The Hindu ry title indicates, Gandhi and the Good Life aims at A Clear understanding of Gandhi`s ethico-religious thinking. A careful Study of Gandhi`s life and thought reveals, first, that both are deeply rooted in the Hindu tradition; and, secondly, that he attaches greater importance to action than to mere words. Hence, the Book focuses not only on the text of Gandhi`s own writings but also on his life and experience. Gandhi`s arguments in favour of the supremacy of truth and its essential linkage with ahimsa are clearly outlined. His practice of fasting as a powerful way to project Truth and as a Means to social ends is analyzed. The book also attempts to bring out the surpassing significance of Gandhi`s ahimsli by interpreting his seemingly unclear utterances on the subject and shows how the practice of this principle is, for him, not only Ethical but metaphysical. A thoroughgoing analysis is also made of the means-end relation-and, in this context, of the satya-ahimsa linkage-which is pivotal in Gandhian thought. The ideal of self-realization-and the related concepts of God, Faith and prayer-are also given the attention they deserve. Quite unlike the traditional way, Gandhi`s pursuit of self-realization leads him straight to the service of humanity. For him, one can grow up into an experience of God only by pursuing the line of righteous conduct. Further, Gandhi`s faith in God is intimateIy related to his faith in the efficacy of truth, and in ahimsa and the `inner voice`. The book aims at a clear understanding of Gandhi`s ethice-religious thinking and attempts to bring out the surpassing significance of Gandhi`s ashimsa and shows how the practice of this principle in not only ethical but metaphysical.
