Mahatma Gandhi's Views On Health And Happiness

  • 0 Comment

This nation has given birth to several saints, sages, and heroes. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was all-in-one. Today marks his 71st death anniversary and he continues to be an inspiration to many. He was an epitome of clean and simple living.

In his book ‘Keys Of Health’, Gandhi wrote about his ideas and understanding of health. He stated that the human body is composed of five elements which ancient philosophers have described as earth, water, fire, air, and space. According to him, in order to be healthy, there must be harmony between these elements.

He also wrote about the importance of vegetarianism, early to bed and early to rise, yoga, and abstinence from drinks and drugs.

Here are few of his quotes that inspire us to lead a healthy, happy, and harmonious life.

Mahatma Gandhi understood that nothing is more precious than good health. He felt that everything in the world can be used and abused, and it applies to our body too. In his book he wrote that food should be taken as a matter of duty, even as a medicine to sustain the body, never for the satisfaction of palate.

  "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver."
                                                                                                                           -Mahatma Gandhi

Cleanliness inside out was his mantra! He claimed that the most important reason for illness in India is the unhygienic and harmful method of answering calls of nature. The unhygienic toilets and defecating in open lead to many diseases. For improving the conditions, Gandhi formed a committee in Africa and Ahmadabad, where volunteers would visit every nook and corner to check and educate people about the importance of sanitation.

                          “Sanitation is more important than Independence."
                                                                                                         — Mahatma Gandhi


 On the pursuit of happiness...

 "Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony."
                                                                                                                                          -Mahatma Gandhi

He believed in the power of superfoods. Gandhi on various occasions talked about the importance of milk, cereals, pulses, fruits, and vegetables.

"Wherever flaxseeds become a regular food item among the people, there will be better health."
                                                                                                                                                       -Mahatma Gandhi

You know who to turn to when you want some relationship advice.

“Relationships are based on four principles: respect, understanding, acceptance and appreciation.”
                                                                                                                                                       - Mahatma Gandhi

The father of the nation gave utmost importance to what one thinks. He believed that our thoughts have powerful influence on our personality and being.

                        “Man is a product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”
                                                                                                                         -Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi's Views On Happiness

Mahatma Gandhi believed that if there is a determination to control one’s thought and action, victory is sure to follow.
