On Karen Armstrong's Charter for Compassion-What about eastern philosophies and traditions?

This talk was about making religion universal, but it only focuses on combining the three main monotheistic religions of the western world. Although Karen Armstrong acknowledges the compassion teachings of Buddhism, she fails to mention its Hindu roots- Hinduism as an estimated 820 million adherents. How can we bring their beliefs into this world project of coming together?What about the many other religions across the globe? Where can they fit in?
