The Architecture of Jnana Yoga or Yoga for Intellectuals in Success in Material World

The meaning of Yog

The act of harnessing

Sum total
A system of concentration and meditation
Means of salvation
A theory or practice of abstract meditation undertaken to bring the soul towards or into union with the super soul
Concentrational exercise
Union with the universal soul by means of contemplation
Joining together
One of the six schools of indian philosophy
An auspicious or opportune moment
Of sutras on composed by the sage Patajali

The worg "yog" has so many meanings. So we have to use appropriate meanings to describe the functions or objectives of Yoga for attaining success in intellectual pursuits in the material world and the sub-processes prescribed by scholars of vedic and post vedic tradition.

In this article such an attempt will be made.

What a brahmin has to do?

Learn, teach, do yajnas, help others to do yajnas, to take daan, to give daan.

Why daan?

Brahmins, the intellectual community has to contribute value to the other professions so that there is surplus. Daan is given out of surplus. It is only when intellectual really contribute and help other professions to create surplus that they have the means to live. They are asked to give daan also. What does it mean? The brahmin or the intellectual person is not expected to accumulate wealth. So whenever he has surplus he is asked to give daan.

A brahmin is to learn on a continuous basis. Tapas or present day research was prescribed for Brahmins. Purans were heard by brahmins first. Then then promoted the purans among others.

What is yajna?  Yajna is practicing the knowledge. The tapas or research may produce new knowledge. But it has to be put in practice to give benefits to society. Brahmins are asked to perform yajnas for the benefit of society and also to support yajnas performed by other professionals.

Entertainment is essential for life. Apart from sleep, entertainment relaxes the tired parts of the body, and provides energy to them to renew the economic work. Watching cricket or films is not waste of time, it is appropriate usage of part of 16 hours if we say we have to sleep an average of 8 hours in a day. - Narayana Rao

World of thoughts only provides joy and happiness. Not World of Things. -   Swami Sukhabodhananda

“Frequently, when I suggest to people that they detach from a person or problem, they recoil in horror. “Oh, no!” they say. “I could never do that. I love him, or her, too much. I care too much to do that. This problem or person is too important to me. I have to stay attached!” My answer to that is, “WHO SAYS YOU HAVE TO?” I’ve got news—good news. We don’t “have to.” There’s a better way. It’s called “detachment.” It may be scary at first, but it will ultimately work better for everyone involved.”

"If you decide to change but don't tell anyone that you are changing it's going to take them really long to pick upon it. Instead tell them ... Now, people would be on the lookout for your changed behaviour and when you do change, people will be more aware of it and give you more credit for doing so."

Benefits of planning and recording ideas as and when they come,

You don’t have to think when and what to blog (already planned)
Your work will be more consistent as you planned it in advance and can make the posts consistent.
You come up with amazing and thoughtful ideas instead of writing something.
You can track what’s working and what’s not, what’s written and what’s possible (You can keep track of your performance of posts).
You are most likely to get ideas out of ideas during planning the calender

For each post topic that you enter in your planner, you can add more details.
