Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam - The Vedic Vision

The term "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" represents universal brotherhood as enunciated in the Vedic Statements:

"Sarvam Khalvidam Brahma”, {All this is verily the Supreme}

Isavasyamidam Sarvam”. {All this is clothed by the Supreme}

From another standpoint "Bhagavan is the great grand father of all". Therefore all belong to His family only. "Narayanad Pravartante, Narayane Praleyante" { Everything originates from the Supreme Narayana and finally merges in Him}

The so-called divisions in the Samsara( World) are due to Maya(illusion) .
Each one claims that his religion alone is the best.

We have to keep in view "Ekam Sad Vipra bahudha vadanti."

Isavasya Upanishad (vii)

Yasmin Sarvani Bhutani Atmaivabhut Vijanatah!
Tatra Ko Mohah Kah Sokah Ekatvamanupasyatah!!

" When one knows that all beings have become one in the Atman, What delusion is there and what grief is there for such a person who thus sees oneness everywhere".
