Dear guests, artists, artistic creators, and performing artists from all sectors of society, welcome to the second International Artist Day celebration held in Formosa (Taiwan) in 2019 entitled “Spinning the Light of Art.” We are also honored that Supreme Master Ching Hai, who launched the International Artist Day, will be holding a conference with us to celebrate art and enjoy a touching experience of art. We look forward to having Her with us. We are joined here today by many distinguished guests. While we’re preparing for our conference with Master, let’s welcome the first performance today by the Dili Elementary School choir from Nantou. They will bring us “The Bunun Music Medley” describing the simple and natural lifestyle of the Formosan (Taiwanese) indigenous people with their heavenly vocals. We would now like to invite our noble guests to come on the stage to say a few words. First, we invite our former Vice President Annette Lu Hsiu-lien to speak to us. “We have just enjoyed a performance by our indigenous children. Their innocent and lively dance made me forget myself and my age. I think art can be an elevating and fascinating experience. That’s truly a manifestation of our national soul! I envy our artist friends very much.” “My wish for our artist friends is to have the courage to interact with the politicians. If our politicians are equipped with the ethics of the religious practitioners and the ideas of the artists, perhaps our world will be more peaceful and more beautiful. I also hope that, in your artistic creation, like Supreme Master Ching Hai, you will focus your thoughts on Heaven and Earth, respect Heaven, cherish our Earth, and love all beings.” Next, let us invite Taipei City Councilor Lo Chih-Chiang to say a few words. “Scientists seek the truth; politicians seek righteousness; artists seek beauty. When these three values converge, the world will become a better place.”
