The Golden Rule

I discovered this nice graphic illustrating the unity of all faiths. In the simple words of the many versions of the Golden Rule, we can see how there is a common thread woven across all the religions, in their original, uncorrupted way of the truth.

If more people could embrace the fundamental unity of faiths, rather than argue over theological differences, the world would be such a better place. But many people do not seem to realize that the actual practice of religion is not as important as how we lead our lives. In fact, the true test of our religious practice is whether we lead our lives in agreement with our beliefs in love, compassion and forgiveness - the principle of loving kindness. When we extend this philosophy to nations, the ultimate judgment of nations is based on whether we feed the poor, clothe the naked and comfort the sick.
