Organisation means curtailment in freedom

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji now takes the karyakartas to a very important aspect. Any organisation needs people. The people, karyakartas need to have a great amount of inter-personal relationship. It is the love among the karyakartas for the purpose of the organisational goal makes the organisation great. And therefore, all the karykartas should possess some qualities. If these qualities already exist, fine. If not, these need to be cultivated as the objective is very important.Organisation means various limitations as to how one should speak, how one should act, etc. Eknathji says :

Each individual in the organisation must have capacity to organize and also must possess certain faculties. But, there arises the problem of curtailment of personal liberty. The freedom which is generally enjoyed by the common man in the society is denied to him because of his becoming the member of an organization. In a collective life, it always happens. When one is enjoying a room independently, one has the full liberty to enjoy the room at one's own sweet will, but when one has to share the room with another, there arise restrictions in one's behaviour and to that extent, one's liberty is curtailed.


It was told about Mananeeya Eknathji how he had to adjust with his room-mate when he was studying. The friend staying with whom needed fan while sleeping at night. Eknathji did not need. So till the friend is slept he would keep doing something and after the friend had slept he would switch off fan and would sleep. There was curtailment in the freedom. Still, going together was very important. While with others, such adjustments are needed.
