Written with a penetrating simplicity, the book, No Destination by Satish Kumar is an exhilarating account of an extraordinary life.

About the author:

When he was only nine years old, Satish Kumar renounced the world and joined the wandering brotherhood of Jain monks. Dissuaded from this path by an inner voice at the age of eighteen, he became a campaigner for land reform, working to turn Gandhi’s vision of a renewed India into reality.

Fired by the example of Bertrand Russell, he undertook an 8,000-mile peace pilgrimage, walking from India to America without any money, through mountains, deserts, storms and snow. It was an adventure during which he was thrown into jail in France, faced a loaded gun in America, and delivered packets of 'peace tea' to the leaders of the four nuclear powers.

In 1973 he settled in England, taking on the editorship of Resurgence magazine, and becoming the guiding light behind a number of ecological, spiritual and educational ventures, including Schumacher College.

Following Indian tradition, in his fiftieth year he undertook another pilgrimage:again without any money, he walked to the holy places of Britain - Glastonbury, Lindisfarne, and Iona.
