The economic and social development of a community as a whole, especially as advocated by Mahatma Gandhi.‘Mahatma Gandhi and Vinobha Bhave advocated the principles of antyodaya and sarvodaya for achieving high social synergy and capital.’
- ‘Unfortunately, action is yet to be taken in developing the district into a Gandhi Zilla, based on the Gandhian principles of antyodaya and sarvodaya and social and gender justice and equity.’
- ‘Gandhi's pervasive challenge to every raj is predicated on the moral values of: swadeshi, aparigraha (non-possession), sarvodaya, ahimsa, bread labour, trusteeship, non-exploitation, and equality.’
- ‘Preoccupied with khadi, naturopathy, education as a tool for social change and the philosophy of sarvodaya way of life, he carefully nurtures the ashram with grand aspirations and concrete plans.’
- ‘To see Sarvodaya in action is to see, for example, a score of teenage villagers shoveling rocks in the rain -- their "gift of labor" part of the village's assessment of its needs.’
Sanskrit, from sarva ‘all’ + udaya ‘prosperity’.
