Description

His pacifist philosophy brought one of the world's great powers to its knees. He proved that violence is not the only road to change.

Mahatma Gandhi's life was a study in contrast and paradox. He saw himself as doing God's work, yet recognized only personal conscience as the highest authority. He was a charismatic leader of millions who confounded intellectuals. He took a vow of abstinence, but in old age welcomed young women into his bed! BIOGRAPHY® profiles the small man who took a great nation on his shoulders and changed the world. Trace his rise to power and fearless campaign of truth, non-violence and non-cooperation with injustice that defeated the British Empire. Biographers offer insight into his surprising personal life, while historians explore his remarkable accomplishments. Hear from his grandson, Arun Gandhi, and, in a rare interview, the Dalai Lama reflects on Gandhi's incredible life and enduring legacy.

From the formation of his philosophy to changing the face of the world, this is the complete saga of the Pilgrim of Peace Mahatma Gandhi.

A great, albeit brief, overview of Gandhi's life
Reviewer LOLJPB

I watched the A & E Biography, Mahatma Gandhi: Pilgrim of Peace about a month after watched the movie Gandhi (starring Ben Kingsley) and it was the perfect complement. I learned a lot more about the historical aspects of Gandhi''s life although the documentary was a bit of the short side. I'd highly recommend this title to anyone who enjoyed the movie Gandhi.

I watched the DVD version of this title which runs a little over 45 minutes.
