Dr. William Grant on Bolstering Health Through Sunlight and Vitamin D, Part 2 of 3

“There are many benefits of sunlight and being in nature. People can have reduced risk of Seasonal Affective Disorder with more UV exposure from (sun) lamps or from taking more vitamin D. Vitamin D has been found to reduce the risk of depression. There has also been studies showing that vitamin D during pregnancy helps increase serotonin levels during pregnancy and that the offspring then have better serotonin production and that serotonin is linked to the risk of autism. Sunlight and Vitamin D can reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s and other dementia.” Animal products are also a risk factor for developing dementia. Dr. Grant explains. “The countries with the highest meat or other animal product consumption had the highest rates of Alzheimer’s and that was about 6% or 7% of the senior population, age-adjusted. Whereas the countries that had very little meat and (ate) mainly grains, and so on, had about 1 or 2%.”

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 5 of 6 July 14, 2019

And my cave in Spain, it was just a cave, a lot of rock and rough and it was not accessible. It's far away from any human's quarter. So, around is all trees and bushes, birds and squirrels and rabbits, and stuff like that. Oh, beautiful place! There's nothing, really, just that. But, for me, it's beautiful, because it's so quiet. But in that cave, I had the biggest ever realization. And the Gift that I gave some of you, also from that time. That was one of the best times in my life, just like in India when I had nothing. I love having nothing. You just feel so free. In heaven, you don't need to want anything. Or even whatever you want, it's already there for you. And even if you want anything extra just for creativity's sake, you just think about it, it's right there. But here, you are not allowed to use this. I'm not allowed to use so many things.

Gentleness is Strength

Gentleness is Strength

Today, I’m going to share with you a story titled “The North Wind and the sun.” “Sun, do you see that traveler wearing a cloak? I propose a contest to resolve our dispute once and for all! The first one to remove the cloak off of his back is the strongest of all!” Despite the strong force of the Wind, the man didn’t take off his cloak, but held on to it even tighter. In the end, the Sun, by offering warmth and comfort, made the man willingly and happily take off his cloak. It’s just like in our lives, sometimes we try to force things to happen and it doesn’t always end well, often distancing us from other people. On the contrary, when we show love and acceptance, people open themselves up to him. Such is the law of “love expands, fear contracts.” With the power of love and understanding, the Korean leaders eventually signed a peace treaty in April, 2018. This proves that the gentle way is actually a form of strength that can produce positive results. Since our story today involves the wind, let’s make a toy that harnesses the wind! How about a pinwheel?

Rebuilding the Foundation of Sustainability Through Compassion: An Interview with Dr. Sailesh Krishna Rao (vegan), Part 1 of 3

Rebuilding the Foundation of Sustainability Through Compassion: An Interview with Dr. Sailesh Krishna Rao (vegan), Part 1 of 3

Dr. Sailesh Krishna Rao graduated in 1986 from Stanford University, USA, receiving a PhD in Electrical Engineering. Though extremely successful in his professional career, he was inspired to make a significant change after watching former Vice President Al Gore’s presentation about global warming in December 2005. Dr. Rao then founded the non-profit organization, Climate Healers in 2007. “The goal was to reverse climate change, and then when you study the problem you realize that it’s a very spiritual problem because the foundation of sustainability is really compassion for all life, and so is the foundation for all religion, it’s compassion for all life, and the foundation for our ethics is compassion for all life. So it turns out that going to a sustainable world is really going back to our ethical roots and our religious roots and taking them seriously. So the compassion for all life is the core of it all.”

“DanShaRi”: Having Less for a More Enriching Life

“DanShaRi”: Having Less for a More Enriching Life

We should re-examine the relationship between objects and humans, and we should refuse and discard unwanted or unnecessary items. Through repetitive practice, we can forego the attachments to our material belongings and liberate our spirit so that we can live a relaxed and comfortable life. Japanese author Ms. Hideko Yamashita explains and guides us through these areas in her book “DanShaRi.” Practicing DanShaRi is very simple: just give away your unused items. The real significance of discarding them is to ensure that we are the main focus, rather than our possessions. Ms. Hideko Yamashita believes that all our possessions were lent to us from the gods and the Earth. While we own our possessions, we can enjoy and cherish their precious ephemeral usage. Once our affinity ends, we should simply let them go and we can do this with all things. This is the main theme of DanShaRi.

Extraordinary African Ostriches

Today, you will see what makes us ostriches such a unique and exquisite bird, and one to be treasured here on our loving planet. Our incredible eyesight is a great advantage for detecting anything suspicious. Although we can’t fly, we can sustain a running speed of over 50 kilometers or 30 miles per hour for more than an hour. We are the fastest bird on land and the speediest animal on two feet. We use our wings like a rudder, adjusting them to help us turn at high speeds, giving us a dainty running style that any ballerina would envy. Oregon State University, USA, has also seen the potential of our superior leg design and developed a stable, all-terrain bipedal robot. We lay the largest eggs in the world! In the Guinness Book of Records, the biggest recorded egg weighed 5 pounds and 11.36 ounces, or 2.6 kilograms. We can live for over 40 years, and are very adaptable, eating many types of seeds and plants, with the ability to travel long distances to forage for food.

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 4 of 6 July 14, 2019

And Bodhisattvas, Saints, Buddhas are all over, in the ten directions, life after life. They are helping to rescue humans and to lift them up. Of course, friends include Bodhisattvas and Buddhas and Saintly beings. Now, the second type, maybe friend has more than just that. Sometimes, they just happen to be with you for a short while, but then they introduce you to some good teachings or a name of a Master, and it awakens something in you, and then you will go and find more of that teaching or that Master. These are also friends. And we have also invisible friends, like the angels who protect you. Now, there is another group of people; they are "Neutral." They are no harm to you, no good to you. Enemy has two types: outside your circle enemy and inside your circle enemy; we call "secret enemies." The enemy outside, of course, they do things very obviously against you, this is easier to deal with. You can escape, if you know, if you can. Secret enemy is more difficult. They make you even not want to practice anymore. And the worst thing is that they make you lose your belief in the right path to follow, right Master to believe in. These are the worst enemies.

From “Spiritual Gems” – Spiritual Letters from Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji (vegetarian) to Disciples and Seekers, Part 2 of 2

We now continue with letter 115, a message of spiritual advice and encouragement from the Great Master in reply to a devoted disciple. This letter was published in the treasured collection titled “Spiritual Gems.” “No article of this world, nor friends nor relations go with us; even our body does not accompany us after death. Then why worry about those who will not accompany us?” “The [inner Heavenly] Sound Current and the Master are within you. You need no other company. …The greater the solitude, the better. There is no better luck than solitude.” “Try to lift the veil within and try to taste the spiritual joy, compared to which all the worldly designs and inventions are insignificant and valueless. He who has torn the veil within and brought the mind under control, has conquered all the world and the whole world is under his order.”

The Vivacious Vegan Ambassador, Jane 'Unchained' Velez-Mitchell, Part 3 of 3

On today's program, Jane shares her thoughts about how our dietary choices affect our mental wellbeing. She believes that a vegan lifestyle contributes to happiness, while meat consumption can lead to depression. Jane says we can do many things to promote the healthier, happier vegan lifestyle. For example, whenever fast food chains, restaurants, or stores introduce new plant-based products, Jane and her team actively support them. Jane and her volunteer contributors continually seek more ways to promote the vegan lifestyle. They have recently expanded through conducting live interviews with experts, and through music. "There are too many things that we can do every single day to move us toward our goal of a compassionate cruelty free, plant-based world. Supreme Master TV, we are a peaceful force that will change the world! That is changing the world. Carry on! Double down!"

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 3 of 6 July 14, 2019

Now we go back to Lord Mahavira, our good and compassionate Lord. But this is too extreme for me. I don’t wish any Master to ever have to undergo this kind of ascetic life, which is so filled with suffering like this. It’s not necessary at all. I wasn’t born to be looking like an ascetic monk this lifetime. I’m born for you. I was born for this type of people who look through the clothes and the skin to see something more valuable than just the price of the material that I wear. So, it doesn’t matter what the Master looks like. As long as their souls perceive that She speaks, He talks the Truth, they will follow to the end sincerely and diligently. And for these souls, I might have appeal. For ordinary souls, they just look for personality, they look for appearance, they look for demonstration. They look for whatever. You know it, right? So, they will not be able to maintain their determination and faith as long as the so-called Master that they have seen or wanted to believe in doesn’t fit their small little frame.

From “Spiritual Gems” – Spiritual Letters from Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji (vegetarian) to Disciples and Seekers, Part 1 of 2

Baba Sawan Singh Ji was an Indian Saint and enlightened Master. Baba Sawan Singh Ji spiritually awakened many people through imparting the practice of Surat Shabd Yoga. Today, He is still loved and venerated as “The Great Master.” Today, we are honored to read you excerpts from the letters of the Great Master who shared some of His priceless spiritual guidance on meditation, that is, on how one’s soul can overcome the temporal world and ascend to a higher spiritual realms. “To give up worldly pleasures, to control the senses and bring the attention in one center by controlling the wild runs of the mind while still alive and kicking, is not an easy task. But what is it that with love and faith man cannot accomplish? You strengthen your will power and go ahead. Success is sure. Remember that once the seed of Nam has been planted, it must become a tree and bear fruit.”

Zaouli: Côte d’Ivoire’s Mesmerizing Mask Dance

Zaouli: Côte d’Ivoire’s Mesmerizing Mask Dance

Dance is an integral part of the African culture, and today we are delighted to share with you a very exceptional and unique dance form from West Africa. Zaouli is regarded as a homage to feminine beauty. The dance was created in the 1950s by the Gouro, an ethnic group in the midwestern part of Côte d’Ivoire, with each Gouro village having a prized Zaouli dancer. The dance and accompanying music were inscribed on the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2017. Let's now enjoy a spirited Zaouli performance. An interesting component of the distinctive dance is that it is always performed by a male! The costume consists of bright colors. The mask and cloth adorn the body from the head down to the shoulders and arms. They will perform at parties, social gatherings, and funerals. Zaouli is viewed as a peace-making component of West African culture. Ethnic Jewels Magazine describes the dance as “a celebration of calm following conflict.”

Angels in the Operating Room: Tricia Barker's Near Death Experience, Part 3 of 4

Through her near-death experience, Ms. Barker came to understand more clearly how to live a happier, more fulfilling life. She generously shares these concepts with her students, including an insightful technique for overcoming depression. “When you focus on the self, you’re not happy. When you’re focused on giving love to the world, you are happy. When you’re in the flow of God, when you’re giving love to this world, you’re connected to that love again. And sometimes people are hurting so deeply that just meditation is a place to begin to connect a little bit of that peace and that love of God. There’s so many ways to begin that practice. But if you take that time, and you ask for that loving energy of God to come into your life, in that moment, in that meditation, in that prayer, sometimes it does flow through you, and it does take away that fear and that pain.” After 20 years of integrating her phenomenal experience into her life, Ms. Barker wrote a book about her near-death experience and has been grateful about how her book is able to touch others, awakening something within them as well.

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 2 of 6 July 14, 2019

Friends, they are always there when you're in trouble. And their energy will always lend you some help, even though you don't know it; they also don't know about it. But you just feel comforted when you're around them. And you two seem to get on well in many subjects. And of course, "Enemy" is the opposite. We are born in this human body and we are not allowed to know many things. Therefore, a lot of times we do wrong without realizing it, especially without anyone teaching us in advance, without a wise teacher to tell us what's right from wrong. And even then, if somebody taught us, sometimes we still can do wrong because the mind and the maya pushing it; and our karmic background from (past) lives coming back also leading us astray, making us do things wrong; or the situation forces us to do something that we don't like to do, but we just have to. All the Bodhisattvas and the Buddhas warning us that the Bodhisattvas have always been there to help us all the time, even lifting us away from hell, if we were repentant and sincere, and given another chance to redeem our mistakes.
