To understand the science and art of management as something that was developed in the West is based on the view of ‘what management is or should be’. In fact, management according to the ancient Hindu Philosophers’ view is the “science and art of causing and controlling destiny” – the destiny of the individual man, his organisations and enterprises.

According to all the great Hindu Philosophers, man is knowingly or unknowingly causing and controlling his destiny by his own actions and not because of some supernatural agencies. According to them every phenomenon that is taking place in this world is the effect of some activity or Karma or the other. Therefore, man by choosing his goals, ways and means intelligently can cause and control the various natural or man-made phenomena affecting him and moulding his destiny. This is the “Karma Theory” of the Hindus as well as the basis for all management principles and practices. What these principles and practice are and how to use them is the subject matter of this book.

About the Author

Sri Kerala Varma Kunjappan Thampuran (K.V.K Thampuran) (1935 – 2009) was born into the royal family of Cochin, Kerala in India on December 11, 1935 which is known for its scholarly and philosopher kings. After his schooling in Kerala, he completed his Electrical Engineering professional course at BM Srinivasaiyya(BMS) College of Engineering, Bangalore.

After graduation, Thampuran worked in Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Bangalore as a Design Engineer in the R&D team led by Dr Tank Kurt. In 1964 he married Gīta, the daughter of Late Sri Arya Vaidyan PV Rama Varier, founder of Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, Coimbatore Ltd. In 1968 he joined the R&D team at Bharath Electronics producing, developing and manufacturing defence and civil electronic equipments.

In the 1970s he was deeply influenced by His Holiness Swami Chinmayananda, a preacher of the Hindu texts, Indian philosophy, culture and heritage. As an active member of the Chinmaya Mission, he became the Secretary of the Mission and started the popular youth movement, called ‘Chinmaya Yuvakendra’ in 1974. He then moved on to become the Director of the Vigyana Mandir, Chinmaya Mission, Bangalore.

Thampuran’s first foray into philosophical writing is a ‘Manual on Self-unfoldment’ for the youth followed by ‘Vedānta – The Science of Life’ written in three parts. These were compilations of Swami Chinmayananda’s work. Using these texts published by Chinmaya Publications in 1975 and 1982 respectively, he conducted study groups for the youth and ran comprehensive courses on Vedānta.

He took on the role of Director, Chinmaya Institute of Management with the aim of developing India’s own management system, by integrating the Hindu principles and philosophy to management practices. To achieve this vision he gave talks and successfully conducted several workshops relevant to senior executives and leaders of leading companies and organizations in India such as, TELCO India (TATA), Jamshedpur; Hindustan Shipyard, Vizag; Jyothi Electricals, Baroda; Lakshmi Machine Works, Coimbatore and others, and tested the acceptance of ancient Indian concepts on motivation, human resource development etc.

He became a member of the Advisory Council of Divyam Academy of Values run by Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, Coimbatore Ltd. He conducted classes for teachers on Indian Philosophical concepts related to education, for a year in 2006. He found the school curriculum of that time wanting on many fronts. It inspired him with the idea of a Dharma based subject at school level. This led to the creation of an outline called ‘Dhārmic Education’ subject for classes 1 to 10. In 2008, he completed ‘Indian Integrative Management’ which was a culmination of twenty year thought process along these lines. Lastly, he began a book on ‘Education, a comparative study between modern and ancient systems’ which could not be completed.
