Proclamation by Bruce Rauner, Governor of Illinois, declaring Sept 11, 2018 as SWAMI VIVEKANANDA DAY in Illinois
We would like to thank all delegates, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, organizers and Hindus across the world for making WHC 2018 a grand success!
WHC 2018 was attended by 2,500 Hindus from 60 countries. It was graced by 220 speakers, including several high-achievers and experts from the world of economy, education, politics, social work, media, and blessed by revered spiritual & religious heads. But, most of all, it was the vibrant energy of the delegates traveling from far & wide and their cross-domain networking that made WHC 2018 such a unique & enriching event. It was indeed a fitting tribute to the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s historic address to the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago.
Dhanyavaad for your support and encouragement. It is this engagement of the global Hindu community that allows WHC to act as a global platform for Hindus to connect, share ideas, inspire one another, and impact the common good.
The theme of WHC 2018 was Sumantrite Suvikrante – Think Collectively, Achieve Valiantly. The next goal before us is to follow through on the deliberations and action items identified during the Congress, and we look forward to everyone’s continued engagement for the same. Please share your feedback and ideas by sending an email to email@example.com so that we can take WHC to even greater heights in WHC 2022@Bangkok. If there is any specific role in which you would like to contribute to further WHC’s goals, please do let us know unhesitatingly.
We have started work to collate & publish the speaker presentations & WHC 2018 conference report on the WHC website (www.worldhinducongress.org). The recorded videos of the conference sessions will also be uploaded on our official YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/WorldHinduCongress) which will be available to all for viewing.
Once again, thank you!
