Nearly 50 years ago, Satish Kumar walked from India to the United States for peace, starting at the grave of Mahatma Gandhi and ending at the grave of John F. Kennedy. He walked without money, trusting in the kindness of strangers to support him. "Peace comes from trust. Wars come from fear." He advocates making peace with soil (nature), soul (yourself) and society (others) because the future well being of humanity and the earth is dependent on a new world view in which the care of the planet, nourishment of the soul and the nurturing of the human community are integrated.

    Wonderful speech coming direct from Satish Heart. I can imagine how difficult it would be to walk between countries. Great to see, hear and come to know a braveheart and headstrong person in Satish. It is really hard to digest what he has done. I absolutely agree with this philosophy of soil, soul and society.

    What inspired me is the simplicity of the man and the message. Peace comes from trust, anger comes from fear and projection. I am 75 and still discovering who I am.

  • Adolfo de Martino

    The walking A grand metaphore for the oldest - the holiest and most sacred of all human activities. Never more urgent to be re-discovered as a landmark shift in perception, a true paradigm shift, to help our vision change, our bodies attuned like instruments, and inform all our action as awakened custodian of mothership Earth

  • krishan chhabra

    A young man of 75 full of zeal and true concern for the cause he believes.This should be made into a documentary played in schools and colleges and more so for our politician friends.May God bless satish( love for nature/Truth)with good health so that he keeps inspiring the young and old alike to live with trust and not in fear.Regards and my salute to Satish.

    An important lesson is to learn to be at peace with yourself. Then to make peace with nature. The ultimate change comes from the individual in order to generate the strenght to mobilise the group

    This was deeply gratifying, and resonates on a such a deep level; it puts such perfect words on what we're trying to do with It also brings to mind Nipun Mehta's TEDxBerkeley talk on Designing for Generosity. All these beautiful golden threads weaving the same shining world ~ we're living in such amazing times!

  • Patricia

    This inspired man says it so simply... we won't have peace until we resolve our inner conflicts and are at peace with ourselves!

  • Colonel Ramesh Pathak

    Abasolutely incredible ! Amazing !! We are working with " Pachamama Alliance." Pacha means the Earth, The Universe and Time. We believe in creating Human Presence on Planet Earth. This presence should be Environmentally Sustainable, Spiritually Fulfilling ( or Uplifting ) and Socially Just. How do we get a copy of this video ? Is it possible to download it ? How ? Could someone help me ?

  • Jagdish

    This inspiring video ignited the lamp within me which has become somewhat faint due to the loss of my loved one, my wife.Hearing the synopsis of Satish Kimar's life story has rekindled my lamp. We all need to work on ourselves to remove the darkness within us to see the light within and share it unselfishly with others. I feel deeply connected with the lamp shining in Satish Kumar and others who are on the Peace Pilgrimage. With affection and gratitude, Jagdish P Dave
