World Faiths: The Golden Rule

 

None of you truly believes
until he wishes to his
brother what he
wishes for himself
~ISLAM~


Love thy neighbor
as thyself
~JUDAISM~


Do not to others
what ye do not wish
done to yourself,
and wish for others too
what ye desire and long for
for yourself
~HINDUISM~


...choose thou
for thy neighbor
that which thou
choosest for thyself
~BAHA'I FAITH~


Make thine own self
the measure of the others
and so abstain from
causing hurt to them
~BUDDHISM~


All things whatsoever ye
would that men should do to you,
do ye so to them;
for this is the law & the prophets.
~CHRISTIANITY~


Do not do to others what
you would not like yourself.
Then there will be no resentment
against you, either in
the family or in the state.
~CONFUCIANISM~


Regard your neighbor’s
gain as your gain,
and your neighbor’s loss
as your own loss.
~TAOIS~


That nature alone is good which
refrains from doing another
whatsoever is not good for itself
~ZOROASTRIANISM~


One going to take a pointed stick
to pinch a baby bird
should first try it on himself
to feel how it hurts.
~AFRICAN TRADITIONAL RELIGIONS~


As thou deemest thyself,
so deem others
~SIKH~


As students go back to school,
may we show them.....kindness
by living The Golden Rule!
