Two Greatest Teachings By Mahatma Gandhi


On the coast of Porbandar in Gujarat, a child was born to a middle-class family on 2nd October. This child was neither a great artist nor a prodigy. He grew up to be an average lawyer yet today every person in India, and many abroad revere him. Mahatma Gandhi become a hero because he made a commitment to changing the world. In this short piece, we take a look at two of his greatest teachings that many individuals around the planet have followed.

1      “Anger and Intolerance are the enemies to correct understanding.” Intolerance tears a society and divides it, said the Mahatma. He believed in comprising and reaching a solution that was acceptable to all. He did so by factoring in the views of other people.
2      “The science of non-violence can alone lead to pure democracy.”                     Ahimsa or non-killing was a rule of thumb for Gandhi. It is considered as the fundamental principle of Gandhism today. He taught that injury to any living thing on earth by word, deed or thought is not right. He went beyond advocating for stopping physical violence or hurtful speech; he said one should not even think ill of others.
