Monism is a type of philosophical and religious view. It is based on the doctrine or belief that all things are different forms of one ultimate reality or a fundamental stuff. Thus this belief states that all kinds of phenomenon have a single origin. Dualism and pluralism are theories that are different from monism. Monism is considered as a metaphysical theory as well as a theological belief.

It is based on a view that in essence everything in this universe springs out one universal substance or energy which is also known as God in religion and theology. This theory is practised in different forms and methods. It is expounded by all major religions like Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The entire philosophy of monism is explained by the statement "All is One, One is All" where "All" is God.
