The Covenant of the Asiatic Nations reminds us that, We are the children of one father, provided for by his care; and the breast of one mother have we been given to suck. Let the bonds of affection, therefore, unite us with our brothers/sisters, so that peace and happiness may dwell in our father's house. And if we be separated in the world, remember the relation that binds us to love and unity; and prefer not a stranger before our own blood. If our brother is in adversity, assist him; if our sister is in trouble, forsake her not. So shall the fortunes of our father contribute to the support of his whole race; and his care be continued to us all, in our love to each other.
