Ideas of One Humanity, Love and Peace in World Religions: Comparative Study of Ginan “Hum dil Khalak Allah Sohi Vase” with a Hindu Bhajan

“Say Nothing of my religion. It is known to God and myself alone. Its evidence before the world is to be sought in my life. If it has been honest and dutiful to society the religion which has regulated it cannot be bad.” — Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

Ancient voices are talking to us. Their message is clear: You are One Humanity. The God of the Vedas, of the Torah, of the Bible, of the Qur’an and of Guru Granth of Sikhism is One. Back in time, as much as four thousand years ago the Vedas had a profound message for humanity.

“That which exists is One; Sages call it by different names.”  [1]

Fourteen hundred years ago the message of the Holy Qur’an was loud and clear:

“O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul .” – 4:1

Prominent sentiments of the Qur’an are compassion and peace to all. So much so that the salutation of Muslims is Salam: peace and security to you. The thrust of Emanuel Kant’s philosophy is humanism and service to humanity as its core gospel. He said that a Moral Law, which was not dependent on sensory perceptions or on human reason was innate in every person and applied to all humanity, to all faiths and at all times. His maxim was:

“Act in such a way that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in the person of any other, never simply as a means, but always at the same time as an end.”

Akhil brahmand ma ek tu Shree Hari,
Jujav rupe anant bhase,
Deh ma Deva tu, tej ma tatva tu,
Shunya ma shabda thai Ved Vase

In the entire universe,
you alone are eternal existent,
yet infinite forms you assume,
In the body, you are the divine soul,
In Light, you are the essence,
In the Void, you became the Word
that the Sacred Veda have sung about
…In the entire universe…
