WHC 2022, Bangkok – Creating the Superstructure
The World Hindu Congress 2022, Bangkok, Thailand will be held on 4-6 November with the theme Jayasya Aayatnam Dharmah, meaning “Dharma, the Abode of Victory”. Seven parallel thematic conferences to articulate the values, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of Hindus in all its vibrance and glory will constitute this WHC. The conferences will provide space to discuss and deliberate upon the opportunities and challenges facing Hindus across the world and how to address them valiantly. These conferences will also focus on areas of strategic importance to Hindus and provide avenues for collaboration among Hindu leaders, activists and thinkers for the Hindu resurgence.
WHC 2022 will provide opportunities for Hindus to network, exchange ideas, work confidently and model their future course of action. Overall, WHC 2022 shall make us feel that grand pride of being a Hindu and shore up our mind to take up our duties and responsibilities towards our Hindu Dharma fearlessly.
Bharat and Southeast Asia share common Dharmic and cultural values that find expression in language, arts, architecture and tradition. Magnificent symbols of a shared heritage can be seen in Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram (Thailand), Angkor Wat and Phnom Kulen (Cambodia), Prambanan and Borobudur (Indonesia), Bagan (Myanmar), Kedaram (Malaysia), Cham Temple, Mỹ Sơn (Vietnam) and Vat Phou (Laos).
Hindus are a 1.2 billion strong community, comprising 16% of the world’s population with presence in around 200 countries. Across the world, we are the leaders and catalysts in all spheres of human endeavour – business, economy, education, governance, media, technology and culture. As a civilisation, we have always aspired for a Dharmic world which is prosperous, just and peaceful. However, such aspirations can only be realised if the Hindu leadership – spread across nations, societies and cultures – comes together to organise and combine its energies for global welfare. The World Hindu Congress (WHC) is the only global platform where this translates into reality.
Thus, the WHC is a continuation of the quintessential and original yajnya (self-sacrifice) for the greater interest for the Hindu society. Its purposefulness and comprehensiveness enables Hindus to come together consistently on a shared platform for a shared purpose inspired by shared values.
The following seven conferences are proposed to be held:
- World Hindu Economic Forum
- Hindu Educational Conference
- Hindu Youth Conference
- Hindu Women Conference
- Hindu Political Conference
- Hindu Media Conference
- Hindu Organisations Conference
The findings of each Conference will be presented to the Congress as a whole, where the entire Congress’ delegates will have an opportunity to critically examine the work of the Conference and offer their input as well. After the conclusion of the Congress, the individual organizations that conducted each of the conferences will be responsible for monitoring and assisting the implementation of the findings of each conference, and will report at the next Congress on the progress made.
All Hindu organisations, associations and institutions are encouraged to participate and are most welcome to become partners in WHC 2022. For any queries, please contact us at [email protected]
