The Dalai Lama has said that one of the most hopeful things about humankind is that our global awareness – our awareness of others beyond our families, friends, neighbors and communities – is growing. He believes this increased caring is the key to improving the world for everyone. It was this ultimate goal – creating a world that works for everyone – that brought together spiritual and religious leaders from around the world to Rome and Florence for “Awakened World 2012: Engaged Spirituality of the 21st Century.” The Dalai Lama is a charter member of the International Interreligious Peace Council (IIPC), which, along with the Association of Global New Thought (AGNT) and the Interreligious Engagement Project (IEP), hosted the conference.
