Honored guests, dear friends, good afternoon!

Welcome to the 2014 International Forum on the Awakening of Conscience on this International Love and Peace Day.  Prominent leaders from all circles have gathered here today to provide wise and conscientious suggestions for the community, the nation, and the world.  This is our collective honor and blessings.

At this time of heightened risks of natural catastrophes, man-made calamities, and outbreaks of wars, people’s hearts are surrounded by anxiety and uncertainty.  However, sitting and waiting anxiously cannot bring us a brighter future.  For humanity’s continued existence, the key to turning the world around lies in the awakening of conscience in every one of us.

Reflecting upon the world’s problems, collectively, they are the result of people’s deluded pursuit of external things.  A single thought of evil initially jeopardizes our own safety and in the end, the safety of other world citizens.  In today’s chaotic world, it is especially important to listen quietly to the calling in the depth of our souls, which points us in the right direction.  When we act according to our conscience in our respective position, we become a hero/herion, a “superman/superwoman” that helps improve the world’s destiny. 

Today marks the ninth anniversary of the International Love and Peace Day. The Declaration of International Love and Peace Day, proclaimed nine years ago, mentioned that through wisdom and the concept of love and peace, we can find the best, most rapid, most beneficial, and correct way to facilitate UN reform and assist every country. It is the path for the UN and all countries to follow. It is evident that your kind words and good deeds will have a significant impact on the world’s sustainable future.

On this day of international reunion, various events are being held around the world, including in the United States and India, to commemorate the International Love and Peace Day. These events serve as the starting point of connecting and consolidating the power of love of the world as well as serving as a wake-up call for peace.  Only the awakening of conscience will lead to mankind’s salvation; only through cementing the positive energies of conscience, can the world overcome its current difficulties.

Let’s work hand in hand to spread positive energies and keep the butterfly effect going so as to create a world of love and peace.  Once again, thank you for your participation and great support of the movement of An Era of Conscience.

I wish you all good health, and much success in all your endeavors.  Thank you.
