Vedanta @Work - A Live and Interactive Program

Vedanta @Work is a program that helps professionals, in both corporate and entrepreneurial environments, learn and apply the principles of Vedanta in their work situations. The deep insights of the Bhagavad Gita are universal in context and timeless in their relevance. However, in recent history, entire generations have missed receiving this wisdom. Today, our lives have become far more complex. The demands on our time have multiplied. While we need the anchoring and the guidance of our scriptures, it seems practical to learn this only at the end of our careers, once we have retired. The sad irony is that this knowledge can actually make a dramatic difference to our professional success, here and now. Vedanta represents the ethical, existential, metaphysical, philosophical, sociological and behavioral aspects of our scriptures. Objective of this course is to bring out the uplifting, powerful, transformational aspects of Vedanta as it relates to our work. There are many fundamental questions that professionals ask themselves in the course of their careers. Please see the curriculum below for details!
