Unde locuiește Maestra Supremă Ching Hai? partea 3 din 6

Și în unele locuri, am cumpărat un teren mare pentru ei, ca în Costa Rica. Sunt 12 acri, un teren frumos în vârful unui munte. Un munte, dar foarte strălucitor și foarte, foarte frumos, și cu iarbă și verde. De multe ori mergeam acolo înainte și stăteam mult și în fiecare zi le țineam discursuri.

Zoonotic Diseases: Nature’s Self-Defense, Part 2 of 2

Today we’ll further explore the causes, interconnections, and solutions for our planet’s public health and economic crises. In June 2020, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) released a report entitled, “COVID-19: Urgent Call to Protect People and Nature,” urging governments, corporations, organizations, and the public to take action to restore our broken relationship with nature and thus avoid future pandemics involving zoonotic infections, defined by the report as “any diseases originating from animals and transmitted to humans.” Among the many suggested initiatives to be implemented, some to be applied by governments are: a) halt the high-risk wildlife trade and increase enforcement to combat the illicit wildlife trade; and b) introduce and enforce legislation and policy actions to eliminate deforestation and conversion from supply chains. “To talk about nature is to talk about our essence, is to talk about us. The forest, the leaves, nature, the wind, the rain – it is sacred. Everything is sacred. In my language, it's called, ‘u-tã’ -- everything is sacred. Nature and the indigenous people are the whole of harmony. The indigenous people cannot live without nature, without the river. The earth has life; it cries when it is destroyed.” Defined by The International Ecotourism Society as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education,” ecotourism could be part of the solution to our profits vs. planet issues. Countries such as Costa Rica, Ecuador, Kenya, Nepal, Madagascar, and regions like Antarctica already use ecotourism as an important economic activity. The WWF for Nature report also recommends “scaling up efforts to combat the trade of illegal and high-risk species at national and international levels.” Some organizations including The International Anti-Poaching Foundation and The Black Mambas Anti-Poaching Unit, both in Africa, are putting forth efforts to stop the illegal hunting and capturing of wild animals. And last but not least, some enterprises have virtually taken land use out of the equation. Watergen, Ô Amazon Air Water, Solar Foods, and Fairbrics are some of the innovative businesses using air as a primary source for the development of food, water, and even clothing – avoiding the devastation of forests and the conversion of natural ecosystems, as well as preventing contact with wild fauna carrying viruses not yet known to human beings.

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 1 of 2

00:16:38

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 1 of 2

IPCC is the body established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide policymakers with regular scientific assessments concerning climate change. It was the recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for its work on climate change. The newly released second Special Report on Climate Change and Land brings revitalized hope with its wise, clear policy suggestions. The key message of the report is that in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, better land use, halting deforestation, and cutting down on food waste must be the priorities. In a 2009 conference, the world-renowned humanitarian and spiritual Master, Supreme Master Ching Hai, shared with attendees, “So, to cool the planet most quickly, we have to stop consuming meat in order to stop the livestock-raising industry, and thus stop greenhouse gases, methane and other toxic gases from the animal industry.”

Heavenly Messenger: How One Small Siberian Crane Transformed Taiwan (Formosa), Part 2 of 4

The little crane is really intelligent. When I met him at the farm, he stood on the ridge and called "jiu jiu-jiu," "jiu jiu-jiu." One "Jiu" and then two more. He would call like that. How strange! He's very intelligent and sensitive. When the lotus flowers are blossoming, there are many tourists. The little crane wanted to peck at people all the time. But when I went to him and scolded him, he did somewhere else. It's true. This little crane is like a person and understands people.

Plastic Pollution: Its Consequences for Rivers and Oceans, Part 3 of 3

00:15:16

Plastic Pollution: Its Consequences for Rivers and Oceans, Part 3 of 3

On today’s program, we’ll look at some of the solutions emerging all around the globe. According to a 2019 study published in the journal Science Progress, as many as 90% of all plastic items are used only once and then discarded. Plastic bags are among the biggest sources of pollution, with as many as five trillion being consumed globally each year. When disposed of improperly, the bags clog waterways, pollute oceans, and choke marine life. Many nations have decided that this must stop. As of 2020, more than 90 countries have banned the use of single-use plastic bags, and an additional 36 nations minimize the problem by applying fees for their use. Sadhguru, an internationally renowned spiritual teacher and founder of the Isha Foundation, calls for global action both by individual citizens and governments. “I am talking about one simple solution. This is not a total solution. This is a simple correction step. That is, single use plastic must be banned in all the countries.” Currently, plastic is made primarily from petroleum. But scientists around the world are searching diligently for alternative, more eco-friendly materials from which to make it. For example, polyhydroxyalkanoate, or PHA, is a biodegradable material derived from plant-based sources. Mr. Dane Anderson and his twin brother Mr. Jeff Anderson have co-founded Full Cycle Bioplastics, a company that produces plastic from this more sustainable alternative. “Full Cycle Bioplastics is the company that we founded that has the technology that can turn any organic waste into a compostable and marine degradable bioplastic.” In Chile, an award-winning company called Solubag whose founders are Shining World Invention Award recipients, produces another type of eco-friendly non-plastic bag. The biodegradable Solubag material was created in 2014 from a new raw material made through a synthesis of calcium carbide and natural gas. The company’s environmentally friendly bags completely dissolve in water within five minutes and are being used in major shopping centers in Chile. Supreme Master Ching Hai frequently reminds us about the detrimental impact of plastic pollution on our environment, saying that each of us has a personal responsibility to reduce our use, especially of plastic water and drink bottles. “Plastic bottles have been the cause of suffering for much marine lives because they will float everywhere, in the river, in the lake. And then they flow also to the ocean, everywhere. And they’re not digested with time, even. And sometimes fish, or other marine life, they swallow them and it causes them a lot of pain and sickness. And sometime birds also get caught in them, or eat them and they get sick also. Please take care of the environment so that we can live in a beautiful place. Not just for the animals; it’s also for us.”

The Joys and Benefits of Organic Farming: Interview with Mr. Helmut Butolen, Part 1 of 2

00:12:08

The Joys and Benefits of Organic Farming: Interview with Mr. Helmut Butolen, Part 1 of 2

The greatest challenge for an organic farmer is always the climate. We live here in a cold temperate climate. But has changed a lot in the last 20 years and it comes again and again to bigger dry periods and then to strong rain again. It’s not as it was 20 years ago. You have to cope with it. You have to make sure that you select your plants correctly and choose what you grow correctly. The second big challengeis of course that we have no plant growth in winter. But the customers also want to be supplied in winter. This means that you always have to make sure you have good storage facilities and a sufficient variety even in winter.

Warning Signs to Help End Climate Change: Locust Swarms, Part 3 of 3

00:14:22

Warning Signs to Help End Climate Change: Locust Swarms, Part 3 of 3

In late May 2020, a 23-square-kilometer horde of locusts entered Argentina after passing through Paraguay. The insects landed first in the provinces of Santa Fé and Formosa, both of which are essential for agriculture. Millions invaded cities and farms, devouring all the crops in the area in a matter of hours. The locusts were enormous; technicians from the Argentine government measured specimens up to 15 centimeters in length, about the size of a human hand. Climate change experts warn the warming oceans that feed cyclones and heavy rains have led to record-breaking groups of desert locusts, which could grow larger and more widespread if climate change continues. Is there a spiritual meaning to all of this? Locust attacks are mentioned in almost all the world’s ancient texts, from wall paintings on Egyptians pyramids to the Holy Bible and Holy Qur’an. In the Christian tradition swarms of locusts have typically been associated with the end of the world, stemming from a prophecy about an apocalypse. Numerous scientific reports conclude that the animal livestock industry is responsible for massive levels of greenhouse gas emissions leading to climatic change and thus recommend that people shift to a plant-based diet. Supreme Master Ching Hai also explains that worldwide adoption of the vegan lifestyle is the fastest way to halt climate change. “According to the latest report, animals are responsible for 51%, at least, of all the greenhouse gas emissions that heat up the planet. So, if we stop the animal industry, we cut out 51% of the heat. And then, if we use all the tillable land, all the cultivable land, to plant organic vegetables and fruits, then we cut off another 40%, at least, of carbon dioxide that exists. The planet cools off in a few years.” “But we can only stop the disaster once and for all by tackling the root problem; that is, by stopping the killing of humans, and mass murdering of innocent animal lives. Only when we walk in peace and love on this Earth will the Earth and nature respond peacefully to us. If we protect others, we will be protected. And as more of us become vegan, the spiritual consciousness of humankind can be elevated higher. Let’s continue striving to touch people’s hearts and minds, to change to a vegan lifestyle, and to love the precious animals and our respected planet. Then, the changes in our world could happen in more surprising speed than you think!”

Ecotourism: The Sustainable Way to Travel, Part 1 of 3

00:12:44

Ecotourism: The Sustainable Way to Travel, Part 1 of 3

In 2019, a record number of people traveled internationally, 1.5 billion, to be exact. However, conventional mass travel has been shown to be unsustainable and actually has many hidden, deeply intertwined costs for both tourist destinations and our planet. The good news is that over the past decade trends in travel have been changing considerably. As the world becomes more aware of the threats that human-induced climate change poses to people, our planet, and our future; ways to reduce the carbon footprint of activities such as mass tourism are being sought. What can we do about our recreational travel habits? The answer is ecotourism. Ecotourism is a way of travelling that minimizes the environmental impact of visiting tourist destinations, while respecting the local culture and people. The practice allows host countries to benefit and future generations to enjoy these beautiful areas as much as we do. Now let’s find out what researchers from Purdue University in Indiana, USA have to say about this new trend. "Heritage and culture and its protection are very important parts of sustainability. They are very vulnerable to the negative effects of tourism, which is why we need to ensure that we have the correct policies in place to ensure its protection for future generations." "I study community-based tourism and that is a form of tourism that is being operated by a community, usually in rural areas, specifically in rural areas in Indonesia for my research. I think identifying the resources that they have is really important and how they can use that to show their culture, and then, once they’ve identified those things, then the tourism operation can be initiated." "Sustainable tourism is about looking after people’s economic well-being, it’s about looking after their heritage and their culture, and it’s also about looking after the environment so that we can keep these three things working together for the benefit of the communities." Many thanks, Purdue University students, for sharing your knowledge about eco-tourism. May your research continue to touch the lives of all the planet’s inhabitants.

Extreme Weather: The Latest Global Climate Disasters, Part 1 of 2

This year in Africa, more than 1.21 million people in 12 different countries were affected by heavy rainfall and flooding. The following is a summary of the floods’ consequences in Africa between June and October 2020. Floods in Democratic Republic of Congo had resulted in at least 15 fatalities and thousands of people were affected. Floods in Tunisia, Ghana, Uganda and Burkina Faso had caused at least 15 fatalities and thousands had been affected. Floods in Sudan, South Sudan, Benin, Chad and Nigeria had resulted in at least 421 fatalities and over one million were affected. Floods in Ethiopia and Niger had caused at least 68 fatalities and over 600,000 people were affected. Floods in Somalia had caused at least 6 fatalities and over 150,000 people were affected. Meanwhile, in California, USA massive wildfires have raged across the state since August, being responsible for 31 deaths, destroying more than 8,687 structures, and driving thousands of people from their homes. By mid-September 2020, the damage caused by the wildfires had become the worst in the state’s history, with an estimated economic toll of more than US$20 billion. Supreme Master Ching Hai often speaks about the many dangers arising from climate change and reminds us about the fastest and easiest way to halt it. “I think people should see these disasters as a warning. It’s a sign of warning, telling us, ‘Wake up! Wake up! Wake up quickly!’”“We should choose the nobler and more virtuous path. We should look for enlightenment. It’s because only when we are enlightened can we use our inner almighty power. This almighty power is the so-called God, or Buddha Nature. Only this almighty power can direct us to the right way which will lead us further and further away from these disasters and all the suffering.” “Second, we have to protect other people’s lives. We have to protect other people’s lives and other animals’ lives so that we can protect the lives of ourselves, our relatives and friends. If we truly seek enlightenment and choose the noble and virtuous way of life, and walk in this direction, all natural disasters will disappear. And we will find Heaven on Earth.”

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 3 of 3

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 3 of 3

The threat of future zoonoses or animal-transmitted diseases is even more concerning. Currently, over 72 billion land animals are slaughtered for human consumption every year. And what’s even more troubling is that many of these animals were raised on factory farms. For years, world health experts have warned about the dangers of factory farms as uncontrolled sources of new viruses. World organizations recognize the need for international regulation of the livestock animals’ industry. Pandemics are immensely costly, both in terms of lives lost and economic costs, and most of them come from animals. Raising livestock animals and meat consumption are also the major causes of climate change, deforestation, pollution, and loss of wildlife. Ed Winters, aka “Earthling Ed,” is a vegan educator from London, England. he explains that meat consumption has been the root cause of many of the world’s deadliest diseases. As such, eating meat can no longer be considered a “personal choice.” Dr. Michael Klaper, a highly acclaimed physician, consultant, and speaker, believes the current pandemic is a warning. Dr. Klaper: “I have to say something about the origin of this scourge that we’re facing. This was not a random event. It has to do with the confinement and slaughter and eating of animals.” For more than three decades, Supreme Master Ching Hai has been reminding us about the bad karma we incur from eating meat and the need to adopt the compassionate, plant-based lifestyle. The current situation is so critical that in March 2020 Master sent an “URGENT Message to All World Leaders and Governments.” “The WORLD IS BURNING, threatens to get worse any moment, HUMANS AND ANIMALS PERISHING at an alarming rate. Heavens and Earth are plaguing us with ever new, more strange diseases. Destructive signs are evident everywhere. WARNING SIGNS ARE AMBER and obvious around our world! Our climate is accelerating. So, stopping these brutal, murderous businesses is the fastest way to cool our Earth. And this VEGAN LAW IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO SAVE OUR WORLD.” Many thanks, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for your clear guidance and direction. We pray that all beings soon adopt the noble, compassionate vegan lifestyle.

Climate Crisis: Countdown to Year Zero, Part 4 of 7

In this episode we'll learn that one of the most powerful tools for encouraging people to change is social media. On today’s program, we'll meet two social media animal-rights advocates, Mr. Ryuji Chua, a dedicated activist from Los Angeles, California, USA, and Ms. Renee king-Sonnen, founder of Rowdy Girl Sanctuary in Waelder, Texas, USA. “By me putting out content on the internet and being like, ‘Hey, this is what I’m about. I’m vegan, this is my life. My life is awesome.’” ”I can't speak to everyone. But what if I can speak to a thousand people and I can not only speak to them but empower them to create their own community? Then they can empower their community to create more communties. And in that way, we can really spread a movement. Today we have this opportunity to change the world by creating communities.“ “This chicken farmer-cattle rancher family in the heart of chicken-ranch country has gone vegan.” “The earth is getting hotter. We are killing animals. We are destroying forests still. And so, we have no choice but to return the forests. To me it’s as if Nature has said, ‘You now understand what’s going on. You now know you have to bring back life. That’s the only way you’re going to survive. Otherwise you are also going to die.’”

Tiny Houses: An Eco-friendly Way of Living

Many eco-conscious people choose to live in tiny houses. They require fewer materials to build than traditional houses and so are highly economical. They also use less energy to run, require fewer resources to maintain, and help minimize household clutter, which in turn reduces the time needed for cleaning and organizing. Therefore, tiny homes offer owners more time and freedom to relax, travel, or partake in other beneficial activities. What’s more, some tiny houses are small and light enough to tow, having wheels rather than foundations, and others can float.

Extreme Weather Events: Droughts Around the World, Part 1 of 3

00:13:16

Extreme Weather Events: Droughts Around the World, Part 1 of 3

As the world warms, Earth’s climate has been undergoing intense heat waves caused by the increased chance of extremely hot days and nights. Warming air also boosts the evaporation of surface water, thus worsening the effects of droughts. More droughts create dry fields and forests that are prone to catching fire, so increased global temperatures mean longer wildfire seasons around the world. Droughts affect more people globally than any other natural disaster, because droughts don’t come and go like hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires and their start might even be mistaken for a bit of a dry spell; however, the impact of droughts builds over time. Significantly, climate change has made droughts more frequent and intense. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), each year an estimated 55 million people globally are affected by droughts, which are the most serious hazards to crops in nearly every part of the world. Water is one of the greatest global risks we are facing this century. One third of the world’s 7.4 billion people live in water-stress areas. One billion people live without access to safe drinking water. The western United States is experiencing a historic “megadrought” — an ongoing period of arid conditions not seen in centuries. Further south in Central America, Chile is also in the midst of what scientists have labeled a megadrought, an uninterrupted period of dry years since 2010. What are the solutions to the current global droughts? Many ways to improve the situation and prevent similar events from happening in the future have been suggested. However, Supreme Master Ching Hai describes the best approach as follows: “Stockholm International Water Institute states that 70% of water is used by agriculture. Of that amount, a lot of it is going into planting corn and soy and that is to feed animals, not humans! That’s why we’re short of water, short of food. Meat industry should be cut. That will help the planet. That will help to reserve our water, to refill our lakes and our rivers again. That is physically and scientifically speaking, I’m not talking about the merit, the bad karmic contribution that we are doing to ourselves by harming others and torturing animals and killing them just to save our stomach. So, if we really want to save the water for the world to be able to use for our daily necessity, not to talk about future generations, then we have to change to a vegetarian diet, animal-free diet. Animal industry must be out.” We pray to Heaven that the United States, Chile and other affected countries quickly find the solutions to the drought conditions and water shortages.

And animal agriculture, it has such a huge impact on climate change and it’s not being addressed at all.” “You’re also one of the people behind two incredible documentaries, “Cowspiracy” and “What the Health.” Processed meat has officially been determined by the World Health Organization to be cancer causing. But these parents are shoving these nuggets down these kids’ throats and they don’t see anything wrong with it, but it’s cancer causing. How do we fight all that?” “What I’m suggesting we do is we build a new one, rather than fighting the old one. (Yeah.)”

Living Sustainably Off the Grid

Living off the grid is an evolving lifestyle that reduces an individual’s environmental impact and saves money by eliminating utility bills. It also offers a sense of mental and physical independence and the satisfaction that one’s own efforts are benefiting the environment. Now let’s look at some examples of off-the-grid living. In the 1970s US architect Mr. Michael Reynolds designed an off-the-grid house called Earthship. Since then, Earthship has become well-known and is being built around the globe.

00:17:31

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 1 of 3

In late December 2019, news of a strange new virus emerging in Southern China began to surface. The virus, it was reported, was highly contagious. The World Health Organization named it “coronavirus disease,” or “COVID-19.” COVID-19 proved to be extremely contagious and spread like wildfire through China’s massive population. On March 11,2020, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director General of the World Health Organization, declared the Virus to be a global pandemic, stating, “We are deeply concerned both by the alarming levels of spread and the severity. We have therefore made the assessment that COVID-19 can be characterized as a (global) pandemic.” The pandemic put much of the world on pause. Billions of people were “self-quarantined” for an indefinite period. Borders were closed, flights cancelled. With billions of hearts was an underlying sense of fear. According to medical research, COVID-19 is a zoonotic disease, an infectious disease transmitted from animals to humans. It is suspected that the COVID-19 virus originated in bats, was then transferred to pangolins or scaly anteaters, and finally to humans. Scientists have demonstrated that every pandemic the world has experienced over the past 100 years has originated from animals.

Fires Around the World and the Key to their Prevention, Part 3 of 3

00:14:58

Fires Around the World and the Key to their Prevention, Part 3 of 3

In today’s episode, we’ll examine the fires that blazed across Siberia, Russia, and Central Africa in 2019 as well as their cause and detrimental impact. In June and July 2019, temperatures in Siberia soared to 30 degrees Celsius. September 2019, it is estimated that more than 13 million hectares of Siberian forest had burned, an area lager than Greece. The wildfires in Siberia not only affect Russia but also the world. As the fires burn, they release black carbon, also known as soot, into the atmosphere. Some of this soot settles on the ice fields in Greenland and the Arctic, making the ice sheets darker and more able to absorb the Sun’s heat, thus accelerating the melting of the ice. This contributes to sea level rise, as well as further global warming. Many scientific studies reveal that raising livestock animals to climate change, adding as much as 51% to global warming. In its 2019 report, the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated that a shift away from meat consumption and adoption of a plant-based diet would be one of the most effective solutions to climate change. Supreme Master Ching Hai has also frequently spoken about the urgent need to adopt a vegan lifestyle to protect our Earth and has recommended a global ban on meat consumption.
