This book reflects on the models of leadership espoused by ancient Indic traditions, in particular the Advaita Vedanta tradition. Focusing primarily on the Rajarshi—'the philosopher king’—the essays in the volume showcase how using these models in contemporary society could lead to the creation of self-aware and empathic leaders, and an inclusive society.

The book explores examples of the Brahmarshi or the wise scholar, Rajarshi or the wise ruler and, Devarshi or the visionary to bring together all the ideal virtues of inclusive leadership in the current cultural and political space. The essays in the volume adopt a critical sociological philosophical, and management lens to analyse the Indic traditions and dharmic concepts. The volume uses concepts such as—dharma, karma and, yoga along with organisational psychology, technology, and management, to arrive at the concept of transcendental leadership. It theorises new definitions of the Rajarshi ideal, which can be used towards public service, social transformation and self-discovery.

The volume will be useful for scholars and academics interested in Indic philosophies of leadership and governance, sociology, and social and political inclusivity. It will also be useful for readers in public administration, business and management.
