Bomi (vegan) and Her Beloved Companion Rabbit, Toto

Bomi (vegan) and Her Beloved Companion Rabbit, Toto

Rabbits, domesticated or wild, offer their joyful energy to produce many benefits for the planet and the animals around them! Bomi will share with us her knowledge about her little furry friend and how to best care for rabbits as pets. “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.” “The first time we met was at a mart. I passed through the animal corner at the mart, but there were no other rabbits there, and this rabbit was alone there. I was just going to overlook it, but when I looked closely, he had a skin disease and a mass of his hair here was taken out, maybe because of the skin disease. There were some problems with his eyes, and his nose also lost hair due to the skin disease. And I couldn’t leave him alone, so I finally adopted him. I took him to a hospital and got him diagnosed, gave him medicine, and disinfected the eyes, so now he has recovered completely even from the skin disease.” “It’s important what you feed to them when you raise a rabbit. Because the food that rabbits should eat and the food that rabbits like are often different.” “The rabbit’s staple is hay, but Toto is eating ryegrass. When they are young, you feed them alfalfa, but Toto is an adult, so Timothy hay and ryegrass are the staple foods.” Toto's ears won't miss the rustling sound of a snack bag! Just imagining it makes me feel good. “One day, I released Toto to play in the yard. But after I released him, I wondered where Toto went, so when I looked at the backyard, there was a magpie, and Toto was really close to the magpie. They were so close to each other. The moment I saw it, it was as if Toto was talking to the bird. It was so amazing, so I approached it and the magpie flew away, but anyway, it was amazing.”

The Young World Changers, Part 3 of a Multi-part Series

An 11-year-old schoolgirl, Tamsyn Grillett from New South Wales spent her school holiday making care packages for those impacted by the bushfires in Australia. So far thirty-two toiletry packs have been sent to the NSW (New South Wales) RFS (Rural Fire Service) Commission. Allysha Nicole Nolasco, a 10-year-old Calgarian girl, was one of the three Calgary recipients of the Diana Award, a humanitarian award given to young people annually in memory of the Princess of Wales, Princess Diana. The young humanitarian used her art making skills and singing abilities to raise money for many organizations, such as Ronald McDonald House, the Canadian Cancer Society, a shoebox campaign for Samaritan's Purse, etc.Tunisha grew up watching her father support the NGO Seva Kitchen, which recently donated clothes and food to flood victims. An idea came to her which she shared with her father, about collecting stationary, books, or book bags for children. Within two months and with the help of her father, Tunisha had donated 1000 bags to the NGO Goonj, 1800 bags to low-income government schools in Nagpur and the suburbs, and 2000 bags to farm children in Melghat.Hita Gupta was a volunteer at retirement homes in Pennsylvania, USA, until the COVID-19 pandemic set in. The volunteers were let go to ensure the safety of at-risk residents. She and her brother Divit made care packages including a hand-written note and pre-recorded video messages to retirement homes in Pennsylvania through their non-profit organization Brighten A Day. Fourteen kittens were left behind on a running track near Moonee Ponds, Lucinda, a young girl from Australia, who lived nearby happened to come across them and promptly rescued them.

Amelia Nidelea-Polanin (vegan) - Spirited Wrestler for the Animals

Amelia Nidelea-Polanin (vegan) - Spirited Wrestler for the Animals

Yes, as a matter of fact I did. Amelia is from Illinois, USA. Like many 11-year-olds, she is into all kinds of sports, such as Jiu Jitsu and swimming, but wrestling is her favorite. She started wrestling when she was just 6 years old and has been a very successful competitor. She is a straight A student and the winner of PETA Kids’ 2020 Cutest Vegan Kid Contest. Our Supreme Master Television team members interviewed Amelia via Zoom in March this year. Let’s hear what she said. “I became vegan because loving and hurting someone at the same time is not right. Veganism is a lifestyle and plant-based is a diet. I'm very strong. I never get tired. I can do two hours of wrestling and then go straight to swim practice for one and a half hours.” Even though she is only 11 years old, she has attended many protests, such as Canadian Goose protest, Horse Carriage Protest, Anonymous For The Voiceless events, vigils, etc. Does Amelia have any advice for young people wanting to go vegan? “Tell your parents, you choose not to harm animals and you refuse to eat animal products. And that you need help and support because this is really important to you. And then after, show them the vigils that encouraged you to make the change.” Does Amelia have a role model? Who does she admire? “The person who I admire the most is my mom, because she organizes the AV (anonymous to the voiceless) Cube of Truth in Chicago. And she always gets up in the early morning to do vigils every day, every week. And, and she doesn't care about the weather. She always goes just for the animals.” What is her advice for people who are already vegan? “Being vegan is not enough, you need to stand, I mean stand for them at every opportunity.” What is Amelia’s wish for our world? “A vegan world of course. And I would say also a suffering-free world for everyone.”

Vegans Are Cool, Part 7 of a Multi-part Series

The lovely Melody from Sydney, has a big heart. After winning first prize in drawing for her age group, she donated her prize money to help sick children in hospitals. “Animals are so cute, we love animals. I told my friends to be vegan to keep animals happy.” “I want to be a doctor and a vet so I can help animals and people at the same time!” Some kids from Yilan are also going green by planting vegetables in the garden. While busy in the field, Li Kai Er shared with us his reasons for being vegan. “I love animals and the Earth. So, I'm a vegan. Being a vegan makes me healthier. I don't get fat.” Next, we will visit Toronto, Canada, to meet Noah Porter-Rosensweig, who is passionate about protecting animals. According to Noah’s mom, Ms. Miriam Porter, who is a vegan writer and actress, Noah has always been empathetic towards other sentient beings. He participated in his first peaceful protest at age four and became vegan at five. On January 26, the seven-year-old Noah joined a protest in front of the marine aquarium in Toronto. During another demonstration against the fur industry, Noah became known as “the powerhouse” among the protestors, as he passed out over 300 flyers. After reading about the horror of this cruel industry, some people immediately returned the fur coats they recently bought! In the United States, a 2020 study shows that approximately 9.6 million people are following the plant-based diet. Look, the little girl Lena already knows a lot about being vegan. “No, I don't like that!” “Because I am vegan!” “Making everybody eat vegan saves the whole planet!” The 16-year-old Ping from Bangkok, Thailand, will now give a short presentation on an important issue. “Firstly, performances such as circuses should be animal free, because using living animals to perform tricks is unethical. Secondly, it’s to ensure the animal and human safety. Using animals is immoral as people are forcing animals to do tricks against their own will.”

Into the World of Rescue Animals with Ms. Leslie Crawford (vegan), Part 2 of 2

Into the World of Rescue Animals with Ms. Leslie Crawford (vegan), Part 2 of 2

Today, Ms. Leslie will introduce us to another one of her books entitled, “Gwen the Rescue Hen.” “Did you know chickens are good at math? They also love to play with the people they trust. Since there’s a lot more to know about chickens than what ends up on our plates, we’ve published a children’s book celebrating… ‘Gwen the Rescue Hen.’ It’s a story of a hen who dreams of something more… until a tornado sets her free!” “What I did with my book is based on a true story of how an animal could actually escape their fate, that millions of animals have been going to industrial slaughterhouses. So for Gwen, there was a slaughterhouse, or you know, industrial farm that was in a tornado.” “What I did with my book is based on a true story of how an animal could actually escape their fate, that millions of animals have been going to industrial slaughterhouses. So for Gwen, there was a slaughterhouse, or you know, industrial farm that was in a tornado.” “And so when I wrote that book, ‘Gwen the Rescue Hen,’ I wanted to write it and try to convey how smart they are in ways that is not what we think of as smart. But they're incredible animals. They have this like amazing ability to see, the way their eyes are constructed. They can see so many more colors than we see. They see the world in this magnified way, and very smart about protecting themselves.” Ms. Crawford showed us how smart and amazing chickens are. “Sprig the Rescue Pig” and “Gwen the Rescue Hen” allow us to explore the intelligence and emotions of animals, even though some people still consider them as “livestock.” How can we help them understand? “And hope that the smallest thing they can do [is] to really think about how they're treating other creatures, and do a little bit better every day, that they'll get there, the way I did. My wish is that everybody would stop eating animals. But I need to also have compassion for them and just encourage them to do the best they can, even if it's a small thing every day.” Change can happen from small actions every day, and change can happen from reading a children’s book.

Into the World of Rescue Animals with Ms. Leslie Crawford (vegan), Part 1 of 2

“First, there was Wilbur… …then came Babe. And now… Sprig the Rescue Pig! Our hero starts this adventure tale on a truck bound for nowhere good… But this little pig escapes! ‘Run, Sprig, Run!’ Sprig discovers what it means to be a pig… …and meets a girl named Rory, and her mom.” What we just watched is a short introduction about a wonderful children’s book “Sprig the Rescue Pig” written by Ms. Leslie Crawford from San Francisco, USA. An experienced journalist and editor, Ms. Crawford also wrote another book “Gwen the Rescue Hen.” An animal lover, Ms. Crawford is a vegan and lives with her companions, Bix the dog, four pigeons and eight chickens, all of whom are rescues. Her books show us how amazing the animals are and why they deserve to be treated like family and friends. "Sprig the Rescue Pig" is Ms. Crawford’s first book. What kind of message is Ms. Crawford trying to convey through this story? “It was the idea to reach both children and their parents in a very gentle way to talk about, (and) really look at, who a pig is, a pig is not bacon or ham, and get to know this animal in a deeper way than maybe some children's stories do. Really this is as much as it's possible.” Pigs are so adorable. We wish all pigs in this world are safe and loved. Ms. Crawford shares with us the future world she envisions. “I can see that world so easily. That world is where we all really see each other with compassion and that we don't look at a plant or an animal or a person as something that's in service to us, but that we are all interested in their goodwill and giving them a good life just as we want.”

The Young World Changers, Part 2 of a Multi-part Series

Our world faces climate change, environmental destruction, and a global pandemic. Many humans and animals are suffering from hunger, sickness, homelessness, or other misfortunes. Young people around the world have been standing up to voice their concerns and are lending a helping hand. First, let’s meet the 12-year-old Yasmine Qubain from Jordan. In 2019, Yasmine set up her own online business, JazzBeads with the goal of “giving back to society.” She understands the hardships that many families have been through due to the loss of their loved ones. By December 2020, she had donated all of her earnings, which was over JD6,000 (or US$8,463) to King Hussein Cancer Centre. High school students from Linda Tutt High School in Sanger, Texas, operate a grocery store that gives out free food for those dealing with COVID-19. After hearing people in developing countries having to walk all day to fetch clean water, Finley Johnston, a young boy from Canada, set out to walk 350km and raised CAD3,000 (about US$2,400) towards building wells. Touched by his noble deeds, his sister Grace joined him and donated her own money to the cause. In Seattle, USA, 62 year old Tony found himself homeless for the first time. The thirteen-year-old Liem Kaplan helped him find a hotel to stay in. “He’s an angel.” said Tony about his new friend Liem. In India, a young girl voiced her concerns about her country’s new law. Like any 11-year-old student, Gursimrat Kaur spends a lot of time studying. She’s also out protesting with thousands of farmers at the Delhi border. Gursimrat is out there protesting in hope of making a difference. The younger generation is very serious about saving the planet. They want to do everything they can to combat the climate crisis. While checking the damages caused by the wildfire in his uncle’s property in Kangaroo Island, Australia, Micah Lovegrove and his cousin discovered a group of injured koalas on the property. The teenagers loaded them into their car and drove them to the neighbor who had a permit for taking care of wildlife.

Tributes to Fathers

Tributes to Fathers

I feel elated that you have joined us today to commemorate Father’s Day, which happens on the third Sunday of June each year. A day where fatherhood and a father’s contributions to their children are recognized and celebrated. The founder of father’s day Ms. Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington, United States, observed the first Father’s Day on Sunday, June 19, 1910. Raised by a widower with 6 children, Ms. Dodd wished her father would receive equal honor as mothers on Mother’s Day. Since then, Father’s Day has become a worldwide celebration. Our beloved Master, reminds us to remember our father’s grace. “Today let’s remember our father’s grace. Remember his unconditional contribution. We should also remember to be a spiritual practitioner like that. Being a father, just taking care of a few children, he’s already working so hard and devoting all his unconditional love.”Today, on Father’s Day, vegan kids from around the world are showing their gratitude and appreciation for their fathers in their own unique ways. First, Johnson from Sydney, Australia, would like to say a few heart-warming lines to his father. “A strong and silent man. Yet he wields a loving and gentle hand. The protector of my soul. The foundation of my life. You may wonder who is this man. But to me, he is the one I call Dad. Happy Father’s Day.” Now two young kids share a Father’s Day song in Spanish, the native language of Mexico.Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai encourages us to be most aware of how much our parents provide for us and never take it for granted. “Do something, you know. Yeah? No need Father’s Day. We can celebrate anytime we feel we love the father so much that the father sacrifice so much for us. We must know he sacrificed. Where does the house come from? Where does the food come from? Where do your clothes come from? All from the parents. So every time you wear something, you eat something, that is the time you should remember the parents even. No need to wait once a year.”

Vegans Are Cool - Meet the Junior Game Changer in Korea

Have you ever lifted or moved an object weighing 69kg? It’s like lifting about 510 apples or two 10-year-old friends at the same time. Ha-rang won three gold medals in the 49kg weightlifting class at the national competition on July 16, 2020, with 59kg in the snatch and 69kg in the clean and jerk, 128kg total, the best record of them all. Ha-rang also won the Best Player Award on that day. It appeared that Ha-rang won the gold medal in the national competition with only one year of training! What is her secret? “I didn’t like that animals are in pain, and I feel their pain, so I’ve been on a vegan diet. Benefits of being vegan? As an athlete, I can tell you many, for example, better stamina than other players.” Harang’s mother, who has always stood by her side, shared with us her daughter’s amazing growth. “The gymnastics coach told me that he had a lot of doubt about Ha-rang’s capabilities because she didn’t eat meat. However, her muscle elasticity and skills were never behind others. On the contrary, she became better than other kids. So, the teachers changed to support her and encouraged her vegan diet.” Ha-rang is indeed a Junior Game Changer in the sports arena in Korea. “I replaced pork cutlet with soy cutlet for her lunch box, and replaced Jjajang with vegan Jjajang, for example, to be as similar as possible. So that she can get along well with other kids during the mealtime.” “Another surprise came from the nutritionist of the school. She wanted to reduce the meat for the children’s sake, and she found Ha-rang and believed she is a good role-model for it. Thankfully, the school meals menu really changed pretty much after that.” Together, the mother and daughter have brought positive changes to the school and are making vegan food more available to other kids. Ha-rang is one of the living proofs that a vegan diet can bring great physical benefits and even a competitive edge for athletes.

The Young World Changers, Part 1 of a Multi-part Series

In Part 1 of this series, we will present to you several kids around the world who have taken courageous actions to save our beloved planet, hence save us, the animals. First, we will introduce to you the 14-year-old environmental activist, Junior from Côte d’Ivoire. At the UN Human Rights Council on July 1st, 2020, Junior spoke out against the alleged industrial pollution that includes the cocoa production sector in his hometown San-Pédro. He pleaded to the delegates, “I want the authorities to take this question of the environment to heart. Because we children are suffering a lot.” Besides Junior, in Colombia, 11-year-old Francisco Vera is a well-known environmentalist and defender of children’s rights and animals’ rights. In 2019, Francisco started an environmental group called Guardians of Life in Villeta. Together with six of his school friends, they picked up rubbish while chanting slogans about climate change all the way to the town center. The group has now expanded to include not only over 200 members in Colombia, but also those from Mexico and Argentina. For example, in the Capricorn region of Queensland, Australia, with the help of the 5-year-old Yeppoon wildlife Warrior, Owen Harris, three green sea turtles returned to the ocean after recovering from horrific injuries from irresponsible fishing. The seven-year-old Rayer has been cleaning up the beaches since she learned how to walk! For five years, she has been patrolling and cleaning up the 55-mile stretch of beach with her eco-conscious family! Ana, do you know what multilayered packaging is? To tackle this problem, Safai Bank has been set up in India to get school kids involved in collecting multi-layered packing materials (MLPs) and sending them to be processed for construction use. Currently there are 50,000 students from 180 schools who are account holders of this bank. Last year, they had prevented over 2,200,000 MLPs from going to landfills. Go kids! We, animal friends appreciate all of your actions to preserve nature.To conclude our show, let us hear a special rendition of the song “Someday” by a few vegan kids from Indonesia.

Celebrate International Day of Families with Love

Celebrate International Day of Families with Love

Today is the International Day of Families! You know, our family members like our parents, siblings, and relatives are the most important people to us. Family can also include anybody who is important to us, people who care about us, people who love us, and people we love. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke about how peace in the family is connected with peace in the world. “If a family is stable, and the parents are setting good virtuous examples, the children definitely would not grow up to become bad people. Even if there are exceptions, they are very few. They won't fall to a very bad level. World peace originated from peace in the family. In Chinese we say, cultivate ourselves, harmonize the family, govern the country, and pacify the world. We contribute our best quality to society and family. By offering the best to our family, we are offering the best to society and to the world.” So, to celebrate International Day of Families, would you like to learn how to make some crafty gifts for your family? We will use recycled materials and turn something old and useless into something beautiful and useful. That way we have less things going to the trash that pollute our planet. You won’t even have to spend more money on new things either. First, let’s learn how to make a piece of art to hang on the wall. We need toilet paper rolls, a large piece of cardboard, glitter, green and brown paint, a ruler and some glue. Following the lines, cut the roll. Glue 5 of the glittered pieces together to make one flower. Finally, apply the varnish to the inside of the petals, sprinkle glitter to the insides of the petals. The next thing we will learn to make is a storage box. How about a pen holder for your brother? The International Day of Families is another chance for us to express our love for our close ones. Who knows? Maybe we can make a difference in the world too, like Supreme Master Ching Hai told us. “If everyone fulfills their responsibility, like parents are very protective to their children, and children are very filial to the elders, then the world will become peaceful. Everything comes from family. Consequently, the natural disasters and wars will become less and less.”

Honoring All Mothers, Today and Every Day

Honoring All Mothers, Today and Every Day

Today is Mother’s Day, a day dedicated to all mothers for the comfort, protection, and guidance they have offered to children. For this occasion, a number of vegan kids have created their own unique expressions of love and gratitude toward their mothers. Let’s hear from vegan kids around the world expressing their love to their mothers and our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai. “Thank you mum for your love, passion, and hard work for bringing me up as a vegan, telling me about the world, the universe and about Supreme Master Ching Hai, I love both of you. Wishing my mum, Supreme Master Ching Hai, and all mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day.” Up next, Saifa from Bangkok will perform a touching song “Mother of Mine.” “Mother, you gave me happiness, much more than words can say. I pray the Lord that Hes may bless you every night and every day…”On this day, while we send well-wishes to our mothers, we can not forget that animals have mothers too. Animals may appear different than us, but the bond between mothers and their young are the same as ours. “In another story, a mother sheep was about to be killed at a restaurant in China. She was with her son, a small lamb, and she was licking the tears from his face because he knew she was going to be killed. The waiter picked up the lamb and was shocked to find that he had been hiding the butcher’s knife underneath himself to save his mother’s life, hoping… When the restaurant owner heard what happened, he was so moved that he spared the life of mother and child and quit his business.”There is one holy Mother whom we forget to appreciate sometimes in our daily lives – Mother Earth. Supreme Master Ching Hai reminded us how much we are loved by Mother Earth in the following words. “Don't forget that we have a very beautiful home here for us and for our children. And for grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, it's a beautiful place, physically speaking, and it has all conditions to sustain life. And it offers us so much, so much. So much fun, so much beauty, so much love.”

The Wonderful Adventures of Nils

12:02

The Wonderful Adventures of Nils

“The Wonderful Adventures of Nils” is a children’s novel written by the Swedish teacher and writer Ms. Selma Lagerlöf. She was the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize in literature. The story begins with the main character in this book, Nils Holgersson. Nils Holgersson was a nice-looking and clever young boy, except that he was very naughty, disobedient, and a trouble maker. The saddest thing about him was that he enjoyed hurting animals. One day, his parents left him at home and asked him to finish his schoolwork. Nils fell asleep while he read. When he woke up he was surprised to find an elf in his room. He treated the elf so badly that the elf had to shrink him into the size of a butterfly. However, he found himself to have the ability to communicate with animals. He discovered that due to his mischievous behaviors, the animals on the farm disliked him. Only Martin, a gander goose befriended him. Since all of the farm animals were out for revenge, Nils and a little hamster jumped on Martin’s back and joined a flock of wild geese flying across Sweden. After Nils saved one of the wild goose from a fox attack, the flock readily accepted him as their travel companion. This unusual journey allowed Nils to discover the world and learn valuable lessons from the animals. “If you have learned anything from us, Nils, you no longer think that the humans should dominate the whole earth to please themselves. Animals need space too so that we can all live together in peace. Animals also have a right to their own freedom, their own families and their own life.” Nils’s journey turned out to be a blessing in disguise. He gained his humanity after losing his human form and became friends with the animals. “The Wonderful Adventuress of Nils” is a heartwarming tale that gently shows us the right way to live with our animal friends. Almost a century after its publication, Ms. Selma Lagerlöf’s tale of Nils is still relevent today, when eating and raising animals for food are causing global crises, such as climate change and global pandemics. It’s time for us to take the journey like the young boy Nils to re-discover our compassionate nature, be vegan, and be kind to all animals in order to save our humanity and the world.

Vegans Are Cool, Part 5

Today, we are pleased to present to you Joseph and Mary, a brother and sister from Surrey, UK, who grew up living a vegan lifestyle. “I want to become an artist when I grow up, and I wish the world to be more peaceful and no more coronavirus disease and other natural disasters.” “I am six years old. When I grow up, I would want to be an artist. I want the world to be vegan and peaceful and no animals are suffering. If you sincerely care, please say NO to meat!” Next, let’s meet Aaron, Angel and Emily from Taoyuan, Taiwan, also known as Formosa. “Being vegan can save the Earth, save the animals and save ourselves. I am a vegan. Being vegan makes you smarter and healthier.” “I support veganism. Animals are our friends. They have lives too. Don’t drink milk. It hurts (the cows). I drink soy milk and other plant-based milk.” “Pray for a vegan world. Be Vegan, Go Green, to Save the Human race. Don’t eat meat, because the coronavirus is caused by meat-eating. Being vegan makes one healthy and pretty, and become as lovely as I am.” Up next is Jay, an adorable vegan kid from Malaysia. “I am 11 years old. I like to cook vegan food. My role model is my grandfather. He is a vegan chef and vegan restaurant owner. I’d like to open a vegan restaurant and be the best vegan chef, when I grow up.” Our last vegan hero is Madeline from Jakarta, Indonesia. "I am vegan because animals have feelings like all humans do, and animals don’t want to be killed or hurt. Well, when I grow up, I want to be a singer, like Beyoncé or Rachel Platten. My wish for the planet is for it to be healthy, so that humans can live happily ever after. I dream of a vegan world. Be Veg, Go Green, 2 Save the Planet!”

Mandala - The Magical Circle, Part 2 of 2

Mandala - The Magical Circle, Part 2 of 2

Today, we will further explore its presence in our world and beyond, and the profound meaning behind mandala art creation. Can you think of more places that the mandala design can be found in our life? Many buildings around the world have circular ceiling or rooftops, with beautiful centered designs. Have you ever walked a labyrinth? These are ancient patterns found in cathedrals, churches, public and private gardens all over the world. It was originally designed mainly for centering meditative practices. Look at all the planets, they are circular, like 3-D mandalas. And they rotate in circular motions too. The universe never ceases to amaze us. Ms. Aziza is an artist, storyteller, and dancer from Canada. “And I found it very calming and very centering for before meditation. So one day out of the blue, I wanted to paint a mandala. I didn’t know anything about painting. It took about three weeks to complete the whole entire sketch. It’s entitled, ‘All In One, One In All.’” Ms. Aziza will show us how to create a simple mandala. “Play, play with colors, and shapes, and lines, and dots, and whatever comes through you, it’s perfect. There’s no mistake when you create mandalas or any art, because it is from you and that’s good enough.” Did you know that we can find mandala designs in many of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s artistic works too? “As I said before, if we are in tune with Heaven, there are Heavenly blessings hidden within our artwork.

Mandala - The Magical Circle, Part 1 of 2

Mandala - The Magical Circle, Part 1 of 2

First, let us take a look at some of the amazing pictures. Aren’t they beautiful? Do you see any commonalities between the artworks? Yes, they all have circles, or are in circular shapes. All of them can be categorized as mandalas, the Sanskrit word for circle or wholeness. Sanskrit is a classical Indian language. The circular design of mandalas gives us a sense that everything in the universe is connected and life continues forever. As shared in the pictures, the easiest place to find mandala images are in nature. They are everywhere. Although the mandala is usually a spiritual symbol that represents the universe in Hinduism and Buddhism, mandalas appear in all ancient cultures throughout the world. Tibetan monks create sand mandalas as a prayerful meditative practice. At the other end of the globe, we can watch a demonstration of a Navajo Sand Painting, which is also a sacred art. It conveys the God’s power. Here different colored sands are used with skillful fingers. The Aztec calendar is a mandala that is a sacred calendar of the Mexica. The geometric diagram shows two very different calendar systems, one being the 365-day agricultural year that we follow and the other is a 260-day sacred year where the days are described according to the Aztec gods. Interestingly, mandalas are also in the astrological zodiac signs.Making mandala art helps us concentrate in the present moment, a powerful relaxation tool that promotes inner harmony and balance, that is also not difficult to create. Have you ever made a nature mandala? Here’s how to do it. Let’s gather in a circle. To collect elements for our mandala, we split into groups, maximum of five people. Each group goes out into the surrounding area gathering natural elements without cutting or destroying anything. The intention is to connect and act mindful. As you search for things to use, you can explore their energy, their story and their strengths. Whatever you take, maintain respect for the place and cultivate gratitude.

The Magic School Bus

10:39

The Magic School Bus

It’s an American-Canadian animated children’s TV series, based on the book series by Ms. Joanna Cole and Mr. Bruce Degen. The first Magic School Bus was written in 1985 followed by another a year later. Since then, Ms. Cole has written over 250 books, and “The Magic School Bus” book series have sold more than 93,000,000 copies in 13 countries! How amazing! Each book took Mr. Degen and Ms. Cole over a year to produce and finalize. The TV series “The Magic School Bus” was originally shown from 1994 to 1997. It was among the highest-rated PBS shows for school-age children. What’s intriguing about this series is that before the end of each show, you hear the short song, “Is This the Magic School Bus?” Then “the Producer” appears to answer all your curious questions about the episode. “It’s a substance called ‘carotene’ that your body can’t get rid as fast as other food colors.” “So, you mean if I eat too much food with carotene. I would turn orange? Like Arnold?” Imagine if you get to experience all the wild and cool trips with your friends in school. “A field trip!” “Welcome to outer space, class! The only planetarium open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And how are all my astronauts doing?” “We’re weightless!” Ms. Frizzle encourages her students to explore and learn while having fun doing it. Who wouldn’t love a cool teacher with a shape-shifting Magic School Bus? A new series called “The Magic School Bus Rides Again” was released on Netflix in 2017. We hope “The Magic School Bus” will answer some of your questions and help you understand nature better. Hence, in the future, you can invent something that is beneficial to humanity.

MeatOut Day

MeatOut Day

Did you know that March 20 is MeatOut Day? This campaign was started by Farm Animal Rights Movement or (FARM) in 1985 to honor and protect our animal friends, respect their rights to live, as well as introducing the plant-based diet. The main MeatOut message is clear: Take Action today for the animals. A group of vegan kids affiliated with the AnimalHeroKids.org charity are here to voice their concerns for the animals’ wellbeing. “I don’t think pigs like living on factory farms.” “When you look at them, they look very frightened. You can tell how scared they are.” “I feel that it’s very sad for these animals to get turned into food.” “The vegetarian population in South Korea has increased 10 times over the past decade to 1.5 million, and the vegan industry, which was limited to food, is expanding to all fields such as clothing and cosmetics. Being vegan is no longer difficult. Prepare flour, water, yeast, salt, sugar, grape seed oil, ketchup, vegan cheese, and toppings you prefer. Now I'm putting down the (vegan) cheese Vegan pizza is complete!” Three beautiful girls from Taiwan, also known as Formosa, will demonstrate for us how to make it at home. “Today, we are going to make the most classic food - vegan pearl milk tea. For brown sugar pearls: 100 grams of tapioca flour, 50 grams of brown sugar powder, and 65 grams of water.” “Now the dough is ready. Then you can make small pearls, medium pearls, and large pearls according to what you like. Now we are going to cook them.” “Apart from adding soy milk, we can also add tofu pudding to the pearls.” “Our pearls can be made from different fruits.” Here’s a toast to Bubble Tea for MeatOut Day! So, what can we do to celebrate MeatOut day? We can be vegan and encourage our family and friends to go meat free. We can send letters to our local government or newspaper and ask them to proclaim MeatOut day in our hometown.

The Story of a Boy and an Apple Tree

The Story of a Boy and an Apple Tree

Today, I will share with you, “The Story of a Boy and an Apple Tree.” It’s an adaptation of the story, “The Giving Tree,” written by the award-winning American writer, Shel Silverstein. Once upon a time, a boy came upon a lovely apple tree. He said to the tree: “Hi friend, can I stay here and play with you? The air is fresh, and the view of the sunset is most beautiful.” “You are welcome to stay for as long as you like. I will gladly share this place with you. We can play and watch the sunset together.” Years went by, and as the boy grew, he couldn’t visit the tree as often. The tree was now often alone. Then one day the boy, who had grown to a young man, came to the tree. “I have come to say goodbye, my friend. I’m going to college.” “That’s great! I’m so happy for you. Remember, you will always have a faithful friend here who will always pray and help you.” One day, years later, the young man returned and sat under the tree and said nothing. Overjoyed, the tree said: “Welcome back, my friend! I am so happy to see you! Why are you so quiet and sad? What’s the problem?” “I need money, but I don't know how to get it.” “That’s easy, I bear a lot of fruits, you can pick them and sell them in the city. Then you will have all the money that you need.”“To raise my family, I need a house and I don’t know how to get one.” “Oh, that’s easy. You may cut my branches to build a house for your family.” …The man grew old and he missed his childhood friend, the apple tree. He came looking for her. “You're back, my friend. How are you? Is there anything I can do for you?” “My friend, I am old and tired. I don’t need much anymore. All I need is a peaceful place to rest.” “Oh, I have just the place for you. Come and rest on my tree stump.” “This is perfect. Thank you, dear friend, from the bottom of my heart. Looking back, I have realized that all my life I had come to you only when I needed something, and you always stood by me. Thank you.” What a tender and touching story. It makes me want to cry. Trees are such noble beings. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai told us just how amazing they are! They are our true friends, who bless us and serve us quietly and unconditionally. Let’s remember that and strive to protect and honor them. Please join us in singing this “Friend Song” dedicated to all the good friends in our lives.

Always Alive - The Journey of a Wild Daisy Seed

Always Alive - The Journey of a Wild Daisy Seed

Have you ever wondered about the life of a seed? Today, we have just the story on this subject, for you entitled, “Always Alive” written by Ms. Irene RialBou from Puerto Rico. “Little Whirlwind needed to reach the coast, so he could carry those who give oxygen to the Earth. For that reason, he stood impetuous between the wall and the road full of cars that came and went. Thus began the story of Wild Daisy…” Before we continue the story, let’s take a moment to learn how to plant flowers with Princess Sprinkles. “Hi, I’m Princess Sprinkles, and I’m going to teach you how to plant beautiful flowers, right here.” “As if she were a reflection of the stars on Earth, and so that everyone could share the dream of caressing them, Wild Daisy now spreads throughout the world. With her corolla of five, eight, thirteen, twenty-one, thirty-four or fifty-five petals, she protects herself from heat or cold. But she always, always, always finds her way.” “My name is Irene RialBou. I’m a Puerto Rican author. And I am the author of “Always Alive.” I’m a woman. I’m a daughter. I’m a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a friend, a human being. But foremost, I believe in peace, compassion, love. “Always Alive” is a story that follows the journey of a brave seed, last seed until it blooms into a wild daisy. As any journey, it’s filled with perils and difficulties. But also with friends that will help the seed to succeed in its new life as a flower. This story is an invitation to reflect on the different aspects of nature, how we can reconnect with it and how we can learn from it. Every single character is an expression of unity, of nature, and the unity we must have with the natural world.”
