Inaugural Session of the Gandhi Initiative

The Gandhi initiative was formally inaugurated on Saturday May 10, 2014 by Dr.Michael Nagler(Professor Emeritus at UC Berkley, the founder of Metta center for Non-violence) by lighting the traditional lamp of Kerala. He also held an interactive session.

We visited the tranquil and transformative ashram and the memorial of Eknath Easwaran at the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation.

I followed it up with a visit to Dr.Myron Lunine, Gandhian scholar and Professor Emeritus at SFSU on Sunday who provided encouragement and invaluable inputs for this initiative. Dr.Lunine at present is teaching a course on Gandhian studies at SFSU.

I should also report that I had met Dr.Dennis Dalton, Professor Emeritus at Columbia University.

I look forward to organizing more activities, talks and other programs soon. Thank you all for your support !
