Description About the author
 
The Buddha on Strategies for Managing Your Business and Your Life
" One rule my Tibetan Lama had given me about going to work in a normal business office was that I keep quiet about being a Buddhist. I was to wear my hair at normal length (rather than shaved ) , dress in normal clothes. Whatever Buddhist principles I used in my work had to be applied quietly, without any announcement or fanfare. I was to be a Buddhist sage on the inside, and a normal American businessman on the outside." And so I set about trying to run the Diamond Division by Buddhist principles, without anyone knowing it. Early in the game I established an understanding with my partners: I was responsible for managing every aspect of the division and realizing a healthy profit on the stones; and in return I had complete authority over hiring and firing, over pay and raises, over the hours my people worked, and who took which responsibilty. I only had to deliver the product on time, and with a good profit. "This book is the story of how I built the Diamond Division at Andin International, using principles culled from the ancient wisdom of Buddhism, from nothing into a worldwide operation, generating many millions of dollars per year. I did not do so alone, nor were my views the only ones we followed, but I can say that the majority of the decisions and policies in our division during my tenure as a vice president were driven by the principles you will find in this book."-

The Diamond Cutter, Geshe Michael Roach, Doubleday, 227 pp, HC, $21.95.
