The Catharsis of Self
The focus of the Vedas is on self-management by individuals so that one remains unblemished and resolute even under trying and tough circumstances.
Vedic self-management refers to the art of managing the self as an individual and wholesome entity. At this micro level, one has to manage his body at the gross level, the soul at the subtlest level and the mind and intellect at the intermediary levels. Without proper management of the self, there cannot be excellence coupled with ethics, which form the basis for human emancipation. A human being possesses enormous powers and potentials, which have to be properly nourished and harnessed. Self-management constitutes an important part of human resource management.
