    I walk every day. I love to walk. I try to use it as a moving meditation while remaining aware of the beauty of my surroundings. This wonderful man has reminded me what a privilege and a pleasure it is to do so. I will try to be more mindful in the future and thank him for sharing his wisdom with me..

    It reminded me to thank the earth whenever I am walking for all that she provides. And it's not the destination that is important, but the journey itself. So inspiring! We're all in this together. Thank you.

    What inspired me about this video was the fusion of the beauty of Earth imagery (kudos to the videographers) with the beauty of this man's ethics in creating an action for peace that touched many people, and is still touching us now fifty years later. This interview expresses some of the poignancy of these interactions along his remarkable journey: http://www.context.org/iclib/ic17/kumar/ Thank you, Satish, for trusting this world and helping to encourage it and us to be more peaceful.
