Eknath Ranade as a young college student in Nagpur in 1930s turned to Swami Vivekananda to understand Sanatana Dharma in the context of the religions in the world. He wanted to ably reply to many objections that were raised in his college against Sanatana Dharma. He could so well put forward the subject that his Bible teacher was overwhelmed. Destiny had a still greater plan in this episode. Swami Vivekananda had said, ‘We want …fiery young men and women …intelligent and brave, who dare to go to the jaws of Death, and are ready to swim the ocean across. Do you follow me? We want hundreds like that, both men and women. Try your utmost for that end alone.’ The call of Swami Vivekananda ‘to dedicate one’s life for nation’ captured young Eknath’s heart strengthened his thought of dedicating his life for the country. He dedicated his life as a Pracharak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. Working in various capacities in Sangh, Eknathji, as he was called, since then, could feel the pulse of the society. He became a master organizer. .....Your contribution matters.... We appeal all to join in this effort by contributing your time, energy and money so that we realize the vision of Swami Vivekananda, “One vision I see clear as life before me: that the ancient Mother has awakened once more, sitting on Her throne rejuvenated, more glorious than ever. Proclaim Her to all the world with the voice of peace and benediction.”
