A nice article from AOL’s press bureau:
As the world observes the International Day of Non-Violence on October 2 to
in time when the world needs his ideals of non-violence and peace more than ever.
This philosophy has been welcomed with open arms in even war-ravaged Iraq. Often
he reminds the world that it is through non-violence that India got independence
from the only superpower of the time not so long ago. “Mahatma Gandhi brought
freedom with the same principle of truth and non-violence. We can apply the same
to all the conflicts zones of the world,” is his appeal.
On his public addresses around the globe, Sri Sri has been emphasizing the need for
inculcating a culture of non-violence. “Violence is neither our true nature nor the
basis of any civilisation. However, of late there has been a tendency to attach pride
in being violent and aggressive. We need to bring back the pride in being non-
violent,” he says.
Sri Sri believes that “Unless every member of our global family is peaceful, our
peace is incomplete.” As Gandhi did to win freedom for India, Sri Sri is spreading the
weapon of non-violence to free the world from stress and violence.
