advertisement - learn more

mahatma-gandhi-hd-wallpapersMahatma Gandhi was a man that left man powerful messages to humanity before his time here was complete. Here is a list of 10 powerful phrases of wisdom he left to us all. One thing I wanted to add to this to help make it very practical is that for each one, try to see how it may relate to a certain instance or aspect of your life so you can truly begin incorporating this into your life. It is great to know quotes and phrases like these, but putting them into action is a big step to begin taking. Be sure to reflect on each one and see how you can make them a part of your life. Of course, share this list with others so they can do the same :)

1. Be the change you wish to see in the world

2. What you think, you become

3. Where there is love, there is life

4. Learn as if you’ll live forever

5. Your health is your true wealth

6. Have a sense of humor

7. Your life is your message

8. Action expresses priorities

9. Our greatness is being able to remake ourselves

10. Find yourself in the service of others

Some powerful words Gandhi left for us in his time. The important thing to remember is the very first phrase on here “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” If we are to truly make change here it is not about simply knowing or memorizing these phrases, we must truly live them and add them into our lives. Otherwise they are just words.

  2. Martin Greaves

    It is also known now that he regularly asked for a virgin girl to be chosen to share his bed at night. The girl had no choice in the matter but had to sleep naked next to a naked Gandhi. He never touched the girls because his motive was to actually test his own willpower in the denial of own his lust and desire. Despite this, it was still an assault on the innocent girls who were forced to share his bed. Nobody is a saint, but it doesn’t help to hide such facts when talking about the man.

  3. Kimber

    Racist or not; these chosen quotes are something that can provoke a moment of self reflection within ones self when applied on an individual basis and when the source of the quote is unknown or in this case, overlooked.

    • tucker

      You are absolutely right Allen. It is not commonly understood that Ghandi was actually a racist and was actually working for the Hindu elite. Ghandi fought tooth and nail to ensure that 80% of the Population (commonly known as untouchables) had no rights. He succeeded in his plan.

      • josh

        He fought for muslims too, and never was against untouchables, because he believed in freedom for ALL. I’m not sure who told you this, but he certainly wasnt working for the so called hindu elite. get your facts straight

    • Nobody is a saint Allen :) Not even these gentlemen! Our vision becomes cloudy when we judge, that we forget the words that came from the same place we all have within us…

    • Manohar

      Can you please provide some genuine reasons to prove that Gandhi was racist .

    • Randy

      What you choose to see in anyone else is what you are actually choosing to be yourself. There are always polar opposites and even great leaders can be this way. What YOU specifically choose to believe is not a reflection of the person, it is a reflection of yourself. Absolutely no one should ever be a saint or holy…because you won’t know that polar opposite if you first didn’t know unholiness and perceived evil. Many great leaders of our time were first “radical” or prejudices because they needed to be to learn true human compassion and love and they soon understood this and changed. They are examples of how one can change and if one decides to only focus on the “bad”, once again that is not a reflection of the actual person, it is a reflection of the perceiver.
