Honoring the Heroic Firefighters: “Only the Brave” and “Ladder 49”

Today, we will present two touching films about heroic firefighters. Directed by Joseph Kosinski, “Only the Brave” tells the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, who lost 19 of the 20 members while fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire. “Only the Brave” is a moving tribute to these real-life heroes. As the climate changes, wildfires worldwide are much more frequent and devastating than ever. Billions of animal friends have lost their lives alongside people and their homes. We have an urgent situation on our planet Earth. We pray for all of humankind to adopt the vegan lifestyle to save us from the many dangers we face today and stop global warming. All information concerning the scientific evidence of climate change and its solution is in Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Book, “From Crisis to Peace.” Free for download at: Crisis2Peace.org The second film is “Ladder 49.” “Ladder 49” introduces Jack Morrison, who, after graduating from the fire academy, begins to work as a pipeman in one of the busiest firehouses in the city: Baltimore City Fire Department Engine Company 33. Despite some practical jokes on the rookie, Jack quickly becomes friends with the team, particularly the captain, Mike Kennedy, who caringly watches out for them all. Directed by Jay Russell, this heartfelt film has touched millions of people. Vegan Oscar-winning actor Joaquin Phoenix gives a wonderful performance as Jack. Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actor and singer John Travolta plays Captain Mike Kennedy. “Only the Brave” and “Ladder 49” are two of the top firefighter movies that illuminate the courage, determination, and self-sacrifice of these heroes who willingly risk their own lives to save others. With deep gratitude, we pray for the health and protection of the noble firefighters in their selfless, life-saving efforts.

Provoking Thought on World Emergencies: “Contagion” & “The Land of Hope and Glory”

Provoking Thought on World Emergencies: “Contagion” & “The Land of Hope and Glory”

Telling a both riveting and cautionary tale, “Contagion” was critically acclaimed and was also well-received by scientists for its accuracy. About 10 years after the film’s release, we are experiencing something very similar with the current coronavirus pandemic. Like the virus in “Contagion,”COVID-19 was originally transmitted by eating animals and has rapidly spread around the world, making millions of people sick and taking more than 310,000 lives (as of May 18, 2020). Outbreaks like swine flu, avian flu, mad cow disease, SARS, coronavirus - what they all have in common is animal consumption. The only way to guarantee that this never happens again is to shut down all slaughterhouses. The revolutionary 2017 British documentary “The Land of Hope and Glory” was produced by the founders of British animal rights organization Surge. We see the extreme and terrible lifetime of confinement these animals have to endure, as well as the unnecessary cruelty that make their lives a constant nightmare. Like us, these animals embody the mystery and wonder of consciousness. Like us, they are not only in the world; they are aware of it. Like us, they are the psychological centers of a life that is uniquely their own. “The Land of Hope and Glory” gives us a rare, in-depth look at the UK livestock industry and sends a clear message that “worth of life” is equal amongst all living beings.

The Journey After Life: “Soul” and “Hereafter”

12:08

The Journey After Life: “Soul” and “Hereafter”

Today, we are going to present two inspirational films about the mystery of the afterlife, namely “Soul” and “Hereafter.” Let’s first take a look at “Soul.” Joe Gardner is a middle school music teacher in New York City, yet what he really wants is to be a jazz musician. In shock and not ready to accept death just as his lifelong dreams had come true, Joe manages to escape and ends up in a region called “The Great Before.” Full of twists and turns, this fantastic new Disney film, produced in 2020 by Pixar Animation Studio, takes us on a special journey filled with hearty laughter and valuable lessons. In the movie “Hereafter,” Marie Lelay, a French television journalist, is hit by the 2004 tsunami while vacationing in Thailand. Swallowed by the wave but rescued later, Marie has a vision of people standing in a realm of light. Another character, George Lonegan, is an American with the ability to communicate with the deceased and passes on messages to their living relatives or friends. In London, we meet 12-year-old twins Jason and Marcus, who are trying very hard to stay with their mother, who has serious substance abuse issues. One day, when Jason goes to pick up the detox prescription for his mother, he loses his life in an accident. Marcus is devastated by the tragic news. When he is moved to a foster family, he seldom talks anymore and tries everything he can to reach Jason in the other world. As we watch these three stories converge and the characters’ lives entwine, “Hereafter” is both a thought-provoking and inspiring movie, leaving viewers to contemplate the afterlife awaiting us. “Soul” and “Hereafter” are two profound films that will remind us of the purpose of this life and our true focus.

“Spotlight”: Courageous Media Exposé of the Catholic Church Scandal

“Spotlight”: Courageous Media Exposé of the Catholic Church Scandal

Today, we are going to present the award-wining film entitled “Spotlight.” Based on a true story, the film takes us to the offices of the Boston Globe, the oldest and largest daily newspaper in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The Spotlight team all grew up in Catholic families and know how powerful the churches are. But they are bravely prepared to face the inevitable challenges in order to fulfill their duties as true journalists. The lawyer of the victims claims the archbishop of Boston knew about Father Geoghan’s crimes without doing anything to stop it.The Spotlight team meets with victims and uncovers 13 sexually abusive priests. But a researcher named Richard reveals that his findings over the past 30 years suggests there are actually many more abusive priests in the Boston area. After more than three weeks of extensive work, the Spotlight team finally identifies 87 potentially abusive priests, which is remarkably close to Richard’s estimate. They start to verify them one by one. It is no longer about one person or a few bad priests, but a much bigger problem within a system that has turned a blind eye to such heinous crimes.Directed by Tom McCarthy, who also co-wrote the script with Josh Singer, the 2015 film “Spotlight” earned widespread praise from both critics and viewers for its talented actors, wonderful screenplay, and historical accuracy. It won over 100 awards, including the 2016 Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.Supreme Master Ching Hai has also courageously spoken up about this ongoing issue, including during a conference in November 2021. “So why do these priests have any immunity? What right do they have to continue living in luxury, while many children languish all their lives? (That’s right, Master.) Either murdered or languish all their lives, and losing faith in God and in the teaching of Jesus. [...] These priests, they are evil, they are devils! They are not priests. You have the right to treat them just like any other citizen, any criminal. In fact, they are worse than any normal criminals, because they know right, but they did wrong. They abused their power to molest the children and took away their childhood, their dignity, and their whole life also.”

Powerful Vegan Films: “There is a Monster in My Kitchen,” and “Vegan 2020”

Slash-and-burn, or fire-fallow cultivation, which involves cutting and burning forest or woodland to clear fields for livestock-raising, has devastated the Amazon Rainforest. As the largest terrestrial carbon dioxide sink on our planet Earth, the burning of almost 906,000 hectares of Amazon Rainforest in 2019 caught the media’s attention and caused international concern. Data from Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research showed that more than 8,400 square kilometers (3,200 square miles) of the Amazon was burned across Brazil alone. “There’s a Monster in My Kitchen,” a short film made by Greenpeace UK together with Mother London, unveils the true reasons behind these disastrous events. “Vegan 2020” shows us bushfires in Australia that have taken the agonizing toll of more than 30 human lives and billions of animal lives, also destroying homes and habitats. Witness the first “gigafire” in modern history, spanning almost 1 million acres in the US state of California. The meat and dairy industry is again responsible as the number one contributor to global warming, resulting in climatic conditions being hotter and drier than usual, and fires increasing globally by up to 30 percent. In less than an hour, “Vegan 2020,” not only shows the danger and damage caused by meat consumption, but also brings us hope with much exciting and positive news, inspiring people to make the best choice: Be Vegan! Encouraging people to live a life of compassion and consideration rather than causing pain and suffering to other sentient beings, the planet Earth, and ourselves, “There’s a Monster in My Kitchen” and “Vegan 2020” are two films that must be seen.

Animal Praises: “The Star” and “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”

Today, December 24th, is Christmas Eve. We are going to present two cartoon films about this joyous and holy holiday season featuring our legendary animal friends: “The Star” and the 1948 “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” The film “The Star” transports us back to “Nazareth, 9 months B.C.” A kind and loving Mary is visited by an angel telling her that she has been chosen to bear the Son of God, the Messiah. Just at that moment, a new star rises in the sky glowing brightly in the night, preempting a Light that will uplift the whole world. Our main character is a young donkey who is chained to a grinding wheel, walking around and around in a never-ending circle. Donkey’s best friend, Dave the Dove, is determined to help make his dreams come true. When they see the new star rising, they know that their time has come. Finally, they escape, chased vigorously by the miller. Donkey hurt his ankle during the pursuit and ends up looking for refuge in Mary and Joseph’s courtyard, where the couple have just gotten married. Directed by Timothy Reckart, “The Star” is a beautiful 2017 animation film that retells the Nativity of Jesus from the animals’ point of view and is a “must-see” for Christmas audiences.In 1939, Robert Lewis May worked for Montgomery Ward, a popular department store, and was assigned to write a “cheery” Christmas book for shoppers. Thus, the most famous reindeer, Rudolph, was created. In 1948, Robert May’s brother-in-law, Johnny Marks, adapted the story into a song that immediately became a number one hit. Since then, the story has been published in various books and made into many movies. Today, we are going to present the short film made in 1948, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” the very first telling of the story on screen. Directed and produced by Max Fleischer, this inspiring short film shows us that when we are different from others, it may be a special gift from God!

Birthrights of Animals: “Ferdinand” and “Bovines or the Real Life of Cows”

Birthrights of Animals: “Ferdinand” and “Bovines or the Real Life of Cows”

Yesterday was the Lunar New Year, and to welcome the Year of the Ox, we will present two wonderful films about our bovine animal friends who, just like us, are born free and should be respected: “Ferdinand” and “Bovines or the Real Life of Cows.” Our first film, “Ferdinand,” starts in Casa del Toro, a ranch in Spain that raises and trains bulls for the arena. It is also where our hero, Ferdinand, lives with his father. Ferdinand shows no interest in fighting. Instead, he loves to smell the flowers. He is often ridiculed by the other young calves, including Valiente, who believes that winning against the matador is the only way to survive. When Ferdinand’s much-loved father is taken away for bullfighting, young Ferdinand is so worried that he can’t sleep. He waits for his father, who never makes his way back home. Ferdinand decides to run away. He is later rescued by Juan, a kindhearted flower farmer, and his beautiful daughter Nina. Directed by Carlos Saldanha and based on Munro Leaf’s popular 1936 children’s book, “The Story of Ferdinand,” this fascinating Oscar and Golden Globe Award-nominated animation shows us that kindness and compassion is much more powerful than violence. “Bovines or the Real Life of Cows” was directed and written by French filmmaker Emmanuel Gras, who said that he wanted to make a film “where animals could be real subjects and not objects of human explanation… where humans could be at the same level of animals and not above them.” This beautiful 2012 documentary is a chronicle of the “true life of cows” without narration or interviews. Elegant and sensitive, this César Award-nominated contemplative documentary leaves us to ponder what we have witnessed. Do we, the human, really have the right to take the lives of others?

On her way to school, teenager Haru risks her life and saves a cat from an oncoming truck. The cat she saves is no ordinary cat; he turns out to be the prince of the cat kingdom! In gratefulness, the king of the cat kingdom showers Haru with all sorts of surprising gifts. In addition, he sends a representative to ask Haru to come and marry the prince. The king’s representative mistakenly takes Haru’s response as her consent. In reality, Haru does not want to spend the rest of her life with the cat prince. Then, following the suggestions of a mysterious voice Haru finds a cat named Muta, who takes her to the Cat Business Office. It is here that she meets the sophisticated and stylish Baron, the male protagonist of the film. Shortly after meeting Baron, Haru suddenly finds herself swept away by a group of cats who are there to take her to the cat kingdom for marriage. Baron, his friend Toto the crow, and Muta run after the group to try and save Haru from her impending wedding ceremony. What will happen to Haru? Watch “The Cat Returns” to find out about the rest of Haru’s adventure. “Kedi” and “The Cat Returns” are two heartwarming movies about our beloved feline friends. Both touching and entertaining, they have shown us in their own way how much blessings and joy cats can bring to our lives. Our world would truly be Heaven if we all live peacefully with our precious animal friends.

Mysterious UFOs: “The Phenomenon”

14:01

Mysterious UFOs: “The Phenomenon”

In our presentation today, we’ll take a look at how the 2020 documentary “The Phenomenon” challenges the public’s perception of UFOs with never-before-seen footage and extensive interviews with eyewitnesses, experts, government officials, and high-ranking members of the military. Among the numerous compelling sightings featured in this documentary are the encounter experiences reported by astronaut Gordon Cooper while training in Germany and Air Force Col. William Coleman in Alabama, USA. In 1964, police officer Lonnie Zamora in Socorro, New Mexico, USA, not only sees a big white object sitting in the arroyo, but also two small figures walking around the craft dressed in white overalls. “Maybe they’re trying to communicate.” “The UFO shut down several missile silos in Montana.” It was recently revealed that UFOs visited high-security military bases in the US and Ukraine decades ago, and have shown the ability to manipulate and disarm nuclear weapons. A more recent event in 1994, believed to be the most significant close encounter in modern history, occurred at the Ariel School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe. One child told Dr. Mack how, during the encounter experience, thoughts came to her: that we are harming our world, too many trees have been cut down, and eventually there will be no air and people will die. In 2010, Supreme Master Ching Hai answered a question about UFOs. “Now they feel they could come more now; also because of the urgencies of our planet, okay? (Yes.) Because now it’s safer for them to let us see them. They wish that we’re also as developed and as knowledgeable about moral standards, like they are. We have to thank them also. Even individually, they helped to rescue many people who doesn’t even know that they are rescued; because they’re unconditional. Without their intervention, we would have gone: the planet, gone; people, gone – all gone. They are trying to help us so that we can hang on in there, so that we may wake up and help ourselves.”

The Right to be Born: “Unplanned”

14:55

The Right to be Born: “Unplanned”

Directed and written by Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, based on the real-life 2011 memoir of Abby Johnson, “Unplanned” shows us how cruel and damaging abortion is, not only to the unborn babies but also to the women, the mothers.Now, let’s listen to an excerpt from Abby Johnson’s speech given at the 2020 Republican National Convention. “My name is Abby Johnson, and I spent eight years working for Planned Parenthood. But today, I’m a pro-life activist. I truly believed I was helping women, but things drastically changed in 2009. But the tipping point came a month later, when a physician asked me to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion. Nothing prepared me for what I saw on the screen: an unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction. And I’ll never forget what the doctor said next, ‘Beam me up, Scotty.’ The last thing I saw was a spine twirling around in the mother’s womb before succumbing to the force of the suction.I’ve been the perpetrator to these babies, to these women. And I now support President Trump because he has done more for the unborn than any other president. During his first month in office, he banned federal funds for global health groups that promote abortion. That same year, he overturned an Obama-Biden rule that allowed government subsidy of abortion. He appointed a record number of pro-life judges, including two Supreme Court justices. And importantly, he announced a new rule protecting the rights of health care workers objecting to abortion – many of whom I work with every day.”Recently, Supreme Master Ching Hai addressed related questions about Texas passing a law banning abortion. “Any killing of innocents, especially babies in the womb, even it’s yours but it’s God-given. So any killing like that would bring disaster to our world, to everybody. Most people have abortions because they don’t have other people to give them wise counsel, to support them. They were lonely and vulnerable. So in the society, in any country, we should make like a volunteer group or something for this case, so that people who get unwanted pregnancies can come to them or talk to them, even over the phone, about their problem, and get right, wise counsel. In this case, many lives will be saved, and also many guilts and consciences will be at peace.”

The Venerated Paramahansa Yogananda (vegetarian): “Awake: The Life of Yogananda” and “The Answer”

16:19

The Venerated Paramahansa Yogananda (vegetarian): “Awake: The Life of Yogananda” and “The Answer”

Today we will present two inspiring spiritual movies about the venerated enlightened Master Paramahansa Yogananda. “Awake: The Life of Yogananda” is a 2014 documentary about the great Indian Guru who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s and inspired millions of people seeking spiritual awakening. The film begins prior to the birth of Mukunda Lal Ghosh, later known as Paramahansa Yogananda, to a devout Hindu family in 1893. His parents’ Guru, Swami Lahiri Mahasaya, not only predicts the birth, but also specifies that through Yogananda, “many shall receive the spiritual enlightenment of India” and stated that “the message of Yoga will encircle the globe.” At the age of 17, Yogananda meets His own Guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri, whom He has seen many times in His visions and who will train Him for the next 10 years. Yogananda then leaves everything behind and follows God’s will to the far lands of the United States of America. Yogananda said that there was a secret link between the body and the spirit. “The technique of meditation, recharging the body battery with cosmic energy, where it is not a creed or dogma but a science of the soul and spirit.” The film “The Answer” takes us to Romania during the birth of James Donald Walters in 1926. Intrigued, he reads more on Hindu philosophy and is attracted to the photo of Paramahansa Yogananda on the cover of “Autobiography of a Yogi,” a book that will change his life forever. James has a realization that God is the answer. He leaves everything behind, travelling to Southern California, where Yogananda lives. Although Paramahansa Yogananda is taking very few disciples at the time, He immediately accepts James and showers him with the unconditional love of a Master. Watch this movie to see the wonderful experiences and miracles that James undergoes, as well as how Master Yogananda helps him overcome challenges on the path to enlightenment.

“Hogwood: A Modern Horror Story” – Interview with Tony Wardle (vegan)

Directed by Tony Wardle and presented by renowned British actor Jerome Flynn, “Hogwood: A Modern Horror Story” is an award-winning 35-minute short film that follows a courageous group of undercover investigators from Viva! as they expose the cruel atrocities inside one of the largest farms in the UK that raises pig-people for slaughter.Tony Wardle and his colleagues reveal the harsh truths of raising animal-people for consumption, illuminating why the world must go vegan. “The important thing is that we have truth and science on our side. Livestock are causing the greatest damage to global environment. Livestock are implicated in all the killer diseases that kill people in the West, the degenerative diseases.”“This, make no mistake, COVID-19 is a dress rehearsal. It’s quite a benign dress rehearsal for what lies ahead. There will be more pandemics, there will be more serious pandemics. And until we stop invading wild animal spaces, treating animals like commodities, and littering the world with factory farms, it’s going to happen.”As Tony Wardle explains, choosing the vegan lifestyle and raising awareness is the most powerful thing that we as individuals can do to stop the horrible injustices to animal-people and prevent more disasters. “All these big companies are now seeing the future. They know what the truth is, and they know that meat and dairy consumption is going to collapse. And so, they are hedging their bets, and they are getting in on the vegan market. We can feel, we can sense the change that is taking place. We've won the scientific argument, we've won the moral argument, and now it’s a case of ‘catch up.’ We have to just keep plugging away, plugging away, and trying to elect a government that we will tackle these issues and not surrender us, and the animals, and the planet.”Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present Tony Wardle the Shining World Hero Award with high esteem and sincere gratitude for your vital work, which brings more awareness of the horrible cruelty of our humans’ world to the helpless innocent people from the animal kingdom, thus lifting society out of an ignorant and violent way of life. May Heavens forever protect you and all involved, may your noble endeavors be always successful. With all love in God’s Blessing.”
