Mission and Vision
What is Mission and Vision? Neither an individual nor an organization can move forward in life without a proper mission and vision. Mission and vision is like a navigator for the growth of an individual and an organization. All mission is only for a vision. There is no purpose of a mission without accomplishing a vision. And the whole objective of a vision is to see the invisible. If mission is an action then vision is a strategy. A strategy is nothing but a long-term action plan that changes the very direction and outlook of an individual and an organization. If vision is a process then mission is a sub-process. If vision is a task then mission is ...

What is Success?
Each one expects to be successful and nobody wants to be a failure. Is true success possible without a failure? I don't think so. Failure is a transition to success. Failure has seeds of success embedded within it. To be truly successful one has to accept failure. One can transcend both only when both success and failure are accepted with equanimity. A small child falls innumerable times before he stands up straight. This is how he learns to walk and run. Why do we first of all create this dichotomy of success and failure? Why this division? The moment we divide things, delusion starts. This is quiet obvious. The moment you condition yourself, confusion and chaos takes control of ...

What is my career? What should I do? What should I pursue? There has always been this constant confusion in all of us. There are so many professions and vocations but nobody really knows what is true for us? If you ask others we get into more confusion rather. To whom to ask? How to know? There is no one answer. Each one gives his own answer. This is a great dilemma in life when it comes to careers. Sometimes the mind turns into a madhouse. To me we should do what ultimately interests us. We must pursue where our hurt beats. We must do what we love to do. And we must love what we always wanted to do ...

Appo Deepo Bhava!
It was Buddha's last day in this mortal world. Ananda was his cousin and also the closest disciple. He was crying and weeping. Ananda was not yet Enlightened. He was saying Buddha, "You are a spiritual Guru and a beacon to me and all us on this journey of enlightenment. Now you are leaving us all. What will happen to us? What will happen to me? Who will show us the right way and right path? Who will take me and guide me on this spiritual journey? The whole world and life was an utter darkness to us and you came in our life as our light and delight. Who will show us this light now?" Buddha just opened ...
