Philosophy East and West 28 (4):401-411 (1978)
I try to outline parallels and differences between eastern and western thought about the supreme reality, And to answer the question: to what extent is theism found in both traditions? western classical theism is found significantly similar to advaita vedantism and even to mahayana buddhism. None of these is theistic in the full sense of identifying the God of worship with the supremely real.

Western classical pantheism is also considered--As another non-Genuine form of theism. Hua yen buddhism is similar
