The Golden Rule

HINDU:This is the sum of duty; do naught unto others which if done to thee would cause thee pain.
ZOROASTRIAN:That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not good for itself.
TAOIST:Regard your neighbour's gain as your own gain, and your neighbour's loss as your own loss.
BUDDHIST:Hurt not others in ways that you would find hurtful.
CONFUCIAN:Do not unto others what you would not have them do unto you.
JAIN:In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self.
JEWISH:Whatever thou hatest thyself, that do not to another.
CHRISTIAN:All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.
ISLAMIC:No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.
SIKH:As thou deemest thyself, so deem others.
