Types of organisations

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji initially draw a very wide picture of human life and the necessity of living the purposeful life. Then, in context with Bharat as we live here, the thought about the nation and need of organised efforts to fulfill the mission of the nation was explained. Then he brought out important changes that one needs to do in oneself while working in the organisation.

Now he comes to the frame of the organisation. And in it, the people who gave shape to organisation are discussed. He begins with the organisation and its types. He says :
The organization has for its centre a noble thought and people of the same noble thought come together for the fulfillment of the thought. Such an organization possesses certain features of its own and they must be understood in their proper perspective, because they form, as it were, the main pillars on which the organization is based and works in proper direction. One of the features of organization is whether it is a cadre-based organization or a cadre-less organization.

Our Vivekananda Kendra is a cadre-based organization. The Government of a country is a cadre-based organization, as the permanency of the Government depends upon the Government officers working in different cadres. The ministry may change, one party may be replaced by another, but the Government continues its working. The military is a cadre-based organization with a rigorous discipline and a hierarchy of officers. There are spiritual, social, political organizations. The Ramakrishna Mission is a spiritual organization while the RSS is a social organization. The different political parties in the country have their own organizations. All these are cadre-based.
