Product Description

Review

Satish Kumar offers us the gift of So Hum - 'You Are, Therefore I Am'. His mental journey and inspirations need to become everyone's inspiration, to help us to move from violence to non-violence, from greed to compassion, from arrogance to humility. Vandana Shiva Satish Kumar is, for me, the sage of the deep ecology movement. Fritjof Capra, author of The Tao of Physics and The Web of Life 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 Hazel Henderson, author of Creating Alternative Futures

This is a book of great insight and full of simple truths. Satish Kumar is a light in the darkness of a confused materialistic world. What he offers are suggestions as to how we might be able to get out of a fix through the stories of encounters with visionary people. One to read again and again.

Cheers

Format: Paperback
If we had to live in a world where it was only possible to read one book in a life-time this is the book I would choose. Never have I seen in one volume such a complete picture of the philosophy of unity and its relevance in daily life. The author explains, with clarity, depth and simplicity, things that it has taken me 30 years to learn without the benefit of his work. It would be very difficult to read this book without having your life changed in very positive ways. A work of outstanding excellence.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Bess_Wheat VINE VOICE on 27 May 2013
Format: Paperback
The book is split into four parts, each focusing on a different era in Kumar's life. The first part details his upbringing and interest in spiritual pursuits. He describes the teachings of his illiterate but spiritual mother who encourages his development in accordance with Jain principles. This allows him to perceive and appreciate the wonder and beauty of the natural world. He leaves his mother on a journey to experience his inner spiritual quest. But as part of a monastic order, he feels disconnected from the outer world. Risking the shame felt by his mother, he leaves the order.

The second part concerns his meetings with other inspirational leaders such as Bertrand Russell and Martin Luther King. They encourage Kumar to pursue and experience liberation in different ways. The third part details his travels through India where he experiences different ways of life and ways to connect to the universal. In the last part, he draws together the messages scattered throughout the book stating that a relational philosophy rather than a divided viewpoint is needed to make progress both spiritually and socially. Perceiving everything as connected, we can be aware of our impact on other people and the environment. This is a lovely, spiritually inspiring book and I highly recommend it. In fact, I would now like to read Kumar's autobiography and learn more about his life.

If you enjoy Satish Kumar's writings you will like this book. Some parts of the book probably have been touched upon already in his autobiography, but this doesn't detract from it being an inspiring read by a remarkable person.
