Religion comes out of life and can never be divorced from it. The root meaning of religion is that which binds men together and which binds the loose ends of impulses, desires and various processes of each individual. Hence it is an integrative experience of men collectively and individually. In this regards Gandhiji's concept of religion contains various aspects- truth, non-violence brotherhood, peace etc. To Gahdhiji, a free and peaceful world will emerge only when the spirituality irrigates men's personal and social life.
