Indian activist to discuss philosophy of non-violence and peace

Arya Bhushan Bhardwaj

In a time of global protest, Arya Bhushan Bhardwaj’s nonviolent resistance philosophy has been widely respected across the world. The international activist will share inspiring stories of the struggle for world peace as a part of the Distinguished Lecture Series June 28 at the University Union, Lyceum.

The opening reception will begin at 6 p.m. with the lecture following at 7 p.m. Bhardwaj’s lecture, Satyagraha: The Nature of Slavery and the Path Toward a Credible World Peace, will examine Gandhian tactics and the struggle for international cooperation.

Bhardwaj is best known for embracing a Gandhian way of life, a reference to the Mohandas K. Gandhi, leader of the 1940s Indian nationalist movement.  

Bhardwaj founded Gandhi-in-Action, an organization of activists devoted to nonviolence in New Delhi in 1987. Through this international group, Bhardwaj has traveled to 26 countries, written 13 books and authored more than 100 news articles for newspapers throughout the world. Bhardwaj also founded the Center for Study and Research on Alternative Medicine.

In 2000, he received a bachelor’s degree in curative education at Camphill Schools of Rudolph Steiner in Scotland, specializing in therapies to help physically and mentally handicapped children and adults. Bhardwaj also studied at the Mahatma Gandhi National Academy of Naturopathy. His expertise also encompasses ancient Indian martial arts, marma therapy (the study of energy in the body) and ayurvedic medicine, or holistic healing that emphasizes the connection between physical and mental health.
