Swami Sivananda : ESSENCE OF RELIGIONS: While conversing with some of his disciples, the Master drew an analogy between the various limbs of the body and the different religious beliefs and cults prevalent in the world.

He said, "Just as one identifies oneself with the different limbs of the body and feels that he includes the legs, hands, stomach, etc., so also he should feel that all the different religious cults such as Vaishnavism, Shaivism, Advaita, Dvaita, Vishisht Advaita, and the various religions, such as Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, etc., are like the different limbs of the body of religion. For religion in essence is only one--the religion of truth and love. We should embrace all religions as our own, even as we feel that all the limbs of our body are our own. This is the philosophy of the body. There should be no fights and quarrels among religious sects."

Rabbi Hillel was asked to provide the essence of the Torah and he said "That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary."

Likewise... I want to collect the essence from other religions... Do you have any ? do send it !

From Stephen Palmer

"Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favour and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight..."

--Proverbs 3:3-6

" ...'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments. "

--Matthew 22:34-40

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."

--Galations 5:22
