by Akhaya Kumar Nayak
International Journal of Indian Culture and Business Management (IJICBM), Vol. 16, No. 1, 2018

Abstract: Bhagavad Gita, according to the Indian philosopher Adi Sankaracharya is a summary of all the Vedic Literatures1. Divided into 18 chapters, this Indian scripture deciphers five major branches of knowledge: Isvara (the Supreme God), Jiva (the spirit soul/the living entity), Prakriti (the material nature), Kala (the time), and Karma (the activities) in seven hundred verses. Many important traits of an effective leader emerge from various chapters of this text. The objective of this paper is to describe the attributes and activities of an effective leader as prescribed in Bhagavad Gita. The paper employs the methodology of hermeneutics to do so.
