Now more than ever, it's important for yogis to work for peace. But before we can take peace out into the world, we need to first bring it into our lives.
That's the idea behind My Peace Vow, a site that encourages all beings to work towards ahimsa (nonharming). "We must take back the control to
take back inner harmony," says Mother Maya Tiwari, the
spiritual leader and founder of the Wise Earth School of Ayurveda. "To transform violence into
awareness by cultivating ahimsa within. To heal poverty, to stop crimes,
to protect nature and humanity."
Integrating ancient wisdom with modern technology, Mother Maya has set
up a virtual way to work for inner peace. "Ahimsa must first be cultivated in the mind," she says.
On the site, you can take a Peace Vow, renew the vow, leave a comment, and learn how to deepen your practice of ahimsa.
