“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.

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!

A Vegan Visionary: The Life of His Excellency Laurent Lamothe (vegan), Part 3 of 3

A Vegan Visionary: The Life of His Excellency Laurent Lamothe (vegan), Part 3 of 3

To encourage the ongoing trend toward a plant-based food system, His Excellency Mr. Lamothe suggests that the governments provide Much-needed support to animal livestock farmers so that they can make a successful transition to plant-based farming. “You know, Haiti’s a very proud country, very proud people and we, we feel that we contributed a lot to the black world and we showed to, at the time, the white countries, that slave ownership was completely reprehensible and we rebelled against it and we won. So, that's a super idea that you give. I wish I was still in office and maybe taking the lead upon that and maybe trying to push the country towards that. But it's not far from that, because you know in Haiti you eat lots of vegetables. The people, especially the rural area, that's probably all they eat. Generally, there is a good foundation, I would say, for a vegan revolution there.”His Excellency Laurent Lamothe worked tirelessly on several challenging fronts. From designing and implementing social policies, to alleviating extreme poverty, to securing investments, to relocating the thousands of unsheltered Haitians affected by the 2010 earthquake, to tackling insecurity and rehabilitating schools, public buildings, bridges, and roads, His Excellency set to the task of rebuilding a resilient, prosperous, peaceful Haiti.The world-renowned spiritual master, Supreme Master Ching Hai, commented on this special quality during a conference with Supreme Master Television team members in September 2020. She said: “Peace is the most precious thing that any president can give to his country and the world.” His Excellency Mr. Lamothe Advocates for “Climate-Smart Zones” in The Caribbean, a project of The Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator which was formed in 2017, to strengthen the region’s readiness and response to disasters. It was a delight to highlight the incredible achievements of Haiti's 16th Prime Minister, His Excellency Laurent Lamothe, a dedicated civil servant who led and served with heart, integrity, and efficiency while in office, and in his daily initiatives as a citizen and a visionary entrepreneur. May the Heavens bless you and your loved ones forever.

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."

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.”

Dolly Vyas-Ahuja (vegan) - A True Voice for Ahimsa, Part 1 of 2

00:13:08

Dolly Vyas-Ahuja (vegan) - A True Voice for Ahimsa, Part 1 of 2

Today, we are privileged to feature a charismatic lady, Dolly Vyas-Ahuja, whose powerful example of unconditional love and tireless work for our precious animal friends in the last five years are worthy of our high esteem and accolades. Dolly moved with her family to the USA as a one-year-old. Although her family had traditionally been vegetarian, she was allowed to adopt a non-vegetarian diet. One day in April 2014, however, she came across a speech online known as “The Greatest Speech Ever” by renowned animal freedom fighter Gary Yourofsky. She was so shocked by the graphic depictions of what occurs behind closed doors on the factory farms of the world that she had an emotional breakdown that night, turning vegan from that day on. Becoming vegan awakened Dolly to the long spiritual heritage of her motherland, which is centered around the concept of ahimsa. Dolly upholds the ethics behind ahimsa in all forms, decrying not just meat and dairy, but also the use of honey, silk, eggs, and leather. She is dismayed that India, where cows are held sacred, is today one of the largest exporters of leather in the world. “A lot of people don't know, but India is one of the largest beef exporters in this world.” “We need to get this word ahimsa back, that originated in our country, because we've become so far away from it.” To achieve that goal, Dolly has been working tirelessly on a feature-length documentary entitled “The Land of Ahimsa,” which is scheduled for release in late 2020. “The Land of Ahimsa covers my journey of going vegan overnight, and going back to India to my motherland with two new sets of eyes to see – to see animal cruelty for the first time. And the movie covers a lot of amazing people here in the United States and in India.”

Kate Strong, Surpassing Barriers and Leaving Footsteps of Love, Part 2 of 2

Kate Strong, Surpassing Barriers and Leaving Footsteps of Love, Part 2 of 2

Although Kate lived a privileged life of comfort in her youth, her first sight of others in famine brought her to tears, and a deep-seated passion to serve and improve the quality of life for all beings was deeply instilled in her life values. Kate Strong has a befitting name for a motivation speaker and coach, but Kate explains that mental flexibility is also a strength, or even placing oneself in a situation that we haven’t experienced before and following our hearts. “Being strong isn’t being forceful. Being strong is actually a shift in consciousness. So, we need to step away from the win/lose model. We need to step away from telling, you know, forcefully doing things. I think the strongest thing we can do is pause, reflect and start listening to our heart. Everywhere in the world, we’re seeing more logical ways of being. We need to start feeling things, we need to go with the hearts leading, rather than our body being used as a vehicle to carry our all-important heads.” Supreme Master Ching Hai also agrees that even after enlightenment, one must make an effort to help the planet and all beings in every way possible, whether it be sharing good news or contributing in any positive way possible. “Sometimes, I go to a different restaurant outside, Thai restaurant, something special, I bought a lot, bring home to the staff. And every day I give some $100 Hong Kong Dollars to the cleaner in my room. I hide it inside the towel. So, whenever she takes the towel, ‘Ah!’ Surprised. I said, ‘Thank you for cleaning my room. God bless.’” “Make the best of your time when you’re out, smiling to people, strangers. ‘Hallo,’ ‘good day,’ whatever. Say hallo to your taxi driver, ask him if he is OK, wish him luck for his business. Shake hands with your doorman, your concierge, where you live, in your building. Say hallo, smile big. Bring him a piece of (vegan) chocolate or something. Make the best of your time. Spread love. Don’t be afraid. That’s what you should do.” Kate Strong takes these words to heart as she makes it a daily habit to lift people’s moods and bring a smile wherever she may be.

Kate Strong, Surpassing Barriers and Leaving Footsteps of Love, Part 1 of 2

“My name is Kate Strong. I help individuals and corporations to remove the glass ceiling off their potential, so they can live a thriving and sustainable life.” Vegan role model Kate Strong is a living example that anyone can be ordinary and extraordinary in the same breadth. Her down-to-earth attitude is coupled with high altitude goals and dreams. As a triathlete, mentor and entrepreneur, Kate takes on the mind set of “Use your talents to empower yourself. Be independent, then help others do the same.” Not only does Kate “talk the talk” but she also “walks the walk” with a gold medal finish at the “Weihai ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships” in 2014. “We need to really connect our minds. We need to connect our hearts, and do what we know is best for ourselves. If we all center ourselves, and if we all look after ourselves, ultimately, the world will be a better place because no one would be ill.” “I truly believe that we can all live an abundant life, whilst also leaving the world a better place, both environmentally, socially, and economically. So, by living my life that ‘every being thrives,’ it’s important for me to vocalize how to do that.” Kate Strong lives a highly active life, showing others through example that a plant-based wholefoods diet is healthy, tasty and available in every corner of the world. Kate’s encouraging support of staying in a positive frame of mind and living for the moment inspires many followers to let go of old habits and embrace a higher way of life. She teaches that we are the only ones who can change ourselves today, and not to wait for outside circumstances to change first. With this mindset, the outside circumstances change automatically.

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.”

Running for Good – ‘Queen of the Extreme’ Fiona Oakes (vegan), Part 4 of 5

00:16:20

Running for Good – ‘Queen of the Extreme’ Fiona Oakes (vegan), Part 4 of 5

With over 10 marathon wins and 3 world records under her belt, Fiona’s next major target is successfully completing the 4 Deserts Grand Slam – widely considered the toughest footrace series in the world. Within a calendar year, one must finish 4 of the world’s most challenging week-long, 155-mile (250-km) ultramarathons in some of the world’s most unforgiving terrain carrying one’s own food and supplies, a feat that only a small number of people have ever accomplished. Fiona has never had a coach and had to learn through trial and error how to train to push her limits without injuring her unstable right knee. She also recovers quickly from her strenuous workouts and sanctuary work with minimal rest. Fiona credits her lifelong vegan diet for her strength and resiliency. She eats only one simple, whole food, plant-based meal a day. “It’s very seasonal. I eat seasonal vegetables, which my father mainly grows, nuts, pulses, rice.” “One day will be my last day that I see, and all I am doing is trying to maximize my time on this Earth in order to do good, so when my last day does come, I know I’ve done all that I can, and that’s what I would encourage other people to do.” “I find the ultra-stage races do give me something more than physical endurance; they bring mental enhancement.” “We have to change the model in the way that we think, and to do that we have to learn for the others to have more; for it to be more fair distribution of resources along the planet, we have to accept and expect to have less and embrace that idea. And rather than looking at the things we aren’t having, look at the blessings we have all around us.”

Running for Good – ‘Queen of the Extreme’ Fiona Oakes (vegan), Part 3 of 5

On top of working the equivalent of two full-time jobs at the sanctuary, Fiona has built an elite running career in the last 20 years with the sole purpose of raising public awareness about the benefits of the vegan diet. And did we mention that she did it all on one kneecap? Indeed, it is a constant source of wonder to orthopedic surgeons how Fiona has been able to compete in marathons despite having lost a kneecap to surgery as a teenager. “I can do it on a vegan diet – there is no excuse in terms of it being prohibited to sporting excellence, even though I don’t consider myself particularly as a sportsperson or a runner. I can do it because it comes from the mind, it’s come from the belief, and I think that is what I would like to inspire in people.” One would be hard-pressed to find another super athlete with as much grit as Fiona Oakes and an equal amount of heart to match. These are qualities that have served her well in her advocacy for the animals. Her social media pages are filled with postings from people who were inspired by her to switch to a vegan lifestyle. While Fiona takes a non-confrontational approach in her animal rights activism, she would otherwise stop at nothing to promulgate the vegan ideal. One of her success stories is the Vegan Runners club which she co-founded in 2004. Members of the club proudly run with the words “Vegan Runners” emblazoned across their vests in races. While Fiona is a firm believer that actions speak louder than words, she is a highly sought-after public speaker, appearing regularly at VegFests and special events around the world, as well as on podcasts and national TV shows.

Running for Good – ‘Queen of the Extreme’ Fiona Oakes (vegan), Part 2 of 5

Today, we will continue our tribute to British endurance runner Fiona Oakes for her extraordinary accomplishments as an athlete and an animal rights advocate. For over two decades, Fiona has devoted her life to rescuing animals and promoting the benevolent vegan lifestyle. She cares for over 600 rescue animals at her animal sanctuary, Tower Hill Stables Sanctuary in Essex, England. Despite the 15-hour workdays and exhausting labor the sanctuary entails, she still finds the time and energy to maintain a strenuous regimen of training runs needed to compete on the world stage. “It is all done for the animals. My running I do to promote veganism, the sanctuary I do to nurture animals. And I’ve been vegan since I was six years old – completely self-inspired decision; my parents weren’t (vegan) at that time. So, my whole life has been pretty much dedicated to helping animals in some shape or form.” “And there’s so much you can learn from animals. Animals are a great leveler and a great teacher if you can listen to their message.” “With regards to the running, I run 9 times a week, about 100 miles (161 km) a week. That is really, really, tough to fit in at the level I am doing.” Thankfully, Fiona has help from some family members and a few volunteers. Two pillars of strength in her life are her mother, Meg and her life-partner, Martin. Fiona is also concerned about the disproportionately high environmental cost of animal-based food relative to plant-based food. In a recent Facebook posting on January 7, 2020, she wrote: “I quote Joseph Poore of Oxford University, ‘A vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth, not just greenhouse gasses, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use and water use.’”

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!”

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

00:16:10

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.”

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.”

The Goldman Family - "Eat the Change You Wish to See," Part 2 of 2

Having gained valuable experience working at Beyond Meat, Jonah saw the opportunity to begin a new vegan fast food restaurant concept, and together with the family, they conceptualized PLNT Burger. "We want to be a business for 'good.' We want to create a culture of designing businesses that benefit people, that benefit animals and the environment." "And what our mission is at PLNT Burger is to help people transition towards a more plant-based diet, to create a more just and equitable plentiful food system for all, and a healthier planet for future generations." The first PLNT Burger outlet opened in 2019. PLNT Burger is positioned as a “casual-fast food restaurant,” featuring vegan burgers with Beyond Meat vegan burger patties, as well as their own unique creations. Four stores were opened in the first nine-months of operations, riding on the power of Whole Foods Market as a strategic partner location. PLNT Burger keeps all the dishes very affordable to the masses, and has been receiving tons of positive public responses and appraisals. As a young entrepreneur, Jonah shares his strong beliefs and urges the next generation and society as a whole to act now and be the change we wish to see at this urgent time for our planet. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present the Goldman family, founders of Eat the Change and PLNT Burger, the Shining World Compassion Award, with all love, respect, and best wishes for your continued success. May your noble path be paved with God's immense blessings and grace.”

Victoria Featherstone Pearce (vegan) and K-9 Angels, Part 2 of 2

Victoria Featherstone Pearce (vegan) and K-9 Angels, Part 2 of 2

In the first episode, Ms. Pearce shared with us about K-9 Angels’ re-homing project for their rescued dogs. Today, she will tell us about another of their important projects that allows for more canine lives to be saved from suffering. “I think in the beginning of the charity and like most people, when you see a dog in distress, you just want to pick them all up and get them into homes. But as you go along you start thinking with your head rather than with your heart, and you realize that if you really want to make a huge impact in the lives of dogs, the best thing you can do is sterilize them all. I’ve seen it firsthand, that puppies have been born on the streets, to die on the streets at a very, very young age.” “I believe for one un-spayed dog, they can have up to 67,000 puppies in six years. So that means their puppies and their puppies and their puppies, if they carried on having babies, would have up to 67,000 puppies in six years. So, you can imagine, just by spaying one dog, you are potentially saving so many dogs from being born on the streets.” To contribute even more with the fundraising, Ms. Pearce has taken on many challenges herself including cycling hundreds of miles, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro twice and wing walking on a bi-plane. Despite all the challenges she has to go through to alleviate the suffering of our loving, cherished canine friends, she is delighted to do so. In addition to their hands-on work, K-9 Angels is involved in activities that bring awareness and education to others. As a leader in dog welfare, it also attends the UK Parliament. “K-9 Angels have been attending Parliament now for the last, I think, six years. Now mainly, we’ve been supporting, a campaign called Lucy’s Law and Pup Aid, and it’s to stop the sale of third-party puppies being sold. We have been attending many meetings to have a law, which is now in place called ‘Lucy’s Law.’ So, now people can’t sell puppies that are third party sales.” “Yeah, I think Lucy’s law is probably the biggest success that we’ve been involved in.” Ms. Pearce reminds us how self-fulfilling it is to share love and compassion with others, including our animal companions. “My message would be that, I just feel that when we give to people, or give to others, or give to animals, we are giving to ourselves. And I think the more you are nicer to other people, and you spread love and you spread happiness, it all comes back to you.”

The Goldman Family - "Eat the Change You Wish to See," Part 1 of 2

The Goldman Family - "Eat the Change You Wish to See," Part 1 of 2

Today, we are honored to share with you the story of a very special family, husband and wife team, Mr. Seth Goldman and Ms. Julie Farkas, together with their eldest son Jonah Goldman, who are changing the world with their golden hearts and determined actions to promote a sustainable, vegan and equitable world for all. 'Eat the change you wish to see in the world' – a witty play on words by Jonah on the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi's “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” At the height of success of Honest Tea, in 2012, one day, his wife Julie commented to him on the concept and plans of the plant-based food company – Beyond Meat. Seth quickly realized that such a company will have a far-reaching and globally significant impact on reducing the exaggerated reliance on animal agriculture and also protect the environment. “And what I found, is people don't have an innate need to kill animals; that's not an imperative, but survival and nutrition are. So, if we can create plant-based alternatives that taste as good, then we see a very good response. What’s so exciting to see consumers are choosing this approach. So I’m excited to see it’s happening. And when you have the consumers on your side, good things happen.” As of 2020, in less than eight years, since its products launched in the consumer market, Beyond Meat has become a worldwide phenomenon, now reaching around the globe and available in over 50 international markets, with over 27,000 distribution points, including now being offered in Starbucks chains in certain cities of China. The power of this social action has been powerfully evident during the lockdown situation in the USA, in response to the COVID-19, where a Bloomberg article reported that sales of plant-based meat substitutes increased 264% compared to before the lockdowns, an indicator that more Americans are concerned about the effects of their food choices towards the planet and their own health. Riding on the success of both Honest Tea and Beyond Meat, Seth and his family began discussing how they could create even more positive impact, on an even larger scale by including education as well as products. Together with Jonah, the planetary activist in the family, they decided to start a new venture, Eat the Change. Eat the Change's mission is to create a platform to deal with climate change and environmental destruction through the most powerful and immediately implementable change an individual can make – dietary change.

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

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.”
