Mr. Ketkar said, "A man having material pleasure may not necessarily have satisfaction. Man may achieve long life or even immortality with the help of science; but still satisfaction is not guaranteed. Manashakti's founder Swami Vijnananand put forth valuable thoughts before the society to achieve satisfaction in life. Satisfaction is a mental state and it should be searched within.” Dr. Satya Pal Singh said, "Satisfaction can be attained basically through good sanskars on mind; gratitude and sacrifice for society. This is our culture since time of Vedas. Manashakti has done laudable efforts to support it with science." Gajanan Kelkar, Executive Trustee of Manashakti presented the conclusions of the survey conducted by Manashakti on Search for Satisfaction.
