Application of values for improving corporate management has received much attention in recent times. At the root of all concepts of management lies the all-pervasive mind in its transcendence. A study of the Sastras reveals that the ancient texts contain a great insight into the working of the human mind and how to go beyond its conflicting interests and functions.

The crucial difference between Indian thought and Western thinking is that our philosophy does not divide reality into pairs of opposites. It transcends them. It is only at this level that the conflicts bedeviling management today can be overcome. Ancient wisdom consisting of Indian thought appears to be the ultimate dialectic to achieve managerial excellence.

In this book is presented an overview of how management can benefit from the application of the principles of philosophical perceptions. The Anugraha Sandesa of His Holiness at the beginning sums up succinctly the values of management as recognised by our ancient texts.

In ‘Management in the Light of Vedanta,’ Swami Dayananda approaches it as a two-fold issue--Personal Management and Situation Management. Dr. M. B. Athreja in ‘Ancient Wisdom for Human Resource Management’ integrates the principles of varnasrama dharma with the modern concepts. ‘Sastraic Views for Management’ bj’ V K Sharma interprets the management qualities in terms of the well-known gunas--tamas, rajas and sattva.

Government administration as depicted in Kautilya’s Arthasastra, with minor modifications of time and place, is suitable for the modern days also. This has been highlighted in a revealing article by Uday V Koppikar.

Stress is an inevitable accompaniment of management and has to be overcome. A couple of articles included here throw hints on ways to tackle this problem through yoga and other exercises.
