Anuvibha

 

 

Rajsamand, Rajasthan

 

Anuvrat Global Organization, also known as Anuvrat Vishva Bharati in Hindi with its widely publicized acronym 'Anuvibha', is a non-profit socio-cultural organization dedicated to peace and nonviolent action.

It seeks to popularize the Anuvrat Movement which attempts to cultivate self-discipline among the people by persuading them to commit themselves to the observance of small or basic vows (anuvrats) embedded in ahimsa or nonviolence. 'Anu' means small or basic and vrat means a vow. It is the only movement of its kind in the world that seeks to rejuvenate moral and spiritual values through individual commitment to certain basic human values-the degeneration of which is at the root of violence, hatred, religious fundamentalism and conflicts that mark the world today.

Founded in 1983 mainly to carry the message of Anuvrat beyond the frontiers of India, Anuvibha has steadily grown in size and stature. It has created a worldwide network of thousands of people spread in many countries, who like us, believe that all conflicts should be resolved through nonviolent actions. One of its aims is to extend support to U. N. and its agencies in their endeavor to achieve world peace. We are pleased to announce that Anuvibha has officially been approved by United Nations for association with its Department of Public Information.

Anuvibha's registered office as well as its international center is at Jaipur. At Rajsamand near Udaipur, Rajasthan it maintains Vishva Shanti Nilayam (Global Peace Palace) dedicated to children and lovers of peace and ahimsa (nonviolence).

The three important projects being organized at Rajsamand are : Balodaya which imparts training to children in basic values of life and ahimsa in a natural environment, Rashtriya Anuvrat Shikshak Sansad, a National Parliament of Teachers committed to Anuvrat (basic values) which infuses into children a desire to live the good life and Gramoday which works for improving the quality of life in villages. The Global Peace Palace at Rajsamand is situated on top of a hill overlooking a lake called Rajsamand which is also the name of the district. It lies sixty kilometers away from Udaipur.
