Fifty-one years after his death Gandhi's non-violence seems to be the only alternative to non-existence, his consideration of unity of life inspires ecologists today, his ideas of simplicity and non-possession are the ultimate answers to the culture of waste we are living in today.

Narayan Desai in My Gandhi

The author of the Mahabharata has not established the necessity of physical warfare; on the contrary he has proved its futility. He has made the victors shed tears of sorrow and repentance, and has left them nothing but a legacy of miseries.
In this great work the Gita is the crown. Its second chapter, instead of teaching the rules of physical warfare, tells us how a perfected man is to be known. In the characteristics of the perfected man of the Gita, I do not see any to correspond to physical warfare. Its whole design is inconsistent with the rules of conduct governing the relations between warring parties.                                 Mahatma Gandhi

On this occasion of Mahatma Gandhi's birthday (October 2, 2003), I have created this Frames-Page version of the glorious original site containing Gandhiji's commentary on Bhagawad Gita, as my offering to the Great Master who not only preached  but practiced the teachings of the Gita. If  any objection to this is received, I shall promptly remove it from my Web. -- M.K. Krishnaswamy

Indiana publishers have already launched Gandhi’s “My Experiments with truth.”
