This guy is an idiot. Gandhi was influenced by his guru Srimad Rajchandra not by Thoreau. His world-view remained thoroughly Indic, unlike most of the educated leaders of the time (and in today's India). And Thoreau himself was influenced by Indic thought. I am sick of this tendency of the Westerners to appropriate Dharmic knowledge as their own without acknowledgement of the source.

Harash speach is not a source of Dhamma. Either buddhist or hindou.

Ghandi was also inspired by Lev Tolstoï.

My understanding is negligable, but what I personally hold to is the ideal of an open heart, of boundless love. Buddha taught us that we have been tricked into an state of bondage which is in truth no more real than a dream or a fairy castle. We must steadfastly tame the wild energies of our minds and strive towards liberty in life after life, so that all beloved beings may win their freedom and pass beyond...

I will help you.

Buddha Dhamma is:

Triple Gem
4 Noble Truth
Noble Eightfold Path
Like an elephant footprint.

The Dhamma beutifull in the begning, beutifull in the midle butifull in the end.

The Dhamma is well expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now,
Timeless,
Encouraging envistigation,
Leading inwards,
To be expirianced individualy by the wise
I chant my praise to this Teaching, i bow my head to this Truth.
