Mananeeya Eknathji says : India had such ideal society in which the needs of all were taken care of and therefore it can be again given to the world by Bharat alone. And that is what is the work before us. Eknathji explains
Our ancestors had evolved such a society and with great confidence they could proclaim and invite the people of the world to come and visit this society and to follow its precepts for their well-being.
Manu says:
Etad Desha Prasutasya Sakashadagrajanmanah
Swam swam charitran shiksheran prithivyam Sarva manavah II.20
"All men in the world should learn their own life and conduct from the Brahmin born in this region." The Brahmins, that is the thinkers on sociology, have evolved such an ideal social order that anybody, in this world irrespective of his nationality, religion, colour, faith and creed, can follow the maxims of successful individual life as well as conflict less perfect society. China, Russia and America in the present times are trying their own ideologies, but everything is still in the experimental stage. But this is a fact accomplished by ancient sociologists of our land. Everybody must get food, clothing and shelter, also education and training to lead a successful life and something more. Man is not only body-mind and intellect, but something above this and as such man must be considered as a whole. The yearnings of the inner self also must be satisfied. India has to guide the world for that India needs reconstruction The ancient seers, philosophers, sages visualized all this and have shown the way with full confidence that all men in the world can safely and satisfactorily follow the code of conduct. As Einstein has remarked, India will show the way. It is India's traditional ever existing mission to show the way, for ages we were experimenting and ultimately we had succeeded in evolving the perfect social order. But our efforts to spread and perpetuate the same have been frustrated due to manifold reasons, some of them being extraneous. But we have to take courage and be on our toes to fulfill the mission. This is why ours is a nation-building service mission. The nation has lost its mission, it is to be re-instated, the nation is to be built, and perhaps it is to be reconstructed.

Foreign countries and big powers in the world are in search of peace. India is the land of peace from time immemorial. Foreigners have attacked and tried to ravage the men, land and culture of this nation, but it has never attacked any country. It has sent peace mission and message of higher life to other countries. It is the ordained duty for this land to deliver this message even today to the world. A strife less society will be the supreme and most precious gift that India can give to the world. It will be an unparalleled and inconceivable act of service.

Mananeeya Eknathji tells here the work that the Kendra is to do. He says : Establishing an ideal social order is the highest form of service. Over and above these three categories of service, there is a fourth category which is the supreme one. If a whole people in some corner of the globe successfully evolve a satisfactory social order that can provide abundant opportunities to each of the constituents to meet the basic needs of the body-mind complex and allow him to fulfill the inner aspirations, it would be the supreme act of service
Yatobhyuday Nishshreyas sidhdhi sa Dharma Gautam-Nyaya Sutra
 It would be remembered in the pages of human history. It would be the right and perfect social order. All would be leading a community life and there would be no room for cut-throat competitions, exploitations and such other harmful traits of life. It would cooperative like the limbs of the body. The limbs of the body have no quarrel or conflict or competition amongst themselves and all strive to make the life a success. No grudge that the stomach has avarice and is exploiting limbs. It receives, but only for proper distribution of energy to each and every limb and particle of the body. Under such circumstances class-war has no scope at all. People in the world are striving for such an ideal society. They want it. Herculean efforts are being made all over the world and every school of thought is trying to evolve such a society. A society in which there will be balanced social relations, happy and satisfactory social order, freedom from exploitation is most urgently wanted today. The ideal society must fulfill the needs of the body-mind complex; at the same time it must satisfy the yearnings of the inner being of man.

Nation's aspirations

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

While describing about what makes society a nation, Mananeeya Eknathji says : It is the capacity and desire to interpret the world around us and this life itself is yet another aspect that needs to be given attention to.  The people, through their group-consciousness, evolve a philosophy of life. They formulate metaphysics and ethics and they have a common ideal. When was this world created, who created it and why, and such other topics and discussed by them and conclusions are arrived at. They develop as a nation marching towards a goal in one direction.
Swamiji said, 'Each nation has a destiny to fulfil, each nation has a message to deliver, each nation has a mission to accomplish. Therefore, from the very start, we must have to understand the mission of our own race, the destiny it has to fulfil, the place it has to occupy in the march of nations, the note which it has to contribute to the harmony of races.'
In this light each nation has its distinct personality, aspirations, beliefs, modes of thinking notions of propriety etc. Americans and Indians differ to a great extent in many of these matters. This mission is not created or produced; it is handed over to the nation from generation to generation. The ancient seers had given up their entire worldly life and devoted themselves to this thought of the mission. It was through their austerity and penance, discrimination and thorough search that the mission dawned upon them and they have given it to us.
People who aspire and desire to serve this nation must learn this mission, goal, destiny, and message and must realize the field of their work. They should be conscious of the arena in which they have to work.
