required strength. By following this path, the satyagrahi ( practitioner of satyagraha ) is able to release a force stronger than any weapon. It is a force of intense love borne out of an absence of self-interest. It is an active seeking of the truth, devoid of hostility, anger and violence, which allows the victim to view himself as one with his attacker.
Gandhi defines satyagraha as "soul-force," which emerges through the uncovering of the true human spirit.
