Mohandas K. Gandhi, called Mahatma (“great soul”), was the father of modern India, but his influence has spread well beyond the subcontinent and is as important today as it was in the first part of the twentieth century and during this nation’s own civil rights movement. Taken from Gandhi’s writings throughout his life, The Essential Gandhi introduces us to his thoughts on politics, spirituality, poverty, suffering, love, non-violence, civil disobedience, and his own life. The pieces collected here, with explanatory head notes by Gandhi biographer Louis Fischer, offer the clearest, most thorough portrait of one of the greatest spiritual leaders the world has known.“Gandhi was inevitable. If humanity is to progress, Gandhi is inescapable. . . . We may ignore him at our own risk.” –Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.With a new Preface drawn from the writings of Eknath EaswaranIn the annals of spirituality certain books stand out both for their historical importance and for their continued relevance.

Mahatma Gandhi became famous as the leader of the Indian independence movement, but he called himself “a man of God disguised as a politician.” The Way to God demonstrates his enduring significance as a spiritual leader whose ideas offer insight and solace to seekers of every practice and persuasion. Collecting many of his most significant writings, the book explores the deep religious roots of Gandhi’s worldly accomplishments and reveals—in his own words—his intellectual, moral, and spiritual approaches to the divine. First published in India in 1971, the book is based on Gandhi’s lifetime experiments with truth and reveals the heart of his teachings. Gandhi’s aphoristic power, his ability to sum up complex ideas in a few authoritative strokes, shines through these pages. Individual chapters cover such topics as moral discipline, spiritual practice, spiritual experience, and much more. Gandhi’s guiding principles of selflessness, humility, service, active yet nonviolent resistance, and vegetarianism make his writings as timely today as when these writings first appeared. A foreword by Gandhi’s grandson Arun and an introduction by Michael Nagler add useful context.From the Trade Paperback edition.

"No debemos avergonzarnos de la ira. Es una cosa muy buena y poderosa que nos motiva. Pero de lo que sí debemos avergonzarnos es de la forma en que abusamos de ella." Mahatma Gandhi Arun Gandhi tenía tan sólo doce años de edad cuando sus padres lo dejaron al cuidado de su abuelo. Para Arun, el hombre que luchó por la independencia de la India era simplemente alguien de su familia. El tiempo que convivió con él fue de autodescubrimiento: aprendió a ver el mundo con nuevos ojos, a través de enseñanzas universales y atemporales acerca de la identidad, la ira, la soledad, la amistad y la familia. El don de la ira relata la vida cotidiana del filósofo más querido de la India, y transmite las lecciones que dejó a su nieto y a la humanidad entera. En el mundo de hoy, sus ideas sobre el fanatismo, la discriminación, la unidad y la paz son más necesarias que nunca. trayectoria.
