Gandhi An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments With Truth
Translated by Mahadev Desai and with a New Preface
The only authorized American edition
Mohandas K. Gandhi is one of the most inspiring figures of our time. In his classic autobiography he recounts the story of his life and how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and countless other nonviolent struggles of the twentieth century.
In a new foreword, noted peace expert and teacher Sissela Bok urges us to adopt Gandhi's "attitude of experimenting, of tesing what will and will not bear close scrutiny, what can and cannot be adapted to new circumstances," in order to bring about change in our own lives and communities. All royalties earned on this book are paid to the Navajivan Trust, founded by Gandhi, for use in carrying on his work.
A Higher Standard of Leadership: Lessons from the Life of Gandhi
Gandhi, the Man: The Story of His Transformation
by Eknath Easwaran
Gandhi the Man tells how Gandhi remade himself from a shy, tongue-tied, average little man to a Mahatma whose life can serve as an inspiration for our own transformation.
"A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a "Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble."
"One man cannot do right in one department of life whilst he is occupied in doing wrong in any other department. Life is one indivisible whole."
"Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little, has its stages of drudgery and triumph; a beginning, a struggle and a victory."
"Love is the strongest force the world possesses, and yet it is the humblest imaginable."
"Whenever you have truth it must be given with love, or the message and the messenger will be rejected."
"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will."
