“Generations to come, it may be, will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.”
– Albert Einstein.
“Gandhi was probably the first person in history to lift the love ethic of Jesus above mere interaction between individuals to a powerful and effective social force on a large scale”
– Dr.Mortein Luther King Jr.
In Gandhi people saw “not a mere mortal but an actual Avatar of God”
“People worshiped him as an incarnation of God”
– A.K.Chettiar (Film Maker & Journalist)
“Gandhi could be seen as the next stage of evolution….. a humanistic and optimistic reinterpretation of Avatarhood.”

“I think that Gandhi’s position in human history is quite unequalled (especially since naming Buddha,Mahavir & Jesus Christ as human has become inappropriate)”
– Vikas Kamat
Here is the personality that wanted to be the change, which he wanted to see in the world. To him religion is a matter of heart and God is nothing but truth and love. Prayer is the very soul and essence of the religion. Prayer is not asking but is a longing of the soul.
When Gandhi says “if you don’t find God in the next person you meet it is a waste of time looking for him further”, he makes us realize “an ounce of practice is worth more than tones of preaching” and that “a religion that takes no account of practical affairs and does not help to solve them is no religion”.
To this great soul who saw ….. “confession of faith”……, “sermon on the mount”…… and …”Gayatri Mantra”…….. on the same footing …… we bow and pay our devotional respects.
