Arishadvargas: The Six Detriments for Success

अरिशड्वर्ग (Arishadvargas) are six these six-detrimental-qualities a person must overcome to gain and retain material power and influence. Even one of the Arishadvargas is enough to cause a person's destruction. Similarly, the person who has overcome all Arishadvargas has the ability not just to harness power – but also to retain it in an enduring manner. According to the Vedic sages (Rishis), only those who have overcome their Arishadvargas can be called Wise.

King Bharat’s Dilemma vis-à-vis Pandava’s Paradox

One of the common questions posed about the Mahabharata is, “How did Yudhishthira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva – who weren’t born to Pandu – all come to be known as Pandavas (sons of Pandu) and claim the throne of Hastinapur over legitimate 100 sons of Dhritarashtra (elder brother of Pandu?” This article by U.

The Vedic Perspective on Criticism

According to Vedic rishis, anyone dedicated to criticizing others without the willingness to accept criticism is a Murkha or a fool. But this doesn’t mean that we must not criticize or that criticism by itself is bad. Just that before we criticize others we need to be willing to accept criticism with the same fairness we expect from the person we are planning to criticize.

Rajaneeti, Artha Shastra & Artha Sutras

Despite the significant transfer of power to people in most parts of the world through democracy, there isn’t a single school that can claim to teach politics. Even the greatest schools of politics either teach the history of politics or economics, at best. There’s no viable course available anywhere in modern academic establishments to prepare an individual for a political career, except Kautilya's Arthashastra.

Vedic approach to stress and crisis management

Hope and fear are nothing but figments of human imagination. When we fear, we affect our mind in a negative way; when we hope, we seek for viable alternatives. The Vedic thought, however, professes a golden middle path – a state of perfect equilibrium where you are neither worried nor fearful. You are neither happy nor unhappy. Many may wonder, what’s the use of a mind that’s neither joyful nor sorrowful? As a matter of fact, an indifferent mind, in many ways, helps to lead a fruitful life and is in a state of perpetual bliss. Because it knows the eternal truth, that in life neither happiness nor sorrow is forever; it shuns both. It concentrates on work. It seeks to do good things not just for oneself or one’s family, but for the whole world. Yet, it's detached from the fruits of its action. When the fruit is good, it may be happy but when otherwise, it isn’t bothered much. This uproots all scope for stress or crisis.

Vinayam: The hallmark of Vedic knowledge & wisdom
