Welcome

Abbot President Master Dao Yi (Dr. Yu Hsi)

President of XXXV WCP

 

The 35th World Congress of Poets will be held in Taiwan from the 5 to 10 November 2015. This is the third time I organize World Congress of Poets in Taiwan. In order to welcome distinguished poets and guests from all over the world, we’ve designed a special cultural feast for the body, mind and spirit. In addition to the sharing of poetry between poets, we have also selected Waisanding Sand Bar of the west coast of Taiwan as one of the venues for this year’s congress to reflect the innocence and purity of the poetical heart. We sincerely invite all of you to enjoy this poetical gathering on Formosa Island Taiwan.
