The Telegram of Congratulations
March 13, 2012
Dear Respected Robert B. Adams:
It is a great pleasure and honor for me to take this opportunity to extend my deepest respect, through you and your friends, to Mr. L. Ron Hubbard and my best wishes to Scientology while celebrating Mr. L. Ron Hubbard’s 101st Birthday.
In our Oriental culture, a relationship of destiny among diverse peoples is highly regarded. About 20 years ago, I received the book Dianetics, Mr L. Ron Hubbard’s masterpiece. At that time I was scarcely aware of the potential importance of the book. Fortunately, 20 years later, when I visited the L. Ron. Hubbard Life Exhibition in Los Angeles this past February, suddenly I realized that the philosophy and the true meaning of life elaborated in this book was so profound and incisive and it appears to resonate deeply with oriental philosophy upon which Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism have traditionally been based. In another words, it is an exploration of spiritual refinement and the ultimate pursuit of the mystery of life through the cultivation of consciousness and inspiration.
Together we are facing an unstable world as we suffer the consequences of human behavior and our continuous intrusion on nature the last thousand years. It is urgently important that we realize that the pursuit of happiness through the outside world is a fruitless endeavor. At this very moment, the only way to save our human physical body from suffering is through enlightenment of human wisdom and through the pursuit of freedom of our heart and soul.
We hope the philosophy and worldview of your nation afar will continuously flourish and develop side by side and simultaneously with the Chinese culture as together we work towards the glorified and sacred mission of achieving a future for all human beings free from all worries and anguish.
Best high regards,
Executive Vice Chairman, Asian Pacific Exchange & Cooperation Foundation
