page The Wisdom of Gandhi
Gandhi was known for his commitment to total nonviolence as the cornerstone of civil disobedience. He was known for inspiring such monumental leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, and even President Barack Obama. But perhaps India’s Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, also known as Mahatma Gandhi, is remembered best for his commitment to truth and simplicity in how he lived his life—characteristics emulated even now by people across the world.
Gandhi, or Bapu (father), was a Hindu devotee who dedicated his life to satya, or the pursuit of truth. He believed that love, respect, and truth were the underpinnings of all religions and the basic foundation for a moral life. As he famously once said when asked if he was a Hindu, “Yes I am. I am also a Christian, a Muslim, a Buddhist and a Jew.” With the indomitable spirit of Gandhi in mind, we’ve chosen some of his most inspiring quotes from our own virtual library to share with you.
