Description

Here are essays and reflections on Mahatma Gandhi, one of the outstanding personalities not only of our time but of all times.

Since Buddha, Gandhiji was the greatest moral force in Indian history. For the accomplishment of liberty, justice, and peace, he rediscovered the old techniques of Ahimsa and Satyagraha. He revealed to the masses a power not of rifles and machine guns, but the power innate in each individual, a power which this war-haunted world can exploit fully in making wars impossible.

Gandhiji’s whole life was an experiment with truth. His creed was the service of god, through that of humanity. To him God was Truth and Truth was God. His simplicity of manner was captivating. His devotion of duty was inexhaustible, sincerity of purpose infallible and sense of humour irresistible.

Those who read the different essays in this book will be impressed by the fundamental unity between Gandhiji’s theory and practice which is his challenge and message to the contemporary world. Some of Gandhiji’s most distinct and famous speeches are brought together in an appendix in this volume.
