“Harmony among the major faiths has become an essential ingredient of peaceful coexistence in our world. From this perspective, mutual understanding among these traditions is not merely the business of religious believers – it matters for the welfare of humanity as a whole.” (Source: The Dalai Lama,In “The Faith Divide” by Eboo Patel, The Washington Post, February 7, 2009)
