The Yoga of Management

Yoga is known to many as an exercise, posture, and meditation. This kind of Yoga is called Astanga Yoga which happens to be a small part of larger Yogic Knowledge practiced and professed by Yogic seers.  The Sanskrit word Yoga comes from the root word Yuj which means to link or connect, it can also mean Path. One of revered Vedic scripture – Bhagavad Gita – offers significant insight into this subject. Each of Bhagavad Gita’s 18 Chapters teaches 18 different Yoga which could be interpreted in a way as to find balance, happiness, success as well as opulence in our corporate life. Here’s my perspective of this timeless wisdom for business leaders and managers to attain their full potential:

The True Nature of Vedic Knowledge & Wisdom

The Vedic texts are neither theist nor atheist in nature. They are beyond the petty ideas that are born of hating, fearing, or confused human mind. Everything the Vedic texts professes is for bettering our lives. You do not have to leave your existing faith to accept or understand Vedic precepts. There is no need for you to convert to Vedic faith – as there is nothing as such. Therefore, be that Yoga, Ayurveda, Dhyana, Pranayama, Rajaneeti, or any other knowledge which stem from Vedic text is a universal knowledge that is also a world heritage.

Elevating oneself from Poverty to Prosperity unto Perpetual Bliss

Every Vedic Rishi has declared Poverty, or दारिद्र्यं (Daaridryam), as the greatest disease, or व्याधि Vyaadhi, capable of crippling not just the body but also the mind. The objective of Vedic education, therefore, was to primarily ensure Prosperity, or संमृद्धि (Samriddhim).

Mantra: The Idea that Creates, Sustains or Destroys

Mantra is by far the most misused as well as abused word of Vedic Sanskrit. The mantra was never some “spell” reciting which you could recite to “magically” summon “divine powers” or “superhuman intervention.” Mantra is also considered by many to be synonymous with yet another Vedic Sanskrit word Shloka.

The Abuse of Yoga

Bhogi is the antithesis of Yogi. While Yogi maintains detachment (not to be confused as being bereft of love) and is at eternal peace with a perpetually happy mind; Bhogi is one who is addicted to worldly pleasures and in every way manifests the Arishadvargas. Bhogi thinks about the loss of his possessions or sources of happiness and lives in fear and insecurity, he abuses his body and turns eventually turning into a Rogi (diseased) being before meeting a distraught death.

Vedic Approach to Resolving Emotional Crisis

The mind consists of ideas and thoughts. If you choose ideas and thoughts of helplessness, chance, and luck – your mind will function in ways supporting those ideas undermining your potential. But if you choose thoughts of perseverance, persistence, and forethought – the mind will utilize every faculty of your body to work to its fullest potential. So, you must be very cautious with what thoughts or ideas you feed into the mind of yours, consciously as well as unconsciously.

Overcoming the Fear of Death

Recently, I happened to counsel a person diagnosed with a terminal illness. Having read my books, she claimed that while she was “moved” by “the depth of wisdom” in my articles and books, she found them to be very “impractical.” Even though she knew full well that death was her ultimate destination, she was overwhelmed by the very fear of dying. “Who knows what happens after death?” she said. The idea of uncertainty after death was causing greater pain to her than the pain caused by her illness.
