One of the most common terms we hear now – a – days is globalization. But thousands of years before this term became popular sages of India had conceived the idea of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – which means “the world is one family”. Science and technology have now converted what was once only a vision in the minds of sages into a concrete reality. Time and space are shrinking before our eyes, and the extraordinary photographs of the earth taken from the moon shows our planet as it really is…. a tiny spaceship hurtling through the endless vastness of space, so beautiful and yet so fragile. From that distance, our earth looks so peaceful, so tranquil………..and what is that which surrounds the earth? Holds it lovingly? It is ‘Akash’ – the sky.
Unfortunately, we human beings have divided our Mother Earth with boundaries and walls – but it is only the sky that has no demarcation line. The sky is a symbol of oneness, one world – suggesting the old Vedic Indian truth – Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.
