Mahatma Gandhi benannte 1925 sieben Sünden der modernen Gesellschaft: Politik ohne Prinzipien, Reichtum ohne Arbeit, Genuss ohne Gewissen, Wissen ohne Charakter, Geschäft ohne Moral, Wissenschaft ohne Menschlichkeit, Religion ohne Opfer. Seine Gedanken haben seitdem nichts von ihrer Strahlkraft verloren, doch wie können sie heute verstanden werden? Verträgt sich z.B. politische Prinzipientreue mit den Anforderungen einer pluralistischen Demokratie? Können wir in einer globalisierten Welt einen Ausgleich zwischen Geschäft und Moral schaffen? Und wie kann der von Gandhi angeprangerte Missstand einer „Religion ohne Opfer“ angesichts religiöser Selbstmordanschläge verstanden werden? In einer dreiteiligen Serie hat ZEIT WISSEN hochkarätige Autoren gebeten, Gandhis Gedanken aus heutiger Sicht zu interpretieren. Dieses E-Book fasst die erschienenen Artikel zusammen. Die Artikel: - 7 Sünden der modernen Gesellschaft: ZEIT-Korrespondent Jan Roß porträtiert Mahatma Gandhi, dessen Gedanken bis heute enorme politische Kraft entwickeln. - Politik ohne Prinzipien: Bernd Ulrich, Politikchef der ZEIT, über die Wechselwirkung von Prinzipientreue und Demokratie - Wissenschaft ohne Menschlichkeit: Bruno Frey, Professor für Politische Ökonomie, über den Fehler, Moral vom einzelnen Wissenschaftler einzufordern, wo Freiheit gefragt wäre - Geschäft ohne Moral: Politikwissenschaftler Thomas Risse über die Herausforderung, Ethik und Profitinteressen zu vereinbaren - Religion ohne Opfer: Kulturwissenschaftlerin Christina von Braun über den gefährlichen Verlust des Selbstopfers - Genuss ohne Gewissen: Jean Ziegler, Soziologe, über unsere Weltordnung zwischen Gier, Verdrängung und Hungerleiden - Wissen ohne Charakter: Big-Data-Expertin Yvonne Hofstetter über die Macht der Algorithmen. - Reichtum ohne Arbeit: Jutta Allmendinger, Präsidentin des Wissenschaftszentrums Berlin für Sozialforschung, über die Frage: Wie können wir Wohlstand gerecht verteilen?

10 Wege zu Frieden und Gewaltlosigkeit Arun Gandhi ist der Enkel Mahatma Gandhis. Als 12-Jähriger erlebte er den bedeutenden und einflussreichen Friedensaktivisten aus nächster Nähe. Zwei Jahre lang lebte er gemeinsam mit ihm im Ashram Sevagram in Zentralindien. Während dieser Zeit lehrte sein Großvater ihn die zehn wichtigsten Lektionen des Lebens, ein Vermächtnis, das Arun in diesem Buch mit uns teilt. So enthält jedes Kapitel eine zeitlose Lektion Mahatma Gandhis. Allmählich lernt Arun die Welt in der Obhut seines geliebten Großvaters neu zu sehen. Und gemeinsam mit ihm durchdringt auch der Leser Fragen zum Umgang mit Wut, zur Identität, zu Depression, Verschwendung, Einsamkeit, Freundschaft und Familie. Mahatma Gandhi hat mit seiner Lehre die Welt verändert. Seine Idee des Widerstands durch Ungehorsam und Gewaltlosigkeit haben Tausende, darunter Martin Luther King und Nelson Mandela, inspiriert. Sein Vermächtnis an seinen Enkelsohn kann uns allen Orientierung geben in diesen schwierigen Zeiten.

Gewaltfreier Widerstand: Wenn die Leute von friedlichem Widerstand reden, fällt fast immer der Name Mahatma Gandhi. Doch wer ist das eigentlich? Gandhi war ein indischer Freiheitskämpfer, der niemals Gewalt anwendete - und damit ziemlich erfolgreich war: Er verjagte die englischen Kolonialherren aus seinem Heimatland und machte Indien zu einem unabhängigen Staat. In Kathrin Hahnemanns Biografie erfährt man alles über das Leben des friedlichen Volkshelden: Zum Beispiel heiratete Gandhi schon mit 13 Jahren, er studierte später in England und arbeitete dann in Südafrika als Rechtsanwalt. Dort wurde er als Inder so ungerecht behandelt, dass er beschloss, etwas dagegen zu unternehmen und sein Leben dem Kampf für Gerechtigkeit zu widmen. Die Autorin erklärt in kurzen Passagen immer wieder wichtige Begriffe, wie den gewaltfreien Widerstand, den Gandhi "Satyagraha" nennt. Außerdem erfährt man, was ein Ashram ist, wer die Buren sind, was man unter Kolonialismus versteht, und was der Zweite Weltkrieg mit Indien zu tun hatte. Ab 13 Jahren, *****, Simon Charczuk.

The story of Mohandas Gandhi, one of the world’s best-loved and most important promoters of freedom and justice, fascinates every generation. Thrown off a South African train for sitting in a “whites only” compartment, Gandhi resolved to oppose injustice wherever he encountered it. His life of resistance led him to a remarkable philosophy of nonviolence that culminated in the freedom struggle in India. Part 2 of the book features a selection of quotations from Gandhi’s essential writings. “Albert Einstein observed, ‘Generations to come ... will scarce believe that such a one as [Mohandas K. Gandhi] ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.’ Richard Deats’ account of Gandhi’s life and message could not be more timely. It is accessible, concise, and compelling. Read it.” Scott Kennedy Cofounder, Resource Center for Nonviolence Mayor, City of Santa Cruz, California “Richard Deats’ analysis of Gandhi’s search for God and the value of nonviolence is very readable and insightful. Gandhi always believed one cannot find God without first understanding and living a nonviolent lifestyle. This book shows us the way to higher thinking and higher living.” Arun Gandhi, Founder and President M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, Memphis, Tenn.

Mahatma Gandhi became famous as the leader of the Indian independence movement, but he called himself “a man of God disguised as a politician.” The Way to God demonstrates his enduring significance as a spiritual leader whose ideas offer insight and solace to seekers of every practice and persuasion. Collecting many of his most significant writings, the book explores the deep religious roots of Gandhi’s worldly accomplishments and reveals—in his own words—his intellectual, moral, and spiritual approaches to the divine. First published in India in 1971, the book is based on Gandhi’s lifetime experiments with truth and reveals the heart of his teachings. Gandhi’s aphoristic power, his ability to sum up complex ideas in a few authoritative strokes, shines through these pages. Individual chapters cover such topics as moral discipline, spiritual practice, spiritual experience, and much more. Gandhi’s guiding principles of selflessness, humility, service, active yet nonviolent resistance, and vegetarianism make his writings as timely today as when these writings first appeared. A foreword by Gandhi’s grandson Arun and an introduction by Michael Nagler add useful context. From the Trade Paperback edition.

On his passport he was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. The poet Rabindranath Tagore gave him the title ‘Mahatma’- the great soul- but he was rather uncomfortable with that. Nelson Mandela calls him a ‘sacred warrior’; others describe him as the ‘the saint of the spinning wheel’ and we now declare him as our ‘Father of the Nation’. A courageous freedom fighter; a shrewd politician; a passionate social reformer and a staunch nationalist; Mahatma Gandhi was all this and much more. He was the most unusual leader this country has seen; and one of the most influential personalities whose name is synonymous with India’s independence. He was the one who touched the lives of millions; whose ideals of satyagraha and ahimsa inspired great leaders of the world; and who could make the entire country come to a halt by going on a fast. Through a vivid narrative; author Subhadra Sen Gupta recreates the life and legacy of this phenomenal leader to portray the man beneath the simple handspun clothes; who ate saltless vegetables and bitter neem chutney; who greeted kings and paupers alike; who walked 240 miles at the age of sixty to break the Salt Law; and whose entire life was dedicated to truth and to peace. Even today as we read inspirational accounts of Gandhiji’s life and talk of gandhigiri; we know that his ideals are alive and relevant to today’s generation.

An essential compendium for understanding Gandhi's profound legacy. "One has to speak out and stand up for one's convictions. Inaction at a time of conflagration is inexcusable."—Mahatma Gandhi The basic principles of Gandhi's philosophy of non-violence (Ahimsa) and non-violent action (Satyagraha) were chosen by Thomas Merton for this volume in 1965. In his challenging Introduction, "Gandhi and the One-Eyed Giant," Merton emphasizes the importance of action rather than mere pacifism as a central component of non-violence, and illustrates how the foundations of Gandhi's universal truths are linked to traditional Hindu Dharma, the Greek philosophers, and the teachings of Christ and Thomas Aquinas. Educated as a Westerner in South Africa, it was Gandhi's desire to set aside the caste system as well as his political struggles in India which led him to discover the dynamic power of non-cooperation. But, non-violence for Gandhi "was not simply a political tactic," as Merton observes: "the spirit of non-violence sprang from an inner realization of spiritual unity in himself." Gandhi's politics of spiritual integrity have influenced generations of people around the world, as well as civil rights leaders from Martin Luther King, Jr. and Steve Biko to Václav Havel and Aung San Suu Kyi. Mark Kurlansky has written an insightful preface for this edition that touches upon the history of non-violence and reflects the core of Gandhi's spiritual and ethical doctrine in the context of current global conflicts.
