*‘The Golden Rule is the principle of treating others as one would want to be treated by them. It is sometimes called an ethics of reciprocity, meaning that you should reciprocate to others how you would like them to treat you (not necessarily how they actually treat you)’.

Various expressions of this rule can be found in the tenets of most beliefs and cultures.   This poster covers major faiths including: Baha’i / Buddhism / Christianity / Confucianism / First Nations / Hinduism / Islam / Jainism / Judaism / Shintoism / Sikhism / Taoism / Unitarianism / Zoroastrianism
