The Golden Rule
I was surprised to find that all the major religions of the world speak this truth. Maybe this is the only truth. Can you imagine what life would be like if everyone lived this truth daily.
Brahmanism – This is the sum of duty: do naught unto others which would cause you pain if done to you.
Buddhism – Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.
Confucianism – Surely it is the maxim of loving kindness: Do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you.
Taoism – Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain and your neighbor’s loss as your own loss.
Zoroastrianism – That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not good for itself.
Judaism – What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowman. That is the entire law; all the rest is commentary.
Christianity – All things whatsoever ye would that man should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the prophets.
Islam – No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.
