How much is the right amount to ask donors for? Michael Gorriarán, President @ Arjuna Solutions, joins the show to answer this fundamental question. Dan and Michael discuss how Arjuna applies behavioral economics to determine the optimal ask amount for creating long-term relationships with donors which maximizes their lifetime value potential. Topics Discussed Also Include: - How behavioral economics also help non-profits determine when and often to mail individual donors (important in an era of inflation and declining response rates) - Why behavioral economic modeling takes a clearer picture of donors than transactional data or wealth screening alone - The importance of optimizing ask amounts across channels (Did you know that asking donors for different amounts on and offline can hurt LTV?) - How to break down barriers and silos which prevent cross-channel collaboration from happening (a favorite topic of discussion on Dynamic Non-Profits!) - Budgeting solutions that can make non-profits more nimble - Plus, so much more! Michael also shares his family history in philanthropy and the lessons he learned working at Microsoft that can increase the impact of the non-profit sector. This is a fun conversation for fundraisers and data geeks alike which is chalk full of practical solutions, but also addresses some critical bigger picture issues for the fundraising industry. If you get value out of our conversation with Michael, please subscribe to Dynamic Non-Profits Podcast and rate and review the show. It only takes a few seconds and it makes a big impact in the search rankings...It also helps us find more great guests just like Michael.

The 13th chapter begins with another question from Arjuna. He asks in the 1st verse: “What is Prakriti or matter? What is the nature of consciousness? What is kshetra or field? Who is kshetrajna, knower of the field? What is known, who is the knower, and what is knowledge?”Lord Krishna starts answering in the 2nd verse. He says that this body is the kshetram, or field. More broadly, we can think of the field as this material universe, which is changing and that is not eternal. It gradually decays and eventually disappears. Kshetrajna is the knower of the field. Within the field there is something that is not subject to modification – that is kshetrajna. It is the Atman, which is immanent, all-pervading and transcendental.When we refer to kshetram as the body, it refers to the following – the physical body comprising five elements, five senses of perception, five senses of action, mind and intellect.We sow seeds of tendencies and impressions in this field through our actions, thoughts, emotions and words. We are reborn with this legacy of tendencies and impressions. They determine in which direction our mind goes. That is why different people demonstrate different level of interest and understanding when reading a spiritual book. We can only understand what we are spiritually ready for.We march towards enlightenment when we realize kshetra as only kshetra, not as the highest reality. Then we look for something higher than kshetra, and our spiritual journey begins. Ultimately, we realize that the divine spark is present as drshta, as the witness, as kshetrajna, in all kshetras.Swami Vivekananda said that the difference between an amoeba and a Buddha is only of degrees, not of kind. Buddha is like the clean mirror, in whom the presence of the lord manifests in His full effulgence. Noble, unselfish action generate spiritual energy which purifies our mind, and helps us manifest this divinity with more effulgence.3rd verse: Lord Krishna says: “What is the nature of this kshetra? How does it undergo change? How does it originate? What is the real nature of kshetrajna? How does it manifest? Hear this from Me.”4th verse: “This great science of understanding the distinction between the Real and the unreal – this is the real knowledge of spiritual realization. Great vedic sages sang great hymns on the glory and greatness of this knowledge.”In daily life, we get into trouble because of wrong prioritization. We prioritize the empirical, the non-eternal. When we learn to prioritize the Real, lots of problems of daily life can be avoided.5th verse: The 5th verse describes the Sankhya philosophy of evolution expounded by Kapila. In Sankhya, there are two categories: (1) Purusha, which is eternal and self-effulgent (2) Prakriti, which is the cause of material evolution. From Prakriti, the first evolute is Mahatattvam or cosmic intelligence. From Mahatattvam, the next evolute is Ahamkara or ego-sense. From Ahamkara, the three gunas evolve: Sattva guna, Rajo guna and Tamo guna. The evolutes of sattva guna are the mind, the five senses of perception and the five senses of action. The evolutes of tamo guna are the five subtle elements and the five gross elements.The material world consists of the mind, the five senses of perception, the five senses of action, sense objects, and human tendencies –desires, love, hatred, pleasure, pain and so on.Within this material world is the divine spark. It is immanent in every being. When we begin to manifest spiritual qualities that are described in the next few verses, then we connect with the divine within.7th and 8th verses: These verses describe the qualities of someone who has spiritual knowledge. (1) Humility – it is the natural expression of one with spiritual growth because he understands that the body is just an instrument to do great things. (2) Not pretentious – his thoughts, words and deeds become one (3) Non-violence, as he instinctively feels spiritual affinity with entire creation (4) Forbearance (5) Uprightness (6) Respect for the teacher (7) Mental purity (8) Steadiness (9) Self-control – the spiritual energy from his noble actions gives him steadiness and self-control (10) Detachment from sense pleasures (11) Absence of egoism (12) Understands the misery of birth, death, sickness and old age.Shankaracharya says that in spiritual literature, whenever a list of characteristics of a spiritually enlightened person is provided, there is only one purpose. These characteristics constitute the road by which we should travel to reach the goal that the enlightened person has reached.Ego cannot be wished away. Our ego can also be given a spiritual orientation. By sublimating the ego and giving it a promotion, eventually, we can transcend ego. Sri Ramakrishna said: “Let this rascal ego remain as a servant of God.”Buddha reflected on the miseries of birth, death, sickness and old age. He went to Bodh Gaya, sat under a tree and took a vow to not leave his seat until he realized the spiritual truth.

The 12 th chapter on Bhakti Yoga begins with a question from Arjuna. He asks: “Some people worshipGod with name and form – they chant and pray. Others worship the imperishable, the unmanifest.Which is better?”Arjuna's question came from a conflict he was facing. From earlier chapters, Arjuna knew that there aretwo ways of looking upon God. (1) God as the creator and protector, who listens to our prayers (2) Godas the all-pervading divine spirit, that is Nirakara, transcending names and forms. Arjuna thought hecould choose between God with form or God without form.It is not a matter of our intellectual choice. It is a matter of our own spiritual evolution. A ten-year-oldboy has to attend primary school first – he cannot just choose to go to a university. Similarly, in thebeginning of our spiritual journey, we worship God as Sakara, as the creator and protector. Upon thehighest realization, we see God as Nirakara, the all-pervading divine spirit present everywhere and ineverything, transcending names, forms, time, space, causation, and verbalization.In answer, Lord Krishna says that for those who identify with their body, the path of Nirakara is verydifficult. Their only option is to worship God as Sakara, by performing spiritual practices.They can have the intellectual conviction of the highest idea of God to prevent fanaticism. Advaitaaccommodates the path of Bhakti – each one should follow the path that is most suitable for them.Bhakti reaches its zenith when the devotee feels he is an instrument in the hands of God.In the 13 th to 19 th verses of the 12 th chapter, Lord Krishna describes the characteristics of an idealdevotee. Lord Krishna does not mention rituals or going to a temple. He essentially says that all genuinedevotees are good human beings.Lord Krishna concludes the chapter in the 20 th verse by saying that anyone who practices this greatspiritual discipline with sanctity and sacredness, with unselfishness, with a universal outlook – he isextremely dear to Him.When a person, who has done spiritual practices in previous life, deviates from that path, God will helpput him back on the right path. In Vaishnava tradition, there is a verse, where God says: “The personwhom I want to bless, I shall steal all his wealth, I shall ensure he is deserted by his friends and becomesisolated. If he still retains his faith, I shall elevate him to such a high position that he will be the envy ofangels.”The 13 th chapter begins with another question from Arjuna. He asks in the 1 st verse: “What is Prakriti ormatter? What is the nature of consciousness? What is kshetra or field? Who is kshetrajna, knower of thefield? What is known, who is the knower, and what is knowledge?”The context behind this question comes from the 11 th chapter. In the 11 th chapter, Arjuna experiencesthe vision of the universal form of the divine. This cosmic divine form transcends our concept of timeand space. He shows that all the different creatures, animals, suns, moons, stars, galaxies, humanbeings, celestial beings – they all originate, exist, dissolve and re-emerge within that cosmic divine form.When Arjuna gets this vision, he is freed from doubts. However, some doubts remained. For example,he thought of the cosmic form as God's body. He thought, “What happens to God's body?”Lord Krishna starts answering in the 2 nd verse. He says that this body is the kshetram, or field. This bodyis a complex, intelligent machine. There is a designer behind it who came up with this intelligent design.That designer is the kshetrajna, the one who knows this machine – it is the divine spark that is presentwithin this body.It is present in every being. Swami Vivekananda said that the difference between an amoeba and aBuddha is only of degrees, not of kind. Buddha is like the clean mirror, in whom the presence of the lordmanifests in His full effulgence.We march towards enlightenment when we realize kshetra as only kshetra, not as the highest reality.Then we look for something higher than kshetra, and our spiritual journey begins. Ultimately, we realizethat the divine spark is present as drshta, as the witness, as kshetrajna, in all kshetras.

In this episode, The Bearded Mystic Podcast discusses the 6th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, specifically verses  1 - 6. Sri Krishna guides Arjuna that you must not renounce what is in your nature and your responsibilities in life. Both renunciation and the path of yoga for the householder reach the same destination. Which is to to renounce the fruits of one's actions. Sri Krishna guides us to be an observer and to remain balanced, keeping our mind in peace. Sri Krishna simply instructs us to not cling to any action within this world or our senses and to give up action. Sri Krishna highlights the power of the atman, and therefore, it is up to us how we use it. Disciplining our atman is what makes it our best friend. Translation used: The Bhagavad Gita Comes Alive: A Radical Translation by Jeffrey ArmstrongI hope you enjoyed listening to the 44th episode of the Thoughts on The Bhagavad Gita and if you are interested in listening to more episodes like this on further chapters and verses, or on Non-Duality, or you want to learn more about the wisdom of the Mystics please follow/subscribe to this Podcast.Support The Bearded Mystic Podcast on Patreon:https://www.patreon.com/thebeardedmysticpodcastJoin The Bearded Mystic Podcast Discussion Group:  https://chat.whatsapp.com/GcCnyrjQwLuEPHBaVA6q9LBe notified of my weekly virtual meditation session followed by a Q&A Discussion via zoom (Notifications only):https://chat.whatsapp.com/DcdnuDMeRnW53E0seVp28bIf you would like a one-on-one meeting with me via Zoom, find the details here:https://calendly.com/thebeardedmysticpodcast/1on1meetingsSubscribe to the free monthly The Bearded Mystic Newsletter: http://thebeardedmysticpodcast.substack.comPlease rate and write a review for this Podcast: https://www.thebeardedmysticpodcast.com/reviews/new/You can follow me and contact me on social media:Website: https://www.thebeardedmysticpodcast.comTikTok: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdk3HPJh/Discord: https://discord.gg/4DbureZw8yInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/thebeardedmysticpodcast/Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheBeardedMysticPodcast/Twitter: https://twitter.com/bearded_mysticFacebook: Ashley T Lee PodcastAshley T.

Sri Krishna highlights the luminous nature of Brahman is shown in the Sage that sees no matter as their own and they go beyond the trap of duality. Sri Krishna explains how yogis experience eternal happiness by removing all duality in between the mind and Brahman. Arjuna is given a technique for meditation. Sri Krishna gives us the path of true renunciation that we can complete as a householder. By turning within, in the midst of activity, we attain freedom. The purpose of this verse is clear by Sri Krishna that we must find that Brahman is everywhere and everything, every action is in Brahman, and every thought and intention is in Brahman, therefore, wherever there is brahman, there is peace and harmony. Whether there is peace and harmony, joy and prosperity always follow. May every spiritual seeker get peace, joy, and prosperity. Translation used: The Bhagavad Gita Comes Alive: A Radical Translation by Jeffrey ArmstrongI hope you enjoyed listening to the 43rd episode of the Thoughts on The Bhagavad Gita and if you are interested in listening to more episodes like this on further chapters and verses, or on Non-Duality, or you want to learn more about the wisdom of the Mystics please follow/subscribe to this Podcast.Support The Bearded Mystic Podcast on Patreon:https://www.patreon.com/thebeardedmysticpodcastJoin The Bearded Mystic Podcast Discussion Group:  https://chat.whatsapp.com/GcCnyrjQwLuEPHBaVA6q9LBe notified of my weekly virtual meditation session followed by a Q&A Discussion via zoom (Notifications only):https://chat.whatsapp.com/DcdnuDMeRnW53E0seVp28bIf you would like a one-on-one meeting with me via Zoom, find the details here:https://calendly.com/thebeardedmysticpodcast/1on1meetingsSubscribe to the free monthly The Bearded Mystic Newsletter: http://thebeardedmysticpodcast.substack.comPlease rate and write a review for this Podcast: https://www.thebeardedmysticpodcast.com/reviews/new/You can follow me and contact me on social media:Website: https://www.thebeardedmysticpodcast.comTikTok: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdk3HPJh/Discord: https://discord.gg/4DbureZw8yInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/thebeardedmysticpodcast/Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheBeardedMysticPodcast/Twitter: https://twitter.com/bearded_mysticFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/The-Bearded-Mystic-PodcastBecoming Outlaws: True Stories of Divine Encounters with Ken McMullenAs many as three-quarters of Americans believe in the paranormal.

OPTIMIZE with Brian Johnson | More Wisdom in Less Time

Gandhi, the Gita, Bagger Vance, and YOU   In our last couple +1s, we've had fun hanging out with some world-class peak performance coaches: Harvey Dorfman and Phil Stutz.    What did they teach us?   They tell us that it's ALL ABOUT focusing on the PROCESS of TAKING ACTION rather than the unhealthy obsession on the OUTCOMES.    They, of course, are not alone in this perspective.    We talk about it in one of my all-time favorite +1s called “Did I Win? How to Sink a $1m Putt and Do Other Great Things.”   Short story: Lanny Bassham worked with a golfer who hadn't won in a while. Lanny told him to not even think about winning a tournament. Instead, they developed a protocol. His job was to EXECUTE that protocol every shot of every round he played.    Fast forward a few tournaments. It's the final shot on the final hole on the final day of the tournament. Our golfer steps up, executes his protocol and makes the putt.   Then his wife runs onto the green and leaps into his arms.    His response?   “Did I win?”   I just got goosebumps typing that out. I've told that story COUNTLESS times. And it gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME.   Imagine stepping up for a $1 million dollar putt and being SO FOCUSED on the PROCESS that you're OBLIVIOUS to the OUTCOME.   Boom. That's how it's done.   Then there's Gandhi.    He tells us the same thing in his own words.    In Eknath Easwaran's FANTASTIC biography Gandhi the Man (check out those Notes!), we learn that Gandhi liked to say: “The goal ever recedes from us. The greater the progress the greater the recognition of our unworthiness. Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory.”   BOOM. That's how it's done.   Where'd Gandhi get that wisdom?   From his bible, the Bhagavad Gita (check out those Notes!) where we learn the fact that: “The awakened sages call a person wise when all his undertakings are free from anxiety about results.”   I could go on and on and on. I'll leave it at that for now.    Actually…   Let's bring it back to the 21st century and hear how Steven Pressfield puts it in The War of Art (check out THOSE Notes as well!).   He tells us: “The professional has learned that success, like happiness, comes as a by-product of work. The professional concentrates on the work and allows rewards to come or not come, whatever they like.”   btw: Pressfield actually wrote a book on the subject that became a movie starring Will Smith and Matt Damon. Ever heard of The Legend of Bagger Vance? Did you know that that movie is basically the Bhagavad Gita on a golf course?    Yep.    In the Gita, a wise god (Krishna) advises a reluctant warrior (Arjuna). In The Legend of Bagger Vance, a wise caddy (Bagger Vance) advises a reluctant golfer (Rannulph Junuh).   “Bagger Vance” “Bhagavad Gita.” Get it?   So…   Quick check-in…   What do YOU want in your life?   More Energy? More Productivity? More Connection?   Awesome.    What can you do RIGHT NOW (!) to take ONE STEP toward to achieving it?   Get on that.    Release attachment to outcomes.   Repeat.    All day. Every day.    ESPECIALLY…    TODAY.    +1. +1. +1.

Its meaning is: “O' Mother Gita, I bow down to you. I invoke your divine presence in my heart. This texthas 18 chapters and was preached by Lord Krishna to his disciple Arjuna. It was written by the greatsage, Vyasa, and is placed in the middle of a much great work, Mahabharata. Its central theme is thephilosophy of Advaita – it preaches that creation is one spiritual family and all religions represent somany paths leading to the same spiritual goal. “The 12th chapter is about Bhakti Yoga – the path of Devotion. The three other paths taught in the Gitaare Jnana Yoga – the path of knowledge, Karma Yoga – the path of selfless actions, and Dhyana Yoga –the path of self-restraint.In the 13 th and 14 th verses, Lord Krishna describes the characteristics of a devotee. He does not mentionrituals or going to a temple. He essentially says that all genuine devotees are good human beings.15 th verse: “A devotee is not agitated by anyone, and nobody is agitated by him. He is free from elation,envy, fear and anxiety.”18 th and 19 th verses: “His attitude is the same towards a friend or someone hostile to him, towards honorand dishonor, towards praise and criticism, towards heat and cold, and towards happiness and misery.He is content with whatever comes his way and is not attached to a place of residence – such a devoteeis dear to Me.”A devotee is well-established in strong faith and inner equanimity, because he has a sense of innerfulfillment. The line of demarcation between the duals disappears for him. The world does not agitatehim – he has no reason to be excited, envious, fearful or anxious. There is no otherness for him – he seesthe whole world as one spiritual family. He does not do anything to violate the Ritm of nature.20 th verse: “Anyone who practices this great spiritual discipline with sanctity and sacredness, withunselfishness, with a universal outlook – he is extremely dear to Me.”In the Bhagavata Purana, there is a dialog between King Nimi and the Nava Yogis. In answer to theKing's question: “Who is an ideal devotee of God?”, one of the sages gives the following answer: “Theone who sees the presence of God in all beings, and who sees the presence of all beings in God. “Bhagavata Purana describes that we can reach this highest level of devotion by practicing NavadhaBhakti - Sravanam (Hearing about God), Kirtanam (Chanting His Name and Glory), Vishnu smaranam(Remembering Him), Pada sevanam (Serving His Lotus Feet), Archanam (Worshipping Him), Vandanam(Prostrating before Him), Dasyam (Being His Servant), Sakhyam (Befriending Him), and Atma Nivedanam(Surrendering to Him).The 12th chapter of Gita can be seen as a commentary on an important verse in the Bhagavata Purana.The essence of this verse is: “A spiritual seeker can begin his journey at a temple or with a book. That isjust a starting point. As he moves forward, he starts seeing the presence of God outside the templewalls. As he evolves further, he sees the presence of God everywhere and in everything. Everythingbecomes an act of worship. Every thought becomes a meditation, every word becomes a mantra, everyaction becomes an act of worship, every travel becomes a pilgrimage, every movement becomes acircumambulation around the deity, and the whole life becomes an offering to God. “What is the residential address of God. Lord Krishna says that his permanent residential address is theheart of all beings.Every Gita chapter ends with a verse which starts as an auspicious prayer referring to the unity andoneness of existence. It then says that Gita was written by Vyasa and appears in the sixth section ofMahabharata. Finally, it equates Gita to the Upanishads. It teaches the science of spiritualenlightenment through four important paths.

In this episode, The Bearded Mystic Podcast discusses the 5th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, specifically verses  20 - 24. Sri Krishna explains how the person that is established in the knowledge of Brahman becomes the same in quality as Brahman too. They are one and the same - therefore they never get over-excited or overly disappointed. Sri Krishna explains how eternal happiness is found in getting the mind united with Brahman. Arjuna is reminded that material pleasures have a finite existence and therefore, he must always discern so he doesn't get trapped in the cycle of seeking pleasure. Sri Krishna is telling us that we can achieve a steady state of happiness in this life itself and it can be practically done if we look into the causes of our desires and anger. Ecstasy and self-illumination become the way of the Sage. They are full of joy, brimming to the top with happiness. They understand they are one and the same in essence as Brahman, this Pure Awareness. Translation used: The Bhagavad Gita Comes Alive: A Radical Translation by Jeffrey Armstrong Available here on AmazonI hope you enjoyed listening to the 42nd episode of the Thoughts on The Bhagavad Gita and if you are interested in listening to more episodes like this on further chapters and verses, or on Non-Duality, or you want to learn more about the wisdom of the Mystics please follow/subscribe to this Podcast.Support The Bearded Mystic Podcast on Patreon:https://www.patreon.com/thebeardedmysticpodcastJoin The Bearded Mystic Podcast Discussion Group:  https://chat.whatsapp.com/GcCnyrjQwLuEPHBaVA6q9LBe notified of my weekly virtual meditation session followed by a Q&A Discussion via zoom (Notifications only):https://chat.whatsapp.com/DcdnuDMeRnW53E0seVp28bIf you would like a one-on-one meeting with me via Zoom, find the details here:https://calendly.com/thebeardedmysticpodcast/1on1meetingsJoin The Bearded Mystic Podcast Discussion Group:  https://chat.whatsapp.com/GcCnyrjQwLuEPHBaVA6q9LSubscribe to the free monthly The Bearded Mystic Newsletter: http://thebeardedmysticpodcast.substack.comPlease rate and write a review for this Podcast on https://www.thebeardedmysticpodcast.com/reviews/new/You can find links to Live Streams, Podcast, Videos etc: https://linktr.ee/thebeardedmysticpodcastYou can follow me and contact me on social media:Website: https://www.thebeardedmysticpodcast.comTikTok: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdk3HPJh/Discord: https://discord.gg/4DbureZw8yInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/thebeardedmysticpodcast/Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheBeardedMysticPodcast/Twitter: https://twitter.com/bearded_mysticFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/The-Bearded-Mystic-PodcastSupport the show

MindGeek, the secretive owner of Pornhub, RedTube YouPorn, and Brazzers, employs around sixteen hundred people, and received approximately 4.5 trillion visits each month in 2020, according to a company spokesperson—almost double Google and Facebook combined. Research by the British Board of Film Classification in 2019 suggested 51% of children aged 11 to 13 had seen pornography, rising to 66% of 14- to 15-year-olds. This has since risen. So is there a cost to our happiness, health and wellbeing? We examine the topic from a spiritual perspective. Some of the quotes I used: Lust vs. Love Lust and love have different characteristics, just as iron and gold have different natures. – Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta - Ādi-līlā 4.164 Thus, a person's pure consciousness is covered by his eternal enemy in the form of lust, which is never satisfied and which burns like fire. - Bhagavad-gītā 3.39 Arjuna said: O descendant of Vṛṣṇi, by what is one impelled to sinful acts, even unwillingly, as if engaged by force? - Bhagavad-gītā 3.36 Śri-Bhagavān said: It is lust only, Arjuna, which is born of contact with the material mode of passion and later transformed into wrath, and which is the all-devouring sinful enemy of this world. – Bhagavad-gītā 3.37 As fire is covered by smoke, as a mirror is covered by dust, or as the embryo is covered by the womb, the living entity is similarly covered by different degrees of this lust. - Bhagavad-gītā 3.38 Thus, a person's pure consciousness is covered by his eternal enemy in the form of lust, which is never satisfied and which burns like fire.- - Bhagavad-gītā 3.39 The senses, the mind and the intelligence are the sitting places of this lust, which veils the real knowledge of the living entity and bewilders him. - Bhagavad-gītā 3.40 Therefore, O Arjuna, best of the Bhāratas, in the very beginning curb this great symbol of sin [lust] by regulating the senses, and slay this destroyer of knowledge and self-realization. - Bhagavad-gītā 3.41 While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises. - Bhagavad-gītā 2.62 There are three gates leading to this hell -- lust, anger and greed. Every sane person should give these up, for they lead to the degradation of the soul. - Bhagavad-gītā 16.21 One who accepts material sense objects as desirable certainly becomes attached to them. From such attachment lust arises, and this lust creates quarrel among men. -Bhāgavata Purāṇa 11.21.19 Nonviolence, truthfulness, honesty, desire for the happiness and welfare of all others and freedom from lust, anger and greed constitute duties for all members of society. - Bhāgavata Purāṇa 11.17.21

NUGGET CONTEXT Raghu makes an interesting observation. He says that while Bhagwad Gita was a discussion between Krishna and Arjuna on the various dilemmas the latter was facing, it could have well been a conversation between Krishna and Karna. He says that Karna was so consumed by his hurt that he never even saw the dilemma and that was a missed opportunity. He connects this to several people and communities that might be going through a similar phenomenon. GUEST Raghu is formally trained as an engineer with an MS in Bio-Medical Engineering from IIT, Madras, He has been in immersive involvement in questions of human life.  He says that three extraordinary teachers mentored him when he was going through a very difficult phase of life, namely, J Krishnamurti, Yogacharya Krishnamacharya and Pulin K Garg. He was intimately involved with them for more than a decade from his late twenties. This engagement not only transformed him, it gifted him with the path that he has walked, his sAdhana.  He has been Cofounder of the Sumedhas Academy of Human Context since 1995, and of the Barefoot Academy of Governance with TISS since 2012. As Director of FLAME TAO Knoware Pvt Ltd his work spans the commercial world of consulting by helping redesign the client organization for greater alignment and synergy. His work revolves around helping individuals, groups and organizations discover their dharma, and become the best they can be. This aligns with his own personal Sadhana. ​His recent book - 5 Seats of Power - Discovering the best you can be through the Mahabharata - provides thought-provoking frameworks drawn from Indic Wisdom for understanding leadership and culture-building. In our conversation we dig into details around Raghu's journey and his insights from the book.  Published in Aug 2022. HOST Deepak is a Leadership Advisor and an Executive Coach.

NUGGET CONTEXT Raghu speaks about the evolving paradigm of leadership and how that is likely to look like a combination of Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva. Yudhishthira and Bheema might possibly be not as relevant as they were in a more predictable past. GUEST Raghu is formally trained as an engineer with an MS in Bio-Medical Engineering from IIT, Madras, He has been in immersive involvement in questions of human life.  He says that three extraordinary teachers mentored him when he was going through a very difficult phase of life, namely, J Krishnamurti, Yogacharya Krishnamacharya and Pulin K Garg. He was intimately involved with them for more than a decade from his late twenties. This engagement not only transformed him, it gifted him with the path that he has walked, his sAdhana.  He has been Cofounder of the Sumedhas Academy of Human Context since 1995, and of the Barefoot Academy of Governance with TISS since 2012. As Director of FLAME TAO Knoware Pvt Ltd his work spans the commercial world of consulting by helping redesign the client organization for greater alignment and synergy. His work revolves around helping individuals, groups and organizations discover their dharma, and become the best they can be. This aligns with his own personal Sadhana. ​His recent book - 5 Seats of Power - Discovering the best you can be through the Mahabharata - provides thought-provoking frameworks drawn from Indic Wisdom for understanding leadership and culture-building. In our conversation we dig into details around Raghu's journey and his insights from the book.  Published in Aug 2022. HOST Deepak is a Leadership Advisor and an Executive Coach.

I'm going to take a question from the audience today. They asked, "You were talking about pacifism, and I was wondering what Yogis or bhakti has to say about pacifism, given that the Bhagavad Gita is all about a battlefield upon which Krishna tells Arjuna to fight. How does that make any sense?"
