Mahatma Gandhi was an Indian lawyer  known worldwide as the leader of Indian Freedom fighters. This goal  for freedom and home rule for Indian people was lead by nonviolent passive marches and  demonstrations in response to the conflict with Britain and her  Colonial Rule.

Gandhi was a very spiritual man who studied the world’s great faith systems and incorporated their teachings into his Hindu faith.  This gentle , devout, and kind man has left his impression on the world even today , 71 years  after his assassination by a deranged follower. Here is a quote of Gandhi’s under the title of God.

” He is a personal God to those who need His personal presence. He is embodied to those     who need His personal touch. He is the purest essence. He simply is to those who have     faith.”                Mahatma Gandhi
