Deus non alligatur. God is not bound. Nibbanam paramam sukham. Unbinding is the Highest Happiness. The Heart is Divinity. God is the primal radiance of Divinity. Nature is the primal manifestation of Divinity. The Buddha is the primal realization of Divinity. La ilaha il Allah. Allah is Complete Wholeness.

The Golden Rule

Sutrakritanga: Book I: Lecture 11: 33:

Indifferent to worldly objects, a man should wander about treating all creatures in the world so as he himself would be treated.

(Also found in: Jaina Sutras. Translated from Prakrit by Hermann Jacobi. 2 Volumes. New York: Dover Publications, Inc., 1968. Vol. 2: 314.)

The Golden Rule of Christianity ("Do unto others as you would have them do unto you") expresses the basic idea also found in the Jain-Hindu-Buddhist concept of "ahimsa", or "non-harming".
