His works in India attracted the attention of famous personalities of the world, both present and past, and he even corresponded with some of them. It was the Bhagavad Gita that first emphasized the way of works and devotion and thus brought liberation within reach of the “man-in-the-world,” including women and the lower castes. The renouncer tradition played a central role during this formative period of Indian religious history [...] Some of the fundamental values and beliefs that we generally associate with Indian religions in general and Hinduism in particular were in part the creation of the renouncer tradition.

Hinduism originated from Northern part of India and the word “Hindu” was derived from the Indus river, a body of water that streams 1,800 miles from Tibet and goes through Kashmir and Pakistan and flows out to the sea. It is also apparent he was frustrated with the Hindu ability to just absorb one more God. "I preached to them the second commandment about idolatry. In a speech at Madurai on September 22, Mahatma Gandhi took the vow “to discard at least up to the 31st of October my topi and vest and to content myself with only a loincloth and a chaddar whenever found necessary for protection of my body.” 7 The single loincloth became the regular dress of Mahatma Gandhi from then onwards, and thus he came to resemble even more a traditional Indian man of religion and divinity.
