Description

About the Book:

The book is a perceptive study of Gandhi's concern with religion, based on Gadgets abundant writing and remarkable practice of yamas and niyamas. It provide insightful material not only on humility which Gandhi valued so highly, and which has rarely received analytic attention, but also on the truth ahimsa relation which is frequently talked about, but seldom critically appraised. Ludidly written, the book is enriched by phenomenological analyses of Gandhi's religious experience and of his intensely god ward fasting.
