Yagna Bhava – Selfless Karma with an Attitude of Sacrifice

WHAT IS YAGNA BHAVA

Yagya literally means a sacrifice to some one for attaining harmony in life. Yagna Bhava is the attitude to work for the benefit Yagna Bhavaof entire cosmos rather than for individuals. Instead of focusing on short term goals of self, Yagna Bhava is to focus on a long term goal of a sustainable and harmonious cosmos. Off course it does not mean to ignore the interest of self and family but it only implies to increase the circle of our activities to include others as well. When we do something for ourselves or even our family members it is called an action done for self and is bounded in nature. But when we do something for others without any personal gains as a selfless gesture, it is called an action not bounded in nature. This is called art of giving- giving everything that may help others and make this society, country and even the planet a better place. In fact it is called science of giving and to understand this we need to think with science perspective!! Yes you heard it right we need to think with science perspective rather than just believing whatever is told to us by scriptures even if it is related moral values. [Read more…]

RELEVANCE OF INDIAN ETHOS FOR MANAGEMENT STUDENTS AIMING FOR PROFESSIONAL EXCELLENCE

Importance of Indian Ethos Management

Indian Ethos ManagementThen I thought let this thing be automatically be reflected and concluded from the rest of this post, where I will be talking about the basic theory of Indian Ethos Management for harnessing the processes and means to attain the end result and to believe in theory of Karma Yoga for manifesting Professional Excellence.After typing the above post title, I realized that I have made the mistake by writing the term – ‘relevance of Indian Ethos for Management’, as Indian Ethos Management (IEM) is now a widely accepted term and philosophy, which is not only time-tested, ingrained even in day-to-day life since Vedic Era, but also a proven philosophy well in each Domain in Modern era. The principle of Indian Ethos looks at life with a holistic approach where there is no compartmentalization in personal and professional domains. There is a firm belief in addressing the root cause of a problem rather than just hovering over its visible symptoms, which is very important to understand specifically for an MBA student to build his very basic foundation of Management Lessons. Hence the title of this post should be ‘Importance of Indian Ethos for Management’ rather than ‘relevance of Indian Ethos for Management’.
