Poojya Swamiji conducting a one day workshop on "Enlightened Leadership" - Delhi 2013
All our cultural values are aimed at bestowing the three-fold enrichment – characteral might, behavioural majesty and performancial excellence. By their very nature, these are ever applicable to one and all alike. To blend ‘subject values’ with ‘object education’ thus becomes the goal before us. Distinct from external, material, professional and technical knowledge, which comes under ‘object knowledge’, the ‘subject knowledge’ holds the potential to enrich and empower the mind, intelligence and heart.

With all the academic and professional knowledge you have, if you do not get an opportunity to use it and gain experience, of what use will it all be? It is the employer who takes you and assigns a job for you. By this, he helps to enhance your merits, which always remain your personal possession. Only the external, gross productivity goes to the society. The inner, subtle enrichment remains yours. Should you not be grateful to the employer then? Gratefulness enriches any mind. It forges expansion.

Our National Cultural Values have the sole object of enriching and empowering inner human constituents, namely mind, intelligence and heart. As an individual thinks of himself, so should he be persuaded to think of others around. One’s thoughts, feelings and aspirations should not remain individualistic alone. Everytime and in everything alike, they have to be inclusive, comprehensive.

Overall welfare of any society rests upon ethically conducted business. Business ethics demands that its functionaries have to elevate their vision from capturing the market and enhancing their income, to the sublime height of sharing the efforts to ameliorate societal, national and global life.
