Online Workshop With Japanese Translation

Ahimsa As A Yogic Practice

(Ways to Practice Non-Violence In Your Daily Life)

With Master
Dr. O. P. Tiwari Ji

A Sanskrit term, ahimsa is formed from the root words, himsa, which means “to cause harm” or “to engage in violence”; and the prefix, a, which negates what follows it. Therefore, ahimsa means “non-violence.”

Ahimsa is a central concept in yoga and means “non-harming” or “non-violence.” It is the first of the five yamas (ethical principles) in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and is often translated as “non-violence.”

The idea is to cultivate a state of being in which one is not causing harm or suffering to oneself or others, both physically and mentally. This includes refraining from harming others through words or actions, as well as cultivating a state of mind that is not filled with anger, hatred, or resentment.

In addition to being an ethical principle, ahimsa can also be practiced as a form of yoga in and of itself. This can involve things like practicing non-violent communication, being mindful of the impact of one’s actions on others and the environment, and actively working to reduce suffering in the world. It can also involve cultivating a sense of compassion and understanding for others, as well as working to forgive those who have caused harm.

There are many potential benefits to participating in an online workshop on ahimsa as a yogic practice:
