Gandhian Civil Disobedience & Nonviolence

Program #GANA001. Recorded in Olympia, WA on April 20, 2006.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is an epic figure of the 20th century. He was dubbed "Mahatma," great soul, by another remarkable Indian, Rabindranath Tagore. Gandhi led a unique struggle to free India from Britsih colonial rule. He decided to resist the British with, what he called, "satyagraha," or truth force. It was based on the principles of nonviolence and the tactics of civil disobedience. Gandhi's successful defiance of the British inspired and influenced liberation movements all over the world including Martin Luther King, Jr and the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S. Einstein said of Gandhi, "Generations to come, it may be, will scarce believe that such a one as this walked upon this earth."
