Introduced to the Gita at the age of eighteen, Gandhi read, reread and reflected over each chapter and passage, each verse and its meaning. He compared its precepts with those of the Bible’s Sermons and with other religious hymns he grew up with. In his characteristic Gandhian style, he was not satisfied to just read but to understand, to not only understand but to experiment with its truth, and then rigorously practise it.
This book gives a holistic understanding of Gandhi’s ideology which was heavily derived from the Gita. It is not an opinion on the text or even its analysis but, a fundamental dive into the meaning of the life lessons it offers. It teaches ethical education which people belonging to all faiths may benefit from reading. Gandhi went ahead to claim that ‘Gita is not only my Bible or my Koran, it is my mother... my eternal mother.’
