Tributes to Gandhiji

  • Senator Charles Tobey


    Truly walked with God. In the passing of the great disciple Gandhi, our common manhood has lost a kinsman. Probably no man since Christ has more devoutly or literally followed and lived out- the teachings of the master of men than he whose memory we honour today. He was held in esteem and regard throughout the civilised world. Conscious of the greatness of his mission, he sacrificed himself for others imposing on himself rigid restrictions. Abstaining from fleshly lust which was against the soul, he truly walked with God in the world. With many great powers reverting to the law of the jungle, this man of God turned the sword of the spirit which is the word of God.
