Compassion - Mahatma Gandhi - Story
« on: February 05, 2013, 07:04:03 AM »

VALUES:  Compassion

STORY:    Gandhi, like Mother Theresa and Nelson Mandela, is regarded world-wide as a person who walked with great humility and wisdom.

The story is told of the time Gandhi stepped aboard a train and, as he walked up the boarding stairs, one of his shoes slipped off. Unfortunately, at that exact moment, the train began to move and there was no way that he could recover the fallen shoe. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it back down the railway track where it landed close to the one he had lost.

When asked by a fellow passenger why he had done this, he replied: “The poor man who finds the shoe lying next to the tracks, will now have a pair that he can use.”


There are always people who are less fortunate than ourselves. Compassion as a value, means being aware of when people are suffering, and wanting to do something about it. Even if we haven’t got material things to offer another person, we can always offer words of kindness and support.
