Description: This book is now out of print and VERY hard to find new copies of. I have a handful of new copies left, and then they're gone - perhaps forever.

The predecessor to 'Buddhism at Work', this book concretely describes how a village movement in Sri Lanka draws on indigenous cultural and religious values to redefine the nature and purpose of development. It mobilizes and encourages popular participation, and mounts distinctive organizing strategies. It illustrates the relevance of religious traditions for any alternative development efforts in the developing and industrialized worlds.

Review(s): "An inspiring study of the Sarvodaya movement in Sri Lanka, built on the successful integration of spiritual values, community organization and self-reliance." - New Options

"This book is a fine combination of the reflective and the practical and can be thought of as an economic development manual in the best sense of the word." - Elise Boulding, professor, Dartmouth College
