My experiments with truth was first published in english translation in 1927, and in its ninth decade it still commands the power, just like its author did in his own person. It meditates only on those like its author did in his own person. It meditates only on those incidents and encounters in gandhi???s life ???which bear upon the practice of truth. ??? it was published piece by piece from 1925 onwards in gandhi???s gujarati weekly, navajivan. Gandhi???s faithful associate, mahadev desai, translated it almost concurrently into english, supervised by gandhi himself. Gandhi feared that the enthusiasm for his ideas tended to exceed a deeper understanding. He says that he was after the truth rooted in devotion to god and attributed the turning points, successes, and challenges in his life to the will of god. His attempts to get closer to this divine power led him to seek purity through simple living, dietary practices, celibacy, and abimsa, a life without violence. It is in this sense that he calls his book, ???the story of my experiments with truth???, offering it also as a reference for those who would follow in his footsteps.
