In Shining World Compassion Award News from the United States…
A teenager from Newark, New Jersey, named Sir Darius Brown has helped hundreds of dogs find loving homes by making fashionable bow ties for them. Sir Darius was inspired to take action when he learned that animals who are not adopted from many shelters are sadly euthanized. The bow ties make the dogs stand out as individuals, thus increasing their chances of being adopted into forever homes. The young vegan entrepreneur’s hand-made bow ties have been donated to animal shelters across the United States and in the United Kingdom, while a portion of each sale from his company, Beaux and Paws, are also given to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. “I believe that all animals should have a safe place to live and have a nice home. I feel as though that all animals should have the best life.” “We also want to bring more awareness to animal adoption (Yes.) because a lot of people shop and breed (Yes.) and that produces more animals when there’s already animals within shelters that people can go to, and you can get beautiful, happy, loving dogs from shelters rather than going to a breeder.” Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly presented Sir Darius Brown the Shining World Compassion Award “plus US$10,000 to chip in for this caring endeavor, with love and gratitude.” Our Association members in New Jersey, USA, were honored to present to Sir Darius the Award letter, crystalline plaque, and Master’s check of US$10,000, as well as Her publications and DVDs. “Sir Darius, it is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to you the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for using your artistic brilliance to save precious animal lives. This award is presented in recognition of using your talents to design and make bow ties for dogs, enabling them to much more easily find a forever loving home.”
“It is with great honor to be receiving the Shining World Compassion Award from Supreme Master Ching Hai. This award is so beautiful. I love the hearts and the hearts at the bottom, the way it’s signed. It’s just amazing and I’m very thankful for this award. It [donation] will also be benefiting the lives being saved for the dogs. And it will also benefit the supplies for me making the bow ties. It will also help for the PAW-SOME MISSION, which is me going around 50 states in the United States donating my bow ties to animal shelters, and it will help dogs’ lives being saved faster.”
Our heartfelt congratulations, Sir Darius Brown. May your creative approach for rescuing dogs be evermore successful, in Divine blessings. For the full presentation of the Shining World Compassion Award to Sir Darius Brown, please tune in to our Shining World Award program at a later date.

New solar plant opens in the United Kingdom, a Shining World Wise Leadership Award and a Shining World Leadership Awards for Animal Protection and Kindness laureate.
Bumpers, a 12-megawatt solar farm in Buckinghamshire, South East England, will power about 2,800 homes in the area and help reduce 5,000 metric tons of pollution annually. The site will be maintained for 25 years by leading UK-based renewable energy company Anesco and has been constructed with careful consideration for the surrounding ecology, including vulnerable bat and bird species. In the near future, the facility will also develop battery storage towards supporting the country’s goal to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. High five on this green energy addition, United Kingdom! May we see more such developments that are considerate of nature, in God’s grace.
United Nations, a Shining World Leadership for Lives-Saving-Hero Award laureate, assists Yemen by restoring public washrooms.
The United Nations Development Programme, operating with Japanese funds, has renovated and now maintains 12 public latrine buildings in the city of Al-Mukalla, Yemen. Providing sanitation facilities to 250,000 people who live in the region, the public lavatory will help to ensure adequate cleanliness during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Russian citizens take in children with disabilities during lockdown.
Residents of Moscow in Russia have started inviting orphans with disabilities and psychiatric patients into their homes during the COVID-19 lockdown, to allow them more space and protection than their usual facilities could provide. The government of Russia passed an emergency measure that allows citizens to take residents of state institutions into their homes during this time. As a result, a number of children and others in need have been able to self-isolate properly in a more comfortable environment. Russia is a Shining World Leadership Award for Wildlife-Protection and a Shining World Generosity Leadership Award laureate. Thank you, citizens and government of Russia, for your kind moves. In Celestial love, we pray that the brave people of Russia and all over the world will soon be safe and free again as we awaken to a more compassionate world.

Demand for plant protein increases in Asia as meat safety concern grows.
Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, which originated from a wild animal market in China, vegan food suppliers in Asia have seen an increase in the popularity of their products, as consumers reassess their diets. Notably, online sales of OmniPork, which was launched by Hong Kong social enterprise Green Monday, have more than doubled, while purchases of JUST Egg on China’s major e-commerce sites JD.com and Tmall.com have increased 30%. Furthermore, Hong Kong online food service provider Deliveroo noted that vegan food orders have doubled compared to last year. Green Monday’s CEO and co-founder David Yeung said, “I believe there will be a general awakening. … And from this, it will accelerate the development of the plant-based industry.” Our appreciation, plant-based product suppliers and service providers of the world. For the protection of all beings, including ourselves, may we swiftly embrace the wholesome vegan lifestyle, in Buddha’s mercy.
Loving dog protects pregnant cat in Mexico.
After observing his caregiver Juan José P. Flores regularly feed a homeless cat, in her hour of need, Hades the pit bull invited her to deliver her babies in his dog house. As protection for the pregnant feline, Hades stayed just outside the dog house entrance, on a blanket he had pulled over for himself. The sweet feline gave birth to two beautiful kittens under Hades’ watchful presence. Currently, the new mother, now named Nicol, and her babies are living happily indoors with Mr. Flores and Hades. Hoping that his canine companion’s caring nature changes any negative perceptions about his breed, Mr. Flores said, “Hades put everything aside to help someone else. We should do the same without expecting anything in return.” Our hugs and high respect, selfless Hades. Many thanks for tending to animal friends in need, Juan José P. Flores. May we always recognize the amazing noble qualities of other species, in Heaven’s goodness. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present Hades with the Shining World Compassion Award, plus US$3,000 for your and the cats’ vegan goodies. Heavens will reward you more and you’ll be forever loved. Big hug to you and your protected adorable felines. Big thanks to your benevolent human protector Mr. Flores. May God bless you all!”
Now, please allow us to share this joke of the day with you entitled, “Teenager.”
Two old friends were catching up with each other:
“How is your son doing? He is a teenager now, right?”
“Yes! A teenager. He treats me like a god. He acts like I don’t exist until he wants something.”
And now we have a heartline from Jennier in China:
The respected Supreme Master TV team, hallo! I am a loyal fan of your TV station. Every day I steadfastly watch the programs on Supreme Master TV. Thank you for contributing so many lively and free programs that send positive energy to the audience and let people live in happiness and blessings. Especially the beautiful vegan food you shared in the cooking shows, in particular, lets me feel through the screen your loving efforts. The food is colorful, nutritious, tasty and mouth-watering. Inspired by your loving actions, I also share vegan food with my friends and relatives whenever possible. After eating, they all praised that vegan food is abundant and tasty, and it could protect the lovely animals as well.
Once, when I was traveling to Taiwan (Formosa), I ordered vegan meals on the airplane but found the food a bit boring. At the time, I had four vegan cookbooks in my bag, and I put one in a large envelope with a letter to the catering department of the airline to thank their hard work. When I finished the letter, I gave the envelope to an airline stewardess and asked her to forward it to the catering department. I also gave a bag of vegan cookies and vegan chocolate to all the working staff, by the way. They were very happy and surprised that the vegan food industry has developed so rapidly. One of the stewardesses wanted to be vegan very much. So, I gave a vegan cookbook to this beautiful lady. Everyone was so happy, and the atmosphere was kind and warm. Because of this event, thinking about how many animals could avoid being killed, I felt I did the right thing, and was happy for a long time. I also felt the full blessings from God, and upliftment of my wisdom, as if a cloud in my mind was wiped away and disappeared. I was in ecstasy.
The high-speed rail in China does not provide vegan meals. This time I wrote a letter, included a vegan cookbook and gave it to the kitchen staff along with vegan bread, vegan cookies, vegan chocolate, and vegan “meat” that I brought with me. They accepted the vegan gifts with surprise. I felt very much honored to have done this. Thanks Master and God for giving us human beings the time and the opportunity to make corrections and move forward on the vegan path! Jennier from China
Intelligent Jennier, Thank you for your refreshing message. How thoughtful and attentive of you to act immediately when you see an opportunity to enhance our world’s awareness of the plant-based lifestyle. It seems compassionate cookbooks and vegan goodies are your good companions whenever you undertake your long journeys! May all the creative people of China soon have the opportunity to treat their taste buds to amazing vegan delicacies. Heaven’s protection to you and splendid China, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. Master said: “Caring Jennier, bless you for doing this type of fruitful vegan outreach; it’s so generous and meritorious of you. If you and anyone else have the means to continue with it, please do so as this is a good way to help open people’s hearts and minds to the vegan way. Buddha’s ultimate guidance and kindness to you and forward-thinking China.”
