What was Mahatma Gandhi's motivation to support non-violence?

Report as


Simplicity: I do not think history can ever produce a simple man like Mahatma Gandhi. Being such a great leader his way of living, teaching, books and even his quotes were very simple. His simplicity reflects in his ideas and way of living. Simplicity is probably his greatest virtue.
Truth: He believed in the truth
Continuous learning: Gandhi believed in continuous learning
Sacrifice: This is the quality that I truly admire about this man. Not only did he sacrifice a lot in order to achieve freedom but also sacrificed quite a lot after India had gained independence. He had even denied the position of higher authorities in Government for which he was the prime choice.
His way of leading life was a message: Inspite of being a powerful speaker and prolific writer, Gandhi spoke very slowly in personal life and when it was required. His writings were very concise yet punchy. He always wanted his way of leading life spread the message. It was his simple living that helped him in committing his life for the well being of the people and his country.

because he believed that if you could talk your way out of a situation, you had a moral obligation to do so, but he also realized that sometimes violence is neccesary.
