The 18 Principles of Yogic Management:

1. Through meditation and intuition, use your mind as a sixth sense to access the infinite library of the universe

2. Mature your mind and awaken your Intellect by cultivating wisdom and expanding your consciousness

3. Channel the fire of your mind toward illumination, not toward ignorance or destruction

4. Achieve guaranteed success by performing work for the sake of the work and not for the results of the work. Let the ends and the means be joined as one by treating your work as the ends as well as the means to the end

5. Practicing non-attachment to the fruits (results) of work, focus on what you can influence, on your contributions, knowledge, and actions. Do not get distracted and waste your energy worrying about future outcomes that are not completely under your influence

6. Make decisions with a pure motive and then perform actions with a positive mind and by using proper means

7. Live a balanced lifestyle by being balanced in work, relaxation, recreation, and all other activities

8. Always treat people equally. Never discriminate against anybody based on their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, age, or any other criteria

9. Fill your mind with positive, pure, and righteous thoughts, which you put into practice in words, spoken or written, and in deeds performed. Establish your character by always practicing good thoughts, words, and deeds

10. Make character the most important criteria you use when you hire employees. A position is never wasted if it is assigned to the good and righteous

11. Derive strength from your Atma, the source of tremendous light and energy that resides within your body’s five sheaths. Don’t limit your potential for greatness by relying on praise or competition from external sources for your motivation

12. Understand that true education teaches humility and builds character, which leads to wealth, Dharma and happiness

13. Pursue education and wealth as if you were to live forever. Practice Dharma as if you were to die at any moment

14. Live a purposeful life by living an L-shaped or U-shaped life

15. Always consider Dharma (righteousness, duty) above wealth (income, savings) and wealth above pleasure (expenses, consumption)

16. Establish Dharma in the world of business by practicing Yogic Management

17. Practice a holistic blend of the four Yogas of wisdom, meditation, devotion, and service

18. Always take into consideration the environmental implications of all your actions in work and in life. True wisdom leads to living in harmony with the Earth and all life on Earth

The Yogic Management Mantra:

From the unreal, lead me to the real,

From darkness, lead me to light,

From mortality, lead me to immortality,

From ignorance, lead me to knowledge,

From knowledge, lead me to wisdom,

From performing work as war, lead me to performing work as worship,

From practicing the art of war, lead me to practicing Yoga, the art of work,

From doing the right things right, lead me to do the righteous thing righteously,

From living an i-shaped life or I-shaped life, lead me to living an L-shaped life or U-shaped life,

From building credit history, lead me to building karmic history,

From being encaged in ignorance, lead me to being engaged in wisdom, meditation, devotion, and service,

From thinking the Earth exists for humans, lead me to understand that humans cannot exist without the Earth.
