No destination by Satish Kumar( )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. 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. Written with a penetrating simplicity, No Destination is an exhilarating account of an extraordinary life. The new hardback 4th edition is published in 2014 to commemorate 25 years since the foundation of Schumacher College, with new chapters about the college and to bring Satish's story up-to-date

Visionaries : the 20th century's 100 most important inspirational leaders( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in Thai and English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Visionaries brings together the lives and works of a hundred great men and women who offer inspiration, hope, and healing." "The twentieth century was marked by wars, dictatorships, and environmental destruction, yet many individuals kept alive the hope of a sane and sustainable future through their example, ideas, and vision. Their influence helped bring to an end colonialism and imperialism, apartheid, and authoritarian regimes, and they also helped foster the resurgence of an ecological, holistic, and spiritual vision that increasingly resonates in the world today. Many struggled for years in obscurity; at times their leadership has been recognized with the highest honors. Among those profiled, ten have been awarded the Nobel Prize and nine the Right Livelihood Award."--Jacket

Satish Kumar has been a pilgrim ever since at the age of eight he joined the brotherhood of wandering Jain monks in his native India.

Documents how indigenous peoples stand up for their traditional sacred lands in defense of cultural survival, human rights and the environment. Volume 1: Pilgrims and tourists: "Around the world, indigenous communities stand in the way of government megaprojects. In the Russian republic of Altai, people create their own mountain parks to rein in tourism and resist a gas pipeline that would cut through a World Heritage Site. In Northern California, Winnemem Wintu girls grind herbs on a sacred rock, as elders protest government plans to enlarge one of the West's biggest dams and forever submerge this touchstone of a tribe." Volume 2: Profit and loss: From Papua New Guinea rainforests to Canada's tar sands, Profit and Loss exposes industrial threats to native peoples' health, livelihood and cultural survival. In Papua New Guinea, a Chinese government owned nickel mine has violently relocated villagers to a taboo sacred mountain, built a new pipeline and refinery on contested clan land, and is dumping mining waste into the sea. In Alberta, Canada, First nations people are facing rare cancers as their hunting grounds are stripmined. Volume 3: Fire and ice: : "From Ethiopia to Peru, indigenous customs protect biodiversity on sacred lands under pressure from religious conflicts and climate change. In the Gamo Highlands of Ethiopia, scientists confirm the benefits of traditional stewardship/indigenous customs that protect biodiversity, even as elders witness the decline of spiritual practices that have long protected trees, meadows and mountains. Tensions with evangelical Christians over a sacred meadow erupt into a riot. In the Peruvian Andes, the Q'eros, on a pilgrimage to a revered glacier, are driven from their ritual site by intolerant Catholics. Q'eros potato farmers face a more ominous foe: global warming is melting glaciers, their water source. Andes farmers, scientists and visiting Ethiopians struggle to adapt indigenous agriculture to the changing climate." Volume 4: Islands of sanctuary: "Native Hawaiians and Aboriginal Australians resist threats to their sacred places in a growing international movement to defend human rights and protect the environment. In Australia's Northern Territory, Aboriginal clans maintain Indigenous Protected Areas and resist the temptation and destructive effects of a mining boom. In Hawaii, indigenous ecological and spiritual practices are used to restore the sacred island of Kahoolawe after 50 years of military use as a bombing range." http://standingonsacredground.org/learn-more/synopses
