Does the Baha'i Faith recognize all Religions or just the major world religions and are they just God Based Religions? From what i know Buddhism is not generally considered a Monolithic Religion and they don't seem to acknowledge a God.

Baha'i Faith recognizes all the divine origin religions, including Buddhism. Though, original (Authentic) writings of Buddha is not available, therefore if some Buddhist believe that Buddhism is not from God, in Baha'i view that's because, during ages these original teachings has been changed or lost, otherwise Buddha was a Manifestation of God and Baha'u'llah is the fifth Buddha.

Bahá'í Faith and Buddhism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A few years ago I posted this:
There are two Baha'i writers I feel have been most influential to me in the area of Baha'i - Buddhist comparisons ..
(1) One Moojan Momen is largely online at:
Buddhism and the Baha'i Faith
His book I believe on Buddhism and the Baha'i Faith is also in print.
(2) The other was Jamshed Fozdar in his "Buddha Maitreya Amitabha has appeared"

Off the top of my head
Buddhism is very old as is Hinduism. In Tibet the older religion of the people was combined with Buddhism. Baha'is recognize Buddha as a Manifestation of God in His day, as well as Krishna. We may never know what the original Messages were. All of these Messages were true, however the differences between them was that God only revealed what was necessary for that period of time and that people in those milieus, genres, or contexts. That is the difference in all the world religions, the Revelation was for that time, that place.
