Gandhi’s Seven Principles

Gandhi believed there are seven things that will destroy us. Each represents and end being accomplished through an unprincipled or unworthy means:

  • Wealth without work.
  • Pleasure without conscience.
  • Knowledge without character.
  • Commerce without morality.
  • Science without humanity.
  • Worship without sacrifice.
  • Politics without principle (Greenleaf, Spears, & Stephen, 2002, p. 8 )

I believe these principles (and others) represent a set of universal undying principals that manage success in our work, in our family and in our own individual lives.
