into deep meditation and Nirvikalpa Samadhi.
Be sincere at heart. Care not for the…

Concentration is the only way to get rid of the worldly miseries and tribulations. Your only
duty is to practise concentration. You have taken this body to practise concentration and through
concentration to realise the Self.
When you read a book you must read it with concentration. There is no use of skipping over
the pages in a hurried manner. Read one page in the Gita. Close the book. Concentrate on what you
have read. Find out parallel lines in Mahabharata,…
