  • We become good at what we practice and most of us are experts at practicing distraction. We live in a society that trains us to multi-task and jump from one thing to another in an uncontrolled way. The great panacea for a world plagued by distraction is learning and practicing the art of concentration. Living as a Hindu monk for 10 years Dandapani was trained in understanding the mind. There he learned and practiced the fine art of bringing concentration into everyday life. In this talk, Dandapani will share spiritual tools to learn to create unwavering focus in our lives and the boundless benefits that result from it.

    Dandapani is a Hindu priest, speaker on self-development and an entrepreneur.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

    superb, simple, and soulful explanation............also I wish he would add that one of the greatest factors in successful concentration is the determination and passion to do so!! That will MAKE us realize that meditation will become the top priority in our lives!

    Don't get me wrong, I like this guy and all, but he probably doesn't have kids. I'd like to see him make a documentary of him successfully teaching at least 10 ADD kids how to focus. Or maybe just kids in general. Why aren't there programs that offer this to parents if it's so easy once you know how?

    BUT IF THY ARE ASKING MONEY OR SUPPORT IN ANYWAYS, THERE JUST THE SAME AS OTHERS PRETENDING THEY KNOW, THIS PEOPLE ARE SCAMMER, BA ASHAME OF YOUR SELF ,

  • ShadoWolf
    ShadoWolf 4 месяца назад

    Something else that occurred to me is that people usually do stuff they do not want and thus their attention flip-flops so to prevent that, try to concentrate on things you do want to do or things that interest you, the trick is to just do one thing at a time, simply give your full energy to whatever you are doing if you want to do it. Do not randomly pick something to focus one, will it, want it first.
