  • May Lord Bless All……..This book is dedicated to my Rab, my soul, mom & dad and all my readers. Spirituality is the heart of all dedicated activities.
  • PREFACE “Ethics and religion must not stay at home when we go to work.”—Achille Silvestrini, Cardinal of the Roman Curia. My purpose of writing this book is to make people understand that the Spirituality, Ethics and Religion should not be confined to the temple, mosque or churches. These are the resources which should be utilized in a right manner in order to ease our life at work. This is the reason I have tried to show Hanuman Chalisa, Kabirji Ke Dohey and Holy Religious Signs from the management point of view. Our holy texts are full ofwisdom; this is my first attempt to mix spirituality with management. Folks, enjoy your work life, only then you can enjoy your personal life. This book is for all mankind - entrepreneurs, organizations, management students, employees, professionals and last but not the least- common man. “Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it.” —Syrus, Publilius So try to be wise…… :)

  • Chapter 1- HANUMAN CHALISA : FROM MANAGEMENT POINT OF VIEWShri Hanuman is a Hindu deity and an ardent devotee of Shri Rama. He is one ofthe dearest devotees of Shri Rama. He is a disciple of Shri Ram, whose story isdepicted in the Great Indian epic, The Ramayana. He is also known asMaruti, Pavanputra, Kesharinandan, Bajrang Bali and Anjaniputra.Our sacred texts are full of knowledge we can apply that knowledge in our day today life as well as in management arena. Here is my small effort to look hanumanchalisa from the management point of view. I have chosen hanuman chalisabecause no one on this planet will be so loyal and dedicated to his boss (Rama) likeHanumanji. So every employer will love to welcome an ardent employee likeHanumanji in his company.There are number of benefits for an organization if it recruits ardent employees likeHanumanji. The benefits are depicted below:a) Employees like Hanumanji will help control employee attrition level and henceit will help HR save the new employee recruitment cost.b) Company’s marketing strategies, secrets, accounts manipulation will be keptsecret with them (top level manager s and middle level managers). It won’t beleaked or shared with the competitors.c) Employees will be ready to work beyond working hours to complete thetask, etc.
  • “Tum Upkar Sugrivahi Keenha, Ram Miali Rajpad Deenha.”Hanumanji! You rendered a great service for Sugriva, It was you who unitedhim with Shri Ram and installed him on the Royal Throne.A dedicated employee is not only good for the company but also for the clientbecause an employee act as a bridge between the client and the company,benefiting both the client and the company.One can also learn one more thing from this couplet- Outsourcing, a strategicmanagement model. Shri Hanumanji helped Sugriva by uniting him with ShriRama. Shri Rama killed Raja Vali (brother of Sugriva) and installed Sugriva on themagnificent throne.This shows the benefits of Outsourcing, a strategic management model- Sugrivawas incapable of killing Raja Vali, for this reason he got the help of Shri Rama viaShri Hanumanji for killing Vali.If companies are incapable of producing or servicing in terms of better quality,then it is wise to get the job done from the third party (get the work outsourced)
  • Outsourcing will make your company focused on its core competence, making itmore competitive. It will also cut the unnecessary cost and enhance theefficiency of the company.“Outsourcing and globalization of manufacturing allows companies to reducecosts, benefits consumers with lower cost goods and services, causes economicexpansion that reduces unemployment, and increases productivity and jobcreation.” —Larry Elder, an American radio and television personality.“Globalization has changed us into a company that searches the world, not justto sell or to source, but to find intellectual capital - the world’s best talents andgreatest ideas.” —Jack Welch, the former chairman and CEO of General Electric. “Tumhare Bhajan Ramko Pavei. Janam Janam Ke Dukh Bisravei.”Oh Hanumanji! One can reach Shri Rama through devotion to you andbecomes free from suffering of several lives.An employee is the face of an organization; clients come through theemployees to the company. And clients get maximum satisfaction ifemployees provide them with good service or product.
  • Hence, it’s essential for employers to keep their employees happy because ahappy employee will keep your clients happy and happy clients will keep yourprofit and loss account happy.“A happy employee will lead directly to happy customers.” —Chris Hammond, a former left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball.“Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannotcompare with an ant filled with the love of God.” —Guru Nanak Devji, founder of the Sikh religion.
  • Chapter 2- KABIRJI KE DOHEY FROM MANAGEMENT OUTLOOKKabir (also known as ‘Kabira’) was a spiritual poet and saint of India. He was foundby a Muslim weaver named Niru and his wife, Nima, in Lehartara, situated in Varanasi(Banaras), India. He was born probably around the year 1398 AD; he lived for120 years and died in 1518.The name Kabir comes from Arabic Al-Kabir which means ‘The Great’ - one of the 99names of Allah (SWT). I have tried to relate Kabira’s spiritual couplets with themanagement philosophy.“Keson Kaha Bigadia, Je Moonde Sau Baar,Man Ko Kahe Na Moondiye, Jaamein Vishey Vikaar.”What damage have the hair done, you shave them hundred times,Why not shave your mind, there breed unrestricted numerous toxic thoughts.Here the hair stands for team leaders or managers and shave represents the reshuffleof team leaders or managers. Shaving of mind means – changing the managementstyle and leadership style where the entire problem begins.
  • It is better to change the organization’s management style and leadership style,instead of changing the team leaders or managers number of times.In Indian workplaces one will find authoritarian culture, autocratic leadership styleis widely practiced here, and not only low level employees, but also managers aretreated quite rudely.An organization should not forget the Equity, one of the fourteen principles ofmanagement developed by Henri Fayol. This 11th principle says managers orsupervisors should treat their subordinates in a kind and fair manner.There are many –American, Japanese, European and Chinese management stylesbut an organization should choose the management style which suits its workingculture.Employee friendly management style -The core of the management styleshould be employee friendly which will enable employees to have an easy access tothe management to present their problems, suggestions and recommendations.Employee friendly management style will not only create favorable workingatmosphere but also help an organization to retain employees.
  • “Management by objectives works if you first think through your objectives. Ninetypercent of the time you haven’t.” —Peter Drucker, a well known managementconsultant.“Control is not leadership; management is not leadership; leadership is leadership. Ifyou seek to lead, invest at least 50% of your time in leading yourself—your ownpurpose, ethics, principles, motivation, conduct. Invest at least 20% leading thosewith authority over you and 15% leading your peers.” —Dee Hock, the founder andformer CEO of the VISA credit card association.“You do not lead by hitting people over the head — that’s assault, not leadership.”—Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States.“If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall in the ditch.” —Jesus Christ (Peace Be UponHim), the founder of Christianity.“Four rules of leadership in a free legislative body: First, no matter how hard foughtthe issue, never get personal. Don’t say or do anything that may come back to hauntyou on another issue, another day.... Second, do your homework. You can’t leadwithout knowing what you’re talking about.... Third, the American legislativeprocess is one of give and take. Use your power as a leader to persuade, notintimidate.... Fourth, be considerate of the needs of your colleagues, even if they’reat the bottom of the totem pole....”—George Bush, Former President of the UnitedStates.“Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.” —Theodore Roosevelt.
  • “Gur Dhobi Sikh Kapda, Saboo Sirjan Har, Surti Sila Pur Dhoiye, Nikse Jyoti Aapar.”Guru is the washer man, disciple is the cloth, the name of God compared to thesoap, Wash the mind thoroughly clean (on base solid) to realize the glow oftruth. Trainer is your Guru (washer man) and trainee is the cloth (an employee-disciple).Trainer should invest his knowledge into employees and also help employeesenhance their professional skills by providing proper on the job training; this willboost their job performance. And the trainee (an employee) should put his heartinto training and development as this is the only period which helps himunderstand his job roles, improve his knowledge about the company, its productsor services and help hone his skills. The more you learn under training, the lessyou panic at work.“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacherdemonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” —William Arthur Ward, Americandedicated scholar, author, editor, pastor and teacher.“Learning without thought is labor lost. Thought without learning is intellectualdeath.” —Confucius.“Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower isnothing but cabbage with a college education.” —Mark Twain, an Americanauthor and humorist.
  • Chapter 3 - HOLY RELIGIOUS SIGNS FROM MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVEJainism - SwastikaThey say, Jack of all trades, master of none. An employee should be able toexecute all the jobs assigned to him. He should be multi tasking just like thefour hands of the Swastika.An organization should follow a management technique called - Job rotation inorder to produce multi tasking employees. It’s a management technique inwhich employees are moved to various jobs or departments in a plannedmanner.Be an all-rounder as you never know what problem life is going to toss atyou.
  • From the management point of view, when you look at the above given symbol,there are two sides white and black. Consider circle to be an organization, blackside to be employees and white side to be management of an organization. Now,that white dot in the black side of the circle is nothing but love, respect for themanagement in the hearts of the employees. And black dot in the white side ofthe circle is nothing but love, respect for the employees in the hearts of themanagement. An organization with such kind of working atmosphere will besuccessful in the long-term as well as short-term as this kind of workingphilosophy will create harmony in the organizationbetween employees and management.Live in each other’s heart, which is the purest place of divinity.
  • Thoughts for refreshment of your spirits:Thoughts on work:You are Krishna and the work is Radha,You are the lover and the work is your love.You are the flower and the fragrance is your work.You are the knowledge and the wisdom is your work.You are Shiv and the Shakti is your work.You are incomplete without work and the work is incomplete without you.(Ardhnarishwar)Thoughts on Spirituality:When we were born (birth is Brahma) we cried that voice was Saraswati.The time between our birth and death is Vishnu; hence, we require Laxmi(money) right from our birth till our death.When we will die (death is Shiva) we will be turned into ashes/ earth (Parvati)Hence, Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh are the process of birth, life and death. AndSaraswati, Laxmi and Parvati are the means.Our Lord is one. Brahma (Creator), Vishnu (Sustainer), Mahesh (Destroyer) is theattributes of one Lord. It’s just like three roles played by the same individual.We all are Spirits, the part of Supreme Spirit.
