The International Non-Violence Day is marked on 2 October, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi (Bapu), leader of the Indian independence movement and pioneer of the philosophy and strategy of non-violence.
According to General Assembly resolution A/RES/61/271 of 15 June 2007, which established the commemoration, the International Day is an occasion to “disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness”. The resolution reaffirms “the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence” and the desire “to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding, and non-violence”.
Let’s look at the non-violence quotes from the Top leaders.
“The first principle of non-violent action is that of non-cooperation with everything humiliating.”
“We do not need guns and bombs to bring peace, we need love and compassion.”
“Live simply so others may simply live”
“Non-violence is a powerful and just weapon, which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.
“Non-violence is the summit of bravery.”
“The ultimate way to solve human problems is with non-violence.”
– Dalai Lama
