Gandhi, a Spiritual Journey
Indus Source, 2007 - 199 páginas
This book explores the spiritual transformation of Mohandas Gandhi to the Mahatma. Beginning with his childhood and his desire to search for the Truth from an early age, it explores the influence of western thought on the young lawyer, leading to an inner conflict that drew him to the study of comparative religion. Gandhi came to believe in the equality of all religions and the principles of Truth and non-violence which he applied to every aspect of life, including politics. In his later years he found focus and direction, understanding the importance of prayer and discipline. As the Mahatma, his life exemplified spiritual practice and Truth. Leading India to freedom through satyagraha, he revealed the importance and relevance of non-violence in every aspect of life.
