Dev Dutt: Swami ji pranam, main aap se yeh janna na chata hu ki mann ko kabu main
kaise rakha jaye.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you.
Question put by you about concentration of mind was also put by Arjun to Krishna in Bhagwad Geeta shloka 6/35. I think the comments written by me, with the blessings of God, on Bhagwad Geeta , named Bhagwad Geeta – Ek Vedic Rahasya (in hindi)is with you. So, please read its
answer where you’ll find “Abhyasein Vairagyein Tu Kaunteya” i.e., Oh! Arjun concentration of mind is achieved by daily practice of Yog, Yajyen, name jaap and indulging in asceticsm. I mean to say, daily practice is required and when mind (mann) wanders, it should be again fixed with in the agya-chakra i.e., within two eyebrows. Secondly, the main thing is that meditation is the seventh stage of Ashtang Yoga, to reach it, one will’ve to cross six earlier stages duly perfected therein. The stages are- yam, Niyam, asan, Prannayam, pratyahaar and dharnna. So, please also try to study Yog shastra and Ashtang yoga Philosophy mentioned therein, to do daily practice, to get perfection,
as stated above. But one should never be demoralized. Secondly the said Vedic worship will never go in vain. It is counted in next birth and by this worship, a person gets next birth in better family where facilities to continue his worship exist (Bhagwad Geeta shloka 6/42 refers).
