Adventure of the Soul

I've just started a big, fat autobiography of Gandhi. The introduction has me so interested in it already. Gandhi writes that, in his life he wants to achieve only Moksha - what others might call salvation - and that for him, God is Absolute Truth, although he has only had faint glimpses of this. He also says, "..for the essence of religion is morality." Thus, he decided to write of his "experiments" with truth in his choices and actions.

I have vague memories that Gandhi has been criticized for not treating his wife and children well, so I will be looking for the truth of this, too.
