If hurting others would bring princely riches,
The pure in heart would still refuse.
It is the principle of the pure in heart never to injure others,
Even when they themselves have been hatefully injured.
Hating others, even enemies who harmed you unprovoked,
Assures incessant sorrow.
If you return kindness for injuries received and forget both,
Those who harmed you will be punished by their own shame.
What good is a man's knowledge unless it prompts him to
Prevent the pain of others as if it were his own pain?
Any actions which a man knows would harm himself
He should not inflict on others.
The supreme principle is this: Never knowingly
Harm anyone at any time in any way
Why does he who knows what injury to his own life is like
Inflict injury on other living human beings?
If a man inflicts sorrow on another in the morning,
Sorrow will come to him unbidden in the afternoon.
All suffering recoils on the wrongdoer himself. Therefore, those who
Desire not to suffer refrain from causing others pain.
