unity, social harmony, integrity, prosperity, fraternity, egalitarianism, equalitarianism


Vedic literature not only deals with ritualistic performances, but also describes social harmony, unity or integrity, prosperity and fraternity in the sūktas. It gives a picture of very civilized and rich culture and people. The integrity of heart and mind always brings success in any action whether it is intellectual or social or institutional. The prayers for such concordance are found in the Saṁjňāna sūkta of Ṛgveda and elaborately in six Sāmansya sūktas of Atharvaveda. Ṛgveda sows the seeds in four mantras through the Ṛsi Saṁvanana Aňgirasa and on the basis of this idea, Atharvaveda explains the ways of integrity, fraternity and harmony in the family, in the society, among the kingdoms or in the country and among the fellow beings. A detailed is aimed to present about the ideas of harmony and prosperity through these Vedic sūktas which are guiding lights for all time. A humble attempt will be made in this paper to bring out the ways for concord which may pave the path for a healthy and happy society.
