Mentoring Names from Indian History (mythology)
How is it that Krishna's name does not figure any where as a historical evidence on mentoring? Anyone who knows about the Mahabharata or The Bhagavat Gita would probably assign Lord Krishna as one of the best suited names of a Mentor.

Hi, Mahabharata was a well written story so being mythological there cannot be any historic evidence attached to this.
For me, Krishna would be similar to Merlin in terms of legend but not equal to Aristotle.

Legend vs Practice

I guess, Krishna is the best mentor connecting to Bhagavat Gita, as his teachings made the battle into a success. However in practice there are more day to day problems to be solved and move around in order to achieve a point through struggle.

Chanakya was the best mentor in Indian history according to me.

Krishna as Mentor
Dilip Khanal, Member
The character Krishna, as depicted in Mahabharata, is too complex to understand.
For me, Krishna is a source of eternal knowledge and many new management philosophies can be related with his teachings through Bhagwad Geeta.
However, most management philosophies are confined to an organization, the biggest could be MNC, and Krishna's teachings like Karma is very difficult to relate with present material belief system.
Yet, management pundits need to research on his teachings and find ways to convince how they could be relevant today.
