The Logical Yogi
Explain your idea in details:
The Logical Yogi is a startup that guides people in the path of Jnana Yoga, for a mental, social and spiritual well-being. The techniques that we offer trigger ones intellect and help him/her in self-realization. We teach methods specially developed to positively affect members in mental health. We provide creative content videos, articles that cover various topics such as history, philosophies, spirituality that both entertain and tweak the viewers intelligence. All concepts we cover will be backed up by science and mathematics. We make the toughest form of yoga, easy to comprehend through our service. People knowingly or unknowingly follow spiritual practices in form of religion and other related belief systems. One such technique developed by Indian yogis is Yoga. Yogi Patanjali describes yoga as Control of mind. There are different types of yoga like karma (work), Bhakti (devotion), Raja (meditation), Jnana. Jnana Yoga needs a strong command over other three types. Often not touched yoga form, this school of knowledge is difficult for our mind to comprehend. The Logical Yogi transfers Jnana Yoga, the ancient school of thought to present day to meet the current day requirements. Jnana Yoga is a process to sharpen the intellect to a point where it can "penetrate through the process of life and show you what is true and what is not true." People spend quality time on internet during the covid-19 pandemic. We introduce them with unique spiritual content in different languages through social media and spread our easy tricks and techniques that would help one progress in the path of Jnana Yoga. We serve as a guide, a guru, a mentor for the members to maintain a healthy mind. Once realizations happen within us, the differences between us seizes to exist.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The main objective of spirituality practices all around the world is to make people understand that they and the outer world is nothing but the same. There are many techniques being practiced today. The techniques, which The Logical Yogi provides is a very simple set of techniques requiring much less time when compared to others, and doesn't expect any physical movements. It deals entirely with the mind. Just watching videos we provide, articles and books, webinars we work on, just listening to it is more than sufficient. Gradually as time passes, people would realize the impact of our methods and would use it throughout their lives. Once realization happens, people would treat others with love, affection and help them. People would avoid social divisions as it would start to seem inhuman and outdated. Equality can be realized when self-realization happens.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The Logical Yogi is a first of its kind Spiritual startup that entirely focuses on members with causing a need to strain. We dont expect the members to move their body here or there or not load their mind with loads of information through our videos. Time is precious, and we wouldnt like to waste others. We begin with simplistic content; use very common day to day words which are not rocket science, and interesting techniques which would actually end up like a fun activity. The Logical Yogi provides members with techniques that can be used till the end. By time, we will have community members spreading the techniques. We would release books, magazines, conduct workshops to train our mind, webinars, talk shows, etc. Directly or indirectly, we have impacted around 20 members for good. They have felt a change in their thought process and mind. They felt a need to spread The Logical Yogis methods to other people too. They are requesting us for more content, which is very motivating to us. Both they as well as we are having a healthy outlook. We have touched a very small group of people. We are ready with initial content that would appeal to all sections of people. The idea would sustain because it is full of free techniques that is easily comprehensible.
I, Logesh Raja Mu, born on 27th October 1996, completed my undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering in 2018 after which I worked for a brief period in two companies, at Escorts Limited as a Graduate Engineering Trainee and at Byjus as Business Development Associate. Currently I am working in a startup called GoHaiku which is specialized in School transportation services. GoHaiku, a subsidiary of Sixagon Technologies private Limited, came up first in Entrepreneurship challenge at Faculty of Management Studies , Delhi in 2019, which included cash prizes. Also we in the GoHaiku team got selected for NSRCEL cell at Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore for an incubation program and potentially a launchpad. I developed an interest in the field of spirituality and philosophy during my free time and I gained lot of clarity in diverse fields through internet. Sometimes I thought I was overthinking and going mad, but found out that the questioning I made within myself was one of the beginning steps which leads to self-realization, as stated by Ramana Maharishi who spoke Advaita Vedanta philosophy. I felt there is a gap between science and spirituality for a long time that must be adjusted to benefit the people. To do so I developed some techniques using mathematics to look at subjects in a more analytical way. The need and technique has combined in the form of my startup idea, which I call The Logical Yogi.
