Our Inspiration

Nearly sixty years ago when there was violence in America, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. took a five-week journey to India in 1959

to deepen his understanding of the nonviolence teachings of Mahatma Gandhi.

 
I left India more convinced than ever before that the method of nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to people in their struggle for freedom and human dignity. As a result of the trip, my understanding of nonviolence is greater and my commitment deeper.
— -Rev Martin Luther King Jr.

“I am going back from India, with such deep knowledge about the self. The meditation exercises have helped me release negative thoughts. There is an inner strength inside us.
We need to cultivate that.”
