"The word we translate as ‘nonviolence’ is a Sanskrit word central in Buddhism as well: ahimsa, the complete absence of violence in word and even thought as well as action. This sounds negative, just as ‘nonviolence’ sounds passive. But like the English word ‘flawless,’ ahimsa denotes perfection. Ahimsa is unconditional love; satyagraha is love in action."
