Mahatma Gandhi

Biography of Mahatma Gandhi
"Father of the Nation"

Full Name: Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Born : October 2, 1869, in Porbandar, India.

Mohandas Gandhi studied law in London and came to aggravate for Indian rights both at home and in South Africa. He became a leader of India's independence movement, organizing boycotts against British institutions in peaceful forms of civil disobedience.In 1893, he went to South Africa and spent his 20 years of life in opposing discriminatory legislation against Indians. 


As a pioneer of Satyagraha, or resistance through mass non-violent civil disobedience, he became one of the major political and spiritual leaders of his time. Satyagraha remains one of the most potent philosophies in freedom struggles throughout the world today.
In 1914, Gandhi returned to India, where he supported the Home Rule movement, and became leader of the Indian National Congress, advocating a policy of non-violent non-co-operation to achieve independence. His goal was to help poor farmers and laborers protest oppressive taxation and discrimination. He struggled to alleviate poverty, liberate women and put an end to caste discrimination, with the ultimate objective being self-rule for India.

Following his civil disobedience campaign (1919-22), he was jailed for conspiracy (1922-4). In 1930, he led a landmark 320 km/200 mi march to the sea to collect salt in symbolic defiance of the government monopoly. On his release from prison (1931), he attended the London Round Table Conference on Indian constitutional reform. In 1946, he negotiated with the Cabinet Mission which recommended the new constitutional structure. After independence, he tried to stop the Hindu-Muslim conflict in Bengal, a policy which led to his assassination.At the age of 78 ,he was assassinated by  a Hindu fanatic, Nathuram Godse, in the grounds of Birla House in New Delhi(30th January 1948).
Mahatma meaning 'Great Soul' was an honorific applied to Gandhi by Rabindranath Tagore.
Even after his death, Gandhi's commitment to non-violence and his belief in simple living,making his own clothes, eating a vegetarian diet, and using fasts for self-purification as well as a means of protest have been a beacon of hope for oppressed and marginalized people throughout the world.
 The birthday of Mahatma Gandhi(Bapu) is a declared  National Holiday in India.His birthday is celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti every year on 2 October. 
Quotes of Mahatma Gandhi/Thoughts of Mahatma Gandhi

The great thoughts of a leader conveys many things for us to know and live our life better.


“In doing something, do it with love or never do it at all.”


“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.” 

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”    

“My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.”

 “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with dirty feet.”    

“Your capacity to keep your vow will depend on the purity of your life.”

Ganesha Ganesha


A vahana for Ganesha
    By Rachna Chhabria

Bal Ganesha or baby Ganesha was a naughty child, unlike the quiet Kartikeya. Little Ganesha was always up to mischief, doing things he should not be doing and driving his mother Parvati crazy.

She was constantly running around Mount Kailash in search of her son, who she would find hiding behind a snow covered tree or hill. The angry mother would drag the little one back home. Then she would make him sit beside her while she completed her chores. Her eyes would frequently stray to her elephant-headed son.

Bal Ganesha was fond of sweets, especially laddoos. Whenever Parvati prepared a special meal for her family, she would keep a strict watch over her son who would happily eat up most of  the laddoos from the large platters, leaving very few for his father and brother.

Quiet Kartikeya was no trouble. He was an obedient child. He seldom needed supervision. Sitting astride his peacock, Kartikeya travelled everywhere, often  taking his father’s messages to the gods.

“I too want a vahana (vehicle),”  Ganesha tugged at his mother’s sari. This had been his frequent request for the past one month.
“You are not ready for it Ganesha,” his mother answered. A vahana for Ganesha would mean more work for her. She would end up looking after her baby and whichever creature he chose as his vahana. It had been no problem getting the self-reliant Kartikeya a vahana, for he looked after himself and his peacock.

Ganesha Ganesha
“I will get you a vahana when you grow a little older. You have to take care of your vahana,” she explained, cradling her son in her lap.

Stomping his foot, little Ganesha pouted. “No, I will not wait. I want a vahana right now,” he said loudly, shattering the peace and disturbing his father who was meditating.

Shiva opened his eyes. Kartikeya and Parvati shivered. An angry Shiva was a fierce sight. Mother and son stared at Shiva in shock. Seeing the fear in their eyes,  he smiled.
“Come here,” he beckoned little Ganesha, who trotted up to his father on chubby legs, munching a large peda. Gathering his son close, Shiva ruffled Ganesha’s hair.

“I have the perfect vahana for you,” he said, winking at his wife and Kartikeya. They were stunned.

Over the last week, Shiva’s meditation had been disturbed by the constant squeaks of a scampering mouse. Not just that, the mouse had chewed up his meditation mat! Ganesha too was proving troublesome. It was time to bring two naughty creatures together, decided Shiva.

With his cosmic eye, Shiva saw the little mouse hiding in a corner of the room. With a brisk snap of his fingers, he brought the mouse out. The tiny creature obeyed Shiva’s silent command and scurried towards him.

Lifting the mouse, Shiva dropped it into baby Ganesha’s hands.  “Henceforth this will be your vahana,” he said.

Thrilled with his vahana, Ganesha went down on his haunches and stared delightedly at the furry little mouse.

The moment the mouse was placed on the ground it darted away to safety. Ganesha, who taken by surprise, chased the pesky creature all over the house. Parvati smiled. Her clever husband had once again solved her problem. Now her little Ganesha would not trouble her, as he would be too busy keeping his mischievous vahana under control. It would take Ganesha years to learn to control his mouse, and by then he would have outgrown his mischief!

Who is Dalai Lama?




A Brief Biography 

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is both the head of state and the spiritual leader of Tibet. He was born on 6 July 1935, to a farming family, in a small hamlet located in Taktser, Amdo, northeastern Tibet.At the age of two the child, who was named Lhamo Dhondup at that time was recognized as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso.  The Dalai Lamas are believed to be manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion and patron saint of Tibet.  Bodhisattvas are enlightened beings who have postponed their own nirvana and chosen to take rebirth in order to serve humanity.

Education in Tibet

His Holiness began his monastic education at the age of six.  The curriculum consisted of five major and five minor subjects.  The major subjects were logic, Tibetan art and culture, Sanskrit, medicine, and Buddhist philosophy which was further divided into a further five categories: Prajnaparimita, the perfection of wisdom; Madhyamika, the philosophy of the middle Way; Vinaya, the canon of monastic discipline; Abidharma, metaphysics; and Pramana, logic and epistemology.  The five minor subjects were poetry, music and drama, astrology, motre and phrasing, and synonyms.  At 23 he sat for his final examination in the Jokhang Temple, Lhasa, during the annual Monlam (prayer) Festival in 1959.  He passed with honours and was awarded the Geshe Lharampa degree, the highest-level degree equivalent to a doctorate of Buddhist philosophy. Leadership Responsibilities

In 1950 His Holiness was called upon to assume full political power after China's invasion of Tibet in 1949.  In 1954, he went to Beijing for peace talks with Mao Zedong and other Chinese leaders, including Deng Xiaoping and Chou Enlai.  But finally, in 1959, with the brutal suppression of the Tibetan national uprising in Lhasa by Chinese troops, His Holiness was forced to escape into exile.  Since then he has been living in Dharamsala, northern India, the seat of the Tibetan political administration in exile.

Since the Chinese invasion, His Holiness has appealed to the United Nations on the question of Tibet. The General Assembly adopted three resolutions on Tibet in 1959, 1961 and 1965.


Democratisation Process

In 1963 His Holiness presented a draft democratic constitution for Tibet that was followed by a number of reforms to democratise our administrative set-up.  The new democratic constitution promulgated as a result of this reform was named "The Charter of Tibetans in Exile".  The charter enshrines freedom of speech, belief, assembly and movement.  It also provides detailed guidelines on the functioning of the Tibetan government with respect to those living in exile.

In 1992 His Holiness issued guidelines for the constitution of a future, free Tibet.  He announced that when Tibet becomes free the immediate task would be to set up an interim government whose first responsibility will be to elect a constitutional assembly to frame and adopt Tibet's democratic constitution.  On that day His Holiness would transfer all his historical and political authority to the Interim President and live as an ordinary citizen.  His Holiness also stated that he hoped that Tibet, comprising of the three traditional provinces of U-Tsang, Amdo and Kham, would be federal and democratic.

In May 1990, the reforms called for by His Holiness saw the realisation of a truly democratic administration in exile for the Tibetan community.  The Tibetan Cabinet (Kashag), which till then had been appointed by His Holiness, was dissolved along with the Tenth Assembly of Tibetan People's Deputies (Tibetan parliament in exile).  In the same year, exile Tibetans on the Indian sub-continent and in more than 33 other countries elected 46 members to the expanded Eleventh Tibetan Assembly on a one-man one-vote basis.  The Assembly, in its turn, elected the new members of the cabinet.  In September 2001, a further major step in democratisation was taken when the Tibetan electorate directly elected the Kalon Tripa, the senior-most minister of the Cabinet.  The Kalon Tripa in turn appointed his own cabinet who had to be approved by the Tibetan Assembly.  In Tibet's long history, this was the first time that the people elected the political leadership of Tibet.

Peace Initiatives

In September 1987 His Holiness proposed the Five Point Peace Plan for Tibet as the first step towards a peaceful solution to the worsening situation in Tibet.  He envisaged that Tibet would become a sanctuary; a zone of peace at the heart of Asia, where all sentient beings can exist in harmony and the delicate environment can be preserved. China has so far failed to respond positively to the various peace proposals put forward by His Holiness

The Five Point Peace Plan

In his address to members of the United States Congress in Washington, D.C. on 21 September 1987, His Holiness proposed the following peace plan, which contains five basic components: 

Transformation of the whole of Tibet into a zone of peace.
Abandonment of China's population transfer policy that threatens the very existence of the Tibetans as a people.

Respect for the Tibetan people's fundamental human rights and democratic freedoms.
Restoration and protection of Tibet's natural environment and the abandonment of China's use of Tibet for the production of nuclear weapons and dumping of nuclear waste.
Commencement of earnest negotiations on the future status of Tibet and of relations between the Tibetan and Chinese peoples.

Strasbourg Proposal

In his address to members of the European Parliament in Strasbourg on 15 June 1988, His Holiness made another detailed proposal elaborating on the last point of the Five Point Peace Plan.  He proposed talks between the Chinese and Tibetans leading to a self-governing democratic political entity for all three provinces of Tibet.  This entity would be in association with the People's Republic of China and the Chinese Government would continue to remain responsible for Tibet's foreign policy and defence. 

Universal Recognition

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a man of peace.  In 1989 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his non-violent struggle for the liberation of Tibet.  He has consistently advocated policies of non-violence, even in the face of extreme aggression. He also became the first Nobel Laureate to be recognized for his concern for global environmental problems.

His Holiness has travelled to more than 62 countries spanning 6 continents.  He has met with presidents, prime ministers and crowned rulers of major nations.  He has held dialogues with the heads of different religions and many well-known scientists.

Since 1959 His Holiness has received over 84 awards, honorary doctorates, prizes, etc., in recognition of his message of peace, non-violence, inter-religious understanding, universal responsibility and compassion.  His Holiness has also authored more than 72 books.

His Holiness describes himself as a simple Buddhist monk.
