Gandhi Jayanthi

Remembering Gandhi (1869 - 1948) ...

A pioneer of Satyagraha, or resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience — a philosophy firmly founded upon Ahimsa, or
total nonviolenceGandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.

His birthday, 2nd October, is celebrated in India as Gandhi Jayanthi, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day
of Non-Violence.

The International Day is an occasion to "disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness". The resolution reaffirms "the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence" and the desire "to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and non-violence".

Nonviolence is the essence of all religions

"A nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people."
