To look at the Rock Memorial is to remember the immortal message of the Gita that ‘Yoga is dexterity in action’, how beauty and majesty can be moulded through skilful action, how harmony is created when devotion is combined with effort; how magnificence is achieved through selflessness and surrender. As one becomes absorbed in the spirit of the Rock Memorial, it is Eknathji’s life and work that come before one’s mind. All these and more are enshrined in the Vivekananda Rock Memorial brought into existence through the indomitable will-power and the inspiring organising and harmonising capacities of one great man, Ma. Eknathji Ranade. The Vivekananda Rock Memorial thus captures in it also the total dedication, self effacement, team-spirit and tireless energy of Eknathji and his team of workers who were ready to sacrifice everything for the ideals of Swami Vivekananda and for the man who was instrumental in working them out.
