Three Vows

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji asks each of the worker to follow three vows. He says :

People must feel on critical scrutiny that the moral rectitude and the essential attitude of a Sannyasi towards life are equally present in the worker. We call our order a NON-SANNYASI ORDER and not a household as well as a Sannyasi order. Taking into consideration the strength and capacity of an individual, he has done the maximum renunciation within his reach. He takes three vows (i) Shuchita (or purity, and not of celibacy necessarily), (ii) Aparigraha or non-possession, the guiding star of a life either married or celibate; and (iii) implicit obedience to the organization, a resolution of mind to follow rules, regulations, policy etc., of the organization most rigorously.
