The life of Mahatma Gandhi (Great Soul) is clearly inspired by the principles enunciated in the Bhagavad Gita: Ahimsa, detachment, Satyagraha, religious tolerance, Selfless work (Karma Yoga).

«When doubts plague me, when disappointments stare me in the face and I see no ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to the Bhagavad Gita and find a verse that consoles me; and I immediately start smiling in the midst of overwhelming pain. “Those who meditate on the Bhagavad Gita will gain renewed joy and new meaning every day.» Gandhi.

For Gandhi, abandonment for the fruit of action was the essence of the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Philosophy:
