Italy embraces Humanitarian Corridor approach for entry of 500 refugees from Libya.
Italian Interior Minister, Her Excellency Luciana Lamorgese, announced the signing of an agreement to bring 500 migrants stranded in Libya to Italy. The announcement was made during a conference in Rome called “Governing Migration: The Best Practice of Humanitarian Corridors.” This initiative will involve the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and will be overseen by Rome’s Community of Sant'Egidio and the Waldensians. Her Excellency said, “Rights and responsibilities go hand in hand, and therefore work must be done not only to accommodate migrants but also to integrate them.” Italy is a Shining World Leadership Award for Public Health Protection recipient. What an embracing endeavor, Italy. May other countries follow your benevolent way in hosting and assisting migrants to rebuild their lives. We pray for love and peace to be everywhere so that the sufferings of all refugees and migrants are a thing of the past, in God’s immense grace.
Global warming substantially decreases oxygen levels in freshwater lakes.
New research led by scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the United States indicates that climate change and human activity are drivers behind decreasing oxygen amounts in freshwater lakes. The study looked at nearly 400 lakes in temperate areas worldwide and analyzed water temperature and oxygen saturation dating back to 1941. Since 1980, the oxygen levels have dipped an average of 5.5% at the surface and 18.6% in deep waters, a rate around 3-9 times faster than the oxygen decrease observed in the world’s oceans. The oxygen depletion endangers aquatic life and has a drastic impact on the surrounding ecosystem, as freshwater lakes support a high level of the planet’s biodiversity. Our appreciation, RPI scientists and all involved, for sounding the alarm about climate change through your work. May humans everywhere quickly adopt loving lifestyle changes that support our continued life on the planet, in Celestial oneness.

Australia financially encourages farmers to protect environment and stem climate change.
The Australian government is launching the world’s first online platform under the newly approved Agriculture Biodiversity Stewardship Package, which will allow farmers to receive and sell credits by engaging in carbon-storing activities and biodiversity services on their land, to support their livelihood. Credits can be earned via planting trees, restoring native habitat, measuring and maintaining carbon stored in their soil, and other good land management practices like preventing soil erosion and safeguarding waterways. These credits can then be sold to companies or individuals looking to offset their own emissions or invest in the environment. Australia is a recipient of five Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, and Shining World Leadership Awards for Protection and Good Governance; as well as a laureate of three Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, and Shining World Leadership Awards for Caring, Good Governance, Health Guardian and High Moral Value. Way to go, Australian government, on your forward-thinking plan to encourage your vast nation’s farmers to protect biodiversity and improve the soil. May your Agriculture Biodiversity Stewardship Package support native forests and habitats and create havens for our dear wildlife, in the guidance of the Providence.
Ancient human skull discovered in Harbin, China, possibly new species.
The skull of an ancient human, which was found in 1933 and donated to scientists in China in 2018, is thought to be a potential new species and perhaps our closest evolutionary relative. Named Homo Longi after the Dragon River in Heilongjiang province where the skull was found, he lived at least 146,000 years ago. Homo Longi has the biggest cranium of any known human ancestor at around 1,420 cubic centimeters, and larger brow ridges, bigger molar teeth and also larger, more angular-shaped eyes than modern day humans. Such exciting news, scientists in China, on the discovery of a possible long-lost human relative. May the knowledge gained from studying Homo Longi help us to feel a closer affinity with every human on the planet as we recognize our interconnectedness, in the love of the Buddha.
Celebrated Senegalese footballer builds hospital in home village.
World-famous professional football player Sadio Mané, who currently plays for Liverpool Football Club, funded the almost US$630,000 needed for the building of a new hospital in Bambali, Senegal, enabling the village to have its first-ever healthcare facility. This generous contribution was due to Mr. Mané’s memory of when he was only seven years old and losing his father to an illness because there was no hospital in the area. He said, “I wanted to build [a hospital] to give people hope.” So far, Mr. Mané has donated over US$1 million to help develop Bambali, including constructing a high school for nearly US$350,000. He also contributed more than US$57,000 to Senegalese health authorities to help them respond to the coronavirus in 2020. Thank you, Sadio Mané, for your generosity and kindness. May Bambali and surrounding villages always be able to access quality healthcare and education, in Allah’s grace.

One student eagerly raised her hand to answer.
“Not very long at all!”
And now we have a heartline from Đan in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam:
Dear Beloved Master, I was initiated by You when I was a high school student, about 30 years ago. After that afternoon, even though I didn’t have many inner experiences, my heart and mind were brightened up.
It was as if I entered into a real world, and I did not feel attached to anything on this Earth. I did not want to study anymore. I only wanted to be a monk to do God’s work.
However, I had to force myself to finish high school. I went to school, but I always thought about the Five Holy Names and Master. I kept looking for a way to escape from life to fulfill my ideal.
Then Master arranged for me to have a vegan restaurant for 10 years already. My life is now stable. Your disciple, Đan from Âu Lạc (Vietnam)
Considerate Đan, Thank you for writing. We are happy to know that you are serving delicious vegan food through your restaurant, helping people transition to a compassionate lifestyle as Heavens have intended. Your meaningful work is commendable!
Master has some caring words for you: “Devoted Đan, my thanks to you for your faith in the Divine and continuing diligently on the path of inner realization. You are doing your best in this way to uplift others through your vegan restaurant, and Heavens rejoice with countless other beings for your noble work which rescues precious lives. Please continue your mission with heart, mind, soul and more joyful determination. Thank you. May you and beautiful Âu Lạc (Vietnam) be blessed in Buddha’s eternal Light.”
