Gurudev, yesterday you spoke about Indira Gandhi who was trying to bring together the Buddhist nations in India because India is the birthplace of Lord Buddha. Is it still possible today and who can do that?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

I think all the countries in the world should come together. That is what we are doing in the Art of Living. We are bringing everyone together as a One World Family, which is why it is said, ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (everyone belongs to one Family and one God).

The air knows no boundaries, the sun knows no boundaries. In reality there is no boundary on Earth. They are all man-made divisions between different people. We should all dream of the whole world coming together in the spirit of spirituality as one Human-kind.

The United Nations organization was founded with this idea, but unfortunately due to the lack of the spiritual quotient there, it did not find success.
