Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America – Shantiniketan Family Camp

Be united. Speak in harmony. Let your minds apprehend alike. Common be your prayers. Common be the end of your assembly. Common be your resolutions with unanimous understanding. United be your hearts. United be your thoughts. Perfect be your unity. – Rig-Veda

Come together, no matter what for; have mass programs in unison; Discipline will be learnt; Self-confidence will grow. – Swami Vivekananda

Let us walk (march) together; Let us speak (and sing) together; let us think together (wedded to a common ideal and goal); Let us behave, act, struggle hard, achieve and preserve the divine qualities of our forefathers (dev-purush). – Dr. Keshav Baliram Hedgewar
