So ubuntu means love, truth, peace and goodness, and has long guided African society. Nelson Mandela was a big advocate of ubuntu and its concepts of connection, community and mutual care – not just about the interaction between human beings, but also between people and nature. Ubuntu is very important in Africa and should also be so worldwide, as the world needs a common guiding principle of human values.

In this TED Talk, Boyd Varty narrates his experience with ubuntu, what he learnt from Nelson Mandela, how a friend risked his own life to save his, and how a herd of elephants seemed to behave under the same oneness and unity philosophy.
