What does Ahimsa mean?
Some say if you master Ahimsa there is no further spiritual work to be done.
Ahimsa means non-harmfulness (harmlessness), to not wish harm to any living creature — not even to any lifeless object.
This doesn’t mean to not harm or kill, which can sometimes be inevitable, such as when one eats meat or even plants, or accidentally steps on bugs. Ahimsa is about the intent, rather than the action itself. It is an attitude of universal benevolence.(1)
Ahimsa is the first of the yamas {things one should do}. Patanjali says that once ahimsa is mastered, even wild animals and ferocious criminals will become tame and harmless in our presence.
Ahimsa, rightly understood, is the ultimate weapon; it turns one’s enemy into a friend, thereby banishing the possibility of further conflict. In the practice of yoga, it is important to understand that the same life flows in the veins of all creatures.
What Patanjali referred to, essentially, was the attitude of the mind, rather than the literal acts of the body. It is one’s attitude that can either lead him toward liberation, or hold him in greater bondage. An attitude of harmlessness (and its corollary, a feeling of universal benevolence) is what is meant by ahimsa. It is not possible in any case kill anyone: The soul is immortal. What is possible, however, by wishing harm to another living being, is develop a consciousness of death, which causes harm to the perpetrator.
The principle of ahimsa must be understood in subtle ways, not only in gross. To harm anyone in the slightest way, even by disrespect, will harm the person doing the action as well as the one receiving it. The perfect practice of ahimsa, then, is very rare. For though not many people would actually kill their fellows, it is common to find people slashing at one another with angry words, or with contemptuous glances


What is Yoga?
Yoga means ‘union’ or ‘connection’. In Sanskrit, the word ‘yoga’ is used to signify any form of connection. Yoga is both a state of connection and a body of techniques that allow us to connect to anything.
Conscious connection to something allows us to feel and experience that thing, person, or experience. The experience of connection is a state of yoga, a joyful and blissful, fulfilling experience.
Awareness is the secret of yoga.





What happened to hip hop???

By Rakim

Violence sells and power sells and when artists were going looking for a record label and they weren't bringing the ruckus, if you ain’t got the prettiest cars in the hood or the biggest chains if you ain’t selling k’s and if you aren't with the flyest chicks they don’t want to hear. So the powers that be coheres into allot of it but now we starting to feed into it, to almost the point of no return. The conscious level in the hood is kind of low right now because of that. The majority rules so if the majority is coming out speaking blue and someone else coming out speaking grey its hard to get people to see that colour because there is so much blue out there. You know what i mean? So if we can put a balance back in it man, soon people will understand its their choice first. Hopefully time will come full circle again as this cant last.


What does Ahimsa Rebirth mean?
Ahimsa is a rebirth festival as we are not only focusing on bringing real hip hop back or keeping it alive, we are literally rebirthing the whole thing, rebirthing hip hop with the ancient healings integrated into it, so the next generation have a platform to work from of a vibration so high that they don't want to drop they want to expand from here and make this the new norm of consciousness on the streets.. and of the streets….



Why Hip Hop and Yoga?
Hip hop and Yoga are from the same roots as yogis understand the elements of the universe that make up our body and the universe, these elements are also the components of hip hop.

EARTH WATER FIRE AIR AND EITHER OR SPACE

.DANCIN or BREAK DANCIN.EMCEEIN.GRAFFITIN.DEEJAYIN .MIXIN

We can also begin or remember to see that hip hop expression aligns perfectly and can be understood by the qualities in each of the chakras.

So Ahimsa Festival is simply an accumulation and expression of the energies from each of the chakras or energy centres in the body ..
