  1. Yes, that was unfortunate. But Gandhiji’s death was not related to these ideas. Both Dandamis and Gandhiji did not develop their values for self-preservation. The fact that both were able to stop a military power in its track shows the strength of this approach. Personally, I find these bases of our ascetic culture to be very informative, particularly since we never learn about this side in all our education. It is also very interesting to learn about the tremendous influence they have had on our society.
