Arun Gandhi at Peru State

Arun Gandhi

On Tuesday, March 22, Arun Gandhi spoke at Peru State College as part of the college's Distinguished Speakers' Series.

This year's speakers  also included  Little Rock Nine member Minnie-Jean Brown and former skinhead Frank Meeink.

The grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, Arun Gandhi continues to spread his grandfather's philosophy of nonviolence.  

He remains committed to his grandfather's legacy in this regard and in 1991 founded the  M. H. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence located in Rochester, New York.

As the collected photographs from his visit to Peru State College indicated, Arun Gandhi filled the Peru State Theater with his message of love that reinforced the institutes's triple imperative:  Educate, Embody, and Serve.

Mr. Gandhi gave me permission to film sections of his presentation, and you can view the video.  And as a quick look on the internet indicates, many links lead to speeches and interviews.   

This particular one, in case you did not have a chance to hear his presentation, this fifty-five minute talk parallels the wisdom he shared on Tuesday evening.
