Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Who are we? Cast a glance at our logo to get a few clues! You will notice that it includes a spiral form. The spiral is one of the most basic shapes found in nature and one of the most ancient symbols of growth, change, and transformation. For the Mahatma Gandhi Center for Global Nonviolence it evokes the processes that lead outward, onward, and upward from conflict toward creativity and harmony.

The Gandhi Center is unique in its function as a global nonviolence hub, a quiet place for individual research that also hums with intellectual interaction, collaborative endeavors both internal and external, and public participation. In these ways and more, the Center contributes to the intellectual and creative life of the University and radiates new thinking across disciplines, into the classroom, and throughout the larger community.

I remember traveling to the border area in Kashmir more than 30 years ago, and being told it wasn't safe to go any further in the foothills of the mountains bordering India and Pakistan. It is amazing to ponder that peace has never come to that area still to this day. Thousands of families need help to recover a normal life...

I remember cancelled a trip to Sri Lanka because of security concerns, but know that families are starting to return home now that a peace accord has been reached. Thousands of families need help to recover a normal life.

I recall going to the border area in the tall mountains that China, Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Pakistan share, and having to have a guard travel with me to ensure my safety.

I recall traveling in the moiuntainous areas of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Krygyzstan, once again, during the time that 3 PeaceKeepers were killed, with their interpretor in Tajikistan.

The theme of the conference is an excellent one. It would be great to be able to one day think of the development opportunities for the local inhabitants that could be created by promoting international tourism in these areas....

hi,
Gandhian way of life is very adorable, I tried a numerous times to walk in Gandhian way, but my personal experiances are not good in this regard. How can I set the gandian philosophy in my thought where greed, selfishness, lust of power and other numerous bad things are scattered in the society ? How should I enrich my thought?

Gandhi's peace
was non violence
sedately he remained
calm in death
even when violated against.
His brutal murder.
