Speech from Ida Pedanda Gde Ketut Sebali Tianyar Arimbawa
Chairman Board Adviser

ida Pedanda Sebali TianyarOn behalf of the WHP Working Committee, I would like to extend a very hearty welcome to all of you honoured guests and  fellow brothers, and may you experience the warm friendship of the Balinese people. Some of you have attended WHS I and some of you have come to Bali for the first time. I Sincerely hope that we can get together to declare formerly the creation or formation of WHP and WHC.

 One year ago, in my opening address, I mentioned a line taken from the book by Charles Dickens which goes like this …….. it is the worst of times, it is the best of times.

 In the turbulence of the world which we witness today, there is extreme cruelty and fanaticism where people are forced to convert to other religious. This is a frightening thing because the harmony and unity of the Hindus in particular and people in general, world wide,  is critical. Therefore our meeting today has a very significant meaning. We in Bali feel this a great deal because we are a minority in a vast country of other major religions. This is why we have created this forum where we can meet and discuss various issues regarding our total welfare and safely for people Bali in particular, and the world in general.

Moreover, what happens to Hindus around the world also very much affects us in Bali. We have therefore chosen the theme LOKASAMGRAHA as stated in the Bhagawad Gita ( 3, 20 – 25). Prof. Radhakrishnan had said : LOKASAMGRAHA MEANS WORLD MAINTENANCE. LOKASAMGRAHA STANDS  FOR THE UNITY OF THE WORLD, THE INTERCONNECTION OF SOCIETY of all backgrounds on earth.

I once again wish you all success in all the forth coming conference and I hope you will enjoy your stay in Bali. Thank you.
