Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday called upon Hindus across the world to unite for the betterment of the society.

Speaking at the World Hindu Congress in Chicago, Bhagwat hailed the achievements of the Hindu community and said that it has the largest number of meritorious people. "We have to come together. The Hindu society will progress only when it comes together," he said in his inaugural address at the second World Hindu Congress.

"If a lion is alone, wild dogs can invade and destroy the lion. We must not forget that. We want to make the world better. We have no aspiration of dominance. Our influence is not a result of conquest or colonization."

He also said, The Hindu society will progress and prosper only when it will work as a society. Some organisations, or parties working alone will not suffice, Bhagwat said, calling for bringing the spirit of teamwork towards the common goal of betterment of the mankind.

"To work together, we have to accept the consensus. We are in a position to work together," Bhagwat said.

The second World Hindu Congress marks the commemoration of the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda's historic speech at the Parliament of the World's Religions in 1893 in Chicago.
