Audio CD Cultural Nonviolence (New Dimensions)
By Satish Kumar
What does baking bread have to do with creating a culture of nonviolence? What steps can we take as individuals to help bring about global peace? In the spirit of Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Jesus, Satish Kumar brings a gentle wisdom to the difficult questions that must be answered if we are to end the pattern of destruction that threatens our world today.
His simple, yet comprehensive perspective, addresses the violence that is pervasive in human society, and, amazingly, offers realistic solutions based on trust, justice, community, sustainability - and simply taking time to be reverential about something as fundamental as baking bread. But good ideas, he says, are not enough. “Our world is full of good ideas. There's no shortage of information. There's a shortage of practice. Information does not lead to transformation. For transformation you need experience. You have to live your truth. You have to live your compassion.”
