Description

"As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world but in being able to remake ourselves" ~ Mahatma Gandhi

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth, New Acropolis Ottawa (along with several New Acropolis centres across the world) would like to honour the memory and legacy of Mahatma Gandhi. He has inspired millions of people around the globe, including Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama.

How did Mohandas Gandhi, a young man who was shy and battered by failures, become Mahatma Gandhi: one of the greatest spiritual idealists and leaders that the world has ever seen?

What was the source of his knowledge and how did he use this knowledge to transform himself into a warrior of peace? How was he able to integrate the ideals of truth, love and service into his everyday life?

Join us for a lecture about Gandhi's inner transformation and let's discover together how we can all awaken the spiritual idealist within and begin the journey of the real and sustainable change we want to see in the world today!

Please note:

  • Out of respect for those in attendance, doors will close at 7:00 pm.

  • The event is being held in the Honeywell Room.

  • For questions about the event, contact us at 613-914-3456 or at ottawa@newacropolis.ca


Guest Speaker -

Parth Doshi was born in Mumbai, India. Even though Parth was raised in a Jain community, from a young age, his outlook on life was more spiritual and philosophical than religious. Throughout his life, his search for wisdom on how to live life with depth and meaning never left his side, no matter where he was - his early years in India, travelling internationally at the age of 13 and competing in the sport of Squash, getting his degree at the prestigious Williams College in MA, USA and IT consulting in Boston.

In 2007 he met New Acropolis in Boston and immediately discovered his passion for applied Philosophy as a path to give meaning to everything we do and make a sustainable change in oneself and in the world. This led to him discover the life and wisdom of Gandhi from the lens of Gandhi's inner transformation, so essential and relevant for all of us today.

Professionally, Parth continues IT consulting and is also an instructor and Director of New Acropolis in Toronto.
