THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE
This hardly seems accurate and in fact appears ridiculous. Similarly one cannot honestly call a Hindu temple merely a mosque in another form, or the Koran the Upanishads or the Buddhist Sutras in a different language? Nor can one honestly say that Mohammed is merely the Buddha in another garb, or Krishna as he appeared relative to the needs of medieval Arabia. Yet this is what we are telling people when we say that there is no difference between these various religious teachers, books or places of worship.

One can certainly honor and respect many great human beings but this does not require that we equate them with the highest sages. One can honor Mohammed as a mystic, social reformer and political leader but to thereby put him on the same level with great yogic sages like Buddha or Shankaracharya may not be appropriate.
