Eknath Easwaran grew up in India and witnessed how Gandhi inspired people of all races, backgrounds, and religions to turn anger into compassion and hatred into love.
How had Gandhi transformed himself from an ineffective young lawyer into the Mahatma, the "great soul" who led 400 million ordinary men and women in their nonviolent struggle for independence? To find out, Easwaran visited Gandhi's ashram and watched the Mahatma absorbed in meditation on the Bhagavad Gita - the wellspring of Gandhi's spiritual strength.
Easwaran, a leading authority on the Bhagavad Gita and on spiritual living, explains the principles underlying Gandhi's nonviolence. He highlights how we can all use Gandhi's teachings to make our families, workplaces, and communities more peaceful in the world today.
This audiobook is a complete narration of Easwaran's Gandhi the Man but excludes the short Foreword, and the Afterword ("How Nonviolence Works") that are by other writers.
"Every few pages, the text is interspersed with something Gandhi said or wrote - I resonated with almost every quote....You cannot deny the life and spirit of this man. It leaps out at you from every page. And so, in the end, it's a great book. Simply because of the strength of the man and his words, this book has an emotional/spiritual power that you can't help but notice." (NewPages.com)
"Its great contribution is its emphasis on the spiritual foundation of Gandhi's life journey." ( The Nonviolent Activist)
