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.
