Readers of the Harijan are aware that in later years Gandhiji had come to

believe that Ramanama was not only an effective aid in controlling the mind

but was also an infallible remedy for most of the ills of the body. His writings

about Ramanama therefore assumed a deeper significance during these years.

While issuing this second edition we have taken the opportunity to add some

later writings on Ramanama by Gandhiji to the original selection and have also

added a chapter from Manubehn Gandhi's book — Bapu — My Mother. The

chapter though forming part of Manubehn's diary is in fact a report of Gandhiji's

devotion to Ramanama almost in his own words. We trust the additions will

please all lovers of Gandhi ji's writings on Ramanama.


Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869 – 1948) was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahatma (Sanskrit: "high-souled", "venerable")—applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa,—is now used worldwide. He is also called Bapu (Gujarati: endearment for "father",[ "papa") in India. In common parlance in Bharat (India) he is called Gandhiji; reference as Gandhi can be considered lacking in good form and respect.
