Biography of Satish Kumar

Satish Kumar was born in Rajasthan in India in 1936. When he was only nine years old, he renounced the world and joined the wandering brotherhood of Jain monks. Dissuaded from his path by an inner voice at the age of eighteen, he became a campaigner for land reform, working to turn Gandhi’s vision of renewed India and a peaceful world into reality. In 1973 he settled in England, taking on the editorship of Resurgence Magazine, and has been their editor ever since. He is the guiding spirit behind a number of ecological, spiritual and educational ventures in Britain. In 1991, Schumacher College, a residential international centre for the study of ecological and spiritual values, was founded, of which he is the Director of Programmes. He is the author of Path Without Destination (William Morrow, 2000) and You Are Therefore I Am (Green Books, 2002).

Satish Kumar has written the "Introduction" to Seeing God Everywhere: Essays on Nature and the Sacred and The "Foreword" to On the Origin of Beauty: Ecophilosophy in the Light of Traditional Wisdom, by John Griffin.
