Message from Chairman


“Let’s convert myself first, in order to convert the flow of the world.”


Thank you very much indeed for your support and cooperation accorded to our organization from time to time.


The modern society we live now in the 21st century is still now confronted with serious problems on global scale. There exists no one of learned experts who do not harbora sense of the crisis. It is a reality that human society came to a sheer deadlock.


I am sure such human society must be composed of each of human beings. No matter what warning would be made by some of the learned experts concerning the problems on a global scale, these will never assume a sense of reality to solving the problems, unless each one of the society tackles with those as a matter of fact. To make the situation further serious we, who are expected to play the leading role of solving the problems, are at the mercy of daily business, spending the present time, to which we cannot take any measures to rectify.


In the midst of such vicious circle, we at RBA International stood up, declaring “Let’s change a human being in order to change the current of the world”, and then have long conducted diverse activities, advocating “Let’s convert myself first, in order to convert all other people”.


A part of the goal common in the activities of RBA International is to recall “goodwill that lies unexploited under the heart of each of human being”, and to bring “the actions towards concrete contributions”. The second part of the goal is “to expand the actions of such concrete contributions to a global scale”.


Before closing, the RBA International academic activities are under full way, aiming not only to theoretically support the grassroots movements by RBA International, but also to further accelerate the activities. This year, too, we will continue to contribute to the peace of world by rotating both wheels of grassroots activities and the academic activities. Let me conclude the preface by entreating your sincere understanding and support for the RBA International activities.
