Earth Pilgrim

I have just finished Satish Kumar’s biography ‘No Destination’ and have felt so inspired by it I have joined The Resurgence Trust, which produces Resurgence magazine, which focuses on eco-spiritual issues. If you join online they will send you a free copy of Satish’s documentary film ‘Earth Pilgrim’ which is the closest television has ever got to creating a meditative experience. It features him talking about life and his love of Dartmoor, and has the most beautiful photography. You can see read details about the trust here.

Here is a quote from the penultimate page of ‘No Destination’:

“The Roman Empire did not last forever. The British Empire, over which the sun never set, came to an end. Communist control of the Societ bloc, once so powerful, has disappeared into history. Slavery ended, apartheid ended, and there is no reason to believe that the ecologicaly unsustainable and personally dissatisfying forces of materialism manifested in money-dominated economies will last forever.” Satish Kumar
