Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on October 2nd 1869 in Porbandar in Gujarat.

Known as 'Mahatma' (great soul), Gandhi was the leader of the Indian nationalist movement against British rule, and is widely considered the father of his country. His doctrine of nonviolent protest to achieve political and social progress has been hugely influential.

On January 30th 1948, he was assassinated in Delhi by a Hindu fanatic.

Salute Maria
Sorry if I upset you, that was not my purpose, but too often men/women are put on a pedestal forgetting that they are only humans with all the weaknesses it entails! Too often there is a personality cult, and we all know where this leads us!
Thank you for the lesson!!! Gandhi has always been an example in my life, which has been a little bit longer than yours!
I always respect others to choose their own way and belief, what is good for them and makes them happy, is fine by me! I only have compassion and love for every being animate or inanimate! All I want is to relieve them from their sufferings!
Be happy, Maria!
"live simply so others can simply live" Guess who said that? and this is my life motto!!!

Elisabeth, I think you can think what is good for you to think, and I do feel an special connection with Gandhi that is making me free every day of my on feelings of anger or pain, if it means to you that I am attached, I will only suggest to your mind that we can not enter the realm of LOVE unless we just feel that what ever we are feeling is good for us.
I have no intellectual connection with Gandhi or any other master, I feel my life blessed with his prescense and many other masters, when i heal myself or I help other people see the LIGHT and to heal themselves opening their minds and hearts to our New Self.
With Love

Aren't you confusing Gandhi with Buddha Sakayamouni?
Being attached to Gandhi is completely the opposite of what he believed!

Although we have just started our own social network: GandhiTopia – - the meeting point for Gandhian students, scholars, activists and institutions on the web, it is my privilege to join this group and to help strengthen the Gandhian web community.
Gandhi's thoughts are more relevant than ever before considering the ecological catastrophe we're facing, and the increase of different forms of violence in both personal and public life. The ethics of nonviolence, as practized and cultivated by Mahatma Gandhi, live on, regardless of national or political boundaries.
May this group be alive and flourish!
