THE SEVEN DEADLY SOCIAL SINS

Photo: A list of the 11 "Ashram Observances" at Bapu Setu, the rural home of Mahatma Gandhi.

In addition to the "Ashram Observances," I saw the "Seven Deadly Social Sins" posted at Gandhi's home, Bapu Setu, near Sevagram, India last week. I have often quoted these seven sins, so it was quite heartening and interesting to see them posted at the home of their orginator. Gandhi embodied a way to not only avoid these social sins, but a positive way to live their opposite:

Politics without principle

Wealth without work

Commerce without morality

Pleasure without conscience

Education without character

Science without humanity

Worship without sacrifice
