We've made the New Year's resolutions and now we struggle to keep them, dealing with feelings of denying ourselves some pleasure. Gandhi observed 11 vows, as did his followers, that he believed cultivated ahimsa, nonviolence, in their community. His vows were no easier to keep then our resolutions, so how did he do it? He called it "joyous renunciation" and approached each vow by recognizing its liberating power. We will look at his vows and discuss their application to America 2009.
