My Vision: Chariji Maharaj

So, the way the world is going, there is a need for a visionary who will hold to that delicate thread of the essentials of what constitutes life.... You see how a vision grows, and how in its essentiality it is just an atomic, basic atom of a thought.... Be brave and think.... Have we the courage to do that? You can have it if you aude sapere – dare to think. Dare to think, ‘What is this guy talking about vision?’– and then you will find out.... My vision is to make you all visionaries.

—P. Rajagopalachari, HeartSpeak 2011, 1st edn., 2012

I remember this talk very well. Chariji Maharaj came to the dorm in Manapakkam Ashram, Shri Ram Chandra Mission, to address a team of functionaries who were getting prepared to attend an upcoming seminar. The person who was organizing this seminar requested Master, Chariji Maharaj to give a talk, and when Master asked for the topic, he said, we want to know about your vision. Master replied, “My vision is to make you all visionaries”. He gave the talk and left, and we were all astounded, could not move, the impact of the sitting and the talk being so profound. It was a life-changing moment for me.
