All work/Karma to manifest divinity, hence these must be pure, good, honest and sincere. Indian philosophy also teaches to perform every work without having any attachment to result, because results do not fall under the jurisdiction of a doer.

Such thinking and understanding will change the whole attitude. Now the results will become a PRASAD-gratitude – coming from the God himself. You can now accept the result with open mind without apprehensions-just as you accept members into Karma Yoga.

Passion Leads To Excellence

When your hobby becomes your profession and passion becomes your profession. You will be able to lead up to excellence in the life. Satisfaction, pleasure, joy and love will be the outcome of following passion. Following your passion for years, you will surely become something one day. 

Ends Do Not Justify Means:

Process to achieve ends what you earn does not tell how you earn. While earning a profit a business man should be careful that he follows the ethics & does not harm to the rights to stakeholders.

Fine Blending Between Spiritualism & Materialism – India maintains a balance between both spiritualism & materialism it emphases one can earn profit, make money but not at the cost of others. Business should be managed ethically fulfilling the responsibilities to all the stakeholders who are directly or indirectly associated with business & who are part of the society.

• The state must come before the company, and the company before the self.

• The Indian philosophy urges managers and individuals to perform work with the spirit of Yajna (sacrifice).

• Sacrificing the minor gains for the welfare and benefit of the society at large.
