Văn Hóa Magazine features Supreme Master Ching Hai’s words of wisdom on climate change. The current February-March 2009 issue of Văn Hóa Magazine, headed by esteemed chief editor and publisher Mr. Lý Kiến Trúc, and considered a great contribution to the Aulacese (Vietnamese) community, features the article, “Supreme Master Ching Hai and Her Global Warming Alarm Bell,” which presents the urgent matter of global warming, with excerpts from Supreme Master Ching Hai’s insightful remarks and advice given during numerous videoconferences with our Association members as well as dignitaries and the public. The following is an excerpt from this issue of Văn Hóa magazine:
“Faced by the immeasurable upheaval of global warming, Supreme Master Ching Hai, a humanitarian, an artist, and a spiritual teacher, has wholeheartedly devoted her efforts to protecting the environment by her practical actions through conferences with scientists around the world, in order to bring forth a better life for people, so that humans and all other beings are able to live in peace and harmony. With an open heart, an immense love of the boundless that goes beyond any frontier of culture and race, she has always lived by her expectation of a brighter future for Earth.”
VOICE: The article concludes by echoing support for Supreme Master Ching Hai’s dream for the world, which would grant all inhabitants a profound peace as well as secure the planet’s future.
“The dream is so simple, yet so noble! We pray that thousands of people will understand your aspiration, and understand your pain to quickly change their heart and mind.
All it takes is to eat vegetarian diet,
To become a vegetarian,
And choose the vegetarian lifestyle.
Then everything will settle down. Natural disasters will not happen again. And especially global warming will also vanish.
One day, when our co-inhabitants are no longer subject to being killed, how highly civilized our Earth will be!
The question is are we ready for the vegetarian lifestyle now?
The answer is now or it is too late.”
VOICE: Our hearts resonate with the earnest and hopeful message conveyed by Văn Hóa Magazine, whom we laud and appreciate. We too are ever grateful for Supreme Master Ching Hai’s beacon of guidance and confidence in humanity to meet the climate challenge. May similarly noble-minded media everywhere join in the call for the vital choice of veg, so that all may soon live on a heavenly Earth.
