TOPUnited Nations advocates lower meat consumption to halt climate change

United Nations climate change experts call for urgent reduction of meat consumption. In its “Climate Change and Land” report recently approved by world governments in Geneva, Switzerland, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) urged for an immediate decrease in meat and dairy consumption as a key policy response to the global warming crisis. The panel of 107 leading scientists examined over 7,000 research studies and found that the vegan diet is highest in carbon mitigation potential, followed by the vegetarian diet. Notably, livestock rearing led to almost 75% of worldwide deforestation and massive production of heat-trapping methane gas. However, a plant-based diet can free up millions of square kilometers of land for carbon-absorbing forests and reduce up to eight gigatons of carbon emissions annually by 2050. Our gratefulness for your comprehensive study and vital recommendations, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. May all governments take swift and bold actions to promote the Earth-saving vegan lifestyle to their cherished citizens, in Heaven’s abiding care.

The Unique and Amazing Galápagos Marine Iguanas

The Unique and Amazing Galápagos Marine Iguanas

You will not find marine iguanas like me anywhere else in our world. We are the only sea-going lizards! When marine iguanas don’t have enough to eat, they not only become thinner, they also become shorter. Scientists have observed that during times of EI Niño-induced food shortages, our bodies shrink in length and then regrow when food becomes plentiful again. The researchers think that we actually digest up to 20% of our bones to survive. Adult iguanas can switch between shrinkage and growth repeatedly throughout their lifetime – a perfect adaptation to EI Niño events.

The Great Benefit of Having Retreats, Part 1 of 2 April 10, 2019

These are only for the dead people who suffer in hell or in some unfavorable realm. If difficult to take care, during retreat, can take care. So, all together, it’s about 731,114,123 souls. This also has some part of yours in it, so I could tell you, I guess. They’re automatically liberated during retreat. Not automatically, but, I mean, at that time, it’s easy to take them up. They all go to the New Land. I mean, New Spiritual Tim Qo Tu’s. “People who watched Supreme Master Television or Your videos, minimum three times is good enough; three minutes each time.” That’s enough already to get them up.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Feeling Skandhas (Continued), Part 1 of 7, Dec. 27, 2018

But the person who reached this state of extreme self-satisfaction, he thinks he is above everything. But this is just one state, which is called “viewing oneself as supreme, but lacking wisdom to save oneself” even. You can’t even save yourself, not to talk about going out and saving other souls. This is terrible. Then you’re falling. If he knows it, then it’s OK. But if he doesn’t know, then he will fall. The demons and all that will come. “Those who have deep faith in him will follow him to destroy the images or bury them. He will mislead living beings, so that they fall into the Relentless Hells.”

The Grace of the Ultimate Master, Part 1 of 4 Feb. 26, 2005

You have to put priority, have to know what’s the most important thing. Now you know everything really helps. Very difficult to tell you what is what. Because you have to also be sincere, you know? For example, if you watch TV for one hour, you have like 2000 points. My TV, my video. Even my poems, listening to my poem, my songs, anything, or any of the things I say, jokes, whatever. Poetry even, 400 points for one song that you listen, suppose I sing it. If it puts your mind at rest a little bit, then you have points. Not because of the music, but because your mind is at rest, so the Master Power can pour in.

You contributed during your retreat 6.1% together. Then it’s not bad already. Better than nothing. But I am grateful. 6.1%, that is multiplying to 731 million, for example. You know, this is a lot. It’s a lot of souls. Otherwise, they would have been still laying in the hell or somewhere else. Very good. So, retreat is good. They thank you also. They always appear and thank me after I do retreat or something intensive, or sometimes, when they are liberated somehow in connection with me. Finally, helping them to go up and be totally free, not just go to somewhere on the Fourth Level, Fifth Level, and stay there. But go up to Tim Qo Tu Land.

That’s why Maya tried to even disrupt me in one of those first days of my first retreat ever since, in Taiwan (Formosa). Suddenly the Supreme Master TV was just blocked out and just noise, just “hooong” like that. Because he does it so discretely, I asked Heaven, “What is that? Who dares to do that?” He said, “Maya.” I said, “Why does he do that?” And They said, “Because You and the Supreme Master TV form the ring of protection everywhere. He tried to scare You out of it.”

If we are not satisfied with that, then we go further; but if we think we are great already, then we stop. That is the problem. It’s a pity. “For the most part, such cultivators will become like the Unlearned Bhiksu,” monk, unlearned monk. “He will mislead living beings, so that they will fall into the Avichi Hell.” Oh, this is worse. “Lacking proper samadhi, he will certainly fall.” My God! Maya is so cruel. That is the problem. If you really want to become a Buddha, he will be so harsh on you. That is the thing. That’s why.

Ways to Gain Spiritual Merit, Part 3 of 4 Feb. 26, 2005

You gain more points all the time if you know how. Even if you don’t meditate well, there are many ways to gain spiritual merit. You read Master’s books, even picture, oh, a lot of merit, OK? Even picture, read magazine, read books, watch TV, just like seeing me, understand? Millions of points! Every time, all the time, if you do it 24 hours, anytime you can, you’ll be in the Fifth Level in no time! You just don’t utilize it. And you serve your brothers, sisters. You gain points from each other. You are each other’s treasure as well.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Thinking Skandhas, Part 1 of 8, Dec. 28, 2018

You can see many different religious orders, people copy the Masters and do all kinds of rituals and all kinds of ways, just to entrap people in there and make them busy with just rituals; useless, all kinds of useless things, wasting their time and obstructing them from finding the real Master, to be liberated. The reason He tells all this, we also have to thank the Reverend Bodhisattva, high-soul Ananda also. Many things the Buddha taught because Ananda asked. So, he had great compassion also. If Ananda had not asked, we would not have all this. Maybe Buddha did not think about it. And if Ananda had not asked on behalf of the mother of Buddha, then we would not have any nuns, Buddhist nuns, nowadays.

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-five Means to Enlightenment, Session One, Part 1 of 5 April 4, 2019

The Buddha asked them, “‘Which method has brought you enlightenment to begin with?’” So, one by one, they will tell the Buddha now. Not all Quan Yin method. Actually, when the Buddha was alive, He taught quite a few methods. And Patanjali, one of the great Indian Masters, also taught His disciples quite different methods. Oh, a lot of them, a lot of them. But we don’t need all that; it’s too confusing for you. And it’s not so guaranteed; it’s not so easy for busy life like today. And also because nowadays we are very, very much contaminated by so many things and so distracted. Therefore, Quan Yin Method is easier for all of you.

At that time, because of the power of the Buddha blessing, so he suddenly realized that all forms in this world are impermanent and made of dust only and then it will return to dust. Therefore, he became enlightened at that time. Fragrance-Adorned Bhiksu, told Buddha that, “‘I sat in a quiet corner of a pure dwelling. When I saw the bhiksus light sinking incense, the fragrant scent quietly entered my nostrils. I contemplated this fragrance: it did not come from the wood; it did not come from the emptiness; it did not come from the smoke, it did not come from the fire. There was no place where it came from and no place it went to. Because of this, my discriminating mind was dispelled, and I attained the absence of outflows.’”

Yesterday, I was talking about the fourth meditation method with the two Kings of Medicine, plus the 500 other Brahma gods, who are also helping with the healing process. Any healing things, any healing process or power, mostly came from the Three Worlds, because it is the physical body, physical world, and they control them. Probably the 500 Brahma gods were also physically present, because they probably incarnated into the world to help people, to help healing. And these two Kings of Medicine, they have been doing life after life; therefore, they have such a powerful healing technique or help to their patients.

The Story of Creation, Part 1 of 4, Feb. 26, 2005

So most people who worship God, that is Brahma, the Third World. Nevertheless, he is great! When you get to the Third World, you are free already. Because that is the origin of all these gross levels. The origin of all, the most from God. So he creates, creates. He creates only up to the Astral Level. Astral! Because from the Brahma to the Astral, it is still fine. You don’t have this physical body. And then the Astral wants to create the physical! You know that, huh? Because he is also itchy, itchy there: “I have the power! I have the power!”

“We first heard the Dharma and left the home-life under King of Awesome Sound Buddha. Once, when it was time for the sangha to bathe, I followed the custom and entered the bathhouse. Suddenly I awakened to the fact that water does not wash away the dust, nor does it cleanse the body. At that point, between the two, I became peaceful, and I attained the state of there being nothing at all.” “ ‘To this day, I have never forgotten that past experience. Having left home with the Buddha, I have gone beyond learning. That Buddha named me Bhadrapala. Wonderful touch was revealed, and I accomplished the position of the Buddha’s disciple. The Buddha asks about perfect penetration. As I have been certified to it, touch is the superior means.’”

Rotten ghost and has so much power. I feel ashamed as a human. He’s just a rotten ghost and he has so much power to sway people’s minds and cheating them into believing in him that much. And we’re so powerless. We’re supposed to be God and Buddha. How come we have no power? Imagine that? That’s the price to come into this physical body; that’s the price to pay. You have come here for some reason and you also had to make a contract before you came; you have made a contract. Maybe also intended to do good, but then, when we come down here, they make us forget everything; forget and just go with the flow.

“You should be aware of this,” in advance and not get caught up in the cycle of transmigration. It's better than pushing it. Because if you are so greedy in such a way, or so fanatically seek for union with God when you are not ready, then “demon from the heavens seizes the opportunity it has been waiting for. Its spirit possesses another person and uses him as a mouthpiece” to come to you explaining, “lf you follow me, you will get union with God,” etc. Same like if any Master would tell you. The Maya tries many ways to enchant you, to make you stray away from your noble high purpose.

“‘His wonderful sound was both secret and all-pervasive. It was through sound that I became an Arhat.’” “‘As I have been certified to it, sound is the superior means.’” “‘I learned to contemplate the appearance of impurity until I grew to loathe it and came to understand that the nature of all form is unclean. Bare bones and subtle dust all return to emptiness, and so both emptiness and form are done away with. With this realization, I accomplished the Path Beyond Learning. The Thus Come One certified me and named me Upanished. The object of form came to an end, and wonderful form was both secret and all-pervasive. Thus, it was through the appearance of form that I became an Arhat. The Buddha asks us about perfect penetration. As I have been certified to it, form is the superior means.’”

Being Alone Brings Concentration and Happiness, Part 1 of 3 April 4, 2019

The more stuff we have, the more troublesome it becomes. We have to wipe and to clean it, and worry about it getting taken away by others; worry about thieves. If we have nothing, then we have nothing to worry about. If we have little and cherish what we have, it will be just the same as if we own a lot. We feel even happier than having more stuff. But of course, you must take care of your body; don’t abuse it; don’t let it get sick. However, we don’t need so much to make ourselves healthy and happy. On the contrary, having fewer things and being alone will give us less trouble; no arguments and no distractions. We can be very focused on meditation, or think about something that can help the world.

If the Buddha were to use that, then He’d have subdued all, the whole world already, no need for anybody else to come behind Him. You see, that’s the difference between a Buddha and a demon. The demon, he uses power just to control people. The Buddha, He had to use reason. If He used His power at all, it was because that person needed it, maybe needed to heal at that time, needed to be awakened from some trouble, like Ananda for example, and to use it to help His disciples in time of need. Otherwise, if the Buddha had used all His power just to bless this person, control that person, then the whole India at that time would’ve knelt at His feet already.
