Arun Gandhi to Deliver Message of Peace at Georgian Court University

Lessons from My Grandfather – Nonviolence in a Violent World

Lakewood, N.J., Mar. 25, 2015—Few names in world history evoke powerful images of integrity, courage, social harmony, and compassion as Gandhi. And few people understand the influence and responsibility of that name like Dr. Arun Gandhi, the 80-year-old grandson of legendary peace advocate and spiritual leader Mohandas ‘Mahatma’ Gandhi.

Gandhi,ArunDr. Arun Gandhi, a proponent of nonviolent activism for peace and social justice, will visit Georgian Court University Thursday, April 9, to share his riveting and unique reflections on the personal and historical legacy of his grandfather. This presentation will take place at 6:30 PM in the Casino auditorium on GCU’s Lakewood campus, and the cost to attend is $5 per person; the event is free to the GCU community with school ID. Reservations are required. Dr. Gandhi’s message echoes his grandfather’s timelessly relevant calls for understanding between adversaries, social harmony through communication and cooperation, the eradication of global poverty, peaceful interactions among nations, and nonviolence above all in the resolution of international conflicts, immigration debates, terrorism, and religious, political, and ideological differences that threaten our future as national and global citizens.

He is the founder of the Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute, which promotes community building in economically depressed areas of the world, and is the author several books, including Legacy of Love: My Education in the Path of Nonviolence (2003), Forgotten Woman: The Untold Story of Kastur Gandhi, Wife of Mahatma Gandhi (2008), and Grandfather Gandhi (2014). Through his writings and lectures Dr. Gandhi encourages all people to remember his grandfather’s sage wisdom to “Be the change you want to see in the world.” To reserve seating, contact the GCU Office of Conferences and Special Events at 732.987.2263 or e-mail specialevents@georgian.edu.
