520    Looking back to the ancient knowledge of the Indian 
       scripture, the Upanishads, Ram Nidumolu finds the core 
       philosophy of sustainable leadership that's needed today. 
       In this remarkable book, he uses a powerful parable from 
       these scriptures to create a business vision that our 
       world desperately needs. There are two birds, two sweet 
       friends, who dwell in the selfsame tree, says the 
       Upanishads. The first bird, dwelling on the lower part of 
       the tree, lives in sorrow and anxiety. Unable to see 
       beyond the branches, it hops around compulsively indulging
       its appetites, eating every fruit, sweet and sour. The 
       other bird, higher up, can see the whole tree and the 
       wider world--this perspective puts it in touch with its 
       innate sense of being, the quality of existence that it 
       shares in common with all other living beings and the 
       natural world. Content, it looks on in compassionate 
       silence at the other bird. Ram Nidumolu's provocative book
       on business leadership uses this allegory from Indian 
       scripture to highlight why many businesses are distrusted 
       by the public and contribute to social ills like 
       environmental destruction, wealth inequality, and climate 
       change: they mimic the bird on the lower branch. But can 
       business, compassion, and stewardship really coexist? 
       Ram's surprising insight is to hearken back to the 
       earliest Indian philosophical texts to reclaim their 
       lessons for acting in accordance with our connection to 
       Being. He outlines a four-part framework for what he calls
       being-centered leadership and offers examples of this kind
       of leadership in action, from companies such as Harley 
       Davidson, Timberland, Puma, Pepsi, and many others. It is 
       time, he writes, to look up from our rickety perch on the 
       lower branch of a storm-tossed tree and begin the journey 
       to the higher branch.
