MKG - Limited Edition # 21

Limited Edition # 21 of the MKG book was purchased today by Mr Dieter Glatzer, a person of German origin who was visiting India. I did not get an opportunity to meet him but was informed that he purchased the limited edition as a gift for his grandson’s 21st birthday. It made my heart smile, as Mr Dieter had captured the inner soul of the book …. A book about a man so precious that it needs to be treated as a work of art and passed down generations as memorabilia.

Mr Dieter’s purchase has enabled the message and life of the Mahatma to reach students as his purchase subsidises the Student Edition.

I hope each of young people that would be influenced by the act of Mr Deiter and Book #21, find their set of values from the Mahatma.
