From the Book of Mormon: Excerpts from the Book of Moroni – Chapters 1-7, Part 1 of 2

The Book of Mormon contains the sacred religious text of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or the Mormon Church. The founder of the church was the early 19th-century beloved spiritual leader Joseph Smith, who experienced a series of visions of God and Lord Jesus Christ. Today we will read excerpts from “The Book of Moroni,” the concluding part of the Book of Mormon. We’ll learn how through the wise word of God one can always be in Hiers presence, while keeping a perfect vision of distinguishing between right and wrong. “Therefore, all things which are good cometh of God; and that which is evil cometh of the devil; for the devil is an enemy unto God, and fighteth against Him continually, and inviteth and enticeth to sin, and to do that which is evil continually. But behold, that which is of God inviteth and enticeth to do good continually; therefore, everything which inviteth and enticeth to do good, and to love God, and to serve Him, is inspired of God.”

From the Book of Mormon: Excerpts from the Book of Moroni – Chapters 1-7, Part 2 of 2

Through Divine assistance, Joseph Smith was able to translate the Book of Mormon into English. Along with the Holy Bible, it remains an important scripture to the millions of Mormon faithful around the world. We now continue with Chapter 7 from The Book of Mormon’s “Book of Moroni,” with its wise elaborations about hope, faith, and pure-heartedness. “Therefore, if a man have faith he must have hope; for without faith there cannot be any hope. And again, behold I say unto you that he cannot have faith and hope, save he shall be meek, and lowly of heart.” “And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. …Therefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail - But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoever is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.”

Selection from “Language,” an Essay by Ralph Waldo Emerson (vegetarian)

Selection from “Language,” an Essay by Ralph Waldo Emerson (vegetarian)

Ralph Waldo Emerson was a renowned 19th-century American essayist, philosopher, lecturer, poet, and a leader of the transcendental philosophical movement. Emerson is most famous for his essays, through which he expresses ideas of freedom, spirituality, individuality, the great ability of humans to realize almost everything, and the relationship between the soul and the surrounding world. The essay “Nature” emphasizes the spirituality of nature, which he referred to as the “Universal Being,” and the human-nature connection. “Man is conscious of a universal soul within or behind his individual life, wherein, as in a firmament, the natures of Justice, Truth, Love, Freedom, arise and shine. This universal soul, he calls Reason: it is not mine, or thine, or his, but we are its; we are its property and men. Spirit is the Creator. Spirit hath life in itself. And man in all ages and countries, embodies it in his language, as the Father.”

From Hinduism’s Holy Vedas: Hymns of the Samaveda, First Part, Book I, Chapter I

00:16:00

From Hinduism’s Holy Vedas: Hymns of the Samaveda, First Part, Book I, Chapter I

Hinduism is believed to be one of the oldest living religions on Earth. The earliest Hindu spiritual text, the Rig Veda, was complied in approximately 900 B.C. Other sacred Hindu scriptures include the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Ramayana, among others. One of the most cherished values of Hinduism is “ahimsa,” or non-violence born of respect for all life. We now invite you to listen to an excerpt from Hinduism’s sacred text, the Samaveda, First Part, Book 1, Chapter I. “O Agni, bring us radiant light to be our mighty sustenance, for thou art our visible deity!” To thee, illuminer of night, O Agni, day by day with prayer, bringing thee reverence, we come. Agni is head and height of heaven, the master of the earth is he; he quickens the waters’ seed. Agni, the Sage, the Lord of Strength, hath moved around the sacred gifts, giving the offeror precious things. His heralds bear him up aloft, the God who knows all that lives, the Sun, that all may look on him. Praise Agni in the sacrifice, the Sage whose holy laws are true, the God who drives grief away.”

Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Selection from Book 4, Part 1 of 2

Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Selection from Book 4, Part 1 of 2

Marcus Aurelius was a Roman emperor of the 2nd century, also known as the last of the Five Good Emperors, after Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, and Antoninus Pius. Marcus Aurelius wrote personal notes and ideas on Stoic philosophy and spirituality as a source of guidance for himself. These notes, originally written in medieval Greek, formed a collection titled “Meditations.” Today we’ll read a segment from Marcus Aurelius’ “Meditations,” in which a very practical wisdom is simply put for everyone to understand and benefit from. “No random actions, none not based on underlying principles. People try to get away from it all – to the country, to the beach, to the mountains. You always wish that you could too. Which is idiotic: you can get away from it anytime you like. By going within. Nowhere you can go is more peaceful - more free of interruptions - than your own soul.”

Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Selection from Book 4, Part 2 of 2

Founding his beliefs on the teachings of Stoicism, the Roman emperor was also diligent in finding his own way of self-improvement. This 12-volume work has been revered by many other philosophers over the centuries and is praised as a real testament to a government of duty and service. We now continue with excerpts from the personal reflective notes of Marcus Aurelius in Book 4 of “Meditations.” “What is ‘eternal’ fame? Emptiness. Then what should we work for? Only this: proper understanding; unselfish action; truthful speech. A resolve to accept whatever happens as necessary and familiar, flowing like water from that same source and spring. Everything [is] transitory – the knower and the known. Constant awareness that everything is born from change. The knowledge that there is nothing nature loves more than to alter what exists and make new things like it.”

Thoughts on Zen by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

00:18:00

Thoughts on Zen by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

The Reverend Thomas Merton, an important Catholic mystic and spiritual thinker, was born in 1915 to a New Zealand father and an American mother. During his monastic life, Thomas Merton developed his writing talent by translating religious texts and writing biographies. He also started penning poetry, as well as books and articles on topics ranging from spirituality to social justice and peace. Today we’ll read a selection from Thomas Merton’s book “Thoughts on the East” presenting his views on the essence of Zen. “The Zen insight, as Bodhidharma indicates, consists in direct grasp of ‘mind’ or one’s ‘original face.’ And this direct grasp implies rejection of all conceptual media or methods, so that one arrives at mind by ‘having no mind’: in fact, by ‘being’ mind instead of ‘having’ it. Zen enlightenment is an insight into being in all its existential reality and actualization. It is a fully alert and superconscious act of being which transcends time and space. Such is the attainment of the ‘Buddha mind,’ or ‘Buddhahood.’”

Thoughts on Zen by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

Believing in the equality of all religions, Thomas Merton became deeply interested Eastern traditions such as Zen Buddhism in the last years of his life. He also held lively discourses with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Today the Thomas Merton Center in Kentucky, the International Thomas Merton Society, and others continue to study the life and works of the wise Reverend. We now continue with excerpts from Thomas Merton’s chapter on Zen from his book “Thoughts on the East.” “Zen is consciousness unstructured by particular form or particular system, a trans-cultural, tans-religious, transformed consciousness. It is therefore in a sense ‘void.’ And in Zen enlightenment, the discovery of the ‘original face before you were born’ is the discovery not that one sees Buddha but that one is Buddha and that Buddha is not what the images in the temple had led one to expect: for there is no longer any image, and consequently nothing to see, no one to see it, and a Void in which no image is even conceivable.”

Cum ne poate duce suferința la fericire, partea 2 din 3

Împărăția lui Dumnezeu nu este ceva care să fie foarte departe în Rai. Este chiar aici acum, și noi o avem cu toții în interior. Noi doar trebuie să o descuiem și să o folosim în fiecare zi, și atunci o să vedem cât de bună devine persoana, cât de înțeleaptă, cât de iubitoare, și cât de mulțumită devine persoana.

Cum ne poate duce suferința la fericire, partea 3 din 3

Noi suntem ”pierduți în circ” vedeți, și ne bucurăm de prea mult circ că am uitat de Casa noastră. Și cineva vine și ne bate pe umăr și spune: ”Tu nu aparții aici. Nu ți-a ajuns? Acum, îți este foame, îți este frig, ar trebui să nu mai stai aici deloc. Mergi acasă și o să ai un confort diferit.”

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 1 of 3

00:14:13

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 1 of 3

The respected Asa Keisar is an Israeli religious scholar who’s on a mission of spreading veganism all across Israel and the world. His speeches feature statements from the Holy Torah about the incorrectness of consuming animal products, especially in our modern world. Another example of his duly gained recognition is a sincere letter he received from the President of Israel, His Excellency Reuven “Ruvi” Rivlin, who called Asa Keisar’s work “nothing less than a true revolution.” Through this interview, we’ll learn more about Asa Keisar’s noble efforts as he clarifies how the most essential holy Jewish texts have always been pointing to the right way of treating our animal co-inhabitants, namely with compassion and respect. “I make the connection between the Judaism and veganism. I wrote a book about this subject. The name of the book in Hebrew is ‘Velifnei Iver Hashalem,’ ‘In Front of the Blind.’ ‘The blind,’ the meaning is the people, something like the blind – we don’t know what’s happening to the animals, about what the Torah says, about the tza’ar ba’alei chayim (suffering of living creatures) and all of these subjects. This is a passage from the Bible.”

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 2 of 3

Today, Mr. Asa Keisar readily elaborates on the Holy Torah’s requirement of justice for the animals. “About tza’ar ba’alei chayim (suffering of living creatures), it’s not only for the animals. First, it’s for us. Why? Because if we make suffering for the animal, when we eat, we take bad energy. And this energy makes us angry, makes us not good, not only in the spirit, but even in the body. When the Torah said, ‘Don’t steal from people,’ She doesn’t mean only for the people that you make something bad. You make something bad for you, for your soul, if you steal. All the scholars in Judaism say that there’s no difference in the tza’ar, in the suffering between the animals and human beings. Because the reason is not the intelligence, it’s common sense. And all the animals feel hot and cold, and all kinds of suffering. This is evidence. And Judaism is right 100% in the Book. You know something about kashrut (Jewish dietary laws), if you make suffering for the animals, its not kosher (permitted foods for kashrut).”

Buddhism’s Sacred Scripture: The Sutra of the Lotus of the Wonderful Dharma, Chapter 4, Part 5 of 6

00:12:05

Buddhism’s Sacred Scripture: The Sutra of the Lotus of the Wonderful Dharma, Chapter 4, Part 5 of 6

“The Buddha too, is like this. He knows our fondness for the petty, and so he never told us, ‘You can attain Buddhahood.’ Instead he explained to us how we could become free of outflows, carry out the Lesser Vehicle and be voice-hearer disciples. Then the Buddha commanded us to preach the Supreme Way and explain that those who practice this will be able to attain Buddhahood. We received the Buddha's teaching and for the sake of the great Bodhisattvas made use of causes and conditions, various similes and parables, a variety of words and phrases, to preach the unsurpassed way.” “The various Buddhas in their Dharma of the secret storehouse set forth the true facts for the sake of Bodhisattvas alone; it is not for our sake that they expound the true essentials. The case is like that of the impoverished son who was able to approach his father. Though he knew of his father's possessions, at heart he had no longing to appropriate them. Thus, although we preached the treasure storehouse of the Dharma of the Buddha, we did not seek to attain it ourselves, and in this way our case is similar. We sought to wipe out what was within ourselves, believing that was sufficient.”

00:11:16

Buddhism’s Sacred Scripture: The Sutra of the Lotus of the Wonderful Dharma, Chapter 4, Part 6 of 6

The Buddha is like this, resorting to a rare course of action. Knowing that some have a fondness for the petty, He uses the power of expedient means to mold and temper their minds, and only then teaches them the great Wisdom. Today we have gained what we never had before; what we previously never hoped for, has now come to us of itself. We are like the impoverished son who gained immeasurable treasure. World-Honored One, now we have gained the Way, gained its fruit; through the Dharma of no outflows we have gained the undefiled eye. Through the long night, we observed the pure precepts of the Buddha and today for the first time, we have gained the fruit, the recompense. In the Dharma (true Teaching) of the Dharma King we have long carried out brahma practices; now we obtain the state of no outflows, the great unsurpassed fruit. Now we have become voice-hearers in Truth, for we will take the voice of the Buddha Way to be heard by all. Now we have become true arhats, for everywhere among the heavenly and human beings, devils and Brahmas of the various worlds, we deserve to receive offerings. The World-Honored One in His great mercy makes use of a rare thing, in pity and compassion, teaching and converting, bringing benefit to us. In numberless millions of Kalpas (cycles of ages) who could ever repay Him.

00:15:27

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 3 of 3

“Because we know that Israel needs to be a light for all the nations in the world, like the Bible said. And how we can be a light for a lot of people, ‘a light to the nations’? Lead by example. That’s all.” So tell me regarding sacrifices in religion. Are there any quotes that clearly mean that God doesn’t need people to sacrifice animals in any way? “Yes, we have a lot of them. ‘…To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto Me? saith the LORD; I am full of the burnt-offerings of rams, and the fat of the fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he-goats.’ Of course there are many more. Letter from the President of Israel, His Excellency Reuven Rivlin (vegetarian). To: Asa Keisar. “…I am very hopeful that over the next few years more and more people will join your righteous journey and that soon, the Jewish people and the State of Israel will be a light among the Nations of the world and be proud, among other things, of the compassionate and conscientious policies towards animals. (In the President’s handwriting: ‘I am a Vegetarian!’)”

From Alice Bailey’s The Reappearance of the Christ: “The Doctrine of the Coming One,” Part 1 of 3

00:11:40

From Alice Bailey’s The Reappearance of the Christ: “The Doctrine of the Coming One,” Part 1 of 3

Born in 1880, Alice Bailey in her youth was a devoted Christian who later developed an extensive knowledge and practice of Theosophy. In 1919, at the age of 39, she began a spiritual journey of inner telepathic communications with the Great Ascended Master Djwal Khul, also called “The Tibetan” or “Master D.K.” Today we will read from one of Alice Bailey’s books written in cooperation with Master Djwal Khul, titled “The Reappearance of the Christ,” published in 1948. “Right down the ages, in many world cycles and in many countries (and today in all) great points of tension have occurred which have been characterized by a hopeful sense of expectancy. Someone is expected and His coming is anticipated. Always in the past, it has been the religious teachers of the period who have fostered and proclaimed this expectancy and the time has always been one of chaos and difficulty, of a climaxing point at the close of a civilization or culture and when the resources of the old religions have seemed inadequate to meet men’s difficulties or to solve their problems. The coming of the Avatar, the advent of a Coming One and, in terms of today, the reappearance of the Christ are the keynotes of the prevalent expectancy.”

Ascending to the Upper World: Excerpt from Book VII of “The Republic” by Plato (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

00:13:18

Ascending to the Upper World: Excerpt from Book VII of “The Republic” by Plato (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

The Venerated Socrates was born in Athens, Greece circa 470 BC. Many people consider Him to be the father of Western philosophy. Today we’ll read an excerpt from Book Vll of “The Republic,” in which the Venerated Socrates and Glaucon converse on the subject of transitioning from darkness to an upper world of light and reason. This is Plato’s well-known allegory of the cave, describing how the philosopher is like a prisoner who, once freed, would require a new understanding of reality. “My opinion is that in the world of knowledge the idea of good appears last of all, and is seen only with an effort; and, when seen, is also inferred to be the universal author of all things beautiful and right, parent of light and of the Lord of light in this visible world, and the immediate source of reason and truth in the intellectual; and that this is the power upon which he who would act rationally either in public or private life must have his eye fixed. Moreover, I said, you must not wonder that those who attain to this beatific vision are unwilling to descend to human affairs; for their souls are ever hastening into the upper world where they desire to dwell.”

Ascending to the Upper World: Excerpt from Book VII of “The Republic” by Plato (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

One of Plato’s most famous and influential philosophical works is titled “The Republic.” It features valuable dialogues between Socratres and others mainly on the topic of justice, and also the philosopher’s journey to acquiring higher knowledge. We now continue with our selection from Socrates’ dialogue with Glaucon from “The Republic,” which further elaborates the allegory of the cave. “And whereas the other so-called virtues of the soul seem to be akin to bodily qualities, for even when they are not originally innate they can be implanted later by habit and exercise, the virtue of wisdom more than anything else contains a Divine element which always remains, and by this conversion is rendered useful and profitable; or, on the other hand, hurtful and useless. Then, I said, the business of us who are the founders of the State will be to compel the best minds to attain that knowledge which we have already shown to be the greatest of all – they must continue to ascend until they arrive at the good; but when they have ascended and seen enough we must not allow them to do as they do now.”

00:11:40

From Alice Bailey’s The Reappearance of the Christ: “The Doctrine of the Coming One,” Part 2 of 3

We now continue with the mind-illuminating and still up-to-date spiritual revelations from the book “The Reappearance of the Christ.” The second part of “Chapter One – The Doctrine of the Coming One” will reveal to us more on the way of the Messengers of God, when They come down into our world by the deep invocation of the Earthlings’ souls. In particular, Alice Bailey writes about the Avatar of Love known as Lord Jesus Christ and predicts His reappearance on Earth. “Ever down the ages, and at every great human crisis, always in the hours of necessity, at the founding of a new race, or in the awakening of a prepared humanity to a new and wider vision, the Heart of God – impelled by the Law of Compassion – sends forth a Teacher, a world Savior, an Illuminator, an Avatar, a transmitting Intermediary, a Christ. He gives the message which will heal, which will indicate the next step to be taken by the race of men, which will illumine a dark world problem and give to man an expression of some hitherto unrealized aspect of divinity. Upon this fact of the continuity of revelation and upon the sequence of this progressive manifestation of the divine Nature, is based the doctrine of Avatars, divine Messengers, divine Appearances and Saviors.”

From Alice Bailey’s The Reappearance of the Christ: “The Doctrine of the Coming One,” Part 3 of 3

Today we’ll read the rest of Chapter One from Alice Bailey’s book “The Reappearance of the Christ” in which a wonderful prediction is presented of great changes after Christ returns and a new time of peace on Earth as never known before. “When the Christ, the Avatar of Love, makes His reappearance then will the ‘Son’s of men who are now the Sons of God withdraw Their faces from the shining light and radiate that light upon the sons of men who know not yet they are the Sons of God.’ Then shall the Coming One appear, His footsteps hastened through the valley of the shadow by the One of [awe-inspiring] power Who stands upon the mountain top, breathing out love eternal, light supernal and peaceful, silent Will. ‘Then will the sons of men respond. Then will a newer light shine forth into the dismal, weary vale of Earth. Then will new life course through the veins of men, and then will their vision compass all the ways of what may be.’ ‘So peace will come again on Earth, but a peace unlike anything known before. Then will the will-to-good flower forth as understanding, and understanding blossom as goodwill in men.’”
