Santosh: Man or buddhi me kya anter hai?
Swami Ram Swarup: Donon hee tatva raj, tam aur satva gunn se banein hain, ankh, naak kaan, jihva aur tvacha yeh panch gyanindriyan jo bhi gyan prapt kartee hain, woh pehle mann ko bhejtee hain, mann us gyan par manan karke usey buddhi ko bhejta hai aur buddhi phir is gyan ko jeevatma ko bhejtee hai. Buddhi hee achchha aur bura decision/phaisla letee hai, Buddhi shudh hogee to vichar shudh hongey aur hamare karma bhi shudh hongey aur yadi humn Vedic gyan nahi suneigey to buddhi shudh nahi hotee aur jeev bhrasht karma karne lag jaata hai. yahi antar hai.
Mannu: Sir mane question ans yad karta hu lakin bhul jata hai. Koi easy trick batay?
Swami Ram Swarup: Jub vidyarthi ya koi bhi purush brahmacharya paalan karta hai, uskee shareerik aur mansik shaktiyaan badtee hain aur uskee yaddasht apne aap bad jaatee hai. Isliye brahmacharya dharann karke jo bhi vidyarthi rozana asan aur prannayam ka abhyaas karta hai aur rozana hard study karta hai uskee smriti bahut tez ho jaati hai. In aadition, I paste my article below:-
STUDENT LOSING CONCENTRATION
Concentration is not made on mind, but mind has to be concentrated on particular point or subject etc. It requires practice of Yam, Niyam, Asan, Pranayaam, Pratyahar, Dharnna and Dhyan then one attains Samadhi. In this path, guidance of a spiritual master who knows Vedas and Ashtang Yoga philosophy is needed. Holy name jaap of God helps a lot. I have written a book on Yoga which can be sent on receipt of your postal address. However, personal guidance as stated is essential. It is a moral duty of a student to concentrate on hard study and to look after his health. Avoid bad society always concentrate on your Brahmacharya. Awake early in the morning and after bath-brush etc., do holy name jaap of God at least for fifteen minutes. Go for morning walk and light exercises daily. Take plenty of water i.e., at least 15-20 glasses in a day. Always respect your parents, elders and teachers. Must be soft spoken, avoid TV to see bad scenes, films etc. This all will help you to concentrate in your study. Whatever, you study and learn, try to write on rough book a lot without seeing books etc. Please refer to the book- “Brahamcharya-Dukh Nivarak Divya Manni”.
How to obtain success as a student
A student must do hard study with firm mind to get success. However, ‘WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY’ AND IT IS ALSO SAID THAT “NEVER BECOME NERVOUS AND TRY, TRY, TRY AGAIN.”
Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yoga, discharge moral duties to get progress simultaneously in education, science and in spiritualism, do daily havan, to make contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and kill the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.
One must awake early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises. Must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-vegetarian. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future.
THE HARD STUDY DONE BY STUDENTS AND THEIR GOOD HEALTH WILL SURE GIVE THEM SUCCESS TO MAKE THEM A GOOD EARNING HAND. THE STUDENT MUST ALSO CHANT GAYATRI MANTRA DAILY.
