Spirituality and business are taken as two distinctive areas of human life. Business, at one hand, demands monetary outlook towards activities while spirituality is related to ascetic practices in life. Nurturing the two different and distinctive dimensions of human life together in a personality may be felt difficult and unacceptable to some thinkers due the possibility of overshadow effect of spirituality on the essential professional passion to avail business opportunities and face the challenges of rapidly changing business world. The youth in business world today is expected to be empowered with academic, technical and professional skills. Introduction of spirituality in the ideology of empowering youth can bring miraculous results in terms of ability of young entrepreneurs to see the opportunities and challenges in different perspectives and keep them undistracted and adhered in observing their dharma as entrepreneur. This combined nurturing among young entrepreneurs may show better results as the desired qualities of a successful entrepreneur can be better shaped and refined through spirituality as a practical psychology. The feature of the present youth to be passionate about manifestation of their business dreams is sufficient enough to accept this apparently impossible combination as spirituality is all about values for ultimate satisfaction. Thus, implementation of the learning from spirituality can ensure the business youth the ultimate satisfaction in their ventures and bring out more empowered youth for business opportunities and challenges.
