How do you know that the religion you are devoting yourself to is right? If your religion is so right, why doesn't everyone know it?

Just because a religion is right for one person, doesn't mean that it's right for everyone.  That's why I don't believe there is one "right" religion--every religion is equally as valid.  I read a book by the Dalai Lama once called something about Happiness and I was interested to read that he said that people should basically just stick to the religion they were brought up in and that everyone could be a good person no matter what religion they had or even if they didn't practice religion--I thought that was unusual for a religious leader--it seems that everyone wants to convert people to their religion as being the only right one.
