Today, we tour vegan festivals across four Asian countries: Korea, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. Our first stop is the 7th Vegan Festival in Seoul, Korea. The event’s theme was “World Vegan, World Peace” and our Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association members in Korea also participated with prominent banners that promoted Supreme Master Television. Master’s book “From Crisis to Peace” together with an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) flyer were distributed. Our second destination is a national 10-day veg fest called “Tesagan Gin Je” also known as “Nine Emperor Gods” festival celebrated in various locations across Thailand. In 2019, it was observed from September 28 until October 7. The event is held annually during the ninth month of the lunar calendar and is intended to encourage people to adopt a 10-day vegetarian or vegan diet for the purposes of spiritual cleansing and merit-gaining. We next cover a vegan event in Singapore, a cosmopolitan country named as the cleanest country in the world and the second most vegan-friendly Asian city by PETA Asia. We head down to the festival venue to soak in the positive energized ambience, to savor the yummy, colourful vegan goodies and meet Ms Pooja Bakhashi, the organizer, and Dr Priyadarshani Kamat, a clinically trained homeopath and holistic healer. They tell us about the purpose of organizing the Singapore Vegan Festival as well as how to eat healthy as a vegan and save the world, respectively. The final destination on our vegan festival tour is the magnificent island of Bali, Indonesia, also known as “The Land of the Gods.” The festival is called the “Bali Vegan Festival, Vegan Lifestyle Good for All,” and was held in quite a unique venue, a Buddhist temple in the area of Denpasar on the 26th and 27th of October 2019.
