Description

About the Book:

THE YOGIC MANAGER is a business novel that retells the ancient Sanskrit epic, the Mahabharata. The monumental war of Kurukshetra has been recreated in the business world at a consulting firm called Characterra Consulting. The protagonist Arjun Atmanand faces a crisis when his conscience clashes with the instructions of his boss and Characterra’s founder, Raja Sahamkar. To help him with his crisis, Arjun receives advice from Yogi, a being with supernatural powers. Arjun learns Yoga and Vedanta from Yogi, which he later uses to build a bridge between Yoga-Vedanta and Management.

By reading and studying this book, you will:

  • Start to challenge conventional ways of thinking about business and gain a new, holistic perspective of Management
  • Learn the principles and framework of Yogic Management, which you can then immediately apply to your work
  • Become a more productive knowledge worker by learning how to control and channel the most powerful instrument of knowledge work – the mind
  • Gain practical advice on how to build physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual strength
  • Live a balanced and purposeful life by going through the four phases prescribed in Yoga-Vedanta
  • Join the evolution of Management – a movement that will elevate the human condition and restore harmony to an imbalanced planet

This book is a must read for any student or professional. No matter what you do, it will make you think and give you a new perspective to management in this knowledge age. At first I assumed that the contents would be difficult for my understanding, but when I started the book, I just could not stop! I literally got cold chills reading it. I loved every framework, table and diagram in this book. They looked intimidating, but were actually quite simple and I was amazed once I understood them. I literally gasped when I read the Purposeful Life Framework. Combining so many ancient concepts into one chart and table is absolutely brilliant. I cannot imagine how much research and thought must have been put in to synthesize the frameworks and principles of yogic management. They should find their way into business schools sooner. The insights and ideas shared in this book present a much needed fresh approach to management, which balances profit with principles. The ethical dilemma that Arjun faces is one that people working in the corporate world will be able to relate to. The Q&A format used between Arjun and Raja, and between Arjun and Yogi, really makes you think and helps in understanding the ideas presented. I also like the fact that the author has referenced each section from the ancient Sanskrit texts that he has incorporated into the novel. These days, many authors reuse ancient teachings and pass them off as their own. I would recommend this book to any person who wants success everyday! It will tell you that success and happiness are not meant for any one phase in life, but are for every day of your life
