When non-violence in speech, thought and action is established, one's aggressive nature is relinquished and others abandon hostility in one's presence.
When the yogi has soundly realised the nature of violence, he is established firmly in the practice of non-violence. Peace in words, thoughts and deeds, whether awake or dreaming, is a sign of benevolence and love towards all.
In the vicinity of a yogi, men and animals who are otherwise brutal and hostile towards each other, dispose off their hostility and demonstrate friendliness and mutual tolerance.
