“Thoreau, Gandhi, Schumacher... Over the last century or so, a number of original thinkers have had the audacity to suggest that economics is not only about how humanity satisfies its needs but also about what those needs should be. It appears that they were onto something, for, today, it is precisely excessive human needs that have brought the earth to a state of crisis. If there is to be a way forward, it will likely involve the exemplary rethinking being led by people such as Abhay and Jane at the Pink House.”—Robert Leonard, Intellectual historian and Schumacher scholar, Université du Québec à Montréal

“At a time when so few of us can envision a truly imaginative future, Pink House has found a way. I applaud these efforts and support them as best I can.”—Carol Becker, Writer/Professor/Dean Columbia University

Sisyphus and Arjuna

 When times are hard I remind myself that the wise of the East and the West have talked about such times with equal wisdom. 

For example, Camus and Krishna teach a lesson that is startlingly similar. (1)

We are entitled to our life’s work but not to its fruits.

Thus Sisyphus with his giant boulder and Arjuna with Gandiva, his divine bow, separated though they are by oceans of both time as well as space, must simply do their work.

And leave the fruits of that work to Providence.
