Many of the Yoga practitioners
believe in “Ahimsa”.
Ahimsa is a Sanskrit word
that means “not to injure”
It is one of the key philosophy
that Ancient Indian religion holds.
Ahimsa is often referred and
translated as “nonviolence”.
Mahatma Gandhi was a great leader
who brought independence for India
without using violence.
Ahimsa, of course, means that
we don’t hit, kick, kill, etc.
Yet that is not all.
In actuality, it means so much more.
Ahimsa means to love other living beings
and live in harmony with each other.
We co-create peaceful environment
for all humans and other creatures.
Ahimsa also means that we treat
ourselves with love and respect.
Unless we truly learn to love and
respect ourselves, we cannot love
and respect others.
When we are too critical of others,
we are critical of ourselves.
We must accept ourselves as we are.
When we are demanding too much
of others, we are also demanding
too much of ourselves. We become
too strict, too busy, and workaholic
When we don’t truly believe
we deserve the best,
we don’t really believe
others deserve the best.
Taking a good care of yourself is
a seed of Ahimsa.
Everything starts from compassion.
We are one with the Universe.
