Satish describes his pilgrimage to the world’s centres for violent weapons. This pilgrimage took the form of a walk, to Moscow, Paris, London, Washington, thousands of miles. Because the pilgrimage was in the form of a walk, it generated great interest, as a human story.
Satish Kumar is an Indian, currently living in England, who has been a Jain monk and a nuclear disarmament advocate, and is the current editor of Resurgence, founder and Director of Programmes of the Schumacher College international centre for ecological studies and of The Small School. His most notable accomplishment is a “peace walk” with a companion to the capitals of four of the nuclear-armed countries – Washington, London, Paris and Moscow, a trip of over 8,000 miles. He insists that reverence for nature should be at the heart of every political and social debate.
