Description of the Sub-Subject: Kazuo Inamori (Japanese Businessman).

The founder of Kyocera and former Director of the Japan Airlines, Dr Kazuo Inamori was born in Kagoshima (Japan) in 1932. Currently; Inamori is also the President Emeritus of these companies and Buddhist monk.

In the following sentence of Dr Inamori; we find a Buddhist influence:

No need to be isolated from the world to find enlightenment, you should find in your work. The financial aspects of the work are very few when compared to the actual capacity that it has to increase the value of your soul.” Kazuo Inamori

One of the most extraordinary features of Dr Inamori is his strong belief in Buddhism and the application of the Buddhist ethical principles in business management. Many of his views are based on the Buddhist principles like Karma.

“As a devout of the teachings of Siddartha, the Buddha, I deem that we should remember the philosophical teachings and ethical values of the Buddha: to recognise when one has received enough.”

“As long as I live, I would like to continue to contribute to the material and spiritual happiness of humanity and society.” Dr Inamori
