But I do not agree that there is nothing good in the society, or there is much more negative than positive. But most probably we are more attracted to something that is very “upheaval” or very tragic, very drastic, so the newspapers would like to report these things to us. This is all right, but then in the long term, it will affect our attitude and our spirit and our outlook on life. Because the brain-computer continues to pick up information, regardless if good or bad, and there's much more bad information than good, therefore, our spirit is very tired, very degraded, very discouraged, very frustrated, very weak. That's why sometimes, if somebody, some person, is truly good, truly pure, comes to us and wants to help us, we sometimes have doubt and suspicion.

So, it’s a shame on the side of Russia, as well as the West, especially those who prevented Ukraine from joining NATO, and those who inked the treaty, the memorandum to protect Ukraine, in case of any attack. It’s really a shame, they make a very bad example, they sent a very bad signal to the whole world. So, I blame all these countries who betrayed Ukraine. They betrayed Ukraine. They did. And maybe they’re waking up now. They see all the atrocities, and also all the pressure from everywhere, from the media, from their own party members, from maybe Supreme Master TV. All these people, if they’re helping Ukraine in any way, they’re paying their debt to Ukraine. And can never pay enough. They can never repay all the innocent women, children, elderly and innocent men who died in such a horrible way. …It’s not just lives lost. It’s the living people who are traumatized and become psychologically disturbed. Well, maybe they are trying to make it up now. It’s good. It’s better than never. But they should have done that before, they should have done that before the war even began, to stop the war, to prevent the war; instead of being scared of Putin, or scared of losing gas and oil, and all that stuff. They should know that Putin also is afraid of not being able to sell gas and oil to them. Because he made a lot of money with it…

On Monday, May 23, 2022, while in Her intensive meditation retreat for the world, our Most Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai kindly called Supreme Master Television team members to check on their wellness. During the conference, Master also provided Her thoughts on questions and some news related to world events, prepared by the team. But the thing is, weapons alone are not enough. They need expertise. They need also more manpower, because Ukrainians have like 40 million people. There are not enough men. Even if all the people came out, the young and the old, all came out to fight, but they are not professional. That’s just to show their unity, their freedom-loving spirit, sacrifice and courage. …all these so-called leaders. Because, if you say you protect democracy and freedom, then you should help people when they’re doing that. Because NATO doesn’t even want to accept Ukraine. And then doesn’t help. What kind of people are that? And most of the NATO countries, at least many of them, are guarantors of Ukraine’s freedom and peace, in the Budapest Memorandum. So, they are not doing anything to keep their promise. Not to talk about protecting a neighbor in time of need.I’m telling you some good news. Like, remember before, I said Russia has to pay all the costs? (Yes, Master.) And then now, suddenly everybody wants the payment, like Syria asks America to pay for victims of the war. And Haiti also stood up now for payment from France. But Haiti should have done that long ago, actually…(So, with the COVID spreading like it is now, it just continues. Should we have an open policy? Like a lot of the restrictions are being lifted. Should this continue?) …You can have this open policy, but must take precautions. Must wear a mask, must wear a face shield, must wear more protective clothing. Not open clothing so that they can go anywhere. But more zipped-up. More tightly protective, less open parts of the body, then it would be much better. Then they can open. […] Have to track down who is sick, and really make them take medicine, stay home or treated accordingly. Cannot just let them run all over and infect the whole country.As I know it, vaccines have not been good to people, even though it seems so. But this is the thing I knew inside. …so the cure is just being a true human, being benevolent, just no more killing animal-people to eat, or to use as fur or leather, or in the laboratory, or cosmetics, anything at all. Not even in the car seat or the lounge sofa. Because you will get sickness and trouble out of any use of animal-people products. So, I think the best are these two solutions that we have to adopt, which are to encourage more agriculture, farming for food; vegetable farming, grain farming – to cure the hunger crisis, not animal-people farming.To hear more insights by Supreme Master Ching Hai on COVID-19, the threat of world hunger, as well as more about the evolution of beings on the planet Diw, please tune in to Between Master and Disciples at a later date, for the full broadcast of this conference.

In the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association News from Korea… “A peaceful vegan world, the world our Master dreams of.” With the recent launch of the Korean edition of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s book “Love Is the Only Solution,” our Association members in Korea printed and distributed 33,000 copies to pedestrians free-of-charge, as well as placing them in Loving Hut vegan restaurants and mailing them to public organizations. Our Association’s Korean centers also celebrated the book launch via Zoom link, with others able to tune in through a live stream on YouTube. Following a prayer for Ukraine and thoughts from the centers’ representatives, messages were heard from several respected non-member individuals who shared their positive feedback after reading Master’s book. “As She (Supreme Master Ching Hai) mentioned in the book, the coronavirus, which has caused a global pandemic crisis this time, is a disease that comes from animals because we humans eat meat. If we humans hadn’t eaten meat in the first place, we really wouldn’t have had to experience such a global disaster.” “I think it’s quite meaningful to propose to tackle the problem by enacting Vegan Law.” “In the book, there are decisive sentences like, ‘Love the animals, we’ll be veg (vegan). Love the Earth, we’ll go green. Love the world, save the planet.’ I believe such sentences are very important expressions that make us naturally understand why we’re in a state where we have no choice but to save the planet through love.” “To think of animals as food is so terrible. I think Master, through Her deep meditation, enlightenment and awakening, probably feels such pain and sorrow more deeply than anyone else. I really agree with Her words, and the people who have awakened their consciousness in some way should take the lead.” “I hope this book will be read by many people and be of great help to humanity in overcoming this environmental problem and the crisis of the pandemic.” “There is such a thing as the butterfly effect, and I had a feeling that the book might bring about that effect.” “Following Master who illuminates the world, let’s create a vegan world. The whole world, the whole universe is celebrating: Love Is the Only Solution.” With appreciation to our Korean Association members, we too rejoice in Master’s uplifting and vital message of vegan love as the foremost solution to today’s crises. Our gratitude, Most Beloved Master, for teaching us the way to lasting World Peace. May Divine Light awaken the true loving nature within all of humankind.

Supreme Master Ching Hai’s book “Love Is the Only Solution” is free for download at: love4peace.orgResearch shows substantial increases in blood clot risk for COVID-19 patients. A study from Sweden concluded that in the first 30 days after contracting SARS-CoV-2, the risk of pulmonary embolism, a life-threatening blood clot in the lungs, is elevated by approximately 33-fold. The data collected from over one million Swedish patient records also showed that the chances of deep vein thrombosis, a blood clot that usually occurs in the legs, increases by nearly five-fold. Furthermore, the heightened risk for pulmonary embolism remains for six months after the infection, while that of deep vein thrombosis continues for three months. Not only individuals who suffered severe COVID-19 symptoms and those with underlying medical conditions were more vulnerable to such blood clots, but patients with mild symptoms face a higher possibility of getting them as well. Many thanks for the concerning study, Swedish and collaborating scientists. To avoid the adverse health impacts of zoonotic outbreaks, may humanity swiftly embrace the wholesome vegan lifestyle, in God’s Omniscience. Go ahead n make war: n more n more people will pray 2 God 2 send u 2 eternal hell. Up next, NASA creates new alloy to advance rocket engine technology. We’ll pause for a moment to thank the elevator maintenance crews, for keeping the lifts running smoothly through regular oiling, adjusting and replacing of parts. We’ll be right back, with more cooling news on Supreme Master Television. Hi, selfless friends, it’s me, Gina, a vegan gal from the Gelada kingdom! In honor of the wondrous creation, I keep my heart pure and true by following the path of compassion. Like this, my days beam with contentment. I have a cooking tip on how to make vegan corn fritters. This delectable appetizer will have your guests craving for more! Start out by combining one-fourth cup (40 grams) cornmeal, one-half cup (80 grams) all-purpose flour, one tablespoon (15 grams) sugar, half a teaspoon (2 grams) of baking powder, three-fourths teaspoon (4 grams) salt, and fresh cracked pepper in a large mixing bowl. Then, add in a half-cup (120 milliliters) soymilk and whisk it all together until the mixture is smooth. Next, stir in one cup (160 grams) corn and two thinly sliced green onions, and a half-cup (60 grams) diced red bell pepper. Drop a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a frying pan and wait until it gets hot. Then add a spoonful of the mixture to the pan and fry for approximately two minutes on each side until it turns golden and crispy. This sweetcorn fritter dish goes well with salsa or a simple salad. Bon appétit! Thank you for tuning in, and much love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all of us humans and all co-inhabitants alike. Now, the weather around the world! National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) invents extremely strong alloy. The United States space agency recently created a new alloy for rocket engines that is twice as strong, three-and-a-half times more flexible, and 1,000 times more durable under stress than currently used materials. Able to withstand extremely high temperatures, Alloy GRX-810 will allow “vast performance improvements” and have major implications for the future of space flight. To develop the new alloy, the engineers utilized computational models as well as 3D printing, and achieved in a short time what would ordinarily take years. Way to go, NASA, on your new material that will help humans to delve further into the mysteries of the universe. In Celestial glory, may our scientific achievements be matched with an increasingly elevated global consciousness, as we choose a future of peace and nobility. Australian state purchases land and transfers it back to Aboriginals. The Queensland government recently purchased over 131,000 hectares of land that was previously used to raise cow-people for meat, and transferred it to an Aboriginal land trust for protection. The vast area contains tracts of undisturbed ecosystems, which feature warm savanna, heathlands, tropical rainforests, and more. Now to be cared for by the Atambaya and Wuthathi peoples, it is one of the largest land transfers of its kind in Queensland’s history that links up almost one million hectares of protected habitat. Thank you, Queensland government, for your fair return of the majestic land to its original keepers, the Wuthathi and Atambaya peoples. In the love of the Providence, may all nations make extra efforts to conserve our beautiful planet and the gentle beings that reside here. Young Kenyan engineer makes paving bricks from plastic waste. Nzambi Matee from Nairobi, Kenya, founder of the start-up Gjenge Makers, was a winner of the UN Environment Programme’s “Young Champion of the Earth 2020” for her innovation to recycle plastic bottles into building blocks. Ms. Matee developed a prototype to mix plastic pieces with sand at a high temperature and compress it into blocks that are light in weight but stronger than concrete. Up to 15% less expensive than their traditional counterpart, the recycled plastic bricks are being used for driveways, sidewalks and roads in Nairobi. Gjenge Makers has brought employment opportunities to over 100 people and recycled 50 metric tons of plastic in 2021. The company envisions doubling the amount of recycled plastic this year, with some blocks to be used in affordable housing construction. Our accolades, Nzambi Matee and Gjenge Makers. May you inspire others to likewise improve waste management for a greener environment, in Heaven’s guidance. Vegan: sounds like Heaven! Coming up, vegan powerlifter sets women’s records in United Kingdom. We’ll just step outside for a moment to appreciate the beautiful clouds that adorn the sky. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for more exemplary news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Remarkable News for an Exceptional World. Vegan powerlifter in United Kingdom sets national female records. Sophia Ellis recently set six national records at the British Women’s Classic Championships. Her efforts included deadlifting a massive 237.5 kilograms, which is also an unofficial record for Europe. Ms. Ellis has been vegan for ten years, and attributes a large part of her success of holding over 20 national and international records to the power of quick recovery on a plant-based diet. In June this year, she will compete in the World Championships, where she hopes to take a title following her Bronze medal achievements in the 2021 event. Congratulations, Sophia Ellis, and we wish you good fortune in the coming competitions. In God’s illuminating Wisdom, may more athletes of our world switch to the vegan diet as they also demonstrate the strength of true compassion. Brave Canadian veterinarian travels to Ukraine to help animal-people. Having volunteered in many underserved countries over the past five years, Dr. Cliff Redford and his 20-year-old daughter Emily recently traveled to Poland, and then crossed into Ukraine to help at an animal-people shelter in Lviv. Tenants there had either been entrusted by their caregivers who had to quickly escape, or were found living on the streets after the invasion. The kindhearted veterinarian had brought over 220 kilograms of much needed supplies to the shelter that is housing 300 dog-people and others such as a goat kid named Mya, whose caregiver promised to come back for her. Dr. Redford so far has treated injuries, sometimes as a result of Russian attacks, and also provided additional training to the shelter’s staff. He said of his patients, “They’re displaced, they’re hurt, they’re scared, just like the people.” Dr. Redford is a Shining World Compassion Award recipient and previously received a US$15,000 humble contribution from Supreme Master Ching Hai to support his charitable endeavors. Kudos, Dr. Cliff Redford and Emily, for your loving work. We pray for peace to quickly return to Ukraine, bringing safety for all beings, in Divine protection. As we are reporting this news, Supreme Master Ching Hai is arranging to send another US$15,000 to Dr. Cliff Redford “to humbly support your noble deed, which helps the most in need, voiceless victims. May all go well with you and the loving animal-people you risk your life for! Godlove.” It’s now time to sit back, laugh and enjoy the joke of the day, entitled, “Finish What You Start.” Naomi called on her friend Susan to see how things are going after her therapy session: “Hey girl! What are you up to today? How was your meeting with the therapist?” “Oh, wonderful. Feeling great. The therapist told me that the way to achieve inner peace is to finish what I started. So far today, I have finished two bags of vegan chips and a vegan chocolate cake. I feel better already!” ?! And now we have a heartline from Sanne in the Netherlands: Dear Master, During my January 1, 2022 meditation, I saw a very wide avenue on the left and a narrow path on the right. First, I saw dozens of people hurrying on the avenue. On the path, a handful of people were walking leisurely. All the people on the avenue and the path were in black and had no arms. Soon the avenue was chock-full of people and it looked pitch black. On the narrow path, only eight to ten people were still walking calmly, watching the mass of people rushing by. When I was wondering where the crowd on the avenue was going, I saw them being sucked into a black whirlpool. Only the eight to ten people on the path were saved. Dear Master, I’m so grateful that You are with us in this scary spiritual screening time I read about in the 1980s. I read that those who didn’t prepare themselves spiritually would be in great trouble. Those who did would go through this time without many problems. I also read that this time was necessary before the planet’s shift to a higher dimension. I’ve been putting the SupremeMasterTV.com link below people’s posts on the social media sites. I hope many others will join me to help people find Master’s information and Wisdom and make the U-turn. Dear Master, I am aware of the terrible pain in Your heart because of the war in Ukraine and Your hard work to help the living and the dead. May all the killing end soon! Love from Your grateful disciple, Sanne from the Netherlands Concerned Sanne, The following note is from Master to you: “Diligent Sanne, I thank you with much Love for your efforts on social media to ensure that more Truth-seekers find the pathway to their true Home. In such bleak times, we must work even harder. May you and the ingenious people of the Netherlands be blessed by God with peace and wellbeing.” Turn vegan: n let ur children know that their father is a hero who rescues countless innocent beings. We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal-people clips. Please send them via SupremeMasterTV.com/heartlineIt’s been a pleasure to have your company on Noteworthy News. May you be graced with a plentitude of loving gifts from Heaven.

In the whole universe, everything must be in balance if it is to survive, if it is to prosper in the highest sense, in the highest level. So, in order to live our life in this world and understand Heaven at the same time, we should try to balance our life so that the spiritual part of our Self will be blossoming, and also the worldly part of us will be more developed.Good afternoon. I am very happy to meet you today, the supposed-to-be one of the most intelligent races of people in Asia or in the world. Is the translation OK? Yes. If the translation is OK, you’re supposed to smile, but I didn’t see anybody smile.So long. You translate from English better or from Chinese? (Would it be easier in Chinese… She is asking the translator: Would it be better in English? Would it be better for you to translate from English to Japanese? Of course, English please.) Your English is better? (Yes.) OK, then it’s fine. (Thank You.) Some people told me that they have a test the Japanese IQ is very high. Is that true? No? If what I speak today you understand immediately, then that means your IQ is very high, because what I speak is not concerning mundane business or economic affair or political business, but it's concerning the matter of the world beyond our intellect. If we want to be successful in this world, it doesn't matter in which aspect, we need IQ, and also, we need training, and also, we need ambition. Now, if we want to understand something about the world beyond this world, we need all these things plus something more. And that something more we already have within ourselves: that is our wisdom. If we do not try to remember our wisdom, try to develop it, try to recognize it, then our life is a little bit empty, feeling kind of not fulfilled, not completely balanced. Is this so long? I spoke only three sentences. It looks like 30 sentences. I thought that Japanese people spoke very little. Because most of the time you work, you don’t have time to speak. So, let’s go back to our theme. Now, if we look around in this world, we see everything is created in a kind of balanced manner. Therefore, there is day, and there is night; there are women, there are men, etc. Also, when we work very hard every day, we need, sometimes, to go out in the nature and relax and do something different than what we do every day. I was making a joke. You’re not offended, huh? I was trying to bring some laughter into the Japanese audience, but I don’t think I succeeded. Do the Japanese people laugh a lot? Yeah, they do, huh? Yeah? They do? Because what I read in the newspaper is that you’re working, working, working and don’t do anything else. Is that true?But I met some Japanese next to my house, where I live. They are very nice, and very, very happy, always smiling, so I don’t think this is very true. Maybe because that family, they’re balanced. When we want to find happiness in our life, we should live a balanced life. Many of us live a life of too much materialism and we have forgotten the real spirit, the real Self, inside us. That's why we have tried very hard but our world has not been very progressive. Maybe we have progressed in some aspect and then we regressed in some aspect. That is because we have forgotten the more important part in our life: that is our spirit, our wisdom.In the whole universe, everything must be in balance if it is to survive, if it is to prosper in the highest sense, in the highest level. In our world we are much more preoccupied with the material aspect. That's why we cannot understand Heaven. In Heaven, people are too much preoccupied with the spiritual aspect, therefore they cannot understand man. So, in order to live our life in this world and understand Heaven at the same time, we should try to balance our life so that the spiritual part of our Self will be blossoming, and also the worldly part of us will be more developed.Therefore, while living in this world we still can understand and contact with Heaven, because in Heaven there are higher teachings for us that we can make use of in order to help mankind to develop in a more civilized manner, in all aspects. You see, our brain is just like a computer, a first class-computer, and according to what information we give to the brain, it will come out. So now, what we pick up in this world are not always the best information and not always the highest quality of information. Therefore we have to go to a higher dimension in order to pick up better information, better quality of information, to give it to our brain, and then in turn the brain will give it out to the society or to our daily life activity.

Situated above the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, surrounded by Atlantic waters, lies the Republic of Iceland, a Nordic Island country known for its natural beauty. Iceland is actually not a land completely covered with ice. The warm prevailing gulf stream keeps most of the land green and fertile. The country enjoys a cool and temperate maritime climate, with pleasant summers and mild winters.Characterized by repeated volcanic activity and geothermal phenomena, Iceland is a point of fascination for geologists around the world. Formed during eruptions from 1963 to 1967, volcanic island Surtsey, south of Iceland, is home to an exclusive scientific research site as well as a UNESCO natural heritage site. The Vatnajökull National Park - Dynamic Nature of Fire and Ice, which is also a UNESCO natural heritage site since 2019, is home to Europe's second largest glacier as well as 10 volcanoes.The capital city of Reykjavík, one of the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world, is home to an estimated 60 percent of the country’s population, and is an important cultural and economic center. The supreme national parliament of Iceland, called the Alþingi, currently located in the capital, is a symbol of the country’s long-standing tradition of democracy. Despite being the most sparsely populated country in Europe, Iceland is highly ranked in the world by economic and democratic standards, as well as for its social stability and equality.Iceland is one of the most vegan-friendly countries in the world. Not only are there plenty of traditional plant-based options available, but alternative fast food and treats, such as ice cream, can also be easily found. According to news site Iceland Monitor in 2016, Iceland had more vegetarian restaurants per capita listed on HappyCow than any other country in Europe.Compared with other languages, Icelandic has remained relatively unchanged for centuries. The Icelandic sagas are collections of stories of the early settlers and were mostly written between the 12th and 14th centuries. Traditional Icelandic handcrafts include silversmithing, woodcarving, and weaving. The art of silverwork using silver thread to produce ornaments has been preserved for centuries. The traditional Turf House was brought to Iceland by the first settlers. Its design, shape and function are unique to the region, and are well suited to the country’s climate.

“Hi, my name is Ou (Hong) Yi, and I am an eighteen-year-old vegan, minimalist, and climate activist from China. I have been striking every Friday in China over 100 times in the last two years. I am sacrificing my own education because I know there is a climate and ecological emergency in the world, and let’s go green, be vegan and save the planet. It needs all of us. Thank you.” As a young child and teenager, she always had an interest in the environment, but it truly manifested in eighth grade, when she learned about veganism and its benefits to the planet. Then, in January 2018, she had a dream in which she went to a restaurant where customers were presented with a bucket of fish and a knife. When she was about to kill the fish, it turned and looked at her. This vision, in addition to watching the award-winning documentary film “An Inconvenient Truth,” led her to pursue a path of veganism and climate activism in her local community. Ou Hongyi became the first young person in China to engage in the Greta Thunberg-inspired “Fridays for Future” climate strikes. Her first strike was held in May 2019, in front of a local government office in her hometown and lasted seven days. She continued this activism for the next two years and then quit school to focus on activism full time. This led to much public scrutiny and criticism, but she remained courageous and resilient in her activism to raise awareness about the climate emergency. Upon learning about Ou Hongyi, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Lovingly present Ou Hongyi the Shining World Heroine Award for your courageous spirit, plus US$10,000 as a helping hand to further your determined efforts to raise climate awareness, with high regard, gratitude and successful wishes, in Buddha’s Greatness.”

Just that we all wish that the world had such friendship. (Right, yes.) Between neighbors, or between acquaintances, between family members at least. (Yes.) And on a larger scale, between countries. (Right, Master. That’s right.) Neighboring countries at least. (Yes, Master.) Oh, man. We are all adults, and do we need to learn this kind of children’s story? Alright then. Any questions, any comments on this story? How do you feel, or what does it make you feel? I know you want to have a friend like that. (Yes.) That’s for sure. (For sure. Yes.) But you have one, no? (Yes, Master. Yes, we do. We have You, Master.) I’m not your friend? I’m just a Master? (You are our everything. Yes.) Wow, sweet talk. Good, good. (That’s true, Master.) I would die for you, but I wonder if anybody would die for me. (Oh, we would for sure.) Yeah? (Yes.) OK. I believe you. But let’s hope that we don’t have to go to that situation, we don’t need to. I just have to take care of myself so you don’t have to do that. That’s why I cannot just do too many things. I cannot even appear. (Yes.) OK, any questions, any comments, any feelings? Or do you just keep it all to yourselves? No sharing? Hallo? Are you there? (We’re thinking.) It’s a touching story. (Yes, Master.) There’s not much to explain really. (Yes.) Just that we all wish that the world had such friendship. (Right, yes.) Between neighbors, or between acquaintances, between family members at least. (Yes.) And on a larger scale, between countries. (Right, Master. That’s right.) Neighboring countries at least. (Yes, Master.) Oh, man. We are all adults, and do we need to learn this kind of children’s story? Still don’t wake up.My God, in every country, there are beautiful stories to read and to tell. (Yes, Master.) Every country has beautiful stories similar to this, I’m sure.(Seems like the king learned something from their friendship, and maybe he would pass it forward and make friends with other nations. Make peace.) Yeah. So even anybody who comes to his country, he would welcome and not put them in prison or chop head. (Yes.) Wow, my God. So scary, in the old times, they just chop your head like that without asking you anything, without any proof, without any court case. (That’s right. Yes.) This is the problem, you know? I feel the most sorrowful thing is that this world could have been a paradise. It’s truly like that. Because we have an abundance of everything; ample food, and natural resources. (Yes.) It’s just we developed in the wrong way. You know, the one who invented dynamite, is Nobel, right? (Nobel Prize?) No, his name is Nobel, that’s why they name it after him, because he left his fortune from what he earned from that, for peace. That’s from his fortune. If I remember well, you know? Made it like a trust fund. And so they use this money that he happened to amass because of what he discovered, invented, dynamite. (Yes, Master.) So, that’s why we have the Nobel Peace Prize. That’s what I thought I remember. He left his fortune behind and the will that it would be used for peace and to award anyone who contributed to the good of the world, and for peace. (Yes.) People used dynamite for the wrong purpose. (Yes.) Maybe that’s why he felt so bad. (Right.) He felt guilty. (Yes.) So whatever he earned from that, he left behind for peace reward, for whoever contributes to the world, not destroy the world. (Yes.) That was good. Good idea. OK then, if you have no more to share, anybody? (The story reminds us of the friendship between King Arthur and Merlin.) Oh, yes, also. Yes, yes. Also, yes. So, they’re both very good for each other, with each other. And even the Prince also sacrificed a few times for Merlin, and Merlin did the same. Both of them. It’s true. I forgot about that. I don’t know how Putin can still continue the war if he saw such devastation. Maybe it’s just communists, they believe the end justifies the means. (Yes.) "Media Report from ITV News Apr. 6, 2022 Dan Rivers (m): The town of Borodianka has been hollowed out by Russian missiles and artillery. Helena Skoropad is telling me about trying to save her son Artem. She scooped him into her arms after he was hit by shrapnel, describing the injuries in graphic detail. Artem was just 12 years old, a keen basketball player. His mother and stepfather Sasha had tried to flee, but they say a cluster munition exploded, peppering them with shrapnel." But that’s not like that. You cannot end badly and win gloriously. (Yes.) You cannot use a bad way to win. Not at human cost.I saw a man with bare hands, he pushed a tank. He stood in front of the tank and tried to push it backwards or stop it. (Yes. That’s right.) And then, he kneeled down to beg them not to advance further. (That’s right. Yes.) How can anybody not be touched by that? How can Mr. Putin and his men, not be touched by that? (Right.) Communists or not, we are humans. (Yes, Master.) And when I saw the MP pick up the rifle, leaving her children and saying, “I have to go to protect your future. Mummy has to protect your future.” Oh, I cried so much. Because I know what it feels like, leaving your children and going into the unknown, knowing that you might die any minute. (Yes. Yes, Master.) There must be something. They treasure freedom so much. They treasure democracy so much that they regard their precious lives just like a feather. (Yes.) It’s truly, truly admirable. Truly awesome. I feel so touched. (Yes, Master.) That doesn’t mean I’m for war. I’m touched by their spirit. (Right. Yes, Master.) So brave. "Media report from CNN – Apr. 29, 2022 Nick Paton Walsh: Resilience here, embodied in Ludmilla, under the threat of rocket fire, planting onions. 'I’m here until victory,' she said." "Media report from CNBC – May 13, 2022 Jay Gray: Many of these businesses say they’ll continue to do everything they can for as long as necessary to help those fighting on the front line. This T-shirt company says proceeds from every item sold go to the Ukraine air force. While in this warehouse across town, a small group of artisans has stitched together a bond between their work and the warriors, defending their freedom." Media report from Fox News – Apr. 16, 2022 Ana Sazonov: The Ukrainian people are fighting not only for themselves, but they’re fighting for the values that we all appreciate. The values of freedom (and) democracy." "Media report from CNBC – May 13, 2022 Man: Every Ukrainian would give his shirt to support the cause." If all the Ukrainians are so united like that, then the Russian president and his people should know that the government of Ukraine is good. (Yes.) They have the support of all the people. (Yes, Master.) Then he should feel awed, respectful and let the Ukrainian people be. (That’s right.) I would. (Yes, Master.) Even if I misunderstood or was misinformed about the badness of Ukraine, or even when I saw all this news, I should know that the Ukrainian government is good. (Yes.) Otherwise, they wouldn’t have such support from their people. (Right. Exactly. It’s true.) The Ukrainian government wouldn’t have all this support if it’s bad. (Yes, Master.) And if somebody really controlled the Ukrainian people, if some fascist, for example, controlled the Ukrainian people, then they would run out to Russia when they have this chance. (Exactly, yes.) They did not! They did not welcome them. They pushed their tanks. They stopped their trucks. They picked up rifles to fight for their country, for their people. (Yes.) That is a “no-no” for Russia. That means, “We don’t want you. We are different.” The language is also different. Of course, they speak Russian also, because they were together before, or nearby. Many people learn different languages. But they don’t like the Russian system, so just let them be. (Yes, true.) (Yes, Master.) How can you be so heartless or shameless, at least, like that? People don’t want you. What for do you continue? Cheating yourself or cheating others to fight, deluding others to fight, duping others to fight. And tell false stories, so that the people go to fight. And they die in tens of thousands already. That should be enough, should be too much already. It cannot be like “misinformed” anymore. Because the Russian people might not be able to reach other communication services or news, but Putin could. (Yes.) He could see any kind of television anywhere he wanted. (Yes.) Or at least other websites or anything. (Yes. Right.) He’s not forbidden. He should know. Right? (Yes, Master.) I saw him, whenever they show him on TV, often he sat in front of the multi-screen television. (Yes. That’s right.) And I’m sure he can handle Twitter or Facebook. Even if I cannot, I’m sure he can. And he also has people around him that can do it for him. (Yes.) It’s not possible that he doesn’t know. He has to know, because he would want to know. (Yes, Master.) It’s not possible that he turned a blind eye to whatever happened on the battlefield, or whatever happened to his orders in Ukraine. (Yes, Master.) Nobody can be that insensitive, or not curious at least. (Right.) He ordered soldiers to go to Ukraine. He must know everything. He will find a way to know. (Yes, Master.) Not possible. So, if he saw so many people die already for nothing, he knows that he lost. They even admitted that they lost big. That’s why they have to recruit now young teenagers and retired soldiers to go back to the field to kill again, or to die. And still don’t stop! So, he must a be crazy man. (Yes.) That’s why people think he’s crazy. This is more than crazy, it’s dangerously evil, or something. (Yes, Master.) Everybody can see that. And now his strategy backfires. The whole world unites against him. (Yes.) Even China. Maybe they don’t condemn him, but they don’t support. (Yes.) Just say something to save face, like, “Oh, let’s check Bucha to see if it’s real.” The satellite image is more than real. (Yes.)And also, the German intelligence, they picked up the conversation of the Russian army talking together. (Yes.) Like, the commander ordered the soldier to kill. And the soldier said, “But these are all civilians.” And he said, “What’s wrong? Just kill them all!” (Yes, Master.) They ordered to kill civilians. Truly like that. "Media report from CNN Apr. 9, 2022 Russian soldier (m): A car drove by, but I’m not sure if it was a car or a military vehicle. But there were two people coming out of the grove dressed as civilians. Russian commander (m): Kill them all, for f*** sake. Russian soldier (m): Got it. But all the village here is civilian. Russian commander (m): What’s wrong with you? If there are civilians, slay them all…" And today the intel reported that it came from the highest place. (Oh.) The highest place is where? You know, right? (Yes.) The Kremlin and Putin. If it’s true like that, he’s really evil incarnate.

The Minister of Family and Social Policy of Poland, Her Excellency Marlena Maląg, announced that the Polish government will plan and coordinate employment procedures to help enable the 2.5 million Ukrainian refugees currently within the nation to work. This comes after the passage of a law in March granting the refugees the right to live and work in Poland for 18 months. Polish firms have already employed 25,000 of the refugees, mainly in the hospitality sector and seasonal jobs, with around 17,000 of them being women. They will also have full access to the country’s health care system, schools and many other social benefits. We applaud your efforts in opening your borders and homes to your neighbor in need, Poland. In God’s Love, may all the displaced Ukrainians soon be able to safely return home. Oyster consumption spreads norovirus in United States and Canada. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States has reported that a common gastroenteritis infection called norovirus has been detected in people across 13 states, due to eating contaminated oysters. Symptoms of the condition include stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, fever and more, that can last for up to three days. The sickness is also highly contagious via cross-contamination and person-to-person transmission, and as of April 8, over 100 people across the country had been infected as well as 279 in Canada. Thank you, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for highlighting the dangers of eating oysters. In Heaven’s wisdom, may humanity soon cease the damaging habit of animal-people consumption to ensure the ongoing survival of our planet, and all beings. Vegan: the best life change. Up next, Europe’s largest bifacial solar farm opens in Greece. We would like to thank the chefs who make delectable vegan soups at restaurants and cafés. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for more auspicious news.Hallo, virtuous viewers, it’s Teemo, a vegan prince from the Tapir kingdom. I devote my days to expanding love and peace towards others. And of course, this means that I’m an earnest follower of the benevolent plant-based way. I have a handy tip for us. Soap nuts, otherwise known as Indian soapberries, have a number of uses. It can serve as a natural laundry detergent, hand and dish soap, body wash, shampoo, pet cleaning wash and mosquito repellent, just to name a few. Here is how to make soap nut liquid concentrate. First, you will need to deseed 4-6 soap nuts and crush them. Then combine them in a pot with 2 cups (470 milliliters) of water. Bring it to a boil, then lower the heat and allow it to simmer for approximately 20-30 minutes. Next, strain the liquid in a bowl and let the soap nuts dry— these can be used again to make more soap liquid. Once the liquid concentrate has cooled, pour it into a bottle. It can be stored in the fridge for up to one week. Now you can use it to make an all-purpose soap nut cleaner! Just combine 1 cup (230 milliliters) of the soap nut liquid concentrate with 2 cups (470 milliliters) of water. Then add in 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) of white vinegar and mix everything together. Transfer the solution to a spray bottle, and you’ll be ready to use it on tables, counters, toilets and more! Love you so much for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet, thus save the world! And thank you for your attention. Here’s the weather around our beautiful globe. Greece accelerates shift from fossil fuels to renewables. A new €130 million solar farm in the northern town of Kozani recently opened, as Greece moves towards powering the nation by the sun and wind. The 204-megawatt project, owned by Hellenic Petroleum, features double-sided (or bifacial) solar panels, the largest project in Europe using such panels. It will provide power to 75,000 households, with plans to possibly incorporate battery storage in the future. In 2020, the nation derived over 21% of its electricity from renewables and hopes to achieve 35% by 2030. The process for issuing green energy permits will soon be expedited to ensure these goals can be reached. What exciting developments, Greece and Hellenic Petroleum, with your dedicated transition to renewable energy. In Divine splendor, may generous Greece prosper, as it embraces green power. Non-governmental organization supports migrant seasonal farm workers in Victoria state, Australia. The not-for-profit group, Know Your Roots Incorporated, is seeking to assist hundreds of Pacific Island laborers, who arrive in Australia to work but are not properly prepared for the cooler months, by organizing collections of warm clothing for them. It also distributes donated furniture to those lacking the essentials in their temporary homes. The islanders face financial challenges within the first few months of farm work, as they must reimburse employers for travel expenses and send earnings back to their families. Know Your Roots Incorporated founder Mellissa Silaga stated, “The least we can do is ensure that they have the basic necessities.” Thank you, Know Your Roots Incorporated, for your compassionate efforts to bring comfort to the hardworking Pacific Islands seasonal workers, whose hard labor helps to provide delicious fruits and vegetables for Australians to enjoy. May you all be forever shielded, in the immeasurable kindness of the Providence. Italian designer helps villagers to harvest drinkable water from the air. During a trip in 2013 to a small village in Ethiopia, architect Arturo Vittori became aware of the seriousness of the water scarcity situation for residents. Mr. Vittori designed the Warka Tower to supply potable water to disadvantaged populations. Named after a fig tree in Ethiopia, the bamboo tower is a 9.5-meter-high vase-shaped structure. The inside is lined with a polyester mesh to attract moisture from the air, which condenses against the mesh and passes to the reservoir below. A canopy shading the bottom prevents water from evaporating. The tower, which produces more than 100 liters of water a day, can be built by hand. Through his charity, Warka Water, the tower and other sustainability projects are also being implemented in other countries with the support of local communities. A standing ovation, Arturo Vittori, for your kind heart and ingenious creation. May innovators like yourself keep finding ways to improve the lives of all precious beings, in God’s Benevolence. Supreme Master Ching Hai “Gratefully present the Shining World Invention Award to Arturo Vittori, plus a humble contribution of US$10,000 towards your caring efforts of providing clean water to the most vulnerable, with lots of love, thanks, and best wishes for continuing success, in Heaven’s Mercy. May all be blessed with an abundance of vital pure water.” Yeah, go ahead n make war: turn other people’s lives upside down 4 hell’s sake cuz u r going 2 hell.

Adorable letters encourage adoption of shelter animal-people in United States. In Richmond, Virginia, second-grade students at St. Michael’s Episcopal School used their creativity to help the adoption of animal-person residents at a local shelter. Kensey Jones, a teacher at the school, got the idea to encourage people to embrace a new family member and enlisted the help of her students. The heartfelt letters, handwritten from an animal-person’s perspective, quickly moved the hearts of visitors. The project was a huge success, with 21 of the 24 hard-to-adopt animal-folk finding new loving homes. Parker Whithoff, one of the participating students said, “It makes me feel amazing because they have been in that shelter for almost all of their life. And it makes me feel just very good that they have forever homes.” Such great news, Kensey Jones and caring students of St. Michael’s Episcopal School. In the goodwill of the Divine, may your marvelous example inspire others to give animal friends a helping hand. Now, it’s time to grab that laughter bottle and pour a healthy portion into our day with the joke we have ready. It’s called, “Cold Face Cream.” Little Johnny is watching his mom rubbing cold cream on her face and he asks her: “Why are you rubbing that stuff on your face, Mother?” “To make myself beautiful, Johnny.” A few minutes later she starts rubbing the cream off with a tissue. “What is the matter, Mom? Are you giving up?” And now we have a heartline from Kidus in Ethiopia: Dear Supreme Master TV team, Words are not enough to thank you for the noble exceptional service you do for the animal-people and humankind. Recently, Master was very upset by the world leaders and mentioned that the world would be a Paradise if leaders are just sane, and how ego affects everything in our world. Immediately that day, the Ethiopian government allowed aid to enter the vulnerable Tigray region, which has faced difficulties for many months, and millions of people got access to food and avoided hunger. Also, a few days later, the rebellious party withdrew its forces from the neighboring Afar region, and things are becoming smooth for peaceful solutions. Master’s speech is very powerful and I pray to Master to continue to influence the leaders in a good way. Thanks. With love, Kidus from Ethiopia Enthusiastic Kidus, We loved reading the positive news of your country’s response to Master’s message. We have seen before that leaders suddenly changed course for the better after Master spoke out. This latest instance you described shows how immeasurably blessed our planet is to have Master here. May you and the upright Ethiopian people soon have lasting peace and forever enjoy Heaven’s favor, Supreme Master TV team “I have also been trained in the carnivorous myth since I was a child […]. Then, through Netflix and YouTube, I was able to learn the truth of the carnivorous myth, and I soon became a vegan.” ~ Sleeq (vegan) We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal-people clips.

(Master possesses the omnipresent almighty power. However, Master is unwilling to reveal Her power. Instead of dwelling on our outer appearance, She always talks about discovering our inner wisdom, compassion and universal love, developing our transcendental power within, and pursuing liberation from the cycle of transmigration.) “(As humans, we tend to believe in someone or something that has been accepted by the public, often without thinking. Conversely, we tend to doubt someone or something that has not been widely recognized. It is like when Lord Jesus was alive, the masses did not believe in Him. Some even slandered and persecuted Him. Yet, two thousand years later, His believers continue to grow. If Jesus Christ were to come again today, how would we recognize Him? I believe that we must first get in touch with the Christ power within. We would then be able to recognize a great Master like Jesus Christ. Secondly, in Japan and China, there are many who follow the practice of reciting the mantra ‘Namo Horen Kekyo,’ or ‘Namo Lotus Sutra.’ But how many of these practitioners have experienced the kind of experiences recorded in the sutra? For example, the sutra states: “The sounds of inner Buddhist chanting and inner ocean waves are superior to the inner Heavenly Sounds of this world.” Those kinds of inner Heavenly Sounds are not of this world, but are beyond this world. At the same time, those inner sounds are also within each of us. They are our wisdom. They are our power of compassion. It is because of that kind of great power that we can liberate ourselves from the cycle of birth and death. Based on my own experience, I can attest that you can hear these kinds of inner Heavenly Sounds 24 hours a day, if you practice with Master. We follow Master to practice spiritually and prove the scriptures with spiritual practice. We follow Master to practice spiritually to prove the scriptures, instead of being a bystander, reading or chanting the scriptures. Thirdly, Master possesses the omnipresent almighty power. This has been unanimously recognized by hundreds of thousands of Master’s disciples all over the world, through their personal experiences. However, Master is unwilling to reveal Her power. Instead of dwelling on our outer appearance, She always talks about discovering our inner wisdom, compassion and universal love, developing our transcendental power within, and pursuing liberation from the cycle of transmigration.I think, only by merging the power of compassion, universal love and the transcendental power mentioned before, One can be called a perfect Being – a Buddha. Next, I am going to tell a short story. A long time ago, on a desolate farm in the mountains, there was a farmer. One day, he found a stone in the field. It was as big as his fist and looked like glass. He’d heard that diamonds are hidden in stones, a diamond ore. He thought there could not be diamonds buried beneath the soil. It would be useless and heavy to bring it home. People might laugh at him if he took it home. So, he just dumped it by the roadside. Next day, a neighbor picked up the stone and took it to the city to be assessed by a jeweler. The jeweler said, ‘It’s just a glass. Throw it away.’ But he refused to give up and consulted another jeweler. The jeweler said, ‘This is a priceless diamond.’ He consulted a third jeweler and got the same answer. He was overjoyed and became a very wealthy man overnight. You can imagine the farmer’s frustration upon hearing the news.After following Master to practice spiritually, I feel that I have found the real value of my life. I am extremely fortunate. Since we have already found it, we wish to introduce our Supreme Master Ching Hai to sentient beings who have an affinity. This is why we invite you to come to attend Master’s lecture today. I hope you won’t follow the example of the farmer by having preconceived ideas. He didn’t understand, nor did he seek advice. So, he just easily gave away a rare gem.I hope you won’t hold on to your preconceived ideas and refuse to seek advice even if you don’t understand, and then throw away a rare gem so easily. You have nothing to lose by exploring and observing more. People who suffer misfortunes and losses are those who stubbornly hold on to their preconceived ideas.Missing the chance to follow a living Buddha to practice spiritually, will make you more regretful than that farmer, for many lifetimes.A wise statement by a scientist goes, ‘What obstructs us from knowing the world is known knowledge, rather than unknown knowledge.’ OK. That’s all I have to say. Thank you.)” (Thank you. Those who would like to present flowers to Master, please go on stage. Next, the disciples will offer flowers to Master. As time is very precious, we would now like to have Master begin Her lecture. Now, please listen to Master’s lecture with a respectful heart.) It’s my turn already? So soon, it’s my turn already? Are you translating English or Chinese? Which one is easier to translate? English or Chinese? (Perhaps English.) English is easier? OK. (Chinese is easier.) (Chinese.) How many Chinese are here? Raise your hands to show me. Oh! A lot. OK. But we have translation for Japanese. Do you all understand Japanese? Yes? That’s wonderful. Japanese understand English better than Chinese? Yes. Yes? (Yes, please.) Yes, they can. You see. Because of so many Chinese here, they have required that I speak Chinese. But I thought the Japanese understand English better, so maybe I speak English. And the Chinese have to listen to English and Japanese. If I am in China, I will speak Chinese.I feel already very sorry that I cannot speak Japanese to the Japanese people, because like this we can have more direct understanding. I have tried, I’ve tried to learn Japanese, I have tried. In America, I bought cassettes and tapes and video and books in Japanese. They’re expensive, and they have promised me I can speak Japanese in three and half weeks. Three and half months already, I couldn't speak anything! So maybe three and half years later, I can. So, you Chinese, please understand.

“Humans and animals We all feel pain. We’re different yes but sentient nonetheless. So morally aren't we the same? So how can we justify Taking somebody’s life, Just because we're smarter, Just because we're stronger, Just because we like the taste, Just because we have the power? How can might ever make things right When there’s no need? We're just addicted to the pleasure And the greed. Cos they're just like us In all the ways that matter.”Currently living in California, USA, vegan singer-songwriter Dayzee Oliver was born as Jason Oliver. For many years, between his different “daytime” jobs as a mechanic, ballroom dance instructor, and dog-people walker, Dayzee has been devoting his time, energy, and talent to encourage ending the suffering of animal-people. Along with his many activism activities such as going to protests, passing out plant-based food, and volunteering at farm sanctuaries, Dayzee has written and performed songs concerning the cause he is so passionate about.On his website, Dayzee declares himself as a “Total Liberationist.” “That comes from just reading about the effects of capitalism, how capitalism, it’s a system where we’re prioritizing profit. And I think when we have a system like that, where we’re focused on profit above human rights, above the effects of pollution, when we’re thinking about that over the concerns of sentient beings then it’s leading to this horrific situation where we’re just polluting our world, causing global climate change.So we want to create a more compassionate system. And I think that’s ultimately what total liberation is about too. It’s about including also the animals, not just human liberation, but also liberation for animals not being commodified and objectified and submitted to this horrific cruelty as well.”“And then let’s see, ‘Speak Out,’ that’s more of a protest song. That one was inspired from just doing protests. The animals don’t want us to be quiet. You know, the animals want us to speak out, the animals want us to stop this horrible suffering.”

Today, we will continue with our presentation on the development of this unprecedented legal case. The High Court hearing took place on January 25, 2022, at the Royal Court of Justice of London. Dr. Alice Brough, a co-claimant of this case, is a vegan former veterinarian who used to work in the British pig-person industry. After four years of visiting animal-people in slaughterhouses, she couldn’t bear to continue watching the endless suffering brought to both animal-people and humans. She quit her job to become an activist. “You add into that the fact that it's so obviously dangerous to human health, it's so obviously dangerous to the environment.”During the hearing, the UK Government Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) showed no evidence of having examined the risks associated with animal-people raising operations and the effective actions needed to protect the public. Yet, the Court accepted DEFRA’s argument that the existing framework for animal-people factories is sufficient and capable of operating under the European Convention on Human Rights protections. In a phone call with Supreme Master Television members, Supreme Master Ching Hai stated that leaders, now more than ever, need to steer society in the right direction. “I’m so anguished for all the innocent people who have been misled, who have no true strong leader to help them in times of trouble, in times of true need. This is the moment when the leaders should step out and say, ‘Look here, for your sake, for our sake, for our world’s sake, for our children’s sake, please, we must change our habit of meat-eating into a vegan way of life.’” “It is extraordinary that today, it was deemed that the evidence that we’ve submitted, 12,000 of it over, was not enough to warrant a hearing for a judicial review. Absolutely unbelievable. But we’re not done yet. We are going to battle on because we do aim, and absolutely aim, to scrap factory farming.” “The Court needed to hear these arguments, needed to hear the witness statements of these really brave, really courageous, really committed claimants who brought this case not just for themselves but in the public interest and for humanity as a whole.”
Veganism: The Noble Way of Living

Your fellow initiates in Ukraine wrote to me saying that many places don’t have water, don’t have any food, nothing. (Oh.) They’re trapped in the war zone, and they can’t get out, they have no means to get out, and they don’t have telephones or anything. Because many places where the Russian soldiers have been, they took away their phones, they took away everything. “At that moment, he yanked the axe from the neck of his friend and put it on his own neck. (Wow!) But the other friend yanked it back from him. (Oh.) And then both of them were yanking back and forth, back and forth, and wrestling with each other, determined to take the axe away for themselves.” (Wow.) Both of them, demanded that it is for him to die. And then, from the window of the palace the king saw such a thing, so strange. He was shocked and surprised facing such an incredible friendship like that. (Yes.) It is above and beyond anything that he had ever seen in his life, up to now. Not only the king, but all his court officials were all very, very, very surprised, very shocked. So the king ordered the axe to be taken away. And then he released both of them. (Wow!) Well, he should, my God! They did nothing wrong. (Yes.) He is just presumed to be a spy but he’s not, right? (Right.) So after that, the king gifted them with many, many beautiful presents and valuable gifts. And then, he also announced thus: “I have never seen such a love like this, between two friends. And I wish that I myself become a friend of both of you.” (Wow!) You understood? (Yes, Master.) It’s not too vexing to listen to my choppy speech? (No, no, Master.) So the king wanted to become friends with these two friends, with both of them. (Wow.) Facing this kind of request from the king, the two friends had no choice but have to happily accept! Had to happily accept it. Right. End of the story. (Very good story.) (Yes! Thank You, Master!) Wonderful, wonderful! (Yes. Good story, yes.) There is another similar story in “One Thousand and One Nights” also. (Oh.) Isn’t that nice to have such a selfless and noble friendship; (Yes, Master! It is.) that you could find such a friend in your life? (Yes.) In the whole world that you have such a friend? (Yes.) My God. I said it to you already, not even family members are always willing and ready to die for the other family members. (Yes, that’s right. Yes, Master.) This I wish the Ukrainian and the Russian people develop this kind of friendship. (Right.) I wish that they could develop this friendship – dying for each other, not making others die. (Yes, Master.) If you have to die, die for the other, not to make others die and suffer. I hope the Russians hear me. I hope Putin hears me. It pains me so much, that I don’t even know day from night. (Oh.) I can’t even eat well, it tastes like nothing, the food, at the moment. (Oh.) The other day I told you I was disappointed because the food didn’t taste good. I thought it was only that day, because I was disillusioned watching the yummy and mouth-watering cooking show. And then I went and made a sandwich and it tasted like nothing. I thought because it’s not the same food, not the same food as on Supreme Master TV. (Yes. Right.) But it continued this way. Before that and after that. I have food, I just don’t even look at it, don’t feel good. My God, I think too much of the people who die suddenly. OK, the innocent, the pure ones, we can take care of their souls; but those who die too fast and they did not have time to prepare, to clean themselves; they have trouble. They are wandering around or floating on top of hell, or don’t even know what’s happening to them. (Oh.) And that is the dead, and the living also do not fair better. Your fellow initiates in Ukraine wrote to me saying that many places don’t have water, don’t have any food, nothing. (Oh.) “Media Report from The Telegraph – Mar. 9, 2022 Ludmila Amelkina (f): We don’t have electricity, we don’t have anything to eat, we don’t have medicine, we’ve got nothing.”They’re trapped in the war zone, and they can’t get out, they have no means to get out, and they don’t have telephones or anything. Because many places where the Russian soldiers have been, they took away their phones, they took away everything. They took also their money, their food also, because they were hungry. The Russian army was hungry. (Wow.) Maybe the supply was not sufficient, and they were cold. And one women said they’re so strange, they took her clothes to wear. (Oh, wow.) Because maybe the army uniform is not warm enough. (Oh.) And they took their food to eat, and they took their blankets. They took also their money. After they left, that’s how she told the reporters, some of the reporters. And it’s reported on the news. I just saw the brief caption. “Media Report from CNN – Mar. 27, 2022 Reporter (m): Her village was overrun by Russians, and she described dealing with Russian soldiers who were hungry, cold, and out of control. She said, ‘They wore my women’s hat, my coat, my boots. They wore our clothes. They took our bedding. I don’t know what they’ve done with it. They slept, they ate, they wandered about. They stole our money.’ A Russian soldier, whom she said was drunk, blasted her husband’s leg off with a stolen shotgun.”So many stories, just terrible, terrible stories. So, all these people, they’re hungry; the Russian soldiers are hungry, the Ukrainian people are hungry. And the refugees, they went to some countries, and have to put up with many situations. (Yes, Master.) Because of the logistic problems, the influx of the refugees creates problems for their host countries as well. (Yes. Understand.) Because of logistics and infrastructure, so they are cold also, they’re hungry, and maybe don’t have enough food, or have cold food, not like warm, not like at home. (Yes.) And not the way they want it and not what they want. (Yes.) And the children maybe have no milk. Oh, man! And have no food and oh… and get wet or cold in the snow, when it melts and all that, and when it rains. Imagine it’s you, OK? (Yes, Master.) And some refugees went to the UK, and it took so long for the visas. What for they have to take so long? Just stamp and let them in, man! (Yes.) Many countries waive their visa, waive the bureaucracy for the refugees from Ukraine. UK should do that too. (Yes. Right.) Oh, man! They should do that because UK was also one of the guarantors of Ukraine’s sovereignty and peace, when they made Ukraine give up all their nuclear weapons. And the Ukrainian people, loving peace and innocent, gave it all away. That’s how now they have become helpless victims. (Yes, Master.) If they also have nuclear weapons, maybe they could use it as a threat. (Yes. Right.) But they have nothing, just some very little weapons. And the West did not help much. Now they’re helping more, and they pledged to help more. But before, they had nothing, almost, or very little, against the big army of Russia. (Yes. Right.) These terrible things. And I cannot get all of this out of my head. I try to. When I’m working, I forget. When I’m not, I try to get something to eat and it doesn’t taste good. Just today, I warmed up my food, but it’s still there. (Oh.) I wanted to eat, but I did not feel like it. And then we have a conference, so I forgot all about it. Before that, there was something else, so I didn’t have time to eat. And then, when I wanted to eat, I did not feel like it. And now we have a conference, so I thought, “Forget about it.” I don’t feel like eating, even now. Even now. Not that I have eaten anything, since I don’t know when. You see, war affects everybody. (Yes, Master.) And I’m very sensitive with all this. I’m so sensitive, I imagine everything. I saw all the babies, children dying, people, their heads blown away, and their arms broken, just dying on the street in the dirt like that, through no fault of their own. Nothing. They have done nothing wrong. And I saw all that on the screen, and it just makes me sleepless. I was very tired last night even, I wanted to sleep, but I could not. I could not even meditate very well. It is very terrible for me. I hope the war ends soon, otherwise I don’t know if… I asked Heaven, “Why don’t You just kill me? Because I don’t know how long I can bear all this suffering in the world.” So, I wish people would have such a friendship like this. In Âu Lạc (Vietnam), we have a famous… I don’t know if this is Aulacese (Vietnamese) or Chinese. Who is the one that when his friend went away, he put up the bed? He didn’t let anybody sleep on it. Quản Trọng ? Who was it, the two friends? (Guanzhong, Bao Shu Ya.) Guanzhong, Bao Shu Ya. They both are very, very close friends. And whenever his friend’s gone away… I think Bao Shu Ya, went away, then Guanzhong, or Guanzhong went away, any one of the friends went away, the other friend hung the bed up, so that nobody would sleep on it. Only for his friend. And then, when they did business together and one of the friends took more profit than him, and people criticized him. They said, “Oh, he’s cheating you. He took more money than he should have.” So, he said, “No, he has his elderly and sick mother. He has to take care. That’s why he must take more money.” (Yes, Master.) It’s not that he would say, “Oh, yeah? He cheated me, yeah?” He knew. Even though his friend didn’t say anything. But he defended his friend. (Yes. Yes, Master.) He said, “No, he has a mother.” Is that story correct, what I said? (Yes.) If not, please tell me so we can change it. It’s our story so we can always change it. If I’m a politician or something, this won’t do. It will be in the newspapers and they will say, “She doesn’t even know what She’s talking about. Impeach Her. She must be working with Russia. That’s why She doesn’t care what she tells us. She says anything. Must be colluding with Russia.” Like Trump. That’s what they said about Trump. (Yes, Master. Yes.) So scary, this political stuff.

In today’s news, Ukraine receives humanitarian aid from Germany, biggest comet ever to pass sun in next decade, United Kingdom seagrass planting project achieves new milestone, archaeologists find giant stone spheres underground in Costa Rica, benevolent Algerian youngster gives prize money to Palestinian children in need, Singapore vegan food startup wins world food innovation award, and puppy in Southern California, United States saved after accidentally ingesting poisonous palm seed.Germany provides relief assistance to Ukraine. After a NATO summit in Brussels, a press conference was held where the German Chancellor, His Excellency Olaf Scholz, announced that Ukraine and neighboring countries would receive €370 million in humanitarian aid from his nation. Furthermore, generous Germany will provide an additional €430 million to help avoid the catastrophe of a possible worldwide food crisis. His Excellency called upon the other NATO and G7 countries to offer similar support, stating, “Russia’s war is having a dramatic impact on global food supplies far beyond Ukraine. And that is why we must do everything now to prevent a famine. Europe is shouldering a lot here. But we really need a global effort.” Germany is a Shining World Caring Leadership Award and Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion and Wise Governance laureate. We pray all people and countries support the noble Ukrainians in their plight to survive, and that absolute peace will return to the region quickly, in Heaven’s guiding light. Massive comet to pass by the sun in 2031. The comet with the largest nucleus ever seen was recently confirmed by astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. The giant icy mass is 137 kilometers in width, weighs around 453 trillion metric tons, and is expected to pass by the sun at a distance of 1.6 billion kilometers in the year 2031. Known as C/2014 UN271, the celestial body is 100,000 times larger than most comets, and it is hoped that the visit will help scientists find answers to what comets from the Oort Cloud are like. Although the Oort Cloud has not yet been directly observed, it is assumed to be a region where trillions of comets have originated. Thank you, astronomers, for revealing more fascinating information about our beautiful galaxy. In Celestial radiance, may the beauty of our cosmos inspire longing for God in the hearts of all those who gaze up at the stars. Go ahead n make war: cuz the devils in hell r so happy 4 u. They r waiting 2 give u a big fire 2 roast urself in eternally. Up next, United Kingdom seagrass planting project achieves new milestone. We pause to thank the fire prevention inspectors for their diligent work that helps to ensure all buildings are in compliance with the laws and have the necessary safety measures in place to detect possible fire hazards. We’ll return with more wonderful news here on Supreme Master Television. Good day, gentle viewers, I’m Wafa, a vegan doctor from the Humphead Wrasse kingdom. The patients I see in the Coral Clinic are excited to switch to a vegan diet when I tell them it will help their fins and scales look shiny and strong just like mine. Here is a helpful health tip for you. Mnemonics are memorization tools such as an acronym to help you remember things more easily. They not only aid you when taking exams but also during real-life events where you have to act fast, such as recognizing stroke symptoms. The acronym BE-FAST has been used for this example: “B” represents balance being off, swaying or having leg weakness; “E” indicates eye problems such as loss or blurred vision in one or both eyes; “F” stands for facial drooping— test this by asking the person to smile; “A” signifies arm weakness— check by having the person raise both arms; “S” stands for speech difficulty — test this by having them repeat an easy sentence; and lastly, “T” indicates time to call emergency services. You must be swift in identifying stroke symptoms, and the BE-FAST mnemonic will help you check all the critical signs and potentially save a life! Thank you for tuning in, and lots of love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. Now, the worldwide weather. UK’s largest seagrass restoration initiative reaches new milestone. Funded by the European Union (EU)’s LIFE Program and directed by Natural England, the £2.5 million LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES project has planted 70,000 seed bags over 3.5 hectares of seabed. The four-year project will restore a total of eight hectares of seabeds in Plymouth Sound National Marine Park and the Solent Maritime Special Area of Conservation, with the help of volunteers and project partners. These crucial habitats for marine life stabilize the seabed, reduce coastal erosion as well as absorb and store carbon while cleaning the surrounding seawater. In recent decades, disease, pollution and disruption from human activities have threatened Britain’s seagrass survival and there is an estimated worldwide decrease of seagrass beds of 7% annually. The European Union is a recipient of four Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Peace, and a Shining World Leadership Award for Earth Protection; as well as a laureate of two Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism and Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Unconditional World Care and True Caring. Our appreciation, EU’s LIFE Program and Natural England, for your dedication to protecting and restoring the delicate seagrass meadows. In Divine wisdom, may humans learn to live harmoniously and protect the homes of our precious underwater neighbors. Archaeologists find and safeguard giant underground stone spheres in Costa Rica. In a collaborative project between the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) of Mexico and the National Museum of Costa Rica (MNCR), archaeologists recently discovered six giant stone spheres in the Diquís Delta region that range from 0.7 to 2.5 meters in diameter. It is known that during the period from 800 to 1500 AD that the Diquís people living there used the spheres to mark important places within their settlements. The artifacts were cleaned after they were unearthed, repaired with mortar, and then reburied with gravel, sand and geotextile surrounding them for protection. Previously, as many as 300 stone spheres have been excavated from four archaeological sites in the region. Many thanks, INAH, MNCR and all researchers involved, for helping us to discover important cultures from our past. In the brilliance of the Providence, may humanity always learn from the wisdom of the ancient civilizations, as we build our societies based on compassion, love and cooperation. Compassionate Algerian youth donates prize money to disadvantaged Palestinian children. In an international contest called “Mazamez Dawood,” organized by Sudan’s al-Shorooq TV, Abd Elkhalek Boudouda, a young Algerian boy, won the competition for memorizing the Holy Qur'an. At the prize-giving ceremony, Abd Elkhalek expressed his passionate desire to gift his US$2,800 in prize money to Palestinian children in need. He said he was not interested in a new phone or giving the money to his parents but only in helping the children suffering in Gaza. His only wish for himself is to be able to pray in the Holy city of al-Quds (also known as Jerusalem). May Allah bless you, Abd Elkhalek Boudouda and the Palestinian children benefiting from your kindness, with great peace and comfort. May all your gracious wishes come true as altruistic love becomes the choice embraced by all. Vegan: extra life span. Coming up, Singapore vegan food startup wins world food innovation award. We’ll pause for a moment to pray to God to give us hope when things don’t go as planned, so we can still continue trying for the best. Supreme Master Television will return in just a moment with more loving news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Distinguished News for a Kinder World. Singapore vegan food tech company receives world food innovation award with its plant-based egg product. Vegan startup Float Foods has won the “Best Health or Wellness Food” award at the International Food and Drink Event 2022 held in London, United Kingdom. The awarded product “OnlyEg White” is the world’s first 100% plant-based egg-white substitute offering the equivalent protein content of its animal-person-based counterpart. The company plans its commercial launch in 2022 and will also debut other mouth-watering vegan products, OnlyEg Shreds and OnlyEg Patties. Vinita Choolani, founder and CEO of Float Foods, said, “The award ….affirms our ‘Food as Medicine’ ethos that has been the core of our endeavors since day one.” Congratulations, Float Foods, on your recognized nutritious and tasty vegan egg product. In Divine inspiration, may marvelous plant-based foods soon replace all animal-person-based products as veganism becomes the new norm in our world. Canine-person in Southern California, USA, saved after eating palm seed. When pug-puppy Potatoe went for her usual walk with her caregiver Cat Johnson on a familiar path near their house in Newport Beach, the adorable canine-kid ate something from the ground and soon collapsed. Tests administered at the veterinary clinic showed very high liver enzyme levels, which is indicative of sago palm poisoning. Veterinarian Dr. Scott Weldy said that animal-people ingest things like this all the time, and caregivers must watch their furry friends just like they would a child. Fortunately, beloved Potatoe is recovering and will reunite with Ms. Johnson soon. Other flowers and plants that can harm our dog-people companions include azaleas, bird of paradise, tulips, daffodils, hydrangea, oleander, lilies and plumeria. Much appreciation, Dr. Scott Weldy, for your effective treatment. We pray Potatoe will spend many more happy and safe years ahead with Cat Johnson, in Heaven’s benevolence. The giggle-copter is ready to take off and lift our mood. Let’s hop on with the joke of the day entitled “Life Vest.” A customer goes to the shop’s customer service desk… “The life vest you sold me last week really helped me to learn to swim faster than I could have ever expected. But I’m going to need to return it.” “That’s great, but why return it?” “Because as soon as I put it on and stepped into the water, I started sinking. I had to learn how to swim right then and there, just to stay afloat!” ?! And now we have a heartline from Yu-Wen in China: “We Pray for Ukraine. Russia, Go Home!” “God bless Ukraine.” Our Great Master is deeply concerned and sympathetic to the war situation that the Ukrainians are facing. Master feels the misfortune and pain of the Ukrainian people and sheds endless tears of sympathy for the strong people and soldiers who uphold their steel-like fighting spirit in the harsh environment. Master also praises and thanks the kind deeds of all the people who care about and help the Ukrainians! Lord Jesus, Buddha, Great Masters, and all Saints, from ancient times to the present, have warned us, “Do not kill” and not to use animal-people products, such as leather coats, hats, belts, shoes and so on. Because as you kill, you’ll be heavily restrained by the law of cause and effect. Countless facts have proved that even buying meat to eat without killing, you pay the same price as the butcher does, since if no one buys meat, no one would kill. Our Great Master sincerely praises that the Ukrainian people are kindhearted, that they are good children of God. If the Ukrainian people immediately follow Master’s advice and become vegans, the situation will change. This is the best choice both for now and in the future. Concerning the current war situation in Ukraine, our Great Master has warned that governments worldwide must stand with Ukraine and “…you should protect somebody weak and meek, especially when they have the same principles that you uphold so high... The same principle, Ukrainians are fighting for now….” Yes, Master. When strong powers get together, we surely can stop Putin from continuing to invade Ukraine. Ukraine has been suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic like the rest of the world, while at the same time enduring a sudden invasion that shouldn’t have happened. The warmongers didn’t even spare the maternity wards. Women, children, elderly people with mobility difficulties, and many refugees were all bombarded when the invaders found them. The world, as a big family, is obliged to support those in difficulty, either with words or with immediate actions. As the saying goes, “When disaster strikes, help comes from all sides.” I believe that under God’s guidance and with help from justice-defending, peace-loving, and farsighted governments worldwide, the dawn is near. May World Vegan, World Peace arrive soon. Respectfully, Yu-Wen from China Righteous Yu-Wen, Thank you for your heartline. The war in Ukraine has been a tragic reminder of how far humans can fall if they forget their Divine Nature. We pray that the world awakens quickly, so that all killing of humans and animal-people will stop forever. May you and mighty China always know Heaven’s mercy, Supreme Master TV team P.S. Master kindly replied to you: “Confident Yu-Wen, I appreciate your words and your faith in humanity’s goodness, even at this time. If humans see this war in Ukraine as a wakeup call and truly unite to end all suffering, then this horrible situation can resolve. The opportunity is at hand for everyone. I pray that all of us embrace a gentle vegan lifestyle so that world peace may at last dawn and stay forever on this Earth. May the Buddhas bless you and all the nice people of China with enlightenment.” Turn vegan: soar above all violence n cruelty. B ur God-like self again. We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal-people clips. Please send them via SupremeMasterTV.com/heartlineWe sure have enjoyed spending time with you on Noteworthy News. May your heart be elated in Divine love.

(Let me relate one of my own experiences to demonstrate how our Master, Supreme Master Ching Hai, has the incredible power of omnipresence.) “(Hallo, everyone. How are you? I’m so glad that you can join us today for this very special event. While many people think that we’ll surely become malnourished if we eat only plant-based food, scientific research shows otherwise. Pork has a protein content of 16%, whereas soy is 26% protein – far more nutrient-dense than pork. Therefore, more and more vegans are finding out that it is not a big leap to shift from a meat diet to a vegan diet. It’s only a matter of habit. In the sample booklets you received today, there are more details about the benefits of a vegan diet, such as how it improves our health. Since our time is limited today, perhaps I shouldn’t dwell on this too much. So, I’ll limit our discussion on the benefits of a plant-based diet to just a brief summary. Thank you. Thank you, everybody.)” “(Let me now share with you three reasons why practicing with Supreme Master Ching Hai is absolutely the right path. The first has to do with Her power. Let me relate one of my own experiences to demonstrate how our Master, Supreme Master Ching Hai, has the incredible power of omnipresence. It’s like this. One day last May, a day before Master’s birthday, I witnessed something very peculiar. It happened in the hut where Master once stayed, here in Japan. You see, in Master’s room, there were two pairs of decorative items hanging like this. They were made of (vegan) satin. Two pairs - one on each side of the room. Suddenly, I saw that the pair on the right were like two chrysanthemum blossoms blooming upside down. It was just like this chrysanthemum flower here. Very, very beautiful. Two blossoms, blooming like that. Since they were made of (vegan) satin, which is a very soft material, it was impossible for them to open up like that. At the time, Master was in Taiwan (Formosa). Yet, this incident happened far away in the mountain where She once stayed.This is not something that can be explained by science. It’s a supranatural phenomenon. It is even more incredible than the UFO phenomenon that everyone is talking about these days. And yet, it was something that I witnessed with my own eyes.It was just like this. It was an absolute impossibility. Just like this. They were very beautiful, fully blommed, very beautiful. Later, about an hour later, they resumed their original form. That was one of the incidents I experienced first-hand.There was another incident involving the sound of Buddhist chanting coming down from the sky. It was in the mountain where Master once stayed, even though Master was not there at the time. It was a kind of Buddhist chanting descending from above.Nowadays, people tend to think that we are very advanced in science. We can now go to the moon. We can visit the moon like the lady Chang’er. I’m referring to the ancient Chinese fairytale of Chang’er, who flew to the moon. Now, we can go even further than Chang’er. We can ride in submarines and descend ten thousand meters under the sea, just like the Monkey King Wukong in the Chinese mythology ‘Journey to the West.’ He was able to travel the depths of the ocean. But can any scientist today explain such an unbelievable phenomenon? There was another incident. It happened on Master’s birthday once. That day, some fellow initiates in Singapore were celebrating Master’s birthday. There was a picture of Master on the wall. A photograph of Master was hanging on the wall. A fellow initiate was taking pictures, and he took a picture of Master’s photograph. When he developed the film, he found that in the picture he took, Master was wearing a shimmering golden hat.At the time, Master was in Taiwan (Formosa), not Singapore. So, this was an incredible incident. We were awe-struck by Master’s power as exhibited by these miracles. Yet, Master did not know about them at all. For example, if I didn’t mention them today, Master Herself would not know. This means Master has already attained the state of Tathāgata, or ‘one who is beyond all coming and going’ which is a state of ‘no-self’, and ‘doing without doing’. Master has the same power as Quan Yin Bodhisattva, who had an infinite number of “transformation bodies” and great power to liberate the sentient beings of this world from their sufferings.As you may well know, during a life-threatening crisis, the human consciousness becomes intensely focused and powerful. Thus, when hundreds of people pray at the same time for Master’s help during an emergency, unless that person has great power, he or she would either collapse or fall seriously ill. So, you can imagine what tremendous power Master must have to respond to tens of thousands of people praying to Her at the same time in a crisis.When Quan Yin Bodhisattva was alive, She taught the people of Her time to call upon Her for help whenever they were in distress, by reciting the title ‘Namo Quan Yin Bodhisattva.’ She did so out of Her boundless compassion, but She passed away thousands of years ago. It’s like when we’re sick, we have to go to the hospital and get treated by a competent doctor. We cannot seek the help of a doctor who has passed away, no matter how famous he was.)”

On today’s show, we’ll take a look at our food choices and learn about how the dishes we prepare impact our health and Earth’s environment. In one such study, scientists from Oxford University examined the environmental impact of 40 major food products. Their findings, published in a 2018 issue of the journal Science, showed that “cutting meat and dairy products from your diet could reduce an individual's carbon footprint from food by two-thirds.” The study’s lead researcher Dr. Joseph Poore says, “A vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth, not just greenhouse gases, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use, and water use. It is far bigger than cutting down on your flights or buying an electric car.” A more recent study reports that global food production results in at least “17 billion metric tons of GHG (greenhouse gases) per year.” Out of this massive carbon footprint, “animal-based foods account for 57% of emissions, and plant-based foods make up 29%.” A report on this work was published in the scientific journal Nature Food in 2021. A first-of-its-kind 2021 study performed by scientists from the University of Minnesota sheds light on how meat production from animal-people livestock is the leading source of deadly air pollution. Their report states, “Air pollution from animal-based food production is linked to 12,700 deaths each year.” In an interview conducted by the newspaper El Quintanarroense, Supreme Master Ching Hai reveals how the animal-people livestock industry is polluting our planet. “The livestock industry emits 64% of all ammonia, which causes acid rain and hydrogen sulphide – it is a very fatal gas. One animal-people factory farm produces more waste and pollution than the whole city of Houston, Texas, in the USA, not to talk about all the chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics that run into our water that we drink. Yes, even if we filter it, how much can we always avoid because chemicals are not like dirt that you can filter it. Not like sand that you can take the sand out. Chemicals, fertilizers, these substances they’re just diluted in water. I don’t think we can filter them all.” Our Most Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has worked tirelessly to remind us that the only solution to climate change: is the global adoption of the vegan lifestyle. “If we don’t change our disaster-breeding, provoking way, then disasters will never end. I am in tears whenever there is a natural disaster anywhere in the world. My heart aches for the suffering of the people. I feel what they feel, and I am very, very much saddened. But we can only stop the disaster once and for all by tackling the root problem; that is, by stopping the mass murdering of innocent animal-people. Only when we walk in peace and love on this Earth will the Earth and nature respond peacefully to us. If we protect others, we will be protected.”

Positive Changes in Countries Part 38 of a Multi-part Series – Marvelous Governments, Marvelous Citizens: Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives
The government of Malawi is a recipient of the Shining World Leadership Award for its noble compassion, stewardship of financial assistance, and dedication to improving the nation’s well-being. Malawi has made continuous progress in health care for women and children with technical and financial support from the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). To address the damage done by uncontrolled clear-cutting of large jungle tracts, the country’s Department of Forestry launched a campaign in 2017 to reverse the trend and create new job opportunities. Malawi is also committed to educating its young people. Secondary Education Expansion for Development (SEED) is a two-pronged program established in 2019 to increase access to high school instruction, especially for female students. Thanks to decades of political stability and steady growth, Malaysia enjoys one of the most vibrant economies in Asia. It is also mindful of its carbon footprint and has seen strong growth in sustainable sources of power over the past decade. Concerning climate change, a growing number of Malaysians are aware of the connection between their food choices and the environment. The country was ranked the fifth most vegan-friendly tourist destination by HotelFollower.com in 2019. Finally, Malaysian women won a milestone victory in December 2021, when the Appellate Court unanimously ruled that they have the same right as Malaysian men regarding offspring born overseas. The Republic of Maldives is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean southwest of India and Sri Lanka. In 2015, the villas on the island of Gasfinolhu became the world’s first 100% solar-powered luxury resort. In response to the likelihood of rising oceans, a 432-hectare artificial island was created using sand reclaimed from the seabed. Due to repeated requests from tourists for meals without meat, many holiday destinations in the Maldives have opened plant-based restaurants with menus offering a variety of international vegan dishes.

You see, war separates people. That is a sad thing, you know? (Yes, Master.) The same with Ukraine and Russia right now. Even if they are not separate bodily, physically, they’re separate in ideology. Means in their ideal. (Yes, Master.) Yeah, that’s why the father even says to the son, “You are a traitor. You should be shot first.” See that? Not even in the battle, the father wants to shoot the son already. OK, listen, we read some story. One. Last time I promised you. (Thank You, Master.) This story is also from the Jewish Folklore. I just like it because it’s simple. (Yes.) I just like stories anyway. Since I was young, I already liked stories. You know, it’s interesting, (Yes, Master.) (Yes, it is.) and exciting and lifts you up out of your mood a little bit. (Right.) Makes you laugh, makes you cry, and just helps get out of your rut for a while. (Yes.) So, this story is titled, “Two friends.” “Hai người bạn.” “In one of those cities, there were two friends, two special friends that their wonderous and incredible or strange friendship, is well known to everyone else. At that time, a war broke out between their two countries. (Oh. Yes.) And both of them, each was captured and imprisoned by the other king, the other king’s army.” (Yes, Master.) Like the Ukrainian friend is imprisoned by Russia, (Right.) in modern time, now. (Yes.) Yes. And the Russian friend is imprisoned by the Ukrainian government, or military. It happens. (Right.) You see, war separates people. That is a sad thing, you know? (Yes, Master.) The same with Ukraine and Russia right now. Even if they are not separate bodily, physically, they’re separate in ideology. Means in their ideal. (Yes, Master.) Yeah, that’s why the father even says to the son, “You are a traitor. You should be shot first.” See that? Not even in the battle, the father wants to shoot the son already. Or wants him to be shot dead. And the mother falls out with the daughter etc. And friends don’t listen to each other anymore. Cut off. (Right.) Because they cannot believe what the other friend says. (Yes.) The other friend is at the battlefield. (Yes, Master. Yes.) Also witnessing all this atrocity and destruction, but the friend in Russia saw nothing. Only saw like Russian soldiers went out to give blankets and food to Ukrainians and went there just to fix the fascist or the… What else? (Nazis.) Nazis. “So, both of them are in prison, in the enemy’s country. In different countries. (Yes, Master.) After a long time, after some time, one of the friends is set free. Then he began to travel to the capital of the other country.” Not his country, yeah? The other country. (Yes, Master.) The so-called enemy’s capital in order to visit his friend. He probably didn’t know that his friend is in prison. (Oh, God.) “He traveled there, just like usual. So, the king of that country heard that there was a person from the enemy’s land who came to his country. So, he presumed that that person must be a spy. (Oh.) So, he ordered to bring this friend in for execution. (Oh, wow.) Yeah, of course, the king’s men immediately caught this guy and brought him out to the execution area. (Yes.) On the way to the execution, this person who was going to be beheaded had a request. He said, ‘Please…’ He requested that he should be brought to see the king, because he has one thing, very important, to tell the king. Because it’s the last wish of the dead man walking, (Yes.) so the people of the king brought him to see him. He prostrated flat at the feet of the king, asking to delay the execution. The king asked him, ‘But why? Suppose I accept it, what is there for you?’ So, he begged the king, ‘Your majesty formerly, before I came here, I was a very famous businessman in the city where I live. But all my goods and my money are in the hands of all the shop owners, that they have bought from me by credit. They did not pay anything. I have loaned to them also. But I never forced them to make any debt paper. If you kill me now, my wife and children will be in a starving situation. They will not know what to do, because they do not know whom I gave the money to, or I gave the credit, or I loaned money to. And even if they know it, they would not have any way to prove it, to prove that she’s my wife, or anything at all. So, your majesty, I beg you to open your merciful heart. Please, before you kill me, please let me go home for a while. Just a very short while. And then I will collect all the debt, so that my family will have the conditions to continue to survive after I die and never come back again.’” Meaning after he left the world (Yes.) and never comes back. “The king asked him again, ‘But how do I know for sure that you will come back here? You are asking something impossible. Because you ask me that I have to trust a person who has the death sentence, that I should let you go. And then you would come back here to be killed? Who would believe this? What are you saying?’” But the king was not bad. (Yes.) He has patience, and he did not wave his hand immediately and say, “Take him out and kill him.” (Yes.) He was patient and he talked nicely. “So, the prisoner said, the dead man walking said, ‘Your majesty, in your capital, I have a friend, and this friend of mine will definitely be willing to guarantee that I will come back. (Right.) He will guarantee that I will come back. One of your citizens.’ And immediately the king ordered for that person to come in front of him. And then, of course, he came. And the king asked this newly arrived friend, ‘Hey, are you willing to guarantee for this person, he is the one who is already sentenced to death? And he wants to go back home for a while to arrange his business. If he won’t come back to be executed on time, will you die for him, instead?’ So, the friend said, ‘Your majesty, I’m very willing to be the replacement of my friend here. If he doesn’t come back on time, the day that you have ordered, I will accept my death for him.’ (Wow.) So, the king heard that. So he let the one who is sentenced to death to go home for one month. (Oh, wow.) And during this time he … of course he imprisoned his friend, (Yes.) and he was thinking, ‘I really want to see such a strange phenomenon in this world, that a person is really willing to die for his friend. Such a thing really exists?’ So, after thirty days, the time was up. After thirty days, there was no sight of the friend, (Oh, no.) of the person who was sentenced to die. The one who went home, (Yes, Master.) no sight of him. (Wow.) The sun was almost set. The king ordered the replacement, the friend, (Yes.) the other friend from the prison, and brought him out to behead. (Ohhh.) At the moment that the axe was already trying on the neck of the prisoner, and almost lifted up to bring it down to chop the head of that prisoner, then everyone heard a very loud acclamation everywhere in the whole capital, that the one who is sentenced to die is already here, has returned.” (Wow.) He probably asked everybody to please shout loud for him, (Oh. Yes.) because he wasn’t there yet. “So, then immediately, this person, the walking dead person before, immediately went to present himself to the king and then immediately he ran, ran, ran to the execution area, the place where the execution was to take place. At that moment, he yanked the axe from the neck of his friend and put it on his own neck. (Wow!) But the other friend yanked it back from him. (Oh.) And then both of them were yanking back and forth, back and forth, and wrestling with each other, determined to take the axe away for themselves.” (Wow.)
Between Master and Disciples

Host: On Thursday, May 19, 2022, during a conference with Supreme Master Television team members, our Most Benevolent Supreme Master Ching Hai provided some fascinating details about another planet, which She shared from Her diary, and later graciously gave Her insights on questions and good news brought up by the team. This is on the 28th of April. Just because I saw one of the UFOs that people displayed on the internet. But they don’t know where it’s from and if it was a UFO or what. […] It is a UFO, though, (Oh.) these special vehicles from other planets that are more advanced than us. But to tell you the truth, except hell, every other planet is more advanced than us. Such a sorry and sad story. Because we keep killing each other and destroying everything. […] I know this UFO came from only about 152 light-years from our Earth. […] They call it Diw. D-i-w. Diw planet. (Oh.) They just came to check out our world – why we have sent so many signals of trouble and discord. But they cannot help much. (Wow, understand.) Even if they help us now to erase all the wars that we have, humans will continue to kill each other. If not the next day, then maybe next week, next month, next year. If he’s not next door, then another next, next, next door. […] They came just to check out to see why it’s so noisy here. And so much lamenting and sorrowful wailing that they can hear. There's nothing lost in the universe. Our brutality toward each other and other beings shook Heavens and Earth, I told you already. (Yes, Master.) Shook the universe even. (Wow.) Because that's a kind of dark energy, but powerful dark. (Right. Yes.) Maybe you don't feel it, but everyone else does. Even the ghosts and demons, they all feel it. That's why they are attracted to our planet, because of this kind of dark and powerful energy that they can thrive on. (Yes. Understand.) Just like Heaven beings, they thrive on the Light and the Love of God; that kind of energy. […] Any other questions? […] (We have some other questions about Ukraine, if You’re OK. […]) Tell me.(Master, Russia has sent away, expelled dozens of French diplomats out of Russia, including a total of 85 embassy staff from France, Italy, and Spain. As France or Macron seem now to be friendly with Russia, why would Putin do that, Master, expel the French diplomats?)I told you it’s only a one-way affair, no? Even though President Macron tried hard to be diplomatic or affectionate, supportive with the Russian president, but it doesn’t amount to much. Maybe they don’t like the French. (Oh, right.) People like to go to France because it’s famous. It’s for tourists and coffee shops, and like me, I like vegan French cakes and coffee, or vegan French cheese, stuff like that. (Yes, Master.) […] People love France for that, but maybe they don’t like the French people. (Yes, Master. Right.) Maybe they don’t like them, that’s why they threaten France so heavily. And then, just one minister said something and they threaten the whole of France. And even not just President Macron but Madame Marine Le Pen. […] Madame Marine Le Pen was very pro-Russia, pro-Kremlin, and one time she visited him. (Yes.) And it’s printed in the newspaper, I read it somewhere, that Putin told her that Russia doesn’t interfere in the French voting system, voting affairs. He said straight like that. Maybe she wanted him to support her, to help her in some way financially or some other secret way to become French president. (Yes, Master.) Because this is the third time that she […] applied as a presidential candidate. And she fell again. But this time she gained a lot more votes than usual. Almost half. (Wow.) She gained maybe 41 or 42%. That’s a lot more than before. More than 40%, anyway. And Macron gained 58%, the majority. (Yes.) Both don’t need the Russians’ backing anyway. Who knows? Maybe their visit also has some influence for them, for both. (Right.) Quietly. Maybe underneath. (Yes, Master.) I don’t know why they think like that, because there was a scandal, a rumor, that Russia helped Trump to gain votes in that Presidential election of 2016. (Yes.) But after so much research from the FBI even, CIA, they found nothing. (Right.) No trace of it. And they still worry about that. Every time, some problem, they say, “Oh, Russians.” (Yes.) Russians, maybe. Russians behind it. Blah blah blah. (Yes.) And, because the President of Russia and President Trump were on friendly terms. (Yes. That’s right.) Trump wants peace. (Yes, Master.) So, he makes friends with enemies (Right. Yes.) to destroy the enemy. (Yes, Master.) So, when he was there, there’s nothing of the such. No threat. Nothing. Not moving in the war direction. After he’s down, that’s it. Boom. Everything has gone chaotic, (Right.) and unpeaceful. (Yes, Master.) From the North Korea threat to Russia, and to who else? I can’t remember anymore. (Yes, Master.) Taliban, or other rebel groups in Afghanistan, and Pakistan, and other places. Small and big every day. In Mali. In Africa somewhere. In so many places. Small or big. (Yes, Master.) And Ukraine is the most explosive one, and the most sudden. (Yes.) There was no warning in advance, except for those times that Russia prepared at the border. (Yes, Master.) But that was very short. […] I told you, it’s only a one-way street. (Right, Master.) […] Alright. What else? […] (I have another question, Master.) Tell. (There are over 260 Ukrainian soldiers from the Azovstal Steel Plant in Mariupol. They were evacuated to Russian-controlled territories. Now, some prominent people in Russia are labeling them as “terrorists.” Why would they call them that, Master?) Why not? Because their President Zelenskyy is a fascist, and a what? (Nazi.) A Nazi. So, if they’re terrorists, why are you surprised? (Yes, that’s right.) I don’t know if there’s any other vocabulary that Putin can use to label anybody he wants. (Yes, Master.) […] Also, the reason is because right now, Ukraine’s independent court is investigating war crimes, with evidence, from maybe some individuals, crazy Russian youngsters. (Yes, Master. Yes.) They’re only 20, 21 or 18, 17 even. (Yes, Master.) So, they probably don't know how to handle the situation and they may be scared. (Yes.) So, they just shoot before being shot at. They’d rather shoot before others, the so-called enemies, shoot at them. (Yes.) Either that or maybe they are a crazy person or sadistic. There are all kinds of mentalities in any society, especially in the army. When they group together, there’re all kinds of ego, all kinds of mental states of mind, all kinds of sickness also; (Yes, Master.) mental sickness, psychological disorders, etc. (Yes.)But saying that doesn't mean that atrocities have not been committed, (Right.) or should be just forgotten. (Yes.) The Ukrainian people, they have had their family members shot for no reason. (Yes.) They have had their children raped and murdered. (Yes, Master.) They cannot just say, “OK, forget it, because this guy is young. (Yes, Master. That’s right.) He didn't mean to, or he's scared. It doesn't matter.” A crime is a crime. They have to investigate. (Yes, Master.) And with so much evidence, they cannot just ignore it. (Yes, Master. That’s right. That’s true.) So, Russia just wants to label. If they do label these heroes of Ukraine as terrorists, it’s a laughing stock anyway. Anybody would know. (Yes, Master.) You come into people's country and they defend their own country for their people, their nation, and you label them “terrorists?” It should be the opposite. Russia should be called terrorists. (Yes, that’s right.) (Yes. It’s true.) So, you know the answer. Even a five-year-old can tell you. (Yes, Master.) Alright, good. Anything else? (We don’t have other questions, Master. But we have some good news.) Tell me. Good. (Yes, Master.) (Ukrainian officials say their troops have reclaimed some towns near Kharkiv in northern Ukraine. Military analysts also say Ukraine’s northern campaign continues to successfully push Russian forces back towards the border.) Yes, they did. They even brought a big frontier post to put it there and take photographs together. (Yes, that’s right.) "May 15, 2022 (In Ukrainian) Soldier (m): Mr. President, we have reached it, we are here. Here, the frontier post, with us, we put it back up, a sign behind our back. Mr. President, we have reached it, we are at the border."They did take Kharkiv. They reclaimed many other areas as well. (Yes, Master.) It's just Mariupol is a bitter pill. For both. For Russia as well. And they just want to take control of that. Just for their interests, strategic gain. (Yes, Master.) Just like they want Odessa and/or Crimea for the controlling of the Black Sea. You see, the ports of Ukraine, where Ukraine can export their wheat, oil and other essentials to other countries, by ship. (Yes.) And it's quicker, because ships can carry more than trains or trucks can. (Yes, Master.) "Media Report from NBC News - May 19, 2022 Reporter (m): Russian troops were first driven back from Kyiv and now from around the eastern city of Kharkiv, where Ukrainian forces have been blowing up bridges to stop Russian advances. But while Russian troops are struggling to hold territory, their grip on the port city of Mariupol and a naval blockade in the Black Sea are strangling Ukraine, cutting off many imports and the export of the country's most important commodity – grain. The head of the World Food Programme made a direct appeal to President Putin to let Ukraine export its grain for the sake of global food security. David Beasley: It is absolutely essential that we allow these ports to open, because this is not just about Ukraine, this is about the poorest of the poor around the world who are on the brink of starvation as we speak. So, I ask President Putin, if you have any heart at all, to please open these ports." So, they control that. That's what they wanted. They want to control the whole of Ukraine, but they failed. They failed at Kyiv, so they just turn to lesser areas, just to claim something, these strategic points. (Yes.) Good news. I saw that also and I’m happy. Some part of me is happy. But there are many more suffering still. Mariupol, I hope the Ukrainian soldiers will reclaim it soon. Just as they reclaimed Kharkiv. (Yes.) Maybe slowly, but I think they will. They just cannot protect many points at the same time. (Yes, Master.) So maybe temporarily, they let the soldiers come up. The soldiers did not want to. Their family wanted them to. (Yes.) And none wanted to. But maybe President Zelenskyy wanted to save their lives. (Yes.) That’s why he probably ordered them to come out. Even though there are Russians outside. Otherwise, they did not want. They said they wanted to fight till the end, even if they’re agonizingly wounded or having injuries without medicine, losing arms and legs without any help. (Yes, Master.) It’s just that President Zelenskyy didn’t want them to continue to die in such an agonizing way like that. (Yes, Master.) Probably he ordered them to come out. Not surrender. Just tell them to come out to save them. Because if they are prisoners, they’re still alive. (Yes, Master.) And later, they already plan to swap prisoners. (Yes.) Or just kick the Russians out altogether, then no need to swap anything. (Yes, Master.) Because their family requests. (Yes.) I saw some family members even went to p. Francis to beg him to help their husbands who are the defenders, the soldiers in this steel plant down there. (Yes, that’s right.)So maybe pressure from all sides. So they both, President Zelenskyy and the soldiers down there are also thinking, “We better just ease it off for now. And we take it back later. Or we swap the prisoners, so at least the wounded will be treated.” Even treated under the Russian control, it’s still better than losing their lives or dying in such a painful, agonizing, undignified way. (Yes, Master.) That’s why it is, otherwise, they wouldn’t want to go. (Yes. Right.) If they wanted to, they would have gone a long time ago. Or when they were wounded, they would go and surrender for treatment. They didn’t. (That’s right.) They didn’t care about treatment even. They were buried in there for months already. (Yes, Master.) "Media Report from PBS Newshour - May 18, 2022 Reporter (m): They held out for nearly three months, living and fighting from tunnels designed to withstand nuclear attacks. Their resistance prevented Russia from consolidating its gains, and today Ukrainian officials called them heroes." "Media Report Channel 4 News - May 17, 2022 Reporter (m): They’d fought, even though they were outnumbered and surrounded. The steel factory was their last holdout, their Alamo. But it couldn’t last forever. Footage released by pro-Russian separatists proports to show some of the wounded, who’d been holed up in (the) Mariupol steelworks for months. Late on Monday, (the) Ukrainian forces that occupied it, ordered by President Zelenskyy to leave. The last remaining stronghold in the southern port city. More than 50 of the most severely wounded were transferred to a hospital in a nearby town. Those who could walk out themselves were sent to another. Both towns controlled by Russian-backed separatists. Ukrainians insist that this is the start of a prisoner swap. Ukrainian: Glory save Azov! Glory save Azov!Reporter (m): The wives of the soldiers inside had begged the Ukrainian president to save their husbands. And this from the Ukrainian president himself, a carefully worded message, a demonstration of the tightrope he is walking here, by way of a deal. President Zelenskyy: I want to stress that Ukraine needs Ukrainian heroes alive. That’s our principle. I think that any reasonable person will understand these words. The operation to save the defenders of Mariupol has been started by our military intelligence. The work continues to return guys home. And this work requires delicacy and time." Next. Anything else? (Yes, next good news. The world’s most powerful industrialized nations have announced Russia’s territorial claims in Ukraine have no legitimacy. In a statement, the G7 [Group of Seven] said: “We will never recognize borders Russia has attempted to change by military aggression, and will uphold our engagement in the support of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including Crimea, and all states.”) Bravo! That’s what I said – don’t give them anything, not even one inch. Because give them this, they want that. (Right. Yes.) Give them an arm, they want a leg. This type of mentality has no shame, no morals, no reason, no logic, nothing. Just go and kill and kill. (Yes.) And take their land and then submit them to you, because of terrorizing tactics, just like they did in Finland some decades ago. At that time, the Finnish people, they were also very gentle and they just gave in to save people’s lives. (Yes, Master.) That’s why this time they didn’t wait, to join NATO. (Right.) They already officially submitted, and NATO already accepted their submission. But protocol, must discuss and all that. And the Finnish government even said to their citizens to brace themselves, and their soldiers all ready. Because, they say, “In the waiting period, we are vulnerable.” It is like that. Because they’re not officially a NATO member. (Yes.) So, Russia could just come in and attack them. But when the President of Finland talked to Putin, he was supposed to have said, “Why? We don’t threaten you. It’s a mistake that you join NATO.” But very calm. (Oh.) Not threatening or anything. Yeah, yeah, but cut electricity first. My God. Not threatening. Don’t have to threaten, just do it. (Yes, Master.) One way or another. Who knows what he’ll do next? So, Finland was rushing, said, “We join, don’t wait further.” And the whole nation supports it. Parliament and everybody support that decision. First, they have to talk to each other within the country, their own government. And if they’re all OK, then they join NATO. (Yes.) They already gave the application. It’s official. "Media Report from PBS Newshour - May 16, 2022 Judy Woodruff (f): As we’ve reported, Sweden's Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson today announced that her country would join NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, ending more than 200 years of military nonalignment. The announcement follows a similar one this weekend from neighboring Finland." "Media Report from Guardian News - May 20, 2022 Jon Henley: Finland and Sweden's decision to apply to join NATO really does represent a historic shift. Russia's invasion of Ukraine has really proven it to be a really unreliable and positively dangerous neighbor. It's caused Finland and Sweden to perform a really dramatic U-turn on decades of previously nonaligned security policy. Sauli Niinistö: They (Russia) are ready to attack a neighboring country. (In Swedish) Magdalena Andersson: Should Sweden be the only country in the Baltic Sea region that was not a member of NATO, we would be in a very vulnerable position." "Media Report from PBS Newshour - May 16, 2022 Nick Schifrin: The invasion of Ukraine has changed everything. In 2017, 22% of Finns and 32% of Swedes supported joining NATO. Today, those numbers are 76% in Finland and 53% in Sweden." "Media Report from Guardian News - May 20, 2022 (In Swedish) Woman: It feels like we have to pick a side, and in that case, I choose NATO every day of the week ahead of Russia. Man: I used to be against it, but after the war in Ukraine, I’m very much for it. Woman2: I’m afraid that they would kill everyone and that they would change everything. (In English) Jon Henley: This really shows that actions have consequences and that they sometimes have quite the opposite consequences of what might be intended. Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine partly on the pretext that Ukraine was about to join NATO, and so there's a quite remarkable irony – the very expansion of NATO that Putin was seeking to prevent, he has actually caused. Journalist (m): Do you fear it could be seen as a provocative gesture by Vladimir Putin? Sauli Niinistö: Well, my response would be that 'You (Putin) caused this. Look (in) the mirror.'" "Media Report Channel 4 News - May 17, 2022 Reporter (m): In an extraordinary move, a Russian military analyst and retired general told Russian state TV that the war saw no good outcome for Russia. (In Russian) Mikhail Khodaryonok: In a way, we are in full geopolitical isolation. And however much we would hate to admit this, virtually the entire world is against us." It’s not like, OK, if you want to join NATO, you should jump in. It’s not like that. There are many conditions, many requirements, on whether you can join NATO or not. (At the moment Turkey’s President Erdoğan said they opposed it.) Yeah. Perhaps Turkey is somehow pro-Russia. Because I read it in the news that the oligarchs’ ships, which were supposed to be already sanctioned by the West, but some of them are docking in Turkey’s sea. (Oh, yes.) Turkey’s water. And also, there are many homes bought by Russians there, Russia’s rich. (Ah, OK.) Recently, more than before. Recently, there is a rush in properties in Turkey. (Trying to avoid the sanctions.) Yeah! So, what about that? On one side, one foot is in NATO, and another foot is for Russia. (Yes, Master.) So, what right or for what reason should Erdoğan prevent or try to obstruct Finland and Sweden from joining NATO? (Understand, Master.) I hope that’s a good answer to your question? (Yes, Master. Thank You, Master.) This world is… most politicians, they have double standards. That’s why recently there was a big protest, a big rally supporting the opposition leader. (Oh, OK.) They are not all clean. I hope some are clean. Otherwise, the world is all corrupt. What can Turkey do anyway? I mean, it’s just because there are some conditions in the NATO policy. They ask many questions. Whether or not the country can join, according to this and that requirement. (Yes.) And maybe one of the requirements is that whether or not in your country, your government ever oppressed any minority, or was aggressive, or anything like that. (Yes, Master.) Or maybe tendency, or siding with terrorist groups. Such things like that. (Yes.) And Finland is supposed to be reportedly siding with the Kurds. (Yes, that’s right.) And the Kurdish people are the so-called enemy of Turkey, or President Erdoğan. (Yes.) So, they use that, trying to split hairs. (Yes, Master.) But I don’t know if they have evidence enough. Because Finland was a neutral country. (Yes, Master.) So, being neutral, they don’t make enemies or side with anybody. (Yes. Right, Master.) So, because of that, maybe they’re friendly or just neutral with the Kurdish people, or Kurdish group. (Yes.) But that doesn’t mean that they’re against anybody else. (That’s right.)It’s just like Switzerland, they’re neutral. (Right.) If France and Germany were fighting, they probably don’t join any of them. And they really broke their protocol helping Ukraine, to some degree. But they didn’t help at all in the end, because they stopped Germany sending some equipment, some important, big, relevant equipment to Ukraine, because of their neutrality. (Yes, Master.) They do help some themselves, but they don’t let Germany send more weapons by Switzerland. Maybe Germany has their companies there. (Yes, Master.) Just like many companies go to China and make business there, open companies there, like that. (Yes.) […] But I’m not happy either, when they’re killing. (Yes.) But there are some possessed by demons. For example, like that young soldier just killing all innocent children and all that. (Yes.) A lot. Many of them who has nothing to do with him, who didn’t harm him. (Yes, Master.) My God. So, because of this trial of the war crimes, Russia wants to step up their level of accusation. (Right.) Go a step further. "Media Report from NBC News - May 18, 2022 Richard (m): The Ukrainian government said they'll be part of a prisoner swap, but Russia said tonight it's considering labeling the Ukrainian soldiers members of a terrorist group, and will investigate each fighter for possible crimes against civilians. It appears to be Russia's way of pressuring Ukraine not to put more Russian soldiers on trial for war crimes." Not just war crimes, but “terrorists.” (Yes.) Oh, yeah. You go into somebody’s country, I told you already, and then bomb the hell out of everybody, and then accusing their defenders of being terrorists. (Ridiculous.) Oh, this is too much. (Yes.) Oh, God. They know no moral limit. No shame, nothing. […] I just felt sorry for Putin, because I’m thinking how he is going to suffer endlessly and inconceivably in hell. And it will be like eternity, and he doesn’t even know it. My God, how ignorant can human beings be? Even if you are a devil, you should know that there is the law of cause and retribution for everyone, no matter if you’re a king or a slave or, street sweeper or champion in the world, it’s the same. Everybody has to go under this law: cause and effect. (Yes, Master.) Like, if you plant an apple seed, you will have an apple tree. It’s so simple. He doesn’t know it. My God. (Yes, Master.) Nobody can help him. That’s why I feel sorry for him. (Yes, understand, Master.) But of course, that doesn’t mean that I could ignore all the atrocities that he did to the Ukrainian people. (That’s right.) Oh, God. I don’t know how to explain all this. I don’t know why people can be like this. It is also the influence by the negative power. (Yes.) That’s one way I also feel sorry. (Yes, Master.) That devil should never exist. And because we also partially are creating the devil by the bad energy that we emit through killing, and being bad and denying God. (Yes, Master.) I mean the humans living like there is no tomorrow, not caring who dies or who lives, who dies and how, as long as you are good. It’s terrible. (Yes, understand.) […] (Why do You feel sorry for Putin, Master?) I don’t know, my love. It just came naturally like that. And it’s still lingering there together with my sorrow and anguish for the Ukrainian victims and their nation. And the injustice and unfairness of it. (Yes, Master.) Maybe because I know he’s also badly damaged by the bad energy, and the bad influence of, for example, these killer entities from the black hole. (Yes, Master.) It’s the atmosphere in our world that breeds this type of energy and these types of entities like Putin. (Yes, Master.)I did not want it. I did not even think of him. I never thought I would feel sorry or love for him. Just like a mother’s love for the son. That much. (Yes, Master.) And I don’t even know him. I never met him or talked to him. He has nothing to do with me. And for all that he does, I expected that I would hate him. (Yes, Master.) But I did not expect that I would love him or feel sorry for him. (Yes, Master. That’s just the natural way of a Master. You feel love for everything.) But I’m surprised myself, too. Why would I love an entity like that? (Yes, Master.) The whole world hates him and curses him. Why does such a love come over me? (Yes, understand.) I feel so sorry and so like I would want to comfort him. That much. (Wow. Yes.) And to tell him to turn around now. But, of course, nobody would listen to me. Least of all, Putin. (Yes. That’s right.) I talked to all the sane people in the world and not many listen to me anyway. If they don’t harm me, it’s already God’s blessing, God’s protection.I’m also surprised that this love has come over me, I cannot help it. It’s still there. (Wow.) I mean, it’s not all day all night, like whenever I think about it, it’s still there. (Wow.) I thought it was just for that moment. (Yes.) Maybe something touched me. Maybe his face looked sad or something that touched me that day, that moment, maybe. But it’s still there. This kind of very unattached, unconditional love. (Yes. Understand, Master.) But, very real. Very deep. And very surprising to me. (Wow.) I never thought I would have this kind of love for a person or entity like Putin. (Yes, Master.) (Could it be that he’s praying inside, or something that reaches You? Or no?) Possible. But I could not find out. Heaven doesn’t let me know anything. I just feel this love for him. Probably, if I have enough time to meditate and deeply investigate it, then maybe I would know why. (Yes, Master.) But right now, I truly don’t have time. (Yes, understand.) Time for praying, for World Vegan, for the animal-people, time for praying for humans. Time to pray for individual countries like Ukraine or Syria, or whatever country in trouble. (Yes.) […] I guess it’s just something from inside. (Yes, Master.) Just something natural suddenly comes out. And I had a vision of him. Like, he’s kneeling in front of me, next to me and I feel like he wants me to embrace him or put my hand on his head, to say, “It’s alright. I forgive you.” (Oh, wow.) I do forgive him and I told him, “I do forgive you. It’s just that I don’t know if other souls will forgive you or not.” He said to me, “Sorry,” while he was kneeling like that in front of me. (Yes, Master.) Like very close, no feeling of fake embarrassment or shyness, or any distance. And I truly feel that I feel love for him. And I feel that he truly is repentant. But how I can even show this to anyone else? I said, “I pray that Heaven forgives you. I do forgive you and I do have love for you. That’s all I can say.” And he just didn’t want to go. He just kneeled there and wanted me to put my hands on his head. (Wow.) That’s all. Just a feeling, he did not demand. (Yes, Master.)It’s very difficult to live in this world. You just can’t have things black and white. And people do crazy things under the influence sometimes. (Yes, Master.) Like a demon took over the body and the mind and then they use that body to create havoc, and the real soul of that person might not want it, might not want any violence or might feel really repentant but the mind might not know it. That’s the thing. (Yes, Master.)I don’t think Putin will ever come and kneel in front of me and ask for forgiveness like that. He didn’t ask for forgiveness, he just said, “Sorry.” Just one word, “Sorry.” And really, he was very sorry. (Yes, Master.) I could feel that. He didn’t have to fake it. (Yes, understand.) That was between the souls. (Yes, Master.) Soul talk.Perhaps that’s why I feel like he really repents and truly feels sorry. But I don’t know what else to do. I keep telling him, “Putin, just call your troops home, first. Then I’ll see what else I can do for you. I’ll do my best.” But I don’t think this is mind talk. It’s soul communication. And I’m not sure if his soul can get to his mind, to tell the mind what to do. […] So, that will answer your question. (Yes, Master. I hope his soul is strong enough to be able to talk his mind out of it, out of the Russian invasion.) Yes. Yes. The sooner the better for him. (Yes.) And, of course, much better for the poor, innocent Ukrainian people. (Yes, Master.) I’m torn. I’m torn daily seeing, hearing their suffering and pain, and feeling so frustrated and helpless. (Yes, Master.) But karma is karma. […] It felt like he’s truly, humbly sorry. But I cannot do anything with other souls, whether or not they forgive him. (Yes, Master.) That’s for them to decide. I do hope they forgive him also. What’s the use of carrying a big burden of hatred and vengeance in your heart. It just makes you feel more heavy, in your mind and in your feeling. (Yes.) But it’s difficult to forgive people. Difficult. That’s why we continue to have war and hatred and sorrow and pain and pandemic and disaster and hunger and all that. Because the hatred cannot dissolve, the hatred energy. And it keeps clinging to these people who carry the hatred and vengeance program, wanting to revenge. (Yes.)I just hope one day, either this or that, maybe the hatred will be dissolved and that we will have peace, World Vegan, World Peace. (Yes, Master.) That’s all we have to do: all people go vegan, all people make peace. It’s not difficult. (No, Master.) It’s doable, it’s just people are too fixed in their own way and don’t want to change. […] Host: Our immense thankfulness for Merciful Master’s guidance of humanity towards a more noble and uplifted world, as well as Her loving sacrifices and blessings during this important time on Earth. We pray that we may all open our hearts to unconditional Love, in order to accept each other as brothers and sisters, to achieve real and lasting equality between all pure, beloved children of God. May this Love help us adopt the peaceful, vegan diet, for a brighter and more tranquil planet. We wish Master safety and vigorous health, in the kind assistance of all Splendid Heavens.
