Management and Hinduism
Indian economy is today the cynosure of the whole world because of its consistent growth which is leading to augmentation of interest in India, and its culture. As Western world attempts to better understand Indian culture, they may as well unearth that India’s ancient scriptures present insight into cultural customs and values and develop lessons for the corporate world to effectively use in and outside India. It has been reported that many of the top business schools in the United States have introduced “self-mastery classes” using Indian philosophy to help students improve their leadership skills. One of the more popular and useful of the ancient texts is the Bhagavad Gita.
It was felt by the Indian Management thinkers that the western models needed certain modifications for implementation in the Indian Environment. Western model advocated the concept of knowledge worker whereas Indian model calls for the concept of wisdom worker. Depending completely on the western model might lead to success with stress and tension while in Indian model of management, success is accompanied with harmony and happiness, not only for leaders but for followers also. Bhagavad Gita, and for that matter several other ancient Indian texts, offer a unique value proposition.
“ We can have spiritual progress; we can have material progress too in a very balanced way. We can have happiness, not only success. “
This could be one of the good reasons for us to look at some of these and make our own notes. There is a greater promise and potential for much larger perspectives in ancient Indian wisdom and much greater propensity to draw out of it and apply in a variety of situations .

Success depends greatly on the involvement of people in the organisations, willing to bring a change in tune with the global environment. Business practices will have to be changed and aligned with the growing needs and expectations of the stakeholders. The lure of using isolated techniques will not be enough for transforming the industrial world. To bring excellence, the integration of the Vedic studies with modern science and technological research is necessary .
