Interfaith Event: ‘Women with Wisdom: Others Before Self’ – Sydney, Australia



Interfaith Reflections on Peace: Karen Armstrong


Look into your own heart, discover what it is that gives you pain and then refuse, under any circumstance whatsoever, to inflict that pain on anybody else. If wedon’t manage to implement the Golden Rule globally so that we treat all peoples, wherever and whoever they may be, as though they were as important as ourselves, I doubt that we’ll have a viable world to  hand on to the next generation.”

Karen Armstrong, July 2009
