I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent. - MK Gandhi

One of our amazing volunteers Carla Shohet shared a touching story - "Flyering today in Harlem, I approached a man to tell him about the launch event for NONVIO in NYC. He stopped to talk and was genuinely interested and said, "But I just got out from prison 2 days ago. Can I still come?" I said "Of course. Will you pledge to do an act of non violence for one day, a week or 30 days?" With strong conviction, he replied,"No, Forever. #iamnonvio

A movement to answer every act of violence with 100 acts of Non-Violence. Together we will reach a Billion acts of Non-Violence. There is No Higher Calling!
Introduction
We dedicate ourselves to a peace so profound that it inspires everything we do: from the games we play, to the words we speak, to the way we relate to ourselves and our neighbors. We are offering the world a new vision of peace. Now, more than ever, we need the courage and compassion to believe, and live, and love, and work, as men and women of non-violence.There is No Higher Calling!

Attend the Launch Events as, H. H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, one of today's leading voices for Non-Violence, visits the United States from March 23-April 5, 2013.

The NON-VIOLENCE: NO HIGHER CALLING movement is powered by the Art of Living Foundation, a non-profit organization that carries on H. H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s mission to create a stress-free, violence-free planet through transformational personal development programs and global service projects in over 150 countries world-wide (www.artofliving.org).
