Question @ IMF Leadership


It is really shameful that the IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been accused of assaulting a maid in a luxury New York City hotel. He has been denied a bail and has been sent to a jail. This act has sent shock-waves throughout the world. He was a man who was in charge of overseeing the world economy and was tipped to be France’s next President. His arrest and subsequent jail is also extremely embarrassing for the IMF. Apart from dealing with a leadership crisis the IMF is now facing serious questions about whether it let Strauss-Kahn off too lightly in 2008 after he was caught in an extra-marital affair with an economist who was his subordinate. There are persistent rumors afloat inside the IMF that he often made unwanted sexual advances to other women during his tenure with IMF. 

Why is it that many nationally and internationally reputed leaders are involved in sex scandals? We have been witnessing many such cases. It is found that many leaders have unfulfilled sexual life and their unfulfilled sexual desires have led to many kinds of perversions. It seems an unfulfilled sex life has something to do with stress, and the stressed life also has something to do with unfulfilled sex life. They seem to have some intricate connection. All the repressions and suppressions of emotions eventually surface in some kind of psychosomatic diseases. And the true art of expression is never going to be possible unless all kinds of suppressions and repressions are dissolved. The contentment of sex is a prerequisite for a better leadership and inspiring leadership. Leadership is a far bigger responsibility. It is a far bigger vision. It is the greatest art of leading a team and leading a nation. It is a right action for the betterment of the nation and also for the betterment of the people. Peter Drucker, the Management Guru, says, “Leadership means doing right things”. 

Lust and love are in some way intricately connected. Love in its lover form is called sex, and sex in its higher form is called love. It is the same energy and it can be transformed. And the same love can be further transformed into compassion. We can move from lust to love, and we can also move from sex to supreme consciousness. Enlightened Leadership aims towards creating bliss, love, and compassion. It is aiming towards awakening one’s consciousness and awareness, and leading with love and compassion. The lowest form of the energy is at the “Muladhara” (Root Chakra) and the highest form of the same energy is at the “Sahasrara” (Crown Chakra). And the whole art of moving this energy from the Root Chakra to the Crown Chakra is called the “Kundalini Yoga.

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…

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 …

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 …
