Arun Gandhi is an internationally renowned nonviolent activist and scholar. During the lunch Arun will join Gary Alan Spanovich, Executive Director of the Wholistic Peace Institute and “Heart of Gold” peace prize winners, and audience in a discussion of the nonviolent philosophies and practices of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
Copies of his book will be available and he will sign copies, including his new children’s book Grandfather Gandhi and his autobiographical Legacy of Love: My Education in the Path of Nonviolence. Please come to this special lunch honoring world peacemaker Arun Gandhi; Our 2014 “Heart of Gold Peace Prize” winners; and the memory of Nobel Peace Prize winner Martin Luther King, Jr. Arun has a profound story about Dr. King visiting Mahatmas Ashram and sleeping on the floor of it and when he awoke the next morning told people Gandhi had visited him and his life was changed forever.
He also called Mahatma the “greatest Christian he had ever met”; for the way Mahatma lived his life. Arun will also talk about Mahatma’s view of meditation and silence; Arun once told me that Mahatma spoke often of hearing his “Still Small Voice of God” within and felt it was so important to hear the “Still Small Voice” that he devoted one full day of silence each week to listen within.
Don’t miss this important event and an opportunity to ask questions of Arun about all of this!
