35. The Secret of His Power

What was the secret of Gandhiji's power? He him­self answered once :

"The Secret?

A clear heart,

A clear conscience,

A cool head,

Regular communion with God,

Abstention from carnal food and pleasure,

No alcohol, smoking and condiments,

A strict vegetarian diet,

And love for all my fellow-men."
