The book is a modern retelling of the ancient mythological epic, the Mahabharata, set in today's world of business. The epic's war of Kurukshetra has been recreated in the world of business at a consulting firm called Characterra Consulting. The protagonist is Arjun Atmanand who faces a crisis when his conscience clashes with the instructions of his boss and Characterra's founder, Raja Sahamkar.
To help him with his crisis, Arjun receives advice from Yogi, a being with supernatural powers. Arjun learns Yoga and Vedanta from Yogi, which he uses to build a bridge between Yoga-Vedanta and Management. Arjun develops a set of Yogic Management frameworks and principles that are the foundations of this bridge: 1. Reality-Consciousness-Bliss Framework 2. Knowledge Work Equation 3. Motive-Mind-Means Framework 4. Purposeful Life Framework 5. Principles of Yogic Management 6. Yogic Management Mantra
The book takes a difficult path to navigate and is extremely dense and seriously long. Points are stretched to the point of breaking and without any practical examples, it's a test of patience. It also doesn't help that author decides make impractical suggestions and offer very little solutions. Read it if you must!
