Spinning Wheel Birthday: An MP3 from the Metta Center


Also see last year’s offering from the Metta Center about Charkha Jayanti.

October 2nd marks Gandhi’s birthday, which he wanted to be known as “‘Spinning Wheel’ (charkha) Birthday”. In the following, short 6 minute MP3 clip, Metta Center Director Stephanie Van Hook talks with Gandhi scholar Michael Nagler. He explains why Gandhi designated his birthday in this way and explores some of the key strategic insights that the spinning wheel and constructive program reveal about how nonviolence is successful. This MP3 will be included in a longer series we are currently producing on Gandhi’s legacy.
