Supreme Master Ching Hai shares message of global unity. On June 20, 2020, Indigenous people around the world joined together online to open World UNITY Week with peace-promoting prayers and messages. The event was also attended by notable representatives from various organizations, faiths and cultures to discuss urgent topics such as climate action as well as interfaith and interracial harmony. As the facilitator of the opening ceremony, the Honorable Chief Phil Lane Jr. of the Ihanktonwan Dakota and Chickasaw Nations in North America extended a heartfelt invitation to Supreme Master Ching Hai to join the auspicious gathering. Although unable to attend due to Her intensive meditation retreat, She graciously recorded a special video message for the participants, which Chief Lane described as “so beautiful and powerful beyond words.” So please, if you would play the one from our dear Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai.
“Ahoy. Greetings to you all in the Unity. Thank you for inviting me for this precious occasion, even though you are very busy organizing the event but still you take your time to write to me and give me this honorable invitation. May God bless all First Nations. May God bless all you, the Indigenous people, everywhere on our planet. May God bless our Mother Earth. It’s good that we have this opportunity to express our unity spirit and gratefulness to Heaven and Earth for our world really needs it. Needs earnest prayers and sincere effort to unite all beings on the planet. Because we are all nourished from Earth and blessed by Heavens. We are brothers and sisters including all non-human beings on Earth. It is the negative force that tries so hard since time immemorial to divide us and to make us hurt each other. But with pure prayers and sincere effort, we will win. However, just prayers and talk are not good enough. We have to act. We have to change our way of life to more benevolent, compassionate, loving and kind towards each other, regardless of race, species and nationalities. This unprecedented time gives us opportunity to reflect inwardly, since outwardly we have been limited. But our soul is forever free as long as we know how to turn inward and find our real self, our soul, which is a part of the Divine, then we will feel free no matter what circumstances, no matter if we are hindered by physical situation. This is a time for us to be quietly contemplating our true nature within. To ask ourselves, why misfortune happened and open our hearts to listen to Divine guidance. The Divine guidance told me that, ‘As we sow, so shall we reap.’ So let’s start now, from now to sow all benevolent deeds that we can, so that we will get benevolent outcomes in return for our future. The past we cannot change, but we could change our future, depends on our present actions, our future will be doomed or bright. I think you all know what I am talking about, since you are all spiritual people and have deep-rooted spiritual knowledge passed down to you since ages, and ages. The wisdom of old has never been lost in the community of the indigenous people. And you know well, according to that wisdom, we cannot expect full happiness, full joy if we cause sorrow to others including our Earth co-tenants, the sweet animals and all other beings around us. They are the blessing sent from Heaven to help us in our sojourn on this planet. We should appreciate them, protect them and be grateful for their presence. I guess, many guests would have more wise words and compassionate messages to share. So my simple message is: ‘Be Vegan, Make Peace.’ Thank you all for doing your part to save our world. All my love and God bless.”
Our deep gratitude to our Most Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai for sharing these enlightening and hopeful words with the world. Also, our sincere appreciation, the Honorable Chief Lane Jr. and all those involved in organizing this important unifying event. We continue to pray that humanity will live compassionately as one with all life on Earth and will take heed of Master’s urgent loving message: “Be Vegan, Make Peace.”
Please tune in for Supreme Master Television’s program on the World UNITY Ceremony at a later date.
