Gandhiji’s Explanation about God :- ” I see that everything and everyone around me is dying or being destroyed. Behind all these, I see a set of mysterious laws operating in background. These laws are God or Giver of these laws is God.

It is not possible for me to understand these mysterious laws fully. But I believe that these laws are benevolent.

Though I do not understand them fully, it is safe to believe that these are laws of moral government. Love and truth are supreme good under these laws.

I cannot see these laws with my five senses.

But there are many things which we can feel though we cannot see them with our five senses. In same way, I feel these laws though I cannot see them with my five senses.

To see these laws through intelligence is meaningless unless their seeing also changes our heart and our conduct.

There is a timeless series of saints who have seen these laws and seeing these laws have changed their hearts and conduct. To deny these saints is to deny God.

It is impossible to prove these laws (God) through our five senses. My advice is ‘Do not attempt the impossible’.

(Paraphrased from Gandhiji’s 1931 speech)
