The Golden Rule

From a publication of The Center for Progressive Christianity:

In everything, do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets. Jesus, Matthew 7:12

What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. This is the whole Torah; all the rest is commentary. Go and learn it. Hillel, Talmud, Shabbath 31a

Not one of you truly believes until you wish for others what you wish for yourself.  The Prophet Muhammad, Hadith

This is the sum of duty: do not do to others what would cause pain if done to you. Mahabharata 5:1517

One word which sums up the basis of all good conduct… loving-kindness. Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself.  Confucius, Analects 15.23

Treat not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.  The Buddha, Udana-Varga 5.18

Lay not on any soul a load that you would not wish to be laid upon you, and desire not for anyone the things you would not desire for yourself.  Baha’u’llah, Gleanings

One should treat all creatures in the world as one would like to be treated.  Mahavira, Sutrakritanga 1.11.33

I am a stranger to no one; and no one is a stranger to me. Indeed, I am a friend to all.  Guru Granth Sahib, p. 1299

Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain and your neighbor’s loss as your own loss. Lao Tzu, T’ai Shang Kan Ying P’ien 213-218

We affirm and promote respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Unitarian Principle

Do not do unto others whatever is injurious to yourself. Shayast-na-Shayast 13.2
