From the Paper:

"Gandhi had concluded by this point in his life that the growing enthusiasm for his ideas often prevented people from reaching a deeper understanding of his philosophies. Although he humbly accepted his stature as a great innovator in the global struggle against racism, violence, and colonialism, he believed that it was of the utmost importance to emphasize his devotion to God and to attribute the turning points, successes, and challenges in his life to the will of God.
"Focusing at this point upon specific highlights, the book reveals that Gandhi took everything in his life, from the smallest details of his diet to the most important political decisions, very, very seriously. In symbolic terms, he believed that only a blade of the purest metal could cut through powerful illusions to expose the underlying truth of the world. The key to this purity for Gandhi was integrity and consistency in every word and deed. For example, if he made a promise to abstain from milk, or to support a particular political position, he would keep that vow no matter what."
