<<   LAST     Contents      NEXT   >>

A brief (and easily remembered) summary of Gandhi’s principles of relentless nonviolent resistance

 

ONE PREMISE:
“…to see my adversary as a VICTIM OF UNTRUTH as I have been.”

ONE TASK:
“…to bring TRUTH to my adversary and to hear her TRUTH as well.”

ONE METHOD:
“…to be guided by LOVE (NONVIOLENCE) exclusively.”

ONE SECRET:
“…to accept VOLUNTARY REDEMPTIVE SUFFERING without retaliation or complaint as a means of convincing my adversary of my sincerity.”

ONE GOAL:
“…to seek RECONCILIATION with (not victory over) my adversary.
