Synopsis: Written with elegance and penetrating simplicity, Path Without Destination is the exhilarating account of the extraordinary life of Satish Kumar. At nine years of age, Satish renounced the world, left his home in rural India, and joined a wandering brotherhood of beggar monks until an inner voice guided him to Gandhi's vision of a peaceful world. Spurred to action, Satish undertook an eight-thousand-mile peace pilgrimage -- walking from India to America without money and through deserts, mountains, storms, and floods.

His inspiring journey, recounted in this memoir, led him to settle in England, where he became one of the leaders with E. F. Schumacher of the "small is beautiful" movement and was the guiding spirit behind a number of ecological, spiritual, and educational ventures. Today he is the editor of Resurgence magazine and he travels and lectures worldwide. His is a call to each of us to embrace human scale, strong communities and ecological awareness.

Review: 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
