Mozi was an ancient Chinese philosopher. Mozi’s teachings encompass self-reflection to attain true self knowledge, universal love and enlightened self-interest in social relations. In this program, an excerpt from the book Mozi is introduced. Why was the emperor successful in governing the empire? It was because he could unify the purposes in the empire that the empire is orderly. But to carry the process of Identification with the Superior up to the Son of Heaven, and not further up to Heaven itself, then the jungle from Heaven is yet not removed.

And on this New Year’s Eve, we are bringing to you a cooking show by two young children from Ottawa, whom have been vegans since birth. “We will cook vegan pizza and vegan mini cheesecakes.” “Here are all the ingredients that you would need to make the vegan pizza. We have made sure that all the ingredients are vegan. You will need: vegan pizza crust, vegan tomato sauce and vegetables of your choice. For the proteins, we are using vegan pepperoni, but you can also use vegan sausages. And for the best of all, the vegan cheese! The vegetables we are using: zucchini, broccoli, pineapple, mushrooms, tomatoes and olives.”“Our first step is to chop the veggies. After spreading your sauce onto the pizza crust, you can start to put the vegetables onto the crust. And lastly, to finish off the pizza, we will put vegan cheese over it. Once you’ve finished, you can bring your pizza to the oven.”“Now that the pizza is done, let's continue with our mini vegan cheesecake. For the crust, we’re using vegan cookies, and you can use any brand that is vegan. And you also need vegan butter. Now, after you had crushed your vegan cookies with your hands, you can start putting them into the blender to make it even more fine. After pulsing the cookies (vegan), we’re going to put them into a bowl. We are going to add 6 tablespoons of vegan butter Make sure they’re equal. Once the mixture is done, we’re going to put 1 tablespoon into each pie crust, and press it down. After pressing down the crust, we’re going to put them into the oven.”“While that’s baking, we can start on the vegan cream. These are the ingredients to make the cream (vegan). You will need: 1 and a half cup of cashews, a full pack of vegan cream cheese, ¼ cup of maple syrup and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Put all the cashews into the blender and pulse it. Now, move it over and put everything in. Put back the lid, and pulse it. After pulsing a couple of times, it will become the actual cream.”“After baking the pie crust, we’re now going to add three tablespoons of vegan cream. Now that all of our cupcakes are done, we can put them into the freezer for about 20 minutes. After we have taken out the mini cheesecakes from the freezer, take out the wrapper, and this is the final result. Now we’re going to put some vegan whip cream and some sprinkles for the decorations.”
Veganism: The Noble Way of Living

You’re lucky to be alive, to be left alone to do your job. Not that we need any land or anything. It’s just nicer to have a place, stable, where we don’t need visa, where we don’t need to put up all our properties to guarantee our return to native land. And then we can freely maybe live together and contribute to the world in different ways, in the free way. Today, we have freedom, free world and all that, but we don’t have a world. Not that free. So that’s why you have to come all this way, and always have to spend money and time, and rushing to the airport, and rushing to catch the bus or the taxi or airplane. Even with all the hardship that you have to go through with visa and with arrangements for job and family and everything. Thank you for loving me so much. Thank you. I hope my love is good enough for you because I also do love you. Each one of you tells me, many people told me that she or he thinks that I love him or her alone. Is that correct? (Exactly. Yes.) Yeah? Exactly? Okay. Then it’s good. That means you are happy, you’re satisfied, and you feel contented that I don’t neglect you or abandon you, only love him better because he’s handsome, and loving him because he’s older. It’s not like that. Each one of you feel the same, right? (Yes.) Feel like I love you alone. (Yes.) At least very much and… (Yes, very much. Just only.) Only! Individually. And at least enough. (Yes.) Because in the family, sometimes parents have like two or three kids, and sometimes one feels like the parents love the other kid more than him or herself. Is that true? (Yes.) So how come you, so many multi-thousands think that I love you alone? Isn’t that funny, huh? But that’s how you feel, right, all of you? (Yes.) Anybody feel I don’t love you? (No!) If you feel that way, I’m sorry for you because you’re stupid. No matter how many of you, I love you all the same. Even if sometimes I scold you, I still love you all the same. Just scold your ignorance, not you, okay?

In this program, Excerpts from the Book of Proverbs, chapters 10-14 in the Holy Bible are introduced. Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs. Those who are kind benefit themselves, but the cruel bring ruin on themselves. One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense. Good people obtain favor from the Lord, but he condemns those who devise wicked schemes.

(And the artists, during the rehearsal, Master, they loved it so much and they enjoyed so much that they told us like, “You know, this is not like working for us. It’s like fun every day. I wish my work is like this all the time.”) Because we treat them well. (Yes.) And they feel the love and the good energy. That’s where and what people should work with. But unfortunately in this world, not every place is like that. Mostly just business-like. (And the artists, they really performed out of love, Master, because the fees we offered is very symbolic. Everyone who was there was so surprised that vegan food was so yummy.) If you cook nice, of course. Yeah? (But I think most important is your love. It’s like they all melted.) Oh, really? They must have been very sensitive also. Artists, they are very sensitive. So they feel it. They have to be sensitive in order to express whatever they want to express in their performance. Have to be real. So their souls are very sensitive. That’s why they can feel the love. Not everybody can. But they are good. They’re good people. (I think the whole show went through so smoothly. So many angels that escorted every single one there. It’s just amazing, Master.) To protect also, to help them. Otherwise, the negative power would attack them so much that they probably couldn’t do it. Or they give up or they don’t want to, or they change at the end, or… It’s very difficult to do the work of God. Sometimes if you think of other people, the negative people, then the connection is there. But of course, in life, you cannot always avoid to think of somebody. Because you don’t even know they are negative. And you think of that person, and if that person is negative, I mean not very good or low level, then the negative power can use that person in your thought to trouble you. That’s how it works. It’s very terrible to be able to survive in this world, on the physical level. It’s not that easy. Even practitioners sometimes get swayed and swing because of the negative power, because of the people you think of, or the people you contact, or the people you sit next to, or the people in your family even. Through them, the maya (negative force) can make trouble. The negative power can make trouble, even if you think of. But it depends. If you do some important work, then they are more after you. So if you are just an ordinary person and you think of somebody, then you just share some bad karma (retribution), but not as bad. It’s already very protected there, you see. (Yes.) Or else it couldn’t have happened so good in such a short time. (Thank you, Master.) But they were so happy, huh? Because they didn’t come for money. They could have it anywhere else. Because just they love us. They think we are good. They think we are doing good for the world so they want to participate in this goodness. Because their heart is so good. That’s why. That’s why. That’s why we had to write everybody a letter and thank them. Remember? (Yes.) If you ever see any of them again, tell them I give them my best regards, my love, and I appreciate what they did for the world.

The next program is a Hebrew song by an Israeli initiate. “We Brought Peace Upon You.”The next program is Tai chi fan and guzheng brought by initiates of Formosa (Taiwan). The music is “The Moon Represents My Heart.” “OK everybody, clap, clap. Wow, looks like a real movie theater. Yeah. Beautiful.” Next our fellow sister from Âu Lạc (Vietnam) will bring us two songs. The first one is “O Cuội,” depicting playful children who long to visit the moon, and pray to God for a lift. The second song is “Countryside Mother,” portraying a mother working very hard in the countryside year after year to raise her young children. “(Dear Master! On behalf of the Aulacese (Vietnamese) initiates, I would like to say a few words of gratefulness to Master. Though the ocean is vast and deep Walking for a few days, I’d see the bottom But the Master’s heart, the farther I walk, the bigger it is Love has no border and no end Mother’s love and sacrifice is immeasurable Mother’s tears and sweats fill the sea Because of the children, mother toils tirelessly No words can ever express her favor I would like to thank you, Master!)” “Anybody who wants to come up, can come. The children maybe? The dancing children, come up. Was beautiful! Every time we watch programs, we don’t want it to end. It’s a pocket program, but it’s beautiful. Moon Festival is for the children, so they should come up and cut (vegan) cake with us.” “Now, Happy Moon Festival! And happy going home, happy staying here, it’s your home. I know it’s not a palace or anything, but we’re happy here. You have the sky as the roof, the ground as your pavement. I mean, your floor. And our temple is the biggest in the world, right? Yes. Anyway, at home you have a lot of concrete already, so it doesn’t matter if you stay here, we are in the nature. People who live in nature, they live longer and their heart is purer. And their minds, simpler. They’re happy in any situation. Healthy, happy! OK? That’s what this ashram offers you. Fresh air. Greenery. What more you want? Even if it rains, you just wear a raincoat or you hide in your tent. Even if we have more people, I will just plant more trees and expanding more land. OK? You’re good? Happy here? Yeah. Yes. (Yes.) I know it’s not a building or anything, but why do we need building? There’re so many buildings everywhere already and sometimes they don’t hold. Yeah? Right. They don’t promise security and safety. So this is good. For a change even, yeah? A change is as good as a rest. So at home you have concrete, you have big building, you have beautiful room, whatever. That’s good. And here you have a different taste of freedom. I like it better this way. Don’t you? (Yes.) If it’s not raining, yes. But anyway, just a different thing, different setting. So you can change your different thinking, different mindset. Purify yourself without concrete, without cement. Yeah, don’t complain. Enjoy it. You don’t always have an ashram like this everywhere. Mostly they build big buildings, of course; I can’t afford it, sorry. The truth is like that. I can’t afford it. I can afford to give the victims hundreds of thousands US dollars or many hundreds thousands US dollars or tens of thousands US dollars, but I can’t afford a house for you. Never mind. Are you happy, I hope? (Yes!) Yeah. It’s beautiful, no? Beautiful place, no? I think. I’m very proud of this no-walls building. And it’s all yours. You see, it’s all yours. No mortgage, nothing. It’s free. OK, ciao and Happy Moon Festival.”

Varying the way we look is often an easy way to bring about a quick, fun shift in our lives. On today’s show, we explore the options to create homemade hair dyes using plant-based ingredients.Manufactured hair dyes vary considerably in their chemical make-up. Permanent hair dyes are prone to cause allergic reactions. Semi-permanent hair dyes contain no ammonia or hydrogen peroxide; therefore they do not penetrate the cortex of the hair shaft. Natural Semi-Permanent hair dyes are often a combination of henna and herbal dyes. Temporary hair dyes come in fun, bright shades like purple, blue, yellow, red, green, etc. However, temporary hair coloring products may contain skin-irritating chemical compounds and their molecules are large enough to sit on the outside of the hair shaft and will wash out with one shampoo.Making hair dyes out of herbs, fruits, vegetables or herbal teas are popular ways to color one’s hair naturally. Of all herbal hair dye ingredients, henna has been a long-standing favorite. Most natural dyes are considered semi-permanent. Tea-based ones will last a few weeks, while henna-based dyes last for months.Debra Maslowski, a staff writer for DIYNatural.com, has a method to create natural hair dyes at home that appears easy enough for anyone interested in DIY coloring to perform. What homemade plant-based hair dyes are best at is bringing out our natural color, not necessarily changing the color greatly. A word of caution is probably helpful here: please purchase henna products that are not animal-tested and contain 100% animal-free, natural ingredients.On today’s program, we have shared the compelling benefits of making effective natural hair dyes at home. By creating our own hair coloring, we reduce the high costs of regularly purchasing commercial hair dyes and the money saved can be used for other needs! Furthermore, with the DIY method, we can improve the quality of our hair in terms of volume, shine, and suppleness. And we gain all these advantages while avoiding contact with harsh chemicals!

“Not all the time, rarely, of course. Thanks for that. I don’t really want to scold. But sometimes, for example, I say it sweetly, they don’t do it. And I have to say, ‘Do it now!’ Then they run. It’s funny. It’s funny. When you keep telling them sweetly, they don’t do it. Then you have to take action to tell them that you are serious, and it’s time to take action, the right action. Because sometimes, if you’re working for the public, then you have to be more disciplined. If you just sit there or come here for retreat, then you do what you want. But just don’t talk a lot, of course concentrate, yeah? But if you are working, you have to be like a team. Move together like a team. Stop like a team, so that things will go smoothly and not waste a lot of time and no conflicting in between. That’s all. And sometimes they don’t listen, then I have to really take action. ‘Now!’ ‘I mean it!’ ‘Look!’ Because nobody’s scared of me, that’s why I have to look scary a little bit sometimes.” “So, even I myself have problems with myself. How would you not have problems with the other person? Stranger, you know? Complete stranger came in your life, and then just said one word, ‘Love!’ and then that’s it. Everything started. Trouble, trouble. Sometimes happy, sometimes suffering. Just because of that word, one word only. Don’t ever listen to that word, okay? Except here. When we say, ‘We love each other,’ we really mean it. The others, outside, it’s sometimes just one of those words. That word is supposed to make us happy and make things rosy and complete, but not always. And if you have to stick with that word all your life, then you have to have a lot of patience, perseverance, and truly like to hold on.” “I don’t want to offend anyone, but sometimes if you meditate on a lower chakra, or if not enough power to protect, or not aiming to go to the top, then the lower guardians or lower gods and goddesses want to keep you there. But you will go through. Promise. If you have a little headache, then you don’t do it. You stand up, do some exercises, some yoga, drink a glass of cold water. And then put on the tape, chanting tape, listen. Just relax. Just listen to chanting tape and don’t think about anything, and then slowly you will go into samadhi (deep meditative state) again. And then you will break through. You have to always be grateful to your past guru. Your master has taught you everything that he can and gave you all the power that he has. And you tell the gods and goddesses that, where they keep you, say, ‘Please, I really want to know Almighty God. I thank you for all your love and your company, but I really want to go up.’ Okay? All right. And then they will let you. Recite the Five Names. Tell them, ‘Please, let me go.’”

“It’s your faith and your perseverance also, and your sincerity that makes it attract, muster this kind of quality power. (Thank you.) If we are positive, we attract positive power. If we are virtuous, morally correct, we attract this kind of people and attract blessing. But sometimes, we do a lot of good things nowadays because we know it’s a good thing to do, but we still have difficulties. It’s because our present karma (retribution) doesn’t allow us to have this. Because we have chosen to have this kind of situation. For some reason. Maybe to clean ourselves or to elevate our spiritual standard, or to help other people, to share the karma (retribution). It’s just like, for example, Jesus or Prophet Muhammad or Buddha, they did nothing wrong ever, but they always had trouble. So it’s not always black and white. But averagely speaking, if you’re a spiritual practitioner with the Quan Yin Method, and you really stick to your moral standard and you diligently practice, then everything will go well. But sometimes, also, you have to share the karma (retribution) with the country where you live and the people you are with. All kinds of things that influence our spiritual practice. But if your faith is strong, always you win at the end. At the end, there is always something for you to laugh, to smile at.”“I’ve told you that you don’t have to change anything, except change your heart. And change your direction. The idols can’t give us too much. We have to be the one. (Yes, Master.) Thank you very much, Master. But all this time, probably they have helped you, mentally. In times of trouble, you turned to them. Even though they didn’t answer you or anything, but you felt like you had something. So thank them. And maybe give it to someone who still needs them. (Yes, Master.) Or give it to the temple, Hindu temple. (Yes.) Some people still need them. Okay? (Yes, Master. Thank you very much.)(Master, before knowing you, I didn’t have the desire to even live. But thanks to you, I’m alive and I have the desir e to continue.) Continue, please! Forever! Life is worth living. Okay? Unless you’ve done your job here. Then God wants you to go, then you go. Don’t try to take it before. Don’t try to run away from your responsibility. A lot of people still need you. Even if you don’t want to live because you don’t care about whether or not to live or die, but some others can need you. See? You can spread the dharma (true teaching), can tell people to be good, to be vegetarian (vegan), to remind people to remember God. See? (Thank you very much, Master.) We have a lot of good use for this body yet, so we can’t just cut it. Okay? Don’t ever do that again!”

He told us that all beings, including animals and plants are spiritual entities, and deserve our love and respect. The Earth is a living, breathing organism, also has a spiritual side and physical side, just like human beings. The Earth is raising her temperature. What does the human body do when it gets some kind of sickness? It raised its fever. There were “3Rs” laws that were established in the beginning of Creation: respect, reciprocity, and relationship.
