Gandhi's Principles of Satyagraha 1. Love your enemy (As long as your love for truth and morality is stronger) Love would be a great way of naturally implementing the techniques of satyagraha 2. Always be truthful The truth should be one of your strongest weapons. So if people find out you have not been truthful, your satyagraha is lost. 3. Never use violence Unnecessary harm to the opponent are completely inappropriate. We have the moral high ground, if we commit violence. They Win!4. Try to win your enemy over to your sideAct virtuously at All times , so as to make your opponent sympathetic to your efforts. 5. Don't be angry; suffer the anger of your opponent
Anger leads to the desire to hurt your opponent, which is against the goals of winning hearts. Showing the strength of your commitment builds sympathy from the spectators, and weakens your opponent's heart.
6. Wean your opponents from error with patience and sympathy You should act with loving kindness at all time. 7. Establish the truth, not by infliction of suffering on your opponent, but by your own suffering. Making your opponent suffer causes destruction, not awareness of the truth. Your own suffering signals your commitment to what you think is right, and it makes people think about what is right. 8. It appears to work slowly. In reality, there is no force in the world that is so direct or so swift in working.
