The aim of all religions and philosophies is the understanding and the realization of unity. The Vedanta philosophy teaches advaita: There is no such thing as "two"; the whole is one and the same being. In the Bible it is said, "I and my Father are one", which means unity, and then, "Be ye perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect", which shows that in this unity lies perfection, amplitude. When we come to the Hadith we read, "By knowing himself man can know God", which means that by realizing himself he realizes God.
