Being together is success

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji says how in Kendra like organsiation, each one grows and is taken care of because each one has understood the importance of being in organisation. He says:
If anybody fails, others will try to lift him up. They will consider it their duty to do it. You might have seen, on a slippery ground when we have to walk, we do it with the device of going hand in hand. If there is rain and there is lot of mud we have to cross, so we go hand in hand. What is the idea? Idea is if twenty people go hand in hand seldom it happens that all the twenty people slip at the same moment, it seldom happens. It may happen that one man slips, then the other nineteen people are there; they will pick him up. They will not allow him to slip. They won't allow him to slip. They will lift him up. The other nineteen will not think that, 'Well, now my dear friend has sat down, so I feel it is my duty that I also slip'. No. They are hand in hand; they are wedded to the cause, not to each other. 'Because he has slipped, I will also slip, because I am a good friend of him' – No! If he has slipped, all the more duty bound you are to see that he is lifted up and you don't allow him to slip.
