On this day of Mananeeya Eknathji - 19 Nov - His way of making life purposeful, meaningful, Sarthak is explained here in His own words.
Everything is meaningful, and nothing is meaningless. The Creator has composed this great eternal book of the universe; read every page, every word, every letter of it and understand the thought underlying it. God has definitely proposed, designed something noble. We do not pay attention to it and spoil it through our ignorance. Temptations intervene and try to allure us. They also are designed to test us, to give us an opportunity to be aware of our strength and to overcome them. We must not merely surrender to everything like the deaf and the dumb, but must have an enlightened approach towards everything around us. Look around critically and you will find that every minute and insignificant thing in nature, has a message to deliver to you and that too, for your benefit and progress. One has simply to have a receptive ear and an attentive mind, to listen and to grasp the messages in the proper light and get liberated.
Try to understand the meaning of everything around us. Why all the things are there? What is the meaning and purpose of them? Why have I been born? Why have I been brought to Kanyakumari? I did not ever dream of this when I was undergoing my education. Why and by whom have I been inspired to come here? Now that it is designed that I should be here, I have to shape my future in a worthy manner. I must have the right approach to everything. Many a time have I seen people miss their bus. Let it not happen to me. I am here in this ancient sacred land, and not in America or Germany. Why?... We have to look at the world around us in the right manner. Otherwise life becomes drab and boring because of the dull routine, day in and day out. It is an unrelieved monotony for many a people who lack this approach as they are not equipped with the acumen of looking through the external nature and grasping its meaning. Interpretation of the world around us and the happenings therein convey to us the eternal message which when followed in the right spirit leads to the good finale of each individual life. This is the only way to abide by the proposals of God and not to make light of them.
