'When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-Gita and find a verse to comfort me: and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meaning from it every day'. - Mohandas K. Gandhi.

Mohandas Gandhi was a Hindu from birth and consequently always had a copy of the Bhagavad Gita close by. However, it was not until he was a law student living in England that he gained a firm grasp on its real meaning. It was this deeper meaning, which would guide him in all he was to do.

From Discourse 15 - ' Purushottama Yoga' (p. 109):

" 12. The light in the sun which illumines the whole universe and which is in the moon and in fire - that light, know thou, is Mine;

13. It is I, who penetrating the earth uphold all beings with My strengh, and becoming the moon - the essence of all sap - nourish all the herbs;

14. It is i who becoming the Vaishvanara Fire and entering the bodies of all that breathe, assimilate the four kinds of food with the help of the outward and the inward breaths.

15. And am I seated in the hearts of all, from Me proceed memory, knowledge and the dispelling of doubts; it is I who am to be known in all the Vedas, I, the author of Vedanta and the knower of the Vedas. "
