Meeting Dr. A.T. Ariyaratne

On Thursday I got the great opportunity to meet Dr. A.T. Ariyaratne the founder of the Sarvodaya Shramadana Movement. I talked to him over one hour.
It was very inspiring and impressive to see him talk. Even though he is 84 years old, his mind is very clear and sharp. I felt as I would talk to Gandhiji. He is living his idea of combining Buddhist and Gandhian values as love and selflessness in absolute true way. His modesty and devotion to mankind is really unique in this world. He received the Gandhian Prize of peace for his lifetime dedication. I am so thankful to have met such a legend and great person who has served mankind!
