An Insight into the mind of Gandhi through Questions and Answers


Why do they refer to you as Mahatma - the Great Soul ?


The title Mahtma (great-soul)  has deeply pained me a number of times. I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence (ahimsa) are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could.

But I certainly like to narrate my experiments in spiritual field which are known only to myself, and from which I have derived such power as I possess for working in the political field. A large number of people have told me that they revere me because I understand them like none other.
