Ahimsa is an ancient Sanskrit word which means non-violence in thought, speech and action. We believe that Ahimsa is at the core of all living beings, and once it is fully discovered, it's a powerful force which leads to the betterment of self, society and the planet. Our organization conducts camps and workshops focused on applying Ahimsa to daily living.
