Banyen's Description: 

The spring of 2003 witnessed historical worldwide demonstrations for nonviolence. Millions upon millions of humans took the time to stand, walk and gather for peace. At a time when eloquent, inspiring voices for peace are more important than ever, Catherine Ingram presents individuals whose positive work has been part of international news for decades. Now in a revised edition, In the Footsteps of Gandhi consists of remarkable, touching, probing interviews with leading spiritual social activists of our century, including Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Ram Dass, Joan Baez, Gary Snyder, Joanna Macy, Cesar Chavez, David Steindl-Rast, A.T. Ariyaratne, Diane Nash, and Mubarak Awad.

The dozen men and women in this book are a few of my personal heroes and heroines who embody the ideals which I feel are most needed in our world. Their words are a reminder that our steps here and now will condition what is to come. They also tell us that our heart already knows what is true, and that troubled times such as these are a call for us to listen deeply to that “still small voice” within, and to act on it. In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., “I know somehow that only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars.”

“Ingram’s questions permit no resting on laurels. She uses all conversational devices to draw out her subjects and break new ground.” —Yoga Journal

 

 

“To live for the benefit of others heals us. These are interviews with men and women who tread the path of compassionate action and leave markers to point the way. A wonderful book!” —Stephen and Ondrea Levine

Catherine Ingram is a Dharma teacher who has also written Passionate Presence: Experiencing the Seven Qualities of Awakened Awareness—highly recommended!
