The purpose of the ancient religions of India is to paint the seeds of love in the human heart, so that they may sprout into saplings of endurance, and blossom into tolerance, yielding ultimately the fruit of peace. The pinnacle of Indian thought is non-duality, experience of the One, negation of duality. Some countries proceed towards the ideal of individual freedom, others aim at state sovereignty and the suppression of the individual's right to freedom. But Bharat has, from time immemorial, sought to infuse in the individual the conviction that he can be free only when he realises his identity with all... not only with the inhabitants of his own State, or people who use his language or are of his own colour and creed. Expansion is the key to happiness, and love is the unfailing key to expansion. Man is a kin to all; that is the teaching of 'Sanathana Dharma'... the rules of the Ancient Wisdom.
