The Golden Rule can be found in the seven basic religions on our planet...
BRAHMANISM: This is the sum of duty: do naught unto others which would cause you pain if done to you. (Mahabharata 5:1517)
BUDDHISM: Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful. (Udana-Varga 5:18)
CONFUCIANISM: Surely it is the maxim of loving kindness: Do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you. (Analects 15:23)
TAOISM: Regard your neighbor's gain as your own gain and your neighbor's loss as your own loss. (T'ai Shang Kan Ying P'ien)
ZOROASTRIANISM: That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not good for itself. (Dadistan-l-dinik 94:5)
JUDAISM; What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowman. That is the entire law; all the rest is commentary. (Talmud, Shabbat 31a)
CHRISTIANITY; All things whatsoever ye would that man should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the Law and the prophets. (Matthew 7:12)
ISLAM: No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself
