We are the birds of the same nest,
We may wear different skins,
We may speak different languages,
We may believe in different religions,
We may belong to different cultures, yet we share the same home,
FOR A MAN CAN LIVE INDIVIDUALLY,
BUT CAN SURVIVE ONLY COLLECTIVELY
वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् सनातन धर्म का मूल संस्कार तथा विचारधारा है जो महा उपनिषद सहित कई ग्रन्थों में लिपिबद्ध है। इसका अर्थ है- धरती ही परिवार है (वसुधा एव कुटुम्बकम्)। यह वाक्य भारतीय संसद के प्रवेश कक्ष में भी अंकित है।
अयं बन्धुरयं नेतिगणना लघुचेतसाम्।
उदारचरितानां तु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् ॥ उदारचरितानांतु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम्। ।
अर्थ - यह अपना बन्धु है और यह अपना बन्धु नहीं है, इस तरह की गणना छोटे चित्त वाले लोग करते हैं। उदार हृदय वाले लोगों की तो (सम्पूर्ण) धरती ही परिवार है।
