Mission Statement

AHIMSA is the Sanskrit word for nonviolence. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of a harmonious and nonviolent world by exploring how religion, science, and social action impact our awareness. Our goal is to seek pathways for understanding, and to encourage every individual to seek and find his or her own truth and wisdom. Our founding dedication is to expanding the role of spiritual awareness in everyday life. To this end, a central goal is to encourage dialogues on issues which bridge spirituality and various science and social issues --areas of rapidly changing world knowledge and impact.

Description

AHIMSA is a San Francisco Bay Area non-profit, nonsectarian foundation. Drawing on both Eastern and Western faith traditions, AHIMSA was founded in 1993 to mark the Centennial of the Chicago Parliament of Religions. The acronym AHIMSA stands for "Agency for Human Interconnectedness through Manifestation of Spiritual Awareness". Ahimsa is also a word in Sanskrit meaning nonviolence, which is so essential for the promotion of love, compassion and harmony in society. The philosophy of ahimsa, universal love, is the living practice of nonviolence -- perceiving and acting truthfully at the deepest levels of spiritual unity.
