The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule exists in spiritual traditions that span the globe. Is it not time to put it into action so that we might all live together in peace?


Buddhism:  Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.

Judaism: What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow man.  That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.

Christianity: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Islam: No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.

Bahai’i Faith: Blessed is he who preferreth his brother before himself.

  1. It’s interesting that so many religions have held to what Jesus called the greatest commandment with loving God. Thanks for the post.

    I love the unity of that! We should just have one universal religion based on love and respect for all.
