Since establishing the Taiwanese-American Religious Study Association, Southern California (TARSA-SC) in 2009, we have received strong support from Taiwanese-Americans all over the United States and across the globe. To commemorate TARSA-SC’s 5th anniversary, we hosted a special conference entitled, “Say Yes to Life！Searching for the Meaning of Life” on October 25, 2014, at the Orange County Conference Center. We are grateful to the experts who came and shared their thoughts on the meaning of life from scientific, philosophical and religious perspectives. It was the most successful and meaningful event in TARSA-SC’s history.
To preserve the contents of the conference, and to share them with future generations, the association decided to publish a special issue of the conference proceedings in both English and Hanji. I appreciate all the speakers’ cooperation in accomplishing this task. These proceedings also include the accompanying slides from all the presentations.
I am grateful for the strong support and encouragement of our board members, advisors, members and friends who made this conference possible. I especially wish to acknowledge the tireless support of Mrs. Anna Huang and Mrs. Grace Yeh who help with the details behind the association’s activities. I also wish to thank Mrs. Carol Yeh-Sergi for her editorial support.
Most importantly, I wish to thank our members who continue to support TARSA-SC and our mission of interfaith understanding and dialogue.
