Swamiji's Vision and Eknathji's Mission of Bharatmata Jagadguru!!!

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

On 43rd Birth Anniversary, let us recall the thoughts that Mananeeya Eknathji had in the starting of Vivekananda Kendra on 7 January 1972. In the editorial of Yuva Bharati, he writes :

The remedy for the ills of our country, therefore, lies in launching a mighty movement of right thought flooding the entire country. It has to be a two-pronged move. It is to be aimed, on the one hand, at (1) transforming our people's inherent God-wardness into right spiritual urge rising out of the Vedic teachings, namely, (i) each soul is potentially divine and (ii) faith in God, in turn, means faith in one's self, i.e., in one's potentiality to rise to divine heights. On the other hand, it is (2) to convert the spiritual fervour thus released into works of national reconstruction.

The movement described above has been born on 7 January 1972 and the name it bears is Vivekananda Kendra. The seed of this movement was in fact sown as far back as three quarters of a century ago by Swami Vivekananda himself, when he brought into being the Sannyasi Order of the Ramakrishna Mission. This Order has  been 'preparing the ground since then by propagating the twin ideals of renunciation and service, specially among the intellectuals. The time is now ripe and the present conditions also demand that enlightened people of this country yoke themselves to these ideals, and rouse the masses to intense activity towards national reconstruction. The coming into being of the Vivekananda Kendra is only an expression of that deep urge felt in the country.


Since 1972, Vivekananda Kendra - a spiritually oriented service mission - is continuously growing. Here are some glimpses :
  • 813 Branch centres regularly taking the vision of Swamiji which was the mission of Eknathji to all through Karyapaddhati - Samskar Varga, Yog Varga, Swadhyay Varga - various shibirs for different age groups, competitions in schools and colleges in the 22 States of Bharat
