Description Contents
 
The two most dominating personalities of India, Buddha and Gandhi, have dwelt on the notion Ahimhsa as the most important aspect of moral life. There is a definite commonality of ideas and sources of the thought of Buddha and Gandhi. Several important parts of their thinking appear to derive from similar or shared concerns. Both of them adumbrated extensive systems of ethics within which all aspects of their thinking were organized. Ahimsa is the keynote of the ethics of Buddhism. Non-injury in thought word and deed, love, goodwill, patience, endurance, forgiveness, compassion, and self-purification are the virtues to be cultivated. Buddhist morality is the mean between self-indulgence and self-mortification-the middle way. Rama, Krsna. Moses, Zoroaster, Buddha, Confucius, Mahavira, Jesus, Nanaka, Vivek, Snanda, and other prophets and teachers taught mankind the sanctity and supremacy of spiritual and moral values. Gandhi was intellectual continuum and growth of the moral effervescence represented by these teachers.
