MANAGER Redefined - Part 3: Sri Sathya Sai Paradigm


Nature is nation (meaning geographical area with politically defined boundaries) and nation is nature (meaning the geographical area is the manifestation of the five elements). Then why do you call it nature of nations? We should analyse this issue in greater detail for clear understanding. Bharat is a nation. America is a nation [i]. England is a nation. Russia is a nation. Each nation has a unique nature. America has its own nature that can be termed as ‘American nature’. Similarly each country has its own nature. One country should not emulate the nature of another country. India should not imitate another country’s (America or Russia) nature. 

People who wish to do business in India should be familiar with the nature of India in all its aspects as a nation. Since nature and nation have a close relationship, they should be reflected in this relationship. We are born in Bharat (India). We have to develop a nature affable to Bharat, which is our nation. What is the nature of the nation? Indians in the bygone ages always spoke Satya (truth), followed the path of Dharma (righteousness) and lead their lives with integrity and morality. From where have we inherited this kind of nature? In the acronym of ‘MANAGER’, the first letter is ‘M’, the second letter is ‘A’ and third letter is ‘N’. If you join all the three letters, it is ‘MAN’. Man is the synthesis of three aspects: Manas (Mind), Atman (Soul) and Deha (Body). Harmony among these three aspects forms the principle of ‘MAN’.


[i] Nation can be defined as a group of people sharing aspects of language, culture and/or ethnicity; a historically constituted, stable community of people, based on a common language, territory, economic life, and psychological make-up manifested in a common culture.
