An Autobiography or The Story of my Experiments with Truth

by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi


This master piece, a must read for anyone who is looking to evolve as a human being, covers a significant part of Mahatma–great soulGandhi’s life and story.

Ahimsa, the Hindu and Buddhist ethical principle of non-violence towards all living things, became Gandhi’s life philosophy. He considered Truth to be the only God and, in his political fight for unity, justice, and India’s freedom, truth and pacifism became his most powerful weapons.

Despite the fact that writing an autobiography was not an Oriental costume, Gandhi decided to fulfill the requests of several of his closest coworkers, especially Swami Anand, editor and manager of Gandhi’s publications. The peace leader started writing his autobiography in the early 1920s and from a sincere and humble angle, he shares his most intimate anecdotes, his most public episodes, his mortal mistakes, and his spiritual, political and social triumphs. The first edition of this popular and highly influential book was published in two volumes, the first one in 1927 and the second one in 1929.

The Story of My Experiments with Truth reveals Gandhi’s struggle with becoming a peace leader and a world icon who, generation after generation, has conquered the hearts and minds of millions of people allover the world.
