Homage to Mananeeya Eknathji

You Too Can Do It

We must reverse this trend. And if Swamiji inspires us, it is not because he was Divine and he descended upon earth but because he was an ordinary human being like us, just like us. We see that we are full of weaknesses but we are very eager to see that one after another we overcome our weaknesses. In the same way, he was also confronted with problems. And because he came in contact with Sri. Ramakrishna, with that great soul, he got the light , the necessary equipment, and was slowly transformed into  great personality. He became a superman and almost Divine. So that gives us the confidence that we can also do that. If he could do it in 39 years of age, if Dyaneshwar could do it in 8 years of age, if do it. This confidence is required. We can inspire this confidence in the general mass of people. Swami Vivekananda has said on a number of occasions that if you have faith in yourself also. You can do wonders. there is nothing you can not do. You must will it and you will do it. He tried to infuse this confidence in everybody through all his lectures. And it is very much true that every human soul is potentially divine. Accordingly Swami Vivekananda was also divine potentially. This potentiality is in everybody. We can rise to divine heights. This confidence we have to infuse in our people. That is the need of the hour.

The main theme of my life is to take the message of Sanatana Dharma to every home and pave the way for launching, in a big way, the man-making programme preached and envisaged by great seers like Swami Vivekananda. - Mananeeya Eknathji
