Leadership of New Millennium !!


Congratulations, President Barack Obama !! This is what you deserve from the people around the world who love peace and who condemn terrorism. The whole credit always goes to the Leader and his brave Team. Both deserve attention and respect from the entire world. Good job done !! The whole team under him deserve kudos for the end of Osama Bin Laden. Barack Obama truly deserved the Nobel Prize conferred on him. This is only a beginning of an end of terrorism. And of course, a very important beginning. Only 40 minutes and 40 commandos and the whole job got done so well. What a feat? What an achievement? This goes without saying that what President Bush couldn’t do, President Obama could do. This is the differentiation. This is what is called the leadership with a difference. This is the leadership edge. There are two kinds of leaders. One, the leader who demands respect. Two, the leader who commands respect. The brave President Obama falls in the category of leaders who command respect. This type of leadership creates a pull factor and it does not believe in the push factor. This is what is called a charisma. The whole of USA must be celebrating this victory. And why not?

In India we celebrate the festival of Dussehra in memory of the event of “Ravana” being killed by “Rama”. This festival is being celebrated in India as a metaphor for the victory of the “Good” over “Evil”. And this good and evil is there in every human being in some form or the other. And to me, metaphorically, “Rama” means an enlightened “Ravana”, and “Ravana” means an unenlightened “Rama”. They are two sides of the same coin. They are two polarities of the same phenomenon. And the path to “Enlightenment” is a journey of moving from one end of the polarity to the other end of the polarity. And in the experience of “Oneness” all the polarities are dissolved.

All the peace loving people and all those who condemn violence and terrorism around the world must celebrate this victory. This is an important achievement and President Barack Obama deserves a second term on this account. Indian Leadership should take note of this important and positive development in the history of positive efforts in eradicating terrorism, and learn to take such brave decisions to prove the leadership that commands respect and deserves respect. USA has been very successful in getting their most wanted. What about India getting her most wanted?

Emotional Quotient and Spiritual Quotient

Let us talk of the whole structure of our being. At the periphery of the being are our thoughts. This layer is of positive thoughts and negative thoughts. This is the mind of the being. This is an intellectual layer of the being. This layer can be purified through mindfulness and awareness. This layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Intellectual Quotient (IQ) of the being.
There is a layer below the intellectual layer. A layer below this is called the emotional layer. This is the heart of the being. This layer has negative emotions and positive emotions. And this layer can also be purified through mindfulness and awareness. The energy at this layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Emotional Quotient (EQ) of the being.
Emotions, thoughts, and actions are not three different things. They are three different forms of the same energy. The emotions are moving in the heart. The though…

A Mathematical Expression of Enlightened Leadership

I was just wondering if Enlightened Leadership can really be expressed by way of a mathematical expression. An object is a subset of a subject. There is no reason why it can not be expressed. There has to be a way to express it mathematically. The whole objective reality can be expressed mathematically. I really do not find a problem anywhere. 
There are two dimensions to the existence. One is a horizontal dimension that exists in time. The whole of history, Itihasas, and the Puranas are part of it. And all these are full of symbolic and non-symbolic expressions. The other is a vertical dimension which does not exist in time. No matter we do what, this can never be expressed in terms of mathematics. This can be expressed only by way of metaphors. The Vedas and Upanishads are expressions of this timeless dimension. 
It is utterly wrong to say that the door of the divine does not exist for a person who thinks in terms of mathematics. No, existence does not behave it that way. There has…

The Mahabharata - In a Nutshell

There are three great characters in the Mahabharata. All the other characters are just by-products of these three characters. Duryodhana, Arjuna, and Krishna are these three main and great characters. To me, Duryodhana represents the Unconscious. He is a metaphor for the Unconscious. Arjuna represents the Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Conscious. And Krishna represents the Supreme Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Supreme Conscious. He is representing the Supreme Consciousness. When the ray of the Supreme Consciousness passes through the prism of the mind, the prism of the mind manifests the Supreme Consciousness, as the Consciousness and the Unconsciousness.
To make things simple, let us understand this by way of an example. Let us suppose that the Unconsciousness is like darkness and the Consciousness is like the light. And the one that joins these two and still remains beyond is called the Supreme Consciousness. According to the psychologists the Unconsciousness is far far b…
