Mahatma Gandhi is greatly respected as one who championed non-violent action. He re-wrote the meaning of forgiveness, non-violence and love by adopting peaceful means to fight for rights.

With peace as a weapon of action, with forgiveness as a means towards love, he defeated violence and fought for the freedom of the oppressed and marginalized communities under British rule in India and in South Africa. The meaning of peace is to offer happiness.

He stared at peace and his actions depicted forgiveness and love. He wrote how violence produced complexity in life. He understood the meaning of peace and freedom.

He did his best to lead life towards reality, towards forgiveness, peace and co-existence. The burden of looking after others falls on a soldier. He was a hero. In fact, achieving freedom and peace is a difficult journey and this journey is infinite. It was that he had wished to be a prestigious and successful person but worked to bring light in the life of many. Life and peace means to struggle and he struggled in poverty and in difficult situations.

He spent many years fighting for his nation, for social justice and civil rights. He was a kind-hearted person who dreamt about many things in life -- a peaceful nation, non-violent action and independence.

I pray to God that he comes into our lives again to give us the courage to face the world in times of war and growing terrorist activities. I feel sad and disturbed when I see innocent children being killed.

When I walk past walls, billboards and crowds, I question peace and justice in today's world and look for meaning in Gandhi's actions that could perhaps help diffuse current conflicts. To feel hatred and disbelief towards war and terrorism and escape it all by not understanding myself is my weakness.

Gandhi's philosophy of justice and equality can lead the path towards peace. I see birds flying high in the far distance. They have a definite destination. Gandhi also had a definite goal and purpose. He will always be revered and respected as the "Peace Man."

Live performance feat. Mahatma Gandhi's original voice

Like to tell you about my experience performing the "Gandhi Program" multi media live performance feat. Mahatma Gandhi's original voice and original film sequencesat the Music 4 Peace concert in the Himalaya in Nepal.The concert was on Gandhi's Birthday after the war in Nepal, so I was not sure if Gandhi's message of Peace was welcomed (because India is like Nepal's big brother and competitor...) but we got the permission to do the concert and the Nepali audience was welcoming Gandhi's message of tolerance and peace.In the live video you can see a poor street boy (there are many street kids in the Kathmandu valley), he came to sit on the stage and wile listening to the "Gandhi Program" he was falling to sleep. This touched my as I imagined that he was feeling home wile listening to my music.The Gandhi ProgramA special multi media performance using unreleased archival audio and video footage of Mahatma Gandhi. This Program comes with the blessing of Dr. Arun Gandhi, co-founder of the International Institute for Non-Violence and grandson of the late Mahatma Gandhi. 1001 Ways lunched the Gandhi Tour with the “Gandhi Program” at Earthdance Peace Festival in California.
