Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: ItsRainingRaincoats Brings Sunshine to Migrant Community

Dipa Swaminathan is a magnanimous woman who was born and raised in Bangalore, India, where, as a young person, she felt a deep sense to work with the community by visiting the slums and teaching English, along with volunteering at animal shelters. In 1995, Mrs. Swaminathan moved to Singapore to practice law with a desire to care for those who required support and assistance. In 2013 Mrs. Swaminathan came to realisation on the issue of migrant workers when the riots broke out in “Little India.” “Foreign workers were already a marginalized community in Singapore, but when these riots happened, I felt like they became even more maligned. Though it was just a few who rioted, the whole community was painted with the same brush,” says Dipa. Let’s hear from Dipa about some of the things “ItsRainingRaincoats” is doing for migrants in Singapore. "We’re distributing hot food, care packs, data cards, things like phones, fridges, washing machines, hair clippers, 3-in-1 coffee, dry packs of noodles, a whole host of things. And in addition to that, even workers who need help with finding a new job or who've not been paid their salary, we also take up individual cases and we help them." Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gladly present the Shining World Compassion Award to ItsRainingRaincoats, plus a US$30,000 contribution in support of your kind efforts, with all love and gratitude, in Heaven’s grace.” "Dear Ms. Swaminathan, It is with great admiration and appreciation that we present to ItsRainingRaincoats the 'Shining World Compassion Award' for showing gratitude to foreign workers, and uplifting their spirits, bringing smiles of joy. This Award is presented in recognition of your caring altruism, benevolently considering migrant workers and the enormous benefit they provide to host nations. Your loving concern heralds a new era of empathy, making our world a love-filled home for all. With Great Honor, Love and Blessings in God’s Grace. Supreme Master Ching Hai."

Shining World Education Award Recipient: Acharya Sonam Dorje Rinpoche (vegan)

Shining World Education Award Recipient: Acharya Sonam Dorje Rinpoche (vegan)

Today we travel to Manaslu, a remote mountainous region of west-central Nepal, to visit the Shree Lho Basic School. Founded in 2010 by Reverend Acharya Sonam Dorje Rinpoche, the school has offered education and boarding free of charge to children of surrounding villages. Thanks to this loving and compassionate deed of the Reverend Rinpoche, the children are able to receive a proper education. “The school is located high in the Himalayas. There are a lot of children in the village. There is no school and they don’t go to school. When they grow up, they have no education and cannot find work. In 2010, the village chief had a meeting with the older villagers and the elderly. Everyone wanted to donate the land and seek help to build the school. Construction of the school started in 2011. In the first year, there were more than 30 children studying.” The esteemed Reverend explains the difficulties faced as the number of students began to grow, as well as the plan to continue developing the students after they graduate. At the school all meals provided are strictly vegetarian. The respected founder explained to us the benefit of a vegetarian diet. “It has a great impact on the world. There is more and more vegetarian food. Vegetarian food is very important. Vegetarian food is more extensive. Why? It is of great merits and benefits to help all sentient beings by saving their lives. In the Buddha's scriptures, it is mentioned that vegetarian food is a great way to help sentient beings.” Besides conducting classes in three languages to offer knowledge and useful skills, the school also teach their students the value of virtuous conduct, based on Buddhist teachings.Upon learning of this compassionate work, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai gratefully presented the Shining World Education Award to the respected teacher of Tibetan Buddhism. “With the utmost respect and reverence, we humbly thank Acharya Sonam Dorje Rinpoche for your untiring, selfless commitment to saving people from suffering, for your exemplary wisdom and saintly love, and for sharing the Holy Dharma. May the Buddha bless you and all involved abundantly, always. With Great Honor, Love and Blessings in Heaven’s Grace. Supreme Master Ching Hai.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Omari McQueen – Divinely Inspired Young Vegan Chef

At the dawn of this Golden Era, numerous angelic children and youth are helping to elevate the world into a vegan Eden on Earth. Omari McQueen, the youngest award-winning vegan chef and vegan entrepreneur in the United Kingdom, is one of them. Omari had to learn how to cook for his brothers and sisters at age 6, when his mom fell ill. Inspired by a PETA UK video about the suffering of animals at the age of 7, Omari was determined to take up veganism as a lifestyle and vocation. As he turned 8, Omari began to invent his delicious vegan snack menu and to host vegan cooking shows on YouTube. Soon after he founded his widely loved vegan dip enterprise Dipalicious of which he is the chef, the CEO, and the founder. "I want to do kids ready meals for children. And I want to bring people together for food without harming animals. It’s just me who has to like, show the world that veganism is a good thing to have. And it helps you with your health. And it helps our environment as well." The now thirteen years old Omari has received the TruLittle Hero Award for being an Entrepreneur Hero before the age of twelve, the Compassionate Kids award for using entrepreneurial talent to help animals, and the Proud and Gifted Award for being a vegan chef and a youth empowerment speaker. He has motivated his whole family to become vegan. His big brother spends holidays volunteering at Dipalicious and vegan events such as London Veg Festival. Touched by his purity and love, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Cheerfully present Omari McQueen the Shining World Compassion Award, plus US$10,000 for his loving and kind endeavors, with gratitude and best wishes for continued success. May you and your loved ones be forever blessed in Divine grace.” "Thank You, Master Ching Hai for this check. And I really love it. The way I will use that money is I would buy my own food restaurant, get making my children’s ready meals then it’s all sorted."

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Lê Văn Hả (vegan) – The Selfless Doctor with a Golden Heart

Today, we journey to Cần Thơ, a city in southern Âu Lạc (Vietnam), to meet a great Oriental Medicine Doctor, Lê Văn Hả, who devotedly takes care of vulnerable seniors and those with no relatives at his facility, free of charge. He also gives them a comfortable shelter unconditionally and runs a completely free vegan eatery nearby his house. “I saw that most of the people here are destitute, who live by the riverside. Then I suggested to the Township Governmental Board to allow me to open a vegan kitchen. I wanted to help feed the poor people so they feel less suffering, less spending for food, so that they can labor without too much worries. Therefore, I wanted to operate the vegan kitchen here.” “Most of the people who come here to receive the vegan meals are meat eaters. So, when they are eating vegan food, we have the reason to do it. Any day that they don’t eat meat, they reduce their bad karma. And the people who work here will gain merits. And when we do the charitable work, we also reduce our bad karma. Therefore, that’s why I operate a vegan kitchen in this lifetime. Even though I work hard and strenuously, with no money, I still do it. If having no money, I can borrow from other people, and then I work multiple jobs to repay them.” “I went to work different kind of jobs so that I could earn money to be able to do charitable works and give medicine to others at no cost. Everywhere I went, I encouraged people to be vegan. And because of being a nurse, it is easier for me to advise people to be vegan. As a Buddhist myself, I always try to have compassion, and spread the Dharma.” Deeply touched by his compassionate deeds, Supreme Master Ching Hai, “with grateful tears” presented the affectionate physician the Shining World Compassion Award, “plus US$50,000 to lovingly support his noble work, in Heaven’s mercy. May the Buddhas embrace your soul and those you care for with powerful spiritual upliftment and love.” Our Association members in Âu Lạc (Vietnam) happily held a ceremony and presented Dr. Lê Văn Hả with the Award. Besides the Award letter, he also received a beautiful crystalline plaque, Master’s monetary contribution, as well as several of Master’s publications.

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Dr. Munjed Al Muderis –Orthopedics Revolutionary and Human Rights Activist

Born to a prominent family in Baghdad, Iraq, Dr. Munjed Al Muderis first dreamed of becoming a surgeon after watching 'The Terminator' as a boy. Having seen many victims of conflict with missing limbs, Dr. Al Muderis’ dream of someday helping such people was finally realized after 10 years of resettlement, when in 2010, he began his career as an orthopedic surgeon. Today, Dr. Al Muderis is one of the few surgeons in the world who pioneered osseointegration surgery, which takes mobility, functionality and quality of life for amputees to a new level. Through his foundation, Dr. Al Muderis’ biggest hope is to further develop, expand, and share this life-changing technology with the world, and to provide help unconditionally to people who need it most. A compassionate ambassador for multiple humanitarian organizations, Dr. Al Muderis champions for people seeking asylum and refugees, sharing his words of encouragement. "The message that I would give to all refugees is that, when we leave our birth countries we get detached from our roots, and it may take a very long time before we find roots again in the new place that we live in. But what I would recommend is that don't give up, don't lose hope, and don't feel alienated, because there will be discrimination, however the way you deal with it is by showing compassion and interaction, integration, assimilation and education." Upon hearing about his humanitarian, revolutionary work, Supreme Master Ching Hai appreciatively presented Dr. Al Muderis the Shining World Compassion Award, plus US$20,000 as a humble token of support toward the refugee foundation under his care. "Dear Dr Al Muderis, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to you the 'Shining World Compassion Award' for your tremendous contributions to the osseointegration surgery field and for championing the welfare of refugees, hoping to build a more compassionate and caring global community. Your love has led you on many self-funded missions to heal the body and hearts of traumatized people, rekindling their confidence. For making amputees whole again creating hope of a brighter future, and for being a courageous, merciful and admirable example of saintly nobility, with the utmost respect, we salute the great compassionate deeds of Dr. Munjed Al Muderis. May Heaven shower you with abundant love. In Allah's Immense Love, Protection and Blessings, Supreme Master Ching Hai."

Compassionate and Caring Acts that Make a Positive Difference: The Shining World Award Recipients, Part 1 of 2

Several doctors from Plant-Based Health Professionals UK, a nonprofit organization, have joined together with the global No Meat May campaign to urge the public to be vegan to help the world avoid future pandemics. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present Plant-Based Health Professionals UK the Shining World Compassion Award, with much love, high esteem and gratitude, also thanks to the No Meat May campaign. May Heavens forever bless you and all involved in working toward a peaceful and love-filled vegan future.” The next Shining World Award is to honor two sisters from Turkey, who provide food for hungry animals during the pandemic. Necla Varol and her sister Nazife Çoklaş have been driving around the Gallipoli peninsula of western Turkey every day to feed around 200 stray animals living in the 100-kilometer area. Making up for the visitors and residents who would normally be there to feed them, the kind volunteers diligently distribute about 120 kilograms of donated food from their van. Ms. Varol has dedicated her efforts to animal welfare since 2014 when she founded the Association for the Protection and Survival of Eceabat Stray Animals. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Warmly present the Shining World Compassion Award to Necla Varol and Nazife Çoklaş, plus a US$10,000 loving contribution to support the noble cause, with much love, praises and gratitude. May Heaven bless you manyfold for your caring hearts.” Now we journey to India to learn about three charitable organizations, whose volunteers lovingly take care of street animals during the pandemic lockdown. Bark India Charitable Trust of Puducherry, Casper’s Home in Agra, and Charlie’s Animal Rescue Centre in Bengaluru are three animal charities working to supply food to animals including dogs, cows, birds and monkeys. Moreover, the animal welfare workers are rescuing dogs left alone in homes when their human companions are quarantined elsewhere. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Bark India Charitable Trust, Casper’s Home and Charlie’s Animal Rescue Centre, plus US$10,000 each in humble support of your noble efforts, with lots of love, high esteem and heartfelt gratitude, in Heaven’s blessings and protection.” The next Shining World Award Recipient is an American film industry caterer. Along with his wife Lena Viddo and son Valentino, Felipe Avalos, co-owner of Big Love Catering in Brooklyn, New York, has been preparing free nutritious plant-based meals for seven of the state’s hospitals during the coronavirus crisis. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present the Shining World Caring Award to Felipe Avalos, Lena Viddo and Valentino, and a US$10,000 contribution in humble support of your noble family effort, with lots of love, gratitude and praise. May God bless you and your team always, in Divine protection.”

She is a successful former anchor at Los Angeles-based KCAL-TV and KCBC-TV, and a renowned host of her own eponymously named show, Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell, on the Headline News or CNN network.

So, go live, post and share.” Ms. Velez-Mitchell campaigns tirelessly on behalf of animals and the benefits of the plant-based lifestyle.

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Sir Darius Brown (vegan)

Today, we are going to travel to Newark, New Jersey, and visit Darius Brown, the young generous designer and founder of Beaux & Paws. Darius has selflessly helped rescue hundreds of dogs by making bow ties, and donating them to animal shelters across the United States and in the United Kingdom. “Speech, comprehension and fine motor skills delay” is a disorder that affects children, causing a developmental delay of movement and posture. This leaves children with coordination substantially below that of others of the same age and intellectual levels. Teenager Darius Brown, diagnosed at the age of 2 with "motor skills delay,” has come to show the world that all children, regardless of their differences, may make an impression on the world. “When I was eight years old, my sister used to make hair bows and I would always want to follow my sister's footsteps until I realized when I was younger, I had a comprehension delay, and a fine motor skills delay. My mom came up with an amazing idea of me cutting the fabric to help with my motor skills delay, and then once I started to play around [with] the fabric, I made my own way of making bow ties.” “The vision I have for my organization is that I see my business expanding into an empire, and also hopefully having my own stores. And I also want to have my own adoption center.” “I have all the hope in the world for animals because I believe that all animals have a safe place to live and have a nice home.” Upon hearing of his beneficent actions, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Happily present the Shining World Compassion Award to Darius Brown, along with US$10,000 to chip in for this caring endeavor, with love and gratitude.” “It's a great honor to be receiving the Shining World Compassion Award from Supreme Master Ching Hai. This award is just amazing. It will also be benefiting me as the supplies for making the bow ties. It will also be saving thousands and thousands of dogs lives and other animals lives as well.”

Transforming Lives With Compassionate Hearts: The Shining World Award Recipients, Part 1 of 2

In our two-part series “Transforming Lives With Compassionate Hearts: The Shining World Award Recipients,” it is our privilege to introduce several distinguished individuals, animal companions, and organizations who have been honored with the Shining World Awards by our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai. Let’s start the show with a look at the loving work of a US-based animal law advocacy organization. US District Judge, the Honorable Kristine Gerhard Baker of Arkansas, has granted Tofurky, a vegan meat producer, the right to continue using labels that contain words such as “sausage” or “ham” in Arkansas. In response to the order, vegan Stephen Wells, Executive Director and CEO of Animal Legal Defense Fund, said, “Today’s ruling is a victory for consumers and animals alike. More and more consumers want plant-based foods that don’t require animal cruelty to be produced.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Happily present the Shining World Defense Award to Animal Legal Defense Fund, with applause, congratulations, and gratitude for all you do for a vegan world. May your team be forever nourished by Heavenly nectar and love.” The next Shining World Award is to honor an admirable vegan activist from the UK. Pia Offord founded the Worthing Vegan Food Bank Network, in West Sussex County, to serve her town’s growing veg community, as well as non-vegans, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Pia Offord and the Worthing Vegan Food Bank Network, plus a US$10,000 loving contribution to further this caring endeavor, with all love and gratitude, in Heaven’s grace.”The last Award in today’s show is for Mr. James Bean of Maine USA. He launched Spiritual Awakening Radio in September 1988 out of his pure love of the great Masters and Their teachings. The focus of Mr. Bean’s programs is to share, through radio and other media, a deeper understanding of spirituality for a more peaceful planet.During November 2020 alone, Master presented 26 Shining World Awards with a US$291,000 contribution in total. Thanks to Her compassionate care and support, these awardees have been encouraged to continue their loving paths, helping people and animals in need around them, despite any difficulty.

Shining World Hero Award Recipient: Odin – The Great Guardian Pyrenees

Shining World Hero Award Recipient: Odin – The Great Guardian Pyrenees

Odin was adopted by Roland when he was a puppy. Odin and the other family dogs, including his sister Tessa, are the guardians of eight goats, protecting them from wild animals on their home premises. In October 2017, a wildfire broke out in Sonoma and neighboring Counties of Northern California, United States of America, including in the major city of Santa Rosa. Named Tubbs Fire, this wildfire was one of the most devastating in the history of California as thousands of homes were burned to the ground, tens of thousands of acres of land charred and human lives lost. When Roland got in the car and was ready to leave, he wanted to make sure Odin was with him. “He looked at me like I was crazy when I told him we had to go. He had this panic look on his face. He doesn’t like to not listen, but he will if he’s doing his job. He sat down and he wasn’t gonna go.” It was at this moment that Roland realized that Odin’s sense of duty was keeping him from leaving the goats and other animals behind. Reluctantly, Roland had no choice but to leave Odin and the rest of the animals before it was too late. “So the next day, I came back with a shovel to see if I can find anything left of them, and bury them. And everything was still on fire. Our house was leveled. The trucks had melted.” To Roland’s absolute surprise, Odin was still alive! Remarkably, all the goats and the other rescue animals, including the hens, the horses, and the sheep, were also safe and well, all thanks to Odin’s heroic bravery. “Odin was in pretty bad shape. His paws were badly burned. His fur was all singed. All of his whiskers were melted. His eye lashes were melted. He was having trouble with his eyes. Obviously he breathed in a lot of smoke. He was in pretty bad shape. He came up to us and collapsed in front of us. I told him what a good boy he was.” Touched by his intelligence and heroic acts, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai “Tearfully present the Shining World Hero Award to Odin the Great Pyrenees, plus US$2,000 for vegan goodies, with a big hug and lots of kisses. You are an outstanding example of love in action and touch our heart so much. May God’s blessings always be with you and your loved ones.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Free the Bears – Courage to End Animal Cruelty

Dr. Mary Hutton from Perth, Australia, founder of Free the Bears, has dedicated the past 25 years of her life to rescuing and combating cruelty to bears. Striving to stop their suffering “for as long as there are bears in need,” Free the Bears, established in 1995, has helped rescue and provide ongoing care to hundreds of bears at their sanctuaries in Laos, Cambodia and Âu Lạc (Vietnam). Free the Bears’ world-class sanctuaries consist of bear houses, cub nurseries, and wildlife hospitals that treat a variety of wild animals. They also work with traditional medicine practitioners to encourage herbal and synthetic alternatives to bear bile. “In 2009, I went to India and saw the last bear coming in, took the rope out of his nose and thought, ‘we’ve done it.’ That was 514 bears later, and it took just 7 years but the support we had was just amazing.” Upon hearing about the beneficent service of Dr. Hutton and Free the Bears, Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly presented the Shining World Compassion Award, and a contribution of US $10,000 for this noble cause. “Dear Dr. Hutton, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to Free the Bears the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for decades long service saving bears across Asia and laying the foundation for continual support well into the future.” “For being a beacon of light, shining bright, inspiring other like-minded saints to support the cause, for your unconditional love and passion to end animal exploitation, and for your benevolence and wisdom, it is our privilege to salute the great compassionate deeds of Free the Bears and esteemed founder, Dr. Mary Hutton, OAM. May you, your team and the precious animals you safeguard be always blessed and shielded by the Heavens. With Love and Blessings in God's Mercy Supreme Master Ching Hai”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Owen Colley – Pure-hearted Endeavor for Animals

In today’s program, we travel to Hingham, a small, suburban coastal town located on Boston Harbor in the South Shore of the state of Massachusetts, United States. Hingham, also called the “Bucket Town,” is most commonly known for its colonial history and having the oldest church in America. Six-year-old Owen Colley is from Hingham, but the lovely kindergartner had a special connection to Australia. Owen knows and loves a lot of the country’s animals, and had also lived there for a few months when he was a toddler because his father, Simon Colley, grew up in Sydney. Therefore, the little boy was devastated when he heard of the Australian bushfires, which had a catastrophic impact on the country and its wildlife in 2020. An estimated 1.25 billion wild animals, including mammals, birds and reptiles, died due to the disaster, and thousands more were injured and left homeless. When he heard the heartbreaking truth, he decided to do something to help. Knowing Owen had been making clay animal characters for a while, his parents came up with the idea of creating a fundraising campaign and making clay koalas to offer to friends and family as a “thank you” for donations for bushfire-affected wildlife. They set up a GoFundMe page for people to donate to Wildlife Rescue South Coast, a volunteer group based in New South Wales that helps rescue, rehabilitate and release wild animals. And the family sent one of Owen’s koalas to each person who donated $50 or more. The fundraising campaign became so successful that donations came in from nearly every state in the United States. The number of clay koalas they needed to make went far beyond what they ever expected. "Then my whole class found out today and then almost my whole class want to do it." With the initial humble goal of $5,000, the little angel’s fundraising campaign has amazingly reached more than $290,000 so far. When the caring efforts of Owen and his family came to the attention of Supreme Master Ching Hai, She “Lovingly present Owen Colley the Shining World Compassion Award plus US$20,000 in Heaven’s mercy, to further this touching, selfless work. May God love you, yours and protect all lives.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipients: Ocean Futures Society and the Whale Sanctuary Project, Part 1 of 2

On today’s show, we highlight Ocean Futures Society, a non-profit organization founded in 1999 by acclaimed ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau. Based in California, United States, the non-profit carries on the mission of exploring the global oceans and sharing with people around the world the significant connection between the quality of the ocean and the quality of our lives. In regard to the benevolent act of helping the orcas, Jean-Michel explained to us the traits of these sophisticated ocean creatures, which make them really special. “When you look at the marine mammals, and particularly the dolphins, you find out that at the top of many different species, there is one species which is called the Orca. They not only are warm blooded, they have families. They speak different languages just like we do.” In addition, he pointed out the three main current issues of the global oceans caused by human activities. “We are using for creation of energy products, which are now affecting the temperature, the emission of CO2 and ultimately, the ocean is affected by water temperature, by the acidification, and the energy increases the storms and the hurricanes and makes them stronger than they used to be.” “We need to stop using the ocean as a garbage can. What about chemicals, heavy metals, which are going into little rivers or big rivers, giant rivers, right into the ocean. So there are opportunities today to create industries that capture all these waters before it goes into the ocean, not only to get plastic, which we are very sensitive about because it's our primary sense. But what about what we don't see, oil, all these chemicals and heavy metals, we need to capture them and make them reused.” Touched by their noble efforts in helping the orcas and beluga whales go back to their ocean home, Supreme Master Ching Hai “lovingly offered the Ocean Futures Society the Shining World Compassion Award, plus ‘a humble contribution of US$10,000’ for their benevolent endeavor.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Tom Justyniarski’s Pedagogy of Love

Today we are delighted to introduce Mr. Tom Justyniarski, Polish author and educator who imparts the noble ideals of love, empathy and respect among children for our animal friends. Mr. Justyniarski is the author of 11 acclaimed storybooks for children of Poland. Based on the true story of Betty, a dog in his younger life, “Dogs’ Worries” won the award from Poland’s Ministry of Education and is included in the reading curriculum for school children. Mr. Justyniarski has visited 300,000 school children with programs such as “Lessons of Love for Animals” and the Window of Life project known as “Kids are reading the animals in the shelters.” “It happened that animals in my life had always had a very important place. It happened that as a child I learnt how to communicate with them, understand them.” “I realized that hope is in kids and kids made me dream that I would like to change the next generation of kids for kids, who will be sensitive, who will have open Light, who will have open hearts and who will live in paradise. I feel this kid energy which got activated and this one which there is. I feel my mission and know very well, that I am going to do it.” To honor his uplifting work, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai gratefully offered Tom Justyniarski the Shining World Compassion Award and “a token of support of US$10,000 with all love, and best wishes for further success in bringing love to many corners of our world.” “I saw this as a crystal palace, crystal palace of my soul. And a crystal heart now is coming from Supreme Master. And this is incredible.” “We thank You for being (here); for supporting us; for that we can also shine; for that we can unite; for that we are one.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Project Postcard

In today’s program, we travel to Singapore to meet a group of 15 compassionate alumni from the School of the Art, who started Project Postcard to raise funds for the migrant workers of the country. The funds have been donated to provide support to the workers in many ways, including with daily necessities, emergency medical aid, psychological support, and legal costs.As an expression of solidarity, they created 13 distinct postcards featuring individual artworks that depict migrant workers. Russell and Kimberly talked about some valuable experiences when they worked on the project. “I think for me, what I learned the most and what I found was most important, was to give back to society. I think it doesn't have to always be a very big project or a very big idea. Look at the immediate communities, your immediate surroundings, people who need help, people who are struggling and think about what you have, what are your strengths, what are your talents and how you can use that to empower and to strengthen a different community. It's just about helping wherever you can, whenever you can. It helps to spread seeds of kindness, it sows seeds of kindness in other people.”Within two months, they sold 15,000 postcards, and proceeds from the sale were contributed to the non-profit Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (HOME). They also decided to donate all of Master’s financial support to HOME. Heartfully touched by their loving endeavor, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present Project Postcard the Shining World Compassion Award, along with a US$10,000 loving contribution for your noble work, and special thanks to the Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics, with high respect, gratitude and praises, in Heaven’s immense love.”“Dear Russell, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to Project Postcard the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for using your artistic talents to help migrant workers. For creating beautiful artworks in support of migrant workers, for treating guests like locals exemplifying that we are all God’s children, and for your love, with many thanks, we laud the caring deeds of Project Postcard. May Heaven forever bless and smile on all involved. With Love and Blessings in God’s Mercy. Supreme Master Ching Hai.”

Shining World Caring Award Recipients: Kind-Hearted Efforts Creating Loving Havens for Wombats, Part 2 of 2

Shining World Caring Award Recipients: Kind-Hearted Efforts Creating Loving Havens for Wombats, Part 2 of 2

Today we will learn about another great woman, who dedicates her life to these cute marsupial friends. Yolandi Vermaak used to volunteer at Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary at New South Wales, Australia, where she was part of a good team working with the sanctuary’s founder Donna Stepan, a Shining World Caring Award Recipient who we met earlier during the show. However, wanting to do more, Yolandi founded Wombat Rescue in 2018 and began to drive to habitat areas searching for injured and orphaned wombats to rescue them. She also started a campaign of eradicating mange, a life-threatening infection for wombats. Her heart’s passion of rescuing and protecting the beloved marsupial has turned into her life’s mission ever since. Wombat Rescue started an extensive mange eradication program in late 2018. It adopted a new regime of intensive treatment by installing the medicine device “burrow-flap” at entrances of the burrows. Wombat Rescue also worked hard to enter into dialogue with the legislator and to spread the word into communities. For such a noble life keeping service, our Beneficent Supreme Master Ching Hai "thankfully present Wombat Rescue the Shining World Caring Award plus US$15,000 financial gift." "Dear Yolandi. It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to Wombat Rescue the Shining World Caring Award for your loving dedication and tireless efforts to care for these iconic marsupials. The award is presented in recognition of your caring spirit driving vast distances between dusk and dawn to save and rehabilitate distressed wombats until they can be released back into the wild. Your unconditional love heralds a new era of empathy making our world a kinder home for all. For your selfless commitment and courage, for your positive never give up attitude, and for your benevolence and warm-hearted concern, with high esteem we salute the great compassionate deeds of Wombat Rescue and its saintly founder Yolandi Vermaark. May Heaven forever smile on you and all involved. With great honour, love and blessings. In God’s grace. Supreme Master Ching Hai"

Shining World Compassion Award: Woodfield Animal Sanctuary

Shining World Compassion Award: Woodfield Animal Sanctuary

In 2013, Robbie Bartington and David Wallis moved to Gower in South Wales, United Kingdom, to retire with only a few animal-individuals on their property. That soon changed much to both their surprise! “We came here to retire, we’d been here about six months, and we could see that there was a need for a sanctuary because there was so many wild, feral ponies on the moors and mountains that were being neglected. And a lot of them have been abandoned there by their owners. So we took a few in, and then gradually, very quickly, it became known that we were taking ponies in and they then started arriving at our gate, quite large numbers too it started with a trickle and then very quickly came to, large numbers.” “We had so many rescue ponies coming into us and then starting to rescue unwanted lambs. We realized that we had a challenge, we'd have to try and build more stables and build more fields and paddocks and so many things needed to be done.” Woodfield Sanctuary offers people an opportunity to share their love for people from the animal kingdom by volunteering on the sanctuary. The volunteers can stay on the farm or work short hours per week assisting with all the errands, maintenance and repair work needed, and naturally assisting with taking care of all the lovely animal-people that have been rescued, healed, and homed by the sanctuary. Upon hearing about this loving haven for animal-people, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gladly present Woodfield Animal Sanctuary with the Shining World Compassion Award along with US$15,000 in humble support of your caring work, with many thanks and lots of love, in God’s mercy. May you and your adored residents be abundantly blessed by the Divine.” “Dear David and Roberta, now we would like to present you with a donation from Supreme Master Ching Hai, US$15,000 in honour to your glorious work for the beautiful animal-people and for making this planet a better place for everybody. Thank you.”

Shining World Leadership Award for Justice Recipient: Honorable Judge Elena Liberatori, Part 1 of 2

Shining World Leadership Award for Justice Recipient: Honorable Judge Elena Liberatori, Part 1 of 2

Argentina with its wide open fields, large mountain ranges and gracious glaciers has truly reformed the judicial system by creating recognised laws for non-humans since 2015. This landmark ruling is achieved thanks to a compassionate, dedicated lawyer Elena Liberatori, who since the age of 14 wanted to become a lawyer so that she may protect the innocent and pure citizens of this planet, our loving animal companions and friends.Elena also shared with us some insights into the scientific concept of sentient beings’ consciousness. “Because it was thanks to his auspice and sponsorship that in 2012, in Cambridge, a lot of neurological scientists came together, and concluded and told the world that the neurological substrates by which animals and humans feel joy and feel pain are exactly the same. It is important to remember that in France at the beginning of 2015, the concept of sentience is included in the Civil Code. And recently, this year and at the request of Senator Jesusa Rodriguez, who is from Mexico, native corn is a subject of law today in Mexico. So, this is not only animals, today nature, and well, in nature, we human beings keep on being present. It’s a matter of gradually spreading this concept. And that leads to peace, goodness, and to all those values that, sometimes, we feel so lost.”Elena touches our souls with her decisive, lawful knowledge of how to treat our animal companions and the planet with the love, respect, and dignity they deserve. She became inspired to tackle this agenda in her country’s legal system. “When I am asked what inspired me most to consider Sandra -an animal- as a non-human person is that I never doubted that animals have rights. There is a basic right, on our part, which is of respect towards them. I always say that it is not necessary to love them. But it is our must to respect them.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Aylam Orian (vegan) – Building Momentum Towards a Vegan World

Mr. Aylam Orian is a devoted animal rights activist, who founded and directs the organization Our Planet. Theirs Too. from the United States. The non-profit group’s noble work is to enlighten people about their unconscious biases and oppressive attitude towards animals. Aylam is also the founder of the National Animal Rights Day (NARD), an annual event celebrated in many cities around the world in June.“NARD functions mostly as a memorial day for animals. So we commemorate the billions and billions of animals that die every year by human hands and we honor the individuals that we sometimes have with us, the deceased animals that we have. We also commemorate their millions, billions of brothers and sisters that are lamenting at the same time in labs and circuses, farms, and slaughterhouses in factory farms.”Aylam talked about his vision which he strongly believes could be accomplished in the near future. “I have no doubt in my mind that the world, will go plant-based one day. People will realize that it's wrong to eat animals. They will realize how damaging it is to the planet. Our vision is that the world's going to that direction, whether the world likes it or not. And we're just trying to expedite the process with our activism.”Upon learning about his noble work, our Cherished Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Happily present Aylam Orian with the Shining World Compassion Award, with a loving gift of US$10,000 towards your noble organization, Our Planet. Theirs Too. With lots of love, praises and prayers for your success, in God’s Mercy.”“Dear Aylam, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to you the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for passionate activism, constantly striving to safeguard precious animal lives. This Award is presented in recognition of your visionary, altruistic benevolence, advocating for a vegan world where all beings share our bountiful planet in Divine bliss.”
