DHARANA – BHAVAN’S INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF BUSINESS

Any good beginning is providential. The thought process to start a business journal began two years ago. Several business journals, a critical look revealed, are function-specific or general, covering the whole gamut of business. Further exploration made it clear that there is a need for a journal which documented the patterns and processes of management practices.

This led to the birth of   DHARANA – BHAVAN’S INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF BUSINESS.

In Yogavasistha’s Yoga Sutra, the sage expounds three states of mind which are the processes of evolution. The first is ‘Dhyana’- the state of concentration. The mind of the seeker of knowledge converges overtime to explore the inner world. The mind reaches a state overtime, wherein the senses are held together.

When that happens, the state of ‘Dharana’ is reached. The same mind progresses towards the state of ‘Samadhi’ – the state of realisation. Dharana is interpreted as – ‘Nature Holds us Together’. In an organizational setting, people consolidate their contribution by maintaining individuality and collective wisdom.

DHARANAdocuments thought processes of researchers, practitioners and the like. This is a long journey. DHARANA is with people who can contribute to thinking on management practices. Let us join to codify thinking in this area of management.
