Happy Birthday Gandhi
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, aka Mahatma (Great Soul) Gandhi, employed the spiritual tradition of Ahimsa ("do no harm" or non-violence) to transform India.

RE: Happy Birthday Gandhi
Celebrate Gandhi's birthday! Tell a Taoist they're wrong!

Wait, that doesn't work for Gandhi's birthday.

Truth be told, Gandhi is perhaps my greatest hero. There are very few examples throughout all of history of a man dedicated to non-violence, to conscience, and to (for lack of a better word) goodness, who nonetheless had such an unprecedented level of success.

Rather than using fear and hatred to sway great crowds, as nearly every other populist movement has done throughout history, Gandhi used concepts of conscience and morality, and had the same success. Truly a noble, inspiring tale.

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.
