Ravindra Varma is a learned scholar, who has been running the Institute of Gandhian Studies at Gopuri, Wardha for several years. He has been introducing the youth, especially the college students and post-graduates, to the life and message of Gandhiji. His knowledge, and his trying to live according to the Gandhian ideology gives depth to whatever he says or writes.
The Spiritual Basis of Satyagraha is the essence of the message that Gandhiji left for the generations to come. His philosophy of life and the deeper meaning of Satyagraha, non-violence, non-cooperation, truth and ahimsa are treated and revealed in such a way that for a reader it is a gradual unfolding of the inner layers of his own self and the shining light of Truth which Gandhiji personified. One should read this volume more than once to grasp deeper implications of all that Gandhiji stood for. Reading of the volume is like passing through a realm of spiritual experience.
