"A superior being does not render evil for evil... One should never harm the wicked or the good or even criminals meriting death. A noble soul will ever exercise compassion even toward those who enjoy injuring others - for who is without fault?"


"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)

"The true rule of life is to guard and do by the things of others as they do by their own."
