Maharlika Summit 2014: The Re-visioning of Maharlika

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Change is progressive. We cannot deny the fact that today, our nation needs total change and transformation. There is crisis in every aspect of life. Most of our countrymen have been deprived of their basic necessities such as food, clothing, shelter, and medicine. How much more on the human rights, employment, social standing, economics, education, etc. to name a few. To one long forgotten aspect is the enrichment of our culture heritage and the right access to the origin of our country's name.

If we get back to our roots, there is a connecting link from the past that must be patched up to resolve the mystery that has remained—a question of our own identity.

Maharlika Summit 2014 is a Conference-Festival Summit on ‘Maharlika’ to gather together
diverse “Maharlika”-based groups in the country and abroad. It is the Re-visioning of ‘Maharlika’ as Cultural  Metaphor, Folk History & Social Movement for National Identity, Transformation, and Development.

This whole day event will be on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at the GT-Toyota Building, Asian Center, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Q.C.

What is the Summit about? Maharlika, of course! What is Maharlika? Well, I think it will do all of us a world of good if we all take this mounting chance of slipping into the wonder land of curiousity ... urgently you direct yourself into search the web for Maharlika meanings that may resonate with you. In time for the summit, shall we be better informed about it, so much so that we can be already and able to trim out even our own deep seated emotional aliases, and biases. without much ado. In your heart, you simply know you gotta be there.... so, see you!

Where do we start? We begin from the consciousness that has been stuck up and has to awaken.
With a growing number of individuals, groups, and organizations working for the “Maharlika” cause and ideals, there is a growing need to raise the level of Maharlika discourse to a national and regional level – establishing its philosophical foundations, defining its shared meanings, and articulating its shared ideals, goals, and vision.

Hence, there is a need to establish its academic discourse, looking at it from many angles : semantically, metaphorically, symbolically, politically, sociologically, economically, anthropologically, historically, and even from the perspective of the arts, culture and the humanities, specially its mythical dimensions.

For Maharlika Summit 2014, the main goal is to examine the word, concept and metaphor of “maharlika”, and to revision it as a cultural metaphor, folk history, and social movement, for applied and policy research, and for its possible contribution in social, cultural and human development and national transformation.

There is a need to gather together diverse “Maharlika”-based groups in the country (or even abroad), on account of their growth in numbers, expansion of consciousness, intensification of desire, and deepening of intentions, in their quest for the Maharlikan ideals of personal and social transformation, as well as national identity, development and harmony.
