Many Faiths, One Truth


by Tenzin Gyatso

When I was a boy in Tibet, I felt that my own Buddhist religion must be the best — and that other faiths were somehow inferior.  Now I see how naïve I was, and how dangerous the extremes of religious intolerance can be today.

Hard to imagine a Western religious leader writing anything like this. That’s the problem.
