      Invitation to LMU Conference "Spiritual Warriors: (Non)Violence in the Sikh & Jain Traditions" Feb 23-24



      This conference will explore the spiritual-political nexus of violence and non-violence in the Jain and Sikh traditions through the concept of the "spiritual warrior." The Jain practices of ahimsa (nonviolence) and Sikh practices of seva (selfless service) promote care for and protection of all others through conquering self-centered desires and behavior. However, they differ in their approaches with Jain monks and nuns avoiding harm to others at all costs and Sikhs known historically as warriors who defend those in need against injustice. Their competing and complementary narratives and practices have the potential to radically inform contemporary struggles by offering dynamic paths to ethical engagement with all life.
      Please note that the conference day (Friday, Feb 24, 9am-5pm) is invite only, and this is your official invite.  The evening talks (Feb 23 & 24) are open to the public.
      Please Register:

      All events will be held in Ahmanson Auditorium in University Hall  (Room 1000) on the Loyola Marymount University Campus. The events are Free (though you will have to pay for parking until 8pm.)
