Philosophy, Yoga, and Integral Education for self-management

Reimagining and Refashioning Integral Management - Tusar Nath Mohapatra, Savitri Era Learning Forum (SELF), Ghaziabad 


The function of Management in the present complex world cannot be overemphasized. The role of ethics in Management, especially in the Indian context, is even more profound. Despite a vast amount of work in this area, repetition and exaggeration have become commonplace, so much so that certain concepts without validity have taken root. This paper ventures to provide an alternative understanding of human psychology drawn from the philosophical insights of Sri Aurobindo, with significant implications for Management education and practice. While surveying the history of ideas in modern civilization, Sri Aurobindo's ontological formulations appear to have an edge, which unfortunately have not received much attention. Moreover, there is perceptible resistance from various interest groups and dominant philosophies, especially in the context of the prevailing political situation. This paper uses select concepts from Sri Aurobindo's philosophy to point out how radically our thinking should change. His stress on personal development through Yoga and integral education constitutes a task in the domain of self-management. Accommodating these facets into management education as well as practice is a challenge that needs to be taken up by interested individuals and institutions in right earnest.
