ABSTRACT
Mohandas K. Gandhi was a constant explorer of truth. As a man who also explored God, religion, status of women, environment, education, politics and the human mind, Gandhi became the sole representative of the downtrodden and the exploited. But Truth in Gandhi’s philosophy is God. He was a firm believer of what he said “God is Truth” and later he himself rephrased it as “Truth is God”. It was his simplicity combined with his commitment to Truth that resulted in the transformation of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi into Mahatma Gandhi. This article tries to demonstrate and disseminate Gandhi’s exploration for Truth, religion and God based on Gandhi’s doctrine on the “Law of Suffering”, a doctrine that states that “the endurance of suffering is a means to an end”. The purpose of this paper is to serve as an introduction and inducement to Gandhi’s belief that truth being the only moral force on Earth, acts for the moral upliftment of mankind. This paper also proposes to present a broad outline to the great Indian Legend Mahatma Gandhi, and his exploration as well as his adherence to Truth.
