Descriptions du produit

Gandhi's nonviolent struggles in South Africa and India had already brought him to such a level of notoriety, adulation, and controversy that when asked to write an autobiography midway through his career, he took it as an opportunity to explain himself. Although accepting of his status as a great innovator in the struggle against racism, violence, and, just then, colonialism, Gandhi feared that enthusiasm for his ideas tended to exceed a deeper understanding. 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, dietary practices (he called himself a fruitarian), celibacy, and ahimsa, a life without violence. It is in this sense that he calls his book The Story of My Experiments with Truth, offering it also as a reference for those who would follow in his footsteps. A reader expecting a complete accounting of his actions, however, will be sorely disappointed.

Although Gandhi presents his episodes chronologically, he happily leaves wide gaps, such as the entire satyagraha struggle in South Africa, for which he refers the reader to another of his books. And writing for his contemporaries, he takes it for granted that the reader is familiar with the major events of his life and of the political milieu of early 20th-century India. For the objective story, try Yogesh Chadha's Gandhi: A Life. For the inner world of a man held as a criminal by the British, a hero by Muslims, and a holy man by Hindus, look no further than these experiments. --Brian Bruya

Présentation de l'éditeur

This is Gandhi's autobiography covering his life from early childhood to approximately 1921. In Gandhi's own words: "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 should certainly like to narrate my experiments in the spiritual field which are known only to myself, and from which I have derived such power as I posses for working in the political field . . . If I had only to discuss academic principles. I should clearly not attempt an autobiography. But my purpose being to give an account of various practical applications of these principles, I have given the chapters I propose to write the title of The Story of My Experiments with Truth. These will of course include experiments with non-violence, celibacy and other principles of conduct believed to be distinct from truth."

Je recommande fortement ce livre, un témoignage superbe de Gandhi sur sa vie, ses idées, ses combats.
Le format kindle est en très bonne qualité, bien meilleure que des versions gratuites que l'on peut trouver sur internet.

This book was a good read. This man was amazing. He accomplished so much in such a short time. He had amazing will power and courage. He was not afraid to go up against anyone. It would have taken about 4 more books of this size to have written about his entire life and accomplishments. Recommend you read this.

After reading this book, you cannot continue living life doing the same things as you have been doing all your life. If you do nothing but only one thing for the benefit of mankind as opposed to self after reading this book, then Mr M K Gandhi lives on!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Self Help book on How to become a Mahatma 4 avril 2013
Par Matta T. Reddy - Publié sur Amazon.com

I read this book 15yrs back for Medical school admission. I found that some of them misunderstand the book, they start ridicule Gandhi for some of his earlier misgivings. The objective of the book is to show, that we all make mistakes but we all have the ability to make right choice. Right choice and constant self criticism can help you become a great soul.

The amount of typos in this Kindle book are definitely an insult to the author. I found it very tough to take the text seriously as it was riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. I definitely have tolerated errors in other Kindle books, though not so many as this one, and with fiction that is much lighter in subject matter, this can be tolerable. However, I recommend in this case, to read Gandhi's story as it was meant to be read, which at this point will have to be in a hard copy.

Experience has taught me that silence is part of the spiritual discipline of a votary of truth. Proneness to exaggerate, to suppress or modify the truth, wittingly or unwittingly, is a natural weakness of man, and silence is necessary in order to surmount it. &quote;

The seeker after truth should be humbler than the dust. The world crushes the dust under its feet, but the seeker after truth should so humble himself that even the dust could crush him. Only then, and not till then, will he have a glimpse of truth. &quote;

Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy. &quote;
