October 2, 1869 - The anniversary of Gandhi's birth
"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. He is even the atheism of the atheist. For in his boundless love God permits the atheist to live. He is the searcher of hearts. He transcends speech and reason. He knows us and our hearts better than we do ourselves. He does not take us at our word for he knows that we often do not mean it, some knowingly and others unknowingly. He is a personal God to those who need His personal presence. He is embodied to those who need His touch. He is the purest essence. He simply is to those who have faith*. He is all things to all men. He is in us and yet above and beyond us".
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
