The Most Powerful Word - Care2

Ahimsa: this word means so much to some people, and so little to others. To me, Ahimsa is the most powerful word in the universe. Although Ahimsa, a word derived from Sanskrit, means nonviolence when directly translated, it been interpreted to mean many things, including love, forgiveness, sacrifice, truth, the absence of enmity, and strength. Prescribed by wise sages throughout history as the most effective way to temper the bestial nature in man, taking the vow of Ahimsa means resolving to refrain from causing any harm either by thought, word or action to any living creature. Although one can never truly achieve Ahimsa due to the limitations of the physical existence and our own human nature, ancient teachings state that the pursuit of this divine ideal will be accompanied by the gain of countless virtues.
