A write-up on Mahatma Gandhi's Philosophy of truth & non-violence as envisaged & flashed by me on the f.b. on Nov.8,2010

Bishwa Nath Singh:
Does the principles of truth & non-violence as advocated by the father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi are not relevant in present era? Certainly, they are relevant even today and will remain so in future too as good as a beacon light showing us the right path during darkness. Barack Obama,US President during his visit to... Gandhi Memorial at Mani Bhawan in Mumbai on the 6tthh of this month while paying his homage to Gandhi Ji had very rightly said that Mahatma Gandhi is not only hero for India but for whole of the world and his doctrine still holds good to others.

Aanand Hasil ‎"Truth is Eternal.

Bishwa Nath Singh :The twin inter-dependent principles of Mahatma Gandhi's thought are truth and nonviolence: the ultimate station Gandhi assigns nonviolence stems from two main points. First, if according to the Divine Reality all life is one, then all violence committed towards another is violence towards oneself, towards the collectiv...e, whole self, and thus "self"-destructive and counter to the universal law of life, which is love. Second, Gandhi believed that ahimsa is the most powerful force in existence. Had has-been superior to ahimsa, humankind would long ago have succeeded in destroying itself. The human race certainly could not have progressed as far as it has, even if universal justice remains far off the horizon. From both viewpoints, nonviolence or love is regarded as the highest law of humankind. Gandhi's thought is equally a philosophy of self-transformation. The individual's task is to make a sincere attempt to live according to the principles of truth and nonviolence. Its fundamental tenets are therefore moral. They include - resisting injustice, developing a spirit of service, selflessness and sacrifice, emphasising one's responsibilities rather than rights, self-discipline, simplicity of life-style, and attempting to maintain truthful and nonviolent relations with others. It should be understood that by simplicity is meant voluntary simplicity, not poverty, which has no element of voluntarism in it. If there is one thing Gandhi does not stand for, it is poverty. A Gandhian should also avoid dirty party & politics from his/her life. He or she should remain aloof from formal party politics and equi-distant from all political groupings Truth and nonviolence are as old as the hills. Gandhi is concerned even more with the spirit than with the form. If the spirit is consistent with truth and nonviolence, the truthful and nonviolent form will automatically result. Despite its anti-Westernize, many hold its outlook to be ultra-modern, in fact ahead of its time - even far ahead. Perhaps the philosophy is best seen as a harmonious blend of the traditional and modern. The multifaceted nature of Gandhi's thought also can easily lead to the view that it is extremely complex but very pious worth emulating by all living far & wide.
