In 1893, Mohandas Gandhi left India for South Africa at the age of 23 a man whose past was full of failure. Ten years later, called a saint even by those who opposed him, he grew to become the acknowledged leader of 400 million Indians in their struggle for independence. How did it happen? As a young man, Eknath Easwaran visited Gandhi not to observe his political style, he states, but, "because I wanted to know the secret of his power." It is this secret that Easwaran reveals to his readers. 192 pagesAbout the Author:
Eknath Easwaran grew up in Gandhi's India in an ancient Hindu matrilineal family in Kerala state. He had not been long out of college when he made his first visit to Gandhi to discover the secret of his self-mastery the secret not of Gandhi the political leader, but of Gandhi the man.Years later, in the midst of a busy career as a writer and professor, Easwaran began to practice meditation earnestly in order to bring about a similar spiritual transformation in his own life. He was chairman of the Department of English at a large Indian university when he came to the United States on the Fulbright exchange program. In 1961, he established the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in Berkeley, California. Since that time he has dedicated himself to teaching meditation to those leading active lives in the midst of family and community.
