“Much of our chronic diseases comes from our habit of ingesting animal products. The pandemic that we just discussed, the water scarcity, the deforestation, all these things we are causing, and we are causing it with our mouth, right? I think it was Gandhi who said that the worst weapon of mass destruction in the hands of humans is a fork. Because it’s with the fork that we are killing the planet and we’re killing ourselves.”

Following the global state of emergency, on June 26, 2020, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai called for the World to Wake Up and Be Vegan. This powerful message is fully endorsed by the Venerable Tashi Nyima. “I fully endorse it because it is the overriding concern right now. People think, oh no, well, you know, the problem is climate change. But how do we deal with climate change? We deal with climate change by removing the fundamental cause, which is animal farming.”

The Venerable Tashi Nyima also expresses his full support for our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai’s urgent plea to all religious and spiritual leaders to guide and direct their followers to adopt the compassionate loving vegan diet. “Certainly, I fully endorse that call from the Supreme Master. I think it is very important, particularly for religious leaders to understand that this is the pressing issue of our time, right? If we do not address this, there will be no other issue that is important enough, because there will be no future for any of us. So I fully, fully embrace this call to all religious leaders, to try their very best, to convey the importance of abandoning all killing, abandoning all harm so that we can at least begin to heal this planet, or at the very least heal ourselves.”

“I actually have (seen Supreme Master Television). Yeah, since I mentioned, I used to go very frequently to the Loving Hut and they always had the screens going, And I saw many, many times the shows, ...there was a big musical event that I have seen, very beautiful.” “And I’ve heard some of the lectures on meditation and I always find them very uplifting and very clear and very accessible. I think it’s a great service, it’s a great service that you are doing for people in general in bringing them this message. That is the only message that will actually save this world.”
