Negative reasoning such as harming and the rest……

Patanjali Yoga Sutra

vitarkāḥ hiṃsā-ādayaḥ
iti pratipakṣa-bhāvanam |

“Negative reasoning such as harming and the rest;
may be done, brought about, or by approval;
is preceded by greed, anger or delusion;
may be mild, moderate or intense;
its infinite fruits are suffering and ignorance;
thus cultivate the opposite side.”
– Yoga Sūtra Chapter Two verse 34
