Ma. P. Parmeswaranji's Message on Universal Brotherhood Day

September 11 is now famously known as the Universal Brotherhood Day. It is because that day Swami Vivekananda addressed the delegates at the Parliament of World Religions at Chicago as 'Sisters and Brothers'. He addressed the Parliament as the representative of the Hindus all over the world. To the Hindu, all men and women, irrespective of caste, creed or religion are brothers and sisters. It was for the first time in the history of the world that such a beautiful concept was expressed. It is in remembrance of this that this day is called Universal Brotherhood Day.

Shiksharthis who have undergone the course of four months here as part of their 5 year training period, will certainly spread this message through their life and their activities. That is the expectation from the Vivekananda Kendra. Let us all become role models in this.

Every Karyakarta must cultivate two kinds of abilities- one that of organising and two spreading the ideology. Ma. Eknathji had these two in ample measures as the Sir Karyavah of the RSS and later on in founding and spreading the Vivekananda Kendra. This stood him in good stead as a powerful orator and unique organiser. I had experienced this in my close association with him. Every Karyakarta must also assiduously cultivate these two aspects.

Let the blessings of Swami Vivekananda and Ma. Eknathji be on you all.
