If the Divine source is one then how we as individuals are different? If the whole ocean is one then how a drop of the ocean is different from the ocean? If the drop is different from the ocean how then it can ultimately be dissolved in the ocean?

It is a Sanskrit phrase meaning that the whole earth is one family. The first word is made up of three Sanskrit words – Vasudha, Eva and Kutumbakam. Vasudha means the earth, Eva means emphasizing and Kutumbakam means a family. The concept of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam originates from Hitopadesha. Hitopadesha is a collection of Sanskrit fables in prose and verse. According to the author of Hitopadesha, the main purpose of creating the Hitopadesha is to instruct young minds the philosophy of life in an easy way so that they are able to grow into responsible human beings..

Diversity of culture and tradition is our pride. A garden with diverse flowers with diverse fragrances, colours and adoration looks beautiful and gives divinity to the garden.

Oneness in diversity is exhibited in nature with the appearance of a rainbow, which is an aggregation of diverse synchronous colours in the ethereal sky. When colours are separate they disperse and are not visible. By the magical prismatic effect of sun and rain clouds, the concerted reflection forms sublime rainbow signifying harmony and equanimity.

Same way, our culture is a beautiful amalgamation of diverse languages, diverse traditions and diverse existence.

Respecting and celebrating cultures is the beauty of diversity. This is what is respecting humanity and being human.

Universal love and brotherhood makes us understand the pains and pleasures of others and to be aware of it and to share the concerns.

Let’s open our hearts, open our arms to embrace and heal.

Inculcate universal love and peace for the universal family.

All-Pervading Consciousness in the whole Humanity is the Universal Consciousness present in each one of us…We all emanate from one supreme source to merge back to the same source.
