Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Elephants and rhinos are smart, nurturing, self-aware, gentle giants who, like us, form deep family bonds. Regarded in many cultures as symbols of good fortune, wisdom, loyalty, vitality, strength, and deep spiritual divinity, they also play a key role in helping to maintain the ecosystems and rich biodiversity of the areas they inhabit. In today’s show, we are honored to speak with Mr. Rob Brandford, executive director of the pioneering family-based conservation organization, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, whose mission is to protect wildlife and create a safe and bright future in which humans and wildlife can thrive together. The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has not only been successful in rescuing orphaned elephants who have lost their families, but their care of them extends to when they are released into the wild, guarding their habitats so they may roam freely and safely. “The orphans project is the core of what we do and we've managed to return over 150 elephants to the wild with another 97 in our care right now. So that's almost 250 elephant lives saved thanks to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.” Deeply grateful for their life-saving work, Supreme Master Ching Hai presented Mr. Rob Brandford and the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust the Shining World Compassion Award and a humble contribution of 10,000 US dollars. “In God's mercy, may Heavens bestow all involved and rescued with love, protection and wellness. With Great Honor, Love and Blessings in God's Grace Supreme Master Ching Hai.” “Thank you so much. It's such an honor to receive this check. Considerable funds, a very generous donation which will empower us to be there for orphan baby elephants in need. “My message to Supreme Master Ching Hai and to the viewers of this program is essentially, please keep doing what you're doing.”

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.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: The PEEPS Foundation for Miniature Horse Rescue

Today, we travel to Wellington, Florida USA, to meet the co-founder of The PEEPS Foundation, Alex Granato. Alex, a professional hunter jumper, along with fellow professional rider Josh Dolan, established The PEEPS Foundation for the rescue of miniature horses, particularly for those with dwarfism which can lead to lifelong health problems. What started out as a two-person team has grown into a much bigger operation as they are now joined by dedicated volunteers. This is a non-profit organization whose team of volunteers provides services to various aspects of miniature horse care, which includes rescue, joint and foot care, dietary needs, general health, and adoption placement. Touched by their effort, sacrifice and volunteer work in helping to rescue miniature horses and placing them in loving homes, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai “Appreciatively present The PEEPS Foundation the Shining World Compassion Award, plus US$20,000 with lots of love, hugs and gratitude. May all involved live long, happy lives with God’s Blessing. May the beings you rescue enjoy care, love and dignity for the rest of their lives, in God’s Love.” “We’re so grateful and honored that you guys would recognize our Foundation. It really did just start as a labor of love towards horses and especially the small ones. It’s just such an honor to be recognized and get more support worldwide for what we’re doing here. I just wanted to say again, from myself and Josh Dolan and all of our animals here at The Peeps Foundation, to Supreme Master Ching Hai, we are so grateful and so thankful for Your recognition and Your donation and can’t wait to put it to good use helping these animals.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Tami Moore of Moore 2 Love Rescue

A world in which humans and animals coexist harmoniously, where the strong and capable lend a helping hand to the weak and injured, and everyone, big or small, is given a second chance at life: Such is the vision that Tami Moore has been working passionately to realize within her community of San Jose, California, where she has been rescuing animals in need for over ten years. What started with a love and passion for animals eventually grew into the Moore 2 Love Rescue, a charity involving the efforts of her entire family and members of the community. “I've always been an animal lover, and I've always wanted to do the right thing for animals. But what made me want to start the organization is I saw now with social media you get to see so many animals that are being neglected, and suffering, and don't have homes. And so that's what made me start.” “But over time it's about 350 animals, ranging from snakes to lizards to a fawn, doves, squirrels. Whatever needs to be rescued, we don't turn our back on anyone or anything.” “On a monthly basis, I spend about $400 of my own money. I use my money when I work to help the animals. We take special needs dogs too, we have deaf dogs, we've had dogs that have gone blind, we've had dogs that (have) various disabilities, three-legged, things like that, that just need that extra help and a chance.” Tami’s go-to person is her daughter Jessica, a compassionate and inspiring animal advocate, vegan and iron worker by trade. “I can't help it, I love them. They’re just pure, it's purity, and Supreme Master says the same thing. I've read some of Her books, and it's just beautiful to have someone else feel the same way and then at full force. And it's an amazing thing to receive this (award) from Her.” With gratitude and admiration for their unconditional love and benevolent deeds, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gladly present Tami Moore with the Shining World Compassion Award and US$10,000 in humble support of your caring work, with gratitude and lots of love to you, your daughter and all the volunteers, in Divine benevolence.”

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.”

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.

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

Let’s continue with part two of our show. In Agadir, a city on the southern Atlantic coast of Morocco, kindhearted Michèle Augsburger Clairet Doucet founded Sunshine Animal Refuge Agadir (SARA), which provides loving care to over 1,000 animals. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Ms. Michèle Augsburger Clairet Doucet, plus a US$15,000 humble contribution to her compassionate shelters, with all love and gratitude. May Heaven shower you and your team with love, strength, and happiness all your lives.” The next Shining World Compassion Award Laureate is an international animal welfare charity from the UK. Worldwide Veterinary Service, formed in 2003 by Dr. Luke Gamble, sends over 1,000 vital aid parcels a year valued at over £268,000 to places where they are much needed. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Warmly present the Shining World Compassion Award to Worldwide Veterinary Service, with all love and heartfelt gratitude for all you do for cherished animals in need. May your loving organization and its staff be blessed many fold, in God’s immense grace.” Founded by Brandon Arkinson, an MBA student at Ryerson University, Toronto, Moving Hope is a Canadian non-profit which provides resources for individuals experiencing homelessness. Volunteers of the organization leave hats and gloves in bags placed around the city each winter to help the less fortunate survive the cold weather. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Moving Hope, plus US$15,000 in loving support of your benevolent efforts to help ensure the well-being of fellow citizens, with much love and heartfelt gratitude. May you, your team, and those you care for be always abundantly blessed and protected by Heaven.”

Shining World Hero Award Recipients: Devoted Companions Sadie and Bella

Today we have the pleasure of visiting Mrs. Maureen Hatcher at her home in St. Augustine, Florida, where she lives with her grandson and her four-legged companions. One day, when Mrs. Hatcher was home alone with her two dogs, Sadie and Bella, she experienced a life-threatening stroke that hindered her movement. " It was a normal day and when I got out of the shower, I sat down and I blacked out on my bathroom floor. I couldn’t move. And I looked at Sadie and I said, 'I need help.' Bella managed to get out the front door, which is an instant automatic lock door. She got out and she went to my neighbors across the street and sat at her front door and barked. My neighbor came over and she came to the door and said to Sadie, 'Where's your mama?' And Sadie brought her to me." "This whole incident has led me to believe and has shown me just how smart these girls are, all dogs for that matter." "These are my babies, they're my kids. So, I'm very blessed to have them." This was not the first time that Mrs. Hatcher’s guardian angels were there to help her in her most critical moments. "Sadie, my oldest, this is the second time that she has helped me. I woke up Mother’s Day night, about 2:30 in the morning and I couldn't breathe. So I told her I needed help, to please go get Tyler. She went to his bedroom. He was asleep and she brought him to me." Touched by their loving heroic acts, Supreme Master Ching Hai joyfully presented Sadie and Bella with the Shining World Heroine Award and a thoughtful donation of US$4000. "We hereby applaud and celebrate the heroic deeds of super canines, Sadie and Bella Hatcher. May you two and your family be blessed with health and happiness in God's embrace. With gratitude, best wishes, and all my love, Supreme Master Ching Hai." "I thank Her very much for this and I'm so thrilled that She chose to recognize them, because they are my heroes.”

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: Dr. Cliff Redford (vegetarian) – A Charismatic Loving Heart

Today, we travel to Canada to meet Dr. Cliff Redford, whose Wellington Veterinary Hospital has taken care of countless animals 7 days a week for more than 20 years. Since childhood Dr. Redford, wanted to be a veterinarian, and achieved his wish by graduating in 1998 at Ontario Veterinary College. He specializes in soft tissue surgery, complicated dental procedures, internal medicines and emergency care for all animals. Dr. Redford has worked with many animals, both domesticated and wild, such as eagles, hawks, monkeys, elephants, bats, owls, porcupines, skunks, raccoons and possums. He is also a big wildlife conservation advocate and is known to live by his motto, “Be kind to animals.” Dr. Cliff’s adventures have also taken him to Jamaica, Greece and Egypt. He shared with us some of the interesting experiences he had with the animals in Jamaica and Greece. “In Jamaica, the most interesting thing was working with the giant funnel eared bats in the St Clair Caves. These bats are probably the size of a small mouse, very very small with giant, giant ears. And they were unfortunately dying off due to fungal infection called white-nose disease, a lung and sort of nostril infection. And we had to hike up the mountain, go down ropes into this cave, hike deep into the earth to find these things. The white-nose disease is a disease that’s affecting bats around the world. So they were able to use these bats in Jamaica as sort of samples to help them find the cures.” Upon learning of Dr. Redford’s wonderful deeds, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Dr. Cliff Redford, with gratitude, love and a humble contribution of US$15,000 to support this noble work.” “I also have this beautiful plaque from Supreme Master Ching Hai. It says, ‘Shining World Compassion Award from Supreme Master Ching Hai for Dr. Cliff Redford in recognition of great volunteering to provide medical care to cherish animals abroad, inspiring others to be kind and loving towards our co-inhabitants, defending and encouraging human justices and respect. With compliments and gratitude to your compassionate and benevolent commitments to save precious animal lives.’”

Shining World Invention Award Recipient: Dr. Olga Malinkewicz for Perovskite Solar Cell Technology

Shining World Invention Award Recipient: Dr. Olga Malinkewicz for Perovskite Solar Cell Technology

As a scientific researcher, inventor and entrepreneur, Dr. Malinkiewicz has developed a fabrication method that allows the printing of perovskite-based solar cell panels for a wide range of potential applications. Compared to the traditional solar cell panels that are largely made of silicon, perovskite-based panels are less expensive to produce and can be used indoors. Dr. Malinkiewicz, however, found a way to layer down the perovskite mineral in a relatively simple and straightforward manner. Her invention is based on inkjet-printing technology, in which the perovskite mineral is placed down on a substrate with precise positional control. This breakthrough allows the construction of flat panels without sophisticated instruments, which would greatly expand the applications of perovskite-based solar cells. “This invention is designed in such a way that when it is implemented in production, it will become very common, because it can be used on virtually any surface and in many different places. It can be the sole link as it is now, a traditional link, but it can also be part of a building facade. It can be part of the window. It can be an element integrated in the car. It can be a fragment of a sail. It can be a piece of clothing. It can also be a part of our electronic devices like a smart phone or a laptop.” Touched by her pioneering work on broadening the applications of the perovskite-based solar cell, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyously present Dr. Olga Malinkiewicz the Shining World Invention Award, plus a loving gift of US$21,000 for extra support for this wonderful and world protecting project, in God’s wonder. May Heavens shine on your brilliant mind with wisdom and love.” Dr. Malinkiewicz graciously thanked Master and expressed her sincere gratitude during the award ceremony. “I would like to thank immensely Supreme Master Ching Hai for this wonderful award. It is a great honor for me and great luck to be honored by Supreme Master Ching Hai.”

Shining World Compassionate-Heart Award Recipient: Monty Roberts – The Man Who Listens to Horses

Today we honor a distinguished guest from culturally rich and placid Solvang, California. Mr Monty Roberts, author of the bestselling autobiography, “The Man Who Listens to Horses,” is a world-renowned gentle horse trainer who developed humane and highly effective methods of communicating and partnering with horses, which he calls the “Join-Up” method. As Mr. Roberts explains, contrary to traditional practices, the most effective way of connecting and partnering with horses is not by inducing fear or pain, but rather, by establishing our inner calm and peace, we allow love in the form of trust and connection to flow.Mr. Robert’s incredible “Join-Up” method has been praised and enlisted by many notable horse people, including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Extending to the benefits of compassionate horse training, Mr. Robert’s work has profoundly helped people to recover from their own emotional stress and injuries through the Divine healing power of horses. Deeply touched by his wise, compassionate way of life and altruistic work, Supreme Master Ching Hai gratefully presented Mr. Monty Roberts the Shining World Compassionate-Heart Award, plus a loving contribution of US$10,000 for his precious horses’ favorite snacks. “Dear Master Ching Hai, It is my honor to accept this Shining World Compassionate Heart award from You. It is such an encouragement to me personally. And I know it will be to the world of people who appreciate animals but have not become familiar with my violence-free methods of interacting with them. When I read the original letter requesting an interview, I was happy to grant my time to Your inspiring multicultural programs. The positive stories, covering many great topics is needed in our modern lifestyle. Thank You for recognizing how much I care for the way horses are treated, and how much they should be recognized for their ability to heal us. They have been my teachers, my friends and my providers for all of my 84 years and will continue to fascinate and delight me for the balance of the years that I have on this Earth.”

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 Recipients: Ocean Futures Society and the Whale Sanctuary Project, Part 2 of 2

Our spotlight today is on the Whale Sanctuary Project. Founded in 2016, they focus exclusively on creating seaside sanctuaries in North America for cetaceans who have been rescued and need rehabilitation. In an interview at the headquarters of Ocean Futures Society in Santa Barbara, USA, we were privileged to have Mr. Charles Vinick, Director of the Project, share the goals of the organization with us. “We're looking in really three main areas in Nova Scotia on the east coast in Washington State and British Columbia on the west coast, two particularly in Nova Scotia, in towns called Sheet Harbour and Sherbrooke and in Washington State on Cypress Island, an area called Deep Water Bay. These three sites all have the physical criteria.” Charles continued by highlighting some other important points that need to be considered when they establish a sanctuary. The main purpose is to provide rescued cetaceans with an environment that enhances their well-being, and autonomy, and is as close as possible to their natural habitat. He then explained in details how they manage the sanctuaries and how they collaborate with other facilities to help our precious cetacean friends. “What we will do is create the first model sanctuary and then others can replicate that around the world so that we can make a dent in the size of the problem. And we can demonstrate that we can provide higher quality of life for these animals. And that's the intent of the project.” Charles also believes it is greatly beneficial to educate young children about the importance of protecting the cetaceans and the ocean environment.Upon learning of their noble efforts in saving the orcas and beluga whales, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly offered the Whale Sanctuary Project the Shining World Compassion Award, plus “a humble contribution of US$10,000” for their benevolent endeavor, “with love, respect and gratitude in God’s mercy.”

Shining World Vegan Journalist Award Recipient: Jane Velez-Mitchell (vegan) – Angel of Love in New Age Media

A multi-award-winning television and social media journalist as well as a long-time vegan, Ms. Jane Velez-Mitchell has been at the forefront of many headline news stories for decades. 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. She is also the author of four books, including one New York Times’ Best Seller, and a proud winner of the Emmy journalist Award. “The one thing that would reverse climate change right this second, would be for every human being to simply stop eating animals and their by-products. And we can make that happen. Your cell phone is your most powerful tool to change the world. Why? Because every single cell phone is a network, a network of people that you know. So, go live, post and share.” Ms. Velez-Mitchell campaigns tirelessly on behalf of animals and the benefits of the plant-based lifestyle. Operating beyond the reach of the world’s mainstream media, Jane Unchained has become one of the most important news outlets focusing on vegan trends, the animal rights movement, and climate change. Its inspiring and hilarious vegan cooking series, “New Day New Chef," features celebrity co-hosts and a panel of entertaining taste-testers, and is now entering season II for Amazon Prime Video. Upon hearing of Ms. Jane Velez-Mitchell’s continued devotion to saving our animal friends and sharing the vegan lifestyle, Supreme Master Ching Hai graciously offered the Shining World Vegan Journalist Award, “plus US$21,000 to lovingly support her work. With all love and best wishes in God’s eternal blessing.” "Thank You, Supreme Master. This means so much to me. I'm truly honored and humbled You inspire me, You give me strength and hope and courage to continue on until every animal is treated with respect and dignity."

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 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.”
