Supreme Master Ching Hai on the Environment: Compassion Begets Compassion In response to the deep concern of Australian Association members on the incessant natural disasters around the world caused by global warming Supreme Master Ching Hai comforted them via a videoconference saying “If human beings could regain the memory of their great true self and live along with it all the disasters would be reduced to minimum almost zero.” She further emphasized “Right now the most important thing is to encourage people to live a virtuous life adopt a vegetarian diet and avoid killing. Then there would be no more disasters.” By the end of this motivating and uplifting conference Supreme Master Ching Hai concluded “If two-thirds of the world population becomes vegetarian then we can save the world and repair the Earth. The vegetarian people would be full of love and compassion and live on the Earth happily.” Date: 08/17/2008 Place: Sydney Australia Occasion: Videoconference Language: English Subtitles: Arabic Aulacese Bulgarian Simplified Chinese Traditional Chinese Croatian Czech English French German Hindi Hungarian Indonesian Italian Japanese Korean Polish Portuguese Russian Spanish Thai Number of DVDs: 1
