The PRINCIPLES of GANDHI

The   Arbor   Foundation   recognizes   the   significant   moral   inspiration   of   the   principles   of   M.K.   Gandhi,   father   of   non- violent action and thought: THE AHIMSA The   practice   of   non-violence   is   the   most   noble   human   practice.   It   is   not   a   passive   acceptance   but   a   state   of   active   and purposeful   love.   The   Ahimsa   is   an   extremely   powerful   weapon   of   peace   and   the   sum   of   human   virtue.   Non-violence can change the world through the people who practice it with courage and determination. THE SATYAGRAHA Truth   has   no   form.   As   many   images   of   the   truth   exist   as   there   are   men.   Truth   is   the   highest   form   of   divinity   and should be expressed in thought, action and word. Wisdom is made of truth. The power of truth guides man to justice. ETHICAL ECONOMY, SOLIDARITY and CIVIL ECONOMY The   separation   of   paths   taken   by   ethics   and   economics   is   a   source   of   injustice   and   conflict.   The   limits   of   the   economy, separated   from   moral   practice   and   attention   to   others,   are   overcome   by   a   vision   that   considers   man   as   a   subject   and not   as   an   object,   the   only   real   aim   of   economic   practice   seen   as   an   instrument   of   justice   and   as   an   implementation   of human   beauty.   Reciprocity   and   fraternity   are   loving   alternatives   to   forms   of   individualist   capitalism   and   economic egoism.   The   concept   of   common   good   takes   the   place   of   profit   and   gains.   The   desire   to   enable   balanced   access   to resources   at   all   levels   produces   a   source   of   research   into   new   forms   of   sharing   economic   and   financial   reorganization taking into account involvement, participation, collaboration, solidarity and redistribution.
