"El único tirano que aceptaré en este mundo es la 'pequeña voz silenciosa' del interior."' -Mahatma Gandhi Las palabras de uno de los hombres más grandes del siglo XX, elegidas por el galardonado director Sir Richard Attenborough, entre las cartas de Gandhi, sus discursos y sus escritos, exploran los pensamientos intemporales del profeta sobre la vida diaria la cooperación, la no violencia, la fe y la paz. El libro incluye una introducción de Richard Attenborough, así como un epílogo de Johanna McGeary, de la revista Time, que sitúa la vida y la obra de Gandhi en su contexto. "Gandhi era inevitable. Si el destino de la humanidad es el progreso, Gandhi es imprescindible. Vivió, pensó y actuó inspirado por una visión de la humanidad evolucionando hacia un mundo de paz y armonía. Si lo ignoramos, nos equivocaremos." -Doctor Martin Luter King, Jr. "En Sudáfrica pensábamos que había llegado el momento de iniciar el movimiento de masas siguiendo las líneas de las protestas no violentas que Gandhi llevó a cabo en la India." -Nelson Mándela

About the author (2004)

Mohandas Gandhi is well known as a political activist and pacifist who played a key role in achieving India's independence from Great Britain. Although born in Porbandar, India, to parents of the Vaisya (merchant) caste, he was given a modern education and eventually studied law in London. After returning briefly to India, Gandhi went to South Africa in 1893, where he spent the next 20 years working to secure Indian rights. It was during this time that he experimented with and developed his basic philosophy of life. Philosophically, Gandhi is best known for his ideas of satyagraha (truth-force) and ahimsa (nonharming). Intrinsic to the idea of truth-force is the correlation between truth and being; truth is not merely a mental correspondence with reality but a mode of existence. Hence, the power of the truth is not what one argues for but what one is. He developed this idea in conjunction with the principle of nonviolence, showing in his nationalist activities that the force of truth, expressed nonviolently, can be an irresistible political weapon against intolerance, racism, and social violence. Although his basic terminology and conceptual context were Hindu, Gandhi was impressed by the universal religious emphasis on the self-transformative power of love, drawing his inspiration from Christianity, Western philosophy, and Islam as well.
