Born in India, Kumar became a Jain monk at the age of 9. Influenced by Gandhi's writings, he left the order and became an activist in the Land Reform Movement. At 18, he walked through the length of India persuading landlords to donate land to the landless. Approximately five million acres of land were collected in gifts and donated to the poor.

Kumar then took an 8,000-mile journey for disarmament. He walked from India, through Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, the former Soviet Union, Poland, Germany, Belgium, France, England and America, where he was received at the White House by the Disarmament Adviser to President Johnson. He is the author of "No Destination", co-founder of Schumacher College, and editor of the magazine, "Resurgence".
