IntroductionThe basic relation between the universe, mankind and culture is normally constructed in such an energetic, symbiotic and harmonious rhythm for the attainment of comprehensive and sustainable living. Furthermore, mankind develops and embraces technology, science, economy, politics, religion, ideology, law and culture as mean to strengthen its existence as well as to maintain integrity, order and livelihood. Seemingly, the revolution of information and communication technologies, economic exploitation, and self-centered political hegemony has deconstructed the symbiotic and harmonious plain of life, particularly in an increasingly borderless world.The notion of a borderless world (topos), a fast-paced world (chronos) and congested mindsets of a populous world close to seven billion (logos) exposes life and cultures to a variety of opportunities and threats. Culture as mode of adaptation, ground for identity, and rendition of creative lifestyle is constantly subjected to transformation, revitalization, and numerous issues and problems. Among many, the first core issue relates to a state of cultural paradox that induces conflicting ideologies and values, as well as clash of civilizations. Secondly, cultural degradation ranging from identity crisis, moral decadence to the lack of creative ingenuity also poses itself as a challenge. Thirdly, cultural anomaly comes in place, shaping social alienation, disintegration and dehumanization. These major issues infiltrate the micro-realm (personal level, microcosm), the meso-realm (ethnic and national level), and the macro-realm (universal and global level), to which renders an increasingly visible phenomenon of disharmony, disintegration and disequilibrium.This arising opportunities influenced by this borderless world phenomenon has paved the path for cross-national and intercultural communication, to which augments creativity; cross-cultural inventiveness hastening technological, economical and cultural added value. Historical and cultural findings across nations show that the dynamism of glocalization (globalism and localism) imparts promising outcomes.For instance, the archaeological, historical and cultural heritage in Bali delineates that the processes of cultural assimilation, symbiosis and acculturation have enriched the Balinese way of life. The presence of Patra Mesir (Egyptian ornaments) in traditional Balinese architecture, the artisticassimilation of Barong Landung (Bali and China), the harmonious acculturation of Tri Murti(Bali and India), the contemporary interpretation and collaboration of Balinese gamelan by various performing arts group such as Sekar Jaya USA; all demonstrate inspiring and ingeniousintercultural bond. These outcomes, to which are founded onTri Kaya Parisudha (the truthfulness of the mind, righteousness of manner and inventiveness of living) truly revitalizes and liberates logic, aesthetic, and spirituality.

Theme and ConceptThe theme of Bali WCF 2011 is Tri Kaya Parisudha: Morality And Ethics In New Global Culture.This central theme emanates from Tri Kaya Parisudha, a Balinese local wisdom that extends a universal viewpoint about pure and righteous code of conduct.As an integral part of the Indonesian archipelago, the unique Balinese culture is founded by notable conceptsof Tri Hita Karana (a fundamental understanding about the harmonious and balanced relationsof man to God, to other fellow humans, and to the environment) and Desa, Kala, Patra(revered philosophy governing the diversity of space, time and mindset), to which both shines astuteness to Tri Kaya Parisudha, as delineation of cultural creativity. 

Literally, Tri means three; Kaya means behavior; and Parisudharefers to ultimate, pure or spirited. Herein, Tri Kaya Parisudhagenerates the intellectual, emotional, spiritual and creative energies that in terms of a socio-cultural-religious perspectiverepresent the culmination of truth, spirituality, honesty, work ethics and social integrity; it is a philosophical synergy governing the universe, spirituality, human, and the environment. The Balinese believe that cultural creativity governed by Tri Kaya Parisudha will give rise to fruitful and high quality work that projects taksu(charisma, inner power or the state of elated body), as well as a universal character and impact.
