In May 16,1992 Buddha’s Light International Association World Headquarters was founded and held by the first BLIA World Headquarters General Conference in Los Angeles, USA. With this conference, members from Europe, the United States, Asia, Africa and Australia have gathered together, and it became an important chapter in Buddha History.
The first conference theme “Joy and Harmony” was written by the founder of BLIA, Master Hsing Yun. He hoped that BLIA will share the joy and harmony all across the world. Over the years, the conference was not only held in Taiwan but also held in the USA, Canada, Australia, France, Hong Kong and Japan.
Since year 2002, the President of BLIA, Master Hsing Yun had invited all the representatives from all over the world to participate the conference in Taiwan every two years. He expects that all the 60 members from the whole world will learn how to share and communicate in order to let the world know more about Taiwan.
