REPORT about expenditure of donations on the GHA new book publication
November 5, 2009
Dear harmony friends,
On November 3 I handed the text of GHA new book: “Harmonious Civilization” in publishing house where final cost of its publication in two languages: Russian and English has been defined.
Two important circumstances have affected change on the publication initial plans:
1. The book length increased twice in comparison with the first: now it makes 260 pages (it was planned in 120-150);
2. The prices for publishing services raised on 20 % in comparison with May. As a result, I have been to refuse from the very expensive colour press of photos of GHA 38 members and to reduce the edition circulation from 2000 copies to 1200.
GENERAL EXPENSES on the publication of the book and its dispatch were made $4750 (USD).
Expenses in the USD:
Publishing house: 3200
English text editing: 750
Design – 100
Making-up – 300
Book publication on the site - 100
Dispatch – 300
These expenses have been covered from the following sources:
1. Donations of GHA 17 members from Russia: $2000
2. Donations of GHA 15 foreign members: $1470
3. Leo Semashko's credit: $1280
1. Three foreign sponsors promised to bring the donations later: they will be spent for credit payment.
2. My credit is provided, basically, my sons: Alexander and Andrey to whom I am very grateful and highly appreciate for their help.
Now I am glad to publish the list of GHA members, who brought donations for the edition of GHA new book. This list is published also in the book.

Hiroshima - Nagasaki August 6 /9, 1945-2009: Reminder of "Universal Nuclear Genocide" and its Alternative
Dear Takis, Dear All!
Today is the tragical day for all mankind. This day shown 64 years ago with one's own eyes "universal nuclear genocide” (Ernesto Kahan and Taki Yuriko) and proved to everything, that the industrial civilization IS CAPABLE FREELY to destroy for few minutes mankind also as IT WAS CAPABLE FREELY to destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki (about 200 thousand innocent victims: children, women, old men, men) for one minute in August 1945. Therefore, I was happy to publish today the talented and inspired me poetic protest-reminder of known Greek poet Takis Ioannides “WE NEVER FORGET!” together with the same strong protest-reminder of the world famous poets Ernesto Kahan, Israel and Taki Yuriko, Japan – their immortal book "GENOCIDE" on our site “Peace from Harmony”:
In “universal nuclear genocide” not so much separate countries are guilty: Japan with Perl-Harbor 1941, or the USA with Hiroshima and Nagasaki 1945 etc. (this list is infinite as well as hostile disputes round it), as the world order of an industrial civilization pushing each country to violence and in which almost each country brings its evil contribution. The interdependent global mankind can exist now only in other world order of a harmonious civilization that each country could be the contributor not in a universal genocide but in universal harmony.
We, as members of the Global Harmony Association (GHA) and authors of 19 projects of global harmony which are topped by the "Harmonious Civilization Universal Declaration” (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=375), scientifically realize, that alternative to "universal nuclear genocide”, which 64 years hang as the Sword of Damocles over mankind, can be only a global harmonious civilization. Presidents of Russia and the USA began this civilization since April 1, 2009 by the joint statement on reduction and liquidation of the nuclear weapons. Nuclear disarmament is impossible in an industrial civilization. Nuclear disarmament is possible only in a new civilization which begins with the beginning of nuclear disarmament. The GHA paves a way to this civilization by the projects of global harmony. The more intensively and more widely worldwide we will advance these and similar projects of global harmony, the more likely mankind will be released from horror and fear of universal nuclear genocide, constantly hanging over it. We never should afford and another to forget this horror, a reminder to which talented creations of the GHA many members serve. At the same time, we should understand very clearly: one reminder is insufficiently: the persistent and heavy everyday work on development of a harmonious civilization, on comprehension of its sharp necessity as our saving positive alternative is necessary. We do it with you in our projects of global harmony and in its poetic creations.
One of such creations is the new book of the GHA Honorary Member, “Harmonious Peace Hero”, known Argentina poetess Susana Roberts. I was happy to publish a cover of this book together with Ernesto Kahan foreword on the GHA website: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=275. I hearty congratulate Susana with her new poetic achievement of harmony for harmonious civilization.
I also was happy to publish a poem SAYING “HIROSHIMA” of the known Japanese poetess Sadako Kurihara who Taki Yuriko with comments kindly sent to me today. This poem is ingenious that it expresses the mutual guilt and responsibility for a universal nuclear genocide in an industrial civilization:

The GHA’s ugly ducklings, Pontius Pilate, and warm care about harmony nestlings
Dear Peace from Harmony authors, Global Harmony Association members, and friends!
In this anniversary, please allow me to remind us of our sources and to view the results of our first four years.
The friendship and scientific cooperation of the group of sociologists, psychologists, linguists, and artists in six countries who were interested in Tetrasociology as a theory of social harmony in 2002 has became a source of the web site “Peace from Harmony.” This group developed as a result of discussion of my fundamental sociological work: Tetrasociology: Responses to Challenges (2002, in Russian and English languages), which was presented in the 16th World Sociological Congress in Brisbane, Australia, in July 2002. This group consisted of: myself, Dr. Leo Semashko of Russia, philosopher and sociologist and initiator of the group; also from Russia: Professor of psychology Alexander Juriev, linguist Boris Kondratjev, and writer Vladimir Kavtorin; Doctors of sociology Martha Ross DeWitt and Bernard Phillips from the USA; Doctor of sociology Bernard Scott from England; Doctor Bernd Hornung from Germany; artist Hilarie Roseman from Australia; Professor of sociology Reimon Bachika from Japan; and others for a total in all of 15 persons.
The book Tetrasociology: From Sociological Imagination through Dialogue to Universal Values and Harmony (2003) in three languages (Russian, English and Esperanto) became the first collective fruit of this group (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=149) and a prototype of all subsequent projects listed below. This group became the foundation for the web site “Peace from Harmony” on February 15, 2005, and for the community, from which arose the Global Harmony Association (GHA), which received the legal Statutes on November 30, 2007.
On behalf of this group of pathfinders in a scientific paradigm of social harmony and pioneers in the harmonizing world union, I am happy to congratulate all creators and friends of social harmony on our fourth anniversary of its conscious and purposeful global life!
For four years, the number of site authors and GHA members has grown to more than 300, representing 48 countries of the world. Some original and collective works of the GHA members were published on the site in 17 languages. In addition, GHA unites the collective members with more than one million members from more than 80 countries. The number of site pages has reached 230 and has become the unique global book of world harmony, uniting many cultures of harmony of the East and the West, the North and the South. The number of site visits reached almost one million within these four years, including more than 500 thousand in the last year alone. But our main accomplishment is this: Within these four years, we created so many new ideas and projects that they allowed us to cross the Rubicon from words and theory to the practice of harmonious peace. Our work has allowed us to enter into the area of economic, market embodiment through our key, academic project.
However, the market has its own laws and requirements. The market lives by competition. The market demands advertising and that we provide a clear understanding of our resources and achievements. In order to answer the market’s demand and to realize global acceptance of our projects, which are our product, we gladly and proudly announce that, in the last four years, GHA created 11 global projects of world value:
1.International web site and community “Peace from Harmony,” since February 15, 2005
2.Movement “Making Children a Priority in the World,” since May 2005 and the Law “Children’s Suffrage,” since March 2004
3.Harmonious Era Calendar, since January 2006
4.Magna Carta of Harmony, since December 2006
5.World Harmony/Peace Academy and General Harmonious Education, since May 2007
6.Textbook: Tetrasociology: Science about Social and Individual Harmony, since July 2008
7.Russia–Georgia: Harmonization through education instead of militarization, since August 2008
8.World Harmony/Peace Festival 2010 (similar to Olympic Games) since September 2008
9.Fractals of Social Harmony and Tetrasociological Mathematics of Harmony, since October 2008
10.Global Harmonious Revolution/Transformation of Modernity, since October 2008,
11.Global Harmonious Competition-Partnership, or “A Peace Race” of states and projects in the field of harmonious/peace education, since January 2009
We could accomplish so much and create so many effective world projects so quickly only because of our scientific basis: Tetrasociology, developed of 1976. The GHA projects arise from, are developed through, and, thereby, unite ten global theoretical discoveries that are at the core of Tetrasociology:
- Tetrasociology, as the first science of social and individual harmony
- Sphere classes of population, as conscious actors of social harmony
- Sphere democracy, based on equal division of the political (legislative, executive and judicial) power between four sphere classes of population, as democracy of social harmony; and the sphere state, as the political tool of social harmony adequate to sphere democracy.
- Sphere management, which provides constant harmonization of social processes in all spheres, branches, and institutes and which is a constant conscious state policy of social harmonization.
- Social priority of children, as a necessary condition of social harmony of spheres and sphere classes of society.
- Harmonious peace culture, which recognizes that true peace is a consequence of social harmony, and that social disharmony is the true reason of wars and conflicts; the harmonious peace culture is the alternative to the generally accepted industrial peace culture, which readily accepts the “arms race” and recognizes only a “pseudo peace” as a temporary pause in hostilities between war and conflict.
- Sphere macrosocial statistics, as statistics of social harmony.
- Sphere information-statistical technology, as a complex of technologies of social, cultural, political, economic, and individual harmonization.
- Sphere marketing, as harmonious economy, free from financial and other crises.
- General harmonious education, as a universal way for humankind to experience social harmony and survival.
These discoveries have more than 100 examples of practical (technological, social, cultural, educational, organizational, political) applications in all spheres since 1976. These discoveries are presented in more than 200 scientific works, including 11 books that have been published in one to 16 different languages. Tetrasociology has been taught for more than ten years at the Universities of Petersburg since 1993.
Yet, the discoveries of Tetrasociology and GHA projects on which they are based are still very weak and still very far from perfection. The current “lack” of acceptance allows us to title them as “ugly ducklings” or “sprouts” of harmonious civilization born within GHA. Even though apparently weak, these (21: 10 discoveries and 11 the GHA projects) ugly ducklings already possess powerful advantages. Our duty as responsible world citizens and “parents” of these sprouts is to protect them in the current competitive environment and to make sure they do not die but grow into beautiful, elegant swans of a harmonious society.
However, there is one competitive partnership that we have created in the educational area between the states and similar projects. GHA created and declared this competition in the beginning of 2009: http://peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=356. As stated by Martin Luther King, Jr., “shift the arms race into a peace race.” A peace race, as a harmonious competition-partnership in education, will include our academic project, plus existing Academies of Peace and Harmony, the Muslim leader Aga Khan Peace Academies, and the new Academies of Peace that are being planned in the USA and other countries. A peace race “competition” supersedes the arms race and the “clash of civilizations” as the most dangerous threat for harmony sprouts.
For our “ugly duckling nestlings” to survive, three basic conditions are required:
1.We must keep them safe from indifference, neglect, and the disbelief that those beautiful “swans” of a harmonious civilization can grow within the competitive environment. It is our internal “Pontius Pilate,” the skeptic who washed his hands of the fate of Christ, from which we should release ourselves.
2.We must provide fertile ground and smooth waters in order to create for youth, who embody the emerging swan mentality, a Harmony Academy, which would cost $27 million for three years ($9 million every year).
3.We must accept our responsibility, our partnership, and our care for the “nestlings” of harmony. We cannot allow them to die a frozen death; rather, we must warm them in the heat of sincere support and practical help. This is necessary.
Fortunately, we are already showing this care, which we can consider as “anniversary gifts,” in many various ways: Translations in Spanish from Susana Roberts and in French from Prof. Ammar Banni; GHA letters to the governments of England, Argentina, and India from Dr. Bernard Scott, Prof. Maria Cristina Azkona, and Dr. Tholana Chakravarthy; variants of mathematics of social harmony from Peter Sergienko and Vadim Trifanov; poems from Taki Yuriko; drawings from Nina Goncharova; and many more from many others. We extend our sincerest “thank you” to all of our colleagues who brighten the colours of our anniversary with a firework of gifts for our emerging swans.
Today, the day before our anniversary, per the invitation of Rose Lord, the Global Coalition for Peace Co-chair and devoted GHA member, we begin a new Harmonious Era tradition: We started to participate in the Worldwide Weekly Meditation/Prayer for Peace. I call upon GHA members and friends to join this prayer every Saturday evening, at 6:00 PM (local time). I ask that you meditate or pray this specifically: “I pray that the world harmony of spheres for global conscious harmony on the Earth will provide for the survival of humankind. I pray that global sphere classes of the population will emerge as creators of global conscious harmony and harmonious peace. I pray for harmonious peace, for peace from harmony, and for harmony that gives us true peace and happiness. I pray for general harmonious education as a way of humankind, primarily the children of the world, to accept and appreciate harmonious peace and happiness. And I pray for the Global Harmony Association.”
Such are our achievements and tasks as a result of our four years of development. We have good reason to be proud and to be assured of our ability to solve, with dignity, new problems on way of the birth of the harmonious civilization that excludes wars, terror, poverty and other industrial pathologies. only the harmonious civilization can provide for survival, prosperity, happiness, harmonious peace, and the common good to children and future generations. We have walked together on this difficult, but noble, path for four years, and we have every right to congratulate ourselves and our friends for what we have accomplished.
With love and gratitude,

December 15, 2008. World requires harmonizing changes! $27 million as GHA strategy. New Year's message.
Dear Harmony Academy Authors, Friends!
2008 comes to an end. What are its results?
In 2008, through Barack Obama’s election to the United States Presidency, the world understood the necessity of change.
Shocks of this year: global financial crisis in USA; youth revolts in Thailand, Greece, France, and Russia, which tomorrow could occur in any country worldwide; continuous multi-milliard swindles in USA and Germany, creeping worldwide, and others.
These are the modern attributes of the breakdown of an industrial civilization in addition to its traditional defects: wars, violence, terror, poverty, pollution, armaments and so on.
The combination of traditional defects blended with these modern shocks led the world to comprehension of the necessity for immediate changes at last.
But what are changing? And in what is direction? What are the mechanisms and processes of change?
It became obvious, that the industrial deity — that is, money — is a useless mechanism for making decisions about global problems and it is a very small and narrow yardstick for measuring the accomplishments of human beings. Money, as it is well known, will not buy happiness, love or peace. only harmony, social and individual harmony, can give people happiness, love and peace. only harmony is a complete and adequate measure for humans.
Harmonization is the true modern change for humans and the world. Harmonization is the only salvation for humans and the world. Therefore, in 2009, I am convinced that the world will realize this change through harmonization and in harmonization.
The conscious, universal and systematic beginning of change toward harmonization, including the means to resolve modern global problems, world crises and youth revolts, can only be General Harmonious Education and World Harmony/Peace Academy (WHPA).
The world has closely approached to this consciousness of harmonious education. It has created practically all the necessary resources and preconditions for this purpose. The World Peace Congress of educators in Malaysia, at the end of 2008, approved the WHPA project as a means of educational reform, which is necessary for modernity. Now, it is necessary for the modern world, as stated by Eleanor Roosevelt, to experience an "educational revolution."
This educational revolution is required in order to resolve global problems of mankind. The educational revolution is required in order to resolve the youth revolts.
Why do young people revolt? It does not suffice for them to have money? Young people revolt because hopelessness in the absence of positive alternatives. Young people revolt because there is an absence of happiness. Happiness can be realized only through harmony. And harmony can be learned only through general harmonious education.
If the consciousness of youth is limited by a narrow vocational training and disharmonious knowledge of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, economy, engineering, business, and so on, then the consciousness of youth is open to any destructive system or any anarchic revolt.
Therefore, the resolution of all crises and revolts of modernity are the SUBCONSCIOUS REQUIREMENT of harmony and general harmonious education. This education is a priority throughout the world! And I am convinced that, in 2009, this WILL BE CLEAR for all.
The main contribution to the world’s comprehension and acceptance of harmonization belongs to the Global Harmony Association (GHA), to its ten projects, the crown jewel of which is the WHPA. The brief evolution of our Academic (educational) project since the end of 2007 has concentrated on a search of its financing, in the amount of $27 millionfor the first three years of its first stage. GHA has ALL necessary resources: staff (faculty), information (science), international support and organization for creating the Harmony Academy, EXCEPT FOR $27 million in financing.
What is $27 million? It is a very modest payment for the beginning of a system global harmonization through general harmonious education. It is a paltry sum for the budget of any country, even the smallest and poorest. Business venture capitalists, for example, could invest $27 million in the Academy and sell it to a government in three to four years and show a ten-fold profit.
Some of the GHA members, panicked by crises, have begun to say that now is not the time to search for money for WHPA. I can not agree with that statement. I think differently. I think the opposite: that the modern crises and revolts REQUIRE that we search for $27 millions. Now is not a time to push a brake, but a time for ACCELERATION toward the realization of this project as a positive global change and as a hope for youth and children. only this Academy is capable of creating every one or two years the essentially new humanitarian technologies of harmonization for youth and technologies for economic and financial harmonization that are capable of preventing these crises from continuing and growing at global and local levels in the future.
Therefore, within the conditions of this long crisis, the WHPA project requires expansion of its recognition by others: NGOs, advertising, governments, and funding organizations. We need discussion in MASS-MEDIA, in Congresses of scientists, among teachers and so on. If we, the authors of this project, shall be silent, be inactive, and wait for the mythical "best" industrial times, which never will be, then the positive, harmonizing changes will not be either. Not in USA, nor in Greece, nor in France, nor in any other country. GHA must strengthen our strategies to search for $27 million for Academy financing. This strategy was approved in June 2008. Since then, the chances of the WHPA project coming into existence during these conditions of long crisis are not lowered, but raised.
In this respect, we have made much progress. We sent letters to Governments of four countries: Russia, France, Malaysia and Rwanda and to the UN. We prepare letters for 15 Governments: China, Taiwan, USA, Greece, India, Norway, Israel, Japan, Singapore, Lebanon, Kazakhstan, Ukraine (Crimea), Congo (Brazzaville), Kenya, and Cameroon. I am sure that, in 2009, from these 20 Governments, we will be find one, two, or three that will respond positively to our letters on financing.
The main problem is the search for the leader or General Director for the WHPA national branch and its team. I think each member of the WHPA General Directorate could be such leader, or be a member of this team, or find team members among friends and prepared youth. I think about each author of the project as the member of a national team for this Academy.
Another accomplishment is that our Academic (educational) project has been translated into five languages: Russian, English, Spanish, Chinese and Romanian. It is still necessary that we translate this project into at least four other languages: French, Arabic, Japanese, and Esperanto; the French translation is currently under way, thanks to Prof. Ammar Banni.
The WHPA project is being actively advertised by: Alexander Olshansky in Moscow; Genrih Skvortsov in St. Petersburg; Susana Roberts in Argentina; Guy Crequie in France; Charles Mercieca, Robert M. Weir, and Martha Ross DeWitt in USA; Takis Ioannides in Greece; Rosa Dalmiglio in the European Union and China; Jiang Yimin in China; Lana Yang on Taiwan; Maitreyee Roy in India; Jean Basabose in Rwanda; Muhammad Iqbal in Pakistan; and many others. I am sincerely grateful to each of these people for their great contribution to the Academy project.
Of significance is that the WHPA project was submitted at two international conferences in 2008: in Kuala Lumpur, where it found support of the International Association of Educators for World Peace, and in Yalta’s Conference on interfaith relations where it caused the large interest.
However, these efforts are not enough. Each of the almost 80 co-authors could be telling about this project, its insignificant cost of $27 million, and its highest effect at any public assembly before any audience. This project is urgent for each country in the world. The recognition and destiny of our educational project depends on each of us. I hope, that each of the authors understands this and, in the next year, will define and refine their own initiatives to speak out on behalf of progress of this project.
Personally, I am going to be engaged, until February 1, only in the writing of letters to Governments and in finishing our approved strategy. In view of the special circumstances of the previous 2.5 months when I was unsettled, I can not be engaged in any other of our current projects: mathematics of harmony, textbook, article, etc. However, I shall return to active participation in those areas in February, and we shall approve the plan of our work for 2009.
I also offer to transfer, during the period of February through May, the updating of GHA Statutes and our membership fees into one of the children's organizations, for example, in Kigali. In this connection, I have asked Jean Basabose to find in this city the poor little children's establishment into which we could transfer our membership fees.
There is one more personal problem: my health, which, unfortunately, is not better. The doctors have, for a long time, recommended that I enter a hospital for two or three weeks. Quite probably, I shall be compelled to do that, either prior to or soon after the New Year.
As a whole, the 2008 was great for us and for all GHA members. But I am sure, that the next year will be even greater as the practical realization of the WHPA project will begin in one or several countries of the world.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year to all you!!! In the New Year, the new steps to harmony, happiness and peace will wait us!!!

The Site “A New Culture of Peace from Social Harmony and Children’s Priority”
News from October 18, 2007 to July 6, 2008
The main events for almost 9 months were:
1. Creation of the first in the world the Global Harmony Association (GHA), which the Statutes was approved on November 30, 2007;
2. Creation of the unique educational project of global importance: World Harmony/Peace Academy (WHPA) by 65 (now more 70) coauthors from 20 countries. For active participation in the project 47 co-authors were recognized by the Global Harmony Association Honorary Members.
Basic news: In the site "Contents" 20 new pages have been opened, making a total of 214. 45 new authors have appeared (including 7 children), making a total of 286 (including 24 children). The seven new countries: New Zealand, Slovenia, Cameroon, Rwanda, Byelorussia, Egypt, Lesotho have appeared, making a total of 46. 202 new materials ("news") are published. 11 new friendly sites have appeared, making a total of 105. The number of visits of the site from the date of its creation exceeded 550 thousand.
Our top-priority task: search of financing for the World Harmony/Peace Academy and beginning of its realization in one of the countries of the world. It is an extremely complex and unprecedented task, which will require of us of concentration of all our forces and release from other tasks and any distracting or destructive actions.
The announcement: In view of a new top-priority task and abundance of materials, their publication on the site is sharply limited.
Gratitude. I express hearty gratitude to all authors of the World Harmony/Peace Academy project for participation in its creation. Without our joint creativity this project could not appear.

"Peace from Harmony", the Third Anniversary on February 15, 2008: Results, Problems and Challenges
Dear Peace from Harmony Authors, Global Harmony Association Members, Friends!
I am happy to send you this message with my deep gratitude for your fidelity to the world harmony and with my heart congratulations concerning the THIRD anniversary of our site "A New Culture of Peace from Social Harmony and Children’s Priority" (briefly: "Peace from harmony": www.peacefromharmony.org), which was open on February 15, 2005.
Let briefly to tell about our achievements for this year in comparison with two last (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=253), and also about problems and challenges, with which we confronted.
In past year we continued to carry out our mission "peace from harmony", i.e. creation of the global peace on the world harmony basis. It was expressed in three our major achievements of world importance.
First, it is creation of the Magna Carta of Harmony for an information civilization" by 43 authors from 16 countries, which is the first world document by scientific (tetrasociological) comprehension of social and individual harmony, ways of their achievement and construction on their basis of the global harmonious peace and appropriate culture.
Secondly, it is creation of the Global Harmony Association Statutes, as the first world organizational document for the conscious movement to world harmony.
Thirdly, it is creation of the Global Harmony Association (GHA) as the first world organization of conscious evolutionary movement to world harmony. GHA is, as a matter of fact, a seed and beginning of the new International of Harmony and Peace (or) Peace from Harmony, which essentially differs from the traditional Internationals of an industrial society: they divided the people on hostile camps but not united them for global peace and harmony. GHA creates the scientific and most effective, through harmonious education, way to achieve global harmonious peace for all peacemaking organizations of the world. I am happy to inform, that the first organization on February 10 joining to GHA, is the oldest (with 1969) and one of most powerful NGO: International Association of Educators for World Peace (IAEWP). It is the GHA first collective member. IAEWP has branches in 80 countries of the world and unites more than 50 thousand members. The world famous teacher and scientist Professor Charles Mercieca, the GHA Board member and our “of harmony and peace bell”, is the IAEWP Founder and President. The Agreement about IAEWP joining to GHA is published at the address:http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=316. It can serve a sample for the other organizations, which we call to join GHA.
We continued to collect on the site the ideas and persons of harmony from all world and to unite them in the different projects of a harmonious peace culture, which (projects) now are totaled more than 40.
The most significant of them is the World Harmony Academy (WHA) project, which practically unites almost all others our projects and gives them a way for realization through harmonious education of children, youth and new generations as world citizens. It is a long but the most effective way for achievement of indestructible harmonious peace and its culture. Spreading WHA and harmonious education worldwide is capable for 15-20 years not only to stop all modern wars but also to prevent all wars in the future. It is the most effective way of the fight for peace. (This project was discussed by 20 Russian co-authors about 3 months. Now it - 25 pages - is translated on the English language and in 2-3 weeks will be submitted for discussion of its foreign co-authors).
We begun the new project of a Hymn to Harmony, called to create a poetic and musical masterpiece of modernity inspiring all peoples of the world on creation of global harmony as source of true peace. Since January 19 we received 6 poems: http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=315.
Our past projects developed also. So, for example, a number of the Harmonious Era Calendar authors increased up to 42 with 27, and number of its dates up to 53 with 27. The project For Social Harmony in the World in Support of China found wide reflection on the site separate page and appropriate photo-gallery. The Children’s Priority project found a new support in annual transfer of the GHA membership fees in one of children's organizations of developing countries. In this connection let once again to remind you kindly, that the membership fees and donations transfer to disabled children organization, Kolkata, India proceeds up to February 28. (Organization Chief: Dr Maitreyee Bardhan Roy: email@example.com).
The site continues to unite cultures of the East and West, North and South. on it all the basic religions and local civilizations of the Earth are submitted. It synthesizes the Western structural idea of spheres and the East value idea of harmony. It overcomes polarization "of two cultures": technical and humanitarian and creates creative unity for science and art.
For one year the number of our site authors, who write the wonderful book Peace from Harmony together, increased with 190 up to 254 persons. Each author has brought the unique contribution to our site as a treasury of world harmony by the information of the first-rate quality. Each author deserves the warmest and sincere gratitude all of us. The countries representation on the site has grown with 33 up to 41 countries from all continents of the world. The publications of the site has grown with 15 up to 17 languages.
Subjects of our site have extended considerably. only number of the site "Contents" pages has grown with 158 up to 202, though some of them still wait the authors and appropriate information. The friendly sites number has increased with 80 up to 100.
In October - November 2007 the GHA Board was created, which includes 8 authors from 7 countries, and also Honorary Advisory Committee, including 23 author from 10 countries. For our site the new place was led. Now it is defined in the GHA Statutes (clause 1) as "the centre of the Global Harmony Association communication space and also its main information body and resource".
The site appearance and its Main page changed considerably also, on which the site new emblem in a line of three female symbols of harmony, replacing each other appeared. The merit of the site technical updating belongs to my young colleague, student Ivan Ivanov, to who I am very grateful for it. The site and its forum number of visits for one year increased with 60 thousand up to about 360 thousand. The number of daily visits reached about 1000 and it is not a limit.
So, for one year the site authors made the significant contribution to development of a harmonious peace culture. We have all bases highly to estimate this contribution and to congratulate each other with excellent work and productive cooperation. However, for three years the internal problems and external challenges have ripened and aggravated.
From many our problems I want to name two.
1. The financial problem has become aggravated up to a limit: I am shame to ask tens time of tens people to carry out laborious works for translation, editing etc. without any of material compensation. The problem of translation on the site is sharpest. More than 2500 texts published on it, wait for translation on its 17 languages. Here I want to express general gratitude and high appreciation to our voluntary translators, who translated and edited for the site tens pages of the different texts: Tholana Chakravarthy, Martha Ross DeWitt, Claude Veziau, Maria Cristina Azcona, Bernard Scott, Reimon Bachika, Susana Roberts, Renato Corsetti, Jan Faullimmel, Takis Ioannidis, Guy Crequie, Nina Goncharova, Robert Weir, Alexander Verbitsky, Tatomir Ion Marius, Muhammad Iqbal and others. All active translators received (or will receive) the Honorary Tittles of our site and GHA.
2. The GHA and site tasks were considerably complicated in connection with their quantitative growth and quality of the new projects. They conduct to an aggravation of the attitudes between us. As all of us are come from an internally hostile industrial society and are still very far from internal harmony, at us (at me including) not always gets the skills and tact of harmony for the harmonious decision of the conflicts. Some our members are not capable to understand and accept a scientific novelty of our projects, therefore they leave organization or remain passive. But on their place the new and young people come, with new energy of harmony, which freshens and updates our Union. All of us learn in harmony, all of us are its pupils but not all and not always we are its excellent student. It is natural process. It should be perceived with understanding, calmness and without a forcing of negative emotions concerning our separate disharmonious trivialities and reactions. The harmony supposes tolerance, forgiveness and magnanimity.
The external challenges go from the aggravating political conditions in the world, from a new coil of arm race, from crisis of traditional peace culture and fight for peace (I have devoted to this crisis special work: A New Quality of the Fight for Peace: http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=301). GHA is non political organization; we do not intervene in the modern political conflicts strengthening enmity instead of harmony. But we can not be outside of them. Traditional peace culture and fight, at all their high moral status, shown the practical powerlessness and full inefficiency. The world movement for peace, all the numerous peacemaking organizations of the last and new century did not know the reasons of peace, therefore they could not stop any war. Efficiency of traditional culture and fight for peace are close to zero. They have only moral importance and are in this respect very important. They are not capable to counteract war in another way. Therefore they are mistrustful to the GHA’s ways and projects and resist to them. And the modern society, which remains in a majority industrial, in general is hostile to harmony and its projects.
Our GHA for the first time in the world scientifically, on a basis of tetrasociology, showed a way of an establishment of global peace: harmony of social spheres and sphere classes of humankind and each society. They are a single reason and ground for the global harmonious peace, which we opened in our documents and projects having no analogues in the world. Traditional culture and the fight for peace do not know this reason, therefore they are powerless and are inefficient. The reasons of wars are the private interests of groups and separate countries, which (reasons) are eliminated only by harmony of the universal sphere classes. Therefore movement for peace can be effective not by struggle AGAINST the private militarist interests, but FOR universal sphere harmony. Unfortunately, last is unknown to social science, except for tetrasociology, and to traditional peacemaking organizations, except for GHA. We are in opposition to each other. We throw each other challenge. Our challenge consists that we invite a social science to rise on a level of tetrasociology and the organizations aspiring to the effective fight for peace and peacebuilding to join GHA.
Absence of scientific understanding of the reason and source of peace as social harmony and constant arms race are the most powerful challenges for GHA and our worldview. Variant of a temporary defeat of our projects and even of the GHA disintegration therefore is not excluded. But a bit later they will be claimed with necessity, as the objective global harmony tendency, which we see and understand, grows simultaneously. This gives us strong hope for a survival.
We fulfil a mission of pioneers for conscious world harmony, harmonious peace and its new culture. This mission is extremely complex; it contradicts to a traditional society and traditional peacebuilding but only it is perspective for humankind. The history of our GHA is a small part of the new, difficult, but inevitable history of a harmonious civilization going on change of an industrial disharmonious civilization. This history includes the European Union with its motto of harmony; Singapore with its Declaration of racial harmony and creation of "the race harmonious nation"; Russia with its “sobornost” as harmony; China with its "building society of social harmony" and culture of harmony going from Confucius; Kazakhstan with its idea of harmony of Europe and Asia; USA with them 14 schools of harmony arisen with 2000 in the states of Texas and Louisiana and other tendencies of an objective harmonization unknown for us. Our merit consists that we consciously and scientifically begun a new history of harmony. Let's congratulate each other with it in day of our third anniversary! Let's wish each other so fruitful movement in the future.
With love, gratitude and best harmony wishes,
Dr Leo Semashko,

The sharp contradiction between our rich opportunities, enormous potential of global harmony and the insignificant means requires first of all the internal organizational reform, mobilizing and inspiring us. Its project I shall present you the coming days. This contradiction also requires the expert, which would be capable to solve this problem through the competent ways of financial search. I am ready to include in the Board anyone, who will declare this ability.
