"Just as pain is not agreeable to you, it is so with others. Knowing this principle of equality treat other with respect and compassion."

Suman Suttam, verse 150



"Killing a living being is killing one's own self; showing compassion to a living being is showing compassion to oneself. He who desires his own good, should avoid causing any harm to a living being."

Suman Suttam, verse 151



"One should treat all beings as he himself would be treated."

Mahavira, Agamas Sutrakritanga 1.10.13
