Teachings Of Mahatma Gandhi

What Did Mahatma Gandhi Taught Us ?

Mahatma Gandhi’s Teachings:

* How to win

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win”

* What is happiness

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony”

* Believe in humanity

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty”.

* Have good intentions

“Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts”

* It’s important to pray

“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart”

* Be spritual

“Spiritual relationship is far more precious than physical. Physical relationship divorced from spiritual is body without soul”

* Patience is a virtue

“Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding”

* Believe in yourself

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning”

* Treat each morning as a new beginning

“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.”

* Learn to say

“A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.”

* Good Karma means good dharma

“As soon as we lose the moral basis, we cease to be religious. There is no such thing as religion over-riding morality. Man, for instance, cannot be untruthful, cruel or incontinent and claim to have God on his side”

* Truth cannot remain hidden

“Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear”

* It’s okay to make mistakes!

“Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes”

* Love rules the world!

“Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.”

* Make a move!

“You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.”

* Mind without fear!

“You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.”

* Respect women

“To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man’s superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be”

* Why will power matters

“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”

* Mistakes are learning opportunties

“My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.”

* Child is father of the man

“If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children”

* Be kind towards everyone

“The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful then a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”

* Surround yourself with positivity

“There is force in the universe, which, if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results.”

* Overcome fear

“Fearlessness is the first requisite of spirituality. Cowards can never be moral.”

* There’s just one god

“Yes I am, I am also a Muslim, a Christian, a Buddhist, and a Jew.”
