Short biography
Satish Kumar was born in India on 3 June 1936. He was a Jain Monk for nine years and later studied Buddhism and Hindu philosophy. Living in the West over the last thirty years has shown him both the need and practicality of applying these principles to daily affairs. He is Editor of Resurgence magazine, Director of Programs at Schumacher College and an internationally renowned speaker on ecological and spiritual issues. Satish Kumar is the author of three other books: No Destination: An Autobiography; You Are, Therefore I Am: A Declaration of Dependence and The Buddha and the Terrorist: The Story of Angulimala. He has made a 50-minute program for BBC2 as part of the Natural World Series called Earth Pilgrim, which demonstrates his holistic view of nature.
