“I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as hills”
– M K Gandhi
Truth is one of the most powerful teachings of gandhiji, the father of India. He tied truth with his daily deeds from childhood days. He tried to be honest in all time, even in bitter situations.
He worships God as truth only. For him, truth is the sovereign principle, which includes numerous other principles. He also has a belief of truth is not only truthfulness in words, but also truthfulness in thoughts. He saw the absolute truth, the eternal principle in God. He had a distinct view on truth, the instruments for the quest of truth are as simple as they are difficult. They may appear quite impossible to an arrogant person, and quite possible to an innocent child. The seeker after truth should be humbler than dust. The world crushes the dust under its feet, but the seeker after truth should so humble himself that even dust could crush him.
His life was great ‘Truth’. That’s why he named his autobiography, ‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’.
