From: “Humanism as the next Step” by Lloyd & Mary Morain, a list of the spirit of Justice in ancient religions:

Buddhism: “Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.” Udana-Varga 5, 18
Brahmanism: “This is the sum of duty: Do naught unto others which would cause you pain if done to you.”
Mahabharata, 5, 1517
Confucianism: “Is there one maxim…to be acted upon throughout one’s life. Do not unto others what you would not have them do unto you.” Analects 15, 23
Islam: “No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.” Sunnah
Judaism: “What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow man.” Talmud, Shabbat 31d
Jainism: “The essence of right conduct is not to injure anyone” Jainism Sacred Scriptures
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.” Bible, Matthew 7, 12

Why then is the wisdom above so egregiously ignored ever since humanization? Power, greed, cruelty, hubris? “What fools we mortals be.” William S. (sent by a fool named Josh)
Friends, 10 attendees were at the February brunch. Sorry Barb & I could not make it. She’s feeling much better now.
