Sharing Songs in Quarantine, Part 2 of 2 - Raising Each Other Up

Sharing Songs in Quarantine, Part 2 of 2 - Raising Each Other Up

In today’s show, we will hear three uplifting songs performed by various groups during the recent precautionary lockdowns. The first song, written by acoustic folk duo MaMuse, is called “We Shall Be Known.” It is performed by the UU the Vote Virtual Choir at the “How We Thrive” live event. The event is an initiative by the Unitarian Universalist Association. Our next song, “For Such a Time as This,” written and performed by Marty Goetz and his daughter Misha, was inspired by the Bible story on the Jewish Queen, Esther. As a young girl, Esther was called upon to be a hero to save her people. Regarding the song, the father and daughter wrote the following: “In times of crisis and uncertainty, such as these, history has a way of turning ordinary people into extraordinary heroes. Every one of us has been called upon to make difficult and costly sacrifices. Still, there are those who have been on the frontlines in this battle against our invisible enemy – doctors, nurses, first responders, and the many people who have gone to work daily on our behalf, providing our essential needs. We are releasing this new song in honor of them.” Our last song today is called “Hope!” written by Alex Bevan and performed by the Echo Women’s Choir. Since the lockdown in September 2020, the choir members have been meeting and rehearsing on Zoom regularly, perfecting their performance virtually. They have done a fantastic job, as we are about to see.

The Soulful World Music Artist - Liron Man (vegan), Part 1 of 2

The Soulful World Music Artist - Liron Man (vegan), Part 1 of 2

The term “World Music” was coined in the early 1960s and refers to the type of music that embraces a wide range of styles associated with different cultures, ethnicities and traditions around the world. The musicians use conventional or unconventional instruments and often sing in different languages. In the past decade, one of the emerging artists in this category who has attracted much media attention and global audiences is Liron Man from Israel. A self-taught handpan player and a certified yoga instructor, Liron’s music is not constrained by set rules, but rather creative, spontaneous, meditative and spiritual. "So for me, I always loved playing music. But at the same time I like percussive playing with my hands, I also like very much melody and harmony to be able to tell a story through a melody, through some notes, musical notes. So when I saw the handpan, right away I fell in love with it. One, because of the sound of the handpan. It’s so, so beautiful and so inspiring. And two, I really liked the playability. And what I mean is that you play, you tap on the instrument with your hands, and at the same time that you tap, you get a rhythm, a melody, and harmony, and even overtones. It’s such a beautiful way to play music." Let’s now listen to the handpan performance by Liron accompanied by the guitarist, Simone Mor, and composed by Lumino. The piece is called “Qafila,” which means “caravan” in Arabic. Liron released an album titled “Solo Con Ellos” or “Only With Them” in Spain a few years ago. “Them” in the title refers to the angels that accompany us into this world, according to Liron. "Recording the album took me about nine months, recording and editing of the album. I went to four different countries to record the album, and recorded the album with 19 musicians from all around the world, and over 30 musical instruments in the album. So it was my own journey as a musician to kind of reach out to all the musicians that I met around the world." Now let’s listen to another beautiful piece called “Noya,” which means “The Beauty of God” in Hebrew, composed by Lumino, with the handpan by Liron and guitar by Simone.

The Soulful World Music Artist - Liron Man (vegan), Part 2 of 2

Aside from music, what are his other passions in life, and how in turn, do these affect his music? Let’s continue our interview with Liron to learn more. “I study TaoYoga, and also teach TaoYoga arts. It's very hard to say what TaoYoga has contributed to my music. But it's very easy for me to say what TaoYoga has contributed to my life. So, everything in my life is affected by TaoYoga. And by those meditation techniques and all those practices that we're doing, and I can say that, as far as music, even though I still play the music that I composed before I started practicing TaoYoga, it's still affecting not just the music itself, but the way I feel when I play, and also, I'm guessing probably what I project while I'm playing music, and how the audience or the listener might feel.” “This is also the message I would like to share with people through my music because this is what I do myself in my life and through music, and I hope that my music can also inspire people to do what they love and to be true to themselves and to do what they believe in. If it's music, or if it's anything else that they do, follow their heart and not let themselves be affected by external factors. Just really and truly listen and be aware of what their heart is asking from them in every possible moment.” Now let’s listen to the composition “Agam” by Liron dedicated to his first niece.He graciously explained how the vegan diet has benefited him and his life. “In my personal life, in my health, vegan diet helped me get rid of a lot of toxins. I can feel that my body has a better defense system, a defense mechanism. And my body is functioning better. So this is in the physical aspect. And also it affects the level of energy that I have. And the best thing that veganism brought to me in my life is my wife.” The couple also happily told us about their special wedding!

Traditonal Musical Instrument: Enchanting Mandolin, Part 2 of 2

21:28

Traditonal Musical Instrument: Enchanting Mandolin, Part 2 of 2

The exquisite sounds of the mandolin resonate back over a millennium, with recorded instances of mandolin music from the Medieval period (500-1400AD), up to the Renaissance (1400-1600), through the Baroque period (1600-1740AD) and onwards, to our current era. In Medieval times, the lute, a precursor to the modern mandolin, was widely played and appreciated. One branch of its evolution was the mandore, which arose in the Renaissance period and in turn, during the Baroque period, brought forth what we now call the mandolin.

The Songs, Compositions and Poetry of Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan), Part 1 of a Multi-part Series

The Songs, Compositions and Poetry of Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan), Part 1 of a Multi-part Series

From time immemorial, Enlightened Masters have descended to Earth to elevate and deliver sentient beings. They are vessels of the highest Blessings, which can be shared with anyone who has the good fortune to connect with Them in any way, as Supreme Master Ching Hai states: “The Master can use many different ways to attract, to stir within the sentient beings their nostalgia. Nostalgic feeling for their original Home. Therefore, one of the things that attract people most is music, you know that? Yes, or painting. These artistic things are very much near the higher dimension, near the expression of a higher dimension. So when many people see music or painting or artistic artifacts, they feel something, they feel touched. And from then, it stirs them, makes them come into contact with the Tao.” Today, we’re honored to share three songs with you. “Summertime when the living is easy Fishes are jumping and the cotton is high Your daddy is rich and your mama is pretty. So hush little baby, don't you cry.” The song “Lost Horizon” expresses this common dream of humanity. “Have you ever dreamed of a place Far away from it all Where the air you breathe is soft and clean Children play in fields of green Where the sound of guns Never pound your dream anymore. Have you ever dreamed of a place Far away from it all Where the winter winds will never blow And living things have room to grow Where the sound of the guns Never pound your dream anymore.” Let’s listen to “And I Love You So.” “And I love you so The people ask me how How I've lived till now I tell them I don't know I guess they understand How lonely life has been Till life begins again the day you took my hand. And, yet, I know how lonely life can be. The shadow follows me, And the night won't let me free. But I won't let evenings get me down now that you're around me. And you love me, too. Your thoughts are just for me You set my spirit free. And I'm happy that you do. The book of life is brief And once a page is read Another world is there That is my belief.”

Supporting Ukraine through the Power of Music

Supporting Ukraine through the Power of Music

Since Russia’s February 2022 invasion of Ukraine, which has caused untold suffering for this peace-loving nation, people worldwide have been voicing their support for the Ukrainians and condemning Russia’s unjust action while providing financial and material assistance whenever possible. From pop singers and rock stars to classical musicians, artists of all ages from Ukraine and other parts of the globe have used their talents in sending positive messages of support to Ukraine during this critical time of need.In early March, the seven-year-old Ukrainian girl Amelia Anisovych was caught on camera singing the popular Disney song “Let It Go” while sheltering in a Kyiv basement. Like an angel of hope, her presence and voice brought tears to the eyes of many. “The glory and freedom of Ukraine has not yet perished. Luck will still smile on us, brother-Ukrainians.”The song “World Support Ukraine (Russians Go Home)” performed by Ukrainian singer Diana Mess for Eurovision 2016 is gaining renewed interest. “Do not say, My war isn’t your war! ‘Cause tomorrow it might knock on your door. It’s not a game, it’s not naive fun, When children are facing the offenders’ guns. Russians go home!”We pray that through the world’s united efforts and the blessings of God, darkness will soon be expelled from Ukraine, and the people can resume their everyday lives, rebuild their country, and look forward to a better tomorrow. We would like to conclude our show with the song “Hello, Lost Eyes” composed by musician Trúc Hồ and dedicated to Ukraine on behalf of the overseas Vietnamese (Aulacese) people. “Hello, lost eyes, Going through the darkest time of your life, Despite stars falling from the sky. Hello, lost eyes, Looking for someplace safe to call home. Hello, lost eyes, Gazing at the stars up high, Wondering why the sun is not shining, Why the moon is not bright. Only haze in the sky. Please don’t be scared, don’t cry. There is heaven and earth in your eyes. You are on your own, but not alone. Our hearts and thoughts are with you. Dark skies turn blue.”

Vincent van Gogh: Infusing Life and Heart into Each Brushstroke, Part 1 of 3

15:03

Vincent van Gogh: Infusing Life and Heart into Each Brushstroke, Part 1 of 3

Vincent van Gogh is one of the most prominent Post-Impressionist painters and is generally regarded as the greatest Dutch painter since Rembrandt van Rijn. After deciding to be an artist at the age of twenty-seven, he produced nearly 900 paintings and more than 1,000 works on paper in the short ten-year span of his artistic career. Through his arbitrary use of color, emphatic, unrestrained brushstrokes and contoured forms, along with the dynamic relationships expressed among his subjects, his emotions, and the viewers’ reactions, van Gogh had an enormous influence on Fauvism, Expressionism, and Modernism and continues to inspire artists up to the present day. His works have also been highly sought after by art collectors since the latter half of the 20th century, and paintings such as “Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers,” “Irises,” and “Portrait of Dr. Gachet” have continually been setting price records at auctions. Yet sadly, van Gogh constantly struggled with poverty while he was alive. Over time however, he did become fully recognized for his artistic genius, and on June 2, 1973, the Van Gogh Museum, honoring the iconic artist, opened in Amsterdam after ten years of preparation. He found consolation in art and took up drawing to record the people and their harsh living conditions in charcoal sketches. Meanwhile, he also discovered the solace that art could bring: “Art is to console those who are broken by life” and “leads to God.” From then on, Theo, who understood and believed in Vincent, assumed the role of Vincent’s financial benefactor, art promoter, and adviser. Theo had been close to Vincent since childhood, and the two brothers cherished a life-long friendship. Throughout his decade-long artistic career, nature and honest members of the working class, with which Vincent identified, remained two of his fondest subjects. “The Potato Eaters” is one of the most representative works from the period. This, Vincent’s first large-scale multi-figure work, is regarded as one of his masterpieces, and is now under the care of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Music as the Food of Love: Dr. Aryan Tavakkoli (vegan), Part 1 of 2

The song we just heard is 'Finding Paradise,' written and performed by Dr. Aryan Tavakkoli, a vegan singer and songwriter from the United Kingdom. Dr. Tavakkoli is no ordinary musician; her professional area of expertise actually lies in the field of medicine. In addition to holding a medical degree from the Medical College of St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, UK, she holds qualifications in vegetarian and vegan nutrition, traditional Chinese acupuncture, phytotherapy, and mind-body techniques. In 2017, she opened her own facility known as Quantum Clinic, where she offers an integrative support program for patients diagnosed with cancer, using a holistic approach. Whole foods, plant-based nutrition is a foundation of her medical practice. Dr. Tavakkoli has been practicing the Quan Yin method of meditation with Supreme Master Ching Hai for approximately 16 years, and believes that her spiritual practice and Master’s teachings have been instrumental in helping her both personally and professionally. "When I listen to a particularly beautiful piece of music, sometimes I can feel it's almost as though my cells are vibrating at the same level of frequency as the music. I find that music's very uplifting for my soul. It makes me feel happy. It seems to reach into my very core and I'm sure that's the same for a lot of people when they listen to beautiful pieces of music." "I think that when we meditate, it kind of opens up a portal to a higher realm, and then through that portal, we can receive information, we can receive ideas and insights, and sometimes that can be very profound. Of course, that's not the reason that we meditate, but it's like a positive side effect of meditation, a kind of bonus. Perhaps we feel so uplifted when listening to beautiful music because on a deep level, music reminds us of where we come from. It reminds us of our Heavenly home." 'Finding Paradise' is all about discovering the inner world within ourselves that is actually the real paradise. Let’s now listen to another song called 'The Way of Compassion' written and performed by Dr. Tavakkoli. And the songs generally, the theme running through them is all really about compassion. It's about living in harmony with others that share this Earth with us, that are our animal friends.

Indonesian Artist Lucia Hartini's (vegan) Surreal Universe

Indonesian Artist Lucia Hartini's (vegan) Surreal Universe

“Only through my paintings, can I share the surrealistic experiences that I have seen in my real surrealistic world.” Lucia Hartini is an Indonesian painter. She is well-known for her beautiful surrealism and portraying unique phenomena in nature. Her artwork has been exhibited around the world in Japan, the United States, Australia, and Malaysia. Her painting, “The Blue Moon,” is part of the Tokyo Fukuoka Museum collection in Japan. “When I was little, I dreamed of flying high, and I painted what I dreamed. And it turned out to be objects of nature, such as the stars, the moon, the sun, the wind, the water, the mountain, the ocean. My diet is vegetarian. So it makes me calmer, lighter, healthier, the inspiration comes sooner. Especially if I meditate, the visions come so quickly that it is unexpected.” Often inspired by her own encounters with other realms through her meditation practice, Lucia’s paintings intend to merge the dualism of the realistic world. Her hatching technique with oil paints enables her to create highly detailed paintings. In the famous Jakarta newspaper “Kompas,” there was a prominent report on a very special topic – “Umbrella 2000”: “When we looked at Tini’s (nickname for Lucia Hartini) painting, we could see that it is heavily loaded with alarm for the future. The woman is holding an umbrella, the shaft and the top of which were drawn as circling clouds. And at the fringe of the umbrella hung the planets. Due to the composition of the colors and the dynamics of the painting, it was entitled ‘Message of the Umbrella 2000.’” Lucia Hartini mentions in her blog: “While exhibiting my painting “Payung 2000,” or “Umbrella 2000,” some people told me that the woman in the painting resembles Supreme Master Ching Hai. I was taken [aback] initially, as I [had] never intended for the woman in the painting to be anyone in particular.” “Finally, one day, I got introduced to a Master who guides me, and Her symbol is holding an umbrella for shelter. At last, I felt, whoa, how surreal this is. Finally, I got that. I am more, live more healthily, am calmer, paint more, with more distant imagination, which, if I can put it into words, is more peaceful for my soul, more peaceful for my heart.”Inspired by Supreme Master Ching Hai, Lucia Hartini also painted “Silent Prayer I” and “Silent Prayer II.” Let’s take a look at some of her other remarkable creations.

Transforming Entertainment for a Changing World, Part 2 of 2

Transforming Entertainment for a Changing World, Part 2 of 2

On today’s program, we’ll continue to present some of the transformations occurring in the entertainment industry as it strives to cope with the COVID-19 and climate change crises. In 2020, responding to lockdown restrictions mandated in various parts of the world, many major musical festivals and events went virtual. For example, from July 16 to August 1 the Toronto Summer Music Festival took place online, and during that time the audience streamed high quality pre-recorded performances by the musicians. The Music Declares Emergency is a group of artists, music industry professionals, and organizations that jointly declare a climate and ecological emergency and urgently request an immediate governmental response. Through its campaign, No Music on a Dead Planet, the group is working diligently to get world governments to realize they failed to adequately address the climate crisis. Vegan hip hop artist Xiuhtezcatl Martinez is known as a bold ecological activist who was the youth director of the environmental and social justice group Earth Guardians. His song “Speak for the Trees" won the Jury Award in the competition at the 2015 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. British megaband The 1975 is making a difference by raising awareness among musicians to address climate change. On the band’s self-titled album, the opening track features a spoken-word essay by Greta Thunberg titled, “Notes On a Conditional Form.” “We are right now in the beginning of a climate and ecological crisis. And we need to call it what it is -- an emergency.” We give a standing ovation to the entertainment industry for making significant moves against the coronavirus pandemic, and for their efforts in addressing climate change. We thank all the artists and their co-workers for creating content that bring cheer, hope, happiness, love, and laughter to all. Through Heaven’s blessings and grace, may all of Earth’s inhabitants soon adopt the vegan way of life that’s beneficial to both humankind and the environment.

Street Art: Brightening and Uplifting Our World

Street Art: Brightening and Uplifting Our World

Contemporary graffiti art began with tagging or scratching names on public places in New York City, USA in the late 1960s and evolved during the 1970s and 1980s into the creative spray painting of words and images. Graffiti conveying political and social attitudes evolved into beautiful public mural art.For many years a famous icon of repression, the Berlin Wall became one of the world’s largest canvases for anonymous street artists to express their freedom. Since its official opening on September 28, 1990, artists from 21 countries have contributed to the Wall’s display of colorful art works about freedom, peace, world unity, historical events, environmental protection, and other subjects.In recent years, street art has been used to decorate and beautify communities and the surrounding environment. Street art that creatively interacts with elements of nature helps to brighten up dull aspects of city life. “Tree Afro” is a style of street art that complements the trees in a neighborhood, using them to form the hairstyle for a drawn person.Originating in Italy during the 16th century, chalk art began when artists honored the Lady Madonna by using chalk to render Her image on city streets. Contemporary chalk art has three categories of practitioners: copyists who recreate famous art works, free artists who create their own original art, and 3-D artists who use perspective to create 3-D artworks.In this urgent time, street art is becoming an increasingly popular medium used to raise awareness about the climate and the environmental crisis. Many street artists are joining the force to save our planet. In Kreuzberg, Italian street art legend Blu painted a large mural entitled “Global Warming Hourglass” to call attention to melting glaciers and rising sea levels. Street art is also a popular tool for vegan activists to champion animal rights and promote the compassionate lifestyle, which ultimately leads to world peace. London-based vegan artist Louis Masai paints colorful murals of beautiful animals to raise awareness about the plight of endangered species nearing extinction.

Mr. Paterson will kindly give his remarks and introduce his husband, the gifted singer-songwriter René Lamontagne, for a special performance.

Songs of Oneness, Part 1 of 2

17:06

Songs of Oneness, Part 1 of 2

As humanity faces the calamities and challenges of our time, we need to keep our spirit of oneness and work together. During the 2020 World Unity Week conference, Supreme Master Ching Hai reminded us: “It’s good that we have this opportunity to express our unity spirit and gratefulness to Heaven and Earth for our world really needs it, needs earnest prayers and sincere effort to unite all beings on the planet. Because we are all nourished from Earth and blessed by Heavens. We are brothers and sisters including all non-human beings on Earth. It is the negative force that tries so hard since time immemorial to divide us and to make us hurt each other. But with pure prayers and sincere effort, we will win. However, just prayers and talk are not good enough. We have to act. We have to change our way of life to more benevolent, compassionate, loving and kind towards each other, regardless of race, species and nationalities.” Since March 2021, India has experienced the 2nd wave of COVID-19 cases. With a sharp increase in the number of cases, hospitals sent out an emergency call for help, as the country slipped into a state of crisis. With this backdrop, the “Song of Unity” was born. The singers are volunteer members, and supporters of the foundation and recorded the performances from their homes during lockdown. This is their way of “spreading the message of love, positivity, and unity.” “When my tune and your tune merge, they become our tune! Rivers of tune from every direction flow to meet the Ocean.” Our next piece is a folksong called “Circle of Song,” written and performed by folksinger Tony Turner from Ottawa, Canada. “Come join with me in the circle of song The young and the old, the weak and the strong Singing with one voice though we may speak different tongues In the circle of song we are one.” The last song today is called “How Good It Is for Brethren to Dwell in Unity,” by Janet Morrison, with lyrics from Psalm 133 of the Holy Bible. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment Like the dew upon Zion For there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life forevermore.”

Traditonal Musical Instrument: Enchanting Mandolin, Part 1 of 2

Although there are many variations, the mandolin generally has a hollow wooden body that includes a soundboard with a teardrop shape. Today, the mandolin plays a vital role in both orchestral and bluegrass music. As Mr. Nigel Woodhouse, a professional mandolinist who has played with many world-renowned orchestras and ensembles, explains: “… the mandolin has two of each string; they’re close pairs intended to be played as one string. It’s the doubling of the strings which gives the mandolin its particular resonance and sustain.”

Music as the Food of Love: Dr. Aryan Tavakkoli (vegan), Part 2 of 2

“All living beings carry God's light His spark in all creation shines bright, A sacred soul in all things living, The Divine Love is always giving But we take Life, we waste and use it. The Divine spark, we just abuse it. The sacred lives, once free and able, Turned into corpses for our table Physically, spiritually, logic'lly it don't make sense What part of 'Thou Shalt Not Kill' don't you understand…” This powerful song calls for human beings to take a hard look at the animal flesh that they consume as food, and think about whether it makes sense physically and spiritually. In an interview with Supreme Master Television team members, Dr. Tavakkoli elaborated further. “‘Sixth Commandment’ came at a time when I was giving talks, and on that particular day I was preparing for a talk the next day. By that time, I'd given lots of talks and I'd reached a point where I was thinking, you know, really, what does it take to convince people that moving to a plant-based lifestyle or a vegan lifestyle is the right move? And so, this was really troubling me for the whole day. And as I settled down for my meditation that night, it was still on my mind. And that's when this music and these lyrics started coming through. And it was a very powerful energy, it was actually quite uncomfortable. And this continued for most of the night. And that night was the night when ‘Sixth Commandment’ was born.” “‘Earth Song’ is about Mother Earth speaking to her children. And what Mother Earth is saying to us is that we are her children. But it's not just us that's her children; the animals are also her children. And when we hurt the animals, we're hurting her children and we're hurting her.” “Children of the Earth Hear your Mother’s plea. She is weeping so … She asks you to refrain, to show mercy, Do you see or no? See the animals as your brethren as I see all of you as my children…”

Ms. Mozhdah Jamalzadah: A Voice for Afghan Women

In a work-related telephone call with the Supreme Master Television team on August 19, 2021, our most beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke on the importance of protecting and respecting women. “You see we are in the 21st century, women became astronauts, go into space. Women are in the scientific field. Women have invented many things that are beneficial to human beings, animals, and the whole world. And women have become prime ministers, presidents, and leading the world into prosperity. At least their nation. Of course, the world will benefit as well. Women, they are wise. They understand all that. They can see far in the future. It’s not just about themselves that they worry about. They worry about their country, their children, the future of their children.” One woman who has been standing up and championing the rights of women in Afghanistan is Ms. Mozhdah Jamalzadah. An award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and talk show host, Ms. Jamalzadah is often referred to as “The Oprah of Afghanistan.” “I got into music because I wanted to raise my voice and raise awareness, to remind the Afghan people that women are a very big part — they've always been a big part — of society.” “My dad wrote the next song, "Dukhtare Afghan" ("Daughter of Afghanistan"), for Afghan girls and women, and he wrote the most beautiful lyrics — it was the first Afghan female protest song that's ever been out there.” On her talk show, Ms. Jamalzadah openly discussed issues around marriage, divorce, and domestic violence, bringing them to public attention for the first time in Afghan history. In 2010, Ms. Jamalzadah was invited to sing “Dokhtare Afghan” for the U.S. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on International Woman’s Day. In its blurb on “Voice of Rebellion: How Mozhdah Jamalzadah Brought Hope to Afghanistan,” Amazon.com has this to say about Ms. Jamalzadah: “Many have tried to silence her, but Mozhdah Jamalzadah remains the most powerful female voice of her generation in Afghanistan, boldly speaking out about women’s rights.”

Art in a Pandemic, Part 2 of 2

To contain the spread of Covid-19, more than a third of the world’s population went into various forms of lockdown at one time or another, with some countries implementing the most restrictive mass quarantines ever seen. In a time when normal social contact is not possible, music helps people connect, share their joys and sadness to ease the loneliness of lockdown. Music can comfort, give strength, and inspire hope. After the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, forty artists from France, Canada, Italy and other countries sent their well wishes to the Chinese people through a song called “Together.” As Covid-19 spread to Europe, Italy saw rapid infections, overwhelming the country’s hospitals and medical personnel. A strict lockdown was implemented and its citizens helplessly watched as the virus claimed more victims, sometimes close neighbors. In a difficult time when sadness clouded the rays of hope, people took to the balconies to play music and sing songs of encouragement. Inspired by Italy, people from different countries also stepped outside to remotely send messages of solidarity via music. Virtual concerts and choirs have become very popular because of the lockdown. Utilizing online tools and technology, musicians are able to collaborate with each other for amazing performances. Laura Campbell from Melbourne, Australia, founded the Virtual Concert Band as a means for musicians of all skill levels from around the world to cooperate and create music. The online platform has recordings submitted by 225 musicians from 29 different countries. Some annual musical events also went virtual. The April 30th International Jazz Day that was scheduled to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, was celebrated through a virtual global concert. We offer our sincere thanks and prayers for all the musicians around the world. May you always have the support and comforts needed to continue your beautiful, uplifting work. We also pray that when we come out of this Covid-19 crisis, we will be more compassionate for one another and for all sentient beings.

Ecopoetry: For the Love of Nature and All of Her Inhabitants

For millennia, the beauty of the natural world has been an infinite fountain of inspiration for artists of all races and nationalities who resort to poetry to express their love and appreciation of nature, and many of these verses survive to this day. Tagore, the world-renowned Indian writer and poet, saw nature as a manifestation of the highest universal principle in Hinduism, the Brahman, and composed many beautiful, wise verses on nature. Rūmī, a venerated enlightened spiritual Master of the Sufi tradition wrote many poems that not only describe the beauty of nature but also inspire readers to seek higher meanings beyond. “I Died as a Mineral” is one of them. “I died as a mineral and became a plant; I died as plant and rose to an animal; I died as an animal and I was a man. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying? …” Poetry that has strong ecological content and takes a more critical view of humanity’s relationship with the planet is becoming more popular and relevant. Such work is known as ecopoetry and is a subgenre of ecocriticism, the study of literature and its relationship to the environment. “The Dead Seal at McClure's Beach” is an ecopoem written by multiple award-winning poet, essayist, and activist Robert Bly from the United States. The poem opens our eyes to really see the cruelty that humans are imposing on the people of the seal kingdom. Many Latin American poets also expressed their environmental concern through their works. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has also written several ecopoems, such as “Please Wake Up!” that express Her deep sorrow and concern about the current state of our world, and call for people to be good stewards of Mother Earth and all of our animal-people co-inhabitants. Supreme Master Ching Hai’s poems are powerful tools to awaken people from their slumber. She once revealed the effect of one of Her poems after it was aired on Supreme Master Television. “You know, just one poem that I wrote, the poem of the piglet, 130,000 people turned into vegetarian for good.” Ecopoetry courses are now being taught at various universities. In the UK, ecopoetry competitions are held to raise awareness, gain insight, and evoke concern about the pressing environmental issues we’re currently facing.
