III. ._/♥\_BUDDHISM, PEACE & ECOLOGY in 2010-11
This Teaching was published in April 2010 at the HERITAGE OF MANKIND , commemorating DAY OF EARTH last year. Now more people around the world know about the DAY OF EARTH and how to support it : change your eating habits, have compassion toward animals : be vegetarian or vegan , meditate and pray: OM MANI PADME HUM
Dalai Lama said : Our visit to this planet is short, so we should use our time meaningfully, which we can do by helping others wherever possible. And if we cannot help others, at least we should try not to create pain and suffering for them….
Improved technology, population growth and globalization have made today’s world increasingly interdependent. Therefore, putting your own country’s interests first, at the expense of others, can have serious consequences. What we need to do is to think of humanity as a whole and develop a sense of concern on a global level. I refer to this as having a sense of “universal responsibility”.

3.1. GO VEG, BE GREEN. SAVE THE PLANET.开始吃素加入环保拯救地球。
Every day is Earth day : join vegetarian and vegan generations for spiritual development of humanity
Homage to Shakyamuni Buddha , enlightened Teacher of gods and men
Imagine such humanity where no human kills or support killing of animals and people , where all people are pure vegans….there is no killing for their food. Imagine such humanity where no human is lying or being untruthful….where all humans are completely authentic, sincere, open and helping each other….Imagine such humanity where no human is stealing, where all are generous and sharing resources. Imagine such humanity where all humans avoid alcohol, drugs, tobacco and all kind of intoxicants….There is not even production of these intoxicating substances….There are no wine and opium producers, pharmacy lobbyist, no drug dealers and consumers.
Imagine such humanity where all humans avoid sexual misconduct, there is no pornography, trafficking, child abuse and other degenerations of human beings, where couples are faithful and respectful to each other….. Is such enlightened humanity difficult even to imagine for you ? Buddha Shakyamuni taught about pancasila or five ethical precepts as first step toward enlightened humanity… and spiritual development of of every man and women. In this time of kaliyuga with natural disasters like Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, many tornado in South of USA and elsewhere we started new ongoing event on Facebook social network : event started on the Earth day April 22,2011. In few days more than 350 attended from all over the world. Our commitment is to promote peace and spiritual development through prayers, vegetarian and vegan diet, research and positive motivation. We all say NO to nuclear energy and support green movement .
All planet is interdependent : nuclear cloud from Fukushima spread to US East coast and further to West coast. Japan government office Tesco is trying to label independent measurement of radiation as illegal . This means they don´t care enough for the people. They care to suppress independent research. Is this true science ?!
More than 500.000 Europeans signed the petition urging EU commission to stop implementing EU directive against natural herbal medicine , but this directive still came into effect on May 1 ! EU commission works in favor of pharmacy industry lobby , numerously represented at EU headquarter . This directive is very undemocratic and against basic human rights of everyone to choose the therapy. Europe has hundreds of years in herbal medicine treatment which is now suppressed . How can EU commission suppress its own natural heritage in favor of pharmacy lobby ?! Politicians who don´t work for the welfare of humanity but in interest of different lobbying groups , provide dark scenario for humanity. But they don´t rule the world. Collective karma of humanity does not depend only on them and what mass media present as their “only truth”. HH the Dalai Lama once said on the Teaching about Bodhicitta : We are all responsible for the future of humanity . Let us contribute as much as we can !
Today everyone with knowledge about internet publishing can contribute his/her wisdom and intelligence in service of humanity. It is like drop of wisdom – every drop counts . Remember the movie Evan Almighty , when the god asked Evan : How do we change the world ? With Acts of Random Kindness…A.R.C. We can wee that now the time for peace conferences is over – We need compassionate and wise actions . Only the Buddha can see all suffering of animals that are killed to become food for ignorant humans . There is immense killing on all continents and this killing continue day by day… also in the name of religions – who can enlighten Muslim believers and Shivaistic believers that God does not want animals sacrifice ! If priests truly work in service of humanity , they must be strictly against animal sacrifice . Animals sacrifice is uncivilised , unreligious and unethical act of ignorance . Amimal sacrifice must be prohibited by the laws of every country ! Negative karma of killing is widely spread all over the planet: as a result we see natural disasters where many people are killed and where many people suffer.
Healing Meditations and prayers
are concrete virtuous actions to improve spiritual progress of humanity. Added to ahimsa or non-violence , compassion toward all , such virtuous actions can be promoted by any spiritually developed human being. Ancient Chinese story tells us : Compassion begins at the dinner table ! If you stopped eating meat all the time , your meditations and prayers will be more authentic . Buddhas and Bodhisattvas pray for all sentient beings in samsara. We have Faith in these noble facts ! Without faith humans are just like helpless children without guidance. Vows of Amitabha Buddha are immeasurable.
With noble intentions and virtuous actions everyone can join our ongoing Dharma events , for your own spiritual transformation : Go Veg. Be Green. Save the Planet ! Spiritual practitioners share photos , vegetarian and vegan recipes , insights , support , prayers and meditations . Every day is Earth day – join vegetarian and vegan generations for spiritual progress of humanity. Yes, you can do it – try your best !

P.S. Many of us joined this cause on Facebook and are supporting green movement in our daily life. Green initiative from Styria, Austria, plans freedom march to nearest Krško nuclear plant in Slovenia, in Autumn 2011. Krško nuclear plant was built in 80s by Slovenian and Croatian governments , on the border between Slovenia/Austria , 70 km away from Styria region. Green movement in Austria is also opposing the work of new nuclear plant in Temelin in Czech republic , not far away from Vienna. Most nuclear plants in Europe are operating in France – even 75 !!!

The nuclear industry is unlike any other industry, in the range of topics to which it relates. The effects of the nuclear industry, and its eventual viability depend on the way in which it relates to each of these topics.
There can not be such censorship. People have the right to independent information also !

For them these facts that are now known by their consequences (karma = cause, condition, effect) are still inconvenient truth ! Buddha Dharma-OBFI

Márcio André Moraes Rios Brazil. There is simply no reason why animals should be slaughtered to serve as human diet when there are so many substitutes.Man can live without meat. Love and peace too. OM SVASTI Those who eat meat of murdered animals, confirm their ignorance and unawareness. May Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva enlighten them .

3.4 The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, UN Foundation
“Nearly 2 million people around the world – mostly women and children – die each year from an activity that many of us take for granted: cooking for our families,” Ms. Roberts said. “I am proud to stand with Secretary Clinton to work to reduce the senseless and preventable deaths from unsafe cooking conditions in the developing world and I look forward to contributing to the important work of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.”
Dear BUDDHA DHARMA, Thank you for supporting the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves’ goal of helping 100 million homes adopt clean and efficient stoves and fuels by 2020, you are helping to improve the health of millions of women and children in the developing world.
You can help stop the next Fukushima. There are plans to build the biggest nuclear power plant in the world in an earthquake zone on the west coast of India. The Jaitapur nuclear project is only possible with financing from major banks like HSBC and BNP Paribas. Join us in telling them to withdraw their funding from the dangerous Jaitapur nuclear project!
