Apply Vedanta Principles to Professional Life : Live Interactive Online Program

● Vedanta @Work program drives home the key Vedanta concepts that can make a dramatic difference to your professional success, here and now!

Vedanta represents the ethical, existential, metaphysical, philosophical, sociological and behavioural aspects of Sanatana Dharma. Vedanta@work is a program that helps professionals learn and apply the most powerful principles of Vedanta as it relates to work situations. The deep insights of the Bhagavad Gita are universal in context and timeless in their relevance. Yet we have lost this source of eternal wisdom through sheer decay and apathy. Today, our lives are more comfortable but far more complex. The demands on our time have multiplied. Vedanta provides anchoring and guidance to conquer. The idea that we will learn our scriptures after we retire is actually absurd and self-defeating. On the contrary, Vedanta is a force multiplier designed for the most active years of our life.

What You Will Learn

  • How do I crystallize a vision? For myself and the unit/organization I lead.

  • How ambitious can I be? Am I being realistic?

  • Is it possible to be successful while being honest?

  • How do I deal with 'difficult' colleagues and bosses?

  • How can I be more appreciated? And how do I respond when I am being disrespected or not appreciated?

  • How do I improve my performance at work? While maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

  • Should I be going back to college for another degree?

  • How can I multi-task more effectively?

  • How do I cope with the stress of expectations?

  • How do I balance competing with collaborating?

  • How should I make a career change?

  • How can I do a better job of hiring talent?

This program delivers the most vital principles and insights that can be applied day to day to take your career trajectory to the next level.

Specifically, we will talk about Purushartha, Ashrama, Dharma, Svabhava, Gunas, Svadharma, the Varna system, Karma, Buddhi, Manas, Chitta, Ahamkara, different types of Yoga and some other embedded concepts.
