Gandhijis life was dedicated to the ideals of Truth, Non-violence and Love. 'The
Bhagavad Gita is my mother,' he once said; and the name of Sri Rama was his shield. He was
the architect of India's freedom and one of the greatest men of this century.

A traveler, who came from Europe to India about thirty-five years ago, was asked:
What do you wish to see in India? His reply was: 'The Himalayas, The Taj Mahal
and Mahatma Gandhi.'It was neither wealth nor power that made Gandhiji so famous. He
became famous for certain goodquality that he possessed. He always practiced what he
taught. He did not do evil to any body; and also, he did not even consider the evil doer
as wicked.He wished him well; and wished all well; he wished well to everything,and at all
times.He looked upon all with love,and worked all through life to put an end to hatred and
to spread love. From ancient times such a man of lovehas been called a 'Mahatma 'in India.
