GhandI is a world wide known figure yet he was not particularly notable until one day his first class passage on a South African train was questioned due to the color of his skin. Rinpoche explained that such a pivotal moment often occurred in the lives of great public figures. Ghandi worked tirelessly for Indian freedom and equality for all. The memorial honors him with an eternal flame in black marble. The expansive gardens included blooming dahlias of all colors and trees planted by prominent world leaders including Nelson Mandela.
The pilgrims walked Kora around the flame and contemplated Gandhi’s last words “Jai Ram”.
