Beginning with his childhood and early years in South Africa, Gandhi: A Spiritual Journey, explores the search for truth and the spiritual transformation of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Influenced by western thought in his youth, Gandhi underwent a deep inner conflict that drew him to the study of comparative religion. His experiments with spiritual ideas, derived from a living faith in God, led him to propagate the principles of ahimsa and satyagraha. Gandhi was as much in politics as he was in search of God and the desire for God-realisation was the mainspring of all his actions, both political and social. Could Gandhi have internalised his quest for God and still remained a leader of the masses? What is Gandhi’s spiritual legacy that continues to inspire so many leaders across cultures? Can Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence address the ills of today’s strife-torn world? This book examines Gandhi’s spiritual ideology and traces his life-long journey in quest of truth that led him to conclude that Truth is God.
