See also

The Season for Nonviolence begins with recognizing the day of assassination of Mahatma Ghandi, January 30 and ends with the day of assassination of Martin Luther King jr., April 4th Every year these 64 days are marked to consciously raise the awareness of the power of peace and the power of peace filled actions. This is Satyagraha. Introduced in the early 20th century by Mahatma Gandhi in a desire to be in harmony without “winning or losing" it is a time to consciously practice truth and right action in the spirit of peace and love. Choosing acts of civil disobedience over war and physical violence, proved to be an effective instrument for change. The rise in consciousness over the majority thinking of the time, began the basic structures for human rights and cast changes in the country of India. Adopted by Martin Luther King jr., this nonviolent type of protest was the major demonstration for change in the civil rights movement in the USA. For this King is most noted and a day of celebrating his birthday is observed on the third Monday of January every year.

Ghandi’s philosophy, “Be the change you want to see” puts the power of peace on the individual. If I want love, “be love” If I want peace, “be peace” As the quest to live the principles that support unity and a world that works for everyone continues, seek an affiliation with The Seasonof NonViolence programmers in your community or as it is convened by the international, Association of Global New Thought (AGNT)

As we continue to seek harmony in our day to day and live in a non-violent way, remember Satyagraha, truth, peace and fairness for all.
