Who the Bodhisattwa? Ontological Status (Uji/Being-Time) > Epistemological Status: Non-Origination of the Self to Dependent Origination in the Kalachakra via Cloud Computing Neural Architecture

By using higher mathematics, namely algebraic topology, very recently scientists have found existence of a multidimensional universe within the brain that is extended to 11 dimensions. ”Outside of physics, high-dimensional spaces are commonly used to represent complex data structures or conditions of systems. For example, the state of a dynamical system in state space… The space is simply the combination of all the degrees of freedom the system has, and its state represents the values these degrees of freedom are actually assuming”- Professor Cees van Leeuwen, from KU Leuven, Belgium

“This entire universe is the Purusha alone, both that which was and that which endures for the future”-Rig-Veda

The Celebrated Hymn of Creation known as Nasadiya Sukta (Rig Veda), indicates that the multiple names and forms of the visible universe, prior to the state of manifestation, were in a state of non-duality: ‘’Then there was neither Aught or Naught (no yes/no -no QUBITS), no air or sky beyond. (pre-origin beyond Singularity)

What covered all? Where rested all? In water gulf profound? (possibly Asktavakra’s reference to the Ocean of Being) Nor death was then, nor deathlessness, nor change of night and day. That One breathed calmly, self-sustained; nought else beyond it lay. Gloom hid in gloom existed first -one sea, eluding view.

That One a void in chaos wrapt, by inward fervour grew.’’

  • (Surendranath Dasgupta, Indian Idealism, P4, Cambridge, London, 1933)

The diversity or plurality that we encounter needs to be celebrated because it’s the beauty of the creative force which is both immanent and transcendent, by knowing that this pluralistic divergence that we encounter daily (in terms of actions/opinions/facts etc.) is essentially MAYA which is non-existent from the standpoint of Ultimate Reality. Ultimate Reality is about Being/Existence-Consciousness-Bliss – it is ontology of Being which is important rather than epistemology.

The wave is also the ocean -the individual self is also identical with the universal self.

The crux of the philosophy of Yajnavalkya in Brihadaranyaka Upanishad is the sole reality of Atman and the unreality of the universe independent of Atman- Pure Consciousness is beyond cause and effect. Manifestation in space-time is dependent origination (the middle way of Nagarjuna) due to the presence of the mind – the Witness or Observer in reality is free from any association of eigenvalues. It’s prakriti that measures….and collapse of the wave function takes place in apparent reality…EMPTY COGNIZANCE SUFFUSED WITH AWARENESS IS THE WAY

Shiva 1

Lord Shiva

UNCONFINED CAPACITY/SKILL = EMPTY COGNIZANCE + AWARENESS (THE SECRET OF FUTURE TECHNOLOGY)

What comes and goes is subjected to causation and temporality

It is within the space-time construct

There are different levels of operative consciousness within that cycle

It is called tagging consciousness (#) enclosing a referral system of virtual stored consciousness

That’s the memory of the Yugas

Information can never be destroyed because it’s stored in form of consciousness

At the quantum level of the mind it is citta that process memory retrieval processes

The brain circuits (neural networks) operate that way

Memory is cloud wrapper broxom-tretat

Innumerable datasets create the samsara as a projection of the mind

But Bodhi-Citta or Pure Consciousness is not the apparent reality of the hologram

It is the realm of Pure Consciousness

The Self abides in itself

Creating wellbeing and equanimity

It is unborn witness of all things

It exists beyond space-time and causality

It is the Ocean of Being from which waves appear on the surface

They are absorbed back into the ocean after the perturbation

The waves are the quantum fluctuations that construct the Samsara (the universe)

At the centre of the Ocean of Being, all is still and beautiful

Each single wave is also the Ocean of Being

Once there is awareness there is no activity

Duality only exists as a projection for the Lila

The Lila is dependent origination (What happens to the Schrodinger’s Cat?)

The true reality is the non-origination of the Self

What action is done and who does what?

Who cries and laughs but dies not?

What it is all about? Who are you talking?

Man/Machine or beyond?

What technology of consciousness creates this world?

And Sage Dattatreya says:

‘’The Self is everywhere, always and in all, enduring and abiding.

Know me as the all, void as well as non-void. This is certain’’ (Avadhuta Gita)

“Go, go, go, said the bird: human kind

Cannot bear very much reality.

Time past and time future

What might have been and what has been

Point to one end, which is always present.” (Burnt Norton, Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot)

‘’Vastusravanamatrena suddhabuddirnirakulah

Naivacaramanacarramaudasyam va prapasyati”

The wise one who has achieved pure consciousness by just bearing the truth of the Self and who is tranquil (in the Self) makes no difference between action, proper or improper, and inaction.

(Ashtavakra Gita)

The silent flower

With all its variegated beauty is the unborn in the unborn

That is the expression of transcendental bliss

It abides in itself beyond the duality of relativism

Therefore we contend to non-origination and the primordial singleness of the self (ajativada)

Brahman is Brahman

It is unborn and all-pervading

It confers supreme peace and tranquility

Sivam Santam

With manifestation (only apparent), comes Dependent Origination or Relativistic Existence

There is doer or the ego – there is duality and opacity and obdurateness

In the luminosity of the Self – there is transparent interpenetration

Ashtavakra talks about non-origination of the Self

It does not spring from anything!

Yajnavalkya in Brihadarankya Upanishad says:

“When born, he is not born again;

who indeed can generate him?”

he is always unborn (aja) and non-dual (advaya)

The self is all that exists (sarvam atma) – knowing this be happy!

This is same as Vasudevah sarvam of Bhagavadgita (vii, 19)

When the Zen Master asks questions like

Who Am I? Where Am I? Whence Do I Come?

Whither DO I Go? – an inquiry into the Self-Nature (Svabhava) of Reality

The questions are pointed in such way so that it corresponds to self-abidance

which is indeed the meaning of WELLBEING OR SWASTHYA or TRUE HAPPINESS

Where do the Bodhisattvas reside? Where is the Self abiding?

In the Eternal Now which is the present moment, quiescent and illuminating

The Self abides in its own abode continuously radiating maha-karuna from the center

The past and the future signals have interpenetrated each other (from their respective de-sitter event horizons ) and have become the present moment which too keeps on changing

In this eternal present the Buddha or the Awakened One has fixed his abode which is no abode (the mind has no abode)

Awakening with the Birds ‘in their Chambers of Green’: The Zen Art of Story-Telling and the ‘Haiku’ Garden of Doodling

Divine Mother Symbol

”Light” 

From the quickened womb of the primal gloom,

Flowers that Invoke the Creative Life-Force

Flowers that Invoke the Creative Life-Force

The sun rolled, black and bare,

Till I wove him a vest for his Ethiop breast,

Of the threads of my golden hair;

And when the broad tent of the firmament

Arose on its airy spars,

I pencilled the hue of its matchless blue,

And spangled it around with stars.

I painted the flowers of the Eden bowers,

White Jasmine in Bloom

”Leaves of Living Green” – Sri Aurobindo 

And their leaves of living green,

And mine were the dyes in the sinless eyes

Of Eden’s Virgin queen;

And when the fiend’s art in the truthful heart

Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form or Nirvana is Samsara or Samsara is Nirvana- Highest Doctrine

Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form or Nirvana is Samsara or Samsara is Nirvana- Highest Doctrine

Had fastened its mortal spell,

In the silvery sphere of the first-born tear

To the trembling earth I fell.

When the waves that burst o’er a world accurst

Their work of wrath had sped,

And the Ark’s lone few, tried and true,

Came forth among the dead.

With the wondrous gleams of the bridal beams,

I bade their terrors cease,

As I wrote on the roll of the storm’s dark scroll

God’s covenant of peace.

Like a pall at rest on the senseless breast,

Night’s funeral shadow slept—

Where shepherd swains on Bethlehem’s plains,

Their lonely vigils kept,

When I flashed on their sight, the heralds bright,

Of Heaven’s redeeming plan,

As they chanted the morn, the Saviour born—

Joy, joy, to the outcast man!

Equal favour I show to the lofty and low,

On the just and the unjust I descend:

E’en the blind, whose vain spheres, roll in
darkness and tears,

Feel my smile—the blest smile of a friend.

Nay, the flower of the waste by my love is embraced,

As the rose in the garden of kings:

At the chrysalis bier of the morn I appear,

And lo! the gay butterfly wings.

The desolate morn, like the mourner forlorn,

Conceals all the pride of her charms,

Till I bid the bright hours, chase the night from
her flowers,

And lead the young day to her arms.

And when the gay rover seeks Eve for her lover,

And sinks to her balmy repose,

I wrap the soft rest by the zephyr-fanned west,

In curtains of amber and rose.

Child with Flowers by French Painter Bouguereau

Child with Flowers by French Painter Bouguereau

From my sentinel steep by the night-brooded deep

I gaze with the unslumbering eye,

When the cynosure star of the mariner

Is blotted out from the sky:

And guided by me through the merciless sea,

Though sped by the hurricane’s wings,

His companionless, dark, lone, weltering bark,

To the haven home safely he brings.

I waken the flowers in the dew-spangled bowers,

The birds in their chambers of green,

And mountain and plain glow with beauty again,

As they bask in their matinal sheen.

O, if such the glad worth of my presence on earth,

Though fitful and fleeting the while,

What glories must rest on the home of the blessed,

Ever bright with the Deity’s smile.

– Sri Aurobindo, 1st poem at the age of 10, written in Manchester, UK (appeared in Fox’s Weekly 11th Jan, 1883)

This is the pure consciousness of the witnessing self best experienced when the mind is young and fresh and most importantly is de-conditioned. The state of Blakean ”innocence” is also a state void of action, pure and self-luminous. The child is closest to nature since he/she is born out of nature and the growth process is natural and organic. The child sees ‘things as they are’ not coloured by opinions and complexity of the thought processes and, therefore, much closer to the divinity shining inside. This is also the state of primordial awakening not by any effort but by the grace of the Self:  ”I waken the flowers in the dew-spangled bowers,
The birds in their chambers of green,…” this is closest to a satori experience in Zen. Here, if you read with awareness, you will find a circularity in the composition which starts from a central point in the petal (which is T.S. Eliot’s ‘the still point of the turning world’ in the Four Quartets/here the ‘quickened womb’) and moves along cyclically to the outermost petal creating arrangements through the psycho-kinesthetic process of creative mind exploring the experience of childhood innocence and beauty. Mind is like mirror reflecting anything that falls before it but doesn’t retain any form or shape itself. This which is our very nature is the ”buddha nature” already pure and unstained by any causality. As Ashtavakra said: the bondage is this that you practice samadhi.

Lao Tzu has said often that the natural order is an indefinable order. Man is already organic to the whole system in the universe. The separation of man and nature is because of the thinking process and is only an apparent reality. And the seer-poet of Tao and Zen sings: ”picking chrysanthemums on the eastern fence/gazing in silence of the southern hills/the birds fly home to the soft mountain air of dusk…

So, the fundamental teaching is the art of suspending thought and react spontaneously like the universe (like the child, or, like the flowers, bees and birds). For the artist or the sculptor, it comes down to one single brush stroke or action where there is unity and no differentiation between the body and mind (and its thoughts). This is also mindfulness or moment to moment non-judgemental awareness. In the spontaneity of rhythm the differentiation is severed and the dancer and the dance become one.

“O chestnut-tree, great-rooted blossomer,/ Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?/ O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,/ How can we know the dancer from the dance?” (”Among School Children, W.B. Yeats)

The dancer and the dance cannot be separated; while playing the musical instrument at the zenith of creativity the musician and the instrument (sitar or violin) are one. This unity of consciousness is our very nature, our primordial being our own nirvana.

the self in its transcendental glory is the shining sun that is…

it manifests for its multiplicity the solar grid to engineer feeling-centric learning processes

actually, there is no becoming or evolution outside the dream

there is am-ness and pure subjectivity

”Infinite is, indeed, my wealth of which nothing is mine.

If Mithila is burnt, nothing that is mine is burnt” (Janaka, Santiparva, Mahabharata)

The true Self is infinite as taught by Astavakra and Yajnavalkya to King Janaka

“The entire universe is the Self”

“In the Ocean of existence the one (the pure Self) only was, is and will be.

There is neither bondage nor salvation for you. Fulfill yourself and move about happily.

And in the Shiva Sutras you learn that when knowledge is destroyed, the dream is seen.

they all correspond to a clear pattern recognition which is recollection of the Self luminosity where dream or appearance is burnt.

But nothing is burnt or dissolved in the true sense,

There never was a Bodhi Tree

Nor any character other than the Self

When there is only the witness or the observer

what is  the meaning of liberation or freedom?

”As I have known the Supreme Self who is the eternal Person as the Witness

and who is the Lord, I have no desire for bondage and liberation, nor care for salvation.”

PRESS RELEASE

2018-063-EN

9th March, 2018

 

Record EUR 1 billion European Investment Bank support for global solar investment confirmed ahead of International Solar Alliance summit

  • Largest ever backing for solar investment by world’s largest international public bank
  • India leading country for EIB solar investment
  • Strengthened engagement for solar energy in developing and emerging economies expected

In 2017 the European Investment Bank provided EUR 1.05 billion of new financing for solar energy projects around the world, representing the largest ever annual support by the EIB to the solar sector.

Ahead of the Founding Conference of the International Solar Alliance in New Delhi the European Investment Bank also confirmed strengthened engagement to support significant expansion of solar energy in developing and emerging economies.

“Solar power is providing clean energy for millions of people around the world and solar energy now represents the single largest source of new power generation. The fate of this planet depends on continuing to expand the use of renewable energy to support sustainable economic growth. This can be achieved through improved access to energy alongside scaling up a viable alternative to fossil fuels. The European Investment Bank – the EU bank – welcomes the vision of the International Solar Alliance to ensure those countries most vulnerable to climate change can harness the proven potential of solar power,” said Werner Hoyer, President of the European Investment Bank.

India leading focus of EIB backed solar investment outside Europe

India was the leading recipient of EIB financing for solar investment outside the European Union, both in 2017 and overall since 2013. The EIB has approved a total of EUR 640 million of new investment in solar projects in India set to provide clean energy to an estimated 4.2 million households and save more than 4 million tons of carbon emissions.

“The European Union and India are committed to implementing the Paris Climate agreement and working together to achieve Sustainable Development Goals, including ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. As the European Union’s bank, the EIB has a strong track record of supporting transformational investment in India and working with Indian partners to enhance solar investment across this country to benefit millions of Indian households.” said H.E. Mr. Tomasz Kozlowski, Ambassador of the European Union.

President Werner Hoyer will lead a high-level European Investment Bank Delegation to attend the International Solar Alliance summit, taking place in New Delhi this week. During the visit the EIB will confirm significant new support for EUR 500 million of new renewable energy investment across India in partnership with the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA).

Strengthened EIB financing for solar investment in developing and emerging economies

The European Investment Bank is committed to increasing support for climate related investment, including renewable energy, in developing and emerging economies to represent 35% of overall financing activity.

“More than a trillion dollars of new solar investment will be required by 2030 to deploy affordable solar energy. The European Investment Bank has a unique technical and financing experience of supporting solar projects around the world, enabling new research to further reduce deployment costs and mobilising renewable energy investment. The International Solar Alliance looks forward to welcoming President Hoyer and his colleagues to New Delhi to discuss strengthened cooperation in the years ahead.” said H.E. Upendra Tripathy, Interim Director General of the International Solar Alliance.

During the International Solar Alliance summit the EIB will outline the key role of solar energy investment across a range of technologies to reduce carbon emissions and increase access to clean energy.

Global support for solar investment to address local energy priorities

New EIB financing for solar investment in 2017 included backing for new projects in India, Mexico and Peru, as well as 13 European Union countries.

Since 2002 the EIB has financed more than EUR 6.35 billion of new solar energy investment and 50% of solar investment financed by the EIB in the last 7 years is located in developing and emerging economies. Reflecting the global solar engagement in recent years the EIB has financed photovoltaic and concentrated solar power projects across Africa in Morocco, South Africa and Burkina Faso, in Latin America in Nicaragua and Peru, in Asia in India and Vietnam as well as Turkey and Israel.

This has enabled significant expansion of access to energy using clean power production and contributed to improved economic activity and social benefits. In the coming weeks the EIB is expected to confirm significant financing for off-grid solar projects across Africa.

Background information:

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is the long-term lending institution of the European Union owned by its Member States. It makes long-term finance available for sound investment in order to contribute towards EU policy goals.

The dark ignorance of matter

And the falsehood of its twin, the mind

Are billion of years old;

They are the expressions in the cosmic web

They are the connecting fibers

And yet, they are limited to space and time

Only articulate to the senses and not beyond

The Self is the witness to these things

The journey of man’s quest to higher consciousness takes place under the auspices of the Self

And their farcical movements? 2nd or 3rd?

Symphonies are lost and found

Cities destroyed and annihilated

And prayers broken by a cacophony of words

or under the effect of gravity?

(Is it not the source and origin of the very idea of  weight?)

Working out mathematical models for further evolution

Who has passed all these eons from pre-big bang to the particle smashers?

Who has survived to see what it is and shall be?

Who has endured the pain and the joy?

Who?

Tagore and Einstein

Tagore Einstein Meeting

The historians or the evolutionary biologists?

Or the theoretical physicists?

Or the technocrats?

Or the Politicians?

Only, the Observer is…

And surrender happens

Have faith in the Self (The Brahman)

And be blessed by the Mother

When King Janaka asked Ashtavakra

About knowledge, liberation and dispassion

The answer was:

”na pṛthvī na jalaṁ nāgnirna vāyurdyaurna vā bhavān eṣāṁ sākṣiṇamātmānaṁ cidrūpaṁ viddhi muktaye” 1.3

”You do not consist of the elements – earth, water, fire, air or even ether. To be liberated, know yourself as consisting of consciousness, the witness of these”.

”yadi dehaṁ pṛthak kṛtya citi viśrāmya tiṣṭhasi adhunaiva sukhī śānto bandhamukto bhaviṣyasi”

”If only you will remain resting in consciousness, seeing yourself as distinct from the body, then even now you will become happy, peaceful and free from bonds”. 1.4

Are there any direct messages on consciousness than these?

Be touched by the grace of the divine mother and know thyself

Allow openness and not rigidity

Let the neural networks reconfigure themselves

the descent of consciousness has to take place from a higher dimension

from the noumenal center

then, you have abandoned the doer in you

And awakening is waking-up to what is here

And now….witnessing

Om Maa

BRAHMAN should not be sought as an objective reality, it

is to be realised in one’s own self .

The contentless consciousness of our own being or self

free from all superimposition of body and the mind, is BRAHMAN.

The 5 sheaths or kosas are modifications of the elements,

born to die and are known to be different from “I”-

the Pure Self.

The Self is beyond all modifications,

unborn, immortal  and the witness of all.

‘The higher form of meditation is therefore considered to be meditation on the principle of sound (nada) which is symbolized by the sacred syllable AUM, a syllable said to include all possibilities of speech since it is made of a guttural, a labial and a nasal sound, all other sounds being unavoidably contained within this triangle”.- (Alain Danielou)

Where silence is churned

And speech made erect

And blind given the vision to see

Humming with the beautiful monarch butterfly

Or with the skipper or the whistler

Neither path nor achievement;

This is the final truth. – Sri Ramana Maharshi

“What is the Buddhamind?”

“It is your (only) mind. When you apperceive it subjectively it can be called Suchness. When you apperceive its immutability it can be called Dharmakaya. It is not any thing, so it may be called Liberation. Its functioning is imperceptible, undistrubed by any object, so it may be called pure TAO. Never born, it can never die, so it may be equated with Nirvana.” – Bodhidharma

“An individual, one with cosmic self

Rinchenpong Monastery

In the heart of the Transcendent’s miracle

And the secret of World-personality

Was the creator and the lord of all.

Mind was a single innumerable look

Upon himself and all that he became.

Life was his drama and the Vast a stage,

The universe was his body, God its soul.

All was one single immense reality,

All its innumerable phenomenon”.

– Sri Aurobindo, Savitri

Jesus and the Children

THE CHILD IN YOUR ARMS

Where does he come from?

Does he belong to your heart’s throbbing motion

that resounds with the ebb and flow of the universe?

Does he mirror in your mind the rustling in the trees, the soft

lullaby of birds in the wake of the passing clouds?

Does he kindle the fire in the lost horizon?

Or, the stone that shines his face in the vermilion sun?

Sandhar taposhe samayer hriday anando pather ek antim pathik,

Tar sure ekak chander gunjan alokanandar madhumay srinjan…

Kepe uthe pakhir dana, samudrer kurma tat ar himadrir sital pati…

Kar ashrito hridaye beje uthe shankhya dhwani, mridanger tan?

Kon pushpito ashru jare marubhumir prantare?

Rajanir rachanay nadir buk chire badonar naibadya gagane gagane abhra jyotirmoy shikha

….kalantare suryera pan kare madhu

Who is the child in your arms?

Is he the sonorous beauty in a lap of grass,

dewy flakes on a lotus bud, nestling or resting?

Does he have home of his own, a playground,

a place in the hills, where the murmuring streams flow,

beside wild berries, cedar and pine?

Desert sands, fig and palm leaves are scattered everywhere

The smoke is the dust at the feet of these enormous columns

The river sways, and unknown are it’s ways

The tossed up waves remain anonymous and same

These are formations in the mind, only, apparently real;

They come and go leaving stillness behind

When all seeking is meaningless then the seeker is the sought,

There is nothing else,

By non-doing there is peace in the universe

Heaven and Earth conjoined float in bliss

The universe gazes and gazes at itself

At the very heart of things, existence is blissful forever

When there is Prajna and Dhyana always in unison

then the child is truly born from Light

This is birth by Immaculate Conception (Sri Ramakrishna, Jesus, Prabhu Jagatbandhu Sundar)

Though he seeks darkness but he finds none

since when he shines there is complete obliteration of darkness and avidya

The child in your arms is your own manifestation only in a different formation

which too will cease to exist

Then all is pervasively still – knowing by not knowing…

PRESS INFORMATION:

The New York Film Academy (NYFA) proudly introduces its newest location in Mumbai, India, which welcomed its first students this month. Mumbai is located in the heart of the world’s largest film industry and is the home of Bollywood.

NYFA

MYFA Mumbai workshops are held at the Urmi Estate (95 Ganpatrao Kadam Marg, Lower Parel [West] Mumbai, Maharashtra 400 013, India). The Urmi Estate is a modern 41 story skyscraper located in the heart of the city.

“The New York Film Academy turns 25 this year, and we’re thrilled to add this beautiful new location in Mumbai to the global NYFA family,” said Kitty Koo, NYFA Vice President – Mumbai, India. “There is no place better than Mumbai, India, the land of Bollywood.”

As is the case with all of NYFA’s locations and workshops, the Mumbai filmmaking workshops focus on learning in a hands-on film environment where students have the opportunity to make a fully-realized final film.

The acting for film workshops provide students with a strong foundation of acting skills with a specific focus on the basic elements of the craft of acting, using Stanislavski’s System, scene study, and monologue work as starting points. Students also participate in courses aimed specifically at training the actor for the technical requirements of acting on a film set.

“We’re proud to bring our innovative film and acting for film programs to Mumbai, India, an epicenter for world cinema,” added NYFA President Michael Young. “We look forward to teaching a whole new generation of Indian filmmakers and actors.”

As those who have taken a workshop with NYFA know, the workload is considered intensive, meaning students must be prepared to live and breathe the program during their enrollment.

“Taking that experience from NYFA, I was able to act as a major supporting role in ‘Baahubali’,” said NYFA alumnus Rakesh Varre, who plays Setu Patti in “Baahubali: The Conclusion.” The film has become the highest grossest Indian film in history, and has even been impressive in the North American market.

“Noumenon” necessarily is total potentiality. If it functions, in functioning it mustbe subjective, and thereby inevitably objective too. That is to say, subject objectivises itself and so becomes apparent to itself as object, manifesting phenomenally ‘within’ itself. It looks at itself and perceives the universe- which is then apparently outside itself, since objectivisation is a process of apparent objectivisation. Therefore, the phenomenal universe is the objective aspect of the noumenon.

“Mother is the discoverer of Man’s secret after he has been stripped of his machines, his religions, his spiritualisms and his materialisms, his Western or Eastern ideologies — when he is himself, simply a heart beating and calling for the Earth-of-Truth, simply a body calling for the Truth of the body, like the seagull’s cry for space and high wind.

It is her secret and her discovery that I will try to tell you.

For Mother is a fairy tale in the cells of the body.

A human cell, what is it?

Another concentration camp … biological this time?”

Tourism supports 1 in 10 jobs, outpacing global economy for 6th consecutive year, WTTC

Travel & Tourism generated 1 in 10 of the world’s jobs in 2016 as the sector grew by 3.3%, outpacing the global economy for the sixth year in a row, reads a new report by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).

WTTC’s Economic Impact Report 2017, which is conducted in conjunction with Oxford Economics, researches the economic impact of Travel & Tourism impact on global level, for 25 regions, and 185 countries.

According to the research, Travel & Tourism grew by 3.3% in 2016, generating US$7.6 trillion worldwide, which is 10.2% of global GDP when the direct, indirect and induced impacts are taken into account. The sector supported a total of 292 million jobs in 2016, which is 1 in 10 of all jobs in the world

Additionally, global visitor exports, which is money spent by foreign visitors, accounted for 6.6% of total world exports, and almost 30% of total world services exports.

David Scowsill, President & CEO, WTTC, said: “This is the sixth year in a row that Travel & Tourism has outpaced the global economy, showing the sector’s resilience, and the eagerness of people to continue to travel and discover new places, despite economic and political challenges across the world.

The continuous growth of our sector underlines the significance of business and leisure travel in driving economic development and job creation throughout the world.”

Southeast Asia (8.3%) was the region with the fastest growing Travel & Tourism sector in 2016, driven by the expanding Chinese outbound market and the countries own growing markets. Latin America (0.2%) was the slowest growing region. Some countries performed well above the world average, but the Brazilian economy dragged down the whole region.

The other regions registered the following growth: South Asia (7.9%), North East Asia (4.6%), Oceania (4.4%), the Caribbean (3.2%), North America (3.1%), the Middle East (2.7%), Sub-Saharan Africa (2.4%) and Europe (1.6%).

Travel & Tourism is expected to grow by 3.8% in 2017, generating US$ 7.9 trillion. This growth is slower than previously forecast, as a result of a downgrade to the global economy and a dampening of consumer spending.

Over the next decade the sector is forecast to grow at an average of 3.9% per year. By 2027 it will generate more than 11% of the world’s GDP and employ a total of 380 million people. One quarter of all jobs created in the next decade will be supported by Travel & Tourism.

Scowsill continued “The future prospects for Travel & Tourism are good, but the sector continues to face challenges. The impact of terrorism and the rise of populism pose a severe risk to the ability of people to travel efficiently and securely. The sector itself needs urgently to address the impact of growth on destinations and its own contribution to climate change if it is to be sustainable in the long term. The UN’s 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development is a perfect opportunity to explore solutions together. We look forward to welcoming delegates at our upcoming Global Summit in Bangkok, Thailand, 26-27 April where these challenges will be addressed.”

About WTTC:

The World Travel & Tourism Council is the global authority on the economic and social contribution of Travel & Tourism. It promotes sustainable growth for the sector, working with governments and international institutions to create jobs, to drive exports and to generate prosperity. Every year WTTC, together with Oxford Economics, produces its flagship Economic Impact Report, which looks at the socioeconomic benefits of Travel & Tourism on global, regional and country level. This year the report shows data on 25 regional groupings and 185 countries.

Travel & Tourism is a key driver for investment and economic growth globally. The sector contributes US$7.6 trillion or 10.2% of global GDP, once all direct, indirect and induced impacts are taken into account. The sector also accounts for 292 million jobs or one in ten of all jobs on the planet.

For over 25 years, WTTC has been the voice of this industry globally. Members are the Chairs, Presidents and Chief Executives of the world’s leading, private sector Travel & Tourism businesses, who bring specialist knowledge to guide government policy and decision-making, and raise awareness of the importance of the sector.

WTTC’s annual Global Summit brings together over 900 delegates to discuss the opportunities, challenges and issues facing the industry, while its Tourism for Tomorrow Awards recognise the industry’s power to be a positive force in sustainability. This year’s Summit will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, 26 – 27 April 2017.

Waiting with an openness of being                20161223_112622

Without any fixed notion or objective

This is a kind of everlasting transcendental openness

With an immense joy one just waits….

Waits and waits and waits…

The song of the universe wells up in the heart

And the myriad colours at the core of one’s being

Attuned to the pure consciousness

Lights the lamp to kindle a billion stars

This is a supramental descent

An act of grace but not by any individual effort

A supraconscient release of the plenum existence

Into an ocean of bliss
