Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr visited the Gandhi family in India in 1959, and he went on to dedicate himself to the principles of non-violence

On August 28, 1963, from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, he delivered one of the greatest speeches of the 20th century to over two hundred and fifty thousand civil rights supporters;

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King Jr.III, Arun Gandhi

 

An Amazing Moment !

Arun Gandhi. His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Martin Luther King Jr III on the same platform at the same time for the first time .... what a memorable moment for these three amazing men and for the 10,000+ Washington DC audience! A suprise trio even to His Holiness to celebrate the Nobel Laureate's 76th birthday.

 Let us truly, deeply, authentically occupy the dream, the dream of a world that works for all life, where each and everyone of us is a shining star in a constellation of love. “Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

― Martin Luther King Jr.

Dalai Lama and Clay at King Institute

 

 

At a fundamental level, as human beings, we are all the same; each one of us aspires to happiness and each one of us does not wish to suffer. This is why, whenever I have the opportunity, I try to draw people's attention to what as members of the human family we have in common and the deeply interconnected nature of our existence and welfare.

America, the richest and most powerful nation in the world, can well lead the way in this revolution of values. There is nothing, except a tragic death wish, to prevent us from reordering our priorities, so that the pursuit of peace will take precedence over the pursuit of war.  (MLK)

 

44 years later, where are our priorities?
