More than 30 world-renowned speakers joined the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, Pennsylvania, for the Sacred Link Freedom from Fear conference. Topics ranging from personal growth to world affairs to sustainable ecology were presented and recorded live. This lecture is among those offered.
United Nations Civilian Police Advisor Dr. Kiran Bedi is the first and highest-ranking woman in the Indian Police Service. She is the founder and president of Navjyoti and the Indian Vision Foundation.
This lecture was recorded live at the Himalayan Institute in Pennsylvania, in 2004, at a conference entitled Freedom from Fear. The lecture is called "Self-Policing", and in it speaker Kiran Bedi talks about the idea of self-governance. She tells her story of being a prison guard in the police force of India, and what this assignment taught her about knowing and "policing" the self before attempting to police others. Bedi is a fascinating speaker, with a unique perspective to share. She speaks eloquently, her north Indian accent making English into a delicate and musical language. Although her subject is a philosophical one, she sprinkles anecdotes and jokes into her speech so that listeners will find themselves laughing along with the live audience.
