Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi

In America, the Absolute Supreme chose Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to be the unparalleled student of Mahatma Gandhi and his message of non-violence.

Dr. King introduced the principle of non-violence to his brothers and sisters who were struggling for equal rights in all spheres of life. His momentous words were:

> "I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality."

> He who himself hurts the creatures, or gets them hurt by others, augments the world's hostility towards himself.

> — Lord Mahavira
