The Prasanna Trust family ushered in the New Year across the country, with many Prasannites conducting various programs and reaching out to hundreds of people.

Swamiji conducted programs for All India Builders Association and Hindustan Petroleum in the month of January. Affectionately termed the 'Corporate Guru' Swamiji is well known for his ability to apply the ancient spiritual paradigms to the modern context.

How can we learn to be leaders in an increasingly competitive corporate world? Be detached. When you learn to place success and failure as mere polarities of each other, you transcend both. Such transcendence brings detachment: whether I succeed or fail, my duty I must do. Detachment brings with it objectivity, which is crucial when taking tough decisions in the corporate world. Detachment helps you see the bigger picture, uncolored by personal sentiment.

It is the Ego which claims all for itself. It creates an identity called 'I' veiling your true 'self'. This 'I' creates the illusion of an existence separate from the Supreme Being. And it claims all actions, both success and failure, for itself. That means it attaches a setback in the workplace to our very nature, taking away our self worth when we fail to finish a task or meet a deadline. Similarly, it attaches success to our nature, telling us we are worth something because we accomplished what we set out to do. So it tells us, we are worthless when we fail and wonderful if we succeed. Thus the Ego attracts unhappiness and colors our world views.

This 'I' is creates boundaries. It takes us away from the interconnectedness of all things. It fails to see the inherent strength and beauty within all beings and wants to ‘be the best’ at everything. While a competitive spirit is a good thing, ruthless competition can destroy a team. Great leaders unite resources and talent. They do not divide out of fear of being replaced in their jobs.
