The Bhagavad-gita, though generally considered a religious manuscript, houses a wealth of knowledge available in its texts that are as practical today as they were five thousand years back, when they were spoken. These texts not only contain confidential spiritual knowledge, but also a plethora of effective solutions to the everyday problems of the modern man.
In October 2006, the Times published an article by the title “Corporate America Swears by the Gita”. This is not a surprising phenomenon. In this age where there is a prominent desire to amass wealth; many corporate leaders renounce the need for personal balance and inner fulfillment. The Bhagavad-gita helps resolve just this. It helps make introspection, continuous learning and inquiry an essential part of human life. It enables us to put purpose before the self. This is absolutely essential for a leader of any kind today.
