Gandhi Jayanti 2020

October 1, 2020

Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated on October 2 every year to mark the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. It is observed across states and territories in India, and is one of the officially declared national holidays.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or Mahatma Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869, in Porbandar, Gujarat. This year will mark Gandhi�s 151st birth anniversary.

On this day, people celebrate with prayer services, commemorative ceremonies and cultural events that are held in colleges, local government institutions and socio-political institutions. The statues of Mahatma Gandhi are decorated with garlands and flowers. His favourite song "Raghupati Raghava" is also sung at some of the meetings. His birth anniversary is celebrated in other parts of the world too.

Ahead of October 2, as the nation gears up to celebrate his 151st birth anniversary, here's taking a look at some of his quotes that reflect his views on God, spirituality, and religion.

My religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God. Non-violence is the means of realizing him.
God has no religion.
It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity.
There is an indefinable mysterious power that pervades everything. I feel it, though I do not see it. It is this unseen power which makes itself felt and yet defies all proof, because it is so unlike all that I perceive through my senses.
