On page 4 of his preface to Gita Praveshika (in Hindi) Gandhiji writes to say that for the new edition, he would like to add a few more words.

In the printed part of the earlier preface,Gandhiji had already said that Gita is not just for being read or to be made by heart. Gita is for being translated into action.

In national institutions, nothing should be done that is likely to hurt the fealings of members of other communities whether present of not. But any performance that is a part of a particular religion must be performed e.g. Baang and Islam. I merely tolerate some of the rites. Idol, Worshipping is a part of Hinduism and it will never go because man himself is an idol . I know I am nt quite clear about these matters and so have not been able to give clear aut replies.

(2) REgarding the biography Sardar Patel Gandhiji says Wheatever has appeared in the news[apers should not to be believed to be completely true.

(3) REgarding the publishing of the newspaper, Gandhiji says that Jivanji and Mavlankar should get a license from the magistrate. Government inference, Gandhiji felt was almost intolerable.
