Vinoba's aim was to create conditions which would "do away with the need to use even the power of the State." The achievement of this anarchist polity was to come about gradually - he was not anti-state; he hoped to bypass the structures on which the state rested and thus allow it to whither away.
His concerns, like Vinoba's, were centred on the problems of the human condition - freedom of the human personality, of the mind and of the spirit - but his quest was a political, not a spiritual one.
Vinoba, on the other hand, was a gradualist, far more concerned with the purity of the means than with any immediate ends that may be achieved.
