“Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed” – Mahatma Gandhi

A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.

Tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. The main purpose of life is to live rightly, think rightly, and act rightly. The soul must languish when we give all our thought to the body.  Let us pay tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary.  He is and will always remain our  source of inspiration.

Prior to becoming President of the United States, then-Senator Barack Obama said that, “Throughout my life, I have always looked to Mahatma Gandhi as an inspiration because he embodies the kind of transformational change that can be made when ordinary people come together to do extraordinary things.

That is why his portrait hangs in my Senate office: to remind me that real results will come not just from Washington – they will come from the people.”

Here are few of his inspiring quotes that are relevant in modern times and   reinforcing  the importance of living  basic human Values in our every day life.

Practicing right conduct in every facet of life will resolve the challenges with confidence and look at the issues with a positive outlook making right choices.

Love

  •  Where love is, there God is also
  •  Where there is love there is life.
  • Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.

Peace

  • 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.
  • Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.
  • Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding.
  • Peace is its own reward.

Responsibility

  • Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts.
  • Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.

Integrity

  •  A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.
  •  A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes
  • An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.

Compassion

  • Compassion is a muscle that gets stronger with use.
  • Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy.
  • Nearly everything you do is of no importance, but it is important that you do it

Here are other important things to remember:-

  •  Non Violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Reinforcing good habits at a young age can go a long way towards creating responsible, respectful students, friends, employees and citizens. When you learn to respect yourself, you learn to stand up for yourself when needed. When you learn to accept responsibility, you learn to recognize when someone is trying to shirk their responsibilities. Teaching, sharing and showing these global human values helps kids understand their value as human being.
