Transform oneself

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji tells workers the necessity of transforming oneself and becoming a fit instrument. He says :

Everybody is in a continuous process of transforming himself to accommodate himself in the group and thus helps the transformation of others also. They put in maximum effort to become fit, useful and beneficent instrument for the fulfillment of the goal and as a result more love, mutual respect and close affinity with them is developed. Their lives become the concentric circles moving round the same points and converging towards the same goal. Though moving in different radii, in different planes, regions, directions and velocity, they are all moving round the same centre of their objective.

Ekntahji says that once this attitude is developed, the workers enjoy the happiest relationship with one another. In a missionary organisation not only everybody vies with one another to give, who can give more,vying with one another to give. In the whole world you will find people vying with one another to take, to grab, if somebody is required to give, if possible you should grab them, grab, grab,grab. When you join missionary organization then you vie with one another to give. You give your blood, you give everything, you give time, you give your energy, you give all your intellect and all your genius for the cause. Then not only giving what you possess but you tend to acquire more and more so that you can give more. This constant transformation, the constant struggle to gain more and more enables you to give more and more.There develops this mutual relationship because of this one goal binding all of us. That everybody's development, everybody's success is in the interest of others. .. Everybody is interested in the development of others, so the happy relationship ensues.

Be goal oriented

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji says, in a missionary organisation, all constituents are goal-oriented

Another important characteristic of a missionary organization is that there is a well-defined objective around which all have come together of their own will. And therefore, they all look to the same goal. In Navagraha shrines, all the grahas (idols of the planets) are so placed that no two of them face each other. In the organization, also hardly any two constituents face each other. For their eyes are fixed on the centre and their faces are concentric. They all look to the same centre or goal. The natural consequence of this is that they all tend to have more and more adjustment and accommodation. A close affinity is established and finding the faults of others is forgotten. Shortcomings, misgivings, and such other minor things are minimized and sometimes overlooked.

Eknathji very beautifully says : In the missionary organisation, mutual relationship of the members, of the constituents is of a different type. If we ere to prepare a diagram of the missionary organisation, missionary organisation means its members. If we were to depict it by way of a diagram, hundreds and thousands and millions of people joining the mission. Now what will be the diagram? diagram may be millions of concentric circles. One centre. One center and circles. Millions, millions, doesn't matter. One centre. All look at the same center. They are all concentric. Not like Navagrahas. They are all concentric. All people looking at the same center and therefore, the relationship is of a different order. All these concentric circles because they have got one center, all look at the same center. So they enjoy the happiest relationship with one another.
