About the Dialogue
The wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita World Leadership Dialogue 10th-13th December, 2015 Chinmaya Vibhooti Ashram Kolwan , Pune

ABOUT THE DIALOGUE:

India has been known for its great wisdom, traditions and cultural heritage. The Bhagavad Gita is at the centre of this precious knowledge. Poojya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji’s powerful videos, books and commentary on this precious scripture continue to inspire millions. His teachings transform our vision to discover the true purpose of our lives, help us to build strong character, develop our competence to think holistically & innovatively. They make us realize our ‘gifts’ & our ‘calling’, teach us to leverage our strengths towards our purpose and above all, enable us to discover and realize our potential as ‘Inspired Leaders’ in all the roles that we perform. Although many people have been transforming their organizations based on this model of ‘Inspired Leadership’, we do not have enough research being done to understand how the knowledge enshrined within Bhagavad Gita has enabled individuals and organizations to benefit from this vast reservoir of knowledge and wisdom.
