Join a month-long exploration of the first of yamas, Ahimsa (Non-Violence).

You are probably not a violent person outwardly. But what about inwardly? Can your thoughts hurt yourself, or others? The principle of ahimsa must be understood not only in outward, gross ways but in subtle, inner ways as well. This is true for all the yamas and niyamas – the do’s and don’ts of the spiritual path. It is not so much what we do outwardly, as our inner attitudes of the heart.

In this course, you will:

  • Reflect on the types/qualities of thoughts that you habitually hold
  • Become aware of any ingrained mental attitudes and subtle thoughts that can be harmful to others and yourself
  • Learn and practice tools and techniques that help overcome and transform such tendencies.

How this course is structured:

  • The first class (30 January) includes Paramhansa Yogananda’s teaching on this yogic philosophy, guided introspection, and experiential exercises
  • Weekly assignments to practice different aspects of Ahimsa every week
  • Group sharing and inspiration about ongoing practice, every Sunday (6, 13 & 20 February)
  • Spiritual inspirations and tips shared regularly on WhatsApp throughout the month of February

Bring transforming yogic philosophy into daily life, and live it. By the end of the course, you should have new patterns of thought and expanded awareness about how to connect with yourself, others, and the world at large.

Program Fee: Rs.1,000
