Swami Vivekananda – Organisation Builder With a Difference

Vivekananda – This name is not new to the world and more well known in the western world as Founder of great organization Ramakrishna Math, and the order of monks in the lineage of great Saint Ramakrishna Paramahamsa.

Vivekananda’s historical address at the opening session of the Parliament of Religions in Chicago on 11th September, 1893, is still an ideal example for the great qualities of knowledge, sacrifice, non-violence and self-confidence which are the very foundation of Indianism.

His addressing of Americans is still referred as great example for the Indian quality of Universal brotherhood and One World – One family philosophy i.e. ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’.

‘Sisters and Brothers of America, It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have given us. I thank you in the name of the ancient Order of monks in the world; I thank you in the name of the mother of religions, and I thank you in the name of millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects.’

Who will not become instantly hooked to this kind of speech? Is it not an excellent example of public speaking?

It is heartening to note that Vivekananda is a great builder of Organisations and very much passionate about Organisational building and laid down some interesting guidelines in building organizations. Vivekananda’s views on Organisation and organized work are very much relevant in these days of recession and worth studying to understand his ideas and ideals for budding Entrepreneurs. Let me throw 토토 꽁머니 some light on the great wisdom of Swami Vivekananda on Organisational behaviour and organizational building.

Rig Veda Samhita says, ‘Be thou all of one mind, be thou all of one thought, for in the days of yore, the gods being of ne mind were enabled to receive oblations’. This is in line with the management thought that the whole organization must align with the objectives, vision and mission of the Company. Such is the ancient wisdom of India which was reflected in Vedas. Being of one mind is the secret of success of the Organisation.

The success of your undertaking depends wholly upon your mutual love. To make great future for any Country, the whole secret lies in organization, accumulation of power, coordination of wills… that is the secret… accumulation of will-power, coordination, bringing them all, as it were, into one focus. The term organization means division of labour. Each does his own part and all the parts taken together express an ideal of harmony. Every one has to play his or her role in building the organization, so that the organization can achieve its goal in harmony.

The secret of success is there; to pay as much attention to the means as to the end.
But we never do this. We always struggle and strive to achieve our goals by any means only to realize the gory end and grope in the dark in vain. This has resulted in unexpected problem like global recession, where every country is suffering and it is expected that nearly 95 countries across the globe will suffer in the coming two years due to this economic down turn.

The impact, influence and style of leadership cannot be ignored in building great organizations. A leader must have an all-sided intellect to do efficient work. It is very difficult to take the role of a leader – one must be ‘Dasasya Dasaha – a servant of servant and must accommodate a thousand minds. A servant leadership only can build great organization and Hanuman is the real example of loyalty and servant leadership. There must not be a shade of jealousy or selfishness, and then you are a leader. How many leaders like this you can find in the Corporate World or Political arena.

He never becomes a leader in whose love there is a consideration of high or low. That is one should not be biased in people management and equality in treating everyone must be followed without fail. He whose love knows no end, and never stops to consider high or low, has the whole world lying at his feet.

Be the servant if you will rule. That is the real secret of success. Your love will tell even if your words be harsh. Instinctively men feel the love clothed in whatever language.

To build great organization, we want some fiery young men. Intelligent and brave, who dare to go to the jaws of death and are ready to swim the ocean across – we want hundreds like that, both men and women. Try your utmost for that end alone. Whether we be ten or two, do not care, but those few must be perfect characters.
