Concentration and Meditation

Concentration and Meditation was written by Swami Paramananda (1884–1940) and published in USA in 1912. He was a practitioner and teacher of vedanta. He was a pupil of the better known Swami Vivekananda and he became a member of the Ramakrishna order on his seventeenth birthday. A few years later he assisted in establishing the first vedanta center in USA. It still exists today. In Concentration and Meditation he outlines the fundamental mindset necessary in order to initiate meditation: 

“As long as we identify ourselves with conditions, we suffer ; but when we cease to identify ourselves with these passing conditions, we never really suffer.”
