On 15 June, 2007 the United Nations declared October 2nd the International Day of Non- Violence! It is well known that this declaration was substantially inspired by the work of Mahatma Gandhi whose birth day falls on the day.
We are therefore, on one hand, joining the international community to “disseminate the message of non-violence.…” Also, we heartily join all those who cherish the life and times of Gandhi to commemorate his birthday and celebrate the resilient Spirit of modern India!
Mahatma Gandhi! The word “Mahatma” meaning “great soul” says it all. Be it in philosophy, spirituality, politics/statesmanship, or humaneness, Gandhi stood out as a highly evolved soul! In a previous anniversary post, (https://purplerays.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/mahatma-gandhi-the-apostle-of-non-violence/ , we extolled his virtues and the relevance of his principles to even modern-day life! Today as we shout out “Happy GANDHI JAYANTI” to all, we would like to reflect on one of his vintage quotes:

“You must not lose faith in humanity.
Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty,
the ocean does not become dirty.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
