When is Supreme Master Ching Hai Day? Well, there are two, one is on February 22, which is coming up, and the other is on October 25. The first one, October 25, was established in 1993 by the former Mayor Frank F. Fasi of the City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. “We don't do this very often. But distinguished citizens of the world, who have an impact on the lives of so many people living on this earth. From the city and county of Honolulu appointment of honorary citizenship, Supreme Master Ching Hai is hereby proclaimed from this day forth an honorary citizen of the city and County of Honolulu, in recognition of outstanding character achievement and Aloha spirit. And the last award, award of merit, this award of merit is issued to the Supreme Master Ching Hai for Her efforts toward international peace and the relief of suffering. Signed by the Mayor of the City and County of Honolulu. I was very, very impressed with this young lady because She exemplifies what we call the concept of the brotherhood of man in the Christian religion. She exemplifies the Aloha spirit, of Hawaiians. Aloha spirit is the same thing - I am my brother's and sister's keeper.” The second Supreme Master Ching Hai Day was named a couple of months after. The US states of Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin also recognized Master’s contributions to the world. The US government was so wise to confer such high honors to Supreme Master Ching Hai. For those who do good, every day is Supreme Master Ching Hai Day! Let’s hear Master’s words on this. “The Ching Hai Day is not only my day. It’s your day. It’s everyone’s day. ‘Ching Hai’ is actually not just my name. It’s a name given, and it symbolizes the Pure Ocean of Love. That is in your heart, in everyone’s heart, in all beings’ hearts. And you can see that through some of our animal shows. You can see how animals, they treat humans with utmost love, devotion, and help, assistance, as much as they can, whenever they have a chance to do it. And they also treat each other kindly, lovingly, charitably. So these are all members of Ching Hai Day.” Indeed, all beings who do good deeds celebrate Supreme Master Ching Hai Day. Even the smallest action, when done with a pure and selfless heart, is the greatest gift we can share with the world. We can do this all year long.
