Gandhi’s Advice/Talisman

I will give you a talisman. Whenever

you are in doubt or when the self

becomes too much with you, apply

the following test:

Recall the face of the poorest and

the weakest man whom you may

have seen and ask yourself if the

step you contemplate is going to be

of any use to him. Will he gain

anything by it? Will it restore him

to a control over his own life and

destiny? In other words, will it lead

to Swaraj for the hungry and

spiritually starving millions?

Then you will find your doubts

and your self melting away.
