Delhi Metro Rail Corporation gives its employees Bhagvad Gita instead of a procedural manual.
Anuj Dayal spokesman for the corporaton .
“It is a management text,” he said of the book, which is taken from the Mahabharata, an epic poem at the heart of Hindu philosophy. “It is the story of how to motivate an unmotivated person.”
The Bhagavad-Gita retells a battlefield dialogue between the god Krishna, disguised as a chariot driver, and Arjuna, a brave but demoralized king. Krishna convinces him that he must do his duty against all odds, and fight even what seems to be an unwinnable war.
I have heard many presentations of Gita .Have even read it cover to cover with good translation.I am amazed in my blindness and inability to see the important motivational message for the discouraged and the defeated.
Now i am convinced and would ask the great Monk and scholar of Vedant Swami Yogatmanand to elaborate and give a talk on this subject.
This subject is very timely and could be very nice new student welcoming talk as well as a graduating talk.
