Arun Gandhi received daily, one-hour, one-to-one education sessions with his grandfather, “Mahatma” Mohandas K. Gandhi, for nearly eighteen months irrespective of the “Mahatma’s” own very full schedule. The lessons learnt still guide Arun’s life and his activism in his role as “Peace Farmer,” planting seeds for personal and global transformation. Arun has been sharing these “Lessons from My Grandfather” around the world for many years.
Arun has regularly participated in the Renaissance Weekend deliberations with President Clinton and other well-respected Rhodes Scholars. He has spoken on numerous occasions at the United Nations and is a regular collaborator with the Martin Luther King Centre of Atlanta.
The recipient of seven honorary doctorates, Mr. Gandhi is a board member of the Nelson Mandela's Children's Hospital in South Africa, a Trustee of the Parliament of the World's Religions and President of the Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute. He addresses and encourages ethical leadership while building a culture of peace and nonviolence. He shares inspirational and motivational approaches in support of his grandfather’s charge to “be the change.”
