Living Simply: The Zero-Waste Lifestyle

Today we’ll examine the problem of global waste and learn how to live a zero-waste lifestyle. Everyone sees we have a problem with plastic, and everyone knows we need to solve it. And it’s urgent. Everyone knows that if we don’t do something about this, plastic will suffocate our oceans, will cause ever-worse health problems for human beings.We need to do something about this. We cannot keep giving poison to the Earth because it will stay in the soil forever and keep building up generation after generation. We should do what we can to minimize harm to the environment because that’s our duty. We should do that, we should be kind.

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 2 of 2

In view of such daunting challenges, the IPCC Climate Change and Land Special Report could represent our last hope for a sustainable future. It is also a solution that can be carried out on both the individual and the governing front. The first of these themes involves the preservation of our world’s forests, as well as other land-based carbon-absorbing “sinks,” such as wetlands and grasslands. The second theme focuses on putting an end to our grossly inefficient food system. The Report concludes that transitioning to a plant-strong diet can free up hundreds of millions of acres of land, which will help to curb deforestation and climate change. Upon hearing of the IPCC Special Report’s suggestion for the world to transition to a plant-strong diet, our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai was overcome with joy. “We had good news: the United Nations and all the countries in the world signed the less meat protocol. So it’s becoming official now. I hope they just go forward. Become meatless. Not less meat, but meatless. No meat at all. That’s why I came to celebrate with you.”

Climate Crisis: Countdown to Year Zero, Part 3 of 7

On today’s program, We’ll continue watching “Countdown to Year Zero,” as Ms. Velez-Mitchell asks Dr. Rao how humanity will make the shift from eating meat to veganism. “And I thought that we are doing a disservice to the people if you don’t tell them what is going on. And animal agriculture, it has such a huge impact on climate change and it’s not being addressed at all.” “You’re also one of the people behind two incredible documentaries, “Cowspiracy” and “What the Health.” Processed meat has officially been determined by the World Health Organization to be cancer causing. But these parents are shoving these nuggets down these kids’ throats and they don’t see anything wrong with it, but it’s cancer causing. How do we fight all that?” “What I’m suggesting we do is we build a new one, rather than fighting the old one. (Yeah.)”

Innovative Ideas for Living More Sustainably, Part 2 of 3

Innovative Ideas for Living More Sustainably, Part 2 of 3

On today’s program, we’ll visit Jess Morales of Montreal, Canada who, along with her husband and their two young children, are living zero-waste lives. “When we first began, we did a trash audit, which is just a fancy way of saying we looked in our trash can to see what was in there. We realized that most of our garbage was food waste and food packaging. So, we stopped buying pre-packaged meals and snacks, and now we buy loose fruits and vegetables. And we also opt for things that we can buy easily available in bulk, like seeds, nuts, and raisins, things like that to snack on. And, instead of buying packaged meals, we cook a lot of our stuff from scratch.” Let’s now return to Jess and her family, and discover how they deal with inedible food waste, such as vegetable peelings and fruit cores. “So, we started composting. Now our compost is nothing fancy. It’s just our old garbage can with holes drilled into it. But eventually, our city started a curbside compost collection as well. So just this very simple change of composting helped us reduce our waste by about 40%.” “So, to prevent us from accumulating unnecessary things, we asked our family members to give experience gifts or activities, or simply just to give the gift of their time. So, for Christmas this year our kids got snowboarding lessons. They went bowling for the first time with their auntie. They loved it. And for their birthdays, they got swimming lessons and dance lessons. So, we find these types of gifts really enrich our children’s lives; they create memories, and also long-lasting skills.” Our most gracious Supreme Master Ching Hai frequently encourages us to minimize our possessions and simplify our lives, because a simple life has many benefits. “It’s not that we have a big house and a luxury place, then we feel happy. I can guarantee it. You have my word. The more stuff we have, the more troublesome it becomes. We have to wipe and to clean it, and worry about it getting taken away by others, worry about thieves. If we have nothing then we have nothing to worry about. If we have little and cherish what we have, it will be just the same as if we own a lot. We feel even happier than having more stuff.”

Climate Crisis: Countdown to Year Zero, Part 7 of 7

In previous episodes, we learned that “Year Zero,” the year our planet could be destroyed, is 2026. However, we can prevent this apocalypse by making one simple change: global adoption of the vegan lifestyle. Only in this way can we prevent “Year Zero” from happening. “So, this is going to be over. And then most people are going to flip when social pressures flip the other way and many people start being vegan, and it starts being an actual thing.” “It’s inevitable that their industry will go away. It will end. The planet can’t sustain it, and human consciousness will not go along with it. We're evolving too quickly.” “Vegan companies like Beyond Meat’ are now going public, and this is where the smart money is going. We are hitting the tipping point.” “We represent a worldwide movement, and we will not relent until total animal liberation is achieved!” “We do have a chance to reverse climate change. People are in alignment with this mission. They will listen to us. If we say, ‘If we just reduce consuming animals, we can actually bring back the forests.’” “The moral position is to resist this and to end it.”

Deb Ozarko (vegan): Is Our World Beyond Hope? Part 1 of 2

Deb Ozarko (vegan): Is Our World Beyond Hope? Part 1 of 2

Ms. Deb Ozarko of Ontario, Canada is the author of “Unplug” and “Beyond Hope: Letting Go of a World in Collapse.” She is also a graphic designer, the creator and host of the Unplug podcast, an “unapologetic vegan,” and an Ironman triathlon competitor. In her latest book, “Beyond Hope,” Deb writes that between climate change, widespread pollution, mass plant and wildlife extinctions, global overpopulation, and runaway biosphere decay, our world may have reached a point of no return. On today’s program, Deb begins by telling us how her interest in protecting the planet began. For as long as she can remember, she has felt a deep connection to the Earth. And even as a child, she would pick up garbage that others had left behind. “I don’t really have an answer other than this intuitive love for the planet and for life, I guess.” “And my little child mind knew that just picking up the garbage was making a difference. And that just became something I did on a regular basis. I still do that to this day.” When she was only 12, Deb made another remarkable decision. Although none of her other family members were vegetarian, Deb decided to adopt a plant-based lifestyle. “I just had this strong intuitive gut feeling that consuming animal flesh was wrong. I couldn’t do it.” As a little girl, Deb also had premonitions about the potential destruction of the planet. She recalls sobbing to her mother, saying, “I just want to live long enough to see the healing of the Earth.” “It wasn’t something that was a constant. It was something that I would pick up now and then. And it would come in waves.”Deb discusses some of the many environmental problems our Earth is now facing. Although the book discusses the immense environmental problems facing our world, Deb finds personal solace in spending time with animals. Deb explains that these animals, especially the baby squirrels, have taught her many lessons…

The Latest Fashion Trend: Eco and Sustainable, Part 2 of 2

Today, we will continue to explore more of these meaningful and creative ideas and their applications. Besides the sensible considerations of presenting clothes worn by models with different body sizes, social and environmental consciousness have also made their ways into fitting rooms. Online fitting rooms, also known as virtual fitting APPs, are coming into play. In addition, the same technology can be used to create solely digitalized clothes with our videos or photos. We are able to “wear” clothes without necessarily buying them physically and growing our wardrobe collection unnecessarily.With the awakening of public humanitarian concerns and environmental awareness, more consumers care for not only the product itself but also the stories behind the fashion brands. Fair Trade implemented a platform to help these workers, who are providing the quickest fashion products, to get more reasonable compensations for their labor. Fashion companies that follow Fair Trade stipulations are providing better working conditions and fair treatments to employees, especially in disadvantaged countries. Recently “the-good-trade” sustainable community also published 35 Fair Trade fashion brands, which helps consumers in selecting guilt-free fashions to their hearts desire.We, the fashion consumers, have the right to know where our money is going because we don’t want to invest in businesses that harm our earth. Thus, transparency in the fashion product supply chain is important. A Shanghai based company, Icicle, aims to provide honest and environmentally responsible products by strictly controlling and tracing businesses’ production processes. These include sustainable materials, supplier selection, working conditions, production facilities, dyeing processes or no dyes at all, and post waste handlings.Besides recycling and reuse, reducing consumption can be tackled too. Some experts have called for a total abandonment of fast fashion, which is contributing to the environmental crisis. Not to mention that fast fashion brands are known to pay workers low wages while demanding the quickest possible finished products. Fast fashion brands, such as Lucy & Yak, made their decision to break away from this business practice in 2020. They closed their factory in India for safety concerns for workers, and also launched a fundraising campaign to help those affected and their families.

Climate Crisis: Countdown to Year Zero, Part 5 of 7

On today's program, we'll travel to Costa Rica to learn more about the exciting and inspiring project, “Vegan World 2026.” “So, the mission of the ‘Vegan World 2026’ is to co-create a culture of normalized nonviolence. So, we are on top of a hill that used to be coffee farms and cattle ranches and it has now been turned into a native forest. And the idea is to understand how to live in harmony with nature, so that we are not running away from animals, we are not running away from spiders or killing them off when they come into our homes. We have to transition to a way of living where we can return land back to nature, bring back the forest, bring back the wild animals, so that we can sequester carbon, heal the climate, and solve the biodiversity-loss issue, so essentially returning Earth back to its pristine form, you know, Eden, back to nature.” “Our demands: governments stop subsidizing animal agriculture and start promoting organic plant agriculture. Two, media report the truth about animal agriculture's devastating impact on human health, the environment, and our fellow creatures. We plead: One: environmental, conservation, health, animal welfare and religious organizations adopt a public vegan policy. Two: consumers stop buying animal products. YOU CAN PREVENT YEAR ZERO!”

Plastic Pollution: Its Consequences for Rivers and Oceans, Part 3 of 3

Plastic Pollution: Its Consequences for Rivers and Oceans, Part 3 of 3

On today’s program, we’ll look at some of the solutions emerging all around the globe. According to a 2019 study published in the journal Science Progress, as many as 90% of all plastic items are used only once and then discarded. Plastic bags are among the biggest sources of pollution, with as many as five trillion being consumed globally each year. When disposed of improperly, the bags clog waterways, pollute oceans, and choke marine life. Many nations have decided that this must stop. As of 2020, more than 90 countries have banned the use of single-use plastic bags, and an additional 36 nations minimize the problem by applying fees for their use. Sadhguru, an internationally renowned spiritual teacher and founder of the Isha Foundation, calls for global action both by individual citizens and governments. “I am talking about one simple solution. This is not a total solution. This is a simple correction step. That is, single use plastic must be banned in all the countries.” Currently, plastic is made primarily from petroleum. But scientists around the world are searching diligently for alternative, more eco-friendly materials from which to make it. For example, polyhydroxyalkanoate, or PHA, is a biodegradable material derived from plant-based sources. Mr. Dane Anderson and his twin brother Mr. Jeff Anderson have co-founded Full Cycle Bioplastics, a company that produces plastic from this more sustainable alternative. “Full Cycle Bioplastics is the company that we founded that has the technology that can turn any organic waste into a compostable and marine degradable bioplastic.” In Chile, an award-winning company called Solubag whose founders are Shining World Invention Award recipients, produces another type of eco-friendly non-plastic bag. The biodegradable Solubag material was created in 2014 from a new raw material made through a synthesis of calcium carbide and natural gas. The company’s environmentally friendly bags completely dissolve in water within five minutes and are being used in major shopping centers in Chile. Supreme Master Ching Hai frequently reminds us about the detrimental impact of plastic pollution on our environment, saying that each of us has a personal responsibility to reduce our use, especially of plastic water and drink bottles. “Plastic bottles have been the cause of suffering for much marine lives because they will float everywhere, in the river, in the lake. And then they flow also to the ocean, everywhere. And they’re not digested with time, even. And sometimes fish, or other marine life, they swallow them and it causes them a lot of pain and sickness. And sometime birds also get caught in them, or eat them and they get sick also. Please take care of the environment so that we can live in a beautiful place. Not just for the animals; it’s also for us.”

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 2 of 3

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 2 of 3

Over the past century, almost every pandemic has been a zoonoses. World authorities and organizations have become increasingly alarmed about the ever-increasing number of zoonotic diseases. The World Health Organization has also expressed concern, estimating that approximately one billion illnesses and millions of deaths occur each year from zoonoses, and that 60% of all existing infectious diseases in the world came from animals. As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, China temporarily closed some of its live animal markets, but did not ban them. Many believe far bolder action is required, even on a global level. Supreme Master Ching Hai tell us it is not, and frequently reminds us that the true cause of all pandemics is meat consumption, as in a 2009 conference in Thailand. “According to the scientific study of these fatal diseases, all of them originated from human hunting or slaughter of animals for meat. This is the activity that must cease for the betterment of humanity, animals and our world - the meat eating must stop.”

Climate Solution: A Revealing Documentary by United in Heart, Part 3 of 4

On today’s program, we present the final segment of the film, starting with Mr. Aviram Rozin, Executive Director of the non-profit organization Sadhana Forest, describing how desertification can be reversed through the careful conservation of rainwater. “What we need to do is keep much more water on the land, so that nature can do the work for us and supply us the water. We don't need to depend on commuting water from very far away. We need to depend on local water going into local aquifers and then being pumped locally and supporting the farmers and other people that live on the land.” “We move forward with reforestation. Because reforestation is life. If you deforest to zero, then you are destroying the country. You cannot count the value of a tree. You cannot imagine how much danger can happen in a savannah when you have cut down a tree; whereas, when you plant one tree, you can already see the benefits.” “The American Dietetic Association is the largest U.S. organization of professional dieticians and nutritionists, and represents over one hundred thousand credentialed practitioners. In 2009 the Association released an official position paper about vegetarian and vegan diets. It stated that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful and nutritionally adequate. It further explains that well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood and adolescence, and for athletes.” “Our kids are also why we created this documentary. Or in other words, we must work together to solve climate change.” “This is why we ask you to set brave goals on food, carbon and communication.” “Our collective goal is to educate and empower people, so that governments rapidly engage in vegan reforestation. Our app facilitates this process through a video platform on the climate emergency, the great transition, how to go vegan, and vegan health considerations.”

The Intelligence and Spirituality of Trees and Plants, Part 1 of 2

The Intelligence and Spirituality of Trees and Plants, Part 1 of 2

While walking in a garden or forest can you feel the positive energy in your surroundings? If you can feel their pleasant vibes the plants or trees may be sending you “mystical signals!” Professor Michael Pollan, an expert in plant neurobiology, explains, “They have analogous structures. They have ways of taking all the sensory data they gather in their everyday lives, integrate it and then behave in an appropriate way in response. And they do this without brains, which in a way, is what's incredible about it, because we automatically assume you need a brain to process information.” Our dear, compassionate Supreme Master Ching Hai has a loving message to share with us about the divine nature of plants and trees. “Now, trees, they do have their magical power, their healing power, loving power, and they do help you with advice and all that even. But you, the deaf, don’t hear anything, see nothing. Every grass, like a big, maybe a group of grass, every tree, has a spirit of some kind that dwells in it, takes care of the tree, or that is their dwelling place. They are assigned to stay there and that’s their home. And they do bless the surroundings; that’s their job.” Professor Claire Grierson, a plant biology expert, shares a similar view. She says, “I think plants are massively taken for granted. I think they are extremely sophisticated organisms. They are adapting exquisitely well to the changes around them all the time. I think we can learn a lot from plants philosophically.” Let’s conclude part one of this series with a fascinating revelation about plants from Supreme Master Ching Hai. “Of course, the Tree of Life symbolizes life, and the deity wants to remind us that we do not destroy life, because if we destroy other life, then we destroy our own life also. If we destroy trees, which give us oxygen and shade, and hold the soil together so that it will not be washed away, and so many things that the tree can do, and if we keep cutting them, just to raise the animal-people, then we kill the animal-people as well, then our lives will be at stake also.”

Save Our Amazon Rainforest: Be Vegan

Where we’ll learn about why areas of the Amazon basin in Brazil have been burning at an unprecedented rate, and how we can help stop it on an individual level. Earth’s largest tropical rainforest, the Amazon plays an important role in stabilizing the planet’s climate by slowing down the pace of global warming. Unfortunately, however, severe wildfires are currently spreading across this precious region due to the clearing of land for cattle ranching. According to the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, cattle ranching is the single greatest driver of Amazon deforestation, accounting for approximately 80% of the total. The way to solve the deforestation crisis and save the planet is simple: end meat consumption. Stopping meat consumption is a crucial action to take in order to save planet Earth.

Extreme Weather Events: Urgent Call for Prevention, Part 1 of 3

As various regions across the globe become hotter and drier, destructive wildfires have been growing in size, ferocity, and speed. Wildfires that caused severe destruction of ecosystems, homes, and other types of property in Australia, California, Siberia, and parts of Europe were featured on Supreme Master Television in March of this year. Unfortunately, the dismaying weather phenomena caused by climate change continue to occur unabated. Now let’s travel to the Amazon, the world’s largest rainforest, which is home to approximately three million species of plants and animals, and one million indigenous people. Brazil has had more than 72,000 forest fires so far this year [2019]. More than half of them were in the Amazon. Wildfires often occur in the region during the dry season. But there has been an 84% increase from 2018, according to Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research. Like many countries, China has also seen a number of deadly forest fires due to dramatic weather effects. On March 31, 2020, a devastating wildfire broke out in Xichang, Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China's Sichuan Province. State television footage showed flames shooting into the sky above the city of Xichang, turning the sky orange. The fire was reported to have spread across more than 1,000 hectares of forest. In April 2020, several wildfires took place across Scotland due to dry, windy weather. More than 30 firefighters rushed to extinguish the blaze in the Kilpatrick Hills, West Dunbartonshire. Six trucks and a helicopter also arrived at the scene to help put an end to the raging flames. During the same week, similar fires were seen in the Highlands, and in the city of Dumfries and Galloway and in Stirling, a city in central Scotland. In May 2020, it was reported that more than a dozen wildfires were raging across the state of Florida, USA, burning property and prompting evacuations, as excessive heat and dry weather took place. The Florida Panhandle in the northern part of the state was among the hardest hit areas. Wildfires in at least three different parts of the Panhandle damaged or destroyed buildings, forcing more than 1,000 people to evacuate their homes. “Everything is good for people if they don’t eat meat anymore. So, they should also quit it for their better life, better health, better environment, and saving this Earth home for all to enjoy, especially for their future generations. If we don’t do it now, the Earth will be gone! It’s not a matter of personal choice anymore. It’s a planetary life-and-death matter.”

Climate Crisis: Countdown to Year Zero, Part 6 of 7

Let's find out more by joining internationally acclaimed television host, author, and animal rights activist, Ms. Jane Velez-Mitchell, as she interviews Dr. Sailesh Rao. “The world that we are in now is based on normalized violence, which is really about killing things off. And we're killing things off at such a fast pace that we are in danger of killing ourselves as well. That's a frenzied rate of killing! And all because we are making money. Somebody is making money off of all this killing. So, we have a system that's based on making money off death, disease and destruction. Death for the animals, disease for human beings and destruction for the planet. That's the system that we are in, because it's a system based on fear, it's based on war, continuous war, endless war. It's all about violence. It's a very violent system. And so, nature is now telling us, if we don't stop this and change to a system of normalized nonviolence by 2026, you're done.” “The most important is to, please, choose to be vegan. The vegan diet is not an option anymore. It is a must. It is an obligation if we want to save our only planet.”

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

On today’s program, we’ll travel to Asia and Europe to learn how these continents have been affected by severe weather events lately. In China, torrential rains during the summer of 2020 caused dangerous flooding in several major river basins, especially around the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers. The number of floods in China this year was 60% higher than in previous years, and 77 of the nation’s rivers reached record levels. In Japan, during July 2020, a week of torrential rains pounded the southwestern and central parts of the nation, triggering severe flooding and landslides, and killing at least 68 people. In Gandaki Pradesh in Nepal, at least 126 people lost their lives due to natural disasters, such as floods and landslides, triggered by the monsoon rains. A heavy monsoon season also caused fatal flooding across Yemen and Pakistan. By mid-June, several hundred people had died, hundreds of others were injured; and hundreds of thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed. From June to October 2020, several major floods and landslides swept through other European countries, including Georgia, Ireland, the UK, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania, Hungary, and Ukraine, impacting thousands of people and causing dozens of deaths and enormous economic losses. Ukraine was particularly hard hit. These extreme events, such as droughts, floods, torrential rains, tropical storms, and fires are all caused by climate change and humans’ ignorant actions on the environment and animals. According to numerous scientific studies, the primary cause of climate change is raising livestock animals. This industry, in which more than 70 billion animals are raised each year, is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than all forms of transportation combined. Scientists recommend that the widespread adoption of a plant-based lifestyle is the fastest way to halt climate change. Supreme Master Ching Hai has also been calling for a global shift to a noble and compassionate vegan lifestyle since the 1980s. “I HOPE EVERYBODY WAKES UP QUICK, QUICK, QUICK. BE VEGAN TO USE THIS COMPASSIONATE, BENEVOLENT, SUSTAINING ENERGY IN ORDER TO SAVE OUR PEOPLE, OUR WORLD.” May God bless our precious planet Earth. We pray to Heaven that all people will quickly adopt a compassionate vegan lifestyle to halt climate change and the resulting severe weather events.

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.”

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!"

Pandemics: The Key to Prevention, Part 3 of 3

The threat of future zoonoses or animal-transmitted diseases is even more concerning. Currently, over 72 billion land animals are slaughtered for human consumption every year. And what’s even more troubling is that many of these animals were raised on factory farms. For years, world health experts have warned about the dangers of factory farms as uncontrolled sources of new viruses. World organizations recognize the need for international regulation of the livestock animals’ industry. Pandemics are immensely costly, both in terms of lives lost and economic costs, and most of them come from animals. Raising livestock animals and meat consumption are also the major causes of climate change, deforestation, pollution, and loss of wildlife. Ed Winters, aka “Earthling Ed,” is a vegan educator from London, England. he explains that meat consumption has been the root cause of many of the world’s deadliest diseases. As such, eating meat can no longer be considered a “personal choice.” Dr. Michael Klaper, a highly acclaimed physician, consultant, and speaker, believes the current pandemic is a warning. Dr. Klaper: “I have to say something about the origin of this scourge that we’re facing. This was not a random event. It has to do with the confinement and slaughter and eating of animals.” For more than three decades, Supreme Master Ching Hai has been reminding us about the bad karma we incur from eating meat and the need to adopt the compassionate, plant-based lifestyle. The current situation is so critical that in March 2020 Master sent an “URGENT Message to All World Leaders and Governments.” “The WORLD IS BURNING, threatens to get worse any moment, HUMANS AND ANIMALS PERISHING at an alarming rate. Heavens and Earth are plaguing us with ever new, more strange diseases. Destructive signs are evident everywhere. WARNING SIGNS ARE AMBER and obvious around our world! Our climate is accelerating. So, stopping these brutal, murderous businesses is the fastest way to cool our Earth. And this VEGAN LAW IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO SAVE OUR WORLD.” Many thanks, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for your clear guidance and direction. We pray that all beings soon adopt the noble, compassionate vegan lifestyle.
