In response to the floods, our Benevolent Supreme Master Ching Hai also immediately requested in early October 2021: “Please arrange US$30,000 for sending to South Sudan to help flood victims, with all my heartfelt prayers and sorrow for the deceased as well as those alive. May Heaven be kind.” China is a Shining World Leadership Award for Wise Governance recipient and a laureate of six Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion and Shining World Leadership Awards for Protection, Environmental Protection, Wildlife-Protection, and Compassionate Protection. Our sincere appreciation, China, for your compassionate and generous assistance. May the buoyant South Sudanese quickly recover from the disaster and enjoy fulfilling lives in the sheltering grace of the Providence. Educational message to air on British television. Vegan campaigning charity Viva! has produced a 30-second commercial directed at humans who consume animal-people. In the clip, a couple uses their smartphone to order dinner from Just Meat. They are expecting to get pulled pork, but when they answer the doorbell, the delivery person presents them with a live piglet-person and a complimentary butcher knife. The two customers are shocked speechless while a voice-over suggests, “Try going vegan today.” Viva! intends to broadcast the ad just before Valentine’s Day on Channel 4, a public-service TV network in the UK. The organization hopes that a potential audience of 16 million viewers will make the connection between the meat they eat and the conscious beings that must die to provide it. Well done, Viva! May your video motivate many individuals to reconsider their eating habits, in Heavenly upliftment. Vegan: cuz we don’t want the same cruelty 4 ourselves.

Two countries enter their third phase of cooperation. In 2013, Denmark and Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam, began a long-term partnership focused on the Southeast Asian country's transition to a low-carbon economy. The Danish Energy Agency and the Aulacese (Vietnamese) Ministry of Industry and Trade collaborate on energy planning, especially the integration of renewable sources into the power grid. For example, the development of offshore wind farms is an essential part of the program. They also work jointly on cost-effective power applications in the industrial sector. Before the end of 2021, representatives of both nations renewed the contract until 2025, with Denmark pledging technical assistance valued at US$10 million. Hats off to the governments of Denmark and Âu Lạc (Vietnam) for your admirable friendship! In Cosmic delight, may all planetary citizens combine their pursuit of sustainable energy with a transition to the vegan diet for maximum health and happiness. Capital initiative will increase women’s access to money. Owners of small farms throughout Zambia can improve their processing and productivity thanks to a move by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and Zambia National Commercial Bank (Zanaco). A 7-year EIB loan worth €15 million will enable smallholders – primarily women – to invest in their agricultural properties. A training program for sharing information on best practices will maximize the effect of the funds. According to Jutta Urpilainen, European Commissioner for International Partnerships, the overall support strategy will help the sector adapt to climate change. She observed, “It will create jobs, make farmers more resilient, and have an impact on thousands of lives.” The European Union is a recipient of four Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Peace, and a Shining World Leadership Award for Earth Protection; as well as a laureate of two Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism and Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Unconditional World Care and True Caring. Our compliments and gratefulness, EIB and Zanaco, for your efforts to boost food security in Zambia. May those who work the land receive blessings of sunshine and rain, in Divine proportion. Older refugees offer to educate the younger ones. Fort McCoy, an army base in Wisconsin, USA, is housing approximately 13,000 Afghans who were able to leave their country following the Taliban’s takeover. Three of the temporary residents had attended Asian University for Women in Bangladesh and were concerned that the children in the camp had nothing to do. So, they decided to start a makeshift school called Rise Again, where lessons include English, mathematics, and cultural information on life in the United States. The project has attracted about 200 students and 20 teachers, including some soldiers from the base. Thank you, Rise Again’s founders and the kindhearted volunteer staff. We pray that the Afghans who are rebuilding their lives in a new land will be blessed with a conducive environment where they can develop their potential, in the abundant Mercy of Allah.

European startup expands across the Atlantic. Heura Foods is one of Spain’s fastest-growing plant-based companies. It was founded in 2017 with a vision to transform the future of sustenance. In addition to being 100% vegan, their products feature high-quality ingredients, excellent nutritional value, and incredible taste. Four of the firm’s creations – plant-based chicken chunks and strips, plant-based burgers, and plant-based meatballs – are now available at more than 220 Walmart stores in Mexico. Marc Coloma, Heura’s co-founder and CEO, commented, “With nearly 130 million people living in Mexico, we recognize the power of its people to change the food system into one that’s designed to protect the things we all love: the planet, people, and animals.” Our heartfelt applause, Heura, for walking the talk and helping to abolish meat consumption. May humanity soon awaken and embrace the vegan lifestyle, in Heaven’s radiance. New system helps protect drivers and animal-pedestrians. Interstate 25 is a major highway and the main north-south route through Colorado, USA. The segment between Denver and Colorado Springs became a trouble spot, as motorists frequently collided with individuals from the wildlife kingdom trying to cross the road. To mitigate the situation, the state’s Department of Transportation cooperated with the Parks and Wildlife division to construct four new underpasses and renovate an existing one. Additionally, about 45 kilometers of fencing were installed to guide roaming animal-people towards the broad and risk-free thoroughfares. As species in the region become acquainted with the openings and form new habits, officials anticipate a 90% reduction in traffic accidents. Colorado is a Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion laureate. Kudos to the state agencies and personnel who made traveling safer for human and animal co-inhabitants. May we extend round-the-clock protection to all sentient beings by consistently choosing plant-based nutrition, in Celestial benediction. Here’s a funny to put a smile on your face. It’s called “Customer Satisfaction.” At an orientation meeting for new employees, the hiring manager was explaining the corporate culture. “I want you all to understand that the key to success is to go the extra mile. Always try to go beyond what is expected of you. Is that clear?” “I just want to say that my last job wasn’t like that. The customers I worked with didn’t like it when I went the extra mile.” “Please remind me what your previous job was.” “I was a taxi driver.” ?! And now we have a heartline from Rieko in Japan: I am thankful to Beloved Master and the Supreme Master team.

When I asked myself again, “What is my dream?” My deep thought was, “To be liberated!” At the moment, in addition to the work that I do, I also practice veganism and work on purifying myself and studying Master’s lectures. I pray that the day will come when I can receive initiation. And I also pray for peace and hope for the world!

Today, we are honored to share with you excerpts from Chapters 8 through 13 of “Pistis Sophia.” Let us continue with the Vesture (clothing) of (inner Heavenly) Light which has been given to Lord Jesus Christ, and its power and magnificence. “‘And in this [third] Vesture (clothing), which we have just sent thee, is the glory of the name of the mystery of the Revealer, which is the First Commandment, and of the mystery of the five Impressions, and of the mystery of the great Envoy of the Ineffable (God), who is the great Light, and of the mystery of the five Leaders, who are the five Helpers. There is further in this Vesture the glory of the name of the mystery of all orders of the emanations (original source) of the Treasury of the Light and of their saviors, and [of the mystery] of the orders of the orders, which are the seven Amens and the seven Voices and the five Trees and the three Amens and the Twin-savior, that is the Child of the Child, and of the mystery of the nine guards of the three gates of the Treasury of the Light.’”“‘It came to pass then, when I saw the mystery of all these words in the Vesture which was sent me, that straightaway I clothed myself therewith, and I shone most exceedingly and soared into the height.’”“‘I entered into the houses of the sphere, shining most exceedingly, and there was no measure to the (inner Heavenly) Light that was about me. And all the rulers and all those who are in that sphere, fell into agitation one against another. And they saw the great (inner Heavenly) Light that was about me, and they gazed upon my Vesture and saw thereon the mystery of their name.’”“‘And I left that region behind me and came to the gate of the second sphere, which is the Fate. Then were all its gates thrown into agitation and opened of themselves. And I entered into the houses of the Fate, shining most exceedingly, and there was no measure for the (inner Heavenly) Light that was about me, for I shone in the Fate forty-and-nine times more than in the [first] sphere.’”“‘And all the rulers and all those who are in the Fate, were thrown into agitation and fell on one another and were in exceeding great fear on seeing the great (inner Heavenly) Light that was about me. And they gazed on my Vesture of (inner Heavenly) Light and saw the mystery of their name on my Vesture and fell into still greater agitation; and they were in great fear, saying: 'How hath the Lord of the universe passed through us without our knowing?'"

The Celts were members of an ethnic group that shared a similar language, art, culture, and religion. They roamed across Europe and lived in countries such as France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Spain, Britain, and Ireland, dwelling in windowless roundhouses built either on hill forts or clustered together on small farms, or in enclosed settlements.Celtic art has its origins in the Celtic people and has appeared throughout the continent from the Bronze Age to the present day. Its source and development can be studied from the carvings, sculptures, metalwork, and woodwork of the ancient Celts. The artwork is generally ornamental and consists of beautiful geometric shapes with spirals, knots, interlaced animal-people, and key patterns avoiding straight lines. The ancient Celts believed in many gods and in an afterlife. Celtic priests, known as druids, taught the doctrine of transmigration of souls. Celtic art drew inspiration from religion and reflects an understanding of the spiritual world.Let’s now take a closer look at the development of Celtic art throughout history. Celtic art spans many cultures across various regions of Europe and may even date back to the Neolithic or New Stone Age. The history of Celtic art styles and influences can be divided into the Hallstatt period, the La Tène period, the Medieval period, and the Celtic Revival movement. The Hallstatt period, named after a town in Upper Austria in which many Hallstatt artifacts have been found, spans from around 800 to 450 BC, during the early Iron Age in Europe. Compared with the earlier Hallstatt era, the La Tène period was one of greater affluence and deeper knowledge of materials and technology used in metalwork, gold smithery, jewelry, and other decorative crafts, and it was also a period of wider cultural interchange. Celtic art in the medieval period was practiced by the peoples of the British Isles between the 5th and 12th centuries AD. During the Christian period, Irish art was influenced by both the Mediterranean and Germanic arts; the latter through the Irish association with the Anglo-Saxons, thus creating what became known as Insular or Hiberno-Saxon art.

Today, we are excited to present to you a forward-thinking social justice advocate and plant-based entrepreneur, Ms. Christie Lagally, from Seattle, USA, who walked away from a stellar career at aerospace giant Boeing to seek viable solutions for a world in peril. In 2017, Christie launched her startup Rebellyous Foods, a.k.a. Seattle Food Tech, which makes exceptional plant-based meat alternatives and equipment for plant-based meat manufacturing. In 2021, Rebellyous Foods was awarded the ‘sofi Award’ in the plant-based protein category by Specialty Food Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to nurturing specialty food standouts since 1972. “I personally feel like animals are just like us, they're just in a different form. I really feel like animals are definitely sentient beings.” Christie also believes that virtually all our ills on Earth today can be traced to the animal-people raising industry – including environmental degradation, species extinction, world hunger, water shortages, global economic woes, public health deterioration, social inequity, societal moral decay, pandemics, and global warming. Christie went on to work as a senior scientist for GFI from 2016 to 2018 and learned about the vast potential of plant-based meat as a way to diminish the harms of the animal-people industry. “So there's an obvious solution to the amount of meat production that we do in the world, which is: let's see if we can replace it.” “Because plant-based meat is not a true solution to climate change, human health, animal welfare, or pandemic prevention, unless everybody has access to it. It's not going to do us any good to be less than 1% of the market; it has to be 10, 15, hopefully, 100% of the market one day.” After years of hard work, Christie and her team of more than 30 food experts and engineers debuted an innovative system of plant-based meat-making in 2021 that cuts the typical manufacturing cost by an astounding 60%.
Veganism: The Noble Way of Living
2022-01-11 245 Views
The living Master is your best refuge. The past Master can also help you to some certain extent. (Yes.) But cannot lead you to enlightenment. Not so quickly, not so easily. (Yes, Master.) (Right.) Can teach you something. Can appear to you sometimes, help you in times of trouble, if you’re sincere and if you have some affinity. But not enlightenment. You need a living Master. Like, there is another similar story, like one guy who went up to Heavens and then he is given a nice place to stay. But when he’s hungry, he found nothing to eat, nothing to drink. So, he went and asked the governing Saint how to find food to eat and drink. The governing Saint had a look into the book of his life, and he said, “When you were alive, did you give anybody anything when they needed, when they asked for it?” He said, “No.” “Did you offer somebody a drink when they’re thirsty and asked for it?” “No.” So, the saint said, “Well, then you have nothing here. (Wow.) You will only have what you have given others. Then the essence of it will be stored in your house in Heaven for you. Since you gave nothing, everything you used was just for yourself, then it died with you, Nothing’s left over for you here.” Oh, so the newly Heavenly born was so scared. He said, “Oh, please, can I do anything about it?” The Saint said, “Not now. It’s too late.” So, he begged the Saint, he said, “Please, please, give me a few more weeks and I’ll come back. I’ll come back after I give everything that I still can give in the physical world and then I can come back.” So, the Saint felt sorry for him, let him go back home, (Oh.) the Earthly home, and then he gave everything, everything, everything, whatever he had, and gave poor people food, gave homeless people somewhere to stay, gave good drink, good medicine, everything, whatever he could, he gave. And then he even told all his friends and relatives the story, so they should do the same before it’s too late.Similar story, (Yes, Master.) but this is even for such a simple Heaven. For the Higher Heaven, you can’t just bribe like that. For Higher Heaven, you have to use a connection with that Heaven. Like the (inner Heavenly) Melodies and the (inner Heavenly) Light – these are the connections with the Higher Heaven. (Yes, understand.) You must walk with them in order to reach the best place you can find, or at least before the best place, there’s some higher place to rest and to continue the journey.If you’re lucky enough to have a Master while you’re alive, over there, She/He will continue to teach you until you reach higher and higher and higher, highest possible Heaven. (Yes, Master.) Tim Qo Tu Land is very good, good enough already, no need to go further. People who went to even the Astral City, or the Second Level, Third Level, Forth Level, Fifth Level, etc., they’re very, very contented already. Do you understand me? (Yes, Master.) These are the extra bodies, extra celestial bodies that’s been built by the merit of some Saints, some great Masters, for Their followers and for the virtuous ones, not too virtuous, but somebody prayed for you, you may go to the Astral City Heaven. That’s the First Level, and then between Second Level and Third Level, there’re other planes of consciousness and you can go there, if you have more merit, but not the normal Second Level, this is extra, just like extra Astral City. (Yes. Master.) It’s built by the merit and vows, great vows of some Saints in the past. They built it, so you can pass through. So, the Five Holy Names that’s passed on to you, these are from the great Masters from the past. Nevertheless, They also sometimes dispatch someone to take care. The great Masters don’t necessarily reside there anymore. They come and go. If They want to, They can come back and teach the people who have affinity with them. Otherwise, Their subordinates, Their assistants can do the job, They don’t have to reside there, even if They built it. (Yes, Master.) But the real Brahma, He’s a creator of the physical domain. It’s a different one. (Yes, Master.) Different than the Holy Names that you have been taught at the time of initiation. Capish? (Yes, Master.) How come all so quiet? Really, you understand? (Yes, we understand Master.) OK, Good, so now you know. That’s why all the devils bow to the Five Holy Names. They are the Kings of these Worlds, of these built-by-merit Worlds. Good. (Yes, Master.) (Yes.) Ordinary people will just go to the ordinary Astral Level. (Yes.) (Right.) Unless they have somebody, like if their mother, sister, brother was enlightened when they were alive, and they have connection and somebody prayed for them, also, then they can go to the special Astral City or Second Level City or Third Level – between. (Yes, Master.) Between the physical creation, there are extra celestial bodies built simply by the merit and power of some past Masters. (Yes, Master.) And these are the planes that humans with the Quan Yin Method can pass through, or their relatives. (Yes, Master.) Or have connection with the Master, or the relatives who practice the Quan Yin Method. And even not just after they die. In this physical world, they will also be protected to some degree by the merit of their relatives or family members connected with the enlightened Master. (Yes, Master.) The greater the Master, the higher they will go, the more protection. But they also must meditate and keep the precepts, and eat vegan, and all that. (Yes, Master.) Then, it is easier for the Master to help their relatives and friends. It’s quicker. Otherwise, it takes longer, or it might not happen if the person who is connected with the disciples of a Master is doing a great sin, then they also cannot be spared, like during pandemic or hell sentence. (Yes, Master.) Remember one of the foremost disciples of the Buddha, (Yes.) Maudgalyayana? (Yes.) His mother committed a great sin, cheating the Buddha’s monks and made them eat meat. (Yes, Master.) So it’s not because you are initiated by a great Master, then your relatives or friends automatically go to Heaven. No. Can do if they just don’t do any great sin. (Yes, Master.) A small sin maybe easy to wipe out, but a great sin, cannot. (Yes.) The Buddha listed many sins that cannot even be repented and saved. Like killing the Buddha, killing parents, or killing unborn babies. (Yes, Master.) These, even if the person who committed it were to repent, he cannot be saved. You see that? (Wow.) (Yes, Master.) That’s terrible.So, many people who do not study Buddhism, they don’t understand the consequences of their actions. Buddhism is more extensive. (Yes, Master.) Buddha lived long and He explained many things. So, all religions teach good things. But it depends on how wide, how broad, how extensive the teaching of that Master, the people will understand more. But even the Buddhists, they don’t understand all this. They don’t research into all the sutras to know more. (Yes.) All they do is just go to any monk and say they take refuge in them, even if the monk doesn’t have any merit. Then they make donations and then put some apples on the altar of the Buddha, and take back the apples home to eat for blessing. That’s all they know. (Right.) And they do many other bad things. Well, it’s minimized, of course. Because of the Buddhist teachings, they would think twice or they would repent, or they would do something to stop their bad deeds or to cover it, or redeem it. Some can be redeemable. But not without a living Master. The living Master is your best refuge. The past Master can also help you to some certain extent. (Yes.) But cannot lead you to enlightenment. Not so quickly, not so easily. (Yes, Master.) (Right.) Can teach you something. Can appear to you sometimes, help you in times of trouble, if you’re sincere and if you have some affinity. But not enlightenment. You need a living Master. (Yes, Master.) Electricity needs a living, functioning electric pole, electric cable to connect. (Yes, Master.) Any questions from the story? (No.) (No, Master.) You’re all sleepy? (No.) (No, Master.) No. So, we go sleep now? Anything else?(Master, You said, “Remind me to tell you how I feel stuff?”) Oh, yeah, yeah. When was that then? When did I tell you that? (You said that earlier, when You were…) Yeah, but what connection? (During the story, when the… The slave become the king. Exiled to island. When they knew that they were going to be exiled to the island and they knew that there was a good place waiting for them.) Oh, I see, I see. OK. Yeah, yeah. Just sometimes I am homesick. (Yes.) Just like that. I feel that way, too. Because this is just a temporary kingdom. (Right.) Whatever you have is just temporary, and later you leave with nothing. You have nothing on your body. Oh, maybe you wear some clothes or you put some lipstick on, but do you care about that if you have to go to hell? (No, Master.) No matter what much makeup you put on your face, or how beautiful, expensive clothes they put on your body, you don’t know where you’re going. Because it’s a wild island, just like in the story. It’s something that you never knew before. You don’t even know what hell looks like. You heard. Many Masters say it, but you cannot imagine how much suffering, how painful to live there. Like the wild island, just put you there without anything. (Yes, Master.) Not even clothes, just rags and then no food, nothing. Just leave you there to die, (Yes.) die in agony. So, many people do not prepare for the afterlife. I understand that feeling.But that is too far-fetched. We don’t even talk about that. Some days I have to proof some of the Cinema Scene that you want to air. (Yes, Master.) And one day you gave me the cartoon, the film called “Heidi.” (Yes, Master.) Some cartoons I did not approve because there’s some meat and stuff in it. (Yes, Master.) And some killing of worm-people and snail-people, and I did not want children to learn from it, to think that it’s nothing, that it’s OK to do. (Yes, Master.) (Right, Master. Yes.) Because children they love cartoons. (Yes.) So, it gives them the impression that to kill the earthworm-people and snail-people is OK. I did not allow that. So, we aired another film. (Yes, Master.) While watching it, even without these parts, the film was very, very interesting. It makes me feel very nostalgic about a simple life.

Please, no more abortions! Please listen with your heart to the babies’ eagerness to come into the world
Please, no more abortions! Please listen with your heart to the babies’ eagerness to come into the world
WhenI watched on Supreme Master TV about abortion, I became very frightened thatit’d become a vehicle for devils. Iremember that I once incidentally saw the soul of a baby boy lying on theshoulder of one of my male colleagues. “Did you ask your girlfriend to get anabortion?” I couldn’t help asking him. He was shocked and asked, “How do youknow? Only my girlfriend and I know this.” Itold him that the baby was lying on his shoulder, saying in tremendous pain andgrief that he shouldn’t have terminated the baby’s life. The baby had waited along time to be reincarnated as a human, and now his life was taken away. Asyou sow, so shall you reap. The baby’s soul will stay with him and hisgirlfriend till the end of their lives! Therefore,do not ever have an abortion. The unborn soul finally got a chance to become ahuman but was killed ruthlessly. The poor soul! Thank You, Master, forreminding humankind of their misconception. And thank you, Supreme Master TV,for presenting positive news. Tien-Yun from Taiwan (Formosa) Please,no more abortions! Children are truly a gift endowed by God. I dreamt that Iwas pregnant and then found I had truly conceived a baby. Because of myconstitution, I’ve not been feeling well. However, I constantly feel theBlessings from Heaven. I often talk and write cards to my baby, sharing myfeelings. I believe that the baby can sense what I feel. Mybelief has grown stronger since I became aware of the child’s movements in mywomb. The baby responds whenever I ask a question. One day, when I was playingthe music I often listen to, miraculously, my baby moved along with the beat.Both my husband and I saw bumps, either from the baby’s little hands or feet,appear on my belly. We were amazed and overwhelmed with joy. This clearlyproves that the baby does have feelings even before birth. Please listen withyour heart to the babies’ eagerness to come into the world. Please help protectthese innocent lives! Chih-Ya from Taiwan (Formosa) ConcernedTien-Yun and Chih-Ya, Thank you both for your important messages. We share yourdistress knowing that precious unborn children are killed every day and praythat governments around the world swiftly pass legislation to protect theseirreplaceable human lives from abortion. Thank you for voicing thesesentiments, awakening others to the sacred right to life of all growing fetusesas determined by Heavens. May the Godses embrace and nurture you and visionaryTaiwan (Formosa), Supreme Master TV team P.S. Master hasthis supportive reply for you: “Endearing Tien-Yun and Chih-Ya,may the Buddhas bless you and the baby. Your caring words echo mine on thesanctity of life in the womb and enlightening others to these truths. I prayall human beings may come to know their Divine nature within as then, we willhave no more senseless killing of humans or animal-people. Much Love and mayHeavens hear our prayers for Paradise on Earth, bringing abundance andwell-being to all, including you and your good-natured Taiwanese (Formosan)co-citizens.”

In today’s news, United States agency assists Zimbabwe amid food insecurity, new COVID strain detected in France, Navajo Nation implements indoor ban on tobacco and e-cigarette usage, new artificial intelligence robot produces attractive art, benevolent woman celebrated for bringing educational opportunities to rural girls in China, online vegan review platform ranks cities of future worldwide, and Australian children help wombat-people by warning drivers to slow down. United States government provides humanitarian aid to Zimbabwe. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has allocated US$5.7 million to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to help Zimbabweans facing food insecurity in urban and rural areas. The WFP Urban Resilience Programme and the Food Assistance for Assets Programme will assist 320,000 households across the country by providing livelihood opportunities and helping to improve their capacity to deal with the effects of climate change and COVID-19. With 5.3 million food insecure individuals in the country, the projects will continue to contribute urgent food assistance to the most vulnerable people, while efforts to develop sustainability such as urban hydroponic vegetable gardening are seeded. The United States is a recipient of five Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, three Shining World Leadership Awards for Good Governance, seven Shining World Leadership Awards for Promoting Healthy Living, and Shining World Leadership Awards for Good Governor, Justice, Protection, and Environmental Protection; and a laureate of 24 Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, three Shining World Leadership Awards for Protection, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Loving Care, a Shining World Leadership Award for Good Governance, a Shining World Peace Leader Award, Shining World Caring Leadership Award, and Shining World Super Loving Care Leadership Award. Our sincere gratitude, USAID, for your generous contribution to help people in need and many thanks, WFP, for your vital assistance. May the gentle Zimbabweans soon have a prosperous and brighter future, in God’s tender Embrace. New strain of COVID-19 with altered spike protein appears in France. A COVID strain found in the nation’s Brittany region has unprecedented deletions in the spike protein, which is the primary mechanism to infect cells and spread the virus within the body. Detecting B.1.640 took much longer than usual because of how different it is from other variants. In October 2021, 18 children in France from the same school were infected as well as six adults who had contact with them. Unfortunately, cases of the variant have since been seen elsewhere in Europe. It is expected that vaccinated people’s immune systems will have a more difficult time detecting the virus because of its mutations. It is such concerning news on the outbreak of another new strain of COVID-19. We pray that the vegan solution will soon be enacted by all governments and people, so as to see an end of the karma causing zoonotic diseases, in Divine magnanimity. No 2 vegan: only decent people choose it. Up next, Navajo Nation implements indoor ban on tobacco and e-cigarette usage. We are going to thank the cabin safety instructors who teach the flight and cabin crew about new and existing aviation safety standards.

Life is so generous when you’re generous with life, too! This is the principle of the kindhearted vegan way. And it’s just imbued with love! Here is a tip on how to control how much time you’re spending on social media apps like YouTube. For Android phones, tap on Settings, then Digital Wellbeing & parental controls, and then choose Dashboard. Select the YouTube app from the list that appears. Pick “app timer” once the page for YouTube opens and set a daily time limit for using it. There is a similar function for iPhone users called “Screen Time.” These tools should help you become more efficient with your time! Lots of love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all of us humans and all co-inhabitants alike. And thank you for watching. Now, the weather around the world. Navajo Nation implements indoor smoking ban. The largest Native American nation, with territory occupying portions of the US states of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, has approved the Air is Life Act, which will enhance public health thanks to its permanent prohibition on indoor smoking. The ban was signed by Navajo Nation President, His Excellency Jonathan Nez, who cited the legislation as protecting the Navajo people’s fundamental right to breathe clean air. The law prohibits the use of tobacco products and electronic cigarettes in public buildings and workspaces and includes a 7.6-meter buffer zone around buildings. President Nez lauded the work of the Air is Life coalition, stating that their efforts for over 13 years in educating the public about secondhand smoke’s health risks had resulted in the smoking ban. Our appreciation, Navajo Nation and Your Excellency Jonathan Nez. May the residents and guests of your ancient lands enjoy good health and long life thanks to wise policies like this, in Celestial support. Artificial intelligence (AI) software creates world-class artwork. An international team of engineers and artists have created an AI robot called Botto that can create amazing artwork. The cumulative sales of its pieces have been over US$1 million to date. Botto learns by analyzing millions of pieces of art, which helps it to understand different styles and tastes, and it can produce everything from deconstructed portraits to vibrant landscapes. Each week, 350 pieces are made, and a community of 5,000 people vote on their favorites. One is then chosen to be sold as a digital NFT (non-fungible token) on a platform called SuperRare, and the proceeds are reinvested into the project. Wonderful news, artists and engineers from around the world, on your remarkable creation that can produce attractive art. In Heaven’s jubilance, may Botto’s artwork help to inspire the artistic side in all who see them, as we learn to humbly express our gentle, innate creative nature. Selfless woman honored for advancing rural girls’ education in China. In a book published by the Chinese government entitled “A Brief History of the People's Republic of China,” Zhang Guimei, the founder and principal of Huaping High School for Girls, was lauded for her dedication to providing free education to underprivileged females in China’s Yunnan province. Since founding the high school in 2008, Madam Zhang has visited more than 1,600 households in a remote mountainous part of the province to encourage them to send their daughters to school. To date, nearly 2,000 students have graduated from the institution and many have been admitted to universities. The 64-year-young educator, who was recently honored with the “8th National Moral Model” award, said, “To educate a girl is to change the destiny of three generations.” You are a true inspiration, Zhang Guimei! In Buddha’s guidance, may we always support our youth to help them realize their full potential. “Then the sinner who has been killing living beings, at the end of his life falls from his state, and against his will he goes to the world of the Asuras, to the dark place.” Asuras means powerful superhuman demigods with good or bad qualities. ~ Uttaradhyayana Sutra (Jainism) Coming up, online vegan review platform ranks cities of future worldwide. We’ll pause for a moment to be grateful to the fresh mornings that fill us with new enthusiasm and energy to start the day. Supreme Master Television will return in just a moment with more lively news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Cooling News for a Friendly World. Online vegan review platform reveals best cities for conscious citizens. Singapore-based abillion is dedicated to helping a billion people live more sustainably through a vegan lifestyle and recently released a list of the 20 best cities in the world ranked in terms of plant-based living, green policy commitment, greenhouse gas emissions and waste generated. The results were obtained by analyzing 850,000 user reviews. The top five cities of the group are: London, United Kingdom; Los Angeles, United States; Barcelona, Spain; Melbourne, Australia; and Singapore. Vikas Garg, founder of abillion, commented, “our report highlights how leading cities around the world have been making strides to being kinder on the planet and its residents — human and animal alike.” Thank you, Vikas Garg and abillion team, for helping to highlight the best cities for vegans and environmentally concerned people. In the care of the Providence, may the plant-based trend soon lead to the end of all meat consumption, as we cherish our choice to live in love. Australian children create signboards to warn drivers to watch for wombat-people. Youngsters in Sedgwick, Central Victoria, have made colorful signs cautioning drivers to be careful of wombat-people who may be on North Harcourt Road. The signs were placed in convenient spots for drivers to see. Currently, there are only two official signs along the 10-kilometer road informing drivers of wildlife-people crossings. Theo Bentley, nine-years-old, and one of the sign creators, explained how sad it made him feel that wombat-people had lost their lives due to accidents with vehicles. Other residents have supported the children’s efforts by petitioning the City of Greater Bendigo Council to increase the number of road signs and decrease the speed limit. Our praises, compassionate youngsters and all involved residents, for your efforts to protect precious people from the wombat kingdom. May drivers take extra care to safeguard all wildlife individuals as we tread gently and caringly on our shared planet, in God’s protective Gaze. A delightful, bubbly moment is ahead, and this joke of the day will pretty much guarantee it. It’s called, “Good Taste.” A boy approaches a girl and asks her a question. “Hi, I was wondering, do you like me?” “Sorry, but I have to say no, I don’t like you.” “Oh, it’s okay. Not everyone has good taste.” ?! And now we have a heartline from Tien-Yun and Chih-Ya in Taiwan, also known as Formosa: When I watched on Supreme Master TV about abortion, I became very frightened that it’d become a vehicle for devils. I remember that I once incidentally saw the soul of a baby boy lying on the shoulder of one of my male colleagues. “Did you ask your girlfriend to get an abortion?” I couldn’t help asking him. He was shocked and asked, “How do you know? Only my girlfriend and I know this.” I told him that the baby was lying on his shoulder, saying in tremendous pain and grief that he shouldn’t have terminated the baby’s life. The baby had waited a long time to be reincarnated as a human, and now his life was taken away. As you sow, so shall you reap. The baby’s soul will stay with him and his girlfriend till the end of their lives! Therefore, do not ever have an abortion. The unborn soul finally got a chance to become a human but was killed ruthlessly. The poor soul! Thank You, Master, for reminding humankind of their misconception. And thank you, Supreme Master TV, for presenting positive news. Tien-Yun from Taiwan (Formosa) Please, no more abortions! Children are truly a gift endowed by God. I dreamt that I was pregnant and then found I had truly conceived a baby. Because of my constitution, I’ve not been feeling well. However, I constantly feel the Blessings from Heaven. I often talk and write cards to my baby, sharing my feelings. I believe that the baby can sense what I feel. My belief has grown stronger since I became aware of the child’s movements in my womb. The baby responds whenever I ask a question. One day, when I was playing the music I often listen to, miraculously, my baby moved along with the beat. Both my husband and I saw bumps, either from the baby’s little hands or feet, appear on my belly. We were amazed and overwhelmed with joy. This clearly proves that the baby does have feelings even before birth. Please listen with your heart to the babies’ eagerness to come into the world. Please help protect these innocent lives! Chih-Ya from Taiwan (Formosa) Concerned Tien-Yun and Chih-Ya, Thank you both for your important messages. We share your distress knowing that precious unborn children are killed every day and pray that governments around the world swiftly pass legislation to protect these irreplaceable human lives from abortion. Thank you for voicing these sentiments, awakening others to the sacred right to life of all growing fetuses as determined by Heavens. May the Godses embrace and nurture you and visionary Taiwan (Formosa), Supreme Master TV team P.S. Master has this supportive reply for you: “Endearing Tien-Yun and Chih-Ya, may the Buddhas bless you and the baby. Your caring words echo mine on the sanctity of life in the womb and enlightening others to these truths. I pray all human beings may come to know their Divine nature within as then, we will have no more senseless killing of humans or animal-people. Much Love and may Heavens hear our prayers for Paradise on Earth, bringing abundance and well-being to all, including you and your good-natured Taiwanese (Formosan) co-citizens.” Vegan: cuz we aren’t the destroyer of God’s creation. We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal-people clips. Please send them via SupremeMasterTV.com/heartlineWe sure have enjoyed spending time with you on Noteworthy News. May you and your loved ones be blessed with inner tranquility and contentment.

“Pistis Sophia,” meaning “Faith-Wisdom,” or “Faith in the Light,” is a Gnostic scripture of teachings given by Lord Jesus Christ in the 11 years following His resurrection.Today, it is an honor to share with you excerpts from Chapters 8 through 13 of “Pistis Sophia,” where the Lord Jesus Christ reveals the Divine happenings which were set in place before He and His disciples were born on Earth, as well as the role of the First Mystery, in all that has happened. “And Jesus continued again in the discourse and said: ‘It came to pass then thereafter, that at the command of the First Mystery I looked down on the world of mankind and found Mary, who is called “my mother” according to the body of matter. I spoke with Her in the type of Gabriel, and when She had turned Herself to the height towards me, I cast thence into Her the first power which I had received from Barbelo – that is the body which I have borne in the height. And instead of the soul I cast into Her the power which I have received from the great Sabaoth (the hosts of Heaven), the Good, who is in the region of the Right.’” “‘This [power], which from the beginning I brought out of myself, I have cast into the First Commandment, and the First Commandment cast a portion thereof into the great (inner Heavenly) Light, and the great Light cast a portion of that which it had received, into the five Helpers, and the last Helper took a portion of that which it received, and cast it into the Mixture. And [this portion] is in all who are in the Mixture, as I have just said unto you.’” “‘Lo, I have then put on my Vesture, and all authority hath been given me through the First Mystery. Yet a little while and I will tell you the mystery of the universe and the fulness of the universe; and I will hide nothing from you from this hour on. I will tell you all mysteries from the exteriors of the exteriors to the interiors of the interiors. But hearken that I may tell you all things which have befallen me.’” “‘O Mystery, which is without in the world, for whose sake the universe hath arisen, – this is the total outgoing and the total ascent, which hath emanated (originated) all emanations (original sources) and all that is therein and for whose sake all mysteries and all their regions have arisen, – come hither unto us, for we are thy fellow-members. We are all with thyself; we are one and the same.’”

Spiritual Evolution and the Devastating Effects of Eating Meat: Interview with David Barreto (vegan), Part 1 of 2
Spiritual Evolution and the Devastating Effects of Eating Meat: Interview with David Barreto (vegan), Part 1 of 2
David Barreto is an author, a researcher on spirituality and science, and a lecturer in quantum physics in London, UK. For more than 20 years, David has been studying spirituality and has also completed academic studies in various sciences, including astrophysics, cosmology, and neuropsychology. David recently released the book “Spiritual Evolution in the Animal Kingdom: Karma, Reincarnation and the Repercussions of Eating Meat,” in which he discusses the spirituality of animal-people, their reincarnation process, and why eating meat seriously degrades our spiritual bodies. “Sometimes, as humanity, we think that animals are just animated beings out there. And that is so wrong, because they have a spirit; they are evolving in their own lives, in their own worlds. They are here on planet Earth to evolve, to grow spiritually, like we are. And we are going towards the same direction, humans and animals. We are just in different states of evolution now, spiritual evolution.” David next explains that our animal-people co-inhabitants are here to help us and that even tiny insect-people are important. Spider-people, for example, have an energetic role. Our most gracious Supreme Master Ching Hai can speak telepathically with animal-people and frequently speaks about the remarkable gifts they bring. She shares a story about the loving kindness of a tiny spider-person She once met. “Oh, so many animal-people are so incredibly kind, not just my dog-person. Even today, outside of my door, there is a spider-person. He spun a web where I would hang my clothes in the sun to dry, and I tried to shake him away, he didn’t go. He came back and mended his net again, so I was feeling strange that he’s so persisting to build a house there. I asked him, ‘Why did you insist to put up your tent here? The house in front of my door like this makes it difficult for me to come out and to hang my clothes.’ So, and then he told me, ‘Because You need protection.’ How can a spider-person protect me? Imagine. It’s just the invisible things. So he (the spider-person) said, ‘Because You need protection.’ My God, such a small little creature-being like that. I was so touched.”

Successful Refugees and Immigrants Leading the Way, Part 19 of a Multi-part Series: Supermodel Adut Akech
Successful Refugees and Immigrants Leading the Way, Part 19 of a Multi-part Series: Supermodel Adut Akech
Today, we are going to introduce to you a beautiful South Sudanese-Australian supermodel, Adut Akech, who was born in what is now South Sudan, grew up in a refugee camp in Kenya, and immigrated with her family to Australia when she was eight years old. Now, Ms. Akech, only 22 years old, is a well-known fashion model worldwide. As a prominent member of the fashion world who cares for others, Adut has participated in the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)’s #EveryoneCounts social media campaign to support refugees worldwide. Her refugee background has made her achievements incredible and inspiring. Hunger and fear were the norm in the camp. However, those years also taught her the power of gratitude and developed her inner strength. In Adelaide, thanks to the Australian government, Ms. Akech had the opportunity to receive an education. She said, “I was this tall, super-shy, awkward kid. I had a weird name, and a gap tooth.” She told Allure magazine that one day, the mindset of “I don’t care” entered into her mind, and “I told myself I was beautiful.” Ms. Akech started her professional modeling career at the age of 15. In December 2018, Adut Akech was named Model of the Year by those in the fashion industry. Ms. Akech was honored the following year with the Model of the Year title from the British Fashion Council. Growing up in a refugee camp, Adut has accomplished remarkable success in five years. Within that timeframe, she has made an impact in the modeling industry by speaking out for refugees and against racism. “I want to help people to understand that refugees are normal people, just like everybody else,” she said during a British Vogue cover shoot in New York, USA, in 2019. “You know I come from nothing. I'm a refugee, and I'm very proud of that. That's just… it's a part of my story. That's who I am, and it's something that I'll never ever be ashamed of.” She said to i-D magazine, “I don’t want to be known as just a model - I want to be remembered as someone who did something, someone who made a big impact.”

So, this is the story that reminds us that there is not just this world that exists. We will leave it. No matter how rich we are, we will leave. Because we’ve been toiling all our lifetime just to earn our comfort living or richness, but then, we will have to leave it with nothing, and alone. (Yes, Master.) And don’t even know what fate awaits us. “So yesterday, he was a king, but today, he will never find any friend. (Oh.) Even, the lowest level in our country, like servants and all that. No one will be with him (Oh.) in this hour of need.” I should have talked to you a few days ago when I was having inspiration to do so. But it was too busy. I was too busy. Too much work to do. Today, I saw not a lot of work, so I immediately called you before it’s too late again. And maybe today is my low day. Too much work those days, so today, even if I want to try, it’s different timing already. (Yes, Master.) (Understand, Master.) Already too much physical and mental power has been spent. It’s good that I still have a good mood at least. I’m not beginning to yell at you or anything. You count it as lucky. Wow! Yesterday, he was aglorious, dignified king. And today, he became a beggar, (Wow.) and exiled to an island. Wild island. Uninhabited island. (Wow.) “Then he has fallen into terrible suffering and dire need situation. No one even cared about him. And the same people and citizens, one year ago, had welcomed him and put him onto the golden throne, and now, they are too busy running out to welcome another one. (Oh.) And to make another one their king. The one that God has sent to them every year. ‘Your Majesty, this is the custom of our country. We don’t remember since when it has begun. But we know for sure that it cannot be changed.’ After hearing thus, the king said to his prime minister, ‘Ah. Hearing you and your attitude, I feel like you are a very loving, caring person. So, taking this opportunity, I ask you where are those kings before me? Please tell me whether or not, those kings before me, when they were still on the king’s throne, did they ever know the final situation of their life or not?’ So, the prime minister said, ‘Everyone knew. All of them knew. But because they were so satisfied, so contented with their present situation, the glory, the comfort made them blind about their future situation, so nobody ever thought of anything about their final days.’Oh, the king became quiet, thoughtful, pensive, and then, he is completely awakened. So, he said to his prime minister, ‘OK, in that case, I cannot waste precious time. When I am still able to do something for myself, for my future, I have to do all my best, no?’ So, the king continued talking, saying to his prime minister, ‘Because you have told me everything in truthfulness, so I can rely on you and ask you what should I do in order to save myself from that terrible fate awaiting me in the future.’So, the prime minister said to him, ‘Your Majesty, you should remember well that you came here with two empty hands. And then you will have to go with two hands empty and you can never come back. But there is one thing you could do in order to avoid that situation. Now if you want to listen to my advice, you should dispatch your trusted people, they should go to the wild island, the remote island where they are going to bring you, and tell them to build many storages with a lot of food and whatever things that you think you will need. Build also the house. Please remember that you will not find anything else except whatever you have arranged beforehand for yourself on that remote island.’Oh, the king immediately agreed to that advice and then he dispatched his trusted people to go to the remote island. Over there they built houses with interior decoration. They planted vegetables and trees, fruit trees and all that. And then after, they transformed that wild remote area into a very nice good residential place with all kinds of food and necessities, and fruit trees as well. Yes, of course.So, when it’s almost time for the king to leave his kingdom, the king said to his prime minister, ‘Oh, I am so, so, so longing, desiring for my king days to end so that I can go to the exiled area of the wild island that I have built for myself.’” Nice, hey? (Yes.) Oh, nice, nice. Remind me to tell you how I feel. (OK, Master.) Remind me when I finish. (Yes, Master.) “And then at the end, finally, one year has gone by. So, he has been kicked out of his throne, of his royal palace, stripped of all of the royal clothing and been given worn-out rags to wear and then forced onto a boat to go toward the wild, remote island. But the king was very happy. Even though he’s not on the gold throne anymore, but he was a slave as well as a king. He went there with a very contented attitude and happy, happy, happy days for him. He lived there happily ever after, all alone even.”“This story has been told by the great rabbi, Nachman in Horodenka. Horodenka is a city in Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast in western Ukraine. This story originally came from a book that has been published in Poland, Warsaw, in the beginning of the 20th century. There are many other similar stories in the Jewish and non-Jewish community.” (Yes, Master.) End of story. (Thank You, Master.) Now you know what it means, the story. It’s a parable, right? (Yes, Master.) Just like we are from Heaven. And then we came slaving into this world, 8, 10, 12 hours a day just for a few bunches of dollars. (Yes.) Then, we are not even preparing for the day when we should leave this world. (Yes, Master.) So, this is the story that reminds us that there is not just this world that exists. We will leave it. No matter how rich we are, we will leave. Because we’ve been toiling all our lifetime just to earn our comfort living or richness, but then, we will have to leave it with nothing, and alone. (Yes, Master.) And don’t even know what fate awaits us.So, this story is so simple, but I thought it’s OK. I just happened to open and it’s right in front of my eyes, so, I read it. Because if I keep looking again, just like the other book, could not find things, I forgot already what is what. Like that.So, the practitioners of Quan Yin method, they’re prepared for their future. More lucky than the king, they could even see where they will be. Well, some of them, not all of our (Association) group members can see where they will live beforehand. But some can. Alright? (Yes, Master.)So, how do we prepare for the day we leave our luxury or comfort life? We have to prepare. Like virtue, moral, practicing the connection with Heavens, then, we will go there, and we will have everything. Actually, it’s not for the highest Kingdom, not for the highest Heaven, but still, you need to prepare. (Yes, Master.)

In today’s news, China donates neonatal medical equipment to Pakistani hospital, study concludes climate crisis is driving forest fires in Australia, engineers in United States create salt grain-size camera, company from Switzerland develops system to neutralize nuclear waste in environment, hundreds of prisoners pardoned by President of the United Arab Emirates for national holiday, American company creates dairy-free cheese from vegan whey protein, and majority of British residents want a complete end to all animal-people testing.China provides neonatal equipment for hospital in Pakistan.The government of China has generously supported the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) by donating crucial devices for mothers and children to the Polyclinic Hospital in Islamabad, one of the largest government hospitals in Pakistan. The contribution of 23 pieces of new equipment, including infant incubators and ultrasound machines, will help to provide neonatal intensive care services to approximately 1,000 Pakistani and refugee mothers and newborn babies a day. The government of China has been supporting the UNHCR’s efforts to assist refugees and host communities in countries in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. China is a Shining World Leadership Award for Wise Governance recipient and a laureate of six Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion and Shining World Leadership Awards for Protection, Environmental Protection, Wildlife-Protection, and Compassionate Protection. Our appreciation, China and UNHCR, for your care of mothers and infants in Pakistan. May Heaven smile upon your benevolent deeds. Research finds climate change increasing forest fires in Australia. A study published by Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology concludes that global warming has caused a significant increase in forest burned area and frequency of mega-fires. Compared to the period from 1988 to 2001, the average annual forest burned area in the country has increased 800% between 2002 to 2019. Furthermore, 9 out of the 11 fire years that burned an area of over 500,000-square kilometers have occurred since 2000. Alarmingly, the research highlights that the fire season has extended into the cool months of autumn and winter while the nation’s average temperature has increased by 1.4 degrees Celsius since 1910 with a rapid rise in extreme heat events. Many thanks, CSIRO and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology for this eye-opening information. May all nations urgently implement a universal vegan mandate to cool down our planet, in God’s awakening Light. No 2 vegan: cuz there’s a hell existing, built just 4 u. Up next, engineers in United States create salt grain-size camera. We’d like to thank the vegan sous chefs, who work with head chefs in restaurants to manage kitchen staff and equipment and make sure the food that is served to customers is of a high standard. Please stay for more outstanding news on Supreme Master Television.Hallo, brilliant viewers, I am Mei-Lien, a vegan gardener from the Milu Deer kingdom! Taking happy and smiling steps is how I live my life since I enjoy the marvelous vegan way, and I know you delight in that too! Today, I have a tip on how to safely deseed a chili. Start by plucking off the stalk at the end of the chili. Next, using the tip of a knife, drag it down the middle to split the chili in half. Then, use a teaspoon to scrape against the chili’s contour to scoop out the seeds. You may wish to collect the seeds and store them in a small envelope if you’d like to use them for planting. These should be kept for a few months until they are dry, and once you plant the seeds, you won’t have to buy any more chilies! Thank you for watching, and much love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all of us co-inhabitants alike. Here’s the weather around the world! United States engineers create camera the size of a coarse grain of salt. Researchers from Princeton University and the University of Washington have produced a camera that measures just half a millimeter across, or about the size of a coarse grain of salt and can produce pictures of comparable quality to a camera 500,000-times larger. The new device is made on a glass-like material called a metasurface and contains 1.6 million cylindrical posts to capture the light waves and convert them to an image. Designing the posts, each of which is a unique size, was done using specially developed artificial intelligence software, and the tiny device also contains the relevant signal processing algorithms to generate the images. The camera could help to advance medical examinations and treatment by being placed on small robots that can go inside the body. Way to go, Princeton University and the University of Washington engineers, on your major advancement. In the love of the Divine, may your creation lead to the improved health of countless people. Swiss company develops technology to break down nuclear waste in environment. Exlterra of Switzerland, in collaboration with the Ukrainian state-owned enterprise SSE Ecocenter, has developed a technology called Nucleus Separation Passive System (NSPS), that can decontaminate an environment that has been exposed to radioactive material. The system was tested on a 1-hectare piece of land in Chernobyl, Ukraine, and it was found that the radiation levels decreased by 37% in the soil and 47% in the air. It is estimated that the radiation in that particular area could be fully neutralized within just 5 years, something that through a natural decomposition process would ordinarily take 24,000 years. The NSPS works by using high-velocity particles, called positrons, to break the bonds between radioactive isotopes without releasing the radioactivity into the ground or air. Great news, Exlterra and SSE Ecocenter, on your amazing innovation to neutralize nuclear waste in the environment. In nurturing Celestial light, may the NSPS technology soon be deployed in all radioactively contaminated areas as we clean the planet with care. United Arab Emirates grants pardons to inmates for national holiday. The President of the United Arab Emirates, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, recently ordered the release of 870 prisoners as a part of the 50th National Day celebrations. The incarcerated individuals were chosen based on their good conduct observed during their sentence. They will also have their debts cleared to help them restart their lives and care for their families. Each year, the leaders of the nation free thousands of prisoners to show compassion during the country’s festivals and holidays. The United Arab Emirates is a recipient of the Shining World Leadership Award for Good Governance, and a laureate of Shining World Leadership Awards for Peace, Environment Protection, Protection, and Compassion. Such a merciful deed, Your Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to grant forgiveness and a new life to your humble citizens. In the Grace of Allah, may your actions help to inspire forgiveness in the hearts of all people, as we look to the future together in harmony. Vegan: Heavens welcome u with open arms. Coming up, American company creates dairy-free cheese from vegan whey protein. We will pause for a moment to express our gratitude to the Universe for keeping our life simple so we have more time to practice spiritually. We’ll return with more responsible news on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Supporting News for a Compassionate World. US-based multinational food company releases innovative plant-based cheese. Food giant General Mills recently unveiled a plain flavored plant-based cream cheese made from vegan whey protein. It was launched through the company’s Bold Cultr brand in the United States, in partnership with Perfect Day, the firm that developed the vegan whey protein via fermentation with bacteria. The vegan cheese is then cultured using traditional cheesemaking methods. Perfect Day co-founder and CEO Ryan Pandya shared, “We’re a part of a new generation of leaders coming of age, armed with the world’s best science, systemic thinking, and compassion.” Wonderful news, General Mills, Bold Cultr, and Perfect Day, for your replication of dairy proteins that protect animal-persons. In the ever-benevolent guidance of the Providence, may our cow-people friends soon be free from their lives of captivity and slavery as we shift our diets to compassionate alternatives. Two-thirds of British citizens want government to end animal-people testing. A recent poll carried out by YouGov for nonprofit Cruelty Free International has revealed that 65% of British citizens want a binding plan enacted to cease animal-people testing, and 66% want a set date for its complete cessation. A petition signed by over 85,000 people calls for an end to animal-people experiments, and a debate on the subject was held in the UK Parliament, with much support for ending the cruel practice. Thank you, Cruelty Free International, for helping to highlight the British people’s wish to protect the lives of our dear animal-person friends. In the loving wisdom of Heaven, may we move into a humane era in which we treat our fellow Earthlings with love and respect. Caught in the daily grind? Laugh your way to a little freedom with our joke of the day entitled, “Out of Clothes.” Caroline shows up in the office in a big white wedding dress. Her manager asks: “Why have you worn a wedding dress to the office, Caroline?” “Well you know, I was out of clean clothes and I really didn’t feel like doing laundry. This was all I had left.”?! And now we have a heartline from Omniriac in Peru: Beloved Master and Supreme Master TV team, I had a lucid dream in which I saw different people eating meat, and it was there that I felt it was Master inside who pushed me to speak firmly to them, and I said to those people, “Master says that only by being vegan and compassionate will this pandemic end.” They just listened and ignored me. At that moment, when they ignored me, a very strong spiral wind enveloped the whole place. It was almost impossible for people to stay on the ground without having to hold on to something. It was as if we had suddenly been transported to the near future and then, again, my inner Master pushed me to speak, and I told them, “Master said before, be vegan and compassionate.

Multi-part Series on Ancient Predictions about our Planet: Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 176 - Islamic Prophecies about the Messiah at the Hour
Multi-part Series on Ancient Predictions about our Planet: Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 176 - Islamic Prophecies about the Messiah at the Hour
“Just before the Hour, there will be days in which knowledge will disappear and ignorance will spread, and there will be Al-Harj in abundance, and Al-Harj means killing.”Today we are honored to accompany you into the fascinating world of Islam, which means the religion of peace. In this present day, we share our planetary home with more than 1.9 billion Muslims, who strive to follow the noble and compassionate example of the Beloved Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him. From dawn to night, the Islamic prayer known as Salah resonates across the Muslim communities five times daily, reminding the faithful of the Most Merciful Allah.In the Islamic faith, the coming of the world’s Savior is a certainty and the end of the world as we know it, is inevitable. But with bountiful Mercy, Allah had revealed to the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, Peace be Upon Him, the important signs of the end times, known as the “Hour” in Islam. As warning messages, the signs are meant to wake the world up about the final Day of Judgment and to urge humankind to obey Allah’s commands, to do only righteous deeds, and to take the last chance to enter Heavenly Paradise.These signs of the Hour were recorded many times by different witnesses in the Hadith, which are direct accounts of the words and actions of Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him. For example, in the Hadith narrated by 'Abdullah ibn Masud and Abu Musa, the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, said: “Just before the Hour, there will be days in which knowledge will disappear and ignorance will spread, and there will be Al-Harj in abundance, and Al-Harj means killing.” Here, it is revealed that in the end times, Al-Harj, or killing, would become commonplace. Also, there would be a lack of spiritual knowledge, including the knowledge of the consequences of killing. The Beloved Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, was Himself a vegetarian, and taught His disciples and followers nonviolence towards all beings. As Supreme Master Ching Hai reminded us: “Actually, ‘Islam’ means peace. Means the religion of peace. But some people do not follow the example of the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, and do not follow His teaching. I remember some quote in the Quran. It says like, ‘Even if you extend your hands to kill me, I will never extend my hands to kill you.’ That’s in the Quran. And something, it said like, ‘You should forgive others.’ Like, ‘You should forgive so that Allah will forgive you.’ More or less like that.But the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, never says, ‘Go and kill the non-believers, then you go to Heaven.’ So whoever does that is not a Muslim! You don’t recognize such people as Muslim. They are the harmer of the Muslims.So please, protect the Muslims in your community, from harassment, from misunderstanding. Because they’re real believers of the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him. If they’re doing things good, they pray five times a day, they do good things. And tell them please be vegan. Because the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, said that, too. He said to his cousin, ‘Oh, Ali, don’t eat that.’ He means don’t eat meat. ‘Because that quality will come within you.’ The bad quality.”Today, we easily find such ignorance and violence throughout our world. Trillions of people from the animal kingdom are butchered every year, just for humans’ insatiable appetites.“We have produced a lot, a lot, and a lot of negative energy by killing billions and billions of innocent sentient lives, and killing millions of our fellow humans even, over millennia, directly or indirectly. Directly is through war, indirectly is through diseases that we made ourselves, like with the bubonic plague, pneumonic plague, and now, swine flu, bird flu, etc. In the court, murderers cannot escape penalty, how could we escape our own conscience and the collective murderous energy that is emitted and hangs in the atmosphere until it is forced to manifest again – as wars, as disease, as the unstable climate and its disastrous consequence?”“You see that we are really at the 11th hour. (Yes, Master.) Disasters everywhere. Pandemics one after another. (Yes, Master.) No matter how long they will chase after the cure, there’ll be other ones coming, other viruses. (Yes, Master.) Because the virus can even evade the vaccine nowadays already. And they develop another vaccine after another vaccine. Because in the beginning, God just warned us, you see?So, God gave us an alarm, and saw if we would change. We should change. We should turn around, go to the other direction. (Yes.) Like, be vegan, go green. Be benevolent, be good. Be the good stewards of the Earth. Be the real children of God. But no, nobody turned around. You see that? (Yes, Master.) I kept warning at that time in several urgent talks. But they listen, they don’t listen.So now, you see, so often we have so many pandemics and epidemics, or whatever diseases keep coming ever since. We can’t even remember anymore. Because we are killing too much, killing animal-people, killing humans, killing babies. How can all this bad karma be erased without payment? (Yes, Master.) (It’s true.)”Etc...In addition to the brutal massacring of animal-people, humans are also exterminating their own kind, such as through the estimated 73 million induced abortions committed every year. “Ibn Mas`ud added: I heard Allah’s Messenger saying; [they] will be from among the most wicked people who will be living at the time when the Hour will be established.”“Imagine the baby is just ready to go say “hallo” to the world and they just snuff them dead inside. (Oh no. It’s terrible.) Make it stillborn, or born outside and then kill them. (Oh gosh.) Imagine that? Babies. (Terrible.) That is murder. (Yes, Master.) That is the greatest atrocity that you can commit. That’s very unconstitutional to kill your own citizens ‒ for no reason! (Yes.) For no reason.And they even want to spend a lot, a lot, a lot of money to pay for that, tax people money to pay for the abortions and even to pay for that abroad as well. (Yes, Master.) Oh, this is terrible.Morally speaking, constitutionally speaking, lawfully speaking, it’s all corrupt, it’s all bad, it’s all wrong. (Yes. Exactly.) It’s all against God as well, spiritually. (Yes, Master.)This guy (Biden) is evil, and his administration, the closer ones, for example Harris and Pelosi, they are the same. All the same. And whoever supports the abortion law, they are all evil. They’re all devils inside. They’re all possessed by devils, (Wow.) if they are not devils themselves.”“Allah’s Messenger, Peace Be Upon Him, said, ‘From among the portents of the Hour are: (Religious) ignorance will prevail. …’” “(Media Report from Reuters - Oct. 29, 2021: Some of Biden’s critics in the American church say he should be banned from the act of Communion, an important ritual in the Catholic faith. Pope Francis has said the American clergy shouldn’t treat Communion as a political tool.)”“(Media Report from Fox News - Nov. 22, 2016: Pope Francis grants from now on that priests can absolve any woman who confesses to having an abortion.)”“(Media Report from EWTN News - Feb. 28, 2020: The poll found 72% of Catholics surveyed, believe certain acts are intrinsically evil, but less than half would say abortion, euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide would fit that definition.)”“We can see that most of the so-called priests and high priests, and the top-most of the religious leaders, they’re all ignorant. (Yes.) They have nothing of the so-called religious knowledge at all. Zero, below zero, and even lowlife, leading life like devils on Earth. You see that? (Yes, Master.) Or supporting all that or condoning that or keeping silent regardless of the suffering of the followers.” “(Interview by 60 Minutes Australia – 2015: These are people who should actually be facing criminal charges now. Not just sanctions at the hands of the pope or the church, or the attention of the media. These are people who have allegedly allowed the abuse of children to continue, sometimes for many years. And that is an unforgivable crime.)”“So all these religious ignorant people should just disappear, go away hiding somewhere, and leave people alone. They know nothing. Not only know nothing, but do the opposite of what the religious top leaders should do. (Yes, Master.) (That’s right.) And therefore mislead people and make a bad, bad, evil example for their followers. (Yes, Master.)”In the following Hadith, a Bedouin asked Allah’s Apostle, which is another title for the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, when would the Hour arrive. The following was His answer:“Allah’s Apostle said, ‘When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour.’ It was asked, ‘How will honesty be lost, O Allah’s Apostle?’ He said, ‘When authority is given to those who do not deserve it, then wait for the Hour.’” “So now you can see, truly, honesty is lost. Like fraud in elections. (Yes.) It’s already the big dishonesty. The Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, said, ‘When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour.’ Just even one quality lost, only honesty lost, then wait for the Hour. Meaning it’s coming. (Yes.) Doomsday is coming. (Yes, Master.) So, the follower asked Him again, ‘How will that be lost?’ The Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, said, ‘When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour.’ Because that’s how honesty will be lost. It’s true, isn’t it? (Yes, Master.)Being a pope, being a priest and they do exactly against common moral standard, not to talk about being a priest, a holy person. (Yes, Master.) Ordinary people don’t go and rape children. No? (No, Master.) No! I mean, some here and there, but not like that. (Yes.) And they’re ordinary people only. They work hard, they earn their labor’s payment. They don’t cheat.These big shots sitting in the church, they’re all cheaters. All robbers, because they’re not worthy of their upkeep. They’re not worthy of their food. They just cheat, and they do all the bad things and still get paid. And get paid very lavishly. Living in the luxury anywhere they go. And being pampered and protected from their crimes even. My God. If this is not hell, then what? (Yes.) If they are not devils, then what? Tell me. (Yes. Obvious.) Yeah, it’s obvious. Obvious that these are devils. (Yes, Master.)”“I asked Heavens how much percentage of humans is worthy of Heaven places after they die. They told me only 10%. (Oh! Wow.) (That’s so low.) Imagine. And so, the rest, whom are we living with now? (Yes, Master.) That’s why everywhere is killing, cheating, molesting, all on the top. (Oh, yes.) Starting all from the top. You see? (Yes, Master.) From the pope down to the other priests and even cardinals and all that. (Yes.) And then from the top government, from the president downward, all cheating, just to sit there. All cheating just to get power, in different ways. Cheating this way or that way. (Yes.) Or cheating in the election and all that. (Yes, Master.) So, it is not really a good world at all. (No, Master.) It’s truly terrifying when you know all about it. (Yes, Master.)”

Sunderlal Bahuguna led a life of austerity, partly to lead by example. He kept a vegetarian diet in respect to the people of the animal kingdom, wore only simple clothes, and walked 5,000 kilometers (3,100 miles) from village to village across the country when it was time to spread the message of forest conservation. In devotion to God, Sunderlal Bahuguna dedicated every action to protecting the natural environment. He believed that science had to be guided by spirituality rather than by politics, as thoughts directed from the heart cannot cause harm to others. "You know, I see it, that the Almighty is everywhere and especially in nature. You might have heard of the Chipko movement; that was the movement which was to save the trees. And I felt that what right do we have to kill these trees? Because these trees are also the creation of the Almighty, and these are also the living beings like us. The only difference is that these trees cannot speak, these trees cannot move, but they do greater service to society than the human beings. Had there not been trees, we would not have survived because trees are just like Lord Shiva Shankar Bhagwan." In closing, let us hear some wise advice from Sunderlal Bahuguna: "You know that power comes from the Almighty. When you surrender yourself to Him, He will show you the way. And three things I believe. The first, you should have devotion. Devotion to what, to whom? Devotion to the Almighty, devotion to the people. Does Almighty take a form for you? What form does the Almighty cover? I see Him everywhere. I see Him in you, yourself, also. I see Him in trees. I see Him in rivers, mountains, everywhere. He is everywhere, omnipotent. And omnipresent. Omnipresent. So, the first thing is that we should have devotion. The second thing is dedication – dedication for a cause. If you realize that Almighty is everywhere and He is being hurt, then we should dedicate ourselves for a service. And the third thing is determination."

Classic French Pastry, Part 2 of 2 –Vegan Croissant Sandwich with Vegan Poached Egg & Vegan Croissant Filled with Custard Cream Topped with Almond Puree
Classic French Pastry, Part 2 of 2 –Vegan Croissant Sandwich with Vegan Poached Egg & Vegan Croissant Filled with Custard Cream Topped with Almond Puree
Let’s begin with our first recipe, “Vegan Croissant Sandwich with Vegan Poached Egg.” We use two soymilk-derived ingredients for our vegan poached egg, tofu puree and dried tofu skin, you may find them in your nearby Asian market. Now, let’s assemble the vegan poached egg. First, place one sheet of the dried tofu skin on the cutting board; this is enough to make two eggs. Scoop two balls of the vegan egg white and place them on the top half of the tofu skin, keeping them evenly spaced. Add small amounts of vegan yolk in the middle of the vegan egg white. Center-fold the dried tofu skin and then gently press to flatten them and cut the tofu skin to separate them. Continue to flatten each of them evenly into a round shape. Now we are ready to make our croissant sandwich. Slice the plain croissant in half. In sequential order, lay the fresh lettuce leaf and then the fresh tomato slices on the cut croissant. Drizzle the top with ketchup. Then add a slice of vegan cheese and drizzle with the salad dressing. Continue with the pan-fried vegan bacon and drizzle with mustard sauce. Top with the pan-fried vegan poached egg. Finally, cover with the top half of the croissant. Our vegan croissant sandwich is now ready. Let’s continue with our second recipe for today and start with the vegan egg wash, which we will use for making both the almond puree and the vegan custard cream. Now we will start to make the almond puree topping. Here we have the almond powder in the bowl, add icing sugar, and mix well. Then add fresh vegan cream and vegan egg wash into the bowl, and mix till the mixture turns into a smooth puree. Transfer the almond puree into a piping bag. Next, we will make the vegan custard cream filling. Now it’s time to fill our croissants with the vegan custard cream and decorate it with the almond puree. Carefully slice the plain croissant in half, but do not cut it completely. Pipe the custard filling onto one side of the sliced croissant. Pipe the almond puree onto the outer crust of thessss croissant and top it with raw almond slices. Preheat the oven by setting the temperature at 250°C. Place the filled and decorated croissants on a baking tray and bake for five minutes till the almond puree and almond slice topping turn slightly golden brown. Our mouthwatering croissants filled with vegan custard cream, decorated with almond puree and almond slices are ready. They look good, smell good, and taste great!

“The prime minister told him, ‘Your Majesty. I also don’t think there is any trouble if I should tell you all the truth. Because the god that takes care of this land has always prayed very hard to ask God to grant us, every year, one new king. So God has listened to our prayer. Thus, every year, every twelve months, Hes has sent us one like you.’” So, finally I thought I have to read the Jewish book. (Yes, Master.) Now this story is called, “One-Year King.” “Long time ago, long, long, long, long time ago, there was a person who was very rich and very generous.” Ah, one moment. I forgot my eyeglasses, magic eyeglasses. Wow. Aren’t we lucky nowadays that we have eyeglasses to read? (Yes, Master.) In the ancient times, in my age, maybe I could read no more. My grandma, when she was my age, I always had to read stories for her, books for her that she liked. She could not read. She didn’t have the glasses. “A long, long time ago, there was a person who was very rich and very generous. He had a slave who was very, very loyal to him. And in return, this rich man was also very, very loving and kind to him. So kind, so loving to him to the extent that he was thinking, calculating that, ‘Why don’t I make him a different slave than any other slave, so that his life will never be in need anymore from today. No more hardship anymore from today.’ Ah, he thought and then he did. He returned freedom to him and then he also gave him many goods to sell in the other country. And then he even rented a big ship for him, so that he can go to the foreign land to sell all this merchandise that he has gifted to him.” Wow. (Wow.) What a nice owner. (Yes.) Nice owner. The best is that we don’t have slaves anymore. But at least this guy is very nice. (Yes, Master.) “And then he even said, ‘Best wishes to you, all peace and good and love. And God will be with you.’” Wow. Good wish. (Yes. Yes, Master.) “And then the slave bowed and prostrated in front of his old owner and then went on to the ship to go away. While he was still on the ship, on the ocean, suddenly from the north, a big wind built up into a storm, and then it blew the ship off course and then into the shore, where there’re a lot of sharp stones. And then of course, the ship became broken into a thousand pieces. (Oh.) All the sailors, all dead. (Oh!) Drowned and died. Only him, the slave, was still alive. By the grace of God, he grabbed onto a piece of wood and then this wood has been… how do you say, the waves…” Oh my God, how can I even forget English now. “The waves pushed that piece of wood onto a wild island. All the goods, all the merchandise, drowned together with all the other people into the depths of the sea. (Oh.) And then he alone just laid there all by himself on top of the sand shore, many days, many nights until his bruised and almost broken body slowly regained consciousness. After he became strong again, he saw himself in a dire, hopeless situation. Trying hard to survive, he began walking. And then suddenly he saw a path, a worn path,” meaning somebody has been walking on it. “So, he was so happy, happy. He saw some human footprints.” Wow, wouldn’t you be happy? (Yes, Master. Definitely.) In such a desperate situation, he even saw human footprints. “So, he followed these footprints one day and one night, and then suddenly he saw a citadel a little far away. When he almost got there, he was very surprised to see all the people from that city run, run, run, run out to welcome him. (Wow.) And all the leaders, I mean, all the governors and mayors of all the cities kept calling everybody to come. ‘Hear you, hear you! Look here, look here! Please look! Our king has arrived. God has sent us a king!’ (Wow.) So, everybody was so happy, happy and knelt down and clapped hands in the air, or whatever, saying ‘Long live the king! Long live the king! Long live the king!’” Wow. (Wow.) “And then this slave was carried all the way to a very, very glorious palace.” Have you read this story? (No, Master.) Because you don’t sound surprised to me. Even I’m surprised, even though I read it already. I forgot, and now I’m surprised. Truly, I don’t remember anything. I read it before. I mean two years ago when the pandemic began or something. When I first began the retreat, I had some time to read because I had nothing else. No television, nothing at that time. In retreat, I am not supposed to watch TV or anything. Even at that time, I didn’t even have the news, nothing. So, I read the books. I prepared. I thought one day I will come out and read to everyone. And then I forgot already what it is like. Surprise! “And then, they cleaned him up, and then put the shining purple clothes on him. Dressed him with purple clothes, royal robe and then put a crown on top of his head, and then put him on a gold throne. He was perplexed as he sat down. He just sat down and was still perplexed. He saw many of the mayors of the cities, and the chief of those tribes, and many other people who all came to him one by one, and swore loyalty to him, (Oh.) just like servants are loyal to their owner. (Wow.) Seeing all this glorious honor for him, the new king, used his hand to rub his eyes to see whether or not he’s looking correctly. And then he was thinking to himself, ‘I think I am sleeping. I think I’m dreaming. It’s only a dream, it’s only a dream.’ But day after day, he’s still the king of that land, and many rituals and many courtesies and all kinds of arrangements for kings, still continue. (Oh.) So he knew that he is the king, really. But he’s still questioning himself, ‘But, what have I done that I would merit this kind of position? Ah this must be some kind of trial, testing.’ That’s what he was thinking. But the king, well he’s the king, he called his prime minister to come and asked him, ‘Would you please tell me what is it about me that you and many leaders, and all your citizens here make me a king? And then how long will I be able to reign this way?’” “The prime minister told him, ‘Your Majesty. I also don’t think there is any trouble if I should tell you all the truth. Because the god that takes care of this land has always prayed very hard to ask God to grant us, every year, one new king. So God has listened to our prayer. Thus, every year, every twelve months, Hes has sent us one like you. Whenever that person arrives, all of us, from officials to the normal citizens, we will run out and welcome him as you have witnessed. And then this person would be treated with all kinds of royalty, and then make him king.’” That’s simple. “’But this king will be able to reign only one year. After one year, he will be driven out of the royal palace. (Wow. Oh.) All his royal clothes will be stripped from him. And then, he will be given rags to wear (Oh.) and then given to the army. (Oh.) And then the soldiers will bring him to the shore of the sea, put him on a boat and take him to a wild island (Wow.) to be exiled there. And then, it continues like that.’”

A study by the Road Ecology Center (REC) at the University of California, Davis, United States, estimates that from 2016 to 2020, the financial cost of vehicle collisions with wildlife-people on California highways was as high as US$2 billion. During the five-year period, more than 44,000 traffic incidents were recorded, with victims including people from the kingdoms of bighorn sheep, bird, black bear, lizard, mountain lion, mule deer, Pacific newt and squirrel. Wild animal-persons have been pushed to migrate and enter the roadways due to habitat loss and drought. The study calls for legislative support to fence-off hazardous hot spots and build more wildlife-people crossings. Our tearful prayers for all animal-people victims. May your souls rest in peace. Many thanks, Road Ecology Center, for your caring work. May every government take steps to protect the habitats of people from the animal kingdom, in God’s boundless Care. Vegan: ah! Smashing.

Sturgeon-person saved by two volunteers in Canada. During recent flooding in the province of British Columbia, a helicopter crew spotted a stranded sturgeon-person in a side channel of the Fraser River in Herrling Island. They promptly sent a video recording to a ground rescue team. The two-man team carried the approximately 100-kilogram, two-meter-long sturgeon-person in a specially designed “cradle” for two kilometers, including through deep water, to complete the heroic save and return the lovely fellow to the Fraser River. Sturgeon people can have a life span of up to 150 years and are considered critically endangered. Our deep appreciation, rescuers, for your valuable life-saving actions. May we treasure the lives of all fish-people, in God’s eternal Love. Tickle your funny bone with this joke of the day entitled “What Was It?” Carter is crossing the border on a bicycle. On his shoulders, he carries two large bags. The customs officer stops him and asks: “What’s inside your bag?” “Flour.” “Let me see.” The officer takes the bags, empties them out and finds nothing in them but flour. So, he lets Carter go. This happens every day for one year, after which Carter stops showing up. Sometime later, the customs officer sees him having coffee in a vegan restaurant. “Hey, my friend, I know you were smuggling something. It’s all I think about. I can’t sleep. Just between you and me, what did you smuggle?” “Bicycles!” ?! And now we have a heartline from Er-Yin in Toronto, Canada: When I prayed for World Vegan today, I thought of Beloved Master, who is not only protecting innocent animal-people, but also does all She can to save humans from the painful karmic prison of eating, murdering and abusing animal-people. I was touched to tears by Master’s immense and non-discriminatory Love. I’m thinking of doing something for the world, and I’d like to share two stories hoping that they could help humans better understand people from the animal kingdom. Every spring, a goose-couple come to nest and incubate by the wall of my workplace. The goose-father is on guard day and night to protect the goose-mother and ward off every nearby pedestrian. I always ask permission from the goose- father before visiting the goose-mother. “Don’t worry, I just want to see if she’s doing alright.” The goose-father understands my words and allows me to get close. The goose-mother becomes thinner day by day. She doesn’t eat, drink, or move. Only the feathers she sheds to keep her coming babies warm get thicker. One morning, I saw something soft and yellow moving under her wings. “Goose-babies!” The goose-mother looked at me and raised her wings, and the babies immediately stuck their heads out. The goose-mother also allowed me to take photos of her babies. Almost all of the photos ended up blurry, as I was so overwhelmed by the kind trust of the goose-mother that my hands shook. On another occasion, my husband and I took a walk along a nearby pond after grocery shopping. From a distance, we saw two swan-people and a few duck-people on the pond. The early spring evening was gloomy and chilly. “I wonder if they are hungry.” “There is bread in the car,” my husband replied, “but it’s too muddy. Next time?” Just as we were leaving, a swan-person flew across the pond and landed in front of us, flapping his big wings. We were surprised, but immediately understood that he wanted us to bring him the bread. To assure him, I stayed with him, and my husband went to get the food. Seeing that we understood his request, he waited quietly by my feet, combing his feathers. He was so far away, yet knew exactly what we were talking about! I was so amazed and totally admired the highly sensitive and spiritual quality of the animal-people. Sometimes while driving on the highway, I’d see large trucks crammed with animal-people heading to slaughterhouses. The animal-people were looking out through the small holes. The sadness in their eyes was the same as when humans suffer. Busy people, please stop for a moment to listen to your heart. Think about that piece of meat on your plate, in which you can no longer see a trace of life. It was once a living person like us, with blood and flesh. May humans no longer be ignorant. May all suffering stop. May the world be vegan now. Er-Yin from Toronto, Canada Kindhearted Er-Yin, We are deeply touched by your stories about your encounters with wondrous animal-people. Indeed, people from the animal kingdom are profoundly aware divine beings who deserve our utmost respect and appreciation. We hope what you have shared awakens all who hear it to the sentience of animal-people, and helps put an end to the horrific suffering they face in this world due to human indifference and ignorance. May the Providence forever watch over you and majestic Canada, Supreme Master TV team P.S. Master has a loving message for you: “High-minded Er-Yin, your kind heart and love for the animal-people allows you to see them as they are. When we see the Divine in all life and love life, this gives us the correct view of the way things really are. These beings are just like us. They have children they love and a Divine purpose to fulfill. They care for each other and humans as well. These precious ones love to interact with humans who appreciate and honor them. When a human disrespects the animal-people, it blocks the person’s awareness and heart from experiencing the love in the world around them. People from the animal kingdom, just like humans, respond to love and trust with reciprocity. The blessed experiences you’ve related will help others to better understand them. Thank you so much for sharing. Wishing you and your wonderful Canadian co-citizens God’s eternal Grace.” “[…] A meat eater’s every action will terrify all beings due to their bodily scent of meat.” ~ Mahaparinirvana Sutra (Buddhism)We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal-people clips. Please send them via SupremeMasterTV.com/heartlineIt has been a pleasure to spend time with you on Noteworthy News. May Celestial music comfort your heart and elevate your spirit.

In the previous episode, we have seen the spiritual wisdom about being veg in Christianity, Islam, and Jainism. Today, let us continue exploring some more. Buddhism, for example, has long been known as a religion that emphasizes the importance of being vegan. Let’s hear what the Venerable Buddhist Master Sing Chang says about the vegan diet: “What’s the reason of not killing? Human beings went to hell due to doing bad deeds.” “When one goes to hell, as witnessed by spiritual practitioners, all the punishments, including oil cauldrons, tongue-ripping and copper pillars, are facts. The punishments of hell are also mentioned in the Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Sutra, hence all are facts, not imagination.” It is with great delight that we choose a few clips from the film “Animals and the Buddha.” The enlightening film was co-produced by Bob Isaacson, who is also President and Co-Founder of Dharma Voices for Animals (DVA). “In the early tradition of Theravāda, the first precept was translated to me: I undertake the rule of training to refrain from causing injury to living things. That’s all living things; that’s how it was taught to me. And that’s how I teach people: all living things. So, we refrain from harming them. That’s the same in the Tibetan tradition. Do not do anything that hampers the growth, movement and flow of the Buddha-mind, Buddha-nature, Dharmakaya. So obviously, the eating of animals and the interfering with the animal kingdom, exploiting it, does affect that precept, does block that flow, does get in the way of the flow of Buddha mind, of the Dharmakaya. So the first precept, not to cause any injury to any living things, means ANY living thing!” Dear enlightened viewers, let us conclude with the URGENT message from our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai to all religious and spiritual leaders: “It’s time now to awaken and change these physically and spiritually unwholesome, unhealthy, cruel habits, and the utmost atrocity involved. 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.” “This also adheres to ‘Thou shall not kill,’ or ‘Ahimsa,’ means no violence, whereas eating animal-people goes against this commandment from God.”

Directed and written by Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, based on the real-life 2011 memoir of Abby Johnson, “Unplanned” shows us how cruel and damaging abortion is, not only to the unborn babies but also to the women, the mothers.Now, let’s listen to an excerpt from Abby Johnson’s speech given at the 2020 Republican National Convention. “My name is Abby Johnson, and I spent eight years working for Planned Parenthood. But today, I’m a pro-life activist. I truly believed I was helping women, but things drastically changed in 2009. But the tipping point came a month later, when a physician asked me to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion. Nothing prepared me for what I saw on the screen: an unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction. And I’ll never forget what the doctor said next, ‘Beam me up, Scotty.’ The last thing I saw was a spine twirling around in the mother’s womb before succumbing to the force of the suction.I’ve been the perpetrator to these babies, to these women. And I now support President Trump because he has done more for the unborn than any other president. During his first month in office, he banned federal funds for global health groups that promote abortion. That same year, he overturned an Obama-Biden rule that allowed government subsidy of abortion. He appointed a record number of pro-life judges, including two Supreme Court justices. And importantly, he announced a new rule protecting the rights of health care workers objecting to abortion – many of whom I work with every day.”Recently, Supreme Master Ching Hai addressed related questions about Texas passing a law banning abortion. “Any killing of innocents, especially babies in the womb, even it’s yours but it’s God-given. So any killing like that would bring disaster to our world, to everybody. Most people have abortions because they don’t have other people to give them wise counsel, to support them. They were lonely and vulnerable. So in the society, in any country, we should make like a volunteer group or something for this case, so that people who get unwanted pregnancies can come to them or talk to them, even over the phone, about their problem, and get right, wise counsel. In this case, many lives will be saved, and also many guilts and consciences will be at peace.”

Tea is beyond just a pleasant beverage. Studies have proven that drinking tea as part of our lifestyle is beneficial to our overall wellness. Tea originated in China and has been enjoyed by the Chinese people for thousands of years. All true teas are derived from a plant species called Camellia sinensis, which is an evergreen shrub and belongs to the flowering tea plant family called Theaceae. Tea is classified into five main categories, including White, Green, Oolong, Black and Pu-erh, depending on the processing methods. Tea’s health-promoting properties have been proven in many studies. The main substance that makes drinking tea healthy is polyphenols, which are a large group of naturally occurring compounds. They are abundant in plants and have excellent antioxidant effects. Research has found out that polyphenols in tea have the ability to regulate blood sugar by making cells more responsive to insulin’s effect, hence lowering the risk of diabetes. Instead of choosing sweetened beverages, drinking a cup of tea is a great way to optimize blood sugar control. Flavonoids found in black tea are another group of compounds that are beneficial to promoting cardiovascular health. A meta-analysis study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found evidence that people who drank at least three cups of black tea per day had an 11% lower risk of developing heart disease. The polyphenols and antimicrobials in black and green tea can promote the growth of good bacteria and help repair the lining of the digestive tract. They help to enhance immunity. Tea can also protect the brain from aging in the long run. One study demonstrated that tea-drinkers who were aged 55-plus had better cognitive performance. When we talk about an infusion, it refers to steeping plants or fruits in hot water. These beverages of ancient wisdom have been proven beneficial to mental, emotional, and physical health. Most of them don’t contain caffeine and are suitable for people who prefer to avoid feeling jittery after drinking coffee. A cup of tea can do more than just boost immunity, the process of preparing and drinking it can also be relaxing. It’s a time reserved for a moment of tranquility, reunion, and joy.
