A Hindu Perspective to Organizational Learning
Shama Rao, Ashok; Kamath Burde, Jyothsna
Learning Organization, v24 n6 p386-391 2017
Purpose: This paper aims to provide an overview of the relevance and applicability of the Hindu tradition to organizational learning. Design/methodology/approach: Attempting to separate the spiritual from the religious aspects, a primarily theoretical approach is used to delineate the basic concepts in Hinduism and their applicability to various aspects of employee and organizational functioning. Findings: Concepts such as "Yoga," "Dharma," "Karma," "Yajna" and "Lokasamgraha" are discussed. Originality/value: This paper stems from the recognition of cultural differences and the need to explore alternative paradigms to understand and enhance organizational functioning.
