Ahimsa: Dynamic Compassion

A Nonviolence Anthology




“The choice today is no longer between violence and non-violence.
It is either non-violence or non-existence.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Ahimsa is a way of relating to all life with complete empathy. Respect, loyalty, forgiveness, thoughtfulness, and understanding of right relationship in the light of ahimsa leads to speech which has no thorns and to thoughts and actions that do no harm.

This unique anthology is essentially a psychological study that transcends our ordinary understanding of human nature. It brings to light that long-silent and long-hidden inner consciousness that depth psychologists, spiritual leaders, political figures, scientists, philosophers, environmentalists, animal rights advocates and nonviolence activists of all persuasions have sought to bring to our conscious awareness over the centuries.

Featuring quotes from Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Peace Pilgrim, Dorothy Day, Joanna Macy, Thomas Merton, Albert Schweitzer and dozens of others, Ahimsa: Dynamic Compassion is both a testament to human possibility and an inspiring tool for change.
