"The world is so interesting, I tell you!" Sri Sri (as he is known) writes on his Web site. "So, be in this world, enjoy the world without getting caught up or drowned in it. Keep yourself a little aloof. Keep yourself untouched by the external (events). Save your soul, save your mind, save your spirit and save your joy. Don't let it get muddled up by the events in the world."
The happening -- which takes place Thursday, March 28 at 7:30 p.m. -- is part of a national effort to "generate one billion acts of non-violence through pledges online and in person."
There'll also be entertainment from The Voices, speeches from various pols (Danny Davis and Jan Schakowsky, to name a couple) and lots of social activists on hand to help rally around the cause.
