Mahatma Gandhiji's "Ten Commandments"




1. TRUTH: - The first maxim of right path is to tell the truth, to think the truth and to act the truth.
It's my firm faith that we can conquer the whole world by truth and love.
LOVE: - The test of love is Tapasya (renunciation), and tapasya means self-suffering. the more efficient a force is, the more silent and the more subtle it is. Love is the subtlest force in the World.
INDEPENDENCE: - Our civilisation ? ..llure our independence depend not on multipling our Wants but upon restrictiong our Wants.
DEMOCRACY: - My notion of democracy is that under it the weakest should have the same opportunity as the strongest. A born democrat is a born disciplinarian. Democracy comes naturally to yeild willing obedience - to all laws - human or divine.
SATYAGRAHA: - The satysgraha strives to reach the reason through the heart. The method of reaching the heart is to awaken public opinion. Public opinion, for which one cares, is a mightier force than that of gun powder. I am sure that Victori is a certainty if only the Satyagrahais will retain their patience and their spirit of suffering.
SELFRELIANCE: - Self reliance relieves the poor from the bonds of the rich and creates a moral and spiritual bond between the classes and the masses.
POWERTY: - I should be ashamed of resting or having a square meal, so long as there is one able - bodied man or woman without Work or ?
NON-VIOLENCE: - Non-violence cannot be taught to a person who fears to die and has no power of resistence.
NON-VIOLENCE is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind.
It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destuction devised by the ingenuity of man.
LIQUOR PROHIBITION: - If I was an appointed dictator for one hour for all India, the first thing I would do would be to close without compensation, all the liquer shops. It is a matter of deep humiliation for the country to find the children - educaed from the alcohol revenue.
MESSAGE: - My life is my message.

(Born at Porbunder, India on 2nd october 1869)

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
listen (Gujarati: મોહનદાસ કરમચંદ ગાંધી, IPA[mohan̪d̪äs karamchand̪ Gāndhī]) (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was a major political and spiritual leader of India and the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer of satyagraha—resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, firmly founded upon ahimsa or total non-violence—which led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He is commonly known around the world as Mahatma Gandhi (Sanskrit: महात्मा mahātmā or "Great Soul", an honorific first applied to him by Rabindranath Tagore) and in India also as Bapu (Gujarati: બાપુ bāpu or "Father"). He is officially honoured in India as the Father of the Nation; his birthday, 2 October, is commemorated there as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day of Non-Violence.
