"Just as pain is not agreeable to you, it is so with others. Knowing this principle of equality treat other with respect and compassion."
"Killing a living being is killing one's own self; showing compassion to a living being is showing compassion to oneself. He who desires his own good, should avoid causing any harm to a living being."
"All the living beings wish to live and not to die; that is why unattached saints prohibit the killing of living beings."
