In these challenging times of humanity, we should be a part of the solution, not the part of the problem, said Sadhguru Ji, Founder, Isha Foundation

 

PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry organized an interactive session with Indian Yogi and Spiritual Guru, Sadguru Ji, Founder, Isha Foundation on 23rd April 2020. The session was attended by thousands of people all around the world.

Sadhguru Ji deliberated on the seriousness of the pandemic and the loss of humanity and business during these times. This is an uncertain situation that has happened in the past as well and humanity needs to be strong enough to come out of it.

Our fundamental responsibility at this point in time is to make sure that we stay strong, healthy and stay alive and also make sure that people around us are healthy and survive too. Once we all survive and come out strong, the revival and bouncing back of economy can happen in one way or the other ways with efficient planning, said Sadhguru Ji.

We as citizens need to act responsibly and fully support the government in its initiatives and measures to contain the spread of Covid 19, as the fight against the virus is only possible with full peoples participation, said Sadhguru Ji.

India's ability to bounce back , in terms of economy, if we have the virus under control by September 2020, is very promising only if we do the smart planning and implementation of getting foreign investments, as it will be nearly impossible to kickstart within ourselves without foreign investments flowing into the economy, said Sadhguru Ji.

Sadhguri Ji urged the industry stakeholders to work together with the government in making India the new home market for developed Nations like the United Sates , Japan and Europe , among others.

All the industries need to come out with a plan and alternatives to prosper in future times and help the economy regain its path of growth, said Sadhguru Ji

Sadhguru Ji appreciated the efforts India has put in controlling the spread despite such a dense population. He also emphasized that citizen participation and cooperation are really important in these times and it's our responsibility to support each other.

Our Mind, Soul, and Body should be at our best to find a solution in whatever areas of business we are in. The real wealth lies in the human potential and we now need to focus on skill development for the growth of the nation, as we have a timeline for just another 10 - 15 years to take the full advantage of our demography, said Sadhguru Ji.

Let us not create uncertainty worst by creating fear in our minds of the ongoing Covid-19 virus, instead act responsibly by taking utmost precautions, because instead of creating our future we will end up destroying our future by creating fear in our minds, said Sadhguru Ji.

Dr. D K Aggarwal, President, PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, expressed his gratitude towards the positive discourse by, which is sure to have a positive impact and improve the well-being of individuals in these times of uncertainty and fear.

We are facing a war like situation, caused by the spread of COVID-19, which is adversely impacting the businesses and personal life of each individual across the globe. There is a lot of negativity around us and there is a loss of humanity and businesses as well. The presence, guidance, and blessings of Sadhguru Ji are really important and essential during this time to ease out the stress faced by the Nations, its people and the economy, said Dr. D K Aggarwal.

Shri Mahesh Gupta, Former President , PHD Chamber, the situation is very uncertain in the current times and we in the business have great responsibility to understand the criticality of the situation and move forward.

Though human happens to look towards towards both positive and negatives of the situation but in these times of uncertainty the thoughts of the mind are more skewed towards the negatives, and when we as leaders think negative we happen to spread it to all our working environments and the workers, Sadhguru Ji we seek your guidance and words of wisdom to overcome the negative thoughts in these crucial and uncertain times, said Shri Mahesh Gupta.

Shri Gopal Jiwrajka, in times of serious trouble like the Covid-19 we have the opportunity to either go to elected representatives, the government, or the selected few like your kind self , Sadhguru Ji, as you have the power to influence the mind and soul with positivity in these trying and uncertain times.
