In his book, “Worship Sacrifice, Mahatma Gandhi developed a list of seven deadly sins of sacrificial worship. Seven dangers of human virtue, also known as Seven Social Sins and Seven Mistakes, was written by Gandhi.Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Science without humanity, Knowledge without character, Politics without principle, Commerce without morality, Worship without sacrifice.” These are some of the thoughts the Mahatma uses about the seven deadly sins of his life. But if we deep dive into these values, we find out that they as relevant today as ever.
In this video of #Spark360, Mr. Srikant Datar, Dean of Harvard Business School shares his interpretation of Gandhiji’s seven deadly sins. He says that we must use science to innovate and we must power engines of commerce to create wealth. But we must ensure that we do so without taking advantage of people, by always acting ethically, and by being aware of the privileges we enjoy.
