Do No Harm

This session introduces non-violence as an aspect of goodness which is integrally connected with justice. While children are more ready to understand the expressions of violence and non-violence than the inner conditions that create these expressions, this session address both inner spiritual peacefulness as well as peaceful relationships within the world. As suggested by the 1948 quotation from Mohandas Gandhi which opens this session, you cannot have one peace without the other.


Take Home:

Today we explored non-violence and how it is connected with justice.

Watch a movie: Watch “Gandhi” (as appropriate), paying attention to how Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence is displayed in his personal life as well as public practice.

Discuss: Talk about ways that both violence and non-violence are used in society. Which is more helpful?
