View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This is the first systematic study of Mohandas Gandhi's conception of religion and of his personal religious practices to be based on the ninety volumes of his Collected Works . With a constant awareness of chronology, it focuses on Gandhi's own statements, revealing the considerable development of his ideas within a lasting and consistent ideological and moral framework. This biography of Gandhi as a Hindu discloses how he was influenced by, and reacted to, Hindu traditions, and why the Hindu establishment rejected him.

About the Author:

J.T.F. Jordens now retired, was Visiting Fellow at the Faculty of Asian Studies at the Australian National University from 1990-95 and Dean from 1982-88.


This work will come as a most edidying contribution to anyone interested in Gandhi's life, particularly religionists. Its very lucid tracing and exposition of his religion, as well as the useful summaries provided at the end of most chapters, certainly make the book accessible to student readers.
