Humankind Special: The Power of Nonviolence
Mohandas Gandhi, the great spiritual leader from India, famously observed: "An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind." History proves over and over that violence breeds more violence. Victims are traumatized by brutality - as are perpetrators. We see this playing out in the current epidemic of violence here and abroad. The Power of Nonviolence, a timely new public radio project from Humankind, seeks deep solutions to this vexing problem. We turn to wisdom teachings across our great spiritual traditions for guidance - and inspiration - on how the lasting wounds can be healed.
