Gandhi’s relationship with the occult and how he believed there was only 1 true religion
“The soul of religions is one, but it is encased in a multitude of forms. The latter will endure to the end of time. Wise men will ignore the outward crust and see the same soul living under a variety of crusts. … Truth is the exclusive property of no single scripture. We may call ourselves Christians, Hindus or Mohammedans. Whatever we may be, beneath that diversity there is a oneness which is unmistakable and underneath many religions there is also one religion.” Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi was the leader of the Indian nationalism movement in British-ruled India. Gandhi employed non-violent (Ahimsa) peaceful protests. Using these methods Gandhi led India to liberation from British colonialism and inspired many later movements for non-violent protest and freedom across the globe.
Gandhi also had some controversial beliefs when it came to religion and was a follower of Madame Blavatsky’s Theosophy which states “There is no religion higher than Truth.” and that behind all religion there is one ultimate true religion. This is not to say that Christianity, Buddhism, the Islamic faith and all others are not a true religion, but just an expression of the same thing.
