I’m curious about how she manages all of these things, and does them so well? “So, with the vegan diet, I usually have like it planned out the day. So, I normally have a schedule that I stick to every day so that it doesn’t get overwhelming. So, with the vegan diet, your recovery time from injuries or muscle soreness takes much less time than if you’re eating animal proteins and an animal-based diet. And also a vegan diet really builds up your strength.” Since gymnastics is a very intense sport, how does Eshiana keep herself calm and focused? Dose she have a secret? “A lot of the time, I can get really overwhelmed and so meditation is a great way for me to chear my head and get into a better head space. One of my favorite things to do if a have extra time is, I love to read, write and draw.” Finally, Eshiana’s dad, Mr. Monk Coleman, would like to share with us something special that Eshiana drew when she was very young. “And I looked at it and I was blown away because she was only six or seven years old when she did this. And it was like a how you should live. It was a roadmap to how you should live, to live a happy, healthy, compassionate life. But this is it right here.”

Today, we have the good fortune of meeting the bright young lady, Eshiana Coleman, who is a vegan, an animal activist, and holds the title of an Elite Gymnast in the United States. And on multiple occasions, she has spoken strongly on behalf of animal welfare. Do you want to know why she decided to become an animal activist? “Yes, we do.” “I’m here to wake people up because animals have a brain, they have feelings, they want to be loved and they want to play, and it’s not good for the climate or your health at all. And I want to let people know that, so that they can live a really fulfilling life.” What does Eshiana eat at school? How does she keep the vegan diet there? “So sometimes if in the morning I don’t” feel like making my lunch or my parents don’t, I will go to school and just get the salad bar options. But if I want a homemade lunch, I usually just pack a sandwich with veggies, tomatoes, and mustard, and maybe some vegan meat slices. There are a lot of vegan recipes that you find online.” As a high academic achiever in school, Eshiana has maintained an A+ grade point average throughout the school year. She is also into acrobatic gymnastics, where she spends about 15 hours each week in training with USA gymnastics.

Not only can music change the way we feel, studies have also shown it can improve memory, sleep, verbal intelligence, and keep a healthy brain. Something happens in our brain when we listen to good music. Guess what? Yes, our animal friends respond to music too. Where did music come from? Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai is well known for Her Heaven inspired creations in art, music, and poetry, to name a few. Let’s hear what Master has to share with us about the origin of music and musical instruments. “These sounds are not ordinary sound. Just because, originally there’s no such instruments in this world. After the people who practiced well, they come to Heaven, they listened to the harp and the flute, and all that. The direct teaching from God, which is so melodious. Then they came back here, they tried to make the instrument, which became the musical instruments of our time.” Do you play an instrument? How fun it would be to make musical instruments of our own! “We made shakers. Let us show you how to make one, so you can play too.”

In 2016 Mr. Dion Leonard entered a 155-mile (250-km), seven-day ultramarathon in the Gobi Desert of China. The race was grueling, so he was surprised on the second day when a small dog began running alongside him. “Throughout the 77 miles (124 km) that she ran of the race, she could have gone off at any stage, but she didn’t. I saw a lot of courage and resilience in her.” What an incredible story of love and devotion! Gobi wouldn’t give up on Dion during the race, and Dion wouldn’t give up on finding Gobi! Dogs really bring a lot of fun and love into our lives. They also teach us about unconditional love. Do you have any good ideas about what we can do to help our loving dog friends? You could try to adopt, not shop! There are many abandoned dogs in no-kill shelters, currently hoping for homes. These beautiful animals will always be grateful that you book them into your life.

Today is Lunar New Year, or the Spring Festival, according to the lunar calendar. It’s the biggest holiday for many Asian countries, such as Korea, China, and Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam. How do people celebrate this big holiday? First of all, it’s common for people to dress in brand new clothes. They often visit family and friends, in order to exchange gifts and well-wishes. For the Chinese people, as well as the Aulacese people, performing a lion dance is an important tradition; as it’s believed that lions bring good fortune, and chases away negative spirits. Would you like to try writing the character “Fu” (good fortune) in Chinese calligraphy? … Apart from writing Spring couplets in calligraphy, you can also try to make special red lanterns for decoration. Food also plays a major role during Lunar New Year. Food brings family and friends, both young and old, together to enjoy not only eating but also enjoying one another’s company. We can make all these amazing dishes vegan, and enjoy them all! My wish is to have more people eat plant-based food, so that all the animals will be happy too.

In our bee family, we share what we are good at with one another, because it feels great when we give and receive. We may be tiny compared to the rest of the animal kingdom, but we surely have a big job to do: pollination. We pollinate the flowers of crops and fruit trees so they can bear fruit. Without us, there wouldn’t be any fruits and seeds, the plants wouldn’t be able to reproduce, animals wouldn’t have any food, and many people would go hungry. Because of this decline, harvests have been smaller in recent years, meaning less food for both animals and humans. The good news is that there are ways to help bolster the population of bees. For example, you can grow a garden that’s bee-friendly, right in your own backyard. Plant-based foods are the healthiest for the human body. Best of all, fruit and vegetables have seeds, and each seed can grow into a whole new plant if given the chance. You can share or swap extra seeds with friends and neighbors and enjoy the fruit of one another’s labor later on.

Today, I’m going to share with you a story titled “The North Wind and the sun.” “Sun, do you see that traveler wearing a cloak? I propose a contest to resolve our dispute once and for all! The first one to remove the cloak off of his back is the strongest of all!” Despite the strong force of the Wind, the man didn’t take off his cloak, but held on to it even tighter. In the end, the Sun, by offering warmth and comfort, made the man willingly and happily take off his cloak. It’s just like in our lives, sometimes we try to force things to happen and it doesn’t always end well, often distancing us from other people. On the contrary, when we show love and acceptance, people open themselves up to him. Such is the law of “love expands, fear contracts.” With the power of love and understanding, the Korean leaders eventually signed a peace treaty in April, 2018. This proves that the gentle way is actually a form of strength that can produce positive results. Since our story today involves the wind, let’s make a toy that harnesses the wind! How about a pinwheel?

We are excited to have you join us today on Kids' Wonderland, a new addition to our Supreme Master Television programs this year. It's a place for kids and adults with young hearts to go on adventures, learn new things and have fun together! Now let's jump on a magic carpet and travel to India for story time. Today, we present one of those stories, called "The Monkey and the Peas." "O mighty King, the monkey just showed us what greed can bring us. Instead of appreciating what he already had, he became greedy for a little gain and ended up with nothing." Hearing the wise words of the counsellor, the king vowed to always remember the lesson from the monkey and the peas, and be grateful for everything God has given him. Do you know where oxygen comes from? We all know greenery is important, but in the past 20 years, we’ve lost lots of trees. Do you know why? There are many reasons. If we do not eat animals, we can save lots of trees! Another reason is that we have been using trees to make paper. If we reduce paper use, we can also save trees! To save paper, we can do the 3 Rs: reduce, recycle and reuse.
