I maintain that every major religion of the world - Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Sikhism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism - has similar ideals of love, the same goal of benefiting humanity through spiritual practice, and the same effect of making their followers into better human beings.
The great teachers wanted to lead their followers away from the paths of negative deeds caused by ignorance and to introduce them to paths of goodness.

I read that quote in HHDL's book How To See Yourself As You Really Are, and it was a significant factor in my taking refuge in the Triple Gem.

your intention does not fit the reality.
If diversity and harmony in a religious context is intended all religions must be considered not just large world relgiions. Diversity implies such. So the content conflicts with the subject matter.
Perhaps a more appropriate title would be.....large world religions or HHDL's statements on large world religions, pr some such. Or as I mention perhaps this put in a school specific site.
