Supreme Master Ching Hai has often emphasized the
importance of being good stewards of the ecosphere to safeguard the
welfare of our fellow co-inhabitants, as during an international
gathering in August 2008.
Supreme Master Ching Hai:
So many whales and dolphins, they wash up ashore and die. There are so
many dead zones in the ocean.It’s suffocating them, so they have to swim
out of the water where it’s full of the poisonous gas that has been
released! They cannot bear it, they cannot breathe. So they have to get
out of it. http://www.laht.com/article.asp?ArticleId=356071&CategoryId=14094http://mx.news.yahoo.com/s/27042010/38/n-technology-rescatados-quince-cetaceos-varados-playa.htmlhttp://mx.news.yahoo.com/s/27042010/38/n-technology-rescatados-quince-cetaceos-varados-playa.htmlhttp://www.latercera.com/contenido/680_254765_9.shtmlhttp://www.cooperativa.cl/delfines-que-vararon-en-costa-iquiquena-fueron-salvados-por-la-comunidad/prontus_nots/2010-04-26/141937.htmlhttp://focustaiwan.tw/ShowNews/WebNews_Detail.aspx?Type=aLIV&ID=201004190026 http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/archives/2010/04/20/2003471007http://www.bellinghamherald.com/2010/04/20/1394365/dead-whale-had-plastic-sweatpants.html
For them, life is in the water, but if water is full
of poison, of course they come out. But when they come out, they die,
too. Because they have no water. They stay in the ocean, they die; they
came out, they die. There is no choice for them. This is the worst of
all cruelty, that the people don’t take care of the environment.
And let all beings keep dying like this.
to be vegan, how difficult can it be? Even the dolphins have to swim
out of the ocean; because they think like that they can survive, even
risking their lives. So why not we can just can change to vegan diet?
