Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri, Vice-Chairman, Mata Amritanandamayi Math and President, Board of Management, Amrita University, recently addressed faculty, staff and students at the 13th convocation ceremony held at Coimbatore campus on August 21, 2016. Included below are excerpts from his talk. We live in a ‘Result Oriented Society.’ Our parents, teachers, society and people around us have conditioned our minds in such a way that we don’t want to do anything unless we are paid, unless we get something in return. WIIFM… What Is In It For Me…? This goes on within our minds almost like a mantra. It is high time that we seriously think to bring about a change both in our focus and attitude. Parents, teachers and leaders should encourage our students to change their focus from, ‘Result to Action.’ Action is more important. When focus on action becomes 100 percent, when dedication in action arises, productivity increases automatically.
