Description

This is certainly a book which is more than a book presenting the quintessence of Gandhiji's thought and philosophy and reads like a new Gita, a new Bible.

This revised and enlarged edition incorporates Gandhiji's thoughts during 1946-48, the crucial last years of his life and work. It is a faithful, authentic and comprehensive presentation of the mind of one who has been described as the greatest Indian since Gautama the Buddha and the greatest man since Jesus Christ and as the greatest man of the 20th century.

MEDIA COMMENTS:

Easily the best compendium on Gandhism that has yet been produced. - - The Times of India

A golden treasury of Gandhian thought and literature, fresh and original, in whose pages there emerges the man, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. - - The News Review

Of Gandhiji's versatile mind and wide range of interest the volume provides a fine epitome. - - The Hindu

To many it will have the value of a new Bible or a new Gita; for here are words that have come out from the depth of truth, here is tireless striving that stretches its arms towards perfection. - - The Visvabharti Quarterly

The compilers have rendered a distinct service to the country and the world in placing in their hands what can appropriately be called a modern Upanishad. - - The Aryan Path
