‘Spirituality at Work’ is the recommended textbook 
for the ‘Integral Karmayoga’ course at IIT Madras

In a world of rapid changes, Spirituality at Work will serve as an inspiration to find new gateways to success. This book is based on the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita. It also draws inspiration from the renowned sage Sri Aurobindo’s ‘Essays on the Gita’.

As Stephen Covey has stated: ‘Despite all our gains in technology, product innovation and world markets, most people are not thriving in the organisations they work for. They are neither fulfilled nor excited.’ Dr. Devdas Menon hopes to change this mindset of today’s youth by inspiring, motivating and raising their aspirational levels. His book draws its content based on a theme-wise, judicious selection of 162 verses from the Gita. An integrated practice of spirituality through work, knowledge, and devotion – referred to as ‘Integral Karmayoga’, is the way forward. Its focus is on finding fulfilment in life through the application of conscious will.

A professor at IIT Madras and author of the bestseller ‘Stop Sleepwalking Through Life!’ Dr. Menon makes Spirituality at Work come alive. He has introduced courses such as Self-Awareness and Integral Karmayoga with great success. He knows how to make the wisdom of the Gita relevant to young adults facing the challenges of a competitive work environment – and help them create an enriched life.

    ‘In a world of much turbulence and rapid changes, Spirituality at Work can help us find our own inner strength and serve as an inspiration to find new gateways. I thank Devdas Menon for sharing his deep insight and wisdom, and I very much recommend this book to anyone interested in self-development. This book is based on the wisdom from the ancient Indian scripture, Bhagavad Gita. It draws inspiration from the famous sage of India, Sri Aurobindo, and the author’s own experiences and interpretations. The author makes the Gita come alive with his profound and inspiring way of presenting the message. He has introduced courses such as Self Awareness and Integral Karmayoga at IIT Madras with great success, and knows how to present ancient wisdom to young people in a modern world.’

    ‘I have truly learned a great deal about myself after taking the Integral Karmayoga course at IIT Madras. A big shift in my attitude has also happened. Now, whenever my routine is disturbed or I am stuck in unhealthy habits, I am able to come out of that ignorance quickly. I am not easily let down by external challenges, and feel more focussed and efficient at work. I have also been able to quit unhealthy habits (such as addiction to social networking, netsurfing, pornography), and to nurture healthy ones (getting up early every morning, exercising, meditating). All this has brought more energy, enthusiasm and vitality in my life. I feel more peaceful and grounded after meditation.’

    ‘This wonderful book makes it clear that the solutions to all our problems are to be found through the problems themselves. The choice to challenge our lower self and make progress has to be taken right now, not later. This book has made me become more resolute. My decision-making is now wiser and firmer. It has also made me more compassionate and kinder to my fellow beings. I may never “finish reading” this book. I have to go over it, again and again, till it helps me truly evolve and ascend into higher nature.’

    ‘Spirituality is often, mistakenly, associated with withdrawal from life and action. This book comes as a refreshing reminder to show us that not only can our daily work be a means for spiritual
    progress, but the very spiritual progress is our most effective means to excel in our field of work and live a deeply fulfilling life, contributing to the general progress of humanity. Devdas Menon
    has done a masterful rendering of the essential wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita for the new generation in a language that is simple, practical and rooted in his own spiritual and professional experience. It is a great joy to see that this book is coming from someone who is living the teachings of the Gita. This is an essential book for all aspirants who want to transform their daily life activities into a field of Karmayoga.’

    ‘Life moves at an incredibly fast pace in today’s highly competitive world, and we feel stressed and confused when we (especially women) have to manage both career and home. This book really
    helps one explore and understand one’s own self, realise one’s inner strength and find inspiration for meaningful and healthy living. The depiction and descriptions of the three gunas pinpoint
    with clarity as to exactly how we normally function in the lower nature, unconsciously. We realise clearly what needs to be done for us to drop dysfunctional habits and to evolve consciously. I find
    myself to be a much happier, contented and inspired person after the living experience of reading and re-reading this book.’

    ‘I highly recommend this book to get the most out of one’s life. It is a “how to” book on realising Peace, Satisfaction and Happiness in Life. I understand that this book is a compilation of the notes the
    author uses in his class to teach students in their early twenties. I found it equally absorbing, thought-provoking and useful for my generation of retired folks in their seventies. This book indeed is a
    classic for people of all ages.’

    ‘Devdas Menon is a world-class structural engineering professor. But his mission is much larger: to help awaken self-awareness and Self-realization in students, professionals, teachers and others. He
    does this with profound passion and selflessness. His earlier book, Stop Sleep Walking Through Life!, is bringing about transformation in many students and professionals, as they make choices during their
    life. His latest work, Spirituality at Work, based on the Gita, will help seekers with valuable guidance on many of the issues we face in what he calls a ‘Living Battlefield’ of life. His words and wisdom
    have positively impacted me and several of my colleagues at all levels at our R&D center in India, enhancing not only productivity at work but also fulfilment in personal life. The way he brings
    equanimity and peace into tough situations using the ‘inner meaning’ from the Gita quenches many boiling issues. Embracing the teachings from this book will help in transforming the
    corporate soldiers of our industry from a self-centered short-term results pursuit to a deeper fulfilment, by addressing the burning needs of the society, and meeting customer demands in a highly
    ethical, moral, meaningful and fulfilling way. I am personally grateful for his teachings and interventions during many challenging situations at work.’
