a cosmos n not a chaos

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji stresses on the systematic bent of mind for the total development of the karyakarta along with the work that he has shouldered. The systematic approach in work helps in training the mind, disciplining it, focussing it and in the process further developing it. In another words it is the Vyavastha aspect of the work.

Eknathji here takes the approach of 'general to particular'. Whatever we see in the day to day life is referred and from that he infers that there is a cosmos and not a chaos in the creation which equally is needed in the organisation.

He says : There is Order – System in the universe. We find that everything in this universe is a systematic organization. The solar system with its enormous expanse is still a system and there is not the slightest deviation from the order which has been laid down. Our sentences in the normal talk have a system. We think of music and we find that the seven notes, even though different from one another in their pitch, create a melody if they are harmoniously tuned and arranged. A machine works efficiently because its system is in order; if it deviates, we say the machine is out of order. If our physical system works harmoniously, we enjoy ease and the pleasure; but if there is disorder, we get disease and it is the doctor who has to put the system into order again. Thus we learn that right from the largest solar system up to the smallest machine or plant or being, there is ORDER. There is SYSTEM everywhere in the universe and therefore it is a cosmos and not a chaos.
