The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity - Refrain from Stealing and Lying, Part 5 of 7, Dec. 23, 2018

That’s the most heinous lie of all, that you say you attained Buddhahood, but you have not. Meaning deceiving other beings, and then the other beings, they follow you, they also fall into the same pit. That is why it is so bad. This is the worst lie you can commit, because you lead other beings into the false views with you too, believing in your power, when you don’t have it. So, if you go to hell, they will have to go with you, because you deceived them. Also, deprived them from a chance to meet a real living Buddha, and that’s why it’s the worst sin you can commit, the worst lie ever. In Buddhism, they say it’s the greatest lie that you can commit, unredeemable.

From the Sacred Text of the Universal White Brotherhood: The Desired Peace, Part 2 of 2

The person of love can increase at will not only his body temperature, but also his Inner Light, making it a thousand times brighter than the Solar one. Such Light will blind even the most numerous and powerful army. People cannot imagine yet a Light that is a thousand times brighter than the solar one. One can achieve anything with such Light. Whoever has warmth of ten thousand degrees and Light a thousand times brighter than the Solar one can warm all frozen hearts and remove all obstacles. Great warmth and Light are coming into the world. These are Divine forces, which will warm and enlighten the human heart and minds.

Traditonal Musical Instrument: Enchanting Mandolin, Part 1 of 2

Although there are many variations, the mandolin generally has a hollow wooden body that includes a soundboard with a teardrop shape. Today, the mandolin plays a vital role in both orchestral and bluegrass music. As Mr. Nigel Woodhouse, a professional mandolinist who has played with many world-renowned orchestras and ensembles, explains: “… the mandolin has two of each string; they’re close pairs intended to be played as one string. It’s the doubling of the strings which gives the mandolin its particular resonance and sustain.”

So, being a monk or nun also has a very good advantage; you train yourself in some discipline.It’s a very noble kind of lifestyle, very frugal, very humble,but high living, high thinking, high enlightenment. And now, even if these monks and nuns may not study with me or something, when I see monks and nuns outside, when I pass by in the airport or outside, I always make offering and always make obeisance to them, because I respect their ideal. Not their body, but their ideal, their goal, the noble aspiration, I respect that.

And stealing is also harming others in a different way, because if you steal somebody’s money or something that he or she needs, then you discomfort that person. So, these are unalterable rules of the universe that you must keep in order to be liberated. If cultivators of Chan Samadhi, do not cease stealing, they are like someone who pour water into a leaking cup and hopes to fill it. So, if you don’t keep these basic precepts, then no matter how long you meditate, it just keeps leaking out, gone, gone to the Maya power. The Maya will take it and use it to harm you and harm others as well.

Mother Nature’s Secret: A Charming Vegan Tale by Marian Hailey-Moss, Part 1 of 6

Since I’ve been meditating, I’ve become vegan; of course, and much more aware of what happens to animals in the world. It’s like you have to do something with this knowledge; you want to tell people about it. So, I can’t dance it, can’t act it. So, I write it, and you learn as you go along. How I found the illustrator, I googled, children’s illustrators, and I saw Marc Chalvin and immediately I knew that was the one. He’s French, and English is not his first language, And I never met him, but we do all our things. So, all our communication is through the script.

The Bright Future of Solar Energy: Interview with Professor Martin Green, Part 2 of 3

Internationally renowned for his advancements in solar energy, Professor Green is known as the “father of photovoltaics.”As technology advances, solar energy is becoming more and more efficient. How long will it be before solar becomes our major source of energy? It’s going to happen very quickly in Australia. So, I have just come from South Australia. But it’s expected by 2024, they’ll be generating more energy from solar than the grids are going to be able to use. So that’s going to be some type of turning point.

From the Sacred Text of the Universal White Brotherhood: The Desired Peace, Part 1 of 2

These new human beings will be bearers of love among all people and nations. As a result, all nations will live for one another as in a family: big nations will be the big brothers, and small nations - the little ones. They will all have Peace and Harmony among themselves. This is the Will of God, Who is the Creator of the Universe. You ask when this time will come. It will come in the near future. Modern humankind is at the threshold of a new epoch as the solar system has already entered the realm of .the Divine Dawning. When this time comes, there will be no conditions for the existence of malevolent people.They will perish one after another and the Earth will get rid of them.

So, keep the Five Precepts. Always think good, do good, and help others if you can. Then you will be surely reborn again as a good human, have a decent life or maybe a rich life, it depend on how much you gave and how much heart you had while you were giving it, how pure you were when you gave it. You set your mind truly, firmly on the path of renunciation, and to help yourself and sacrifice for others. This is the symbol of sacrifice and disregard for your comfort, for other beings in the future. Because to be a monk, your ideal is to liberate others, to help others to understand the holy teachings, not for yourself only.

People are changing, mentalities are changing. You know, to change the world, you have to be the change. When you teach people and show them to be loving and caring towards other living beings, and you show them that an animal has feelings just like we do. And educate the community and make them understand that every life is precious, they realize and understand this state change. We need to show people, you are doing right. When you do good and carry on doing good. Don’t then let others put you off. Because the more of us that speak up for the voiceless, the sooner we will make this world even better.

A History of Veganism - Part 1 of 4: Ancient Period

A History of Veganism - Part 1 of 4: Ancient Period

Far from being a new phenomenon, vegetarianism and veganism have enjoyed a long and diverse history since the beginning of our sojourn on Earth. The term vegetarian was not coined until the 1800s, and the tern vegan not until 1944.Before these words were invented and popularized, a vegetarian diet was referred to as the "vegetable diet," or the "Pythagorean diet," after the preeminent Greek philosopher Pythagoras.Generally, the further back in time, the less certain it is whether a particular historical figure was vegetarian, lacto-vegetarian, ovo-vegetarian,or vegan. For the purpose of this show,we will use the term vegetarian to represent all these different types of vegetarianism where there is no certainty.

Exploring the World Beyond: An Interview with Spiritual Master Brahmarishi Mohanji, Part 2 of 2

So, samadhi is the state of stillness. So the state of stillness is a state of Shiva. Kailash is stillness. You are everything; you depend on nothing. Somebody who is not controlled by the mind is a master. So a master is a master over the mind. He is not controlled by the mind. Once you reach that state, the only message to the world is : remain in peace, remain in harmony, remain in love. Because all the emotions like waves, are coming out of the mind, or coming through the mind. But you are not the mind. You are the ocean of peace. And there is no difference between any beings of the world.

The Bright Future of Solar Energy: Interview with Professor Martin Green, Part 1 of 3

Where will we get our power in the future? And what are the best sources of renewable energy? Professor Martin Green, the “father of photovoltaics” shares his insights on these questions. I see solar and wind, and I think most of the electricity companies here in Australia would see solar being their main source of electricity generation over the coming decades. So, they have no interest in building any more coal-fired plants in Australia, because it’s too expensive and the solar is going to become even cheaper.Internationally renowned for his work in improving solar energy, his group has held the world record for achieving the highest efficiency in silicon soar cells for 30 of the past 34 years.
