People’s Hearts Will Veer the Course of our Planet, November 6, 2020

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’s Heartfelt Message to U.S. President Donald Trump, Nov. 24, 2020

Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Heartfelt Message to U.S. President Donald Trump, Nov. 24, 2020

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.

His Excellency Donald Trump: Determined to Bring the United States and World Forward

Operation Warp Speed, His Excellency’s personal push to make a coronavirus vaccine available as fast as possible to the public, has been roundly applauded and been called an 'unprecedented success.' The project began in May 2020, and the vaccine is now being mass distributed – truly an incredible feat.It is rare to witness in a lifetime a country’s leader with the tremendous courage to step outside political norms, even if it means being opposed, and still work from his heart to do what is right, including fostering peace in their land and the world. United States President, His Excellency Donald Trump, is one such person. This program highlights the many significant domestic and international achievements of President Trump, a Shining World Peace Leader Award laureate and Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion laureate. He has been lauded for his numerous decisive actions to boost the United States in multiple spheres, including strong measures to improve the US economy, protect American citizens’ health, and drive constructive social change in communities.(The pace over the past 10 days has been astronomical. Everybody in official Washington (DC) I talked to said, 'I cannot believe he’s only been president for 10 days.')(This is how it’s supposed to be done. Actually, even more so than we’ve seen in the past.)(We are seeing the markets react positively.)(Consumer confidence rocketing to a 16-year high.)(Healthy job growth again for the month of February.)(So is this the Trump effect?) (Well, I think it is. I think there is no question that employers like Donald Trump a lot and his agenda and I think the fact that he’s just more pro-business.)(The Dow still nearing all-time highs. Just finishing the longest quarterly winning-streak in 10 years.)(He’s repairing relationships with Egypt as well as with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states.)(He’s done a really good job.) (Well, he’s pretty close to perfect, Sean. I’m serious.)(He has done more than any president in recent history, certainly in the last half century, in the first 98 days of his presidency.)Abroad, His Excellency has a lengthy list of outstanding accomplishments. President Trump has been strengthening relations between the United States and other countries as well as playing a key role as a peace-maker and negotiator to bring nations together who previously were in conflict or had few to no ties. He also brought American troops home from several countries. His work on the global stage has been so admired that, to date, he is a seven-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee.We first profile some of the substantial domestic advancements that have been attained by his administration.BOOSTING THE AMERICAN ECONOMYThe US economy has seen exceptional growth since President Trump assumed office. The keen business sense that made him a very successful entrepreneur has informed his fiscal policies. Resultingly, his nation has become more competitive in various markets, and the financial security of US citizens has improved. Numerous national economic records have been set. Overall, the median American household income reached an all-time high in 2019.The Dow Jones Industrial Average, a stock market index with some of the US’s top publicly traded companies, hit a new peak on December 4, 2020. The index is one indicator of America’s economic health and investor sentiment. Notably, the high was reached despite the ongoing pandemic.(It was a great finish to the year.)(Three hundred and twelve thousand jobs added.)(Real wages are rising for the first time in a decade and that’s good.)(Wages are stellar.)(A fantastic number.)(Those are great numbers and we should be applauding it.)(Unreal. Unreal number.)(The first word that popped into my head was eye-popping. I mean…)(This is a blockbuster number.)President Trump has been credited with an enormous expansion in job opportunities after assuming office. Since his election in 2016, seven million jobs have been created. Unemployment fell to a 50-year low in late 2019. Those groups that have historically fared less well economically in the US have enjoyed important gains. The White House noted that, 'The lowest unemployment rates on record were matched or set in September 2019 for African Americans, Hispanics, and people with disabilities.' In 2019, Hispanics and African Americans had the lowest poverty rate in the country’s history since recordkeeping of the statistic began. He also re-started funding of a program supporting career and technical education, with US$1 billion given to the US states to implement it. Additionally, President Trump signed an executive order that directs federal agencies to work with the private sector to create apprenticeship and job training programs leading to well-paying careers.SAFEGUARDING CITIZEN HEALTH"Operation Warp Speed is unequaled and unrivaled anywhere in the world."Operation Warp Speed, His Excellency’s personal push to make a coronavirus vaccine available as fast as possible to the public, has been roundly applauded and been called an 'unprecedented success.' The project began in May 2020, and the vaccine is now being mass distributed – truly an incredible feat.In remarks made on December 8, 2020, President Trump stated, "We’re here to discuss a monumental national achievement. From the instant the coronavirus invaded our shores, we raced into action to develop a safe and effective vaccine at breakneck speed. It would normally take five years, six years, seven years, or even more. In order to achieve this goal, we harnessed the full power of government, the genius of American scientists, and the might of American industry to save millions and millions of lives all over the world."President Trump has also prioritized ending the US opioid epidemic that caused 48,000 American deaths in 2017 alone by declaring it a public health emergency. Furthermore, he signed legislation in 2018 directing US$6 billion in new funding into programs to address the tragedy of opioid addiction. The law helps bolster drug treatment options, has measures to clamp down on the overprescription of opioids and enhances law enforcement tools to address the issue. He also directed the US Justice Department to sue opioid manufacturers for illegal and unethical practices, including aggressively marketing and distributing their products, thus causing a public health crisis. In November 2020, one major drug company pled guilty and agreed to pay a US$8 billion settlement.BETTERING SOCIAL WELFARE His Excellency Donald Trump has been vigilant about protecting Americans’ safety and welfare. He has taken several significant steps to address the scourge of human trafficking. He signed a bill in January 2019 providing US$430 million for anti-human trafficking measures in the US and abroad. The next January, he issued an executive order outlining new federal government steps to end the vile trade and exploitation of children on the Internet. His administration made US$100 million in grants available in September 2020 to law enforcement agencies and nonprofit service organizations that work in the area. This includes funding of housing assistance for victims and money for prevention and intervention initiatives.Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken about President Trump’s tremendous efforts in the area."Others might have talked about it, or some have done little about it, but he is the first one who really acts strongly, fast and seriously, and with heart put into it, to protect people and children from human traffickers."Here are just a few of President Trump’s other major actions to help improve the daily lives of Americans.+ Approved a bill guaranteeing mothers a space for breastfeeding in US airports+ Doubled the child tax credit for parents and expanded income eligibility for it+ Signed a law giving an extra US$2.4 billion to an overall US$8.1 billion program for US states to help disadvantaged families access child care+ Proposed and Approved the US$2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act that included a stimulus payment to citizens, expanded unemployment benefits, and financially assisted businesses, states and local governments+ As of December 2020, he is pursuing more federal coronavirus relief aid to the American people and businesses, including seeking a US$2,000 a person stimulus payment Etc.+Signed the First Steps Act, a prison reform measure that includes retroactive federal prison sentence reductions to address sentencing inequities and improve conditions inside facilities+Directed federal agencies to roll out the 'Ready to Work Initiative' that helps former prisoners gain employment and more here…INTERNATIONAL ACHIEVEMENTSBesides his devotion to the United States, President Trump is committed to peace around the world, as Supreme Master Ching Hai has revealed."He prays for peace. (Yes.) That’s what I know inside. (Wow!) Heaven told me that he prays for peace. (Wow!) (That’s amazing!) You cannot cheat God. (Yes.) You cannot blind Heaven. So They know. (Yes, Master.) Anyway, peace is the most precious thing that any president can give to his country and the world. (Yes.) (Could Master please tell us what is that covenant between God and President Trump?) That he has to make peace. Yes. That’s his job, his mission. (Oh.) You can see it very well. More nations are coming to peace also with Israel. That means peace with America and the world. (Yes, Master.) Because it’s mediated by the American government, by President Trump."Since assuming office in 2016, President Trump has supported and mediated historic peace agreements in numerous countries. The most recent accord was between Morocco and Israel. This is the fourth Israeli-Arab peace deal in the past four months mediated by His Excellency, which include those between Israel and Bahrain, Sudan, and the United Arab Emirates. All of these countries are Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureates. Illustrating the respect President Trump has earned among world leaders for his unprecedented peace efforts, Prime Minister of Israel, His Excellency Benjamin Netanyahu said during the announcing of the peace accord with Sudan: "We are expanding the circle of peace so rapidly with your leadership, Mr. President, your able team. History in the making… This truly changes the region. It changes the lives of all our peoples for the better. It allows us to focus on the task of building nations, building our future… And with your help, the help of the United States, the possibilities are infinite."President Trump has also mediated a peace agreement between Kosovo and Serbia, both Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureates, and was a key facilitator in leading to the signing of the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula by His Excellency Moon Jae-in, President of the Republic of Korea and a Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureate and Dear Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, Supreme Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and a Shining World Leadership Award for Peace recipient. In fact, President Trump was the first US President to step into the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.President Trump has not only been part of directly establishing peace internationally, he is the first US President in over 40 years not to have started any wars. He has also taken action to end conflicts by withdrawing US troops from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia and Syria. In Afghanistan and Iraq, by mid-January 2021, 5,700 troops will have been withdrawn. Moreover, signifying his intention for a peaceful world, President Trump appointed as the Acting United States Secretary of Defense, the Honorable Christopher Miller, who said in a letter to all Department of Defense employees, 'All wars must end.'Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken of President Trump’s courageous work."Mostly America is the police of the world, and they flex muscle. And he is the one who did the opposite. Growing out of America, growing out of this kind of environment, whose race always believes in making war or to flex their muscles. And he didn’t do that. He did the opposite. So, he doesn’t fear. He just did what he thinks is correct."In a special message to President Trump on November 24, 2020, Supreme Master Ching Hai emphasized the importance of his peace-promoting efforts."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. 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 all 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."As we have seen through our program today, President Donald Trump puts his full attention and effort to uplifting his nation and furthering peace and stability throughout our world. He makes it a top priority to drive constructive change to benefit the lives of his co-citizens and people globally. We give a high salute, praises and respect to his brave, innovative, 'can-do' spirit and meaningful endeavors that have inspired his fellow Americans and many worldwide."He’s good for your country and good for the world. So many things he did right. (Yes.) So many things he did good for the Americans, not to talk about for the world. Think about it, look back, see what he has done. And you will know what I’m talking about. If you really want your country better, improved, please let President Trump continue his mission. Because Heaven wants that way."We pray the world’s future continues to brighten in peace and happiness with His Excellency Donald Trump as President of the United States.

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

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 6 - The Cause of Humanity's Degradation

16:31

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 6 - The Cause of Humanity's Degradation

It has been widely known that meat is harmful to our health and the environment. However, not many people are aware that meat can also subtly and negatively influence humans’ mental state and behavior. In fact, researchers have found that animal abuse and human abuses are closely linked. Meat consumption is the real culprit behind many regretful offenses, fights, and even crimes.“If you eat meat, maybe you also become less of the human quality, and more of some of the animals’ instincts, and then it’s difficult for you to even control your sexual appetite. And then maybe you could even commit adultery or sexual misconduct, due to the animals’ influence of meat. It’s not just the meat. It’s not just the animals’ instincts, it is the hormones, the antibiotics and all kinds of harmful substances that went into the meat, before they’re killed. And after they’re killed even, all the preservatives and all the deadly bacteria that inhabit that piece of meat. And all kinds of things that drive your hormones even more crazy. And it’s easier for you to be un-loyal to your partner. Or to commit even some sexual offense. And the last one is intoxicants. Meat makes you addicted, it is another kind of drug, another kind of addiction, and they also put all kinds of things in there, that make you addicted as well.”“Meat-eating not only is detrimental to our health, it is the cause, for us, that we cannot get in touch with our true Self also. That’s why most people, sometimes they’re good, sometimes they are bad; they don’t know why.” “(How far does eating meat take us away from God?) Wow! Too far, too far. Much too far. We are eating ourselves up bit by bit until we become smaller and smaller in spiritual evolution. And then we might regress very far, go back lower into the evolutionary scale. And after leaving the body, we will realize all these mistakes: by eating other beings as if we are eating ourselves. So we will return to the physical again and again and again to redo our past misunderstandings. But we will be overwhelmed again by new situations and the pressure of this world again and then we fail again etc., etc., and each time we fail, the obstacles will be even bigger than the last. Meat is a no-no for anybody at all, even not a practitioner. You know very well it doesn’t bring physical wellness even, not to talk about spiritual progress. Not to talk about being closer to God.”

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

14:21

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 1 - The Tragic Toll on Health

15:41

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 1 - The Tragic Toll on Health

As a so-called food, meat is simply one of the most unhealthy, poisonous, unhygienic items that could ever be ingested by humans. We should never eat meat at all if we love and cherish our health and our life. We will live longer without meat, healthier, wiser without meat. Warning: You might find the content herein disturbing, but the truth must be revealed. In our modern era, we are increasingly plagued by pandemics, chronic diseases, rising temperatures, intensified natural disasters, and environmental degradation − a planet in crisis. If we look closely, all these devastating issues can be traced back to the human habit of meat-eating. The time has come to turn away from what was long accepted as the norm and fully examine meat’s impacts on our health and the environment, as well as our moral and spiritual development. Over the years, Supreme Master Ching Hai has shared Her insights about the harmful effects of meat on many different occasions. In this series, we present a collection of Master’s enlightening teachings on this very topic and pray that humanity will soon awaken and embrace the vegan diet, so that we and future generations may live on, and in a more harmonious world. Today, we will focus on the topic of meat’s tragic toll on human health, not only as a direct cause of some of the deadliest diseases, but also the very source of global-scale epidemics like the one we are currently facing now. “(Master, all these zoonotic diseases are being transmitted from animals to humans because of our actions.) Yeah. (All the SARS, MERS, swine flu, bird flu… and the COVID-19, this coronavirus.) Yeah! This is supposed to be transmitted by some people who ate the wild animals. (Yes, Master.) And then it was transmitted to other animals and then transmitted to men, and then now even some animals are transmitted to, are also infected. I don’t know how we escape.”“The truth is COVID-19 stemmed from the animals, wild animals, from that wet market. (Yes, Master.) And they’re carried by humans all over. All over China, all over the world, because there are always tourists. (Yes, Master.) Or exchanges of humans’ resources or humans’ manpower, or humans studying, or humans cooperating. (Yes, Master.) There are always humans running around the world nowadays. So, the carriers bring the strain all over the world, and it stemmed from there. (Yes. So, those rumors, because I saw on the Internet some media outlets were saying that maybe it came from a lab.) No. It didn’t come from any lab. It came from the wild animals from the wet market. And exactly from Wuhan. I checked inside with Heaven and with the gods of epidemic.”Sadly, COVID-19 is only one of the many series of epidemic diseases in modern times. Since the 1980s, Supreme Master Ching Hai has repeatedly warned us about meat-eating and its consequences to our health: “You see, aren’t the hospitals full of meat-eaters? (Yes.) We vegan monks and nuns rarely visit the hospital. The south raises a lot of chickens, pigs and fish. (Yes.) Now it is plagued with dengue fever. The north doesn’t have it. It’s only in the south. We didn’t have this plague until now, neither did Taiwan (Formosa) raise so many chickens and pigs and have this kind of untreatable disease. Now we have a lot of untreatable diseases in Formosa. (Yes.) Formosa used to be very clean. It was called the fairy island. Now because we eat so much meat and raise so many chickens and pigs, we have more serious diseases. This disease spreads very fast, I heard. So it’s obvious to see that the karma is working fast, you don’t need to ask me questions. The best is to turn the whole country into vegan. Then no one would get these kinds of untreatable diseases. Even if there is, it would be easy to treat.”“When we kill, we will get killed unnaturally. When we take off the life unnaturally, our life will be taken off unnaturally also. See how many diseases in the world, not to talk about disaster. How much the hospitals are filled with patients, nowadays that people can afford more meat, more animal products, see how sick people have become, how filled the hospitals are. That’s the cause of what we have to reap when we kill animals to eat or indirectly kill because we eat, so somebody else has to kill. Therefore, I tackle this issue more than anything else because that’s the only thing that we can do faster. Faster than scientific development, faster than technology development, faster than governments reactions, just easy, simple, and just do it, for our sake, for the children’s sake.Merciful viewers, we will take a moment for an important message. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television!Welcome back to our program presenting excerpts from Supreme Master Ching Hai’s discourses on the detrimental effects of meat in relation to human health. “Now, if everybody doesn’t stop this meat-eating habit, our planetary fate is going to go into the toilet as well. Right now, it’s already frightening, but I don’t know in the future, even scientists would say this, that it could be more frightening when they mutate into a more deadly virus. Even with all the vaccines, we are helpless against it. I told you, we are helpless against bad karmic retribution. We pay for what we do. Even the vaccine now, people are scared of the vaccines; even the ones who developed the vaccines don’t dare to take the vaccine because of the terrifying side effects - they could be paralyzed forever. They could be dead from the vaccine. That’s why they refused it. This is a terrifying thing, it’s not like we can control it even. And meat industry is responsible for all of this! So we have to stop the root cause of all this trouble, not by vaccine, but by virtue, by heavenly quality, which is inherent inside of us anyhow. We just take it out and use it.”“Even to eat flesh is also the cause of all kinds of diseases and war in this world. All the diseases are the warning to us that we should go back to our virtues. As long as we forget this, we will stumble across different diseases in different periods of time. If we succeed in curing this disease, God will create another. I don't mean God; it is the lord of karma, it's the god of karma. It's the law of nature, of cause and retribution. Ninety percent cause of the (swine) flu is indirectly related to the swine factory in that province; they have calculated, they have researched. For example like, if in your country, in your area there are a lot of swine factories, then in that province have a lot more, 90% related to the flu pandemic, and from then spread out, of course, but slower than the native house, where the animals are breeding. OK, maybe you can cook the pork and say that ‘OK, the cooked meat is not contagious,’ but it’s not so. The viruses fly all over in the air: affects people. The workers who are in the farm are directly affected. And from then, it mixes with human and other flu from birds or other animals, and becomes more deadly. And then slowly or quickly spread out.”“The health risks of eating meat are more and more evident these days. Livestock are routinely given excessive hormones and antibiotics, which then, when consumed as meat can in turn endanger human health. There are also toxic byproducts in slaughter places such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide. These poisonous substances have caused deaths among workers due to their extreme toxicity. As a so-called food, meat is simply one of the most unhealthy, poisonous, unhygienic items that could ever be ingested by humans. We should never eat meat at all if we love and cherish our health and our life. We will live longer without meat, healthier, wiser without meat. Meat has been scientifically shown to cause all kinds of cancers, also heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and obesity. The list goes on and on and on. All these diseases kill millions of people every year. Millions of people die due to meat related diseases, and making millions others seriously sick and disabled as well. There is no end to tragedies caused by the meat diet. Meat eating is a no-no. We should know this by now through all the scientific and medical evidence. Please stop eating meat. Just even for your health’s sake. You want to live long for your children and your grandchildren, and live healthily.”

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

15:20

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.

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 5 - Cruelty to Our Animal Friends

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 5 - Cruelty to Our Animal Friends

In grocery stores and on restaurant tables, meat products are often well presented and nicely packaged, making people easily forget how they are produced. In our show today, we will take a closer look at the real picture of animal factories, as revealed in many of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s lectures. “We respect all lives in the creative plan of God. We can see ourselves, that all life resists suffering, resists death. Therefore, when we kill or see the animals killed, they are suffering and they try to run away. That means God empowers them with the instinct to want to live. So if we interfere and force their life away, we interfere with God's will. We should treat every being as we like to be treated. Then our life will be blessed with grace, with longevity, with wisdom.” “Nowadays they put them all in a factory, and force all kinds of medicine, sometimes poison, or antibiotics, etc., etc., or whatever they can do to force the cows to produce more milk than they should do. Sometimes they produce too much milk that they could not stand anymore. Their bones are rotten and brittle and broken. This is beyond cruelty. Just for the greed.” “When we think about how the animals suffer in such a situation, cramped factory, get kicked and electrically prodded, so that they stand up again so that they can be qualified for slaughter... And some veal (calves) just stand, weak, deprived of light and everything just so that their meat is tender and white, all their life like that, and they get slaughtered all the time. How do we have the heart to continue to support this kind of cruelty?” “Even if we do not directly partake in this killing, we are still responsible if we eat the meat or dairy products or even fish for that matter. Even eggs are being bred very cruelly. Milk, eggs, they’re all very cruelly bred. We cannot imagine what cruelty we humans inflict upon the innocent harmless animals. Even just a little chick like this, so puffy, so cute, so sweet. We have all this information on Supreme Master Television, if you care to look at how humans treat innocent, harmless and helpless animals. Even fish, since they are produced with the similar cruel practices as meat, we should not consume fish. If we engage on any level in the unspeakably inhumane practices of the animal industry, we also carry the burden of the animals’ murder – I’m sorry to say – indirectly. We carry the murders, the effect.”

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

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.

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

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.

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 2 - The Tragic Toll on Health

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 2 - The Tragic Toll on Health

“Avian flu, tuberculosis, listeria, Crohn’s disease, mad cow disease, camphylobacter, Staphylococcus aureus, etc., etc. And now, we have its more dangerous form, called MRSA, namely methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, it’s a “superbug” - meaning there is no antibiotic to cure it, no antibiotic for this superbug. We have it now in our world and its likely source is because we fed the animals too many antibiotics. So, these diseases arose because we over breed animals and create the conditions for the diseases to form and spread. Other diseases came from hunting - another cruelty committed on the poor animals.”“HIV, the killer of 25 million people since 1981, is from humans’ consumption of primates. And just recently, as you know from the news, people in China are dying from the pneumonic plague, which originated from hunting marmots for food. It’s very contagious and can kill a victim within 24 hours! So, all these diseases could be prevented if only humans turn away from such unhealthy, cruel, violent habits – the habits of raising, hunting, and eating animal flesh.”“Apart from treating the animal cruelly, we also endanger ourselves, by eating the bacteria-laden meat and unhygienically treated meat. All these things are no good for humans. No wonder more and more hospitals are built all the time.”“Sometimes the meat is really causing trouble and not many people realize this, and they blame the government for health care failure, and they blame the doctors for not giving enough attention to medical care and all that. But actually, they are the ones who make all these sicknesses themselves. The root of the problem is the meat diet, and not many people are willing to admit that, because they love meat. [It] causes a lot of trouble for themselves, costs a lot of spending for the nation and a lot of suffering for the world and their generation, their children and all that. The problem is so simple, but not everybody likes to believe, likes to follow, and it’s a very sad affair.”“Meat is not our friend. Animal products are not our benefactor; they are our enemy. By meat, I mean fish, eggs, milk, etc, etc. Please do research. Even milk is harmful. It’s responsible for many fatal diseases. Meat and milk, dairy products and eggs are cancer causing, fatal disease causing. Millions of people die every year because of meat, eggs, and dairy products. Trillions and trillions of US dollars are spent in this direction to try to cure those diseases that have been caused by meat, dairy, and eggs. So please, for the sake of your health and that of your children, and of our planet, and that of the future of our security and survival, please, just leave the animals alone.”

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

13:33

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 4 - The High Economic Cost

15:39

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 4 - The High Economic Cost

Today, we will examine some of the economic impacts of meat eating. The livestock industry is not only wasteful and unjust because of its hidden costs associated with health care and environmental issues, it also gets substantial subsidies from our hard-earned tax money. “It's a waste eating animal meat. It's a waste of energy and national treasure and money and causes world hunger. We take all the grains and the stocks to give them to the buffalo, and eat just a portion of it. How much does it cost for one kilo of beef? A piece of beefsteak costs many, many tons of grains and protein and water and electricity and medicine and doctor's money for caring for them.” “The meat costs very cheap because the government subsidizes it. So you’re eating your tax. You are eating your own money and having diseases and abnormal hormone levels in your body, and cholesterol and everything – all these poisonous antibiotics. Even if we take antibiotics, we have to take it a little bit, only when we need it. But they keep feeding the animals because they raise them in the farm industry that is very filthy and the animals easily get sick, so they give a lot of antibiotics all the time. Imagine eating all that!” Soon after the outbreak of COVID-19, Supreme Master Ching Hai sent an urgent message to all animal meat business and livestock factory owners, as well as those involved in fishing, egg, milk, fur, lab test, cosmetics and leather industries. In this message, Master listed the “crimes” the related parties have committed, including the economic consequences. “This is what hell will sentence you for: 1) You hand out a few hundred dollars and make the workers sell their conscience. They have no other work, perhaps, in your remote area, where you hide murderous sins from the world. 2) For tempting the loving parents with your cheap, subsidized, bloody flesh in disguise and reduced prices at taxpayers’ expense, so that they buy it and are forced to feed their babies, children and themselves too, mostly unaware of all the chemicals, extra poison, hormones, etc., in that piece of dead carcass. 3) For cashing in and living wealthily at the cost of hundreds of millions of humans’ and animals’ pain and suffering daily. 4) For wasting billions of hard-earned taxpayers’ money, all the time. 5) For corrupting political entities by lobbying with your cash and tactics so they could not speak-up against you, being so busy themselves. Thus, you are at liberty to maim, poison and massacre our animal co-inhabitants. Not just the animals but also your co-humans, mentally, spiritually, physically, as consequences of eating animals and using animal products.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 3 - The Dire Environmental Impact

18:06

Supreme Master Ching Hai (Vegan) on the Harmful Effects of Meat, Part 3 - The Dire Environmental Impact

Since the late 1980s, Supreme Master Ching Hai was already raising awareness about the fact that meat-eating depletes Earth’s vital resources and destroys our only home. “If you raise a pig or a buffalo, it takes a lot o f grains, a lot of energy, a lot of water, a lot of electricity, a lot of antibiotics, a lot of food, a lot of protein. In order to gain one kilo of beef, you waste a lot of national energy, money, water, clean and beautiful water, and then get some kind of polluted water in return due to the waste from the animals. And all kind of things. When you calculate the cost, oh, this is a loss of business. It's too much waste of natural food in order to feed our appetite.” “We began this industry of the meat diet, then everything got worse – more hospitals, more medicines, more sicknesses, more shortage of any kind, more temperature rise, and more suffering, more disasters, more hunger, more war.” “Each new scientific study finds that livestock production, this killing of animals for meat, bears increasingly more responsibility for the climate change crisis of our planet. In fact, the most recent calculations have concluded that livestock emits at least 51% of the greenhouse gases responsible for global warming. And soon after this new report, researchers from NASA just announced that methane, the potent greenhouse gas whose largest human-created source is the livestock industry, traps a hundred times more heat than carbon dioxide over a 20-year period.” “The many by-products are water shortages, food crisis, water, air, and soil pollution, deforestation, desertification, ocean dead zones, and biodiversity loss. We use almost half of the world’s grain supply to pour into the meat and dairy industry; most of our water supply; almost half the global fish caught to feed chickens and pigs; and 30% of the planet’s ice-free land is used for livestock raising, animal raising, and related business. With two hectares of land, we can support either 1 meat eater or 80 healthy vegans. The good news is that if we all stop eating meat and dairy, we can regain our all-protective ecosystems, stop over 60% of biodiversity loss, save four-fifths of the economic cost to mitigate emissions within 50 years, and much, much, much more.” Catastrophic disasters related to meat-eating could also come from outer space in the form of threatening solar flares, as explained by Supreme Master Ching Hai. “So we have all this violent atmosphere, because of war, because of hatred, because of mass murdering of animals, etc., etc., and abusing the environment. We are killing too much, so we attract this kind of a flare. It’s us, the humans, who attract it, the flare.”

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

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.”

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

17:10

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.”
