  It looked like a typical business meeting. Sixmen, neatly dressed in white shirts and ties filed intothe boardroom of a small Jakarta company and satdown at a long table. But instead of consulting filesor hearing reports, they closed their eyes and beganto meditate, consulting the spirits of ancientJavanese kings. Mysticism touches almost everyaspect of life in Indonesia and business is no exception. One of the meditators said his weeklymeditation sessions are aimed mainly at bringing the peace of mind that makes for gooddecision-making. But the insight gained from mystic communication with spirits of wisekings has also helped boost the profits of his five companies.

  Mysticism and profits have come together since the 13th century introduction of Islam toIndonesia by Indian Moslem merchants. Those devout traders, called ‘Wali Ullah’ or ‘thoseclose to God, ’ energetically spread both trade and religion by adapting their appeals to thenative mysticism of Java. Legends attribute magic power of foreknowledge to the WaliUllah. These powers were believed to be gained through meditation and fasting.

  Businessman Hadisiko said his group fasts and meditates all night every Thursday tobecome closer to God and to contact the spirits of the great men of the past. ‘If we want toemploy someone at the managerial level, we meditate together and often the message comesthat this man can’t hole onto money or he is untrustworthy. Or maybe the spirits will tell ushe should be hired.’ Hadiziko hastened to add that his companies also hold modern personnelmanagement systems and that formal qualifications are essential for a candidate even to beconsidered. Perspective investments also are considered through mystic meditation. ‘With themind relaxed and open, it is easier to be objective in judging the risk of a new venture. Meditation and contact with the wisdom of the old leaders sharpens your own insight andintuition. Then you have to apply that intuition to the information you have and work hard tobe successful. ’ Mystic meditation helped reverse a business slide his companiesexperienced in the mid-1980. Operating with normal business procedures, he lost more than $ 3 millions in that year alone. Meditation brought back his peace of mind. Putting the rightpersons in the right jobs and gaining confidence in his business decisions were the keys to aturning around that has brought expansion and profitability. The mysticism in Handspike’sboardroom is part of a growing movement in Indonesia called Kebatinan – the ‘search for theinner self.’

  One of his managers, Yusuf Soemado, who studied business administration at HarvardUniversity, compared the idea of mystic management to western system of positive thinking. ‘Willpower and subconscious mind are recognized as important factors in business. Suchapproaches as psycho-cybernetics, Carnegie’s think and growth rates, or the power of positivethinking are western attempts to tap the same higher intelligence that we contact throughmeditation,’ he said.
