This book shows how the Bhagavad Gītā (part of the great Indian epic — the Mahābhārata) can be approached as a powerful tool for change management and as a catalyst for organizational transformation. It presents time-tested leadership strategies drawn from the Bhagavad Gītā that are relevant for today’s leaders. This book focuses on how to harmonize the needs of the individual with the needs of society, and by extension, how to harmonize the needs of employees and the organization. It employs an inside-out leadership development approach based on Self-knowledge and Self-mastery, the two highly important areas for practicing effective Self-leadership. The Gītā is a non-sectarian spiritual text with a universal message for living a life of meaning, purpose, and contribution and for leading from our authentic self. It shows how to manage oneself, as a necessary prelude to leading others. Students and organizational leaders will learn to integrate leadership function more effectively into all aspects at the individual, team, and institutional level.

The Bhagavad Gita: The Song of God Retold in Simplified English is the latest title in the Essential Wisdom Library. This unique edition of the timeless epic is designed to be accessible for readers without any prior experience of Hinduism. Not simply a translation of the original, Viljoen has simplified and restated the Gita’s complex ideas, so that a first-time reader can fully appreciate the scope and beauty of this magnificent Indian classic. Written in concise, modern language the retelling vividly captures the power and depth of the original work. Part of the Mahabharata, the Gita is a dialogue between Prince Arjuna and Lord Krishna. Its verses contain some of the key ideas of Hindu philosophy—Dharma, Moksha, and various yogic practices. Originally written well over a thousand years ago, the Gita has proven to be a timeless source of wisdom, inspiring philosophers and revolutionaries alike in the millennia since it was written. In addition to the retelling of the text, this edition includes a character list, a glossary of important terms, and chapters exploring the back-story from the Mahabharata and the impact and meaning of the Bhagavad Gita itself. The Bhagavad Gita is an approachable way for today’s readers to engage with one of history's richest spiritual epics.

Inner Wholeness of Mind: The Key to Spiritual Wisdom, a Life Fully Lived, Sustainable Communities, and Global Peace India’s Bhagavad-Gita (the Lord’s Song) is a seminal work illuminating our path to inner wholeness of mind, spiritual wisdom, and a life fully lived. It begins as Arjuna, a handsome prince and the best archer of his time, must choose between two different courses of action and their equally unsatisfactory consequences. Either he causes the deaths of a great many kinsmen by fighting to win back his stolen kingdom, or he lets evil prevail by refusing to fight. Faced with the same heart-wrenching dilemma today, which path would we choose and why? Bewildered, Arjuna refuses to fight and asks Lord Krishna, his best friend and charioteer, to advise him. Lord Krishna begins by admonishing him to fight the unrighteous in order to protect the righteous. Krishna goes on to tell Arjuna why his grief over the impending deaths of allies and adversaries alike is misplaced and, in any case, a waste of time. Finally, Krishna describes how Arjuna and the rest of us can do what is right in our lives and achieve lasting happiness. The key is cultivating a mental state of union with the part of ourselves that neither lives nor dies and yet lends each of us the conscious awareness needed to perceive, think, act, and live in this world. In Nectar of the Eternal, author Eric Hutchins brings together the work of several renowned scholars including Mahatma Gandhi, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Vladimir Antonov, Eknath Easwaran, and Sir Charles Wilkins (the first to translate the Bhagavad-Gita into English in 1785). Their translations of thirty-eight key verses along with the author’s five decades of deep, introspective practice provide depth and clarity regarding how we may achieve more joyful lives, better enrich the lives of others, and help build sustainable communities and a peaceful world.

Drawing upon the timeless wisdom of the Bhagavad Gītā, a philosophical-spiritual world classic, this professional book highlights the spiritual and moral dimensions of management using an inside-out leadership development approach. It interprets the Bhagavad Gītā’s teachings on the personality types and psychological makeup of managers and employees; self-knowledge and self-mastery; and the leadership concepts of vision, motivation, and empowerment. This book covers topics such as training of the mind, ethical leadership, communication, stress management, and corporate social responsibility (CSR). Collectively, the enclosed contributions provide managers with an enhanced outlook on management functions such as leading, planning, organizing, and controlling in today’s organizations, particularly those run by knowledge workers. Management research in the 20th century has mainly focused on the industrial paradigm characterized by a hierarchical structure of authority and responsibility with an individualistic focus on the personality of the manager. However, this traditional paradigm cannot solve many of the problems that confront leaders and mangers today. Recent studies have shown that values traditionally associated with spirituality—such as integrity, honesty, trust, kindness, caring, fairness, and humility—have a demonstrable effect on managerial effectiveness and success. Although traditionally interpreted as a religious-spiritual text, the Bhagavad Gītā teaches these values which can be extrapolated and applied to practical management lessons in today’s corporate boardrooms. Applying the text of the Bhagavad Gītā to the context of management, this book views the manager as an “enlightened sage” who operates from higher stance, guided by self-knowledge and self-mastery. It demonstrates how character is the key ingredient for effective management and leadership. This book is therefore applicable to all managers, from first-line to CEOs, in their management and leadership roles in organizations.
