Leadership of New Millennium !!


Congratulations, President Barack Obama !! This is what you deserve from the people around the world who love peace and who condemn terrorism. The whole credit always goes to the Leader and his brave Team. Both deserve attention and respect from the entire world. Good job done !! The whole team under him deserve kudos for the end of Osama Bin Laden. Barack Obama truly deserved the Nobel Prize conferred on him. This is only a beginning of an end of terrorism. And of course, a very important beginning. Only 40 minutes and 40 commandos and the whole job got done so well. What a feat? What an achievement? This goes without saying that what President Bush couldn’t do, President Obama could do. This is the differentiation. This is what is called the leadership with a difference. This is the leadership edge. There are two kinds of leaders. One, the leader who demands respect. Two, the leader who commands respect. The brave President Obama falls in the category of leaders who command respect. This type of leadership creates a pull factor and it does not believe in the push factor. This is what is called a charisma. The whole of USA must be celebrating this victory. And why not?

In India we celebrate the festival of Dussehra in memory of the event of “Ravana” being killed by “Rama”. This festival is being celebrated in India as a metaphor for the victory of the “Good” over “Evil”. And this good and evil is there in every human being in some form or the other. And to me, metaphorically, “Rama” means an enlightened “Ravana”, and “Ravana” means an unenlightened “Rama”. They are two sides of the same coin. They are two polarities of the same phenomenon. And the path to “Enlightenment” is a journey of moving from one end of the polarity to the other end of the polarity. And in the experience of “Oneness” all the polarities are dissolved.

All the peace loving people and all those who condemn violence and terrorism around the world must celebrate this victory. This is an important achievement and President Barack Obama deserves a second term on this account. Indian Leadership should take note of this important and positive development in the history of positive efforts in eradicating terrorism, and learn to take such brave decisions to prove the leadership that commands respect and deserves respect. USA has been very successful in getting their most wanted. What about India getting her most wanted?

The Mahabharata - In a Nutshell

There are three great characters in the Mahabharata. All the other characters are just by-products of these three characters. Duryodhana, Arjuna, and Krishna are these three main and great characters. To me, Duryodhana represents the Unconscious. He is a metaphor for the Unconscious. Arjuna represents the Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Conscious. And Krishna represents the Supreme Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Supreme Conscious. He is representing the Supreme Consciousness. When the ray of the Supreme Consciousness passes through the prism of the mind, the prism of the mind manifests the Supreme Consciousness into the Consciousness and the Unconsciousness.

To make things simple, let us understand this by way of an example. Let us suppose that the Unconsciousness is like darkness and the Consciousness is like the light. And the one that joins these two and still remains beyond is called the Supreme Consciousness. According to the psychologists the Unconsciousness is far far …

Glass, Half Full or Half Empty

The reality exists and we all perceive the reality. What is true reality? Nobody can give the exact answer. Each person has his own reality. And, therefore, each person has his own expression. The reality is one but the perceptions could be many. The reality is one but the expressions could be many. Every one perceives reality in his own way. Every observer observes reality is his own way. Every perception is relative to the one who is perceiving. Every observation is relative to the observer. The one who is perceiving and the perception are not two different things. The observer and the observed are not two different things.


Is the glass half full or half empty? This is a common phrase that we use to know an individual’s worldview. This is a common phrase that we use to know an individual’s point of view. In the above situation, every individual’s worldview could be different. One may argue and say that the glass is half full and this expression may indicate optimism. And another ma…

A Mathematical Expression of Enlightened Leadership

I was just wondering if Enlightened Leadership can really be expressed by way of a mathematical expression. An object is a subset of the subject. There is no reason why it can not be expressed. There has to be a way to express it mathematically. The whole objective reality can be expressed mathematically. I really do not find a problem anywhere.

There are two dimensions to the existence. One is a horizontal dimension that exists in time. The whole of history, Itihasas, and the Puranas are part of it. And all these are full of symbolic and non-symbolic expressions. The other is a vertical dimension which does not exist in time. No matter we do what, this can never be expressed in terms of mathematics. This can be expressed only by way of metaphors. The Vedas and Upanishads are expressions of this timeless dimension.

It is utterly wrong to say that the door of the divine does not exist for a person who thinks in terms of mathematics. No, existence does not behave it that way. There has …
