Puducherry has grown considerably since its colonial past, and its present day glory lies with the saint philosopher Aurobindo Ghosh, who founded his ashram here. Sri Aurobindo was a freedom fighter and in 1907 was considered the 'most dangerous man' by the British… Situated in the heart of the White Town the Ashram has its own appeal. This was where Sri Aurobindo, the Mother and their immediate followers actually lived surrounded in time by a dedicated community of people from different parts of India.
It is now dominated by a Samadhi that is kept in a state of pristine freshness not just by the intricate floral decorations that are placed over the marble surface, but by the air of serene contemplation that so many of the followers of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother bring to their understanding of the message of ‘integral consciousness’. Put simply, it is a state of being that each person can and should aspire to so that human beings can evolve to a higher state of self realisation.

Second, integration of the four-fold being of the Collectivity or the Organisation which is the aim of Organisational Development. Third, integration of the individual goals with organisational goal, which is the aim of work-life balance. Fourth, attunement of the four-fold being of the organisation with the laws of universal Nature, which is the aim of corporate sustainability. The main objective of this blog is to explore this four-fold integration and its practical implications for management and human development.
