Swami Vivekananda in his epoch making speech in the World Parliament Of Religions at Chicago on September 11, 1893 made the idea of ‘One India: One World’ very clear as he addressed the audience as “sisters and brothers of America and then said, “I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth.” He said, “The end and aim of all science is to find the unity, the One out of which the manifold is being manufactured, that One existing as many” — Ekam Sat Viprabahudha Vedanti — That which exists is one and sages call by different names.Swami Vivekananda emphasised that each nation has a destiny to fulfil, a message to deliver, a note to play in the march of nations and when it does that, it serves self and the entire world. For India, the theme has been spirituality, oneness of all existence and pursuing of that divine destiny, cherishing at the same time, all diversity….Spiritual swaySri Aurobindo emphasised: “…why should not India then be the first power in the world? Who else has the undisputed right to extend spiritual sway over the world? This was Swami Vivekananda’s vision.India can once more be made aware of her greatness with her unique expertise in spirituality. He took forward the message of ‘One India: One world’ and gave it a firm footing. He said, “I say that it is Sanatan Dharma which for us is nationalism.”“India is the guru of nations, physician of the human soul in its profounder maladies; she is destined once more to mould the life of the world and restore peace to the human spirit,” said Sri Aurobindo who declared, “The sun of India’s destiny would rise and fill all India with its light and overflow to Asia and the world.” His message on 15th August and the five dreams he told about give further insight in the grand vision he unfolded for us as he said that India has untold potentialities and therefore has a great part to play in determining the political, social, cultural and spiritual future of humanity.World unitySri Aurobindo gave us the way to achieve world unity: “A spiritual religion of humanity is the hope of the future. By this is not meant what is ordinarily called a universal religion, a system, a thing of creed and intellectual belief and dogma and outward rite. It means the growing realisation that there is a secret Spirit, a divine reality, in which we are all one, that humanity is the means by which it will progressively reveal itself here. It implies a growing attempt to live out this knowledge and bring about a kingdom of this divine Spirit upon earth.”Sri Aurobindo thus advocated “A spiritual oneness which would create a psychological oneness independent of any intellectual or outward uniformity and compel a oneness not bound up with its mechanical means of unification, but ready always, to enrich its secure unity by a free inner variation and a freely varied outer self-expression. This would be the basis for a higher type of human existence.”by:- Narendra Joshi
