Anish: Charan Sparsh Swamiji, Swamiji thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge to ignorant people like me through this website. Kindly advice me how to improve my concentration and do meditation.Also send me valuable books on brahmacharya.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Thanking you, please.

Concentration is improved when an aspirant learns Ashtang Yoga Philosophy or starts learning from asan, prannayam, pratyahar and dharnna. Then, as a result, concentration i.e., to do meditation becomes very simple. At this stage, the aspirant can also concentrate on any worldly matter and gets success. So, I would advise you to learn asan and prannayam from a local acharya because I’m away and cannot teach you from here. Book on Brahamcharya –named “Brahamcharya- Dukh Nivarak Divya Manni” is written in Hindi and can be sent on receipt of your confirmation, please. The following books are written in English, based on eternal Vedic philosophy. Study of the same would give you immense knowledge about God, form of karmas (deeds) and break the shackles of blind faith.
