THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE
The Western monotheistic concept of God is not the same as the Brahman or the Impersonal Absolute of Hindu though or the Atman or Supreme Self. It is akin to the Hindu concept of Ishvara or the Cosmic Lord but not identical to it. While Hindus may accept God as a term for the Supreme Reality (which they may not define in a Western monotheistic sense), it is very rare that followers of Western will use such terms as Atman, Brahman or Ishvara as equivalent to God or Allah (which they would regard as heretical).

Moreover, several religions do not recognize God or a cosmic creator at all. This includes Buddhism which has always criticized Hinduism for postulating the existence of such an entity. Buddhism recognizes a Spiritual Reality or One Mind, but this is quite removed from the Biblical or Koranic God who creates the world out of nothing, as in the case of one Buddhist thinker recently who called the Biblical God "a primitive idea".
