Gandhi showed the same obedience to his parents, teachers and elders. He was also attracted to the stories of 'Prahlad' and 'Harischandra'. He liked Prahlad, the boy,
who suffered gladly for his faith in God. He respected King Harischandra because he kept his word and sacrificed every- thing for truth. Stories such as these appealed to his heart. The great Indian epics, 'The Ramayana' and 'The Mahabharata' were often read out in his house and now and then there were religious discussions with holy men, belonging to Jain, Parsee and Muslim religions. Thus, in his young mind
were sown seeds of religious tolerance and equality of all faiths.
