    Why the mispelling of Ahimsa? Or have I and all others been mispelling this for the last 25 years? I feel this may cause confusion in new people. Or is this a lack of attention by the composers and monitors of this blog? Please help.

    Thank You Teresa for your question about the spelling of Ahinsa/Ahimsa. Ancient Sanskrit used the pronunciation Ahinsa, however, modern language and the internet has chosen Ahimsa as the Indian Sanskrit word for non-violence. Both have the same meaning and I will be changing the word Ahinsa to Ahimsa on this site to create clarity. Non-violence, however it is spelled, is what we all aspire to practice in our lives. Love to You.
