Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Heartfelt Message to U.S. President Donald Trump

You must fight to the end, Mr. President. As I am talking right now, I don’t know how many children died out there. Because you make peace, so future children will not suffer that fate anymore, you cannot give up. You have to fight for them, Mr. President! Host: On November 24, 2020, while our Most Beloved Master was lovingly checking in on one of the Supreme Master Television team members, She spoke of Her concern about the United States President, His Excellency Donald Trump and shared an urgent, heartfelt message for him.Hi, hallo, can we talk? (Yes.) Are you busy? (No, I am okay.) OK. I just want to ask you whether or not you get back to normal already. Are you better? (I’m getting there, Master.) Getting there. (Yes.) Seventy-percent better? (Yes.) OK. Good. Tomorrow, 80, next day, 90. Next, next day, 100 percent. (Thank You, Master.) Got that? (Yes.) Did the girls bring you food? I asked them to bring it to your place, in case you are too tired to get out.(I was able to go and get some food myself, but, they tried, but I said “It’s OK” and I went to get it myself.) All right then. It’s also better not to give up, on yourself, (Yes.) because the body will listen. They think, “Oh, she says I’m not well, I cannot go there.” Then the cells just do that. (Understand, Master.) Yeah, so you just tell yourself, “I’m tough, I can do it. It’s OK, it’s just temporary.” (Yes. Thank You for Your concern.) I mean I also have problems, but I don’t care. I said to myself, “You got used to it. You know it already. (Yes.) It’s nothing new.” I said to myself, “You got a headache before, you got pain in there before; shut up.” I told myself like that. I’m happy that you are getting there. (Thank You.) If you don’t feel like eating the solid food, just cook some soup. (Yes, yes, Master.) Vegetable soup and broth and fresh fruit, they are recovery foods. (Yes.) Make the body not have to work too hard so that it concentrates on healing. (Yes, Master.) And exercise, fresh air. OK? (Yes, Master.) Or go out and walk, walk around your garden, your vicinity. (Yes.)Anything new that you have read? No? Yes? (No, not really. I haven’t been reading the news too much.) Yeah, yeah, because you are not well. Fine. I’ve just read today. I haven’t read the day before, yesterday, because I had too much work. (Yes.) But I just turned on the phone because I need to do that to send something. (Yes, Master.) And then I saw like your President Trump, he’s ready for transition and I thought, what is in that. (Oh no.) Does he give up on us? I mean he should not. (No.) It’s not the end yet. Right? (Yes.) Even if he will not win, so what? He has nothing to lose now. Does he? (No.) OK. Maybe he could transition, fine, but he should not give up. I know it’s very difficult for him. (Yes.)Because I read on the headlines on my mobile phone, (Yes.) everybody seems to be against him. Almost everybody. Except his supporters, but his supporters don’t have a big voice like those people who are against him. (Yes.) They are the media, they are the Senate, they are the GOP [Grand Old Party]. That’s the…what is that? (The Republicans.) GOP, whoever. (Yes.) I guessed it was Republicans. I thought that. I mean, my God, if they cannot help him, they should not put him down. You know what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.) Meaning trying to discourage him. (Right.) Try to demoralize him. My God, the man is already almost down on the floor. They should not do this. This is not nice. (No.) I don’t think these people are in the same party or maybe same party but not, I don’t know if they have good ideals about the world or about anything. I’m sorry! Well, I’m not sorry. I’m a free citizen. We have free speech. Right? (Yes, Master.) I’m not naming any names, but I don’t agree with these people who are ridiculing your president. He’s still a president. OK? (Yes. Yes, Master.) He’s still the President of the United States of America. He should never give up, yet. (Yes, Master.) Not until the last second, until there’s no more ways. (Yes, yes, Master.)I feel so sorry for him, you know? I read that and I cried. I thought… I hope he has not given up because I am still praying for him. (Yes.) And then maybe he’ll still change, you know? I don’t want to say anything because sometimes you should not say things, OK? (Understand, Master.) Should not disclose things because we are in the enemy world, you know? We are not in Heaven. We are not in our Home. Yeah? (Yes, Master.) So that’s why many things you ask me, I say I cannot tell you. See? (I understand, yes.) Because even like if you have a spy around you, you cannot talk loud, because you are worried that the enemies will hear you. Yeah? (Yes.) But these kinds of things, you cannot even talk not loud. (Yes.) Because there are invisible spies, you see what I am saying? (Yes, understand.) And they will try to find the way to counteract and then will make trouble for you. (Wow.) Delaying your plan, ruin your idea, or ruin your program, or you know? Everything like that, so many things, but I still have very much hope and I pray for him. Do you guys still pray for him? (Yes, Master.) Please tell all your colleagues. (Yes, Master.) I cannot force anybody, I cannot recommend or anything, I just ask if you can. OK? (Yes.) Please do pray for him. (We will.) I hope Mr. Trump won’t give up. I was thinking, is there any way I can contact him and tell him and comfort him, and encourage him? But I am just a nobody. I don’t know any Republicans. (Oh.) Yes, of course, You understand what I am saying? (Yes, Master.) Because I have never been involved in politics or was never interested anyway. (Yes.) But this, I want to tell Mr. Trump if he even heard it, or I hope somebody of his loyal members would maybe tell him what I want to tell him that: “Please, Mr. Trump, don’t give up. Please don’t give up. Because it’s not for you. I know if I were you, I would also give up long ago. I don’t care about this position, President or whatever… it means nothing to me. Perhaps it means also nothing to you, but it’s your people who trusted you and it’s not for you that you should fight for your rightly earned presidency. People love you. Not just Americans, but people in the world love you. And we love you. OK? We don’t know you, we have no relation to you, but we do love you, we know you are a good, good, good man. Because you did many right things which people opposed, like if you get out of NATO, I approve that. What do they do anyway? What for they have to have so much tax payers’ money just for preparing to kill people? It’s useless. And even other organizations one day they say this, one day they say that, contradicting themselves and confusing people. They’re getting paid, but they don’t do their job well. So wherever you get out, of whatever organization, I think you did the right thing! Until they change. OK?So maybe nobody told you that you did the right thing, but I tell you now. I am risking my reputation as a spiritual practitioner, as a trusted teacher of many people in the world. I am risking my safety as well to tell you this. Not because… of you, but because of the things you do that benefit the world. You must fight to the end, Mr. President. It’s not for you, not for your families. You have children, you understand, you know how you love your children, imagine if your children are being bombed, being crippled, being killed right in front of you… how would you feel? But that’s how hundreds of thousands of children die like that. As I am talking right now, I don’t know how many children died out there. Die young, die innocently, die unjustly. Because you make peace, so future children will not suffer that fate anymore, you have to… you have to fight, you cannot give up. You have to fight for them, Mr. President! I never ask anybody to do anything. But I ask you because I have hope that you are the only one who can do this and you have proved it. You have never said that you are going to be president and then you make peace, but you just make peace, like that. And how many hundreds or thousands or millions of people’s lives will be saved? How many countries will be stabilized, and have peace and have prosperity and get on with their lives because of you. Please fight for them. Up to now, not everybody can make peace the way you do, so please continue to fight. It doesn’t matter, you cannot predict whether you win or lose. That also depends on the karma of your country and of the world, so just fight. Just do what is right because you rightly won the election, Heavens told me that and I know that. I know many things that I cannot tell anybody. But time will tell. You cannot just give up, because maybe the other party comes up and then they will go bombing children, bombing women, bombing innocent people again and nobody can stop them. And these countries…, they are not western countries, they are not America. Most of them cannot afford the medical care that the westerners or the Americans can afford. They are poor countries, they’re already poor and if they are wounded, injured, handicapped, crippled by bombs, by guns, by whatever in the war, they will just die or suffer, suffer, suffer. Please think about that. Whatever you did was right. I know you don’t accept climate change, because you did not study that. You have been very busy with your business, with your other things. I don’t blame you, but I know, I have trust that if you know more, you would immediately do something. You are doing also something, but it’s not the main point of it. Like, I’m advocating for veganism, because veganism brings peace and prosperity and stabilization for the climate.I’m not trying to preach to you about this, but I trust in you. At least you make peace and you save humans’ lives, you save Americans’ lives, these young, beautiful, handsome, intelligent boys and girls cannot just be wasted in a foreign land or any land. So you have saved their lives, you brought happiness to their family, you brought smiles to their wives, their children, and for that, I thank you very much and the world thanks you also for having some peaceful future. And that means a lot to Heaven and Earth, means a lot to the whole world. So it’s not for you that you should fight, you have to think of others like that.And I know you… are not for vegan or anything, it’s fine, you just do what you can. OK? I don’t blame you, because many people know about veganism, that’s good for the world. And many people know for sure what can save the climate and they boast about it. They say they’ll do this, do that for the climate and are hinting that they’re going to make veganism and all that, it is all empty words. Means nothing to me, means nothing to anybody. So at least you are straightforward and you’re honest. You don’t believe, you say you don’t, and whatever you believe, even you don’t boast about it, you don’t promise anything, you just do it. And pronto, fast, as fast as you can. So, I really am grateful to your leadership, please try to continue to reclaim your rightful place… as a winner. Are we okay, girl? (Yes.) OK, because I heard some noise, maybe you are crying. I thought maybe… I am telling you… I’m sorry, I’m so emotional but your president, he should not give up. (Yes, Master. Thank You.) I have never supported any leader in this way, you know that. (Yes, I know, Master.) You know that for sure (Yes.) and I don’t think I will ever do that again. So, really from my heart, it’s not from the teleprompter or anything like that or any ready-made script, or from a ghostwriter or whatever. (Yes, Master.)It’s all from my heart. And I just hope somehow that my sincere, heartfelt words will reach your president. (I hope so too, Master.) And just... maybe, just give him a little bit more encouragement. So that he will not just give up. They are attacking his pride. (Yes, Master.) They’re provoking him, so that he gives up. But that’s just the trap and the trick. He should not do that. He’s a smart man, he shouldn’t do that. He should not listen to anybody except his own heart (Yes.) and except God. Listen to the angels around you; listen to God above you, because you are a righteous man. (Yes.) And that’s why I’m telling you this, Mr. President. I’m not embarrassed to show my emotions and support to you, because I know it’s right. I’m not supporting you, Mr. Trump, I support your ideals, your work, your life-saving actions, because very rarely the world can see a leader like you. So, please... I want to tell you, it’s an order. You must fight. You’re a man, don’t give up. That’s all I want to tell you. Even if they pressure you, they embarrass you, they humiliated you, they degraded you, they try all kinds of all things just to pressure you into giving up quick, don’t do it. Because all the great men, great women, who are destined to do something great for the world, truly great, they are never 100% supported by the world – almost the opposite. That’s the price these great people have to pay. That’s the way it is. So you continue to do what you can. Work with your lawyers, your trusted friends, your supporters. You also need to consider your supporters who are heartbroken over your unjust outcome of the election. Some risk their jobs, their safety to defend you. So, for all these people, and for the world, you must continue. You cannot give up. I also had many difficulties in my mission, all the way up to now, but I did not give up. So if you are a man, you should be better. You are a man, you cannot give up, not until the last seconds, if there is no more hope, no more way to get out of the fight. You must continue, Mr. President. I wish I could deliver this to you in person, but I’m a nobody, in the political arena. I don’t have any power. I just want to tell you my honest, sincere request. I wish you all the best, all the luck that you deserve. I wish you all the protection from Heaven and men. Amen. (Amen.) ”Okay, girl, I think I’m out of breath, now. (Oh, Master.) Yeah. OK. (Thank You, Master.) Do you have anything to tell me? If not then I’ll go to continue my work. (OK, Master. Thank You.) This is just a sudden outburst, but I really wanted to talk about it. (Yes, Master, Understand.) Now I get it off my chest. I hope somehow my words will get to your president. (Yes, Master.) Because my sincerity counts. (Yes, I know.) My heartfelt goodwill counts. (Yes.) I do hope that some of the Republicans that know him, can pass on this message to him. I don’t know if anybody cares really about what I say, but I just hope maybe somehow they find a way to him. (Yes.) Just to remind him that he has to continue his way, and what for, you know what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.) It’s not for himself, so he should not be embarrassed or feeling depressed or feeling discouraged from anybody. (Right.) He should just listen to his heart. Listen to the angels, listen to God. (Yes, Master.) And continue his mission. (Yes.)All right. You have anything to tell me? (No, Master. Thank You.) No, ah? I think you also cannot say anything anymore, right? What do you think? What would you want to tell him as an American citizen? I know maybe we are nothing, but you can tell what you want, get it off your chest. Who knows… (I don’t want him to give up) Yeah. (because I want the world to be at peace.) Yes. (And he’s one of the rare leaders who has courage to be peaceful and not to always go to war over everything.) Yes. (And he has the courage to be different and to be peaceful, and the world needs that right now and we can’t continue the way we’re going.) Yes, yes. (So I really appreciate Master’s words to him. I hope he listens.) Yes, OK. Yes. And we continue to pray for him. (Yes.) Whether or not anybody cares. We just do it. (Yes, Master.) Cause I think he’s our only hope. (Yes.) Even for World Vegan or climate change.Because many people just use that for political reasons, (Yes.) to gain votes or to gain trust or to raise money, (Yes.) whatever it is, their motive, but they don’t do much. Up to now, the climate is getting worse, and people suffer from famine and drought, and weather craziness, everything already. And they all know it. (Yes.) And they say they’ll do this, do that. They do nothing. Nothing essential. (Yes.) And so, even if the President, he… they told me he denied climate change. I didn’t know much about that because I haven’t read news or anything since years. (Yes, understand.) Just maybe now and then, something special so I just have a glance at the headlines. But only now that I am really into it, because of the pandemic that is like no other disease before. (Yes, Master.)And I am concerned for our human fellows, so I continue to follow up with the news. Just anything I can say, I have said it. And I help with anything I can help, at least to our people, to your brother and sister initiates. (Yes.) I feel responsible as a teacher. I have to protect you guys, so I must know many things. (Yes. Thank You, Master.) Even if I know, but I have to have scientific evidence. (Yes, Understand.) Therefore, I have to follow up with all that. And then, by the way I know about Mr. Trump and all this… unfair, unjustified actions of everybody against him. That’s not fair, and not nice. (No.) I hope his supporters continue to support him, at least mentally, emotionally, stand by your man. (Yes.) And don’t let him be too lonely, and alone, and surrounded by all these brutal so-called friends, and colleagues, and party members, and media and all this… oh my God! (Yes.) Like… pounding on one person.I think I have said enough. Do you want to say any more to him? Maybe he’ll never hear you, but you just say it. Who knows? Then you get it off your chest. Just like what I’m doing now. I don’t know if he’ll even ever know about it. (Yes. I just don’t want him to give up and I just… Mr. President, just know that we love you and… just please be strong.) He’s the only hope for the world right now. (Yes.) Other leaders, they just do their business as usual, just to get paid, just to get voted, just whatever… Just to please everybody else around, whether or not right or wrong. (Yes.) He’s the only one who just speaks his mind and does what he thinks is right. (Yes.) Even though he promised nothing. (Yes.) That’s the way it should be for a leader, it should be just straightforward. (Yes.) Just honest. (Yes. Genuine.) Genuine, yeah, that’s it. Genuine, that’s the word. He’s a genuine guy. (Yes.) And that’s why I like him. Heavens love him too. They all support him. All Heavens want him to win. And countless people in the world want him to be President again. (Yes.) I wish even he could be President forever. (Wow.) Yeah, but there are no such amendments, right, in America? (No.) Each president can be only two terms max, right? (Yes.) But in Russia, their president can be president for a long time. (Yes.) I think maybe you should change your constitution. Ah, yeah, they should change. (Yes.) Amend it. So that a good president, like President Trump, could stay forever. Or as long as necessary. (Yes.) Or until people don’t want him anymore. (Yes.) If he did something wrong. But this president is going to do better and better. (Wow, yes.) And if I can have any power, I would change the law and let him rule, let him help the world in his powerful position. (Yes.) Because in this world, if you don’t have this kind of worldly power, then you cannot do much. So, it’s good. In Russia, President Putin can be president almost forever. (Wow.) They changed the constitution. And why not, if he doesn’t do anything wrong, if he brought safety and peace to his country. (Yes.) At least peace (Yes.) and prosperity. (Yes, Master.) He doesn’t oppress people and people are free to do what they want, go anywhere they like, and live their life. (Yes.) At least peace. Peace is the best medicine for any country. (Yes.)I want to say something again. OK? (Yes, Master.) All right. This is more official and serious. President Trump, I was too emotional before, I want to add something in all calmness. Seriously, you have to continue fighting your legal fight, until you cannot fight anymore. You cannot give up. You have to think of all the victims of the war all the time up to now. We don’t talk about long history of war, we talk about the almost two decades of war in Afghanistan, for example. How many people died, how many children suffered, how many widows. Think about them. You know, overnight they became widows, and then overnight, maybe, they are forced to be a slave to some village rich or being abused by them, so that she can have some survival pieces for the children’s sake. Think about the children… suddenly became orphans, homeless. Lost arms, lost legs, groveling on the street for some moldy bread, enduring bullying, harassment, or molesting, anywhere during the war, because of the war, or seduced into brothels, or join revolutionary groups, labeled “terrorists.” Then get bombed again, second time, third time… until any remnant of faith in God shattered, his life shattered also! And never have anymore future, except in the bloody battle field, in the endless blood-shedding wars. Or they have to come and work as child labor in some underpaid job somewhere. But then, they cannot even be in peace to work to earn their meager survival. Because some hypocrites will come along with big suits and big cameras and big crew, exposing the boss for forced child labor, etc., etc. Then the kid even has no more of this meager existence anymore. Then you can imagine what becomes of them. They can either join the so called “terrorists,” or go in to the brothel or crawling on the streets somewhere. Or being molested with no one even caring a hair because they have nowhere to go. They cannot be anything more than just a castaway kind of garbage in the society, in our world. Please, Mr. President, this cannot go on forever. The war will breed more war; breed more so-called “terrorists.” And more so-called “terrorists” will breed more war. It is an endless cycle. You can end it. You did some part of ending the war. The solution is in the Bible that you pray with every day “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Only the benevolent energy of PEACE and VEGAN will repel evil force. Then all will be well. Why pardon only a turkey? Just pardon everyone! Just like your Defense Secretary Mr. Miller said, “All wars must end.” There’s no good war ever. We are not born on this planet just to kill – and kill and kill. Be it humans or animals. All these wars must stop. And we count on you. Many people count on you. Countless of people are thanking you for making peace in their country, so that they can breathe a sigh of relief and look toward their brighter future. OK, I’m not talking too long anymore. You must fight, Mr. President, your legal rightly battle. Don’t give up – for all the war victims’ sake – past, present and future. God bless you, Mr. President. God bless America. May America be Great Again. Thank you. All right, my love. I think I better get back to my work now. (OK, Master.) Originally it’s just to ask you if you are OK and then we’re both crying like babies. Maybe we have become babies.Every day, if I stop thinking, then I can concentrate on my work… I might stop for a while thinking. But when I’m free a little bit, I think of the suffering people in the world, due to war, (Yes.) famine because of war. And the animals who suffer so much in the brutal hands of humans. Oh, I cry all the time. (Yes.) That’s why my eyes are not as good as before. (Wow.) I wanted to ask somebody to buy me better eyeglasses. Never mind, it’s not so urgent, I still have these magnifying glasses. (Yes.) So, I wear the glasses on my eyes, but I use also the magnifying glass. (Oh, wow.) Oh yeah, so I can read the words on the computer. Before I could, now I cannot. (Oh.) I think I cry too much for my own good. I just hope my tears will wash away some of the karma of humans and animals and let us have quickly peace and vegan. (Yes. Yes, Master.)I talked to your brothers and sisters. I said we make one more day for World Vegan prayers. (Yes, I saw.) Maybe the outside people, they won’t do it. But at least we do it. (Yes, Master.) And it will be better. Quicker. Because before, I could not ask too much like that. It has to be a little bit more gradual. (Yes.) Because if outside people, they meditate and pray with us, the power will be too much for them. (Yes.) But now maybe they can be used to it already. (Yes.) So we can increase more blessing power into that gathering and prayer. (OK. Thank You, Master.)You please, continue to take care of yourself. (Yes, Master. Thank You.) It’s not all your fault. It’s karma of the world and it’s the influence of the negative lingering still in humans. (Yes, Master.) All right. We bear it all, we pay everything. We pay anything as long as others have peace and safety. (Yes, understand.) We try our best. Thank you. God bless you. (Thank You, Master.) God bless you. (Take care. Yes.) Yes, and God rewards you quietly. I’ll talk to you next time. OK? (OK, Master. Thank You.) Alright. But if you really cannot… don’t feel like up to it, just let the girls help you. (Yes, Master.) Because they just bring some food. It makes no big deal. You live next to each other. OK? (Yes, Master.) Maybe one day, you will have to do that for them. (Yes.) You know, everyone has some days of unfavorable luck or physical unwellness. Don’t hesitate, don’t feel embarrassed. (OK, Master. Thank You.) All right. You take good care, really, girl. (Yes.) I love you. (Thank You. I love You too, Master.) Yeah. Ciao. (Ciao.)Host: Our deepest gratitude, Most Compassionate Supreme Master Ching Hai, for Your merciful Love for all beings and sharing this important message for President Donald Trump and the future of our world. We pray President Trump will hear and heed Master’s words and continue on in strength and Heaven’s protection with his noble presidency of peace for the well-being of all global citizens, in Divine Love.

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

00:17:23

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.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 18 - Lessons Learned from Animals

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 18 - Lessons Learned from Animals

As most humans have lost the ability to telepathically communicate with each other and other beings, we do not know how animals think and feel. Fortunately, there are spiritual practitioners and animal communicators who can perceive the thoughts and feelings of animals. Today, we’ll present some of these people’s personal experiences encountering animals. “(It scared me also, that I can talk to the animals.) Why? It's good! (Yeah, because I didn't expect that they can respond me in the psychic. Sometimes when I pass by on the street and the dogs come by and I can hear his feeling or what he wants. Like sometimes I talk to them, but they are very scared. They keep distance from people, you know, they have broken heart, and they can hardly believe anymore that people can mean goodness to them.)” “(Recently, I went to a conference hall in Greece, and previously, it was a slaughterhouse.) Ah! Yes! (And I started feeling uncomfortable, and had pictures of panic and fright, and I didn't know why. I felt the pain and the panic. So, I started reciting the (Holy) Names, and I really cried for them, and I saw Your presence there. And their souls, I felt that their souls were liberated. They were previously entrapped in pain, in a level of pain. And through the reciting of the (Holy) Names and the prayer, they were liberated. ) Yeah, wonderful! (And I was grateful, and they were grateful immediately.) Oh, I am grateful to you, that you were there. (Thank You!) They were liberated... You bring love and blessing to them. (Yes, thanks to You, thanks to You. I brought You there, and it was such peace all over the place, and I immediately felt better, so I knew, I knew.)” “(I’d like to share something about the animals. I used to go and visit the cows. There was a field nearby with the cows. And sometimes I just needed to get something out, something off my chest and I’d cry from the bottom of my heart. And whenever I felt that way, the cows, I’d go and visit them, and they’d come right up to the fence every single time. And they also, they said a few things. They said they were very grateful for Supreme Master Television, for the work that You’re doing, for the work that all the disciples are doing. And sometimes I’d see one or two of the cows crying. And they said that it wasn’t because they knew of their fate, that they were going to die. They were crying for mankind.) They really feel sorry for humans, they don’t hate humans for hurting them even, the animals. When we’re hurting them, they are praying for us. They’re forgiving and they feel sorry for us so much. Because they feel that humans are so ignorant, they really didn’t know what they’re doing. So they feel very sorry. Yeah, so it’s good that you have such experience, very profound.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 17 - Exploiting the Helpless

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 17 - Exploiting the Helpless

Meat is not the only exploitative product that humans derive out of the helpless animals. There are numerous other products from animals that people consume and wear, such as honey, swallow nest, bear bile, leather, and all kinds of fur. Sadly, humans have been exploiting almost all species of animals. Supreme Master Ching Hai has condemned these cruel practices in many of Her lectures. "(We know from documentaries that the fur industry causes some of the most extreme suffering to animals, and that animals can be killed specifically for leather products. We also see that collecting feathers from birds like geese and wool from sheep involves cruelty. What is the merit lost from making or selling these clothing related products of fur, feathers, wool and/or leather? Thank You, Master.) Why do we talk about merit lost when we don’t even have any merit anyway? I mean, we can only talk about sins accumulated. But 'merit loss' is a very kind way to put it. We lose immense amount of merits, if we have any. And if we don’t have, we’re going to pay for it dearly, dearly, dearly, dearly. Yes. Anything that causes suffering to animals – for fur, for meat, for wool, for leather, anything like that – will incur very, very bad, bad, bad karmic consequences, and we will have to pay dearly with our own suffering." "I don’t see any beauty in clubbing a seal or smashing the head of a fox in order to put it on your back. My God, we have so many things that we don’t need... Yes, many things we can wear without being so wicked to other less defensive beings. This is terrible. This is really below our dignity to even think about it." For many millennia, out of ignorance, humans have exploited countless innocent beings and caused immeasurable suffering, reaping disastrous karmic consequences for our planet that are now becoming more and more evident. It’s not too late to heed the warnings of our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai and stop these inhuman practices once and for all. We need to U-turn now to save our Earth, to save our souls, and to ensure a beautiful, kind future for our children.

People’s Hearts Will Veer the Course of our Planet

People’s Hearts Will Veer the Course of our Planet

On November 6, 2020, during a work-related phone call with a Supreme Master Television team member, Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, who continues to meditate intensively for the world, conveyed Her constant deep concern about the state of the planet and the climate crisis. She also graciously answered some questions including those about current events in the United States.(Master, the United States pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement and many Americans are worried about it. Should they be?)(Master, the livestock industry is the one who emits the most methane gas (Yes.) and is responsible for heating up the climate the most, (Yes.) so why doesn’t the Paris Agreement mention that or address that?)(Master, President Trump, he spoke at a news conference about fraud in this presidential election. (Yeah.) And only a couple of major news media have played it. Why?)(Master, is there any truth to this fraud in the presidential election?)Whatever he can in his power and just limited four years. And with all the opposition around him. All the attacks, relentlessly, non-stop. (Yes, Master.) He still did many good things. I really applaud him and I thank him for the world’s sake and for the Americans’ sake. Even if he loses the election, I still thank him. I still think he is a worthwhile president of all time. I wish we have more presidents like that. And I’m sure if he knows much more about the climate change or about the meat industry, he would stop them. Just the way he would stop every other thing, almost immediately. (Yes, Master.) So I will be very sorry if he loses the election.But whatever it is, it’s all the Americans’ karma. And then God’s will, I mean the Lord of Karma will regulate, accordingly. So we can only pray. And we will not blame anyone, win or lose.The most important aspect, the most important issue is that we have to keep our planet and the world people and beings on this planet, all of them. We must keep them all safe by keeping the temperature as normal as before the climate change. Or at least stop it from getting worse now. I don’t see any governments are doing anything substantial to stop the climate change. To stop all these disasters because of climate change. To stop all the suffering, the pandemic, even, because of the livestock industry, livestock imprisonment, livestock torture, livestock massacring. They should stop that and everything else will be better and OK soon.We still just continue, just continue hoping, hoping things will change. (Yes.) It changed a little bit, but from the people, not from the lawmakers. (Yes.) Because they wrote it themselves. They did not even enforce it. And they themselves break the law every day by making suffering for the animals and allowing all this massacre and abuse and torture of the innocent, helpless, harmless animals who are the friends, the best friends of humans and the true friends of humans and all. (Yes.) Yes. So it’s not from the governments that things will change, only the people’s hearts will change to veer the course of our periled planet. (Yes, yes.) People, they watch the films, they watch our TV, they see the logic of it and the compassionate indication of it so they might change their hearts and that’s how people will change the life on this planet and rescue our world.

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 16 - Distorting the Teachings of Saints

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 16 - Distorting the Teachings of Saints

After thousands of years of translations from one language to another, perhaps there have been some misinterpretations of the ancient texts. In many enlightening lectures, Supreme Master Ching Hai has helped to elucidate the common misunderstandings regarding the diet of these great Saints and Prophets. “In Italy, they have that kind of pig’s delight mushroom, remember? Truffle, it's hidden underground and the pigs always dig it and eat it. When they sniff it, they dig it with their feet and then the people go after it and dig the mushroom out and sell it. They're very expensive. So the Buddha ate that, of course, He was offered that as a delicacy. They call it ‘pig’s delight’ or ‘pig’s feet’ because of that story, because of the pigs who are able to sniff that and dig it out for people. So the Buddha, poor Buddha did not taste any pork but ate a big ‘pig’s feet.’ Oh, dear God.” “Mostly all these documents are found in the Dead Sea Scrolls which they have unearthed not long ago, some years ago. And they have found all these great teachings. And Jesus belonged to this Order. ‘In their profound respect for all living things, they never touch flesh food...’ They don't eat meat, see that? I hope all the Essenes in this lifetime also read this and don't eat meat. ‘Nor did they drink fermented liquid.’ Means no alcohol. See that? Yes.” “In the Surangama Sutra, Shakyamuni Buddha said, ‘If we spiritual practitioners eat sentient beings’ flesh, the highest level we can attain is maya’s level.’ It’s not that eating meat makes us become maya. It’s because of our level inside and our insensitivity that we are only worthy of being maya.” “Why are the Indian people more enlightened than other people? I wondered myself. Yes, and then I had the answer. God told me, ‘Because they practice what they preach. They practice ahimsa. They practice vegetarianism. They practice prayers. They practice meditation. They practice constant awareness of all beings are one. What is done to one is done to all others.’ And I said, Thank You very much! When we have sincere questions, God always answers. And this is what the Hinduism and the philosophy of this motherland is boiled down to.”

A Global Food Reform is the Answer to COVID-19, Part 2 of 2

00:15:37

A Global Food Reform is the Answer to COVID-19, Part 2 of 2

In this episode, we will discuss ways you can boost your body's immune system against major diseases like COVID-19. The first person we might look to is Hippocrates, the Father of Western Medicine, who said 2,500 years ago: “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” But what kind of food is best for us? One of the largest and most comprehensive studies ever conducted in this area is a joint effort between Cornell University of the USA, Oxford University of England, The Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine, and The Chinese Cancer Institute, tracking 6,500 rural Chinese over a 20-year period. The study finds conclusively that there are no nutrients in animal-based foods that are not better provided by plants. Not only that, it also finds that animal food of any kind, even in small amounts, is damaging to health. This highly regarded long-term is chronicled in the iconic book “The China Study,” released in 2004 by one of the lead scientists of the project, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. Today, at the age of 86, Dr. Campbell remains active in the promotion of the whole food plant-based diet as a vital solution to chronic diseases, environmental degradation, and climate change. In an interview conducted by his eldest son Nelson Campbell in April 2020 about COVID-19, Dr. Campbell sheds light on the role of plant-based food in managing viral infections. “The greater the consumption of animal-based foods, the greater there was of the antigen – that’s the active form of the virus.” Further, in an article published on PlantPureCommunities.org in April 2020, entitled, “Our Most Important Defense Against COVID-19: Finding Hope Through Scientific Evidence,” Dr. Campbell wrote: “In my opinion, good evidence exists to show that the beneficial effects of a whole food, plant-based (WFPB) diet also applies to viral diseases like COVID-19.” An analysis of plant foods reveals why they are far superior to animal foods. Apart from providing the necessary fuel and nutrition for our body, a balanced vegan diet contains sufficient levels of many immunity powerhouses, including vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, flavonoids, selenium, and zinc. These super-antioxidants enhance the production and activities of two important immune system defenders – white blood cells and antibodies, and protect them from oxidative damage. As we have seen, a wholesome vegan diet is beneficial to the immune system in many ways.

A Global Food Reform is the Answer to COVID-19, Part 1 of 2

In a YouTube video posted on March 14, 2020, marine biologist Dr. Robert Carter, a senior scientist and speaker for Creation Ministries International-USA (CMI-USA) in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, discussed how SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19, emerged: “You’ve probably learned that you have more bacteria in and on your body than you have cells in your body. That’s a lot of bacteria, but do you know what? You have even more viruses than you have bacteria. ‘What? What are the viruses doing?’ They’re controlling the number of bacteria in your gut, and they’re controlling the species of bacteria. So, what they’re doing is, regulating. In general, they don’t cause disease. However, when they jump to another species, that other species doesn’t have the ability to regulate this virus properly. Right now, there’s a new virus in the world, it’s a coronavirus.” The current consensus among the scientific community is that COVID-19 originated in bats. Bats are a major natural reservoir of coronaviruses. Bats do not become ill themselves from the coronaviruses they carry, but can pass them onto other animals. Since humans rarely interact with bats, it is unlikely that bats directly gave the COVID-19 virus to humans. However, humans routinely interact with other wildlife and livestock animals. Over the years, the ever-increasing human demand for meat and dairy has given rise to more numerous, larger-scale animal livestock operations, increasing the frequency of animal-human contact. Moreover, many of these sites are encroaching on bat territories, amplifying the risk of virus transfer from bats to humans. Moreover, as the “crown of creation,” we humans cannot, in good conscience, turn a blind eye to the fact that wet markets and animal livestock operations are a living nightmare for the animals and the human workers involved, flying in the face of the principle of love central to all major faiths. No matter how you look at it, a shift to a vegan lifestyle is a win-win proposition for all. One thing COVID-19 has opened our eyes to is that, collectively, we are willing to make drastic changes to our lifestyles when human lives are on the line. We wear masks, practice social distancing, stay locked down, and avoid mass gatherings. With potential runaway global warming looming large, no less than life on Earth is now at stake. This beckons the question: “Is it time for humanity to make one more simple but giant step – embrace the healthy, environmentally-friendly, and compassionate vegan lifestyle?” The answer is clearly “YES!” And by taking this action, we can solve a myriad of devastating global issues in one stroke, including pandemics, chronic diseases, enormous economic troubles, water shortages, world hunger, species extinction, and climate change.

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 15 - Abusing the Sacred Cows

00:15:51

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 15 - Abusing the Sacred Cows

In many ancient cultures and religions, such as those of Egypt, Greece, India, China, and Âu Lạc (Vietnam), cows were revered as sacred beings. Even today, in Nepal and parts of India, it’s illegal to kill these gentle beings. In many of Her lectures, Supreme Master Ching Hai revealed the special qualities of cows and why they deserve to be treated with love and respect. “The cows have 38% PQ (Positive Quality), 0% EQ (Negative Quality), 40% SQ (Saintly Quality), 50% GQ (Goodness Quality). Cows are from almost the Fifth Level, border of Fourth and Fifth. Cows, all the cows are from there. And they eat them. You don't know whom you're dealing with all the time. You look down upon animals. You're not even there. Look at the cows. They eat just grass, and they give you milk, cheese, absolutely everything. And they still kill and eat them. The cows are like a mother of almost all the babies on the whole planet.” Many people grow up believing that milk is good for human health due to misunderstandings, misinformation and profit-driven advertisements. In reality, milk is not compatible with the human body and can cause many physical problems. “Milk products have also been linked to many forms of cancers as well as diseases that can be fatal such as Crohn's disease and listeriosis. And even though people often believe that milk contains a lot of calcium, the digestion of milk often requires more calcium than it contains. So, the calcium is actually removed from the body in order to digest the milk. In fact, countries that consume the most milk are the same ones that have the most osteoporosis and the weakest bones.” “Dairy is included together with meat because the cruelty and torture are the same, and the end result is a horrible death for the poor animals. After just a couple of years of nonstop pregnancy and milking, dairy cows are killed for meat as well. Their babies are sold also, and killed for veal. So, there is no mercy in the dairy industry either.” Words cannot describe the pain and anguish humans inflict on innocent animals, especially the gentle cows. As stewards of our fragile world, we must work together to ensure that all co-inhabitants, especially our more vulnerable animal friends, may live freely in peace and happiness as God intended.

2020 World UNITY Week - "Coming Together as One People," Part 2 of 2

Water is essential to the survival of all beings on this planet. It nurtures lives, cleanses, and connects everything. On June 24, World UNITY Water Day, the proposal for “World Water Law” and “World Water Year 2021” were launched. His Excellency Mussie Hailu, Member of UN Representative, and Goodwill Ambassador of Culture of Peace Initiative, sent an online message of endorsement for the proposal. The Interfaith Rainforest Initiative, first launched on June 19, 2017, is an international, multi-faith alliance that brings together faith leaders from around the world in a concerted effort to end tropical deforestation. Religious leaders from Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu and Taoist faiths joined the indigenous peoples from Brazil, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Meso-America and Peru to make protection of rainforests an ethical priority. Dame Dr. Jane Goodall, the British environmentalist, animal rights activist, primatologist and Shining World Compassion Award Recipient, was a guest speaker for the event. She talked on the magic of the rainforest and its crucial role in mitigating climate change. She pointed out the connection between the current Covid-19 pandemic and detrimental human behavior. “This pandemic, it’s keeping us apart. I should have been with you today, but I am locked down, in Bournemouth, in England. Others of you will still be locked down. We will be social distancing, or something. We brought this pandemic on ourselves. And it’s because we disrespected the forest, disrespected the natural world, disrespected the animals.” On June 27th, celebration of the 75th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter was the climax of World Unity Week. Established on June 26, 1945, the Charter of the United Nations is a foundational treaty to uphold the basic human rights of every world citizen and a broad outline of principles to achieve higher standards of living for all. Signed by 50 countries, the Preamble of the treaty begins with, “We the peoples of the United Nations determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 14 - Destroying Our Oceans

00:16:07

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 14 - Destroying Our Oceans

“If we say that the ocean ecosystems are dependent on fish populations to be balanced, then those ecosystems are extremely imbalanced right now.” “If fish are continually taken from the ocean, it will become as empty as the desert. In 2006, an international team of scientists and economists found that around a third of the ocean’s fish populations has already been wiped out due to fishing, pollution, and other human causes. They warned that if the steep decline of fish populations was not stopped, the oceans would be empty of fish by 2048. It’s not far. It’s not far future for us. Our own survival is at risk if we continue consuming fish, because the oceans produce half of the world’s oxygen, and fish are an important part of the marine ecosystem which produces oxygen for us.” Supreme Master Ching Hai shared one of Her own interesting encounters with fish and explained why fish love to be close to spiritual practitioners. “It happened when we were in Pingtung as well. The fishes all swam to the surface and danced. Yes! They were shining. In Pingtung, when we first arrived, we went down to wash our faces and hands. The fishes immediately came up to the surface. Wow! There were so many that the whole lake was lit up! It happened every time! Fishes love to be around us. They understand, their Buddha Nature inside understands. Their Buddha Nature and ours are the same.” “(Does one incur bad karma [retribution] when you go fishing?) Of course, you will get a lot, a lot of bad karma (retribution). Or what do you think? That the fish gets the bad karma (retribution) or what? Of course, if you go fishing, then you create heavy karma (retribution) because you are terminating a living being when his time has not yet come, when he hasn't gone naturally by God's will. Anytime we terminate an existence by our own self-will, we create a burden for our soul, and it's very difficult for us to erase that later on.” “If we truly wish to see real harmony born between humans and animals and nature and Heaven, we must be the harmony, we must live in harmony, and act also in harmony, which includes the act of eating harmoniously each time we come to the table. Peace, compassion, mercy begins on our plate. We cannot truly call ourselves harmonious if every meal is the result of filling our hands with the blood of the innocent and harming the environment and killing our planet on which we live. How can we call a dinner of fish harmonious, when slow and painful deaths by mass suffocation had to take place to bring the fish there onto our plate? All the scriptures told us that we receive what we grant, or we reap what we sow.”

COVID-19 and Meat Processing Plants: Deadly for Humans and Animals

00:16:14

COVID-19 and Meat Processing Plants: Deadly for Humans and Animals

Welcome, concerned viewers, to today’s important, informative and urgent program, “COVID-19 and Meat Processing Plants: Deadly for Humans and Animals.” What exactly is a meat processing plant? They are fenced-off, massive multi-story, windowless buildings, in which as many as 10 million animals a year are killed, dismembered, cut into saleable pieces of meat or ground into hamburger mince, meat-meal, or meat-pastes, and then packaged for distribution. They were formerly called “slaughterhouses” or “abattoirs,” but have since been re-named “meat processing plants”- perhaps in an effort to make them less repulsive to the public’s ears and eyes. But we should have no doubt at all – these factories are horrific and torturous to both the animals and the humans who work there. During this current coronavirus pandemic, the slaughterhouse horror story is being magnified, as numerous meat processing plants have become hotspots for human transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Why is the virus so prevalent at meat processing plants? Many experts have cited, the stressful, dangerous working conditions in which employees stand shoulder-to-shoulder for long hours on the meat assembly line; in highly air-conditioned rooms laden with bacteria; and floors swirling in fecal matter and blood. This creates a highly volatile environment where disease can quickly spread. Added to this is the psychological and emotional stress of the constant killing, and the sounds and smells of death, all of which powerfully depress and inhibit the immune systems of the workers, which is exactly what the virus needs for infection and transmission. Whether the meat itself was a medium of transfer, or the workers spread it through their meat-products, equipment and bacterial-rich working conditions, remains to be discovered. One thing is for certain – these situations must stop, and stop quickly! Many organizations are calling for the permanent closure of meat processing plants, and an urgent and complete shift to a plant-based lifestyle. Supreme Master Ching Hai has reminded us that all pandemics and environmental disasters are the consequences from killing billions of innocent and helpless animal co-inhabitants, and recommends a global adoption of the vegan lifestyle.

2020 World UNITY Week - "Coming Together as One People," Part 1 of 2

In the midst of an unprecedented global pandemic, the first World UNITY Week took place from June 20 to 27, 2020, in an effort to bring together people of all faiths from different countries and racial backgrounds. Assembling 126 global partners, the online event called for a unified effort to help start a new page for Earth, to build a brighter, more beautiful future for our home planet and all co-inhabitants. More than 200 keynote speakers addressed the pressing topics of our time, including “collective climate action,” “partnerships for peace,” “global governance,” “interfaith harmony,” “interracial justice,” “sustainable and regenerative development,” “the role of business and economics,” and “human rights.” The opening ceremony on June 20th, the mid-year solstice, began with indigenous prayers led by the Honorable Native American Chief Phil Lane Jr. Joining the opening prayer ceremony were indigenous chiefs, peace activists, NGOs, and leaders from Buddhist, Christian and other religions. Several spiritual musicians also presented their most heart-touching performances. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai was also invited by Chief Phil to speak at the opening ceremony. “This unprecedented time gives us opportunity to reflect inwardly, since outwardly we have been limited. But our soul is forever free as long as we know how to turn inward and find our real self, our soul, which is a part of the Divine, then we will feel free no matter what circumstances, no matter if we are hindered by physical situation. This is a time for us to be quietly contemplating our true nature within. To ask ourselves, why misfortune happened and open our hearts to listen to Divine guidance. The Divine guidance told me that, ‘As we sow, so shall we reap.’ So let’s start now, from now to sow all benevolent deeds that we can, so that we will get benevolent outcomes in return for our future. The past we cannot change, but we could change our future, depends on our present actions, our future will be doomed or bright. And you know well, according to that wisdom, we cannot expect full happiness, full joy if we cause sorrow to others including our Earth co-tenants, the sweet animals and all other beings around us. They are the blessing sent from Heaven to help us in our sojourn on this planet. We should appreciate them, protect them and be grateful for their presence. I guess, many guests would have more wise words and compassionate messages to share. So my simple message is: Be Vegan, Make Peace. Thank you all for doing your part to save our world. All my love and God bless.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 13 - Atrocious Cruelty to Poultry

00:18:03

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 13 - Atrocious Cruelty to Poultry

People fortunate to have chickens as companions find these loving creatures to be very affectionate, sociable, and intelligent. It is a sad and great loss for those who view these precious birds simply as food. More than 50 billion chickens confined in extremely crowded factories are slaughtered each year. Genetically modified and force-fed all kinds of hormones, medicine, and other chemicals to promote rapid growth, factory farm chickens have a life span of only 6-7 weeks rather than their normal 7-15 years. This leads to antibiotic immunity, dangerous hormones, poisonous chemicals, and epidemic diseases that are transferred to humans when they consume the chicken meat. “We love animals, cannot eat them. For example, will you go and grab a chicken and cut its throat and eat it, if you do it? (No.) No, you can’t. Just because people do it already and make it look so nice, a little piece, you don’t even realize that it’s life, it’s real life. He was walking on the farm yesterday with his little children and then they took him and cut his throat and then put on the table and eat it. (Yes.) Can you imagine? (Too sad.) We don’t do that – too sad, too sad. Because people don’t realize it, they’re too busy. (Yes, they are too busy.) Not like they don’t have a good heart: all the people have a good heart. They just don’t know that it becomes a habit, and one generation after another generation.” The egg industry is no less cruel. The hens are raised in filthy tiny cages, exposed to unnatural light all day to force-produce the maximum amount of eggs. The male chicks are deemed useless and are killed in the most heartless way. “Eggs have also been shown to be extremely unhealthy, so there is absolutely no need to eat them anyway. One US study with 14,000 adults found that just adding one egg a day to the diet increased the risk of heart failure by 23%. Vegan products, by contrast, are completely cholesterol-free and healthy for all our internal organs, for our mind as well. A healthy body houses a clear mind. It’s better for our body, for our conscience, for our mind, and for the planet to stay away from both fish and eggs. No animal products at all; that is the best way. We should be vegan.” “Spiritually speaking – some eggs may contain life in it. You don’t know which one with and which one without. It’s all mixed in the supermarket, you never know. That’s one thing. So, two: eggs attract negative power, negative energies. So the more you eat that, the more you’ll be irritated, sometimes you’ll get even possessed and you don’t know why. You don’t get possessed for nothing; must be something in your life that’s out of balance so that your guard has been destroyed, that the guardian angel is even helpless to help you, and your bodyguard, your natural guard, has been broken somehow so that disease or unfavorable entities, bad energy can enter your body and destroy your strong will power, controlling your own destiny.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 12 - Toxic Substance and Energy

00:15:15

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 12 - Toxic Substance and Energy

For sure, animals are sentient beings capable of feeling all the emotions we feel, happiness, sorrow, anger, and much more. When they are being slaughtered, they tremble in fear, frantically struggle, scream in anguish, and cry endless tears, imbuing these powerful negative emotions into their dying flesh. Supreme Master Ching Hai shed some light on this subject. “Whenever we eat meat, it is unavoidable that some of the hatred, anger, frustration in the animal's heart when he departs will be imposed upon, imprinted upon our subconscious. And then we feel uneasy inside. Therefore, when we sleep in the night, we have nightmares; when we see the animals, they are frightened of us and run away; and when we are sick, it is difficult to cure, because of all this hatred, anger atmosphere, which hangs around the meat that we eat.” With deep sympathy for the pain and distress of farm animals, Supreme Master Ching Hai wrote a poem entitled “Words of a Piglet” in Her late 20s. The heart-wrenching poem vividly conveys the thoughts and feelings of a little piglet. “Words of a Piglet The day I met you first Was the day of my birth. Pink and round, me oh so plump I gaily frolicked with Mom. Lovingly you looked at me Praising, ‘Oh, so round, what a cutie!’ Every day you came by to visit Bringing cool water and delicious veggie treats... Mommy and I were so touched Your kindness, more than gold worth I lived a peaceful life Under your care and protection Growing more plump with each passing day Just eat, rest and play... So lovely was this early morn As clouds were drifting across the sky Cuddling together, Mommy and I Unaware of the befalling tragedy! Two brawny young men Strong like tigers and elephants Squashed my tiny body into a cage of horror. Flat! There was no way to escape! O God, what purgatory was this? I wailed in fear and terror Mom, oh mom, please save me Oh caretaker, please, fast, come protect me! Rescue my life, I’m still at a tender age! Mom was crying out in sorrow Tears of desperation filling her eyes The immense Heavens cannot contain This horrendous heart-wrenching pain! My caretaker turned away Hands busy counting a stack of money Haplessly I rolled around in the car trunk Breaking heart more painful than bodily misery! The two young men bantered: ‘This piglet will be so tasty! Tomorrow we’ll slaughter him To celebrate the birth of the wife’s newborn baby!’ Oh, how ironic this life My soul is shattered Tears flow in my heart Like blood running in rivulets. I thought you loved me Nurturing me to maturity But all this was a sham It’s all just about profit and gain! Tomorrow my body will be chopped to pieces My flesh and bones turned to sheer torture Just so people can laugh in merriment At their happy feast and gathering. To your children and others’ too I wish them all long lives So the family can stay together Not endure the same fate as mine... I pray the whole family lives nobly To be human in many lifetimes And never be reborn as pigs Paying forever karmic debts! Alas, goodbye life... I ache for my gentle suffering mother. In tears I am overcome... Oh, mommy! Mom... mom!”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 11 - Hindrance in Spiritual Practice

Over the years, Supreme Master Ching Hai has shared Her insights about the harmful effects of meat on many different occasions. “All animals want to live; they fear death. If we force them to die by killing them, we incur tremendous bad karma, which can’t be cleansed easily even by the (Inner Heavenly) Sound Meditation. And we just practice occasionally; not to mention those who never practice. Therefore, eating meat isn’t safe and will hinder you from liberation.” The following is a testament from an Association member who struggled to keep the First Guideline at the beginning of his practice. “I wasn’t a vegan before. It was not easy for me to keep the vegan diet. I counted the days every day. ‘Today is the 10th day. Not bad, I’ve been a vegan for 10 days, 11, 12…’ I kept counting each day. When it was over 20 days, I couldn’t bear it anymore. I said to myself, ‘I am going to eat meat and quit spiritual practice. After tonight, I will quit for sure.’ So, that night, I didn’t meditate. I just took a shower, watched TV, and went to bed. While lying in bed, I had an inner vision. What was it? I was standing outside on a plain in the countryside on a plain in the countryside with a mountain in the front. I stood there alone. Suddenly a voice came from the sky. It sounded like the voice Master used to recite the Five Holy Names. Now I remembered. The very low voice said, ‘If you dare to eat meat, when you die, you will suffer more pain than now.’ Then, a flash of lightning struck me. My whole body jolted. Just one strike and I couldn’t bear it. The lightning was very strong. Normally, when we get an electric shock, our hand will feel numb for a while, but when the lightning struck me, my whole body was in pain! I jumped up and then fell down. I jumped up and then fell down. Another flash of lightning came, stronger, and I jumped even higher. ‘Ouch!’ I screamed. Then I woke up. (It’s to let you know that in hell, it’s more painful than that.) Yes! After waking up, I checked myself and said, ‘That was incredible! Looking at myself, I seemed to be fine. Since that day, I have not dared, nor mentioned eating meat. When I saw a piece of meat, I dared not even think about it, not at all!” “I can assure you, when you have reached a higher level, you wouldn’t dare to eat meat. Even without me telling you, you can see for yourself how the people who have just eaten a piece of meat have been punished. They are not punished by me; it is the law of causality. That is why some people have to come back as tigers, horses, cows, pigs or chickens to be slaughtered innumerable times before they can clear the karmic debt of their palate pleasure.” In Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Urgent Message to All Religious and Spiritual Leaders, She called on the reverent leaders of different faiths to remind people to change to the righteous and compassionate way of living. “As great spiritual leaders, You would also be aware of the devastation occurring on our planet, directly related to accelerated climate change caused by humans’ cruel behaviors and brutal habits, which is not so difficult to change once applying the principle of love. Please tell Your believers this truth. Please keep telling them, please keep reminding them. I know You did, but we could do more. Thank You.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 10 - Retribution in the Afterlife

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 10 - Retribution in the Afterlife

The karmic consequences of meat-eating include painful suffering in the afterlife. In today’s show, we will share with you frightening accounts of the punishment in hell that awaits those who eat meat or are involved in meat businesses. The first story is a personal experience by one of our Association members. “On the day Master came back to Hsihu from France, I went to see Master. In the evening, the inner Master told me, ‘Your friend has fallen into hell. Hurry up and go.’ So, I went. Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva was there to greet me, and four or five beings were there listening to His lecture. ‘Only four or five beings? Oh, God.’ Yes, very few. The hall was so big but only a few beings were there listening to His lecture. ‘They wouldn’t listen over there (hell).’ That’s right. Then Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva said, ‘Let me guide you.’ Then He took me to a place where meat-eating beings would fall into. It’s a big square, and many beings were lining up at the sides. In the middle, it seemed to me that it was bigger than a football field. And there were beings from the five continents: with skin tones of white, black, and yellow, etc. And later a kind of meat grinding device suddenly fell from the sky. That is, a meat grinder suddenly appeared out of thin air, and then a loud humming sound began. And later there were horrendous cries. And everyone stood in a circle; the diameter was one and a half meters. Then they were all ground up with flesh and blood everywhere. Later, after it was done, they had to line up again, being punished like this 3-5 times a day. Then I quickly recited the Five Holy Names and the Gift from the Seventh Level, and that hell was emptied of all beings. They’re liberated.” “We should keep the precepts strictly. The first precept is no-killing. This precept mustn’t be violated. Breaking that precept will cause you a lot of trouble. Apart from a shorter life, bodily discomfort, lots of illness, such as those untreatable diseases, are all from the bad karma of killing. Killing karma is very, very serious.” We now share with you another story told by Supreme Master Ching Hai about the afterlife retribution for those who served meat in their restaurants.

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 9 - Retribution in the Afterlife

Out of Her loving concern for those involved in meat businesses and those who eat meat, Supreme Master Ching Hai explained the terrifying situation awaiting them in many of Her lectures and conferences. “Eating meat is terrible! It leads one to hell and one’s flesh is cut piece by piece. It’s payback for the meat. One of our initiates is very sensitive because she practices spiritually. She buys meat for her husband to eat, because he forces her to. She practices well, but even so, when she is forced to buy meat, she is beaten up by demons every time she is in the market. every time she is in the market. She knows because she sees them. You can’t see them and wonder why you have a headache when you get home, why you keep falling down at that place, or feel drained of energy as though you’re crawling on the ground. You are beaten by demons, but you don’t know it and you can’t see them.” What are the repercussions for souls that work in butcher shops or slaughterhouses? “What’s the consequence? Oh my God. I don’t even want to think about it. Either they have to suffer a lot like the way the animals suffer in this lifetime, or they have to go to hell even, or they have to even degrade their birth into some lower level of existence in order to repay this debt, in untold suffering. I would advise everybody, please just stay away from these kinds of jobs, because it’s not worthy at all.” “The meat business is a bad business. It’s very bad for you. And the other four are: business in weapons, business in human trafficking, business in intoxicants, and business in poison. All these harmful businesses are bad for you, now and in the future. If you believe in the life hereafter, if you believe in Heaven and hell, you should stop the meat business immediately, like yesterday. Because nothing good awaits you in the life after if you cause suffering to others, be it human or animals. You will have multiple suffering in return, and for a long, long time. So instead, these people in the meat industry should join in the trend, which has already begun and expands hugely every day, I am happy to say. Thank you. Be veg, go green, plant organic vegetables!” Many enlightened Masters have advised people to refrain from meat due to its devastating effects. In fact, “Thou shall not kill” is the first and foremost commandment of many religions. This commandment is not a restriction, but rather a necessary protection for souls in the afterlife. Let us cherish and follow the precious Teachings of the great Masters and choose the vegan diet for a better life now and forever after.

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 8 - The Grave Loss in Spirituality

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 8 - The Grave Loss in Spirituality

The damage caused by meat-eating goes beyond the physical aspect such as sicknesses and ill health; it can also adversely affect us spiritually. How do our diets and professions affect our spiritual merit? Supreme Master Ching Hai explained the connection in a 2010 conference with the Supreme Master Television Team. “It’s about us, that we have to be good. And some merits are spiritually helpful, because if we don’t have enough merits, our spiritual merit will be deducted and our spiritual level will be automatically lower. If we don’t earn merit, then we will keep losing merit, and then we’ll become bad inside also, not just losing it – our quality will change.” “Is there a ranking of meritorious diets?” “Of course, of course. Meat diet is no merit at all – it’s eating up our merit as well. For example, if you have like 100,000 points of spiritual merit and you are eating meat in this lifetime, and that will be deducted according to how much meat you eat, and then maybe you even have a deficit in spiritual merit. Selling meat, fish, eggs, you will lose 100 million to half a billion per year. If somebody owns a meat or fish restaurant, lose 500,000 to one billion points spiritual per year; if owns an alcohol bar, like a pub or something with alcohol, lose 100,000 to 400,000 per year;own a slaughterhouse, lose half a billion to six billion points per year; own a meat animal farm, lose one billion to three billion per year; own or working on a fishing boat, lose half a billion to three billion per year. And work as fisherman, a worker for that, for money, lose 300 million to one billion per year. My God, these people, they will never be able to go to Heaven. They keep having to reincarnate again and again because they keep losing so much spiritual merit that even if they have a lot in the store, they will lose them all.” “It's the law of the universe, that if we kill or if we harm something, we have to share our spiritual merit with that. So how many animals we eat, we share all our spiritual bank account with those animals, and then we’re depleted, we get poorer and poorer spiritually. And if you don't have spiritual merit, enough, then you have to pay with your health, your luck, or your family member’s peace. And then larger, we pay with peace in the world – we have to pay the price, for having no peace.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 7 - The Circle of Violence

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 7 - The Circle of Violence

“Looking back at the long history of humankind, there have been temporary peaceful periods in different times and places. However, despite the constant efforts and sincere prayers of many people, we have yet to find lasting peace on Earth. Why is that? Supreme Master Ching Hai has answered this question in many of Her illuminating lectures. If we take meat, we have to pay in meat. Therefore, our bodies suffer, or we die, or we get sickness, cancer, and all that kind of thing. That is because of the law of ‘an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth’; ‘meat for the belly and the belly for the meat, and God shall kill both meat and them.’ Because we eat meat, we have to pay by meat. Therefore, there are wars: because sometimes we kill so many animals, and we can’t just pay one life after another. So the caused war comes, and then many people are killed together. Therefore, the collective karma is erased quicker. So don’t blame war, or don’t blame anyone except ourselves.” “The animal diet is a diet of violence. It begins already from the way we raise them, the way we treat them, the way we force-feed them with antibiotics, and all kinds of tortures upon them and it ends with the way we violently kill them, massacre them en masse in order to satisfy our split seconds’ enjoyment. So we should stop being a part of this violent circle. This is a war with complete imprisonment, torture, executions with knives and guns and explosives even, extremely high financial and health cost for people as well, and destruction of all kinds, such as psychological damage and environmental devastation, and soon, maybe the destruction of the whole planet. If we continue to generate non-peaceful energy, be it through war between humans or war on animals, we will not beget peace because like begets like.” “We all want to have a peaceful world and we all talk about how we want peace and love. Well, I think we should start it now and let peace begin on our plates. Let love begin with our choice. When a person partakes in direct or indirect killing of any sentient being, be it human or animal, he or she enters the cycle of revenge and violence. And it will only end when one stops doing it.”
