The word is not the deed.

Do no harm, that includes to yourself.
Harm comes from thougth and lack of thought, words and silence, action and inaction.

Ahimsa is not love.
Ahimsa is not sacrifice.
Ahimsa is not salvation.

Life has harm. Many little lives end every day so that we continue. We cannot eliminate harm.

We can choose to not harm.

The word ahimsa has meaning like the term cardiovascular-system not like the word happiness.
