"His (Gandhi's) basic thinking was that individual is a part of the little bit of that universal divine, a divinity within man, and it is that basic concept of the divinity within man which has to be developed, which has to be brightened, so that he becomes a part of the universal divine. And if you do, if you establish a connection with that universal divine, then your part becomes unlimited."
