“‘As I am, so are these. As are these, so am I.’ Drawing the parallel to yourself, neither kill nor get others to kill.” The Buddha

As I am, so are these

This is a genuine quote from the Buddhist scriptures, said to have been uttered by the Buddha himself:

‘As I am, so are these.
As are these, so am I.’
Drawing the parallel to yourself,
neither kill nor get others to kill.

It’s from a text called the Nalaka Sutta, which is found in the Sutta Nipata)

“All tremble at violence; all fear death. Putting oneself in the place of another, one should not kill nor cause another to kill.” The Buddha

all fear death

All tremble at violence; all fear death.
Putting oneself in the place of another,
one should not kill nor cause another to kill.

This is a genuine Buddha quote. It’s from the Dhammapada, verse 129.
