In Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association News from the United Kingdom…
On April 29 and 30, 2023, our Association members in the United Kingdom celebrated the UK launch of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s book, “Love is the Only Solution,” at the 20th anniversary of VegfestUK in the seaside city of Brighton. Over the two-day vegan event, 125 exhibitors, as well as 70 speakers and performers, gathered together to share the best in plant-powered living with some 5,500 visitors.
Among the speakers was one of our Association members who shared the stage with Karin Ridgers (vegan), VegfestUK Presenter and a Shining World Heroine Award Recipient, to introduce Master and Her elevating book “Love Is The Only Solution.”
“It was the book (The Key of Immediate Enlightenment) by the Supreme Master that I picked up at the Mind, Body, Soul Exhibition that I sat down and read, and I thought, that is it. I am not being a part of eating the rotting flesh of dead animals ever again. Because once you stop eating animals, you will grow and your love will just expand naturally. And that’s Master’s message in this book, ‘Love Is The Only Solution.’”
Alongside vegan street food, sweet treats, and entertainment, free downloadable Supreme Master Ching Hai’s e-books and paperback copies of “Love Is The Only Solution” were offered to the festival-goers, many of whom were appreciative of the gift, while several expressed interest in learning the Quan Yin Method of meditation after reading it.
Moreover, David Finney (vegan), a volunteer and spokesperson for the nonprofit organization Humane Being, also received a copy of the book which he later highly recommended, and self-recorded a book review video with an excerpt as follows:
“Hallo, I’m David Finney and I’ve just read this book called Love Is The Only Solution, written by Supreme Master Ching Hai. I found the book very engaging, very easy to read, it’s very short, and I think it has some really powerful messages which may be of interest to you. One of the messages that I got from it was, how can we best achieve a world of nonviolence. And in doing that, we can also save our planet from being uninhabitable in the future. It’s very easy to get lost in what we do in our daily lives and look to the next outing we have or the next meal we’re going to have. But I think what’s important when reading this book is to take ourselves out of that and think of what might be beneficial for the future and for future generations. ‘Love Is The Only Solution,’ have a read. It’s completely free.”
Prior to the event, “Love Is The Only Solution” was also introduced to more than 25,000 subscribers of VegfestUK via its social media platforms, website, and newsletter, as well as emails to all fans and networks.
We thank Karin Ridgers, David Finney, and all the organizers of VegFestUK, for your kind efforts in sharing Master’s uplifting publication “Love Is The Only Solution” with the multitude, and for bringing a joyous vegan weekend to the ever-growing plant-strong community. In Heaven’s guiding grace, may humanity return to a virtuous life and compassionate heart with Godspeed.
