GHANDI HELD AS SECOND CHRIST BY ALL INDIA, SAYS SWAMI YOGANANDA

PEOPLE IN INDIA TRULY HAPPY BECAUSE TRULY SPIRITUAL

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

"Ghandi is held as the second Christ by all India; he has broken all caste systems where centuries of oppression and gunpowder have failed, and has united India with one common aim," said Swami Yogananda, representative of the Maharaja of Kasimbazar in America, and recent delegate to the International Congress of Religions, speaking yesterday before the Liberal Club. "A bloodless revolution is his idea, an India conquering through ideals, his aim."

The material interests and the lack of religious understanding and sympathy in American life will be her undoing, he asserted. "We in India are truly happy because we are truly spiritual, and we are truly spiritual because we have come to understand the higher truth of life."

He closed his talk by saying that when the nationalism of the east and the nationalism of the west merged into the broader and more comprehensive Internationalism of the world there would be universal peace.
