Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahimsā, Pāli:[1] avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘not to injure’ and ‘compassion’.[2][3] The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm.[4][5] Ahimsa is also referred to asnonviolence, and it applies to all living beings—including all animals—according to many Indian religions.[6]

It is prayer to Agni not to harm the people, not what is understood from Ahimsa as a principle as is mentioned generally as a term. Right?
