  • Dr. Rabindranath Tagore, a noble laureate from India, has said, "Power said to the world I want you there was silence, Love said to the world I am yours and she submitted." Manu Raval is a life-long student of the Sanskrit language and its scriptural and secular literature, the yogic traditions, and comparative religion, literature, and philosophy. As an activist during India's struggle for independence, Manu was President of the Student Union at the University of Bombay and a proponent of Mahatma Gandhi's teachings. He has authored many articles, organized and participated in seminars and symposia on industry, commerce and trade, political matters and debates, social issues and topics, and has published letters and articles in the Times of India, Indian Express, the Denver Post, and many other newspapers and periodicals. He has lectured widely on the Vedas, Vedanta, BhagavadGita, Pantanjal Yoga Sutram, Gandhi's life and work, ancient Indian and world civilizations, and history and religions, and has participated in numerous interfaith councils, conferences, and discussions. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    We create our reality. We live in the IDEAL of wealthy men that wish to continue there way of life and stunt the growth of peaceful revolution/evolution. By practicing Ahimsa or nonviolence we create a world in which we no longer need “leadership”. We transform ourselves therefore transforming each other. I repeat “we create our reality”. If people knew the power that we have and left there traditions at the door we could have a HUGE breakthrough.

    I practise living like this and always have. It seems that people would rather be fighting. Why.
