Moral values are always there in life of people of the world. Wisdom of any nation has its ethical standards which can be seen in its practices. The code of conduct defined in the modern management studies is for the entrepreneurs so that they can run their enterprise properly. These are also described as Yamas and Niyamas in the ancient Vedas. These have been set up by the people of ancient India to manage the humanity and protect them for misconducts. We are intellectualizing the study of ancient wisdom and describing its significant part in setting up ethical standards for management professionals. If humans behaves morally then, organizations automatically runs in profit. This paper is focusing on ancient ethical literary writings and concluding a new theme of moral values. This study will not enhance the literary studies of ethics, but also integrate the management science with literature.
