Dalai Lama - Value all religions

"It is very important to value all religious systems. Although they may have great philosophical differences, they all have precepts for cultivating a good attitude toward others and helping them. They all counsel the practice of love, compassion, patience, contentment, and observing society’s rules. Since all religions share these goals, it is important to respect them and to value the contribution they can make." - Dalai Lama

The knowledge of "Ekonkar" can only come from humility.  That is why my dear Guru Nanak says "Ekonkar Gurprasad." It is by bowing your head in humility that you can learn. And because everything is a creation of the same ONE, there should be no ego in bowing your head.  And bowing one's head is not a physical exercise.  You can bow your head with words. Thats what makes the words above from Dalai Lama golden.  True!  Value all!
