Gandhiji's "Ten Commandments"
MAHATMA GANDHI'S TEN COMMANDMENTS
GOD IS TRUTH
The first maxim of right path is to tell the truth, to
think the truth and to act the truth.
It's my firm faith that we can conquer the whole world
by truth and love.
2. LOVE: -
The test of love is Tapasya (renunciation), and tapasya
means self-suffering. the more efficient a force is, the
more silent and the more subtle it is. Love is the
subtlest force in the World.
Our civilisation ? ..llure our independence depend not
on multipling our Wants but upon restrictiong our Wants.
My notion of democracy is that under it the weakest
should have the same opportunity as the strongest. A
born democrat is a born disciplinarian. Democracy comes
naturally to yeild willing obedience - to all laws -
human or divine.
5. SATYAGRAHA: -
The satysgraha strives to reach the reason through the
heart. The method of reaching the heart is to awaken
public opinion. Public opinion, for which one cares, is
a mightier force than that of gun powder. I am sure that
Victori is a certainty if only the Satyagrahais will
retain their patience and their spirit of suffering.
6. SELFRELIANCE: -
Self reliance relieves the poor from the bonds of the
rich and creates a moral and spiritual bond between the
classes and the masses.
7. POWERTY: -
I should be ashamed of resting or having a square meal,
so long as there is one able - bodied man or woman
without Work or ?
8- NON-VIOLENCE: -
Non-violence cannot be taught to a person who fears to
die and has no power of resistence.
NON-VIOLENCE is the greatest force at the disposal of
It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destuction
devised by the ingenuity of man.
9. LIQUOR PROHIBITION: -
If I was an appointed dictator for one hour for all
India, the first thing I would do would be to close
without compensation, all the liquer shops. It is a
matter of deep humiliation for the country to find the
children - educaed from the alcohol revenue.
10. MESSAGE: -
My life is my message.
