In today’s connected world, organizations touch many aspects of the lives of their employees, families and the larger society. This is because they have access to and are in control of vast resources in terms of people, material, technology and money. The more they touch lives in a sympathetic and responsible manner, the greater is the organizational growth and improvement in the quality of the lives they touch.
To implement this most effectively, the mindset of the leadership in terms of their vision, values and execution ability plays a critical role. An organizational leader empowered with a Spirituo-Scientific Mindset will have a higher vision, empathetic values, friendly and intuitive approach, and responsible execution ability.
Small and Medium Enterprises account for the majority of businesses worldwide and are important contributors to job creation and global economic development. They represent about 90% of businesses and more than 50% of employment worldwide.
In India alone, 63+ million companies are MSMEs (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises), contributing to significant amount of GDP and producing 100 million jobs.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), approximately 20%to 30% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 45% during the first five years, and 65% during the first 10 years, causing much frustration to their leadership, employees and stake holders. And these statistics have been quite consistent in these last 30 years.
It is obvious that the success rate of these companies is vital for the employees they touch and the communities they serve.
The necessity of success and growth is the same for the non-profit sector. It is estimated that there are more than 10 million non-profits and non-governmental registered organizations worldwide. If non-profits were a country, they would have the 5th largest economy in the world. And this sector is growing.It is estimated that about 7% of the people in the world are working for non-profits in some way or the other, and are touching the lives of billions of people and the planet.
It is vital that these charitable non-profit organizations succeed to serve people around the world, as well as the environment and the planet in general.
We observe that Leadership – CEO / Founders /Leaders- that is not compassionate can rarely be sympathetic and responsible to others. Leadership that is limited by rigid beliefs, thinking or values can almost never succeed in growing a sustainable business or organization neither creating more resources for others. Leadership that tends to act greedy or with excessive control over teams, can hardly ever enable others to innovate and contribute to the organization growth. Leadership that lacks vision or clarity in strategy and execution can by no means deliver performance and make a difference. The core reasons for this kind of traits and resulting lack of performance can easily be improved and overcome by any founder and leader through transforming and empowering themselves with a “Spirituo-Scientific” Mindset, built from the breath-mindfulness meditation-based wisdom and techniques.
This does apply to all students as they are the leaders of tomorrow. In India alone, 250 million students were going to school in 2019, including more than 37 million in higher education. More and more schools and universities around the world are enabling the new generations with mindfulness &meditation techniques, and companies like IBM have even introduced these techniques for the P-TECH schools that they are sponsoring. Developing “spirituo-scientific” minded students is a formidable transformative opportunity for the individuals, the economy and society in general.
Spirituo-Scientific Mindset in the context of businesses can be understood as :
We are ‘energy’ at our core and connected to each other deeply
We create our individual respective individual realities all the time through our own thoughts and feelings.
The world has abundance of resources for everyone.
A deeper universal intelligence that helps us to be our best in every situation.
Clearly, a Spirituo-Scientific Mindset allows for broader wisdom to overcome beliefs and unconscious biases, instills higher purpose and vision, and helps prevail over greed and the need for power.
A spirituo-scientific leader has the wisdom to make the best use of the resources in a manner that brings the maximum and long-lasting benefits to the organization, to their team and communities in particular, and to the whole world in general.
Spirituo-scientific Mindset can be developed in every individual by adopting mindfulness meditation practices and studying spiritual science (including Quantum Physics, Neuroscience and Physiology) that is totally independent of religion. A spirituo-scientific leader becomes a “Buddha-CEO” by practicing these new principles.
When the leaders are transformed and experience the benefits of meditation and these new principles, they automatically introduce them to the workforce in their organizations and all the people in their communities they serve.
The “Buddha-CEO Quantum Foundation” provides transformative meditation wisdom and techniques to all leaders / aspiring leaders, in a compassionate and friendly environment and inspires them to develop corporate socio-spiritual responsibility (CSSR) for greater community harmony and prosperity.
We wish to see that all leaders and entrepreneurs, no matter their age or seniority, become meditators and transform themselves into compassionate and creative individuals with complete clarity. We empower them to grow their organizations with a higher sense of purpose, towards their employees, communities and the larger society, thereby contributing to world harmony and individual fulfillment.
We wish to assist the transformed leaders to integrate meditation practices in their organizations and in the communities they serve. We empower leaders with non-religious, scientific spiritual wisdom and meditation techniques by way of:
Our targeted audiences are individual leaders, leadership groups, entrepreneurs and aspiring leaders including students; from both private and public businesses and organizations (governmental, non-governmental and education).
The Foundation envisages to carry out its mission through the following five main objectives to teach, to raise awareness, to engage and serve:
Develop and conduct foundational courses on meditation and spiritual science for our targeted audiences, with simple meditation techniques and literature, and enable them to impart meditation education to the business organizations and/or communities they serve.
Carry out long duration meditation & manifestation programs with businesses and organizations for their leadership teams, in order to help them progress through their challenges and the achievement of their goals.
Publish periodicals and various spiritual and mindfulness meditation content to raise awareness, expand the teaching and support the growth of individuals. Make the literature available in multiple languages in the form of online videos and blogs, e-Newsletters, books, brochures etc. and distributed to our targeted audiences and thousands of leaders.
Form “Buddha-CEO Leader” communities across various cities to exchange experiences, inspire their teams and encourage them to serve.
Establish multiple physical and virtual “Buddha-CEO Training Centers” across major cities and towns to carry out the Foundation activities across India and other countries abroad.
Establish “Buddha-CEO Training Academies” comprising of meditation halls, libraries, book spaces, conference rooms, greeneries, activity zones or any other necessary facilities, and leading up to establish a world class university with exclusive meditation curriculum for organizations.
Help Buddha-CEO Leaders with meditation service projects and enable them to serve by way of:
Organize community meditation service events led by the “Buddha-CEO” leaders in their areas
Support education institutions that propose meditation-based transformation as well as “Buddha-CEO Leadership Principles” to students even from their young age.
Promote and support the activities of Pyramid Spiritual Societies Movement and of other organizations that align to the core principles and vision of the Buddha-CEO Quantum Foundation, in establishing world peace, harmony, and “fulfilling lives” for every individual and living being on the planet Earth.
As a consequence of enabling leaders with meditation wisdom, the Buddha- CEO foundation aims to naturally increase among the overall awareness and active support of eco-friendly and environmental initiatives, to develop and protect forests, clean water, organic farming, animals and nature in general.
