“How do you expect to bring peace to the world if there’s no peace within you?”
To me, nonviolence is the highest form of unconditional love and transformation. As you become nonviolent in your own life, you’ll inspire others to do the same.
About the TEDX talk
“If you want to change the world, you must first change yourself.” It’s a cliché and it’s true! But changing yourself is no simple task in the face of death, divorce, depression, self-harm, and war. In 2002, Sadhvi Siddhali Shree enlisted in the California Army National Guard looking for discipline, and instead found herself training to shoot & kill strangers. Today, she’s an Iraq-war combat veteran, Jain monk, and teacher of non-violence. In this talk, she’ll teach you why and how to practice non-violence in your life.
