Then 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’.
The one which is all pervading, eternal and infinite is termed as Brahman also known as GOD. We human beings always look towards Him in our difficult times, thanks Him in happy moments and realize ultimately that we may discriminate our behavior with different people in our vicinity depending on their position, power and utility but GOD never does such discrimination. He is like a river which gives nourishment to every thing it passes though. It also gives water to every body that approaches it. But you know what even if a river do not differentiate while giving water- the seeker may get different quantity depending on the shape of his vessel.
Similar to this fact GOD also although do not make any differentiation, but different devotees come with different vessels of purpose and hence they get the same from Him accordingly. Therefore Bhagvad Gita has defined four different types of Bhaktas depending on their motives to approach GOD. They are as follows:-
No other text could have explained it better than Bhagvad Gita’s below mentioned verse:-
The advancement in technology and fast means of communications like mobile phones, internet has landed the world on a fast track and people hardly get leisure time to enjoy their hobbies, to listen to their soul, to take care of their loved ones and all the precious moments are passed in coping up with the pace of life and its cut throat competition. It’s like watching a movie in fast forward mode, where although we can see every body in action but can hardly feel the emotions. In such a scenario pressure of not only to be ahead but also to survive has increased multifolds.Continue reading
Today in our hectic lifestyle when one had to be continuously in action to cope up with the competition and ever changing external scenarios. Where the world around us is dynamic and changing each moment to give us surprises at every point, we wonder if there is any thing left certain except uncertainty. Since the Cosmos is dynamic in nature and hence challenging, Hindu scriptures also call it ‘JAGAT’ where GAT indicates the ever changing -‘sadaiv gachati’ (ever changing) nature of Cosmos. We as ‘JEEVA’ also the experiencer of the cosmos often feels insecure with this uncertainty and always search for something which is certain and changeless, we unknowingly want an anchor in our lives which is reliable and can help us in coping up with the dynamic nature of Cosmos. Our Hindu scriptures say it can be only ‘ISWAR’ (GOD) which is eternal, changeless and hence can help us as an anchor to the world. “JAGAT’ as a field of experience, ‘JEEVA’ as experiencer and ‘ISHWAR’ as an anchor in totality is known as ‘TRIPUTI’.
