"A rare pleasure." -- Kirkpatrick Sale, author of The Green Revolution
"Compelling." -- Theodore Roszak, author of The Making of a Counter Culture
"If you've ever felt the truth arise within you while sitting beside a quiet stream or lingering under a sky full of stars, you know what it's like to read Satish Kumar's autobiography Path Without Destination. Kumar left home at the age of nine to become a wandering Jain monk and has never stopped wandering. His political consciousness began with a Gandhi-inspired walk from India to Britain and two principles: eat no meat and carry no money. This lifestyle of simplicity and nonviolent political activity has carried Kumar through endeavors as diverse as participating in land reform activism in the Indian countryside, founding the London School of Nonviolence, serving as editor of the international magazine Resurgence, taking part in activism for rural education in the U.K., and making another pilgrimage--a religious one around England. Kumar's is the story of another kind of success, one of gentle truth and justice achieved with no resources other than an unwavering core of spirituality. Page after languid page, that spirituality seeps into his readers' being." -- Brian Bruya, amazon.com
"Life-changing." -- Thomas Moore, author of Care of the soul
"Satish Kumar's unique story is stranger than fiction. The life of this vigorous, wise, compassionate and humble man is an example to all of us about how to make the most of our gifts and create our own opportunities to serve humanity's future. I am honoured to be his friend and colleague." -- Hazel Henderson, author of Creating Alternate Futures
