Mahatma Gandhi?s Grandson to visit East Bay
Sunday, June 27, 2004, 3:oo to 5:oo p.m.
ARUN GANDHI ON LOVE and NON-VIOLENCE
Arun Gandhi is an inspiration and a personal embodiment of his Grandfather?s ageless wisdom and teachings of love and non-violence. In our time of war and fear, he will offer a different view that can lead to true and lasting peace.
Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, has followed in his grandfather?s footsteps by teaching the principles of non-violence. In 1991, he and his wife, Sunanda, founded The M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, based in Memphis, Tennessee. The Institute?s mission is ?to promote and apply the principles of nonviolence locally, nationally and globally, to prevent violence and resolve personal and public conflicts through research, education and programming.?
Arun Gandhi travels the world, passing on the wisdom he learned from his grandfather as well as from his own experience, teaching people how to apply the principles of non-violence in their daily lives. Tireless in his efforts to heal individuals and communities, Arun Gandhi is the embodiment of the phrase his grandfather coined, ?We must be the change we wish to see.?
