Organizataion : Swamiji's Vision - Eknathji's Mission

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

A hundred thousand men and women, fired with the zeal of holiness, fortified with eternal faith in the Lord, and nerved to lion's courage by their sympathy for the poor and the fallen and the downtrodden, will go over the length and breadth of the land, preaching the gospel of salvation, the gospel of help, the gospel of social raising-up — the gospel of equality.  -Swami Vivekananda

As a matter of fact, the Rock Memorial is only a seed. It is the seed that has sprouted. The seed has the potentiality to sprout and to spread all over, to continue to grow, to throw up branches, foliage and all that because it is in the seed. One does not know what will happen to the seed, what potentiality is there, to what extent it will grow. It is difficult to predict. But then, the potentiality is there is in the seed, because the seed is the vision. It is not just a seed. It is a vision, the vision of a great man like Swami Vivekananda. It is Swamiji's mission that is reincarnated in the form of Eknathji's vision. It is that which has given shape to this movement, this organisation. So it is this mission that is the seed, that is growing.

It is an automatic living, organic growth. That is why it has been continually spreading sometimes in ways in which we have not even thought of. In the potential, growth and spread are inherent, contained within the seed; the organisation continues to grow in new forms and new ways. It continues to grow, it grows, it must grow. May kinds of activities are going on In fact more activities are going on outside Kanyakumari than in Kanyakumari. We have activities all over : Not just geographically spread, activities are spreading at various levels, in various ways, in various areas, serving various purposes. This way it has been growing, expanding.
