Dear friends

My views are:

The very kernal of ethics...THE LAW of COMPASSION.

 Baha'i: "Desire not for anyone the things that ye would not desire for yourselves." Baha Ulla LXVI

Buddhism "Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful." Udana-Varga 5:18

Christianity: "Do for others what you want them to do for you." Matthew 7:12

Confucianism: "Do not unto others what you would not have them do unto you." Analects 15:23 (551 B. C.)

Hinduism: "Never do to others what would pain thyself." Panchatantra 111.104

Islam: "Do unto all people as you would they should do unto you, and reject for others what you would reject for yourself." Mishkat-el-Masabih

Jainism: "In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self." Lord Mahavira, 6th Century BC

Judaism: "What is hateful to you do not to your neighbour. That is the entire law" Talmud, Shabbat.

Sikhism: "Treat others as thou would be treated thyself."

Taoism: "Regard your neighbour's gain as your own gain and your neighbours loss as your own loss." T'ai Shang Kan Ying P'ien

Zoroanastrianism: "That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another what so ever is not good for itself." Dadistan-I-Dinik, 94:5

  "Compassion is no attribute. It is the LAW of LAWS."

  "Now bend thy head and listen well, O Bodhisattva -- Compassion speaks and saith: "Can there be bliss when all that lives must suffer? Shalt thou be saved and hear the whole world cry?" 

  Madame H P Blavatsky; The Voice of the Silence
