Preface to the International I-Ching Conference
President Hsu yung-chang, the International Baccalaureate University
First of all, we want to express our deepest gratitude to the contributors and supporters who have helped us to hold this Five International I-Ching g Conference in 2016.DEC thanks should go to to the President Hong of Yu Fu International Co., the evaluation committee of the international I-Ching papers, and other distinguished guests who have unstintingly devoted their time and efforts to supporting this conference. We also appreciate the participation of all the I-Ching experts and academic scholars who have come from all over the world to contribute their talents and share their views on the latest research of I-Ching studies.
The conference will provide ample opportunities for the participants to have closer interaction with the international I-Ching experts. For those coming to the conference for the first time, they can exchange thoughts and discuss matters with the other members so as to enhance their understanding towards Yin Jin and life.
In unison with the international conference, there is the publication of the two invaluable books— the ‘Catalog of the Renown I-Ching Experts’ and the ‘Collection of the conference papers’. In addition, the certification process will give credits to those who are very qualified in their own specific field as well as promoting the dissemination of knowledge. Overall, the conference serves as the means with which to help the participants understand the principle of ‘searching for the ultimate reason and attaining the very truth of one’s nature’ in I-Ching, and we hope that they can have more exchanges with the other international guests. Finally, I do hope that the event proves to be a positive experience for you all. Thank you and have a great day.
