Arun Gandhi delivers the 2015 Sacro Lecture

Sacro was delighted and honoured to have Arun Gandhi deliver the 2015 Sacro Lecture.

Arun Gandhi is the fifth grandson of India’s legendary leader, Mohandas K. “Mahatma” Gandhi. Arun's grandfather taught him to understand nonviolence through understanding violence. “If we know how much passive violence we perpetrate against one another we will understand why there is so much physical violence plaguing societies and the world,” Gandhi said. Through daily lessons, Arun says, he learned about violence and about anger.
