We often talk about punishing those that harm others. We rarely discuss and celebrate those who actively non-harm. Ahimsa is not pacifism. It is not accepting the harmful. It is the propagation the way of least harm.
It is not always easy to decide what is Ahimsa and what is Himsa. We need to consider very carefully our decisions and with a good heart decide the right course of action applying this principle.
The Mahabharata on many occasions describes non-violence as the highest duty to the world. This is a rule we can apply to everything we do. Whether through our diets, speech, thoughts, relationships, work, religion, anything.
Ahimsa is the highest Dharma and it is something to cherish.
Wishing you well,
