A Reflection on Unity from the Rig Veda

Let us be united,

Let us speak in harmony,

Let our minds apprehend alike.

Common be our prayer,

Common be the end of our assembly,

Common be our resolution,

Common be our deliberations.

Alike be our feelings,

Unified be our hearts,

Common be our intentions,

Perfect be our unity.

                                              From the Rig Veda.
