At the Vedic Management Center, we have been dedicated to promoting Kootaneeti, a Vedic Approach to Strategic Living, since 2016. Our journey began with "The Kautilya Project," but we have since uncovered a wealth of timeless knowledge and wisdom that we are eager to share with others. We offer a range of resources, including articles, books, courses, and consulting services on Kootaneeti, which have been utilized by many organizations including a few Fortune 500 companies. To make these resources more accessible, we have created this dedicated section for Kootaneeti on our website.

What is Kootaneeti?

In this video U. Mahesh Prabhu, a pioneer in Vedic Management, explains the colossal knowledge and wisdom behind Kootaneeti - The Vedic Art & Science of Strategic Living. Besides emphasising why Kootaneeti remain important in addressing all subtle to complex challenges facing the world.


The Vedic Art of Strategic Living

Kootaneeti, the Vedic Art of Strategic Living, is a nearly lost Vedic art and science for leaders initially designed to promote the right use of power. For centuries, its teachings helped build sagely empires and create social well-being, prosperity and lasting peace. Kootaneeti focuses on how to use intellect to convert difficulties into strengths by understanding the workings of the human mind. Its teachings can be utilized in adverse situations where the wrong use of power as well as resources prevail and new opportunities remain unrecognized.


Both individuals and institutions can benefit from learning the fundamentals of Kootaneeti to neutralize opposition and develop new strategies by special insights and astute efforts.In an age of social, economic, and political uncertainty, Kootaneeti is a useful tool to prepare leaders to address new challenges and achieve their objectives sustainably.


U. Mahesh Prabhu is a seasoned media, management and political consultant who has been researching this subject for over a decade in Vedic texts and teaching it worldwide, along with Dr David Frawley, an internationally renowned and honoured Acharya of Vedic knowledge on many levels. The book presents the ancient secrets of Kootaneeti in a subtle and simple way with practical insights, stories, and parables. The book will not only entertain and educate but will also enlighten you.
