    The difference it made in the prisoners lives! Yes! I spent 16 years inside - going in as a 15 year old juvenile. Wish this had been available for me! Would love to take this inside America's prisons where it is not already available. Kissing The Dirt .net is a prisoner advocacy group seeking to build bridges between free society and those incarcerated.

    I am a Vipassana practitioner and understand its changing effects on mind and soul. It is the best way to change mind against negative emotions and therefore best for reformation of jail inmates or any revengeful mind.

    This is very nobel. I respect Dr Kiran Bedi wholeheartedly. To see all human as a soul irrespective of their deed require a very big heart. She certainly has it. May gob bless her.
