Our Chelsea Green Authors : Satish Kumar
Satish Kumar is an internationally renowned speaker on ecological and spiritual issues. He is the author of The Buddha and the Terrorist; No Destination; You Are, Therefore I Am; and Spiritual Compass. He lives in North Devon, England.
In Earth Pilgrim, Satish Kumar draws on his personal experience and also his understanding of the spiritual traditions of both East and West. The book takes the form of conversations between Kumar and others about the inner and outer aspects of pilgrimage: “To be a pilgrim is to be on a path of adventure, to move out of our comfort zones, to let go of our prejudices and preconditioning, to make strides towards the unknown.” If we want to tread the pilgrim’s path, we need to go beyond ideas of good and evil and to be dedicated to our quest—to our natural calling. We need to shed not just our unnecessary material possessions but also our burdens of fear, anxiety, doubt, and worry; in this way we can find spiritual renewal and enter on the great adventure into the unknown.
