Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 19 - Against Universal Religious Tenets

00:17:22

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 19 - Against Universal Religious Tenets

Well-versed in many religious teachings and practices, Supreme Master Ching Hai has graciously explained this core principle. “There are Ten Commandments in the Bible. The first one is ‘Thou shalt not kill.’ When we kill any living being, we commit the act of kill. As long as it has life, it counts as killing. It doesn’t say ‘not to kill people’; it says ‘not to kill,’ meaning not to take any life. Similarly, in Buddhism, the first precept is the most important and it is also not to kill.” “And in Buddhism, the law of cause and effect is absolute and exact. Whatever you do to others, it will be done to us in some way or another. Not only Buddhism, Christians say the same, ‘As you sow, so shall you reap.’ And any other religion you look carefully, you will see the law of karma, the cause and effect: whatever you do, it will be done to you. Therefore, Confucius said, ‘Do not do to others what you do not desire for yourself.’ Because He also knew the law of cause and effect - meaning whatever you do, you will get the result, the bad or good.” “Most of the time we study but we do not practice. For example, Christianity, the Bible says ‘Thou shall not kill’ and ‘do not be among the meat eaters and wine drinkers.’ Not be among them even, not to talk about become one of them, like meat eaters. These are very simple things, but I think many of us have overlooked. And the Buddha also taught us to be vegetarian, not to eat any sentient beings at all because they’re all our relatives and friends – meaning we are all interconnected. Hinduism teaches the same, Jainism teaches the same: avoid killing of any manner.” “Obviously, the eating of any kind of animals, sentient beings is absolutely forbidden in all main belief systems and holy teachings. Yet too many of God’s children, or religious believers, are not following these basic guidelines, because we have been led astray by misconceptions that we need to eat the flesh of animals, fish, eggs and milk to be healthy. The opposite is true – it has been proven in scientific and clinical studies that consuming animals causes innumerable diseases in humans, such as cancers, all kinds of cancers and heart diseases, thus early death, and endless sorrow, suffering before that. Our original diet, as per the Garden of Eden, is the vegan diet. It promotes both physical and mental and spiritual wellbeing. We can live happy, healthy lives, thriving purely on plant foods.”

Shining World Compassion Award: Fawaz Kanaan of Save Dubai Stray Cats

Cats are beautiful, sensitive and majestic animals with extraordinary abilities. However, as cats have adapted to becoming human companions, they do not fare well when left to fend for themselves outside. Roaming the streets comes with many dangers, including starvation, exposure to a multitude of diseases, other aggressive animals, etc. The number of stray cats in the Emirates has recently reached a hundred thousand, and in Dubai, tens of thousands. Over the past 20 years, Mr. Fawaz Kanaan has been feeding and rescuing stray cats from the streets of Dubai. Working nights and weekends as an event organizer and a rock DJ frees up time for him to help animals. “The ones that needed to be treated, I bring them to the vet. We treat them, we put them back in the same spot.” Through social media platforms such as Facebook, Mr. Kanaan has raised awareness and helped many cats find loving homes, both locally and internationally, including in Canada, the United States, Russia, Germany, Belgium and the UK. Deeply grateful for his compassionate initiatives, Supreme Master Ching Hai presented Mr. Kanaan the Shining World Compassion Award. "Dear Fawaz, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to you the Shining World Compassion Award for saving, then re-locating felines. This Award is presented in recognition of your impressive initiative to rescue stray cats from the streets of Dubai, then re-home them into forever loving homes. Your untiring efforts herald a new era of empathy and harmonious co-existence with our precious animal friends." "May Allah shower you and all involved with all love and blessing. With Great Honor, Love and Blessings in Allah’s Grace Supreme Master Ching Hai." "To Supreme Master Ching Hai, I really want to say a big thank You for this award and for this recognition. I’m honored, to be honest. I hope this message will reach everyone, animal lovers, and non-animal lovers so they will be animal lovers."

Use Our Wisdom, Part 2 of 10

Use Our Wisdom, Part 2 of 10

Because building something big is disturbing the earth a lot and sacrifices many trees and plants and insects, and maybe birds or squirrels, their area. They’ve been living in there. And you never know when they have their nests or something, and babies just born, or their eggs. It’s not a very nice thing for them.There was a former vice president of Taiwan (Formosa), she came to visit me again just a few days ago. No, last week. I think it was Saturday last week. And then we talked and then she told me many things and I told her things. And she said people should do this, do that. Other organizations, they’re planning to build this, build that, like temple stuff. I said, “We don’t build anything anymore. These things already exist, so we use them.” Because building something big is disturbing the earth a lot and sacrifices many trees and plants and insects, and maybe birds or squirrels, their area. They’ve been living in there. And you never know when they have their nests or something, and babies just born, or their eggs. It’s not a very nice thing for them. I don’t really like building anything. It costs too much manpower, time, finance, and the earth. It costs something to the environment. I don’t always feel very comfortable building anything. That’s why whenever I find a cave or whatever’s simple, I like to stay there. I feel happier that way, that I don’t disturb anyone at all. But your brothers and sisters tell me, “It’s the twenty-first century already. You don’t have to live in a cave anymore, Master.” I said, “Why? I’m a cavewoman. Everybody knows that since a long time already. I got used to it.” But there’s a cave here. It has already served its time. It’s getting dangerous now to stay there, so they dug me out. But still, I don’t really feel like moving, but I don’t want everyone to get worried about my safety. So, it’s sensible to move out. Twenty-first century.We had 20 many centuries, not just 21. Twenty-one is counted since the Lord Jesus Christ only. Before that, we existed a long, long, long time. Many civilizations came and went. Many Masters came and went, either anonymously or recorded in history. So many. In the beginning, we came here from the Brahman Heavens. That was the beginning of humankind. We could fly. We had magical power. We could communicate telepathically without ears. We could see thousands of miles away. And then we began to taste this and that. And then we ate more solid food, and then we became more solid. That’s why we cannot fly. And then we even began to eat raw meat, kill other beings, lesser beings, to eat. And then, after that, we discovered fire and then we ate more because it maybe tasted better. And then we discovered other plants, combined with the meat, and so on and so forth. And then our body became coarser and coarser, and heavier and heavier, and our mind also became clouded. Our soul, because it’s connected with the mind and the body, also felt dragged down. And that’s the result of us: the way we look, the way we behave right now. And then, because we liked to eat more and more, we began to fight with each other for food. And then we needed houses because the body became weaker. The immune system – used to be more refined, more holy, more wholesome – became weaker and weaker with each generation, with each day that passed, because we ate too many different things and animals and stuff.And then we had to fight with each other for survival. And then we needed governments to regulate the laws that make the rules. And then we needed the police to keep the rules. And then the ones who don’t understand the rules are thrown in prison and get angry, come out and revolt, etc. And the more and more karma all the time. So, even now after initiation, we still have the karma. Even though the maya’s gone, the karma is already there, it cannot disentangle from the body because it’s like tearing your flesh. To squeeze out the blood or try to squeeze out the blood out of your flesh, something like that. It would be horribly painful. Physically speaking or even spiritually speaking, it’s impossible.You can stretch out, baby. Stretch it out or I’ll show you how. I cannot. Stretch it out. What is it? (From Your attendant.) Oh, let me think. I’ll give him the key. I forgot. I forgot that they came back, so we locked the house. Can you please give it to him, to the person who gave you the note? (OK.) Thank you. Tell him, “Not one key missing.” Just joking. I can trust them. If they’d like to take my dress, then I will have an excuse not to wear it anymore. It would be nice. That’s the only valuable thing there. I don’t think they want to. And then they will talk like the sisters.Sometimes they come to my house, they help me to clean the house when I don’t have a lot of time, or when I need the muscle to move some furniture. And then they wear the gown and the gloves and all that, and the hats, you know, those kind of hats for cooking, so the hair doesn’t fall out. And they also wear special shoes to come in the house, so I don’t have to clean again. And they wear gloves, so I don’t have to smell their sweat. There are two different people; they smell different. One person is already unbearable. Men, they smell stronger than women. I don’t know why. What’s wrong? What did you eat? What did you guys eat? (They sweat.) They sweat? You don’t sweat? Sure, they work harder than women. Breadwinner and stuff. And then we criticize, like I did last week. I said, “The smell put me off.” But they have to sweat, they work harder. And don’t ever try to smell their socks. You will faint. Normally, [when] they come to my house, they wear slippers to come in but their socks are still on. And then even if they work right at the entrance, I still smell it. I said, “Did you change your socks today?” He said, “Oh, sorry, Master. No time. Urgent to come here. Can You smell from there, Master?” I said, “Of course!” Why do you think I live alone? Single still. They sweat so easily. So, they wear the gown, like overalls, so they don’t lean on my sofa or whatever, or their socks might touch something. Sometimes they forgot to bring their slippers, so I said, “OK, never mind. Just go in with socks. Don’t go in with the dirty shoes, then it’s OK.” Because the shoes are sometimes muddy. They go to the public toilet and stuff like that. So they went in with their socks. Three days after, I still smelled it! If I have no time to clean, then I smell it for three days. It’s not so strong but it’s there, and I know it is because it’s not mine. Anyway, last week I was just being a little bit bad joker. Forgive me, guys?I do love you. Love and like are different things. So, I cannot just love and like at the same time. Or sometimes I can like but not love. Very difficult to love and like together. I don’t know why. Don’t ask me. That’s why I was wondering how you stay married so long. I really admire you so much. I really, truly mean it. I really mean it. (Karma.) Karma. Yeah. Possible. And not just those who stay because of children or because of together banking account or mortgage the same house or it’s a pity to leave this fancy car. It’s not that, but those who love, really love, love, love, love so much. And then one time, one of your brothers asked me, “Master, You still feel like You love somebody?” I said, “What? I don’t know what love is.” Really, I really don’t. The way he asked about love, I don’t know that love anymore.I love everyone, everything, every being, but I don’t know that kind of love. That’s very narrow, actually. The moment you say you love somebody and he loves you back, it begins creeping in, this possessiveness and anxiety and jealousy. “Does he really love me? He loves me. He loves me not.” “She loves me. She loves me not. Don’t know. Not sure.” “Why is he coming home late today? He loves me. He goes out. He goes with somebody. He doesn’t go with somebody. He sits somewhere in the coffee [shop] alone, maybe because we fought last night. Oh, man!” No end. There is no end to all these stories. It begins like that, even if you don’t want to. Even the most loving couple, sometimes it’s creeping in your mind, just to make trouble.The mind makes trouble. And woe to the man if he just side looks at another woman. Even if she’s not pretty, you think she is. That is the problem. And even if another man doesn’t look all that attractive, but the husband thinks, “Why is she looking at him? Or she just pretends to look in that direction, but she’s looking at him, isn’t she?” And you think he is attractive. In your mind, he is. Maybe she doesn’t care. Many times, I talked to people outside, the married couples; they really value each other. Not that everybody just goes out and are always sidetracked, and looking at other women, or desiring the other person. It’s not really like that. They really like and love each other, and it’s a happy thing. It’s a very good thing. In this life, it’s very lonely. If you don’t have some good neighbors with you, or friends who come and go in your house, you will feel very lonely to stay in a flat all by yourself. And then you come out, and then somebody begins talking to you, and then you feel like, “Oh, this person may be my company, my life companion.” Stuff like that. The mind keeps saying things. So, I know why on Sundays you come here. Maybe nobody comes and talks to you. No need, right? Now you have a lot of friends. So, come back to the story.And after we became heavier and heavier, our minds became duller and duller, and all the senses became more real, more real and then they began to control us. Like, the nose loves to smell something pleasant; the mouth wants to eat something nice. The more you eat, the more you want, and then slowly, slowly, we eat a lot. And then we know much less than we did before. And we have less capability than we did before. I mean, real capability.Before, whatever we wanted, we just wanted it, it would come. And now, we can pray, and we can work hard for two, three years, then we can get what we want, with a mortgage even. Thank you so much! And then work hard again to pay interest. And if you lose your job, yeah, yeah, you know. In some countries, you could become homeless just like that, overnight. And you lose your house, you lose everything because everything is on loan, or at least half loan, not paid completely.When I was in America, I saw many people, they advertised in the newspaper or something, “Please come take my house if you can afford to pay so-much, so-much per month. Please come, it’s free for you. Just continue to pay, I cannot afford.” Is that true? Right, brothers? (Yes.) I felt so sour in my heart. My God, they worked so hard. They paid halfway or two-thirds already, but if they could not continue, then the bank took over or whomever. I thought, my God, it should not happen like this, especially in America! We, in many countries, have the idea that America is a very rich country, very secure for everyone, but it isn’t always like that. When it comes to recession time, they call it or something like that, people just lose jobs, and they don’t have enough money even to take care of any other things, except for themselves. And the whole family sometimes moves to some charitable shelter or something. And once you’ve lost the job, once you’ve lost your house, you have no address. You cannot go find a job if you don’t have a mailing address. One thing leads to another.

In today’s news, Belgium donates ambulances to Rwanda, United Kingdom pledges support for COVID-19 vaccine distribution, researchers study positive aspects of pandemic lockdowns in China, Australian university develops advanced concrete without cement, Franciscan nun runs Chicago marathon on treadmill, supermarket chain in Netherlands add more vegan products, and conservationists campaign to ban traps on public land in United States.In the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association Relief News from China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea… In 2019, severe drought in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea caused a shortage in food supplies of rice and maize, the country’s main crops. Then three typhoons in 2020 damaged grain fields across the land, causing even more concern about food security.In October 2019, members of the Supreme Master Ching Hai Association in China formed a relief team and purchased an initial 30 tons of rice, which was then delivered to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Upon hearing of the continued vulnerability of the affected people, our Benevolent Supreme Master Ching Hai in December 2019 kindly offered US$45,000 and requested that our Association members provide further assistance. Using these funds as well as donations from Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association members in Asia, 200 tons of high-quality rice and 100,000 protective face masks were purchased, all valued at approximately US$177,000. Although the COVID-19 pandemic caused inevitable material shortages and delays, the relief team’s efforts were met with Master’s grace every step of the way. The vendors for both the rice and the face masks were willing to provide them for less than market price. Together with port officials and storage supervisors, they jointly offered free loading and unloading, as well as free storage and truck transportation in China. Even when the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea closed all its borders to limit virus exposure, the relief team was miraculously able to find the one agency that was still allowed through.An official ceremony to present the relief assistance was held on October 20, 2020 in Dandong, the border city between China and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. In attendance were delegates from the intermediary agency of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea with the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, officials from the Consulate General in Shenyang, China, and a representative from the Red Cross Society of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Also present were the vendors, port officials, and storage personnel, as well as relief team members of the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association. Our relief team members are deeply grateful to Master for Her compassionate care for the people of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. We also appreciate the generous assistance of the vendors and all officials, as well as our Association members’ unified efforts. May the dignified people of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea soon be restored to lives of plentiful stability, in the grace of the Divine.Rwandan hospitals receive 40 new ambulances. The government of Belgium, a Shinning World Leadership Award for Animal Protection laureate, has long supported Rwanda’s health care sector through various projects, including the construction of clinics and hospitals. In a move to improve access to medical services, especially for individuals living in rural areas, Belgium’s development agency Enabel was planning to donate 10 emergency vehicles annually for the next four years. But the arrival of COVID-19, amid concerns that Ebola might cross the border from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, heightened the need for additional medical transportation, motivating Enabel to alter their commitment plan. His Excellency Ambassador Benoît Ryelandt of Belgium commented, “... I am very happy that we could eventually proceed through a fast-track procurement and deliver all 40 ambulances at once.” Our loving gratefulness, Belgium for your generosity to the open-hearted Rwandan people. May Heaven’s uplifting grace flow freely toward the promising central African nation, bringing peace and contentment.International access to coronavirus vaccine receives British funding. In a pre-recorded address to the United Nations General Assembly, His Excellency Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and a Shining World Leadership for Caring Award laureate, pledged more than £500 million to the COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access Facility (COVAX). This agency will ensure that all participating nations will be able to receive a reliable supply of viable vaccines. The prime minister stated, “The health of every country depends on the whole world having access to a safe and effective vaccine, wherever a breakthrough might occur; and … we will do everything in our power to bring this about.” Mr. Johnson also promised an additional £340 million to the World Health Organization (WHO) over the next four years. This represents a 30% increase in support, making the UK one of WHO’s most generous donors. The United Kingdom is a Shining World Wise Leadership Award and Shining World Leadership Awards for Animal Protection and Kindness laureate. Our heartfelt accolades, Your Excellency Boris Johnson, COVAX and the World Health Organization. In Divine benediction, we pray that all people and economies will soon regain health and strength.Up next, researchers study positive aspects of pandemic lockdowns in China. We’ll take a moment to thank the ward clerks, who perform receptionist and clerical duties in hospital nursing units – answering telephones, distributing mail and greeting visitors. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for more alleviating news.Hallo, virtuous viewers, it’s Logan the vegan Leopard. Since I became vegan, I’ve noticed people are kinder to me. Give it a try and see for yourself! Here's an important tip for everyone. Wearing a face covering is part of daily life in many places, and there are different types to choose from. If you use disposable masks, did you know that animals can become entangled in them? With a little mindfulness you can make life easier for some of our smaller co-inhabitants. Before you throw a mask away, simply snip the ear loops! Another way you can practice being a good planetary citizen is by selecting eco-friendly face coverings, such as reusable cloth masks. Just be sure to wash them regularly and dry completely. Love you so much for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! And thank you for your attention. Here’s the weather around our beautiful globe.COVID-19 protocols in China yield cleaner air and fewer hospital admissions for other illnesses. China was the first country to require the lockdown of cities and even whole provinces at the beginning of the pandemic. In the absence of transportation and industry, the nation’s air quality improved significantly. An international team of scientists found that between early January and mid-February 2020 there was a 36% reduction in nitrous oxide emissions and much lower levels of inhalable particulate matter. The authors of this report estimated there were 60,000 fewer respiratory ailments like asthma attacks and a corresponding 5,000 fewer hospital admissions. The implications for managing future outbreaks are that lockdowns not only minimize the spread of disease and enhance air quality, but also improve the availability of hospital beds and services. Thank you, researchers, for your fascinating findings. May all nations commit to safeguarding our precious Earth, with blessings of the Providence.University team creates new composite construction material. Traditional concrete is a mixture of gravel, sand, cement and water. Because cement is made from roasted limestone, the inherent free lime in concrete sewage pipes tends to attract fat, grease and non-biodegradable materials that lead to clogs and corrosion. Now, scientists at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, have developed a zero-cement concrete that reduces corrosion by 96% and is eco-friendly. The formula includes recycled industrial byproducts such as slag, nano-scaled silica particles and fly-ash, and exceeds international standards for strength. The developers are seeking partners in industry and government for advancing their material to be completely acid resistant. Congratulations and gratitude, RMIT University research team, on your concrete improvement! We foresee studies like yours boosting humanity’s progress toward wiser and more durable construction, in harmony with the Divine.Marathon nun runs her own race to serve God. Sister Stephanie Baliga competed on track and cross-country teams while attending the University of Illinois in the United States. After a profound spiritual experience inspired her to become a nun, she continued her running and started a team at Mission of Our Lady of the Angels. Sister Stephanie has run the Chicago Marathon nine times and was preparing to participate again when it was canceled due to COVID-19. Determined not to be denied, the good nun decided to raise money for community outreach by running the standard 26.2 miles (42.195 kilometers) on a treadmill. The event was livestreamed from the church basement, took 3 hours and 33 minutes and raised more than US$144,000. You are amazing, Sister Stephanie, and we are grateful for your outstanding commitment to caring for others. Blessings will abound in your parish as God’s love brings enduring solace.Coming up, supermarkets in Netherlands add more vegan products. We will take a moment to sample the Cocolo dancing drama tradition of the Dominican Republic, a UNESCO-inscribed Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. More hopeful news when we return! Please stay with us here on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Happy News for a Contented World.Dutch supermarket chain expands animal-free offerings. Albert Heijn already has a fairly large selection of vegan options, but the company knows that more than half of the people in the Netherlands are flexitarians and want more vegetables and plant-based products in their diets. So, the country’s leading food retailer is bringing in an additional 70 items under its own brand that are suitable for vegans eating breakfast, lunch or dinner. New selections will include cheeses, spreads, sausages and burgers – all without animal ingredients. The move also reflects Albert Heijn’s commitment as a partner of the Green Protein Alliance to promote the benefits of getting protein from plant sources. Way to go, Albert Heijn, on your advocacy of compassionate eating. You have our sincere appreciation for boosting the range of food choices that will hasten our arrival at World Vegan, in Heaven’s light and joy.Nonprofit organization proposes ban on traps. The National Wildlife Refuge System in the United States was established to protect the country’s wild animals and plants. It includes 567 individual nature reserves, as well as 38 wetland habitats, with more than 4,000 kilometers of walking trails. Regrettably, trapping is permitted at 216 of the sanctuaries and poses a threat to visitors and their four-legged companions. Born Free USA is a leading wildlife charity dedicated to compassionate conservation. They have launched a campaign, TrapFreeTrails, to end the use of traps on public land. Angela Grimes, the organization’s CEO, stated, “‘Refuge’ should mean just that; that both animals and people are safe from harm while within their boundaries.” Thank you, Ms. Grimes and Born Free USA, for raising awareness of this issue. We pray the government will soon see how it can provide better protection, in Celestial wisdom.Here is a joke told by our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, to relax your bones. It's called, “Books for the Master.”“What kind of books do You want, Master?”“Don’t care, any will do.”The boy went and brought back a couple of books. But the Master told him to get some more. After the Master asked him to bring more the third time, the puzzled attendant asked:“But Master, You have enough books to read the whole night over already with these!”“Who talked about reading? I just use them as a pillow.”!!And now we have a heartline from Xiang-Xiang in China: Hallo, the greatest and most compassionate Master, and those working at Supreme Master Television, who are like my family members. With profound gratitude, we thank our Master for bringing light to all beings of the Universe. Master has gone through countless hardships which no one knows to liberate sentient beings who have been bound to this world life after life and elevate all beings in the universe. I cannot use the worldly language to describe the greatness of Master.Instead, I will simply share a miracle that Master has brought us recently. Since last winter, we have taken actions to protect animals. On November 24 last year, when Master ended Her retreat, we received great power from Master. We went to a slaughterhouse and rescued the cattle and horses that were to be killed. After listening to what we said, the owner repented right away and promised he would stop killing animals and would change his business after Chinese New Year. On December 10, the slaughterhouse owner suddenly called me and said that since we went there and shared with him the principles of karma and reincarnation, he had been feeling very bad about what he did. So he decided to change his career immediately. He had 35 cattle at that time and he did not slaughter them. Instead, he sold them to farmers who could raise them in the mountains even though the sale was a loss to him. However, there were two blind cows, two horses, and a little donkey which no one wanted to take and would be sold for meat the next morning. If we could save them, it would be great. Because we are not rich and what we can do is limited, we contacted a Pure Land Buddhist who has been rescuing foxes in the Changli fur market. Next morning, they, together with Tibetan monks, rushed to the slaughterhouse and saved the five lives. The owner of the slaughterhouse took 500 yuan (~US$75) for saving animals and closed his operation for raising farm animals and the slaughterhouse. He then converted to Buddhism.Our team also participated in the rescue action to save foxes in the Changli fur market on December 8. The owner of the largest breeding farm decided to close his breeding business immediately and stopped killing animals. In fact, our team started joining the action to rescue foxes on December 4. There are too many miracles. Many monks and Buddhist groups with great compassion across the country joined the efforts to organize a life-saving rescue campaign. Changli is the largest fur market in China, and until now we have rescued about 40,000 foxes from there. I thought to write a letter many times, but what we have done is so trivial. Thank You, Master, for Your great Love and the guidance from Your Wisdom. We will use real actions to love and protect Master. Thank you, the Supreme Master TV team, for your time, efforts, and selfless dedication. Xiang-Xiang from ChinaInspiring Xiang-Xiang, Our gratitude for your heartline. It is wonderful what we can achieve by working together to save the animals. Bravo to you all and may the Heavens bless you with continued success in your rescues of our beloved animal co-inhabitants. Her selfless bravery is a guiding Light for us all, and we applaud your determination and triumph. The Heavens are smiling down on those who work tirelessly to ensure animal welfare and we pray all the benevolent Chinese people soon become compassionate vegans and tenderly care for all animals. In Heaven’s Love, Supreme Master TV teamP.S. Master has some words for you: “Loving and Helpful Xiang-Xiang, I was so very moved when I heard of this endeavor to free the animals in China and that the slaughterhouse owner agreed to stop killing and change professions. It is my prayer all animals are freed one day very soon. Buddha’s infinite light to you and your co-citizens in resilient China.”We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal clips. Please send them via SupremeMasterTV.com/heartlineIt’s been a pleasure to have your company on Noteworthy News. May the Divine bestow simple peace and pure joy on your long life.

In 2019, severe drought in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea caused a shortage in food supplies of rice and maize, the country’s main crops. Then three typhoons in 2020 damaged grain fields across the land, causing even more concern about food security.In October 2019, members of the Supreme Master Ching Hai Association in China formed a relief team and purchased an initial 30 tons of rice, which was then delivered to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

The vendors for both the rice and the face masks were willing to provide them for less than market price. Together with port officials and storage supervisors, they jointly offered free loading and unloading, as well as free storage and truck transportation in China. Even when the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea closed all its borders to limit virus exposure, the relief team was miraculously able to find the one agency that was still allowed through.An official ceremony to present the relief assistance was held on October 20, 2020 in Dandong, the border city between China and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. In attendance were delegates from the intermediary agency of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea with the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, officials from the Consulate General in Shenyang, China, and a representative from the Red Cross Society of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Also present were the vendors, port officials, and storage personnel, as well as relief team members of the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association. Our relief team members are deeply grateful to Master for Her compassionate care for the people of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. We also appreciate the generous assistance of the vendors and all officials, as well as our Association members’ unified efforts. May the dignified people of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea soon be restored to lives of plentiful stability, in the grace of the Divine.

The Supreme Divine Nature, The Beginningless Beginning: Excerpts from “A Conversation Among Five Travelers Concerning Life’s True Happiness” by Hryhorii Skovoroda (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

The Supreme Divine Nature, The Beginningless Beginning: Excerpts from “A Conversation Among Five Travelers Concerning Life’s True Happiness” by Hryhorii Skovoroda (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

“Let us first seek out the spark of God’s truth within us, which, lighting up our darkness, will send us to the holy waters of Siloam to which the prophet summons us: ‘Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings...’ If the heart is filled up with a bitter sea of opinions, if a pit of evil has swallowed up the soul, what light can we hope for among the dark swarm of sorrows? What mirth and sweetness can we hope for where there is no light? What peace where there is neither life nor mirth? What life and peace if there is no God? What God without the spirit of truth and the spirit of dominion? What spirit of truth without unworldly thoughts and a pure heart?” “My friends, let us fully live out our lives and let our senseless days and minutes flow past. We take the trouble to get whatever is needful to the flux of our days; but our chief concern should be for the peace of our soul, that is, for its life, health, and salvation. What is the use of ruling over the universe if we lose our own soul? What will you find in the world so precious and profitable that you would venture to exchange your soul for it?” “In man the head of all things is the human heart. It is that which is most truly human in man: everything else is peripheral, as Jeremiah teaches: ‘Deep is the heart of man (above all things); it is man, and who can know it?’ Please, take note that the deep heart is man...” “You see that a man who has destroyed the peace of his heart has destroyed his head and root. Is he not just like a nut, the kernel of which has been eaten away by worms, so that it has no strength, only a shell? The Lord speaks to these impoverished people with such compassion in Isaiah: ‘Come ye near unto me, ye who have lost your hearts and are far from the truth.’” “This is alien and contrary to its living nature. Thought, like a traveler on the road, seeks its own likeness among the dead elements, and intensifying, rather than slaking its thirst by base diversions, it moves the more rapidly from corrupt material nature toward the Supreme Divine nature, the beginningless beginning or principle which is akin to it, so that having been purified by its radiance and by the flame of its secret vision, it may free itself from its bodily earth and earthly body.”

African American Veganism: Going Back to Their Roots

African American Veganism: Going Back to Their Roots

Historically, the diet of the ancestors of African Americans, was largely plant-based. This way of life was truly at one with nature as African’s lived in regions that were abundant with food that could be collected for their needs. Tadzoka Pswarayi, an International Development Consultant, and social and tech entrepreneur, explains this concept very well in her article entitled: “African vegans are a return to tradition,” where she shared her insightful opinion on how the diet of African Americans has changed since its origins in Africa. “Before farming started, Africans were known to be hunters and gatherers (the foundation of the paleo diet.) They would gather leaves, roots, tubers, corns, rhizomes, bulbs, seeds, buds, shoots, stems, pods or edible flowers. Nowadays, most African societies are carnatic (centered on meat) and meat features daily in the diets of most middle-class African families. But this culture is colonial. Until about five centuries ago, Africa remained mainly dependent on traditional food.” Famous African American vegan advocate, Louis Hunter. Mr. Hunter was in a very difficult situation, which led him to meeting Sarah and Dan Woodcock, who introduced him to veganism, and eventually helped him open the very first black-owned vegan restaurant called “Trio” in Minneapolis, USA. On the morning of May 31, Mr. Hunter fed more than 300 vegan meals, with love and compassion, to the peaceful protestors in the streets, many of whom had supported him during his difficult time. Mr. Hunter’s greatest ambition is to see people live healthier, happier lives and he believes the vegan diet can do that. The African American public health nutritionist and author Tracey McQuirter, who has been a vegan for 33 years, used her insights and knowledge, and created the “African American Vegan Starter Guide,” to share for free with the whole world, what a vegan diet can do for all of us. This guide is specifically for the African Americans, based on their cultural cuisines, however, it can be enjoyed by anyone, as the recipes and guidelines are a wealth of information for all. As our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai once shared in the lecture, “We create everything that we want, if we live but in accordance with the law of the universe. Such is the power of just being vegan. Because that means we spare life, we want life, we want constructive energy, we don’t want destruction. So, vegan is the answer. This is something all Africans, and all citizens of the world can do. Be vegan. Be a world-saver.”

Use Our Wisdom, Part 1 of 10

Use Our Wisdom, Part 1 of 10

Just for the mind; otherwise, why? There is no need for language. Just like initiation, no need for language. Whatever we perceive by the soul is the best. And it’s the True Teaching.Hallo, everybody. (Hallo, Master.) Not bad. Not bad, still able to get up. Because my dog ran away last night, I waited all night long for her to come back. So, I was a little worried. I was afraid that she would go out to fight with other dogs, but she came home eventually. That’s why I didn’t get enough rest. Now my eyes are still half open only. I cannot see things when I wear this, but it’s all right. Are you OK? (OK.) You can also sit like this. Are boys getting fewer? Great. (Hallo, Master.) (Thank You, Master, for coming to see us.) To see you. (Hallo, Master.) To see whom? I come to see them. Why would I come to see you? Why do I have to see you? Can’t I see them? Yeah. It’s funny. My shoe’s broken again. One. Hey. Hiya. Howdy. (Hallo, Master.) Hallo. Thank you. Amitabha.What’s new? Is there any good news? Have you prepared your questions? (Yes.) Have you? (Yes. Yes.) Come here to read them. If you don’t read them, I will lecture you. There’re many things to talk about. A lot of things since my arrival. Oh! This is high enough. It’s also correct to crack some jokes. Wonderful. Have you just arrived? I’ve been ready for quite a while. Forget it. Where is the person collecting questions? Where is the question collector? Hallo? (Master, they’re with the audio team.) OK. Hurry up and bring the questions over here. What team? (They’re with the audio team and will read from there.) Are they going to read from there? (Yes.) Why do they read from there but not from here? OK. Go ahead and read. This is very good if I don’t like to show myself. If I am tired and sleepy. Very good here. Just the right size. I think each one of you would find it very convenient.Go ahead and read. (I read a Buddhist sutra that said an ancient Buddha, called the Infinite Light Buddha, will come again to save beings. One time, when I attended Master’s lecture at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, I saw golden light emanating from Master’s whole body. It moved me to tears. I knew that I’d found the ancient Buddha that Shakyamuni Buddha had mentioned. Thank You, Master.) How can she be so sure about it? Was it written on my body? Was “the ancient Buddha” written on my body? I’m very modern. What do you mean by “ancient” Buddha? This and that all look alike. They all copy me. Very beautiful. OK. Congratulations. Congratulations. Then the more you go to Master’s lectures, the more you’ll see ancient Buddhas. But I’m very modern. Where does “old” come from? Well, I do have “mold” but nothing more. Yes, next one, please. Is there only one? (There’s another one.) The first one, stand up. The one that saw the ancient Buddha. Congratulations.And the second one. What is it? (Hallo, Master.) OK. (Three years ago, my husband saw Master coming to my house with the sun. He told me, “Master is here”. And he passed away the next day. When he passed away, I saw a great lotus flower coming to take him. Thank You, Master.) You’re welcome. Why are you so happy about your husband passing away? You didn’t sound sad at all. But it’s also right. He’s been liberated, and so are you. He passed away happily, and you are happy to stay. Spiritual practitioners are truly different. Any more? Any other questions?Yeah, don’t look. It’s always the same. When I come here, it’s always crying on one side. But at home, nothing happens, nothing. Oh yeah, sometimes it happens. Like Thursday or Friday, there were 12 people coming, and I got such a terrible stomach pain. Two of the Aulacese (Vietnamese) are sick, that’s why. Are you getting better already, the Aulacese (Vietnamese)? The two sick Aulacese (Vietnamese), are you better? If you’re sick, you should not come here. Number one, you are uncomfortable, cannot sit very long because it’s not a very luxurious place. Not like a holiday place. Number two, if you’re seriously sick, you might infect other people. That’s not fair. They came here to enjoy, to feel better, not to get sickness from you. Even I, got it last time. I mean, when I was in France, one of the sisters, she got the flu and then she passed it on to me, as a loving gift. I said, “Thank you so much.” It’s just in the air. After I told her, then she wore the mask, but she didn’t wear it before. When you sit together, you touch this and that, and sometimes you meditate very well and then you just “achoo” on the neighbor.Next one, please. (No more.) Huh? (There’re only two.) No more questions? (No.) Really? (Yes.) You’re all enlightened. Wow! Then what am I sitting here for? I speak only for those ignorant people. Since you’re all so enlightened, I am going home to sleep. (No.) Huh? What do you mean “no”? Are you controlling my life? Can’t I leave? OK. Then what do I do? Sit here, wait for mealtime? It’s another four and a half hours then. Wow! How interesting. Is it OK? It is not too high? Can you see my beautiful stomach then? (Yes.) Since you want to see everything, you want to know everything, you want to hear everything, so it’s a pity there’s a cover.So really, no questions? Wow! So, you make me work again today? I was thinking, if you ask questions, then I can keep talking also to answer your innermost quest. If I keep talking all the time… Sometimes also, during my talk, your questions are also being answered, right? Just that if you have something in your heart, you should ask. I know why you don’t want to ask, because you’re scared. Very good. You learn fast. Because if we sit here and listen to nonsense all the time, we’re fed up also. It’s OK if Master speaks nonsense but nobody else can. Did I ever say any nonsense stuff? A lot, huh? (No.) Anyway, just for the mind. Just for the mind; otherwise, why? There is no need for language. Just like initiation, no need for language. Whatever we perceive by the soul is the best. And it’s the True Teaching. Like when you do Quan Yin (meditating on the inner Heavenly Sound), you see the Voice, you hear the (inner Heavenly) Sound. No. You see the (inner Heavenly) Sound and you hear the (inner Heavenly) Light. Then you just automatically became wiser, more enlightened. It takes too long for my liking, but every day, you see a little bit, a little bit, a little bit. And then you can call yourself “enlightened saint” somehow. Some people boast that they already became Buddha. All right then. I have to read you a story.Sometimes your questions can inspire me to talk more and for everyone else. But since you’re so scared, then keep quiet. Don’t be scared. Everyone is different. There was somebody who asked nonsense, then he got what he deserved, but if you don’t ask nonsense, then you just ask. The worst is that you just go home, that’s all. Nothing ever happens to you. Not like in the old times, when you said some nonsense to the king, and he might invite your head to go somewhere else, apart from your… far away from your body. But here, we are very benevolent. What’s wrong with going home? I don’t see anything wrong. And if you don’t ever have to come here again, you save money. Or you feel sorry for the air company or something? Your husband or your wife will feel very happy. “He is not going; we save money. He takes me on a holiday to Hawaii or something. Nice.” If somebody took me to Hawaii or somewhere now, I’d feel very happy, happy. “Yeah. yeah, yeah! I am going.”Sometimes, I also want to escape, like my dog yesterday, last night. She escapes sometimes. Because in the new place, they did not make the fence very secure, not enough, and she always can find a little hole somewhere that we overlooked. And we put stones there, big concrete blocks. She somehow still can get away. And there is her little daughter, the skinniest one, she eats also, but she just doesn’t get fat. I mean, not round like the other dogs. Even her mother used to be like that, just skinny, skin and bones. You could count the ribs. And now she’s plump and round, and very beautiful. And she still continues, that little one.But she is very, very protective, so whenever the mother escapes, she also has to escape with her. I asked her, “Why do you have to do that? It’s good enough that the mother is stupid, why do you also become stupid?” She said, “No, I want to protect her because she went out alone. God knows what.” I said, “Yeah, she should know that. You should tell her not to go, not you follow her.” That girl, she is like a boy, like a tomboy – always jumpy, very curious about things, very adventurous, and very protective. So, last night they came, and then they just hung around, eating (vegan) snacks and stuff, and then after they finished, they just went around the garden, looking for places to dig and to go out. We blocked all the holes possible already. She still found a little hole somewhere and then she dug it bigger. And here they didn’t put cement underneath the fence, so she can dig because the earth is new, is soft, so she digs anytime.So, it made me worry so much. I couldn’t rest, I couldn’t meditate. I had to stay next to the gate, wait for them to come back, so that I could open the door for them to come in their room or come in my room. Wow! Last night they went very far, three and a half hours long. Normally, one hour they come back, but last night was very long. I worried they went out, maybe fighting with other dogs or other animals, stuff like that. Because the last one, not last one, but before last, she injured her eye inside not the lid but the inside of the eye – and it took several weeks to heal with the cone hat, wearing the cone hat. Like an ice cream cone. But this one is uncomfortable.Oh, it’s hot today, no? (Yes.) Can we have a little air con, please? Or somebody come fan me like the king in the old times. Both sides fanning. I guess I have to do everything myself, even zip my own dress, wear my own shoes. And it’s broken now. It didn’t look broken before; it looked new. It’s new! When I began to step right here on the threshold of the hall, immediately it broke. It’s laughing now, at me. You know why I have to wear high heels and dress up and all this? No? Why? (For people outside.) For people outside? (I mean, for the public.) Why? Not for people inside? Why? (I think it’s for the people, so they have an affinity with Your clothing or… Like people look at You, remind them of something.) Remind them of something? (Yes. That they’ve seen in their dream or vision.) Really? I don’t think so. They’d rather criticize. “What kind of monk who wears (clothes) like that?” The reason was that it’s in the contract, so that I have to spend more time and wearing things that I don’t really want to wear. Make a lot more time, more inconvenience, you know what I mean? Not like this, so simple. I tried before, but it didn’t work, so I have to go back to the contract. That’s what it is. Even now that maya is gone, but the contract is already signed. All the Heavens had to be witnesses and everything. So, we continue maybe a few more decades, and then I will take a very special dress and then finish, you know the one about two meters long, and maybe about this wide, and square. And when they close the lid, that’s it. You’re free. No. You’re free before that.It doesn’t work? That’s hot. (No.) It’s red? It’s red. OK. Now it’ cold. Earlier it was red, now it’s green That’s why it’s loud now. Okay, Thank you. What happened? Don’t hear very well? Yes! Thank you.Thank you, all of you. I wanted to thank you before I forgot. I want to thank you for working for the world through Supreme Master Television or with Supreme Master Television, doing hosting, doing scriptwriting or technical assisting, and all kinds of stuff. And some even help find new channels and sustain the channels. It’s very good, you’re getting there, you’re getting there. Pretty cool. Getting better now, grown up.Today, I was coming out here, and there were two guys driving me here – one driver and one just standing by in case the other driver drank too much water or something. And so I told them, “You know what? Today, I told them to ask questions, so I don’t have to work because otherwise, I always have to go out and read stories. I feel like I’m a kindergarten teacher. They just don’t grow up; they like stories and stuff.” Actually, all you have to do is very simple.

The US study recommends “responsible vitamin D supplementation based on personal needs, risk factors, and advice from personal physicians in accordance with existing Endocrine Society Guidelines.” Thank you, scientists from Boston University School of Medicine, for assisting the public in understanding the relationship between COVID-19 and vitamin D levels.

The Supreme Divine Nature, The Beginningless Beginning: Excerpts from “A Conversation Among Five Travelers Concerning Life’s True Happiness” by Hryhorii Skovoroda (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

The Supreme Divine Nature, The Beginningless Beginning: Excerpts from “A Conversation Among Five Travelers Concerning Life’s True Happiness” by Hryhorii Skovoroda (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Hryhorii Skovoroda was an 18th century philosopher, poet, and composer of religious music. A number of his writings can be found in his songs, several of which have been adapted to Ukrainian folk music. Skovoroda’s work contributed to the culture of both Russia and Ukraine. In recognition of his works and numerous contributions, Hryhorii Skovoroda’s portrait was printed on the second largest banknote in circulation in Ukraine, the 500-hryvnia note. We now share with you excerpts from his writings in “A Conversation Among Five Travelers Concerning Life’s True Happiness.” The Supreme Divine Nature, The Beginningless Beginning. “I humbly beg you to listen to this fable. Five travelers, guided by their guardian angel, came to the Kingdom of Peace and Love. Melchizedek, the king of this land, was in no way like other kings. There was nothing perishable in his kingdom, everything was eternal and pleasant down to the last hair, and his laws were wholly opposed to tyranny. A beautiful and shining arch marked the boundary of this blessed land, and on it was written: ‘The Primordial World.’” “Then they were led to the King himself. ‘I know your complaint before you make your petition,’ said the King of Peace. ‘In my realm there is neither sickness nor sorrow nor lamentation. You yourselves have brought this sorrow with you from the alien, heathen lands which are hostile to my land.’ Then He commanded his angels to take them away to the house of healing. There they took emetics for six days; on the seventh they were fully cured of their ills. Instead of sorrow, there was written on one heart, ‘Thy will be done’; on another, ‘Righteous art thou, O Lord, and upright thy judgments’; on a third, ‘Abraham believed in the Lord’; on a fourth, ‘I will praise thee forever’; on a fifth, ‘In everything give thanks.’” “Only in this house of healing can you find remedies to cleanse your heart of malicious and cruel enemies, of whom it is written: ‘A man’s enemies are the men of his own house.’ Your enemies are your own opinions, which have established their reign in your heart, constantly tormenting it; they murmur against God, slander and oppose Him, continually disparage the order that governs the world and attempt to restore the most ancient laws.”

Minister Audrey Tang: Using Technology to Enhance Democracy, Part 3 of 3

Minister Audrey Tang: Using Technology to Enhance Democracy, Part 3 of 3

On today’s program, Audrey begins by explaining how creative people can help to protect our planet. “I think there is a lot of room for designers, for artists, for people who are creative to find new and interesting ways to attract people to the idea that you need to take care of the planet and the people, in order to make a profit. So, the people on the planet before the profit, and it only becomes profitable if people find it interesting and attracting.” “But of course, for people to purchase a leather bag, they’re into some textile feelings, some touches of whatever nobility it conveys or whatever, right? So, you need to not only recreate such designer feelings in this new vegan leather, but also to add even more to it, just like people who prefer the Beyond Meat to meat, or the Impossible Burger to burger. One needs to feel like ‘beyond.’” “But people who are not vegan would prefer, for example, the Impossible Burger, not because it is vegan, but because it tastes great, right? And so, we need more creative types; we need more people who are into gastronomy, into design, into art, and so on, to show that this kind of lifestyle is preferable, not only because it’s ethical, but because it's fun.” Ms. Tang believes that a calm, quiet mind is essential for living a creative and productive life. Audrey explains that one of the best methods for calming the mind is meditation. “I practice Taoist meditation.” “So, I think it is very important for people to have a full night’s sleep in order to carefully integrate whatever we have learned in the daytime, so that by the time we wake up, we will be a more holistic person. If we get interrupted all the time during sleep, right before sleep and by alarm clocks, and so on, one would feel fragmented and therefore not that able to empathize or to take all the signs.” At the conclusion of the interview, we asked Audrey if she had some final words for our global audience. “I would then just wish the people watching the television a good time and live long and prosper. Thank you all for your work that you are doing for our environment. Be Veg, Go Green, 2 Save the Planet!”

Positive Changes in Countries Part 21 - Peaceful Governments, Peaceful Citizens: Ethiopia, Fiji, Finland

Located in a region known as the Horn of Africa, Ethiopia existed as a civilization millions of years ago, based on archaeological finds. Ethiopia achieved a wonderful stabilizing change when His Excellency, Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed forged a peace accord with neighboring country Eritrea in 2018. The following year, His Excellency’s efforts were recognized as he became not only a Nobel Peace Prize laureate but also a Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureate. The government of Ethiopia was also awarded a Shining World Leadership Award for Earth Protection for launching the first waste-to-energy plant in Africa. One organization that has also been working to improve the lives of both Ethiopian people and animals is the International Fund for Africa (IFA). Cofounded by Ethiopian Seble Nebiyeloul and Dr. Anteneh Roba of the USA, this organization offers nutritious plant-based solutions for communities in need. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present Dr. Anteneh Roba and Seble Nebiyeloul, the Shining World Compassion Award, with a humble, loving gift of US$10,000 towards your noble organization, the International Fund for Africa.” The Republic of Fiji is a beautiful archipelago country of over 300 islands in the South Pacific Ocean. In 2014, the Fijian government introduced a program giving free access to elementary and secondary education for all. Initiatives were also launched to help prepare students for professions that support the island nation’s sustainable economic growth. In addition, female students have been encouraged to enroll in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics classes for their equal opportunity in pursuing 21st century careers. Finland can be found in Northern Europe, next to the Baltic Sea. Thanks to the government’s support of environmental conservation, Finland ranks highly on the international list of clean, green countries. With government efforts toward sustainable forestry, over 70% of Finland’s land area is now tree covered. To further expand renewable energy development such as wind power, the Finnish Parliament has approved the phasing out of coal-fired power by the year 2029.

Heaven Is Here and Now, Part 4 of 4

Just you feel beautiful inside, I guess, because there’s nothing really. The Ganges you can have everywhere, not just that mountain. Nothing’s new in India, in the Himalayas. I just felt good there, felt so free. So free and so light. Lighthearted!In Dharamshala also, you can rent a room very cheaply, also a mud house. But I did not really enjoy that m
