Gandhi Jayanti, read Mahatma Gandhi quotes on God and religion

Admirers and followers of Mahatma Gandhi across the globe are all set to observe the International Day of non-violence on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. This year, India shall celebrate the 151st birth anniversary of the Mahatma (a great soul). Born as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on October 2, 1869, he went on to become the ‘Father of the Nation’ and was fondly addressed as Bapu. Gandhi was a firm believer in God and called himself a Sanatani Hindu. He believed in the teachings of the sacred Hindu texts such as the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Puranas.

According to ‘My Religion – a book compiled and edited by Bharatan Kumarappa, here’s how Gandhi Ji described religion – “It is the permanent element in human nature which counts no cost too great in order to find full expression and which leaves the soul utterly restless until it has found itself, known its Maker and appreciated the true correspondence between the Maker and itself.”

Ahead of October 2, as the nation gears up to celebrate his 151st birth anniversary, here’s taking a look at some of his quotes that reflect his views on God, spirituality, and religion.
My religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God. Non-violence is the means of realising Him.
I am endeavouring to see God through service of humanity, for I know that God is neither in heaven, nor down below, but in every one.
There is an indefinable mysterious Power that pervades everything. I feel it, though I do not see it. It is this unseen power which makes itself felt and yet defies all proof, because it is so unlike all that I perceive through my senses.
To me, God is Truth and Love; God is ethics and morality: God is fearlessness. God is the source of Light and Life and yet He is above and beyond all these. God is conscience.
God has no religion.
If a man reaches the heart of his own religion, he has reached the heart of the others too. There is only one God, and there are many paths to him.
Infinite striving to be the best is man’s duty; it is its own reward. Everything else is in God’s hands.
Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts.
Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day: I shall not fear anyone on Earth. I shall fear only God. I shall not bear ill will toward anyone. I shall not submit to injustice from anyone. I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.
Where love is, there God is also.
My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.
A living faith in God means acceptance of the brotherhood of mankind.
I know, to banish anger altogether from one’s breast is a difficult task. It cannot be achieved through pure personal effort. It can be done only by God’s grace.
The purpose of life is undoubtedly to know oneself. We cannot do it unless we learn to identify ourselves with all that lives. The sum-total of that life is God.
It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity.
God demands nothing less than complete self-surrender as the price for the only real freedom that is worth having.
There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.
