Satish Kumar shares new short films for peace
In response to recent geopolitical events in Ukraine, the originator and cofounder of Schumacher College, Satish Kumar, shares three short films, one urging political leaders to find common ground and to end the conflict, as well as recordings of his Prayer for Peace and a Meditation on the Unity of Life. Watch all three on this page.
Lead me from death to life, from falsehood to truth.
Lead me from despair to hope, from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love, from war to peace.
Let peace fill our heart, our world, our universe.
Satish is Visiting Fellow and was the originator and cofounder of Schumacher College.
A former monk and long-term peace and environment activist, Satish has been quietly setting the Global Agenda for change for over 50 years. He was just nine when he left his family home to join the wandering Jains and 18 when he decided he could achieve more back in the world, campaigning for land reform in India and working to turn Gandhi’s vision of a renewed and a peaceful world into reality.
In 1973 Satish settled in the United Kingdom taking up the post of editor of Resurgence magazine, a position he has held ever since, making him the UK’s longest-serving editor of the same magazine. During this time, he has been the guiding spirit behind a number of now internationally respected ecological and educational ventures including Schumacher College.
