“Spirituality is an anchor for the pursuit of happiness and prosperity. Spirituality is human and not new, but we’ve forgotten about it. We are conditioned and live in a context. There is no room for spirituality.” Prof. Sharda Nandram’s words are instantly thought-provoking. On April 1, she gave her inaugural lecture at Nienrod Business School entitled: Spirituality: A System for Dealing with the Unknown. She now holds the Chair of Business and Spirituality.
Nandram explains that spirituality goes beyond what we see. “Spirituality deserves a prime place as a discipline in the sciences. Every discipline needs a definition, a method of research, and a vision.” Nandram draws on mathematics to show why it is necessary. “Mathematics also has aspects that are unknown. The character ‘infinity’ is there to deal with infinity or the unknown. Spirituality also searches for the unknown. This soft aspect of spirituality deserves the hard aspect that mathematics already has.”
Intuition as a basis
The mystery of spirituality should become clearer, according to Nandram. Solve problems from a different level of consciousness as you describe them. “We know how important intuition is for entrepreneurs. Intuition is the foundation. It requires a certain courage. The more you look for it, the more open it is. The more you give in, the more it comes to the surface. It comes to the surface, and the more creativity, the faster solutions can be thought of.”
Its main goal with the chair is to further develop spiritual discipline. “People know it’s important, but they’re still trapped in the tube of rationality. That’s not where spirituality is.” Nandram wants to help people open up and embrace the unknown in business. She wants to give them a lens to achieve science and business admissions to the unknown.
source of innovation
“In the unknown is an infinite source of innovation. This is where many entrepreneurs derive their ideas and get their successes from. Entrepreneurship begins with ideas that did not yet exist. Entrepreneurs rely on their infinite resources. You need this advantage more than the competition.” This characterizes you as an entrepreneur. You want to grow and develop, so you need your intuition. Spirituality is the cornerstone of this that gives room to the imagination. It is not measurable, but noticeable.”
Since the topic is not yet measurable, many people find it interesting to start with. Nandram: “What happens if they allow the unknown? How do they deal with it, how do they work together? What do they do? How does that lead to solutions? At this level of existence are the potentials of the unknown.”
According to Nandram, all new topics in science need fifteen to twenty years. She says she has patience. “Entrepreneurship has been awarded this time too. Spirituality requires courage and needs people to live it. I want to contribute to that through my work. I hope to gain more insight into the phenomenon of spirituality and how this can be in the service of sustainable happiness and prosperity In which organization,” Nandram said.
