This Gandhian philosophy isn’t

During the dangerous and
fearful moments of human history, the Ghandian principle and values of Ahimsa

the Ghandian philosophy is that the utmost realization must include peace and understanding,
tolerance, goodwill and the various paths to gain and fulfill the soul’s destiny.

as stated above completely relevant at present as they were many years ago.
Therefore, it is crucial that these virtues are preserved. Gandhi preached
about the significance of unity in all religions in other words the harmony of
all of humanity. Today unity has been lost by external and internal forces

the world our strength, showing them that we strong, fixed and confident in our
diverse culture and heritage to be so easily displaced or uprooted.
As we know India being a
secular country is composed of extremely religious society. Gandhi although
being a religious person himself he was sure about the secularity of the
country, he maintained a heathy distance between the country’s responsibilities
to the citizens and the religious worries or anxieties of individuals. He made

Gandhi’s expedition to discover the ultimate truth. This was clearly reflected
in all his political activities. He believed that life was sacred and bloodshed

create, we have no power to destroy”, was his belief. There was
requirement for the respect of all religions.
The Ghandian values attained
acceptance all over the world. Based on these Gandhian virtues the Indian

A name that has emerged
as the prophetic voice of the 21st century and that transcends the
bounds of race, religion and nation-states, is Mahatma Gandhi. His practice of
non-violence and his supreme humanism are the qualities that he is remembered for.
He used the principle of non-violence as a primary tool to bring about social
Gandhi professed that
adherence to Truth and Non-violence is not meant for individual behavior alone
but can be applied in global affairs too.
India’s first prime
minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru quoted, when Gandhiji passed away that,
“The light has gone out of our lives”. Now we have to try and see
what we can do with our limitations to overcome what Gandhiji described as the
seven social sins:
Politics Without Principles.
Wealth Without Work.
Commerce Without Morality
Education Without Character
Pleasure Without Conscience.
Science Without Humanity.
Worship Without Sacrifice.
We can conclude by saying that it was Gandhi, who,
through his dedication, lifted the county from the British policy of ‘ divide
and rule’ and let the Indian masses for rivalries to reconciliation and form
hostility to harmony. In this, he was supported by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru,
