“December 4, 2012, will be the first-ever Wildlife Conservation Day. Our goal is to inform more people about this global conservation crisis. Attacks on elephants and rhinos are multiplying at an alarming rate. Species around the globe, such as tigers in Asia, are endangered. By some estimates, the black market for wildlife trafficking is rivaled in size only by the illegal arms and drug trade. The slaughter of endangered species robs communities of income from tourism, reduces biodiversity, encourages corruption, and undermines good governance.” In addition to elephants, rhinos, and tigers, dozens of other endangered and threatened species are victims of wildlife trafficking.

When I look at my cathedral, I think how much faith was needed so that those people could work, break stones, sculpt, to make such a masterpiece. It represents faith. That’s why I say: The cathedral is a place of prayer. All these stones breathe the faith of those who worked on them. It’s a bit like in icon theology. People who made icons, they prayed, the icon is consecrated. When you pray before the icon, the divine energy reflects upon you. It’s the same in the cathedral. The divine energy spouts out on all the people who are here and who are truly unified, appeased.

Wangari Maathai encouraged the women to work together to plant trees. This helped to bind the soil, store rainwater, and provide food and firewood. The tree-planting became an empowering symbol of peace.

Hinduism speaks of only one God or existence, and therefore, it is not contradicting any other religions. So, Hinduism is so tolerant and it accommodates all views, and yet maintains that the Truth is the only existence, without a second. That is Hinduism. However, there is one aspect that is not possessed by material science: the sacred testimony. The sages go far beyond your physical observation and inference. So the sacred testimony is a very very important foundation of Hindu philosophy, and it can be understood by you if you also personally follow and experience your own Self.

In almost 30 years of running a business, Mr. Fry’s role has changed and evolved over time. He generously shared these changes with us. What is the future of food? Mr. Fry explains that there will be many changes concerning the marketing of foods and its consumption in the future. “There’s a couple of bad things going on with food and that’s plastic. And of course, you know, meat and animal products. So, consciousness is growing in the world. And I think that as we get deeper and deeper into this movement or evolution of humankind, supermarkets will change. We will become more natural with everything. We will have less packaging, things will not be able to be transported long distances and therefore have to be in plastic. Things will change and people will stop buying bottled water. I think those things are gonna change without any doubt. There’s no doubt at all, in my mind.”
