Booknews
Drawn from four of Mahatma Gandhi's works written for the residents of his religious community, Satyagraha Ashram, this book explores "The Eleven Observances," which represent the core of his teachings about living life day-to-day. The Observances cover overarching notions such as truth and love, as well as recommendations about controlling one's appetites, not only for food but other possessions and power as well. Gandhi also discusses a principle of commitment to local economic activity, an intriguing philosophy as we see trade becoming ever more global. Annotation c.
