Mozi or Mo Tzu was a Chinese philosopher who lived around 460 BC to 391. He was a pacifist who traveled from one region to another to try to convince rulers from their plans of conquest. Mo Tzu’s teachings encompass self-reflection to attain true self knowledge, universal love and enlightened self-interest in social relations. He advocated self-restraint in which a person would indulge in neither material norSpiritual extravagance. His philosophy encompassed the concept that one must do actions which brought the most benefit for the general welfare of all. People might then ask, "At the present time, rulers are not absent from the empire. Why then is there disorder in the empire?" We now present an excerpt of Mo Tzu’s teachings, “Identification with the Superior” from the book Mozi.

According to data released in 2016 by the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) known as the European Vegetarian Union (or EVU), nearly ten percent of the German population has gone meatless. This is claimed to be one of the highest rates of vegetarianism among European countries. According to a report released by UK based global research agency Mintel, in their Global New Product Database, Germany was the leading market for new vegan food and drink products in 2016, which accounted for 18 percent of all new vegan products and services launched worldwide.

“(As she was about to leave, she realized her bad karma. Because she got married to a man in the meat business. A spiritual practitioner should never get married to someone in the meat business. She said that the person in the meat business took away her merits.) The meat business involves handling meat and fish. (He fed her some food, but she couldn’t eat it, couldn’t swallow it because his hands were full of blood. That’s what she said. When I came, I cooked for her, and she said, ‘Anything you feed me, I can eat all right, it tastes very good.’ Therefore, it is said that near the time of one’s death, one can see everything.) I understand. It’s like a movie, (Yes.) it goes by very fast. (She thought if she meditated well, she could change that man.) Change him. I understand. (But it wasn’t possible.) Very difficult. (She said that only Master could do it. Nobody else could. In the last minute, she regretted and realized it. She asked me to get her out of her husband’s house. She said that the (inner) Master had already left her body. I asked, ‘How could Master leave your body?’ She said, ‘I don’t know. Master has already left my body, sister. Please get me out of this house, otherwise I can’t even die.’) Understand. (Therefore, I thank you, Master.) Because she was too involved with meat-eating people, the (inner) Master could not bear it. (Yes.) But not being able to bear it doesn’t mean leaving her. Just going outside for some fresh air. Could not bear the meat stuff all the time.”“(Among the young initiates, there was one child who had a disability since a long time. He could not talk at all. One day… His mother did not force him. She said, ‘Your sister and I are going to have a vegetarian meal. You stay here and eat the meat stuff with the (Other people.) others.’ And the kid ate nothing. After his mother had a vegetarian meal in another room, she came back and asked why he did not eat. He couldn’t talk. But then perhaps mother and child understood each other, so he just cried. He just cried. Later that day, his mother said, ‘This evening, you come and eat with me.’ The kid happily went to eat vegetarian food.) Okay. (After that, gradually he could talk. Ever since eating vegetarian food, he started to talk.) He was able to talk? (Yes.) Very good. Eat more vegetarian food then. He couldn’t talk since he was little, but after eating vegetarian, he could talk. It wasn’t because he ate vegetarian food. It was his sincerity and faith in the Master. Yeah, because he was sincere, so he tried. Due to the sincere heart, his (bad) karma (retribution) changed. He was so sincere in wishing to be initiated. Therefore his (bad) karma (retribution) changed, and he could speak.”

“The meat stuff is not up to the nutritional standards for humans. Therefore people get all kinds of sicknesses. They don’t need to believe anyone, don’t need to believe what I say. Vegan food is the proper food for humankind. Putting meat, fish into our body will give it problems. Luckily, everyone... even though they eat meat, they also eat vegetables and fruits. Otherwise they’d be in serious trouble. They’d be dead.”“I only do whatever is beneficial to the world, and to the universe, and to you and to myself. To everyone that I know and I love. So there are no rules. Of course, there are rules, like of course, I don’t go eat meat or anything like that. But there are no rules to how I meditate. (Yes.) Okay? No rules anymore, for me. But for you, yes! You must sit. Must sit well and don’t keep sleeping all the time. Yes, because even if you stretch or you stand, or you sleep, it makes no difference. You sit so that you don’t sleep too much. Okay?(Master, now you’re so powerful, are all of the SBLs (Spiritual Blessing Lines) and the Heaven gates at the Centers, is it changing or are they the same?) Changing also… Changing. Become more powerful. Yes, more powerful. Even no need SBL or Heaven gate anything anymore here. If I’m here, no need. Because I’ve gone above all that. And so much power that I’ve brought. Of course, a little bit at a time and now, very used to big power now. So I told you already, even if I’m not here now, after I’ve left, the concentrated power alone could be left here for twenty days. The concentrated power. Not the normal extra power. As if I’m still here. So forget Heaven gates and all that. But you still need it. The more the better, of course. Because you cannot reach higher, so Heaven gate, Heaven ways are all very good. Better than hell gate, no? And of course, you cannot assimilate the power, so I brought it down. And here, we distribute accordingly. According to what you can digest. So try to catch up, huh? (Yes.) Yeah, try to catch up so that you can get more. (Yes.) You cannot go direct, but you can take it from me, for example.”

Due to increases in our planet’s average temperatures, news about melting glaciers has become more frequent. In recent years, warmer-than-usual global temperatures have caused chunks of Western Antarctica to collapse into the ocean. Glaciers and ice caps, mostly from the Arctic and Antarctic regions, respond to climate change by melting and thus contributing to sea level rise.Lately, scientists have observed a rapid increase in sea levels in the Indian Ocean. As the third largest global oceanic division, the Indian Ocean is of great importance – its swelling waters will have a huge impact on many countries due to its geographic location. Nearly 40% of the world’s population, approximately 2.6 billion people, lives in coastal zones around the Indian Ocean.Many parts of our planet will be under water if greenhouse gas emissions – mostly methane and nitrous oxide produced by animal farming – continue to warm the earth. The loss of icebergs frequently contributes to sea level rise, which in turn leads to extreme flooding around the globe. This bleak future can be prevented if greenhouse gases are significantly reduced by ending the production and consumption of meat and dairy products.During a videoconference held on June 13, 2008 with London, UK Association members, Supreme Master Ching Hai conveyed a very important message on protecting our environment and ending climate change. “If we stop the worst cause of global warming, meaning stock raising, animal breeding, then we will be able to save the planet. We have to stop the killing of man or animals. We have to stop producing animals products. And we have to stop using it, okay? The best thing is stop eating meat, stop killing animals, stop raising animals. Then the methane gas and the nitrous oxide gas will stop! And then we cut already a big chunk of pollution off our air and we cut off the global warming process. And I said already 80% of it will be cut almost immediately, and we can see the results in a few weeks.”

“Wherever I go somewhere new, I try to find the connection. But it takes some time. Because if I live somewhere very long, then I know every corner already. …Because in each and every corner of the Earth, there are some different connections. Some higher, some lower, and some for peace, and some for love, and some for food reorientation, some for healing. They don’t always stick together in one place. …I have to look for it inside first. And then I know where it is, then I go there, okay? …Anytime I find something, I just sit over there.” “It’s always better when you are very positive in your mind. There were two persons, initiates, mother and son. They live in Czech Republic. They opened one Loving Hut restaurant. First, it wasn’t Loving Hut and later it became Loving Hut. Of course, it was vegetarian. And then later, they opened another one, and then another one. And another one. And another two are coming. And everywhere they go, everybody likes them and asks them to come to this mall and make another (vegan) restaurant, and go to this building, make another (vegan) restaurant. The government even asked them to come make another Loving Hut restaurant for them. Everywhere asking them. They’re too busy, they can’t even do it all. Always have to train new staff, new cooks. And they don’t have that many disciples in Czech. And only two of them and they are conquering the whole country.” “And it’s always positive, so everywhere they go, people like them and want them to open more. Just they couldn’t. Just too many jobs, too much work. But they are always very, very positive, and so they are very successful because they are always positive. Whatever she says, wherever she goes, she always tells me things, always positive attitude. No wonder she is successful and people like her, like them. I have never heard her say something negative about anything. Especially business or practice. Always believes in the Master power, always believes things are good. And it’s really good. The government over there invites them to make more! And wherever they go, people are looking at them like looking at saints coming or something. Very admiring look. So this is the power of a positive attitude, okay?”

(Master, it was very comforting when you told us about North Korea and South Korea on your last talk with Supreme Master TV. It was very comforting. Thank you, Master.) “It’s a fact, no? (Yes, but it was just very comforting that you spoke about that situation, because right at that time, I remember even myself, I felt very anxious with all the news that was going on. And then your broadcast came out and the timing was just perfect, Master. And the words you used to comfort us and to comfort the world, it was really, very, very comforting.) (Critical time.) (So, thank you.) You’re welcome. I know you guys panicked, especially the South and the North Korean people. That’s why I came out to talk to Supreme Master TV. Okay? It’s not the timing was perfect, I timed it. I knew it was the time to talk about that, to comfort people a little bit. Because I know it is okay. I can see a little bit clearer than the people inside. (Yes.) When the people, they’re involved, they don’t see very well, that’s all. Okay? You know, the third person sees better than the two inside, the two involved inside.” “Because it involves many countries, that’s why. (Absolutely. It would honestly affect the whole world if it was negative.) Yeah, of course. Of course. Because America would jump in. (Yes.) Europe would come in, and everybody else, like China. Oh, all the big, giant guys, yeah? (It’s not kidding. It was very serious. If it happened, everybody, every country would be involved.) You were scared, too, huh? (About Iran.) Yeah, I know. (Always just talking, talking. And put people in stress.) I know. I know, I know. But okay, it’s better now. (Thank you, Master.) Yes. It’s getting better all the time. Okay? (With your grace, yes.) Don’t worry. They just blow everything out of proportion sometimes. And then everybody’s on edge, and everybody’s more panicky than the other anybody, and then things maybe just become out of control. (Yes. But when I heard you talking, Master, immediately I was relieved of the worry. Immediately.) Yeah, I hope it helped some people. It helped the disciples, at least. (Yes.) And the South Korean disciples and the North Korean non-disciples. I forgot all about it, but now you mentioned it. I’m glad you’re happy.”
