Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Lunar New Year Wishes, Feb. 11, 2021

On Lunar New Year’s Eve, February 11, 2021, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai graciously sent scrumptious dishes, cakes, goodies and gifts to the Supreme Master Television team members.Later in the evening, Master took precious time from Her intensive meditation retreat for our world to kindly read us stories She translated into English from “A Treasury of Jewish Folklore” compiled by Nguyễn Ước. They recounted Adam and Eve’s exile from the Garden of Eden and their subsequent struggles on Earth. Master also shared Her compassionate Lunar New Year wishes for all beings.Tonight is New Year’s Eve. Actually, first of all, I wanted to wish all the people in the world, including us, a better new year, a better year ahead. I wish all of you, the planet's people and all beings on this beautiful planet, a better year ahead. That there is no more worry. No more fear. No more oppression. No more terrifying each other. No more criticizing each other. No more scheming each other. No more killing each other, either to gain something or to eat. Just being contented with the food that God naturally provides like when Adam came down. Hes said cultivate, farming, organic. Yes. I’m sure it was organic. So I wish all of you a better year ahead. Not just the Lunar New Year, but a better year.And as we get older, we should be wiser, kinder and more loving. More compassionate. More tolerance. More helpful to each other. And that’s what I wish. (Thank You, Master.) And we also wish that these pandemics should disappear soon. (Yes.) Looks like it’s so clever, it keeps manifesting different kinds of strategy and forms. So humans keep chasing them forever like this. I just hope that it will get better. I hope humans get better, then everything will get better. That is the cause. That is the real cause of all the trouble. We are the cause of trouble.Most Benevolent Master, our deep gratitude for always watching over us and every being with so much Love, Compassion and Mercy. We sincerely pray that all of Your Lunar New Year wishes soon come true and may You have much peace, joy and excellent health in this Year of the Ox. May the Mighty Godses always protect Master.For the full broadcast of this conference with Supreme Master Ching Hai, please tune in to Between Master and Disciples at a later date.

The Snake Inside Humans, Feb. 18, 2021

00:04:01

The Snake Inside Humans, Feb. 18, 2021

On February 18, 2021, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, still in the midst of an intensive meditation retreat for our world, reserved precious time to kindly read another story to the Supreme Master Television team. Titled the “Gate of Heaven,” it is about the ancient Macedonian ruler Alexander the Great and his attempt to enter the Garden of Eden. Master graciously translated the tale into English from “A Treasury of Jewish Folklore” compiled by Nguyễn Ước. Afterwards, She lovingly answered questions from team members, including one about the snake, which represents the negative power that tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.(Master,) Yes. (now that You’ve locked away maya, should the snake have less influence on people’s mentality?)The snake is now inside the humans. That is the problem. After millions of millions of thousands, hundreds of thousands of years, the snake has infiltrated in the human system already. Maya is an extra, external force that makes it more difficult to resist. But maya is gone; that’s a less extra burden only. The snake is still inside. The poison is still there, lingering. It’s very difficult to take out.Master addressed how some people in politics focus on harming the opposition rather than governing.Some politicians they have to go to the church to show people that they are religious. But that is not real in their hearts. (Yes, Master.) Because if they really do that, they would not go on so disgustingly with vengeance, fake accusations and using all means to defeat their opponents even though the opponents are already on their knees.Lost everything; already have nothing and still continue to want to beat them down. Not just verbally, but physically and using the court and using their position, using their privilege, power to pursue to the end, to whatever end, and like no end, just to beat the opponent so that they will never exist anymore in the political arena. And that is really despicable.You see that? Yes. (Yes, Master.) You see the snake within humans or not? (Yes.) Now you know. You know very well if you read the news, you understand what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.)So I think the other party, the opposition party, should be careful and behave themselves properly. Really think of the suffering people. Really work for the people. Really think of the way to help them. Not just to enjoy your power and privilege and whoever dies, don’t care. Then not only God will punish you, but people will also, in some way, even though they have less power. But the power of people is strong. If it keeps brewing up, then it will be mighty and unstoppable.Most Merciful Master, we cannot express how much Your guidance and Grace as well as the infinite Love that You shower upon on all beings daily mean to our world. We pray that humans now embrace only goodness and purity so that we may realize our true unconditional love and compassion within. May Master always enjoy safety and the best of health, in the protection of the Highest Heavens.For the full broadcast of this conference with Supreme Master Ching Hai, please tune in to Between Master and Disciples at a later date.

Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Reminder: Take All Precautions for COVID-19, Jan. 30, 2021

Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Reminder: Take All Precautions for COVID-19, Jan. 30, 2021

Out of loving concern for the comfort and health of the Supreme Master Television team, on January 30, 2021, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai took precious time from Her intensive meditation retreat for our world to call and check if all members are warm and well during this winter. During the call, Master graciously answered questions about the COVID-19 crisis, particularly the new variants circulating, and other topics.I told you many times before, at least two times, that there are people who are asymptomatic. (Yes.) Even though they carry the virus of COVID-19, you don’t see it. They don’t know it because they are asymptomatic. The virus doesn’t attack their system, doesn’t attack their body. But they carry it and they could transmit up to 70 days. And carrying it around. Imagine how many people they can infect, (Yes, Master.) for 70 days long.Therefore, I say you can never be seriously protected enough for yourself. Do protect yourself. Do listen to the government guidance, and listen to my advice about how to take care of yourself when you go out and when you come back home after. (Yes, Master.) I keep talking about that, maybe you guys get bored. Master is talking about the same thing all the time. But I cannot emphasize enough. Now you know that. Now you know. (Yes, Master.) Especially this new variant. It came from South Africa and in England. Now it’s everywhere else as well, many places in the world already. These variants. We don’t know how they get there; they just got there. Or maybe the virus just mutated itself. (Yes, Master.) So even the government of England for example, they make billboards everywhere saying the variants spread very fast. Please stay home.The new variants, they spread very, very fast, 70, 80% faster than the usual one. That is the most scary thing. People are suffering everywhere because they are suffocated. Some people even committed suicide. Some children they cannot bear it. They die. They kill themselves also.It’s suffering to no end for all the people. Just forsake the meat and things will turn to the better immediately. And they don’t do it. My God. Heavens want to help, but They must have the condition to help. We don’t create that condition. We have the power to create any condition in alignment with Heaven. (Yes, Master.) And then we can synchronize with Heaven in order to make the world a better place. Even a Heaven on Earth.Our deepest gratitude, Most Benevolent Master, for Your compassionate and wise advice on safeguarding our health, especially with the coronavirus’s new variants, and continuously reminding the world that the paramount solution for ending the pandemic is the vegan diet. We join Master in praying for World Vegan to be swiftly achieved and are eternally grateful for Your care that immeasurably blesses humanity and our animal co-inhabitants. May Master always be shielded by the Highest Heavens.For the full broadcast of this conference with Supreme Master Ching Hai, please tune in to Between Master and Disciples at a later date.

It’s Love That Counts, March 26, 2021

00:37:13

It’s Love That Counts, March 26, 2021

Host: On Friday, March 26, 2021, our Most Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, while still in an intensive meditation retreat for our world, graciously shared of Her precious time by calling the Supreme Master Television team members and lovingly reading a story titled “The Phoenix” from “A Treasury of Jewish Folklore” compiled by Nguyễn Ước. Prior to it, Master kindly answered questions which team members had on a variety of topics, together with some current ones concerning the Christian clergy. (Master, in recent news, it’s reported that the Vatican is re-affirming its stance against gay marriage, stating, “God cannot bless sin.” It has ruled out any possibility of same-sex couples having a Christian blessing on their marriage. Master, would You be able to share Your opinion on this? Is it really true that this is a sin and that God cannot bless such a marriage?) Human stuff again. According to Leviticus, a man should not do anything like in the loving kind of… having physical relationship with another man as if he does it with a woman. It’s one of those sins that God has conveyed to the people at that time. But aren’t we all sinners? (Yes, Master.) Even if we didn’t sin today, maybe we sinned yesterday. (Yes, Master.) Even if we did not sin in the flesh, we sin in the thought. (Yes, Master.) So we all have to pray for forgiveness. (Yes.) Actually, when Adam and Eve, our foreparents, ate the apple, the sin had already begun. (Yes, Master.) That’s why God asked them to leave Eden. (Yes, Master.) Just eating an apple, you lost your paradise. So, what to talk about any other thing? (Yes.) In the Kṣitigarbha Sutra of Buddhism, it’s also stated that He observed the beings on this planet, anything they think, anything they do, any little movement, any little thought, is all sinful. So we are confirmed now that we all sin. We’re all sinners. But what to do? I think God is all forgiving as long as we repent and be humble in our heart. A marriage between two beings is not just about physical pleasure or sexual… I normally am shy to talk about that word, but I’m old enough now, I guess I should not be so shy anymore. A marriage is not just about sexual stuff. It’s about companionship. It’s about friendship. It’s about support for each other in times of happiness as well as sorrow. In this sense, the people of the same sex, saying lesbian or gay people, they can get married. And the thing is, it’s the hormones that rage inside them that sometimes cause them to have more intimate physical relationships. (Yes, Master.) But after a long while, after long years, they just kind of taper off. After a while, like many married couples, they grow old until 90-plus, 100 years, they are not having any physical intimacy anymore. (Yes, Master.) (You are right, Master.) But they still love, love each other, so much, so much like the best friends in the world. And that’s what marriage should be. (Yes, Master.) It is about love. (Right.) (Yes.) So you can bless love. And do not think about these physical things that men and women, gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, alike are forced into due to the hormones raging in their bodies. (Yes, Master.) Then, anyone can bless any marriage. Because a marriage is like a sacred promise from one human being to another so that they will be forever together under any circumstances. It’s about loyalty. It’s about deep, genuine friendship, and companionship in this lonely planet. Even though we have more than seven billion humans now, (Yes, Master.) but we are lonely as a human. So I think, if it was up to me, I would bless them because they love each other. (Yes.) And love is important. Anything else is a secondary side effect. (Yes, Master.) Just like you take medicine because you need it, otherwise you would die or you would be languishing daily with this disease. So you take it with the side effect. So, about the blessing, it’s to make the couple happy (Yes.) and feeling assured that their marriage, their loyalty to each other, their love and commitment to each other are shared with someone else and witnessed and recognized, and being happy with them. (Yes, Master.) That’s why married people throw a big party and everything, (Yes.) (Right.) so they can share their happiness with other people. (Yes.) So if I’m a priest, I would bless them. And whatever sin, I will take it. I’m a sinner anyway. I don’t feel I’m better than anyone else. Just as Jesus said, “Who among you who has never sinned, then you can throw the stone (Right.) on that woman who is supposed to be condemned as a sinner.” (Yes.) And nobody threw any stones. (Yes, Master.) Maybe God said that, “You should not do this, you should not do that,” but we did everything already and we are still doing it. So what’s a little bit more with the gay couple, or lesbian couple? Let them be happy, wish them well. (Yes, Master.) Don’t you think so? (Yes, Master. Absolutely.) And one more happy couple, the world is a happier place. (Yes, Master.) At least this is what we can do. We cannot do anything to make them happy because it’s their life, but we can wish them well. (Yes, Master.) And we can say, “We bless you.” And God, even if Hes doesn’t agree to that, oh, that’s God’s business. Don’t you think so? (Yes, Master.) “I bless you in the name of God, but if God doesn’t want to give that blessing, that’s Hiers business. I am a human with you here, on this lonely sojourn, and so much trouble, so much temptation, and so much weakness and pollution into the human mind, body, and spirit. So at least, I as a human, I will bless you, I bless all of you, sinners or not.” Whoever thinks they are not sinners, they should think twice. Are we not here for sinners? (Yes, Master.) We are not here only for the virtuous. If the whole world are virtuous people, we don’t need any churches, we don’t need any temples, we don’t need any monks, we don’t need any nuns, we don’t need any… nothing, we don’t need any blessings. (Yes, Master.) (Understand, Master.) That’s why Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva, the Saint, He went to hell, (Yes, Master.) to stay with the sinners and help them whatever He can, because Heavens don’t need us, do they? (No, Master.) So, if we are not here for sinners, what are we here for? As monks and nuns. So, I am trying to help whomever I can, in my capacity, if they let me. (Thank You, Master.) That’s the way we should be, as a human, to each other, even. (Yes, Master.) So even if I don’t have the authority to bless any – I don’t do any wedding stuff anyway – but if I can, I bless them from God, from God Almighty, immense loving kindness, forgiveness, and always there for Hiers children, no matter what. (Thank You, Master.)(Master, why are there so many sex scandals involving the clergy in Christianity?) I guess it’s that, you know like… In Buddhism we don’t often hear of that. Hardly any, right? (No, Master.) Buddhist monks and monastery and Buddhist nuns, rarely hear anything. (Right.) (No, Master.) The reason may be because they are more strict. And Buddhist monks and nuns, they realize what they’re doing. (Yes.) They fear karma. (Yes.) The reason may be that in the Bible, many of the karmic consequences have been cut. (Oh.) Doesn’t say there is a consequence a lot. But in Buddhism, for example, it explains very, very detailed and far, far, far to the horizon about consequences of what and what and what and what. The Buddha even tells you which kind of business is meritorious; which kind of business is bringing you to hell. (Yes, Master.) Because the Buddha lived long. Our Lord Jesus, He lived only thirty-three something years according to the history. (Yes, Master.) And I think the diet has something to do with it also. (Yes.) The meat and the wine (Yes.) which the Christians can drink and eat freely. And that doesn’t help them to temper the inner fleshly desire of humans that we are made with, that we are installed inside without our consent even. You are born, that’s it, and you are a man, and then you will desire women, mostly. Or you’ll desire another man. And this hormone inside just makes you like that. Makes you crazy also. So if you don’t have a very profound teaching and a solid ground set of rules or regulations, emphasized again and again, and then you don’t have a true goal in your mind, then it’s difficult to control the chemicals inside your body that make you thus. It should be more emphasized. (Yes, Master.) So thus, you remember the story of Ananda. He was bewitched by the powerful incantation, (Yes.) the most powerful in the world, to seduce him by a most beautiful woman. He cannot control himself but he can pray to Buddha to come and help him. (Yes.) (Yes, Master.) He still knows that that is “no-no,” that is not the thing that you should do with a woman. Should not be with any woman. Because the Buddha emphasized that if you’re a monk, you look only one meter ahead of you. (Yes.) So you can see if any insect, that you don’t step on them only. You don’t look left, you don’t look right. You don’t look at anybody. And they take 250 precepts as a monk, as a high priest or high nun. They’re called bhikkhu and bhikkhuni. They are a higher order of monks. Not the novice. (Yes, Master.) And they vow to keep it. Or they would defrock and go out and be like ordinary people again. (Yes.) If they feel the urge to do that, then they honestly will defrock themselves or tell their Master that “I cannot stay.” (Yes, Master.) Some of my so-called nuns and monks also, they do that. They say they cannot stay, they have to go out and then they married and have children and all that. (Yes, Master.) Even Saint Paul doesn’t accuse them. He said, “If you can, then stay single like me. If not, then you can marry.” Because all the Saints understand the weakness of humans and the chemical makeup of their bodies. (Yes.) (Yes, Master.) There are truly no sinners in this world, according to what I’m thinking. (Right.) Because they are only victims. They are victims, victims and victims, victims everywhere. (Yes, Master.) Victims of ignorance. Victims of the makeup of their own physical body that is before they were born already. (Yes, Master.) A priest or a nun, they are also human. And if there’s no control, no strict regulation, and supervising, then they also fail. (Yes, Master.) They will fail, now or later, or some days, or sometime in their life. And then they try to get up again, control again, but they cannot. The wine and the meat and all that, it doesn’t help you to reach your goal as a holy person. Very difficult. That’s why all religions forbid meat and wine. (Yes, Master.)“It is best to ABSTAIN FROM EATING ANY MEAT, OR DRINKING ANY WINE, or from any other activity which might cause a brother to fall away, or to be scandalized, or to weaken.” ~ Romans, 14:21 Holy Bible “Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, 'Test thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days, and let them give us pulse [vegetables] to eat and water to drink. Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the youths who eat of the portion of the king’s meat. And as thou seest, deal with thy servants.' So he consented to them in this matter, and tested them ten days. And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the youths who ate the portion of the king’s meat. Thus Melzar TOOK AWAY THE PORTION OF THEIR MEAT AND THE WINE THAT THEY SHOULD DRINK, AND GAVE THEM PULSE [VEGETABLES].” ~ Daniel, Holy Bible “Do not be among those who give themselves to wine-drinking, or among those who make themselves full with meat.” ~ Proverbs, Holy Bible “Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them.” ~ 1 Corinthians, Holy BibleI mean animal products, alcohol, and intoxicants. All these kinds of things are ruining your brain, your intellect, and your reason capability. You can’t control too much, if that kind of evil even added onto your system. And also, they rely on Jesus. They think Jesus died already for all the sinners, so they can go on sinning. It’s not like that. No, no, no. He died for His disciples, for His followers and for the people at that time whoever believed in Him. But after Jesus is gone, somebody else has to take up the cross. (Yes, Master.) That’s why Jesus said, “I am the Light in the world as long I am in the world.” He doesn’t say, “I’ll be the Light forever for you, for next generation, forever, forever.” No. He said, “I am the Light for the world as long I am in the world.” That’s why life after life, we have different Masters coming into our planet, into our world, to help us, to teach us again. So, in my own observation, I think the Buddhist monks, even the Tibetan monks, they eat meat also, but they have so many teachings to learn. They have no time for their mind to be used by any of the devious influences of the world. They have to learn by heart many sutras. They have to do many mudras, meaning the special gesture of the fingers and the hands. (Yes.) So many things to learn, so that so busy, busy. So they all have to concentrate on that, all day long. And it was a strong tradition, national religion. So, even the Tibetan people, they eat meat, but they don’t eat as much. I don’t think they drink wine. They’re not allowed to drink alcohol. It’s very clearly stated. In even the normal five percepts, you don’t use any intoxicants, including alcohol. (Yes, Master.) But the Christians, they are more liberal, they can drink wine. And they eat meat and all kinds of things, anything, anything. And there are not enough teachings for them – just one Bible. (Yes.) Jesus did not live long enough to leave them a lot of guidance. And they’re not allowed to study any other’s doctrine. (Right.) It’s like heresy to them. So the young, idealistic priest, with his able, strong, beautiful body; and the hormones surging inside with not a lot to do; (Yes.) and freedom to experience this and that and others; and the false belief that Jesus will rescue them, even if they sin. (Yes, Master.) This is a very false concept. You don’t have to always be in the Catholic denomination. There are also other branches of Christianity, they also marry, have children and still be a missionary or minister. (Yes, Master.) And nowadays women can also, some. (Yes.) So, if you really cannot hold onto that, then be honest. Because God is watching. Heaven is watching. God is forgiving, but you cannot continue mocking Hiers rules and teachings like that. (Yes, Master.) Maybe one time Hes forgives, but you have to be really humbly repentant. You have to repent knowing that it’s really sinful and don’t just do it like normal, like watching a movie, or like you are a normal person outside, you can marry. You can also marry as a gay, nowadays. So, why don’t just be honest? Defrock yourself. Go out, find a lover or something. (Yes, Master.) Even the law nowadays protects you. As a gay person, or as a lesbian person. It’s all open now. Even celebrities, they openly married same sex. (Yes, Master.) Nobody says anything. People support and understand their love, and understand their need to be with each other – as company, as friend – the trusted friend in life. (Yes, Master.) Because in this life, it’s lonely, lonely. You grow up, and then you have to have so much responsibility. And nobody really understands you, and you cannot talk to anybody. You can talk to your parents, but different things. (Yes, Master.) You come home from work, you want some people there with you to share your hard day, (Yes.) and just to laugh with each other, to talk about nonsense things, just to ease your mind, you know, (Yes.) so that you can survive on this planet. (Yes, Master.) Because it’s really darn hard to survive here. (Right. True. Yes, Master.) For anybody. (Yes, Master. True.) So on top of that, if somebody also condemns you, says you are a sinner, sinful like that, my God, I don’t know how they live. (Right.) It’s really very harsh on them, on their mental, on their psyche, on their heart, on their emotions. (Yes.) They will feel terrible. In the old times and now even, the Jain people, in Jainism, (Yes, Master.) the Lord Mahavira teaches them they have to wear the mask just like you are doing now. (Yes.) The whole world becomes Jain. It’s also good like that and it’s less attractive, so maybe the priest will be less tempted to sin. (Yes.) And that is really a sin because when you are a man of the cloth, you wear that holy garment, meaning you are dedicated to God completely all your life, with all your heart, all your soul, you forget the whole world already, and you know that and you vow celibacy and if you did this kind of thing, especially to the minor boys, same sex… Because mostly they have altar boys, and the priests are mostly men up to now. (Yes.) That is really sin. If we talk about sin, let’s talk about that. (Yes, Master.) Not the gay people, because they cannot help it. They are too lonely and feel burdened and feel sad already by the society’s judgment, by their own complexity, that they don’t understand why they are like this. They feel not normal already, they feel burdened already. So if we cannot do anything to make them feel more confident, happy and normal, then don’t hurt them, (Yes, Master.) don’t hurt their feelings. If we cannot help, then don’t harm, that’s what I say. (Yes, Master.) You don’t have to bless their marriage, you just refuse them quietly. (Yes, Master.) Don’t have to make a norm in the society and condemn one-sixth of the population. One in six humans are trans, you know that? (Wow, that’s a lot.) I mean trans, meaning gay or lesbian or others, or bisexual. So, we don’t condemn one-sixth of the planet. One-sixth is official, maybe more because some people, they don’t recognize their own sexual orientation until later on. (Yes, Master.) Even past their maturity, they don’t know. And I just feel very, very sorry for them. My heart feels very aching for their situation, because it’s not their fault to be born like that. I told you many times already, between being a man and a woman, you go through this stage if you have not completely been doing all the manly stuff when you were a man. Then you are going stage-wise to be a woman. So you come in between as a lesbian or a gay. But if you are completely well and have a lot of merit, then you just jump from being a man last life to be a woman in this lifetime, (Right.) (Yes, Master.) and no need to go through that transitional station. (Yes, Master.) They are just in transitional station. So, if God wants to accuse gay people – I mean the same-sex people – to love each other, and like if I’m a priest and Hes forbid me to bless them because they sin, then I would say to God, “I would still do it and You put the sin on me.” Because how can you as a human, have a human heart and knowing the emotion and knowing the hardship in this life, put another yoke on another human being, make them feel more miserable, more destitute, (Yes, Master.) more desperate, more lonely?! My God! Isn’t God the one who made them this way! Or who made them? You think the devil made them? (No, Master.) No! So God will forgive me if I forgive the gay people’s sin. But I don’t think they sin more than anyone else − even less. We are sinning because we are destroying our planet. (Yes, Master.) We are sinning because we are torturing other humans and bombing them, killing them, (Yes.) innocent bystanders, for any reason. And we are sinning because we’re torturing, oppressing the helpless animals every second of our life. (Yes, Master.) Now talking about sin, then let’s talk more sin. (Yes, Master.) For money, you kill people. For fame and position, you oppress opponents, you blame them for things they did not do, you wrongly accuse them. You give fake news all over the nation or the planet so that people will hate them, not vote for them, or harass them or harass their followers. These are not sinning? Then what are they then? In a big, big, big, huge scale. (Yes, Master.) The gay people, they only love one person. Even if they sin, they only sin small scale (Yes, Master.) compared to the people who are bombing, killing other nations’ citizens, no matter what reason. (Yes, Master.) And then killing innocent animals every day, (Yes.) the ones who have no defense, no one to protect them, no law, nothing. Even they make law themselves, they say, “Oh, the citizens cannot oppress animals, cannot harass them, cannot torture them, cannot cause them pain or anxiety or anything at all.” But what are they doing every day in the slaughterhouse?! (Yes, Master.) Tell me! And all the lawmakers know that! Or don’t they!? (They know, Master, they know.) Yes! From the president to the policeman to the sweeper on the street. The lawmakers made them for them, but including the lawmakers themselves! (Yes, Master.) If you make a law, you expect that to be followed. (Yes.) Because the government said, “Oh, you don’t steal, and if somebody because they are hungry or poor or has no job, has to go steal some food or some money to survive, then he goes to jail. Does he not? (Yes, Master.) And how about the law – not harassing animals, not cause them pain and suffering, not causing them fear and all that? Nobody… excuse me, I’m just too, I’m just freaking out, talking about raw emotion. Sorry. I think you don’t think I’m a Master anymore, I’m talking like a… I don’t know what, politician or something. It really freaks me out. It really hurts me. (Understand, Master.) Don’t bother cutting this. Let them see. (Yes, Master.) It’s all real, I’m all real. (Yes.) I don’t have anything to hide or to play theater or anything. So, you see what I’m saying now? (Yes, Master.) If we want to talk about sin, well, we can make a list of it or books about them. (Right. Yes, Master.) Why trampling upon those poor, helpless gay couples? All they want is just the loving company for their life, to have them, taking care of each other in times of need, and to share happiness when they are joyful together. Even if it’s a sin, I would ask God to overlook it. Because everybody else sins more than they do. (Yes.) What do you think? (Yes, Master.) (We agree.) I feel sorry, I could cry for them. Can you imagine how they feel, (Yes, Master.) these people? (Yes.) It’s still shunned by many. (Yes, Master.) Feeling they are not normal, they are sick or something. It’s not fair. If God wants to blame, then Hes has to blame Hirmself. That’s what I think. I’m sorry if God wants to put me to hell or something, I say the truth. You accept it. Even if God tells me not to bless them and I’m a priest, I would. (Yes, Master.) I cannot give them more pain than they’re already in. Don’t you think so? (Yes, Master.) Yeah, I cannot trample upon somebody who is already almost on the ground. (Yes, Master.) I don’t know if God said anything like that, or somebody added it on. (Yes.) Because why say only about men? Why not about women Woman lesbians, they’re also together. (Yes, Master.) That’s not fair. I don’t think God said anything like that. I think maybe added on, later on. (Yes, Master.) Or somebody for personal purposes. I think I abolish this, if God permits. Even if God doesn’t, I would like that to be abolished, this sin or law or whatever that is, because it’s not fair. (Yes, Master.) Sin is the one who knows that he should not do it. In his position as a priest, and still harassing, molesting an innocent, helpless teenager, minor, who is looking upon him as a god, as the representative of God, as a holy person, as a teacher for the blurry road that he’s treading on every day in this world; he looks up on the priests, the monks, as his master, as someone who is wise and holy. And if he turns around, and betrays that trust from an innocent, and even causes pain and suffering, psychologically, mentally, physically to that little minor, then that is a sin! (Yes, Master.) It’s also clear in Christianity because in Leviticus, it says that you don’t do that anyway. So, if they believe in the Bible, as a Holy Bible, then they shouldn’t do that. Especially forcing the minors who are vulnerable, helpless, and don’t dare to tell anybody. Probably shocked them for whole life. (Yes.) And stunt their growth. Or smashing their faith, forever. So that is a real sin. (Yes, Master.) Anything else, I think it’s better just don’t talk about it. Oh, I just… All people would feel like it’s all fake, all fake, it’s all fake, and false, and… My God, what are they doing with Jesus’ teaching? Oh, my God! They make an empire out of it, for gain and fame, and respect, and privilege. That is a sin. (Yes, Master.) Not a couple who love each other and want to be together all their lives and just ask them to be witnesses, and to bless them. If they even have any blessing, at all. (Yes, Master.) Otherwise, if they are sinners, then a sinner blesses a sinner, what’s the use of that? (Yes. Right. Yes, Master.) I’m very angry inside. I’m an angry Master. (No, Master.) I’m a very angry vegan Master. When it comes to injustice and the suffering of children, and animals. Because they are helpless. (Yes, Master.) The adults, they can fend for themselves, but children, they don’t know what to do. (Right, Master. Yes.) They probably never dare say to anybody. So many of these incidents never come to light. (Yes, Master.) Only a little bit recently, and the church didn’t do much. Symbolically here and there. My God! Oh, may God forgive us all, Ultimate Master, God Almighty, forgive all of us. Please. Because we also don’t know what to do with each other, with cases like this. We just have to pray for forgiveness and not accusing any of them. I’m not accusing. I’m just feeling tremendously painful for the children. Imagine if it’s you. (Yes, Master.) You’re a kid only, you never knew anything like this, and you are taught to respect these priests and monks or nuns, whatever. And they sell you! (Yes.) They abuse you, they molest you, and they sell you even. (Yes.) You read the news. I don’t want to talk anymore. (Yes, Master.) My God, make a business out of an orphanage, out of the orphan boys! (Yes.) Or girls. What wicked evil! (Unimaginable.) Talking about satan and devils, and all that. Where are they? So when we talk about sinning in this world, there is no surprise. The only solution is forgive whom you can. Forgive what you can – especially those who don’t harm anyone, they just love each other. No matter if a man loves a woman, or a man loves a man. It’s love that counts. (Yes, Master.) Host: Most Compassionate Master, our gratefulness for Your endless empathy and protection for the defenseless, as You remind us that love and forgiveness are always the answer. Through Your inspiration, may we humans learn to understand and feel for one another, thus seeing the true way to live as caring children of God. May Master always have excellent health, peace and safety, in the Mighty Heavens’ Magnificence. For the full broadcast of this conference with Supreme Master Ching Hai, please tune in to Between Master and Disciples at a later date.

Appreciate Good Leaders, March 10, 2021

Host: On March 10, 2021, our Most Cherished Supreme Master Ching Hai once again kindly took time from Her intensive meditation retreat for our world to read and translate a story from “A Treasury of Jewish Folklore” compiled by Nguyễn Ước. It concerned the venerated enlightened Master Confucius’ encounter with a 7-year-old boy named Hạng Thác (Xiang Tuo) who dared to debate Him. Before reading the interesting tale, Master answered questions about political developments in the United States, particularly concerning the Governor of California, The Honorable Gavin Newsom, who is a Shining World Leadership Award for Loving Care laureate. Recently, there has been a campaign to initiate a process for the citizens to remove him from office through a statewide recall vote.(Master, we researched his record as governor and did not understand why some want him out. It seems like he has done many good things while in office for the state.) OK.(For example, for COVID-related things, Governor Newsom: - Signed a $2.6 billion bill to extend a moratorium on renter evictions and provide rent relief.) Yes.(- Signed a US$7.6 billion economic stimulus package, including: US$2 billion in small business relief grants, and US$600 stimulus checks for 5.7 million low-income citizens.) Wow!(For the animals, he: - Signed bills making California the first state to ban the sale and manufacture of new fur products.) Wow!(- Signed a bill to bar most animals from circus performances.)(- A wildlife crossing is to be built over a major Southern Californian highway. The fundraising has reached US$18 million.) Woah. Just for the wild animals? (Yes, Master.) Wow. What a good guy!(- He launched Project Roomkey, which has moved more than 22,000 people from the streets and shelters into motel rooms during the COVID pandemic. So the advocates for the homeless say the program largely succeeded.)(- He also signed the Families Over Fees Act to end the collection of criminal administrative fees like probation fees and fees for public defenders.) Oh, very compassionate guy. (Yes, Master.) Very caring and loving. (The bill will lift an estimated US$16 billion of largely uncollectible debt from low-income communities.) Woah.So, why do they want to get rid of him? Who did? Why? It must be somebody who doesn’t like Democrats again. (The voters didn’t like the way he handled the COVID situation.) Like what? (He was very strict in closing schools and businesses,) Yes. (so that made those businesses very angry. He had a very slow vaccine roll out.)Closed down and mask and stuff like that. (Yes, Master.) And then slow in rolling out the vaccine. I still read some news that people are still reporting about the deaths by the vaccination, or immediately after vaccination, and some other unpleasant side effects. (Yes, Master.) So, maybe he was hesitant just to protect his people. (Yes, Master.) It’s very difficult to really decide on such things when you are not sure. (Yes.) Because it’s concerning people’s life and death. Ah, my God. I wouldn’t want to be a governor or prime minister or president or anything. They take you for an iron statue.What else? (He also attended a restaurant party for a lobbyist while the state was in lockdown. So people thought that was not fair.) Oh, wow. For what I know, many other government officials, big-time, they also did that. Like the Scottish first minister, for example. (Yes.) (Yes, Master.) And they did not want to fire her, just for that. They just criticized and then she said “I know that was stupid.” Something like that. “I am kicking myself. And I am sorry.” That’s it and they forgave her. (Yes.) And she’s bigger than Newsom. (Yes, Master.) It’s a small mistake. It’s difficult to refuse your friend. Especially when that friend has been with you a long time and helping you a lot. Helping him, meaning helping his people. Also, many citizens also flout the COVID restrictions as well. (Yes.) They are just humans.So, they have three reasons to kick him out. The first is the restriction for COVID-19. (Yes, Master.) But many states do that! Many countries do that. And not just one time. Two times, three times. Everybody should read the news and know that. In England or everywhere. Not just America’s states. They do that, just to protect their citizens. New Zealand also, remember? And Australia also. Many countries, the whole country shut down. You know that. (Yes, Master.) So, I don’t know what they are talking about. Unless they really hate this good governor and want him out so that they can come up or they can vote for somebody else who is more favorable for their business. Selfish reasons. Or money reason. (Yes, Master.) And woe if he did not do the strict law, like other states or other countries, then they would also try to kick him out because he didn’t. (Yes, Master.)(There were some other, like his handling of the wildfires in California, homelessness problems, and lack of affordable housing. So, were just some general governing things that he is…) Accused of. (Yes.) Oh, man. I would resign if I was the Governor Newsom. I would just quit and go to Monaco or Cancun. Take his family there, enjoy his private life. But this guy, he genuinely wants to help the citizens. That’s why he bears all this. (Yes, Master.) He’s not there for power or fame or gain. That’s what I feel about him, according to what he did.Listen. Wildfire is everywhere. (Yes, Master.) Nowadays, they are more frequent and more devastating than ever. (Yes.) Why don’t people watch TV? Or watch Supreme Master Television. They will report all about that. They just… truly this is really troublemakers, these people. And they’re leading other people who are vulnerable, and who don’t read much of the news and watch TV. Nowadays there are more wildfires and devastating other disasters everywhere. (Right.) More than usual. (Yes, Master.) Yeah, yeah, yeah.Why blame the California governor alone? He cannot control this. It’s not in his control. Or is it? (No, Master.) No. Nobody can. And California is a dry state. And then any wind or anything or any Coca-Cola can or any piece of broken glass or any cigarette would cause it, because it’s a dry and very big state.OK, homeless. Homeless, they have it everywhere. But may be more in California because it’s warmer weather, very reasonable weather and not so damp. It’s dry. So the homeless people, mostly they stay there because it’s safer for them, more reasonable for them. But homeless, they have everywhere. I saw it even in Canada when I was there in Toronto. I saw it in Paris. I saw it in London. I saw it in every country that I have set foot on. You got that? (Yes, Master.) So, why blaming him? He has done a lot for the homeless, more than many other states that I know, or many other countries.(So Master, is it a good idea for the people to try to recall him? What do You think, Master?) No, not good. It would be a big mistake because I don’t know if they can find somebody as good as he. For what you have read just now… He’s a good boy. We should keep him, forever. (Yes, Master.)He really cares. He really cares. So, my God, all for the poor people and the helpless people and the vulnerable people and the safety of the animals. I mean, what more can you ask from a governor or anyone who is in power in the government? (Yes, Master.) Oh, my God. What are they doing to this poor, extraordinary, loving, good, excellent governor?But I do know, now that you ask me. I have just looked. And these are some of the zealous demons that cause the people to make trouble for him. (Oh.) (Wow!) I have just asked some of my Guards, my invisible Protectors, to take care of that. I said, “Drag them to hell.” (Wow!)Because if people are good, like good leaders, positive government officials, they will try to make trouble. (Yes, Master.) Same like President Trump. The same with the Governor Cuomo, the same. Also these… There are not many leftover. Well, there are many enough. Even just some thousands, or ten thousand are already big enough to make trouble everywhere. They just make things happen to these good ministers or governors. Now you know. (Yes.) It’s not only humans.Because even the blind people could see what the governor did for his state. In his position, the best he can do. Even for the poor wild animals, whom he cannot get any vote from. Can the animals vote for him? The wild animals, live in the forest. (Wish they could.) So that means, he allowed all that. That means he is a good boy. (Yes.)He is unconditional, caring and loving. I advise people to vote for him more, and don’t just blindly follow these oppositions who are influenced by demons. (Yes, Master.) It’s also not this opposition leading group’s fault. They are influenced. They are driving under the influence. Meaning, they are driving this case (Yes.) under the influence of the negative demons. So, I feel sorry for everybody, but to blame the governor and want him out, that is not enough reason. (Yes, Master.)So Governor Newsom is really a good man. He did his best that any human can do in his situation, in his capacity. I could give him another Shining World Leadership Award for Good Governor. Maybe we will do that. Not just for… Good, good, good. Me too. Me too, me too.Host: During the conference, a question was also asked regarding Master’s health.(Master, in a recent heartline on Noteworthy News, You said that You were having some pain due to constant work on the computers, in Your fingers and all through Your body. And…You are losing muscle. And do You still have this pain or is it getting better, Master?)Yeah. It’s better. (OK, Master.) It’s better like almost immediately. (Wow.)The pain in the body is because it’s inside the vein and inside the muscle. So it doesn’t go immediately yet, but it improved. So, I am sorry to make you worry. Maybe it’s the power of your prayers. I know you prayed for me, right, after that? (Yes, Master.) Yes, or maybe it’s the re-arrangement of my computer system. The reason I told that on the heartline is not because I wanted to. I was reluctant to do that. But I said that openly because I want other people to know. In case they have the same symptom, maybe they should change. (Yes, Master, understand.) Before it’s too late.Not that I wanted you to worry. Thank you, all of you, whoever did pray for me. But I said that so that the viewers may check, recognize their symptoms, and perhaps they change and it will help them. Because nowadays everybody is on computers. They cannot avoid it. Sometimes they have pain, but they didn’t think it’s the computer. They didn’t think that’s the radiation from the electromagnetic field. So, because I said that, maybe they rethink, (Yes, Master.) change and protect themselves. OK, my love? (Yes, thank You, Master.)Host: Most Caring Master, our deep appreciation for helping us to recognize and value our true good government leaders, while also protecting them spiritually for the sake of our world. We hope and pray that humanity embraces its chances for a brighter future by letting all the sincere and gentle-hearted leaders fulfill their noble mission of serving their co-citizens. May Master’s vision for a peaceful planet be smoothly realized, as we continue to pray for Her wellness and constant protection by the Highest Heavens.For the full broadcast of this conference with Supreme Master Ching Hai, please tune in to Between Master and Disciples at a later date.

Governing During the COVID-19 Crisis, March 3, 2021

Governing During the COVID-19 Crisis, March 3, 2021

HOST: On Wednesday, March 3, 2021, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai generously set aside some time from Her ongoing meditation retreat for the world, to call the Supreme Master Television team and graciously read stories from “A Treasury of Jewish Folklore” compiled by Nguyễn Ước, as well as to answer questions on a variety of topics including recent events in the United States. (Master, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has been in office since 2011, is embroiled in numerous scandals lately. It has been revealed that he did not disclose the true number of deaths in state nursing homes, 13,000-plus, and that a state attorney general report says that his administration undercounted the deaths by 50%-plus. Master, do You know why the first number was so low and then suddenly became so high?)Well, I’m not there. I am not there in America. So, I don’t have any proof for you. But things do happen. It’s not necessarily that people tried to hide. (Oh…) It was really utmost tragic for the families of the deceased. I cried a lot feeling what they feel!!You must know also in that situation or in that position, people are so shocked. In the beginning of the COVID, they probably have all kinds of different information that they don’t know how to deal with. Understand? (Yes.) So, they did what they think is the best. In the beginning, the symptoms were not clearly differentiated between this COVID and others such as a normal headache, or just a cold or seasonal flu, etc. They are not medical experts! And even the top experts gave many confusing and damaging advice. Told you already. You know!But for what I am thinking, is they did not try really to hide it or maybe just mismatching or misinformation, or too busy with many other things, so just didn’t know how to deal with the situation. So, being a governor, he never has to deal with these things. So maybe he just tells his subordinate, “OK, do what you think best, to protect people.” So the court has to decide then, according to the information and the details and evidence.This is karma of all the people, of the world people. You cannot blame the Governor alone. (Yes, Master.) Many countries, they took all kinds of measures, still, people are getting sick and dying. It could have been worse. Heaven’s helping a lot. Otherwise, many more people would have died. OK? (Yes, Master.) Right. What’s the other question? (Yes, Master.)(Furthermore, he has been accused of inappropriate behavior by three women occurring between 2016 and 2020. Two were former aides. An independent review will be launched. NY Attorney General Letitia James is choosing the investigation team instead of Judge Barbara Jones. Master, are You aware of these events and what are Your thoughts? Or if You were the judge, what would You have to say?)I don’t say anything because I am not the judge. But I will answer you because you asked me. Otherwise, you will sleep with it and then you will toss and turn with nightmares. By the way… Oh yes, I read the news, so I came across it. I came across these things. And I don’t know if it’s a big deal.They accuse him of like sexual harassment, is that correct? (Yes, Master.) Because inappropriate, improper behavior has so many levels, so you have to say it correctly. (Yes, Master.) That’s what I read. All right. What I think is, I don’t know what to think. Because I am not a governor, I am not the women, that he has been accused by, or that accused him. But I’m thinking, if it’s just like, so-called harassment, I don’t know what kind of harassment he measured out to his staff or to these women, but men, they like beautiful women, don’t they? Yes? (Yes, Master.) (Yes.) And, is he single? Or married? Or widowed? (Currently he’s single, Master.) Single? (Yes.) So, single man is looking for single woman. Is something wrong with that? (No, Master.) Just because they are his staff, it’s easier. Every day they work together. (Yes, Master.) And the staff tendency is always being of course very friendly, very coordinated, very respectful toward him, as their boss. (Yes, Master.) So, because of that, he feels that they are so, more, more lovely. More to his manly liking. No? (Yes, Master.) This is the problem. When they work together with a woman and he’s a single, then things could happen.But he didn’t… according to the report I read, he didn’t like, excuse me, molest them, or force them to do anything. Did he? According to reports, yes or no? (I’m not aware of the specific allegations,) No. (but, I don’t think so, Master.) No. So, OK, maybe he said something or he liked to do something with them. Maybe he’s in love with them in the span of four years, right? (Yes, between 2016 and 2020.) Four years, only three women, that’s very sparesome already for a man his age and his position. And because he doesn’t go out, he’s too busy, so his staff is all he has. So, maybe he said something maybe he shouldn’t say, like… I saw one photo, he asked the woman if he… “Can I kiss you?” Can he kiss her. (Yes, Master.) So that is not like molestation or anything. (No, Master, that is not.)I think they blow it out of proportion. If that’s all there was and nothing more than that, then it’s just maybe misbehavior. But it’s not much to make a big deal out of it. I mean, it’s nothing worse than many of the stories of the Catholic Church priests. They molested children. More than ten thousands over the years in France alone, according to reports and confession archives. The little children. The altar boys and other children. And nobody said anything. They do say something but very little. I mean what’s the use of all these laws to protect children, to prosecute those children traffickers or children abusers when there are revered, trusted priests who are doing it, doing the same thing. The law turns a blind eye to the helpless, innocent children victims?? And here we are, chasing a single lay person governor for taking the courage to confess to a girl that he likes her! Think about it! (Yes.)I think if we talk about the law, we should talk about the Church law first. It’s more restricted. If you are a monk, you don’t molest children. Even if you are normal people and you molest children, people bring you to court and bring you to jail. No? (Yes, Master.) So, he’s a governor, he just asked if he can kiss her or if he can, even if he asked to go to bed with her, she can always say no. They are adults. No? (Yes, Master.) They’re grown up or not? (Correct, Master.) (Yes.) A man has the right or has… not a right, but he can ask what he wants. And all you do is to say, just to say, “No, sir.” Right? (Yes, Master.) Why make a big deal and accusing him of whatever they do accuse him, if that’s all there was. He did not molest anybody. He did not force anyone into like a physical, sexual relationship or anything. (Yes, Master.) Just because now people… some people don’t like the Democrats and then he’s a Democrat so they’re trying to make it more big things. Or just to show that they care, but this is not… It’s not too fair. (Yes, Master.)But the thing is like this, I’m thinking. In my own experience in life, men have a tendency to misread the signal from a woman. Because sometimes I had no intention or anything. I’m just respectful and friendly, and they think I like them. (Yes, Master.) Many situations like that, including my own vet doctor for my dogs before. But I did not accuse him or sue him for sexual harassment. Nothing. Even he put a hand on my knee. (Oh.) We went to see movies together with my staff also. And he insisted to sit next to me and I didn’t think anything. And then he put his hand on my knee. You know… So I just moved. That’s all. And he knew. You see what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.) Later, I scolded my staff. I say what you think, why you let him sit next to me? And they also said they didn’t think anything. And that man, vet doctor, was married, even. (Oh.)Later, because of an injured opossum with kids, I had to talk to him as my other vet refused to help. It was after midnight, so I said to him first, “I forgive you. But don’t do it again.” All my staff knew about this and they are still alive! Including the vet. (Oh.) So this governor, he’s single. He’s lonely. He’s pressurized with his job and he probably needs company. Maybe he likes the girl. Maybe if they’re dating for a while, maybe she likes him also. Then maybe they’re married later. Who knows? (Yes, Master.) Maybe he’s in love with them. But that doesn’t mean he’s a sexual predator.Well, according to my opinion, because men, they misread. Very, very likely to misread the woman’s signal. (Yes, Master.) Because the staff, they of course, they are respectful and friendly to their boss. No? (Yes.) (Yes, Master.) And of course, every man likes this kind of sweetness, gentleness, and respectful manner. So, of course, maybe he thinks he could try. But that doesn’t mean anything. She could always say no. (Yes, Master.) Why didn’t she say no until now? Why wait so long? I feel sorry for the woman also; we are in trouble all the time. Because if we are friendly, then we’re misunderstood. (Yeah, yeah.) If we are so stern and strict, then I don’t know, what else. They think we are … they call us a, something else. (Yeah.)They say she’s a bitch or something like that but it’s humans’ quality and manner, sometimes very difficult to live with. (Yes, Master.) And I never had anything to do with Mr. Cu-m, Cu-mo Cuomo. (Cuomo.) Yeah. But it’s just to be fair and just. That’s what I think. All right? (Yes, Master.) And if I get into trouble, then it’s your fault. (OK.) But I don’t care whatever, I say whatever I think and always truthful. (Yes, Master.) So, then they have to get more evidence but if he’s just flirting or ask if he can kiss her, that is not like a bombshell or stunning picture or something like that. I think we should not just exaggerate. We have to wait for the judge or the court to find evidence and affidavits before they can make a decision and make a judgment. (Yes, Master.)That’s why in Canada they have the law that when somebody is like a criminal suspect, yes, they don’t let the newspapers know about it. (Oh.) Yes. Because they worry that there will be like prejudice (Yes, Master.) from the readers and from the public en masse and that will be not fair judgment on the criminal. (Wow.) And I agree with that. Because sometimes you can really misjudge somebody, by just his character or his personality. (Yes.)Because I have been misjudged many times during my life. So, it’s very difficult to immediately jump to conclusions to judge somebody. (Yes, Master.) Unless I really know from inside. But I don’t take care much of these government officials. So, I don’t look inside so much. I just look outside, all evidence according to the newspapers. I think it’s not a big deal. They are both adults. (Yes, Master.) And it’s nothing wrong for a man to like a woman, even if that’s his staff. Nothing wrong. She doesn’t have to like him. But that’s not harassment. (No, Master.) No. Well, it could be a different story. Like, if he’s younger or more of their type, then she or one of them would have liked him, then it would be a love story. Otherwise, it’d be labelled as harassment. Ha! Bad luck.When I was working in the Red Cross, I told you already before, there was one of my bigger bosses, he saw me outside in the corridor one time when I went to the restroom. And since then he kept coming to my office during the coffee break. He just sat there reading newspapers in front of me. He asked my smaller boss, who normally sits in front of me. Not same table, but the two tables together and she sits in front so I don’t know how he asked her to go away and then he came and sat there (Wow.) often. But I never went out and sued him like sexual harassment or anything. He sat there and I sat there. I worked. I did my work. He read his newspapers. Even though one time, a couple of times he told me that, he said something, very complimentary like, “Oh we never see such a beautiful woman like you working in here.” Something like that. (Wow.) But that is not harassment. Even if he so obviously came and sat in front of me all the time.Well, luckily I quit anyway. After a while, I went somewhere else. Because my ex-husband had to move to work elsewhere. (Yes, Master.) So we moved. So I don’t know what is a happy ending to tell you. It’s not the first time and he’s not the only one, but men they like women so if they express some desire towards you, and if you don’t like him, you just do something to let him know that just you’re not interested. (Yes.) I showed him my wedding ring.There is no need to sue a man just for that, my God. He probably is lonely, just work, work, work. And the staff is all he knows and he goes out nowhere. He should have gone to the bar and get chatting or something. But maybe it’s not his style. (Yes, Master.) If he didn’t do anything more than that, I think it’s decent enough of him. Being single and in his position and he’s just asking if he can kiss her. (Yes, Master.) Nowadays he should not ask, because of COVID. People, they are even writing in the newspaper. They say, don’t kiss. Even they say couples should not kiss. Maybe they should have worn masks inside the office. Then that question won’t come up, no? Ah well. My God. What a gossip. OK, it’s good.HOST: Master also kindly answered a question regarding gender-neutral terms coming into use in the United States and the United Kingdom. (Master, there has been some news recently about gender identity and the use of gender-neutral terms. In the US, the House of Representatives unveiled new internal rules removing gender pronouns and family relationship terms. Terms such as mother, father, sister and brother have been replaced with parent, sibling, child etc… Also in the UK, some hospitals are changing regulations to move away from female gender terms in the maternity department, and now breastfeeding is to be called “chestfeeding,” and breast milk to be chest milk, and so on. Master, what do You think about these new policies coming into effect?)Ah! Chests don’t have milk, breast does. We all know that! Nowadays, many things you read, many things you hear, you could not believe your eyes or your ears. It’s like people, like even the government wants to pass into law to change the gender into all to become like trans, become like neutral gender. But how can you be neutral? You are just the way you are. But to please them, the government or many people suggest or pass into law or already passed into law to change the gender. Like, cannot call “mother” anymore or “woman” anymore. If you say mother, you have to say “birthing bodies” or “uterus holder” or “chestfeeder.” All this is really seriously so ridiculous. It’s a laughing stock that they spend so much time doing such silly things.I mean if you are a woman, you should be proud to be a woman, if you are man, you are proud to be a man. If you are gay, you should be proud to be a gay, because nowadays, gay people can marry another gay. So what’s the problem anymore? If you are a lesbian, you’re proud to be a lesbian. God made you that way. Just be proud, be yourself.Also, this kind of gender terms change is degrading, very degrading to motherhood, and to the dignity of women, of womanhood. That in my opinion, is a no-no-no-no. A mother, a woman, is a sacred being, is not a thing like “children bearer machine” or a “uterus holder,” etc., etc. Now, how would they want to address Mary, The Mother of Lord Jesus? Or The Mother of The Buddha? As well as many Woman Saints and Sages who are revered as Holy Mothers??? This is terrible, this is really unacceptable.HOST: Master also addressed some reports in the media about different side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as the cause of the Spanish Flu and other zoonotic diseases. She then expressed Her deep concern about our world.I’m telling you, right now I’m worried about something very much more serious. Everybody should worry because if, after all, if I fail to negotiate, if humans continue their barbarous ways, things could happen to the whole world, and sudden. Nobody has time to prepare. Just like the pandemic. You got that? (Yes, Master.) Because when the big karma comes, collective karma, that karma will not spare anyone. I really lost sleep over that. I’m trying my best, of course. So, all we have to do is just be good, be compassionate, don’t kill people, don’t kill animals to eat anymore, then everything will calm down. HOST: Most Benevolent Master, Your tireless, loving efforts to sustain this world and all beings in it is a forever guiding Light for all of us. Your immeasurable, unconditional Love and sacrifices will always be our utmost inspiration and reason to pray and believe that very soon this magnificent planet will reach a state of lasting peace and harmony, where all people embrace their innate compassionate nature. May Master be always in good health and protected in the Divine assistance of all glorious Ihôs Kư Godses.For the full broadcast of this conference with Supreme Master Ching Hai, please tune in to Between Master and Disciples at a later date.

Insights on the U.S. Presidential Election, Feb. 7, 2021

On February 7, 2021, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai took precious time from Her intensive meditation retreat for our world to read a story about two fallen angels to the Supreme Master Television team. She graciously translated it from “A Treasury of Jewish Folklore” compiled by Nguyễn Ước. Afterwards, Master kindly answered questions from team members. In response to one question, Master revealed why the former President of the United States, His Excellency Donald Trump, a laureate of the Shining World Peace Leader Award and Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion, did not continue to contest the presidential election results after the January 6, 2021 protest at the US Capitol in Washington, DC.You see, President Trump wasn’t going to give up. It’s just that after they entered the government building there and some people died like that, of course, that goes against his own principle of peace and non-violence. So, he gave up immediately; he immediately announced that there will be the peaceful transfer of presidential power to the next party, because he did not want any more trouble like that and he did not want any more lives lost, similar to the King of Heaven. The story I told you, one of the past reincarnations of the Buddha, because of compassion, because of real love, he didn’t want victory at all costs. So that is a true victory. Winning is not always winning, losing is not always losing. I very much respect and admire him for that.Master also addressed the mistreatment of Americans who have been supportive of His Excellency by the other party.People are scared, scared to say that they are supporting whom, supporting President Trump. They’re hiding; they don’t even dare to speak loud and all that.The opposite party, they should be contented and happy with the winning, with the seizing of power. I mean they should be more compassionate, more benevolent, more tolerant to calm people’s hearts to stabilize the country.Master then explained more about the presidential election results.(You have the Power of Heaven to change the result of the election.) Yes. (How come Master didn’t do that?) Yeah. Because… Because we are not supposed to do it like that. (Right.) Also, it would destroy the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party had many good Presidents. I owe the Democratic Party something. I owe ex-President Clinton, because I had written him a very long letter to ask him to help the Aulacese (Vietnamese).The American government was also helping the refugees. But President Clinton lifted the 30-years long embargo for Âu Lạc (Vietnam) for 74 million people. It was a great job that he had done. After the war, everything was already almost depleted. Economically, politically and everything, Âu Lạc (Vietnam) was really dying. President Clinton, after I had written the letter, not long after, he lifted the embargo (Right.) of 30 years. Many presidents did not do that, but he did.He lifted the embargo and I am forever grateful to him. Thank you, President Clinton, I am still grateful to you. May God bless you and yours with everything that is favorable and good. Now you know I was stuck in-between. I care for Americans but on one hand I cannot harm the Democratic Party.I tried other ways to soften the effect. (Yes, Master.) Even though President Trump is no more in power, I try to work with the other party, to help them, and to soften the gravity of the situation. It will get better. (Yes, Master. Thank You, Master.) (Thank You, Master.) Yes. I had to be fair and just (Yes, Master.) to my own conscience.Our heartfelt appreciation, Your Excellencies Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, for all that you have done for America, nations like Âu Lạc (Vietnam) and our world. Our deepest gratitude, Most Compassionate Master, for sharing these profound insights into the United States’ recent presidential election. We are eternally grateful for everything You are doing to help humanity and uplift our planet’s consciousness. May Master’s glorious vision of a peaceful and loving vegan world soon be realized.For the full broadcast of this conference with Supreme Master Ching Hai, please tune in to Between Master and Disciples at a later date.

NWN Heartline - February 25, 2021

NWN Heartline - February 25, 2021

And now we have a heartline from Janie in the Republic of Suriname Dear Master and Supreme Master Television team, A few years ago, when Supreme Master TV relaunched, I was asking why Supreme Master TV had started again as I thought that the planet was going in the right direction with the number of vegans growing. One night while meditating, I was granted a vision to answer my question. In that vision, it was shown to me that the Earth was headed to Armageddon in which 95% of the population would perish due to infectious diseases, plagues of locusts, natural disasters, food insecurity, meteor strikes and civil unrest. It was also revealed that this was due to the heavy karma incurred from the killing of animals for food. However, due to the Master’s Power and the spread of Supreme Master TV to every corner of the globe, the world would be saved. In this vision, Master cast a physical net of light over the Earth using Supreme Master TV, and through meditation, pushed love and merit through this net. This happened for many, many years until the planet was saved and eventually elevated to Eden. Thank You so much, most precious and all-powerful Master, for giving Earth a second chance and humans the opportunity to evolve and know their true compassionate nature. And thank you, Supreme Master TV team, for your selfless dedication to create such noble programming and for spreading Supreme Master TV. Your devoted disciple, Janie from the Republic of SurinameInsightful Janie, Thank you for writing about your incredible vision regarding Master’s intervention to save humanity. You have seen inside the severity of our planet’s situation and the immediate need for people to be vegan and live cruelty-free to take advantage of the second chance. May the Godses bless you and the lively Surinamese with vibrant health and well-being, Supreme Master TV teamP.S. Master has some words for you: “Highly Spiritual Janie, thank you for reminding all of us of the fatal consequences of killing our animal friends. Truly, we can change our world’s fate for the better if we embrace compassionate living, including the loving plant-based diet. May God’s Love bathe you and the affectionate people of Suriname as we all share the benevolent merit with your nation and the world. Love you!”

Former pig breeder converts farm into animal sanctuary in Taiwan (Formosa)

One day in 2008, then pig farmer Luo Hong Xian was loading his livestock animals into an abattoir’s truck, when one of the pigs turned around and looked at him. At that moment, Mr. Luo felt the pig was asking him how he could give him away after being companions for a year. Heartbroken, Mr. Luo realized that animals have consciousness and decided to stop eating meat. He then converted his farm into the Love Sea Animal Sanctuary, which currently houses hundreds of animals, including pigs, cows, chickens, ducks, geese and sheep, as well as fish and turtles.To date, the 37-year-old rescuer has also encouraged tens of thousands of visitors to likewise embrace the vegan diet. We are deeply touched by your benevolent transition, Luo Hong Xian. Heaven bless you. May all join in awakening their goodness within and begin anew in the virtuous vegan way.Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Cheerfully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Luo Hong Xian, plus US$10,000 in humble support of the Love Sea Animal Sanctuary, with all love and gratitude, in Heaven’s embrace.”

New report links dairy consumption to chronic diseases

Scientific study urges everyone to go dairy-free.An extensive report published by Switch4Good.org stated that the consumption of dairy products has been linked to “chronic diseases such as hormone-dependent cancers, type 1 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and infertility, among others.” Led by vegan Olympic silver medalist Dotsie Bausch, Switch4Good is a United States-based nonprofit, dairy-free advocacy group of over 400 athletes and medical experts.Entitled, “A Scientific Report on Cow’s Milk, Health and Athletic Performance”, the study further highlighted that dairy consumption may impede athletic performance and recovery by “reducing blood flow and tissue oxygenation, exacerbating respiratory symptoms, causing gastrointestinal distress, and degrading bone integrity.”Urging everyone to switch to plant-based alternatives, the 48-page report recommended all individuals “to adapt to a world without [using] cow’s milk – a world that is kinder, more sustainable, and healthier for all.” Many thanks, Switch4Good, for this important report. May humanity quickly transition to a vegan diet for a thriving and vibrant life, in God’s omniscience.

In today’s news, Belgium assists Iraq in becoming free of land mines, former United States Central Intelligence Agency director speaks about extraterrestrials, world’s first hybrid hydrogen-powered ship sailing soon, Korean man still plays piano at 96-years-young, United Arab Emirates offers citizenship to foreign residents, vegan protein shop upgrades to meet soaring demand, and dogs are a woman’s best friend. Belgium helps Iraq to become free of land mines. The Government of Belgium contributed US$1.8 million to the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) in Iraq to enhance the nation’s capacity in managing explosive ordnance and to spread life-saving information in affected areas. In its efforts to support the Iraqi government, UNMAS will form partnerships with global mine action groups and local non-governmental organizations. UNMAS also promotes hiring and training women and men from local communities for mine clearing jobs. This will provide vital livelihood opportunities to vulnerable communities. The Government of Belgium is a Shining World Leadership Award for Animal Protection laureate. Our earnest appreciation, compassionate Belgium government, for your assistance in making Iraq mine-free. May peace soon bless every land, in Divine love. Former director of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) comments on the existence of extraterrestrials. The Honorable John Brennan, former Director of the CIA, recently spoke on a podcast with Dr. Tyler Cowen, a professor of economics at George Mason University, describing how some of the unexplained phenomena witnessed in recent years may “constitute a different form of life.” He was referring to US Navy reports of unidentified flying objects that he said “are quite eyebrow-raising when you look at them…” His remarks follow a task force that the Pentagon established in 2020 to investigate UFOs and multiple unexplained sightings that were observed by US defense forces. Our salute, the Honorable John Brennan, for sharing your views on the sightings of UFOs. In Heaven’s grace may, we pray for a future of peaceful and benevolent contact with different forms of life as we join the family of elevated galactic beings. Up next, world’s first hybrid hydrogen-powered ship sailing soon. We’ll just thank grocery delivery truck drivers, who help to ensure that nutritious vegan food is available at our door step upon request. Please stay for more conducive news on Supreme Master Television. Respectful viewers, I’m Alicia the vegan Aye-aye. People ask me what products I use to have such glowing fur, and I say, “a vegan diet!” Try it for yourself− I can see your hair shining brighter already! I have a tip to make your home more quiet. Squeaky hardwood floors can be disturbing. To eliminate the noise, you can try some talcum powder, otherwise known as baby powder. Put some onto the cracks in close proximity to the squeak. Spread the powder around using a small broom or cloth in order to reach into the crevices. If it is still making a sound, use the broom or cloth to work the powder deeper into the crevices. Finish the job by cleaning away the excess powder and wiping the floor with a damp cloth. Enjoy your more peaceful home. Love you so much for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! And thank you for tuning in. Now the weather around the globe. The world’s first hydrogen hybrid ship will soon set sail. Zeus, short for Zero-Emission Ultimate Ship, is being constructed by the Italy-based shipbuilding company Fincantieri and is the first naval ship made with a hybrid engine of two electric motors and two diesel generators. Zeus’s hydrogen fuel cell units produce a total of 130 kilowatts, which can power the 25-meter long ship for approximately eight hours, cruising at 7.5 knots. The non-electric generators are for backup and longer range travels. Zeus will be launched in the Mediterranean Sea this year. Last year, the European Union initiated a Hydrogen Strategy to encourage more hydrogen-based applications across the continent to reduce emissions. The European Union is a recipient of four Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Peace, and a Shining World Leadership Award for Earth Protection; as well as a laureate of two Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism and Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Unconditional World Care and True Caring. Kudos, all involved in making remarkable Zeus. We pray that more countries will prioritize implementing sustainable technology, along with Vegan Law, to cool the planet and save our world, in God’s mercy. Korean man has been sharing his marvelous piano talent for over eight decades. Ninety-six-year-young Professor Jegal Sam is still playing the piano and he told BBC News that he is confident he’ll play until he is 100. He started when he was 14, and later became a music professor at Pusan National University. After teaching piano for over 50 years, Professor Jegal Sam is now retired but still plays every day in case any opportunities arise for him to perform. He is known as one of the oldest solo pianists in Korea. Thank you, Professor Jegal Sam, for your inspiring life of serving others through your dedication to music. In the joy of Heaven, may you reach 100-years-young as you continue enriching our world with your beautiful artistry. The United Arab Emirates to grant citizenship to foreign residents for the first time. The UAE announced that foreign residents who contribute to the development of the nation, including “investors, doctors, specialists, inventors, scientists, talents, intellectuals, artists and their families,” may be granted citizenship. They would be allowed to hold dual nationality and establish deeper roots in the country. Vice President and Prime Minister of United Arab Emirates His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, a Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion laureate, said the new system aims to promote social inclusiveness and encourage long-term expatriates to contribute to the country’s economy. The United Arab Emirates is a recipient of the Shining World Leadership Award for Good Governance and a laureate of Shining World Leadership Awards for Peace, Environment Protection, Protection, and Compassion.

London, UK-based Rudy’s Vegan Butcher, which opened on World Vegan Day last year (November 1) is moving to a “state of the art kitchen” due to the overwhelming popularity of its various products. The business offers vegan versions of smoked ham, pastrami, pepperoni, salami, lobster salad and more, and has been a huge success. On their first day of opening, they had 100 online orders within minutes and a queue of people around the block before their doors were open. Since that time, staff have been working through the night to keep up with the rising demand. Our big congratulations, Rudy’s Vegan Butcher, and best wishes! In Heaven’s gladness, may your tasty offerings help more people to adopt the compassionate lifestyle. Research reveals women’s influence on dog-human relationships. Dogs are commonly known as man’s best friend, but a study at Washington State University in the United States found that in ancient communities around the globe women had a stronger bond with dogs than men. The analysis, based on 144 early human settlements studies, showed that women had a special relationship with dogs, leading to stronger human-canine connections. Women named their dog companions, showed them affection, and allowed them to sleep indoors as part of the family. They also mourned them when they passed on. In addition, the researchers concluded that the humans’ and dogs’ relationship has been “very successful.” Thank you Washington State University researchers, for this very interesting study. May we embrace our canine friends with the same unconditional love they bring to countless humans, in the blessings of the Providence. The key to looking young is a good laugh! Join us for our joke of the day entitled, “Around the Campfire.” On one beautiful summer night, little Melissa and her dad were sitting around a campfire. “There are so many mosquitos!” “Turn off the light so they can’t see you.” “Melissa turned off the light, but then the fireflies appeared.” “Dad! The mosquitos are back and they brought flashlights!” And now we have a heartline from Sun Shiny in France: My thanks to our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai. Dear Master and the whole team of Supreme Master Television, I would like to share a miraculous healing by Master’s Power. In November 2019, something strange happened to me in the evening. First, I had lower back pain, and I sat on the floor because I was in so much pain. All of a sudden, my lumbar spine completely froze, and I was having difficulty getting on the bed. Then, I became paralyzed within minutes. I panicked, but thought of Master. Then, I shouted, “Master, please help me.” Suddenly, an incredible force lifted me up and put me in bed. At that time, I couldn’t move. In the night, I saw Master who came to visit me, we both sat on the edge of the bed. My soul told Master that I was in so much pain. So Master immediately put Her hand on the blocked part of my body. The next day, I could get up. Within a few days, the pain had completely disappeared. A week later, I got healed without taking any medication or receiving medical treatment, as it was impossible to find a doctor who could come. I just did a few massages every day with Tiger Balm. After a medical examination, I was told I did not have any particular disease or chronic pain or inflammation. Thank You very much, Master. You healed me. Without Your help and blessing, I would still be paralyzed right now. Your Love gives me courage in life and transforms everything in me into good, day after day. Every day, I am protected, and guided towards the path of Truth. You educate my soul in silence to develop my wisdom and to raise my consciousness. Thank You again, Master, for Your blessing. With all my respect, Sun Shiny from France Grateful Sun Shiny, We thank you for relating this special healing experience with our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai. P.S. Master has this reply for you: “Dearest Sun Shiny, it is truly your own faith and love for Master Power that cured you and for this, I am grateful that you are no longer in pain and are up and about, healthy again. I send you a big hug with my love. Keep up your meditation practice to help you stay safe and well, and tune into Supreme Master Television for more of this uplifting energy. May God bless you, the confident French people, and memorable France, with much good fortune and Grace.” We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal clips.

Evidence builds that Venus was once like Earth

Evidence builds that Venus was once like Earth

Scientists from Carleton University in Canada and Tomsk State University in Russia have found geological signs indicating that Venus once had a climate similar to Earth and was habitable.Currently, Venus’s atmosphere is comprised of 96% carbon dioxide and the surface temperature is 450 degrees Celsius. But climate modeling has shown that before a climate change event one billion years ago, Venus may have had rain, oceans, and possibly continents, snow, and other similarities with Earth. The new research efforts identified potential ancient river valleys on Venus’s surface, with patterns of river erosion that are surprisingly similar to those on our planet.Thank you, researchers, for your findings. May more people understand the grave consequences of climate change on a planet so that life may continue to thrive on our own beautiful Earth, under the guidance of the Providence.Supreme Master Ching Hai on the Environment: The Secrets of Venusclick here to watch the full message

Legal initiative launched to halt factory farming in United Kingdom

Legal initiative launched to halt factory farming in United Kingdom

UK-based non-profit Humane Being, run by dedicated volunteers, recently commenced the “Scrap Factory Farming” campaign to raise public awareness and legally pressure the government to stop intensive animal livestock raising. The veganism-promoting group cites the harmful operation as a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, zoonotic outbreaks, deforestation, animal cruelty, and antibiotic resistance. In a letter, Humane Being asked the Right Honourable George Eustice, the UK Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, whether the government has considered the risks and whether it plans to ban the intensive livestock industry or remove subsidies for it. Humane Being is also preparing for a possible court case, crowdfunding the work of their powerful legal team, which includes prominent British human rights lawyer and vegetarian Michael Mansfield.Humane Being’s founder and director Jane Tredgett and campaign spokesperson David Finney spoke with Supreme Master Television: “When we first started, we were focusing on a particular clause in the Animal Welfare Act that we thought was being breached. We knew there were environmental impacts coming from the industry. More research led us to realize the health issues were just as alarming. So, our legal team said this is going to be much stronger if we present all three.” “So, at the moment we’re waiting for the Secretary of State for EFRA (Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) to come back to us with an answer. Once they come back, if they come back and said, ‘We’re going to review all factory farming, ‘ then that might be the end of where we need to go. But if they come back and say something very different to that, we have to take another approach to going back and communicating with them. We’ve just literally got to take each step as it comes and take guidance from our fantastic legal team as to what we do.”Our gratitude and best wishes for your success, David Finney, Jane Tredgett, Humane Being, and all involved in the “Scrap Factory Farming” campaign. May all governments take urgent actions to end animal suffering and thus build a sustainable vegan future, in God’s mercy. To find out more about Humane Being’s Scrap Factory Farming campaign, please tune in to Veganism: The Noble Way of Living at a later date

To help stabilize former conflict areas, Belgium has contributed €2 million to the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) to bolster mine-clearing activities in the two Middle Eastern states. In Iraq, the focus will be on Sinjjar, with both women and men and Yezidis and non-Yezidis working as deminers. Mine clearance saves lives as it opens a pathway for displaced individuals to return safely. Furthermore, it helps facilitate the restarting of agricultural production, rebuilding of basic infrastructure and resuming of economic activities. In addition to demining, UNMAS aids civilians by raising risk awareness and assisting victims. Belgium and UNMAS, we sincerely thank you for your kind care. May these endeavors bring much needed protection, safety and restoration of hope to the kind people of Syria and Iraq as they return home, in Allah’s boundless mercy.Researchers possibly closer to understanding life’s beginnings on Earth. Scientists from Japan and the United States, led by Dr. Yasuhiro Oba from Japan’s Hokkaido University, have discovered a key organic molecule in meteorites, or small parts of asteroids, that may have helped form other organic compounds used by life in Earth’s early history. The material, known as hexamethylenetetramine or HMT, was discovered in three different meteorites. The investigators hypothesize that HMT helped create biological molecules like amino acids on asteroids with liquid water and sufficient heat and arrived to Earth by falling meteorites. Such fascinating findings, Dr. Yasuhiro Oba and co-researchers, regarding how life possibly began on our planet.

Many thanks for this convenient and delicious snack idea. Thank you for your attention and lots of love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. Now, the worldwide weather.Researchers study inexpensive further filtering of treated wastewater that is used for irrigation. Penn State University scientists in the United States have investigated utilizing agricultural waste products to produce biochar, a charcoal type material, which can then be used to filter out pharmaceuticals that most US sewage plants cannot remove from contaminated water. During the study, cotton gin waste and guayule bagasse, a residue from a shrub cultivated to make latex, were used to produce the biochar, which then acted to filter a liquid that had three different pharmaceutical compounds added to it. The cotton gin waste was found to be the more effective of the two, removing 98% of docusate, a laxative, 74% of erythromycin, an antibiotic, and 70% of sulfapyridine a veterinary antibacterial medication. Thank you, Penn State University researchers, for conducting your promising study. May your work lead to more effective water filtering solutions to conserve our precious resources as well as to make our irrigation water free of all chemicals, in God’s benevolence.United Kingdom Space Agency wins sustainability award.

In December 2020, Michael Esmond, the 74-year-young owner of Gulf Breeze Pools and Spas in Florida, United States, paid over US$7,600 to cover the overdue utility fees owed by 114 families. After 60-plus days of nonpayment, the services can be disconnected. In 2019, the caring gentleman similarly spent US$4,600 to help 36 struggling families. Mr. Esmond shared that their situation reminded him of when his home’s heat and power were shut off in December 1983 because he could not pay the bills. He also feels empathy for those who cannot afford utility fees because his community was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and Hurricane Sally in 2020. We are deeply touched by your kind heart, Michael Esmond. May your loving act inspire more people to reach out when others are in challenging situations, in the light of the Providence.Coming up, vegan protein market predicted to soar.

Global research firm MarketsandMarkets’ new report predicts that by 2025, the vegan meat sector will be worth US$8.3 billion, up from its current value of US$4.3 billion. The growth will be driven by “growing vegan and flexitarian populations across the world” choosing plant-protein products due to their health benefits over their animal-based counterparts. Government programs and investments in the field will also play a role. The authors note that the North American region will see the biggest market expansion during the period. Many multinational corporations such as KFC, Burger King, McDonald’s and one of the world’s largest meat companies, Tyson, have all released vegan offerings. Our appreciation, MarketsandMarkets for analyzing the worldwide rise in demand for plant protein. In Heaven’s blessings, may the vegan trend quickly accelerate, so all our animal co-inhabitants will soon be free to live their lives in peace and dignity.Free-spirited dog’s statue touches hearts in Estonia. A sculpture of Zorik, a former stray dog, has been erected in Tallinn, Estonia’s capital, as a tribute to the love the canine brought to the many community members who fed and took care of him during the approximately 12 years he stayed in the city’s subdistrict of Kalamaja. Designed by a local artist and financed by donations, the statue honors all stray animals. It depicts Zorik with a small cat between his paws, as he used to enjoy spending time with the local felines.

Celestial Jewelry "Seeing with the Soul" from the Third Eye; my soul seemed to be absorbed into the jewelry. I attained Samadhi and could comprehend the whole universe. Everything was as clear as the name and the design “Seeing with the Soul,” which has a translucent gem in the middle. In that nanosecond, I also realized that all Master’s Celestial Jewelry, paintings, and lamps are Heaven's Gates connected to the different Spiritual Levels according to the name Master gave to a specific design. Anyone who has the opportunity to see Master's designs will have their souls connected and be brought to those spiritual Levels, even if their minds and physical bodies are unaware of it. I wish Master great health and happiness always. May Your great mission soon be accomplished, and a vegan world will soon dawn on Earth. Thank you, Supreme Master Ching Hai and Supreme Master Television team, for working day and night to bring uplifting programs, joy, and hope to humanity. Nga from Âu Lạc (Vietnam)Shining Nga, It was a joy to read your insights into Master’s radiant artworks that She has created for our pleasure and spiritual upliftment.

Thank God for Master’s presence on our planet, and may Hes bless you and the elegant Aulacese people. In Divine Bliss, Supreme Master TV teamP.S. Master says: “Special Nga, art brings us beyond this mundane world and is one of the ways on this physical plane to remind us all to remember God.

A team of researchers working with the international nonprofit Sea Shepherd Conservation Society may have discovered a previously unknown species of beaked whales. The scientists noticed a trio of distinctly unique whales surfacing and swimming around the Sea Shepherd’s boat near the Pacific coast of Mexico. While it is rare to see beaked whales in general, to meet a friendly group of this elusive species was even more unusual. By utilizing photographs, video and acoustical recordings of the aquatic mammals, as well as a genetic sampling taken from the environment, the team is set to verify the possible discovery of a new species. We are impressed and excited too by your remarkable encounter, researchers and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society! In God’s comforting gaze, may all our special animal co-inhabitants be forever cherished.Laughter is good for our health, so we chose a joke of the day for you called, “Twenty Years of Marriage.” After 20 years of marriage, a wife started complaining to her husband that he did not love her anymore. She begged him to seek advice from the local parish priest, and he complied. Afterwards, when he arrived home, he lifted her off her feet and carried her from one room to the other. Surprised, she exclaimed:“Oh! So you really do love me? What did the priest tell you?”“Well, he told me to carry my cross...”?!!And now we have a heartline from Emma in the United States: Dear Master, I recently watched the video where You had lovingly shared COVID-19 tips about being serious in taking precautions and wearing a mask. Master also spoke of snake issues in this and a previous video. I have read that there are certain essential oils which will repel snakes because they are very sensitive to smells. For example, it is mentioned that cinnamon oil and clove oil are good repellents. If concentrated enough, the oils might help to keep them away from Master’s vicinity. In the house, I use a diffuser with 10-15 drops of essential oil (more than the recommended amount) to repel ants and insects, refilling maybe two times per day to keep the smell concentrated. It has been very effective for us as it keeps them away naturally. I think for snakes, the essential oils will work the same way. I pray Heaven will help Master through everything. Emma from the United StatesBeloved Emma, We are very appreciative of the fact that you took the time to write to Master.Here is Her response to you: “Caring Emma, I am deeply touched that you care so much to help and protect me. It is a very loyal quality to wish for the safety of your Master. I thank you for the tip on snake repellents, and it may help save people’s lives as well. May you and the enterprising United States forever be protected and sheltered by Divine Grace.”We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal clips. Please send them via SupremeMasterTV.com/heartlineWe sure have enjoyed spending time with you on Noteworthy News. May Divine love and wisdom be your inner treasures.
