First part of autobiography by Mahatma Gandhi
‘‘I simply want to tell the story of my Experiments with Truth... as my life consist of nothing but those experiments.’’
In addition to his experiments in the social and political fields, he narrates about his spiritual experiments. He went through deep self introspection, searched within himself through and through, and examined and analyzed early psychological aspect of the situation. For him, truth is the sovereign principal, which includes numerous other principles. The truth is not only truthfulness in words, but also truthfulness in thought also. He believed that the truth alone is the God. He says that he was after truth rooted 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, celibacy, and ahimsa, a life without violence. It is in this sense that he calls his book ‘‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’’, offering it also as a reference for those who would follow in his footstep.
