This is Vivekananda Rock Memorial and is located near Kanyakumari – the southernmost land’s-end of India. It is in the mid-sea about two and half furlong away from the shore. Every year millions from around the world visit this famous Monument. The story of Vivekananda Rock Memorial is a unique Success Story.
At a time when this Monument was considered to be impossibility, Sri Eknathji Ranade by applying the Dynamics of Success, made it possible.
The Vivekananda Memorial is standing on the Rock on which Swami Vivekananda had meditated for three days and three nights in December 1892. During the meditation, Swamiji realized the Goal of his life and decided to participate in the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago, America in 1893. The rest, as we say, is history!
During the 100th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda in 1963, people of India decided to erect his Statue on the Rock as a mark of respect and in remembrance of his great contribution in transforming India.
Majority were in favour of the Memorial, But –
And then Sri Eknathji Ranade entered who was Pracharak in RSS. He had held the post of Sarkaryavah of RSS. He was a passionate follower of Swami Vivekananda and he had compiled book on Swami Vivekananda’s vision of Strong and Powerful India. Sri Eknathji was an able leader and a resourceful proven organiser.
The story of Vivekananda Rock Memorial is an amazing Success Story!
It is most important to understand the creation of Vivekananda Rock Memorial. This is a success story of a person. It is the story of success wherein all the members of Parliament, all the State Govt’s. of India and lakhs of common people and various institutions contributed. This is the success story of the Man who represented everyone. This is the story of Ma. Eknathji.
This Success Story shows us “How success is achieved”, what are the essential Dynamics of Success which can be applied in our own lives to succeed because “Everyone wants to be successful” and all are “Born to Succeed”.
Thus, Vivekananda Rock Memorial perhaps became the only such example in the world that the Memorial in granite gave birth to a living Memorial, to a mighty service organization.
Vivekananda Rock Memorial which is celebrating its 50th year is in true sense a national memorial - A memorial for which all MPs irrespective of their colours, religions, regions or creeds appealed for; a memorial for which people donated throughout the country with one rupee or two-rupee donation; the only memorial for which almost all state governments irrespective of whichever party was in power donated minimum one lakh rupees each; the memorial which has the harmonious blending of different styles of traditional architectures in our country.
On this occasion we are very happy to contact you and look forward to your best wishes and association with Vivekananda Kendra in the future.
