Harmony, Sadbhavana in Indian terms, occupies the most important place in man’s life. It is complementary to the supreme human value of Ahimsa and symbolic of friendliness in toto, and, therefore, it remains as the nucleus in the Vedic-Hindu philosophy and way of life. The great Mahamrityunjaya Mantra of the Rigveda urges man for harmony to develop inclusive and wide-ranging friendliness among fellow beings and thereby create an atmosphere of peace leading to prosperity.
Harmony is the ambrosia [Sanjivini] of life with co-operation, co-ordination and consent being its foremost features in the absence of which life cannot go on appropriately and smoothly and, therefore, there can be no success in life. It is for this reason that harmony, through the ages, has been considered vital to life, and continuous efforts have been made towards its realization and development in all walks of life.
Now, the earth is rapidly converting into a global village. Causes and concerns world over have become common and working together has become inevitable. In such a situation the significance of harmony multiplies many folds as peaceful and prosperous world mandates development of harmony. Therefore, it is the foremost duty of each and everyone that she or he works for the harmony at all levels and in all walks of life.
