Mohatma Ghandi is a true inspiration for the power of Being Peaceful Change and the value of a meditation practice.
At the start of one especially busy day, Gandhi said, "I have so much to accomplish today that I must meditate for two hours instead of one."
Gandhi told a group of visitors a few months before his death, "I am certain that if we want to bring about peace in the world, there is no other way except that of nonviolence.”
Center for Contemplation "Being Peaceful Change" Per John Dear: "for Gandhi, nonviolence meant not just refraining from physical violence interpersonally and nationally, but refraining from the inner violence of the heart as well. It meant the practice of active love toward one’s oppressors and enemies in the pursuit of justice, truth, and peace."
