Comparative Religion and Religious Harmony


Authors
Abstract
In the world today, human beings are confronted with a number of problems due ultimately to the apparent conflicts among the different religions (religious faiths). Religious attitudes, ideas, and practices differ and even seem to be incompatible with one another. I argue, however, that these faiths do not contradict. To see this, we need to engage in the comparative study of religion. This will show that the ultimate aim of all the world's religions is to establish unity among people, and will thereby provide a basis for tolerance and understanding on the part of the followers of every religion towards other religions
