THE GOSPEL OF RENUNCIATION
2

First Edition, 5,000 copies, September 1961
35 nP.

© The Navajivan Trust, 1961

TO THE READER

     I would like to say to the diligent reader of my writings and to others who are interested in them that I am not at all concerned with appearing to be consistent. In my search after Truth I have discarded many ideas and learnt many new things. Old as I am in age, I have no feeling that I have ceased to grow inwardly or that my growth will stop at the dissolution of the flesh. What I am concerned with is my readiness to obey the call of Truth, my God, from moment to moment, and, therefore, when anybody finds any inconsistency between any two writings of mine, if he has still faith in my sanity, he would do well to choose the later of the two on the same subject.

    Harijan, 29-4-'33, p. 2
M. K. Gandhi
