what is the home of nonviolence and what will it constitute?
The HOME OF NONVIOLENCE is "the safe neutral space for different parties to discuss their problems" as spelled oout in our MISSION STATEMENT. Further it is a place for all religions and faith, where a space for all religions, faiths and beliefs would be provided that could equip itself with all resource of its relgions so that people from other faith could visit this space to gain knowledge about that religion. In this HOME OF NONVIOLENCE there would be one common space without any religious symbls but a place for performing any religious prayers, sermons, duties etc and that would be opent oa ll without any religious or any other barrier. This would provide an opportunity for people of other religions to learn about the religious performance of the others and begin to build and show respect to the beliefs of others. Also this HOME OF NONVIOLENCE will be a place for interfaith dialogue in order to identify the similarities and differences in each others faith and to learn from each other, in a nonviolent manner. From this HOME OF NONVIOLENCE there will spring out the teachings of Nonviolence of all religions, beliefs and faiths.

The HOME OF NONVIOLENCE would be constructed to suit a unique nonviolent atmosphere where different types of people can sit in common without feeling any differences. It goes with the saying
" I like a tree where different kids of birds can nest". This is what we want to achieve through this HOME OF NONVIOLENCE.

Ideally it would be nice to have a separate place only for this HOME OF NONVIOLENCE. Due to scarcity of a suitable land that we could get without any cost, either from the government or from elsewhere , it would be most suitable to combine the different needs that we currently have in one place and gradually separate once we get established. As such this HOME OF NONVIOLENCE will also accomodate THE SCHOOL OF NONVIOLENCE and the SAMADANA/M Office and the Resource Centre.

We have already purchased a piece of land to the extent of 20 perches in Tekkewatta in the village of Tennekumbura in Kandy, Sri Lanka. The next step is to draw out the plan for the HOME OF NONVIOLENCE complex, get the necessary approval and start the work of construction. It is estimated that the project would cost around 500,000 Euros.
the school of nonviolence
Today from many schools there are reports related to violence conflicts. These occur between the students, between the students and teachers and sometimes between the students and the community. Some of the end up as major issues and becomes violence in the community.

It is these students who end up at universities. Today in universities there are many cases of conflicts that are reported ending up with violence. Some of those who get engaged in these conflicts end up with their life.

THE SCHOOL OF NONVIOLENCE aims to bring up children who would be able to study under a nonviolent atmosphere from their pre-school level. They will be exposed to nonviolent games, nonviolent songs and the nonviolent way of handling conflicts. They would get an opportunity to practice nonviolent communication in their day to day life, the nonviolent economic dealings and be learning the art of nonviolent development. They would follow the normal school curriculum under a total nonviolent atmosphere with creativity towards a nonviolent society.

ALSO this School of Nonviolence would provided courses and Diplomas in the study of Nonviolence focused on Development, Economics, Moral Values, Spirituality, Lifestyle, Business ethics and many aspect that would be necessary to develop a nonviolent society. The school also would offer courses and training programmers in peace building and conflict resolution / transformation / management based on total nonviolence.
