"Every being fears punishment; every being fears death, just as you do. Therefore do not kill or cause to kill."

Dhammapada Ch. 10



"Let him be cordial in all his ways and refined in conduct; filled thereby with joy, he will make an end of ill."

Dhammapada 368, 376



"The bodhisattva should adopt the same attitude towards all beings, his mind should be even towards all beings, he should not handle others with an uneven mind, but with a mind which is friendly, well-disposed, helpful, free from aversions avoiding harm and hurts, he should handle others as if they were his mother, father, son, or daughter. As a savior of all beings should a bodhisattva behave towards all beings. So should he train him- self if he wants to know full enlightenment."
