Mahatma Gandhi: The Man who Became One with the Universal Being
Mahatma Gandhi: The Man who Became One with the Universal Being
Description

 

From the Jacket:

 

This book contains a frank and illuminating commentary on Gandhiji and his ideals by the eminent French philosopher, Romain Rolland. As a great European and contemporary of the Mahatma, his views have a special value. The appraisal assessment of Gandhiji's ideals of truth and non-violence and of the strategy of passive resistance against th mighty British Empire is of particular interest as it comes from a brilliant mind of the materialist-oriental West.

Long before the world bestowed renown on Gandhiji for his political sagacity, Romain Rolland probed and made known to humanity the spiritual greatness of the man. The two understood each other fully and the great scholar from the West found and drew inspiration from the well-springs of that highly cultivated and dedicated soul.

While expressing his admiration for Gandhiji's ethical approach to religion and political and his readiness to sacrifice everything for the sake of truth, Romain Rolland does not hesitate to quote liberally from Tagore and Andrews, who criticized some of Gandhiji's political decisions. He also brings out how British policy forced Gandhiji to switch over from an attitude of loyal co-operation with Great Britain to that of non-violent non-co-operation. Readers will find the book of sustained interest throughout.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
