Mahatma Gandhi became famous as the leader of the Indian
independence movement, but he called himself “a man of God
disguised as a politician.” The Way to God demonstrates his
enduring significance as a spiritual leader whose ideas offer insight
and solace to seekers of every practice and persuasion. Collecting many
of his most significant writings, the book explores the deep religious
roots of Gandhi’s worldly accomplishments and reveals—in his
own words—his intellectual, moral, and spiritual approaches to
the divine. First published in India in 1971, the book is based on
Gandhi’s lifetime experiments with truth and reveals the heart of
his teachings. Gandhi’s aphoristic power, his ability to sum up
complex ideas in a few authoritative strokes, shines through these
pages. Individual chapters cover such topics as moral discipline,
spiritual practice, spiritual experience, and much more. Gandhi’s
guiding principles of selflessness, humility, service, active yet
nonviolent resistance, and vegetarianism make his writings as timely
today as when these writings first appeared. A foreword by
Gandhi’s grandson Arun and an introduction by Michael Nagler add
useful context.

All of ours souls could stand to steep in the tea of faith, all of our minds should be cultivated in the garden of truth and knowledge. God is unfathomable and unknown to the vast majority of mankind. He is everywhere. He is most elusive. He is the nearest to us, if we would but know the fact. This little book is filled with many truths, an enjoyable book to read.

"It is my firm belief that it is love that sustains the earth. There only is life where there is love. Life without love is death. Love is the reverse of the coin of which the other side is truth."

I got more out of the introduction than I did Gandhi's writings. I expected more depth and thoughtfulness from Gandhi. I mean, he's GANDHI and he had a wealth of experiences to provide context. Instead, the book consists of groupings of broad, placid musings that are totally lacking in individualism and actual insight. I don't know if this was an editorial choice (i.e., removing anything about Gandhi's life and actions to make the text more accessible), or whether his writing really was about as I got more out of the introduction than I did Gandhi's writings.

I don't mean to malign Gandhi at all; I had high expectations after reading the introduction and Wikipedia page. But these were the kinds of things I was attempting to write as an angsty and struggling 20-year-old.

However, it was a quick read and well-written, so three stars it is. ...more
