“Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”, possibly one of the most famous lines emerging from Sanskrit literature. This phrase is another demonstration of the all-inclusive attitude that our Indian tradition has. Unity in diversity is something that we have been practicing for thousands of years, the underlying belief says the same, we have emerged from one, the Brahman, the ultimate reality.
Originally from Maha Upanishad, the “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” phrase is part of this Shlok.
Source: Maha Upanishad 6.71–75
अयं निजः परो वेति गणना लघुचेतसाम्।
उदारचरितानां तु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम्॥
ayaṃ nijaḥ paro veti gaṇanā laghucetasām।
udāracaritānāṃ tu vasudhaiva kuṭumbakam॥
यह मेरा है, वह पराया है, ऐसे छोटें विचार के व्यक्ति करते हैं।
उच्च चरित्र वाले लोग समस्त संसार को ही परिवार मानते हैं॥
This is mine, that is his, say the small minded,
The wise believe that the entire world is a family.
