Teachings

Love is the center-point of life. We should perform all our actions while remaining focused on this center-point.
An artist paints with focus; the painting becomes complete only through ekagrata (one-pointedness). Similarly, whatever is our goal, we need focus on that to make it complete.
Concentration and love are one - like two sides of a coin. Love should be there if you want concentration.
When a flower is still a bud, we cannot experience its beauty or fragrance. We have to wait patiently for the bud to unfold on its own. Only then can we fully experience its beauty and fragrance.
We need to focus on our destination.  Let the thoughts arising in your mind pass by, like watching scenery through the window of a car. The thoughts cannot affect you if you don't allow them to capture your attention.
Our efforts to remove hatred and indifference from the world begin by trying to remove them from our own mind.
To face different situations in life with presence of mind and mental poise, first we have to train the mind.
How to attain concentration? There are no short cuts. Constant practice is needed. In the beginning, it is a great thing if by chance we get even one or two minutes of concentration in an hour. We should make continuous and sincere effort without stopping until we gain one pointed concentration.
