Jewish, ” It has been told you, O Man, what is good And what the Eternal One demands of you; only to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk Humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8.

Christian, ” You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the greatest commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself’. On these two commandments hang all the laws and the prophets.” Matthew 22: 37-40.

Sikh, ” The (One) supreme, unique Lord owner, from his bright energy, has created all human beings who belong only to Him. When All and everything is created by the same bright energy and light (noor), then how can Some of them be high or low, or good or evil.” ‘ Sri Guru Granth Sahib’

Hindu, ” May all be happy; May all be free from infirmities; May all see good; May none partake suffering.” Mangalore Mantra, Garuda Purana (35.51).

Muslim, “.. .To every one of you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If G_D has so willed, He would have made you a single community. But (His plan is ) to test you in what he has given you. So, strive as in a race to excel One another in goodness and virtues. Unto G_d you must all return; and then He will show you the truth of the matters in which you differed.” Al-Qur’an -Surah al-Maa’idah 5:48.
