Ahimsa Is The Highest Virtue

No teaching higher than Self Realization

Ahimsa (nonviolence) is the primary ideal and the virtue to be cultivated on the yogic path to Self-Realization. This is a subtle, deep, and fundamental psychological and spiritual truth.

Why such an emphasis on Ahimsa by the sages?

It is because the perfect and calm state of relaxed awareness is only possible in a mind that is free of all violence.

It is in this state that Grace takes over and allows the pure devotee to surrender fully to God who sits in the Heart, as the Universal Heart, and recognize it to be the Self, one’s very own Self.

  2. Reblogged this on mira prabhu and commented:
    Ahimsa…a Sanskrit word that has spread all over our globe. Non-violence – a synonym for Love. As I prepare for my dawn practice, I make sure to release any toxic feelings that have arisen since the day before – one simply cannot dive deep into the heart when there is anger or dislike for anyone. Negativity retards the rise of consciousness. So Ahimsa is not just a marvelous thing to practice towards others, first of all it benefits us, mind and body. Thank you for this, Harsh Luthar!

  3. Ahimsa is probably the most transformative power in this world. It liberated a country; furthered the civil rights in another; and provided the basis for reconciliation in a third. Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Nelson Mandela are living examples of the changes Ahimsa can bring about.
