Supreme Master Ching Hai
February 28, 2008 - Austria

MASTER: Suppose you know something is poisonous to your children; will you deliberately give it to them, to harm them? No! So now all the evidence points out that meat is also poisonous and alcohol is bad. Just ban them outright. There’s no more discussion.
