EVER  UNTO  GOD
ESSAYS ON GANDHI AND RELIGION
Edited by
SUSHIL KUMAR SAXENA


The book is a perceptive study of Gandhi's concern with religion, based on Gandhi's abundant writings and remarkable practice of Yamas and Niyamas. It provides insightful material not only on humility which Gandhi valued so highly, and which has rarely received analytic attention, but also on the truth-Ahimsa relation which is frequently talked about, but seldom critically appraised. Lucidly written, the book is enriched by phenomenological analysis of Gandhi's religious experience and of his intensely godward fasting.
