Now, all things have gone up in value; Man alone has become cheap. Endowed with the costly gems of reason, discrimination and detachment, man has allowed them to slip away and he’s beset with dire poverty, as a consequence. He is slaughtered in millions without any qualm, because of the terrific growth of anger, hate and greed, because he has forgotten his unity with all men, all beings and all worlds. The contemplation of that unity alone can establish world peace, social peace and peace in the individual.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
