|WHAT:||Awakin Circles bring together small groups of people in living rooms around the world. In Chennai, we've hosted such circles once in a while and are thrilled to be hosting a dear guest this month.
On Thursday, Dec 14th, 2017, we're delighted to host a circle with Nipun Mehta.
About the Speaker: At the age of 25, Nipun Mehta quit his job to become a "full time volunteer." He is the founder of ServiceSpace, an all volunteer-run organization using technology to inspire greater volunteerism. What started as an experiment with friends is now a global ecosystem of over 500,000 members who have delivered millions of dollars in service for free. Their projects include DailyGood, KarmaTube, KindSpring and KarmaKitchen -- and has garnered Dalai Lama's Unsung Hero of Compassion award and more recently, President Obama's appointment on a council to address poverty and inequality. What started as his personal journey into meditation and service has now rippled to millions around the globe, as he has tirelessly addressed hundreds of gatherings in person. Very inspired by Gandhi, Nipun reflects on his walking pilgrimage across India and articulates a "Gandhi 3.0" possibility of bridging the "inner net and Internet." His mission statement in life reads: "Bring smiles in the world and stillness in my heart."
