“I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could.”
MAHATMA GANDHI – Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was one of the most authoritative moral and spiritual teachers of the 20th century.
Mahatma Gandhi was an ideologist of a resolved but peaceful opposition to violence and inequality in society. Thanks to the efforts of Gandhi, the first Constitution of India officially banned discrimination against different estate groups. Gandhi treated religions with great understanding, tolerance and peacefulness trying to reconcile all of humanity.
Mahatma Gandhi developed a tactic of non-violent resistance, which he called “Satyagraha” (devotion to the truth). By his initiative, the Indians peacefully proved to the whole world that their country is a self-sufficient and strong republic. The philosophical views of Gandhi were based on peace in solving the most acute national and social conflicts and had a great influence on the movement of supporters of peaceful change in the whole world.
