In the monistic all-is-one philosophies of the East, there are no real I -You relationships, no distinctions between the compassionate and the pitied, between good and evil. All differences are illusory (maya). And why think this impersonal “God” is responsible for creating and sustaining the world we experience? It can’t create anything that’s not-God or act on anything since there’s nothing to act on. Even if Eastern religions stress duties or societal roles rather than rights, their emphasis on not harming others but respecting them still takes human worth and dignity for granted—an assumption that an impersonal metaphysic can’t easily accommodate.
