When we think about the impact of pollution on man, we can easily figure out its impact on our body and on our health. Few of us know that some kinds of pollution also severely impact our Astral. The consequence of which is even more disastrous than those on our health and body. This article is the teaching of Prof. Dich-Van Van Quang Buddha on the so-called civilisation on Earth and the pollution it causes to our spiritual development.
Mankind on Earth is poisoning the Astral man (or Astral) inside us with materialism. It means being absorbed in pursuing materials while ignoring Spirit. As a result, the Astral man is very weak. On the contrary, the Body is getting distinctively stronger. Sadly, many people on Earth still understand that there is only Material but no Spirit. On that basis, they think that the Astral man inside the body is just gossip and superstition. What a harmful thinking! People of past generations understood this more correctly than we do today.
What are Mankind poisoning the Astral with?
With money, atomic reaction, pollution and narcotic drugs.
1) Money: is the worst thing in man’s society on Earth. It is greed for money that makes men become despicable, scrambling from each other, killing and robbing just for money; endless wars are just for occupation of natural resources (that generate money); embezzlement and corruption are for money, dumping un-processed wastes into rivers and seas is also for money. In short, money poisons people and makes them become brutal and merciless. It is the selfish extreme materialism that leads mankind to move backward.
2) Atomic reaction is a man’s invention that serves more for war rather than for social progress. Though many atomic power plants have been sprung up but mankind is gradually eliminating them, whilst development of atomic bomb, nuclear war head missile is still a competition between many countries. For what? For destroying each other, isn’t it? Killing each other is for money, for lumbering materialism. In accordance with the teaching of Shakyamuni LANTIG Buddha, about 14,500 years ago mankind on Earth already had similar civilisation as of today, but then atomic wars killed almost all of men on Earth, destroyed every civilisation at that time. Earth men had to start from the beginning until it reached the present civilisation, just once again to face with the threat of nuclear war in the immediate. So for how long does atomic reaction still make mankind move backward? That is the real value of atomic reaction! The mass media and television are dominated with inciting wars, even preparing for wars among stars?! So are online games. Education of love and compassion is rarely cared for.
3) Pollution is a man-killing tool for many incarnations. Pollution includes: air pollution, food pollution, water pollution, noise pollution, light pollutions, colour pollution etc.
We look at each of them one by one below:
Air pollution: everyone knows that people will die if stop breathing for two minutes. Hence, air for breathing is so important. But mankind is disposing into space so much gas waste. The more developed the science the more gas waste is dumped into space. The volume of CO2 emitted on Earth now has reached 56 trillion cubic meters per year. There are all kinds of toxic gases emitted from factory chimneys and internal combustion engines all over the planet: CO, SO2, CO2, NOx, Pb, CH4, etc. along with all kind of dusts thrown into the air. All are because of industry development. The more development the more death because of waste! There is not only pollution close to Earth surface but science also polluted universal space. Wastes produced by cosmos science are countless. So do you think that the more developed the science the more pollution it causes?
Food pollution: it is too obvious. Every day Earth men encounter foods infected with toxic chemicals, stale foods, out of date foods, fruits soaked in chemicals, food overdosed with growth supplements, so is animal meat. There are plenty of fake goods, counterfeit medicine, chemical and colouring substance contaminated drinking water etc. All happened because of greed for money. Even some country has an industry specialized in making fake goods for export. If not for money, what is it for?
Water pollution: everyone knows that men will be exhausted without water for a few days. Nevertheless, they are dumping into rivers, seas and lakes with countless polluted waste water causing pollution to not only surface water but also underground water, soil, plants and animals. The more the industry develops the more plants and factories dispose waste water, dust and gas. Now a day, disposing waste that kills a river is taken for granted as every day story. Does it mean that the more the science develops the more it poisons human race?
Noise pollution: Cities across the Earth are noisy because the cramped crowd of people involving in traffic. Then guns, bombs and mines in wars. Even music is heavily loaded with weird discotheque sounds. Young people don’t like rhythmic music of natural sounds but run after noisy jolting discotheque music. Few people know that noise pollution poisons our Astral, i.e. the Astral man living with us from one incarnation to another. So noise pollution not only effects life in this incarnation but also some future ones without knowing until when it can be completely cleansed.
Colour pollution: Dazzling and glaring colour is typical in using colour of Earth men. Why Troi created plants with green colour and soil to grow trees with light brown colour whilst men do not follow nature but want glaring colour like red, white, black, dark yellow, purple etc? Each man has aura of distinctive colour, but rarely anyone knows how to choose colour for their clothes, vehicles, house walls to match their body’s aura colour. Colour pollution caused by the passion for glaring colours which poisons the kind-hearted mind of man. Its affect can last for a few incarnations.
Light pollution: Earth men also use glaring and dazzling light, rarely uses soft light. Just like colour pollution, light pollution poisons the Astral for several incarnations.
4) Narcotic drugs (opium, heroin, cocaine etc) are poisoning the Astral and body of Rough man, making them decayed and weak, making life no longer meaningful, and bringing disaster to mankind. The deep detriment of drugs is that it damages the Astral, making it so weak that it will take several incarnations to overcome this consequence.
All of the above-mentioned man-made pollutions are causing our body withered, our gene degraded, the Astral man inside us weakened. A withered body can be replaced in less than 100 years, but the damaged gene causes the next generation weaker than the previous one. The weak Astral man will take several incarnations to recover without any certainty.
It is man-made money, atomic reaction, pollution and narcotic drugs that are poisoning themselves. This is the consequence of technological development to pursue selfish materialism. This is contrary to the Law of Spirit of Troi. If this has not been braked, then sooner or later these things will lead to the destruction of mankind.
Note: on other planets with higher civilisation than Earth, Rough man caused much less pollution.
At the present time on Earth, in the 21st (XXI) century, the science technology in Western countries, European and North American countries is surpassing the Eastern countries, i.e. Asian and Southeast Asian countries. The Western world is proud of having a higher civilisation, and is considering itself as the leader of human civilisation. But it is only material civilisation, and is backward, far behind the spiritual civilisation of the East. Based on the matter of the Law of Troi providing that man is obliged to develop Spirituality (see here), it is not so sure in the near future, between the civilisations of these two lands of the Earth, which one will be better. Material civilisation can be learnt from friends, even to steal friend’s know-how to rise in several centuries, but it is not possible to do so with spiritual civilisation. It requires turning the mind into believing in the Existence of Universe (see here), into Troi, Buddhas, Emperors, into Three Daos (see here), from which to practice the mind to detach from a Material Life toward a Spiritual Life. This cannot be done in a few hundred years. Meanwhile, Eastern countries have been persisting this for thousands of years, and they have had a fairly high spiritual civilisation. Who will lead the world after a few hundred years? That is the question that Western countries have to find the answer. In life, running ahead in a race but then falling behind often happens.
Right here, we see clearly the image of Western countries lagging behind the Eastern countries in the near future. At this point of time, more than ever before, the Western countries need to be aware of this, turn around, abandon all the races to develop mediocre material science, and return to the spiritual civilisation. It is the intention of Troi that was stipulated in law – Law of Spirit (see here). The reality is that Western countries are very backward in this matter; let alone being very conservative, arrogant, even considering this as fabled.
Let’s get rid of the development of atomic bombs, nuclear-armed missiles, atomic-missile submarines that are threatening to destroy humans. It is also necessary to immediately eliminate the industries causing the pollution of the air, soil and water and poisoning man’s living environment. The more civilised the country, the more it should uphold the love for mankind, eliminate all greed, rivalry, jealousy of each other, humbly learn and open arms of compassion for the peoples of the East who are better than themselves in the field of Spirituality.
"There are physical and invisible (subtle) spaces co-existing in this universe"
"There are Rough men living in the physical space and Astral men living in the invisible space. The Astral men are a lot more capable than the Rough men"
"The big mistake of mankind (Rough men) so far is we are not willing to cooperate with the invisible space"
