Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: No Dogs Left Behind, Part 1 of 2

No Dogs Left Behind (NDLB) is an international emergency rescue organization on a mission to end the dog meat trade in Asia. Jeffrey Beri, a vegan, is the founder of No Dogs Left Behind. Although he loved his career, he decided to follow the true calling of his heart and devoted his life to rescuing the helpless dog friends in Asia, healing their physical and mental pains, and finding them loving new homes. “I got involved with dog rescue when, like many of us, hear the atrocities that take place within the dog meat trade. And we all saw these videos, and I’m an animal lover. I’m also a vegan. So I decided to pack my bags and hang my suit. And travel to China, and work with amazing people, and formulate a foundation called No Dogs Left Behind.” Since the beginning of their presence in China in 2016, members of No Dogs Left Behind have participated many times in stray dog rescue and recovery.

Buddhist Stories: Wish-Fulfilling Jewels, Part 10 of 10 Aug. 13, 2015

“But it’s just the problem. One problem is that, even at the time of death, before you go into the Three Evil Paths, just before that, even if you remember Buddha’s name, just one Buddha’s name, or one sentence from here, then the road to hell is closed for you, even if you’ve done a lot of bad things.” “Of course, you don’t have to remember any of them. If you have one Master, it’s good.” “Try not to complain a lot. Try to see things positively and accept the situation. But nevertheless, all the Centers should work together. Every time we do things without love, there’s a hole in our protective layer, personally as well. Only peace and love can protect you more, apart from the Holy Names, and the Buddha’s power, and all that. When you’re practicing, all the Buddhas in the past, meaning all the Masters in the past, and present, are helping you also. Blessing you all the time. All the angels are protecting you. But you have to be really sincere, so you can connect better.”

The Songs of Kabir (vegetarian): Selections from 1 to 26, Part 2 of 2

Music is all around it, and there the heart partakes of the joy of the Infinite Sea. Kabir says: “Dive thou into that Ocean of sweetness: thus let all errors of life and of death flee away.” Behold how the thirst of the five senses is quenched there! And the three forms of misery are no more! Kabir says: “It is the sport of the Unattainable One: look within, and behold how the moon-beams of that Hidden One shine in you.” There falls the rhythmic beat of life and death: Rapture wells forth, and all space is radiant with light. There the Unstruck Music is sounded; it is the music of the love of the three worlds. There millions of lamps of sun and of moon are burning; There the drum beats; and the lover swings in play. There love-songs resound, and light rains in showers; and the worshipper is entranced in the taste of the heavenly nectar. Look upon life and death; there is no separation between them, The right hand and the left hand are one and the same.

Small Creatures, Big Adventures: “Ratatouille” & “Stuart Little”

This Saturday, January 25, is Lunar New Year! As we get ready to welcome the year of the Rat, let’s take a look at two films, “Ratatouille” and “Stuart Little,” which tell the delightful tales of two courageous little animals, a rat and a mouse, and their grand adventures. “Ratatouille” is directed by Academy Award winner Brad Bird. Pixar Animation Studios’ well-known brilliant storytelling is readily apparent in this fantastic film. “Stuart Little” is a sweet film showing that good things do come in small packages. The film is inspired by E.B. White’s book of the same name, which was published in 1945. Columbia Pictures presents a story for anyone who’s ever had trouble fitting in. Filled with adventure, happiness, and love, “Ratatouille” and “Stuart Little” are delightful movies that remind us to cherish the wonderful, unique qualities of every being, small or big, human or non-human.

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

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

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

Buddhist Stories: Wish-Fulfilling Jewels, Part 9 of 10 Aug. 13, 2015

“Thank You, Master, for reading these beautiful sutras for us in the last days. And this really enlightens our minds to understand the Buddhists, and what Shakyamuni Buddha has done for us, for the living beings.” “We are very happy there are also ways for the people, if they pray to the Buddhas or Christ, they have some ways to liberate.” “Because it’s difficult for all to be initiated, or meditate.” So just tell them to read the sutra. But they have to believe sincerely also. So that, this belief, this sincerity will connect with the Buddha power. Not just blah, blah, blah, blah. Connecting from inside. So they have to be sincere, humble, really request. Even though you say reciting the Buddha’s name, and the past Buddha, and then, or do something, then finally you will be Buddha. But meanwhile, there are so many thousands, hundreds of eons passed already. And then, even then, you might be led into temptation and having suffering meanwhile. So no matter what. Of course enlightenment, immediate enlightenment is the best. So you have the one lifetime, finished. If you practice directly, the (inner Heavenly) Light and the Sound of the universe, then you are directly in. Don’t have to be reborn again, and enjoy the merit or suffer the sin. It’s the best.

The Songs of Kabir (vegetarian): Selections from 1 to 26, Part 1 of 2

Kabir was a great Indian poet who was fully devoted to the Creator. He was a Saint who not only endeavored to live the Truth, He wrote about it through His divine gift of verse. A weaver by profession, Kabir is considered as one of the world’s greatest poets and one of the most quoted authors. Kabir’s message is universal. Perhaps that is why many still revere Kabir as a Saint, whether they are a Sikh, Hindu, Muslim or modern spiritual seekers. We would now like to invite you to be sublime in the beautiful spiritual poetry selected from “The Songs of Kabir.” “Bathe in the truth, know the true Guru, have faith in the true Name!” “The moon shines in my body, but my blind eyes cannot see it: The moon is within me, and so is the sun. The unstruck drum of Eternity is sounded within me; but my deaf ears cannot hear it. So long as man clamours for the I and the Mine, his works are as nothing: When all love of the I and the Mine is dead, then the work of the Lord is done.”

Learning to Communicate with Plants: Interview with Mr. Alexandre Ferran, Part 1 of 3

On today’s program we’ll speak with accomplished actor, director, and author - Mr. Alexandre Ferran, of Paris, France. Through his thorough research, he has also become a renowned expert in understanding the ability of plants to communicate through music and words. “At the beginning of the 20th century there was an Indian called Mr. Bose who created a device called the crescograph, which made it possible to read in an accelerated way the movements of plants.” “In fact, in science, what we notice is that all the people who are plant lovers are able to demonstrate that they have a conscience, and emotions, and the capacity for understanding, of intelligence, etc.” Plants can also understand and respond to what people say. As Mr. Ferran shows us how plants can use the communication device to communicate through the language of music.

Altruistic Animals

Today we would like to share with you some amazing stories of animals who turned their selfless concern into loving action for the benefit of others. Let’s start with a cat named Kuu. Cat Assists Dog with Dementia. Cat Saves Baby from Danger. Dog Keeps Lost Child Safe and Warm. Cat Saves Caregiver from Fire. Dog Saves Family from Fire. Let’s now meet a bull calf named Oliver. Bull Calf gives Love to Blind Bison. Just like humans, we animals are beings that have feelings. There are times when each of us needs some support, and these are the opportunities for those close to us to let their nobility shine and give selflessly. I trust you have enjoyed today’s stories and are perhaps even inspired to lend a softer heart and a more generous hand to all of Earth’s inhabitants.

“And then at that time, there was a person in the peaceful heaven. He looked down and saw that Great Charity was so determined to do good works to help all beings in the world. So he asked many of his friends in heaven, heaven friends to come down and quietly help. After the dragons saw that the water level kept lowering, they were so scared. …They returned the three jewels.” “So when Great Charity came back, he came and prostrated in front of the parents. Both of them were so touched, so in awe.” “And then, from then on, the whole planet, everyone had everything they needed, including jewelry and precious substances. And then he asked someone else to come in, announcing something again, ‘Now, I would like all of the citizens to try to practice the Ten Wholesome Deeds, and keep your speech, action and thinking pure and merciful, compassionate, loving and kind, filial and protective of each other….’” “At that time, on the planet here, everyone relying on his blessing had everything they needed, and also diligently practiced the Ten Wholesome Deeds. Because of that, after they died, all of them went to Heaven.” “Now the Buddha reminded everybody, ‘The Great Charity person was my former incarnation. And the Ocean King, who stayed in the golden citadel now is Ananda, who treated me generously and respectfully.’”

Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 73 - Native American Prophecies with Chief Phil Lane Jr.

Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 73 - Native American Prophecies with Chief Phil Lane Jr.

According to The Honorable Native American Chief Phil Lane Jr., enlightened Masters have always been coming to bless our world, helping to move our human civilization forward to a freer, more inclusive and advanced state. The gentle presence of each enlightened Messenger has had a ripple effect that elevated our world in ways we may never fully perceive. And it is still true in our modern time. One autumn day in 1993, an intuitive kinship led a respected Native American medicine man to invite a living Master and Her disciples to his home. The time together was brief but impressions. In an inspired moment, Thomas One Wolf expressed what enlightened Masters meant to the Native American people, in sharing his thoughts about Supreme Master Ching Hai. “Her wisdom is knowledge shared, remember something: ‘the only word you are really hearing is Joy.’ When you are walking with Her and you see people that will respect and honor Her way and pay homage to Her, then you are gifted by the gift of Her peace. These are what Masters are to the Indian.”

His Holiness Marpa Lotsawa (vegetarian): Remarkable Tibetan Buddhist Master, Part 2 of 4

While following Mahasiddha Sri Naropa, Marpa Lotsawa received permission to study with Naropa’s disciple, the great Mahasiddha Maitripa, who became Marpa’s second main Guru. At the Radiant Flower Monastery on Blazing Fire Mountain, Marpa received two important traditions from Maitripa. The first is the Vajrayana practice of singing spontaneous songs of experience and realization, known as dohas. The teachings of Mahamudra is the second tradition that Marpa received from Maitripa. Afterwards, Marpa travelled home to Lhotrak, where He was greeted by the locals with respect. Meanwhile, He continued to work to support His family as well as His growing followers. After his son Tarma Dode was born, Marpa Lotsawa went to India a second time, and for the next six years, He continued to study with Masters Naropa and Maitripa. As He was preparing to leave, Naropa instructed Him to return to India for a third time to complete His training.

Buddhist Stories: Wish-Fulfilling Jewels, Part 7 of 10 Aug. 13, 2015

Walking for a while, he saw another citadel with walls all like green diamonds. And this, another Ocean King, sat on his seven-jeweled throne. So he asked, "Bodhisattva, is there something necessary that you have to come here?" So he said, "Your Majesty, I come here requesting of you the Wish-Fulfilling Jewel to help my people." So the King of the Ocean said, "Sir, this one can rain down food for all beings within 4,000 square miles. If you want to have it, please stay here two months. Every day, give me a lecture." After a while, he saw another citadel. And then the king, another King of the Ocean, sitting on his seven-jeweled throne. So he said, "This jewel can rain down seven kinds of jewels in the vicinity of 8,000 square miles. If you want it, you stay four months, preach to me, so that I know some of the Buddha's true Dharma." There were some dragons around there, knowing that Great Charity had come to the Ocean King, and had gotten the best Wish-Fulfilling Jewel, so they became greedy. And he thought to himself, "So it can only be the dragons that stole my jewels. I spent so much time and went through so much hardship to get them so that I can rescue other beings, to fulfill my wish of charity to give it to others. Even if I die, I will not go back home empty-handed. I will scoop all the water from the ocean until I see you down there."

Wisdom and Judgement Jan. 12, 2020

On Sunday, January 12, 2020, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly addressed the assembly of our fellow Quan Yin practitioners at the New Land Ashram in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. Our Gracious Master also explained the difference between wisdom and our judgement, with a few examples for clarity. “We have to practice more in order to have wisdom, but it’s very difficult for you to feel the difference between wisdom and your own judgement. I’ll tell you some examples of wisdom and your own preconceived ideas, judgements.” “You always have to improve. You learn with me, but you don’t copy me in my doing, because sometimes you copy differently. You don’t understand the meaning behind it, and you just copy blindly. That’s no good. You have to know logic and reason, not to talk about wisdom yet.”
