A great teacher appears once in a while. Several centuries may pass by without the advent of such a one. That by which he is known is his life. He first lives and then tells others how they make live likewise. Such a teacher was Gandhi.
These Sections from his speeches and writings compiled with great care and
discrimination by Shri Krishna Kripalani will give the reader some idea of the
workings of Gandhi's mind, the growth of his thoughts and the practical
techniques which he adopted.
Gandhi's life was rooted in India's religious tradition with its emphasis on a passionate search for truth, a pro- found reverence for life, the ideal of non-attachment and the readiness to sacrifice all for the knowledge of God. He lived his whole life in the perpetual quest of truth: 'I live and move and have my being in the pursuit of this goal.'
