Truth is something that many people have been searching for, and can’t find. Gandhi described Truth like his inner peace, in this case it was God. Thanks to his happiness and tranquility he had inside he was able to fight peacefully and achieve everything he did. Gandhi was one of these seekers and was lucky enough to find his inner truth. With out Truth people are lost. Truth brings peace and everyone knows that the most desired wish is to have peace all over the world. Gandhi\'s nonviolent struggles in South Africa and India were in search of that wish. Although accepting of his status as a great innovator in the struggle against racism, violence, and, just then, colonialism, Gandhi feared that enthusiasm for his ideas tended to surpassed a deeper understanding. He says that he was after Truth in devotion to God and attributed the turning points, successes, and challenges in his life to the will of God. His attempts to get closer to this divine power led him to seek purity through simple living, dietary practices, and ahimsa, a life without violence.
Gandhi is one of the most important people that has existed. His was a person in love with peace and that fought for Indians Independence. He did it in the most peaceful manner and in the end got what he wanted freedom. Gandhi’s truth is seeked by many, but in some way his truth can only be found by him. Gandhi said that “truth is whatever one feels in one’s heart is morally good, correct and true”. Nobody in the world is the same, everyone has something special that makes them unique. Gandhi knew this and that’s why he said that everyone’s Truth is different. Everyone feels a different and contrary Truth because human minds evolve in different ways. No one should try to force there Truth on another. The search for Truth is personal and is found in what each one finds there inner peace. There is no easy steps to follow conserning Truth. Everyone wants to find that state of mind were you can be yourself and care only about the things that really matter. If everybody found this the world would be perfect and nobody would have any problems. Maybe it’s a good thing that people don’t feel lost anymore but if everyone were in the same and there wouldn’t be any conflicts then the world in the end might result into something boring. There’s nothing wrong on being at peace with the world and most importantly yourself, but if everyone were like this people don’t know what might become of the world.
The ultimate Truth of Gandhi’s God. He had nothing against other religions or against other gods, but he found truth in his God and not in any other. He thought that Jesus showed Truth when he gave the Sermon on the Mount and Mohammed also saw truth and described it in the Koran, but Buddha found Truth and found a special way of describing it. Even though Gandhi found Truth in Buddha it doesn’t mean that everyone finds it in him. God can be one way to find Truth in every religion. Every religion has some way of describing Truth and if it doesn’t describe it completely for a person it leads them on the right path to find it. Religion is a very serious topic because everyone has different opinions on it. Truth may be found it what each person feels at ease with. There are thousand of people that breath and live only for there religion, like it’s seen in Arab countries. These people fight and search for “justice” in a violent way in the name of there religion. When the people that follow these believes die in the name of the religion they feel that they’ve reached Truth and that there going to the best and higest spiritual place in the world. It’s hard even for Gandhi to define the exact place were humans can find Truth, it’s a search that everyone needs to do for themselves and that will find results foe themselves only.
For Gandhi finding Truth was finding a way to do things nonviolently and understanding why violence is not right. The Hindu word for nonviolence is
