Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam:Relevance of India’s Ancient Thinking to Contemporary Strategic Reality - Conference Proceedings

The adoption of 21st June as International Day of Yoga by the United Nations General Assembly in 2014, in response to an India-led resolution with a record high number of co-sponsors, was a landmark event. Taking the cue from the Honorable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, it was felt that it is important to mobilise our ancient ideas and use them practically and strategically to build an Indian narrative. Prime Minister Modi has highlighted ancient Indian aphorisms such as ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’, ‘Sarvajan Hitaya, Sarvajan Sukhaya’ and others on different forums. In his speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in early 2018, he pointed out how gems of Indian wisdom such as ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ with its underlying philosophy of oneness continues to be relevant and effective in alleviating global conflicts in the present age.
