As you may know that more the society develops, more the conflicts increase
continuously, often leading to tension and violence. Finally if the violence
persists, it leads to the war as witnessed in our history of mankind.

         In Thai society, people do not know clearly what the accurate
meaning of NON-VIOLENCE (AHIMSA) is although there are teachings in many
religions and examples from some outstanding world leaders such as Mahatma
Gandhi people referred to. His way of Ahimsa is therefore often
misunderstood and acted wrongly. That is why the conflicts always end up
with violence and losses which should not occur in a country of Buddhists,
like in Thailand and anywhere in the world.

         Therefore, on the occasion of Gandhi’s birthday as the
International Day of Non-violence on 2nd October, as declared by the UN, the
Centre for Bharat Studies, Research Institute for Languages and Cultures of
Asia in collaboration with International School for Jain Studies (ISJS) and
Sanskrit Studies Centre, Silpakorn University will organize a seminar on
“Social Harmony through Non-violence (Ahimsa)” on Friday, 1st October, 2010
for creating public awareness and dissemination of  the right concept of
Non-violence to the public to show how it can help solve the conflicts for
social harmony through Non-violence (Ahimsa) from various perspectives.
