With diverse flora and fauna, magnificent natural landscapes, and an ecological biosphere that supports life,
this wondrous planet is our earthly home.
From our animal co-inhabitants to the lush rainforests and life-giving soil,we cherish all these as gifts from the Creator.
It is a common theme in the world’s major faiths that during our temporary stay here, we should be good
stewards of Mother Earth.
Throughout the years, Supreme Master Ching Hai has shared the message of leading a balanced life while following a spiritual path.
