Know How Hinduism Deeply Influenced Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, the name needs no introduction. He is the greatest entrepreneur of all time being the pioneer of Apple. Many of us don’t know that Jobs was a great believer of Karma which probably was his trigger for success too. Karma is the result of our actions which we can’t go without facing so one needs to be true to his conscience no matter what. It gives a overwhelming happiness when we think that a man of Steve Job’s repute has adhered to the ideology of Karma all his life. Needless to say, Karma has an association with Hinduism which establishes the fact that Steve Jobs too, was fond of Hindu philosophies. Of course, this is nothing new because Hinduism has absorbed devotees from different faiths for its liberal take on life.

Steve Jobs’s speech in Stanford University:

Steve Jobs delivered a motivating speech in Stanford University about simple living and high thinking which became a sensation. While addressing Stanford University graduates, he shared three life-changing stories which really moved them. The first story was about connecting dots, he second story was about love and loss and the third story revolved around his belief in Karma.

To brief the curious students into insights of Karma philosophy, Steve Jobs was quoted as saying:

“Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust everything, your gut, destiny, life, karma whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in life”.

This quote mirrors his way of thinking about life. Obviously, from the peak of success, it is easy to introspect and connect the dot by looking back. Also, we know a great deal about Karma and its effects through his speech here.

Furthermore, Steve was also quoted as saying- ” I would walk the seven miles across town every Sunday night to get a good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. O loved it”

 

This quote mirrors his way of thinking about life. Obviously, from the peak of success, it is easy to introspect and connect the dot by looking back. Also, we know a great deal about Karma and its effects through his speech here.

No wonder, this speech was one of his most quoted speeches. Below is the video of the career-changing and life-changing speech Steve Jobs had delivered.

Steve Jobs visited an Ashram in India:

Steve Jobs, the man who really changed the way how we communicate, had visited India in search of enlightenment. In the due course of his stay, he paid a visit to the famous Baba Neem Karoli ashram to understand the true teachings of Sanatana Dharma.

To conclude, we would highlight a few points from his lifestyle- he was a vegetarian, practiced yoga routinely and was known for his strong love and compassion for animals. These look like so much connected to Hinduism, don’t they?
