The Blessed Buddha was a great friend of tolerance & harmlessness:
I am a friend
of the footless, I am a friend of the bipeds; I am a friend of those with four feet, I am a friend of the many-footed. May not the footless harm me, may not the bipeds harm me, may not those with four feet harm me, and may not those with many feet harm me. A. II, 72
Among tigers, lions, leopards & bears I lived in the wood.
No one was frightened of me, nor did I fear anyone. Uplifted by such universal friendliness I enjoyed the forest. Finding great solace in sweet silent solitude.

day and night takes delight in harmlessness sharing love with all that live, finds enmity with none.
SN I 208

all sentient, living and breathing beings.
any one with a
mind of true affection feel compassion for this entire world, above, below and across, unlimited
