Jainism


"Have benevolence towards all living beings, joy at the sight of the virtuous, compassion and sympathy for the afflicted, and tolerance towards the indolent and ill-behaved."

Tattvarthasutra 7:11



"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



"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
