Atman: The Ultimate Power Within  

Vedic teachings emphasize understanding and realizing the Atman also called Purusha.  While “Soul” could also be a translation of this word, as it is “the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal,” a much better word to understand Atman is “Consciousness.” Understanding this consciousness and, harnessing it with wisdom for the welfare of all is the main objective of Vedic practices.

Manas: The Mind

As per Ayurveda – which has its essence and inspiration from Vedic knowledge and wisdom –  says “Healthy mind leads to a healthy body”. Amrita Bindu Upanishad suggests “Mind is the cause for both; problems as well as solution.” The mind is the tool which enables us to understand and undertake that which is unknown.

Ahimsa: A Vedic Perspective

Dharma is not doing to others what you don't like being done by someone else to you. Dharma is that which sustains the order in self (mind), family, society, nation and the world at large.

When there’s an imposition of someone else’s will on you or your own excesses on others, that’s Himsa, causing Adharma.

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:

Justice versus Revenge: Kautilya’s perspective

In the absence of justice, error and evil thrive. Truly, evil only gets worse when those who are righteous resort to revenge and do not insist upon justice. The Ahimsa of Kautilya was based on the idea of Dharma. Ahimsa doesn’t mean you will never hurt anyone – it means you won’t hurt anyone unless they attack you first. It’s a no-first-strike policy. You can resort to retaliation during the war with pre-emptive strikes only if you are sure that the first strike would be brutal or lethal, leaving you no retaliatory capabilities.
