Kalpataru Divas Shubheccha

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

MAMAJI SENDS THIS SPECIAL MESSAGE TO ALL : LET THIS KALPATARU DIVAS FULFILL YOUR WISH TO BE A NIMITTA IN HIS HANDS TO SERVE THROUGH VIVEKANANDA KENDRA.

Mananeeya Eknathji had a very positive outlook to make use of what one has. All are having desires and having known, if we know the art and science of transformation, we can use the same desires for our own highest good. Here he says :
Just as one kind of energy can be transformed into another kind of energy or even as energy can be changed into matter and vice versa, so also one type of desire can be transformed into another sublime desire. Desire has done immense good to human life and it also has caused the greatest harm to society.

He further elucidates this point with the example of Sant Tulasidas. He says :
Tulsidas was an ordinary man with desires and lusts but because of the scolding of his wife, he repented and his lust for animal pleasure was transformed into the highest devotion for God. It was a turning point in his life and Sant Tulsidas was born out of it.

It is the right time that came in the life of Sant Tulasidas that changed his life. So is case with all karyakartas. Having joined the Vivekananda Kendra, the turning point has come in the life. Now it is to be made best use of. And therefore, Eknathji says :
Thus the energy was converted, just as in physics we have light changed into heat and heart transformed into energy. Desire, intelligence, strength and power are all potential energies, but if they are used to satisfy the crude desires, they deteriorate the very rationality of man. Thus, as an individual grows from childhood to boyhood and from boyhood to adulthood there is a progressive growth in his desires. It is the intellectual powers that finally determine his future.

ON KALPATARU DIVAS, LET'S PONDER OVER THE OPPORTUNITY THAT WE ALL HAVE GOT. BEING IN KENDRA, WE ARE ALWAYS NEARER TO LIFE AND TEACHINGS OF SWAMIJI, EKANTHJI. BOTH ARE GREAT POWERS. THEIR DESIRED AND WORK FOR MAKING BHARATMATA THE JAGADTURU! LET'S ALSO KEEP IT IN MIND AND YOKE OURSELVES HEART AND SOUL IN THIS ANGIKRITAM PUNYAKARYAM!
