About The Book

Vinoba is one of the few pearls in the Asrama. They do not come like others to be blessed by the Asrama but to bless it, not to receive but to give”. Mahatma Gandhi

Dr. Geeta Mehta’s book philosophy of Vinoba Bhave: A New Perspective in Gandhian Thought is an excellent work of scholarship and commitment. This is quite appropriate that it is being published during birth centenary year of Vinobaji and also in the 125th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

Gandhi’s spiritual heir Vinoba Bhave is an abstruse but clear-headed metaphysician and a logician par-excellence. He has developed a complete system. Hence the book touches not only his life and work but also his meta-physics, ideas about Samyayoga, concept of man, his socio-economic ideas and his analysis of social action.
