Summary

To mark the 150th anniversary of Gandhi’s birth, DK presents the audiobook of The Story of My Experiments with Truth: An Autobiography, narrated by Sagar Arya. Gandhi's nonviolent struggles against racism, violence, and colonialism in South Africa and India had brought him to such a level of notoriety and adulation that when asked to write an autobiography midway through his career, he took it as an opportunity to explain himself. He feared the enthusiasm for his ideas tended to exceed a deeper understanding of his quest for truth rooted in devotion to God. His attempts to get closer to this divine power led him to seek purity through simple living, dietary practices, celibacy, and a life without violence. This is not a straightforward narrative biography. In The Story of My Experiments with Truth: An Autobiography, Gandhi offers his life story as a reference for those who would follow in his footsteps. A well-known Indian actor, Sagar Arya has narrated over 35 audiobooks, including White Teeth by Zadie Smith, Love Like Blood by Mark Billingham, and audiobooks by Amish, and he brings his wealth of knowledge to this production. His television credits include A Touch of Frost, Hunted, Spooks, Casualty and Holby City. He appeared as Claudio in RSC’s Much Ado About Nothing as well as Twelfth Night (West End), The Great Game (Tricycle), and A Fine Balance (Hampstead).

Summary

What I want to achieve - what I have been striving and pining to achieve these 30 years - is self-realization, to see God face to face, to attain moksha. In this classic autobiography, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi recounts the story of his life, entwining memories of his childhood, marriage, experiences in South Africa and later with the freedom movement with his constant struggle to attain absolute truth and his quest to be one with God.   Narrated in Gandhi's simplistic prose, Satya ke Saath Mere Prayog: Ek Atmakathaa is a glimpse into the life and mind of the man who would lead his country to freedom and be hailed as the greatest figure of the 20th century. Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi.

Summary

Byl prorokiem i osoba swieta, a zarazem grymasnym i dokuczliwym starcem. Gdyby przyszedl na swiat dwa tysiace lat wczesniej, jego nauki przeksztalcilyby sie w religie, która nazwano by bezgwaltem (ahimsa) i niesprzeciwianiem sie zlu, mestwem i poszukiwaniem Prawdy, czyli Boga. W religiach Wschodu bezgwalt, czyli rezygnacja z przemocy, pojawil sie wczesniej: w buddyzmie i w dzinizmie, ale kombinacja tych cech z odrzuceniem leku i rozumna poblazliwoscia dla grzeszników jest oryginalnym pomyslem Gandhiego. Jego imiona Mohandas Karamczand moga oznaczac "sluge piekna" oraz "zmieszany (zaklopotany) ksiezyc". Znamy go jednak jako Mahatme, czyli Wielka Dusze, ale jest to nie imie, a tytul, jaki przyznano mu w Indiach po powrocie z Afryki Poludniowej, gdzie zaczela sie jego praca i kariera zyciowa. Jest to tytul jednorazowy - nikt wiecej go nie otrzymal. Gandhi bardzo go nie lubil. Wolal, zeby nazywano go, jak za mlodu, bhai (bratem) czy bapuji, co znaczy "szanowny pan ojciec". Krzysztof Mroziewicz, ambasador RP w Indiach 1996-2001. Gandhi byl prawdziwym rewolucjonista, który wywalczyl niepodleglosc Indii. Zyl wlasnym przeslaniem i byl jego glosicielem. Bardzo niewielu polityków dwudziestego wieku wciaz liczy sie w dzisiejszym swiecie, ale on z pewnoscia pozostaje postacia wazna i aktualna. Nalezy do tej samej kategorii co Jezus i Budda. W Polsce stanowil inspiracje politycznych przemian bez uzycia przemocy. W kwestiach ekonomicznych zawsze zauwazal potrzeby, pietnujac chciwosc. Apelowal do przywódców mocarstw, by przykladali wieksza uwage do zapewnienia dobrobytu krajom potrzebujacym, nie zas nabijali kiese garstce milionerów. Gdyby Gandhi zyl w dzisiejszych czasach, wciaz bylby oredownikiem spraw ludzi biednych. dr Surender Bhutani, profesor wizytujacy Polskiej Akademii Nauk. Please note: This audiobook is in Polish.
