A scintillating collection from one of our most original minds Ramchandra Gandhi (1937 2007) was regarded as a sage in his lifetime. This book brings together some of his long essays and hitherto unpublished talks and writings on themes ranging from non-violence and karma to svaraj, brahmacharya and modern Indian spirituality, that are contextualized in an introduction by close disciple A. Raghuramaraju. Bridging the moral, religious and social, the book offers many original insights: on how Sri Ramakrishna and Sri Sarada Devi s catholic vision of religion annihilated exclusivism; the manner in which Gandhi s martyrdom broke the prevailing power of evil and violence worldwide; how going beyond celibacy, brahmacharya is a joyous renunciation of sex; and on svaraj being a struggle for the kingdom of self and autonomy , not mere political independence. Brilliantly argued and inspiring, The Seven Sages brings Ramchandra Gandhi s ideas to a new audience, beyond his admirers.
