Legacy of Love:

My Education in the Path of Nonviolence

Book Description – Called a messenger of peace, Arun Gandhi — Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson — has dedicated his life to spreading his grandfathers teachings around the globe.

This compelling memoir begins in the heart of apartheid South Africa where the author lived under conditions of zealous racism until he was 12 years old. Following are the two pivotal years he spent with his grandfather in India, learning the lessons that would undo his anger and cultivate a profound activism. His account also describes living with his parents in religious and socially activist communities in South Africa and India.

This book presents the practical wisdom the author learned from his grandfather revolving around family, men and women, simplicity, religious unity, humility, truth, and nonviolence.

Arun Gandhi has contributed to Legacy of Love: My Education in the Path of Nonviolence as an author. Grandson of Mahatma Gandhi as well as the founder and president of Gandhi Institute for Non Violence.
