Welcome to the M.K. Gandhi Center: Inner Peace and Sarvodya

Encouraging the study, analysis, and applications of Gandhi’s philosophy of self-transformation and social change through the practice of inner peace and uplift of all (sarvodaya).

I will give you a Talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him.

—Excerpt from Gandhi’s last written note
