God and His Glory: Selections from “The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna - Chapter 2, In the Company of Devotees,” Part 2 of 2

“NEIGHBOR: ‘Why has God created wicked people?’ MASTER: ‘That is His will, His play. In His maya there exists avidya as well as vidya. Darkness is needed too. It reveals all the more the glory of light. There is no doubt that anger, lust, and greed are evils. Why, then, has God created them? In order to create saints. A man becomes a saint by conquering the senses. Is there anything impossible for

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

III The Striving after Perfection Requires Mental Effort “‘Be ye perfect, even as your Heavenly Father is perfect,’ says the Gospel. This does not signify that Christ commands man to be as perfect as God, but that every man must make efforts of mind to strive after perfection, and in this striving is the life of man. Every creature grows up gradually and not all at once. A science cannot be master

Perception of Absolute Unity: From Socrates–Glaucon Dialogue in “The Republic” by Plato (vegetarian)

The venerated Socrates was born in Athens, Greece circa 470 BC. Many people consider Him to be the father of Western philosophy. Others think of Him as an insightful teacher and an enlightened Master. Most of the information about Socrates, His life and His philosophy, was transcribed after His departure by two of His students, Plato and Xenophon. These disciples wrote about their Master in severa

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 17 of 17

God bless you all and God bless great America. Thank you so much. Please tell me we can be veg, go green, do good deeds, and save the planet. Say yes. (Yes!) So be it. Bless you. We will save the planet with your help.(We are delighted to present a trio of musicians from Washington, D.C.) That’s good. (The St. Charles String was founded in 2004 as an opportunity to promote chamber music through educational outreach programs and concerts. These musicians are renowned for their technique and exciting repertoire. In addition to playing classical chamber music, the St. Charles String are also known for their fun and uplifting arrangements of modern rock tunes – a true celebration of youth, inspiration, and endless possibilities.) (Please welcome the St. Charles String, playing “Sunrise Quartet, Allegro con Spirito.”) Excellent, excellent! Thank you so much! Could you please give them some gifts for me, like books and a little red envelope? (Yes, Master. And we wanted to thank them for sharing their elevating music with our world audience.) Thank you. (Which raises the question, what will music be like in the Golden Era? Our final song is from Nominjin, a singer-songwriter from Mongolia whose voice is a joy to behold.) Yes. (This evening, she will be singing “From a Distance.” While she performs, we will watch a video that celebrates the dawn of the Golden Era here on Earth. Please give a warm welcome to Nominjin.) (From a distance the world is blue and green. And the snow capped mountains white. From a distance the ocean meets the stream. And the eagle takes to flight. From a distance there is harmony. And it echoes through the land. It’s the voice of hope It’s the voice of peace. It’s the voice of every man. From a distance we all have enough And no one is in need. And there are no guns, no bombs and no disease. And no hungry mouths to feed From a distance we are instruments marching in a common band. Playing songs of hope. Playing songs of peace. They’re the songs of every man God is watching us. From a distance you look like my friend Even though we are at war. From a distance I just cannot comprehend. What all this fighting’s for. From a distance there is harmony. And it echoes through the land. It’s the hope of hopes. It’s the love of loves It’s the hearts of every man. And it’s the hope of hopes. It’s the love of loves. It’s the song of every man. God is watching us from a distance God is watching us from a distance.) Bravo, bravo! Beautiful, beautiful! Beautiful lyrics as well. (Thank you, Nominjin, for that stunning performance, and the video was very inspiring. We are looking forward to that happy day!) (Supreme Master Ching Hai, we have a special presentation for You from Mr.Lý Kiến Trúc, President of the Vietnamese American Media and Artists Association, Orange County, California. One of our Association members is here to accept this award on Your behalf.) Let me fly over in a minute! (Please give a warm welcome to Mr. Lý Kiến Trúc.) Well, thank you, thank you. Thank you. (The inscription reads: “On behalf of all the people inhabiting this green world, I would like to thank you, the organizing committee and Supreme Master Ching Hai, for all Your compassionate work. Lý Kiến Trúc.”) Thank you. (Lý Kiến Trúc is a journalist and President of the Vietnamese American Media and Artists Association, Orange County, California.) Thank you. (Good evening, Supreme Master Ching Hai.) Good evening. (Good evening, everyone. I am Aulacese (Vietnamese). I am a journalist. The Aulacese (Vietnamese) community is in Orange County, Southern California. I am very happy and honored to be here and I thank You very much, Supreme Master Ching Hai.) I thank you. Thank you very much, Mr. Lý Kiến Trúc. I wish your family good health. (Many thanks for your thoughtfulness, Mr. Lý Kiến Trúc. Your work as a dedicated journalist is appreciated.) Yes. I send my love and regards to all the journalists at home there, and my best wishes and regards. I said, “I send my love and regards to all the journalists at home there, and my best wishes and regards.” And thanks for the award, thank you. God bless you. In case you didn’t know, he also opened a couple of vegetarian restaurant. Please visit. (Supreme Master Ching Hai, we are very grateful for You sharing Your time and Your wisdom with us this afternoon. Before leaving us, would You like to share a final message?) I thought everybody should go and have a vegan gourmet dinner. Are you hungry? (Yes!) OK. I just want to say thank you again. God bless you all and God bless great America. Thank you so much. Please tell me we can be veg, go green, do good deeds, and save the planet. Say yes. (Yes!) So be it. Bless you. We will save the planet with your help. Good night, I love you all. God bless you. God bless us. God protect the planet. See you sometime. So long, and much love, love – love from my heart. (We wish You all the very best, Supreme Master.) I wish you all the best also, my love. Bye-bye, love. (We would like to also thank our two talented American Sign Language interpreters Miss Bevin McNamara and Miss Andrea K. Smith. Their diligent work has helped the hearing impaired enjoy this very special conference.) (And our special thanks to Supreme Master Television for sharing this conference with viewers around the world. Inspired by Supreme Master Ching Hai, Supreme Master Television broadcasts positive and constructive programs.) (Ladies and gentlemen, this concludes our “Humanity's Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference.” Wishing all of you ever greater happiness, health, and a long, joyous future! May Heaven be with you always! Bye-bye!) “(I hear the message clearly, in regards to the impact of animal husbandry, of animal farming on the environment. And I believe that most who are here are already converts to that idea, so it certainly was very useful for me to hear that message myself. I am very impressed with the work that She (Supreme Master Ching Hai) is doing because ultimately it’s about the future, and the future is our children and they are at risk, at significant risk. They’re at risk by virtue of the diets that are imposed on them. And so I think it’s very important that all this kind of information be made available to as many people as possible.)” “(I was very impressed. She’s (Supreme Master Ching Hai) very non-pretentious, down-to-earth, humble, funny. It was wonderful. It’s wonderful to see the conscious, different sort of cultural groups being involved in this in a different way and it felt spiritual.)” “(Be veg! Go green! 2 Save the planet!)”

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 16 of 17

It is true that we are indebted to all the inspiring teachers whom we are honored to learn from throughout our lives, especially the teachers who impart the moral values as you mentioned, and a virtuous way of life; who help to nurture the citizens of the world to do good deeds selflessly; who treat others with kindness and fairness; and take care of the weak and the less fortunate. If we had more such teachers, our world could become a Heaven. As the famous American historian Henry Adams said, I quote him: “A teacher affects eternity.” Even eternity, not just one lifetime, a good teacher.(Our final question for today comes from Ms. Julie Johnson, a teacher, adult educator, and former Coordinator of Environment and Sustainability Programs at an independent boys' school in Canada.) (Supreme Master Ching Hai, I’d like to say hallo from Canada. My husband and I are visiting from Canada and I know there are lots of Canadians helping out with the conference today.) Hallo! (And we’d like to let You know that You’re a climate hero in Canada, as well as here in the States, so thank You for that.) Climate hero, I like that. I like that, but I would like to save that title for all the people in the world who are doing more than I do and who are trying more than I do in their own way to save lives. By the way, I also thank them from the bottom of my heart for this opportunity. Thank you, all of you, for being heroes. Yes, thank you, all of you. (Supreme Master, there are so many inspiring teachers in this world, from many walks of life and these educators treat children as whole beings, and in addition to teaching skills and knowledge, they also instill good values in our children. And I’m wondering, how will noble, loving education help to usher in the Golden Era?) Good, noble education. Hallo, Canada. I’ve been in your beautiful country and met the kind people of Canada. Very safe country. Also, because your country is peaceful, makes no enemies anywhere. When you don’t provoke people, then you are at peace. That’s a good example, you see? Canada is a good example of, “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Your country only helps people and is being friendly to all nations, therefore, your country is always at peace and the people are happy. But it’s cold, very cold. Even then, people are happy. They’re not going anywhere, they stay there. So now, I like your expression very much: “noble, loving education.” And it is true that we are indebted to all the inspiring teachers whom we are honored to learn from throughout our lives, especially the teachers who impart the moral values as you mentioned, and a virtuous way of life; who help to nurture the citizens of the world to do good deeds selflessly; who treat others with kindness and fairness; and take care of the weak and the less fortunate. If we had more such teachers, our world could become a Heaven. As the famous American historian Henry Adams said, I quote him: “A teacher affects eternity.” Even eternity, not just one lifetime, a good teacher. A teacher affects eternity; that’s something to think about. The best way, I think, is to start with a spiritual foundation, because spiritual practice includes the basic moral and social standards. I think all the schools on our planet should include spiritual and moral standards in our school curriculum. Because that’s what’s lacking, deeper subjects. Not just saying, “OK, I go to church or I give a little to charity,” which don’t always even mention in the schools. Now, the basic moral and social standards, we must instill in the children at a young age and provide the inner support they can always lean on throughout their lifetime. A study in Canada, your country, showed that children who have spiritual faith are happier. Furthermore, meditation helps children to become calmer and more focused. For example, in the US, some studies were conducted in schools that taught children how to do simple meditation, and they reported very good results, such as less anxiety, better mood, more attention span. Such kids grow up to be the helpers and strong leaders of our societies. Now, another important part of a noble education, as you mentioned, is to encourage the children’s already God-given loving nature. Actually, all the children, not just the Indigo or Crystal children, are born very sweet and loving and innocent; and they do have a connection with God up to the age of three or four. There was a very touching story, the true story; a mother told the story of her two children talking to each other. One child is a girl, she’s four years old, and the other is one year old, laying in the crib still. And the four-year-old girl asked her younger sibling, “Please, can you tell me what God is like, what God looks like? I began to forget already.” That made me cry so much when I first heard about it. “Please tell me what God is like, I began to forget already,” the four-year-old tells the one-year-old. And now, we come back to Earth. We have to teach the children to be protective and loving to the innocent lives, like the animals, the helpless, the defenseless, the innocent. The blessing, actually, to our planet, are the animals. This gives them a close affinity with animals since a young age. We have to teach them the value of loving kindness to others, especially to the animals. It is up to us to not suppress or deny them their love for the animals. When we feed our children animals’ meat, the children, of course, become anxious and restless, because it goes against their natural instinct. We put violence into their tender bodies when we should teach them the best example of loving kindness and compassion. It’s not just the physical, but subconsciously, in being given meat, they learn something very conflicting with their own care for the animals and love in their own hearts, and clashing with everything else they are taught about being loving, being kind, not harming others, not killing others if we ourselves don’t want to be harmed or to be killed, treated badly in the same way. We teach our children to be kind, to be loving, to be non-violent, but we feed them the very symbol of unkindness, of violence. That is the piece of animal flesh that we force into their tender bodies, by force sometimes. If you notice many little babies, when you feed them meat they often spit it out, and then we take it back, forcing them again, again and again until they get used to it and cannot do without. And then they grow up teaching their children the same way. Isn’t that a pity? Very sad affair. But it’s not really the parents’ or the teachers’ fault; it’s not our fault, because we ourselves were taught the same, as I have told you, from generation to generation, one leading the next, because we have no time to do the research on the reality of the harm of the animal diet and the benefit of the vegan lifestyle. See? Now, we must take time to do it. This is truly a tragic education that we have been passing on to us and we have been passing on to our children. We shut off our sensitivity to the suffering of the animals and let ourselves forget that we are degrading ourselves, our true God-like, compassionate and innocent selves. We damage our bodies, our intelligence and we are killing the planet. Now, all it takes is a noble teacher, a parent – one noble role model – to nurture in our children what they were born knowing: that we love and care for all living beings as we would ourselves. That is the only philosophy. And that is the only true, noble way of living our lives. If we cannot teach that all life has inherent, precious value, then we may wonder what is worth teaching. Jesus said that above all else, we must love one another as ourselves. The Talmud said, “The greatest wisdom is kindness.” The Buddha taught us to uphold compassion, and the Qur’an reminds us to show mercy to all creatures. The Prophet in the Qur’an stated that “Allah will not give mercy to anyone, except the ones who give mercy to other creatures.” It’s very clear. Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, also told His cousin, “Oh Ali, don’t eat meat, don’t eat that.” So, since human history began, we have been reminded by the great and compassionate teachers, like Mahavira, Jesus Christ, Moses, Buddha, Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, Guru Nanak, etc., etc., and many other great teachers who have helped to uplift us already, time and again, to a more civilized way of living with one another. And if we study carefully Their message, and Their own practice even, at the basic core of the civilized life They taught is the peace-loving vegan diet. That’s the beginning of everything else: that’s the beginning of the moral building block; that’s the beginning of spiritual upliftment; that’s the beginning of a peaceful society. If we can provide this same most basic spiritual and moral foundation for our children, then we are doing our part in “noble, loving education” that you mentioned, and it is certain that we will usher in a Golden Era. Thank you and all Heavens love you for being vegan! And your husband. OK. Thank you for being so patient. Everybody’s still there, I’m surprised! You have not gone home to sleep or did not doze, or anything. My God, what a good people you are! God bless you. Thank you! (And thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for Your answer. And we want to say that You are one of the most inspiring teachers in this world!) Thank you. Thank you. Thank God for blessing me with such privilege. I really thank Heaven every day that I’m in the position to be able to contribute some humble goodness to the society. And thank you for being a good audience, thank you for your good questions. (That completes our formal question-and-answer session. Supreme Master Ching Hai, is there anything else You would like to tell us?) Well, if people are not sleeping yet, I just want to say goodbye. A few words of thanks and goodbye. You see, I am grateful also for the questioners because their questions are very, very thought provoking, very enlightened, very concerned, very loving. Their enlightened questions, their sincere attention, support and love for the planet gives me the inspiration to give a good answer. They said “good answer” is because of good question. And most of all, I appreciate all of your willingness to join hands in helping ensure the future, for our world. If we act now and together, while we still have a chance, and we still have some time, we can step into a world of our most splendid dreams, and beyond. Thank you for the good questions. I would like to thank again all the inspirational speakers, dignitaries, and participating guests for your many and valued contributions to the world. I also send my appreciation to the organizers for making this conference possible and successful.I can imagine how much hard work, dedication, and loving kindness has been put into this conference in order to make it as beautiful as it is. And because of that we have all the beautiful supportive, lively, good-looking audience. Thank you. And I salute the gracious hosting nation, America, as well as the capital of this great nation, Washington, D.C. As the speakers have said today in so many ways, we must all rise to what is needed by the planet now, and to what we know we can be. The time has come for us to change, evolve, grow and stand tall as the rightful crown of creation, the benevolent rulers and protectors, and Heaven’s children on Earth. I pray that each of us may walk away from this important event much more encouraged, much more knowledgeable, and readier than before to go forth in the direction of righteousness, justice and love. Together, let us make the unprecedented leap to the Golden Era, to the time of compassion, harmony, kindness and true peace that awaits us. I know that we can do it. Yes, we can, right? (Yes, we can. Yes, we can!) I am positive that we can do it and I believe the Americans will be standing as one, blazing the trail to our shared wondrous destination. God bless us all. God bless America. God bless our world. Love you. Splendid people, wonderful people, thank you so much. Thank you so much. I’m also standing for you. Thank you, thank you so much. You know I am standing but it doesn’t look much different. I’m not American, you see. Please be seated. (Okay, and now, let’s celebrate with some entertainment.) “(I heard a lot of inspiring talk from the speakers as well as Master Ching Hai. The key message from this conference is, well, everybody can do something about it. And also it's really about considering the next generation. The impact is not just for developing countries or some far away problem. It's actually something very much… much closer to us than I think most of the people are aware of. So that's even a more powerful message: that everybody has to do something to be a contributor.)” “(Tell me your impressions of the conference tonight.) (I am most impressed with the interaction between the questioners and Master Ching Hai in that the interaction helps us to become more intimate with Her. She was very explanatory about Her own pursuit of Her own divinity and Her sharing herself with the audience tonight. I think one of the great messages early on, expressed by Ching Hai, is that it starts with us, the individual, and the collective individual action would perhaps have the greatest impact. We have our own mandate to spread that message amongst our own, but also to those whom we contact wherever we should find them.)” “(In the sense that I did not know the effect of how we gather our food to eat, mostly the animal stock, how much effect that has on the climate.) (What do you think about, like, making diet change? Is that something people can do all over the world? What do you think?) (I truly think so. Most of us are not aware about the effect of our lifestyle on the system, so to a point where we realize that it could help us if we turn vegetarian or if we change our diet from not eating that much animal. And of course, I'm of a belief system that mankind is not meant to eat meat, to start with.) OK. (The original people, according to the history of the African continent where I come from, that the original people who dwelled on planet Earth were Twa people, which are in modern day, Uganda. They never ate meat. They were pygmies, short people. They think it was the climate change that forced them into eating meat, and ever since then mankind started to eat meat.)”

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 15 of 17

There are systems like that that exist without money, based on what I have seen in more highly developed societies in the universe, such as on other planets. You see, our planet is not ready yet for this system. It’s not the system, this or that. It’s the people, the concept of life, the concept of a society has to change first, the people’s concept. Once they make a switch to change into a more sociable, more neighborly, more global family-like, then that kind of exchanging system will automatically come to realization. (Next, we have Mr. Tom Vennum, a clinical bodyworker and a vegan.) (It’s so nice to see You, Supreme Master Ching Hai. This is quite an honor. I’m quite intrigued by the idea of this “Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era” and the idea of a Golden Era being here on planet Earth. I have a question about it. It seems as time has gone on, we’ve evolved to a system where we’ve had to work to provide for our basic survival needs.) Right. (How will this system change as we grow into the new era? Will it be more service-based, where neighbors simply provide for one another out of the kindness of their hearts? Thank You.) That would be great. That would be great, sir. Yes, that’d be great. That would be our dream world. It might happen still. Yes. It’s nice to meet you, sir. You are correct. There are systems like that that exist without money, based on what I have seen in more highly developed societies in the universe, such as on other planets. You see, our planet is not ready yet for this system. It’s not the system, this or that. It’s the people, the concept of life, the concept of a society has to change first, the people’s concept. Once they make a switch to change into a more sociable, more neighborly, more global family-like, then that kind of exchanging system will automatically come to realization. I have seen on other planets: only the people who are more evolved, or the concept has evolved in that direction, more like a community, global community direction, more spiritually, then they would use that exchange system with no money that you mentioned. These planets, they are inhabited by beings similar to us, but they’re more beautiful. I’m sorry. Maybe because they are more relaxed. And they are vegan– relaxed, happy, and light conscience. So many of these civilizations are much more advanced than we are, even spiritually, even technologically, mainly because they have developed morally and spiritually to a higher level than ours. As a result, they do everything in a more effective and peaceful way. In our world, we have to earn a living because of the need for physical survival, so we even feel bored at work in many cases. Many people, they work but they don’t love their job, they are not interested, because they feel forced to do the job just to earn the money. Often because of that we are forced into some job that we don’t even like or not interested in or not even capable to do. So, often our precious talents and gifts, natural gifts, time and freedom, are all lost in the office or in the factory, or at best, put on hold for many, many decades until we’re retired. And then we’re tired to even realize our dream anymore. Or, we are too sick from the whole life long of service and being poisoned by being misled into eating meat, cigarettes, or whatever. So when we retire, we’re really tired, so all our talents, ability, energy, are lost – just for maybe a few dollars an hour. And we are the children of God. And we have talent. Many people who have talent, ability, bury their lives into some other mundane, laborious job until they die, unfulfilled. You know that. Yes. It’s a pity. However, in these more developed places in the universe, everyone is secure and has enough, just like your dream world that you have mentioned. They work, but are able to choose which talents and abilities to share and contribute to the society. Because they do that so they do their best, because they do what they love to; they have choices, see? Instead of working for money, they produce for the honor and pleasure of contributing. They bring the fruits of their labor, or their talents, like their harvests or their services, to a place where they can exchange them with one another for the goods they need. This could be a goal that our world could look forward to. These people in those societies, they can enjoy a lot of time for their leisure, and developing their hobbies and their talents, etc., etc., and discover their dormant capabilities as well. So, therefore, in such a society, there are many wonderful inventions have been born. And many wonderful things happen because people are relaxed and do what they do best. No one ever worries about lacking physical necessities, so their lives are full of freedom and happiness. Doesn’t that sound wonderful, sir? (Yes.) Sound wonderful to anybody? Yes. At least we can dream on, dream on. Because American people say: “You’ve got to have a dream. If you don’t have a dream, how would you have a dream come true?” Right?So, right now we dream that our planet first be saved by a vegan diet, and then we can dream of this dream world in which everyone exercises their talents and their love for their work and creativity, instead of working hard, back broken just for money. Now, wouldn’t it be nice to have this kind of free and happy society? (Yeah.) Well, if I might add, all such societies are also vegan, I told you. Their concept of life is very clear – very clear, very selfless, unconditional, very intelligent. I have not seen a single civilization so advanced and happy, joyful, that is not a vegan society. According to precedent, non-violence is, in fact, vegan, a requirement for advancing to the next levels of civilization. In those societies they only take what they need, and their needs are so few. Because once we change our concept, we live a freer life. Our souls are less burdened, our hearts are more open, our minds are so happy. We need very little in life to feel contented because we’re not burdened by the guilt of murdering innocent animals. We are not burdened by the obligation to earn a living, to pay tax, to pay electricity, to pay whatever – all the basic necessities – that should be free for everyone. Now, in those societies, they don’t have this burden, so they’re free to develop, and they develop so much. And so they’re happy. When you’re happy you don’t need much. You really don’t need much, because you’re spiritually also fed, emotionally also satisfied. And as you notice yourself, when we’re happy emotionally, or physically or mentally, we hardly need anything. Remember when you fall in love, you hold hands all day; you don’t even want to go to eat anything... lie in bed all day talking nonsense together, and you’re not hungry. You’re happy, you feel you don’t need anything. You feel you just need that place, that little room, that’s enough. Now, the taking of another being’s precious life, including the life of an animal, no matter how small, certainly never happens in an intelligent and civilized society, as I have seen it. Members of such a true civilization would never oppress, torture, or murder the weak, defenseless and innocent animals that have never done anything wrong to them; but, on the contrary, treat all life with the utmost respect and protection, like they would their own life. Furthermore, they don’t take up their planet’s resources needlessly to try to breed and raise animals for the pleasure of their fleeting enjoyment of the palate. They are frugal and sensible. Perhaps, we can someday join the ranks of the highly developed planets. Maybe we can even learn from them and exchange goods with them. There is much we could look forward to on our own planet and beyond. But first we have to save it, by being vegan – that’s the only solution right now. We don’t have time for anything else. Thank you, Mr. Good-Heart for being with us, and for doing your part. God bless you. (We are so grateful for Your fascinating vision and elevating wisdom, Supreme Master Ching Hai.)(Next we have a question from Mr. Steve Ma, the founder, president and GEO of the organization Live Green, and he also is a devoted vegan. The letters "GEO" stand for "Green Executive Officer.") Yes? GEO, not CEO? Wonderful. (Hallo, Supreme Master.) Hallo, GEO! Good invention! That’s a new word. (One of the things that we do as an organization is encourage people to go to green businesses and support the business owners who are doing it right. So, first I’d like to invite You to come to DC and we will go out a nice vegan meal together at one of the restaurants.) It’d be my honor. God willing. Thank you. (One of the things we really like to do is point out people who are doing it right, people who are succeeding in helping us live a more sustainable way. And thankfully, there are many recent examples of people, communities, coming together to live a more sustainable way. And for instance, right here in DC, Mrs. Michelle Obama has created an organic community garden, a vegetable garden.) Right! (And school children from nearby schools come by to help maintain that garden.) Yes, I’ve heard about that. (So, I want to know from You specific examples of things that we can do together as communities to really bring about a sustainable planet?) Right! Good question! Good question! Yes, bravo to America’s First Lady Michelle Obama. She is my First Lady. Wonderful. That is a true First Lady. She has taken the lead by example. You know, in our old system of kings and queens in China and Âu Lạc (Vietnam), we call the queen, “Mother of the Nation.” So Mrs. Michelle Obama is worthy to be called that. She has taken the lead by example. She even said that her family feels more energetic and healthier from eating the organic vegetables, local-grown. Imagine if every neighborhood in the United States had an organic veggie garden like that, for sharing fresh, healthy, vegetables with everyone. There are reports about organic vegetable farming that it is quite profitable, and the demand for organic vegan foods now is growing faster and faster around the world. So one thing we can do is to encourage more organic vegan farmers markets. Farmers markets are more and more popular in the United States now because it’s fresh, it’s quality, and it’s local, so there is less transportation pollution. But, interestingly, studies show that eating locally is not as good as eating vegan. For example, scientists at Carnegie Mellon University calculated that a vegan diet reduced over seven times the emissions compared to a 100% local meat diet. So, see? Eating vegan is better than eating local even, “loco” meat. In Spanish, “loco” means crazy – we don’t eat “loco” meat. Now, in another study, Foodwatch in Germany found that switching from a meat diet to an organic meat diet saved only 8% of emissions, but switching to a non-organic vegan diet, even non-organic vegan diet, reduced 86% of emissions. So, we save the planet by being vegan. Even non-organic! So, actually, organic is good, local is wonderful, but the first step is at least being vegan, organic or not. Organic, of course, is the best, because when we plant all the tillable acres on our planet organically, then the CO2, the carbon dioxide, which exists already in our atmosphere will be absorbed 40%. And the other 60%, we take care of by being vegan. Then we’re happy. Our planet will definitely survive. Now, the vegan lifestyle is the greenest lifestyle. Right or not? Yes! Thank you. Thank you, good children of God. Because even organic meat is actually not eco-friendly at all; it requires even more land, and more energy than the non-organic meat in meat farming. Can you believe that? So, it doesn't even help to try to raise animals organically. The so-called “sustainable,” “free-range,” organic poultry, for example, needs 20% more energy and has a 20% higher, bigger impact on global warming than non-organic poultry farms. Think about that. So, we have been misled all the time. This is a terrible thing about this negative power in this world. It makes us believe things that are not good for us at all. From now on, we have to try to do research and believe only what’s good for us. And we have to research until we really find that this news, this information, is truly reliable and believable by example, by proof. Otherwise, just don’t listen to anything anybody else says if they don’t prove it. Similarly, organic eggs were found to have a 14% higher carbon footprint than non-organic eggs. So there we are. And even though you don’t use fertilizers, the benefit could be cancelled out because of the increased land use. Therefore, only the vegan lifestyle is truly sustainable. Now, once we become vegan and urge others to join through grassroots seminars, flyer distribution, letters, emails, whatever, we could practice sustainability in other ways. As I have suggested before, we could plant organic vegetables and trees. Better still are those fruit trees and nut trees, and those vegetables or legumes like beans and stuff that need little water. That, we can do research to know which ones need less water, because right now we’re short of water as well. We’re short of everything right now. So we should be frugal not to waste precious energy and water, use our own shopping bags even. We encourage sustainable energy development. And we can write or talk to the government and the media, and the farmers even, because we really do need all the help from the government, from the media, to accelerate the trend. Another good way to quicken our movement to a sustainable planet is to generate more positive energy: do good deeds and be loving and kind. Expand our loving quality. This is what will create a shield, invincible, to protect us and the planet. Finally, we can pray that divine power manifests on Earth to awaken leaders, the media, the influential people, and all the world citizens to take the right steps to preserve our planet, and fast – fast before it’s too late. Because at this point, we do need Heaven’s intervention to save our planet. Not to pray to them to protect us; just to pray so that they awaken everybody to the solution of the vegan diet, because that is the solution that will save our planet. If we can do these things, starting with being veg, we would realize not just a sustainable planet, but a real paradise of peace in our lifetime. Thank you and Heaven bless you for being a vegan, a handsome vegan. (Thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for sharing Your most wonderful and insightful answers to these thought- questions.) Thank you. “(What was your impression of Supreme Master Ching Hai?)(It was the first time I heard Her speak. I felt She is very insightful and just really did a great job of showing the compassion behind what we’re trying to do. And while we laid out the science, She highlighted the compassionate piece of why we should really be interested in that, and then tied it into science and health and the impact on the environment. So I thought She did an excellent job with that.)” “(Live Green’s mission is to make it easier and more affordable for people to be green. We're trying to break the myth that it's difficult and expensive to be green. We want to give people really simple, easy ways to be green that are very impactful. Obviously, a vegan diet is one of the easiest things, most impactful things that you can do. And it was wonderful to hear at this conference, both the connection to all the environmental problems that livestock have but also a connection to the solutions, the very easy solutions that people can take. Whether it be to fully be vegan or implement a vegetarian lifestyle, this is just one more example of a simple, really impactful thing that people can do to be green.)” “(Great. Do you think that conferences such as these are beneficial and if so, why?) (Absolutely, it's beneficial. People need to know the truth, and unfortunately there's a lot of misinformation out there. There’re a lot of folks that are casting doubt because they want to really stand in the way of progress, and unfortunately a lot of people profit off of the current system. But for us to really create a sustainable planet, something that we can pass on to our future generations in a pristine state, we really need to relook at how we act, how we behave, what we buy, and definitely what we eat. This conference, I thought did a wonderful job of putting the science out, putting some of the moral arguments out, and really helping people understand that food choices are one of the most impactful things that we can do to make the planet better.)” “(And given the fact that you were able actually to speak with Supreme Master Ching Hai today via conference, what was that experience like for you?)” (It was wonderful. She's clearly such a positive spirit. She obviously cares so deeply about humanity, about this planet. Her message is so important and to be a part of that message and contribute in some small way, is really an honor.)”

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 14 of 17

00:29:50

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 14 of 17

The media helps a lot to point people in the direction of the solution. In fact, the most urgent role of the media right now is to become vegan themselves – compassionate, noble, and doing good deeds and to inform people of this urgent action. They should be an example, the media.(Our next question comes from Marysol Verela, a freelance journalist with The Examiner newspaper in Orlando, Florida. A vegetarian herself, she is an advocate of the vegetarian lifestyle and has written many articles to encourage people to embrace it.) (Yes, good evening, Supreme Master. I’m very happy to be here and to have been invited to this event, and to have the opportunity to go back home and inform everyone who didn’t have the same opportunity as me about all the benefits that come from living in this healthy lifestyle.) Thank you. (With that in mind, I have a question for You. I recently noticed that there is more and more positive and constructive media happening around the world.) That’s right. (And there are websites that provide only the good news, and television stations as well. So, with that in mind, can You please share with us Your thoughts on the role of the media in transforming society? Thank You.) Of course they are powerful, Ms. Verela. The media has a very important role in our society, everybody knows that. The printed words are very powerful. People are too busy with their daily activities, so they look to the media for informing and reporting relevant events, important matters, and all necessary information for their lives. So, the media is a useful tool to awaken one another at this crucial time, a time when our planet and the lives on it are in danger. That’s why I’m so glad to see many televisions and radio channels starting to broadcast about the urgent situation of our planet, and even the solution of the vegan diet, which is the switch, that we have to make, very small change: piece of meat out, vegan protein in. That’s it – just a small change, everyone can afford. And it’s cheaper, healthier. And Supreme Master Television is there as well to contribute and to inform the people in this endeavor. Just recently, Lord Stern in the UK made a statement that the vegetarian diet is better than a meat diet for halting climate change, and the world media came to discuss the topic more actively, almost on every station. And then, the Australian and American television channels interviewed former US Vice President and Nobel Prize Laureate Mr. Al Gore. You know, right? Our hero, you know him. (Yes.) Everybody knows him by now. They asked him, the journalists, the reporters, asked Mr. Al Gore to talk about the vegetarian solution as a means to halt global warming, which he recognized as important in curbing global warming, he recognizes that. He said that he cut back on the animal diet very sharply, and he said that the vegetarian diet definitely is a solution to curb global warming. So, the media helps a lot to point people in the direction of the solution. In fact, the most urgent role of the media right now is to become vegan themselves – compassionate, noble, and doing good deeds and to inform people of this urgent action. They should be an example, the media. Now, we also see that the public is responding with enthusiasm to spiritual topics like meditation, yoga, alternative living, veganism. They want to know more about science and spirituality. We are, as a race, the whole humanity, becoming more spiritually-minded and reaching beyond just the limited, ephemeral, physical realm for something greater, nobler, and higher. I’m so glad we are in this trend. And the media is a huge, huge help in reminding people to go in this upward direction. But, still, our evolution has been a bit too slow, don’t you think? It’s too slow. So, I also look for hope in the good media people such as yourself, Ms. Beautiful. And if I may humbly urge you to encourage people through your work to become vegan, to save human lives, animal lives, and the environment. Because the vegan diet, though simple, is the giant stepping stone that would bring us higher in our evolution. Besides, time is running out for our planet. We must act fast to save lives. So, the media has a very great, heroic, noble role to save the world at this moment in our history. And while saving lives, the media also can save the loving, noble quality in human hearts as well. Do you see how great and noble the role of the media is? Thank you, Ms. Verela, for being a vegetarian yourself. God bless you and your company. (Thank You, Master Ching Hai, for the scope of Your vision and for Your pioneering role in the creation of Supreme Master Television.) (Our next questioner is the owner of Paradise Found, LLC, a company that delivers vegan produce to an ever-expanding market in Ohio. Mr. Randall T. Ball has a question he would like to ask Supreme Master Ching Hai.) Welcome, Mr. Ball. (Hallo, Supreme Master. Thank You.) Hallo. (I’m honored to come. A lot of people don’t know this, Cincinnati is known as “Porkopolis.” We got our start as the pig capital of the Midwest. So, my question is really a very important question, I think, one that I’ve been asking myself for years, and that relates to the political leadership of this country. And to be able to ask You this in Washington, D.C., seems really powerful. So, I wanted to preface by saying, I’m almost half a century old. When I was growing up, America was known as the land of the free and the leader of the free world, and a beacon of light to the world. And now, we’ve become the leading consumer. So, my question is, the American people have demonstrated their compassion and their power, since the beginning, in overcoming many forces of evil. So, right now, how do we, as citizens of America, the ones that are literally consuming the planet, how do we encourage and support greater nobility in ourselves, in our fellow American citizens, and in our government leaders? Thank You.) Mr. Ball, good question, sir. Thank you for trusting me with such a great responsibility. I admire the American people very much, sir, you know that, for their faith and open-minded, courageous spirit. And right now, the government leaders need our faith and encouragement more, because we really need their leadership to bring about wide-scale change. We must help provide the government with information about the true cost of the animal diet. Sometimes the governments are busy, putting priority elsewhere, you know, sir? Not that they don’t like the change, but maybe they are not completely informed. So, we have to inform them: write to them, talk to them, do whatever it takes to inform them of the true cost of the animal diet. Not just costs lives, it costs billions of US dollars every year – just for the meat-related sicknesses, not to talk about how it kills our planet. You can gather and print it, all this information, and send to your political leaders. If you want, you can go to SupremeMasterTV.com/SOS. We have all the information up to date that we have gathered – reliable and ready material collected there for you. I myself have also written and sent letters and information to the secular and religious leaders of the world, hoping they have time to read. I don’t send a lot of books, just short, condensed information. If you want, you can enquire, the condensed one that I sent to the leaders of the world. And if they want to know more, or if you want to know more, or your people want to know more, can always log on to www.SupremeMasterTV.com/SOS. That’s it. Or, just log on to www.SupremeMasterTV.com and ask for any subject you want. They are all free of charge and ready anytime. And should the leaders take some positive steps, then we should write to thank them also and encourage them, not always criticize and don’t thank them when they do the right thing. We should have positive encouragement, you see? We have to encourage them when they do some right things and so they go further in that direction, or even better, improve. As for the way that the meat industry is destroying the environment, our health, and the health and future of our children, and the planet eventually, the numbers, the sheer numbers, should be more than enough to shock any of us into action. Allow me to report to you a few shocking facts from the United States, your country, alone – United States alone. 1. Waste of land. Now, in the US, an area more than nine times the size of California – nine times California’s size! – is used either for growing farm animal feed or grazing livestock. It’s all about animals, nothing about us. That’s about 1 billion acres, or 80% of all agricultural land in the US, and about half of all US land being used for meat production. By contrast, less than three million acres is used to grow all the vegetables in the country. Imagine that! 2. Waste of water. Half the water in the US is wasted on the production of meat. Just for comparison, 100,000 liters of water are needed to produce one kilogram of beef, while less than 1% of this amount, or 900 liters only, is required to harvest a kilogram of wheat. 3. Waste of food. 90% of all soy, 80% of all corn, and 70% of all grain grown in the United States are fed to fatten livestock, while this could feed at least 800 million hungry people, sir. We have hungry people; we have children dying every few seconds because we use too much land, too much water, too much food for livestock instead of on humans. 4. Pollution. Livestock produces 130 times as much waste as the human population in the US. Can you imagine that? A single pig farm with say, 500,000 pigs, generates more waste yearly than the 1.5 million residents of Manhattan in New York City. In Virginia State, even the poultry farms are producing 1.5 times polluting nitrogen, more than all the people living in the same area. We are killing us, ourselves. All this waste is unregulated and untreated. There’s no law to regulate these and treat these things. So, the US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that agriculture, which is mostly for meat production, contributes to nearly three-quarters of the country’s water pollution problems – three-quarters of your country’s pollution comes from livestock. Now, in 1995 one time, one 8-acre pig manure lagoon burst in North Carolina… For people who don’t know what a manure lagoon is, allow me to explain. It is where they have dug a big lake, and then all the manure and the waste – the urine and all that of the pigs – will go in there. And it looks like a lagoon, so they call it “manure lagoon.” One time, an 8-acre large, such pig-manure lagoon burst in North Carolina, spilling 25 million gallons of this poisonous waste, twice the volume of the notorious Exxon-Valdez oil spill. We complain about oil spills, but this is even worse. Hundreds of millions of fish in the state’s New River were killed instantly due to the nitrates in the waste, with further harmful effects once the contamination reached the ocean. This is just one of many incidents, sir. Not only that, we have the enormous dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico, the size of New Jersey, which suffocates all marine life there. And this is overwhelmingly due to the nitrogen runoff from the Midwest, from the animal wastes and the fertilizers for the animal feed crops. This waste is toxic. It contains antibiotics, hormones and pesticides, and 10 to 100 times the concentration of deadly pathogens like E. coli and salmonella compared to human waste. 5. Health and economic costs. Meat causes hundreds of billions – hundreds of billions! – of US dollars in medical costs alone, and economic burdens on families and governments. Not to mention the pain and suffering of the families, of course, unimaginably great and lifelong. And all the while, we are suffering illnesses, losing lives, grieving over lost loved ones, family members; losing happiness; losing money due to the animal diet. We are the ones who are paying the industry to continue producing this problem, producing meat, fish and the like, with our hard-earned tax money that’s used to subsidize them. Ironic? The US government could, of course, redirect the billions of dollars now spent on livestock subsidies to help farmers switch to organic vegetable and fruit agriculture. That will be a great help to your country and the health of the Americans. The government could use these powerful tools to spread campaigns about veg alternatives, bans on meat, and laws to help people switch to organic, vegan farming and consumption. A global switch to a veg diet could even save the world governments a lot of money, as much as 80% of all the climate mitigation costs of US$40 trillion by the year 2050. That is, we save US$32 trillion in climate mitigation costs, and having a healthy vegan population is a good deal, good business deal in all positive aspects. There is a very good reason for the American government to abolish meat, fish, eggs and dairy – all the animal products altogether. We must stop animal production now and at all costs if we want to keep this planet. I repeat: We must stop animal products right now and at all costs if we want to keep this planet. I have always looked to the American people and their great government leaders as one of the best living examples of democracy and freedom, integrity, of our world. However, I must tell you truthfully that the meat industry is unbefitting to the greatness of your country and of the great American citizens. Don’t you agree, sir? Thank you. Great people deserve great things. Great people lead great lifestyles. So we have to do away with the un-great things and we have to begin the great things, for the great people, great country like America. I pray, sir, that the ones who are aware and want to save the children will do something about it, and fast, to stop this horrendous criminal system that is killing us and destroying our planet, and that we must not allow any longer. Thank you and God bless your faith in the Divine, in your leaders, and yourselves. God bless America! (Thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for sharing Your illuminating wisdom with us.) I hope you are not bored yet. No, no. Yes or no? No, yes? (No, no, no, no.) No? Not you say, the audience I’m asking. You ask them if they’re bored then we have to stop. (Are you bored?) (No.) OK, thanks. Alright, continue then. “(How did you hear about this conference?) (Well, I’m honored enough to have a Loving Cafe within my neighborhood. In fact many of my friends over the years were part of starting that cafe, and I actually get to supply much of the organic produce for the café. And I was very inspired because one of the things inspired me was I came across the book, ‘The Noble Wilds’ when I was having my lunch and I just was totally taken by that approach and the idea of different amounts of noble quality to different animals, and the fact that some might get individual names and how they do. It just touched me and the person described, that’s what the conference would be about. And with the music and the arts, you know, it wasn’t just factual information, as important as that is, but it’s an energy and a tone that gets communicated.I know the sub-focus and I guess the subtext was on climate change, but the larger theme was the Golden Era. And frankly, I think that was the most important. The fact that Supreme Master Ching Hai has held a conference in the capital, declaring that this is what we’re up to, I think it’s a first and I give Her all the credit in the world for doing that. Thank You. And thank you that you’re working for Her TV station to do that. You truly are creating leadership in the world through that.)” “(I think that the nice thing about this conference is that it gives us hope that there are things that we can do each as individuals and that’s change our diet.)” “(So I thank the conference for bringing attention to these really vital issues. Thank you so much to you, to the whole TV station, to Master Ching Hai for holding this groundbreaking conference in Washington, D.C.)”

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 13 of 17

00:26:34

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 13 of 17

So, how is it that animals are helping us to reach the Golden Era? It is through their unconditional benevolent love and merciful nature. Speaking of the quality, the unconditional love, I must say something about honoring this love from the animals. For all the generosity of spirit and blessings that they bring into our lives, how do we have the heart to kill them, and eat them, to enjoy their suffering?Second question: Do the roles and relationships of animals with human beings deeply connect us further? Yes, of course, sir, of course, because the animals are very pure. They are already connected with the higher source of the Divine, so we can learn so much from them. The animal does not have to be large. It could be an ant, which is noted scientifically for his intelligence, or a rabbit. A rabbit is also a powerhouse of love; almost next to the whales, for example. Or even a chicken – you may be surprised. There was a Finnish painter who told us that when he was feeling down because his day didn’t go well, the chickens in his backyard came and sat in front of him, and just by looking at them he got a sudden energy boost and felt better. Yes, try it yourself. Rescue some chickens from the battery farm, and then try looking at them. Thank you. Now, some people also report remarkable experiences with marine mammals, like the dolphins, saying that just contacting them once in a while lifted them out of their depression, or nervous breakdown even. And some researchers have even noted a shift in people’s brain waves for the better, more positive, following dolphin encounters. So, this has been proven, with lasting changes that include more creativity and even a strengthened immune system. Imagine that? Just contact them once in a while. So, how is it that animals are helping us to reach the Golden Era? It is through their unconditional benevolent love and merciful nature, Mr. Canther - I’m sure you know this, or at least you feel it - and their absolute forgiveness, no matter what humanity has done to them. You see, for example the whales, in Âu Lạc (Vietnam), the big whales that rescue the fishermen in Âu Lạc (Vietnam), they do know that these are fishermen. They do know that they kill fish for a living, but they still rescue them at sea when the fishermen are in danger. You see? Absolutely unconditional, non-judgmental. This is the love that we humans also house in our hearts, but we have suppressed it, because the substances that we took into our body don’t help us to develop more of our Divinity, but on the contrary, destroy it, or at least suppress it, damage it. So now, we have to reclaim it again. Speaking of the quality, the unconditional love, I must say something about honoring this love from the animals. For all the generosity of spirit and blessings that they bring into our lives, how do we have the heart to kill them, and eat them, to enjoy their suffering? You must know this, Mr. Canther, since you are already vegetarian. I appreciate that. God bless you. Thank you, thank you. For anyone who is not yet a vegan, or who has not understood why, please inform yourself of the unimaginable, utterly cruel and utmost inhumane treatment involved in meat and dairy production, or fishing even, as well as lab experiments or the animal fur industry. If we really connect with the animals, or if we really don’t shut down our innate feeling, we will also feel their suffering, which is caused almost exclusively by humans. So please, I ask you, go and find out what really happens to the animals in those slaughterhouses – I will call it “mass murder house.” If you do, it’s likely that they will no longer end up on your plate. The unimaginable horrendous treatment of the babies – baby cows even, baby seals, baby chicks – will make you shudder with horror. Even the egg industry has blood on its hands. If you would like more information, there are programs on Supreme Master TV at www.SupremeMasterTV.com/stop-animal-cruelty, as well as other information concerning humans, animals and saving our planet, etc. We don’t like to think of ourselves as cruel, much less brutal, especially for something like a hamburger or a piece of bacon, but these are the facts. Animals are utterly, cruelly mistreated day in and day out to feed the very industry that supplies all the meat consumed by humans. In the news just a few days ago, an undercover video sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States recorded the treatment of baby calves, some barely a few days old. As these animals were being led to their murder, many of them were so weakened by the bad treatment and the condition they lived in that they could not walk - or they were too young to walk - they were kicked, beaten repeatedly while laying down, and they were doused with water to increase the pain of the electrical shock, and even skinned alive. Can you imagine that we do these things? It may surprise you to know that this was a certified organic facility – it’s not just an ordinary animal farm. So, now we know that even the animal products you think are somehow more healthy or eco-friendly, this is not the case at all. Please don’t eat meat, it’s too cruel. In another discovery, undercover recording, baby male chicks were being sent by the thousands down a conveyor belt to a giant meat grinder – alive! Can you imagine? Little chicks like this, so beautiful, so cute? And they do this. We, humans, do this to them. In this factory alone, over 150,000 of the tiny baby chicks are ground up… are ground up, alive, every day for dog meat or whatever meat. All because the male chicks cannot lay eggs, so don’t make profit for the industry. So they grind them alive. Can you imagine? If anyone does not believe in hell, please go and see these places, then you will know hell exists right here on our planet. These factories also supply the so-called free-range eggs. Some people think that eggs do not require the loss of life, but they do, very much so. And then there are the horrifying conditions of the pigs, which are extremely clean animals, by the way, scientifically proven. But these intelligent, sensitive beings are locked in crates so small they can’t even turn around all their miserable lives. But the worst is their actual death process. You see… oh God, I have to tell you, but it’s heart-wrenching. First, the pigs are stunned, often unsuccessfully, leaving them still conscious when they are hung by the feet and cut open with a knife. In fact, they are still alive when they are next put into a vat of boiling water, with videos that have shown them still twisting in pain. Imagine if it’s us. Imagine if it’s our loved one. Imagine if it is a human. All this for a piece of meat, dead flesh that often causes even more diseases to humans, not like it even helps us in any way. Is it really worth it? Tell me, please, is it worth it? (No!) It’s not. It’s not, you’re right. How can we degrade ourselves into such an inhumane, heartless state of being, by supporting these cruel, heart-wrenching practices? I ask myself, “How can we justify causing that much suffering to another being, when the alternative is so easy, affordable and at hand and healthy?” I hope it is clear that the best, and really the only way, is to be vegan. This lifts the immense burden of suffering and murdering of the innocents from our hearts. It can enhance our connection with animals also. The human caregivers at a New Zealand animal sanctuary say that the naturally vegetarian donkeys – the donkeys, they’re vegetarian, yes – and there, they make friends with vegetarian human visitors faster than with the meat eaters because they feel safer without the smell of meat. So, the animals they do know. My dogs for example, my dogs, I have even a Rottweiler – a Rottweiler, you know Rottweiler reputation, right? Whenever I took him to our group meditation places – you can see it on video also, I’m not making up a story to glorify my dog. His name is Goody. When I adopted him, I said, “Goody, your race is a Rottweiler and I heard that you don’t have a good reputation as a race of dogs, so I name you “Goody” and you’re going to be a very good dog so that you can redeem the reputation of the Rottweiler race. It’s OK?” So I named him “Goody” and he’s very good ever since. Whenever I bring him to our group meditation… you know our group is all vegan, and meditation and all that; supposed to be good, and no killing, no drinking, no gambling, no adultery, no stealing, no lying... you know that. So, whenever he goes into this group of people, no matter thousands or hundreds, he runs around them, licking them all over and asking them to hold his hand or hug him, or jumps on them, whatever. He does that to numerous people – whoever – man, woman, children, and old and young alike, because he feels good, safe there, I reckon. Now, you don’t have to be an animal communicator to see this, that he feels good within our group. Now, when I took him out sometimes to the restaurant, which is a non-vegan restaurant... it is difficult to find always in my travels a vegan restaurant, but I go in there to eat vegan, and I sometimes encourage my people to go into a non-vegan restaurant to eat vegan food to remind them to keep cooking more and more vegan for more people, because vegan restaurants, they already know. So, I go often to a non-vegan restaurant if I have to go out. Then, sometimes I bring my dog, whatever dog I bring. OK, now, we talk about Rottweiler, we talk about that race. He’s been so good with hundreds of thousands of my Association members whenever he’s among them. But I brought him out just to a non-vegan restaurant, and the owner of the restaurant, because he knew me, he came and talked to me. He just came, just like two meters near me only, he (Goody) jumped right in the middle, between me and the owner of the restaurant – the owner is still alive; if you want I can ask him. He jumped right in the middle and sat up straight and looked at him and growled at him already – growling only. I said, “No, no don’t do that.” So the Rottweiler was quiet. Then the man thought he could approach me a little further. He just took one more step and he stood up, the Rottweiler stood up, and said, “Grrr, no more!” He protects me that much. But among hundreds or thousands of my people, he never does anything to them. He goes and licks them all over and, pawing them and hugging them. My God, you have to see it to believe. Well, all my people are still alive. You can ask them. The animals do know, I know that from my dogs. All the dogs are the same. Now, one of the other dogs, called Hermit, he’s an Australian Shepherd. He’s also very protective. Now, when he goes among our group, all the vegans, he also lets them… he’s normally very shy; he only knows family members, but when he goes out he’s very shy. But when he goes to our group, if I tell him, “Hermit, never mind, go, let people touch you because they love you” and then he goes. He goes around and lets people touch him, and then he comes back and sits next to me. Yes, fine. But, if I go outside and take this dog with me, even to a bank, he’s not growling like that; he’s shy. But the bank people see him so beautiful – blue eyes and a very beautiful dog - so they want to touch and he doesn’t want them to touch. He hides behind me immediately. Whenever that person approaches, he just runs behind my back and hides. He doesn’t want to be aggressive because I told him not to, but he doesn’t want to be touched by the meat eater. I’m sorry if I offend anyone. But in my group he lets everybody touch him. These are true stories. And now, we must know that animals really understand who is who. So, if we know all this, we cannot support further the meat industry because that’s mass murder. In our society, we only kill someone when he has done something wrong. And nowadays, many countries have already abolished the death penalty. And even a death-sentenced prisoner, they have their own cell and they have clean food, clean water. They are not treated the way we treat our animal friends. This is really not humane at all. Please, stop all this. Please tell everybody else to stop all this. Thank you so much, thank you. (Thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for reminding us how noble our animal friends are and how they contribute to the loving balance of this world.) “(Supreme Master Ching Hai's a very humanitarian woman, She's very accomplished. I sense a sense of love and peace in Her talk, and a humanitarian philosophy. So I thought that was good.)” “(So what are you going to take away from today?) (More awareness about how to help the environment and how to eat healthier. So, just a wonderful event to be more aware of the environment.)” “(And did any of the speakers make a particularly big impression on you, or what really made an impression?) (The Master, Supreme Master. The way She spoke was really, elegant and She seemed to accomplish a lot, with Her prestige and humanitarian works and everything that She's involved with.)” “(And what was your impression of Her?) (Definitely with the Supreme Master, Her presence. Seeing Her just so, calm and, I don't know, just Her presence was wonderful, to be around, and just welcoming and peaceful. I'll definitely go to the website and see how I can make a change in my diet, because the food was delicious. And I'm interested in you know, being a vegetarian and stuff.)” “(I definitely learned a lot about just the mass amount of awareness that this issue has. As soon as I got here and I realized that all these people were here pretty much because they are vegan, it was a different… it was almost like I’d walked into something that was bigger than myself.)” “(I found Her (Supreme Master Ching Hai) message overall pretty appealing to the audience. I mean, She really got down to a level that I can relate to as a college student. Unlike grand philosophers who seem to be on this great pedestal, like knowledge and whatnot, She was more at our level. Really She could joke and She had this kind of simplistic view on the world that we can all share, you know, younger generations. Be veg! Go green! 2 Save the planet!)”

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 12 of 17

00:31:05

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 12 of 17

A compassionate, vegan diet is the basic way of a higher being, a mark of a true human being. A true human being would never kill. A true being would never harm another, even if his own life is threatened. A real gentleman steps wisely, understanding that all beings are connected, and that by taking a life, compromises his own human spirit and bringing the bad retribution of killing upon him. (Our next questioner is also a musician. He goes by the pen name DiViNCi and is renowned for his dynamic form of hip hop. He is most notable for doing many things simultaneously, and can even play music with his feet and face.) (Thank you. I’m here with my group, Solillaquists of Sound, and we’ve dedicated our lives as both people and musicians to inspire everyone to recognize the power that they have as individuals. And it feels really great to be among so many other people that have dedicated their lives to the same thing, so thanks to everyone here, as well as Supreme Master Ching Hai. Can You comment on the children that are being born these days? Children like Akiane, they seem to be born with great gifts and maturity, and wisdom that’s well beyond their years. What is their role in this time?) Yes, I’d be glad to inform you. You just remember, there was one little beautiful girl, Akiane Kramarik. She is one of the, what we call, Indigo children or Crystal children. They are born from a different dimension, from a higher dimension, but unlike us they have the ability to retain their Divinity, or at least some part of it, so that they can bring to this world some different gifts for us. We are all born from different dimensions, Mr. DiViNCi. We are all Divine. We are all born from a higher level of consciousness, from what I know. It’s just that we have been degraded, we have come to this world and we have been confused, and the negative force of this realm has been deluding us and making us into what we have not willed to be. We should have been much better than what we are. That’s why we are never satisfied with ourselves, no matter how much money we have, no matter how successful – big house, big car – something inside us always makes us feel… something’s missing. Something… we don’t know what. That is our Divine origin trying to wake us up. Indigo Children are the children who have exceptional talent for their age. They know more, way beyond their years. And people who have studied or spent time with these special, gifted children have told us about them. These are the youth who are born from higher dimensions and can retain some part of their intelligence, their wisdom and their talent, their quality of the higher dimension. Many children, don’t have to be Indigo children, from the time of their birth until about three, four years of age, many of the children still can remember Heaven. Sometimes they talk with each other about Heaven. Sometimes they told their parents about Heaven, but the parents would not listen, would not understand, because the parents have already forgotten. After three, four years of age we have forgotten our origin. So the Indigo children are the ones who still continue to remember after four or five years of age. Lucky for them. Perhaps it’s Heaven’s will to let these children come and remember their Divine quality so that we have hope, so to remind us that we could attain like that. We could be like them, or perhaps we were like them. Yes, we are like them, Mr. DiViNCi. Through my meditation, through my search of Heaven and Earth, I know we are all Divine, Mr. DiViNCi. If only I can show it to you. If only I can let you know what I know. If only I can remove all the obstructive substances that many of us have been misled about and put into this temple, the Divine temple, and blurred our consciousness. That’s the reason we have forgotten our Godly origin. That’s the reason why we forgot that we are truly the children of God. We have all heard that we are children of God but we don’t know it. We donk’t really know it because we obstructed ourselves, because the negative force in this world is too heavy: they kind of surround us, they kind of oppress us so that we could not struggle to fight against it. And then we succumb to this negative force and degrade ourselves more and more every day. That’s why many Masters came to this planet since times immemorial to try to lift us up, to try to remind us. But the thing is, it’s not that easy because we have been sleeping too long. Now, we are talking about the children, that they have retained some part of their Divinity. They have come because They have found that the atmosphere, perhaps, on our planet has become more suitable, more refined and brighter for them. Our planet has been changing recently for the better, you see, as more and more people are doing virtuous deeds, practice deep meditation, spiritual disciplines, and adopting the compassionate, vegan lifestyle. Nowadays, because the communication is so advanced, so the vegan lifestyle or spiritual lifestyle spreads very easily, unlike the time of Jesus. So, nowadays, we don’t have those harassments from misunderstanding like the time of Jesus or the time of Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him. Also, our human evolution has benefited from the spiritual Masters who have been gracing our Earth throughout history to bless us. So, the atmosphere of our world today has become more purified, despite the setbacks that we have also, at the same time, due to the uncompassionate way that we have been misled into living. Nevertheless, the part that can be purified, it has been purified, so our planet atmosphere has been receptive, uplifted to these higher dimensional levels. So, some higher dimensional beings can come here – perhaps more in the future. These so-called Indigo or Crystal children have come to join us; as we continue to purify our world, we’ll have more and more of them. They serve as innocent inspiration and reminder toward our own innate higher qualities, as we see their good energy, creativity, intelligence, wisdom and love put into practice. For some of us who may not know much about these young people, I will explain a little more. These children, they are born with many talents, including both the artistic and technological, way beyond their tender age. Their faith in the Divine gives them a simple but clear sense of life’s purpose. And, not only do they share their creative talents freely with the world, but they also have a lot of inborn virtues. Their nature is of unwavering honesty that can never be compromised by this world. They are lucky. They dislike suffering and injustice. They are very sensitive to people’s and animals’ feelings. They have more or less telepathic talent. They have intuitive feeling – very strong – so they are very sensitive to other people’s feelings and animals’ feelings. Oftentimes they could communicate with animals since a young age already. Because their purity naturally repels substances such as chemicals, pollution, and unwholesome foods, these children are also vegetarian or vegan by their own choice, since very, very young, as their nobler selves would only allow them to be so. So, their presence is a blessing; it’s a gift for the continued development of our world, and at the same time, they are an encouraging signal that our planet is on an elevating path. We can only wish that more and more of them may come, and better yet, that more and more of their wonderful qualities will emerge in every one of us. Even as ordinary adults, we can cultivate spiritual consciousness still, or creativity, intelligence, and other abilities similar to what we see in these Indigo children. We all have the capacity and potential to be higher beings. We have just been suppressed by incorrect choices in life. We have been poisoning ourselves by misinformation. But, all these wonderful qualities, Divinity, can be awakened any time. I know that because I have my own experience. I wasn’t born enlightened. You see? I searched for enlightenment, and I reached it at around 30 years of age – similar age to the Buddha. Buddha wasn’t born enlightened, despite all the myths about Him. You see, we still have a chance. In our group, many people older than you practice spiritual meditation and they regain their Divinity, just the same like the Indigos or more even. So, we have choices. We have a chance. We can do anything we want because we are the children of God. Just believe it. It’s truly like that. Now, back to Earth. We can always regain all this Divinity. Truly, I promise you with all honesty and honor, that we can have it. All of you sitting there, whatever age you are, if you don’t even have any experience about Heaven, you don’t even have any talent before, you don’t even know what to meditate on – any one of you can attain this Divinity again, reclaim it again, provided we have the right counteraction. And the first step is to switch to a more compassionate lifestyle, because that is what we are: we are compassion. A compassionate, vegan diet is the basic way of a higher being, a mark of a true human being. A true human being would never kill. A true being would never harm another, even if his own life is threatened. A real gentleman steps wisely, understanding that all beings are connected, and that by taking a life, compromises his own human spirit and bringing the bad retribution of killing upon him. So, it is not solely the responsibility of these children to improve the world’s consciousness level – we must all work together to bring Heaven closer to Earth. We can all do it; it’s so simple. In my group, even children five, six years old can meditate and can hear the inside (Heavenly) melody, can talk to God. If we want to bring Heaven to Earth, if that is our wish, so shall it be. Thank you and bless you, Mr. DiViNCi. (Thank You.) (Many thanks, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for the scope of Your vision and for reminding us that we are all God’s children. Our next questioner, Mr. David Canther, is a former pastor and founder of ACTS World Relief. This organization provides hot meals, emotional care, emergency supplies, and medical assistance to those suffering from disasters. ACTS’ mobile kitchens and medical units also provide inner city relief.) (Master, my heart was touched as You were sharing about Hurricane Katrina, and as You know we were there cooking with our kitchens hundreds of thousands of meals when the McDonalds were all closed. And so, we took the quantum leap of faith by offering to hundreds of thousands of people vegan meals.) Bless you. (It was actually quite a shock when we put up signs on the top of the large tents there that we brought in and we could offer different types of food that we listed what they were. The line that was always the longest was for vegetarian and vegan meals.) Incredible, incredible. (The Red Cross was so interested in that, that it was a risk and they contacted me later and said, “Actually, you’re the first organization that we would like to, in the future, offer to help pay for some of those meals because we can see how the community wants a broader amount of the choice of the kind of food they can eat.”) Wonderful. Good news. Good news. Even in such a desperate situation. (There are three questions which I have. What is the role of animals’ Divine presence on Earth? Do their roles and relationships with human beings deeply connect us further? And lastly, are they helping us to reach the Golden Era?) OK, Mr. David Canther. First of all, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart because you’re vegetarian and you offer vegetarian meals to people, and that you give me the good news that the longest lines are the vegetarian (and vegan) food choice. I’m so happy. That means we have a chance to save the planet because more and more people want to be vegetarian. A very good sign, Mr. Canther. You see, even in such a desperate situation where people have nothing anymore and they just need food to survive, they still adhere to the vegetarian (and vegan) diet. Oh, God be praised. Now, I answer your questions. You deserve it. Only three questions? I would answer you 300. Nice to hear good news. Nice to see good people. Mr. Canther, the role of all wondrous animals and their presence on Earth is to bring Divine love onto this planet. The animals are so close to God, we humans can hardly imagine. We hear about plenty of examples, like the dogs that rescue disaster victims who otherwise would not have been found without their extraordinary abilities. They can guide the blind, they even sense when a person is about to have a seizure and dial the emergency telephone number. And then there are other animals we don’t see as often, yet with a Heavenly role that is just as vital. Like the whales and the seals that populate the vast oceans, covering 70% of our Earth, who bless us tremendously by their powerful and love-filled presence. You know, in Âu Lạc (Vietnam), people build some small temples along the coast, many of them, to worship the whales because they want to show gratitude to the whales. Many of the boat people have been rescued by whales from the stormy sea or from a capsized boat; the whales rescued them in numbers. Since time immemorial, the Aulacese (Vietnamese) people have always built temples in gratitude to the whales. And these are the true stories. Not only do they bless us invisibly, they also rescue people at sea. And this is very, very common in Âu Lạc (Vietnam). You go there, you see many whale temples. You still can talk to the people who still stay alive due to the whale’s rescue. I mean, the story is alive, it’s not like a fairy tale or a legend. It is a living story still – even recently. But sadly, they are still seen by some humans as seal fur or whale meat. But these two animals are some of the many animals who literally radiate love to balance our planet. As we are being deluded more and more into the killing of the animals and destroying the environment, the atmosphere of our planet is also being depleted of love and happiness. Therefore, these animals, they were born here in order to balance it, to help us to fill in the void of love that we lost through our inconsiderate actions. But sadly, we kill them. We kill our benefactors, just because we are blind. We are blind spiritually, telepathically and psychically that we don’t see who are friends and who are not. Sadly, the friends, we can see - like the whales, the seals - but we don’t recognize. But the enemies we don’t see but we listen to. That is the force of evil, the force of the negative in this world. We don’t see the force, we don’t see that power, we don’t see it manifested, personified, but we listen to it daily. So, we do many wrong things that we regret. Or, at the time of death, we regret because at that time we can see whatever wrong things we do, just like watching cinemas, and we feel very sorry that we have done such things due to not knowing, due to being misled. So, these animals, they are really our friends, they are our benefactors; but many of us kill them. If we can contact some of the best animal communicators, they will tell you that whales are the greatest love. They house the greatest love of the Divine for our planet, seals also. In one of the conferences last time, I have told the audience about the different quality of love of different animals, and whales and seals are one of the few “number ones” in loving power. Now, that’s not me who says that. It is through meditation and I have been informed like that. So, if we kill these beings, We are really killing ourselves. We take out the balance that is greatly needed at this time, especially at this time, in our dire situation. Now, if we let them live, then they will be able to bring back to Earth the powerful, unconditional love, like that of the mother for her child; and they do their noble mission knowingly. They knowingly do it. “(What was your impression of today’s conference on climate change?) (It was beautiful. It was inspirational, it was necessary. The urgency was conveyed in just the right tone. I can’t really imagine any one person feeling anything but inspired leaving.)” “(Ken, what was your impression of the event today?) (Well it was very positive message. I’m not a vegetarian myself, my daughter is and we didn’t know that would be one of the themes of the conference because we just understood it to be about climate change. But it’s a very positive message that methane is also one of the greenhouse gases that you need to be concerned about. As I said my daughter’s influenced us a lot. She is a young adult and encourages us and brings home meals. She’s been a vegetarian since she was 6. So that little story She (Supreme Master Ching Hai) was telling about Indigo children where you feed your child something and they spit out the meat. That’s what my daughter did when she was four, three, four we’d feed her rice and chicken and she would spit out the little pieces of chicken. So that resonated with me, that children can come with that.)”“(And what was your impression of what Supreme Master Ching Hai had to say?) (She seems like a very beautiful lady and very positive about what the individual can accomplish by maybe taking a vegetarian burger instead of a meat burger, to start off with. I gave up coffee a couple of years ago so maybe I’ll start on vegetarian food.)”

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 11 of 17

The leap is the big jump that could bring humankind from one incorrect way of life to a better way of life, to the next, higher level in a short time. You see, one small step from everyone in the right direction can result in a big leap in our evolution as a human race. And that small step is very simple. It’s just: no killing. Abiding by the principle of “live and let live,” adhering to the universal law where we grant life to beget life.(Our next questioner is Mr. Bob Lebensold, producer and radio host of a program called "Environmentally Sound” on WVOX Radio in New York. In fact, Mr. Lebensold and Supreme Master Ching Hai know each other, because he’s recently interviewed Her on his program.) Right. (Hi, Master!) Hi, Bob! (It’s good to see You again. Good to be with You again.) How are you, Bob? (I’m great. I’m great. It’s very nice to be here. I’m glad Your people invited me. You have a great crew here, great staff.) Good audience. They are so good. (Yes, very good. And very pretty.) I feel such a loving and supportive atmosphere. OK, go ahead, Bob. (OK, my question is: I still don’t quite understand what You mean by "Leap to the Golden Era.” What does the term "leap" actually mean? What makes it happen? And what does the Golden Era mean to us here on Earth?) You don’t know “leap,” Bob? I am sure you know. You just ask so that you can have some interesting things to talk on your radio show, right? Yes. (Actually, I asked that because I would like to understand what this is about. It’s called Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era. And I would like to know just how You see it - what it means in Your terms - because You are the inspirational spark for this whole gathering.)All right, sir. Aye, aye, sir. I will comply. (Thank You.) Thank you for your question. Very thought provoking. I shall try my best to explain what is meant by “Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era.” The leap is the big jump that could bring humankind from one incorrect way of life to a better way of life, to the next, higher level in a short time. You see, one small step from everyone in the right direction can result in a big leap in our evolution as a human race. And that small step is very simple. It’s just: no killing. Abiding by the principle of “live and let live,” adhering to the universal law where we grant life to beget life. Because like attracts like; that, we all know. This, of course, includes adopting a vegan diet. Humans are naturally more generous and peaceful in their hearts; it’s just that we all have been misinformed, misunderstood for a long, long, long time. We thought meat was good for us, we thought dairy was good for us, we thought fish was good for us, we thought eggs were good for us... It’s all wrong. It’s all the opposite. It all has been proven that these things that we have been told that are good for us – like meat, fish, dairy, eggs, whatever animal products “are good for us” – is all wrong. It’s the opposite of what is good. It has been bringing us suffering, sickness and tremendous loss of finances from tax payers, for curing disease and related business. So, we have been misled, for a long, long time. Now, we have to do research. We have to listen to the wise doctors and scientists. We have to see the result of their research: that meat and animal products are really, really poisonous for us. We have to stop now, especially stop for our children’s sake. We can’t keep poisoning our children anymore; they are helpless. The poor children, they rely on us, they think we know better, but it’s not our fault either. We just need to turn around. Why it’s not our fault? Because we have also been taught that way. And our grandparents, our great-grandparents have also been taught that way. And for being too busy, too busy for daily survival, working, we have no time to do research, so we did not know that these things are truly poisonous to us. And above all, it is eating up our planet. It’s not just killing people, it’s not just killing animals, it’s killing our planet. And we have to stop it in order to save our world. We just turn around, that’s it. Just walk the opposite way, the right way without causing any more suffering; no taking more lives, but loving and protecting all creatures. That’s the leap that all humanity needs. Thank you. We will feel completely different after we make this leap. We will feel evolved to the higher level of consciousness automatically. Just imagine we are big, strong, intelligent and able. We are able to plant all kinds of stuff to eat, and we should not use our might, our intelligence, our capability, to harass, to molest, to torture, to cause suffering and to murder those little, helpless, innocent animals who have never done us any harm. According to the law, they are innocent. And if we kill innocent beings, we are the ones who should be punished. I am sorry if I offend you, but this is the truth. And I am sure you understand it. Thank you. Through our leap in this evolution, we can leave this existence of want and fear, toward a true life of peace and love and enlightenment – from the vicious cycle of killing, suffering, and violence to a circle of loving kindness, protection, and happiness. Can we imagine a world where the meek ones never have to fear the strong? Where there is no more violence, no fighting among neighbors, near or far, and no child has to die of hunger, thirst or illness every few seconds, every day, while their mother watches, completely helpless with her heart drowning in sorrow. As I am speaking, many children are dying somewhere. Every few seconds, a child dies of hunger. We cannot keep doing this. We cannot wait longer. We have to save these lives – not just the lives of animals, but the lives of our children, even if it's not our children… other people’s children. Meat causes so much suffering because it causes hunger and war. We use up all our cereals, grain, soy and good resources, and land and water to support the meat industry, and therefore the world is short of food and water. So, in order to save lives we have to stop the meat industry. The way we are living right now is a deeply degraded condition of what we really are. We are the children of God, which is all loving and kindness. We are the heirs of Heaven. We’ve just forgotten. Can you imagine a God who comes here to Earth and kills everything in sight to eat? Sorry, if there is a God like that, I don’t want to be Hiers child. Would you like to be the children of that kind of God? Tell me yes or no? (No!) OK, no. Thank you. Thank you. You are so kind. Now, if God is all merciful, all compassion, and all loving, and we are the children of God, then don’t you think we should walk like God’s children on Earth? We have to walk the way of love and compassion. We have to represent our Father if we want to glorify Hiers name. We always pray every day, “Hallowed be thy name… in Heaven as well as on Earth,” but what do we do to hallow Hiers name? We have to represent Hirm. We always pray to God because we believe God is merciful, protective, compassionate and loving. And we are the children of God, we must represent these qualities. We are those qualities: we are loving and kindness. We have just been misled, misinformed, and we have forgotten. So please just remember. These qualities are deep inside us, so we know there must be something better than what we see around us. We do have examples through our history of human beings whose lives were so uplifting that they continue to shine until today – not only spiritual teachers, but philosophers like Plato, statesmen like Socrates, the mathematician Pythagoras, and the poet Ralph Waldo Emerson of America. They were all vegetarian (vegan). Are you surprised? No, you are not. You don’t look surprised to me. So you knew all that. All the great people, they are vegetarian or vegan. So, if we study them carefully, we will see that at the basic core of the civilized life they taught is the vegan diet. The vegan diet is one of the first single greatest acts of compassion, of not harming another life, and not damaging the environment even. If we compare a meat-based diet to a vegan diet, it takes around 14 times as much water, 6 times as much grain, 10 times as much energy, and over 20 times as much land, while often destroying precious rainforest. Being vegan is good business in terms of virtuous merit, as well as preserving the only home we have. The less damage and harm we inflict upon the planet and her inhabitants, the less we have to pay. We are paying dearly now, and we will pay much dearer if we don’t stop the meat/animal industry. The more we exert our loving kindness and protection towards all beings, the greater we will be in the world, the greater will be the feeling in our hearts as well as in the Kingdom of Heaven. That’s why great Masters and other illuminated souls of the past all taught us, one and the same, that if we don’t wish to be harmed, we must not impose harm on others. You look in all religions, all say the same… this sentence, this same meaning. Whatever is good for us, we should do for others; that whatever we sow, we will reap, without fail. That’s why they did teach us not to eat animals and to be vegan. If we make this leap, a very small change in the diet. Instead of meat, instead of animal protein, we choose vegetable protein, which is first class anyway. Animal protein is second class, why? Because they have eaten the first class vegetable and fruit and then we eat their flesh. That is second class. We are humans, why do we choose the second class stuff? It doesn’t befit us. So we have to make this leap. Thank you. My God! You are so kind. We have to make this leap, ladies and gentlemen, because if we do, the Golden Era will be here in no time heralding a time of peaceful living, without the perpetual loss of lives – early deaths in the tens of billions each year! My God! Tortured and murdered for our fleeting pleasure, which we could always replace. Meat is replaceable. There are so many wonders of earthly life that we have yet to experience and discover! So much scientific knowledge to be revealed and explored, and invented, and incredible technologies to be discovered and developed. There are better social systems. These are things mostly beyond our present level of logic or even our imagination; but, they can only be achieved through tapping into our wisdom and creative power. In order to open this wisdom, we must first remove the harmful, obstructive substances that block and suppress it, like meat, dairy, fish, poultry and all animal products. These things obstruct our intelligence, delay our progress, not just spiritually, morally, but technologically as well. Finally, besides our personal reasons of wanting to welcome a Golden Era, we also have the planet to consider, which as I’m sure you know, we are at risk of losing anytime now. So, this leap in consciousness is also to save our planet and all other beings that deserve a harmonious world to live in. If everyone makes this leap or shift, we can save our planet. I promise, with all the honor that I have, and God be witness. At the same time, we elevate ourselves, which has been long, long overdue. Thank you, Bob, for making me talk so much! Lucky the Washington people are very polite. They are very polite, educated people. Thanks so much. (Thank You for explaining the truth so clearly and for encouraging us to do the right thing. Our next questioner became a vegan a few years ago, when he realized that it was a more compassionate and noble way of living. Mr. Alex Arndt, songwriter, musician, and lead singer of the band Sonic Paradigm now promotes the vegan diet through his songs.) (Hallo, everyone.) Hallo. Wow. (Hi, Supreme Master Ching Hai. Hallo.) Hi, Alex. (Hallo. I just wanted to say thank You for being my fan, I am also a big fan of Yours, and I am so happy to ask You this question.) Please. (My question is: As a musician, it seems to me that one of the most powerful things is art, in our world, and it connects us as human souls. Why do You think this is? Does the beauty of art remind us of another more noble way of life? Thank You.) Yes, sure. Sure, Alex, sure. It’s so nice to see you, a smart, handsome, compassionate musician. Voice of the voiceless, torchbearer for many people. I’m one of your fans as well. I wish you all the best as you continue to write and sing from your heart. Your songs are very touching and ringing with heartfelt truth and feeling, like “There are No Slaughterhouses in the Spiritual World.” So why would we want any on Earth, right? That’s it. Your songs are powerful, very powerful, and art is powerful. You know that. Art can speak to us deep inside without any explanation and language. It just goes straight to our heart. It can elevate a person’s mood, dissolving the barriers of prejudice or preconceived notions, and going beyond the need for human language, for a perfect expression. And you know, Alex, artists like you are considered half-saints already. You are a vegan artist, so perhaps you are more than 50 percent. Congratulations. Aren’t they nice? I could talk forever in this kind of atmosphere. The artists are able to emulate the heavenly melodies and the beauties from above and try to express them on Earth as much as they can through their physical instruments and vocals. Because in Heaven, everything is so glorious and beyond imagination – full of divine Light and Celestial sounds of Music. That is what we call the higher vibrations of the universe, which we can hear anytime. Like now, I’m speaking to you, I don’t have any instrument and nobody is playing any harp around here, but I can hear the Heavenly Music at the same time. The inside melody, this music, is the real music, is the real inspiration behind all the greatest compositions on this planet. I know it because I myself experienced it. In ancient times, the spiritual practitioners who were connected to Heaven, at times tried to replicate the mesmerizing, wonderful music of the celestial abode by creating instruments. So, many of the instruments we have – like the harp, the piano, the violin, the flute, the Scottish bagpipes, etc. – they all correlate with the sounds of real Heavenly realms, except the real ones are much more incredibly uplifting, for this matter. I know it because I can compare, because I hear the inner (Heavenly) Music and I can hear your outside music or other artist’s music, so I can compare. Though the paints and the gold and precious gems can never be as brilliant as the ones in God’s Kingdom, they also still help to remind people of their glorious, divine nature, or awaken to something beyond the ordinary world. So, all artists help to awaken the noble qualities within humans. So, you are right to say that the beauty of art does remind us of our real Home. It’s not just the aesthetic pleasure, but it resonates with our origin. The beauties we adore so much, are us. The nobility, love, and compassion, are us. Therefore, we are grateful to the artists, such as yourself, who have enriched our lives through their beautiful contributions. Let’s continue working together until we create our own spiritual world paradise, Alex. Thank you. Heaven bless you. Thank You. Continue with your music. (And we thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for Your words are actually artistic to our souls. They’re music. It’s heavenly and we are moved with the compassion and passion of what Your wisdom is all about. So thank You once again.) “(From what I hear, particularly from Supreme Master Ching Hai, is that the meat industry is actually more responsible for global warming and greenhouse gases through the methane that the animals naturally emit and we do, that is the most, the greatest cause of global warming. It does make me think about it, and perhaps that has something to do with cutting back on red meat. Also, some of the people I speak to and live with on a day-to-day basis, also they're getting the messages. The cruelty, they see the images of animals being mistreated.)” “(Alex, what are your impressions of the conference that you saw today? What are you taking away from it?)(We were just talking about how amazing it is; the kind of care that went into this conference; from all the people behind the scenes; thank you to you, yourself; thank you to everyone that’s putting this together. All the care that just, that people put into just taking care of me as a questionnaire. And I can’t imagine all the stuff that went behind this, to really make it possible.)”“(My impression of it at this point, I have a much better understanding of who Supreme Master Ching Hai is, because I’ve known Her, I’ve seen Her, but just getting to really look into Her eyes today and see Her compassion and Her emotion was really special for me. Just a spectacular conference! I loved it! Thank you. We’ve written a couple of songs about compassion for animals. As people might know about around here but we think that there could probably be… or at least I think, that there could probably be 10 more songs that deal with different sides of it, different ways to tell people. I mean one of our songs kind of states how I just went into being conscious about not creating any more pain and it really literally happened not overnight but like almost instantaneously after watching a video of cruelty towards animals, I mean it was just boom you know, so in my case I went vegan overnight or on the same day. And so I think that’s totally possible, you know and it wasn’t hard, it was like the easiest thing to do, I was so happy about it. So I mean it can go that way, but if it doesn’t affect you in that way, where you just go right away and you just realize it, then maybe you know you can step for like having vegan Mondays or something.)”“(We actually started a song we kind of, we wrote a song about, a little bit about having to do with this, called ‘Wake us up,’ but I heard Her referring to, Supreme Master referring to that, and I thought we haven’t done anything with the song yet, recorded it, and I think we’re… I would like to go back and revisit it after today and fix it up a little then, it’s cool we need to wake up.)” “(So do you have a hope that this message will carry across the world and we will become vegan in time?) (I think that, I know that we will, I know that we will. And I think that’s what everybody has to keep in mind is that if you don’t believe it, it’s not going to happen. So you have to believe it. So that’s why we all believe that it actually is happening right now and this paradigm shift, I mean in the long scheme of things it’s already happened, it’s only like, it’s a matter of time before this planet change, we’re in desperate need for a change right now. Right? And I thank you guys and everybody that’s volunteering to make this possible, this is so good, thank you for the interview and making this all possible.)”“(Hallo, my name is Alex Arndt, I’m a singer from the Sonic Paradigm. Be veg! Go green! 2 Save the planet… today!)”

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 10 of 17

00:30:22

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 10 of 17

So please pray with me, Mr. Pelletier, that everyone does wake up in time. Pray. I pray day and night that the Divine manifest in the physical realm and wake up the leaders of our nations, wake up the religious heads, wake up everybody in time so that they understand the urgency of our situation, and that they understand the solution of solving this dangerous crisis that is facing us. That is, we have to turn back to our caring and compassionate nature inside our heart. That’s very simple. We are that. We are compassion. We are merciful, we are caring. (They wanted me to ask one more thing.) Yeah, please. (Sometimes it takes an impending catastrophe to make us change and become much greater than we were before.) Oh. (Is this what’s happening with climate change? Is it, in fact, an opportunity for us to make an unprecedented leap in evolution?) Good question, sir, good question. You see, we should not have waited until we have a catastrophe like this, or impending catastrophe, to change. But, nevertheless, you’re right. It’s possible that when we’re faced with such a great upheaval, then we will change and we’ll make a leap into the next level. Especially now, we still have a little time to change; it’s just that we need to act now, you see, to profit from this so-called catastrophic future awaiting us. We have to act now for all of humanity. Because along with our own survival and health, there is an entire planet that is in trouble, and everyone needs to be vegan to save it. It’s a very simple solution that we might overlook. Because if we all change to vegan, put down the animal products, then we would have a dream world – that I promise. Because like begets like. We forget that the Bible told us that “as we sow, so shall we reap.” That means if we create peace, compassion and harmony, then that’s what we will get. Now, the impending catastrophe that you mention, it might be motivating us to change, the whole humanity. But to benefit from this opportunity, more people must act now. All of us must. We face a very dangerous future if global warming continues. In fact, distinguished scientists and other United Nations members have been meeting throughout this year in preparation for the December Copenhagen summit, where they hope to reach agreement on a treaty to replace the Kyoto Protocol. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was just here in Washington D.C., making a historic address to the US Congress, and asked the United States to help to lead in halting climate change. I would ask the same even though I am not a Chancellor. I’m sure many of you are aware of the increasing number of global warming effects noted worldwide, so I will share just a few from the world and from the United States. 1. In the Arctic, North Pole, so much ice has already melted that scientists are forecasting an ice-free summer within as little as three to six years, which would be the first time in one million years! Meanwhile, Greenland is shedding 85 million tons of icebergs each day due to warming, and at a rate that is increasing by 7% each year. The West Antarctic Ice Shelf is also melting, with 3.3 meter sea level rises forecast that would threaten cities like in your country, New York, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. And if all of Antarctica and Greenland were to melt – meaning the ice – then the sea levels could rise to as much as 70 meters, which would be deadly or disastrous to most lives on Earth. 2. Glaciers across the globe are shrinking more quickly than researchers ever expected, leaving rivers and lakes gone, disappearing or drying, with no water for crops and billions who face food shortages due to water shortages, as well. 3. Due to rising sea levels, islands are sinking as we speak, with Tuvalu, Tonga and some 40 other island nations having to plan their whole country's migrations. They are being forced to join the already 20 million climate refugees today. The International Organization for Migration stated that there may be 200 million climate refugees by 2050. 4. According to researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, United States of America, worldwide the number of the most destructive Category 4 and 5 hurricanes has doubled over the past 35 years. Category 5 storms yield the highest level of destruction in major cities. Their intensity and duration have also increased by 75% since the 1970s. One of these storms whose effects can still be seen and felt was the 2005 Hurricane Katrina, which devastated, especially, areas of New Orleans, with people who are still recovering their homes and their lives today. I am so sorry the American people have had to suffer through such tragedies. Now, in the United States: 1. Close to a million acres of pine forest have been lost in the Rocky Mountains due to beetle infestation from global warming. Similar also in Canada but, due to the time limit, I cannot report to you everything, so now we just report about the United States. 2. In the state of Montana, the famous glaciers of Glacier National Park are now expected to disappear within a decade. 3. According to a new study by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Colorado River, which supplies water to seven Western states, is going dry. Famous river. 4. In fact, researchers say that the US West is facing a devastating drought crisis as snows from mountains are releasing vast reservoirs of water. 5. The sea level in North Carolina, USA, rose three times faster during the 20th century than during the previous 500 years. 6. The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that for the first time on record, in 2008, six consecutive tropical cyclones made landfall on the US mainland. The North Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean are the two areas with the strongest hurricane trends. You may ask, what is the main cause of this damage and destruction to the environment? Perhaps surprisingly, it’s not the coal industry or cars or planes or trains or boats or ships. It’s methane, which is produced primarily by the livestock industry. A new and just-published report by the respected Worldwatch Institute states that livestock is the largest single contributor to greenhouse gases, responsible for more than 51% of the total emitted. This report factors in an atmospheric heat-trapping effect of methane that is 72 times - 72 times! – larger than CO2, when averaged over a 20-year period. Furthermore, just days after the Worldwatch Institute report was released, NASA announced that methane actually contributes much more to global warming than previously understood and it traps 100 times the atmospheric heat over 20 years. And the largest source of methane is? You know - livestock. Now, facts such as these have caused people like esteemed climate expert Lord Stern of the United Kingdom to state in an interview that “Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world’s resources. A vegetarian diet is better.” So I quote exactly what he said. Now, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization reported that livestock raising is the single largest human use of land, the biggest source of water pollution, the number one cause of biodiversity loss, and the top producer of human-caused methane and nitrous oxide. In fact, the United Nations has named livestock as one of the biggest environmental problems of our time with 90% of the destruction of the Amazon rainforest since 1970 being for cattle and growing animal feed. Lush forests are being turned into barren fields at a rate of 36 football fields per minute –of rainforest are being destroyed as we are speaking. If you can imagine how big that is, how detrimental that is to our world... the rainforest is the lung of our planet; it’s the health of our co-citizens. And as the trees are felled and plants become more exposed and dry, they even emit carbon dioxide rather than absorb it. This is another danger that is attacking us. Next, meat consumption is a very serious threat to human health. You ask any scientist, they’ll tell you this. You ask all the responsible doctors, they’ll tell you this. In fact, one of the doctors is sitting there; Dr. Greger, I saw him there. Now, bacterial infections from food-borne illnesses originate largely in animal products, causing widespread illnesses, disability and even death for thousands of Americans each year. The top four bacteria are E. coli, salmonella, Campylobacter, and listeriosis. Studies have shown that bacteria from contaminated raw meat can remain even after washing a working surface. And it only takes a few cells of E. coli, for example, to kill a young child. Just a few cells of E. coli to kill a young child, a young, little, tender child. Imagine that, just a few cells. Add to that, the leading causes of death in the United States, like from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity. Every year, heart disease kills 632,000 Americans; cancer kills 560,000 Americans; stroke kills another 130,000 Americans; diabetes kills 72,000 Americans – just from meat eating. And we cry over war-related deaths. Who cries for these hundreds of thousands of Americans who die because of that piece of meat? Who cries for those young, helpless, innocent, little children who die just because of meat-related E. coli, just a few cells of it? So, ladies and gentlemen, meat is the worse killer than any war, don’t you agree? Yes or no? Yes! Thank you! Thank you! Then there are more diseases related to the production of the meat, like swine flu, which Dr. Michael Greger just explained very clearly, originates from animal farms. And the next pandemic, which could emerge any day now, any minute, could be worse for us, could be worse than swine flu. So, sir, to solve this, we do need to move quickly, and of course we know what to do, right? Yes? Be vegan. You know, yes or no? (Yes, we know.) Thank you. Wonderful people. Wonderful! You make my day. There is an advantage of time here, because one aspect of methane is that it dissipates in around 12 years’ time, whereas carbon dioxide, CO2, stays in the atmosphere for up to thousands of years. So, we remove the livestock-generated methane, and the planet cools fast! You see the logic? Yes. From many scientific studies, the health benefits of the vegan lifestyle are already clear. And there are entire communities such as Village of Peace in Israel, where thousands of vegan residents are free of diseases, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and even cancer. In the country of Ghana, there is a similar program where after becoming vegan for more than 20 years now, the villagers, the entire village, don't have malaria anymore; and you know how malaria attacks those countries in Africa. And the previous high infant mortality rate went down to zero. Before, high infant mortality rate… zero. I also applaud this program. So please pray with me, Mr. Pelletier, that everyone does wake up in time. Pray. I pray day and night that the Divine manifest in the physical realm and wake up the leaders of our nations, wake up the religious heads, wake up everybody in time so that they understand the urgency of our situation, and that they understand the solution of solving this dangerous crisis that is facing us. That is, we have to turn back to our caring and compassionate nature inside our heart. That’s very simple. We are that. We are compassion. We are merciful, we are caring. So, we just have been cheated. We have been misinformed up to now, so we did not know it. Being vegan worldwide is the advancement of compassion that will uplift and unify all cultures, bringing tranquility to humans and animals alike. The inner peace that comes from replacing killing with respect for all life will spread like a wave across the globe, elevate human hearts, and create a harmonious Eden on Earth. That will bring us all to a lasting Golden Era. Bless you. Thank you. I am positive we will do it. Yes? (Yes!) We can make it – just a little change, just a little change. Just a little piece of animal meat - change to vegetable protein. We have plenty nowadays. We have vegan sausages, we have vegan… all kinds of chicken, Shrimp look-alike – taste better! Thank you. I love Washington, D.C.! I love Washington people, you are so elite! Thank you! “(OK. What are your impressions of this conference?) (Well, I am truly very, very impressed by the advanced technology, even the advanced thinking. Because I come from a country where serious environmental problems are increasing. There are serious problems with famine rising. And I also work in planning to help people to sustain themselves using local resources. So, coming to this conference and discovering that we can feed people effectively with plant-based products that are produced in the community, there, I am really surprised and overwhelmed. What surprised me the most is the abundance of information delivered, especially by Supreme Master Ching Hai. Really, She has very seriously researched on the matter and has provided sufficient information to convince people to give up the meat diet and I really believe we must make a shift. So, changing the way of living towards more vegetarian, it is the best option available to Africa.)” “(You've eaten cooked food that is vegan-based, even fake meat, what is your impression? Is this the first time you’ve discovered it?) (This is my first time. I ate and I asked a person next to me, ‘But in the conference, they asked us to eat organic, vegetarian. But they give us meat here, why?’ She told me, ‘No, it is not meat. This is vegetarian meat, the fake meat.’ So I was surprised because I did not know how to distinguish between animal meat and vegetarian ‘meat’. So I really encourage people to eat vegetarian food. There’s no difference. You have the same taste, the same consistency on the palate. Anyway, I urge you to eat vegetarian food. And it also makes you healthy. That's the most interesting thing. It is the goal of food, a diet that allows you to be healthy. I am working in environment area, and I am defending public health. So there are a number of alternatives that, really, by attending this conference, I could integrate, bring it back to my country. I think She (Supreme Master Ching Hai) is someone who really deserves much attention through the richness and the depth of the matters She provides to the community, the messages of peace and love She brings along, and much more than that through a more sustainable lifestyle that grants a better health for the community. Really Her message deserves to be heard.)”

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 9 of 17

I am always grateful and I have a special place in my heart for the United States of America and her citizens as shining examples of the democratic spirit. I am always impressed by this young, self-made nation that has excelled in strength and leadership through her people’s sheer determination, sincerity and faith.(And now comes the moment we have all been waiting for, the moment when we get to greet our special Guest of Honor, Supreme Master Ching Hai.) (Hallo, Supreme Master Ching Hai. You look so beautiful!) Hallo, my love. Hallo, everyone. Thank you. (We are extremely grateful that You could join us here in Washington, D.C.) (Supreme Master Ching Hai, we have been discussing the urgency of climate change and the solutions to many of our problems, and that a vegan diet offers a solution. We also have been talking about the dawn of a new Golden Era here on Earth.) Yes. (We have many guests with us here this evening, as well as our worldwide viewers, who would like to ask You some questions. But before we begin the question-and-answer session, is there anything You would like to say to our guests and viewers?) Yes, I would like. I would like to thank all the beautiful people for coming. And I am very honored to be with them once again in the company of the great, goodhearted, intelligent people of America, including the distinguished guests, dignitaries, and illustrious speakers who are leaders in their fields of government, science, environment, and health. I have been listening quietly. Well, I have been in your country, the United States, many times, including the magnificent nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., and I have always been welcomed so much, so much, no matter where I go. For this, I am always grateful and I have a special place in my heart for the United States of America and her citizens as shining examples of the democratic spirit. I am always impressed by this young, self-made nation that has excelled in strength and leadership through her people’s sheer determination, sincerity and faith. And I believe that the courageous actions needed at this urgent time would be led by Americans. Your high standards of integrity and deep love for your families and country will bring about the crucial steps needed to save our precious planet, our home, and the one we want for our children and grandchildren. May this important event be fruitful and beneficial to the participants and the world. Thank you all for being here. God loves us all. God bless you all. Thanks a lot.(Thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for Your insightful words and for Your beautiful dress today. You look absolutely gorgeous.) Thank you. This is vegan fur. Vegan fur, it’s not real fur. (Yes.) I designed it. Also the jewelry. You know, right? Look at how beautiful… You don’t have to wear real fur. It’s beautiful. It’s much more beautiful. And you feel so light wearing it because you don’t have a bad conscience. And so warm, so warm. I have something better inside. I also designed it. Look at this. See? Look: Be Veg, Go Green, Save the Planet.(Master, You look like a queen.)Thanks a lot. I am the “queen of hearts!” “To the queen of heart is the ace of…” beauty! I don’t want to sing that song, it’s a little bit sad, so, we sing some better song. I leave you to do it. All right, let’s get down to business because all of you are busy.(Well, we have several questions that our guests this evening would like to ask You. Are You ready for us to begin?) Yes, ma’am. (Our first questioner is a software developer named Jerry Pelletier.)(Hi, my name is, like they said, Jerry Pelletier.) Welcome. (Thank you. My mother, Chanmo was a devoted follower of Your teachings for many, many years.) I know her. (Yes, I knew, I knew.) She’s a Buddhist nun. (Yes, yes.) Yes, and she’s a very, very beautiful woman. (Yes.) (My question is that this world we share and made up of many countries, and the activities of one country affect the health and wellbeing of other countries. It’s kind of… the analogy I can make is the smoking and non-smoking sections of a restaurant. So, right now I think the world is… there’s more smokers than non-smokers. So what can we do? Is it just one person at a time? Is it a country at a time? What can we do to get everybody on the same sheet of music to change the way we live to save this world we live in?)Yeah, what can we do? We have to change ourselves first. It begins with us. Since time immemorial, evolution always begins with the individual. If we want to change the world, we change ourselves first. Now, even if the government forbids smoking or drinking or drugs, but if people individually continue, then we have not made much difference. So now, we have to change. For example, we change a little bit, our habit, just a very little bit. Like, we put down that piece of meat, and then we replace it with tofu or some other vegetarian (vegan) protein. Just a little change, very little change, and then the world will change, and then we will continue to live here, and then we can have a better world. Everything will change for the better. Just a little change like that. Anything else you want to ask? Are you happy with my answer? (Very much so, thank You.) “(Fate brought me here today, because I think I learned some things here that convinced me to change some of the ways I live. Hopefully, I’ll be able to spread some of that word to change the way some other people live that are close to me. I'm certainly going to consider my diet. I can probably cut back on meat. I can probably get rid of, certainly, the red meat. It's the idea of compassion, and a whole different view of my impact on the Earth and on the planet. And listening to the Supreme Master and the sense of compassion and love that emanates from Her is just wonderful, so it was inspiring. It was like going to church today.)” “(So, what made the biggest impact on you while you were here?) (Actually, it was the presentation by the last speaker, Supreme Master Ching Hai, one of the most Godly… a woman full of wisdom, and Her ambiance of spirituality. Very deep. And She has a world view not just from the country that She represents, but a world view, in helping the world.)”“(So do you think you'll make any changes based on the things you heard today, any changes in your life?)(Yes, I'm going to change the way I eat. Absolutely!)”
