The Dalai Lama's proclaimed, "the world will be saved by the Western woman"! Is this Western woman Louise L. Hay?

The reality is that awakening women are emerging as the leaders of the global change movement.
Women have been gathering in unprecedented numbers to consciously evolve/co-create the future together, and Louise L. Hay has been and is serving a very powerful role in facilitating leadership of this movement.
Take a look at all that Louise L Hay has been/is doing and decide.
And/or name the Western woman (women) who you think deserves this acknowledgement.

    This has nothing to due with being perfect.
    It has to do with someone who is utilizing modern-day resources in the best ways possible to help others.
    And throughout humanities' history men have been at the reins, with our present day results to show for it.

    I do not trust a majority of the religious figures today.
    I am not Buddhist, yet I do however respect Buddhism as a more sane religion than most.
    And on that note, here is another comment (which was shared with another commenter) made by the Dalai Lama that I feel is true:

    In today’s materialistic world there is a risk of people becoming
    slaves to money, as though they were simply cogs in a huge money-making
    machine. This does nothing for human dignity, freedom, and genuine
    well-being. Wealth should serve humanity, and not the other way around.

    What do you think?

    With regards to looking at Louise L. Hay's work, it is a hell of alot more than trivialized 'think positive and positive things will happen'. And if that is all you get from half-assed attempts of researching who this woman is and more importantly what she is doing presently, then my heart goes out to you.
    Btw, learning to think (rather than being thoughtlessly reactionary) is actually "one of" the foundational ingredients of how to intend things to happen.
    The choice (free will) is up to you (and each of us) whether to utilize our minds with positivity or negativity.
    Otherwise you are at the mercy of so-called luck, coincidence, and circumstances.
    So "nonsense", eh?
    Obviously half-assed attempt of research is a compliment.
    Her popularity, isn't based on her. It's based on her helping others to help others.
    She is responsible for a growing collective of modern Spiritual teachers/authors who are both males and females provided with resources/media to share vital/timely information with the masses.

    Your comments: "Ironically arguing against the very point being made here"; What does that even mean?

    Same question applies to, "Looking at the title again, is it possible that when he said 'the western woman', he meant western womEn (in broken english)?"
    Or is that a whole-hearted attempt at condescending humor at the expense of the Dalai Lama having an accent?

    Mar 6 2012: Blessings Jocelyne,

    Thank for your comment.
    Let me clarify immediately as odd as this may sound that I am not Buddhist (I don't follow any religion period) and I not a fan/follower of the Dalai Lama (no this is not a contradiction; what I am a fan of is truth and if someone is speaking the truth, I try to understand it as much as possible, respect it, and share it .
    I understand what you are saying and so I'll share something else truthful that the Dalai Lama has said:

    In today’s materialistic world there is a risk of people becoming
    slaves to money, as though they were simply cogs in a huge money-making
    machine. This does nothing for human dignity, freedom, and genuine
    well-being. Wealth should serve humanity, and not the other way around.

    Based on where we are globally today, is this some sort of true prediction and should it be heeded?

    Thank you for your comment.
    Would you like to elaborate further, as to why, "no", please?

    Mar 6 2012: Greetings/Blessings to ALL,

    Before I respond to comments please let me clarify that I apologize in advance for my responses that may offend.
    No I am not trying to be arrogant, full of my self, etc. of this nature. I am concerned for our collective well-being and desire for all to collectively succeed and fulfill our true purpose of "self-realization/actualization" .
    At the same time I do not apologize for what I am saying based on the fact that we (humanity) have been 'intoxicated while asleep at the wheel' spiritually/mentally//emotionally/physically to say the least for far too long and we are now at a critical point in human history in the making where we MUST 'wake up', be aware, and pursue truth as much as possible.

    With all this said, please know of what you speak before commenting, (properly research who Louise L. Hay is before commenting) as I didn't just pull this question out of my ass and post it out of randomness. (And save the uniformed, ignorance is bliss attitude/mentality for Yahoo news comments section or any other trivializing mainstream media commenting sections.

    I am assuming TED is for people who are interested in learning, growing, evolving, not dumb-ass-ism, as this society has already mastered that, and it is time for positive changes, in understanding.

    Thank you and now as we proceed:
    (Also thank you all for taking the time to read/comment!)

    Mar 4 2012: When a religious figure says something, I begin to question its validity and in answer to your question, no I dont think so.

    Looking at her and her work online, it is little more than 'think positive and positive things will happen'
    To some people that is inspiration, but to others (like myself) it sounds (and is, when looked at objectively) nonsense; and seeing as most of her popularity are apparently women, I would say that it ironically argues against the very point being made here.

    Looking at the title again, is it possible that when he said 'the western woman', he meant western womEn (in broken english)?
