The construction industry being challenging and stimulating, provides vast career and achievement scope but also vast pressure levels, which if not dealt well leads to anxiety, stress, depression, etc. In the recent times, cases of suicides, stress, and depression are on an increase. Also, present day economic systems of the industry are divorced from ethics. Workers have generated unethical trends making bribery and corruption too common in the industry. Current world's fiscal scene clearly shows that our economic thinking, models of planning and development are out of touch with reality and are estranged from ethics.
Although developments in the field of civil engineering have enabled man to have a huge material progress and live a comfortable life, people are far from experiencing true peace and satisfaction of mind. This indicates that our efforts are totally inclined towards the provision of relaxation or comfort to the body (physical conform), neglecting the inner needs or the spiritual needs of our mind and intellect. Of all our present time problems, this is the main cause. There is an urge to raise the employees by their spiritual empowerment. A number of multinational companies all around the world are now paying attention towards this science of meditation, spirituality and ethics for helping their employees, to save them from burnout and to for improving their efficiency and character. Hence, the paper touches the note that while ensuring steady material progress, it is equally essential to maintain spiritual progress. It frees the individual from sorrow, suffering, misery, pain, depression, fear, anxiety, illness, disease, insecurity and phobias and enables to experience constant true peace, true happiness, true love and lasting health, wealth and prosperity. It increases the potential of human mind to perform better in all respects. This paper depicts a review of previous research work done on similar titles and provides a common conclusion for all of them.
