Satish Kumar

Once a Jain monk, Satish Kumar renounced his vocation as a student, in order to join Gandhi’s agricultural reform. In 1961, he became known for his 12,000km peace walk against nuclear weaponry undertaken entirely without funding. Today, he is Editor in Chief of the magazine Resurgence, as well as Program Director at Schumacker College. Far from the cartesian logic that divides everything, Satish Kumar has a holistic vision of the world and encourages us to relish the simple joys in life.
