This research paper explores how Gandhi’s notion of nonviolence presents the key essence of humanism. His faith in humanism is total and unequivocal. Gandhi defeated the deep rooted and prolonged British Raj in India without using violence against the colonizer. He was a staunch follower of nonviolence. His non-violent legacy helped India succeed in getting freedom and gaining independence. His teaching of non-violent movement reveals a sacred bond of unity and friendship between the literate and illiterate people. Gandhi’s philosophy of simple living and high thinking is an example-setter and a source of inspiration to mankind all over the world. Such philosophy is possible only when people follow the path of nonviolence. There is neither peace and tranquility nor even victory and accomplishment when one gets bogged down in the quagmire of violence. The path of nonviolence leads people towards the enlightenment whereas the path of violence leads to darkness. Gandhi’s nonviolent movement has been a fair teaching for the sake of justice and freedom not only for the people of Hindustan from the brutal British Raj but also it was a beacon of hope for the people all over the world. While violence breeds fear and hatred, there is solemnity, peace and prosperity in the path of nonviolence. While violence shortens life, nonviolence prolongs it. Gandhi empowered people through nonviolence and succeeded in defeating the followers of violent means and practices.
