YOGIC SPIRITUALITY AND ISLAM
Mohammed According to Vivekananda

As the founder of one of the world's predominant religions, Mohammed is regarded by some following this ecumenical view as a Divine incarnation, great yogi, or Self-realized sage. Most people who make this judgment have not studied the life of Mohammed or understood the Islamic view of Mohammed, which does not view him in this light. 
  They merely assume it is the case because Islam is a widely believed religion or because various mystics, like the Sufis, have arisen in the course of its history. 

As a holy book or scripture, such people may regard the Koran as the World of God-like the Bible or the Gita or other so called scriptures-and may say that they believe in the Koran and consider that it has the same teaching as other scriptures. Again such people usually have not studies the Koran and may not really believe in or follow much of what it actually says.

Nor are they giving credence to traditional Islamic interpretations of the Koran.Who was Mohammed? Swami Vivekananda, who is often regarded as one of the main figures behind this new ecumenicalism, critiqued Mohammed from the standpoint of yogic spirituality. According to him Mohammed was a man who stumbled upon a spiritual experience without the proper training. To quote the Swami from his book on Raja Yoga:  "The Yogi says there is a great danger in stumbling upon this state.
