Lokasamskar

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji expected total samarpan - dedication - for the cause of Swami Vivekananda. And, so quoting Swamiji's words in 'Vivekananda's Rousing Call to the Hindu Nation' he places the ideal of Mahavira Hanuman in front of the karyakartas.

You have now to make the character of Mahavira your ideal. See how at the command of Ramachandra he crossed the ocean. He had no care for life or death! He was a perfect master of his senses and wonderfully sagacious. You have now to build your life on this great ideal of personal service. Through that, all the other ideals will gradually manifest in life. Obedience to the Guru without questioning, and strict obedience of Brahmacharya – this is the secret of success. As on the one hand Hanuman represents the ideal of service, so on the other he represents the leonine courage, striking the whole world with awe. He has not the least hesitation in sacrificing his life for the good of Rama. A supreme indifference to everything except the service of Rama, even to the attainment of the status of Brahman or Shiva, the great World-Gods!

Only the carrying out of Shri Rama's behest is the one vow of his life! Such whole-hearted devotion is wanted.


As Hanuman dedicated himself to Sri Ram so also, let each karyakarta dedicate himself to Organisation in the form of Sri Ram.
