Satish Kumar: Pilgrim of Peace

"During the Cold War, when the world was tense with mistrust, Satish Kumar walked nearly 13,000 kilometres, with no money, through the four nuclear capitals of the world ... It wasn't Satish's first odyssey. At nine, he left his mother's home to join the wandering Jain monks. He remained with them until he read Gandhi, and began to believe more could be achieved through engagement with global problems, rather than by detachment. That year, at 18, he ran away to become a student of [Vinoba] Bhave's, where he learnt non-violence as a means to peace and land reform. Now 77, Satish has been a quiet revolutionary for more than 50 years slowly shifting the social and ecological agenda." Read on for a fascinating interview with this peace pilgrim.
