His goal was for the people of India not to buy salt from the British. Another one of Gandhi’s great accomplishment was when he led India to independence from Great Britain. Gandhi proved that you could get results by staying non-violent. Martin Luther King Jr., can be best described as a brave, brilliant, nice, caring, strong, thoughtful, loving, and a peaceful man. Much like Gandhi he was a strong believer in the
Gandhi used civil disobedience which consisted of the refusal to fight back with any physical violence, for unjust laws. The world was continuously shocked by his great accomplishments using methods such as fasting and non-violence. Due to Gandhi's non-violence and his use of civil disobedience, he was the most influential person that led to the gaining of Indian Independence. Gandhi's life consisted of many important people and countless activities that led to his major success. Mohandas Gandhi otherwise known as Mahatma Gandhi had a wife and four sons that were very important to his accomplishments.
However, being taught the Hindu religion first does not contain his search for spiritual fulfillment, and Pi embraced both Christianity and Islam. He sees past the shortcomings of Jesus, the petulance of the Christian God and embraces the Christian teachings of love. He worships the mighty Vishnu and the Hindu pantheon while he admires the Islamic religion’s concepts of brotherhood and devotion. Pi becomes a devout member of not one, not two, but all three religions. He ignores the details, and simply wishes to fulfill his spiritual love of God.
Next come Christianity and then my religion, which is Sikhism. Sikhs believe in one universal God, we respect all other faiths, we believe that men and women are equal and unlike the Hindus, we do not believe in the caste system, which discriminates against people because of their birth. We also believe in fighting against injustice and helping all people in need and not just fellow Sikhs. Devout Sikh men wear turbans and do not cut their hair and have often been mistaken for Muslims, although very few Muslims wear turbans, especially in America. Since 9-11, Sikh men with turbans have had a bad time with discrimination.
We never quarrel about religion.” “Brother, the Great Spirit has made us all, but He had made a great difference between his white and red children. He has given us different complexions and different customs...” …” Why may we not conclude that He has given us a different religion according to our understanding? The Great Spirit does right. He knows what is best for his children; we
“Holy Cakes” is a story that teaches us that everyone is equal in god’s eyes, and even though everyone is not on the same caste platform socially they can be emotionally and spiritually. This message is constantly preached in Sikh temples to remind us not to judge people, and treat everyone with equality. The “Golden Temple” fits well with the proverb “It’s better to be safe, than sorry” because they teach the same lesson. A man from the Sikh community decides that he will chip gold off from the Golden temple. However, as soon as he takes the gold, he instantly becomes blind.
While in the West Indies, he participated in Indian wars and acquired land and slaves. Although, he had been ordained as a priest he didn’t find anything wrong with his actions. I believe the horrific actions he witnessed while in the West Indies made him realize that his previous actions were not acceptable nor were the Spaniards actions towards the natives. He realized that the people he once enslaved were human as well and were more than capable of believing and practicing the Christian faith. He hoped that by keeping documentation of his experiences would one day lead to the royal
I was lucky.” (17). Indian boys who failed were accepted: those who succeed were not. Alexie was smart and he was never intimidated, “I fought with my classmates on a daily basis. They wanted me to stay quiet...” (17). Alexie always uses the method of Pathos (emotion) to communicate his ideas to the audience.
He testified on many occasions that his faith in Jesus was the only mechanism by which he could pursue and perform the art of science. Carver became a Christian when he was still a young boy, as he wrote in connection to his conversion in 1931.He was not expected to live past his twenty-first birthday due to failing health. Throughout his career, he always found friendship with other Christians. He relied on them especially when criticized by the scientific community and media regarding his research methodology. Carver viewed faith in Jesus Christ as a means of destroying both barriers of racial disharmony and social stratification.
Gandhi saw this as a central importance and it ultimately guided him to create a non-violent way of fighting back against the British. Tolerance of other beliefs and religions was of supreme importance to Gandhi. In his view, “The golden rule of conduct...is mutual toleration.” He believed that every religion deserves equal respect, and no religion should claim to be superior, as he thought that all of them contained the same fundamental truths. From these beliefs Gandhi came to the conclusion that Hindus and Muslims should be tolerant of each other so that all Indians could unite. Another long term factor which contributes to Gandhi’s identity is his experiences in South Africa which fostered his interest in injustice and ways to achieve it.
