Farmhouse Garden Animal Home: From Slaughter to Sanctuary, Part 3 of 3

When Edith and Mike first changed from operating a beef operation to running an animal sanctuary, they knew they would face many challenges. But they also knew deep in their hearts that it was the right thing to do. "I think for him (Mike), once he made the decision that he didn’t want to slaughter the animals anymore, it was just, 'That’s it.' He couldn’t do it anymore. We knew we were going to face some backlash, and we knew it was going to be difficult. But you just have to push through it because you know it’s the right thing to do. Yeah, he (Mike) definitely is really brave and compassionate. For me, ethically I know and spiritually that it’s the right thing to do. You feel more in line with your values in terms of the way that you live. I can’t imagine sitting down for dinner and having an animal on my plate. It just feels so wrong to me now. And I think once you make that connection, it’s hard to continue living an ethically and spiritually fulfilled life while you’re also eating animals." Many people are deeply grateful to Mike and Edith for sparing the lives of the innocent cows, and for founding an animal sanctuary where they can live. In fact, as soon as the sanctuary was created, volunteers offered to help. The story behind Farmhouse Garden Animal Home has touched the hearts of many, including non-vegans. And the sanctuary has received considerable media coverage. "It feels amazing to look at the animals and know that they’re safe and they’ll always be cared for. It’s such a fulfilling feeling knowing that I was a part of something that I think has inspired a lot of people and has helped so many animals. So I’m really happy with how far we’ve come and I’m proud of all the work that we’ve done. It’s a good feeling." Mike, Edith, and all the others involved with Farmhouse Garden Animal Home, we applaud your courage and determination to do what you feel is right. May you be blessed with good health, long lives and continued success.

Ecotourism: The Sustainable Way to Travel, Part 2 of 3

Our special guest on today’s program, Sebastian Guttman, is an environmentalist and vegan athlete from Germany who has chosen to use a zero-emissions form of travel with his selfmade bamboo bicycle. A champion of sustainable travel, Mr. Guttman has traveled to approximately 30 countries over the past two-and-a-half years, and plans to pause his bicycle tour during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ecotourism: The Sustainable Way to Travel, Part 1 of 3

In 2019, a record number of people traveled internationally, 1.5 billion, to be exact. However, conventional mass travel has been shown to be unsustainable and actually has many hidden, deeply intertwined costs for both tourist destinations and our planet. The good news is that over the past decade trends in travel have been changing considerably. As the world becomes more aware of the threats that human-induced climate change poses to people, our planet, and our future; ways to reduce the carbon footprint of activities such as mass tourism are being sought. What can we do about our recreational travel habits? The answer is ecotourism. Ecotourism is a way of travelling that minimizes the environmental impact of visiting tourist destinations, while respecting the local culture and people. The practice allows host countries to benefit and future generations to enjoy these beautiful areas as much as we do. Now let’s find out what researchers from Purdue University in Indiana, USA have to say about this new trend. "Heritage and culture and its protection are very important parts of sustainability. They are very vulnerable to the negative effects of tourism, which is why we need to ensure that we have the correct policies in place to ensure its protection for future generations." "I study community-based tourism and that is a form of tourism that is being operated by a community, usually in rural areas, specifically in rural areas in Indonesia for my research. I think identifying the resources that they have is really important and how they can use that to show their culture, and then, once they’ve identified those things, then the tourism operation can be initiated." "Sustainable tourism is about looking after people’s economic well-being, it’s about looking after their heritage and their culture, and it’s also about looking after the environment so that we can keep these three things working together for the benefit of the communities." Many thanks, Purdue University students, for sharing your knowledge about eco-tourism. May your research continue to touch the lives of all the planet’s inhabitants.

Ecotourism: The Sustainable Way to Travel, Part 3 of 3

Mr. Guttman describes how he was able to achieve his dreams by incorporating minimalism into his life, and how ecofriendly travel is attainable by the ordinary person. "You know, now I just have my bicycle, a few bags, and it's my whole life. I’m traveling on my own money. Some ask how I get the money to do it. Some say you have to have a lot of money. Or you won the lottery. Or you have to be rich to be able to do it. That's not true. I travel on US$12 a day and you can do your math how much it costs in a month or a year. What I spend in one year is the same as some people spend in two weeks on a holiday. So, you have to remember that." Are you looking to reduce your emissions in the area of lodging? Try camping. Homestays are another great option to help locals earn income while offering the traveler accommodations that are affordable. If that’s not available, stay at a smaller, independent, locally owned, and most importantly, environmentally conscious place; you don’t always have to stay at a big chain hotel. With a little research you can even find a relaxing hotel or resort that puts those core values into practice – like a vegan hotel. No matter where you stay, conserve energy and resources as you would at home, and bring your own reusable water bottle, straw, and utensils to reduce waste. "When you're thinking about ecotourism, I would highly, highly suggest for everyone travel slowly and less places, and coming together with locals on the same level, not to be arrogant thinking I'm rich and I want you to do this and that for me, no. Come and meet local people on the same level, on the same base. Traveling slowly, respect people and you get a good time. But it would be much better if we’re using less planes and less cars. Just travel on public transports or using your own power moving around as eco-tourists, because otherwise we are ruining our world. And I want to invite everyone to go vegan because I think it's really important to go vegan and eat less meat because we have to save our world and also to be grateful and thankful for your own body and it's your own strength and your own health. Remember that, it’s really important to what you eat, and I will say just be vegan, go green and save the planet!"

Extreme Weather: The Latest Global Climate Disasters, Part 1 of 2

This year in Africa, more than 1.21 million people in 12 different countries were affected by heavy rainfall and flooding. The following is a summary of the floods’ consequences in Africa between June and October 2020. Floods in Democratic Republic of Congo had resulted in at least 15 fatalities and thousands of people were affected. Floods in Tunisia, Ghana, Uganda and Burkina Faso had caused at least 15 fatalities and thousands had been affected. Floods in Sudan, South Sudan, Benin, Chad and Nigeria had resulted in at least 421 fatalities and over one million were affected. Floods in Ethiopia and Niger had caused at least 68 fatalities and over 600,000 people were affected. Floods in Somalia had caused at least 6 fatalities and over 150,000 people were affected. Meanwhile, in California, USA massive wildfires have raged across the state since August, being responsible for 31 deaths, destroying more than 8,687 structures, and driving thousands of people from their homes. By mid-September 2020, the damage caused by the wildfires had become the worst in the state’s history, with an estimated economic toll of more than US$20 billion. Supreme Master Ching Hai often speaks about the many dangers arising from climate change and reminds us about the fastest and easiest way to halt it. “I think people should see these disasters as a warning. It’s a sign of warning, telling us, ‘Wake up! Wake up! Wake up quickly!’”“We should choose the nobler and more virtuous path. We should look for enlightenment. It’s because only when we are enlightened can we use our inner almighty power. This almighty power is the so-called God, or Buddha Nature. Only this almighty power can direct us to the right way which will lead us further and further away from these disasters and all the suffering.” “Second, we have to protect other people’s lives. We have to protect other people’s lives and other animals’ lives so that we can protect the lives of ourselves, our relatives and friends. If we truly seek enlightenment and choose the noble and virtuous way of life, and walk in this direction, all natural disasters will disappear. And we will find Heaven on Earth.”
