“If they turn vegetarian (vegan), go green, do good deeds, they will only gain a better world, better environment and a nobler character. Besides, even if it’s not for saving the world, it’s high time that the human race should rise to a higher level of consciousness anyway. They should be noble, kind and compassionate. Be veg, go green, do good is not just for the planet, it’s for the whole human race ennobling spiritual merit and quality. They should do it, just for the sake of being noble.” “You have to envision a positive world, the Heaven on Earth that you would like it to be. You have to envision the nobler world, the positive world, the beautiful world, the Heaven world. Saving the world is a compassionate act. Even if the world is not saved, you are. You are saved by your loving kindness. Your merit will be multifold because you want to save others. This is the point that many of you still don’t get. If you want to save the world, if you want to do anything toward this goal, you’re enlarging your nobility, your heavenly attribute. So if you spread the encouragement to save the planet, if you be veg, if you go green, if you do good deeds, you help others because of other beings’ lives on Earth, because you want to save their lives on Earth, then you have a saintly quality. You reawaken your holiness. It’s not just about saving the physical planet and the physical lives. It’s also about how great you are for wanting to do so and actually partaking in this life-saving crusade.”

“I hope only that the human beings wake up, heed the warning, and save themselves, save their souls. Save the planet means save their souls, because if they listen and become vegetarian with the intention to save the beings on the planet, then they’re noble enough to be saved. (Yes, yes.) To be included in the saints’ circle. That’s the idea. It’s not saving the planet, it’s their attitude to save the planet and why they want to save the planet, that’s what counts.”

“Why is their purpose important? Because they think that by being vegetarian (vegan) now, they can save the world. They can save all people and all beings. Their hearts become so magnanimous, their hearts are so noble - that nobility emanates a kind of energy that can contact with the energy of Heaven. The energy of Heaven can be stronger in joining with the energy of humanity. Therefore, humanity becomes stronger. That noble energy, that infinite loving energy can emanate outside to protect the world; it’s not the eating vegetarian (vegan) that protects the world.”
