“The prayer... is not exclusive. It is not restricted to one's own caste or community. It is all-inclusive. It comprehends the whole of humanity. Its realization would thus mean the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.” Thus observed Mahatma Gandhi, who had established a prayer routine at his Ashram. He maintained that his prayerful search gave him the revealing maxim 'Truth is God', instead of the usual one 'God is Truth'. That maxim enabled him to see God face-to-face as it were. At the Ashram, originally sung by Narayan Moreshwar Khare, a senior disciple of the legendary Guru V. D. Paluskar, the prayers were drawn from various Hindu, Islamic, Zoroastrian, Sikh and Christian sources by Gandhi himself. Well-known singers will pay tribute to Mahatma Gandhi with a selection of hymns and devotional songs from the above compilation, presented in several languages: Sanskrit, Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, Sindhi, Bengali, and English.
