The first of Patanjali’s 8 Limbs of Yoga lays the Yamas, and one of them is Ahimsa. Ahimsa is
the practice of non-harming or non-violence, which includes physical, mental, and emotional
violence towards others and the self. This means I should not intentionally hurt others in my
thoughts, actions and behavior, and I should not do that to myself either. Trying to practise this,
I question myself, what are my thoughts creating? What kind of energy am I giving to the
receiving person? What are my actions directed to? Learning that I cannot control how others
feel, the best I could do is giving with as much love and integrity as possible. Show kindness to
self and others, with no intention of harm, and therefore no judgment, criticism, anger and
irritation as much as possible.
