    [I'm echoing a friend's post of this here as many of you in this forum might like to get this.]

    This might be of interest to many of you:

    Free Downloadable Online Library of the World's Religious Scriptures,
    with searchable concordance.

    http://www.bahai-education.org/ocean/

    here is what it says on the home page...


    Ocean is a free collection of the World's Religious literature managed by a unique book-centered research engine. It contains over 1000 books of 10 world religions in English as well as collections in six other languages (French, Spanish, German, Russian, Dutch, and Portuguese). If you have a slow internet connection, don't despair. We will happily mail you a CD at cost anywhere on the planet!
    Our purpose in giving away Ocean is to promote amity among religions through greater understanding. It is our belief that the actual teachings of the various religions are not so different as some people would have us believe. True, religions have been used by power-hungry leaders as a tool to divide people. But eventually people will get tired of formulaes of hate and begin to ask "what do the scriptures really say?" What they will find is shocking: the core message of all the world's religious writings is the same: ethical integrity, honesty, sincerity, compassion, tolerance and non-violence. No kidding! It's hard to accept this in a world filled with "religious" bigotry and hatred -- but just look for yourself!

    Enjoy! :)
