I'd like to know the Sanskrit shloka of Padma Purana Srsti-khanda 19.336. Here is the English translation; "Listen to the essence of dharma, and after listening, put it into practice: Do not perform acts towards others that you find displeasing to yourself.”

The English version cited, consists of the second half of verse 335 and first half of verse 336 of Chapter 19 of the Padma Purana Sṛṣṭi-khaṇḍa. The verses go as follows:

श्रूयतां धर्मसर्वस्वं श्रुत्वा चैतत्प्रधार्यताम् ॥- 19.335 second half
आत्मनः प्रतिकूलानि परेषां न समाचरेत्। - 19.336 first half

Listen to the all-in-all of righteousness; retain it after having heard it. (Second half of 19.335) Do not do to others what is unfavourable to yourself. (First half of 19.336)

    Dear Archit, thank you so much for giving me a merciful answer so quickly. It really helps me a lot. I'd like make sure that "19.336 first half part : आत्मनः प्रतिकूलानि परेषां न समाचरेत्।" relate to the meaning : "Do not do to others what is unfavourable to yourself" ? Nov 10 '20 at 8:43
