dc.descriptionEach culture possesses its own heritage. Cultural heritage is socially transmitted from one generation to another. Ideals and values are among this transmitted heritage. They are born in particular cultures. However, when they are applicable to other cultures, we can consider them universal as proposed by Siegel. Multiculturalism should be one of the universal ideals in the age of globalization because it promotes equal opportunities for all people-regardless of their diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Simultaneously, the models as proposed by Whitehead, the King and Jung are also appropriate in this day because they can provide room for common values and globalization which is inevitable (no matter we like it or not). Thailand is a country with its own cultural identities. Among our cultural heritage are the royal institution, religious pluralism and the family institution. Throughout its history, Thailand has never lacked scholars and wise persons. Among those wise people is King Bhumibhol the present king of Thailand. He is a great king who has always worked hard and cared for his people. The problem is merely whether or not Thai people learn how to listen to him, reflect on what he has taught and put those teachings into practice in their everyday lives.
