As, O God, Thou art for ever the common Lord of all alike, as such we invoke thee now. (Rig Veda 4, 32, 13) All who can walk are equally entitled to the use of paths and roads. (Rig Veda 2, 13, 2) Be united; speak in harmony; let your minds apprehend alike; common be your prayer; common be the end of your assembly; common be your resolution; common be your deliberations; unified be your hearts; common be your intentions; perfect be your unity.
