Passion with Detachment

Dr. Vandana Shiva is one of the leaders and board members of the International Forum on Globalization, (along with Jerry Mander, Edward Goldsmith, Ralph Nader, and Jeremy Rifkin), and a figure of the global solidarity movement known as the alter-globalization movement. She has argued for the wisdom of many traditional practices, as is evident from her interview in the book Vedic Ecology (by Ranchor Prime) that draws upon India’s Vedic heritage. She is a member of the scientific committee of the Fundacion IDEAS, Spain’s Socialist Party’s think tank. She is also a member of the International Organization for a Participatory Society. She was awarded the Right Livelihood Award in 1993.

In the video, Dr. Vandana Shiva is speaking to a small group of friends in Dehradun, India at the Navdanya Organic Farm which is at the foothills of the Himalayas the eve of Kumba Mela 2010.  A beautiful way to end the Gandhi Legacy tour spending time in good company.  Filmed by Lynnea Bylund.
