Ahimsa (Sanskrit: Devanagari; अहिंसा; IAST ahiṃsā, Pāli: avihiṃsā) is a term meaning to do no harm (literally: the avoidance of violence – himsa). It is an important tenet of the Indian religions (Hinduism, Buddhism and especially Jainism). Ahimsa means kindness and non-violence towards all living things including animals; it respects living beings as a unity, the belief that all living things are connected. Indian leader Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi strongly believed in this principle.[1] Avoidance of verbal and physical violence is also a part of this principle, although ahimsa recognizes self-defense when necessary, as a sign of a strong spirit. It is closely connected with the notion that all kinds of violence entail negative karmic consequences.

In My Room – Best Coast

When I grow up, get married, pop out a babelah & all that jazz, I want to have my own private room. It will be ALL MINE and possibly look something like this –

And I’ll play tunes like this Flat Duo Jets‘ jam (My Life, My Love)

& X’s Under the Big Black Sun

And, I’m going to lounge around in a halter & hot pants wearing shoes like these “hollywood stiletto heels” while reading the yoga sutras.

PS: you’ll have to have a secret password to get through the door.
