understanding and respect of one another’s beliefs, cultures and traditions.

THE GOLDEN RULES

Baha’i
If your eyes be turned towards justice choose for your neighbour that which you would choose for yourself.

Buddhism
Treat all creatures as you would like to be treated.

Christianity
Whatever you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.

Hinduism
This is the essence of morality: Do not do to others which if done to you would cause you pain.

Islam
No one of you is a believer until you desire for your neighbour that which you desire for yourself.

Judaism
What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbour – that is the basic law, all the rest is commentary.

Sikhism
Do as you desire goodness for yourself as you cannot expect tasty fruits if you sow thorny trees.

 

COMMON STATEMENT OF THE FAITH COMMUNITIES

WE bring greetings from the faith communities to the Community leaders and all people of the
City of Manningham.

WE offer to the City of Manningham our common commitment to seek to live together in peace and goodwill.

WE further affirm this same commitment to the promotion and advancement of mutual respect and understanding of one another’s beliefs, cultures and traditions.

THIS desire arises not only from our common humanity but also from our being people of faith and people of prayer.

WE recognise that as neighbours, we have responsibilities to the community, the world and ourselves. We therefore urge all citizens, both religious and non-religious, to put aside intolerances, biases, prejudices and divisiveness, to attain peaceful and fruitful co-existence in our City.
