Hinduism


"Do not to others what ye do not wish done to yourself; and wish for others too, what ye desire and long for, for yourself. This is the whole of Dharma, heed it well."

Bhagavad Gita, 2:65



"Wound not others, do no one injury by thought or deed, utter no word to pain thy fellow creatures."

The Ordinances of Manu



"One should never do that to another which one regards as injurious to one's own self. This, in brief, is the rule of dharma. Other behavior is due to selfish desires."

Mahabharata, Anusasana Parva 18:113:8 (~300 BC)
