Satish Kumar: Walking for Peace

Satish Kumar: Walking for Peace

Transforming Divisions into Diversity

In 1962, Satish Kumar dedicated himself to undertaking an 8000 mile peace walk, from India to the four capitals of the nuclear world: Moscow, Paris, London and Washington D.C. promoting peace and non-violence. He called it a ‘Pilgrimage for Peace’.

This year, to commemorate the 50 year anniversary of his amazing pilgrimage, the now 80 year-old Kumar made a 50 mile pilgrimage along the river Thames.

“When you are walking, the destination is not important. The process of walking itself is your journey. In order to make peace we have to transform divisions into diversity.”

Satish Kumar is a former monk and long-term environmental and peace activist, who worked tirelessly to create a peaceful world, and to bring Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of a united, vibrant India, to fruition.

Here he shows how the simple act of walking can bring us Inner Peace.
