We will briefly look at Gandhi’s life and then examine what he has to teach us about: our search for Truth, our “true selves”, and the power of Ahimsa (non-violence).

“I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and nonviolence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiements in both on as vast a scale as I could do. In doing so, I have sometimes erred and learnt by my errors. Life and its problems have thus become to me so many experiements in the practice of truth and nonviolence…” Gandhi
