"Exploring the many faces of the Spiritual Activist"

Why we are all challenged to be Spiritual Activists today? If we want an improved society, then all of us are called to play some role in having this come about, as the many problems which we all face in the world at this moment, will not somehow magically be healed unless millions of us all over the world find our own way of contributing to the process. And age must not be an excuse for doing nothing!
