Dada Maheshvarananda, a monk, activist, and author of the book, After Capitalism: Economic Democracy in Action is on a national book tour and he has two stops in the DC area. In his book, he "explains how social crises are interlinked with personal consciousness, suggesting that finding inner peace is crucial to the struggle for peace and justice. His practical ideas are grounded in a new socio-economic model based on local, sustainable economies, social justice and environmental protection."

"Today a powerful few control most of the world’s wealth, while most people work harder than ever, earn less, are forced from job to job, and fall into debt. In contrast, emerging, independent local economies of small businesses, cooperatives and public utilities are building careers and meaningful futures for individuals and communities."

About the speaker: "Dada Maheshvarananda, born in the US, is an activist, writer, and monk. Since 1978 he has taught meditation and yoga and supervised social service projects, in Southeast Asia, South America and Europe. His recent book, "After Capitalism: Prout's Vision for a New World", has been published in 10 languages. He has given hundreds of seminars and workshops around the world about social issues and spiritual values. In October 2006 he opened the Prout Research Institute of Venezuela, which he directs." Dada will also be a featured speaker at the Economic Democracy Conference in Madison, Wisconsin October 11th-14th.
