How to live as a pilgrim,
embracing elegant simplicity to find fellowship with all
In this episode Amisha sits down with Satish Kumar - co-founder of Schumacher College, editor of Resurgence magazine and a global activist.
They discuss his childhood as a Jain monk, the encounter with death which began his spiritual education, and why he walked out of monastic life - walking 8000 miles from the birthplace of Ghandi to four nuclear capitals of the world.
Satish explores the Jain philosophy of nonviolence and gives advice on how to live life as a pilgrim rather than a commuter - explaining why we would benefit from all working only 3 days a week.
"Become the CEO of your own life... Earn less money, have more time. Consume less, buy less, have less possessions. Have good food... You cannot have a happy life on a bad diet. Everything else simple. Elegant simplicity." - Satish Kumar
