Gandhi Gandhi quote An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind

-Mahatma Gandhi I think what Gandhi is trying to say is that if we take revenge on all of those who hurt us and repay them with crimes of our own, the whole world would be full of evil. Nobody can live life perfectly, so than everyone who has done wrong will end up being punished. Sometimes it is better to forgive and forget than to avenge every mistake. Gandhi is referring to the old belief an "eye for an eye" and made this quote his own. He is saying that life isn't always fair and nor should it be. I strongly believe in this idea and try and base my lifestyle around it. When someone tries to hurt me instead of lashing right out and starting a huge war of egos, I just let it slide because what does it really matter what they say or do, it's just life.

When someone starts a mean rumor about me or my friends I try and convince them to just let it slide and let karma do its work. Starting up another rumor will just be adding fuel to the fire and making it worse. Project Gandhi is born 1869 1883 Married to Kasturba
at age 13 1906 Gandhi starts his protest
against the Anti-Indian laws Gandhi is put in prison for
testing British authority 1908 1932 Gandhi fasts to protest the unfair treatment of the untouchables (general strike) Gandhi starts his "Quit India" campaign 1942 Gandhi is killed during a prayer meeting 1948 Timeline of Gandhi I chose Gandhi getting put in prison as an important event because it showed that he was willing to put the rights of the people before himself.

He refused to pay the fine of 100 rupees and later on in his life plead guilty for another crime, he was sent to jail for 6 years. I found this really inspirational that he was willing to give up so much for his cause and only in return receive the satisfaction of helping others. He was a very selfless man and I think him going to jail just provides evidence towards what kind of a person Gandhi was. This was a great example of Gandhi's character and how selfless and willing to put others before himself he was. I chose Gandhi fasting to protest the unfair treatment of the untouchables (general strike) as an important event because it shows how much will power Gandhi has.

Gandhi starts a hunger strike in protest of the British governments to separate India by Caste. He sticks up for the untouchables because of their unfair situation. He sticks to his beliefs of passive resistance and does not exert force or any harm against those he is protesting.

He gets India to walk out and take a day of prayer and fasting. I think it is amazing how someone can accept so much abuse and still stay calm and resist the urge to fight back with violence. Instead Gandhi stays peaceful and stays true to his belief of passive resistance. Gandhi inspires me with his amazing will power. Picture of Gandhi Wisdom is a gift meant to be shared In this picture of Gandhi you can see that he does not look very healthy (probably due to his fasting) but still you see him holding a book and talking to the man beside him. He shares his wisdom and teachings at the expense of his own health. You can see that the man next to him is obviously happy and enjoys whatever Gandhi is saying. Gandhi is one of those relentless people who will stop at nothing to make others lives better even at the expense of his own health. That is true wisdom. Traits of Gandhi He doesn't give up I admire him not giving up because he is determined to make a difference. He sets a good example for the people of the world to follow. If he gave up when it started getting difficult how strongly did he believe in his method? What kind of point did he have to prove if he just gave up? Gandhi stuck with his method and that showed just how determined he was to succeed. Even when Gandhi was put in jail for a total of seven years (not all at the same time) he continued with his campaign for passive resistance. Most people would give up hope but Gandhi stayed true to what he knew, followed his beliefs and refused to be discouraged. This is Gandhi in jail exhibiting not giving up or loosing hope He stays calm I admire him not showing a reaction of anger because that is just what they want. He refused to give in to what they wanted. I love how he stays calm through everything and I strongly admire anyone who has that amazing kind of will power. He demonstrates that these petty remarks can not get to him and nor should they get to you. This is Gandhi meditating exhibiting a sense of inner peace and calmness Gandhi stays calm during his interview even when the reporter tries to see if he can make Gandhi angry. Gandhi stays calm even when they make fun of his attire, call him feeble voiced and a difficult subject to interview. Bibliography Mahatma Gandhi - 100 Important Events - a Timeline." UPSC Guide.

Philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi Philosophy. Savion Travel Services Pvt. Ltd., 2008. Web. 25 May 2013. Gandhi's Philosophy Imagine someone was just about to punch you. The normal human response would be to defend yourself and fight back with violence, but every so often during a fight you see a person stand there and take the punch. Can you imagine how hard that would be to just stand there and take abuse without ever wanting to fight back?

This is what Gandhi did, his philosophy was based on passive resistance. He refused to fight back with violence.

When most people think of Gandhi's campaign all that comes to mind is non violence. Gandhi's campaign was very much about non violence but non violence was just one of the many layers of his complex teachings.

Gandhi created the term "Satyagraha" which literally translates to "an endeavor for truth". Gandhi was a strong believer of owning your own mistakes and finding your own inner truth.

Instead of blaming others he believed it was more important to find the problems in yourself, that way you will understand your own and other peoples actions better.

He believed that never should you respond with violence but it is okay to question it. Gandhi even chose to be a vegetarian which even furthers his belief of non violence to animals.

To sum up Gandhi's philosophy I think what he is trying to tell us is that we should find an inner balance within ourselves. We should look inside ourselves and learn to respond with words instead of actions. Put away the twisted lies of life and live simply while enjoying it. The End
