Lessons From Bhagvat Gita

  1. 1. Lessons from Bhagavadgita
  2. 2. The setting of the Gita  The setting of the Gita is symbolic of the battlefield of life, but more importantly, it is symbolic of the battlefield within all of us.  Our life is a constant turmoil between positive and negative impulses, between the pleasant and the better, between our likes and dislikes, between the good and the bad.
  3. 3. In-action to Action.  Krishna’s response to the despondency of Arjuna on the battlefield wad that “This is not the behavior of a great warrior.”  Management Lesson: 5. Action is required in life. 7. Work with Proactivity. 9. Work with Positive actions as our current actions define our future.
  4. 4. Anger Management  Modern psychoanalysis has revealed that anger is a manifestation of repressed and suppressed desires.  Modern medicine has also established the damage to internal physiology caused by excessive anger.  In the fit of anger, we are confused and issues that have no bearing on the circumstance are brought in only to add further confusion.  In such a confusion, we forget many things: the purpose of life, our responsibilities, our goals, and most importantly, peaceful co-existence with fellow human beings.
  5. 5. Work Culture: Bhagwat Gita speaks of 2 types of work cultures – Daivi Sampat and Asuri Sampat. Daivi work culture ‐ involves fearlessness, purity, self‐control, sacrifice, straightforwardness, self-denial, calmness, absence of fault‐finding, absence of greed, gentleness, modesty, absence of envy and pride.
