About the Book :

Spiritualism is awakening afresh with all the essence of humanism. To Mahatma Gandhi, it is something more than mere awakening. It is a practice and poignance for manifestation of inward perfection for a better beyonding of consciousness. "A reformer with a revolutionary", as Rabindranath Tagore remarks with reverence, Mahatma Gandhi probes deep into the core of spiritualism and guides for a gradual ascent of man. His objectives and strategies for spiritualism are adorned with Sarvodaya, the welfare of one and all and also with the aesthetic excellence of Truth, Beauty and Goodness. He makes a happy fusion between religion and spiritualism often unduly misinterpreted even now in Gandhian, and steps ahead with the vision of mysticism a serene stream of spiritual profoundness in man the non violent. A comparative study of Mahatma Gandhi and Swami Vivekananda as connoisseurs of spiritual consciousness might open out newer vistas of spiritualism and might also be endeared and appreciated as very significant contribution to Gandhian studies. The first of its kind in radical approach and innovation, Gandhian Spiritualism might contribute to the re emergence of man from the global moratorium of doped consciousness.
