Question @ IMF Leadership


It is really shameful that the IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been accused of assaulting a maid in a luxury New York City hotel. He has been denied a bail and has been sent to a jail. This act has sent shock-waves throughout the world. He was a man who was in charge of overseeing the world economy and was tipped to be France’s next President. His arrest and subsequent jail is also extremely embarrassing for the IMF. Apart from dealing with a leadership crisis the IMF is now facing serious questions about whether it let Strauss-Kahn off too lightly in 2008 after he was caught in an extra-marital affair with an economist who was his subordinate. There are persistent rumors afloat inside the IMF that he often made unwanted sexual advances to other women during his tenure with IMF. 

Why is it that many nationally and internationally reputed leaders are involved in sex scandals? We have been witnessing many such cases. It is found that many leaders have unfulfilled sexual life and their unfulfilled sexual desires have led to many kinds of perversions. It seems an unfulfilled sex life has something to do with stress, and the stressed life also has something to do with unfulfilled sex life. They seem to have some intricate connection. All the repressions and suppressions of emotions eventually surface in some kind of psychosomatic diseases. And the true art of expression is never going to be possible unless all kinds of suppressions and repressions are dissolved. The contentment of sex is a prerequisite for a better leadership and inspiring leadership. Leadership is a far bigger responsibility. It is a far bigger vision. It is the greatest art of leading a team and leading a nation. It is a right action for the betterment of the nation and also for the betterment of the people. Peter Drucker, the Management Guru, says, “Leadership means doing right things”. 

Lust and love are in some way intricately connected. Love in its lover form is called sex, and sex in its higher form is called love. It is the same energy and it can be transformed. And the same love can be further transformed into compassion. We can move from lust to love, and we can also move from sex to supreme consciousness. Enlightened Leadership aims towards creating bliss, love, and compassion. It is aiming towards awakening one’s consciousness and awareness, and leading with love and compassion. The lowest form of the energy is at the “Muladhara” (Root Chakra) and the highest form of the same energy is at the “Sahasrara” (Crown Chakra). And the whole art of moving this energy from the Root Chakra to the Crown Chakra is called the “Kundalini Yoga.

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…

Jai Jai Ganesha !!

Ganesha does not mean only the wall portrait of Ganesha. Ganesha does not mean only the idol of Ganesha. But Ganesha means much more and beyond. Shiva and Parvati do not mean only the wall portraits of Shiva and Parvati. Shiva and Parvati do not mean only the idols of Shiva and Parvati. They mean much more and beyond. There has to be a far deeper meaning to these mythological stories. Let us explore and uncover the myth hidden in these stories.
There are four dimensions to the existence. The first two dimensions are existence and non-existence. Matter is existing and non-matter is non-existing. We can perceive matter but we can not perceive the non-matter. We can perceive the body but we can not perceive the soul. The first two dimensions of the perceivable matter are Physics and Metaphysics. We can see the physical matter but we can not see the metaphysical matter. We can touch and feel the physical matter. But we can not perceive the subatomic and metaphysical world of matter exactl…

Happy Guru Nanak Jayanti !!

Today is the day of the “Guru”. Guru Nanak Dev was the founder of the Sikh faith. There is a legend behind his becoming a great Guru. He was once working for a merchant. And while counting numbers he made a small mistake. I strongly feel that such mistake should happen in everybody’s life. He was counting numbers. He was supposed to count up to twelve (12) and by mistake he counted up to thirteen (13). The moment he counted this number thirteen there was a sudden flash of a thunder in his whole being. It was a miraculous moment of his life. In fact divinity descended in him in that very moment. And at the same time, in that very moment, he ascended to divinity. In that very moment everything in his life has changed forever. 
In the Eastern tradition the word “Tera” means the “Supreme”. It simply means “Yours” and not “Mine”. The word “Tera” means everything is yours (that of God) and nothing is mine. Now, the world of me and mine has come to an end for the first time. Unless ‘my’ worl…
