Universal Brotherhood: the theosophical conception that all human beings are members of a spiritual unity

Hinduism A true yogi observes Me in all beings and also sees every being in Me. Indeed, the self-realized person sees Me, the same Supreme Lord, everywhere. (Bhagavad Gita 6.29)

Recognising oneself in all beings, and all beings in oneself, be happy, free from the sense of responsibility and free from preoccupation with me. (Astavakra Gita 15:06)

Hinduism The most advanced devotee sees within everything the soul of all souls, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, ŚrīKṛṣṇa.

Consequently he sees everything in relation to the Supreme Lord and understands that everything that exists is eternally situated within the Lord -(Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.2.45)

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
(Matthew 5:44, Today’s New International Version)

Hinduism one who thus views all living entities with the idea that I am present within each of them, and who by taking shelter of this divine knowledge offers due respect to everyone, is considered actually wise. Such a man sees equally the brāhmaṇa and the outcaste, the thief and the charitable promoter of
brahminical culture, the sun and the tiny sparks of fire, the gentle and the cruel. – Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.29.13

Hinduism A man who is a friend of all, who endures all, who is devoted to tranquility, who has subdued his senses, and from whom fear and wrath have departed, and who is self-possessed, is released. He who moves among all beings as if they were like himself, who is self-controlled, pure, free from vanity and egoism, he is, indeed, released from everything  Anugita Chap 4

“To love is the road to strength. To love in spite of all is the secret of greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe.” What is Greatness – L. Ron Hubbard
