Originating in ancient Eastern spirituality, ahimsa is becoming more prevalent as a principal of ethical living on a global scale. Its meaning can be described simply as “non-injury”. A slightly more complex meaning of ahimsa is “the removal of the desire to kill”.

On a deeper level, it even applies to removing the intention of injury before any physical action is followed through.
