Anyway, nobody is fooled. We all know the main reason organisations introduce hot-desking is to save on real estate costs. That's not a bad thing – it beats saving on salaries.
A shopping hierarchy doesn’t care. I’m just seeking the best price on acceptable garbage bags, clothing, electronics, and other things.
It is important to remember that this is a rather loose comparison to suggest that the Hindu seers who formulated the basic principles, beliefs, and practices of Hinduism understood human behavior and defined a model of ideal life based upon their understanding of human motivation. They believed that human behavior was motivated by four important needs: the need for physical comforts and bodily pleasures, the need for security through the order and regularity of family and society, the need for name, fame and recognition through knowledge of the scriptures and their practice, and the need for actualizing the hidden Self through austerities, and spiritual practices. Although, modern psychology was nonexistent then, as seers (observers) they understood the human behavior, and that it could be regulated within the religious framework both for the welfare of the individuals and for the welfare of society as a whole. The two models do approach the same idea rather differently and for different purposes. One important difference between them is that each of the four aims of Hinduism may involve the satisfaction of more than one category of needs in Maslow's hierarchy of needs. For example the practice of dharma may simultaneously lead to wealth, recognition in society and fulfillment of physical desires such as food, and shelter.
