An example of a real karma yogi. He worked tirelessly on himself and for the welfare of the Indian nation. In pursuing the ideal of Karma Yoga, Gandhi completely gave up his personal life. He did so with serenity, keeping the name of God, Ram, on his lips. He embraced his destiny, trusting that none of his spiritual efforts could ever be lost, as is indeed the solemn promise of Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gitawhich Gandhi read daily for inspiration. He used to send “respectable” people who came to help him in his noble mission to clean toilets because he wanted to teach them the beauty of Karma Yoga—the beauty of surrender, of serving selflessly without attachment to the act itself.
