Jain Yogashastra




All living beings are souls, with consciousness and the breath of life, like me. Just as I welcome happiness and find pain offensive, all beings enjoy happiness and dislike pain. Upon thinking about this, as it applies to all beings, I will not act in a way that would cause such undesired violence, torment, or loss of life to any living being.

Jain Yogashastra
Acharya Hemachandra (1089-1173)
