Nelson Mandela explains ‘Ubuntu’

Here is a video of Nelson Mandela explaining the meaning of Ubuntu.

In the old days, a traveller through our country would stop at a village and he didn’t have to ask for food or water.  Once he stops, the people give him food… that is one aspect of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu does not mean that people should not address themselves.  The question is, are you going to do so to enable the community around you… to improve? These are the important things in life.  And if one can do that we’ve got something very important which will be appreciated.

– Nelson Mandela

“Respect, helpfulness, sharing, community, caring, trust, unselfishness… One word can mean so much.”

Indeed.
