A Journey to Veganism with Selene Nelson, Part 1 of 2

A Journey to Veganism with Selene Nelson, Part 1 of 2

Selene Nelson is an author, freelance journalist and vegan activist. Her latest book, Yes Ve-Gan! is a well written guide on how and why to go vegan. Selene Nelson was a vegetarian up to 2017, when she made the transition to veganism. Let’s find out what motivated Selene to make such a change. “What motivated me to become vegan was my love for animals, first and foremost. I was already vegetarian, when I went vegan, because I’d seen slaughterhouse footage and I thought I just don’t want any part of that but it’s very easy to look away from the dairy industry and the egg industry. I did that very successfully for quite a few years and it got to a point where I couldn’t look away anymore and I confronted the reality of these industries and once you see the footage and you are aware of how awful it is, I realized I would be just a real hypocrite if I decided dairy cows didn’t matter in the same way I thought beef cows did. So, it was just a decision I felt compelled to make.” “I wanted to travel and just experience life and it was that travel experience that made me become vegan. As soon as I did, I felt like I wanted to spread the message of veganism and let people know the reality of animal agriculture and allow people to make up their own minds, because I didn’t know any of that stuff before I was vegan and I think if I had that information I would’ve made the switch sooner, so I kind of felt it was my duty or my calling as cheesy as it might sound to actually use my journalism to spread that message.” Selene writes about the three main reasons for veganism: health, the environment, and animal ethics. Having travelled so extensively around the world, she shared with us how the vegan movement was reflected in all the various countries and cultures plus the reasons to motivate the success of veganism around the world. “I think definitely in the UK and the US there has been a strong interest in the health side of it, particularly recently. You have documentaries like the Game Changers on Netflix that are really popular and getting people to understand that vegan diet is not only healthy but it can actually be the best diet for you.”

Tal Gilboa: At The Forefront of Inspiring Israel's Vegan Movement, Part 2 of 3

Tal Gilboa: At The Forefront of Inspiring Israel's Vegan Movement, Part 2 of 3

In 2013 Tal Gilboa co-founded “Israel Animal Liberation Front” which was renamed “Total Liberation Israel” in 2018. This is one of the fastest growing social movements of our time calling for the total liberation of animals everywhere through marches, rallies and blockading trucks to the slaughter houses etc. The animal justice movement is increasingly attracting adherents across Israel and the activism is paving the way for a new era in animal rights. Besides various initiatives including creative protests and demonstrations, Tal Gilboa was also delivering lectures to diverse audiences: from high-school students to the military, business and political decision-makers. Her passion for animal causes took her to face unchartered territory, to compete for the first time and won the 6th edition of the intense contest of HaAh HaGadol. “Half a million people changed their diet while I was there. And everything that I did was just to think about, ‘It's going to do good for the animals or not?’”

A Journey to Veganism with Selene Nelson, Part 2 of 2

We spoke to Selene in early February, 2020, at the Plant Powered Expo in London, where we were so excited to learn about her new book Yes Ve-Gan! Let’s hear what she had to tell us about this exciting time in her life. “So my new book Yes Ve-Gan! was published a month ago and it’s a blueprint for vegan living, so it’s letting people know how they can make the change and also explaining why you would want to; so it does cover the three main points: health, the environment and animals. But the reason why I really wanted to write it was because I wanted to communicate the joy of veganism; how happy it makes you, just something I never anticipated.” “The biggest shock I had when I went vegan was how much I loved it and that’s something that I see reflected all the time in other vegans. Every vegan I know says their only regret is not doing it sooner and I think there is a reason for that.” In 2018, Selene found herself in the middle of a public media storm when William Sitwell, the editor of a highly respected publication, Waitrose Food magazine, ridiculed her pitch to publish a series of vegan recipes. The email mocking vegans made headlines prompting lots of conversations on mainstream news media. In the midst of the storm, Selene had the opportunity to meet with the editor and talk about veganism, which reached over 650 million views online. Looking back at this episode in her career, Selene said, “I definitely didn’t expect that reaction from the editor. But I also never could have anticipated how big the story became and how angry it made some people. And I did already know that veganism was a highly divisive subject, but what that issue really brought home was the fact that eating animals, or not eating animals, is an extremely contentious issue.” In fact, one year later, William and Selene ended up on the cover of ‘The Telegraph Magazine’ talking about veganism. The beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai applauds all the vegan media in the world, and had this to say at a climate change conference in Washington DC. “The media has a very important role in our society, everybody knows that. The printed words are very powerful. People are too busy with their daily activities, so they look to the media for informing and reporting relevant events, important matters, and all necessary information for their lives. So, the media is a useful tool to awaken one another at this crucial time: a time when our planet and the lives on it are in danger.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully presents the Shining World Courage & Compassion Award to Selene Nelson, with all love and high salute for your noble work. May you enjoy continued success and constant protection by Heaven.”

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 2 of 3

After watching the documentary “What the Health” and becoming a vegan, Tabitha regained her health and positivity. As a woman of faith, Tabitha received the message to share what she was eating via videos, which she is still doing to this day, with great success as unexpected opportunities presented themselves. “But I honestly feel like, ever since I've been on this journey, it just started shinning brighter. I truly believe I’m on assignment. I started this journey to save my life, but now, I’m helping to save other people's and I think that's the amazing part of it, so it definitely brought my spirituality and my assignment together and I cannot deny that, and I love it.” Having been raised in a Christian family, Tabitha feels that eating vegan is what was intended for us, just like food from the Garden of Eden. “I believe that we are supposed to eat from the land, and I believe that eating from the land heals us. I know it healed me. I don't judge anybody for their belief, but you have to believe what your body tells you.” Since becoming a vegan, Tabitha’s spirituality has flourished. Being so vibrant, she creates soulful, timely and welcome positive-mindset messages for her social media followers, whom she refers to as her “family.” “Because life is peaks and valleys, ups and downs, and we have to focus on knowing that the ‘up’ is coming again. And that's just how I live my life.” “If I lead by example and I do it with love, it’ll change the mind of people, because if you get somebody’s heart, then, they'll listen to you.” Tabitha Brown’s light shines brightly, and her powerful messages of self-love, self-compassion, kindness and resilience are a treasure for everyone.

Keegan Kuhn (vegan) – On a Mission to Better the World through Films and Music, Part 1 of 2

We are honored to feature the award-winning filmmaker and acclaimed musician, Mr. Keegan Kuhn from Arizona, United States. Two of his feature-length documentaries, “Cowspiracy - The Susainability Secret” and “What the Health,” have gained international recognition as major difference makers in our battle against the world’s critical climate emergency. What many people may not know is that Mr. Kuhn is also a professional singer who has been touring with his band “xTrue Naturex” since 2008, raising public awareness about the plight of trillions of land and aquatic animals annually exploited for human use. Through their documentaries, Keegan and Kip pinpointed the livestock industry as the single most destructive force on the planet today. Through the process of making the films Cowspiracy and What the Health Keegan became convinced that the way to save our planet from this insidious industry is to mobilize the power of consumers.

A Vegan Visionary: The Life of His Excellency Laurent Lamothe, Part 2 of 3

His Excellency Mr. Laurent Lamothe assumed the position of Prime Minister of the Republic of Haiti right after the 2010 earthquake. In doing so, he witnessed firsthand the biggest natural disaster tragedy in the history of the Caribbean caused by extreme weather due to climate change. Years later, he was invited to the Monaco Better World Forum 2019, to share his experience in rebuilding the country as Haiti’s Prime Minister. His stance to protect our precious oceans is well-known, as was his leadership in Haiti with the banning of all importing, manufacturing, and marketing of plastic and foam containers (polyethylene and polystyrene products). His Excellency pointed out the importance of having a working strategy and his choice of being part of the solution by being vegan. His Excellency also indicated that the vegan solution should be made known worldwide to people across all spectrums because we are in extreme urgency right now. Talking has to turn into action. "What not to do as a government. So, we truly need citizens to be aware (of it). Not just at the level of government, but at the level of civil society, at the level of foundations, at the level of non-governmental organizations in order to work in unison.” “I personally am a vegan. So, I’ve already taken that step." "So, applying the Paris Accord would be the first thing for governments, and of course, that’s on a global scale. On the local scale…locally, is to give benefits, is to give credits to companies that are doing so. So, incentivizing companies and, ultimately is to encourage the shift also, to new solutions.” “Fight on the demand, fight on the price-based competition, so that the plant-based might be less expensive than the animal-based. On top of what I said before, which is the subsidies, which is lowering the pricing, which is incentivizing demand, which is competition, which is really raising awareness." "I think, that’s very important because the lobby is where the legislation will get shifted and get changed or will remain in the status quo."

The Vivacious Vegan Ambassador, Jane "Unchained" Velez-Mitchell, Part 2 of 3

Jane Velez-Mitchell’s enthusiasm in spreading the vegan message is inspirational. Her website, Jane Unchained, now reaches more than one million people. Jane and her team of volunteer contributors use every possible social platform to promote vegan living. “This is a crucial time. Every single person who wants to save this planet, go on social media every time you eat a vegan meal, put it on Instagram, go live on Facebooks. We need to flood social media with vegan content and normalize non-violence, and normalize non-violence, normalize veganism, normalize a compassionate lifestyle.” “We just finished a documentary called, ‘Countdown to Year Zero!’ Everybody needs to see ‘Countdown to Year Zero.’ It is the most important subject. If the world is uninhabitable for humans, it’s too hot to support human life, all the other issues will pale. And the solution is simply to eliminate the meat and dairy from our diet. It is the leading cause of climate change.”

Across medical fields worldwide, more health practitioners are turning to the plant-based diet solution to help people to improve their wellness and treat diseases. Among them, is Julieanna Hever, a registered dietitian from the United States. She is the author of four books, has published two peer-reviewed medical journal articles, and is the nutrition columnist for VegNews Magazine. Her powerful TEDx talk impacted hundreds of thousands of viewers. “I just so passionate about nutrition and I loved it. And I found out, wow, you can actually get protein better from plants, and you can get a better source of iron from plants, and all of those questions that I was concerned about previously, I was completely satisfied and completely comfortable to switch myself over to a plant-based diet. And then I started implementing it with my clients and the differences in their results were literally night and day.” “Everyone feels better eating a plant-based diet. They notice a quicker recovery, so it’s a wonderful way to boost your performance naturally without any supplements or substances and it’s just a really healthy way.” “It’s a tome of facts and we synthesized a lot of information in our ‘Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition.’ So, it’s really like all the whys and all the hows in an easy, digestible book.”

Matthew Appleby: Passionate Organic Vegan Gardening

Matthew Appleby: Passionate Organic Vegan Gardening

The interest in vegan horticulture and gardening has expanded exponentially, as more people become aware of how typical methods of growing plants and crops involve the use of environmentally damaging synthetic chemicals and practices that harm our precious animal co-inhabitants. "I’m Matthew Appleby, I’m editor for 'Horticulture Week.' I first started about 20 years ago being a vegan. I realized this was quite a sort of doable way of living. What motivates most people to become vegan is because they care about animals. And they care about the environment. And they care about their health, and it’s a combination of those three. Vegan gardening is gardening without exploiting animals. So, it’s using homemade composts and fertilizers, rather than animal composts and animal-based fertilizers. It’s also gardening with wildlife in mind. So rather than exploiting animals or trying to attract animals, it’s leaving the animals to do their own thing on your plot. It’s also gardening for vegan health. So, I’m interested in growing what’s nutritionally right for a vegan. I make vegan compost just the same as anyone else is making compost. You can have your kitchen scraps, your grass cuttings, leaves, you can have any leftover vegetable matter, but you just don’t use anything that’s animal-based. So, you don’t use anything which is from a farmed animal and you wouldn’t chuck in your eggshells, and you wouldn’t chuck in meat anyway because it basically doesn’t compost well, and it attracts rodents. I don’t dig, and I think it’s really common in a lot of areas of gardening now, and non-vegan gardeners increasingly not digging. And that a lot of people see this as a really good idea because you don’t want to disturb the layers of the soil because you know you create erosion, you break up your beneficial animals’ homes. So, I plant covered crops. Hopefully they’ll break down and put some nitrogen back in the soil, get some organic matter back in the soil which will create quite a good sort of soil crumb." Our appreciation Matthew Appleby, for your dedication to assisting gardeners to attain healthy and ecologically-sound green spaces. May the Heavens forever bless you! We hope to see more of your work in the future. Best wishes for your noble prospective endeavors!

Kuntal Joisher - The First Vegan on the Top of the World, Part 1 of 2

Kuntal Joisher - The First Vegan on the Top of the World, Part 1 of 2

Today we are sharing the achievements and successes of a courageous and noble man, Mr. Kuntal Joisher, the world’s first vegan to scale Mt. Everest. His climbing journey of the Himalayas started in 2009. With his persistent determination and fortitude, Mr. Kuntal stood on the top of Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the word, in May, 2016, from the Nepal side and again successfully in 2019, from the China side. “Sitting here right now, it’s almost been seventeen years that I have now been a vegan. And I have to tell you, that this was the best decision I have ever made in my life, because since that day I have been able to sleep every single night peacefully, knowing that o animals had to be killed for me to lead my life or me to pursue my dreams. It was a chance encounter in 2009, where I actually found that climbing mountains was the calling of my life. Mt. Everest simply cannot be conquered. It is always the mountain that decides whether you are going to make it to the top. So, it was during this journey, that I overcame so many of my self-doubts, so many of my limitations, and I conquered myself.”

Running for Good – ‘Queen of the Extreme’ Fiona Oakes (vegan), Part 1 of 5

Today, it is our privilege to feature one of the top ultra-endurance athletes on the planet, Fiona Oakes, from Essex, England, UK. Fiona is one of the greatest athletes in the world judging by her records. She is the Guinness World Record holder for the fastest female in cumulative time to complete a marathon within the Antarctic Circle, as well as on the other six continents, at 23 hours, 27 minutes and 40 seconds. She also holds the Guinness World Records for the fastest female to complete a marathon on each of the seven continents plus the North Pole, in both aggregate time (28 hours, 20 minutes, and 50 seconds) and elapsed time (225 days and 18 hours). Fiona has been dubbed the “Queen of the Extreme” by her peers due to her grit in some of the most challenging races in the world. “I didn’t take to running because I wanted to run, I wanted to promote veganism and the benefits of a plant-based diet. I realized, I can rescue animals, and I can deliver harmonic existence for those in my care, but for the billions out there who are suffering, I can’t touch. How do I do that? And that was when I formulated the idea of going out and running. The reason was I wanted a platform to speak out.” “There was no social media at the time; the only thing that I was fairly good at was sports, but not running, but the only attention in sports for women was Paula Radcliffe who was running the marathon, and it had all kinds of hashtags, if you like. This is the toughest event in the athletic calendar, and if you can complete a marathon you can do anything.” Today, at the age of 51. Fiona’s running career remains in full swing. It is safe to say that she has proven what she had set out to prove: that a lifelong plant-based diet can sustain the highest levels of sports performance and physical health: “I am living proof of it, I’ve been running now for 20 years. I’ve got such versatility, and I am still doing it.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “With tears of love and awe, gratefully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Ms. Fiona Oakes, with heartfelt praises and sincere respect for all that you do for our precious animal friends and the planet, plus a gift of US$21,000 as a humble token of support for your noble work. May you have continued success in your heartfelt, touching and inspiring endeavors and may the Providence bless you and your loved ones forevermore. You are a Saint!”

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Through prayer, Tabitha received the message to share with others what she was eating as a vegan. Adopting the plant-based diet reversed her debilitating, mystery illness that had left her largely incapacitated for nineteen months. But upon reflection, Tabitha noted that there were other signs showing that eating animal derived foods were causing her harm. Regarding a plant-based diet, Tabitha wisely suggests, “Know your why” for going vegan. From personal experiences, she knows how many health benefits can come from the vegan diet and the immense impact to one’s life. Tabitha is also a very creative individual, from acting, to creating T-shirts, and even designing stunning waist capes for women called “Capeable by Tabitha Brown.” Tabitha is also a comedian, and has been cast in many films, including the multiple award-winning “I Am Still Here,” “Laughing to the Bank,” and others. “Listen, without art, it's a cold world, honey. Art helps us escape. It helps us dream. It helps us see things in a different way. Art is everything, like our life is art.” “Art is laughter, it is tears, it’s emotion, it’s everything that makes the world go around and without it, it’s a dark place. So I feel like, I'm living art, that's kind of how I live my life, I'm expressive. You know, I'm full of laughter and smiles and art is love, and that's definitely the best part of me, is the love. When you spread love, right? Like you’re smiling now, ‘cuz I'm smiling, right? That's art. So, my artistry is contagious. So yeah, I love it. Even as an actor, I love comedy.” Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken on several occasions about artists and the importance of art in our lives, as in this conference with Aulacese (Vietnamese) artists in 2018. “The artists are the ones who bring a lot of mental and physical comfort, a lot of happiness, a lot of joy, to the people in this world. An artist is someone who comforts our spirit, and is indispensable in this life. Why don’t we thank them? We should at least have gratitude.”

Tal Gilboa: At The Forefront of Inspiring Israel's Vegan Movement, Part 1 of 3

Ms. Gilboa has become a celebrity at home and abroad through her numerous initiatives for bringing awareness of raising animal livestock and for encouraging everyone to adopt veganism. As one of the most influential animal-rights activists and key resource on veganism, Tal Gilboa was appointed as the Animal-Rights Advisor to the Prime Minister of Israel. Witnessing the ordeal of a mother cow served as a key moment for Tal Gilboa. She reflected on how best to honor a parent’s responsibility to children in terms of clear and honest education regarding animals. “And what I did was to take them all, the three of them, to farms. I wanted them to to watch the truth. Now I could say the truth to them by my knowledge, the calves are in these little cages, because they’re separated from their mothers. This is what I did and they changed because of that." Tal Gilboa's noble example and bold actions have reached farther than her whole family's turining vegan; she has also influenced many others within her country.

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 1 of 3

Today, we are delighted to introduce Tabitha Brown – an actress and vegan influencer who has amassed over 3 million followers on the social networking platform, TikTok. She is also a popular content creator on YouTube, a brand ambassador for Whole Foods Market and all things plant-based, and an extraordinary vegan cook. Buoyed by her effervescent energy, charming voice, and her soulful encouragement, TikTok fans have referred to her as “Mom” or “Auntie” and send her messages of thanks for making them feel loved and comforted. Tabitha made the transition to a vegan diet after experiencing a lengthy period of ill-health. Fortunately, Tabitha’s daughter, Choyce, came home one day with some information that would radically change Tabitha’s life. “My daughter came home from school - teenage daughter - and she said, ‘Mom, you have got to see this documentary we watched at school called “What the Health”.’ So, we all together watched it, my husband and my daughter - and I was like, ‘Wow this is interesting!’ But the thing that got me was when they said that diseases are not hereditary; it’s that we’re eating the same thing causing the same disease.” “When I looked at everything, ‘meat’ was the common denominator. And so, I told my husband, ‘Let’s do a 30-day challenge.’ I’m going to take meat out of the diet. And the doctors couldn’t tell me what was wrong. Every test I would take, ‘Oh, it’s normal!’, but why am I still feeling sick?” To her surprise and immense relief, after nineteen months of debilitating pain and fatigue, the vegan diet was the key to restoring her health, and giving Tabitha her life back. “And so, we decided as a family, to do a 30-day vegan challenge and on day 10, my headaches went away. I was walking through my kitchen and I was like, ‘my head ain’t hurting.’ I started feeling better from that day. I started getting my energy back, I started just feeling like myself again. On day 29, I told my husband, I said, I think this is my path, I’m going vegan.” Tabitha’s sincere faith in God, guided her from ill-health to become an internet celebrity with millions of followers and the success that she could never have imagined. It’s as our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has explained regarding Matthew 6:33 in the Holy Bible: “Once God takes charge, once God awakens within you, everything else will be taken care of. ‘Seek you first the Kingdom of God, and all the things shall be added unto you.’ (Matthew 6:33, The Holy Bible) That's what it really means.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present the Shining World Vegan Influencer Award to Ms. Tabitha Brown, with all love and gratitude. May God forever protect and bless you.”

Monk Coleman (vegan) – From Alleys of Darkness to Highways of Enlightenment, Part 1 of 2

We are so happy to feature the colorful life of vegan bodybuilder, life-style coach and meditation instructor, Monk Coleman, previously known as Joe Coleman. Mr. Coleman’s story paints an arc from difficult beginnings as a directionless young man who got entangled in addiction and the criminal world, to rediscovering and trusting his inner voice, guiding him to become the compassionate, vibrant vegan success he embodies today. Before fully adopting his new name, Monk underwent some profound changes in his consumption habits. Over time and through meditation, he discarded all unhealthy practices, including eating meat or any other animal products. After he stopped eating meat, Monk felt sure that he was no longer hurting anyone. A few years later though, when he started to notice the word “vegan” appearing more often during his research into vegetarian bodybuilding, he began to dig deeper, only to discover the sad truth about the processes behind other animal products, such as eggs and milk. In a 2019 motivational clip for Shining World Compassion Award recipient, Mercy For Animals, Monk shared his experiences of meditation, becoming vegan and plant-based bodybuilding. “Basically, through my meditation practice, I became reconnected to all life and didn’t want to do any harm to any other beings, and at that moment, I became vegan.” Mr. Coleman, an IFPA (International Federation of Physique Athletes) Pro and WNBF (World Natural Bodybuilding Federation) champion in Natural Physique, attributes his success in bodybuilding to the tried and tested characteristics of consistency, hard work, commitment, as well as his switch to the plant-strong diet. Monk said: “It was about one year after turning vegan that my body started to change some. I got leaner, healthier, more energetic, and I healed quicker. It felt good.” Monk recommends the following to people wanting to go vegan today: “My advice for anybody that wants to go vegan is to do some research. There are all kinds of good information out there. There’s nothing bad about going vegan. In fact, just the opposite, it’s a win-win-win, for the animals, your health, and the planet.”

Running for Good – The ‘Queen of Extreme’ Fiona Oakes (vegan), Part 5 of 5

00:17:05

Running for Good – The ‘Queen of Extreme’ Fiona Oakes (vegan), Part 5 of 5

Welcome to the final episode of “Running for Good – ‘Queen of the Extreme’ Fiona Oakes.” In the feature-length documentary by award-winning filmmaker Keegan Kuhn, Running for Good, Fiona talks about the driving force behind her dedication: “I've been very strong, but I’m very, very sensitive. I abhor cruelty to humans and animals alike. I don't think that in the 21st century especially, people should be suffering, and I certainly don't think animals should be suffering at people's hands. I can’t turn a blind eye. It’s not in me to do that.” The reality is clear, whether it’ll be SARS, MERS, Covid-19, Nipah, Ebola, Swine Fever, Avian Flu, they are all caused by eating animals. Whether those animals be factory-farmed, it makes no difference. Since all coronaviruses are caused by transferal from non-human to human animals, then surely now is the time to consider adopting a global vegan policy, which would be the most effective way of preventing future incidences. We may develop a vaccine for this particular strain, but what if it mutates, or another one comes along, which, given our history, seems more than likely. It may be argued you cannot tell people what to eat, but they are now being told to stay incarcerated in their homes, isolated, and feeling helpless and frightened. Surely, being vegan and ending this type of disaster is a choice they should be made more aware of and allowed to consider as a very real and viable option to protect themselves and each other from this happening again. In Her recent “Urgent Message to World Leaders,” Supreme Master Ching Hai points to the same solution and lays out a roadmap to a peaceable future: “You know well by now, by the UN’s warning, by scientific research report, we know that the meat, fish, eggs, milk, laboratory tests on animals, leather industry; ANYTHING TO DO WITH HURTING ANIMALS, domestic or wild, ARE DETRIMENTAL TO OUR WORLD. We talk about all kinds of climate reduction, or reducing air pollution BUT animal raising, fish, egg, milk industries, etc., anything to do with animals, are the worst producers of lethal methane gas which heats up our planet. So, stopping these brutal, murderous businesses is the fastest way to cool our Earth.”

Dolly Vyas-Ahuja (vegan)- A True Voice for Ahimsa, Part 2 of 2

Dolly Vyas-Ahuja (vegan)- A True Voice for Ahimsa, Part 2 of 2

With her endless enthusiasm, Dolly has become friends with virtually everyone on the who’s who list of the animal rights movement in India and the USA. One person she is particularly close to is the renowned author, environmentalist, social justice advocate, and animal activist Dr. Sailesh Rao, a Shining World Award for Earth Protection laureate, who is also one of the key originators of the Internet as we know it today. “He talks about all this methane that is going into the air. He’s also talking about us chopping down the forests. Now, every 10 seconds, the Amazon forest is being chopped down for animal agriculture. So, animal agriculture is the number one reason for ocean dead zones, habitat destruction, environmental devastation, and these things have to change.” Dolly’s activism has taken her around the world. In India, she delivered a rousing speech at the World Vegan Conference in New Delhi in July 2019, about the harmful effects of dairy. “And God, Lord Shiva, Lord Krishna, Lord Jesus, Lord Buddha is full of compassion and love. They're trying to teach that, do not harm anyone, do not separate a mother and a child. So, I think we really need to understand what God is trying to say. And that is to live with compassion. That should be number one.” Dolly recognizes that dairy consumption is deep-rooted in Indian culture, which is one reason why she is working hard on her documentary film as a way to change the misconceptions in her motherland. “Once people find out the truth of who they really are, which is compassion, they want to change. They start thinking about this deeply. And I think that veganism is such a powerful movement right now, and it's growing so fast, because, if we don't go vegan, we are hurting our planet, and we really need to secure it for our future generations.”

Monk Coleman (vegan) - From Alleys of Darkness to Highways of Englightenment, Part 2 of 2

Monk Coleman (vegan) - From Alleys of Darkness to Highways of Englightenment, Part 2 of 2

Monk believes there is a purpose for everything, including his dark experiences. Let’s hear about his self-realization from his soul searching through meditation. “So, all the things, I look back now, it’s not about poor me, or being a victim. It’s like, wow, I needed every bit of this, so I can live my purpose and share this with the world. ‘My purpose here is to bring this message to you while pointing you in the direction of unconditional love, which brings transformation so that you will realize your full unlimited potential.’” This is truly an inspiring goal and altruistic endeavor by Joe, the “Vegan Monk” Coleman. So, how would Monk encourage our viewers to change if some are still undecided about the consumption of alcohol, tobacco and other substances, and how would he inspire them to try to find answers from within, through meditation? “Anything we do destructive to ourselves, there's a reason why we're doing it. Each individual has a different path to getting to that point where they don't need the alcohol, they don't need the drugs, they don’t need the cigarettes, they don't need all the distractions that they have, to not feel what they’re feeling. So, the more you sit, the more things become calm.” Monk believes that the integration of meditation into one’s daily life is the most effective way to achieve freedom from the noisy influences of the world around us. Monk brings his enthusiasm and wisdom to outreach at health and wellness venues, schools and rehabilitation centers, to name a few. He is also writing a book, Love Over Fear-10 Steps to a Purpose Filled Life, soon to be published. He is on the mission of guiding and uplifting others with the messages of compassion and love, as well as motivating others to become their brighter and better selves, both physically and spiritually. As a father, Monk’s approach to teaching his children is to act as an example, allowing them to be themselves rather than enforcing his ideas into their minds. He believes that some form of celestial knowledge and experience is bestowed on children when they arrive here, or even before. Monk Coleman has remarkably transformed his life from darkness to the journey towards enlightenment, and has been experiencing the connection to his inner wisdom through meditation. Thank you, Monk, for sharing your generous and loving heart with others to help make this world a better place for humans and animals alike.

“Live Fashion, Walk Compassion” – An Interview with Israeli Fashion Designer Liat Lahav (vegan)

“Live Fashion, Walk Compassion” – An Interview with Israeli Fashion Designer Liat Lahav (vegan)

The talented Mrs. Lahav and her family reside in the bustling city of Tel Aviv, Israel. Liat’s transition to a vegan lifestyle was met with the typical challenges of customary habits and beliefs, but in her heart, she knew that a compassionate lifestyle must be led by example. "Well, my name is Liat Lahav. I launched SHANILI from passion for animals, compassion and love, and I called my brand 'Live Fashion, Walk Compassion,' because it’s fashion, first it’s fashion, and everybody loves fashion. And I wanted to show people and not only vegans, all people, that you can buy fashion and beautiful things that doesn’t need to have anything from animals. I’m using different kinds of microfibers. It can be like a suede, and really leather-like, like smooth leather. And until you see it and touch it and wear it, you can’t understand and believe that it’s not leather. It’s exactly the same. And it’s very good material. It’s synthetic. It’s very easy to process it. And it doesn’t damage the Earth, like the leather does. And especially, you can reproduce them because it’s synthetic. So, it’s recycling. So, it’s only a win-win situation. My dream, and this is my vision and my first purpose, is to bring the opportunity for vegans, vegetarians and anybody else who doesn’t want to consume animal products, to bring them the fashion into their lives. I’m all the time announcing that SHANILI is the pioneer for the vegan fashion revolution. And I’m working to get there. And so, I’m asking everybody here in Israel and outside Israel, if you know how you can help me to achieve that, and to bring the vegan fashion to the world, just I’m here. I’m open to hear everything and to make different kinds of collaborations, just to end this suffering from our world." Compassionate Liat Lahav, we thank you for your noble endeavors to bring a Heavenly way of life to God’s children on our precious planet. We wish you growing success and pray others will follow your animal-friendly example to Live Fashion, Walk Compassion.
