Many books have been written about Gandhi's nonviolent revolution. Here, Eknath Easwaran describes the astonishing personal revolution by which this simple, inarticulate man transformed himself into the Mahatma who ushered the British Empire out of India without firing a shot. It is an unusually personal story, for the book's concern is not with Gandhi's politics but with the way he lived.

Editorial Reviews

Gandhi the Man is a compelling and relevant account of the man many consider to be the most important figure of our age. It is perhaps the most accessible work on Gandhi that has yet been published

About the Author
Eknath Easwaran grew up in Gandhi's India in an ancient Hindu matrilineal family in Kerala state. He had not been long out of college when he made his first visit to Gandhi to discover the secret of his self-mastery – the secret not of Gandhi the political leader, but of Gandhi the man. Years later, in the midst of a busy career as a writer and professor, Easwaran began to practice meditation earnestly in order to bring about a similar spiritual transformation in his own life. He was chairman of the Department of English at a large Indian university when he came to the United States on the Fulbright exchange program. In 1961, he established the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in Berkeley, California.

Noetic Sciences Review
Provides an inspiring example of the reaches of human possibility when infused with spiritual insight
Bill McKibben
It comes closer to giving some sense of how Gandhi saw his life than any other account I have read. . . . Gandhi mastered his own life – took charge of his mind and his body. As a result he knew no fear, only great and undifferentiated love for the rest of creation. And so he was able to powerfully affect that creation.New York Post

Brain/Mind Bulletin
The illustrations are stunning, the biography vivid. Easwaran places Gandhi within a spiritual as well as historic context.
