Birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi
Gandhi Ji was born on October 2, 1869, in Porbandar, a small town in Gujarat.
Early Life of Mahatma Gandhi
In his early years, Gandhi was deeply influenced by the stories of Shravana and Harish Chandra, which reflected the importance of the truth. Through these stories and his personal experiences, he understood that truth and love belong to the highest values. Mohandas married Kasturba Makhanji at the age of thirteen.
Gandhi then revealed that marriage at this age did not matter to him and that he was happy and excited not to wear new clothes. But over the days her feelings became pleasurable for her, which he later confessed with regret in his autobiography. Gandhi also confessed that because of his hesitant attitude towards his new and young wife, he could no longer concentrate on school.
Education of Mahatma Gandhi
After his family moved to Rajkot, a nine-year-old Gandhi was enrolled at a local school where he studied the basics of arithmetic, history, geography, and languages. At the age of 11, he attended a high school in Rajkot. He lost a school year between the two years because of his marriage, but later joined the school and eventually completed his studies.
He then left Samaldas College in Bhavnagar state after joining in 1888. Later, a friend of the family, Mavji Dave Joshiji, Gandhi, advised in London to sue. Gandhi was enthusiastic about the idea and was able to convince his mother and wife by bowing to them that he would forgo meat and sex in London. Assisted by his brother, Gandhi went to London and went the Inner Temple to practice law.
During his stay in London Gandhi joined a vegetarian society and was soon introduced by some of his vegetarian friends in the Bhagavad Gita. The content of the Bhagavad Gita should later have a significant impact on his life. He returned to India after being called from the Inner Temple to the bar.
Standard of living
Mahatma Gandhi was very simple and his thing was very high he also gives this example to everyone, just to live and think to make one look great. It was a great way of life for Gandhi.
He was totally against dependencies like smoking, drinking, and non-vegetarianism.
Nonviolence and Gandhi Ji
Non-violence means not participating in the use of physical force to achieve a goal. For some, the philosophy of non-violence is rooted in the simple belief that God is harmless. Lord Mahavira was the torchbearer of “ahimsa” and introduced the word to the world, applying the concept to his own life. Nonviolence also has believers who accept the need for nonviolence as a means of achieving political and social change. Nonviolence is a philosophy, a principle, and a practice.
Movement of Gandhi Ji
Gandhi Ji was the great legend of truth and non-violence. He introduced a major movement in India, the Quit India Movement.
He initiated the “Satyagraha” (nonviolence) movement in the struggle for Indian freedoms. India has the most important day, Independence Day, coming from Gandhi Ji to India. He played a very important role in securing India’s independence from British rule.
He has proved to the world that freedom can be achieved through total nonviolence.
Any type of organization is closed that day and is granted throughout the country.
A special event at Gandhi Jayanti takes place in Raj Ghat, New Delhi, where Gandhiji was cremated.
The legacy of Mahatma Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi proposed the acceptance and practice of truth, non-violence, vegetarianism, Brahmacharya (celibacy), simplicity and faith in God. Although he will always be remembered as the man who fought for India’s independence, his greatest legacy is what he used to fight the British.
