Ahimsa: Non-Harming To Others

The great yogic sage Master Patanjali taught that non-violence towards others is the most important action and social ethic anyone can practice to uplift their own lives as well as the life of others. Non-violence means consciously reducing harm and whenever possible refraining from causing pain or suffering to any living creature, either by thought, word, or deed. At Yogi's Ark our mission is based on the following:

Ahimsa: Non-harming, consciously choosing to be kind towards all creatures

Sharanam: Refuge, providing a sanctuary for sentient beings

Karuna: Compassion

Sattva: Lightness, promoting an enlightened diet based on non-violent foods

Karma: Action, actively working with other animal rescue organizations, high-kill shelters, and research facilities

Satya: Truth, passionately advocating the importance of spaying and neutering and veganism

Satsung: Fellowship, building a community based on kindness and love

Yoga: Union, bonding with animals and nature in a mutually beneficial way
