"Expand your vision and see that inside every culprit, there is a victim crying for help. That person is also a victim of ignorance, small-mindedness and lack of awareness. It's the stress, lack of understanding, lack of broad vision about life, and bad communication that leads to violence in society."
- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, IAHV Founder
