In today’s news, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly presents Shining World Compassion Award to elephant rescue organization operating in Kenya, Japan supports vulnerable families in Syria, Scotland excels in green energy transition, Germany invests in carbon capture technology, New Zealand shelters homeless citizens during pandemic, international fast food chain trials vegan meat in China, and American couple dedicates their retirement to saving birds.   In Shining World Compassion Award News from England… Wildlife charity and conservation organization, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, is best known for its Orphans’ Project, the first orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. Under the leadership of CEO Angela Sheldrick, the Trust has raised over 260 young elephants in need and has also provided veterinary care to thousands of other animals. Mr. Rob Brandford, the Executive Director of Sheldrick Wildlife Trust UK, graciously received the award on behalf of Ms. Sheldrick. The Trust in Kenya was established 40 years ago by Dame Daphne Sheldrick, in memory of her husband, conservationist David Sheldrick, who was the founder warden of a vast national park known as Tsavo. Daphne created the Trust so that she could find a ways and means to care for and provide for orphaned animals, specifically and best known elephants, but also rhinos, many types of antelopes, essentially any animal in need of help. Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai thankfully presented Sheldrick Wildlife Trust with the Shining World Compassion Award, plus US$10,000 “as a token of gratitude and support for this noble cause.” Our Association members in Surrey, England, were pleased to present to Rob Brandford the Award letter, crystalline plaque, Master’s publications and DVDs, as well as a check of US$10,000 from Master. “This Award is presented in recognition of the Trust’s extraordinary pioneering conservation work, leading the world as the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program.” “Thank you so much. It’s a great privilege to accept this award from Supreme Master Ching Hai on behalf of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Angela Sheldrick – the daughter of David and Daphne. We feel very humbled to have our work recognized globally. Ultimately, we don’t do this work for awards, no one does. But it’s a testament to the success of our project that the work that we’re doing has been recognized. And as I say, we feel extremely humbled and honored and extremely grateful to receive this. Thank you. It’s such an honor to receive this check, considerable funds, a very generous donation, which will empower us to be there for orphan baby elephants in need, so that we can provide them with the nurturing and healing they need, so that when they’re grown, they can return to the wild, where they belong, and where all animals naturally belong. Thank you so much. Our heartfelt congratulations, Angela Sheldrick, Rob Brandford and the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust team. May God forever bless you for saving so many of our sweet animal friends. For the full presentation of the Shining World Compassion Award to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, please tune in to our Shining World Award program at a later date.   Japan, a Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Animal Protection and Generosity laureate, supports food security in Syria. The Government of Japan has donated US$3.2 million to the United Nations World Food Programme for assisting 460,000 vulnerable individuals in Syria. Of the total amount, US$1.8 million will be put towards irrigation restoration, thus allowing 67,000 smallholder farmers to access water throughout the year and cultivate their own food to improve their incomes. The other US$1.4 million will provide emergency food aid to 392,000 conflict-affected people in northwest Syria. Our deep gratitude, Japan and World Food Programme, for your vital support of Syrian sisters and brothers in their time of need. May the hard-working people of Syria soon greet brighter and peaceful tomorrows, in Allah’s immense love.   Up next, Scotland excels in green electricity utilization. We’ll just take a little time to thank the pediatricians, who work long hours to care for the health of our tender babies, kids and teenagers. When we return, more comforting news ahead, here on Supreme Master Television!   Hi, loving friends, how have you been? I’m Wanda the Eurasian Beaver, and I’m a super healthy vegan.

Love you all for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! Thank you for your attention, and here’s the weather around our beautiful globe.   Scotland, United Kingdom, increases renewable electricity consumption. According to recent data, 90% of electricity usage in Scotland is now generated by renewables – a 14% increase from the last year. The nation seeks to attain 100% renewable electricity this year and may be on track to achieve it now that government subsidies are allowed again for onshore wind projects. Additionally, the Scottish government has a goal of having half of all energy – including electricity, transportation, and heat – to be renewably sourced by 2030. Kudos, Scotland, on your impressive achievement of generating 90% of all your electricity from cleaner sources. In Divine benevolence, may your plans succeed to further green your nation, and thus our world as well.   German university to build carbon capture facility. The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology is building the world’s first container-scale plant to test the conversion of carbon dioxide from the air into solid black carbon powder – a raw material that can be used in high-tech industry applications such as printing, electronics and construction. The three-year research project will receive €1.5 million from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The plant will operate by capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and converting it to methane with renewable hydrogen. The methane then passes through a bubble reactor to produce the carbon powder. Germany is a Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion and a Shining World Caring Leadership Award laureate. Way to go, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, on your large-scale carbon capture facility. Many thanks also, Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, for your support. May this innovative project lead to even more advancements and tools for humankind to clean up the atmosphere, in Heaven’s kindness.   New Zealand boosts housing for homeless community during pandemic. The government of New Zealand has announced another US$64 million in funding to secure motel space for homeless individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic, with the goal of finding more permanent housing solutions that will go beyond the lockdown. Already 1,100 motel units had been supplied, and the new funds will add another 500 to these while also providing extra support services for the vulnerable residents’ well-being. New Zealand is a Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion and Peace recipient, and a Shining World Leadership Awards for Earth Conservation, Earth Protection, Earth Guardian, Climate-Change Mitigation and Earth Restoration laureate. Our gratitude, New Zealand government, for your caring actions to ensure that all of your citizens are as safe as possible. We pray for God’s grace and our own virtues to be our shield during this challenging time.   Coming up, international fast food chain trials vegan meat in China. We pause to pray for Heaven to bless our leaders and governments in their work to improve the lives of their less privileged co-citizens. You’re watching Noteworthy News on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News - Inspirational News for a Happy World.   Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) successfully trials vegan protein in China. KFC recently served plant-based chicken nuggets at its Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai outlets. To sample the new product made by Cargill, headquartered in the United States, customers purchased pre-sale coupons for an order of five nuggets. Chicken-free products have also been tested at other KFC locations worldwide, with successful launches including a Beyond Meat partnership in the United States, the Original Recipe Vegan Burger release in the United Kingdom using Quorn’s fillets, and the Lightlife plant-based chicken offered in Canada. Great news, KFC. We’re glad to see your veg-friendly fare expand to evermore regions to meet the demand. As more and more customers prefer the vegan way, may our world rapidly shift to a sustainable and compassionate food system, in Celestial light.   Avian-loving couple dedicate their retirement to saving birds. Since its founding 24 years ago, 79-year-young Liz Hatton and her 81-year-young husband Chris have been running For the Birds of Indiana, a nonprofit they founded to rescue and rehabilitate injured avians out of their home in the rural city of Westfield in Indiana, United States. The Hattons, originally from the United Kingdom, are supported by a small group of students and volunteers who help feed the few dozen winged guests and clean their rooms and pens across the 5-hectare property. Once rehabilitated, the birds, ranging from owls and hawks to blue jays and vultures, are released back to the wild. Mrs. Hatton hopes to find successors to continue the labor of love. Our praises, thanks and best wishes, Liz and Chris Hatton and volunteers at For the Birds of Indiana. In Divine love, may all our feathered angel co-inhabitants receive such gentle treatment everywhere.   It’s now time to enjoy the joke of the day entitled “Sand Play.” Benji, how would you call this fish? He’s a famous fish! Hmmm… A starfish?!   And now we have a heartline from Mandana in Iran: For my Master, who is dearer to me than my own life, I am wholeheartedly ready to obey whatever You instruct. My loving Master, whenever I needed or need help, nobody is there to help me, because everybody is busy with other things. Sometimes being alone makes me so tired, and hurt that I don’t have the power to continue. In my loneliness, I spent many days crying for Your loneliness. My love (Master), I adore Your kind voice, and I absolutely understand what You say, and what You feel. My love, my heart, the beauty of my life, even in these conditions, I will continue Your path with all of my inner love, and outer strength. Thank You infinitely for planting this elevated, unconditional, and fearless love in my heart, and watering it every day. Because of this, I am more determined to continue every day, despite all the difficulties in life. My love, my heart, and my everything, until the end of my life, I will be at Your service to repay the wisdom that You bestowed on me. If You found me worthy enough, I will be an unconditional tool for You. Mandana from Iran   Devoted Mandana, Your genuine words, all the way from beautiful Iran, have touched and inspired us greatly. We know in our hearts; Master loves you very much. Here is Her response: “Virtuous Mandana, Thank you for your kind, heartfelt note and purity of soul.

Studies in the Scriptures by Charles Taze Russell: The Divine Plan of the Ages - Selection from Chapter 5, Part 2 of 2

00:12:54

Studies in the Scriptures by Charles Taze Russell: The Divine Plan of the Ages - Selection from Chapter 5, Part 2 of 2

We now continue with the fascinating analysis of the Holy Bible by Charles Taze Russell, selected from Volume 1 of his “Studies in the Scriptures” titled, “The Divine Plan of the Ages.” “This was truly a mystery never before thought of - that God intends to raise up not only a deliverer, but a deliverer composed of many members. This is the ‘high calling’ to which the consecrated believers of the Gospel age are privileged to attain. Jesus did not attempt to unfold it to the disciples while natural men, but waited until they were anointed - begotten to the new Nature. From Paul’s explanation, we know that none but ‘new creatures’ can now appreciate or understand this high calling. He says: ‘We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom [plan], which God ordained before the world unto our glory; which none of the princes [chief ones] of this world knew; ... as it is written, ‘Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him;’ but God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit.’” “But God’s plan will not always be shrouded in mystery: the dawn of the Millennial Day brings the fuller light of God to men, and ‘the knowledge of the Lord shall fill the whole earth.’ The Sun of Righteousness, which shall arise with healing in His wings, dispelling the darkness of ignorance, is the Christ in Millennial Glory - not the Head alone, but also the members of His body; for it is written: If we suffer with Him, we shall also be glorified together. ‘When Christ, Who is our life, shall appear, then shall we also appear with Him in glory;’ and ‘Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father.’” “Then the ‘mystery’ will have ended; for the world will have come to see that it was the Spirit of God in Christ, and the Spirit of Christ in us - God manifested in the flesh - which they had hitherto misunderstood.”

The Physician Who Heals With Conditions, Part 1 of 2

In a tea farming village, there lived a physician known for his miraculous healing ability; yet he had no cure for his pain. One day he met Hương, a dutiful and gentle girl who came to ask for his help. This predestined meeting, eventually led them on a spiritual path to liberate themselves from all sorrows and to find the meaning of life. We now invite you to join us for Part 1 of the drama “The Physician Who Heals With Conditions.” “Where do I go to find the simple joy Like the sunflowers seeking sunlight; like a drought yearning for a shower. Where do I go to find that peaceful realm Where happiness never fades, where the moon and stars welcome me with a loving smile Who knows, whom shall I ask? I asked the drifting evening cloud I asked the gentle breeze I asked the forest orchid Do you know, my dear? Where do I go to find that peaceful realm?” “It’s been my practice to heal anyone, but there’s a condition.” “Please go ahead.” “I have but one son... If you would accept to marry him...” “I accept.” “Father, I can’t accept this. You promised your master that you only ask people to do charity work to benefit others, but never for selfish reasons.” “At that time, I only thought of you; I didn’t think of anything else.” “But...we can’t give out such conditions, father! I regret this a lot.” “But...once I give out a condition, it’s irrevocable.” THREE MONTHS LATER... “Father... I am very grateful to you that my mother’s healthy again!” “Because of this incident, I’ve thought of a perfect proposition- that is, people must promise to be vegan.” “You must be vegan, all right!? Then they will get less sick, and you don’t have to work so hard.” “Thanks to you and brother Hân that I learned about the compassionate vegan lifestyle.”

Jesus was Vegetarian, Part 1 of 3: The Breaking of the Bread

00:16:04

Jesus was Vegetarian, Part 1 of 3: The Breaking of the Bread

“For of the fruits of the trees and the seeds of the herbs alone do I partake.” (Gospel of the Nazarenes)“You shall not take away the life of any creature for your pleasure, nor for your profit, nor yet torment it.” (Lection XLVI, 10)   In today’s program, it is our honor to present to you evidence that Jesus and the original Aramaic Christians were vegetarians, which is based on the document entitled; “Evidence That Jesus and The Original Aramaic Christians Were Vegetarians -- Uncovering A Vegetarian Jesus at the Beginning of Christianity” by Mr. James Bean. It is generally agreed by historians that Jesus and his disciples primarily spoke Aramaic, the common language of Judea in the first century AD, most likely a Galilean dialect distinguishable from that of Jerusalem. It is through profound reading of historical documents and research of many Christian scholars, that James Bean concludes undoubtedly that Jesus was raised in a vegetarian family and demonstrated the love and compassion for animals by preaching to end animal sacrifices. Thank you, James, for allowing us to use your document. All the evidence put together in James Bean’s research can be referred to in the Holy Bible. The Christian Bible consists of the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament is the original Hebrew Bible, the sacred scriptures of the Jewish faith, written at different times between 1200 and 165 BC. In the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox traditions, the Old Testament includes writings considered apocryphal by Protestants. The New Testament books were written by Christians in the first century AD, dealing with the life, the person, and the teachings of Jesus and the formation of the Christian church. It contains four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), Acts, 21 Letters, and Revelation. Before we delve into the supporting evidence that Jesus was vegetarian, let us first take a look at the lineage of Christianity and its development. The Essenes, meaning “Doers of Torah”, who wrote (or collected) the Dead Sea Scrolls, existed over 150 years before the birth of Jesus. Some believe that Jesus was an Essene and was raised on Mount Carmel. Some scholars believe that Jesus was at least influenced by them. The earliest followers of Jesus were known as Nazarenes, and perhaps later, Ebionites. The Nazarene/Ebionite movement involved mostly Jewish/Israelite followers of Saint John the Baptist and later Jesus. They were led by “James the Just”, the oldest brother of Jesus, during the years 30-80 A.D. The term “Christian” came about later. It actually was an attempt to translate the term Nazarene into Greek, meaning a “Messianist” and referred to the followers of Christ who did not acknowledge the emperor of Rome. So, the terminology is flexible; many self-designations used by the Jesus movement, had previously been used by the Essenes. The main Essene scripture is the Gospel of the Holy Twelve, also known as the Gospel of the Nazarenes. According to legend, this Gospel was collectively written by the 12 apostles immediately after Christ’s death, and it is the scripture on which all of the Biblical synoptic Gospels are based and derived. This version of the New Testament portrays Jesus as a strict vegetarian. “You shall not take away the life of any creature for your pleasure, nor for your profit, nor yet torment it.” (Lection XLVI, 10) “You shall not eat the flesh, nor drink the blood of any slaughtered creature, not yet anything which brings disorder to your health or senses.” (Lection XLVI, 12) “You shall cherish and protect the weak, and those who are oppressed, and all creatures that suffer wrong.” (Lection XLVI, 18) “Be on guard, so that your hearts do not become heavy with the eating of flesh and with the intoxication of wine and with the anxiety of the world, and that day come upon you suddenly; for as a snare it will come upon all who dwell upon the surface of the earth.” (Jesus, Luke 21:34, Evangelion Da-Mepharreshe — Old Syriac-Aramaic Manuscript of the New Testament Gospels) “Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them.” (1 Corinthians 6:13) The Biblical basis for vegetarianism is shown in Genesis, the early chapters of the Hebrew Bible. It shows that vegetarianism is consistent with the spirit of early Christianity, which is to advocate kindness, mercy, non-violence and to love all of God's creation. Here are some of the quotes from the Old Testament. For of the fruits of the trees and the seeds of the herbs alone do I partake. (Gospel of the Nazarenes) And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the 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 every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. (Genesis 1:29-30) But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. (Genesis 9:4) Thou shalt not kill. (Exodus 20:13) Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith. (Proverbs: 15:17) Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh. (Proverbs 23:20) To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats… And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil. (Isaiah 1:11, 15-16) Attentive viewers, we will be right back after this meaningful message. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television. Welcome back, loving viewers. In the New Testament, the stories of the feeding of the multitudes have generated the most discussion. When Jesus refers back to His feeding of the multitudes in Matthew 16:9, he says, “Do you not yet perceive? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you gathered?” He doesn’t mention fish. Jesus: “May I share thy bread. I am the bread of life. He that cometh to me shall never hunger. And he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” Given the way Jesus spoke in Matthew 16:9–10, the insertion of fish becomes obvious. As it now stands, in the New Testament Gospels references to “bread” are frequent but “fish” are only referred to on a couple occasions. This strongly suggests that the original tradition was about distribution of bread, not bread and fish. Luke recorded that Jesus’ family made annual pilgrimages to Jerusalem for the feast of Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread. In fact, the Gospel of Ebionites clearly indicates that Jesus rejected the Passover meal by saying: “I have no desire to eat the flesh of this Paschal Lamb with you.” Jesus said: “I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.” Furthermore, Jesus condemned animal sacrifice. The Ebionite or Hebrew Gospel quotes Jesus as saying, “I have come to abolish the sacrifices, and if you cease not from sacrificing, my wrath will not cease from you.” (Panarion 30.16.5) Another clear proof that Jesus did not want animal offerings but mercy is found both in Matthew 9:13 and John 2:13-17. “And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.” (John 2:13-17) “and doves and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So, he made a whip out of cords and drove all from the Temple, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said: ‘Get out of here.’” (John 2:13–16) One of the earliest Ebionite Christian documents, the Clementine Homilies, was written in the second century based on the teachings of Saint Peter. Homily XII states: "The unnatural eating of flesh meats is as polluting as the heathen worship of devils, with its sacrifices and its impure feasts, through participation in it a man becomes a fellow eater with devils". Thus, all three groups, Essenes, Nazarenes, and Ebionites, were vegetarian, which was highly likely the required practice in Early Christianity.

Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra: Contemplating the Karmic Conditions of Beings, Part 1 of 6, Aug. 09, 2015

00:30:57

Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra: Contemplating the Karmic Conditions of Beings, Part 1 of 6, Aug. 09, 2015

You already have the main things. The main precious substance is in you already. You got it. You got the initiation, you got the connection with Heaven already. Everything else is secondary.   It's good. You've become nuns. No need to wear these clothes. I'm not used to it anymore. I am tired, so I wear something, to make me awake a little bit. It helps, you know? It helps. You like this kind of dress? (Yes, Master!) (Very much.) No problem! How many people like it? (Everybody.) Oh, no, no, no, really. (We do, Master!) I did not like it. I just wear it because I'm supposed to wear this today. I'm supposed to, that's all. The secret is like that - they chose the dress for me. If there is another better, maybe they would have chosen it for me. I mean, the Goddess of Dressing. So it's quicker for me. I don't have to stay there and, "eenie, meenie, miney, moe, this for one, this for you." So I said, "Please help me. It's too many dresses here, pick one." And they said, "This one." "OK, OK. Thank you very much. Good, good. Good, very good, very good!" All right. This is still live again, right? (Yes.) OK. So be careful what you say, all right? Everybody hears it. The whole world is listening. I thought I escaped Supreme Master Television, and now I'm sitting here, live again! At least that means I am alive.   Yesterday, one of your sisters said that if you go to South Africa from Europe, then you don't have to vaccinate your dog. Is she still there? Yeah, yeah, yeah. She said that, right? Don't believe it. It's not like that. (Aww!) It's not true! It's like you can take your dog, and then go now. No, it's not like that! You have to apply and wait for permission, and oh! Oh! Ah… (Oh!) So, no wonder. So we put South Africa on hold. Don't just run there with your dog and blame me. I mean, everybody gives you different information. It's not always correct. That's why I told her to check on the internet, and there it is. It's not like that. It's complicated. It's not like that. It's not that easy. So forget South Africa for now. Don't think about it. The reason I stay around Europe is because it's easier. You don't have to go through checkpoints anymore. And you can take your dogs anywhere as long as you drive. And Europe is not that big. Drive around and with my dogs. Everything is better like that.     We finished this already, right? We have another story for fun. You like? (Yes, Master.) Yes or no? I don't hear anything. (Yes!) Yes? (Yes!) I am kidding. I heard. I am not deaf! Enough! How can I not hear you? Even if you don't speak, you are very loud people. I hear you day and night, 24/7. Not just 7-Eleven, but 24/7. I check out how big it is before we start. It is good when you have just a short story or short chapter, and then go to the next. Maybe this is kind of short, maybe. There were two chapters next to each other. One is knowing the conditions of karma. And the next one is knowing the retribution. So talk about karma first or the retribution? (Karma.) Karma. One by one, huh? Yeah. And if we have to go, then we read the rest, maybe another 10 years or something afterwards. You really like to hear Buddhist sutras? (Yes, Master.) I have a lot more. This is only the Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra. (Wow.) And it's this much. There are Medicine Buddha, Amitabha Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, a lot. He Himself is a lot, a lot, a lot because He lived here before. And nobody obstructed Him while He was speaking. He went from one country to another, free like a bird, and saying whatever He liked. No king ever came and made trouble for Him. No mayor came and threatened to kick Him out, or His disciples. You already have the main things. The main precious substance is in you already. You got it. You got the initiation, you got the connection with Heaven already. Everything else is secondary.   Contemplating the Karmic Conditions of Beings. Because you're looking at me, so I'm busy looking at you. I forget everything. Yeah, all day I am thinking of everything but work, anything but work. Then, I forgot my dog behind. He's trailing behind me. He wants to come. We have to put him nearby. Because if he's alone there, I will not know what happened to him. I don't care if the house is gone, but my dog cannot be gone. So we put him nearby. It's safer. Not like he has to stay in my hut and take care of the hut. No. He has to come here whenever I'm here - nearby, in the lower level of the house. It's better. Nearer to us, no? Anything happens, we know. I protect my dog. The other three dogs stay there all the time, but the big dog only comes when I am here. Only yesterday, it was kind of … I don't remember what was happening. It was raining or something? Then I left him behind, but later the attendant brought him here also. It's all this, all the time. So, too much trouble for the dog, then, OK. It just takes some time to look for another place. Europe is small but not that small. There are big lands somewhere. Just that we have to find some beautiful place.   All right. "Contemplating the Karmic Conditions of Beings." "At that time, the Buddha's mother, Lady Maya …" Not mean the maya, the maya, maya, but her name, her name is Maya. What does it mean, Maya in Hindu? M-A-Y-A. (Y-A) Yeah. None? No meaning, nothing? (It means money.)  (Wealth, money.)  Wealth and money. Oh, good, good! No wonder she's a queen. Who can be more wealthy? Who can have more money, right? Wow, maybe we all change our name. Yeah, look at all the big people. They have a name similar to money. All of you men change to Bill, Bill. If you're not sure, you just say, "Bill Bill Bill." The first name Bill, the middle name Bill, the last family name Bill. That is so sure, so sure, so sure. Yeah, it's funny. OK, OK, enough of that. Otherwise they think we are trying to imitate them, and be in concurrence or something.   "At that time, the Buddha's mother, Lady Maya, Queen Maya, placed her palms together respectfully and asked Earth Store Bodhisattva, 'Great Sage, could You tell us about the different kinds of karma that beings of Jambudvipa create and the resulting retribution that they undergo?'" This means from this world, from the Earth. That's a name for this planet. They also call it Saha or Samsara. And we call it Earth, a Planet Blue. This is the same name. These two, you must remember they are all in the Heaven now. In the Second Heaven, Second Level of consciousness which is bordering the Third Level. Almost at the Third Level, so you can also say it's the Third Level. "So the Earth Store Bodhisattva replied, 'There are millions of worlds and lands that may or may not have women, may or may not have hells, may or may not have Buddhadharma,'" means the teaching of the Truth of the Enlightened Ones. And so on and so forth. "'To having or not having (Inner Heavenly) Sound Hearers…'" You know, Quan Yin. Hearer or contemplating is the same. (Inner Heavenly) Sound Contemplator, or Sound Hearer, or Sound Meditators, same. Sound, the inner (Heavenly) Sound. Because if the Buddha meant sound hearing from the outside, musical and all that, then he wouldn't have forbidden the people who do the retreat with monks, who receive the Eight Ways of Purification, not to go out dancing, not to listen to music. Do you understand? (Yes.) I just make it clear to you that this is really the inner (Heavenly) Sound that Buddha means. Because in the Buddha's time also, the way of life for the monks and nuns, they should not listen to music. They should not go and watch theater. Maybe occasionally, on special occasions when the Buddha is there, and they just make a party, a little music for Him. But they don't specifically go out and buy music, or go to watch music like all of us, or go out to watch, like, pop singing and all that stuff. So this is clearly the inner (Heavenly) Sound. Proof enough? (Yes.) Believe me now? (Yes.) (Always.) "'… May or may not have (Inner Heavenly) Sound Hearers or Pratyekabuddhas. Since the worlds differ, the retributions in the hells also differ.' Lady Maya spoke again to the Bodhisattva, 'Could You please tell us about the offenses done by those in Jambudvipa that result in retributions in the evil destinies?' Earth Store replied …" So she specified just for this world because so many worlds differ, and she's from the Earth. She just passed away and went to Heaven. So of course she was more interested in the world. And she asked that for the sake of earthlings, since this was where her home was. And her children, and grandchildren, and her husband, etc., were still there. Of course. And you ask for your own country's sake, right? Because so many countless worlds and countless planets, the queen could not sit there forever and ask the Bodhisattva to report to her all that. And also not interesting for us. She asked because she's from here. Thanks to her that we have this. We thank you, Mother of Buddha. OK. "Earth Store replied, 'Worthy Mother, please listen as I speak briefly about that.' The Buddha's mother answered, 'Great Sage, please tell us. We listen.' Then Earth Store Bodhisattva said to the Worthy Mother, 'Retributions that result from offenses done in Jambudvipa are described like this: Beings who are not filial to their parents, even to the extent of harming or killing them, will fall into the Uninterrupted Hell where for billions of eons they will seek escape, but in vain.'" Means they can never get out of there. Uninterrupted Hell doesn't mean that the punishments are uninterrupted, but meaning it's forever, it goes on forever. Meaning it never stops, that kind of hell, non-stop. Not just interrupted, like have a break or something, but goes on forever. Another sin; that is for parents… If you are not filial to your parents, this is also good that you know. In case you still have parents, be respectful, be kind, be protective. Be filial to them. That was the first sin.

In today’s news, China supports food security in South Sudan, humanitarian organizations help enhance education in Tajikistan, green energy production increasing in Germany, scientists convert CO2 into useful products, British veteran walks to raise money for healthcare workers, vegan meat company secures funding for expansion in United States, and larger home opened for rescued wildlife in Laos.   China donates food aid to South Sudan. China has provided nearly 1,000 metric tons of rice to South Sudan to assist the nation through a food shortage principally due to devastating floods last year and a recent plague of desert locusts that have decimated crops. As the COVID-19 virus has started to spread, China has also been assisting the east African nation in dealing with it. Furthermore, Chinese Ambassador to South Sudan, His Excellency Hua Ning, has pledged China’s ongoing support to help the country achieve lasting peace and stability. China is a Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Wildlife-Protection, Wise Governance, and Compassionate Protection laureate. We laud your steadfast commitment, China, to the amiable people of South Sudan. In Heaven’s benevolence, may South Sudan be blessed with adequate food, water, comfort and harmony.   Global humanitarian organizations launch educational program for youth in Tajikistan. United Arab Emirates-based Dubai Cares has initiated the US$1.5 million Making Youth Future Ready: Introducing New Vocational Educational Skills Training (INVEST) program in Tajikistan. It will be put into effect in collaboration with United States-based Mercy Corps to help improve employability for disadvantaged young people. The three-year initiative, to be implemented throughout Khatlon Province and the Districts of Republican Subordination, will provide life and work readiness skills, vocational training, and business growth support for 7,800 children and young adults. Additionally, 231 teachers, as well as an estimated 45,000 community members, are also expected to benefit from the endeavor. Our warm-hearted appreciation, Dubai Cares and Mercy Corps. May the bright youth of Tajikistan continue to flourish, in a world of blessings and loving guidance of Allah.   Up next, green energy production increasing in Germany. We pause for a moment to thank the locomotive engineers for driving trains safely between destinations, adjusting for sensitive cargo and weather conditions. We’ll be right back, with more admirable news on Supreme Master Television.   Hallo, Earth-loving friends, it’s Harry the Hamadryas Baboon, and I’m a fashionable vegan! Here is a tip to stretch your lower body, working the hamstrings, calves and hip flexors. First, make sure you are standing with your feet hip-width away from each other. Then move your left leg back in a lunge position and set both of your hands on each side of your right foot on the ground, approximately shoulder-width apart. Lower your hips enough to feel a stretch in the anterior aspects of your left hip and leg. Hold this position for 30 seconds. Then straighten your front leg by gradually extending it, leaving your hands placed on the ground. Stay in this position for 30 seconds. Finally, repeat these steps on the other side. Thank you for tuning in. Love you for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. And now, the worldwide weather.   Germany generates over half of its power from renewables. In the first quarter of 2020, Germany produced nearly 52% of its electricity from renewable sources, generating 77 billion kilowatt-hours mainly from wind and solar power. This is a rise of 7% in sustainable energy usage compared to the same period in 2019. The gains were due to multiple factors, including increased renewable infrastructure, record winds in February and lots of sun in March. By 2030, Germany plans to generate 65% of all its power from green sources as the nation heads towards full carbon neutrality under the European Union’s Green Deal to achieve zero net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050. The government of Germany is a Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion laureate and a Shining World Caring Leadership Award laureate. Way to go, Germany, on your ongoing progression towards becoming a fully carbon-neutral nation. May the people of your benevolent country be blessed with much wisdom as they shift their lives towards complete planet-friendly living.   Researchers develop bioreactor to convert carbon dioxide. Professor Peidong Yang and his team of scientists from the University of California, Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) in the United States have developed a biohybrid system comprised of nanowires and bacteria that can convert carbon dioxide and water into oxygen and organic molecules. The reactor could provide oxygen to outer-space travelers, while also supplying the ingredients for organic compounds that could be used to manufacture medicine, fuels and more. The efficiency of the device is 3.6%, which is almost as high as the most efficient plant on earth to convert CO2 to sugar: the sugar cane. Fantastic news, Professor Peidong Yang and researchers from the University of California, Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, for your biohybrid system that could make space travel a reality. May your advancements help remind people to cherish our beautiful planet where oxygen and all materials we require are lovingly provided, in God’s grace.   British centenarian raises funds for health service. Captain Tom Moore, who turned 100-years-young on April 30 of this year, has raised over £32 million for the National Health Service (NHS) in the United Kingdom to help during the COVID-19 pandemic. Captain Moore started a fundraising page on JustGiving.com and stated he would walk 100 laps around his garden before his 100th birthday. He initially hoped to raise £1,000 but the figure was far exceeded due to the enormous amount of support from the public. This warm response inspired the kind gentleman to continue with another total of 100 laps. More than 1.5 million people contributed to his cause, with the proceeds donated to NHS Charities Together. Our loving appreciation, Captain Tom Moore. May you continue your noble deeds in good health as the generous people of the United Kingdom stand together in the strength of the Providence, as we enter a bright vegan era. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Warmly present the Shining World Compassion Award to Captain Tom Moore, with lots of love and gratitude. May God bless you abundantly for your generous spirit and kind heart.”   Coming up, vegan meat company secures funding for expansion in United States. We take a moment to be grateful to the designers and makers of our comfortable meditation cushions. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for more soothing news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Enhancing News for a Beautiful World.   Seattle, United States vegan meat start-up raises funds to increase production. Rebellyous Foods, which already produces and sells plant-based chicken nuggets, has raised US$6 million to go towards speeding up their development of new machinery and vegan products as well as increase their employee numbers. The novel equipment will also be replicable in order to help other plant-based meat companies grow. In response to COVID-19, Rebellyous Foods’ Board member, Ela Madej, noted in a statement, “We need a pandemic-proof food system that can meet the nutritional needs of our growing human family.” Congratulations and good luck, Rebellyous Foods. With your talent and vision, may a future of abundance and unity soon be realized for all beings, in Heaven’s oneness.   Mega reserve for rescued animals opens in Laos. Australia-based animal charity, Free the Bears, recently opened a large reserve on a hilltop at their Luang Prabang Wildlife Sanctuary to shelter over 20 animal species saved from illegal wildlife trade. The rescued animals include birds, civets, leopards, macaques, moon bears, pangolins, red pandas and tortoises. After three years of expansion, the new reserve is over 25 times larger than their original shelter and features a wildlife hospital, a cub nursery, a quarantine house and a pangolarium. Furthermore, the 77 moon bears saved by the nonprofit now have special houses and a sizeable enclosure containing a lake to swim in. By 2021, the project will be completed with the addition of more houses for rescued bears. The charity group seeks to end bear bile farming in the country by 2022 with the government’s support. Our heartfelt thankfulness, Laos and Free the Bears. May we always protect our animal brethren, as we herald an era of kindness, in Buddha’s compassion. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Free the Bears, and US$10,000 in loving support of your noble and caring work, with all love and gratitude, in Divine grace. May you, your team and the precious animals you safeguard be always blessed and shielded by the Heavens.”   Let’s enjoy a laugh with the joke of the day entitled, “Moved by a Book.” Honey, what are you doing? I’m reading a book. Then why are you crying? The ending of the book is very sad. What book is that? My bank book!   And now we have a heartline from Yu Mai-Mai in China: I am deeply grateful to all the Supreme Master TV team for your dedication. The positive energy you have brought to the world has greatly and rapidly changed the whole world and awakened the consciousness of human beings. I have been watching Supreme Master TV every day, and like very much the Surangama Sutra explained by Master in Between Master and Disciples. I knew nothing about the sutra before, and through the explanation of Master Ching Hai, I have understood the importance of keeping the precepts on the path of spiritual practice and being alert to all kinds of traps. Under Supreme Master Ching Hai’s loving care, my family is full of happiness and joy! My son and daughter-in-law have happily adopted the healthy vegan diet together with our granddaughter. My husband is now retired and also Your disciple. My mother was initiated by You as early as in 1997. She has passed away now. I believe that Master has taken her to Heaven. I adopted my baby dog when she was four months old. Now she is 10 years old and her name is Happy. She has always been vegan, very loving, and energetic like a young dog. When Master comes out to meet fellow practitioners on Supreme Master TV, Happy goes into samadhi at home. So cute! Master Ching Hai, I am so grateful to You! I will endeavor to be Your best disciple, a good citizen of the country, a good wife, mother, and grandmother at home. On behalf of my family, I wish You the best of health and that Your noble ideals will come true very soon. Wish our world will unite in harmony soon. Yu Mai-Mai from China   Gracious Yu Mai-Mai, Thank you for sharing your earnest words of appreciation for our Beloved Master and Supreme Master Television’s programming. It is our fortune that She took many hours to thoroughly explain the Surangama Sutra and did so in such a very clear and expressive manner. Like yourself, we are guided by Master’s wisdom and do our very best to follow Her example and lead the vegan lifestyle that nourishes and nurtures humanity, elevates our world, and fosters a harmonious existence for all beings. Peace and Heaven’s Love to you and your bright co-citizens of China, Supreme Master TV team P.S. Master said: “Eager Yu Mai-Mai, my thanks for your encouraging well-wishes. Please continue to diligently practice your spiritual meditation so that you may be a positive, shining role model of kindness and piety for others to follow. Buddha’s abundant blessings to you, your loved ones and courageous China.”   We welcome your heartlines and stories.

Studies in the Scriptures by Charles Taze Russell: The Divine Plan of the Ages - Selection from Chapter 5, Part 1 of 2

Studies in the Scriptures by Charles Taze Russell: The Divine Plan of the Ages - Selection from Chapter 5, Part 1 of 2

He is noted for his analytical interpretations of the Holy Bible and for dedicating his life and resources to the preaching of the future establishment of a Golden Age on Earth. According to Mr. Russell’s research of the Holy Bible, God’s Kingdom would rule the Earth through Christ. Among the most well-known of his works is the seven-volume series, “Studies in the Scriptures.” Today, we will read an excerpt from Volume 1 of Charles Taze Russell’s “Studies in the Scriptures” titled, “The Divine Plan of the Ages.” “Paul declares that this mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations now made manifest to His saints, is ‘CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY.’ This is the great mystery of God which has been hidden from all previous ages, and is still hidden from all except a special class - the saints, or consecrated believers. But what is meant by ‘Christ in you?’ We have learned that Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit, and thus we recognize Him to be the Christ - the Anointed - for the word Christ signifies anointed.” “And, dearly beloved, many blows and much polishing must we endure - much transforming must we undergo, and much conforming to His example, under the direction of the great Master-builder; and in order to have the ability and ideality of the Builder displayed in us, we will need to see that we have no cross-grained will of our own to oppose or thwart the accomplishment of His will in us; we must be very childlike and humble – ‘clothed with humility; for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.’ Let us humble ourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt us in due time, as He has exalted our Head and Forerunner.”

Bermuda - A Happy Place to Be

Bermuda - A Happy Place to Be

In today’s show, we will explore the history, culture, and natural wonders of Bermuda. Located in the North Atlantic off the east coast of North America, Bermuda is the oldest British colony. The water at beaches in Bermuda is always crystal-clear year round, making it a perfect relaxing destination for holiday vacations. Bermuda has a population of about 63,000 people, inheriting colorful cultures from descendants of mainly Native Americans, Africans, and Europeans, with a small percentage of Asians. Bermudians have a very distinct fashion sense, and the Bermuda shorts are renowned around the world. The people of Bermuda highly value social etiquette and are known for their good manners. The spirit of kindness and politeness is most exemplified by Mr. Johnny Barnes, a beloved figure in Bermuda. Mr. Barnes was a devout Christian. He credited the Lord Jesus Christ’s teachings on brotherly love as his inspiration. “Life is sweet, life is beautiful. No matter what happens in life, it is always sweet to be alive. Enjoy the sunshine, the flowers, the birds - they're happy.” Bermudians love nature and are avid wildlife conservationists. It is the biodiversity of Bermuda that makes it a truly special place. From old English ceremonies, to art festivals, concerts, and holidays, Bermudians embrace any chance to celebrate. In a culture of festivities, dancing and music is an essential part of everyday life. Bermuda music is a contributing factor to the overall Caribbean music genre. The Gombey dance is a symbol of Bermudan culture. One of the most notable events in Bermuda is the Gombey Festival, a celebration of African-Bermudan culture that usually takes place in September or October. Weekly events known as Harbor Nights are also held in Hamilton to showcase local musicians and performers. Every Wednesday night on Front Street, from May to October, outdoor arts and crafts are displayed. As if a testament to the colorful culture of Bermuda and its happy people, the majority of the artworks are bright water-color paintings inspired by the island’s vibrant hues of life.

Shining World Kindness Award Recipient: Sahouli Cheikh Faizal – A Compassionate Youngster

Shining World Kindness Award Recipient: Sahouli Cheikh Faizal – A Compassionate Youngster

Today, we travel to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, well known for its shining skyscrapers, natural attractions and culinary delights, to meet an adorable 4-year-old humanitarian named Cheikh Faizal. In a spontaneous clip his father recorded of Cheikh, the young child’s innocent kindness melted hearts on social media. His small acts of gentle kindness moved people in a profound way, reminding everyone of the humanity we are born with. Cheikh’s father, Sahouli Bouamama, was understandably very proud of his son’s compassion. “My son saw the young boy without shoes and made the decision himself that he wanted to help him. He showed his love for everyone there, even though they are homeless. He then went home without his shoes. Hopefully, everybody in the world will see this positive message and we can make life better for every human being. There are many homeless people, but if everybody makes a small gesture of kindness we can improve their lives.” Cheikh has also done many other thoughtful things to help his community. He collected garbage at a beach and left a very cute message asking people to take care of the beach. Recently, he distributed toys and other gifts to children living in less-advantaged rural areas. Upon hearing the news of his pure hearted compassion, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai offered the Shining World Kindness Award to the youngster “plus US$3,000 in case more socks and shoes are needed for others, in Allah’s Grace. May Heavens reward you and your good family richly. Love you.” And then, after knowing about his other altruistic deeds, Supreme Master Ching Hai arranged “to send a further US$10,000 to Sahouli Cheikh Faizal to support his noble work. With all love, big cheers and benevolent best wishes in Allah's merciful grace.” They showed deep gratitude to our Beloved Supreme Master, expressed their love towards all animals and also shared their thoughts about the noble vegan lifestyle. “A vegan lifestyle is very, very good. It will help human beings and also it will help animals a lot. And for COVID-19, it will help either to reduce or stop COVID-19. If everyone does the vegan lifestyle, maybe this COVID-19 will not even exist at all. Be vegan; save all animal life. Thank You, Master.”

In today’s news, France contributes food aid to South Sudan, access to affordable housing in India receives a boost, Philippines to utilize offshore wind technology, solar power car cover developed in France, leading vegan meat company feeds medical workers in United States during pandemic, United Kingdom public sector catering operators vow to reduce meat, and dugong population increases in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.   France supports nutrition in South Sudan. The French government contributed €500,000 to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), which will be used to provide 29,000 people, including expectant and nursing mothers as well as vulnerable youngsters in Jonglei and Upper Nile areas, with more than 170 metric tons of special nutritious products. Matthew Hollingworth, WFP’s Country Director in South Sudan, expressed his appreciation for the urgently needed donation, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since 2014, France has contributed US$1.3 million to WFP’s work in South Sudan. Our heartfelt gratitude, France, for your generosity and care for our South Sudanese sisters and brothers. May the kind people of South Sudan soon see bright tomorrows in the Divine’s uplifting grace.   Asian Development Bank (ADB) promotes housing for underserved people in India. The ADB has agreed to lend up to US$60 million to Indian affordable housing lender, Aavas Financiers Ltd, to enhance the availability of housing finance for lower-income individuals in the country, especially women as primary or co-borrowers. This initiative should increase property ownership for women in low-income communities, who have been traditionally underserved, as it opens up opportunities for reasonably priced housing. Bravo, Asian Development Bank and Aavas Financiers Ltd, for this wise venture. With such important support to vulnerable women and families, may India grow in prosperity and happiness for the benefit of all citizens, in Celestial radiance.   Up next, Philippines to utilize offshore wind technology. Let’s take a moment to thank the education ministers of nations who shape and improve the education system of their countries at all levels. We will return with more rewarding news after these messages here on Supreme Master Television.   Hi, generous viewers! I’m Maru the Markhor, and I live on a plant-based diet. Today I have an eco-tip for you. Most receipts cannot be recycled, because they are BPA-coated, a chemical that has been classified by the European Union as toxic for human reproduction and harmful to the environment. Hence, for health and environmental protection, start using electronic receipts today! You can request an e-receipt to be emailed to you at the time of in-store purchases. In addition, e-receipts are easier to store on your computer and keep track of the product warranty because paper receipts can be easily lost. Thank you for tuning in, and love you a lot for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! Now, for the weather around the globe.   The Philippines welcomes its first offshore wind projects. The Philippines’ Department of Energy awarded Triconti Windkraft Group, a Filipino-Swiss-German partnership, a 1.2 gigawatts wind energy contract to build two wind facilities in offshore locations of the Northern and Central Philippines. The Aparri Bay Offshore Wind Project will be situated off the coast of Cagayan Province, occupying over 14,000 hectares and producing electricity at 500-600 megawatts capacity, while the 600-megawatt Guimaras Strait nearshore project between Panay and Negros islands will cover 12,700 hectares of coastal area. The total output will help the nation increase its renewable energy sector, and provide clean and affordable electricity to local residents. Thank you, Triconti Windkraft Group and the Philippine government, for your swift movement to renewable energy. May God bless our world with more green solutions.   Solar panel car cover developed to recharge electric vehicles. French industrial coating and printing company, Armor, has created a product called ASCA, which uses organic polymers that are printed on flexible films to create thin, light and supple solar panels. The material can also be adhered to the body of the car, as it is durable and weighs only 450 grams per square meter. An average size cover of five square meters can provide enough charge in eight hours of sunlight to give an extra up to 15 kilometers of range per day. What a clever design, Armor! May your thin-film solar panels soon be incorporated into all electric vehicles as we quickly implement the concepts of a circular economy to save and reuse our resources, in Heaven’s loving patience.   Beyond Meat donates to hospital workers and people in need during pandemic. Vegan food company Beyond Meat from the United States donated one million vegan burgers to food banks, frontline workers and organizations in need. The burgers were distributed by the company’s staff, friends and ambassadors such as professional basketball star and vegan, Kyrie Irving, who gave 200,000 of the burgers to Food Bank for New York City. Also, vegan comedian Kevin Hart sent the healthful Beyond Burger to hospital staff at Northridge Hospital Medical Center in Southern California. Vegan seafood brand, Sophie’s Kitchen, also contributed US$210,000 worth of fish-free tuna to San Francisco Bay Area food banks. And Miyoko’s Creamery has been serving 1,500 to 2,000 vegan grilled cheese sandwiches each week to people who work in Northern California hospitals. Many thanks, Beyond Meat, Sophie’s Kitchen, Miyoko’s Creamery and all involved. In Divine insight, may your delectable and nutritious food help to awaken the realization in people of the vegan solution for our planet.   Coming up, United Kingdom public sector catering operators commit to meat reduction. We’ll pause now to appreciate the traditional art of textile making from the Li ethnic group of Hainan Province, China, a UNESCO-inscribed Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Supreme Master Television will return in just a moment with more exceptional news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News - Giving News for a Selfless World.   Caterers in the United Kingdom pledge to reduce meat served. UK public sector food caterers, who serve billions of meals per year to one-quarter of the nation’s population, will reduce meat by 20%, or nine million kilograms. While the effects of the change will reach their customers in schools, hospitals, universities, care homes and more, the industry also seeks to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as the nation moves towards achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. An equivalent of 16 million chickens or 45,000 cows per year are expected to be saved by the new pledge. Our salute, United Kingdom caterers, for your high thinking decision to reduce the amount of meat used in your meals. May your actions have profound effects on the eating habits of people all over the world as all nations move to completely eliminate meat from the diet of their cherished citizens, in Heaven’s mercy.   Dugong population increases in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. According to a study by Shining World Leadership Award for Environmental Protection laureate, the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi (EAD), the survival rate of dugongs has significantly increased since a ban on fishing nets was implemented in December 2018. Abu Dhabi waters are home to around 3,000 dugongs, the world’s second-largest population of the gentle herbivores. Seeing that they were becoming increasingly vulnerable to fishing, the EAD in coordination with the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment introduced the ban to help protect the dugongs and other endangered marine species. Our gratitude, Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi and UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment. May our world continue this trend to protect and nurture each and every one of our precious animal co-inhabitants for a vegan future, in the abounding love of Allah.   Time now to enjoy the joke of the day entitled, “An Advantage.”   Did you know that there is a new car wash opening up in your neighborhood? How convenient! I can walk to it!   Thank you for your presence on Noteworthy News. May the light of the Providence shine on you always.   And now we have a heartline from Andrea MacGregor in New Zealand: Dear Supreme Master Ching Hai and all the Supreme Master TV team around the world, I would like to give you all the biggest thanks ever for saving my son and me. Our lives are like living in Heaven now after spending so many years in a nightmare. My son is 12 now and has autism. For 11 years, he had the most incredible meltdowns which could go on for hours. School was horrendous for both him and I. And then the magic that is Supreme Master TV came along!! At the beginning of the year, I started playing Supreme Master TV in his room 24/7 and gave him a double dose next to his head while he slept. Since then, he has been the angel I always knew he was. Not one meltdown and not even slightly angry!! He has gone from all 1’s for his behavior to all 5’s (top score) and from all 1’s for his schoolwork to 8, 9, and even 10’s (top score) in one year. We are so immensely grateful to Supreme Master Ching Hai and all the Supreme Master TV team for creating this magic and the immense blessings that come from this station. My son now has a future, and I know that it is all because of You; Thanks to You. I will be forever grateful and love You Supreme Master Ching Hai more than I ever thought possible. May this station continue to bless the world for many years to come. With the biggest thanks and love,   Andrea MacGregor New Zealand   Loving Andrea, Thank you for your heartline. We are so glad that life is now like Heaven after so many challenging years. It is truly Master’s immense grace that Supreme Master Television can bring such blessings into our lives. We can never thank Supreme Master Ching Hai enough for all that She has done for us across the globe. May your beautiful son continue to shine and experience God’s eternal love and light. Wishing the paradise island nation of New Zealand be ever more lovely, Supreme Master TV team   P.S. Master has a reply for you: “Peaceful Andrea, happy to know of this positive and fortunate transition in your lives. May your precious son always be comforted by divine, loving Celestial melodies.

Selections from Jagatguru Adi Shankaracharya’s Hymns – "Shivananda Lahari," Part 2 of 2

00:15:40

Selections from Jagatguru Adi Shankaracharya’s Hymns – "Shivananda Lahari," Part 2 of 2

“So take it under your control, And show mercy on this innocent one. Perform of I your worship, And you appear before me soon, And you become granter all pleasures to me, Oh Lord, who is everywhere. But if you grant the position of creator, Or the position of Lord Vishnu instead, As a reward for my worship, Then I would have to become a bird and fly in the sky, Or become an animal and dig deep in the earth, To see you again my Lord. How can I bear this sorrow of not seeing you, Oh Lord Sankara, who is everywhere. When would I live on Mount Kailash, Along with your attendants, In the stone studded golden mansion of yours, Oh God, who is the giver of happiness With hands raised and clasped, In deference to you, Oh Lord, who is everywhere, Oh Lord, who is with Goddess, Oh God, who is the master, Oh God, who is above all, Oh God, who is good, And chant with pleasure. ‘Oh God, save me,’ And spend the time, As if the creator’s kalpa is a second. When will I see thine holy pair of feet, Oh king of the mountains, And be able to hold it, carry it on the head, eyes and chest, Embrace it, smell the scent of lotus flowers from it, And attain rapturous ecstasy, Which even Brahma and others do not get.” “I offer devotions to thine lotus-like feet, I meditate on thee who is the greatest, I seek thy refuge, Oh my Lord, And by my words I beg from you, Oh Vibhu, To bless me with the merciful divine sight, Which is always sought by the Gods. Oh teacher of the universe, Teach me the way of happy living.” “Oh God, who wears the young crescent, Oh God of all beings, Oh God, who is the Lord of us all, And Oh God, who is teacher of all the Three Worlds, If only I had all these, I would have ability to serve you in a better way.”

Vegan Heroes - Father’s Day Celebration, Part 1 of 6

On June 16, 2019, the third Sunday of June, our Association members held a grand celebration for International Father’s Day, thanking all the fathers in the world in human and non-human forms. Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai graciously attended this event at the New Land Ashram in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. We will now present to you this uplifting celebration in our series of programs entitled “Vegan Heroes - Father’s Day Celebration.” Let’s start with Part 1. As the head of the family, father is the great tree protecting us from tough storms. Gratitude to father for his selfless love and sacrifice, we wish all fathers a Happy Father’s Day! Taoyuan Center, Formosa (Taiwan), is going to present the song “Devotion.” “The long road is devoted to the place far away, the rose is devoted to love. What can I devote to you, my love? The white clouds are devoted to the meadow, the rivers are devoted to the ocean. What can I devote to you, my friend? The white doves are devoted to the blue sky, the starlight is devoted to the long night. What can I devote to you, my child? The rain is devoted to the earth, the time is devoted to the seasons. What can I devote to you, my mom and dad?” Ladies and gentlemen, there are so many songs in this world, but those about fathers always bring the most wonderful and elevated emotion. Let us merge into the ocean wave of fatherly love through the song entitled “A Song for Beloved Father” performed by the fellow initiates from Âu Lạc. “Your hands once rocked my cradle with a lullaby. Your hands once helped me take my first steps. I can never forget the days of my childhood with you. Those wonderful dreams always have your images. I fear the day when you’re no longer in life. I fear the day when I no longer see your beloved face. I pray for time, I pray for time to drift slowly, so that I may always have you in life. The years passed swiftly. Many changes in the currents of life. Looking at my beloved father, now your hair has grayed. For those years you have raised me, many difficult sacrifices, with hope in your life, to see me live happily, to grow up as a good person. From the depth of my heart, I’m thankful for my life.”

Chef’s Choice Foods - The Vegan Food Company in Thailand, Part 1 of 2

Chef’s Choice Foods - The Vegan Food Company in Thailand, Part 1 of 2

As the world becomes vegan, more and more companies are participating in this noble movement. A myriad of new products is being created each day, helping to make the transition to the compassionate lifestyle much easier. One such company is Chef’s Choice Foods. Chef’s Choice Foods was the first company to introduce to the world the famous Thai coconut milk, by canning it. It eventually became a world leader in creating some of the most amazing dairy-free products, enabling people to bring vegan cuisine to the next level, from savory to sweets. Now they produce around 120 vegan products, which are exported to more than 60 countries. The journey of this company traces back to when merchants sold their coconuts on the Chao Praya River. The Osonphasop family played a big role in bringing this amazing Thai taste to the world, in a canned form. Sonya and Marisa Osonphasop, who are also the daughters of Chusak Osonphasop, the former Managing Director of Chef’s Choice Foods, will tell us more about the company and their wonderful products. “In 1978, we sent out the first lot of canned coconut milk from Thailand. We were the first company in Thailand. After that, we started to develop the products further and had canned fruits and vegetables and sauces, all the Thai sauces and pastes and condiments. In 1996, Dad heard about Supreme Master Ching Hai and he became a disciple. At that time, he instantly changed the production line, so everything was vegetarian. Then later, in 2008, Master encouraged all the disciples to become vegan. At that time, Dad found that there was lots of Thai curry paste but none of them were vegan. So, he took the time to develop a very nice tasting curry paste and it’s totally vegan.” Sonya and Marisa, both vegans, have since developed a large variety of other vegan products that they launched under a new brand called Nature’s Charm. Many thanks, Sonya and Marisa, for introducing your company to us and the variety of amazing products you have created. How wonderful to know one can enjoy great tasting food, while at the same time know that no other beings on the planet have had to suffer for it.

The End of Animal Husbandry, Part 1 of 2

The End of Animal Husbandry, Part 1 of 2

Welcome to Part 1 of our 2-Part series, “The End of Animal Husbandry” where we’ll examine the frightening relationship between animal livestock raising and global pandemics. Since early 2020, much of the world has been on “lockdown” in a valiant effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19, one of the worst pandemics in recent history. By the end of April, 2020, the United Food and Commercial Workers Union reported that at least 20 meatpacking workers had died, 6,500 others had tested positive or been quarantined, and 22 major meat and poultry processing plants had temporarily closed their doors. In a Facebook Live interview, Dr. Gary Anthone, Nebraska's Chief Medical Officer, said, “If there's one thing that might keep me up at night, it's the meat processing plants." According to the US trade association Delmarva Poultry Industry, Inc., one factory farm recently euthanized two-million chickens deemed to be in excess. Political leaders from Iowa warned that if the state’s slaughterhouses remained closed, producers could be forced to euthanize as many as 700,000 pigs a week. COVID-19 has shaken our world. But, in fact, humans are not the only ones suffering from a pandemic. Recently, millions of domestic animals have also died from global virus-induced illnesses. Although these recent diseases are not transferrable to humans, they have been highly lethal for factory-farmed animals. In August 2018, the first case of African Swine Flu was discovered on a farm in China’s northeastern province of Liaoning. Over the next year, the disease spread quickly across much of the county, killing as many as 220 million pigs. What is all this death and destruction trying to tell us? Supreme Master Ching Hai has warned us many times that when we kill others, either animals or humans, we create immensely bad karma for ourselves. “The current COVID-19 pandemic is a direct karmic consequence of our actions. So this karma cannot be escaped. You can change it by taking dramatic counter-reaction. (Yes. What’s this counter-reaction?) It’s GO TOTAL VEGAN!”

In today’s news, France contributes food aid to South Sudan, access to affordable housing in India receives a boost, Philippines to utilize offshore wind technology, solar power car cover developed in France, leading vegan meat company feeds medical workers in United States during pandemic, United Kingdom public sector catering operators vow to reduce meat, and dugong population increases in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.   France supports nutrition in South Sudan. The French government contributed €500,000 to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), which will be used to provide 29,000 people, including expectant and nursing mothers as well as vulnerable youngsters in Jonglei and Upper Nile areas, with more than 170 metric tons of special nutritious products. Matthew Hollingworth, WFP’s Country Director in South Sudan, expressed his appreciation for the urgently needed donation, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since 2014, France has contributed US$1.3 million to WFP’s work in South Sudan. Our heartfelt gratitude, France, for your generosity and care for our South Sudanese sisters and brothers. May the kind people of South Sudan soon see bright tomorrows in the Divine’s uplifting grace.   Asian Development Bank (ADB) promotes housing for underserved people in India. The ADB has agreed to lend up to US$60 million to Indian affordable housing lender, Aavas Financiers Ltd, to enhance the availability of housing finance for lower-income individuals in the country, especially women as primary or co-borrowers. This initiative should increase property ownership for women in low-income communities, who have been traditionally underserved, as it opens up opportunities for reasonably priced housing. Bravo, Asian Development Bank and Aavas Financiers Ltd, for this wise venture. With such important support to vulnerable women and families, may India grow in prosperity and happiness for the benefit of all citizens, in Celestial radiance.   Up next, Philippines to utilize offshore wind technology. Let’s take a moment to thank the education ministers of nations who shape and improve the education system of their countries at all levels. We will return with more rewarding news after these messages here on Supreme Master Television.   Hi, generous viewers! I’m Maru the Markhor, and I live on a plant-based diet. Today I have an eco-tip for you. Most receipts cannot be recycled, because they are BPA-coated, a chemical that has been classified by the European Union as toxic for human reproduction and harmful to the environment. Hence, for health and environmental protection, start using electronic receipts today! You can request an e-receipt to be emailed to you at the time of in-store purchases. In addition, e-receipts are easier to store on your computer and keep track of the product warranty because paper receipts can be easily lost. Thank you for tuning in, and love you a lot for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! Now, for the weather around the globe.   The Philippines welcomes its first offshore wind projects. The Philippines’ Department of Energy awarded Triconti Windkraft Group, a Filipino-Swiss-German partnership, a 1.2 gigawatts wind energy contract to build two wind facilities in offshore locations of the Northern and Central Philippines. The Aparri Bay Offshore Wind Project will be situated off the coast of Cagayan Province, occupying over 14,000 hectares and producing electricity at 500-600 megawatts capacity, while the 600-megawatt Guimaras Strait nearshore project between Panay and Negros islands will cover 12,700 hectares of coastal area. The total output will help the nation increase its renewable energy sector, and provide clean and affordable electricity to local residents. Thank you, Triconti Windkraft Group and the Philippine government, for your swift movement to renewable energy. May God bless our world with more green solutions.   Solar panel car cover developed to recharge electric vehicles. French industrial coating and printing company, Armor, has created a product called ASCA, which uses organic polymers that are printed on flexible films to create thin, light and supple solar panels. The material can also be adhered to the body of the car, as it is durable and weighs only 450 grams per square meter. An average size cover of five square meters can provide enough charge in eight hours of sunlight to give an extra up to 15 kilometers of range per day. What a clever design, Armor! May your thin-film solar panels soon be incorporated into all electric vehicles as we quickly implement the concepts of a circular economy to save and reuse our resources, in Heaven’s loving patience.   Beyond Meat donates to hospital workers and people in need during pandemic. Vegan food company Beyond Meat from the United States donated one million vegan burgers to food banks, frontline workers and organizations in need. The burgers were distributed by the company’s staff, friends and ambassadors such as professional basketball star and vegan, Kyrie Irving, who gave 200,000 of the burgers to Food Bank for New York City. Also, vegan comedian Kevin Hart sent the healthful Beyond Burger to hospital staff at Northridge Hospital Medical Center in Southern California. Vegan seafood brand, Sophie’s Kitchen, also contributed US$210,000 worth of fish-free tuna to San Francisco Bay Area food banks. And Miyoko’s Creamery has been serving 1,500 to 2,000 vegan grilled cheese sandwiches each week to people who work in Northern California hospitals. Many thanks, Beyond Meat, Sophie’s Kitchen, Miyoko’s Creamery and all involved. In Divine insight, may your delectable and nutritious food help to awaken the realization in people of the vegan solution for our planet.   Coming up, United Kingdom public sector catering operators commit to meat reduction. We’ll pause now to appreciate the traditional art of textile making from the Li ethnic group of Hainan Province, China, a UNESCO-inscribed Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Supreme Master Television will return in just a moment with more exceptional news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News - Giving News for a Selfless World.   Caterers in the United Kingdom pledge to reduce meat served. UK public sector food caterers, who serve billions of meals per year to one-quarter of the nation’s population, will reduce meat by 20%, or nine million kilograms. While the effects of the change will reach their customers in schools, hospitals, universities, care homes and more, the industry also seeks to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as the nation moves towards achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. An equivalent of 16 million chickens or 45,000 cows per year are expected to be saved by the new pledge. Our salute, United Kingdom caterers, for your high thinking decision to reduce the amount of meat used in your meals. May your actions have profound effects on the eating habits of people all over the world as all nations move to completely eliminate meat from the diet of their cherished citizens, in Heaven’s mercy.   Dugong population increases in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. According to a study by Shining World Leadership Award for Environmental Protection laureate, the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi (EAD), the survival rate of dugongs has significantly increased since a ban on fishing nets was implemented in December 2018. Abu Dhabi waters are home to around 3,000 dugongs, the world’s second-largest population of the gentle herbivores. Seeing that they were becoming increasingly vulnerable to fishing, the EAD in coordination with the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment introduced the ban to help protect the dugongs and other endangered marine species. Our gratitude, Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi and UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment. May our world continue this trend to protect and nurture each and every one of our precious animal co-inhabitants for a vegan future, in the abounding love of Allah.   Time now to enjoy the joke of the day entitled, “An Advantage.”   Did you know that there is a new car wash opening up in your neighborhood? How convenient! I can walk to it!   Thank you for your presence on Noteworthy News. May the light of the Providence shine on you always.   And now we have a heartline from Andrea MacGregor in New Zealand: Dear Supreme Master Ching Hai and all the Supreme Master TV team around the world, I would like to give you all the biggest thanks ever for saving my son and me. Our lives are like living in Heaven now after spending so many years in a nightmare. My son is 12 now and has autism. For 11 years, he had the most incredible meltdowns which could go on for hours.

Selections from Jagatguru Adi Shankaracharya’s Hymns – "Shivananda Lahari," Part 1 of 2

Selections from Jagatguru Adi Shankaracharya’s Hymns – "Shivananda Lahari," Part 1 of 2

Born in 8th Century India, Jagatguru Adi Shankaracharya showed an early interest in spiritual life. By age eight, He had read and understood all of the Vedic scriptures. After receiving permission to leave home in pursuit of spiritual attainment, He met and received instruction from Guru Govinda Bhagavatpada. Shankaracharya went on to write commentaries on the ancient doctrine, “Advaita Vedanta” as well as the “Bhagavad Gita” and the ten principal Upanishads. He became known as the founder of the Smartha tradition, which brought together several branches of the Hindu faith and highlights the oneness of the inner Self (Atman) with the Supreme God (Nirguna Brahman). Shankaracharya also composed 72 hymns of praise and reverence for the Divine, dedicated to Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva. “Shivananda Lahari,” or “Waves of the Bliss of Shiva,” is one of the devotional hymns composed by Adi Shankaracharya. “Oh Lord Shambu, who grants us happiness, Let these waves of ecstasy of Lord Shiva, Flowing from the holy history of yours, Calming the dusts of sin forever, Rushing from the canals of wisdom, Falling into the whirlpool of life, Dousing the fires of sorrow, Living in my heart as senses, Be always victorious. I pray with all my heart, Him who is known by the three Vedas, Him who is pleasant to the mind, Him who is first among everything, Him who has all seeing three eyes, Him who carries the weight of matted lock, With eminence great, Him who wears the moving snake as necklace, Him who holds the jumping deer in his hand, Him who is greatest among devas, Him who shines with glitter, Him who has mercy on me, Him who is the Lord of all beings, Him who is the only support to holy wisdom, Him who is always with my Goddess, And Him who is a great entertainer.”

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 3 of 3

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 3 of 3

The threat of future zoonoses or animal-transmitted diseases is even more concerning. Currently, over 72 billion land animals are slaughtered for human consumption every year. And what’s even more troubling is that many of these animals were raised on factory farms. For years, world health experts have warned about the dangers of factory farms as uncontrolled sources of new viruses. World organizations recognize the need for international regulation of the livestock animals’ industry. Pandemics are immensely costly, both in terms of lives lost and economic costs, and most of them come from animals. Raising livestock animals and meat consumption are also the major causes of climate change, deforestation, pollution, and loss of wildlife. Ed Winters, aka “Earthling Ed,” is a vegan educator from London, England. he explains that meat consumption has been the root cause of many of the world’s deadliest diseases. As such, eating meat can no longer be considered a “personal choice.” Dr. Michael Klaper, a highly acclaimed physician, consultant, and speaker, believes the current pandemic is a warning. Dr. Klaper: “I have to say something about the origin of this scourge that we’re facing. This was not a random event. It has to do with the confinement and slaughter and eating of animals.” For more than three decades, Supreme Master Ching Hai has been reminding us about the bad karma we incur from eating meat and the need to adopt the compassionate, plant-based lifestyle. The current situation is so critical that in March 2020 Master sent an “URGENT Message to All World Leaders and Governments.” “The WORLD IS BURNING, threatens to get worse any moment, HUMANS AND ANIMALS PERISHING at an alarming rate. Heavens and Earth are plaguing us with ever new, more strange diseases. Destructive signs are evident everywhere. WARNING SIGNS ARE AMBER and obvious around our world! Our climate is accelerating. So, stopping these brutal, murderous businesses is the fastest way to cool our Earth. And this VEGAN LAW IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO SAVE OUR WORLD.” Many thanks, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for your clear guidance and direction. We pray that all beings soon adopt the noble, compassionate vegan lifestyle.

Aylam Orian (vegan) and the National Animal Rights Day, Part 1 of 2

Today, we have the honor to feature American actor and animal rights activist Aylam Orian. In addition to his love of performing, Aylam has cared for the animals and their well-being from a very young age. In 2011, Mr. Orian brought together animal rights activists for what would eventually become the first National Animal Rights Day or NARD. “But we put on this event that was well attended. We called it ‘Our Planet. Theirs Too.’ But we did get people from all groups to come. We wrote the Declaration of Animal Rights. And it's actually the first National Animal Rights Day, June 5. This is a big event that celebrates animals, and the planet, and how humans can live with both in peace and harmony. And we really want to show people that another world is possible.” After that first NARD event in 2011, the ceremony spread to states all over the US and eventually throughout the world, including this ceremony in Los Angeles, California, USA, in 2015. “They took you from your family and stuck you in a testing place. They snatched you from your mommy before she touched your face. They sent you to the circus ring to amuse the laughing crowds. They stripped you of your hair and skin and threw you on the ground. But even in these moments, we wanted you to know that we see you, we hear you, we feel you; we love you, that you are not alone. One day on this ravaged earth, when blood and tears subside, everything will be so calm and green from side to side. Animals like me and you will share this place in peace. And there will be no suffering, just joy and love and ease.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Happily present Aylam Orian with the Shining World Compassion Award, with a loving gift of US$10,000 towards your noble organization, Our Planet. Theirs Too. Lots of love, praises and prayers for your success, in God’s mercy.” For more information about Aylam Orian’s projects, please visit the following websites: The National Animal Rights Day TheNARD.org Our Planet. Theirs Too. OurPlanet TheirsToo.org The Declaration of Animal Rights DeclarationofAR.org The National Animal Rights Day is being observed on Sunday, June 7, 2020, through an online global event.
