Four or five years ago, at the instance of some of my nearest co-workers, I agreed to write my autobiography. I made the start, but scarcely had I turned over the first sheet when riots broke out in Bombay and the work remained at a standstill. it is not my purpose to attempt a real autobiography. I simply want to tell the story of my numerous experiments with truth, and as my life consists of nothing but those experiments, it is true that the story will take the shape of an autobiography. But I shall not mind, if every page of it speaks only of my experiments. I believe, or at any rate flatter myself with the belief, that a connected account of all these experiments will not be without benefit to the reader.

The remarkable life and inspiring beliefs of a legendary peacemaker and liberator of India—in his own words. Remember that all through history, there have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Always. In the story of his life from early childhood through 1921, Mohandas K. Gandhi candidly reveals his young investigations into sin and seeking atonement; the philosophy, art, and literature that influenced his thoughts and ideas; and his first experiences with politics and protest, which would provide the foundation for his nonviolent struggle for justice, equality, and Indian independence from the British Empire. Gandhi’s intention in setting down an account of his formative years was to clarify the spiritual principles by which he lived and to inspire individuals and movements in their quests for personal and political freedom. The timeless lessons to be derived from the autobiography of this dedicated seeker of truth and brilliant leader continue to resonate wherever freedom is challenged by tyranny. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is among the most enigmatic, charismatic, deeply revered and equally reviled figures of the twentieth century. His Autobiography, one of the most widely read and translated Indian books of all time, is a classic that allows us to glimpse the transformation of a well-meaning lawyer into a Satyagrahi and an ashramite. In this first-ever critical edition, eminent scholar Tridip Suhrud shines new light on Gandhi's life and thought. The deeply researched notes elucidate the contexts and characters of the Autobiography, while alternative translations capture the flavour, cadence and quirkiness of the Gujarati. In the highly original and insightful introduction, Suhrud traces Gandhi's transformation into a Satyagrahi, a seeker of Truth as God, and explores possible modes of reading the Autobiography. This edition is an absorbing, illuminating text about the life-affirming journey of the most public yet most complex figure of Indian history.

He believed that the truth alone is the God. He says that he was after truth rooted in devotion to God and attributed the turning points, successes, and challenges in his life to the will of God. His attempts to get closer to this divine power led him to seek purity through simple living, celibacy, and ahimsa a life without violence.

10 Wege zu Frieden und Gewaltlosigkeit Arun Gandhi ist der Enkel Mahatma Gandhis. Als 12-Jähriger erlebte er den bedeutenden und einflussreichen Friedensaktivisten aus nächster Nähe. Zwei Jahre lang lebte er gemeinsam mit ihm im Ashram Sevagram in Zentralindien. Während dieser Zeit lehrte sein Großvater ihn die zehn wichtigsten Lektionen des Lebens, ein Vermächtnis, das Arun in diesem Buch mit uns teilt. So enthält jedes Kapitel eine zeitlose Lektion Mahatma Gandhis. Allmählich lernt Arun die Welt in der Obhut seines geliebten Großvaters neu zu sehen. Und gemeinsam mit ihm durchdringt auch der Leser Fragen zum Umgang mit Wut, zur Identität, zu Depression, Verschwendung, Einsamkeit, Freundschaft und Familie. Mahatma Gandhi hat mit seiner Lehre die Welt verändert. Seine Idee des Widerstands durch Ungehorsam und Gewaltlosigkeit haben Tausende, darunter Martin Luther King und Nelson Mandela, inspiriert. Sein Vermächtnis an seinen Enkelsohn kann uns allen Orientierung geben in diesen schwierigen Zeiten.

English summary: Jawaharlal Nehru (1889-1964) wrote his world history in form of letters to his daughter Indira (1917-1984) in the 1930s. The work represents a key text of cosmopolitan world historical consideration from the first half of the 20th century. German text. German description: Dieses Werk, das Jawaharlal Nehru wahrend seiner Gefangnishaft in den 1930er Jahren fur seine Tochter Indira verfasste, ist eine weltweit noch immer hochst populare Geschichtsdarstellung. Das in vieler Hinsicht meisterhafte Opus, das auch ein erwachsenes Lesepublikum anspricht, soll nach einem halben Jahrhundert erneut der deutschsprachigen Offentlichkeit zuganglich gemacht werden. Es reprasentiert einen Schlusseltext kosmopolitischer Weltgeschichtsbetrachtung, der auch heute noch eine oft erstaunliche Aktualitat besitzt. Indem das Werk die vertrauten Betrachtungshorizonte erweitert und den europaischen und asiatischen Blickwinkel zu verbinden weiss, ermoglicht es jenen transkulturellen Perspektivenwechsel, ohne den historisch-politische Bildung im Zeitalter der Globalisierung nicht mehr denkbar ist.
