From the Sacred Texts of Hòa Hảo Buddhism: "The Dead Cannot Eat" and "Looking for the Buddha"

From the Sacred Texts of Hòa Hảo Buddhism: "The Dead Cannot Eat" and "Looking for the Buddha"

Hòa Hảo Buddhism is a religion based on the teachings of the Buddha. It was founded by Prophet Huỳnh Phú Sổ in 1939. It is named after the Hòa Hảo village where it was established in Châu Đốc Province of Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam. The two words “Hòa Hảo” imply harmony and goodness. Today we present excerpts of the teachings of Prophet Huỳnh Phú Sổ. “THE DEAD CANNOT EAT” “After that, he recited a poem titled "Be Filial" and advised everyone to make offerings with vegan food: Repay the ancestors’ favor the Buddhist way, by offering vegan food to your deceased parents. That is the pure and benevolent practice and their souls will be light and liberated.” “LOOKING FOR THE BUDDHA” “One day, my father appeared in my dream and scolded me: ‘A living Buddha is here on Earth already, and you still don't practice spiritually? Let me tell you. You keep chasing after fame and gain, later if you suffer, don't complain, and it will be too late to regret. This is the final age. If you don't practice spiritually, you will regress into a suffering realm forever.’”

ఎగువ ప్రపంచానికి ఆరోహణ: " ఆ రిపబ్లిక్" యొక్క పుస్తకం VII నుండి సారాంశం ప్లేటో చే (శాఖాహారి), 2 యొక్క 1 వ భాగం

ఎగువ ప్రపంచానికి ఆరోహణ: " ఆ రిపబ్లిక్" యొక్క పుస్తకం VII నుండి సారాంశం ప్లేటో చే (శాఖాహారి), 2 యొక్క 1 వ భాగం

The Venerated Socrates was born in Athens, Greece circa 470 BC. Many people consider Him to be the father of Western philosophy. Today we’ll read an excerpt from Book Vll of “The Republic,” in which the Venerated Socrates and Glaucon converse on the subject of transitioning from darkness to an upper world of light and reason. This is Plato’s well-known allegory of the cave, describing how the philosopher is like a prisoner who, once freed, would require a new understanding of reality. “My opinion is that in the world of knowledge the idea of good appears last of all, and is seen only with an effort; and, when seen, is also inferred to be the universal author of all things beautiful and right, parent of light and of the Lord of light in this visible world, and the immediate source of reason and truth in the intellectual; and that this is the power upon which he who would act rationally either in public or private life must have his eye fixed. Moreover, I said, you must not wonder that those who attain to this beatific vision are unwilling to descend to human affairs; for their souls are ever hastening into the upper world where they desire to dwell.”

The Inner Path back to the Source: Selections from Dadu Dayal (vegetarian): The Compassionate Mystic, Part 2 of 2

Devote yourself to God, O mind. Just as birds come to perch in a tree for the night, So is all this marker spread out for a while, All will then go their own way. None is your kith or companion; Lose not your source, O mind. Don’t get lost by looking at worldly things; They are all flowers of the silk-cotton tree. The body is not yours, wealth is not yours, Why are you absorbed in them? Why do you sleep in comfort without God? Why not wake up and see? Cautions Dadu. Repeat the Name of God and forget Him not, Fulfil the purpose of your birth by practicing concentration. Be steadfast in the remembrance of God, Practice meditation with love And sing the glory of God. The human body is the door to salvation. Repeat the name of God, the Creator of the universe. So long as a dreadful disease has not come, So long as death has not consumed your body, So long as the Sound has not been withdrawn, Render service to the Lord.

The Songs of Kabir (vegetarian): Selections from 1 to 26, Part 2 of 2

The Songs of Kabir (vegetarian): Selections from 1 to 26, Part 2 of 2

Music is all around it, and there the heart partakes of the joy of the Infinite Sea. Kabir says: “Dive thou into that Ocean of sweetness: thus let all errors of life and of death flee away.” Behold how the thirst of the five senses is quenched there! And the three forms of misery are no more! Kabir says: “It is the sport of the Unattainable One: look within, and behold how the moon-beams of that Hidden One shine in you.” There falls the rhythmic beat of life and death: Rapture wells forth, and all space is radiant with light. There the Unstruck Music is sounded; it is the music of the love of the three worlds. There millions of lamps of sun and of moon are burning; There the drum beats; and the lover swings in play. There love-songs resound, and light rains in showers; and the worshipper is entranced in the taste of the heavenly nectar. Look upon life and death; there is no separation between them, The right hand and the left hand are one and the same.

Unity in Diversity through the Vegan Diet: Interview with Father Anthony Chang Sang Loy (vegan), Part 1 of 3

00:15:33

Unity in Diversity through the Vegan Diet: Interview with Father Anthony Chang Sang Loy (vegan), Part 1 of 3

The Reverend Father Anthony Chang Sang Loy is a Catholic priest residing in Hong Kong, who is well known for his numerous environmentally conscious undertakings through various groups and organizations. The Reverend is a compassionate vegan, believing that the peaceful plant-based diet has a major role in protecting the planet’s ecosystem and environment. He is the founder and chairman of the Catholic Messengers of Green Consciousness and the Hong Kong Catholic Vegetarian Association, organizations that aspire to bring about the essential peace among all of God’s creations, while the power to do so is still in our hands. Let us now meet the Reverend Father Anthony Chang and learn more about his interesting journey of faith and his pure impressions of the priesthood. “The idea of becoming a priest emerged when I got in touch with the priests. Observing them very much devoted to their work, I felt it was very good. At the same time, they were focused on God, their faith and Jesus Christ, and I also loved that. During that period, I had a deeper understanding of Christ, as He said that He had come to serve, and not to be served. He was willing to care about people and serve people, which fascinated me. So, I decided to become a priest and to work in this way.” “When I was a child, I already knew that God is everywhere; I liked to look at the sky and the sea. Looking at the sky and the sea, I felt God’s presence within. That was the way how I felt God; He is really everywhere. This awareness is still with me after I became a priest.” “If you pay attention to the vitality of the nature and the relationship among the animals, they reveal God’s love and that can be learnt from the animals. You can learn a lot in this way, both in mental, spiritual and knowledge aspects.” “‘If you want to heal quickly, you have to quit eating any meat.’ I quit eating any meat quickly and completely, as it was painful, and I finally understood why I had to do this. I read books and knew it was the best way to eat: quit eating all meat and be a vegan.”

Signs of Agni Yoga: Selection from Infinity I by Spiritual Messengers Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 1 of 2

Signs of Agni Yoga: Selection from Infinity I by Spiritual Messengers Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 1 of 2

The esteemed mystical and philosophical writers Nicholas Roerich and his wife Helena Roerich are two of the most influential spiritual thought leaders from Russia. They are recognized for founding a doctrine called Agni Yoga, also known as Living Ethics. Believed to be a synthesis of all yogas (spiritual disciplines), Agni Yoga focuses on the daily practice of Love, Beauty, and noble Action. Today we’ll read an excerpt from the book “Infinity I” which is part of the Agni Yoga volumes. “Is it worthwhile to speak of Infinity if it is unattainable? But it does exist; and everything great, even if invisible, compels us to think about the ways to it. Thus, even now let us ponder about the ways into Infinity; for it exists, and it is terrifying if it is not cognized. Humanity is distressed because of lost currents, but its explanations of the shiftings on Earth and of the manifestations of cosmic perturbations are geological. Despite these explanations, the factual evidence, the manifestations of fiery, subterranean, and supermundane currents, reveal to the world the concept of Infinity. When we renounce ignorance, we shall understand the entire beauty of Infinity!”

How to Attain Knowledge of the Higher Worlds by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 2 of 3 (old WOW 864 865)

00:12:45

How to Attain Knowledge of the Higher Worlds by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 2 of 3 (old WOW 864 865)

An eloquent public speaker and gifted writer, he gave over 6,000 lectures in his lifetime and gained recognition as a literary critic. His writings cover a wide range of subjects, and he published more than 25 books, including “Mysticism at the Dawn of the Modern Age,” “The Way of Initiation,” and “Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path: A Philosophy of Freedom.” “If we do not develop within ourselves this deeply-rooted feeling that there is something higher than ourselves, we shall never find enough strength to evolve to something higher. The Initiate has only acquired the power of lifting his intellect to the heights of knowledge by guiding his heart into the depths of veneration and devotion. The heights of the Spirit can only be reached by passing through the portals of humility. Man can certainly have the right to gaze upon the Reality, but he must first earn this right. You can only acquire right knowledge when you are ready to esteem it. There are laws in the spiritual life, as in the physical life.”

Selections from "The Pathway of Life" by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 2, The Ills of Life, Part 1 of 2

“Everyone thinks of changing the world but no one thinks of changing himself.” This insightful saying by Leo Tolstoy is a good reminder for all of us to reflect inward. Yearning for more than success, fame, and wealth, Leo Tolstoy eventually established himself as a moral philosopher and spiritual leader during the last 30 years of his life. We would like to share an insightful excerpt from Volume Ⅱ of "The Pathway of Life," a collection of Tolstoy's philosophies on religion, life, death and more. The Ills of Life "All that which infringes upon the happiness of our bodily life we call ills. And yet the whole of our life is a gradual process of delivering our soul from that which constitutes the happiness of our body. Therefore, for him who comprehends life as it really is there are no ills." Ⅰ.That Which We Call Suffering is a Necessary. Ⅱ.Sufferings Stimulate Man's Spiritual Life.

The Inner Path back to the Source: Selections from Dadu Dayal (vegetarian): The Compassionate Mystic, Part 1 of 2

One such great spiritual teacher is Sant (Saint) Dadu Dayal from the same tradition as Saint Kabir. He lived during the 16th century. “Dadu” means brother and“Dayal”is “the Compassionate One.” Instead, he concentrated on Japa (repetition of Divine Names) as well as remembrance of the original divine source and his inner connection and whole-hearted devotion to God. The group of Dadu's followers are known as the Dadu Panth and refrain from alcohol and uphold vegetarianism. “The world is a river of suffering, And God is the Ocean of Bliss. Forsake the worthless and go To the Ocean of Bliss, says Dadu. Having no desire for name or fame, let one serve the Lord. Abandoning everything else, take the true Name alone, says Dadu. Kal (time) is a fabrication; never go near him. So long as the heart is set on the Lord, life in this world is well lived. Living without the Lord is useless, O Dadu. If the Lord is obtained, all is obtained. Meeting with the Lord means meeting with all. If the Lord is there, all is there, Otherwise all is naught.”

Selections from “Aphorisms II” – A Book by Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan), Part 2 of 2

“Get more enlightened and then you’ll be more loving. That’s the purpose of enlightenment. Enlightenment makes us more loving, more tolerant and more understanding. That’s the best outcome of spiritual cultivation.” “It’s not meditation that protects you. It’s the awakening of your own power within that protects you. It’s knowing that you’re God that protects you.” “The more people know God, the more people contact God directly and become happier, the more peaceful the world will be, the less war there will be, and the more we can bring Heaven onto Earth.” “Actually, everything takes care of itself in time. But meanwhile, we should try our best to make life better and always avoid violence. That’s the lesson of all the Shakyamuni Buddha stories – we have to surrender to God’s will and be tolerant and patient. When the time comes, everything will change.”

Holy Laws on Protecting the Animals - Selection from “In Front of the Blind" by Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar (vegan), Part 1 of 2

00:13:47

Holy Laws on Protecting the Animals - Selection from “In Front of the Blind" by Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar (vegan), Part 1 of 2

The respected Asa Keisar is an Israeli religious scholar who’s on a mission of spreading veganism all across Israel and the world. Asa Keisar is a frequent lecture in universities, elementary and high schools, and yeshivot (Jewish educational religious institutions) throughout Israel. His speeches feature statements from the Holy Torah about the incorrectness of consuming animal products, especially in our modern world. Mr. Keisar is also the author of an important Jewish guide, “In Front of the Blind,” or “Velifnei Iver Hashalem.” Through straightforward holy laws, the selection clearly shows how humans must treat all animals, namely with care and mercy. “One must also have mercy upon animals because it is forbidden to cause undue pain or anguish to an animal. The attribute of mercy is the sign of the children of Abraham, the seed of Israel. As it is written, ‘He will give you mercy, be merciful and multiply you.’” “Rabbi Joseph Albo: ‘The consumption of flesh from living creatures gives birth to spiritual corpulence, murkiness and inflexibility of the soul...’” “Metzudat David: ‘The righteous person pays attention even to the needs of their animal to fulfill its craving - because God greatly values mercy.’”

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 3 of 4 - The Law of Karmic Retribution

00:15:32

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 3 of 4 - The Law of Karmic Retribution

Welcome to Part Three – The Law of Karmic Retribution. Different religions may refer differently to karmic retribution, or cause and effect, but it is understood as a concept by all. We have heard of the sayings, “What goes around, comes around,” and “Like attracts like.” Positive actions bring favorable effects, while negative yields unfavorable results, also known as karmic retribution. While the principles of Divine Love and Grace are higher, and may be mercifully applied in the physical realms, karmic retribution is a law that cannot be ignored. The Holy Bible clearly teaches the concept of karma in the often-quoted verse, “As you sow, so shall you reap.” The verse continues, “The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Even in ancient China thousands of years ago, people understood the wisdom of the enlightened Master Confucius, “Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.” Buddhism Surangama Sutra: “Ananda, if living beings in the six worlds of existence cease to kill, they will not be subject to the continual round of births and deaths… How then can those who practice great compassion feed on the flesh and blood of living beings?” Sikhism Sri Guru Granth Sahib: “The world eats dead carcasses, living by neglect and greed. Like a goblin, or a beast, they kill and eat the forbidden carcasses of meat. So control your urges, or else you will be seized by the Lord, and thrown into the tortures of hell.” Jainism Bhagavati Aradhana: “To kill any living being amounts to killing oneself. Compassion to others is compassion to one’s own self. Therefore one should avoid violence like poison and thorns (that cause pain).” Cao Đài-ism The Collection of Divine Messages: “If you kill any living being, you shall be punished; no one knows whether a living being may have been an Immortal or a Buddha reincarnating to Earth. As I have said, all life is Me. To destroy life is to attempt to destroy Me. And it is not easy to destroy Me. Teach that to human beings.” In an effort to halt the factory farms and meat-processing plants that kill billions of animals every year, Supreme Master Ching Hai has been speaking out in urgent messages for some time. She asks that all meat-related businesses cease their operations and switch to a more wholesome living. On February 22, 2020, Supreme Master Ching Hai specifically addressed livestock industry owners as well as the fishing, egg, milk, fur, laboratory testing, cosmetics and leather industries.

00:12:03

From Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Book 2, Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue with “Book 2” from Marcus Aurelius’ “Meditations.” While emphasizing the ephemeral nature of all things, the wise emperor highlights the importance of focusing on one’s power within, and respecting the Divine reality of the present. “You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think. If the gods exist, then to abandon human beings is not frightening; the gods would never subject you to harm.” “And how man grasps God, with what part of himself he does so, and how that part is conditioned when he does. Nothing is more pathetic than people who run around in circles, ‘delving into the things that lie beneath’ and conducting investigations into the souls of the people around them, never realizing that all you have to do is to be attentive to the power inside you and worship it sincerely.” “To worship it is to keep it from being muddied with turmoil and becoming aimless and dissatisfied with nature - divine and human. What is divine deserves our respect because it is good; what is human deserves our affection because it is like us. And our pity too, sometimes, for its inability to tell good from bad - as terrible a blindness as the kind that can’t tell white from black.”

Holy Laws on Protecting the Animals - Selection from “In Front of the Blind" by Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar (vegan), Part 2 of 2

Today, we’ll learn more from Mr. Keisar’s book “In Front of the Blind,” or “Velifnei Iver Hashalem.” “Rabbi Avraham Saba: ‘Based on the complete and whole view, kindness of God who is good to all of His creations; a person should realize that the purpose of the milk from an animal mother’s breast is to nourish her baby and not for the individual to do as they please.’” “Maimonides states, ‘There is no distinction between anguish experienced by a human and anguish experienced by animals; this is because the love and yearning of a mother for its offspring is not dependent upon intelligence, rather it is the inherent nature found in most creatures as it is found in man.’” “Harav Yitzchak Habanstreit: ‘One should know, aside for the fact that it is inappropriate for man to eat meat with regard to tradition, ethics, religion and wisdom; it is also unnatural because man is unfit to eat meat as is proven by the analysis of a person’s organs.’” “But this is not the case with the natural tendency towards vegetables and fruit of the tree and the like. These produce strong natural feelings and call to us in a loving way: ‘Wondrous to behold and good to eat.’ A great desire awakens in their midst to taste the fruits and eat their fresh as they were created. Is this not enough proof that these are the natural foods for a person?”

Tuning in to the Higher Frequency of Spiritual Wisdom: An Interview with Mr. James Bean (vegan), Part 1 of 5

Mr. James Bean of Maine USA launched spiritual Awakening Radio in September 1988 out of his pure love of the great Masters and Their teachings. The focus of Mr. Bean’s programs is to share, through radio and other media, a deeper understanding of spirituality for a more peaceful planet. He is also a mystic explorer of the inner Heavenly Light and Sound of God, and a devotee of the spiritual path from India known as Sant Mat. “Spiritual Awakening Radio was an idea that I had many years ago. I started collecting all of these wonderful writings of spiritual Masters: mystic poetry, Kabir, Guru Nanak, Dadu Dayal, all of these great Saints of the ages. And I just wanted to be able to share them on the radio.” “And I also collect books, I collect writings of Masters; it’s a way to travel time, to collect the poetry of Kabir, or some of these great Saints of the ages, Mahavira of Jainism, Buddha, Buddhist sutras, Gnostic Gospels, words of Masters and mystics. And so, I’ve just always been very fond of collecting those writings. And those provide the basis for many of my programs, that research that’s gone into the writings of all of these different saints. So, I just enjoy sharing that with other people that don’t have the time to sort through all of these writings, so, it’s a service I enjoy doing, to share this knowledge with other people out there.”

From The Essene Humane Gospel of Christ: The Salvation of the World – The Birth of Yeshua, Part 1 of 2

Faithful viewers, the Essene Humane Gospel is a reminder of the Godly virtues that we should live by if we are to walk the path of the Truth. God’s Arms are always opened for the sincere Truth-seekers. Today we’ll read selections from the beginning of this Gospel, in which we learn about the preparation of the coming of the great Essene Prophet John the Baptist and of the Worshipped Messiah, Lord Jesus Christ. “…Gabriel spoke further unto her, ‘O Mary, therefore also is that holy, which shall be born of thee, even Christ, the child of God, and His name on earth shall be called Yeshua, for it is He that shall save the people from bondage to sin, even all those repenting and obeying His Holy Laws. Therefore, O Mary, YE SHALL EAT NO ANIMAL FLESH, NOR DRINK STRONG DRINK, for the Holy Child shall be consecrated unto the All-Eternal from its mother’s womb, and NEITHER ANIMAL FLESH NOR STRONG DRINK SHALL HE EAT OR DRINK IN ANY FORM, nor shall ever a razor touch His head.’”

Selections from The Zen Poetry of Dōgen (vegetarian) – Verses from the Mountain of Eternal Peace: Part II, Chapter 3

Zen Buddhist Master Dōgen Zenji was the founder of the Sōtō school of Zen Buddhism in Japan, which promotes sitting meditation as the way to enlightenment. The Buddhist Master was one of the most remarkable Zen Masters in history and was also an outstanding poet. The book, "The Zen Poetry of Dōgen - Verses from the Mountain of Eternal Peace," is by Dōgen scholar Steven Heine. It is a complete translation of Dōgen’s collection of thirty-one-syllable Japanese poetry, or waka, plus a translation of a selection of the Master's Chinese verse, or kanshi. It offers a distinct and revealing insight into Master Dōgen’s unique style of Zen naturalist and aesthetic philosophy. "My companions Trekking The six realms - I recognize my father! There is my mother! Contemplating the clear moon Reflecting a mind as the open sky - Drawn by its beauty, I lose myself In the shadows it casts. Traveling the six realms, Seeking the primordial words Of the seven Buddhas of Nara, Which are ceaselessly Pervading all paths."

On Love: from Socrates’ Dialogue with Diotima of Mantinea in “Symposium” by Plato (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

00:11:23

On Love: from Socrates’ Dialogue with Diotima of Mantinea in “Symposium” by Plato (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

The Venerated Socrates was born in Athens, Greece circa 470 BC. Many people consider him to be the father of Western philosophy. Others think of Him as an insightful teacher and an enlightened Master. We will now read a selected part from Plato's well-known work “Symposium.” The text depicts a gathering of notable men during a banquet, where they exchange philosophical thoughts. In one of the dialogues, Socrates recollects his conversation with the seer and priestess Diotima about the idea and nature of love. In this dialogue with Diotima, where Love is referred to as a “great spirit,” we find the origin of the concept of Platonic love. “For God mingles not with man; but through Love all the communion and converse of God with man, whether awake or asleep, is carried on. The wisdom which understands this is spiritual. Now these spirits or intermediate powers are many and diverse, and one of them is Love.” “The truth of the matter is this: No god is a philosopher or seeker after wisdom, for he is wise already; nor does any man who is wise seek after wisdom. Neither do the ignorant seek after Wisdom. For herein is the evil of ignorance, that he who is neither good nor wise is nevertheless satisfied with himself: he has no desire for that of which he feels no want.”
