|Supreme Master Ching Hai is a world-renowned
spiritual teacher, artist, and humanitarian, whose loving assistance
extends beyond all cultural boundaries. Born in central Âu Lạc
(Vietnam), Supreme Master Ching Hai studied in Europe and
worked there for the Red Cross. She soon realized that suffering
exists in all corners of the globe, and her yearning to find a remedy
became the foremost goal in her life. She was happily married at the
time to a German physician, and although it was a difficult decision
for both of them, her husband agreed to a separation. She then
embarked on a journey in search of spiritual enlightenment. Eventually,
in the Himalayas in India, she received from a true Master the
divine transmission of the inner Light and Sound, which she later
called the Quan Yin Method. After a period of diligent practice,
she attained the Great Enlightenment.
Soon after her return from the Himalayas, at the earnest request of those around her, Supreme Master Ching Hai shared the Quan Yin Method with others, encouraging them to look within to find their own divine greatness. Before long, invitations arrived from the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa for Supreme Master Ching Hai to give lectures.
Supreme Master Ching Hai’s compassionate heart has also been reflected in her meticulous care for the less fortunate in different circumstances. The funding generated from her artistic creations has enabled the support of her mission of comforting God’s children in times of need.
More recently, Supreme Master Ching Hai has authored books that have become #1 international bestsellers, namely The Birds in My Life, The Dogs in My Life, and The Noble Wilds. These volumes reveal many insights into the deep emotions and thoughts of our treasured animal co-inhabitants, highlighting their gracious spirit and unconditional love.
Wishing to acknowledge others for their actions and influence toward developments of goodness in the world, Supreme Master Ching Hai founded the Shining World Leadership Award in March 2006. Since then, she has also established other prestigious awards, such as Shining World Compassion Award, Shining World Hero and Heroine Awards, Shining World Honesty Award, Shining World Protection Award, Shining World Intelligence Award, and Shining World Invention Award. This honor is bestowed on individuals, nations, and organizations – such as the 2nd President of the Republic of Slovenia, Dr. Janez Drnovšek, Dr. Jane Goodall, and Save the Children – whose exemplary works have significantly contributed to the harmony, beauty, and sustainability of our Earth.
Supreme Master Ching Hai is among notable pioneers in our society today who wisely and courageously express concern about climate change. In fact, for more than 20 years, she has talked about preserving the environment. She catapulted the Alternative Living and SOS global warming campaigns to promote a benevolent lifestyle without animal products. “Be Veg, Go Green, Save the Planet” is now a well-known motto that originated from Supreme Master Ching Hai.
In our era, Supreme Master Ching Hai is truly a selflessly dedicated individual, tirelessly helping world citizens create a bright future for our beloved planet.
