Concentration, the Key to Success in Life and Meditation
With Swami Jyotirmayananda

“Practice concentration of mind. Introspect and watch the mind carefully. Fix the mind on one object, one idea. Concentration purifies and calms the surging emotions, strengthens the current of thought and clarifies the ideas. During concentration, the mind becomes calm, serene and steady.” – Swami Sivananda


The ability to concentrate is not only essential for meditation, it is the key to success in any endeavour. Practicing concentration has many benefits. It strengthens the way we connect thoughts and ideas in the brain – making it easier to grasp difficult, complex or confusing concepts. Concentration energizes the mind, boosts efficiency and brings about serenity, insight and cheerfulness.

We will be practising simple exercises to lengthen the attention span and enhance the ability to concentrate, which can boost the memory and benefit ones psychological health.

• Concentration, the key to inner contentment
• The joyful practice of concentration exercises
• Overcoming distraction and mental restlessness
• How to develop your memory
