Classical pantheism

Classical pantheism equates existence with God without attempting to redefine or to minimize either term, and has an inclusive demeanor towards other world faiths. It is a classical concept that is represented by many religious traditions including Hinduism and by Kabbalistic Judaism, amongst many other world religions and philosophies.

Due to some of the changes in usage of the word pantheism today, classical pantheism is distinct primarilly because of its simplicity, and compatibility with other religious traditions. In many ways, Classical Pantheism is similar to monism, in that it views all things, from energy to matter to thought or time as being aspects of an all embracing personal God.
