Unity in Diversity: A spiritual perspective to real world problems - A discourse by Radhanath Swami

The world is a giant community now, we can find common ground only by moving to a higher ground.By uplifting our consciousness to spiritual dimension, one will realize his or her spiritual identity and that all temporary material differences are superficialities. It is only people's own immature prejudice, caused by lack of spiritual vision, that stop people from being united and cooperating together. Spiritually, we are all one family.
