EARTH PILGRIM Satish Kumar
Satish Kumar believes that we now need a new kind of pilgrim - Earth Pilgrims - who are concerned with this world, not the next, and who are seeking a deep commitment to a life of connectivity, in the here and now. To be a pilgrim, says Satish, is to be on a path of adventure, to move out of our comfort zones, to let go of our prejudices and preconditioning, and to make strides towards the unknown. Satish shows that, in order to find spiritual and social renewal, we need to shed not just our unnecessary material possessions but also our burdens of fear, anxiety, doubt and worry. So, if we want to tread the earth pilgrim's path, we need to go beyond ideas of good and evil, and to be dedicated to our quest - to live in harmony with the natural world . . . and with our own souls.
