Korean Government aid agency and UNICEF help vulnerable people in Jordan.
Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are collaborating on a three-year project to engage and support vulnerable youth in Jordan, with US$6 million in funding from KOICA. The initiative will support climate resilience for communities in vulnerable and remote areas through improved access to clean water and sanitation. Climate action clubs will be formed to empower vulnerable youth and communities in Jordan. The contribution will help young people with creativity, innovation and much-needed digital skills to prepare them for future employment. Korea is a laureate of three Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion and Shining World Leadership Awards for Protection and Peace. Much gratitude to KOICA and UNICEF, for your commitment and generous spirit to support lovely Jordanians. In Heaven’s blessings, we hope this funding will help the youth of Jordan to grow and prosper in a world of support and kindness for the next generation.
Blue economy contributes to climate resilience.
According to the World Bank, the blue economy is the “sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth,’’ as well as improved livelihoods, while preserving the health of the ocean ecosystem. At the recent COP27 climate conference held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, the importance of the blue economy was discussed as a vital strategy in the efforts to mitigate climate change. Plastic pollution has become a major issue in recent years, which threatens marine life and ecosystems. Our oceans have also been plundered for their marine life, with trillions of fish-people pulled out of the seas every year, putting increasing pressure on the vital natural ecosystems. The blue economy aims to bring balance and harmony back to one of our precious natural resources. Bravo, to all those involved in the blue economy discussions. In the grace of the Providence, we pray that humans stop destroying the ocean and restore balance to planet Earth. Vegan: cos we abhor sadistic cruelty.
Up next, new medical research proves meditation as effective as common drug in reducing anxiety. Please embrace this moment to express our gratitude to rice milk producers for making a delicious and nutritious drink. We’ll return with more cooling news here on Supreme Master Television.
Hallo, charming viewers, I’m Marley, a vegan noblewoman from the Masked Lapwing kingdom. Enjoying a youthful and carefree spirit is so easy when our thoughts, speech and actions are focused on embracing all life instead of taking it. From today onwards, we can choose to live by this benevolent principle! I have a handy tip on how to protect your pipes from freezing during the winter. If you have a pool, be sure to drain it ahead of frosty temperatures. Don’t forget to drain your sprinklers too. Additionally, detach garden hoses from outdoor faucets and shut off the water supply lines to the hose bibs in your home. Then, allow the remaining water to be released from the pipes that go out to the exterior faucets. Be sure to empty the evaporative cooler as well if you have one. Next, shut off the water supply and detach it until the device is needed again. These steps will save you time and money in the long run! Thank you for watching and love you for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants alike. Here’s the weather around the world!
Meditation found to treat anxiety as effectively as conventional medication.
A recent paper published in the JAMA Psychiatry medical journal by researchers from the United States and France detailed an eight-week study involving 276 adults with anxiety disorders. The participants were divided into two sets, with one group receiving a daily dosage of Lexapro, a commonly prescribed medication to treat anxiety. The second group joined a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. They attended a 2.5 hour, twice-weekly mindfulness meditation class and were asked to practice 45 minutes of daily meditation. At the end of the eight weeks, both groups showed a 20% decrease in symptom severity. Study author Dr. Elizabeth Hoge of Georgetown University Medical Center in the US hopes that the findings will encourage the incorporation of MBSR programs as a standard treatment option for anxiety. We thank the researchers involved for this important study. In Heaven’s blessings, may we all flourish in body, mind and spirit in a kind and loving world.
World Bank program employs women in Bangladesh.
The World Bank’s Western Economic Corridor and Regional Enhancement Program in Bangladesh has created more than 128,000 jobs for women who lack employment opportunities due to the impact of COVID-19 on the economy. The project’s goal is also to increase women’s labor participation in traditionally male dominated areas, such as in the transport sector. Additionally, the initiative utilizes the Bank’s technology, which helps supervisors to monitor the work sites with their mobile phones. Way to go, World Bank, on supporting Bangladeshi women in need. In the Love of Allah, may your program help to improve the economy in Bangladesh, through collaboration and care for one another.
Kindhearted couple in United States saves over 13,000 canine-people.
Ron Danta and Danny Robertshaw, co-founders of the nonprofit Danny and Ron’s Rescue, have transformed their home in Camden, South Carolina, into a dog-people shelter. An average of over 90 canine-individuals reside in their house at any one time, until adopted by a loving family. The compassionate couple, who saved 600 dog-persons after Hurricane Katrina, promise each dog-friend a future in which they will always be loved and cared for. A Netflix documentary about Danny and Ron’s Rescue entitled “Life in the Doghouse,” first aired in 2018. Their recently released book, “Forever Home: How We Turned Our House into a Haven for Abandoned, Abused and Misunderstood Dogs and Each Other,” has been highly praised. Bravo, Ron Danta and Danny Robertshaw, for your love in action. May your noble example inspire many people to treat all sentient beings with kindness, in God’s Goodwill. Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan): “Lovingly present the Shining World Compassion Award to Danny and Ron’s Rescue, plus US$10,000 as a humble token of support, for some dog-people’s medical needs, with all love and gratitude in God’s Mercy. May you and all involved have your hearts filled with the Grace of Heavenly Love and Peace. May all in your care find forever homes and protection in the Divine’s Blessing.” Vegan: animal-people’s hearts sing n dance.
Coming up, German corporation introduces plant-based meals in its 500 restaurants. Let’s pause for a moment to pray for inner guidance to remember our eternal connection with God Almighty. Supreme Master Television will return in just a moment with more gratifying news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Lively News for a Smiling World.
Large German corporation incorporates plant-based meals in all its restaurants.
Aramark Germany, a food service provider and facility management company, has introduced plant-based dishes in all 500 of its corporate restaurants in Germany. The decision was based on recommendations by the EAT-Lancet Commission report, which emphasizes a plant-forward diet where whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes comprise the greatest portion. Some of the scrumptious items on Aramark’s new menu include a Baked Kohlrabi with Buckwheat, Spinach and Smoked Tofu, and Vegetable Noodles with Caramelized Carrot, Pumpkin and Parsley Foam. Furthermore, Aramark is working to reduce their environmental impact by promoting the use of “crooked” produce. These fruits and vegetables, that have physical imperfections like slight marks and bumps, would usually end up in landfills due to their appearance. Bravo, Aramark! In Divine blessings, may your efforts in prioritizing the wellbeing of humanity and the planet, via plant-forward dietary changes, be a shining example for other corporations.
Almost extinct Australian marsupial-people making a comeback.
The population of northern hairy-nosed wombat-people has increased due to conservation efforts by ecologists. The Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat Recovery Program is helping to care for two groups of the marsupial-people in rural Queensland, which now number 315, up from 30 in 1982. The regions where they are located contain a special fence to keep them safe, and a new property that contains suitable soil for their underground homes is also being looked for. Great work, Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat Recovery Program members, on your success in helping these wombat-people in Australia to thrive. In Divine abundance, may your efforts continue to protect and restore the population of northern hairy-nosed wombat-individuals, as their loving energy blesses the land.
Now, it's time to put on that giggle suit and enjoy some mood elevation with the following joke, entitled, “Frugal Father.”
A girl asks her frugal dad:
“Dad, our school has a music club, and I want to join it. But, I have to bring my own instrument.”
Her dad hands her a chopstick and says:
“Ok, sure, sweetie. Here, take this chopstick and be the conductor.”
And now we have a heartline from Tú Anh in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam:
Dear Most Beloved Master, I am writing to You with my heart filled with gratitude. O Master, sometimes I don’t know how to express my appreciation to You. Watching the videos which showed Master suffering because of humanity, I cried and wished that God could use me somehow, so that I could bear the pain for You, because I can’t bear to see Your tears. O Master, the most compassionate and gentle One, I will follow Your footsteps with all my reverence. I would like to ask Your permission to recount my inner experience.
During my meditation, I saw a bus with a lot of people inside traveling on the road. Suddenly, there was an earthquake. The ground was shaking violently and kept cracking up. The road became like a vertical one, and all the bus passengers died. I was wondering what was happening.
Looking up at the dark sky, I saw many giant demons with curved and big horns. Their red eyes gazed at the Earth and sent forth destructive rays of energy. Then, fire rings appeared in the sky, which served as gates for the destructive energy to go through and towards the Earth.
I was scared and looked at myself. I saw myself standing in a big house with white light. The house had very bright light. It seemed to have all the columns and all the walls, but because the light was so bright, it shined through those big columns, so I thought I was standing inside a transparent house with extremely bright light. In that house, I calmly directed my loved ones what to do to save themselves in that urgent time. I noticed that my heart was very peaceful, and my voice was calm and clear. And it was so fortunate that my family members listened and did according to my instructions.
After coming out of meditation, I pondered and understood that the initiates, who practice the Quan Yin Method diligently, will be protected in that house of light. Even though the final time comes, those initiates will be protected, and due to the merits from their spiritual practice, they will be wise and calm to find a way to save their family members.
I am so grateful to You for giving me the most precious gift, which will not be damaged nor stolen by anyone. Via this inner experience, I wish that all brothers and sisters would listen to Master and meditate more diligently, because only spiritual practice can save yourself and your family members. Little disciple of Master!!! Tú Anh from Âu Lạc (Vietnam)
Dearest Tú Anh, Thank you for the vivid description of your inner experience.
Master has a response to your loving letter: “Devoted Tú Anh, thank you for your love and concern for my well-being. The Master’s body is made to bear the pain and suffering of this world, so that the debts of karma can be repaid. Your deep love for me and your wholehearted spiritual practice gladden my heart and make my job easier! Also, it is true that only diligent and sincere meditation practice can protect and uplift us and our many generations. May Buddha’s eternal Light shine brightly on you and pleasant Âu Lạc (Vietnam).”
