Inaugurating a two-day symposium Understanding Mahatma Gandhi: Relevance of His Thought & Philosophy For Our Times at the 'Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan Institute of Management Science', Tripathi said Gandhiji's philosophy was not just based on religious principles drawn from Hinduism.
"It needs to be mentioned that Gandhijis philosophy was based on religious principles drawn from not just Hinduism but also from different tenets of Christianity, Islam and Buddhism," the Governor said.
Tripathi, said Gandhiji also gave lots of importance on decentralisation and peoples power.
"I sincerely hope that the young generation will be able to come with answers to present day problems based on Gandhijis thinking and preachings," the governor said.
Congratulating BIMS for their initiative to commemorate Mahatma Gandhi, Tripathi said, "I am sure the symposium will attempt a new evaluation of Gandhijis thinking."
The 2-day National Symposium was being held to mark the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
As part of the celebrations, an exhibition on Gandhi and his work is being held on the institute campus in collaboration with the National Science Museum.
