It’s not enough that you wear the monk’s or nun’s robe and just every day doing some not very useful rituals, taking donations, having a comfortable church or temple to live in, and being revered by the faithful. You must turn around. Be vegan. No more meat. No more animal products. Otherwise, you cannot escape hell. In my honor, in the name of God, I tell you the truth like that.
Oh! Forgot. I want to say something. You see, in this story, the ghost even told, and truthfully, that most people who die, suffer in hell. Because very rare we have some virtuous and morally uncorrupted person. (Yes, Master.) And to eat meat and all that is already a sin, already sinful and already punishable by law, the Universal law.
I really want to plead with all the religious leaders. You must make a good example. You must be a vegan, now. Then God will forgive. Otherwise, truly, you will go to hell. I mean it. Like everyone else, if you continue to eat meat, drink wine, and even just to eat meat, not drink wine, it’s already sinful enough to be punished in hell for a long, long, long, long time.
We can put the Heartline, or the talk of the sister from China, about hell.
“I can attest that when Master says, ‘Those who eat meat will go to hell,’ that is the absolute truth. One midnight, as I was wrapping up my meditation session, I received a message from my inner Master, saying: ‘You should pay a visit to hell to learn the work of a Bodhisattva and help the beings there.’ My inner Master then transported me to hell. Her Supreme Power protected me from the hellfires, which would have scorched a practitioner of my level. It also freed me of fear. I was escorted to one of the hells by Earth Store Bodhisattva. Here, the wrongdoers were forced to run as fast as they could on a huge spinning black iron wheel, which resembled a waterwheel. The moment they failed to keep up with the speed of the wheel, they would fall into a cauldron of boiling soup on a roaring fire and get cooked to smithereens.
Following Master’s instructions, I recited the Five Holy Names and the Gift of the Seventh Level. As I did so, Master’s immense power enabled those beings to free themselves from the wheel. They then knelt in front of me. I asked them: ‘How did you fall into this hell?’ They said: ‘In our previous life, we ate large amounts of flesh of hunted animals and captured fish. They experienced great terror when they were hunted. They tried to flee, but there was no escape. They were captured, slaughtered, and cooked to mush in a pot. As a consequence of eating their flesh, we fell into hell’s cauldron, having to flee and be cooked repeatedly.’ I explained to them: ‘The karmic toll of meat-eating is extremely heavy. People only dare to eat meat because they don’t know what awaits them.’ I exhorted them to be sure to adopt a vegan lifestyle and do good deeds in their next incarnation. They then followed Master out of hell, on the path to a new life. Yet, even as I spoke, I could see many meat-eaters arrive from above, falling one after another into hell, all stark naked. Alas, as the scriptures say: ‘Hell shall never be empty.’
Then, I felt a twinge in my left arm. I looked down and saw that my left sleeve had blown up to an enormous size. Innumerable hell beings were tucked in the sleeve to be rescued from hell. As it turns out, hell beings can shrink and be rescued that way. Amazed, I reveled in the magnanimity and boundless compassion of Master and Earth Store Bodhisattva, who extend Their help to the suffering sentient beings. In the next instant, I was back in hell singing praises of the two great Saints. I had only uttered a few words of praise when I heard a series of startlingly loud clangs. Lo and behold, it was the sound of the iron walls of several adjacent hell chambers crumbling under the power of exaltation of the Saints! At the same time, a pure, effervescent spring gushed forth from the dark ground of hell, forming a lotus pond. Countless gold and white lotuses grew in the pond and bloomed instantaneously. The lotus flowers grew larger and larger, glowing in beautiful splendor. Even golden lotuses can bloom in hell, under the infinite power and merit of our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai and Earth Store Bodhisattva. Their greatness is truly beyond human comprehension!”
It’s not enough that you wear the monk’s or nun’s robe and just every day doing some not very useful rituals, taking donations, having a comfortable church or temple to live in, and being revered by the faithful. You must turn around. Be vegan. No more meat. No more animal products. Otherwise, you cannot escape hell. In my honor, in the name of God, I tell you the truth like that. Even if you feel offended, even if I risk my safety to tell you, the leaders of religions, I have to tell you, in the name of God. It’s not enough just to learn some ritual by heart and just repeat what is in the Bible or the sutra.
People trust you to lead them to the righteous way. Not only you have to be vegan, you must also advise your followers, the faithful, to do the same. Must be vegan.
No more killing, indirectly, the poor, innocent animals that God made. The animals are also God’s children, and shall not be destroyed. The animals are helpers of humankind. In the Bible it even says all that: “Ask the birds, they will show you. Ask the fish, they will instruct you. Ask the animals, they will tell you. They will advise you.” So they are some beings to be respected, to be loved, at least to be friendly with. It’s not for us to eat, to torture, in such a barbarous way.
And if you eat them, these torturously killed meats, you condone this practice and you are an accomplice. I am telling you as a friend, as a faithful. As a person who respects, loves God. As a person who loves human beings and animals. As a person who cries every day and night, for their suffering.
I’m not spending idle time talking to you like this. I must warn you that hells are awaiting you if you don’t turn around now and stop eating meat of the innocent animals. We − even no priests, even ordinary people – we humans, a humane human, should never enjoy at the cost of suffering of any others. God says, “Thou shall not kill.” And that never fails. That law of the Universe is everywhere, correct and just. No one can escape that. “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Just because you don’t see the animal suffer, just because you don’t kill the animal, doesn’t mean you don’t partake in the sin thereof.
People trust you. You must advise them to go the compassionate way, the way Jesus walked, the way the Buddha taught, the way Guru Nanak Dev Ji showed to us, the way Prophet Muhammad, peace be on Him, taught us. All the Masters said the same. Lord Mahavira did not even want to eat, all the fruits even. And we are allowed to eat fruits and vegetables, and in plenty. We are not short of food, of nutrition. We should not kill just to enjoy. That is wicked. That is against God. That’s against your mission, against the robe that you are wearing, which is the holy robe, the representative of holiness, of Heavens, of God. You have to live the way our Masters taught us, like Lord Jesus, Lord Buddha, Lord Mahavira, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the Prophet Muhammad, peace be on Him, the Prophet Baháʼu’'lláh etc., etc.
I have no more tears to show you. I cannot take out my heart to show you how sincere I am, and how broken it has been, over and over again, because of the suffering of humans and animals. The suffering of animals affects humans and thus humans also suffer.
You are the representative of Heaven. You’re supposed to walk the way of Heaven, of compassion, of love, of benevolence, of mercy. Then all that will come to you, the day you leave this world, the day you discard your robe to go back to Heaven. Otherwise, you go to hell, and I guarantee that. You know I mean it, and you know it is true. So U-turn now. I wish you the best, in God’s Mercy and Love. And I love you, all of you. Please, U-turn. Thank you.
OK. Thank you, all of you, for helping in this mission to save the animals, (Thank You, Master.) thus save the world as well, save humans from this bad karma. Because every time I saw them suffering on TV, I cannot help crying my heart out. Thank you really, from my heart. God bless you. (Thank You, Master.) (We love You, Master.)
I really want to talk to you every day, or read to you every day to refresh your practice and to encourage you to go on, continue with the hard job and to have continuous faith in God. But it’s not always possible. So we do when we can. (Yes, Master. Thank You, Master.) I just would love to. I just would love to, just that we all have work to do, and also it’s not always favorable to talk. (Yes, Master.) (Understand.)
So now, I wave goodbye. (Bye-bye, Master.) Love you forever. (We love You, Master.) Thank you to you, also, that you are good kids. (Thank You, Master.) See you next time. (God Bless You.) (See You, Master.) Love you. (We love You, Master.)
