Gandhi’s contributions in the context of Satya and Ahimsa established areas such as the psyche of religion, educational and community. There are only two burning principles that should govern the life of human beings in this world: ‘God is Love’ and ‘God is Truth’. He said ‘When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of Truth and Love have always won’ said Gandhi.  The two pillars of Gandhism are truth and nonviolence. Mahatma Gandhi was found of quoting the following statement from Confucius: “To know what is right and not to do it is cowardice.” It is thus possible to pursue both truth without regard to non-violence, and non-violence without regard to truth. Not only did he gain independence for India through non-violent methods, but he also brought peace and human rights to his country. Mahatma Gandhi fought against the Britishers to get back basic human rights for all the countrymen. He provided leadership to many non-violent protests with his followers throughout many cities.
