Gandhi’s Principles of Nonviolence

Gandhi-Salt-March

  • All life is one.
  • We each have a piece of the truth and the un-truth.
  • Human beings are more than the evil they sometimes commit.
  • The means must be consistent with the ends.
  • We are called to celebrate both our differences and our fundamental unity with others.
  • We reaffirm our unity with others when we transform “us” versus “them” thinking and doing.
  • Our oneness calls us to want, and to work for, the well-being of all.
  • The nonviolent journey is a process of becoming increasingly free from fear.
