‘Satyāgraha’ explains how, for Gandhi, satyāgraha, meaning civil insistence on or tenacity in the pursuit of truth, aimed to penetrate the barriers of prejudice, ill-will, dogmatism, self-righteousness, and selfishness, and to reach out to and activate the soul of the opponent. Even a Hitler or Mussolini was not beyond redemption. Their problem was not that they lacked that capacity but rather that it is limited to a few, and our task is to find ways of expanding it. Satyāgraha is a ‘surgery of the soul’, a way of activating ‘soul-force’. For Gandhi, ‘suffering love’ was the best way to do this, and formed the inspiring principle of his new method.
