Maintaining peace of mind, peace of heart and peace in the world during these troubled times requires some attention. People are pursuing happiness by deceit, betraying trust, and exploitation, and discovering—but not realizing—that their pleasure is only fleeting and that their methods cause degradation of society and long-term misery for themselves (and others too). People have forgotten the connection between happiness and right-ness ("dharma," doing what is right), and many are confused about what is right even though we feel it inside. This little Prescription for Peace offers practical steps for anyone, anywhere, of any persuasion, to the inner peace that is natural to a just humanity.
Print-on-demand publishers have been unable to print this little 3-5/8 x 5-1/4 book correctly, so it has been recorded in short videos and audios.
Presenting Prescription for Peace to His Excellency Sri Hansraj Bhardwaj, Governor of Karnataka, Bangalore, July 2009
The content of these presentations has been garnered through observation, contemplation, hopefully insight, and, most importantly, experience. Ideas and assertions are simply presented for consideration. The effort is not to prove or convince, but rather to present ideas for one’s own thought, research, innate common sense, and experience.
References are included only if information is specific and may not be generally known. No offense whatsoever is taken at any disagreement or counter-assertion. Many disagreements are due to semantics. Take whatever is useful and ignore the rest. If something fits and is useful, wonderful!

The brilliant spectrum in the banner is the closest representation of the absolute joy of a realm of which I have memory since childhood. No one owns the spectrum. It is used here because of its joy.
In case it seems that it took a lot of work to create these multi-media presentations, it was negligible compared to acquiring the inner-standing required to write the content.
