Download the PDF: The Value Of Voluntary Simplicity
By Richard Gregg, originally published in August, 1936 in the Indian Journal Visva-Bharati Quarterly and by the Quakers at Wallingford, PA: Pendle Hill, 1936. This is the original article on voluntary simplicity that inspired me to write his book by the same name in 1981. Gregg was a Harvard graduate and a student of Gandhi’s teachings. In this article, Gregg explores the spiritual, social, and economic reasons for choosing a life path of greater simplicity.
