Certainly one of the most common things known about Mohandas K. (“Mahatma”) Gandhi is the multi-faceted nature of his religiosity,
and his penchant for transforming traditional Hindu ideas to suit his political and social means and ends, as well as his personal spiritual preferences. He is probably best known around the world as a universalist, who not only declared that all religions were true and that Råma, Allah, God (either the English word itself or the word used to translate Ishvara), and Ahura Mazda were simply different names for the same supreme being, but also frequently stated that he was not just a Hindu but also a Muslim, Christian, Jew, Sikh, and Parsi.
