Dalai Lama

2011/04

Notable People

During the Vancouver Peace Summit 2009, the Dalai Lama stated unequivocally that,

“The world will be saved by the western woman.” 

Western women are in the position to speak out on behalf of justice and mercy. And yet, many western women wither from their fears of not being enough (creative enough, smart enough, young enough, wealthy enough).  

We can only experience a new world

when we recognize what the NEW need is:  

 The Need to Empower Women

    I found this blog because you were kind enough to subscribe to mine.

    I picked this post because I was present when HHDL spoke those words in Vancouver in ’09.
