Magnet of faith is all imp

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji says what we are that gets transmitted and on that depends the moulding of Karyakarta. This makes us to have regular introspection and find out how we are influencing others with our character and work. He says :
Remember one thing that whatever in inside is transmitted and spread. Good exposition, free sermon, beautiful discourse and forceful oratory are of no use at all if there is nothing inside. Flowery talk does not have effect. Your ardent love for the cause, your unfailing faith in the mission, your true transformation in your own self will have the greatest effect. One who has achieved self-transformation can only use his sixth sense and can discover the latent faculties and potentialities in men and can help them to manifest them.

There are hundreds and thousands of prospective workers of Vivekananda Kendra in this country lying dormant, waiting to be discovered and awakened. God has been-kind and generous enough; we need not produce or create them. The well-known story of Ulysses discovering Achilles from the band of girls is narrated by Homer in his Iliad. The workers are already there in the field.

Use your sixth sense and locate them. Talk to them, give them your schemes, take them into your confidence and let their latent capacity come out. Their subconscious mind has been already thinking about the Vivekananda Kendra and its activities. You must become a magnet to attract all these pieces of iron. The magnet is the utmost faith in the cause.

This is not a career for external show. Your thought must straightway pierce the heart of the worker. If there are shortcomings in you, they also will be transmitted. So you must first be completely transformed and be pure as crystal. There is no shortcut, no technique, no stratagem. Be sacred and try to transmit all that is very sacred in you to others. Sanskrit Subhashitam says "Ya Kriyavan sah Panditah"[He who practices (and not simply preaches) is the wise man].
