Atithi Devo Bhava
Atithi Devo Bhava – which means that a guest is akin to God, is one of India’s most ancient maxims. It is a beautiful example of a text asking us to respect our guests as God. The host - guest relationship in India is truly one of the most revered relationships.
The unique practice of giving utmost importance and preferential treatment to the guests clearly explains the fact that why India’s history has several notable examples of ‘Atithi Satkar’ meaning to welcome the guest with warmth and respect.
A Sanskrit phrase is a combination of three Sanskrit words Vasudha, Eva and Kutumbakam. Vasudha means the earth, Eva means emphasizing and Kutumbakam means a family. It is a philosophy that inculcates an understanding that the whole world is one family that tries to foster an understanding that the whole of humanity is one family. It emanates from a spiritual understanding that the whole of humanity is made of one life energy. The world is a beautiful amalgamation of diverse languages, traditions and existence.
Respecting and celebrating cultures is the beauty of diversity which in turn is respecting the nature, humanity and being human. Universal love and brotherhood makes us understand the pains and pleasures of others and to be aware of it and to share the concerns. All Pervading Consciousness in the whole Humanity is the Universal Consciousness present in each one of us. We all emanate from one supreme source to merge back to the same source.
"Be Universal in your Love. You will see the Universe as picture of your own Being."
“Lokaa Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu”
A beautiful Sanskrit phrase that stands for the Happiness, Peace and Well being of all inhabitants of this Planet.
