Suniyojit Samparka

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Samparka is all the more important and Mananeeya Eknathji gave stress on Focused Smaprka. As Eknathji says,  it is true that
"We give out the thought to others when it inspires us and makes us restless for its execution. Those others if they are open and responsive, are inspired immediately. If not, at least after a period of close contacts and discussions, they are converted to our thought and they are prepared to carry out the programme indicated, to put the thought in concrete form. Thus, they become the followers of a mission." However getting right persons is very important. In  Eknathji, Niveditadidi writes :
Leaders like Sri Kalyanasundaram of the Right Communist Party, Madras, thought that Vivekananda Rock Memorial Committee would never approach him. However, when Eknathji approached him he was very happy. Swami Vivekananda had given back to India her lost respect and self-confidence. Therefore, Swami Vivekananda touches the right chords in the heart of each Indian. Only a person with a clear vision, large in his heart to accommodate all people and also adept in language and deeds could bring all people together in the name of Swami Vivekananda. Eknathji had all these qualities. Therefore, when he went with the name of Swami Vivekananda, every heart - whether a Communist or Jansangh, Congress, or Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam or Forward Block Party - responded positively.
Time was running out. If permission was not secured before the Birth Centenary year of Swami Vivekananda was over, the issue would lose its urgency, if not importance. Eknathji again met Sri Lal Bahadur Shastriji, and enquired whether he could collect the signatures of some Members of the Parliament appealing for permission for the Rock Memorial. Shastriji told Eknathji, "Do not be impatient. It will take time. I shall let you know when to prepare and present the memorandum with signatures of some Members of the Parliament". Eknathji then camped at Delhi. He prepared the ground so well, that when he got a green signal from Shastriji, within two days he collected the signatures of 323 Members of Parliament. ... He contacted first the leader of the party with whom he already had discussions and had obtained his support. Seeing the signatures of their leaders, the rest of the MPs too signed. No party was left un-approached. No Member of Parliament present in Delhi at that time was left out. All the 323 MPs then present in Delhi signed two copies of the memorandum appealing for permission for the memorial to be built at mid-sea Rock at Kanyakumari. No caste, creed, region, religion or political affiliation became a hurdle in expressing the desire that "the Memorial should be built on the Rock at Kanyakumari.

It is all possible with Loksamparka for which convictions in oneself are needed and with that the most important - Hard Efforts. When Sri Lal Bahadur Shastri told him to wait, he was not just waiting but was also contacting different political leaders, parliamentarians, and briefing them about the Rock, its importance in the life of Swami Vivekananda, the desire of the Committee to put up the memorial and also the problem of getting permission.
