Horizontal communication

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji used to follow this system of Horizontal communications and this can be seen from a number of letters he has sent. In most of the letters we find sharing the development of the Vivekananda Rock Memorial Construction work and later of Vivekananda Kendra to almost everybody from all ranks of the society. In his letter to Sri Vinoba ji, he writes :

Poojya Baba,

 

Sashtang Namaskar Vinanti Vishesh

            I was on tour in the first fortnight of last month. But almost always I am at Kanyakumari in the second fortnight. The training of 4th batch of 11 Jeevanvrati Karyakartas concluded on 26th April and all the Karyakartas have started leaving for their designated Karyakshetra. They soon will join in their respective places. This year too they have been sent mainly to Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Assam, Andaman etc. One of the Karyakartas from this year's batch is posted in Sikkim also.

            I came to know through newspaper that Mananiya Prime Minister Sri Morarjibhai Desai will soon be on tour of Tamilnadu so I have come to Delhi with the purpose that he should include Kanyakumari also in his tour programme. I met him yesterday. He said that his whole tour programme is getting rescheduled due to the on ensuing Vidhansabha Elections. I came to know from him that at least at present whole programme is uncertain.

            I am going to Assam in the third week of this month. I will be on tour there for nearly two weeks. Letters from many candidates willing to join 5th batch of Jeevan vrati have come and still are coming. My tour to the selected places in various states will start in the next month to meet them personally. As usual the training course for 5th batch will start on 11th September.

Sasneha Namaskar to all the brothers & sisters of Ashram.

Yours,

Eknath Ranade.
