Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the major holidays in Asia. It usually occurs in late September to the early October, on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, when there is a full moon at night. It is said that the moon on this day is the roundest and brightest, which symbolizes family reunion. The moon has various spiritual meanings. For some religions, the full moon is powerful. It is considered suitable to meditate and cleanse one’s energy under the moon. It is believed that moonlight is symbolic of love and purification. Supreme Master Ching Hai has also revealed the spiritual level of the moon, and spoke about both the spiritual and physical ways in which the moon benefits the Earth and all beings who dwell here.

There is a temple called Sunshine Monastery. “They worship Padmasambhava. So after they learned Master’s teachings, they all became vegetarian. The abbot told all of them to be vegetarian and stop wearing fur clothes. The animal leather and fur. And then they don’t smoke anymore, don’t drink anymore, and don’t hunt anymore.” If any leader is a vegetarian, they should be open about it and encourage everyone to be vegetarian, too. This way they will earn immense merits, and they can also protect this planet so that their own relatives, friends, and children can continue to live on this planet in a clean atmosphere. We don’t leave the Earth populated and full of toxic air for our children. The more good deeds we do, the more meritorious deeds we do, the longer the merits will last. If we do bad things, the merits will be lessened and shortened.

“‘Nhimbe’ means people working together with a common goal, emphasizing the direction they want to go. And this is why we named the project Nhimbe for Progress.” “The overall goal of Nhimbe is to uplift the people in Zimbabwe, and really recognize our spiritual relatedness, and how we have something to offer each other. Some things they’re lacking. Some things we’re lacking. And through this co-creative experience, there’s an exchange going on, and it’s a very powerful exchange.” Nhimbe for Progress is a project of Ancient Ways, a US-based non-profit organization founded. “We thank Ancient Ways for working so hard, continuously assisting us to be able to achieve these good things.” With blessings from God, may Ancient Ways and Nhimbe for Progress continue to successfully create a better life for disadvantaged people in Zimbabwe in the future.

A hologram is a reconstructed image of an object with brightness, contrast and three-dimensions that can be displayed at another time and place, even though the original objects are not there. The concept is similar to a sound recording, where the sound waves of music, for example, are recorded and stored on a medium such as a tape or CD from which it can be reproduced at a later time.

I encourage people to farm. If a country’s agriculture is stable, the people will be stable as well. “In Hebei Province, there is also a farmer who is 30 to 40 years old. He learned to farm with love. He doesn’t use any fertilizers. He can communicate with the birds, like sparrows, as well as insects. He says, ‘Please, don’t the crops on my land. I reserve this area for you to eat.’ All the insects and birds listen to him.” If we practice spiritually and have love, we can communicate with all beings. Our world needs more people like that. They don’t need to learn from me. They have love and are one with all beings. They are very compassionate. Then our world will be much better. The Dalai Lama is already a vegetarian, so everyone should be vegetarian as well. The whole Tibet should be vegetarian. All the monks should follow the Dalai Lama to be vegetarian. And all the Buddhists should follow the monks to be vegetarian. Then they can say they are sincere disciples.

But the more we practice well, the purer our heart is, the better the government will be and the more they will believe, “Okay, you are on the right path because you have become a better citizen than before.” “You understand more now, and you don’t bother your neighbor or the government. You know what the right things are, what the good things are.” I think that you are my representatives. Through you, the government or your neighbors will know who I am. It doesn’t matter whether I come back or not. Over there, you do good deeds and avoid bad things, and you are good citizens. Then, of course, the government will know, “Okay, learning from Master Ching Hai, studying with Auntie Hài is very good.” We always said that the government has to be good for the people to be good. It's not so. It's not so. If our karma (retribution) is bad, even if we have a good government, they can't do anything for us.

Being an enlightened king or official like that, you should let everyone know. If people knew about it, they would have more respect and would listen to the government more. Even non-vegan people, when hearing of those who are vegan, they do show some respect, let alone big leaders being vegan. People will definitely listen. Then they would also follow in doing it. A leader has to have this responsibility. Knowing what is good, they have to set good examples. That’s called leadership. Same for government leaders. If you know something is good, of course, you should be open about it. First, you would gain people’s respect. Second, people will follow your example. Third, doing so is good for the country and good for the world. Being a vegan is very… It’s not about religion anymore, not even about politics. Now it’s about saving the world, saving the planet so that our children later on could enjoy it like we do now or better. We shouldn’t let it get worse, and then after we die, how haphazardly our children would live, we don’t even care. That would be irresponsible.
