VEDIC DHARMA AND THE UNIVERSAL RELIGION
In this we see a similar formulation to Christianity of a dominant personality that everyone is expected to believe in and the corresponding effort to convert or conquer the world for a particular belief that casts a shadow on, if not denigrates, all other views.

Islam has a final prophet to whom all humanity must look for intercession and shows a similar personal bias as Christianity. No prophet or incarnation, however great, can be for everyone.

Ultimately we must all realize the truth for ourselves beyond intermediaries. Truth belongs to all creatures and any creature that strives for it in the right way can attain it. The Divine is not so limited that it requires a single messenger, nor are creatures so much the same that they can all relate to the same figure. No single messenger in any field, whether art, science or literature, can speak for everyone or be understandable to all. The insistence upon a single messenger denies universality. Islam, like Christianity, easily becomes a personality cult and remains fixated on a particular human being, who cannot be without imperfections.

That Mohammed may have been a great man in certain respects is not the issue, but as the ultimate prophet any human being is bound to fall short. If we look deeply there is much in Christianity and Islam that is not true or universal. Both are personal religions centered on a particular human personality. Both are historical religions rooted in an historical revelation that arguably is out of date. Both religions do not contain or understand many of the basic concepts and practices of the universal religion.****
