What Can We Learn From Gandhiji's Life
  • Early to bed and early to rise.
  • Regular morning and evening prayers (all religions are propagated by human beings and hence are incomplete. All religions are different ways leading to God).
  • This body is a means to realize God. Therefore, keep it fit.
  • Lead life full of body labour. Do your work yourselves (Gandhiji used to spin every day for 30 minutes.)
  • The food we eat should be pure, balanced and regular. Observe fast occasionally.
  • Instead of thinking of the self, think of the society first.
  • Do all your duties on time.
  • Do not do anything by sacrificing truth.
  • Accept your mistakes early; this is a way to progress.
  • Act first and then advise.
  • Read some good books daily.
  • If you stick to truth, even small service can be a means to your deliverance.
  • Nature produces enough for everybody’s needs but not enough for every one’s greed.
  • Write your daily dairy. It can serve as a guide.
  • Your life is your message.
