Kusgaon : Faculty Development Programme (FDP) on “Redefine Yourself - Management Lessons from Bhagavad Gita” jointly organized by Sinhgad Institute of Business Administration and Computer Applications (SIBACA) & N. B. Navale College of Commers & Science (NBNCOCS), Lonavala campus on 19th March, 2019.

Prof. Rajesh Nayak was the Guest Speaker. They said, “the philosophy of Bhagavad Gita should not be viewed from devotional perspectives only but also as a guide in developing managerial effectiveness. In the eighteen chapters of Bhagavad Gita, one can discover tremendous management guidelines which are applicable even today.” He shared the techniques of restraining desires and senses which can turn into greed or anger if not restrained.

He explained The Divisions of Faith with reference to chapter 17, text 15 of Bhagavad Gita, “anudvega-karam vakyamsatyam priya-hitam ca yat svadhyayabhyasanam caiva van-mayam tapa ucyate”, it means one should not speak in such a way as to agitate the minds of others. By avoiding that one may derive the highest benefit and elevate human society. He also opined on Power of Association - a character of person which can be understood to be the average of that of the five people he associates with in daily. Hence meditate on the Lord who has all the qualities that transcend the modes.

He also mulled upon meditation exercises and techniques which help in associating with divine qualities and benefit in avoiding bouts of jealousy, anger and envy and rather communicating in goodness and becoming calm and composed in our thoughts, speech, and action. He recommended reciting the Vedas regularly as austerity of speech consists of speaking truthfully and beneficially and in avoiding speech that offends. It also helps in sharpening intelligence and turning the mind to the self rather than letting it go outward materially.

He made the entire faculty members present understand, how the modes of material nature or gunaas work and how to use this understanding to be aware of situations every second and not to react but to respond appropriately as an when needed.

Prof. Nayak concluded with saying that the contribution of Bhagavad Gita is not only spiritual knowledge but also the art of self-determination, personality, behavior, time management, stress management and many others aspects of management skills which can be used as a guide to increase management effectiveness. The Bhagavad-Gita suggested an HRM approach, which focuses on exploring the inner world of the self. If faculty can develop a sense of confidence as indicated in the Bhagavad Gita, the quality of leadership will be improved and the quality of management will be improved.

At the start of the programme, Director of 'SIBACA', Dr. Vikas Inamdar & Principal of 'NBNCOCS', Dr. Jaywant Desai welcomed and felicitated the Guest speakers-trainers. More than 50 teachers from all the institutions in Lonavala campuses attended the programme for which they were given the certificates. Dr. Sachin Wankhede & Dr. Kamlapure co-ordinated the Faculty Development Programme.
