Description

Bronze bust between two wall with corten steel text panels .

Inscription(s)

Mohandas Karamchand (MAHATMA) GHANDI

"La experiencia me ha enseñado que el problema de la conducta constituye
la parte más difícil del «Satyagraha» conducta en este caso no significa
simplemente comportarse con amabilidad y hablar en forma cultivada,
sino una cordialidad intima y profunda, y el deseo de hacer un bien
al adversario. esto debe demostrarse en cada acto en un «Satyagrahi»

Ghandi

NB the name Gandhi is twice erroneously written as Ghandi.

The text is an Spanish translation of a quote of Gandhi (from Gandhi's autobiography The Story of My Experiments with Truth, part 5, ch. 24), in English translation:
Experience has taught me that civility is the most difficult part of Satyagraha. Civility does not here mean the mere outward gentleness of speech cultivated for the occasion, but an inborn gentleness and desire to do the opponent good. These should show themselves in every act of a Satyagrahi.
