On Monday, the term was mentioned in Meghan & # 39; s speech about gender-based violence during their visit to the & # 39; murder capital & # 39; from Cape Town.

& # 39; I am here with you and I am here for you and I thank you very much for showing my husband and I the spirit of Ubuntu, and I look forward to our time together in the coming days & # 39 ;, she said .

And now it is revealed that the book, given to Harry during his stay, explains how to do & # 39; Ubuntu & # 39; – a way to live peacefully and treat others as equals – to include them in your daily life.

The book comes with a preface from Archbishop Tutu, with whom the royal family was met on Tuesday.

Author Mungi took her Instagram photo to share a photo of Harry holding her book yesterday and writing: & # 39; Arch meets Archie meanwhile … I died and went to heaven. I hope the royal family enjoys my book & # 39 ;.

She explains the term in her book and says: & Ubuntu is a way of life from which we can all learn. And it's one of my favorite words. Whoever we are, wherever we live, whatever our culture is, ubuntu can help us to co-exist in harmony and peace.

& # 39; Ubuntu teaches us to look outside of ourselves to find answers. It's about seeing the bigger picture; the other side of the story. The meaning of the word "ubuntu" varies between African countries and tribes. Rooted in Zulu wisdom, the philosophy of ubuntu has been transmitted orally for generations.

& # 39; In my family we were brought up to understand that a person who has ubuntu is someone whose life is worth following. The foundation of philosophy is respect, for yourself and for others. So if you can see other people, even strangers, as people, you will never treat them as disposable or worthless. & # 39;

Mungi explains that Ubuntu is a way to look beyond yourself & # 39; to learn answers and lessons from others and the way you treat them.

Based on the concept that you have to live harmoniously next to each other, it is rooted in the lessons of the South African community after apartheid.

The first lesson in the book is to see & # 39; yourself in other people & # 39; – even those you may not like, to make it easier to communicate and treat them better.

Mungi would like to emphasize that & # 39; Ubuntu & # 39; should not be confused with kindness, and adds that it goes & # 39; deeper & # 39; and teaches us the inner meaning of everyone we encounter and the lessons they bring.

She adds that philosophy is based on the opposite of a materialistic life, where people are valued on the basis of superficial factors.

A rule in the book is: & # 39; Ubuntu teaches us the opposite of this and says that absolutely everyone on this earth is of equal value because our humanity is the most important.

& # 39; Instead of comparing ourselves with others, we should value the contributions of others to our daily lives. & # 39;
