About this Item

Many people have written about Mahatma Gandhi and religions, and many have published their personal Reminiscences of his. A distinctive feature of this boom however, is that the chapters on Gandhi and the several Religions which he drew upon are complemented by a chapter describing his relationship-which changed more than once during his long life - to various forms of Religious non-belief. Relevant personal reminiscences by Lavanam Gora and his Family are included and are referred to in the analysis, and yet the conclusions are so carefully framed that Gandhians whose own religious Views differ saliently from the authors? have praised this book as a path-breaking Study and a superb achievement in scholarship and sensitivity.
