One-Year King, Part 5 of 9, Dec. 12, 2021

But it is not the Almighty God who does it. It is the one who borrowed God’s Power to create this world, for example. (Yes, Master.) He wants it that way. He wants people to have to struggle. And then even send the devils down to seduce them into doing wrong, then punishes them. See the outcome, what happened. Alright, my God. I’m very tired also, very tired. Even though I don’t have the pandemic myself, but very tired also, praying so hard and working so tiringly, not tirelessly like you would hope. Not tirelessly. Tired, but still continue. (Thank You, Master for all Your help.) You’re welcome. It’s not for you I did because you are well taken care of and you’re safe. You know where you are. You have the principles, you have the morals to wear on your body like an armor. Protective armor. And you have your Master. (Yes, Master.) And you have a very, very high, high quality job. (Yes, Master.) So, anyway, we are OK but, millions, billions are not. (Yes, Master.) And that’s why we’re working hard. Sometimes I’m also thinking I’m stretching myself too thin. Because many Masters, They came just for some and then They just feel happy and They leave. Or happy or not, suffering or not, They would leave, and They know They’ve done Their best. I’m never satisfied, like I’ve done my best. I know I’m doing my best, but that doesn’t mean that I’m satisfied. (Yes, Master.) I feel like it’s never enough. There’s too much suffering and I feel sometimes very frustrated. Frustrated. Like keep yelling at the deaf. (Yes, Master.) Or forcing the blind to read without the proper equipment of course. Nowadays the blind can read. (Yes, Master.) They make a special alphabet for them so that they can read with the fingers. (Yes, Master.) My situation is worse than that. All these blind people in the world, they don’t have equipment to read. They have, but they don’t even use it. (Yes, Master.) And it is a surprise that I’m still alive. (Thanks God for that.) That they didn’t even do away with me yet. So, it’s at least something. Something good. But I feel never satisfied. (Yes, Master.) I feel never satisfied. In my mission, I never feel like I have done enough or I’ve done my best. Even though you can say I have, but doesn’t give me the satisfactory feeling that that is all I wanted. (Yes, Master.) That all I wanted is done. It’s not like that. I feel so much suffering when I see an animal-person skinned alive on TV, (Yes.) or chopped mercilessly without any sympathy from anyone in those slaughterhouses or hunting people. (Yes, Master.) Oh, my heart felt just so wrenched. And I just keep saying to God, “Oh please God, stop all this. Please stop all this. The karma law doesn’t have to exist. Doesn’t have to. You don’t have to give people here free will.” But it is not the Almighty God who does it. It is the one who borrowed God’s Power to create this world, for example. (Yes, Master.) He wants it that way. He wants people to have to struggle. And then even send the devils down to seduce them into doing wrong, then punishes them. See the outcome, what happened. (Yes, Master.) Like watching theater. And I cursed him, I said, “You are wicked, you are terrible, you’re not worthy to be the creator. Just stop all this. I really have contempt for you.” I told him that. “Don’t have to have this law of karma.” (Yes, Master.) He said, “Like that, so that people can become better, improve.” I said, “Nonsense, garbage. Many beings never left Heaven. They never needed to improve, nothing. They are always good. (Yes, Master.) And nobody asked for this world. Only you make it into hell. Hell here and hell in hell, as well. All are hell.” So I said to God, I said, “Please, if I cannot do anything, why don’t You just destroy me? Because I just cannot bear anymore. Cannot bear anymore the suffering of this world.” Every time I see things like that, even just in the film, you can turn it off. But my heart just cannot bear. (Yes, Master.) Feels like shattered, and oh, so much, so much pain, so much suffering. That’s why I can never feel satisfied. (Yes, Master.) Because in every corner of our world, there is suffering going on to someone, either humans or animal-people, or even tree beings, trees and bushes, and all that. They are helpless. They’re delivered to the mercy of whoever. (Yes, Master.) This is terrible. It’s not fair. (No, Master.) Any more questions, love? Are you happy with my answers? (Yes, Master. We’re happy.) Any more questions from the team? (No more questions, Master.) No or yes? (No, Master.) No more. Right? (No more, Master.) I hear just, “More questions, Master.” (Sorry. No more.) Good. I read you a story. (Oh, wonderful, Master. Thank You, Master.) We take a little break. (Yes, Master.) Come back maybe a couple of minutes later. (Yes, Master.) I need to take a drink, a quick breath after all this. (Yes, Master.) I come back very soon. (Yes, Master.) Few minutes. (Hallo, Master!) Hallo! (Hallo, Master!) I’m calling from outside, so sometimes the line is not so easy. Listen, it’s winter, you guys are warm enough? (Yes, Master, very warm.) Coming winter already. You have everything you need? You can order anything. (Yes, Master.) Just to keep warm. Keep warm or new clothes or something. (Yes, thank You, Master.) (We are all looking good today.) Yeah, you do? (Yes, Master.) Ah wonderful! Wonderful. Because I thought you don’t have enough clothes. That’s why I keep reminding you. Anyway, you don’t need anything maybe. That’s why. You have the best job in the world. You don’t know. (Yes, Master.) (We do, we’re very lucky.) Very lucky, yes. (Thank You, Master, Thank You, God.) I also thank God that I have some dog-people’s blankets on me. They prepared blankets for the dog-people in case the dog-people come, but the dog-people are not here so I can wear them. (Oh.) Because I don’t have any myself. Actually, they don’t prepare much for me at all nowadays and I don’t ask also. I don’t ask anything. Whatever they bring. But the dog-people have many blankets. Anyway, even if it’s my blanket, it will go to dog-people. It’s always like that. (Yes.) If they’re around, because sometimes they don’t wash, they don’t bring the dog-people’s blankets back, so I use mine to put on them. (Oh.) And then after a while, they send it back. They took it away to wash, and then they don’t bring it back. Or they bring back, but it’s also dog-people’s. Same stuff. As long as it’s warm, it doesn’t matter who it belongs to. (Yes, Master.) I don’t mind wearing dog-people’s blankets. I just mind if I wear somebody else’s blankets or clothes. Dog-people don’t feel impure somehow. Like I can share with them my bed, but if I share with somebody else, I don’t think I like it. (Right, Master.) See what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.) But the dog-people, you have to clean them well of course. You have to wipe them before they go in the house. Then you can share your bed or your sofa with them. It’s all theirs anyway. If they are there, everything belongs to them, except my working desk. They like the sofa, they like my bed. They like their beds also. They have them but they like mine better. After a while I stopped telling them not to. OK, whatever it’s all yours. Even one, they don’t leave it alone. You know, they have many! For example, we have three sofas. They should have just two. But no, they want everything. So I just wipe it and then sit on it. I let them sit next to me anyway, whenever, if they are there. (Yes, Master.) Nowadays, very busy, can’t see dog-people too much. I wanted to even talk to you a few days ago. I thought I have to continue teaching you and my so-called disciples. (Yes, Master.) Even if I’m in retreat. Otherwise, who knows when we can see each other anymore, considering the pandemic, you see? (Yes, Master.) I have to continue to remind all of you about how to live a decent life. (Yes, Master. Thank You, Master.) And spiritual life, we need constant reminding. (Yes, Master.) It’s true like that. It’s like many stories I read already before, preparing to read to you, but when I look at it again, I can’t remember what it was. So, anyway, I’ll read you this story, but I don’t remember the content. I will read on and We’ll both find out what it is. (Yes, Master.) You like a joke to begin with? (Sure. Sure, Master.) There were two inmates inside a prison and talking to each other. Inmate John, said to inmate Smith. “What are you in for?” He said, “I robbed something. And then, they caught me.” So, inmate Smith asked John, “And how about you? What are you in for?” He said, “Because I’m deaf.” Deaf, cannot hear. (Oh.) So, the other inmate, Smith, was very surprised. He said, “What? My God! They are so strict nowadays. Even if you’re deaf, they put you in jail? My God!” So, John said, “No, no. Because I’m deaf, so I stole a radio when it’s still broadcasting.” He stole a radio, when it’s still on. So, of course the owner chased after the sound and got him. Imagine, he carried the radio into the garden, to the gate to get out, hey? So easy to follow the sound to catch him, no? (Yes.) We should also catch this (inner Heavenly) Sound. So, God will catch us. (Yes, Master.) We should everyday practice on the inner Heavenly Sound which is inaudible to everyone else around us. Catch that (inner Heavenly) Sound so that God will catch us, so that we can go Home. (Yes, Master.) Now this is the story… A Jewish story. I originally wanted to read you a Muslim Hadith again. But they messed it up. I asked them to categorize the stories for me. They did it all wrong; I could not find it. It’s all wrong number, wrong book. So, I have to read you a Jewish book now. It took me a lot of time to try to find it. I thought I was wrong, but I was not. I kept looking again, again, I could not. So, finally I thought I have to read the Jewish book. (Yes, Master.)

In today’s news, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai presents Shining World Compassion Award to vegan celebrity chef feeding Los Angeles, USA’s houseless, South African paper cautions of substantial reinfection risk of Omicron variant, engineer in India develops system to recharge lower aquifers, large scale greenhouse in UK uses waste heat to grow produce, Indonesian clowns comfort kids displaced by volcanic eruption, Slovenian company to introduce gourmet vegan steaks, and clever boy in United States gets award for helping shelter dog-people get adopted. In Shining World Compassion Award News from the United States … Chef Nicole Derseweh started the Martha Project in early 2020. This not-for-profit organization serves nourishing vegan meals to the houseless people of Los Angeles. The timing has been crucial in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which meant that less support was available for this community. The Martha Project volunteers prepare the meals, package them in eco-friendly material, personally distribute the food and interact with the recipients. Before the meals are delivered, the volunteers meditate together to bless the food and visualize the recipients being surrounded by love and light. Ms. Derseweh honors the recipients by referring to them as houseless instead of homeless as she acknowledges that they have a home within the community. “I just truly believe that we are all interconnected, and that we affect each other. And that this idea of separateness is really just an illusion. So, in understanding that, you realize that we’re not OK, unless we’re all OK. And that actually, it is my honor, and also responsibility to take care of the other people and beings on this planet.” Upon hearing about the loving efforts of the Martha Project, our Benevolent Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Is very pleased to present the Shining World Compassion Award to Nicole Derseweh, plus a US$10,000 humble contribution to support this caring work, with all love and gratitude to all involved, in Heaven’s blessing.” Our Association members in Los Angeles, USA, were delighted to present the Award letter, crystalline plaque, Master’s financial contribution, as well as Her publications and DVDs to Nicole. The following is an excerpt from the letter: “It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to you the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for providing delicious, home-cooked plant-based meals and ‘human connection to those without shelter.’ The mission of the Martha Project, named after your inspiring grandmother, is to use food as the means to bond and care for others, thus removing barriers and uplifting souls with kindness. Since the beginning of the pandemic, your team has also handed out facemasks and basic medical necessities to individuals living without a house. The initiative, featured on the popular American television talk show, the Rachael Ray Show, brought the host to tears and touched the heart of viewers.” Ms. Derseweh was touched by the beauty conveyed in the words of the letter and the lovely crystalline plaque. She was also touched by Master’s kind financial contribution and conveyed her thanks to Supreme Master Ching Hai. “Thank You. Thank You. It’s beautiful. (It is.) I love it. It’s so beautiful. My heart is just so overwhelmed with gratitude. I want to say thank You so much to Supreme Master and all of the people that are working to help support the organization. Thank You for being a light in this world, and I love You. Thank You.” We salute you, Nicole Derseweh, for bringing vegan meals of love to the people living on the streets of Los Angeles. May the Divine forever protect you. For the full presentation of the Shining World Compassion Award to Nicole Derseweh, please tune in to our Shining World Awards program at a later date. South African pre-print study warns of Omicron variant’s high reinfection risk. In a population-level analysis, South African public health experts have identified 35,670 reinfections among nearly 2.8 million individuals who were tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 at least 90 days prior to November 27, 2021. In contrast to the Beta and Delta strains, the Omicron variant, which has up to 32 mutations in the spike protein is “associated with substantial ability to evade immunity” from a previous infection and is 2.39 times more likely to reinfect someone than the original virus. Soberingly, Professor Anne von Gottberg of South Africa’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases cautions that Omicron is already the dominant variant in the country and that cases “will increase exponentially.” South Africa’s daily COVID-19 cases rose 800% within two weeks, from approximately 2,400 on November 25 to nearly 22,400 on December 9, 2021. Many thanks, Professor Anne von Gottberg and all scientists involved in the study. As we pray for the speedy recovery of all affected, may every nation urgently put in place Vegan Law to halt zoonotic outbreaks, in God’s Mercy. “In this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, people have faces like dogs; they eat rotting carcasses for food. They bark and speak, telling only lies; all thought of righteousness has left them.” ~ Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji (Sikhism)Up next, engineer in India develops system to recharge lower aquifers. Let us show our appreciation to the personal vegan chefs who help busy families prepare meals and customize meal plans so that all are well-nourished and there’s more time for parents to help with homework. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for more meaningful news. Hallo, adventurous viewers, I’m Gopi, a vegan homemaker from the Gopher kingdom. I wake up so happy every day, realizing that my vegan way saves innocent beings. So wonderful, isn’t it? Let’s walk in compassion together. I have a tip to share with you! Thinking of taking down your artificial Christmas tree for the season? Is it dusty? Are you wondering how to clean it before storing the tree for next year? Well, here are several solutions! You can use a vacuum— a shop or handheld one, or a canister vacuum with a hose attachment— to get rid of the dust. Be gentle with it to avoid suctioning up the needles or lights. Hold the vacuum several centimeters away from the branches to prevent damage to the tree. You can also use a little bit of mesh to cover the end of the nozzle so that only the dust and debris are captured. Alternatively, you can use a microfiber duster. A microfiber cloth will work fine as well. Begin at the top of the tree and gently wipe down each branch, making your way down to the base stand. You can also shake off the dust or disassemble the tree and gently shake each section individually. Make sure you are careful and do this slowly to avoid damaging any lights. Now you’ll have a bright and merry Christmas tree that will be ready for the next season! Thank you for your attention and love you a lot for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all of us humans and all co-inhabitants alike. Now, the worldwide weather. Indian engineer develops system to help recharge groundwater more quickly. Rahul Bakare of Pune, Maharashtra has established a company called Urdhvam Environmental Technologies that has developed a method to help replenish deep aquifers at a faster rate, thus enabling farmers to have more water. Wells that draw from deeper aquifers may run dry as it can take a long time for water to get from the upper layers of the Earth to lower ones. Urdhvam Environmental Technologies’ experts study the underground situation using a special camera. Then, the BoreCharger machine, which the company created, is inserted into the well and drills perforations in the plastic well casing at the higher levels. This allows the water to flow into the lower aquifers, which improves its yield and quality. Our gratitude, Rahul Bakare and Urdhvam Environmental Technologies, for helping increase water security for Indian farmers. In the grace of the Providence, may the global climate soon stabilize and provide sufficient rainfall in farming regions. United Kingdom company sees huge success growing produce in low carbon greenhouse. Conventional greenhouses use fossil fuel to create heat for plants to survive in the cold weather. However, in a world’s-first, food producers are utilizing waste heat from a water treatment plant to maintain warm temperatures for the crops. Created by the Low Carbon Farming group, the Norfolk greenhouse is built on 16-hectares of land. It is next to Anglian Water’s treatment plant, so the excess heat from the facility is utilized by the greenhouse to provide the optimum growing temperature, cultivating over 378,000 tomatoes, 14 million cucumbers, and 22 million peppers. The tomatoes alone supply about 5% of the total UK tomato consumption. Kudos on undertaking such an innovative project, Low Carbon Farming group. May we seek to tread lightly on our planet, and may the masses soon switch to the compassionate vegan lifestyle, in Heaven’s support. Indonesian clowns bring smiles to youngsters after volcanic eruption. A group of clowns from Aku Badut Indonesia (“I am an Indonesian Clown”) performed a show at an evacuation center in Lumajang on Indonesia’s Java island. The performance was to restore a sense of well-being to children displaced by the Mount Semeru eruption on December 4, 2021, which sadly caused at least 48 fatalities and necessitated thousands of people leaving their homes. The youngsters laughed and clapped while watching the clowns in colorful costumes. Dedy Delon, founder of the group, stated, “Our hope is that it can bring back children’s happiness… there are many kids traumatized because of this eruption, and we hope that our presence here can give support to the kids.” Thank you, Aku Badut Indonesia, for your heartwarming performances to bring joy to children at this difficult time. May life soon return to normal for all the gentle people of Java, in Allah’s tender Mercy. No 2 vegan: only the sympathizer of the weak n the meek chooses it. Coming up, Slovenian company to introduce gourmet vegan steaks. We will take a moment to enjoy the Slovácko Verbuňk, an improvised folk dance performed by boys and men in the South Moravia and Zlín districts of the Czech Republic, which is also a UNESCO-recognized Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. More happy news coming up on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Pleasant News for an Amicable World. Slovenian company to release plant-based steak. Juicy Marbles is set to roll out its first product in 2022, which is a plant-based filet mignon steak. The firm has received US$4.5 million in funding from sources including angel investors and the environmentally friendly search engine Ecosia’s investment arm called World Fund. The steaks are made from soy protein and closely resemble the mouth feel, taste and texture of the animal-person-based counterpart, including the fat marbling. Juicy Marbles will continue developing other kinds of gourmet vegan products, and is currently working on a plant-based tuna steak. Way to go, Juicy Marbles, on the upcoming release of your new gourmet vegan filet mignon. In Celestial blessings, may the consumption of our animal-people co-inhabitants soon be relinquished to history, as we awaken to a new era of kindness and compassion for all living beings. Kind boy in United States receives award for helping shelter dog-people get adopted. Eleven-year-old Evan Bisnauth of New York City was awarded the 2021 American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Kid of the Year award for his dedication to encouraging canine-people in shelters as they wait for their forever homes. Evan spends time reading stories to the dog-people residents, and his favorite is about a dog-person who lovingly gets adopted. The sweet youngster has also made extraordinary animations of the waiting dog-people to help them find new homes. Evan believes the canine shelter residents “are just looking for good people.” Commenting on receiving the award, Evan said, “It makes me feel really good ... but it also makes me want to do so much more.” Bravo, Evan, on your wonderful mission to help shelter dog-people. We pray all canine princes and princesses are adored and respected in loving homes, in God’s delight. Let’s gear up for some laughter with the joke of the day entitled “Being Kind.” An interviewer asks a job applicant about his work history… “First, tell me why you left your previous job.” “Sir, I lost my last job for being kind.” “Oh, really? What did you do?” “I gave my seat to an old lady on the bus.” “But how could giving up your seat make you lose your job?” “Well, I was the bus driver.” ?! And now we have a heartline from Nancy in the United States: Dear Supreme Master TV team, I just want to send my warm, loving gratitude to Master and the team. Thank you. Dear Master, I just want to say thank You from the bottom of my heart. The more I meditate, the more I love You. Thank You for giving me and my family a new life. You’re always in my heart. Love You.

Be Vegan – Be a True Practitioner, Part 1 of 2

Be Vegan – Be a True Practitioner, Part 1 of 2

Today, we would like to present various compassionate vegan messages from religious leaders around the world, where they share wisdom about being vegan, which is a MUST for any true practitioner. To honor the commandment “THOU SHALL NOT KILL,” many true Christian practitioners like the Reverend Pastor Robert Munro are faithfully following Lord Jesus Christ’s path. During a Sunday service in 2018, he shared valuable insights from the Bible: “‘God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every seed green herb for meat. And it was so.’ This, I would have to say, is one of the few times God spoke to humans directly. Throughout this Bible, and every scripture I’ve read, I’ve yet to see many passages where the Lord speaks to us directly. It is irrefutable; it does not say that we can eat animals at any time.” Does Islam share the same view as Christians about veganism? In the Book of Hadith, Chapter 49, Hadith No. 36 states that: “Beware of meat. It has addictiveness like the addictiveness of wine.” This verse clearly warns the faithful Islamic people about the intoxication of meat. Its addictiveness is as strong as alcohol, which is harmful to one’s life and is therefore forbidden in the Qur’an. Jainism also emphasizes the importance of compassion in spiritual practice. Sri Charukeerthi Bhattaraka Swamiji, a great Scholar of Jaina Darshana (Jain Philosophy), the pontiff of Sri Main Jainkashi Math, will explain further on this topic. “So that’s why non-violence is the supreme religion; live-and-let-live. Everyone wants to live and wants the right to live. So that’s why we can’t harm any living being, we can’t kill anything. So in the philosophy, the one who is the God, who are conquerors and omniscient, give the great message for us on how to live together in harmony and peace. In our life, we have our essential duties.”

The Mystery of Ancient Costa Rica’s Stone Spheres, Part 1 of 2

The Mystery of Ancient Costa Rica’s Stone Spheres, Part 1 of 2

Across the Diquís Delta and on Isla del Caño of Costa Rica, one may find more than 300 stone balls of various sizes. These fascinating stone spheres, or “bolas de piedra” in Spanish, are commonly attributed to the extinct Diquís culture and are also sometimes referred to as the Diquís Spheres. However, their exact purpose and construction remain largely a mystery. In 2014, they were listed on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage List as the “Precolumbian Chiefdom Settlements with Stone Spheres of the Diquís.” To learn more about these remarkable stone spheres, we are honored to introduce Dr. Francisco Corrales Ulloa, an archaeologist from the History Anthropology Department of the National Museum of Costa Rica. Dr. Corrales Ulloa tells how the stone spheres were shaped. “These spheres of stone are very, very particular artifacts that break away a bit from the logic of other artifacts. They are very clearly inspired by elements of nature in animals or in humans. This concept of the sphericity is new, or is different, and becomes a characteristic of its groups. There are various explanations that have been proposed for its meaning; however, the evidence is very limited. The stone spheres stand out in that region in several factors. One, the period in which they were made – that is more than 1,000 years ago. Another is the quantity. They were also made in different sizes.” “And the other important element that we have with the spheres is the diversity of contexts. There are spheres in other parts of the world – no, it was not exclusive. But no other society produced them in such a large number, in such contexts, and in such materials.” Some of the spheres were arranged to form lines, circles, or triangles. Researchers ask themselves why the people would go through all the effort to create such elaborate and unique stonework. There are many theories: some people believe they came from Atlantis or were created by visiting extraterrestrials. Local legends hold that the rock was softened by the powerful magic of the ancient natives. “One of the most frequent questions is: How did they make them?”

Adorable Common Spotted Cuscus-People

Adorable Common Spotted Cuscus-People

Even though our home, Papua New Guinea, makes up only one percent of the Earth’s total land area, it houses five percent of global biodiversity. The people of Papua New Guinea are very respectful of nature, which explains why most of the Papua New Guinea’s rainforests have been well preserved. My people, the common spotted cuscuses, also known by scientists as Spilocuscus Maculatus, are medium-sized animal-people living mainly in New Guinea and the Cape York Peninsula of Australia. We also have over twenty other close relatives. Rainforests, mangrove trees, and eucalyptus trees are our favorite places to build our sweet homes. We common spotted cuscus-people have a round head, a pointed nose, and small ears that are barely visible. One of our striking features is our big round eyes with slit pupils like those of the cat-people. As you may have guessed, our diet is plant-based. Our favorite foods are fresh fruits, but we are not picky eaters. As arboreal animals, we are perfectly equipped for living in trees. We common spotted cuscus-people are marsupial. That means our babies develop outside the mother’s body in a pouch. We live mostly a solitary life, only coming together when it’s time for us to find our soulmate. We are very shy and secretive, so it is very hard and rare for humans to spot us. Deforestation is happening at an alarming rate right now. It was also estimated that by 2021, 83 percent of the country’s accessible forests and 53 percent of total forests would have been destroyed or severely damaged. According to NASA, by the year 2000 half of all the world’s rainforests had been cleared, and if this rate is to continue, we will have no more rainforests by the end of the 21st century. Disturbingly, we common spotted cuscus-people are also killed for our fur and our flesh. If everyone stops consuming animal-people flesh and their by-products, there will be no reason for slaughterhouses to exist, and the forests we call home will not be cleared to grow food for the animal-people trapped in the livestock factories. The world becomes a better place every time one person makes a positive change, and you can be that person today!

One-Year King, Part 4 of 9, Dec. 12, 2021

So, it’s just the destructive time. (Right. Yes, Master.) The lenient time is already passed. (Wow.) Even the tip of the tail of it is already passed. (Wow.) So humans will not be pardoned. We work tirelessly with the Heavens, trying to save as many as we can, but finally, they will all have to answer themselves for their own actions and lifestyle. Any other questions at all? (Master, there’s an article that an archbishop, he’s a former Vatican ambassador to the U.S. He’s asking the pope to resign also, over the sex abuse scandal.) So? (Well, I was just mentioning that even some of his people are asking him to resign.) Asking whom? (Pope Francis.) Asked Francis to resign. (Yes.) Why? (Because he knew about the sexual abuse cases way before, and he still allowed them to happen.) He is not in line with Christianity. (Yes.) It’s not only that. Many other things people maybe do not know. (Yes.) Like these raunchy girls. (Yes.) And because of that, there are other things that could happen. (Yes, Master.) So who knows. Whatever. So his own people asked him to resign. I see. (Yes.) Well done, well done. But I don’t think this guy will resign ever. I’d be surprised. It will be a miracle if he resigned. (Yes, Master.) Unless many, many more people pressure him or more evidence or whatever. Otherwise, this guy, he enjoys too much his privileged life. How would he resign? (Yes, Master.) You can see big chicken-people, big turkey-people, big beef steak, and big wine, big alcohol, big car, big reception everywhere. (Yes.) So how would he resign? These types of people, they don’t know any shame and morals. They don’t know anything like that. They just jump in the priesthood because it’s an easy life. (Yes, Master.) And say a couple of things like, “Oh, we have to help the poor people.” (Yes.) But they themselves don’t help anything. They have nothing to help. (Yes, Master.) Or maybe doing some humble action outwardly, just to gain people’s respect and trust, and then more donations for him. (Yes, Master.) So this is nothing. Just a piece of… you know what. (Yes, Master.) Even the piece of whatever, it can be recycled, or be some help to some plants or trees or something. (Yes.) But this kind of entity has no shame, no remorse, no use, no help to anybody. (Yes, Master.) Only an empty shell with the devil inside, manipulating. Just all for theater. (Yes, Master.) Many people can see through it, but a lot of people cannot see it. (Yes, Master.) Only enlightened people can see, only sages, clairvoyant people can see them, such things like that. Many popes have been devils incarnate also. (Wow.) In the history of Catholicism. They are not from a real Christianity anyway, it is the Romans who took over and changed it into some system just to benefit the government, just to rule, and just to make it like religious. Just political to begin with. (Yes, Master.) They killed Jesus and then they made it into Catholicism, Roman Catholic, just to change everything to benefit themselves. So, many of the reincarnation teachings or vegetarianism teachings have been cut out of the Bible. (Oh, wow.) (Understand.) Just to suit the government at that time. And they continue that way. They drink wine, they eat big fish, big meat and everything. In The Gospel of the Nazarenes, Jesus states, “Wherefore those who want to be my disciples, keep your hands from bloodshed and let no flesh meat enter your mouths for the Lord is just and bountiful who ordains that man shall live by the fruits and the seeds of the earth alone.” - Gospel of the Nazarenes 38:1-6 And even some are not cut, like in some parts, they forgot to cut or maybe deliberately leave it, some priests deliberately leave it, saying the Lord doesn’t even want it. (Yes, Master.) He doesn’t want any sacrifice of the lamb or she-sheep or bullocks or anything, because who kills them for sacrifice, their hands are full of innocent blood. (Yes, Master.) What’s the use of all this theater anyway? Some people ask me, why if any Master came to the world, They should rescue the whole world. They don’t want to be rescued. Every period of our history or present or future, there were only some people who want to be enlightened, who want to be liberated, who want to go Home. The rest are still going round and round in the wheel of recycling. (Yes, Master.) Blindly. Deafly. Unwisely. Dumbly. Most Masters, They just know it. (Yes, Master.) They just don’t want to do anything with the world. They just save whoever wanted to be saved and then He goes back home. (Yes, Master.) There are not many Masters who want to rescue the whole world. Even one of the Chinese Masters, I forgot, what’s His name, Mo Tzu, Lieh Tzu, maybe Mo Tzu. Somebody asked Him if He would like to rescue the world. Please save the world. He said not even to exchange for one of his hairs He would do it. He wouldn’t want to. It’s not because He has no love or compassion. He just knows it’s useless, wasting time, (Yes, Master.) wasting precious time for nothing. Just like you want to change the Sun into the Moon. The Sun is hot. The Moon is cool. (Yes, Master.) Cannot, it’s the nature like that. Any other questions? (Yes, Master. Why are there so many volcanos erupting around the world at this time?) How many? (As of December 4th, there are about two dozen major live eruptions globally. So that’s quite a number.) Yeah. (Recently, on December 4th, in Indonesia, Mount Semeru erupted on Java island,) Yeah. (and 30 plus people were killed and there are missing persons.) Yeah. There will be more coming even. (Wow.) Many are threatening to spew out their anger and their destructive power. Many more, not just that. You know the answer. (Yes, Master.) We have many other things. Even everything already under control, came back. Even some things like bird flu, swine flu, whatever. You know, right? (Right. Yes, Master.) And they just continue killing these bird-people, these chicken-people or duck-people or geese-people, or whatever. But they’re killing themselves, the humans. This is the time of danger, of survival risk, but they don’t turn around, they don’t listen to wise words of ancient Masters or present Masters. So, it’s just the destructive time. (Right. Yes, Master.) The lenient time is already passed. (Wow.) Even the tip of the tail of it is already passed. (Wow.) So humans will not be pardoned. We work tirelessly with the Heavens, trying to save as many as we can, but finally, they will all have to answer themselves for their own actions and lifestyle. (Yes, Master.) And the big leaders of the church, of all kinds of religions… Good religions, I don’t mean the satanic so-called religion. The satanic is not a religion. (Yes, Master.) Because you don’t worship the killers, the murderers, the destructors. (Yes, Master.) Satan is that, is a seducer, destructive entity, unmoral, cold, war-like, killer, murderer. (Yes, Master.) And seducer of people, to make people do wrong. So how can you worship such a thing? (Yes, Master.) He has no love, nothing. So, from all the good religions’ leaders, if they don’t lead their people into true righteousness, then they will also have to go to hell with their followers. (Yes, Master.) Because of collective karma, and because of failing responsibility. Everyone born into this world has been given a responsibility and a duty. If you don’t fulfill your duty, then you are also sinful, and you also owe something, and you have to pay for it, and then recycle again and again. It depends on how big the sin is, or how big the responsibility is. So the religious leaders, they think they’re doing well, there’re good people worshiping them anyway, and nothing happens to them. They don’t know. They don’t know their souls are already chained and burned in hell. Some people, they burst spontaneously into flames, just because their time is up. And then the flame of hell even manifested on Earth. (Wow. Right.) Because the devils came and got them. See that? (Understand.) So many things in this world are very scary. Really scary to live among humans, you never know what they’ll do to you. There are some humans who are good, of course, the 10%. (Yes, Master.) The other, some of them are not so bad, but many, the big number of humans are very scary. (Yes, Master.) Because they are not well in their spiritual makeup and mental understanding. They’re not clear on anything. They’re easily influenced by the devils and do bad things, harmful things to humans, and/or themselves also. (Right, Master.) Of course, the volcanoes, they are just one of the signs. It’s all predicted already. In the bad times, the end times, many disasters will come, consuming humans. (Yes, Master.) Not just the pandemic. I have told many months ago, no? (Yes, Master.) Was it last year, February? When I said there are many ticking bombs, not just one, and don’t have to even wait for climate change to destroy our world. Many ticking bombs, at the same time. You see? We have many things at the same time. (Yes, Master.) Volcanoes. Storms. Floods. I mean, unprecedented. Not just normal. (Yes, Master.) And the humans are the pandemic themselves. They are forever killing, murdering, either their own race or the animal-peoples. (Yes, Master.) Forever. Forever destroying lives, and trees and forests, and oceans, and earth, and air. (Yes, Master.) The humans are the worst pandemic of all. Don’t you see? (Yes, Master.) And even many warnings went unheeded. First, Heaven just put a little pandemic and then let you be cured, and rest, and done. But they don’t stop, don’t take it as a sign of warning, continue. So, it gets worse and worse. You see that? (Yes, Master.)

And as most pet-peoplelove to eat from your hand, or and their favorite food or snack, do notoverfeed. Eating more is not good for them as they tend to get sick later inlife. Just like us humans, they are allotted only so much food and ornecessities during their sojourn on Earth. Too much extra will cost them theirpeace / comfort and health sooner or later.

In today’s news, Belgium supports urgent food relief across five nations, more intriguing data found about largest storm in solar system, architect designs structure to clear ocean plastic, scientists in Australia discover potential way to protect children from chronic middle ear infections, young South African enthusiast works to restore environment, French company builds world’s largest pea protein manufacturing facility in Canada, and new mobile app helps aviation industry staff report wildlife-people trafficking.Belgium provides vital food support to five countries. The government of Belgium has donated €7.5 million to the World Food Programme to address urgent food shortages due to conflicts, economic decline and displacement in Ethiopia, Jordan, Lebanon, Gaza and Syria. This generous gift will benefit: 157,600 of the most disadvantaged people in Gaza, with over 70% being women and children; 270,000 individuals in Syria; 1.5 million people across the Tigray region of Ethiopia; more than 35,800 refugees through a cash-based transfer system in Jordan; and over 4,600 vulnerable residents for a 12-month period in Lebanon. Belgium is a Shining World Leadership Award for Animal Protection laureate. We are so touched by your compassion, Belgium. Also, our gratitude, World Food Programme, for your kind efforts. May all underprivileged people forever be blessed with peace and abundance, in Heaven’s grace. More data found about Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. The United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA’s) Juno spacecraft has revealed that the Great Red Spot, the largest storm in our solar system, reaches as deep as 350 to 500 kilometers. It also has a width of 16,000 kilometers. Furthermore, the storm appears to be propelled by jets that go as deep as 3,000 kilometers, which is leading scientists to the hypothesis that the celestial body’s upper and lower atmospheres are inextricably connected. This significant mission was the first to provide data from inside the planet. Scheduled to end by 2021, NASA recently prolonged the space operation until 2025. Many thanks, NASA scientists, for this fascinating information. In Divine guidance, may we all turn towards our vast inner wisdom to further understand the marvelous secrets of the Universe. Vegan: noble race. Up next, architect designs structure to clear ocean plastic. We shall now extend our warmest appreciation to the park rangers who protect and conserve our woodlands, forests, ecosystems and people of the wildlife kingdom who dwell within national parks.

Now, the global weather. Architect designs floating structure to remove ocean plastic. Senior designer Lenka Petráková at Zaha Hadid Architects in the United Kingdom has developed a floating, self-sustaining structure called The 8th Continent that could help clear and recycle plastic debris from the oceans. Named for the gyre of plastic waste in the North Pacific Ocean, the five-part, solar energy-operated structure would have staff on board supplied with freshly grown food from greenhouses and desalinated water. Furthermore, it would feature biodegradable waste collectors and a research and education center to enhance people’s understanding of the dire state of our oceans. The design won the 2020 Grand Prix Award for Architecture and Innovation of the Sea from Foundation Jacques Rougerie. What an impressive idea, Lenka Petráková, to help protect marine habitats. May your ingenious structure soon become a reality as we diligently care for the planet, in Celestial love. Australian scientists find certain bacteria protect children from chronic middle ear infections. Researchers from the University of Queensland have discovered two strains of bacteria that are present in the upper respiratory tracts of children who don’t develop middle ear infections. The scientists concluded that to prevent the condition, the two types of bacteria must interact with each other. The infections are said to affect between 33 and 50% of all youngsters within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and is the top cause of preventable deafness and hearing loss for these groups. The researchers noted that through further understanding, they hope to create a protective probiotic or drug treatment option that could be used worldwide. Way to go, University of Queensland scientists, for your promising discovery. In God’s Goodwill, may we always cherish and safeguard the beloved youth, guiding them to become compassionate caretakers of society. South African young environmentalist spends past four years helping restore planet. Ten-year-old Romario Valentine’s eco-actions at home and abroad include: 180 beach cleanups, the planting of over 455 trees around the world through several organizations, helping 900 endangered bird-persons, and much more. He also creates eco-art out of waste and paints pictures of endangered bird-people to spread awareness. In addition, Romario is the youngest Ambassador for Ocean Sole, a Kenyan company that partners with local artists to transform washed ashore flip flops into vibrant wildlife and marine sculptures. Our cheerful praises, Romario Valentine, for your ongoing dedication to protecting the planet. May your actions continue inspiring others to follow in your footsteps, as we take every opportunity to leave a trail of love in our wake, in the wisdom of the Providence. Vegan side effect: can’t apply 4 vampire membership. Coming up, French company builds world’s largest pea protein manufacturing facility in Canada. We’ll just step outside for a moment to gather the dried grass clippings in our yard and mix it together with the organic compost. You’re watching Noteworthy News on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Outstanding News for a Wondrous World. French company launches world’s largest pea protein production facility. Plant-based ingredient business Roquette recently opened the largest pea protein manufacturing plant in the world in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, in Canada. Including the company’s French plant, Roquette will have the capacity to process 250,000 metric tons of the legume per year. It chose Canada as a base to expand its global operations, as the nation grows the most peas of any country worldwide. The US$465 million Canadian facility equipped with the latest technology will help to satisfy global demand for the product, which is expected to almost double to US$1.4 billion by 2025. Great news, Roquette, on your wise investment into the future of food. In Divine mercy, may all planetary citizens soon switch to plant-based proteins to protect our health, the environment and our animal-people friends. New mobile application helps prevent trafficking of wildlife-people in aviation industry. Non-government organization TRAFFIC (Wildlife Trade Monitoring Network), Crime Stoppers International (CSI), and USAID Reducing Opportunities for Unlawful Transport of Endangered Species (ROUTES) have jointly created the Wildlife Sentinel mobile application. It enables aviation industry workers to anonymously report suspected cases of wildlife-people trafficking and corruption. Global illegal trading of wildlife-people parts, flora and fauna is estimated to be valued at a minimum of US$19 billion annually, and is facilitated through bribing corrupt officials, falsifying permits, and a lack of proper security checks. Developed by Ninja Software, the app can be downloaded freely via the Apple Store and Google Play, and is currently available in English, Spanish and Portuguese. In the two months since its launch, more than 120 reports have been received through the app. Much appreciation, everyone involved, for this important step. We pray that a kind world of compassion soon dawns, in God’s Light. Here’s a joke of the day for you to giggle. It’s entitled, “Just Kids.” A kid says to her friend at school: “I think my smartphone is not working...” “Why do you say that?” “Because, I pushed the home button and I’m still at school.” And now we have a heartline from Han Ga-ram in Korea: I was initiated in my 20s, and in my late 20s, I meditated intensively on a famous mountain in Korea for 17 hours a day for six months. After that retreat, I got some inner inspiration and decided to go on a trip to India and stay in Rishikesh. But at that time, I had no inner experience. I just felt mountains were mountains, rivers were rivers, and Rishikesh was just a convenient place to eat vegan food. After that, my wisdom eye was opened, and after experiencing the inner (Heavenly) Light and inner (Heavenly) Sound, I reflected on Rishikesh again. There were so many masters and ashrams in Rishikesh. However, I would choose only the Quan Yin Method and Master Ching Hai if She were there. This is because the Quan Yin Method is the best method to control the source that recognizes and evaluates everything, and Master Ching Hai is the only Master on Earth who has all the five signs of Buddha: “ability to immediately know and respond to our needs,” “ability to immediately answer spontaneous questions,” “ability to know about previous lives,” “ability to manifest into billions of transformation bodies,” and the “ability to end all the afflictions of the world (enlightenment).” Among all these abilities, Master’s endless “complete eradication of afflictions,” always give me new realizations of this world. Thank You, Master. Han Ga-ram from Korea Devout Han Ga-ram, We thank you for this motivating story of your lengthy retreat. Supreme Master Ching Hai is truly the Ultimate Master. May Heaven’s Blessings be upon our Beloved Master, and may compassion and joy always be in your heart and the hearts of the caring Korean people. In Celestial Light, Supreme Master TV team P.S. Master supports your spiritual progress and practice in this reply to you: “Perceptive Han Ga-ram, I applaud your single focus on the Divine and your enlightened application of the time given here on Earth to know your inner Master. May Buddha’s great Love grace you and united Korea.” “Whoever overcomes greed and anger, completely abstains from eating meat, he/she is near Buddha and Saints.” ~ Nguyễn Thành Nam (vegan) (Nam Quốc Buddhism) 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 your life be graced by Heavenly peace and glory.

Selections from the Holy Text of Tibetan Buddhism: Sixty Songs of Milarepa (vegetarian) – Songs 43-44, 46-50, Part 2 of 2

Selections from the Holy Text of Tibetan Buddhism: Sixty Songs of Milarepa (vegetarian) – Songs 43-44, 46-50, Part 2 of 2

“‘The Six Paramitas (Perfections) contain all Buddhist teachings. To those who practice Dharma (true teaching), Wealth is but a cause of diversion. He who gives his (wealth) all away, Will be born a Prince of Heaven. Noble is it to practice charity! Moral discipline is a ladder to Liberation Which neither monks nor laymen can discard; All Buddhist followers should practice it! Buddhist patience, by the Patience-preacher exemplified, Is the virtue which the Buddha cherished most. It is a garment difficult to wear, Yet all merits grow when it is worn. Diligence is the short path to Freedom And a necessity for Dharma-practice. Without it nothing can be done. Ride then upon the horse of diligence! These four Dharmas (true teachings) bring merit to men, Being indispensable for all. Now I will speak of Wisdom. Meditation is a teaching between these two, As it applies both to Wisdom and Merit practice. By it, all distractions are overcome, For all Buddhist practice, it is most important. Wisdom-Paramita (Perfection) is the teaching of Final Truth, The dearest treasure of all Buddhas. Enjoy it then without exhaustion. It is the Wish-fulfilling Gem of Heaven, Fulfilling the hopes of all sentient beings. To those who can renounce activities, Wisdom-Paramita (Perfection) will bring final rest. This provision of Wisdom is most precious, Whereby, one will reach perfection step by step.’”“‘If to Nirvana (the highest paradise) you aspire, Abandon then this world. If from the depths of your heart You want to practice Dharma (true teaching), Listen to my words and follow in my footsteps. If you want to consummate the (Supreme) Accomplishment, Never forget that death will come. If hard and long you meditate, all Buddhas In the past, the present and the future Will be well-pleased. If you are ever straight-forward and upright in the Dharma (true teaching), You will receive the grace of your Guru. If without error you understand these words, You can be sure that more happiness And joy will come your way, For such is my experience.’” “‘Should you, oh, faithful lady Devas, Intend to practice the Dharma (true teaching) often, Inwardly you should practice concentration and contemplation. The renunciation of external affairs is your adornment. Oh, bear in mind this remedy for external involvement! With self-composure and mindfulness, You should remain serene. Glory is the equanimity of your mind and speech! Glory is the resignation from many actions! Should you meet disagreeable conditions, Disturbing to your mind, Keep watch upon yourself and be alert. Keep warning yourself: “The danger of anger is on its way”. When you meet with enticing wealth, Keep watch upon yourself and be alert. Keep a check upon yourself: “The danger of craving is on its way”. Should hurtful, insulting words come to your ears, Keep watch upon yourself and be alert, And so remind yourself: “Hurtful sounds are but delusions of the ear”. When you associate with your friends, Watch carefully and warn yourself: “Let not jealousy in my heart arise” When you are plied with services and offerings, Be alert and warn yourself: “Let me beware lest pride should spring up in my heart!” At all times, in every way, keep watch upon yourself. At all times, try to conquer evil thoughts within you! Whatever you may meet in your daily doings, You should contemplate its void and illusory nature. Were even one hundred saints and scholars gathered here, More than this they could not say. May you all be happy and prosperous! May you all, with joyful hearts, Devote yourselves to the practice of the Dharma (true teaching)!’”

Peace On Your Plate Band, Part 1 of 2

Peace On Your Plate Band, Part 1 of 2

Peace on Your Plate is a young UK-based band formed by like-minded vegan musicians to make music and songs for the animal-people. Established in 2019, the band has released songs with positive and compassionate messages that are energetic, easy to sing along, and appealing to the public.Both Gavin and Giles fondly recollect a special moment during the recording for their first released piece, entitled “Peace On Your Plate.” “We recorded it at the famous Abbey Road Studios. And there was an interesting moment where I was recording the vocals, and the engineer in the studio just between takes told me that I was singing in the microphone that the Beatles had used in the 1960s, which was a bit of an odd moment in my life as I’m a massive Beatles’ fan, so that was pretty amazing.” “And it was as if there was some energy, some spiritual energy that was in the microphone. That when we sang, we were able to transmit those blessings, I think as the Beatles did, of course. Paul McCartney was a long time vegetarian and now vegan, and George Harrison, and John Lennon at one time. They all had that path.”Although the band experienced certain setbacks when trying to promote their first song, they are persistently moving forward towards well-deserved success and recognition. The next released musical piece by the band was an upbeat song, named “Ask Me Why.” “Come on come on come on I’m on a quest for a better world, caring and compassionate A journey to end suffering, in every way I can. And you ask me why am I vegan? Well I am Because I’m a compassionate human. Excuse my imposition but are you aware of the fact That lives were made to suffer for what is on your dinner plate. And you ask me why am I vegan? When you should ask yourself why you’re not Because I know you got it in you to be. So come on come on come on, we can save the world go vegan Yes come on come on come on, give the innocents their freedom Make it happen.”

Plant-Based Nutritional Fitness with Clean Machine’s Geoff Palmer (vegan), Part 1 of 2

On today’s show, we will hear from natural bodybuilding champion and vegan, Geoff Palmer, and go beyond the vegan stereotype of needing a huge amount of protein to build muscle. Geoff Palmer is the founder and CEO of Clean Machine, a plant-based, all-natural, fitness nutrition company. The sudden joy of walking out of the darkness of depression enlightened Geoff. He realized that “happiness” wasn’t what one got out of life, but what one gives to life. “And my higher self just spoke to me and said, stop harming the animals. You know you don't want to suffer. You're glad that you're no longer suffering. The animals don't want to suffer either. So, it just was automatic. I quit drinking, quit smoking, quit doing all animal products in one day, it was just, it was done.” Geoff has since dedicated his life to informing others about veganism and nutrition. “The first thing that people ask me when they find out I’m vegan is: ‘Where do you get your protein?’ My response is something that usually leaves blank faces which is: ‘The same place that you do.’ And they are like, ‘No, I eat meat’ I said, ‘Yes, but that protein doesn’t come from that animal. All protein is only made by plants.’ The question that then arises is, ‘Why are we feeding all this plant nutrition, the vitamins, minerals, essential fats, protein, carbohydrates and fibre to an animal and then killing the animal and taking all of its plant nutrients?’” Our most gracious and beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai is unconditionally committed to save all those who give up the barbaric habit of meat-eating. Please repent and change to the compassionate vegan diet. “Just turn vegan, U-turn, and everything else will be wiped out. I will have the power to do that. I will wipe out everything. Whatever they have done before, it will be all forgiven. But I need them to cooperate. That’s all. Just turn vegan and repent.”

One-Year King, Part 3 of 9, Dec. 12, 2021

One-Year King, Part 3 of 9, Dec. 12, 2021

So the Buddha said charity is good. Meaning material or mental charity is good. But the best charity is to give the true Dharma, the true teaching. Meaning, give people enlightenment so that they can be liberated forever. To be a real monk, it’s when you are under an enlightened Master, like Jesus. At that time His monks are real monks. (Yes, Master.) Or when the Buddha was alive, at this time, His monks were real monks. (Yes, Master.)And if the lineage is already broken by an unenlightened chief-priest, then, nothing more is left from that religion. (Yes, Master.) By no means, the teaching is still effective. It still helps people, to have some guidelines, to live a decent human life, to have some moral standards. (Yes, Master.) But that is not for enlightenment. And not for going to Heaven straight. (Yes, Master.) Even if you do a lot of charity, just for gain and fame, or not. These are just inside the physical, the Three Worlds’ merits. It won’t help you to gain enlightenment – truly inside, the Kingdom, to recognize, to know the Kingdom. And you may gain some merit, like you’ll be born in some lower Heaven, enjoy some good time over there for a while. And then be reborn again. Depends on what your karma has in store next. If the next karma is enough merit for you to be a human, which is rare, then you will be born as a human. If the next karma in store for you is below human, then you have to be reborn as whatever next. (Yes, Master.) Or born in hell. So, to do merit, like giving charity, and all that, it’s nothing to boast about. That’s why Jesus said, “If you give from the left hand, don’t let the right hand know it.” Many people give just for fame and gain. (Yes, Master.) And that kind, doesn’t even gain you any merit at all. Buddha said, “The person who gives must have a pure heart. And the person who receives must also have a good heart.” Otherwise, can give and take but no merit for either. You see that? (Yes, Master.) Ah! It’s not just like you want to do some charity, and then just do it, just for people to praise you, and all that. Then, it means nothing. It won’t take you anywhere.A long time ago, there was a King Liáng Wǔdì of China. He’s supposed to be a devout Buddhist. He built many temples. And he donated to many monks and all that. (Yes.) he was very proud of it. And, of course, he’s a king. So, anybody around him would say, “Oh, Your Majesty, immense merit.” (Yes.) Big heart and great compassion, all that stuff. But it wasn’t like that. Because when he met Bodhidharma, the first Patriarch of Zen Buddhism in China, he immediately asked Him, “I built many temples. I helped many monks. How much merit do I have?” So Bodhidharma said, “Nothing.” “You have nothing. No merit.”You don’t have to be Bodhidharma to see immediately that this king, Liáng Wǔdì he was just for fame. (Yes, Master. Understand.) All he worried about was merit. (Yes.) Like, so that people can count it. Like, 1,000 merit points, 2,000, 3,000.And then he asked Bodhidharma, because people recommended Bodhidharma to him, like a great enlightened Master, from India at that time. So instead of asking Him, “How to get enlightened?” “How much merit do I have?” As if you can put it on the scale (Yes.) and weigh it. (Yes.) How much? Oh, 2560 grams of merit. My God. (Yes.) Yes. The Buddha encouraged charity, that’s for sure. (Yes, Master.) But He also said that this only earns you merit in the Three Worlds. (Right.) The Three Worlds that we have, including this world, are destructible. One day they will be gone. But, He also cautions that the giver and the receiver both should have a pure heart. (Yes.) Pure intention. Unconditional spirit. Otherwise, they have no merit. (Yes, Master.) So, this is a trick in these Three Worlds. The Three Worlds are perishable. And it’s not conducive for enlightenment or liberation. (Yes, Master.)It is if you find a Master, and learn how to get enlightened, which is within you. Easy to find anyway, but not everyone accepts that, or wants that. This life in front of them is all they remember. It’s all they think of. It’s all they care about. They don’t know time is running out all the time. (Yes.) And soon they will become nothing. Then they will go to hell or where accordingly. There, nobody will defend for them. No gold, no diamonds, no family, no wife, no kids, can come to his rescue. Not even his lawyer. (Yes.) Not even his cabinet of government officials. (Yes, Master.) If he is in a high office, like president, or prime minister. None can help him at all.I hope everybody will realize that, but it’s so difficult to tell them anything. The material world blinds them, blinds them and binds them so hard, nobody can escape.Sometimes I’m thinking to myself, am I too busybody. I’m taking on too much, too big. Too big. Too big a deal. (Yes.) Because, you see, most of the Masters came to our world, and initiated just a few. (Yes, Master.) Maybe some thousands, max. Because, in each and every epoch of our world, in every period of our time, there are only some handful of people who are virtuous and truly seek the Kingdom of God or want to seek the Buddha nature, want to go Home. True Home. (Yes, Master.) So, any Master who comes, they will just gather those. And they just ignore the rest. (Yes.) Because they know it’s a waste of time. (Oh.) Not because they are not compassionate. (Yes, Master.) It’s like that. Useless.Just like the Zen Master (Mazu Daoyi) said, “You cannot keep polishing the brick and make it into a mirror.” (Yes.) You see, a brick cannot become a mirror, no matter how much you polish. (Exactly.) And all these rituals and all the things are nothing for enlightenment. (Yes, Master.) Even if you eat just once a day and do nothing bad to anybody and do charity, these are just merits within the Three Worlds. If you don’t know the principle of spiritual practice, if you don’t know the enlightening method, then you will be just in the whirlpool again, again and again. You got that? (Yes, Master.) This life you are good, next life maybe not. This life you are a king, next life you may be a servant. The recycling system of this world or within the Three Worlds are scary things.Even many heavenly gods when their time is up, they also get recycled again, either as humans or less, or even in hell. (Oh!) Yeah. This is a very scary system. They spare no one, because they all go in the wrong direction. The only way to get out is go in the right direction, like a maze, in the labyrinth. (Yes, Master.) They could never get out unless they know the way. Unless somebody already knows the way and takes them out. It’s like that. And then the more they run around in there, the more they get exhausted. And then they get up and run again and get exhausted again, just like reincarnate again, again and again. Yeah? (Yes.) Sometimes good. Sometimes bad.So the Buddha said charity is good. Meaning material or mental charity is good. But the best charity is to give the true Dharma, the true teaching. Meaning, give people enlightenment so that they can be liberated forever. (Yes, Master.) Out of the maze, yeah? Out of the labyrinth so that they won’t ever suffer again and they can also even help others to be liberated. You got that? (Yes, Master.) So what’s the use of being rich again and then being poor again, and rich again, being a king again, and being a servant next, and run around in this world. (Yes.) Even if you give them food and all that, it’s a temporary relief only. There is no help for the long run. (Yes, Master.) That’s why the Buddha said, to donate, to give the true Dharma is the best, the best gift, the best charity, the best donation. (Yes, Master.)Nowadays, it’s very rare that you can find some enlightened priest or monk. If they are not evil, you should be happy already. You got that? (Yes, Master.) Not to talk about these Vati-gang and pedo-priests. They are devils incarnate. (Yes, Master.) Or they are under devils’ influence to do such things. Just like people drive wrongly because they were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. There is no help much in this world.And here I want to help the whole world, so that’s why it’s difficult, my life, my mission. Most Masters, they only came for a few. Because they know that’s all they can do. The rest are just blind, deaf and dumb. What for waste your precious time. (Yes, Master.)Lao Tzu, He also said that when the people hear the Tao, meaning the true teaching, the wise one would immediately accept. The middle one thinks about it and the fool laughs out loud, laughs sarcastically. (Yes, Master.) Think they’re so stupid. And the stupid people, they say many things. And then some stupid also follow it. That is the thing. The blind lead the blind, all fall into the ditch. That’s what it is. You got it now? (Yes, Master.)So don’t ever ask me about this devil of a Vati-gang chief. He’s not worthy of anything. He’s just from hell. That’s why he accepts all kinds of sinful activities and brushes them aside, like nothing. (Yes, Master.) Has no love, no compassion. You can see very well. (Yes, Master.) Anybody who has a little love and compassion would feel so sorrowful for the children who have been raped, molested and abused, and maybe tortured and murdered. But he, no. You see that? (Yes, Master.) You can see what he says and what he acts and his expression, you can know this guy is an empty shell and only the devil lives in it, controls it, maneuvers and manipulates it. (Yes, Master.) There is nothing of that guy. I just hope he gets out soon − kicked out, or resign, or run away in shame. But I’m not sure, because the devil is in him, so I don’t think he knows any of those things, (Yes, Master.) about shame or about remorse, about love, nothing. This is alien to the devils. That’s why they’re devils. (Yes, Master.)

In today’s news, Russia supports World Food Programme to assist drought-affected Kenyan families, COVID-19 measures create worldwide “Learning Poverty” for students, United States engineers study bird-people to improve drones, children in United Kingdom join forest schools to reconnect with nature, Indian farmer dedicates land to deer-people, climate summit in Scotland, UK, features fully vegan menu, and new animal-people protection laws approved in Hungary.Russia contributes to World Food Programme (WFP)’s efforts to support Kenyans harmed by drought. The government of Russia has sent US$1 million worth of fortified vegetable oil to assist the WFP in supplying food packages that also contain cereals and pulses to drought-affected Kenyans, as well as nutritious flour for malnourished mothers and a nutritional supplement for those younger than five. The lack of rain in the last two years has caused an increasing number of people to be at risk of running out of crop stockpiles before the following year’s harvests. This situation has created around 2.5 million individuals in need of food assistance. Russia has previously supported the WFP’s work in East Africa through donations of trucks in 2014 and 2019. Russia is a laureate of two Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, a Shining World Generosity Leadership Award, and a Shining World Leadership Award for Wildlife-Protection. Many thanks, Russia and World Food Programme, for your kind assistance to our Kenyan sisters and brothers. In God’s Grace, may humanity’s swift change to a gentle, plant-based lifestyle bring immediate and sustained improvements for all. “Learning Poverty” from COVID-19 measures has drastically affected education globally. A joint report published by the World Bank and two United Nations agencies warns that school closures amid the COVID-19 pandemic have affected over1.6 billion students worldwide, and this group collectively risk losing approximately US$17 trillion in lifetime earnings. Significantly, children living in what is now termed “Learning Poverty,” the inability to read simple text by age 10, could reach 70% in low- and middle-income nations, while the most vulnerable youth of lower socioeconomic status in some countries have suffered even greater learning losses. To halt and reverse this trend, the paper emphasizes that reopening schools to get children’s education back on track must be a “top and urgent priority.” Our appreciation for the important report, World Bank and United Nations agencies involved. May all countries take steps to recover learning for our younger generation, as we beckon a pandemic-free world, in Heaven’s upliftment. “The meat-eater forfeits the seed of Great Compassion, severs the seed of the Buddha Nature and causes [animal-people and transcendental] beings to avoid him.” ~ Brahmajala Sutra (Buddhism) Up next, United States engineers study bird-people to improve drones. Let’s pause to appreciate the process assistants who help with various clerical and administrative activities in organizations. We’ll be right back, with more enriching news on Supreme Master Television. Hi, sea-loving friends, how have you been? I’m Maggie, a young vegan artist from the Mandarin Fish kingdom. With joy in my heart, I live my days, and that’s because of the loving path I tread. You can experience this by becoming vegan too! And it’s so easy! Here is a tip on when you should wash your make-up brushes to keep them in excellent shape. Make-up applicators such as brushes can harbor numerous bacteria. They accumulate dirt, dust, and anything that is in the air or on your skin. Therefore, it is important that you wash brushes for wet make-up weekly and dry make-up monthly. Just use a little bit of soap and some warm water, then dry them overnight. Your skin will be grateful for your effort! Thank you for tuning in, and love you for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! Now the weather around the globe! Engineers in United States model bird-peoples’ feet to enhance drones. Stanford University engineers recently created robotic bird-people-like feet that can be attached to small quadcopter drones enabling them to catch and carry objects and successfully land on trees and varying terrains. Extensive iterations were required to perfect their “stereotyped nature-inspired aerial grasper,” or SNAG. The design was ultimately modeled on the Peregrine falcon-people’s legs and will allow search and rescue drones to save battery power while on missions by perching or resting in different locations, as opposed to hovering in the air. The new technology could assist environmentalists in collecting data more easily in forests, among other possible usages. What an amazing feat, engineers from Stanford University, to learn from our beautiful bird-people friends and thus improve technology. In the loving guidance of the Providence, may we continue to evolve in a positive manner with respectful inspiration from the natural world around us. Forest schools in United Kingdom gaining popularity. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, there has been increased enrollment in forest schools, which give children the opportunity to learn to use clay, make campfires, identify insects, and play in nature as part of their developmental journey. The gatherings are held after regular school hours and include a trained forest-school teacher. The nature-promoting concept that originated in Scandinavia is gaining popularity due to the sedentary lifestyles of the current generation of children, where communication and education is mostly indoors and via technology. Parents have noted the joy and overall improvement in mental health of the youth participating. Such a breath of fresh air, United Kingdom, on the growing trend to bring children back to the pure essence of Mother Nature. In Celestial care, may forest schools soon become a part of normal education in all nations, as we seek balance with the planet and our souls. Farmer in India shares his land with deer-people. R. Gurusamy, a 70-year-young farmer of Kothapalayam in Tamil Nadu, welcomed three deer-people when he saw them grazing on his ancestral land in 1998, and has since designated 50-acres (20 hectares), comprising most of the land, for their growing numbers to roam. To make sure they have access to sufficient water, Mr. Gurusamy created some ponds and over the years has received support from the local forest department, various non-governmental organizations and environmentalists. Currently, there are about 1,800 deer-people living on the land, and forest guards patrol the area to prevent poaching, while plans to relocate the herbivorous friends to a safer environment are also being considered. May God bless you, Mr. R. Gurusamy, for your loving care of the elegant people of the deer kingdom. In Divine glory, may the lives of all animal-people be honored and respected. No 2 vegan: only people who want 2 protect themselves n their loved ones choose it. Coming up, climate summit in Scotland, UK, features fully vegan menu. We’ll pause for a moment to be thankful for the mysteries that exist in our Universe and beyond, so each time our scientists discover something new, it gives us an opportunity to appreciate God’s myriad creations.

Hungarian Parliament unanimously approves new animal-people welfare laws. The compassionate legislation, which was drafted with help of local animal-people advocacy organizations, incorporates a prison sentence of one to five years for cruelty to animal-people, including the acts of poisoning and baiting. The punishment will apply even if the bait is prepared with the intention to harm without actually being placed. The scope of what constitutes cruelty has also been expanded. It is a crime to illegally breed people from the animal kingdom and there is a two year sentence for organizing animal-people fighting contests. Our appreciation, Hungarian Parliament, for your caring laws to ensure our animal-people friends will be protected and safe within your peaceful and abundant nation. In blessings of the Cosmos, may your actions also help to raise awareness of the importance of kindness, as we safeguard all beings with our loving deeds and thoughts. This joke of the day will work the best if you laugh with your whole body! Here’s an original joke from our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai called “A Hair Compliment?” A customer, looking over the bowl of soup in front of him, says to the waitress: “Your hair is so beautiful and is so lustrously black, and it looks good on your head…” “Oh, thank you!” “But, I don’t like it in my soup, please bring me a new one!” And now we have a heartline from Văn Toàn in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam: Dear Supreme Master Ching Hai and Supreme Master Television team, Thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for coming, taking care of this beautiful planet, raising awareness, and speeding the spiritual evolution of humankind in this period of transformation.

Selections from the Holy Text of Tibetan Buddhism: Sixty Songs of Milarepa (vegetarian) – Songs 43-44, 46-50, Part 1 of 2

Selections from the Holy Text of Tibetan Buddhism: Sixty Songs of Milarepa (vegetarian) – Songs 43-44, 46-50, Part 1 of 2

One of the renowned Masters of this religion is Jetsun Milarepa, meaning Milarepa the Revered One. A former magician who became a yogi, poet, and hermit, this spiritual hero of Tibet lived from 1052 to 1135, and His story of personal redemption has inspired lives across many generations. Through songs called dohas, Jetsun Milarepa imparted Divine teachings on spiritual devotion and wisdom. Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken about the venerated Milarepa on several occasions, as during this lecture given in 1992, at the Hsihu Ashram in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. “Milarepa, His faith in seeking the Truth was very firm. He was terrified of hell and knew that His karma was unimaginable. So no matter how much His Master scolded Him, He endured it. His faith was from inside. He wasn't taught to do so. No one taught Him to do so and no one forced Him. From the hardships that He underwent, we can see why He was able to attain the Truth.” “Milarepa sang in reply: ‘Property and wealth are like dew on grass; Knowing this, gladly should one give them away. It is most precious to be born a leisured and worthy human being; Knowing this, one should with care observe the precepts As if protecting one’s own eyes. Anger is the cause of falling to the realms below; Knowing this, one should refrain from wrath, Even at the risk of life. Benefit to oneself and to others Can never be achieved through sloth; Strive, therefore, to do good deeds. A perturbed, wandering mind Never sees the truth of Mahayana (the Buddha’s Great Way of Wisdom-Compassion); Practice, therefore, concentration. The Buddha cannot be found through searching; So contemplate your own mind. Until the autumn mists dissolve into the sky, Strive on with faith and determination.’” “‘If the poisonous snake of Klesa (defilement) is not killed, The yearning for wisdom only leads to fallacy. If venomous jealousy is not overcome, One’s yearning for the Bodhi-mind will be an illusion. If one refrains not from hurting people, One’s longing for respect and honor Is merely wishful thinking. If one cannot conquer ego-clinging and prejudice, One’s craving for the Equality of Dharma (true teaching) Only brings wrong views. If one cannot subdue the demon, clinging-ego, One’s Klesas (defilements) will be great and his Yoga bound to fail. If one’s actions conform not with the Dharma (true teaching), One will always hinder the good deeds of others. If one has not yet absorbed one’s mind in Dharma (true teaching), One’s babbling and prattling will only disturb others’ minds. Therefore, do not waste your life in words and chatter, But try to gain the assurance of no-regret And the confidence of facing death!’”

The Spirited Art and Culture of Azerbaijan, Part 1 of 2

The Spirited Art and Culture of Azerbaijan, Part 1 of 2

Situated in the Caucasus region bridging Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Azerbaijan is a land endowed with gorgeous landscapes ranging from high mountain ridges and lowland terrains to the Caspian Sea, as well as rich and diverse wildlife. The name Azerbaijan comes from the ancient Persian words “azer” which means fire, and “baygan” which means protector, referring to the area around Baku, the current capital city. Azerbaijan’s cultures and traditions have been recognized as a world treasure to be protected and preserved. The art of carpet making is a family tradition in Azerbaijani that has been passed down from mother to daughter for generations. The traditional, handmade Azerbaijani carpet was designated a Masterpiece of Intangible Heritage by UNESCO in 2010. The Lahij village is known as the center of Azerbaijan’s copper craft. The village preserves the traditions of copper casting, forging, carving and polishing, which are usually carried out by a copper-smelting master who is assisted by his apprentice. The folklore of Azerbaijan offers a wealth of tales, epics, proverbs, songs, wise sayings and even fairytales for children, some of which go back thousands of years. The folk poetry “Bayati” is one of the oldest art forms that follow strict rules. Usually recited in reflective and contemplative tones by the performer, the Bayatis express the deep feelings and concerns of the common people. Another ancient art is Ashiq, a form of folk music and poetry created by Ashiks, which means “the lovers of nature and life” in Azerbaijani. Along with Ashiq, the Azerbaijani Mugham, another form of folk musical composition, is also on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The tar is a traditionally crafted, long necked, plucked lute, which is the most popular musical instrument in Azerbaijan. UNESCO added the craftsmanship and performance art of the tar to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2012. One of the most famous and respected mugham singers is Alim Qasimov, who has recorded nine albums, frequently appears on TV and in newspapers, and travels internationally to perform.

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission – Tiny Homes and Big Hope for the Homeless

Mr. Ken Craft is the founder and CEO of Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission, an exemplary caring housing and homeless service agency with 220 staff and 17 locations across Los Angeles, California, in the United States. Opened in 2009, this noble organization’s mission is to prevent poverty, hunger, and homelessness by extending dignified housing and life transforming services to the less fortunate. Responding to the deepening homeless crisis during the Covid-19 pandemic, Hope of the Valley collaborated with the city government in launching “Tiny Home, Big Hope” initiatives, which provide tiny homes and key services to some of the most vulnerable people in Greater Los Angeles. “It provides a place for people to start over. It's safe, we have four security guards on site at all times. And then we also have a place where people can store their belongings and a place for those that might have pets. You'll notice the bright colors, and that's intentional. We want this to be a place of life and good energy. If you look inside of here, you'll notice that there are two beds, there's air conditioning, there's heating, there's shelving, there's two electrical outlets so people can charge their cell phone and other electronics. And most importantly, there is a front door that locks. And this is so important, especially for so many women who have been traumatized and sexually abused living on the streets. This is what's known as interim housing. And the next step from here is to then move people into permanent housing.” Upon hearing about Hope of the Valley’s caring work, Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present the Shining World Compassion Award to the Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission, plus a humble US$10,000 to further your caring endeavors, with special thanks to the Los Angeles city government for your loving support.” “In recognition of exemplary kindness, providing housing services to the vulnerable, courageously advocating for dignified living while nurturing hope, building shelters and a caring home, enriching spirits and saving lives through unconditional love. With compliments and gratitude for your wise, compassionate and benevolent commitment to uplift citizens.”

One-Year King, Part 2 of 9, Dec. 12, 2021

But this pope, he is not Catholic, he’s not Christian anyway. One time, I saw he looked like a devil, (Wow!) incarnate. And I was shocked myself. I was shocked. (Wow.) So he wants to destroy the church and Christianity. You can see that very well. (Yes, Master.) Anytime anything happens, he just breaks all the rules, all the precepts, which have been passed down since time immemorial, since Moses’ and Jesus’ time already. But this pope, he is not Catholic, he’s not Christian anyway. One time, I saw he looked like a devil, (Wow!) incarnate. And I was shocked myself. I was shocked. (Wow.) So he wants to destroy the church and Christianity. You can see that very well. (Yes, Master.) Anytime anything happens, he just breaks all the rules, all the precepts, which have been passed down since time immemorial, since Moses’ and Jesus’ time already. (Yes, Master.) So, extramarital relationship is OK, and raping children is OK too. You saw all that? And then killing babies in the womb or outside the womb is OK too. You see that? (Yes, Master.) Is there any religion resembled at all? (No, Master.) (Not at all.) (Totally not.) None of the religions ever advocates all this, except him. (Yes.) So, don’t have to believe me. See what he does, what he says, what he thinks, because what he thinks comes out. (Yes, Master.) Then you can know he’s a devil incarnate. He’s an Antichrist. (Yes.) "Speech by Pope Francis – New York City, United States – Sept. 24,2015:We need to remember that we are followers of Jesus Christ. And his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure. The failure of the cross.""Interview by EI Espectador – Sept. 3, 2017 Jose Galat:This is an illegitimate pope. Illegitimate because he was appointed not by the Holy Spirit, but by 'a mafia of cardinals.' 'Mafia of cardinals'? That expression I don’t use. It was used precisely by the head of the conspiracy, Cardinal Danneels, the European cardinal, head of the conspiracy, who spoke of 'a mafia of cardinals,' while dying of laughter. With self-confidence and shamelessly, he confessed that with political maneuvers prohibited by the church under penalty of ex-communion, those cardinals elected Francis. So, the origin of Francis is an illegitimate origin." "Francis: And a little wine will loosen the tongue, and you can tell me the truth."- Prophecy by Archbishop George Browne, Ireland - 1551“But there is a new fraternity of late sprung up who call themselves Jesuits, which will deceive many, who are much after the Scribes and Pharisees’ manner. Among the Jews they shall strive to abolish the truth, and shall come very near to do it. These shall spread over the whole world, shall be admitted into the counsels of Princes, [...] winking at their sins"Prophecies about the Catholic Church“Rome will lose the faith and will become the seat of Antichrist.” - Message from Our Lady of La Salette (Blessed Virgin Mary) (vegetarian), received on September 19, 1846“The agents of 666 now are loosed in Rome and have entered into the highest places of the hierarchy. It will be bishop against bishop and cardinal against cardinal, till all that remains will come forward out of the cleansing.” - Message from Lord Jesus Christ (vegetarian), received on July 25, 1977“Clergy in My houses, where are your straying sheep? Can you not reprimand the evil doer? Shall you consort with Satan, allowing all manner of foul conduct and abominations in My House? Cleanse your House now, pastor, for you are being judged. The Eternal Father looks into your heart; your time grows short. All that is rotten will fall…” - Message from Lord Jesus Christ (vegetarian), received on November 1, 1975 He is here to destroy Christianity, and then to make people lose faith in Jesus, in God, and many of the good, virtuous and morally high priests. As you can see, many priests are really celibate, really morally upright. And even vegan. (Yes, Master.) "Interview by Million Dollar Vegan 2019 Pastor: I was a carnist like most folks. After a third stroke, I was given six months to live. And I went vegan the next day. Twenty-six days later, the paralysis of my left side was gone, my vision came back, the slurring and drooling ended. Then, I went on a mission to help people convert to veganism. My target audience is the 2.2 billion Christians that follow the Vatican. Organized religion surely knows that with animal flesh in your body, you block the connection to God. They know the Holy Spirit will not come into your soul when there’s a dead body in it. And because of that, they stay relevant. I had done great works, and I had never gotten a connection to the Lord. I studied scripture, I did all the right things as far as a Catholic Christian would be considered. But, the Holy Spirit never communicated with me until I had several years without flesh in my body. I tell people, you don’t need to come to church. If the church told you, stop eating flesh, and everybody got their connection that I have to God – stop eating meat, live a proper life, and God will find you. At 50 years old, if you use the math, I’m responsible for 5,000 deaths. How is it that I can face God one day? No apology can get there. So, I decided to give everything to the church, live on minimal things, just food. Because I need 5,000 lifetimes to make up for the 5,000 animals that died for me to eat them. I can’t create life. So, the best I can do is to give my life in the service of God." So I hope people don’t lose faith in God and in Christ because of this devil incarnate. (Yes, Master.) God! But you have to blame humanity also. You can’t just blame the devil. (Yes, Master.) If the humans are righteous and morally upright, and good and fine, then no devils would be allowed to jump onto our world and cause trouble. (Yes, Master.) So the fact that there is a devil sitting on the top of so-called Christianity, you can tell that our world is really at the worst scenario of morals and survival. (Yes, Master.) Oh, man. If you don’t have morality, you can’t survive. So you can tell that’s the end. (Yes, Master.) Almost there. I wish somebody would do something, or kick him out of that “Hurrican.” (hurricane+Vatican.) It’s not a Vatican. It’s a Vati-gang. (Yes, Master.) They’re ganging on everyone. On the good, and the oppressed, and the victims, and the meek, and the weak. (Yes, Master.)Yeah, tolerate all these – so-called tolerance and forgiveness, but gay marriage is not OK! You see that? (Yes, Master.) What have they done? They just want to marry each other and live together. (Yes, Master.) To share their happiness with everyone else. (Yes.) Even if they have sin, they confessed it to the world. And they wanted to be just accepted, and they live together. That’s all they do. They don’t kill anybody; they don’t steal anything. (Yes, Master.) They don’t profane against the teachings of Jesus like Francis. I don’t call him pope anymore. Like Francis and his hench pedo-priests. (Yes, Master.)But you should not be surprised. There are news saying that even gay escorts go into his residence. (Yes.) They discovered it. And also in his Instagram, he’s supposedly watching raunchy girls, with very little clothes on, these poor girls. (Yes, Master.) And even ticked on it, said, “Like.” Put a “Like” on it. (Oh, wow.) Some people argue that maybe it’s not him, maybe somebody else managed his Instagram account. (Yes, Master.) But the leaf doesn’t fall too far from the tree. (Yes, Master.)And if he allows such things, or if the people who work for him are doing such things, supposed to be a holy Vatican inside, then he is also not anything better. (Yes, Master.) Even if somebody managed the Instagram account for him. (That’s true. Yes, Master.) I forgot what, Instagram or others on the internet. But it was there on several news. I watched it a long time ago, but I didn’t care about gossip too much. So I didn’t want to tell you. Just today, by the way. (Yes, Master.) If a so-called pope is behaving like that with escorts inside his private place, private residence, and if his internet account is for all the raunchy girls and all that…So the girl was even happy, she said, “Oh, the pope likes me. That means I’m going to Heaven.” Oh, my God. Poor thing. You see what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.) How bad an influence can that be. (Yes.) People can be so blind, and they’re so desperate for blessing from God, for something to hold on to, that they believe anything, such a so-called pope like that. Uglier than sin. So I wish I don’t ever have to hear his name or his evil antics again. (Yes, Master.) All the principles that I have passed down to you are from ancient times. It’s supposed to protect us. At least, protect us as a human, a decent human. (Yes, Master.) It’s not a dictatorship or anything. Of course, maybe some people fall. Sometimes they fall in marriage. It’s to pity and be forgiven but not as a rule. (Yes, Master.) You can forgive somebody if he repents and he won’t do it again. Truly repents and quits doing evil things. Or bad deeds. Then you can repent. But many things cannot be repented and erased. Like abortion, for example. Or if you hurt or kill your parents, or hurt the Buddha. Or things that divide the monkhood, (Yes.) the monks’ assembly. These things cannot be repented. The same with hurting the children. It says, also, seduce the young people. In the old times, they use more elegant words, but it’s meaning raping children. (Yes, Master.) These are also not forgivable.And they don’t even repent. They just go up a higher ladder, and then finding more skillful means to rape the children. Once they have done it, they will not stop. (Yes, Master.) It’s so easy. They’re just getting more skillful. And not easy to catch, that’s all. It’s like a habit already, or like an inborn evil tendency. Do you understand? (Yes, Master.) So, it’s not forgivable. These pedo-priests. (Yes, Master.) And maybe the pope forgives them all, or promotes them all, because maybe they’re in it together. (Yes.) So that they won’t tell, who knows. (Yes, Master.) Otherwise, what for the escorts go in and out, from his private residence, for what? (Yes.) And what for the Instagram account, watching raunchy girls, saucy girls, (Yes, Master.) with little on. (Yes, Master.) And even say, “Like.” (Yes.) You know, in Instagram, they put the “Like.” (Yes, Master.) So they can count how many people like that program, (Yes, Master.) and boast about it. He even ticked, “Like.” After that, maybe he will be quietly watching. (Yes.) Or may be watching porn also. Who knows whatever they’re doing in the Vati-gang there, (Yes, Master.) Vati-gang. And with the pedo-priest, what else they do. This is a system of evil. They are abusing the Holy name of Jesus. (Yes.) To cash in, and to build big temples to boast around and to be revered by people, just for name and gain. (Yes.) This should not be counted as religion. This is not a religious act and way of life. (No. No, Master.)
