Holy Songs: Devotional Hindu Songs

00:18:27

Holy Songs: Devotional Hindu Songs

Our program today will feature Hindu songs composed and performed by Mr. Ramanathan Brahmanandam, a respected Hindu scholar and musician. He is also a compassionate vegetarian, who practices ahimsa (nonviolence) to aid his own Self-realization. Apart from being a distinguished scholar of Hinduism, Mr. Brahmanandam is also well-versed in the classical music tradition of South India. He composes and sings his own compositions in Tamil, which are steeped in philosophical content. The first song is called “kaņņirundum,” which stresses the importance of learning the scared text Ātma-bodha, or knowledge of the Self. The song initiates with a sloka, which serves as a prayer to the Divine Self, the true essence of our being. The next song is called “Thaye-en-Thuyar,”which expresses one’s longing to see the Mother Goddess Pārvatī in Hinduism and to be saved from the cycle of transmigration. “You are the illusion manifesting as reality! The Empress of the universe! Goddess of good qualities! Will You not cast Your glance at me?”

Acts of Compassion Beget Acts of Heroic Love, Part 2 of 2

One day in 2016, rescuers found a severely wounded 2-year-old Golden Retriever in a garbage bag. Members of Nabiya Irion Hope Project rescued her and gave her urgent medical treatment. "Chi Chi" had lost all her legs, but not her strong will to live. The joint mission to give Chi Chi a new life brought these two noble organizations together, Nabiya-Irion Hope Project and ARME. Shannon Keith and her team at ARME found Chi Chi a loving home with Richard and Elizabeth Howell in Arizona, USA. After being fitted with special prostheses, Chi Chi trained to become a certified therapy dog. She then spent her life serving and comforting people in hospitals and social care centers until she passed away in 2019. She brought so much joy and happiness to people she was named the 2018 American Hero Dog. Touched by the love shared between Chi Chi and her rescuers, beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai tearfully sent, "a heartfelt thanks to all involved and a big hug to Chi Chi! You'll go to a forever Heaven and your benevolent adopted family be blessed forever." Master also presented the Shining World Compassion Award to both noble organizations, Nabiya-Irion Hope Project and ARME, and a US$10,000 contribution to each "with high salute and thankfulness. May all involved be immensely blessed."

Control One’s Desires and Choose the Safest Method of Enlightenment, Part 2 of 6, Oct. 6, 2019

“Kabir offered His wife to His neighbor in exchange for some food to feed His spiritual seeker guests. Does it make Him immoral, though He Himself abstained from sex?” “Many Saints are like that. They only have intercourse for the sake of having children. So, no Master does things actually, for the sake of Themselves, but for others, unconditionally with love. So, it is like a sacrifice, even though it doesn’t look like that. Not as we use sensual pleasure to just satisfy ourselves in a selfish way, or indulgent way, or ignorant way. That is the big difference between the enlightened beings and the ignorant rest. But not all Masters would do this kind of sacrifice; not all do that.” “Actually, in Heaven, they don’t call this sexual power. They call it ‘Peace Power.’ But rarely anyone can use this Peace Power to manipulate it for the world’s benefit. I only knew it as I practiced along and learned things as I go up, as per necessity, as per needed situation, so that I can bring this knowledge to you also. And once and for all, the humans can know this type of power, which is called ‘Peace Power’ actually. If you don’t abuse it, you will have peace, and you can make peace, and you can spread peace also to the world.” “That’s the ultimate. Because this is the ultimate, more than sacrifice of the body. Why? Because if you die as a martyr all will praise and worship you or believe in you. But if you have this physical, sensual acts with the opposite sex, no one would ever understand it as a sacrifice. So, your reputation will be ruined; one. Your disciples will run away; two. Etcetera, etcetera. So, you see this. This method is a no-no-no by all means, even by the adept. Actually, many Masters also don’t teach this. The Buddha also didn’t. Number one: it’s very difficult and dangerous. Number two: people can abuse it.”

Mayan Cosmo-vision: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

Mayan Cosmo-vision: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We will share with you what the Mayans believe about "parallel worlds" and the real meaning of "najt" (space-time). "Unlike the Western world's more linear vision, the Mayan perception of time is intertwined with space and frequency. We are outside the limitations of space-time; frequency is our channel to transcendence, to exceeding such limits. When we are able to perceive the essence, we touch God. Najt is where we reside. More precisely, it is where most people are trapped, in what we call reality. It is also what leads us to what we call the past or future, both of which are abstractions. The past does not exist. It existed. Now it's only a memory. The future does not exist either; it's what will be. There is only this instant, this very moment, the eternal present." "We have potential access to thousands of other dimensions, while even more fall outside our perception. The Grandfathers call these unreal dimensions 'unconfigured space.' The 'Popol Vuh' speaks of parallel dimensions as paradise and calls them Paxil and Kayala. In Paxil our perceptions are different. Our senses sharpen, and we are surrounded by a tranquil, harmonious, peaceful energy. It's like going back to the matrix, the origin. The most exquisite fruit and the most incredible stones can be found in Paxil, but most importantly, we are accepted unconditionally there - we are truly loved!"

Barbara Cole-Gates (vegan) – The Queen Bean for Lean and Green Kids, Part 2 of 2

Barbara Cole-Gates (vegan) – The Queen Bean for Lean and Green Kids, Part 2 of 2

Her mission to introduce plant-based meals and nutrition to schools began with the local PTA (Parent Teacher Association) nearly two decades ago. Advocating on behalf of children, the environment and the animals, through LGK, Barbara has developed plant-based nutrition and culinary education programs using a multi-cultural approach. The LGK programs include plant-based educational presentations and nutrition resources to school food professionals and students. Barbara studied in theater with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree which has really complimented her abilities in vegan outreach and advocacy with the Lean and Green Kids school programs. Barbara is also a children’s book author, and published Eating Lean and Green with Super Foods to Save the Planet, in 2016, and Jack and the Bean Stew, two years after. In particular, Barbara Cole-Gates’ nutrition book, Eating Lean and Green with Super Foods to Save the Planet, is a useful tool for teachers. It’s great to see Barbara’s and many vegan supporters’ efforts gaining momentum to reach a milestone in California, in a dedicated move towards the compassionate and healthy way of living. We also look forward to seeing broader positive changes for the whole nation, as well as the entire planet in the very near future.

Control One’s Desires and Choose the Safest Method of Enlightenment, Part 1 of 6, Oct. 6, 2019

“It’s just everything is karma and we just have to live with that. We just have to. There’s no other way. We can’t escape right now. We’re still in prison. I mean the body is still in prison. Our soul could be free, just our body is not yet. And while we are having this body, we will have to bear all kinds of subsequent elements, or conditions or situations that we sometimes did not expect. And even if we expect, we cannot avoid. We can only do more meditation. Pray for the situation to go by, fast! As fast as possible. For you it’s easy: Pray to Master and She takes care of everything. Master cannot pray. I can only pray for you, for the world. I cannot pray for myself.” “Actually, we are catching up. The more vegan people, the more benevolent our planet’s atmosphere, the more comfortable our physical life will be. And the more comfortable the physical life, the more we can have relaxation, peaceful heart to practice meditation, if we are wise. Some people, the more high-tech instrument they have, the more they just enjoy material comfort and they forgot. But we are getting better. The whole human race is getting better. So we have more vegetarian people now. I just saw in the news, 32% of people don’t eat animals anymore and 22% are getting rid of meat and others are getting there. I’m very happy. It’s just too slow for me but better than nothing. That means billions of animals’ lives have been saved and a lot of carbon dioxide and methane gas has been minimized. That’s better already. And I hope your children’s generation will inherit a better planet than we are having now. We all try to be diligent and that will be done.”

Mayan Cosmo-vision: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

In today's program, we are going to share with you some thoughts on Mayan cosmo-vision and life-purpose. These topics are discussed in the book titled "The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012" by Mayan Ajq'ij (spiritual guide) Don Carlos Barrios. "At this stage, science will not be able to save us unless we reach a comprehensive awareness. We must return to the Natural Order. We must strive to live a simple, harmonious life that is ecologically conscientious. The wonder of creation is found in the little things. We need to live in harmony and expand our sensibilities. It's very simple: life is about finding the answers inside, awakening the knowledge and powers that lie dormant, controlling our desires, using the strength of our minds for spiritual growth, and projecting ourselves onto the Supreme. The day we start believing this will be the day life smiles upon us." "The Mayan cosmo-vision is an attitude, and approach to life; it is the way in which we learn to live with our perceptions of reality. Everything is integral; nothing is isolated from the sequence of life. Every action is connected to, and forms part of, the cosmic forces, the manifestation of nature and telluric energy. This convergence arises out of a state of universal consciousness. Existence is a continuum, and our insertion into reality is a mystery. It is the power of the Creator and Maker. ‘We are just one thread in this wonder we call existence. We inhabit a reality shaped and modeled after the cosmos, and we vibrate in tune with the movement of the stars. We must always remember that reality is from the eyes inward and illusion is from the eyes outward.’"

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 2 of 3

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 2 of 3

Over the past century, almost every pandemic has been a zoonoses. World authorities and organizations have become increasingly alarmed about the ever-increasing number of zoonotic diseases. The World Health Organization has also expressed concern, estimating that approximately one billion illnesses and millions of deaths occur each year from zoonoses, and that 60% of all existing infectious diseases in the world came from animals. As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, China temporarily closed some of its live animal markets, but did not ban them. Many believe far bolder action is required, even on a global level. Supreme Master Ching Hai tell us it is not, and frequently reminds us that the true cause of all pandemics is meat consumption, as in a 2009 conference in Thailand. “According to the scientific study of these fatal diseases, all of them originated from human hunting or slaughter of animals for meat. This is the activity that must cease for the betterment of humanity, animals and our world - the meat eating must stop.”

Explore the Extraordinary World of the Animals with Yolaine de la Bigne (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

It is our honor to introduce Ms. de la Bigne to you in this two-part series. She is a passionate French animal advocate, journalist, and for 12 years was a presenter for a daily program aired by the French national radio network France Info. This thoughtful lady has authored many books, including “The Secrets of Animal Intelligence.” In 2016, she established an annual event called the Animal Summer Gathering, inviting scientists from various fields and people from all walks of life to present on topics relating to animal intelligence. Yolaine will share with us her in-depth understanding of the animals that she has gained over many years. “I had a media entity dedicated to the environment for 10 years called Néoplanéte, which had an online radio station, a free printed magazine and a website. Because I think the most important theme today is that without our planet, we won’t make it, and people don’t realize that.” “The horse is an extremely therapeutic animal. He sees you coming, by the way you walk, by the eyes you have, the way you are, the way you act; he already knows what you’re thinking. He already knows what emotional state you’re in.” “When a chick is born, they can count to five.” “The singing males then enter the scene, in tropical areas, they encircle masses of phytoplankton in suspension, and for several days, even weeks, they will sing songs which will act on the assembly of the amino acids that compose these proteins, modify their connections and thus create new richer proteins that will then allow suckling females to get an additional protein supply.”

Before, my life was different. I had a big center, everybody came all the time, no problem. Always welcome! Low-level, high-level, no-level, zero-level, OK! But because of that, I had problems. Big karma, big problem. And now, I can’t… Even if I want to take them, I can’t. We don’t have a place! But if I have a place, I would let you come; I would invite you. No big deal! You don’t eat much, you don’t make trouble, you are good kids. You just sit there and mind your own business, right? I could have you any time. You are my type. If you just eat and have simple clothes, it’s no problem, all of you. No big deal. I really love you so much. I really wish that life is so easy and peaceful and we can just stay together, anybody! Young, old, talented or not. We don’t need any talent! We don’t need any skill, really! No problem. It’s very easy. I love that life very much. I like to be independent and creative. Make a house, a dwelling place, out of nothing! I like that! I don’t really like big houses, something like this. But in this weather, we are thankful that we have some walls and a roof, no? Or else, where do you sit? It’s too cold and damp. So that’s the problem.

Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 91 - Lord Kalki Avatar (vegetarian) and the New Satya Yuga

00:24:34

Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 91 - Lord Kalki Avatar (vegetarian) and the New Satya Yuga

Lord Kalki said:“My mission will be to eliminate the wicked Kali, with the help of My four brothers. O demigods, your expansions should also take birth on the earth to assist Me in My mission.” Similar to Lord Kalki’s four brother helpers, Supreme Master Ching Hai once revealed that She has four pillars of peace – saintly individuals who have been assisting in Her mission, even by sacrificing their lives, to bring the world closer to the Golden Age. “There are four people who sacrificed for peace, to help me out. To help the planet, actually. Like, if you want to succeed in some battle, taking down some of the citadels, then it’s better to have some insiders and outsiders, both together working. “At that time (when Kali Yuga ends), the Supreme Personality of Godhead will appear on the earth. Acting with the power of pure spiritual goodness, He will defend the Dharma (True teaching) and rescue the eternal Religion.” Here, the “eternal Religion,” Sanatana Dharma, refers to the way of spiritual life toward liberation. As we read a little further in this Bhagavata Purana, we find a description of the “transcendental knowledge” that the Kalki Avatar inherits when He came to Earth. Along with moral precepts, those teachings include meditation on the inner Heavenly Sound current, which is exactly what Supreme Master Ching Hai teaches. “[The sage] Suta Gosvami said: O brahmana, first the subtle VIBRATION OF TRANSCENDENTAL SOUND appeared from the sky of the heart of the most elevated Lord Brahma, whose mind was perfectly fixed in spiritual realization. One can perceive this subtle vibration when one stops all external hearing. By worship of this subtle form of the Vedas (Knowledge), O brahmana, mystic sages cleanse their hearts of all contamination caused by impurity of substance, activity and doer, and thus they attain freedom from repeated birth and death.”

Venerated Prophet Mani (vegan): The Messenger of Light, Part 1 of 2

Since ancient times, numerous Masters have graced our precious planet with their divine presence and have helped to uplift humanity’s spirit and level of consciousness. These Master courageously share their wisdom with the world through their holy teachings and continue to touch the lives of countless beings through their kindness and compassion. One such venerated Master was Prophet Mani, the founder of Manichaeism. Prophet Mani, known as the Messenger of Light, was a Persian Saint and preacher who founded the Manichaean religion in the third century AD. His teachings were primarily a culmination of Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, and Christianity. Prophet Mani was revered for revealing heavenly knowledge, modeling righteous behavior, practicing compassionate philanthropy, and having psychic abilities such as supernatural healing powers, clairvoyance, and levitation. The venerated Prophet Mani was born around 216 AD in Babylon, Mesopotamia, now modern-day Iraq. Prophet Mani heeded this call, and at the age of 25 years, He began preaching the Truth. His teachings would be called Manichaeism, and focused on dualistic cosmology. The Saint believed that God had created an immaculate world of light and spirit. Prophet Mani called himself an Apostle of Lord Jesus Christ who was here to teach the true message of Christianity. Prophet Mani was indeed a Messenger of Light, dedicated and determined to help liberate humanity.

Fruity Tutti Sorbet and Mint Soya Sorbet

Fruity Tutti Sorbet and Mint Soya Sorbet

Hi, everyone! It's summer. We're going to make somthing nice for summer. Here’s apple and banana, orange, some grapes, kiwi, melon, and watermelon. So, I’m going to cut them into very small pieces. You can put them in a blender; it’s quicker also. And if you don’t have a blender, you chop them as fine as you want, and then you can deep freeze them, and after two hours or so, you can take them out and eat as sorbet already, chunky sorbet. You make whatever sorbet you like, according to what fruit's available. Actually, most of the fruit, you can make sorbet. They will all taste nice. We’re going to make a little special sorbet without fruit. You put like one cup or one mug of soya milk, into the blender, three tablespoons of brown sugar. Not more. And then a handful of peppermint already washed in salty water. Now slow and quick, just a couple of seconds. That’s enough. You don’t want to liquefy the peppermint. It will taste better if it has chunks of peppermint in it. And then, you pour it into any cup or container, or mold that you like and put it in the fridge also. We are waiting for two hours. So this is the summer feast that I have prepared. By the way, even the fruit, you should wash them in salty water to clean away all the bad elements - toxin, or maybe insecticide, anything that could be harmful to your health. Whether you eat it raw or you will cook them, you should always soak them 3-5 minutes first in salty water. And then rinse them with clean water for 2-3 times.

Whoever wants to run around and has a chance. (I would also follow You, Master, because I am single, and I would like to follow You everywhere.) Why? (Because I love You.) Oh, thanks! That's a nice answer. I love you too. (Master, I would just love to serve God.) You are very nice. We can think about that. It's always the same. I don't really need anything. Because of you, I need you. Otherwise, there's nothing much really that I need, do I? Suppose you are not here, what do I need you for? But thanks. Thanks anyway. You are very kind to want to help. Because my life is always like a whirlwind. There's always an emergency, especially lately, because the whole universe is changing so fast. So, suppose, even if I take you with me, I don't know how to manage. Just space problem! Otherwise, the heart is big. But if I am free, I will see about it, OK? And not all of you can. Even then, not all of you can go, because sometimes the affinity is different. The maya tied all already, everywhere already. Everywhere, everybody's kind of tied up a little bit. A little bit. Some are bigger, and some smaller, but a little tied up somewhere. But never mind, write all your names down. Who knows? "...with you, my love, I'd like to go! Thither, thither!"
