The Intimate and the Ultimate by Vinoba Bhave
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Widely regarded as Gandhi's spiritual successor, Vinoba Bhave continued Gandhi's work of spiritual and social enlightenment after his assassination, and became a beacon of hope to millions of impoverished Indian people. Saint, scholar, sage, social reformer and spiritual master, his radical activism was driven by his beliefs, and compassion was the inspiration for his social and economic reforms. He is best known for founding the Bhoodan or land-gift movement:?motivated by the plight of the landless poor, he walked all over India persuading wealthy landowners to part with a portion of their land. In all he collected over five million acres of land in gifts, which he redistributed to the poor. During this great journey, he talked about the relationship between the intimate self and the ultimate God. The Intimate and the Ultimate is a selected anthology of Vinoba's speeches and writings. it is an valuable guide for all seekers of truth, non-violence and wisdom, and for those who value quality above quantity, and wholeness above fragmentation. We are delighted to be able to reprint this book, and bring Vinoba's powerful message to a new generation.
