Ein unbedeutender Rechtsanwalt aus Indien zwang das weltbeherrschende britische Empire in die Knie. Kaum einer hat den Geist der Bergpredigt so gelebt wie der Hindu Gandhi, dem man bald den Beinamen Mahatma, die große Seele, gab. Die Quelle, aus der er seine Kraft schöpfte, war ein humanistischer Glaube, der alle Religionsgrenzen überstieg. Henrike Rick porträtiert Gandhi einfühlsam, lässt ihn aber vor allem selbst zu Wort kommen. Seine Texte sind bis heute inspirierend und ermutigend im Kampf um eine gerechte und friedliche Welt.
Zum siebzigsten Todestag Gandhis (30. Januar 1948): Im Kampf für Indiens Unabhängigkeit wählte er den Weg des gewaltfreien Widerstands gegen die britischen Kolonialherren. Dazu inspirierte den Hindu Gandhi nicht zuletzt die Bergpredigt Jesu. Der junge christliche Theologe Dietrich Bonhoeffer sah schon bald nach der Machtergreifung Hitlers die Gefahr eines kommenden Weltkriegs und den Charakter des Regimes als Terrorherrschaft. Fasziniert von der konkreten Umsetzung der Bergpredigt durch Gandhi wollte er von ihm lernen: In diesem Band erzählt Katharina D. Oppel von Bonhoeffers Wunsch nach einer Begegnung und von Gandhis Einladung. Sie erschließt den Gleichklang im Denken zweier Zeitgenossen, die - aus unterschiedlichen Kulturkreisen und Religionen stammend - die Sehnsucht nach gelebter Spiritualität und nach Frieden verbindet. Ihr Denken zeigt Perspektiven auf, die in die Zukunft weisen

From the vantage point of her own personal history-a fourth-generation Indian South African of mixed lineage-indentured as well as trader class, part Hindu, part Muslim-Dala explores the nuts and bolts of being Indian in South Africa today. From 1684 till the present, the Indian diaspora in South Africa has had a long history. But in the country of their origin, they remain synonymous with three points of identity: indenture, apartheid and Mahatma Gandhi. In this series of essays, Zainab Priya Dala deftly lifts the veil on some of the many other facets of South African Indians, starting with the question: How relevant is Gandhi to them today? It is a question Dala answers with searing honesty, just as she tackles the questions of the ´new racism´-between Black Africans and Indians-and the ´new apartheid´-money; the tussle between the ´canefields´ where she grew up, and the ´Casbah´, or the glittering town of Durban; and what the changing patterns in the names the Indian community chooses to adopt reflect. In writing that is fluid, incisive and sensitive, she explores the new democratic South Africa that took birth long after Gandhi returned to the subcontinent, and the fight against apartheid was fought and won. In this new ´Rainbow Nation´, the people of Indian origin are striving to keep their ties to Indian culture whilst building a stronger South African identity. Zainab Priya Dala describes some of the scenarios that result from this dichotomy.

When the Indian people, inspired by the words of Mahatma Gandhi, overthrew British rule, they proved that great political change could exist without violence. Revered both as a saint and a master politician in his native country, Gandhi proffered a philosophy that combined Thoreau’s doctrine of civil disobedience with many Hindu beliefs. A comprehensive introduction to this influential modern thinker, The Wisdom of Gandhi recounts his deeply held views on a variety of topics, including passive resistance, self-discipline, democracy, and even well-being. This is essential text for the history and political listener, as well as anyone looking for words to inspire change. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Turetsky.
