is ready to try to convert to a vegan lifestyle. And he credits his PreetiRang tour to that. And that's just one of the stories, but because it's such a contrast between’ All I eat is meat; how can I be vegan?’ to, ‘Yes, I'm ready to try vegan,’ it's a huge contrast.”

PreetiRang Animal Sanctuary: The Color of Love Part 2 of 4

Madhulika Singh and Tony Sehgal, not only love animals and care deeply about our environment, but also follow the planet-saving vegan diet. “I went vegan shortly after watching a documentary that really opened my eyes to the impact of animal livestock industry on our environment. I'd always considered myself an environmentalist. I majored in biology before going into filmmaking and I was completely unaware of the impact animal livestock industry has on the environment specifically, let alone animal suffering and health. So once I realized that I felt unless I went vegan, I couldn't consider myself an environmentalist.” “Well, one of the leading causes of climate change is animal livestock industry. We make very inefficient use of land and water for raising animals and the crops for animals. And the meat industry also produces more greenhouse gases than all forms of transportation, whether it's land or sea or air, all combined together. And in making inefficient use of land, we keep cutting forests We are deforesting the Amazon. We are deforesting many different rain forests to produce more and more crops for our animals that we'll consume. And it's very inefficient.” “And currently we are going through the sixth mass extinction, and all this is really depleting our Earth and creating a climate change. So if we adopt a vegan lifestyle, if we don't need animal food, animal accessories, like leather belts, leather wallets, leather shoes, then we will not need animal farming. So we will strike down a very huge cause of climate change.” Supreme Master Ching Hai also says that a vegan diet is a solution to global warming. “Adopting a plant-based diet can halt as much as 80% of global warming, eradicate world hunger, stop war, promote peace, and it will free up the Earth's water as well as many other precious resources, offering a lifeline for the planet and for humanity. In short, it will very quickly halt many of the global problems facing us right now. Therefore, it is vital that we change our lifestyle – setting a noble example for others to follow, and do our part to bring to the public's attention the urgent climate change issues and its solutions; the foremost being vegan diet, the vegan diet, to safeguard our precious planet.”

The Olympics: Celebrating Unity and Peace through Sports, Part 3 of 3

The Olympics: Celebrating Unity and Peace through Sports, Part 3 of 3

Today, we’ll discuss in more detail how some of these extraordinary individuals of the past set a high standard for present and future athletes to follow. Young Wilma Rudolph of the United States suffered from polio for years, but nonetheless managed to win a bronze medal in the 4 x 100 meters relay at the Melbourne Olympic Games in 1956, aged only 16. Four years later, she went on to win gold in the 100-meter dash at the 1960 Rome Olympics. What Wilma demonstrated may at first seem like a miracle, but in fact her achievements were due to her incredible personal effort, inner strength, indubitable discipline, and deep desire to succeed. Despite being praised by people around the world for bringing home four gold medals from the Berlin Olympic Games of 1936, the US athlete Jesse Owen felt the most beautiful gift he received was his friendship with a German athlete. Being frustrated with his poor performance in the long jump during the qualifying round, Owen received sincere consolation from his new friend, who also happened to be his strongest competitor, Luz Long of Germany. Although political tensions existed between the United States and Germany at the time, Luz Long valued friendship regardless of a person’s nationality or ethnicity. Canadian sailor Lawrence Lemieux was highly expected to win in the Finn class sailing event at the 1988 Seoul, Korea Summer Olympics. Holding second place in the race and knowing he could pass his opponent to win, Lemieux saw one of the other two-person boats had flipped over. He could see that one crew member was holding on tight to the boat and was relatively safe, but the other member was fighting for his life in the water. Lemieux decisively left the race and saved the stricken boat crewmember, later rejoining his team to finish in 22nd place. However, after a redress from the race judges, he was credited with second position. At the medal ceremony to recognize and honor his heroic deed, Lemieux was awarded the Pierre de Coubertin Medal for “Sportsmanship for his act” by the Honorable Juan Antonio Samaranch, President of the International Olympic Committee. Lemieux felt surprised at the abundance of media attention and interest in his selfless deed, after which he said it was “something I believe anyone would have done in the same circumstances.”

The Olympics: Celebrating Unity and Peace through Sports, Part 2 of 3

The story goes that the creation of the Olympic Truce began with two kings living near Olympia, Greece named Iphitos and Cleomenes I, who with the help of the Spartan lawyer Lycurgus, formalized an agreement to make the Olympic Truce a reality, and something that would later become an integral part of the Olympic vision. With this contract in place, the Olympic Truce provided security and safety for the Olympic arena and the host city Elis, and ensured peace during the Games. In ancient times, the Olympic Truce only protected the local areas around Olympia, but in the modern revised form, it extends to all countries around the world by reminding them to seek an end to meaningless fights during and after the Olympics. In 2000, the spirit of peace resounded during the Sydney Summer Games when South and North Korea walked together in the Olympic stadium under a common flag at the opening ceremony! Further exemplary cases were observed particularly in the United Kingdom. For instance, the London Summer Olympic Games of 2012 stands out as one of the best examples where all citizens of the world were encouraged to embrace the spirit of the Olympic Truce. UK diplomats orchestrated and led an earnest plea to all nations who were not in agreement to cease hostilities and seek peaceful solutions. Another spectacular instance was the Right Honorable Lord Michael Bates’ Walk of Truce. “I think what we need above all in the present time is that the Olympic ideal of seeing ourselves as part of something which is greater than a national boundary, part of civilization, or one exactly the same, living under the same rules, living in harmony. That is a peace which can inspire and has inspired.” To date, more than 200 countries have participated in the Olympics since its revival in 1896. This is quite an accomplishment in uniting the world and greatly contributes to world peace. In Rio de Janeiro’s 2016 Summer Games, a one-of-a-kind team participated; for the very first time a team consisting only of refugees was formed. The Refugee Olympic Team came from four different countries and included two swimmers, two judokas, a marathoner, and five medium-distance runners.

The Olympics: Celebrating Unity and Peace through Sports, Part 1 of 3

Every two years, thousands of the best athletes from around the world gather to participate in the Olympic Games. Although they are competing in sports, their coming together is also a celebration of peace and unity. The central theme of togetherness and friendship is proudly declared and beautifully represented in the Olympic flag. Designed in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, cofounder of the modern events, the flag has five colorful interconnected rings symbolizing the cordial bond of the five continents. The colors blue, yellow, black, green, and red were chosen because at least one of them appears on the national flag of every country in the world. Coubertin also intended the rings’ connection to one another to stand for a unified world. According to historical records, the very first Olympic Games were held in 776 BC in Olympia, southern Greece. After the first international Olympic Games was held in 1896, it wasn’t until 1928 that the modern Olympic flame tradition began. The Olympic torch is famously lit every two alternating years at the opening ceremonies of the Summer and Winter Olympic Games. The flame that lights the torch is created by using a parabolic mirror that concentrates the sun’s rays to spark the fire. By lighting the fire in this ceremonial way, it is believed the flame is at its purest. We’ll now explore how the Games gradually became more popular and came to be hosted by other countries. In ancient times during a truce, certain local rituals or “fun games” would take place in different regions throughout Greece, and the Greek term for this is Ekecheiria, which means the Olympic Truce or the “laying down of arms.” The Olympic Truce tradition is still being practiced to the present day. “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.” Another instance where harmony and peace are promoted is found in the Olympic Charter which states that its goal is, “to place sport at the service of the harmonious development of humankind, with a view to promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity.”

The Uncrowned Kings – Honest Journalism in the 21st Century, Part 2 of 2

Fortunately, there are some brave media groups and individuals today who have been doing their best to report truthfully on the facts as they unfold. In a recent conference with Supreme Master Television team members, Supreme Master Ching Hai noted: “The media, several of them are good, and straight and very, very insightful, and knowing, feeling more intuition about who’s good, who’s not, and also fairness. Like Fox News and New York Post. Others I…maybe there are one or two more.” Fox News Channel has been one of the few major media outlets that have strived to give a fair accounting of President Trump’s administration, and due recognition for its many achievements. Fox News also diligently searched for evidence and testimonies to uncover the widespread fraud that was committed during the 2020 Presidential election. The New York Post has also strived to report truthfully what the public should know, including information about the 2020 Presidential election and the related impeachment trial. “When you have the truth, when you have your conscience on your side – in this case, we just believe we did good reporting – stand by it. Sometimes, you can win. In the end, truth always wins.” Not only media outlets but also independent journalists are upholding fairness and truth in their important work. One of them is Pulitzer Prize-winning American investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald, who was a co-founding editor of The Intercept, an award-winning news organization. Although he was not entirely supportive of President Trump at the beginning of his presidency, Mr. Greenwald relied on his own thorough and unbiased investigations over the years, to call out the truth on certain matters, even if it opposed others’ or even his own previous views.

The Uncrowned Kings – Honest Journalism in the 21st Century, Part 1 of 2

Over the last two decades we have all witnessed a phenomenon in the media industry that now jeopardizes the integrity of modern-day journalism: the consolidation of the news media companies around the world and the misuse of power by the big tech internet and social media companies. “There are hundreds of TV stations newspapers and radio shows, but the truth is that almost every avenue from which we get our information in the mainstream media is controlled by only six corporations that have one specific interest: profit.” As a result of a much more consolidated media industry, the importance of a journalist being honest and truthful when reporting on events has never been more crucial. Many people are now finding it difficult to discern what is truthful news from what is misinformation or biased news. With deep concern about the United States and the world’s future, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has also given us spiritual insights about the former President, helping us to see through the veil of misinformation so as to better understand and appreciate the true benevolence of His Excellency Mr. Trump. “Heaven told me that he prays for peace.” a 2017 Harvard University study found that over 90% of all reporting by the media was negative towards President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office. Then during his re-election campaign, the media continued with the negative bias against President Trump while underreporting any negative news about the opposing Presidential candidate. In a recent conference with the Supreme Master Television team, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke about the effect of dishonesty in politics and the media during the recent US Presidential elections: “But America will lose trust from the international community. And people will also distrust the media, the mainstream media.” With all these unprecedented occurrences taking place today one has to ask, what has happened to journalism in the 21st century? Let’s look at the code of ethics that all respectable journalists would need to uphold: 1. Truth and Accuracy 2. Independence 3. Fairness and Impartiality 4. Serve Humanity 5. Accountability “So we must correct the journalistic education system. The media are the public’s eyes and ears. They should stick to reporting truth. Just report the true news like some of their straightforward, excellent colleague journalists.”

The Human Toll of COVID-19

The Human Toll of COVID-19

Since the first cluster of “unknown pneumonia” was reported at the end of 2019, the highly contagious and serious virus identified as COVID-19 has swept across the globe, affecting more than 84 million people and claiming over 1.8 million lives as of January 1, 2021, according to John Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. The numbers are increasing daily. COVID-19 spares no one, and those who are affected by the virus or lost their lives to it include top political leaders, religious heads, royalty, wealthy businesspeople, as well as famous artists, athletes, and many others who are top-notch in their fields. COVID-19 not only casts a shadow over the lives of the top leaders, religious heads, artists, and athletes, but all of us. Everyone is affected in one way or another. As world governments, scientists, and researchers rush to develop and release vaccines, a more infectious new strain of COVID-19 was discovered in the UK at the end of 2020, causing spikes in cases and renewed concern. When can we see the end of this pandemic? Supreme Master Ching Hai provided insights in one of the recent conferences with the Supreme Master Television team. “I don’t know how long until we are free from this COVID-19. It depends on humans. (Yes, Master.) If they U-turn and live compassionately, no more killing animals or man, then this pandemic will disappear in no time, without any medicine, without vaccine, without any trouble. But if they continue the way it is, I don’t know, I cannot guarantee. I can help some. But I cannot help completely.” Humans are the cause of the pandemic and are also the solution. We pray that all people are awakened to their original loving nature and hasten the arrival of a vegan world, so that the tragedies of global pandemics will be a thing of the past forever.

Golden Age Politics: Australia’s Ms. Kathy Divine (vegan), Part 2 of 2

On today’s program, Ms. Divine tells us more about her latest book, “Golden Age Politics: Inspired, Ethical Politics for a Peaceful, Thriving World.” One of the reasons Kathy wrote this book was because she was so impressed by some of the current vegan politicians. She tells us about some of the people who have inspired her the most. “Maneka Gandhi from the Indian parliament, she’s an amazing leader. She’s also running animal sanctuaries and doing a lot of charity work.” “I also think the New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern is doing fantastic work at the moment.” “And in Golden Age Politics, the whole idea of it is to have a vision, even if you don’t win.” “Because you may not win the first time that you’re a candidate, but you're bringing that vision into the world and, you're just creating the first steps towards ethical leadership in politics.” “With the crisis of climate change and all of the other environmental emergencies, with the pandemic, and all of the issues that are really pressing humanity right now, if there is no basis of a plan for the environment, for climate change, if the leaders are not up to the task of dealing with that, if they are not sharing the vegan message as the biggest solution, they must step aside and let people with the required ethics take charge and quickly get into place the necessary things that we need to create ethical leadership, and to stop the pandemics and to stop climate change in its tracks.” “‘Golden Age Politics’ came about from Supreme Master Ching Hai’s slogan, ‘Be Vegan, Make Peace’. So, the book has a very simple message that is all around ethical politics and around Master’s message of ‘Be Vegan, Make Peace’. So, we first need to be vegan, (then) we can go into politics with our vegan values and create world peace.”

Golden Age Politics: Australia’s Ms. Kathy Divine (vegan), Part 1 of 2

Ms. Divine is the author of six books, including “Plant-Powered Men,” “Plant-Powered Women,” and “Vegans are Cool.” She is the founder of the magazine, “Australian Vegans Journal,” as well as the founder of the Plant-Powered Women Leadership Conference Series. “My latest project is a book called Golden Age Politics.” Ms. Divine explains what inspired her to write the book and what she hopes to achieve through it. “I wrote the book ‘Golden Age Politics’ to give people hope that we can create the world that we’ve always dreamed of. Leaders in government, they are the ones making the laws, so it’s crucial that we have ethical people in politics. So, part of the aim of the book is to inspire ethical people, ethical vegans to go into politics and be the leaders that we’ve always needed, and the leaders, particularly right now, that we urgently need. The book is for voters and it’s also for aspiring political candidates, and people already in parliament, to inspire their work. And to help people vote consciously and carefully at the next election. What I’m hoping to achieve with ‘Golden Age Politics’ is just to start conversations, get people more engaged in politics, more excited about leadership potentials. The first key message in the book is just a simple one. To vote consciously and carefully at the next election, whatever that is, whenever that may be in your country. So that just means thinking about the candidates, thinking about what they're offering, and just really caring about your vote. And to vote also where, in some countries, where it's voluntary to vote, do go and vote because your voice is important. And your beliefs and your values are important. So please do vote. Because the more people that vote, the more people that get involved, the more potential there is for politics to be inclusive for everybody and also a positive experience. Another message is that I think ethical vegans are so well qualified to be politicians. So, I would encourage vegans all around the planet, not just into political positions, because that doesn’t suit everybody, and that’s not everybody’s mission and destiny. But to encourage you to be leaders in your own community. So, vegans can be leaders in their family, they can be leaders in their workplace, in their community groups, even in your sporting groups. On whatever level, you can contribute. Bring those ethical vegan vibes into your place of work or into your family, and be the leaders that we urgently need right now. Because being vegan is the foundation from which everything else flourishes. So, if we are all vegan, we all have ethics backing up our lifestyles, then we can all be leaders, and we can turn around all the big issues like climate change and pandemics and everything else that we faced this year and we will face ongoingly. If we are all vegan as a foundation, that is the best criteria for leadership.”

His Excellency Donald Trump: Determined to Bring the United States and World Forward

Operation Warp Speed, His Excellency’s personal push to make a coronavirus vaccine available as fast as possible to the public, has been roundly applauded and been called an 'unprecedented success.' The project began in May 2020, and the vaccine is now being mass distributed – truly an incredible feat.It is rare to witness in a lifetime a country’s leader with the tremendous courage to step outside political norms, even if it means being opposed, and still work from his heart to do what is right, including fostering peace in their land and the world. United States President, His Excellency Donald Trump, is one such person. This program highlights the many significant domestic and international achievements of President Trump, a Shining World Peace Leader Award laureate and Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion laureate. He has been lauded for his numerous decisive actions to boost the United States in multiple spheres, including strong measures to improve the US economy, protect American citizens’ health, and drive constructive social change in communities.(The pace over the past 10 days has been astronomical. Everybody in official Washington (DC) I talked to said, 'I cannot believe he’s only been president for 10 days.')(This is how it’s supposed to be done. Actually, even more so than we’ve seen in the past.)(We are seeing the markets react positively.)(Consumer confidence rocketing to a 16-year high.)(Healthy job growth again for the month of February.)(So is this the Trump effect?) (Well, I think it is. I think there is no question that employers like Donald Trump a lot and his agenda and I think the fact that he’s just more pro-business.)(The Dow still nearing all-time highs. Just finishing the longest quarterly winning-streak in 10 years.)(He’s repairing relationships with Egypt as well as with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states.)(He’s done a really good job.) (Well, he’s pretty close to perfect, Sean. I’m serious.)(He has done more than any president in recent history, certainly in the last half century, in the first 98 days of his presidency.)Abroad, His Excellency has a lengthy list of outstanding accomplishments. President Trump has been strengthening relations between the United States and other countries as well as playing a key role as a peace-maker and negotiator to bring nations together who previously were in conflict or had few to no ties. He also brought American troops home from several countries. His work on the global stage has been so admired that, to date, he is a seven-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee.We first profile some of the substantial domestic advancements that have been attained by his administration.BOOSTING THE AMERICAN ECONOMYThe US economy has seen exceptional growth since President Trump assumed office. The keen business sense that made him a very successful entrepreneur has informed his fiscal policies. Resultingly, his nation has become more competitive in various markets, and the financial security of US citizens has improved. Numerous national economic records have been set. Overall, the median American household income reached an all-time high in 2019.The Dow Jones Industrial Average, a stock market index with some of the US’s top publicly traded companies, hit a new peak on December 4, 2020. The index is one indicator of America’s economic health and investor sentiment. Notably, the high was reached despite the ongoing pandemic.(It was a great finish to the year.)(Three hundred and twelve thousand jobs added.)(Real wages are rising for the first time in a decade and that’s good.)(Wages are stellar.)(A fantastic number.)(Those are great numbers and we should be applauding it.)(Unreal. Unreal number.)(The first word that popped into my head was eye-popping. I mean…)(This is a blockbuster number.)President Trump has been credited with an enormous expansion in job opportunities after assuming office. Since his election in 2016, seven million jobs have been created. Unemployment fell to a 50-year low in late 2019. Those groups that have historically fared less well economically in the US have enjoyed important gains. The White House noted that, 'The lowest unemployment rates on record were matched or set in September 2019 for African Americans, Hispanics, and people with disabilities.' In 2019, Hispanics and African Americans had the lowest poverty rate in the country’s history since recordkeeping of the statistic began. He also re-started funding of a program supporting career and technical education, with US$1 billion given to the US states to implement it. Additionally, President Trump signed an executive order that directs federal agencies to work with the private sector to create apprenticeship and job training programs leading to well-paying careers.SAFEGUARDING CITIZEN HEALTH"Operation Warp Speed is unequaled and unrivaled anywhere in the world."Operation Warp Speed, His Excellency’s personal push to make a coronavirus vaccine available as fast as possible to the public, has been roundly applauded and been called an 'unprecedented success.' The project began in May 2020, and the vaccine is now being mass distributed – truly an incredible feat.In remarks made on December 8, 2020, President Trump stated, "We’re here to discuss a monumental national achievement. From the instant the coronavirus invaded our shores, we raced into action to develop a safe and effective vaccine at breakneck speed. It would normally take five years, six years, seven years, or even more. In order to achieve this goal, we harnessed the full power of government, the genius of American scientists, and the might of American industry to save millions and millions of lives all over the world."President Trump has also prioritized ending the US opioid epidemic that caused 48,000 American deaths in 2017 alone by declaring it a public health emergency. Furthermore, he signed legislation in 2018 directing US$6 billion in new funding into programs to address the tragedy of opioid addiction. The law helps bolster drug treatment options, has measures to clamp down on the overprescription of opioids and enhances law enforcement tools to address the issue. He also directed the US Justice Department to sue opioid manufacturers for illegal and unethical practices, including aggressively marketing and distributing their products, thus causing a public health crisis. In November 2020, one major drug company pled guilty and agreed to pay a US$8 billion settlement.BETTERING SOCIAL WELFARE His Excellency Donald Trump has been vigilant about protecting Americans’ safety and welfare. He has taken several significant steps to address the scourge of human trafficking. He signed a bill in January 2019 providing US$430 million for anti-human trafficking measures in the US and abroad. The next January, he issued an executive order outlining new federal government steps to end the vile trade and exploitation of children on the Internet. His administration made US$100 million in grants available in September 2020 to law enforcement agencies and nonprofit service organizations that work in the area. This includes funding of housing assistance for victims and money for prevention and intervention initiatives.Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken about President Trump’s tremendous efforts in the area."Others might have talked about it, or some have done little about it, but he is the first one who really acts strongly, fast and seriously, and with heart put into it, to protect people and children from human traffickers."Here are just a few of President Trump’s other major actions to help improve the daily lives of Americans.+ Approved a bill guaranteeing mothers a space for breastfeeding in US airports+ Doubled the child tax credit for parents and expanded income eligibility for it+ Signed a law giving an extra US$2.4 billion to an overall US$8.1 billion program for US states to help disadvantaged families access child care+ Proposed and Approved the US$2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act that included a stimulus payment to citizens, expanded unemployment benefits, and financially assisted businesses, states and local governments+ As of December 2020, he is pursuing more federal coronavirus relief aid to the American people and businesses, including seeking a US$2,000 a person stimulus payment Etc.+Signed the First Steps Act, a prison reform measure that includes retroactive federal prison sentence reductions to address sentencing inequities and improve conditions inside facilities+Directed federal agencies to roll out the 'Ready to Work Initiative' that helps former prisoners gain employment and more here…INTERNATIONAL ACHIEVEMENTSBesides his devotion to the United States, President Trump is committed to peace around the world, as Supreme Master Ching Hai has revealed."He prays for peace. (Yes.) That’s what I know inside. (Wow!) Heaven told me that he prays for peace. (Wow!) (That’s amazing!) You cannot cheat God. (Yes.) You cannot blind Heaven. So They know. (Yes, Master.) Anyway, peace is the most precious thing that any president can give to his country and the world. (Yes.) (Could Master please tell us what is that covenant between God and President Trump?) That he has to make peace. Yes. That’s his job, his mission. (Oh.) You can see it very well. More nations are coming to peace also with Israel. That means peace with America and the world. (Yes, Master.) Because it’s mediated by the American government, by President Trump."Since assuming office in 2016, President Trump has supported and mediated historic peace agreements in numerous countries. The most recent accord was between Morocco and Israel. This is the fourth Israeli-Arab peace deal in the past four months mediated by His Excellency, which include those between Israel and Bahrain, Sudan, and the United Arab Emirates. All of these countries are Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureates. Illustrating the respect President Trump has earned among world leaders for his unprecedented peace efforts, Prime Minister of Israel, His Excellency Benjamin Netanyahu said during the announcing of the peace accord with Sudan: "We are expanding the circle of peace so rapidly with your leadership, Mr. President, your able team. History in the making… This truly changes the region. It changes the lives of all our peoples for the better. It allows us to focus on the task of building nations, building our future… And with your help, the help of the United States, the possibilities are infinite."President Trump has also mediated a peace agreement between Kosovo and Serbia, both Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureates, and was a key facilitator in leading to the signing of the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula by His Excellency Moon Jae-in, President of the Republic of Korea and a Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureate and Dear Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, Supreme Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and a Shining World Leadership Award for Peace recipient. In fact, President Trump was the first US President to step into the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.President Trump has not only been part of directly establishing peace internationally, he is the first US President in over 40 years not to have started any wars. He has also taken action to end conflicts by withdrawing US troops from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia and Syria. In Afghanistan and Iraq, by mid-January 2021, 5,700 troops will have been withdrawn. Moreover, signifying his intention for a peaceful world, President Trump appointed as the Acting United States Secretary of Defense, the Honorable Christopher Miller, who said in a letter to all Department of Defense employees, 'All wars must end.'Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken of President Trump’s courageous work."Mostly America is the police of the world, and they flex muscle. And he is the one who did the opposite. Growing out of America, growing out of this kind of environment, whose race always believes in making war or to flex their muscles. And he didn’t do that. He did the opposite. So, he doesn’t fear. He just did what he thinks is correct."In a special message to President Trump on November 24, 2020, Supreme Master Ching Hai emphasized the importance of his peace-promoting efforts."You have never said that you are going to be president and then you make peace, but you just make peace, like that. And how many hundreds or thousands or millions of people’s lives will be saved? How many countries will be stabilized, and have peace and have prosperity and get on with their lives because of you. Please fight for them. Up to now, not everybody can make peace the way you do. At least you make peace and you save humans’ lives, you save Americans’ lives, these young, beautiful, handsome, intelligent boys and girls cannot just be wasted in a foreign land or any land. So you have saved their lives, you brought happiness to their family, you brought smiles to their wives, their children and all and for that, I thank you very much and the world thanks you also for having some peaceful future. And that means a lot to Heaven and Earth, means a lot to the whole world."As we have seen through our program today, President Donald Trump puts his full attention and effort to uplifting his nation and furthering peace and stability throughout our world. He makes it a top priority to drive constructive change to benefit the lives of his co-citizens and people globally. We give a high salute, praises and respect to his brave, innovative, 'can-do' spirit and meaningful endeavors that have inspired his fellow Americans and many worldwide."He’s good for your country and good for the world. So many things he did right. (Yes.) So many things he did good for the Americans, not to talk about for the world. Think about it, look back, see what he has done. And you will know what I’m talking about. If you really want your country better, improved, please let President Trump continue his mission. Because Heaven wants that way."We pray the world’s future continues to brighten in peace and happiness with His Excellency Donald Trump as President of the United States.

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 20 - Spread the Word

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 20 - Spread the Word

“How many more patients do we want to see languishing in the hospitals between life and death, or dead because of that piece of meat that we put in our mouth? How many more families we want to break up due to this kind of disease and death caused by meat? How many more children we want to see suffer with heart disease, cancers at a young age already, because of the meat diet? And how much more energies do we want to waste in producing meat? How much more grains, food do we want to waste to raise animals at the cost of starvation of millions of other people? Right now we have 1 billion people already go to bed hungry. Every 5 seconds a child dies from hunger – every 5 seconds, while I’m sitting here talking to you. How many children dying or dead already? How many more we want to see? How long we can afford to bargain in the face of these sufferings of our own kind and of the animals, of the environment?” The answer is clear. We must stop the degrading practice of meat-eating to save ourselves and our world. For centuries, humans have been indulging in this unethical, unhealthy, and unsustainable meat habit. Time is of the essence and if we want to preserve our beautiful planet for precious future generations, we need to act now to end all animal exploitation practices and adopt a vegan lifestyle as advised by Supreme Master Ching Hai. "Once we are successful in being vegan ourselves, with organic vegan being even better by the way, we can start inviting others to join us. Ask your friends and colleagues over for dinner and lunch, and introduce them to vegan dishes along the way. They can see for themselves how tasty and healthy it is. We can also pass out flyers that show the health and environmental advantages of being vegan, complete with all the famous, smart, beautiful and strong examples of vegans, like movie stars, athletes, fitness training gurus, etc., etc. Meanwhile, you also can write to the government, schools and other important organizations to let them know the urgency of our climate, and the importance of being veg, with any materials you need freely available from www.SupreMaster.com Or, please ask our Association members to help you. All the vegetarian and vegans should go all out to inform people and tell them the grave situation of our time due to the meat diet and convince others to switch to vegetarianism (veganism). I would call on all the vegetarians and vegans, don’t just be a quiet vegetarian, least of all, a closet vegetarian. You are the pioneers, the heroes, the world saviors. Come out and showcase your most needed shining example. Help in any way you can. Be an active vegetarian; the world needs you." There are so many ways to help others realize the urgency of adopting the plant-based diet. Let’s all do what we can to help people realize the truth in hopes that our world will heal and become a place where all beings are treasured and respected in equality.

Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Heartfelt Message to U.S. President Donald Trump, Nov. 24, 2020

Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Heartfelt Message to U.S. President Donald Trump, Nov. 24, 2020

You must fight to the end, Mr. President. As I am talking right now, I don’t know how many children died out there. Because you make peace, so future children will not suffer that fate anymore, you cannot give up. You have to fight for them, Mr. President! Host: On November 24, 2020, while our Most Beloved Master was lovingly checking in on one of the Supreme Master Television team members, She spoke of Her concern about the United States President, His Excellency Donald Trump and shared an urgent, heartfelt message for him.Hi, hallo, can we talk? (Yes.) Are you busy? (No, I am okay.) OK. I just want to ask you whether or not you get back to normal already. Are you better? (I’m getting there, Master.) Getting there. (Yes.) Seventy-percent better? (Yes.) OK. Good. Tomorrow, 80, next day, 90. Next, next day, 100 percent. (Thank You, Master.) Got that? (Yes.) Did the girls bring you food? I asked them to bring it to your place, in case you are too tired to get out.(I was able to go and get some food myself, but, they tried, but I said “It’s OK” and I went to get it myself.) All right then. It’s also better not to give up, on yourself, (Yes.) because the body will listen. They think, “Oh, she says I’m not well, I cannot go there.” Then the cells just do that. (Understand, Master.) Yeah, so you just tell yourself, “I’m tough, I can do it. It’s OK, it’s just temporary.” (Yes. Thank You for Your concern.) I mean I also have problems, but I don’t care. I said to myself, “You got used to it. You know it already. (Yes.) It’s nothing new.” I said to myself, “You got a headache before, you got pain in there before; shut up.” I told myself like that. I’m happy that you are getting there. (Thank You.) If you don’t feel like eating the solid food, just cook some soup. (Yes, yes, Master.) Vegetable soup and broth and fresh fruit, they are recovery foods. (Yes.) Make the body not have to work too hard so that it concentrates on healing. (Yes, Master.) And exercise, fresh air. OK? (Yes, Master.) Or go out and walk, walk around your garden, your vicinity. (Yes.)Anything new that you have read? No? Yes? (No, not really. I haven’t been reading the news too much.) Yeah, yeah, because you are not well. Fine. I’ve just read today. I haven’t read the day before, yesterday, because I had too much work. (Yes.) But I just turned on the phone because I need to do that to send something. (Yes, Master.) And then I saw like your President Trump, he’s ready for transition and I thought, what is in that. (Oh no.) Does he give up on us? I mean he should not. (No.) It’s not the end yet. Right? (Yes.) Even if he will not win, so what? He has nothing to lose now. Does he? (No.) OK. Maybe he could transition, fine, but he should not give up. I know it’s very difficult for him. (Yes.)Because I read on the headlines on my mobile phone, (Yes.) everybody seems to be against him. Almost everybody. Except his supporters, but his supporters don’t have a big voice like those people who are against him. (Yes.) They are the media, they are the Senate, they are the GOP [Grand Old Party]. That’s the…what is that? (The Republicans.) GOP, whoever. (Yes.) I guessed it was Republicans. I thought that. I mean, my God, if they cannot help him, they should not put him down. You know what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.) Meaning trying to discourage him. (Right.) Try to demoralize him. My God, the man is already almost down on the floor. They should not do this. This is not nice. (No.) I don’t think these people are in the same party or maybe same party but not, I don’t know if they have good ideals about the world or about anything. I’m sorry! Well, I’m not sorry. I’m a free citizen. We have free speech. Right? (Yes, Master.) I’m not naming any names, but I don’t agree with these people who are ridiculing your president. He’s still a president. OK? (Yes. Yes, Master.) He’s still the President of the United States of America. He should never give up, yet. (Yes, Master.) Not until the last second, until there’s no more ways. (Yes, yes, Master.)I feel so sorry for him, you know? I read that and I cried. I thought… I hope he has not given up because I am still praying for him. (Yes.) And then maybe he’ll still change, you know? I don’t want to say anything because sometimes you should not say things, OK? (Understand, Master.) Should not disclose things because we are in the enemy world, you know? We are not in Heaven. We are not in our Home. Yeah? (Yes, Master.) So that’s why many things you ask me, I say I cannot tell you. See? (I understand, yes.) Because even like if you have a spy around you, you cannot talk loud, because you are worried that the enemies will hear you. Yeah? (Yes.) But these kinds of things, you cannot even talk not loud. (Yes.) Because there are invisible spies, you see what I am saying? (Yes, understand.) And they will try to find the way to counteract and then will make trouble for you. (Wow.) Delaying your plan, ruin your idea, or ruin your program, or you know? Everything like that, so many things, but I still have very much hope and I pray for him. Do you guys still pray for him? (Yes, Master.) Please tell all your colleagues. (Yes, Master.) I cannot force anybody, I cannot recommend or anything, I just ask if you can. OK? (Yes.) Please do pray for him. (We will.) I hope Mr. Trump won’t give up. I was thinking, is there any way I can contact him and tell him and comfort him, and encourage him? But I am just a nobody. I don’t know any Republicans. (Oh.) Yes, of course, You understand what I am saying? (Yes, Master.) Because I have never been involved in politics or was never interested anyway. (Yes.) But this, I want to tell Mr. Trump if he even heard it, or I hope somebody of his loyal members would maybe tell him what I want to tell him that: “Please, Mr. Trump, don’t give up. Please don’t give up. Because it’s not for you. I know if I were you, I would also give up long ago. I don’t care about this position, President or whatever… it means nothing to me. Perhaps it means also nothing to you, but it’s your people who trusted you and it’s not for you that you should fight for your rightly earned presidency. People love you. Not just Americans, but people in the world love you. And we love you. OK? We don’t know you, we have no relation to you, but we do love you, we know you are a good, good, good man. Because you did many right things which people opposed, like if you get out of NATO, I approve that. What do they do anyway? What for they have to have so much tax payers’ money just for preparing to kill people? It’s useless. And even other organizations one day they say this, one day they say that, contradicting themselves and confusing people. They’re getting paid, but they don’t do their job well. So wherever you get out, of whatever organization, I think you did the right thing! Until they change. OK?So maybe nobody told you that you did the right thing, but I tell you now. I am risking my reputation as a spiritual practitioner, as a trusted teacher of many people in the world. I am risking my safety as well to tell you this. Not because… of you, but because of the things you do that benefit the world. You must fight to the end, Mr. President. It’s not for you, not for your families. You have children, you understand, you know how you love your children, imagine if your children are being bombed, being crippled, being killed right in front of you… how would you feel? But that’s how hundreds of thousands of children die like that. As I am talking right now, I don’t know how many children died out there. Die young, die innocently, die unjustly. Because you make peace, so future children will not suffer that fate anymore, you have to… you have to fight, you cannot give up. You have to fight for them, Mr. President! I never ask anybody to do anything. But I ask you because I have hope that you are the only one who can do this and you have proved it. You have never said that you are going to be president and then you make peace, but you just make peace, like that. And how many hundreds or thousands or millions of people’s lives will be saved? How many countries will be stabilized, and have peace and have prosperity and get on with their lives because of you. Please fight for them. Up to now, not everybody can make peace the way you do, so please continue to fight. It doesn’t matter, you cannot predict whether you win or lose. That also depends on the karma of your country and of the world, so just fight. Just do what is right because you rightly won the election, Heavens told me that and I know that. I know many things that I cannot tell anybody. But time will tell. You cannot just give up, because maybe the other party comes up and then they will go bombing children, bombing women, bombing innocent people again and nobody can stop them. And these countries…, they are not western countries, they are not America. Most of them cannot afford the medical care that the westerners or the Americans can afford. They are poor countries, they’re already poor and if they are wounded, injured, handicapped, crippled by bombs, by guns, by whatever in the war, they will just die or suffer, suffer, suffer. Please think about that. Whatever you did was right. I know you don’t accept climate change, because you did not study that. You have been very busy with your business, with your other things. I don’t blame you, but I know, I have trust that if you know more, you would immediately do something. You are doing also something, but it’s not the main point of it. Like, I’m advocating for veganism, because veganism brings peace and prosperity and stabilization for the climate.I’m not trying to preach to you about this, but I trust in you. At least you make peace and you save humans’ lives, you save Americans’ lives, these young, beautiful, handsome, intelligent boys and girls cannot just be wasted in a foreign land or any land. So you have saved their lives, you brought happiness to their family, you brought smiles to their wives, their children, and for that, I thank you very much and the world thanks you also for having some peaceful future. And that means a lot to Heaven and Earth, means a lot to the whole world. So it’s not for you that you should fight, you have to think of others like that.And I know you… are not for vegan or anything, it’s fine, you just do what you can. OK? I don’t blame you, because many people know about veganism, that’s good for the world. And many people know for sure what can save the climate and they boast about it. They say they’ll do this, do that for the climate and are hinting that they’re going to make veganism and all that, it is all empty words. Means nothing to me, means nothing to anybody. So at least you are straightforward and you’re honest. You don’t believe, you say you don’t, and whatever you believe, even you don’t boast about it, you don’t promise anything, you just do it. And pronto, fast, as fast as you can. So, I really am grateful to your leadership, please try to continue to reclaim your rightful place… as a winner. Are we okay, girl? (Yes.) OK, because I heard some noise, maybe you are crying. I thought maybe… I am telling you… I’m sorry, I’m so emotional but your president, he should not give up. (Yes, Master. Thank You.) I have never supported any leader in this way, you know that. (Yes, I know, Master.) You know that for sure (Yes.) and I don’t think I will ever do that again. So, really from my heart, it’s not from the teleprompter or anything like that or any ready-made script, or from a ghostwriter or whatever. (Yes, Master.)It’s all from my heart. And I just hope somehow that my sincere, heartfelt words will reach your president. (I hope so too, Master.) And just... maybe, just give him a little bit more encouragement. So that he will not just give up. They are attacking his pride. (Yes, Master.) They’re provoking him, so that he gives up. But that’s just the trap and the trick. He should not do that. He’s a smart man, he shouldn’t do that. He should not listen to anybody except his own heart (Yes.) and except God. Listen to the angels around you; listen to God above you, because you are a righteous man. (Yes.) And that’s why I’m telling you this, Mr. President. I’m not embarrassed to show my emotions and support to you, because I know it’s right. I’m not supporting you, Mr. Trump, I support your ideals, your work, your life-saving actions, because very rarely the world can see a leader like you. So, please... I want to tell you, it’s an order. You must fight. You’re a man, don’t give up. That’s all I want to tell you. Even if they pressure you, they embarrass you, they humiliated you, they degraded you, they try all kinds of all things just to pressure you into giving up quick, don’t do it. Because all the great men, great women, who are destined to do something great for the world, truly great, they are never 100% supported by the world – almost the opposite. That’s the price these great people have to pay. That’s the way it is. So you continue to do what you can. Work with your lawyers, your trusted friends, your supporters. You also need to consider your supporters who are heartbroken over your unjust outcome of the election. Some risk their jobs, their safety to defend you. So, for all these people, and for the world, you must continue. You cannot give up. I also had many difficulties in my mission, all the way up to now, but I did not give up. So if you are a man, you should be better. You are a man, you cannot give up, not until the last seconds, if there is no more hope, no more way to get out of the fight. You must continue, Mr. President. I wish I could deliver this to you in person, but I’m a nobody, in the political arena. I don’t have any power. I just want to tell you my honest, sincere request. I wish you all the best, all the luck that you deserve. I wish you all the protection from Heaven and men. Amen. (Amen.) ”Okay, girl, I think I’m out of breath, now. (Oh, Master.) Yeah. OK. (Thank You, Master.) Do you have anything to tell me? If not then I’ll go to continue my work. (OK, Master. Thank You.) This is just a sudden outburst, but I really wanted to talk about it. (Yes, Master, Understand.) Now I get it off my chest. I hope somehow my words will get to your president. (Yes, Master.) Because my sincerity counts. (Yes, I know.) My heartfelt goodwill counts. (Yes.) I do hope that some of the Republicans that know him, can pass on this message to him. I don’t know if anybody cares really about what I say, but I just hope maybe somehow they find a way to him. (Yes.) Just to remind him that he has to continue his way, and what for, you know what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.) It’s not for himself, so he should not be embarrassed or feeling depressed or feeling discouraged from anybody. (Right.) He should just listen to his heart. Listen to the angels, listen to God. (Yes, Master.) And continue his mission. (Yes.)All right. You have anything to tell me? (No, Master. Thank You.) No, ah? I think you also cannot say anything anymore, right? What do you think? What would you want to tell him as an American citizen? I know maybe we are nothing, but you can tell what you want, get it off your chest. Who knows… (I don’t want him to give up) Yeah. (because I want the world to be at peace.) Yes. (And he’s one of the rare leaders who has courage to be peaceful and not to always go to war over everything.) Yes. (And he has the courage to be different and to be peaceful, and the world needs that right now and we can’t continue the way we’re going.) Yes, yes. (So I really appreciate Master’s words to him. I hope he listens.) Yes, OK. Yes. And we continue to pray for him. (Yes.) Whether or not anybody cares. We just do it. (Yes, Master.) Cause I think he’s our only hope. (Yes.) Even for World Vegan or climate change.Because many people just use that for political reasons, (Yes.) to gain votes or to gain trust or to raise money, (Yes.) whatever it is, their motive, but they don’t do much. Up to now, the climate is getting worse, and people suffer from famine and drought, and weather craziness, everything already. And they all know it. (Yes.) And they say they’ll do this, do that. They do nothing. Nothing essential. (Yes.) And so, even if the President, he… they told me he denied climate change. I didn’t know much about that because I haven’t read news or anything since years. (Yes, understand.) Just maybe now and then, something special so I just have a glance at the headlines. But only now that I am really into it, because of the pandemic that is like no other disease before. (Yes, Master.)And I am concerned for our human fellows, so I continue to follow up with the news. Just anything I can say, I have said it. And I help with anything I can help, at least to our people, to your brother and sister initiates. (Yes.) I feel responsible as a teacher. I have to protect you guys, so I must know many things. (Yes. Thank You, Master.) Even if I know, but I have to have scientific evidence. (Yes, Understand.) Therefore, I have to follow up with all that. And then, by the way I know about Mr. Trump and all this… unfair, unjustified actions of everybody against him. That’s not fair, and not nice. (No.) I hope his supporters continue to support him, at least mentally, emotionally, stand by your man. (Yes.) And don’t let him be too lonely, and alone, and surrounded by all these brutal so-called friends, and colleagues, and party members, and media and all this… oh my God! (Yes.) Like… pounding on one person.I think I have said enough. Do you want to say any more to him? Maybe he’ll never hear you, but you just say it. Who knows? Then you get it off your chest. Just like what I’m doing now. I don’t know if he’ll even ever know about it. (Yes. I just don’t want him to give up and I just… Mr. President, just know that we love you and… just please be strong.) He’s the only hope for the world right now. (Yes.) Other leaders, they just do their business as usual, just to get paid, just to get voted, just whatever… Just to please everybody else around, whether or not right or wrong. (Yes.) He’s the only one who just speaks his mind and does what he thinks is right. (Yes.) Even though he promised nothing. (Yes.) That’s the way it should be for a leader, it should be just straightforward. (Yes.) Just honest. (Yes. Genuine.) Genuine, yeah, that’s it. Genuine, that’s the word. He’s a genuine guy. (Yes.) And that’s why I like him. Heavens love him too. They all support him. All Heavens want him to win. And countless people in the world want him to be President again. (Yes.) I wish even he could be President forever. (Wow.) Yeah, but there are no such amendments, right, in America? (No.) Each president can be only two terms max, right? (Yes.) But in Russia, their president can be president for a long time. (Yes.) I think maybe you should change your constitution. Ah, yeah, they should change. (Yes.) Amend it. So that a good president, like President Trump, could stay forever. Or as long as necessary. (Yes.) Or until people don’t want him anymore. (Yes.) If he did something wrong. But this president is going to do better and better. (Wow, yes.) And if I can have any power, I would change the law and let him rule, let him help the world in his powerful position. (Yes.) Because in this world, if you don’t have this kind of worldly power, then you cannot do much. So, it’s good. In Russia, President Putin can be president almost forever. (Wow.) They changed the constitution. And why not, if he doesn’t do anything wrong, if he brought safety and peace to his country. (Yes.) At least peace (Yes.) and prosperity. (Yes, Master.) He doesn’t oppress people and people are free to do what they want, go anywhere they like, and live their life. (Yes.) At least peace. Peace is the best medicine for any country. (Yes.)I want to say something again. OK? (Yes, Master.) All right. This is more official and serious. President Trump, I was too emotional before, I want to add something in all calmness. Seriously, you have to continue fighting your legal fight, until you cannot fight anymore. You cannot give up. You have to think of all the victims of the war all the time up to now. We don’t talk about long history of war, we talk about the almost two decades of war in Afghanistan, for example. How many people died, how many children suffered, how many widows. Think about them. You know, overnight they became widows, and then overnight, maybe, they are forced to be a slave to some village rich or being abused by them, so that she can have some survival pieces for the children’s sake. Think about the children… suddenly became orphans, homeless. Lost arms, lost legs, groveling on the street for some moldy bread, enduring bullying, harassment, or molesting, anywhere during the war, because of the war, or seduced into brothels, or join revolutionary groups, labeled “terrorists.” Then get bombed again, second time, third time… until any remnant of faith in God shattered, his life shattered also! And never have anymore future, except in the bloody battle field, in the endless blood-shedding wars. Or they have to come and work as child labor in some underpaid job somewhere. But then, they cannot even be in peace to work to earn their meager survival. Because some hypocrites will come along with big suits and big cameras and big crew, exposing the boss for forced child labor, etc., etc. Then the kid even has no more of this meager existence anymore. Then you can imagine what becomes of them. They can either join the so called “terrorists,” or go in to the brothel or crawling on the streets somewhere. Or being molested with no one even caring a hair because they have nowhere to go. They cannot be anything more than just a castaway kind of garbage in the society, in our world. Please, Mr. President, this cannot go on forever. The war will breed more war; breed more so-called “terrorists.” And more so-called “terrorists” will breed more war. It is an endless cycle. You can end it. You did some part of ending the war. The solution is in the Bible that you pray with every day “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Only the benevolent energy of PEACE and VEGAN will repel evil force. Then all will be well. Why pardon only a turkey? Just pardon everyone! Just like your Defense Secretary Mr. Miller said, “All wars must end.” There’s no good war ever. We are not born on this planet just to kill – and kill and kill. Be it humans or animals. All these wars must stop. And we count on you. Many people count on you. Countless of people are thanking you for making peace in their country, so that they can breathe a sigh of relief and look toward their brighter future. OK, I’m not talking too long anymore. You must fight, Mr. President, your legal rightly battle. Don’t give up – for all the war victims’ sake – past, present and future. God bless you, Mr. President. God bless America. May America be Great Again. Thank you. All right, my love. I think I better get back to my work now. (OK, Master.) Originally it’s just to ask you if you are OK and then we’re both crying like babies. Maybe we have become babies.Every day, if I stop thinking, then I can concentrate on my work… I might stop for a while thinking. But when I’m free a little bit, I think of the suffering people in the world, due to war, (Yes.) famine because of war. And the animals who suffer so much in the brutal hands of humans. Oh, I cry all the time. (Yes.) That’s why my eyes are not as good as before. (Wow.) I wanted to ask somebody to buy me better eyeglasses. Never mind, it’s not so urgent, I still have these magnifying glasses. (Yes.) So, I wear the glasses on my eyes, but I use also the magnifying glass. (Oh, wow.) Oh yeah, so I can read the words on the computer. Before I could, now I cannot. (Oh.) I think I cry too much for my own good. I just hope my tears will wash away some of the karma of humans and animals and let us have quickly peace and vegan. (Yes. Yes, Master.)I talked to your brothers and sisters. I said we make one more day for World Vegan prayers. (Yes, I saw.) Maybe the outside people, they won’t do it. But at least we do it. (Yes, Master.) And it will be better. Quicker. Because before, I could not ask too much like that. It has to be a little bit more gradual. (Yes.) Because if outside people, they meditate and pray with us, the power will be too much for them. (Yes.) But now maybe they can be used to it already. (Yes.) So we can increase more blessing power into that gathering and prayer. (OK. Thank You, Master.)You please, continue to take care of yourself. (Yes, Master. Thank You.) It’s not all your fault. It’s karma of the world and it’s the influence of the negative lingering still in humans. (Yes, Master.) All right. We bear it all, we pay everything. We pay anything as long as others have peace and safety. (Yes, understand.) We try our best. Thank you. God bless you. (Thank You, Master.) God bless you. (Take care. Yes.) Yes, and God rewards you quietly. I’ll talk to you next time. OK? (OK, Master. Thank You.) Alright. But if you really cannot… don’t feel like up to it, just let the girls help you. (Yes, Master.) Because they just bring some food. It makes no big deal. You live next to each other. OK? (Yes, Master.) Maybe one day, you will have to do that for them. (Yes.) You know, everyone has some days of unfavorable luck or physical unwellness. Don’t hesitate, don’t feel embarrassed. (OK, Master. Thank You.) All right. You take good care, really, girl. (Yes.) I love you. (Thank You. I love You too, Master.) Yeah. Ciao. (Ciao.)Host: Our deepest gratitude, Most Compassionate Supreme Master Ching Hai, for Your merciful Love for all beings and sharing this important message for President Donald Trump and the future of our world. We pray President Trump will hear and heed Master’s words and continue on in strength and Heaven’s protection with his noble presidency of peace for the well-being of all global citizens, in Divine Love.

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 19 - Against Universal Religious Tenets

17:22

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 19 - Against Universal Religious Tenets

Well-versed in many religious teachings and practices, Supreme Master Ching Hai has graciously explained this core principle. “There are Ten Commandments in the Bible. The first one is ‘Thou shalt not kill.’ When we kill any living being, we commit the act of kill. As long as it has life, it counts as killing. It doesn’t say ‘not to kill people’; it says ‘not to kill,’ meaning not to take any life. Similarly, in Buddhism, the first precept is the most important and it is also not to kill.” “And in Buddhism, the law of cause and effect is absolute and exact. Whatever you do to others, it will be done to us in some way or another. Not only Buddhism, Christians say the same, ‘As you sow, so shall you reap.’ And any other religion you look carefully, you will see the law of karma, the cause and effect: whatever you do, it will be done to you. Therefore, Confucius said, ‘Do not do to others what you do not desire for yourself.’ Because He also knew the law of cause and effect - meaning whatever you do, you will get the result, the bad or good.” “Most of the time we study but we do not practice. For example, Christianity, the Bible says ‘Thou shall not kill’ and ‘do not be among the meat eaters and wine drinkers.’ Not be among them even, not to talk about become one of them, like meat eaters. These are very simple things, but I think many of us have overlooked. And the Buddha also taught us to be vegetarian, not to eat any sentient beings at all because they’re all our relatives and friends – meaning we are all interconnected. Hinduism teaches the same, Jainism teaches the same: avoid killing of any manner.” “Obviously, the eating of any kind of animals, sentient beings is absolutely forbidden in all main belief systems and holy teachings. Yet too many of God’s children, or religious believers, are not following these basic guidelines, because we have been led astray by misconceptions that we need to eat the flesh of animals, fish, eggs and milk to be healthy. The opposite is true – it has been proven in scientific and clinical studies that consuming animals causes innumerable diseases in humans, such as cancers, all kinds of cancers and heart diseases, thus early death, and endless sorrow, suffering before that. Our original diet, as per the Garden of Eden, is the vegan diet. It promotes both physical and mental and spiritual wellbeing. We can live happy, healthy lives, thriving purely on plant foods.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 18 - Lessons Learned from Animals

As most humans have lost the ability to telepathically communicate with each other and other beings, we do not know how animals think and feel. Fortunately, there are spiritual practitioners and animal communicators who can perceive the thoughts and feelings of animals. Today, we’ll present some of these people’s personal experiences encountering animals. “(It scared me also, that I can talk to the animals.) Why? It's good! (Yeah, because I didn't expect that they can respond me in the psychic. Sometimes when I pass by on the street and the dogs come by and I can hear his feeling or what he wants. Like sometimes I talk to them, but they are very scared. They keep distance from people, you know, they have broken heart, and they can hardly believe anymore that people can mean goodness to them.)” “(Recently, I went to a conference hall in Greece, and previously, it was a slaughterhouse.) Ah! Yes! (And I started feeling uncomfortable, and had pictures of panic and fright, and I didn't know why. I felt the pain and the panic. So, I started reciting the (Holy) Names, and I really cried for them, and I saw Your presence there. And their souls, I felt that their souls were liberated. They were previously entrapped in pain, in a level of pain. And through the reciting of the (Holy) Names and the prayer, they were liberated. ) Yeah, wonderful! (And I was grateful, and they were grateful immediately.) Oh, I am grateful to you, that you were there. (Thank You!) They were liberated... You bring love and blessing to them. (Yes, thanks to You, thanks to You. I brought You there, and it was such peace all over the place, and I immediately felt better, so I knew, I knew.)” “(I’d like to share something about the animals. I used to go and visit the cows. There was a field nearby with the cows. And sometimes I just needed to get something out, something off my chest and I’d cry from the bottom of my heart. And whenever I felt that way, the cows, I’d go and visit them, and they’d come right up to the fence every single time. And they also, they said a few things. They said they were very grateful for Supreme Master Television, for the work that You’re doing, for the work that all the disciples are doing. And sometimes I’d see one or two of the cows crying. And they said that it wasn’t because they knew of their fate, that they were going to die. They were crying for mankind.) They really feel sorry for humans, they don’t hate humans for hurting them even, the animals. When we’re hurting them, they are praying for us. They’re forgiving and they feel sorry for us so much. Because they feel that humans are so ignorant, they really didn’t know what they’re doing. So they feel very sorry. Yeah, so it’s good that you have such experience, very profound.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 17 - Exploiting the Helpless

15:20

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 17 - Exploiting the Helpless

Meat is not the only exploitative product that humans derive out of the helpless animals. There are numerous other products from animals that people consume and wear, such as honey, swallow nest, bear bile, leather, and all kinds of fur. Sadly, humans have been exploiting almost all species of animals. Supreme Master Ching Hai has condemned these cruel practices in many of Her lectures. "(We know from documentaries that the fur industry causes some of the most extreme suffering to animals, and that animals can be killed specifically for leather products. We also see that collecting feathers from birds like geese and wool from sheep involves cruelty. What is the merit lost from making or selling these clothing related products of fur, feathers, wool and/or leather? Thank You, Master.) Why do we talk about merit lost when we don’t even have any merit anyway? I mean, we can only talk about sins accumulated. But 'merit loss' is a very kind way to put it. We lose immense amount of merits, if we have any. And if we don’t have, we’re going to pay for it dearly, dearly, dearly, dearly. Yes. Anything that causes suffering to animals – for fur, for meat, for wool, for leather, anything like that – will incur very, very bad, bad, bad karmic consequences, and we will have to pay dearly with our own suffering." "I don’t see any beauty in clubbing a seal or smashing the head of a fox in order to put it on your back. My God, we have so many things that we don’t need... Yes, many things we can wear without being so wicked to other less defensive beings. This is terrible. This is really below our dignity to even think about it." For many millennia, out of ignorance, humans have exploited countless innocent beings and caused immeasurable suffering, reaping disastrous karmic consequences for our planet that are now becoming more and more evident. It’s not too late to heed the warnings of our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai and stop these inhuman practices once and for all. We need to U-turn now to save our Earth, to save our souls, and to ensure a beautiful, kind future for our children.
