Mohandas Gandhi

Non-violence is a power which can be wielded equally by all

Non-violence is a power which can be wielded equally by all—children, young men and women, the elders, provided they have a living faith in the Source of Love and have therefore equal love for all humankind. When non-violence is accepted as the law of life it must pervade the whole being and not be simply applied to isolated acts.

~ Mohandas Gandhi

To find peace from within

Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances . . .

~ by Mohandas Gandhi

Full of you, full of joy

O thou dweller in my heart,
Open it out, purify it, make it bright, beautiful,
Awaken it, prepare it, make it fearless,
Make it a blessing to others,
Rid it of laziness, free it from doubt,
Unite it with all, destroy its bondage,
Let thy peaceful music prevade all its works,
Make my heart fixed on thy holy feet
And make it full of you, full of joy, full of joy,.

~ by Mohandas Gandhi

Prayer is the most potent instrument of action

Properly understood and applied, prayer is the most potent instrument of action.
