A letter written by Mahatma Gandhi, in which he discusses the nature of existence of Jesus Christ, is up for sale and could be purchased for $50,000.
Typed in faint ink and with a bold, unaffected signature, the letter was part of a private collection for the past several decades and is now being sold by the Pennsylvania-based Raab Collection.
The letter dated April 6, 1926, written by Gandhi from his Sabarmati Ashram in India.
"Jesus was one of the great teachers of mankind," Gandhi wrote in the letter to Christian religious elder in the United States, Milton Newberry Frantz.
"This is one of the finest letters on religion that Gandhi ever wrote," the Raab Collection said in a press statement.
Nathan Raab, Principal at Raab Collection, described the letter as the embodiment of Gandhi's vision for a world of religions at peace.
"His belief in Jesus as a teacher of mankind shows his efforts to find commonality with his fellow man," he said.
"Our research discloses no other letter of Gandhi mentioning Jesus to have ever reached the public market," the historical-document dealer said.
