“The Spiritual and Karmic Aspects of the Vegetarian Diet” by Sant Kirpal Singh and Baba Sawan Singh (vegetarians), Part 2 of 2

“The Spiritual and Karmic Aspects of the Vegetarian Diet” by Sant Kirpal Singh and Baba Sawan Singh (vegetarians), Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with the reading from Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj and His beloved Master Baba Sawan Singh Ji’s book entitled, “The Spiritual and Karmic Aspects of the Vegetarian Diet.” “We have all been created by God. All of us are embodied souls. Soul is of the same essence as that of God, and God is in all of us; and we should, therefore, love one another. That is what Saint Paul taught all his life.” “If one is keen for God-realization, then one must not hurt anyone’s feelings, for heart is the seat of God. Have you ever realized that a mango seed, when embedded, gathers all the sweetness from the soil, while a pepper seed attracts all the bitterness in it? As a man thinketh, so he becomes. Nothing is good or bad in the world, but our thinking makes it so. We, like the one or the other of the seeds, draw upon impulses from the atmosphere, as suits our own mental make-up.”“A Godly person is possessed with a right mind and a right heart. He has both within and without a perfect spring of peace. His dealings are fair, open, and unquestionable. Truth springs from the very bottom of his heart. The audience is spellbound and gets a feeling of comfort by hearing him, as his utterances are drenched from the cooling effect of the loving and chaste thoughts within him, and everyone feels satisfied.”“All other Saints have said this thing in the same strain: 1. Love thy neighbor as thyself. 2. Do unto others as you would wish them to do unto you.” “The whole of the religious philosophy hangs by these two cardinal principles. If one puts before him these two golden rules, his life will surely be transformed. The person who has no element of sympathy in his heart and a human touch, is not fit to be called even a man, and he cannot know God. He who treats his enemies lovingly will disarm them in no time. Insofar as you can, try to do no injury to anyone. Be good to all and you will be at peace with yourself and be a radiating center of loving grace around you. The prayers of others, to whom you may have done good, will help you. The good thoughts of others will swarm around you with a benediction. The very idea of doing good will first affect you and will draw all good vibrations from the surrounding atmosphere.”

Tuning in to the Higher Frequency of Spiritual Wisdom: An Interview with Mr. James Bean (vegan), Part 5 of 5 - Questions and Answers with Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan)

Mr. James Bean raises two questions to Supreme Master Ching Hai during our interview. with all the respect and belief he always has for Master Wisdom. “Are we going to get through this relatively unscathed and make it to that peaceful vegan future? Is humanity moving along fast enough?” “Some work is going on, but no, it is too slow. The suffering of animals must stop, so the world can be saved. We have to protect lives by continuously promoting vegan and sustaining peace through this benevolent process and way of life. Heaven has patiently and mercifully granted humans an opportunity to help save the Earth by praying for World Vegan every Sunday, which began on February 9.” “Will we get to that outright Golden Age?” “Already, there are some achieved points. After maybe a couple of generations, our cells and our DNA will be purified and washed of all the negative influences. The traces of contamination will be gone. It’s a time to look forward to. But we must continue to pray and work hard. Living in a Golden Age is a possible reality.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan) Meets the Former Vice President of Taiwan (Formosa), Her Excellency Lu Hsiu-Lien (vegetarian), and Distinguished Guests, Part 2 of 3

Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan) Meets the Former Vice President of Taiwan (Formosa), Her Excellency Lu Hsiu-Lien (vegetarian), and Distinguished Guests, Part 2 of 3

“I could only do it with the blessing of God. I could only do it because I had the chance. Many people also wanted to do it, but they didn’t have the chance. I'm doing some different job from inside. I’m taking care of Heaven’s job. I don't mind much about the world. If you take care of heavenly work well, then the world will also change. If I take good care of it inside, the world will also be affected. The priority is inside, working with Heaven. Then the world will also be OK. (But do You feel that the world will come to an end somehow?) No. (No? You don’t believe it.) Not yet. We'll be OK. Not yet. This world would end one day. Within the Three Worlds, nothing is eternal. From the highest one, which we call Brahma God, to the Second World, to the Asura World, and our world. These four worlds are not eternal. But while we are here, we can protect it. And we can persuade people in the world that if they do good deeds and get along with each other in a kind and peaceful way, the world would last longer and be more beautiful and peaceful. It all depends on what we do.” “While we are still here, we try to bring more happiness to the world and less suffering. Then they will have time to practice spiritually. If they practice, they will go to a better place when they leave the world. Whether the world ends or not, we just make sure that we do not come to an end. (First practice well.) Yes. Cultivate yourself, manage your family, govern the country, and pacify the world. Anyways… Politicians also need to practice spiritually, otherwise, we may not be able to make a clear decision. That’s why our world is so chaotic, because many politicians do not practice well. (Yes.) They did not cultivate themselves. They are not even vegetarians. Gobbling down meat and alcohol day and night. Our body and mind cannot bear it. And when the body is not healthy and the mind is not clear, we cannot do anything well. That’s how it is. That’s why ancient sages advised us to cultivate ourselves before we can govern the country. Just like the way our vice president is cultivating herself. In the Buddhist sutras, it is said that if someone comes from a noble family with fame and fortune and practices spiritually, they must be Bodhisattvas incarnate. They are not ordinary people.”

The Reunion of Souls: Questions and Answers, Part 6 of 11

29:21

The Reunion of Souls: Questions and Answers, Part 6 of 11

I am not here to prove to you that I am good or bad. I am here to tell you that you are great, you are good, and if you follow my instructions, you will feel, you will see, you will know that you are great, you are good…You’ll feel that you are great, that you know God.You would like to ask me some questions now, or do you want to have a glimpse of Heaven? (Glimpse of Heaven.) How many “Heaven?” How many…? OK. Fine. Fine. It’s very simple. I will show you, but the work is yours. I can only show you, but you must work. I cannot work for you. It’s a little bit not very quiet here. But I have shown you. You go home and do it. You will enjoy. Enjoy. You have any question? Bring the first ones. I’m sorry because of shortness of time, but you could do this at home. Have any one of you seen some (inner Heavenly) Light at least, so quick? Yeah? Have you? Raise your hand. Oh, yeah? Thanks, that’s good. Wow! That’s good, just for two seconds. You’re quick! You’re very pure, that’s why. Very pure in such a not quiet environment and just two seconds you still can see. I told you. We can get immediate enlightenment. Some of you see some Heaven scenery, or not? Yes? Raise your hand. Yeah? That’s cool. That’s cool. Ok! Questions please!(In the last days, many false Christs will appear, (Again?) showing great signs and wonders so as to lead, if possible, even the elite astray. How, without being initiated, can one tell whether You are true or false?)You can’t. You can’t tell whether I am true or false. So it’s up to you. (Thank You.) You are welcome. Of course... but there are some little things that you can tell. For example – not because of me – if you meet a Master, you immediately feel something, or you don’t. Either you feel something good about that person or you don’t. We do have this intuition. Even sometimes we see a stranger in the street, we feel like, “Yes, she gives me good vibes. She’s lovely, she must be a good person,” and some person we just see for the first time, we feel kind of... we don’t want to talk to that person; we’re a little scared. Yes, we have this intuition. Or else, we come home and pray to God, “Please, God let me know who is the good one!” Yes? And then you follow your heart. No one else can tell you. You can only tell from the outside, but inside you cannot. Unless you go into a higher spiritual level, then you can see me, like a mirror, but from human to human standard, you cannot see anything. I am not here to prove to you that I am good or bad. I am here to tell you that you are great, you are good, and if you follow my instructions, you will feel, you will see, you will know that you are great, you are good. Forget about me. I am good or bad has nothing to do with you. Just so that you feel good, that’s all!You’ll feel that you are great, that you know God; and suppose you don’t feel like that, you can always leave. I don’t charge any money, I don’t follow you to your house, I don’t call you at all. I’ll be gone tomorrow, and you’ll be lucky to ever catch me again, so don’t worry that I am bad or good. Follow your instinct; learn to know, to remember your greatness. That’s what I am here for; not here so that you think I’m great. That’s a different question. I am here to show you that you are great. And if you want to know your greatness, then just follow my instructions; not follow me, follow my instructions.(Should our children be vegetarians [vegans], too, Master? Thanks.)Yes. Because children also have souls and they are also God, so if they wish to be, that means they’re OK. We can talk logically and reasonably, and if they want to, they can be. They should be, because children who are vegetarians (vegans) are very healthy. Look at me... I am pretty! No, no, I am kidding... I am kidding! Look at her! She’s so beautiful. She looks like a movie star and she’s a vegetarian (vegan), no? Is she not beautiful? Our fellow initiates, when they are pregnant, the babies are vegetarians (vegans) from the mothers’ wombs already. And when they are born, they’re the most beautiful babies, if you compare to other babies nearby. They are born pinky, healthy, and other children, sometimes they are born blue, and purple. Yes! Really! No, you go and take a look at the newborn babies; sometimes they’re so blue, so dark. But our children are always born pinky, healthy and cry the loudest.(This next question is playing a game of “blankety-blank,” it’s asking You to fill in the rest of the sentence. “Can You please explain what should be the aim of human life? We should meditate to achieve…?” And that’s the question.) The aim of human life is to know your Self, to know that you are God, that you’re connected with God. And we meditate in order to calm this busy-busy thinking mind, so that we can recognize the True Self behind this mind. Just like to recognize the driver, not the car. Yes, sister.(I would love to know the Truth. However, it seems strange to stop drinking wine, etc…) Oh. Is it? (Then she goes on. “…whereas all the cakes and white sugar products are as harmful. I always experienced that it is more important to have a real ‘first.’ I just want to know what to put first in every moment.”) What to put… what? (What to put first in every moment. What should be the first thing…)What is the priority? (Yes.) God is the priority! Not the wine! OK. You bargain all the time. You’d like to know God, but you like to enjoy all these poisons. I don’t know why you like wine so much. All this alcohol has been proven that they’re damaging to the brain cells. They numb your nerves; they make you less intelligent and impotent! Shh! If you like to continue drinking this kind of poison and pay a lot of hard, sweating, earned money for it, welcome! If you want to know God, forget that. It’s just a little wine compared to great Heaven and the whole universe. They are better than wine; stuff better than wine. When you meditate and you are in ecstasy, it’s better than getting drunk and hungover. Really! Next one.(Would Master please enlighten us as to the spiritual path of animals? Do domestic animals, such as cats and dogs, choose a situation in life which will assist them spiritually? Can they achieve supreme enlightenment?) They will in their own time. Animals are great friends of man. Sometimes a dog, a cat can teach us wonderful, unconditional love lessons. So, they have chosen to be animal, just for us, for our sake. We should love them, assist them, and take care of them. And whatever, whenever they attain enlightenment, that’s their own choice. They will get there whenever they want to. They know.(I have always talked to Quan Yin by talking to the stars, but I always believed I was talking to a goddess, as I am a spiritual person, not religious. What is the difference?)What is the difference between a religious and a spiritual person? Is that right? (Yeah. She believes she is talking to a goddess, and asking, “I’m a spiritual person, not religious. What is the difference?”) I don’t … (Compared to the Quan Yin.) I don’t really know. I think we look in the dictionary and see what’s the difference. To me, a spiritual person is the one who aspires to know his origin. And not only aspiring, but knowing also. Experiencing his own divine quality, his own God inside. That is a true spiritual, or even, true religious person.(What can I do to keep up meditation daily, when there’s not enough waking hours in a day?)Cannot wake up? (Yes.) Yes, me too! Nobody likes to wake up when we’re snug in bed, but we have to try. Suppose if you have to get up to work, then you must. You must! For like, $2,000 per month, you wake up every morning... five o’clock, yes? For God, you don’t wake up! So what am I to do? So make your own priority choice.We can wake up a little earlier than usual, and then get used to it. For example, it’s too early to get up at 3 o’clock, don’t wake up at 3 o’clock. Normally, you wake up to work at 5 o’clock, OK, then wake up like 20 to 5 the first day, or 10 to 5 even, or even 5 to 5. And the next day or next week, 10 to 5, yes? Get yourself used to the idea and reward yourself abundantly. Tell yourself, “OK, if you wake up early today, I’m going to give you a double bagel,” for example, or “one more cup of cafe late.” Whatever your mind loves to have, reward it. Reward yourself. You must love yourself also, because, let’s face it, we have only one, this physical body, and we are so tired sometimes. We work so hard, 8 hours, 10 hours a day, just to keep this “machine” running, and then we have to attend to, sometimes, other work like family, wife, children, and parents, friends, neighbors, relatives, etc. We really are very hard demanding on this physical body. So, of course, if you cannot wake up in the morning for meditation, forgive yourself. Don’t be too hard on yourself, but train yourself slowly. Watch TV less, sleep a little earlier, so you can get up better, or whatever the activities you used to do too much before, in order to pass the time when you are bored, use that time for knowing God. It is a matter of organization. I am also pretty busy you don’t believe it. I sit here looking pretty, but I’m very busy, too. And it’s hard for me also to get up early sometimes. But you have to put an alarm clock, yes? Sometimes it’s like that.In the old Indian tradition, there was one saint, he wakes up all right, but he sleeps sitting instead of lying, so it’s just the same. Our people are the same. You know! When you go to our retreat or they come to my house, they sit there look very good but.... yeah! They sit any fashion, you know. So, never mind, you try your best. That’s what counts. So that person, the saint in India, you know what he did? He had long hair like me and he tied his hair onto the ceiling or something. Yes, yes, yes! Yes, I am not kidding! And then he became a Master because he tried so hard. He tied his hair to the ceiling, so whenever he nodded, “Oh! OK...” Yes! Yes! I am not saying that you should grow your hair long or do that, but you find your way, yes?Like, we wake up early and... In the beginning, I had to put, like, ice water next to me, a flask of ice, and then when the alarm rang, I reached for the ice and threw it on my face, and “Ohh! Blaaah!”– the ice comes through your clothes and everything and you just have to jump out of bed. But don’t do it... just don’t do it, I mean, you have your own ways. But when you want to do something, you can. Believe me, you can, because you are God. There’s nothing impossible with God. Just remember that you have God inside you and that no one else is there. Don’t listen to the mind and the brain. It’s just a computer. The mind tells us, “Oh...sleep...sleep... sleep is good for you.” But that’s not God’s voice! God is behind that.(Do You ever meet with Quan Yin?) Oh, yes. Yes. Why not? You can see all the Saints from the past if you want to, but you have to work hard, tie your hair to the ceiling! Now you know why many yogis in India have long hair.(As we are spiritual beings having a human experience, we are perfect in our expression of life; we are already divine. If God is everything without duality, then everything we are, everything we do is an expression of God. So do we need then to do nothing just to be without reward?)That’s fine. That’s fine. That’s fine, too. As I said earlier, you chose to be what you want to be. But there are many aspects of God; God is the total sum of our being. So, if we want to say that we are God, of course we are already God, that is for sure, but then go back to the finger, see? Suppose we say, “OK, I am God now. I don’t need to do anything.” It’s fine! But then we go out and steal, or we do things that are not proper or we harm other beings, because we say every expression is God anyway, so we don’t try to be better, we don’t try to represent ourselves in other aspects of divine quality and just concentrate on one point and do the physical things. And in that case, even though we are God, we have not the whole complete quality, we have not expressed ourselves in the whole, complete way. So that is the only difference.Once we know the whole thing, the total sum of God, we act differently. We don’t just look at the finger, we know the whole being, and that is different. If I just sit here and look at the finger, I look different, “My God! Nice finger!” But when I know my whole being, then I stand up, I walk, you see? I sing, I embrace people, I greet people with love, I write poetry, I play music, I go swimming – I do all kinds of things which a whole being would do. But if I keep looking at one finger only, I still have the whole being here, but it’s useless. See what I mean? That’s the difference. That’s the difference between knowing the whole being of God and just saying, “OK, whatever I do is God anyway.” But, of course, you are divine already, so you choose what you are doing. I am just answering your question.(Yes. Next question is in two parts. Where in the Himalayas did You learn Your spiritualism?) Oh, that is a secret. (What guided You to go there?) My inner Self. I was blind, blindly in love with God. I would not advise you to go there, because you might not come back. It is very dangerous, places where I went. I have talked about that sometime before, I remember. So maybe you just search out for those tapes or something, and listen. OK?(Dear Master Ching Hai, would You please explain ghosts to us?) Ghosts? (And then asks do You believe in them?) Oh, I’m scared. Do you see ghosts? Anyone of you see ghosts? Raise your hand. What do they look like? (Great.) Great? Then they are not ghosts; they’re angels. The person who asks means the ghost who are scary, right? OK. There are different levels of life as I have told you before. Even us, we are also part human, part ghost. But we only know that when we die. Actually, there are just different levels of living. For example, here we live as human beings; there are others that live as worms and ants. And in other levels of consciousness, they don’t live with this physical body; they live with an astral body. And some people who die live within that astral body which looks exactly like his body right now. So sometimes he thinks he’s still a human being, I mean a physical being, so he comes and talks to people. He tries to throw tantrums because nobody listens to him. Nobody even knows that he exists. He goes through people, goes through walls and he talks to everyone and he tries to get back his possessions and his loved ones. And he was very frustrated sometimes, and he scares people. He uses all his spiritual might to manifest in something, and that’s when we say we see ghosts. Otherwise, there’s nothing scary about ghosts. And these so-called ghosts, after some time, they will realize that they’re so-called “dead,” meaning they don’t have a physical body anymore, and nobody understands them anymore. Then they will begin to also turn inward or seek help from angels, or some beings will go and take care of them. It’s like police in our planet. And then they will be gone. Gone somewhere they belong. Like maybe go to Heaven, maybe go to lower heaven or higher Heaven, depends on their merit and their understanding at that time.(How many times do we need to come to this planet before we become enlightened? And where do we go when we are not in a physical body?) We come as many times as we choose to come. For example, some people who are supposed to die already, but then some relatives are crying and loving and needing them so much, they come back to physical life immediately. That’s “reborn,” that’s resurrection. And sometimes we go to Heaven already, but we like to have the human being’s experience again for our own pleasure or our own development, and sometimes we come back because some loved ones are still there, calling us and wanting us to be with them, and we choose to come back.And, if we have not realized God in the physical body, sometimes we choose to come back, so that we can realize God on a higher level. If we are not in a physical body, we can go in many different places; we are more free. Free, free, free, like birds; we can fly anywhere in an instant! For example, if I die and I want to go to Germany, we don’t need an airplane, just one thought, We'd be there right away. One second, one instant, and that is the freedom of not having a body.But nevertheless, if we have not trained ourselves during our lifetime to think highly, to remember our higher Self, then when we die, we leave the physical body and we just linger on a lower level of ourselves without realizing the higher aspects of the Divine Self. So we might linger there and then we get bored and then we come back to the physical body again, or we might be lucky, meeting some spiritual friend and then we inch our way up, or we go back to the physical body and get a teacher and learn properly and then go “bzzt!!” So, it depends on what we chose to do in this physical life; we will be at that level when we die.

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 2 of 4 - The Gift of Being Human

15:29

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 2 of 4 - The Gift of Being Human

In this episode, we will see how we should be grateful for our human body, as it offers a rare opportunity for spiritual advancement. Supreme Master Ching Hai also spoke of the priceless value of the human body in a lecture in Kaohsiung, Taiwan (Formosa) on May 9, 1989. “We are such small humans, yet the whole universe is within us. Can you believe it? Therefore, it’s correct to say that the human body is very precious. If we don’t know that we are so precious, it would be too pitiful. In the Bible, it is said, ‘What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?’”Universal White Brotherhood: The Two Paths and The Ascending Way. “Pay attention to the smallest flicker of Light to find the unknown paths of Life. Hidden within are the Divine joys, descending from Heaven. The Earth is a place of Divine treasures, from which you benefit daily.”Spiritualism: The Body Is the Temple By Edgar Cayce. “Thy body is indeed the temple of the living God. Where in thy body, then, is the door through which - when ye open it - the Christ may come in, the Christ-Conscience? He is the Son of righteousness. He is the Sun of thy soul. He is the Maker, and thus through that awareness ye may make thy whole purpose one with Him - in thy sincerity.”Confucianism Analects: “Confucius said, ‘A gentleman with lofty ideals and a man of benevolence will never seek to live at the expense of injuring their virtue. They will even sacrifice their lives to preserve their virtue.’”Sant Mat Spiritual Gems By Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji (vegetarian): “His is a difficult task, for He gets no support from parents. The parents (Kal and maya) do not wish the entrant (Soul) to enter the University of Spirit (Tenth Gate or Third Eye) – what to say about contacting Nam. The parents (Kal and maya) allure him with easy temptations and create worries, sickness, and other adversities to confound his intellect. Their function is to keep the soul away from Nam. Slowly the entrant grasps the new position, and slowly the entrant realizes the true worth of his parents. Slowly he begins to dissociate from them, and slowly he takes the Guru as his real benefactor, and slowly he leaves the nine portals and makes his approach towards the tenth – to make contact with Nam and work on Nam.”

Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Selection from Book 4, Part 1 of 2

Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Selection from Book 4, Part 1 of 2

Marcus Aurelius was a Roman emperor of the 2nd century, also known as the last of the Five Good Emperors, after Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, and Antoninus Pius. Marcus Aurelius wrote personal notes and ideas on Stoic philosophy and spirituality as a source of guidance for himself. These notes, originally written in medieval Greek, formed a collection titled “Meditations.” Today we’ll read a segment from Marcus Aurelius’ “Meditations,” in which a very practical wisdom is simply put for everyone to understand and benefit from. “No random actions, none not based on underlying principles. People try to get away from it all – to the country, to the beach, to the mountains. You always wish that you could too. Which is idiotic: you can get away from it anytime you like. By going within. Nowhere you can go is more peaceful - more free of interruptions - than your own soul.”

Selections from "Thus Spake the Holy Mother (vegetarian)," Part 2 of 2

12:20

Selections from "Thus Spake the Holy Mother (vegetarian)," Part 2 of 2

The Holy Mother is considered an uplifter of souls who maintained communion with God at all times, even while engaging in various daily activities. To her disciples, she was a teacher who removed their doubts, a mother whose loving kindness brought comfort, and a Divine presence that assured them of spiritual liberation. We now would like to share with you the uplifting sayings of Sri Sarada Devi, through an excerpt from “Thus Spake The Holy Mother.” “Spiritual practice means to keep the mind steady at His lotus feet and to be absorbed in His thoughts. When the desire arises in the mind to know anything, then pray to Him alone in a lonely place with tears in your eyes. He will remove all dirt and sorrow from your mind and will make you understand everything. Always discriminate. Try to realize that the outside object which is attracting your mind is impermanent, and turn your attention to God. Always try to do the Lord’s work and at the same time try to practice Japa (repeating holy mantras or God’s name) and meditation.”

Holy Laws on Protecting the Animals - Selection from “In Front of the Blind" by Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar (vegan), Part 2 of 2

15:41

Holy Laws on Protecting the Animals - Selection from “In Front of the Blind" by Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar (vegan), Part 2 of 2

Today, we’ll learn more from Mr. Keisar’s book “In Front of the Blind,” or “Velifnei Iver Hashalem.” “Rabbi Avraham Saba: ‘Based on the complete and whole view, kindness of God who is good to all of His creations; a person should realize that the purpose of the milk from an animal mother’s breast is to nourish her baby and not for the individual to do as they please.’”“Maimonides states, ‘There is no distinction between anguish experienced by a human and anguish experienced by animals; this is because the love and yearning of a mother for its offspring is not dependent upon intelligence, rather it is the inherent nature found in most creatures as it is found in man.’”“Harav Yitzchak Habanstreit: ‘One should know, aside for the fact that it is inappropriate for man to eat meat with regard to tradition, ethics, religion and wisdom; it is also unnatural because man is unfit to eat meat as is proven by the analysis of a person’s organs.’”“But this is not the case with the natural tendency towards vegetables and fruit of the tree and the like. These produce strong natural feelings and call to us in a loving way: ‘Wondrous to behold and good to eat.’ A great desire awakens in their midst to taste the fruits and eat their fresh as they were created. Is this not enough proof that these are the natural foods for a person?”

Selections from The Astral City - Chapter 6: Precious Advice

13:22

Selections from The Astral City - Chapter 6: Precious Advice

"Man is not forsaken on Earth. He is a child of God engaged in constructive work, temporarily clothed in flesh. He is a student in a meritorious school, where he must learn to raise himself up. The human struggle is his opportunity, his set of tools, and his textbook.""How childish to imagine that the mere 'ringing down of the curtain' (physical death) would settle transcendental questions of the Infinite. One life is but a single act. One body - a garment. One century - a day. One task - an experience. One triumph - an acquisition. One death - a breath of renovation. How many lives, how many bodies, how many centuries, how many tasks, how many triumphs, how many deaths are still allotted to us?" These astounding messages from the spirits via a human medium convey the message of Spiritism.Numerous books have been written that provide insights into the afterlife and the soul’s immortality. One such volume is "Nosso Lar," or "The Astral City," by Spirit André Luiz through Spiritist medium Francisco Cândido Xavier. In "The Astral City," former medical doctor André Luiz speaks from the afterlife of his awakening and healing within a spiritual society near the Earth’s surface. This story describes not only the continuation of life beyond the physical body, but more importantly how Heaven cares for each and every human soul.“The only way to spiritual balance is to open your heart to the Divine Light. If you consider the necessary effort to be an oppressive burden or see the struggle for redemption as an imposition, it is a sure sign of spiritual blindness. The more you dwell on your own painful experiences, the more you bind yourself to them. You can be sure that the same Father whom shelters and watches over you will also care for your loved ones on Earth. We should certainly regard the family as a sacred institution, but always keep in mind that it is just a small branch of the Universal Family under the loving guidance of one Divine Father.”

Selections from "The Pathway of Life" by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 1 – The Soul, Part 2 of 2

“Men frequently think that only that exists which they can touch with their hands. However, quite on the contrary, only that truly is that cannot be seen, heard or touched, what we call ‘I,’ our soul. Confucius said: The sky and the earth are great, but they have color, shape and size. But there is something in man that can think of everything and has no color, shape or size. Thus, if the whole world were dead that which is within man could of itself give life to the world.” “Each one of us is a specific individual, different from all other people: man, woman, adult, boy or girl; and in each one of these specific individuals dwells a spiritual being, the same in all of us, so that each one of us is at one and the same time an individual, John or Natalie, and a spiritual being which is the same in all.” “Some say that what we call our self is merely the body, that my reason, my soul and my love, all of these come from the body; we might with as much right assert that what we call our body is merely the food by which the body is nourished. It is true that my body is merely the transformed food that has been assimilated by my body, and that there would be no body without food, but my body is not the food. Food is requisite for the life of the body, but it is not the body. The same is true of the soul. It is true that without the body there would be no soul, yet my soul is not the body. The body is merely requisite for the soul, but the body is not the soul. If it were not for the soul, I should not know about my body. The principle of life is not in the body, but in the soul. When we say: ‘It was, or it will be, or it may be,’ we speak of bodily life. But besides the bodily life which was and will be, we know of another life, the spiritual life. And the spiritual life is not something that was, or that will be, but something that is right now. This is the real life. Happy is the man who lives this life of the spirit, and not the life of the body. Lord Christ teaches man that there is something within him that raises him above this life with its vanities, fears and passions. The man who has received the doctrine of Lord Christ shares the experience of the bird that has lived in ignorance of his wings, and suddenly realizes that it has them, and that it may soar, be free and fear nothing.”

From One Soul to Another: Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 3

28:19

From One Soul to Another: Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 3

“God has two attributes: form and formless. And even in the attribute of form, Hes has two forms. If Hes wants to materialize in this world, Hes becomes like this. All of these are God materializations. That’s why the Bible says, ‘God dwells within you.’ It’s really funny how you don’t know you are God. And there is another form, invisible form, that God manifests also when you meditate within, to communicate with you. That is a little higher level. In the highest level, God is formless: God is only bliss, light, happiness, indescribable ecstasy; indescribable. And when you see the invisible form inside of God, you already feel so ecstatic, you already lose yourself in Hirm; you don’t know what to do already. And if we come to the highest level, then we become one with God, like Jesus said, ‘I and my Father are one.’ And then, later you even have no more ‘I’ and no more ‘Father,’ but only Father, only God, and then everything you’ll say, ‘Not I do, but God does it. My Father does it.' To know God is very instantly; to get to the higher level or the highest level takes some more time. Because just like in the Bible, it says, ‘In my Father’s house, there are many mansions.’ That means many different attributes of God we must know, one by one.” “But God is above all that. God is all love, forgiving. God is always with us, wants to protect us, to give us all the happiness that we want. Just that we have to contact Hirm to receive it.”

Signs of Agni Yoga: Selection from Infinity I by Spiritual Messengers Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 2 of 2

Signs of Agni Yoga: Selection from Infinity I by Spiritual Messengers Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 2 of 2

Eternally moving, eternally striving, eternally aspiring to the heights, eternally manifesting vigilance, affirming Truth, manifesting the radiant thread of the Mother of the World by the armor of infinite beauty, assailing the darkness of ignorance, promising to the abode of humanity the glory of the stars - thus walk, saying, “World, I wish to accept all thy gifts; I wish to fill to the brim the chalice of attainment; I wish, O Lord, to drain the chalice of the Wisdom of Thy Covenants!” Give Us the possibility to manifest Our power, to extend the hand of help. The law of gravity is acknowledged by all. Why not apply this simple condition in life? Joy can attract with a magnetic current the joy from space. But the thought of darkness gives birth to layers of heavy clouds. We vouch for the reality of the gravitation of thought. When the trend of human thought is not toward spirituality, evolution is not accelerated.

The Reunion of Souls, Part 3 of 11

28:28

The Reunion of Souls, Part 3 of 11

A group of Maori people outside the venue performed a traditional Powhiri ceremony to welcome Master to New Zealand. A Powhiri is more than just a welcome; it is an acknowledgement of the dimensions of spiritual, physical and mental wellness. On this occasion, the "Kaumatua" was also a spiritual leader of the Maori. He then thanked Her for the tremendous work that She is doing for the higher good of all people. He said that as Tangatawhenua we have a responsibility and accountability to our people to Manaaki (embrace and host the Master with the reverence She deserves.) “I sneeze the breath of life. My heart is glad that You came to this land. My entire being is open to Your words. Let Us both ascend these mountains and bath in these tranquil bodies of water. Man will come and go, while the land remains.” “Thank you so much for your love. I’m so… I’m so overwhelmed by your kindness and your poetic spiritually elevated expression of love. This kind of highly elevated spiritual expression you cannot hear everywhere, and it is very rare. And it touches everyone’s soul who hears it. I wonder if all of you are poets, or perhaps you are saints.” “And I’m so honored, very, very extremely honored. And I am sure God blesses you, your people, and your land. If my humble prayer has any affect at all, I will pray again, now, and tonight and in the future for your people. And I shall always treasure this elevated feeling today.” “I am very shy with all these professional singers. Yes, their voices are so great; they’re so strong, (Yes.) yeah, and full of love. And, my goodness, what do you eat? You have voices so strong? How much time you practice a day, how many hours? No. Just natural? From the father’s speech and from their love, their vibration, I can feel that you have a great, great spiritual tradition. Your level of spiritual understanding is very high, was very high, and still is very high. (Thank You.) I am so happy to meet such a spiritually highly developed race of people. (Thank You.) Thank you so much. Thank you for the honor. Thank you.”

Understanding the Mayan Calendar: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 3 of 3

Understanding the Mayan Calendar: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 3 of 3

As Don Carlos Barrios explains in the following introductory excerpt, the time has come to share this ancient wisdom. Here is an Energy Table containing all 260 energies found in the sacred Cholq’ij calendar. This is a tool to help us find our Mayan sign. In each row, there is a sign for the 20 days in each month; and in each of the columns, we can find 13 forces, representing 13 months. Here is a Calendar Table, which begins on the first day of 1900 and ends on December 21, 2012, because the Mayan Long Count calendar ended on that day. Symbols are provided for each 13-day cycle. So what we need to do is to: “...Find the year you were born and then look down to find the preceding date closest to your birthday. On the right is the corresponding Mayan date. Write this down. Now turn back to the Energy Table and find the name of the sign on the left and the corresponding number along that row in the cells to the right.” “The energy and information in each day’s sign, both positive and negative according to the different stages of life, is used to guide people, help them find their purpose, indicate aspects that will allow them to achieve this goal, and thus shape their destiny. The relationship of the fixed or mobile cycles of change that govern people must also be kept in mind. Through a person’s sign, we can establish the abilities, gifts, spiritual qualities, or paranormal properties that person possesses and outline the places or energy centers that will help him or her develop. The practice of following Mayan signs enabled the traditional Classic Mayan world to be a harmonious civilization. No one lived in opposition to their own energies and destiny. Everyone respected each other because they knew they were all part of an evolutionary whole in the cosmic plan. The mandate that each person was born with was honored.” “No one labored at anything other than what they were born to do as indicated in their sign. Everyone therefore grew in a unified and enriching manner, completely in tune with their own makeup and with Mother Nature. It offers us the opportunity to become self-realized according to our individual capabilities, to increase our understanding of ourselves, and to relate to the energies that manifest each day. A more enlightened humanity is anxious to achieve real, conscious growth.”

Practice What You Believe: Faith Panel on the Relationship between Religion and Veganism, Part 2 of 4

Practice What You Believe: Faith Panel on the Relationship between Religion and Veganism, Part 2 of 4

In today’s episode, we’re going to hear about some of the ingrained cultural convictions and habits which act, in many people of faith, as impediments to espousing a mindful meat-and-dairy-free lifestyle, and how religious vegan activists address these sensitive obstacles in the heart of their worshiping communities. “So now, just to get to the dairy association, where it’s instructed on how to look after the cows. There’s associated scriptures with the Bhagavad Gita called ‘the Vedas’ and the Atharva Ved Part 2, 3 and 4, 5 goes into explaining and instructing exactly how to look after cows. So, at that time, the Atharva Ved says that, you only take milk from cows that are free and grazing in the sun, that are eating grass, and that have had their calves fed first. It also instructs us not to kill any cows. And we are not to drink any milk from cows that are not looked after in this way.” “And again, this reference that people make back to Genesis, that God gave humans dominion over the Earth. And historically, that that’s been kind of received as being more like domination, and an excuse to use and exploit the Earth’s resources. And it’s actually been used to justify colonialism, patriarchy, racism and is now used to justify the way that we treat the planet basically, and its inhabitants. And I think there’s a shift in people’s thinking in Christianity which is really refreshing - that to understand dominion not as domination but as stewardship. And that means that we have responsibility towards and for God’s creation, not our kind of playground and resource pit. So, we’re looking after it on behalf of God, and we’re actually thinking about the consequences of what happens when we don’t look after it.” “And a lot of the work that we do is trying to persuade people that you don’t have to choose between your religion and your diet. And so, what we’ve put a lot of effort into, is taking these very stereotypically Jewish dishes and veganizing them. And saying to people, look, you can have 90% of the taste and it’s vegan and you don’t have to make such a sacrifice.” Indeed, we don’t have to abandon religious culinary traditions to adopt a vegan diet. We can integrate and embrace both thanks to the ever-burgeoning cornucopia of plant-based substitutes that are readily available in the markets today, and thanks to the proliferation, on the internet, of delicious, healthy and ingeniously creative vegan recipes which emulate time-honored dishes.

The Call of Cosmic Evolution: Excerpts from “Leaves of Morya’s Garden” by Spiritual Messengers Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 1 of 2

The esteemed mystical and philosophical writers Nicholas Roerich and his wife Helena Roerich are two of the most influential spiritual thought leaders from Russia. They are recognized for founding a doctrine called Agni Yoga, also known as Living Ethics. Traveling extensively throughout Asia to deepen their spiritual studies, the Roerichs eventually met their Master in Darjeeling, India. Morya revealed messages of higher wisdom to Nicholas and Helena Roerich, which they recorded on paper and later gathered into a series of texts. One of these is the two-volume book titled “Leaves of Morya’s Garden.” “By holiness in life, guard the precious Gem of Gems. Aum Tat Sat Aum! (‘The Supreme Absolute Truth’ or ‘All that is’) I am thou, thou art I—parts of the Divine Self. I invoke blessings unto you. Salvation will be yours! Life nourishes the soul. Strive for the life glorified, and for the realization of purity. Put aside all prejudices—think freely.”

Издигане до най-висшия Свят: Откъси от Книга 7 на „Републиката” от Платон (вегетарианец), част 1 от 2

The Venerated Socrates was born in Athens, Greece circa 470 BC. Many people consider Him to be the father of Western philosophy. Today we’ll read an excerpt from Book Vll of “The Republic,” in which the Venerated Socrates and Glaucon converse on the subject of transitioning from darkness to an upper world of light and reason. This is Plato’s well-known allegory of the cave, describing how the philosopher is like a prisoner who, once freed, would require a new understanding of reality. “My opinion is that in the world of knowledge the idea of good appears last of all, and is seen only with an effort; and, when seen, is also inferred to be the universal author of all things beautiful and right, parent of light and of the Lord of light in this visible world, and the immediate source of reason and truth in the intellectual; and that this is the power upon which he who would act rationally either in public or private life must have his eye fixed. Moreover, I said, you must not wonder that those who attain to this beatific vision are unwilling to descend to human affairs; for their souls are ever hastening into the upper world where they desire to dwell.”

Selections from "The Pathway of Life" by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 1 – The Soul, Part 1 of 2

“Everyone thinks of changing the world but no one thinks of changing himself.” This insightful saying by Leo Tolstoy is a valuable reminder for all of us to reflect inwardly. The renowned 19th-century Russian author suggested that we ask ourselves what God really wants us to do. As Leo Tolstoy said, “In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.” Supreme Master Ching Hai once spoke of Tolstoy in a group meditation session with our Association members in July, 1997 in Los Angeles, USA. “Because Tolstoy was a practitioner. That's why when you read his stories, most stories are about spiritual things, about God, and very happy and very positive. It's very good to read him, to read his books. You try. If you haven't, you try. You can read more. Such things are very good for you.” We would like to share an insightful excerpt of Volume 1: The Soul from “The Pathway of Life,” a collection of Tolstoy’s philosophies on religion, life, death and more. “The intangible, invisible, incorporeal something, which gives life to all that is living, we call God. The same intangible, invisible, incorporeal principle, which is separated by the body from all else, and of which we are conscious as self, we call the soul.” “A man who has attained old age has passed through many vicissitudes: he was first an infant, then a child, an adult, an old man. But no matter how he has changed, he always calls himself ‘I.’ This ‘I’ has always remained the same. This ‘I’ was the same in his infancy, in his period of maturity, in his old age. This unchanging ‘I’ we call the soul.” “If a man is not conscious of the soul within himself, it does not prove that he has no soul, but only that he has not yet learned to be aware of the soul within himself. Until we have realized what is within us, what good is it to us to know what is beyond us? And is it possible to know the world without knowing ourselves? Can he who is blind at home, possess sight when he is abroad? Just as a candle cannot burn without a fire, man cannot live without a spiritual life. The spirit dwells in all men, but not all men are aware of this. Happy is the life of him who knows this, and unhappy his life who does not know it.” “All that is material in this world, we cannot know the true nature thereof. Only the spiritual that is within us is fully known to us, namely that of which we are conscious, and which does not depend upon our feelings or our thoughts.”

How Suffering Can Lead Us to Happiness, Part 2 of 3 Sydney, Australia – March 16, 1993

How Suffering Can Lead Us to Happiness, Part 2 of 3 Sydney, Australia – March 16, 1993

If we do not practice this, if we do not find a way to recognize our greatest inheritance, no one would say anything to us. Absolutely no one has the right to say anything. It’s only us, we, who suffer the loss that we have a great treasure and we don’t use it. And we suffer so much, or we have some happiness, but only very partial, very short-lived, and sometimes it is the cause of the next sorrow of tomorrow. If we do not get enlightenment, we do not know our Supreme Power, we deny ourselves the greatest privilege that even angels envy, even small gods in lower heavenly regions are jealous of, and that is a pity. We are the only ones to be blamed. And so, since I am here already, due to my fellow practitioners’ kindness and invitation, I am willing to share with you the way to regain your greatness, to experience your true Self, to have all your wishes fulfilled, and to live a more worthy life.

„При Буда е подобно, обръщане към рядък ход на действие. Като знае, че някои имат склонност към маловажното, Той използва силата на подходящите средства, за да повлияе и оформи умовете им, и едва тогава ги обучава на великата Мъдрост.”
