If you meet the buddha kill him?

"No meaning that comes from outside of ourselves is real. The Buddhahood of each of us has already been obtained. We need only recognize it. Thus the Zen Master warns his disciple: If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him!"

As someone raised in a monotheistic religion practicing a Chinese martial art, the question that instantly follows for me is...

is that the same as smashing the idol?
