As people become more generous and broadminded, they rise above the feelings of casteism, tribalism, provincialism and nationalism, which evokes narrowness, violence, hatred and meanness. Those who enter the field of social welfare with feelings of “mine” and “yours” actually create divisions in human society. Those who wish to foster the welfare of living beings as a whole have to embrace universalism as the only alternative. If we look upon everything as our own, the question of “mine” and “yours” will dissovle; in universalism there is no opportunity for violence, hatred or narrowness.

Spirituality provides humanity with that subtle and tremendous power with which no other power can be compared. Therefore, with spirituality as the base, a rational philosophy should be evolved to deal with the physical, psychological and socio-philosophical problems of the day

In our present environment there are many divisive tendencies splitting humanity into mutally belligerent groups. Spirituality must foster a natural affinity among people, to unite all humanity. The approach to spirituality should be psychological. Through rational analysis, humanity should appreciate its relationship with God and recognize the most benevolent kindness of that most beloved Entity. Spirituality should lead human beings to that one Cosmic Truth from Whom they have derived their souls and who is their ultimate destiny. That ultimate and abolute ideal is the Cosmic Ideal  – an ideal beyond the scope of time, place and person. It is the Absolute, without and beyond relativity. It stands with Its own radiance for all time and for every entity of the cosmos, whether human beings or less evolved soul. The Cosmic Ideal alone can be the unifying force which will strengthen humanity to smash its bondages and abolish the narrow domestic walls fo divisive tendencies.

Today you have to create the Great Universe, and the guiding principle behind it will be that all humans are progeny of the Supreme Progenitor, God. Thus all are His children, all should live together – all will have to live together. Black or white, literate or illiterate, small or tall, all are the children of the same Father and all will have to live together. There will be unity in the physical realm and also in the psychic and spiritual realms.
But to strengthen this unity still further, there should be a common goal for all the children of the Supreme Father – the merger of all in Him. All have to come from Him, and therefore all will remain together. But this is not sufficient. All have come from Him, are in Him, and will merge in Him, therefore all people will have to live together. For you, unity is the natural course, and division is unnatural. You well know that the Cosmic Energy will not long tolerate what is unnatural.

So it is natural for human beings to live togethere and to make a Great Universe. By not doing so, by mutural fight, all will be destroyed. This is the law of the universe(Prakriti). Thus you will have to remain united; you must create the Great Universe as soon as possible. There will be peace and happiness in the universe, and with one indivisible ideology, humanity will march ahead. Victory be with you!
