I am offering no new topic today. Instead, I am adding to a post I put on the blog last month.
In late April I wrote about Gandhi’s spirituality in an article entitled ‘Bhagavan and the politics of his day’. A couple of days ago I found an article on this topic by Prof. Swaminathan, a former editor of both The Mountain Path and Gandhi’s Collected Works. I remember finding this article in a box of papers at Ramanasramam around 1980. It was anonymous, but Prof. Swaminathan confirmed that he was the author when I showed it to him. However, he could not recollect when he wrote it, why, or for whom. It was published anonymously in the 1981 edition of The Mountain Path, pp. 76-77.
It is an extraordinarily well written piece that puts Gandhi’s spirituality in proper context. I am adding it to the April article since it illustrates and expands on much of what I was saying there.
