“The Noble Wilds”: Exploring Supreme Master Ching Hai’s (vegan) International Best Seller, Part 5 of 5

“The Noble Wilds”: Exploring Supreme Master Ching Hai’s (vegan) International Best Seller, Part 5 of 5

One of “The Noble Wilds” cameramen now shares another touching story from when Master lived in the mountains. "That day, Master felt very agitated and suffocated, as if She was inside a prison. Master was working, but She was connected with a certain being, and that feeling could not let Master relax or be calm. Master called me in and told me: 'Go to the back of the house and check around to see if something was going on. I feel like something not good is happening close to our house.' I immediately took a flashlight and went to check every corner of the garden around the house. When I went to the back of the mountain, I found that a pregnant female mountain goat had fallen into a stone pit nearby. And perhaps she had been trapped in the pit for many hours already and had tried very hard to get out but to no avail. Therefore, she looked very tired. I hurried back to inform Master of the situation, and She immediately went to the scene. Master talked a lot to comfort the female mountain goat so that she could be calm and not so afraid. Seeing that the goat’s belly was very big, Master thought the goat was pregnant with her baby inside. Master brought water and food to the female mountain goat so that she could eat and rest. And Master talked to her. In the meantime, we contacted the veterinarian and other help to come to rescue and check the goat’s wellness. And as Master suspected, the goat was indeed pregnant. After rescuing the goat, the helpers found a farmer who lived nearby and wanted to take care of the female mountain goat. We heard that the goat later gave birth to her baby safely. Master didn’t forget to tell us to go shopping and buy food along with the necessary materials to offer to that farmer to make it easy for them to take care of the doe for a while. After the goat was rescued, Master then said: 'I feel light now. I didn’t know why that pressure made me feel so heavy. And now, after knowing the problem has been resolved, I feel relaxed and do no longer have that kind of feeling from before.' From this event, I realized that even if Master was extremely busy – especially at that time, with Supreme Master Television, Master had to work very hard and always had to stay up all night with no time to rest – but Master could still hear and perceive the cry for help from beings everywhere and around Her. So we can see that Master’s love radiates everywhere. Being connected to all beings, be it the leaf, the blade of grass, or the animals, big and small, Master cares for all."

How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas

All the social entrepreneurs featured in David Bornstein’s book “How to Change the World” are people with inventive and constructive ideas that help to solve a specific problem in society. In the author’s word “what business entrepreneurs are to the economy, social entrepreneurs are to social changes.” They are driven, creative individuals who question the status quo, exploit new opportunities, refuse to give up, and remake the world for the better.

“Conversations with God”: An Open Experience to Sincere Seekers

For the past two decades, American author Neal Donald Walsh has dedicated his work to share his precious experience of the spiritual realm with the world. His efforts were launched in 1995 with the publication of "Conversations with God Book I An Uncommon Dialogue." Neal’s fascinating story of ascension began during the lowest point in his life. He wasn’t able to find satisfaction in anything - whether it was with work, his emotions, or just personality. But all that was about to change.

Nature’s Healing Power: Forest Therapy with Clemens Arvay (veg advocate), Part 1 of 4

One of the pioneers of forest therapy is Austrian biologist and author Clemens G. Arvay. His work centers on the relationship between humans and nature. Devoted to forest medicine, Clemens Arvay examines the health effects of the forest on our bodies as well as our minds. Today we are very honored to have Clemens Arvay on Supreme Master Television, as he shares how his relationship with nature began.“Forest medicine, or forest therapy, is an approach where one integrates, very deliberately, an experience of nature with a therapeutic concept to treat both physical and psychological problems. Because the forest is full of bioactive substances. You could say it is an outright pharmacy of active substances. And we do know this: These substances that come from the trees, from the humus, from the roots, from other plants, also from soil organisms; they are very important for our immune function, for our heart health, for our nervous system, and for many other parts of the body. Even at the cellular level, they actually have a regenerative and healing effect. There are studies that show, for example, that people who are clinically diagnosed with depression, benefit greatly from walking in the forest.”“In my opinion, the combination of water and forest is especially successful, because the depth of the lake – for example, the peace and quiet that the lake radiates – combines with the effect of nature’s greenery. There is also a study that shows that, for example, children suffering from asthma, up to four months of age, experience a significant improvement in their symptoms when they have been able to take a short or two-week curative stay at a waterfall.”“The immune defense of the trees also seems to be known to our immune system. It also reacts to the terpenes of the forest by strengthening its immune defenses. Actually, we also breathe in the soil microbes, because they are stirred up and we swallow them down, and they become part of our intestinal ecosystem. They also have proven to have a significant effect on our immune system. They train our immune system, they improve it.”

“The Moneyless Manifesto: Live Well, Live Rich, Live Free” – Interview with Mark Boyle, Part 2 of 3

“The Moneyless Manifesto: Live Well, Live Rich, Live Free” – Interview with Mark Boyle, Part 2 of 3

As we continue our interview with the progressive author, Mark Boyle shares more about his current lifestyle, as well as his most recent book, “The Way Home: Tales from a Life Without Technology.” “In recent years, I’ve moved back to Ireland, and I’ve begun living without technology. From that point onwards, the day changes depending on the weather, depending on my mood, depending on how I’m feeling, what my body wants to do. And I think having no phone, having no email, is a real help in that, in that there’s no distractions. “We talk too much these days. So stopping talking for the week really made me go inwards and kind of think.” “If you look at wild animals, they’re very alert. Like, they’re got shorter lives, but they live for every single moment. I just think when you, when any of us, are at our peak, and when we’re feeling fully tapped into source, like when we’re connected to all living things, I think there’s going to be more tendency towards beauty in that, with that connection.”

“The Lives of Animals”: A Powerful Discussion on the Ethical Treatment of Animals

“The Lives of Animals”: A Powerful Discussion on the Ethical Treatment of Animals

“Animals can’t speak for themselves. It’s up to us to do it.”– Dr. J.M. Coetzee “The Lives of Animals” is a short novel written by South African-born Dr. John Maxwell Coetzee, or J.M. Coetzee, a novelist, linguist, essayist, activist, and translator. Dr. J.M. Coetzee has been acclaimed internationally and received many awards for his work, including the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2003, as well as two Booker Prizes. A strong advocate for the animal rights movement, John Coetzee is vegetarian. He is also a patron of Voiceless, an Australian non-profit animal protection organization. In 2008, he wrote to “The Irish Times” newspaper to oppose the use of vivisection on animals at Trinity College in Dublin, saying: “There is no good reason — in fact there has never been any good reason, scientific or pedagogical - to require students to cut up living animals.” “The Lives of Animals,” published in 1999, is a short novel which began as a Tanner Lecture on Human Values at Princeton University. “The Lives of Animals” is a powerful speech about the need for a change in consciousness in human attitudes and practices regarding animals. Dr. J.M. Coetzee tells the story of a famous fictional novelist named Elizabeth Costello. She is speaking at the fictitious Appleton College in Waltham, where her son, John Bernard, is an assistant professor of astronomy and physics. Elizabeth Costello presents various points of view on the moral status of animals. She focuses on the fact that animals, like humans, have bodies with feelings and senses. On the basis of this similarity, animals should be given the same rights as humans. Elements of philosophy, literature, and deep human conviction unite in this prized literary work, as Dr. J.M. Coetzee uses this debate format to present his own beliefs on an ethical reorganization of human relationships with animals.

"The Moneyless Manifesto: Live Well, Live Rich, Live Free" – Interview with Mark Boyle, Part 3 of 3

Let us find out more about Mark Boyle’s inspiring story as we continue our interview with the progressive author. “I started in 2008. I gave up money. Then, in 2016, I quit technology. I basically gave up the products of everything I was campaigning against in my environmental work. In 2006, I set up a project called Freeconomy, which, at the time, was the biggest skill-sharing website in the world.” “The first book, ‘The Moneyless Man’ was more of a story of my experiences of living without money, and some tips. The second book, actually, ‘The Moneyless Manifesto’ is more of a practical guide to living in this way. So that’s completely full of the tips. So this book here, ‘The Way Home: Tales from a Life Without Technology,’ it’s kind of a little bit like the first book in that it’s more of a story. It recounts the tales, the observations, the conversations over farmyard gates, the things you observe, too, about life when you get rid of the distractions.”

“The World Peace Diet”: Interview with Dr. Will Tuttle (vegan), Part 2 of 4

“We’re starting to question reductionist science and religion. And I think that’s a very healthy thing. The whole idea that we live in a society where cows, and pigs, and chickens are just merely objects and matter, and pretty soon, when we do that for thousands of years, we, ourselves, become just matter. We’re taught in school that when we die, that’s it: it’s over; we’re just a physical body. And that’s a mentality that destroys any hope that we have at a deep level for inner peace and for harmony with each other, because life becomes meaningless. We’re just in this meaningless universe. We’re just here to consume. It really promotes consumerism. It promotes a competition. And the deeper wisdom in the spiritual traditions, the authentic spiritual traditions, is that life is eternal, that what we are is a field of infinite and eternal consciousness. That’s our true nature. We’re expressing, perhaps through a physical body, but what we are is a being that is eternal. And the same is true for all beings. All beings are a reflection of eternal consciousness. So when we understand that at a deeper level, we have a sense of respect for animals and for each other, because we see beyond just this material level.” “So the deep healing that’s happening, I think, with the vegan revolution, is that we’re beginning to connect spirituality with our food, to see that when we pay other people to imprison and kill animals, it’s not only harming the people who are doing the work, the animals, the hungry people who could be fed, but it’s harming ourselves, and it’s reducing our spiritual sensitivity. And the whole idea is to create a society that reflects spirituality and our true nature. And that means, essentially, a religion that is not reductionistic, that is more holistic, a science that is more holistic, that sees the interconnectedness of everything and is not trapped in this prison of reductionism and materialism. And I think when we look deeply into the mystical traditions, even in the West, we can see in the teachings of Jesus, and some of the other deep teachings, that there is this kernel.” “So, it’s part of our human heritage. It’s something that we can, as human beings, we can tap into this wisdom, and we can awaken it within ourselves. And that’s the beautiful thing.”

“The World Peace Diet”: Interview with Dr. Will Tuttle (vegan), Part 3 of 4

“We’re eating vibrations when we eat food because there is a reality beyond just the physical reality.” “The Chinese tradition, for example, there’s a word ‘Qi,’ which means energy. And the whole idea is that it’s the Qi in nature and in our bodies that we have to keep in harmony. In the Indian tradition, the word is ‘Prana,’ or energy, and the mother in these cultures in India and in China consciously cooks the food for her family with love and with mindfulness, because the teaching is very wise. It’s a very wise teaching, to put the energy of love and caring into the food, because that’s what we’re really eating. That’s what really nurtures the body.” “So, it’s important for us to eat foods mindfully and with joy and with gratitude, but also to prepare them that way and also to gather them that way. We can create an agriculture based on sustainability where we’re growing in harmony with the Earth.” “We can work in harmony with nature and grow foods that naturally nourish our body. When we grow foods with love, the plants feel that and the plants respond. And this is the new frontier for agriculture. It’s actually ancient wisdom that’s been suppressed in our society. But when we treat the plants with love and awareness, they create beautiful, healing foods for us. “So that’s why moving to a plant-based way of eating is the most healing thing we can do, and in the physical level of our body, the most healing thing we can do for our society. Because then we’re beginning to create economic systems and cultural systems based on abundance – that we can feed everyone on a fraction of the land, that we can save trees. It’s well understood by biologists. They estimate over a hundred trees every year are saved by people moving to a plant-based way of eating. So, we can save trees and water, and help the climate, and oceans, and rainforests. All these things are interconnected. And when we move to a plant-based way of eating, we naturally heal these problems.”

“Animalkind”: Remarkable Discoveries with Ingrid Newkirk (vegan), Part 2 of 3

“When we were children, many of us read stories and we watched cartoons of animals who had mythological, wondrous superpowers. And what “Animalkind” does is it sets out to show us that real animals, not mythological ones, do have superpowers. We don’t have to go into space to look for intelligent forms of life. They’re all around us, right here on Earth. More is the pity that we ignore their feelings, their intelligence, and we make them into shoes, or snacks.” Continuing our interview, Ingrid Newkirk speaks about how much research has been put into “Animalkind” and what has been achieved for the animals. “They fascinate me. So you learn these things through research, but the talents of animals, I was always collecting their amazing journeys; that they have 300 million sense receptors in their noses to our maybe six to eight million, that they can find their way home in mysterious ways, across a country, across a continent, across an ocean. They can sense things that we will have never been able to sense. How wonderful! What examples they are for us!” In 2019, a new whole-body model frog, called SynFrog, was simulated by PETA and SynDaver. Already used in American high schools and middle schools as an educational tool, SynFrog has abolished the need to traumatically dissect real animals. PETA is always doing amazing things, leading the world in animal protection. Ingrid Newkirk now shares some of the stories that have touched and inspired her. “Well, there are so many. And I hear emails, we get mail, people are always telling us, ‘I picked up one of your magazines, the “PETA Global Animal Times,” and it changed my whole life.’ That is what keeps me going, that’s what I think influences other people.”

“The Noble Wilds”: Exploring Supreme Master Ching Hai’s (vegan) International Best Seller, Part 2 of 5

One of the “The Noble Wilds” cameramen recalls another instance when Master communicated with a swan who had been chasing the geese away from Amoura Lake. ‟ I remember when Master first called the swan, he came swimming to Her, stopping at a distance of a few meters and staying there, still, for all the time that Master communicated with him. He showed no sign of fear, but of interest. It felt like an exchange, different from our worldly communication – a to and fro of words, more like when you communicate with a dear friend, and it’s about what is happening, what is felt between the lines, the unspoken words, the pictures that arise. From that day on, the swan stopped chasing the geese on the lake. The geese came back and made their nests on that same lake." Master also met Pitu and Sai, a swan couple who made a nest together. ‟ Pitu, I brought you some bread again, honey. You’re a good girl. You’re a very diligent mum-mum. And you’re a vegetarian! So I have to serve you because you’re good-good." ‟The swans, usually, when their babies are just hatched, they are very protective about their babies. But in front of Master, it was not that case. It was like they trusted Her, and that’s how She could get very close to her" ‟Master told me: ‛This swan family consists of beings who came down here from a higher realm.’ According to Master, they were from the Fourth Level Realm. Master said that they are very pure and were always able to connect with Master. Whenever they talked to Master, they always gave Her important messages regarding this world. They loved Master very much. They said that because in this world, Master is very lonely and suffering a lot of pressure and pain from human beings’ karma. They said they wanted to come down here to be close to Master in order to encourage, protect, and take care of Master. When the lady Pitu (female swan) was hatching her eggs, Master pitched a tent nearby in order to look after her and observed the eggs every day as the beautiful and darling cygnets were preparing to come into the world."

“Why Vegan?” Interview with Anna Bonifert (vegan), Part 2 of 2

“Why Vegan?” Interview with Anna Bonifert (vegan), Part 2 of 2

“This is Kitti. She is about two and a half years old. She was rescued from a small garden, where she was bred to be sold, and then used for her eggs, and at the end she would have been slaughtered. I had a rescued chicken before Lotti, and we wanted to get a companion for Lotti, so we got Kitti.” “It happened that Lotti became very sick and died in the summer, and Kitti could not really get over Lotti’s death. And that is why eventually she became an indoor chicken. When Lotti was very sick, she was sitting on the sofa for many weeks, and Kitti was sitting with her and did not leave her side. First, people would not even believe how sensitive these little beings are.” “She was sitting beside Lotti, and she did not leave for many days; she only ate what I took there for her. She was cleaning Lotti’s feathers because Lotti could not do it for herself anymore. And it was the saddest thing when we finally buried Lotti. Kitti would not leave the sofa.” “I would like to write an article about how many empty gardens there are. When I take my dogs here for a walk, I see a lot of nice gardens, and they are so empty. And each one of those could house three to four chickens, two geese, and a couple of cats. This way everybody could adopt animals, and life would be much more beautiful.” “By the way, I have a very important lecture, which is for the vegans. It is called ‘Being at Peace with a Non-Vegan World.’ You can watch it on YouTube. It is about how not to make war with each other. Because conflict never really has any winner. In my opinion, it is very important that we turn towards non-vegans with help instead of making them feel guilty or being angry at them.” “How could we not be angry about all the things that people do to animals? But this anger does not bring the world forward. We need to work on it inside, so we don’t communicate out of anger, but rather out of love and help.”

Nature’s Healing Power: Forest Therapy with Clemens Arvay (veg advocate), Part 2 of 4

Nature’s Healing Power: Forest Therapy with Clemens Arvay (veg advocate), Part 2 of 4

We now continue our interview with Clemens Arvay, as he examines the health effects of the forest on our bodies as well as our minds. “The bioactive substances of the trees, they have proven to be effective not only for our immune system, but also for our heart health. For example, they cause a substance called DHEA, dehydroepiandrosterone, to be increasingly produced in the adrenal cortex. And this is a protective substance for the heart that has been proven to keep our blood vessels elastic and can thus protect against coronary heart disease and heart attacks.”He now shares with us some exercises that we can do in the forest to benefit from its health-enhancing powers. “These exercises are full-body breathing exercises where the whole body opens up and closes again when you exhale. And all of this in combination with smooth, elegant movements, which then also activates our cardiovascular system, is the best way to come into contact with the stimuli of nature and make ourselves receptive to them. Basically, however, in order to enjoy the positive effects of the forest, one does not have to do any special exercises. You can also walk in the forest, relax, do sports in the forest, meditate in the forest, or do autogenic training and other relaxation exercises, etc. So there are numerous studies that show that just the sight of nature, the sight of the forest, of other landscapes, has an effect on our nervous system which improves our defenses and also our self-healing rate.”Clemens tells how the forest is a perfect place for meditation. “You can meditate anywhere in the forest, of course. This, for example, is the perfect place for meditation. Atop this tree trunk, and there is the sky, the treetops, with open eyes, or with your eyes closed. The interesting thing is that meditation in the forest with open eyes works especially well, easier than in a room, because, as has been proven, the impressions of nature increase alpha wave activity. So I would recommend to everyone to meditate according to their own mood and desire, or to do a walking meditation, where you concentrate on the forest path, in the fashion of the flow experience.”

“Animalkind”: Remarkable Discoveries with Ingrid Newkirk (vegan), Part 1 of 3

A well-known organization which promotes veganism and the banishment of fur is the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA. The president and co-founder, Ingrid Newkirk, is a Shining World Compassion Award recipient. PETA has adhered to a simple principle since its inception, “Animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.” This amazing organization inspires millions of people across the world. In January 2020, Ingrid Newkirk and bestselling author Gene Stone co-authored the book: “Animalkind: Remarkable Discoveries about Animals and Revolutionary New Ways to Show Them Compassion.” Today we are especially honored to have Ingrid Newkirk take time out of her incredibly busy schedule to speak with us about this book. “It’s my pleasure, because of course I’ve long followed Supreme Master, and I think Her videos and Her books are the greatest educational tools.” “Well, “Animalkind” came out for PETA’s fortieth anniversary, and I thought it was time to have a new, big book that explained some of the things we’ve learned about animals in recent years. We didn’t know about low frequency radio waves, for example, for years and years, millennia. And yet, birds can detect low frequency radio waves and navigate by them. So I wanted to write something that said, ‘Here they are, with amazing ability, and then here’s what you can do to make sure that they don’t suffer needlessly.’” “We have to remember, of course, that animals are so special. They don’t spoil the environment the way that we do. Those things alone should make us think twice about what we do to them.” “And the root cause of all our problems is greed and prejudice. We’re disrespectful of the rainforest and all who live in there. The disrespect comes from when you look at the live market. That we’re all in this together. I am you, only different, but not different in any important way.”

"Ethics Into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement" – Interview with Dr. Peter Singer, Part 2 of 3

In this series, we are very honored to have Dr. Peter Singer with us to share more about his book, "Ethics Into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement." “Henry Spira was always concerned to try to reduce the oppression of the strong against the weak. He was always on the side of the oppressed. Those most in need of help. And I think if we follow that example, ...then I think that’s a very good guide for how we should act in the world.” Dr. Singer emphasizes that all beings are entitled to have rights; we should not limit such sanctions to only those who understand what the concept of “rights” means. “And similarly, it should not mean that nonhuman animals don’t have rights. We should not think of rights as only for humans. These are rights that all sentient beings should have to the extent that they can benefit from them. So, these are not really human rights. These are rights that we think should go to all beings who can benefit by the protections that they offer. And that’s why they should not be limited to members of our species.”

Nature’s Healing Power: Forest Therapy with Clemens Arvay (veg advocate), Part 4 of 4

Clemens Arvay’s most recent books address the current COVID-19 pandemic. “We Can Do Better” is about the environmental and social problems that led to the COVID-19 crisis. “COVID-19 Vaccines: Hope or Risk?” is a science-based book on the problems and open questions about vaccines against SARS-CoV-2. Both became bestsellers immediately after publication.In “Biophilia in the City,” Clemens mentions how to bring the healing forces of nature into our cities. “Respect for the trees and for the animals that live in the forest and in nature; that we go there with the feeling that we should also learn something from nature and walk through nature with dignity, and that we are aware that we are not the only species on this planet; that there are many species that we have endangered through our lifestyle, that we have taken away their habitat. And it is not only about our health; it is also about the health, and life, and rights, of other species.”Clemens shares with us his experience of creating music in the forest, surrounded by the animals. “Forest music combines the effects of the forest, the relaxing effect and the creativity-enhancing effect of the forest, with music. Also, we are more creative in the forest. It is a wonderful experience when the frogs or the birds join in, and to make music in a group, or sometimes even alone in the forest, is a very moving experience.”Clemens tells us what is, for him, the most important message of the forest. “For me, the most important message of the forest is really that we appreciate diversity, that we recognize that we are part of this precious diversity. Biodiversity, ecology only works through diversity, not through making everything the same. Like this, everyone can be their authentic selves and appreciate their otherness, their individuality – for me, this is a very important message of the forest. In this context, the message of nature is also that you are OK the way you are.”

“Animalkind”: Remarkable Discoveries with Ingrid Newkirk (vegan), Part 3 of 3

“We’re always learning something. Just the other day, we saw where some whales were actually rescuing seals from orcas. And so we find out all of these things, and we think, ‘Gosh, they’re really just like us, except they have superpowers that we don’t understand.’ ”“The relationship at the moment between humankind, this human supremacist attitude we have, and the rest of the animals – because we are just one animal among many, but we’re all here together – is not as it should be. And we are all neighbors; we should all be friends, we should all be colleagues, if you will. But what we need to do is just show respect, understanding, consideration, and allow everybody to be themselves. Because each individual has their own group, their own culture, their own language.” “Our strength is that we work at the grassroots. We know the power of the consumer, that every individual is important in this struggle to have the animals recognized and respected. And so, when we educate the man at the bus stop, the woman buying groceries, the lawyer, the student, they are the force that will change legislation. Legislation is the last thing to change.”PETA has achieved many remarkable milestones. In 2010, PETA went undercover in laboratories, releasing alarming facts that resulted in Utah legislators conclusively voting to ensure that homeless cats and dogs housed in governmental shelters are never again sold to laboratories. In 2011, PETA cited the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution for the first time to stop the slavery of nonhuman animals in captivity. The plaintiffs were five orca whales, captured and forced to perform for human entertainment.“If you have kindness in your heart, then expand it, please. So please, walk the walk with us, come on board and be an animal rights activist, even if you’re taking baby steps in that direction.”

“The Noble Wilds”: Exploring Supreme Master Ching Hai’s (vegan) International Best Seller, Part 4 of 5

“The Noble Wilds”: Exploring Supreme Master Ching Hai’s (vegan) International Best Seller, Part 4 of 5

Today, we are privileged to continue our interviews with some of the “The Noble Wilds” cameramen, who share with us their stories about the precious relationships between Master and the lovely wild animals. "I remember one time, close to Master’s house, there was a horse belonging to the neighbor. And this horse was let free to roam in the vast grassy land of the neighbor, which ran along a road that She often travelled on. Every time Master came back home in Her car, when the horse saw that, he would run alongside the car and neigh out loud, as if he wanted to say 'Hallo, Master! Hallo, Master!' It was a beautiful sight, and Master knew that the horse is a very good one. Master always reminded us to buy food for the animals at home as well as those in the wild whenever we went to shop; we should not forget to buy food for that horse. One time, Master got out of the car and fed the horse with apples and flavorful bread, which the horse loved. After eating the food, the horse stood there and thanked Master. Then he talked to Master for a long time. When coming back home, Master told me that the horse species is very intelligent, very brave, very loyal, and they live in a herd. Master said, 'If, in their stable, one horse fell ill, then the whole herd would not eat, because they are very worried for the sick horse. And in the old days, humans used these horses during wartime. Humans forced them to carry heavy loads such as weapons, and trained them so that they were ridden into the battle. Nowadays, it’s the same. Horses are being taken advantage of by being trained to race and serve as entertainment for humans. I (Master) don’t like this, because that is so cruel and an injustice to the horses.' Master said, 'Those horses are supposed to be free and roam peacefully in the vast grassland, such as the ones in Mongolia. Horses are supposed to eat, drink, and run freely. They are not for people to use as entertainment tools, and when they become useless, the owners will send them to the slaughterhouses. That is such an injustice and so inhumane.' So through Her words, we can see Master’s incredible love. Master understands all the animals, and She loves them. And Master’s purpose in this world, besides teaching humans to practice spiritually for liberation, is to also see us treat the animals with love, kindness, and fairness. The weak animals don’t have the capability to defend for themselves. The animals come to this world with the sole purpose to remind us of the unconditional love between animals and humans. The animals are not for us to kill and eat."

"Ethics Into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement" – Interview with Dr. Peter Singer, Part 3 of 3

"Ethics Into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement" – Interview with Dr. Peter Singer, Part 3 of 3

Continuing our interview with Dr. Singer, he shares his thoughts on adopting the compassionate plant-based lifestyle. "Well, I think perhaps the best moral decision I ever took was to stop eating animals." We are currently facing a planetary crisis. In addition to the worsening effects of global warming, human activity is depleting many of Earth’s precious resources. However, Dr. Singer believes that we can still reverse these effects if we change our own lifestyles. To close, Dr. Peter Singer shares the important role that choosing a vegan diet plays in restoring our moral well-being and taking that step to restore Earth’s stability. "I think if the world would become entirely vegan or even vegetarian, it would be a major step forwards in our ethical standing in the extent to which we were guided by ethics in our lives."

Nature’s Healing Power: Forest Therapy with Clemens Arvay (veg advocate), Part 3 of 4

Nature’s Healing Power: Forest Therapy with Clemens Arvay (veg advocate), Part 3 of 4

His book entitled “The Biophilia Effect: A Scientific and Spiritual Exploration of the Healing Bond Between Humans and Nature” was published in 2015 and became a bestseller. We are honored to have Clemens Arvay with us to explain these remarkable discoveries. “It is true that just looking at a tree through a window or in a large photo can have a positive effect on our self-healing powers. This also explains why a study going back to the 1980s showed that patients recover faster after operations if they can look at a tree, or a green area with a tree, from the hospital window. That is a very significant study.” Clemens Arvay’s book “Growing up With the Trees to the Sky,” published in 2019, is about forest therapy for children on the autistic spectrum. “And in 2014, my little son Jonny was born, and he, too, is autistic. And then I started to intensively study methods from forest therapy, from forest medicine, applying them to the topic of autism. The forest lowers the cortisol levels. This is a wonderful basis to get closer to them so that they can open up. And on this foundation, autistic children can be helped through the diversity of nature, especially sensory diversity. Autism is also a perceptual disorder, and if you train the nervous system through sensory experiences, then the cognitive development is also improved, and the whole range of problems associated with autism slowly fades into the background.” The “International Handbook of Forest Therapy,” published in 2019 and edited by renowned scientists, contains two articles by Clemens Arvay, including one on his specialist field, eco-psychosomatics. “We are part of nature, we are connected to nature, and human existence without natural habitats would be completely unthinkable. I wish that there could be a clinic just like this, where the experience of nature plays a very central part, and where people could then retreat.”
