Vedic Management - 5 Steps to Holistic Success (Part 2)

Rule 3
यो ह वै प्रतिष्ठाम वेद प्रति ह तिष्ठत्यस्मिंश्च लोके
The one who understands Pratishthaa (reputation) becomes Pratishtha (reputed) in its race and also in this world. Upanishad says, “Chakshu (eyes) are the reputation.”
To understand it comprehensively, the meaning of the Chakshu needs to be understood. The sense of vision is responsible for seeing things clearly and understands the material in all the dimensions. Vision helps us to weigh the possibilities and also help in judging potential threats. It helps us to place ourselves in a secure and stable position.
Your vision is the repute of your organization
The vision is an ultimate destiny of an organization. It could be divided in two parts for an easy understanding,
  • Organizational goal
  • Analytical abilities
Organizational Goal
It is the intimate desire to materialize the futuristic approach. Without a goal, any organization would behave like a small boat lost in the pacific. It works like a guiding star, and also a gauge. It is essential that the vision should not be a mere tool of self amusement. Vision of your organization should be multidimensional. It should revolve around the sense of uplifting one and all. The vision of your organization should not be motivated out of greed, but it should be an effort to motivate the mass for a revolution. And the organizational goal should be complemented by achieving short term targets. And one should make sure to share the organizational vision with each and every part of it, living, or non living. It generates the required passion and also works as a yardstick whenever you lose focus.
Analytical Abilities
Vision also includes the analytical abilities of your organization. One should always concentrate over the potential threats, own possessions, lacking skills, and futuristic possibilities. The one who possesses the calculative decision making power never lose the battle of fierce competition.
Veda says, “The one who possesses the clear vision, establishes itself amongst the most reputed company.”

Rule 4
यो ह वै संपद वेद संहास्मै कामाः पद्यन्ते
The one who acknowledges the Sampad (prosperity) persuades Sampad (opulence) not only in his race but the world over. Upanishad says, “Shrotra (sense of hearing) is Sampad (prosperity).
Our sense of hearing enables us to perceive the science and also help us to understand it in its specialized form. When we undertake any action after the complete perception of the matter, it always reaps a sweet fruit.
Comprehensive feedback is the Prosperity of your Organization
When we are working at a level where we do not seek anything lesser than perfection, there always remain a room for shortcomings. This is something that we tend to ignore considering it a small thing or could be fixed later attitude. ‘Feedback’ is like a resonance. The kind of a sound we make comes back to us. It helps us to understand the kind of vibes our organization is generating. Wise people say, “Silence is Gold.” By realizing your dream, you have already made an impact or sent percussion around, feedback is to keep silence and listen to your own conscience.
Feedback is the key. It is like a meditation. One should remain all ears to the finer details. Be it the customer, your first line managers, or your security guard. A good advice can flow from any corner. It always would help you to be active than being reactive. Not that every advice would be as important, but the reaction would reach you only if you lend your ears. Feedback should never be taken as a criticism, but it should always be used as a door for the improvement. An organization should inculcate the habit of procuring feedback at every level. Following are few examples
  • Service feedback
  • Managerial feedback
  • Communicative feedback
  • Personal feedback
After getting the appropriate advices let your conscience decide the room for the improvement.
Veda says, “In the deepest of your silence, you hear the speech of your mind.”
Rule 5
यो ह वा आयतनम वेद आयतनम ह स्वानाम भवति
The one who knows the Ayatana (the shelter/source) becomes the Ayatana (the source) for its own race. Upanishad says, “Definitely the Mana (Mind) is the Ayatana(The source/ Shelter).”
The mind is the source of all the actions. And our senses are like servant to our mind. Whatever subject is perceived by our senses is brought to the amusement of the mind. The mind controls our deeds. The mind is such a strong force in our body that we keep on dancing on its tunes. It never allows us to focus. The one, who knows the potential of the mind, becomes the source of joy, happiness, and fulfillment.
Your determination is the Source of your Fulfillment
If you want to live a fulfilled life, it is essential to focus on your mind. The mind is the source of your courage. Mind is the ultimate creator and destroyer too. Once the mind is in absolute form of stability, it can reap anything you want. It is the most difficult entity to handle in this world. Mind is such a minute entity that it can make you travel even to the unknown worlds. It takes you to the places where you never have been to. But one has to ensure, where you want to be? If you will not decide, then mind would do it for you. And mind has a fascination towards the subjects that are not meant for you. It keeps you confused. It is an obvious block created by that supreme force. Had this block not been there, everybody would become successful. But, there are only few, who knew their mind and rode over the ladder of eternal success.
Keep your mind in your control. Let your conscious- the soul be the guide to your mind. Never allow it to go to the ‘RIGHT’ or to the ‘LEFT’, but stay focused. Arjuna could hit the bird’s eye, “because he saw only the eye.”
Veda says, “The one who knows his source become the resource in his own race.”
